Excuse me but the bike rider does have a right to use that road and to do so in whatever manner is most safe to himself or herself. They don’t have 3,000 lbs of steel protecting their body. If they are occupying the full lane its because at that point there is no other safe place to be and you should not attempt passing them. Go put yourself on a bike and see what its like. And don’t tell me they shouldn’t be out there. They have every right to be there. Slow down and be courteous.
If you actually watched the video you would have seen the a-hole driving in her lane against traffic. He was trying to provoke, plain and simple. I hate you friggen bike riders. The law says "single file" and you a-holes bunch up and flip off car drivers when they can't get around you. I have no sympathy for bike riders on major roads. Don't get me wrong I thought about riding my bike to work. I even plotted out a few ways to get here, but since the city doesn't provide bike lanes, then forget it, I'm not driving in traffic, it's just stupid.
I never said they didn't have the right to use the road, but here's the deal: If you are going to share the road with other people operating machines that could easily kill you, then you need to follow all of the safety rules. These guys were doing whatever they pleased and didn't give a rat's ass what happened. If you look back at the video at the moment the car and bike hit, you can clearly see that the car was at almost a dead stop and the biker was intentionally steering into it. It was HIS fault they collided, and it was HIS fault the situation escalated far beyond what it should have been. For the most part, drivers are very comfortable sharing the road with bikes, it's the bikers who seem to have problems sharing the road with cars.
“Go put yourself on a bike”…
Why should I repeat your poor choices, to justify your indefensible position?
“3,000 lbs of steel”, try 7,300. With the trailer and equipment I was around 23,600. Traveling on a state highway, at 5am, 45 mph in a 55 mph zone, there was no shoulder or bike lane, but as I came around a blind corner 3 bicyclists ride abreast, 20-25mph on this mountain highway.
I’m the bad guy though.
You are all the same. Children in adult bodies. Get some common sense.

Truth is truth friend, despite the post-modern philosophy you were indoctrinated with at school.

None of this is true of emails sent from Hillary’ server to other Non-Govt email accounts or to another account on Hillary’s server. By Hillary’s definition these are all personal emails. It is those emails that were destroyed and likely had all kinds of nefarious business in them.

And when is someone going to have the brains to ask this woman – if she is elected president, is she going to permit members of her Cabinet and Administration to do the same? Will it be OK in Hillary’s presidency for the Sec of State or the Sec of Defense to set up their own e-mail server in their house and conduct ALL of their Government business on it? Will it be OK for them also to hide from the American people any and all emails they choose in blatant disregard for the Federal Laws on records retention. Will it be OK for them to intermingle their personal email with Government emails. Will it be OK for her Cabinet members to carelessly handle classified and even TOP SECRET communications. If not, why not?

Of course she didn’t sign that document. Hillary was not an actual employee like a normal person. That would be way below her status in life and would imply that she was accountable to someone other than herself. NO – Hillary did not sign anything. Believe me on this one. You see, she was really SUPPOSED to be President and was only PLAYING Sec State until it was her turn to take over the White House. She sure as hell was nobody’s employee and certainly NOT the People’s SERVANT.
You are right. Huma took that pesky paperwork and "lost" it. By that I mean buried it as well as any follow ups from HR on its status. Huma always takes care of Cankles!

How dare you ask questions I don’t want to answer. Off with your head.

Moderate – your theology is so messed up I don’t think I can even begin to correct it, so I won’t. I can only say that whatever church you are attending you need to flee from it immediately because it has completely muddled your mind on the LAW of God and the meaning of the GOSPEL. I can only pray you start over and develop a good foundation of Biblical truth with the help of a mature christian to guide you.

KING – you go further and further off the reservation. You now seem to believe that ANY consensual sex is pleasing to God and is not sin. Where does your shortcutting of righteousness end exactly?
 February 17, 2015 at 4:27pm
KING – The simplest interpretation of scripture is usually the correct interpretation. The whole of scripture is very clear on homosexuality being outside of God’s plan, no more or less so than any other sexual sin. While this may be difficult to accept, it is the truth and anyone telling you otherwise is not speaking the truth.
 February 17, 2015 at 4:04pm
KING – You did not read Romans for yourself so here is just a bit of it for you. Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Your explaining this away as some other specific form of homosexuality (lusting for “young men”) and not all homosexual behavior is just not supported by the scripture.
 February 17, 2015 at 3:49pm
I think Romans 1 is pretty darn clear. Have a read on your own. If you want to be blind and deaf as to what this says that is entirely your prerogative.
 February 17, 2015 at 3:41pm
Nothing new under the sun. There have alway been “men of God” who are deceivers and proponents of their own human wisdom. That is not Christianity and despite the age of the “2000 year old letters” Rob Bell refers to, they are no less true and no less relevant today than they were the day they were written. They are the WORD of God. God’s thinking does not change.
"Christian churches will become even more irrelevant if they fail to embrace gay relationships and that he sees the Christian umbrella becoming more favorable of homosexuality in the very near future."
Fact is, Christian churches are becoming more irrelevant because they don't teach, or adhere to the principles of, Christianity. They are not fixed in principle. They change more than the weather.
AMEN AMEN AMEN

Feminism run amuck. Ms. Maxwell learned her lessons well at whatever feminist left wing university she attended. You can’t blame her now. She is ruined.
what she is practicing is what the the leftists journalism school has taught her.
They admit to it and so will she: the journalism of reporting and presenting only fact and science does not exist.
The leftists preach it must all be filtered and represented through the lens of the writer's perspective and the needs of the editor for social good.
Such good little pets of the left.
 December 5, 2014 at 2:45pm
No. They simply wanted revenge. You think there would be peace after a trial and an acquittal? Justice is not aim of these people. Throwing a fit irregardless of the facts is all they want.
 December 5, 2014 at 11:24am
First of all she is just too lazy and too damn important to actually read anything as tedious as a transcript. Second of all Sean, you cannot expect post-modernists to have a discussion based on facts and evidence. There is no “truth” to a post-modernist. Therefore my narrative and my truth can be wholly unsupported by fact and be just as valid as yours. So there you go; no CONVERSATION as she believes we should now have, can be based on anything as old fashioned as facts and evidence. Only feelings and baseless opinions will eminate from people like this honarable Congresswoman. This is all the Left has.
I believe you are correct. It would appear all too many blacks wish to ignore the terrible crime rates perpetrated by blacks,
The CDC published a new study called “Homicide Rates Among Persons Aged 10–24 Years — United States, 1981–2010.”
Homicide rates in 2010 by persons aged 10-24 by race (per 100k):
The problem is not among the black population as a whole; rather, it is due to a “small sub-culture that glorifies violence and lives and dies by the gun.” It is the gang culture, characterized by widespread criminality, tribalistic warfare, through-the-roof unemployment, extremely high rates of out-of-wedlock births (72.1 percent among blacks in 2010), widespread welfare dependency, and nihilistic art typified by “gangster rap.”
The horrifying homicide rate among black Americans is the most visible and tragic symptom of a much deeper cultural disease. And the cure is a philosophy of reason, individual responsibility, productive work, and life-oriented values.
Where is the outcry from black leaders and the MSM to propagate the “cure” rather than feed the disease like this Congresswoman is doing.?
Too funny, you make the argument about relative truth and fact-free feelings coming from "the Left" but fail to see it in your own arguments. Perhaps Representative Holmes-Norton didn't want to read the Grand Jury evidence because it was so shoddy and unsupported or perhaps because there was no cross examination. Most Liberals and African Americans wanted to see a trial, an open, public trial with the presentation of evidence in the public record. That was never held and the Grand Jury process was subverted by a callous Prosecutor and wreckless police department. Wilson seems to have lied under oath and his lies went unchallenged because there was no "adversary" to question his statements.
I think this exerpt from Romans 1 fits:
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
Or this from Genesis 3:
4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

There is no gay gene. That too is fiction. Trust me on this one. As an identical twin to a gay twin I can be quite certain he was not born gay.
 October 18, 2014 at 11:27pm
Spike has it right. The book of Hebrews is clear. Christ is the superior prophet, priest and King and his priesthood supersedes and replaces the Levitical priesthood that never had the power to save anyone. Having ended the Levitical priesthood there can be no cause whatsoever to establish a new human priesthood. The Church got this wrong somewhere in the 4th or 5th century. Christ is our only mediator in the presence of God and he needs no help from men in fulfilling that role. To suggest he does is to diminish his position and his work on the cross.

Warning Blaze readers — When responding to articles you must begin with the premise that God does not exist. Otherwise you are being unfair to the those atheists, feminists and other post modern world views who, because it is an inconvenient truth, must deny the existence of God to justify their behavior. Let’s be kind enough to not offend their delicate sensibilities.

The Nazis were fascists and like today’s leftists -most unwilling to share the platform of ideas. Instead all opposing thought was exterminated.
