    The warmth is a result of the frequency range not being cut off, creating sounds that are more lush and full. When music is converted from analog to digital, the top and low end of each frequency is lost (think of analog as a full sine wave, so with digital the peaks and valleys are flattened instead of curved – which creates a kind of stair-step pattern.) And then you have audio compression which commits still further aural rape upon the music. But I’m guilty of that too, mp3-320 works fine for me with most music.

    Dear Mainstream Press (and Blaze contributors who mimic them,)

    Please stop using “that” as a substitute for “who” and “whom” (see the article headline.) Language can be used to dehumanize people – and you’re contributing to that activity. Bravo, ze fuhrer would be proud.

    You’re right! In fact, in a sci-fi book I wrote I referred to them as “newsreaders” because that’s exactly what they’ve devolved into.

    Are these militant atheists any different from the Bamiyan-Buddha-destroying Taliban? Those statues weren’t on private land either (not that that would stop the Taliban, just as it someday won’t stop the atheists.)

    You know they would tear down the cross, Bible, and Ten Commandments wherever visible if they could.

    Start using the liberals’ language against them and call these people what they are: zealots, bigots, religiphobes, deiphobes, closed-minded, hate-mongers, etc. Accuse them of wanting a war on religion and people who believe in God, claim they want to target people of faith just like the NAZIs went after Jews.

    Do NOT let them control the debate!

    When you hear someone try to twist this into a gun-control argument, just throw the words of this kid back in their face: “… but after watching Youtube videos of previous Deltopia parties, I saw that there were way too many cops walking around on such an event. It would be impossible to kill enough of my enemies before being dispatched….”

    Further proof that guns in the right hands can and do deter violent behavior.

    Ben Carson is going to be doing a short book signing tour through the first week of June. Three spots in Texas!

    Granted, he may be doing signings at other locations – these were just easy to find. Get out there and support him if you can!

    Rush once commented, “Why do you think a man with that much money to lose would be willing to see half of it taken away? Because it’s worth it!”

    Still makes me laugh…

    Rush needed to be a bit more patient… Audion is set to begin limited clinical trials within the next three years. http://www.boston.com/news/science/blogs/science-in-mind/2014/02/20/scientists-regenerate-the-ear-hair-cells-treat-hearing-loss-mice/9mYM9OkHugOWuP7UZ47YJN/blog.html

    Try watching the entire video and tell me it’s not a satire on the empty and temporary happiness brought on by drugs and alcohol.

    BRING BACK KINGS!!!!!

    Sorry, just had to let that out. If you haven’t seen the re-imagined story of King David, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

    Heroes’ season one was great, but after that it turned into a soap opera.

    @OpAck Journeyman was great too! In fact, its cancellation and Kings’ is what made me stop watching network television. Now I just watch DVDs (or interweb) – if a company won’t stand behind their product, why should a consumer invest their time in it?

    Hi Teammommy,

    Use Firefox as your browser and download the (free) Ghostery plugin – I use this setup and it blocks almost 100% of ads and pop-ups. Every now and then I’ll visit the Blaze on a different machine running Chrome or IE and it’s just shocking how much crap they blast people with here. I don’t know about you, but it often keeps me from recommending articles to others because I know how they’ll perceive the site.

    Google “free tv video online.me” and you can watch GoT online for free. I suggest using Firefox with the Ghostery add-on installed to block most of the cookies. Also, there tend to be a bunch of popups – including one that asks you to register – but you can close them all and still watch the shows. Can’t beat it!

    This is a terrific story (and the artwork is fantastic,) marred only by Billy’s inability to use proper punctuation.

    1. “But the businessman contends that his family is enjoying the ministry and that, it’s an important work.” The comma is unnecessary.

    2. ” In fact, Grant said it’s a church issue, as almost half of those women who are having abortions identify as Catholic or Christian.” The second comma is improper as it creates an false appositive; that is, the sentence does not make sense without the aside (and if it had been written correctly, it would.)

    The Blaze really should have editors.

    Blaze watchers might be interested to know the artist is fairly conservative. The upside down American flag is appropriate (and so’s the broken seal, let’s be honest)… I just wish the resolution was higher so I could see if Dorman painted the rifle with its safety on. :)

    As much as I’d prefer Dorman use his talents to paint a worthwhile subject, his style is just amazing and he always manages to add a vibrancy that grabs the viewer (check out his Star Wars, Predator, and Batman work.)

    @Humbleman & Maggiesway

    Step 1. Google “whitehouse.gov birth certificate long form” – this brings up the official birth certificate posted on the WH website.

    Step 2. Download the pdf and open in Adobe Illustrator.

    Step 3. Whoever made the file forgot to embed the layers… so start turning off the layers/masks and you’ll see everything from dates to signatures disappearing.

    Step 4. Come back and admit Rot_Soldier was right.

    @Jeffersonspen

    That’s not a fuel tank on the ground, it’s a transmission pan. One of my coworkers ran into/over a median just like the car in the picture and it ripped her transmission pan clean off. Do an image search on Google and you’ll find plenty of pictures showing them all to be about the same size and shape.

    @Moderation

    He loves everyone, but favors those who love Him back. I’m sorry if you don’t like that arrangement, but perhaps you’d be more comfortable if no one had free will and everyone was forced by God to live according to His rules? You cant have it both ways.

    With regard to Him setting up an imperfect system, it’s the result of Him both allowing humans to have fee will and giving Satan free reign on earth. Basically Satan rebelled because, among other things, he thought he could do a better job than God – so God’s response was, in effect, “Okay, prove it.” The Bible even states the angels are watching like a “court” to witness the outcome. So, in the end, God is playing a much larger game for much higher stakes than your self-centered silliness could apparently appreciate.

    @TheOther

    Your link cited all of three verses – not much to build a credible case for your assumptions. Allow me to destroy one:

    “In Colossians 1:16 we find the preposition en (in, by means of). This preposition governs auto (him, in the dative case). Most of the 74 occurrences in the NT of “en auto” in the dative case are locative, that is, they refer to something or someone being in some place. Only one of the examples points to a direct agent (1 Corinth. 6:2). In the last part of verse 16 we find the preposition dia, which governs autou in the genitive case. This is the typical marking of an INTERMEDIATE agent, so this must be the proper way to view Jesus.” (emphasis mine.)

    Feel free to consult an actual scholar to dispute me.

    @Moderation

    Jesus said the path of righteousness was narrow and few would find it. In the OT, God commanded Gideon to reduce the numbers in his army based on how they drank water from a river.

    While God may wish to see as many people as possible join Him, He has no problem accepting only a fraction into His kingdom. And those who are studious and truly desirous to know Him will be able to learn the truth. It will not be easy but then, if you accept the notion that He created the universe (as believers do,) He has the right to be as picky as He wants to be.
