    Pearson. I should have known. These guys should just change their name to Indoctrination Book and Test, Inc.

    Oh, gosh, that pic of Julian Castro…so depressing that he was our mayor…but I see he feels right at home with his commie brother Barry.

    At this very moment, I reading the story of Alma and Amulek in the Book of Mormon. Right in front of their eyes Alma and Amulek are witnessing faithful, Christian men, women, and children thrown into the fire and destroyed. Amulek asks, “How can we witness this awful scene? Therefore let us stretch forth our hands, and exercise the power of God which is in us, and save them from the flames.” Alma is restrained by the Spirit and says, ” the Lord receiveth them up unto himself, in glory; and he doth suffer that they may do this thing, or that the people may do this thing unto them, according to the hardness of their hearts, that the judgments which he shall exercise upon them in his wrath may be just; and the blood of the innocent shall stand as a witness against them, yea, and cry mightily against them at the last day.” I believe that it will happen to the wicked people in ISIS. They will receive their punishment. These righteous who have died are martyrs unto the Lord. The evil will be judged and they will be found without mercy in the last day.

    He tazed him only twice? I’m surprised that he wasn’t tazed like 9 more times–insubordinate, entitled, brat. 17 or not, he was not complying. If he wants to avoid charges he needs to REMAIN SILENT. Please, remain silent.

    There’s a reason why the Riddick movies don’t make money and the Furious ones do:
    –The Riddick movies are cynical, atheistic, and banal.
    –The Furious movies are fun, family-oriented, and loaded with action.
    ‘Nuff said.

    The irony here is that about 6 hours before the game, Jay Bilas was on ESPN radio lauding the class, poise and commitment of these Kentucky players saying, “if these guys were on Duke or Wisconsin, we would be praising them and admiring their mature and steadfast manners. But because they wear Kentucky uniforms, we tend to dismiss that.” Perhaps Jay spoke too soon. Maybe they should all come back next year and try again (translation: give up the NBA fortune for a year) and they might make another run.

    You know, I used to tease Jason Chaffetz when I used to work with him back in 1993/1994 at a local Utah company. Now I have nothing but respect for him. He has been dogged in his defense of our civil liberties and I’m happy to say that I am an acquaintance of his. I want to be stronger in my defense of the gloriously divine Constitution, and condemn tyranny where’er it exists.

    I disagree. The book is not difficult to read if you are an ardent reader. Yes, it’s elevated, but I enjoy that; too often the complexities of war and strategy are made too simple and we may run the risk of deeming it immaterial and be dismissive about it. I want the full exposition from experts in all its density and complete incorporation. As Francis Bacon said, “Read not to contradict…nor to believe and take for granted…but to weigh and consider”.

    I got 15 out of 55.
    Gone Girl
    Punch Drunk Love
    12 Years a Slave
    The Godfather Part II
    The Road
    Raging Bull
    Before Sunrise
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    The Searchers
    The Usual Suspects

    I have to admit, of the 15 I knew, I’ve only seen 6. Of the 40 I didn’t know, I’ve only seen 10 of those films. And I’ve seen a lot of movies.

    I thought he was going to invite her to celebrate with him. “C’mon, we’ll go hit all the cool spots in Louisville, paint the town red–yeah, yeah, I know I’m not THAT Tony Parker, but…” That’s the impression I got.

    After comparing the 2 songs, the beat appears to be the same as Marvin’s. According to copyright laws, very few bars have to be similar in order for someone to infringe on intellectual property. Intentional or not, that beat could have been stored up in Pharrell’s noggin and come out as “Blurred Lines” in the studio. Ironically, he could have payed the Gaye family $60,000 (or some preset amount) to sample that beat way ahead of time and that would have been the end of it. (Personally, I’m glad. Robin and Pharrell thrust that filthy track onto America’s psyche and they should be punished– :)

    Hey, at least they’re saying ISIS (instead of ISIL) in the skit. Much better than the President can do. His entire administration is satire.

    I’m interested to know why the AP location says Boise–Boise is NOT in Canyon County. Sounds like this guy was tried in Nampa or Caldwell. At any rate, Commander KIRK needs to set foot into the Starship Enter-PRISON. He was found guilty. Man, it is just technicality after technicality after technicality. Soon there will be no justice and no one really will pay for their sins.

    What rule hasn’t he broken in the Presidency? Since day one, it seems to have been Prime Minister, despot, tyrant, or king–but never a presidency…

    My favorite moment was none of these. The funniest moment on the Glenn Beck Program (radio) was when they were talking about Jeff Flake and Martin Heinrich doing a reality show together. The jokes were flyin’ fast and furious–”har-har quips”, “adopting a black kid”, and the Casey Kasem impressions by all three hosts–I was howling. I was laughing so hard, my wife started complaining. Best moment of 2014, hands down.

    I just showed the movie Joyeux Noel to my students 2 weeks ago. They loved it!! Such a great story. It is hard to believe we will be acknowledging the centennial of this event in just a few weeks. I told my kids that this would be talked about–and here it is.

    As I was reading this, I had to admit I gulped pretty big when I found out who the bishop was. Mark Paredes and I have been friends for about 12 years now. I’ve had him in my home and went to church with Mark many times, long before he became a bishop. Secretly I and others in my congregation have said the same thing about Harry Reid. I don’t know how he sleeps at night. But at the same time, I’m not Harry Reid’s ecclesiastical leader, nor am I a spokesperson for the entire Church. Harry Reid is just who he is. I don’t get him, I really don’t. Almost all Mormons don’t understand Reid. We almost all have the same sentiments; Mark is just bolder than I am and has a forum to speak and write about it. All I know is that Reid will have to stand before the Savior one day (as we all will) and explain himself. Hopefully Reid retires–he’s certainly done enough.

    Dude, she’s a conservative. I know her. I went to Church with her. I know her husband Jason. She’s a conservative and a true patriot.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say–he’s only 1 chromosome short of Kevin Hart… :)
