I am divided about this as well Monk. But my point of view, and yours, is a culmination of empirical facts and our own reasoning. Glenn has as much said that God is leading him to do this, and if that’s the case, then that’s where he needs to be, no matter how stupid or dangerous it sounds.
Everyone gets the Lion’s Den, at least once in their lives.
I agree, Ranger. As a devout Christian who has herself been touched by the hand of the LORD and who has been spoken to directly, I am 100% with Glenn on this even if I'm scared to death for his safety. John Wayne once said "All battles are fought by scared men who'd rather be someplace else," and he's absolutely right, but where would this world be if those scared men HAD been someplace else? What if they'd never stormed the beaches of Normandy? What if they'd never dropped out of planes into all of Nazi-occupied Europe? We'd all be either dead, never born, or living under Nazi rule and speaking German right now. If the LORD is calling Glenn, then he must go and we must pray for him.
Not me. Get Glen the hell out of the USA and tell him to stop with his BS agenda. You are a Ranger and you do not see through his BS? I do. He is an entertainer who changes stripe more than his underwear. Obama's plan for ISSis is a great plan if the right would get behind the plan ISSIS will be reduced to rags. However, Gleen Rush.et al pretend they do not get it. Weak weak weak. We can fight 10 million radical but not one billion Muslims. Divide and conquer. Come on Ranger! it is that simple.

I assume by Televangelist you mean “scam artist using religion.”
When it comes to plea’s for help, the devil is in the details and the details tell me that Glenn is a principled man looking to take a stand on issues that should be beyond debate.
The fact that they are, tells us more about the state of this nation that any poll ever could.
Thanks Man. My Old Man (gone Now) jumped out of perfectly functional planes to float down (with .30cal on tether) just to dodge bullets from Germans on the ground.
Glenn is a Man of Principle and Faith; agreed.
Glenn is an entertainer who uses religion and fear as the glue that holds his little empire together.

Hillary is done. Even the liberal Left can’t stand her anymore. I just hope she damages the rest of the Democratic field (whoever they end up being), on her way out.
 June 4, 2015 at 5:55pm
Aww hell, even if she ends up being a no-good scam artist, it takes nothing away from that man’s honor. It was well done.

Some people have a light-sucking black hole, where their soul is supposed to be. You can’t reason, teach, or help such beings. They just are who they are.
Air Calv, they can be put down though. Thank you for your service.
Pray for them. God is merciful and just.

It’s staggering to me how many of the responses to giving aid to those that are suffering from the growing ISIS threat are armchair quarterbacking this massacre.
You’ve got the:
Total Isolationist:(“It ain’t here so screw em’ “).
Historian: (“History shows that this was inevitable because…”)
Political Adviser: (“If Clinton/Bush/Obama would have done this instead of that then this wouldn’t have happened.”)
Military Genius: (“All we have to do is box them in with air-srikes here, a tank-brigade there, and a regiment of hard-chargers here. Cut em’ apart and then destroy them in detail.”)
What Glenn is talking about is action, rather than endlessly talking ****. It may not be much more than buying these victim’s time, but I’ve never seen a faster growing movement like ISIS. It’s appeal to the young men in the Middle East is incredible. They’ve married their religion to specific real world goals, and have excused their total lack of morality as the will of god. But most importantly they are enjoying incredible success, which only propels the movement. By any objective definition they are NOT a terrorist organization, they are an army, with a leadership that makes Stalin look like a piker.

I will research him VRW. You wrote about alot of specifics, I’ll look into them.
 June 4, 2015 at 5:10pm
I fully support aiding those who are victims of ISIS. But it must be a multi-pronged approach to have any effect.
Money and aid should go to the victims to help them meet their daily needs and re-locate, but an equal amount should be given to those who stand against ISIS militarily. The threat is growing.
The only way to stop the carnage in the mid east involves dragging the Muslim Brotherhood out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue by the scrotum.
America will be blamed for Obama's actions for 100+ years.
We really screwed the pooch in 2008 & 2012.
If Obama really wanted to defeat ISIS he would mount a Khe Sanh like air campaign against them. One month, 21,000 sorties, 2500 by B 52s @ 30 tonnes of bombs per trip.

The “real” socialistic power brokers like Islam, which is why the liberal media is being instructed to support it. They don’t like it for it’s religious aspects, they couldn’t care less about that, but because Islam is sold as both a religion and a political system.
It’s a political system that is designed to crush individual freedom, and manage vast amounts of people, and it works surprisingly well. Atheistic socialism doesn’t work so well because it puts the burden of a cheerless and miserable life on the people in charge, which forces them to use everything from fear to genocide to control the populace. It can work but it’s costly, and susceptible to revolution.
Islam puts the burden of a sad and hateful life on their god. “It’s Allah’s will that you live a miserable life, perhaps for past misdeeds. Not the government.” “The government and Allah’s will are one. If you don’t like it, then your fight is with god himself.”
It’s surprisingly effective, and something the socialistic power-mongers will need to establish a one-world government.
You are 1000 percent correct. Those who have sought to control the masses politically have always feared religion. It is the one thing more people will follow and die for more than patriotism or nationalism. With militant style sharia islam, they can get what they want, complete control without opposition.

I need more details on the specifics regarding Rick Perry before I can support him. Having the support of “real” heroes, is defiantly a plus with me, but I need more. So far my top 3 are:
(2) Scott Walker
(3) Rand Paul
Good choices. I favor Walker, not sure I fully trust Cruz to hold firm if some liberal media polling data starts to come calling. Rand Paul isn't in my top three though I'd take him over any liberal if he got the nomination - just not happily. I also need more info on Perry.

NO NO NO NO NO...NO RICK PERRY
He is a career politician...he has done NOTHING in his life other than run for office. He is SOFT on the border, he is SOFT on the Constitution, and he is SOFT on libertarian ideals as well. The man is a great campaigner (but then so was Bill Clinton and Obama). The man knows how to work a crowd (again, so did Bill and Obama).
Perry would be a disaster for Conservatives and libertarians alike. He is an Establishment GOP man through and through. He believe in and supports the Patriot Act and I bet the USA Freedom Act as well. He is FOR the NSA metadata collection and FISA blanket warrants. He talks about how he used the Texas Guard to give air support to the Border Patrol but he could have SHUT DOWN the Texas border and didn't because he is FOR the GWB "Guest Worker" Program here in Texas becoming a national model, just like GWB tried to push in 2006/07.
Probably the best things that Perry did was get the Texas State Abortion Limit Law through that restricted abortions to the first 20 weeks and stopped state funding of Planned Parenthood.
Perry pushed for the Texas Toll Road system on the idea that the roads would be Pay to Drive for 10 years but once the bonds were paid off, the roads would be free to drive. In the 9th year, Perry refinanced the bonds for another 10 years to build more toll roads and then SOLD the RIGHTS in perpetuity to the NTTA (run by the Mexican Telcom Billionaire Smily) making the roads FOREVER toll roads!
Hey RANGER, don't forget my brother, Jauquin Rodriguez.
With all due respect, and Marcus deserves a lot of it for what he did. I do not know him well enough to know his politics, or for him to shape my political decisions. Seriously people we need to get over this collective mind set if we want to fix this country!! I will probably get a lot of down votes because I am "disrespecting a service man”….but I’m not, I just dont believe that being a soldier makes one an expert on what is good for me.
Well you can rest assured as he stands there smiling and recalling the absolute lowest, hardest points of other people's existences with a sh*t eating grin on his faces that he will co-opt anyone else's story because his is pretty weak.

Success in prosecuting a war in Iran depends on many factors. The most important is the political and military will of the United States. Obviously if we approached it, as we should any war, with total and absolute commitment then Iran would lose.
Unfortunately that’s not how we approach war anymore. We treat it as something akin to a manageable and controllable police action. We are also no longer unified in spirit to defeat an enemy, who although technologically primitive, possesses religious zeal and would unify to defend their nation.
Iran also would seek the protection of Russia and China which in the current political environment they might receive.

I used to live in New Mexico, and the reason for the high crime rate in one word is, “drugs.” It has become a major artery in the drug pipe-line from Mexico.
I disagree. The main reason for the high crime rate in New Mexico is Mexicans, followed closely by the fact that all of the Cops are their cousins, who refuse to do a damned thing about them.
The City of Albuquerque had an "official" population of a half-million when I lived there. Problem was, they freely admitted that they had an "unofficial" population of 1.4 million because of all the Illegals in the city. They also freely admitted that "over half" of the drivers in the County had no insurance, which's why the rest of us paid outrageous insurance rates and couldn't get "Uninsured Motorist" Coverage to save our butts.
I was never so happy to be transferred as when I left that place.

Just a reminder:
A 12 gauge might make you feel better, but you need to think in the long term. I assume that most of the people on this site can think of plenty of covert solutions to this little drone problem that don’t involve questions from law enforcement or lawsuits.
Drones malfunction and disappear all the time. Just sayin’
I've never seen one up close but they're probably not too easy to "catch." I'd be curious to see what others will suggest.
I wonder what Johnny Law would have to say if you shot one of those bad-boys down?
@zorro. Mine flies faster than 55 MPH. @Ranger if I'm following FAA guidelines ans it's within my eyesight, I can see you so I'll know who to take to court.

It’s the media stupid.
It doesn’t matter how good someone is, if everything they say is filtered through a negative filter by a media that hates them. It forces them to always be on the defensive, and ensures their message is never told.
Until their influence is diminished, the only winners will be those that the media selects.

Anything, and I mean anything, to show non-democratic candidates as rude, ugly, mean-spirited, hateful, incompetent, stupid, richer than you, racists, misogynists, war-mongers, lying, and deceitful, will be used by the media infinitely. The story they create, for these candidates, will never go away.
I cannot imagine anyone choosing to go through the hell that the media will create for them.
Like any whiny ass lefty, all youve got to do is punch them right in the mouth and they curl up in the fetal position. The days of worrying about what the media thinks of you is over.

Public schools, for better or worse are places where a lot of kids of have to co-exist for many long hours. If a kid smells so strongly of essential oils that it creates a distraction for the other kids or teacher then he’s gotta go.
