His philosophy is similar to an axiom I’ve lived by for a long time: Never ask someone that works for you to do something you wouldn’t do yourself. Make sure they know that you are willing to do the very thing you are asking them to do.

Yeah, I’d say the progressives will hate it because a human being stepped in and it didn’t take the government to help this kid get a job.

@socialist you are incorrect as is that guy in the White House. He presumes to lecture Christians as if we have committed atrocities just like ISIS. And we haven’t. Anyone who thinks they are supposed to commit these atrocities in the name of Christ DOES NOT KNOW CHRIST. Period. Again, go back to what Christ and Muhammad taught.
 February 10, 2015 at 1:17pm
You didn’t ask that the first time. No, it’s not OK to commit atrocities in the name of Christianity, or in the name of Christ. Christ never taught to do that.
 February 10, 2015 at 12:44pm
Christians follow Christ and Muslims (Muhammadans) follow Muhammad. Compare and contrast the statements of Christ and Muhammad and you’ll see that the premise of your question is false.
You are not answering my question...
...is it acceptable to commit terrible acts in the name of Christianity?
You didn't ask that the first time. No, it's not OK to commit atrocities in the name of Christianity, or in the name of Christ. Christ never taught to do that.
Actually, that is what I asked the first time...
And good...then you are on the same page with the President on this one....

My goodness...he never said that you committed hideous acts in the name of your religion...he said that there have been peope who have committed terrible acts in the name of Christ and Christianity.
Do you disagree with that statement?

Yes. At 2:48 in the video, she says he swung the club at her at 11th and Pike, 1 block away from this stop.

At 2:48 in the video she says “It’s about you swinging the golf club at me at 11th and Pike.” I looked up Google Street view and this arrest took place at 12th and Pike. So she’s not claiming he swung the golf club at her during this stop. It also explains why she immediately pulled over when she saw him on the corner and the first thing she demands is that he drop the club.
The video starts with her turning south onto 12th from Pine, so we don’t see what happened at 11th and Pike.
The difference between 11th and 12th is a block. The video clearly shows the officer traveling much more than a block and even turning a corner. Are you saying the man teleported to a new location after swinging the golf club at the female officer and she had to travel several blocks to catch up with him?
Let's assume your right purely for the sake of argument. Does the perceived threat of a 69 year old man swinging a golf club from a block away warrant this reaction? Can you say God Complex?
Is it possible the man was swatting some litter out of the way, or maybe a fly or bug of some sort? Waving at another pedestrian? Hailing a cab? Indefensible.

If you listen closely, she says that he swung the club at her at 11th and Pike, 1 block away from where this arrest occurred. It seems she saw him at 11th and Pike, then circled the block and stopped him at the next intersection, 12th and Pike.
The correct answer is actually -13. You have to follow PEMDAS and resolve the addition first:
1 – 2 + 3 – 4 + 5 = 1 – 5 – 9 = -13

I haven’t seen the right answer yet, so here it is. You have to resolve the operations in a specific order, known as PEMDAS. You have to resolve Parenthesis, Exponents, then Multiplication, then Division, Addition and Subtraction. So we go through the list and resolve the Addition first:
1 – 2 + 3 – 4 + 5 = 1 – 5 – 9
I replied above, however, I figure it best to do it here as well.
Addition and subtraction (using PEMDAS) is solved left to right. Order or operations are
Multiplication & Division (solved left to right)
Addition & Subtraction (solved left to right)
The correct answer is 3.
Bzzzzt. Incorrect. Order of operations requires that BOTH addition and subtraction be done in order from left to right.
1-2=-1+3=2-4=-2+5=3 The answer is 3
You are correct. I forgot about the grouping. I stand corrected.
Congratulations, here's your sign.
Wow, I'm in the presence of genius. NOT!

Saying you’re a conservative + Acting against conservative principles = Not a conservative
The term 'Grubered' is going to be used a lot on The Blaze.

Why would people in Las Vegas or San Francisco be searching online for porn? It’s rampant in the streets! I would expect living in a more “conservative” state that those looking for porn would be more likely to do it via online searches rather than running down to the closest smut shop to buy something. How is this a revelation?

This is why we need less armed-to-the-teeth LEO and more armed average good guy citizens.

I feel for that little girl, especially. Killing someone can have a profound effect on an adult, I think it’ll be much worse for this child.
In a way I am glad we got to see this. I personally observed several issues that will help me be more careful.
1. Kids that small are not going to be able to control a fully auto anything without considerable training. If I were to even consider training a child this smal to handle such a weapon, I’m thinking using blanks and having devices in place to keep the gun from walking would be prudent.
2. When the instructor was making the switch to full auto, the girl’s finger must’ve still been on the trigger. I don’t think the instructor was ready for her to go ahead and pull the trigger, I think he was still trying to give her instructions. At the very least, I’d want someone new to fully auto to have their finger well clear of the trigger while changing the fire selector, then taking a very long time to get set up to brace for the gun’s recoil. I’d also complete my instructions before making the switch.
3. Several quick, successive pulls of the trigger while in semi-auto would give an idea where the gun will move and would allow for proper bracing against that movement. So he had her fire one shot. Then it should have been two, one right after the other, then three.
1. Never point a weapon at something unless you want to destroy it.
2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot.
3. A gun is always loaded.
She was unknowingly following rule 1, but he was not enforcing rule 2. Her finger should've been completely off the trigger between each portion. He should've trained her on proper handling before loading the weapon. Unfortunately, this is not a lesson he can learn from. It cost him his life.
I don't even let my own kids handle unloaded guns without enforcing the "finger off the trigger" rule. The rule has to be drummed into you until you're doing it out of habit.

Exactly what I was thinking. I do sincerely hope that God helps him work on his issues and restores him as a follower of Christ, but never to be in a position of leadership again.

“Gays” are asking for – and getting – special privileges to “marry” the same sex. They have the same rights everyone else does, and they have the same privilege to marry a member of the opposite sex just like the rest of us. This has never been about righting wrongs and making sure everyone’s rights are applied. This has always been about forcing acceptance of a deviant lifestyle. “Gays” need help and they aren’t getting it.
