    AdBlock Plus is most definitely a useful tool, but just be aware that it doesn’t protect against this canvas fingerprinting.

    I’m am so sick of all these advertising & other companies profiting off of our private, personal information. Out info is bought & sold like we’re cattle and we get jack for it. Oh I know what some will say…we get the use all these websites for free. Screw that, that’s not a good enough excuse. As the saying goes, if we’re not paying for the product, we ARE the product. I’d like to see privacy laws catch up with all the modern tech being used to violate our privacy.

    Murry, be aware that even though AdBlock Plus makes sites like this tolerable to use, it DOES NOT stop canvas fingerprinting.

    He says, “but I don’t think, spiritually speaking, that there’s any conception of God that should be telling you to be violent,”

    I’m not an expert on christianity, but I do not believe that particular religion is telling its people to be violent or engage in wars. I do believe it teaches to defend oneself, but that’s different. On the other hand, muslim extremists are, in fact, telling the world that their religion instructs them to kill Americans, christians, Jews, etc. Yet Mr. Petty chooses to call out christians, saying no one has it more wrong than them.

    Let’s not forget, 20,000 Jews just came together to give an American/Israeli soldier (a stranger) the funeral he deserved. Sounds like a violent bunch to me, huh? Do you see muslims doing this in Palestine?

    Wait a minute, is her name seriously Krystal Ball? Well then, shouldn’t she have seen that coming? Not not only did she not get it when he made the Howard Stern comment, she still couldn’t figure out she was being pranked when he called her a dumbass. “I’m sorry, sir?” No one bothered to cut off the caller, no producer in her earpiece told her it was a prankster. I knew they were dumb over there, but give me a break.

    “I don’t believe that any company has the right to deny access to appropriate medical care, same as the reason why I don’t believe that they have the right to deny me access to the washroom,” she said. “No company has the right to dictate what is decided between me and my doctor.”

    And yet another moron who’s so adamant AGAINST the Supreme Court’s decision, yet has absolutely no idea what that decision was. Guess what, lady (or man, whatever the hell you are), Hobby Lobby isn’t DENYING women access to certain contraceptives. They just don’t have to pay for them. Why should they? They shouldn’t have even paid for this person’s hormone therapy, but they were kind enough to do so.

    “A grocery store tries to have enough employees at the checkout lines to get all their customers through with minimum delay.”

    Except for Walmart. Most of their supercenters have upwards of 30 check-out lanes and we’re lucky if they open 5 of them. Most of the time in my area it’s 2 or 3 regular lanes and 1 or 2 express lanes. AND WHY DO YOU ALLOW PEOPLE TO WRITE CHECKS IN AN EXPRESS LANE?? The only time I ever see them open them all at multiple stores in my area is for Black Friday and the days following Christmas when everyone is returning stuff. The largest retailer in the world and they refuse to open up more lanes.

    Maybe I could see removing the christian flag, but I, as a non-believer and also a Vet, find absolutely nothing wrong with a cross as a grave marker. Respect the person in the grave, not the stone marker that stands above them. That particular silhouette of a soldier holding a rifle, kneeling in from of a grave (usually represented by a cross or the boots/rifle/helmet configuration) is very common. It merely represents one member of the military paying respects to his/her fallen comrade. There’s no need to analyze it any further. Stop worrying over such trifling things.

    Maybe he shouldn’t have gotten out, but his actions did not warrant being run over.

    I disagree with the assessment that it is a “praying” soldier. It is merely a kneeling soldier, kneeling at the grave of his fallen brother, showing him respect. I often visit the graves of my family and kneel down as a sign of respect and to simply be close. I am not praying.

    I am not a religious person. I was once upon a time, but things happen and people change. Some would label me an atheist, but I do not label what I am. And I surely do not like to be labeled an atheist because of people like the Vet in this article fighting to change this memorial. Atheists all too often try to remove all signs of religion from everyday life. Whether it be a cross at a soldier’s grave, a nativity scene on the lawn of city hall, or whatever. I do not stand with these people in their war against christianity. I too am a Vet and I fought for the religious freedoms of our citizens. That includes christians. I acknowledge that this nation was founded upon many of the morals, values, and principles of christianity. I raise my child with many of them as well. Not because we are religious people, but because they are good morals & values to live by. I may not agree with everything they believe in, but I recognize the positive benefits christianity has brought to society all over the world. I will stand by christians who are fighting for good and fighting for what this country is meant to be before standing beside atheists who insist their views are the only views.

    If she had shot him, I would’ve supported her right to protect herself and her children. I do not disagree with being rough with the guy to get him out of the vehicle and getting him subdued and under control. He’s criminal scum, by all means do what you gotta do to get this scumbag under control. The problem comes when he is finally under control. I used the example of police brutality. More & more we’re seeing videos of ******* cops beating the crap out of someone when they shouldn’t be. This is no different. Once the guy is under control, there’s no reason to slap, punch & kick him in the head. Not unless he struggles and tries to get away, then use force to regain control. But to slap him around when he’s on the ground, motionless, and covering up…that lowers us to the level of the criminals. We have to be better than them.

    Unfortunately, as a resident of Illinois, we’ll probably never see the day when our Chicago Mob politicians repeal Common Core. Not unless something drastic happens nationwide or if the Dems suddenly deem CC unnecessary. Then the Dem lapdog state of IL will lick the boots of its masters and follow through.

    It is well known in this state that no Repub. Gubernatorial candidate, can stand with the fundraising power of the Chicago elite. Even as we became the most broke state in the nation, its people continue to put libs in office. How can people be so blind & so stupid? They clearly see this group isn’t getting the job done, yet they change nothing. We’ve had Repub. candidates for Gov. well ahead of the Dem. incumbent, but when the vote count reaches Cook Co., the Dems always pull away. Sickening that one county, one city can rule an entire state.

    Joe, my guess is you’re a conservative, judging by how you judge me. You’re giving good conservatives a bad name. By ASSUMING you know me and accusing me of being someone I’m not, you make yourself sound just like liberals. Do yourself, and other conservatives, a favor and bring it down several notches. The guy deserved to be subdued by force, a lot of force, but once he’s on the ground and remains still, hold him there. That’s it. If this were a police video of cops hitting, kicking, and slapping the man once he was on the ground and motionless, you’d be screaming at the cops for being militaristic commies. So as I said, at times this video is no different than one we see of police brutality. If the guy struggles and tries to get up, by all means, use more force to put him back down. But essentially beating him while he’s down and suggesting to shoot him execution style is absolutely uncalled for. Stopping an animal doesn’t mean you have to lower yourself to one.

    The creators and supporters of Common Core keep saying the standards are designed to keep America competitive on a global scale. Tell me something, if we need Common Core to remain competitive, then how did we ever become the greatest nation on Earth without it? We became a global powerhouse in industry, manufacturing, innovation, and invention without Common Core teaching the children who grew up to become the ones who accomplished all of this. We became great without CC, we don’t need it. Start with teachers who educate rather than indoctrinate. My aunt is the business manager for a nearby school district and she put it very well: There are teachers and there are educators. Today’s schools are full of teachers, whereas they were once full of educators. Teachers just come to work, follow the curriculum that the school puts forth, collects their paycheck, and goes home. They aren’t interested in the well-being of the children anymore. As a father of a child now in Jr. High, I see exactly that.

    I’m not defending the carjacker by any means, but there are times when the bystanders go too far. Once they have him subdued and he’s lying still, at times they continue to hit, kick, & slap him. This is no different than police brutality. At 1:35, one of them says, “Shoot him in the back of the head.” Animals. That person wants to execute this guy just like a terrorist would execute an “infidel.” If I were put into this position, there’s no doubt in my mind I’d be one of the people to help stop this guy, but don’t lower yourself to an uncivilized low.

    Social media sites, especially facebook & twitter, prove that not everyone should have a vast audience to voice their opinions to.

    Make no mistake about it, these people are not engaging in a legitimate political debate or protest. The only reason they’re mad at Obama is because they feel, as black people, he isn’t taking care of them (giving them) enough. When he was elected, blacks popped up all over the news saying how they couldn’t wait to get free stuff. And these people have the nerve to say they’re as bad off as slaves. Ha! Most of us here in IL wouldn’t mind if Chicago sunk into Lake Michigan. Our State would be so much better off without its mob politicians.

    So the President of the United States is taking a trip to one of our border states where a crisis of a flood of illegal aliens is ongoing, but he’s not there to do anything presidential. He’s there for campaign fundraising. And contacts the state’s Gov. to ask if he’d like a quick handshake photo op instead of a meaningful meeting. I can’t believe so many people in this country still love this guy.

    “Tranny” is a slur? Can we please stop allowing whiny groups determine what we can and can’t say? The gay community wants their own version of “******,” that’s the only reason they push for tranny being derogatory. Tranny used to be common-use and no one, NO ONE, had a problem with it. Now yet another minority group wants to benefit from being a minority group, all while saying they just want to be treated like everyone else.

    Dear Blaze, please don’t get your stories from Gawker Media, the cesspool of news.
