    It’s a damned city park dedicated to veterans! It’s not a cemetery. I’m a veteran, and I use the park near me for running the dog, playing Frisbee golf, and we’ve had some pretty raucous parties there from time to time that involved wayyyy too much alcohol.

    So what does this gatekeeper of all things military think should occur at “HIS” park? Is it supposed to be like a library or a meditation center? Where we sit quietly contemplating the sacrifice of our veterans? Give me a break!

    If I had a park named in my honor I would want it to be fun.

    As much as I dislike the idiots running around playing Pokemon Go, I am on their side in this.

    I think the thing that Beck and many forget, is that a political race is always a comparison. You can point out the flaws in each candidate and compare them to your own value system regardless of what it is. It is likely that most of us find both candidates wanting, but that’s not the issue.

    The issue is only which of those two (Hillary or Trump) will you choose, or will you abdicate by not voting or writing someone else in. You cannot protest by writing someone in, or not voting. That’s not a protest. In the 2 party system we live under, it just makes you and your conscious irrelevant.

    It’s not a dilemma at all. I would damn sure rather be a German civilian under Hitler than a Chinese civilian under Mao.

    Trump has qualities that lend himself to Tyranny, and it may come to that. Hillary on the other hand, it’s a certainty without exception.

    So if I interpret this right. The conclusion of the Blaze research staff is that gun control such as implemented in Australia is a good thing?

    Could someone explain to me how the AR-15 recoil bruised his shoulder? It’s not much more recoil than a 22 rifle. The recoil spring in the stock absorbs almost all of the recoil. The guy is a liar.

    Is an absolute idiotic over-reaction to every issue the new protocol in today’s military?

  • [17] June 6, 2016 at 3:26pm

    @Racer5

    Most woman are dq’d by a percentage so high that it makes changing policy utterly ludicrous and insane.

    It doesn’t matter if men can or cannot control themselves. We’re talking 18-23 year old alpha males. Everything is a competition and ego. It simply is, and that isn’t going to change because some policy maker high above wants to legislate it out of existence.

    Sorry, but that dog just won’t hunt.

  • [21] June 6, 2016 at 2:32pm

    Yeah? Unfortunately pushing 225 isn’t the job. Nor is being able to shoot a perfect score at a shooting competition which some women can do quite well.

    The job is humping a 100 pound ruck, armor, Kevlar, and weapon, all damned day. Every day. The job is killing people, sometimes kids, because Haji just loves sending their wide-eyed teen sons out to do their job.

    Some women can do it, sure. Maybe 1/1000th of 1 percent, and of those an even smaller percentage would actually want to do it.

    But do we turn the entire combat arms profession on it’s head to fit those few?

    @themediaistheenemy

    Agreed.

    When you make a mistake in re-organizing your corporation, you lose some revenue, perhaps reduce efficiency. When you make a mistake in re-organizing your military. You kill people. Good people.

  • [93] June 6, 2016 at 1:54pm

    We don’t need to go into politics, accusations of misogyny, or ethics to make a rational decision regarding this, when simple biology will do.

    They can’t handle the weight. They just can’t. Weapon, Armor, Kevlar, Vest, and a ruck conceived in the 7th plane of Hell, filled with a 100 pounds of food, water, a million extra batteries, and ammo, ammo, ammo. Then all this goes on your sad crying body, and you walk in an ankle turning ditch in 100+ degree heat all damned day, every damn day. Up mountains, down mountains, take knee, get up, get down, and that’s when things don’t go all to hell. When it does, you’re sprinting.

    Can that 110 pound beauty queen hump a ruck all day? Not happening. Can she chuck my fat 220 pound wounded and screaming ass on her shoulders and run me a 100 yards through blistering enemy fire and carry me to safety?

    Can she deal with the alpha male door kickin’ locker room BS 24-7 when half her platoon is trying to get in her pants and the other half is trying to protect from those guys (but really, just want to be her hero and get in her pants too?)

    What rational woman would want that?

    Ever heard a woman scream? I mean really scream when it’s real, and she’s hurt? I have, and it’s blood curdling. Primal instincts kick in so hard that you lose all reason. You just want to help her and make it stop.

    We don’t change the entire military order for the tiny few Amazons that “might” be able to do this job. You just don’t.

    Translation: I really, really, like Sanders since he agrees on all my positions, but I can’t outright support him because the Clinton’s have long, long memories, and if she wins…well….

    As a Cruz supporter I have to agree with your assessment. It’s a last ditch effort to switch the conversation away from Trump. Carly isn’t a bad VP choice. He’ll pick up many of the Carly supporters and it’ll bring him an edge with women.

    But honestly, I believe it’s too little and wayyyyyy to late to make a difference.

    It was a good speech, because it was fundamental. Something that gets lost in the nebulous details of foreign policy much too often. I expect the leader of every country to put THEIR country first. Every-time!’
    When that is understood and accepted then it makes it easy to deal in the mishmash of geopolitics because everyone knows where they stand.

    As a Cruz supporter who unlike Glenn will vote for Trump in a hot second if he is the nominee. I found the speech refreshing.

    *sigh*

    This is the problem when you lose objectivity and go “all in” for a candidate. It matters not who the candidate is.
    He becomes the savior of the nation, the only one who can finally set things right. The way things are supposed to be.

    And it is at that moment that the desire to see that “great” man ascend to the throne becomes a singular focus. He becomes something more than a man. He becomes something necessary, and anyone that doesn’t see your “truth” must be a stupid, or a villain.

    It is also at that moment that you lose your own honor and become a casualty in the culture war.

    Enough of this prattling nonsense Glenn.

    You are making judgments and condemnations in places you have no right to do so. Nor the ability, or justification..

    No man does.

    Cultural saber-rattling is beneath you, and does nothing but lower you to the level of those you struggle against. It’s the battlefield of the Godless, and they have the high ground in that desolate place.

    At best you’ll end up as nothing but a “clanging brass” if you persist in this. At worst you’ll be just another casualty in the culture war….and not a martyr of a righteous cause.

    Standing for something,and being principled, does not mean using the Accusers tactics, and becoming just like him.

    The good Shepard does not destroy his own flock.

    Be patient Glenn, or lose it all in meaningless fury and clamor.

    Endorsements from the establishment do not help Cruz, who is running as anti-establishment.

    Whatever small gains he might get from establishment voters and their panacea of legitimacy is not worth the losses from the base. This will also be used quite effectively by Trump who will hammer Ted as nothing more than an establishment politician and more of the same.

    I think it would be wise for Ted to not embrace these endorsements.

  • [34] March 22, 2016 at 9:39am

    Based on the responses there seems to be no middle-ground with most folks here on the Blaze. I don’t know if this is being driven by Glenn, or it’s just personal bias, but the death of reason isn’t something to be celebrated.

    If that’s the price one must pay to support a candidate today, then it’s too damned high! Despite the rhetoric, Trump isn’t Hitler, or the Antichrist, and neither is Cruz. You can be “all in” for a candidate without sacrificing logic, and reducing your candidate’s opponent to evil incarnate.

    Both men have admirable and negative qualities.

    Regardless of Trump’s tactics, I think powerful media figures getting a little of the fire that they routinely lay down is a good thing.

    It’s far from accountability, but a little pain here and there to remind these talking heads that their are consequences for their pronouncements and opinions is kinda nice.

    Free Speech should work both ways, not just to the guy or gal with the biggest microphone.

    Trump will destroy the current Republican Party, root and branch. He will do it like a Bull Dozer through saplings.

    Cruz will destroy the current Republican Party, albeit more slowly, and with much more due consideration.

    I will vote for either man because of that one fact. I realized long ago that you can’t blame a liberal for being a liberal, that’s just who they are. It’s like being mad at a dog for being a dog.

    But the leaders of the Republican party, the power brokers, the money handlers, those pathetic elites who try to sell themselves as conservative,,when they are anything but…that’s the real enemy.

    The Republican party needs to be destroyed from the ground up and remade into something better, until that happens nothing will change except the slow and continual slide into Socialism.

    For that reason alone I will support Cruz and or Trump.

    If Cruz were smart he would ask Graham not to do this. Right now both Cruz and Trump are taking anti-establishment positions, in fact it is central to both of their campaigns. A Graham endorsement will do damage to Cruz, and can be used as ammunition by Trump.
