    Ventura is a bit of a tool, and a loud mouth, but he was a SEAL before they were Seals, and served in Vietnam. Kyle was a hero but he was known by many of his friends as a Texas tall tale teller, and a prankster too.

    Kyle had a good and true story to tell, but he mixed it with some crazy stuff that simply did not happen. As far as the punching Ventura story, I was behind Kyle 100%, mainly because I wanted it to be true, but I’ve since read a lot of the testimony, and now I’m pretty sure it didn’t happen.

    Ventura didn’t do himself any service by suing Kyle’s estate, but I do believe that although loud mouth jerk Ventura may be, he was unjustly defamed by Kyle.

    Shot across the bow my A**!
    Let me get this straight. The newly elected Greek leader whose entire lazy, and corrupt economy is essentially funded by Germany, is laying flowers in order to shame Germany for their Nazi past, in the hopes that Germany will be too ashamed to say no to further fund the corrupt black hole of Europe?
    Are they really that childish and stupid? Because if they are, no sane “Adult” government should give them a dime.
    A shot across the bow would be the Greeks stepping up, and doing something about their situation, not being the childish welfare queens of Europe.

    If abortion is murder then the only argument that justifies a case of abortion would be; When is killing another human being NOT murder?

    War comes to mind, but since a fetus is incapable of being an enemy combatant, or posing a threat to a national entity, I guess that argument would be out.

    State sanctioned execution for committing a capitol crime is another, but again that’s not credible or possible either.

    So we are left with only one credible justification. Self defense. If it’s likely that the mother would be severely injured or killed by giving birth. Although such conditions are rare, and make up an incredibly small percentage of cases, it does occur. In such cases a decision to abort could not be judged as murder, by any definition. The mother and if there is a father would have to make a decision. Does the mother risk it? Obviously no doctor is perfect in their opinion, and many supposed “lethal” births went off without a hitch, some did not, and resulted in the death of the mother. Some resulted in the death of both the child and the mother.

    In such cases I do not believe the “State” or anyone else has the right to make such decisions, ever! When your A** is on the line then You, and only You, get to make the call.

    Other than this very limited case, I would agree with the principles that this author details in this piece.

    I think people are forgetting that this attack wasn’t a threat, or bad language. It was the single most successful hacker attack in modern history. Sony is a private company that made a decision that they felt was in their best interest.

    The real question is: Why is it necessary for an Atheist to have Ten Commandments? Why not 5, or 7, or 22 commandments, or none at all?

    The problem with Atheism is that rather than doing its own thing, and not worrying about what other’s think, they are constantly in attack mode against everyone that doesn’t believe as they do. Why someone who doesn’t believe in the existence of God would even care what a Christian does or thinks is beyond me.

    If they are the enlightened, the brilliant, firmly rooted in logic, and the elite of the human race as they claim, why are they so ill-willed, nasty, and hateful to everyone that doesn’t believe as they do? Honestly if the product of the Atheist religion is an arrogant and ugly person I can understand why they are, and always will be, a small minority of nasty people who believe in nothing but themselves.

    History has shown us that when it’s a choice between a Democratic Flaming Liberal, and a GOP sponsored Liberal Light candidate, the Conservative base stays home or votes third party…every single time. This always ensures a Democratic victory.

    That’s like saying the Rotary Club is behind the curve on Domestic Violence.

    Since when is the NFL a domestic violence organization? I thought they were about football.

    Most of the time I am convinced that our president is diabolical, but then he says something like this that proves what an idiot he is.

    There are thousands of scenarios where you can see yourself getting caught by a bad guy with your pants down, and are able to do nothing.

    But for the unarmed the number is infinite.

    There are plenty of non-capitalist nations that capitalist haters can move to. I wonder why they don’t?

    Get. A. Gun.

    Learn. How. To. Use. It.

    Until. You. Do.

    You. Are. A. Victim.

    And. You. Always. Will. Be.

    “I think activists are always taking responsibility for what they are doing,” he said. “We clearly underestimated the sensitivity of the situation.”

    Perhaps the stupidest quote in modern memory.

    @ds5

    No, I’ll no longer vote for the “he’s the only chance we got guy” picked by the media and the GOP power mongers. I’ll vote my conscious, and if Cruz were to run I’d vote for him in a second. Even if I thought he didn’t stand a snowflake’s chance in hell of winning.

    Nor do I pretend to know what the answer is to this problem. But based on what I am observing, America is hungry for bread and circuses, not the painful truth.

    @ERIC

    That’s how I see it. The problem isn’t Cruz, it’s the majority of the American Voters.

    Nailed it!

    He can’t win the primary much less a general election. That’s simply the hard truth.

    The Tea Party conservatives attempt to take over the GOP has made some inroads but are not even close to any form of conservative reformation of the RHINO’s that still have solid control of the party. Therefore he will not come close to winning a Republican primary if he runs.

    But let’s say a miracle occurs and he does. Now Cruz is facing the Democratic nominee. Now contrast Cruz, who is telling Americans the truth, and talking about hard choices, tightening our belts, and economic storms that we will have to weather with the Democrat who is telling everyone about how things are better than ever, and how he/she will be opening up the largess of the Federal Government and giving people “Free” stuff.

    Consider for a moment that the current American public voted for Obama twice. Regardless of these polls that seem to tell us American’s are center-right, the proof is in the pudding or pulling the voting lever anyway. Do you think the majority of Americans will vote for Cruz?

    Jon Stewart has practically made a career out of snarkily pointing out every error, misinterpretation, or misrepresentation of FOX NEWS. He’s now getting some of that back, and the excuse of “I’m just a comedy show.” isn’t working anymore.

    The evolution of this incident will of course be Jon Stewart increasing the tempo of satirizing Fox News.

    This reminds me of Who Shot Liberty Valence.

    Ransom Stoddard: You’re not going to use the story, Mr. Scott?

    Maxwell Scott: No, sir. This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.

    …and people will believe it. Does anyone think that after a 10 page horror story going in detailed anatomical depth about the rape of this woman, that most people will care or even read the 3 paragraph blurb that the “victim” is actually just a lying ass hat?
