They don’t know that most restaurants offer a choice of vegan or carnivore food at the same table? They really have developed B-vitamin deficiencies.

Y’know, having lots of different keys, cards, and cash in my pockets feels like a Grown-Up Thing to me in *any* case.
Even if tracking weren’t a solid guarantee that dissidents would be tracked down.
Even if I trusted any form of non-cash payment that’s already in use–many people have lost many dollars just with checks.
Even if any electronic gadget ever worked for more than a year or two.
Even if evildoers couldn’t be depended on to carve the identity chips out of people’s flesh.
Even if I didn’t seriously believe that anyone who seriously proposes an idea like this one needs to spend the rest of his life in a padded cell!

According to the dictionary definition, anyone qualified to speak in public is by now a “feminist.” He needed to clarify his terms.

“Feminist” means anyone who believes women are at least equally as valuable as men. Therefore it now includes all rational people and needs modifiers to be useful as a political label.
“Left-wing feminist” describes those who fell into what Laura Ingraham called “The Hillary Trap,” still a good book. The discussion here would be improved if all participants had read it.

Well, it means something dirty…I think it’s about self-control. A person who has the discipline the U.S. President needs can switch from bull-session-mode to presidential-mode language without difficulty.

You might try a bit of research. There are different schools of thought in Islam, just as there are in Judaism and Christianity.
If you've been doing some research, can you tell me which "schools of thought" don't apply the doctrine of abrogation and which openly denounce dhimmitude? Those would be the only ones not subscribing to an evil theology, and I can't find any . . . so please, do some research and let us know.
The Radical Athiests will be all over them. Now, if we were in the Middle East, they wouldn’t live to report on what happened.
Ya…the frenzie......dly city

Priscilla -- I wouldn't trust their report. Fundamentalist Christians are all liars. They always lie to achieve their political goals. Fundamentalist Christianity is not a religion -- it is a political ideology.

If she’s angry at terrorists, which she has every right to be, let her take the police and/or military training and go after them. Interrupting people’s prayers is tacky. And cowardly.
Sure, Secret Service ALWAYS WAIT IN A LONG LINE OF IDIOTS! Let me guess, you went to a LIBERAL COLLEGE!

I call foul. People who accept hypnotic suggestions might idolize the hypnotist or participate in “jokes” (“When my given name is pronounced, you will immediately want to make passionate love to me”), but suicide? Hardly a suggestion an educator would be likely to make. Before they demonize the principal these parents should at least be asked whether their children had also taken any kind of “medication.”
We don’t know what he did during the hypnosis. I would bet my money that he pleaded guilty to what was found out because if they did further investigating they would find a pedophile behind the hypnostism. I know I shouldn’t judge, I just have been too close too these types of situations not to highly suspect that sexual abuse and suicide commands to encourage forgetting of the event were going on in this case. What else would be his motive? He very well could have drugs involved as well. Adults with jobs working with children are suspect in and of itself. Where else would a pedophile want to work? But people don’t see it so they won’t suspect.

Why are so many–Republicans? ???–wasting a good opportunity, just to say something nasty? The word for the young Hillary Rodham who talked a good line about poor people, but never really thought of them in the same context with anybody she, like, knew, was RICHIE. And the word for Candidate Clinton, which I’d expect Republicans to say early and often, is BRAIN-DAMAGED.

Why not? He’s Jewish after all. The news is that a celebrity would be so anti-Israel.
What I want to know is what’s in the water out there (when there is any water) that’s making these people fight so madly over “rights” to a desert. Especially when they trace their descent to a common ancestor who’s revered as a prophet and patriarch for saying “Rehoboth,” room for all of them. Why not just work out a deal, share the historic attractions, and use the tourist revenue to buy more and nicer land somewhere else?

It’s called woman-hating: evicting law-abiding middle-aged women to make room for young men who, if they were seeking asylum, would be with their families.

Speaking strictly as an occasional viewer…I’d rather see/hear athletes after they’ve drunk some water, washed their faces, and thought about what to say, than see the cameras shoved in their faces the minute they get off the field. Kyle Petty wasn’t much of an athlete, but after dropping out of a race in 1994 he really “said” it all. (Right, for young readers, I mean the famous spew-on-the-camera moment.) Reporters can think of better questions while athletes are getting themselves together. It’s such a win/win.

That said…it’s not only possible that Muslim terrorists will try to exploit this particular child’s talent, it’s *likely*. Especially if he leaves the U.S. feeling hated and persecuted here. So there are valid reasons why we should all be very very nice to young Ahmed. Muslim children cannot all be as public-spirited as Malala Yousafzai.

So, he’s a bright, mischievous, rebellious little kid whose parents happen to be Muslims. How bad is that? Personally I don’t see bias in people’s displays of support for young Ahmed because I’ve displayed support for bright, mischievous, rebellious little kids who are Christian, Jewish, White, Black, even female. I just generally like smarty-pants kids better than the couch-potato type.

What indication do you have that he's bright?
You like the "smarty pants" kids who take apart a clock, put it in a case, and intentionally let it be "discovered" so it will be thought to be a bomb?
You're rather odd.

Donald Trump is hardly in a position to criticize anyone else’s face, voice, manners, accent, hair, etc. He of all people should keep it parliamentary. Hillary’s politics would give everyone plenty to criticize even if she hadn’t uttered a few choice lines like (to Bill at a party) “Those people aren’t rich; they’re useless.” Then she’s *twice* cited brain damage as an excuse for not testifying. Beating her in a straight two-party election would be a cakewalk if Bill hadn’t sent out Trump to be a spoiler, which job includes picking on things poor li’l Hillsie can’t help (shrill? How bad *was* her famous bout with flu?) and making people feel sympathetic toward her.
September 27, 2015 at 3:30pm
Are we talking about the same Hillary? Has her voice changed lately?
