I think they miss one of the truly subtle digs at these very idiots from the movie. The horror and disbelief in Chris’s comments to Taya when he is shocked and amazed that life goes on as we know it stateside while he is witnessing the atrocities of war. I think Cooper captured it beautifully in the scene where he is driving with Taya and his expression and tone are just total amazement that there is a war going on and people aren’t the slight bit interested in what’s happening to our service members.

“My daughter was born here, why do you want to separate our family?” WTF you separated your family you dumb twit…then you ignored our laws, and then others say they have been here for 19 – 30 years (ignoring our laws) with a high probability of stealing someones identity to collect a paycheck etc.. what a bunch of a-wholes. I only feel a shred of empathy for the kids that were raised here and never told their true status.
Also note: there is NO Supreme Court decision that makes US citizens of children born to parents who are in America ILLEGALLY.
In a FOOTNOTE (footnote 10) in Plyer v. Doe (1982) the Supreme Court made that statement BUT that issue was not presented to the Court in that case. Thus, the footnote is nothing but "orbiter dicta" and is not entitled to be considered as controlling precedent.
It is real simple you take your daughter with you. No one is separating your family you are. How long are we going to allow illegal aliens to publicly give the Government the finger. Again the answer is so easy. Arrest and deport that will stop all this BS. We do not need to deport 11+million. They will go home as soon as you stop the bennies. No more free anything. If you take the ambulance to the hospital for a headache and are here illegally the next stop is a ticket home to where ever you come from. When you apply for a licence and it comes up you are illegally here the next drive is to the border. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR IMMIGRATION STATUS! Not my Government or anything we have done. We as a government have been lax in enforcing the law. That does not mean we have to allow everyone who illegally crosses our border to stay. Every illegal alien knows his status and why he came here. Time to tell the truth and do something about it. Stop the foolish BS that we can not deport 11 million people who are breaking our laws, we better get a spine and start enforcing our immigration laws before like Rome we no longer exist as the Nation we once were.
My favorite was “My children were born in this country! We follow the rules! We have our rights too!” She obviously doesn't understand irony because she was't following the rules if she was here illegally :)
Solution - Congress clarifies the law and the intent of the Amendment that libs have relied upon to bring them here en-mass disallowing citizenship being extended to those who enter into the country illegally their anchor babies. Period.
You choose to come here illegally, we deny your child citizenship, deny you entry without going to the back of the line, and we ship you back to the country from which your departed.

If she really wanted to compete fairly then she would be suing for an appeal on the decision to let her compete..not for a ducking 2.5 million dollar payday. She loves the sport so much she wants to destroy the competition by bankrupting it. Other than that let her compete..who really watches crossfit competitions anyways? Seriously!?!?

What is it with people that comment without basic reading and comprehension? Fire the principle (sic)? Why would you fire the principal for doing the right thing and bringing this to the authorities as well as sticking up for his son?
As for the jokes being tossed around in other comments, WTF is wrong with you people that you can draw humor from a specific story about a little boy being raped?

That reminds me of the time I refused to sign the form that states you will pay for everything if insurance doesn’t cover it. The clerk was dumbfounded and didn’t know what to do. I simply explained that I had someone at the doctors office confirm and I had also confirmed that my visit was covered prior to service and that was enough for me. She had to get an oK from the lady I had talked to on the phone…they no longer ask me to sign the form.

Most of the high school, or U-19 teams are coached and mentored by a local adult division team. They should turn the raffle over to them to get the morons off their backs. Besides the older ruggers can sell the tickets at the drink ups after they play their own matches. I imagine the would collect a lot of cash for the girls.

The sad thing about this painting is the horrible inaccuracy. I looked at the money that the NRA shells out and it really isn’t that much that actually reaches out directly to politicians by means of political donations. However if you want to do the research, and it isn’t that hard, look at how much the pharmaceutical companies bankroll politicians. (search Pfizer PAC) It is insane how much they spend. This, in my honest opinion, is why the NRA is taking the heat and there has been literally no mention of the drugs the last four or five killers were on in the news..or why SSRI drugs aren’t even on the radar of the media and politicians despite the fact they are the most common thread between mass murders dating back to columbine. Do the research and spread the news..lets address a much bigger problem and actually have an effect on mass killings rather than the same old pat themselves on the back crap legislation.

I remember being a kid and listening to the “old timers” gripe about Carter trying to “figure out a way to put a meter on our face to tax the air we breathe”..if they were around today they wouldn’t be far off. After generating the most revenue this government has ever seen, they just want more and more. I notice all of the movies hitting the big screen lately mostly have apocalyptic themes…I fear life may imitate art sooner rather than later if we don’t curb the government and get control of our country again. Out of control spending and overtaxing is going to lead to our demise and the politcal climate gets worse daily because they throw diversions at us and pundits cause us to neglect civil discourse for name calling and hatred. All the while the politicians continue to pick our pocket , work secret deals, serve special interest at their personal benefit, all whiile increasing their net worth each day in office on top of a bloated salary with incredulous expense benefits. They ignore the things that are no longer necessary from the past laws like summer recess, horse and buggy days it was necessary. Then as they ignore these outdated practices they wag their collective fingers at us and tell us in so many words that we need to rethink and redefine the bill of rights. Sorry for the rant..I couldnt even get it all out..I have been through with either party for a while now and my list of pol’s that offer a slight ray of hope dwindles with each days passing

What irks me is the fact that he gave canned speeches, using the same monotone sentiment for the Sandy Hook incident and then the Maarathon bombing..false, fake concern. No real raction to those killed in Benghazi and now the first time we actually see som efire in his belly is when he doesn’t get his own way with gun control. He gets all petulant and childish tantrum like. I tried so hard to not be the atypicl anti obama mindless birther,troll that floods the commenets sections of news stories. But I dare say he just disgusts me completely. Quick to say the police acted stupidly or quick to talk about Trayvon looking liek a son he would have had but unwilling to talk about aan ongoing case when you have a doctor that murders babies and a woman,

ahh, again mislead by poor reporting. He was a U Mass student..my bad. Well, really its the media’s bad.

You’re right they shut the city down…and managed to kill and capture the D’bags in under a week. Perhaps they should have taken lead from California and set the manhunt in the same fashion as the hunt for Christopher Dorner, they could’ve mistakenly shot way more people in Boston considering there were way more people out hunting with guns. The plan and execution was solid and the law enforcement worked together like true professionals..local, state, federal. Not one loss of civilian life due to erroneous or trigger happy police shooting over a hundred rounds at things such as a truck, of a different make, color and year with two females as opposed to a single male inside.
Also how was he a 19 yr old med student? Pre-med maybe, and MIT is an engineering school so maybe medical technology student? I don’t get that med student stuff

So let me get this straight, you are complaining because you have nothing to complain about?
April 19, 2013 at 7:58am
go back into the Connecticut record of those drills, they held that same drill at least four times prior to the Sandy Hook shooting. Realistically, people whose job it is to respond to emergencies should always be taking advantage of situations most like ones they would encounter by conducting drills. It is also cheaper than having to waste resources hiring crowds to play different roles so that they could conduct drills. Why not have them in the public so that the realism is much closer to what they would encounter when called upon. It is first responders job to be ready, which requires lots of practice.

Credit has to go out to Rene Rancourt for getting them going. That man is an icon and living legend with the Big Bad B’s. What a class act all the way. Triple fist pump for that one!! I always love how they zoom in on his hand, sporting the ring, when he pumps it to the crowd to get them going.

How about we give the right people time to conduct an investigation. Stop letting the damn pundits stir up divisive behavior. The anonymity of the internet is already to blame for commenters being “at each others throats” over a common enemy but refusing to come together to combat it. It’s old, and abhorrent to anonymously type threats and name calling towards each other. Conspiracy theories will happen, its sort of healthy to question things, if you start wearing the tin foil hat then that may be cause for concern, but wondering and questioning why certain things were in place or happened isn’t cause to bash and verbally disembowl. We lost our national identity and 9/11 started to stitch it back together now it seems as if another tragedy is going to have the opposite efffect this time with how quickly people are already fighting..left wing blah blah blah..right wing blah blah blah..Eff it, lets the cut the wings off this bird and get grounded.
Totally agree makes me sick that people are blaming this on "political persuasions" already.
Great point! Needs to be taken one step further: The media has now reported the blasts. If you haven't seen it, it's on the websites. STOP replaying it over and over. That's what the person or people responsible wanted. It's rather obvious by their timing and chosen event. Quit giving them the satisfaction they desire and start reporting on the heroes and people who made it against the odds.

…instead they have opted for switching the NRA sponsorship to Monsanto, to fall in line with one our politicians greatest sponsors. Or perhaps in light of the shootings the new sponsor will be Eli Lilly & Company (Prozac), or Abbot Laboratories (Luvox), or Pfizer (Zoloft).
April 13, 2013 at 10:42am
How deep do the pharmaceutical companies hold the politicians pockets? The gun issue is definitely worth discussing rationally, but instead they shop these parents around and never broach the most distressing common factor between all of these shootings/mass murders. RSSI’s (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are the most common thread, at least proven up until the past four mass shootings due to the fact the media has refused to release that information. They have no problem discussing that gun related paraphernalia in Lanza’s home but what about the medications he was on. The politicians are going to leave these grieving parents behind once they are done with them…the parent should be lobbying to find the link between the drugs and shootings as well.
Check out the website below, it has all the research done for you up to about October of 2011..it’s an eye opener really. http://ssristories.com/
Even better - Look for " Generation Rx, " the Film - if it can be found anymore !
you are so right =big pharma does not care they just want money i think nra should come up with an add about drugs that kill & make the mentally unstable even teens have killed themselves because of these drugs- someone even has said other countries have found cures for cancer but do you see with all the money is not for cures but for more expensive drugs which should be cheap because of donations
There is a film that addresses that - " Burzynski . " - hurry, may be removed as well.
