TheBlaze often uses Gawker Media blogs as sources for their own articles. Coincidentally, one of the authors on Gizmodo, a technology blog owned by Gawker Media, just posted an article about a movement going around to replace Jackson on the $20 bill with a woman. Some of the commenters AND THE AUTHOR OF THE ARTICLE believe Elizabeth Warren is the perfect choice.
Why TheBlaze credits such a leftist company for a lot of its own content is beyond me.
Warren on a 20? Isn't our currency devalued enough already?

Here’s what will happen to Clinton…nothing. The Repubs. will talk big for a while, maybe even try to get her to appear in front of a hearing. Then they’ll let it go. The media won’t cover this like they should so most of the American public will be clueless to its seriousness. Even if the public did learn of this, by 2016 everyone will forgive & forget.

“and it made me want to work harder and be a better example that someday might allow him to view things from my perspective, if only for just a moment.”
Why? Why should anyone who disapproves of the gay lifestyle have to view things from a gay’s perspective? Everyone is allowed to feel the way they want to feel. If a person simply disapproves of the gay lifestyle, but does not go around verbally abusing gays or physically hurting them, then there’s nothing wrong. You may not agree with how they feel, but shut the hell up about it. That’s the problem I have with the gay community…they expect everyone to accept them for who they are yet they do not accept the ones who disapprove for who they are. The gay community and their supporters have always said, “What we/they do behind closed doors is nobody’s business and it doesn’t hurt any of us.” But it’s not behind closed doors. It’s the first thing they do, announce they’re gay. It’s like they’re expecting push back from people just so they can scream discrimination. Just shut up and live your live. All they want is equality, but all they ever do is try to set themselves apart from everyone. “Ambassador for inclusion” … that’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. Stop trying so hard to be something special.
"... “Ambassador for inclusion” … that’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard."
Amen to that, Reb
when Billy's term is up, they'll award the job to some Imam.
The same goes for being Christian. Just shut up about it and live your life and we'll all live a lot happier. Stop trying so hard to be something special, cause you're not.
"and it made me want to work harder and be a better example that someday might allow him to view things from my perspective, if only for just a moment."
Exactly, Reb. My take on it is that maybe he has looked at it from your perspective and he doesn't like what he sees. Now stop trying to make me like you because of your sexuality. I'll make you a deal Bean. I won't discuss my sex life with you and you won't share yours with me. K? Buh bye.
You are absolutely rigt!
And it would seem in this day and age, many Christians never say anything about it until they get asked by the media.
It's one thing if someone (famous or whatever) said something out of the blue, but MANY are asked by a media person, then all of a sudden they are "bashing homosexuals" (Phil Robertson GQ comes to mind).

I live in a small, rural Midwestern town. Our PD is a joke and has been for years. Not long ago, the city fired the chief (he was an idiot and deserved it) and hired a 23 year old kid as the new chief. This kid’s entire law enforcement experience consisted of 3 years as a part-time police officer…in our town. He went from an inexperienced part-time cop to chief overnight. In my town, it’s your name that gets you places, not your skill-set. He then began hiring his friends. One such friend was recently promoted to police sergeant after only about a year in law enforcement. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. The chief, a former volunteer firefighter in our town, spends much of his shifts hanging out at the firehouse socializing with his buddies. That’s what you get when you hire kids to act as your town’s emergency services (including the FD). The only time they do any actual police work is when they place themselves in hard-to-see spots where they can hide and catch speeders just to generate revenue for the town. I’d love to see our PD replaced with this private firm.

Liberals love to point out the science of things. So why does science not tackle the subject of gay human beings? Because the scientific world knows that the gay community doesn’t want to hear the answer. Scientifically speaking, humans aren’t meant to be gay. It’s unnatural. The purpose of living beings is to procreate. Two gay humans cannot procreate naturally; therefore, humans were never meant to be gay in the natural world. Some animals can alter their gender, but we cannot and never could. So if liberals love science so much, why do they never look at human homosexuality from a purely scientific standpoint? IF human homosexuality is in fact determined on the genetic level, then it is a genetic mutation. It obviously can’t serve the purpose of human evolution without natural procreation, so said mutation is clearly a genetic mistake.
The science community is examining homosexuality...
...I don't know where you get the science that it is "unnatural" however....
and technically we would expect them to be a dying breed, since they can't breed, that is unless they choose to CHOOSE to procreate with the opposite sex

Sir, why do you have a howitzer on your front lawn?

I truly believe it is perfectly fine to disagree with the gay lifestyle. We, as humans, dislike other humans for all kinds of reasons. It’s ok to not be accepting of a particular human action. It’s how you handle it that matters. Obviously if someone chooses to verbally abuse or physically hurt someone because they are gay, that is wrong. But there is nothing wrong with feeling a gay lifestyle is unacceptable. After all, we live in a time in this country when many people berate others just for being christian. You wouldn’t believe the horrible things people say about christians, and most (if not all) of them who say these things are liberal. So why is it ok to dislike someone because they are christian, but if you dislike the gay lifestyle, you’re a horrible bigot? Liberalism and hypocrisy go hand in hand.

I laugh at all these armchair architects who say that a commercial airliner full of jet fuel crashing into a skyscraper wouldn’t bring it down. Really? How often do architects test the strength of skyscrapers by flying commercial airliners full of jet fuel into them just for testing purposes?
Pew researched revealed that anti-Jewish harassment is at its highest since they started measuring the issue in 2007. That includes in the U.S. as well. I frequent a particular technology blog in which much of its readers are young & liberal. During the height of the Israel/Palestine conflict not long ago, a vast majority of those readers voiced their hatred of Israel. History is repeating itself. I never thought I’d see the day when many people in the U.S. hold the same sentiment as Hitler. And just as it was back then, a majority of the world doesn’t care. Do millions of them have to be put to death before anyone cares? Evil exists in this world and unless we’re willing to stand up to it, it will win.

Part of it, as he mentioned, is due to the age of the internet. Without having to say these things face to face, more often than not doing it anonymously, kids do not have a filter anymore. They know they don’t have to deal with life’s consequences of saying and doing such things. Another reason is liberalism. Not necessarily the political view, but the idealistic one. As years pass, to people who are liberal, there is no reason to censor things. In their minds, nothing is inappropriate. Guess what? That damages children, whether they think so or not. And lastly, part of kids acting this way is their upbringing. Christianity isn’t just a religion. If you strip away the religion and get to the root of christian, it’s about behavior. Knowing between right & wrong and choosing to do right. Even when you take away the purely religious aspect of it, christianity has brought so much good to society. Healthy morals & values. It teaches kindness, generosity, courtesy, & discipline. I myself am a non-religious person, but I live my life using all of the goodness that christians, including most of my family, have taught for centuries. I raise my child with those good morals & values. It is possible to take what is good with christianity and pass it on to your children without actually being religious, but with christianity having faded in our country over the years, we’re seeing the byproduct of that…bad kids and people.

Months later and media outlets are still quick to use the “unarmed” descriptive term. Once again, one doesn’t have to be armed with a weapon to be dangerous or deadly.
Yes, let’s release this report to the public so those animals can get worked into a frenzy and destroy the town AGAIN.

“I can promise you one more thing,” he said. “Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.”
Remember when America stood this proudly? Remember when we were this tough and American exceptionalism wasn’t a bad thing?

Ladies and gentlemen, if you think our biggest threat is groups like ISIS coming from the outside to do battle on our own soil, you’re probably only half right. The battle is already raging on our own soil, but most of the American public refuses to see it. Our freedom of speech has deteriorated, freedom of religion is under attack (unless you’re muslim), millions of law-abiding citizens are spied on by our own govt., our right to bear arms is constantly under attack by those who wish to disarm us to make us easier to control. It’s all happening right here today. Our Founding Fathers and those who stood with them would not tolerate such things. Are there not enough freedom, liberty, & rights loving Americans left to stop this? We’ve become so complacent that most seem content to just lay down and let it all fall apart around us. It breaks my heart. If what’s going on in our country today hasn’t woken up the masses, nothing will. The only thing left is full-on tyranny. We’ve failed our Founding Fathers.

There is absolutely no need to redesign our flag which was designed by the very people who created our nation. The gentleman said, “We modernize everything else on the market.” So? That doesn’t mean we should. Just because progressives have changed the nation doesn’t mean we give up on our flag and change it too.

“Unlike many other speakers, Walker spent more time touting his own achievements than he did attacking President Barack Obama”
This is all I ever ask out of a campaign, whether it’s presidential or otherwise. When election time rolls around, all we see are smear ads. How about giving us candidates who tell us what they will do right instead of what the other guy is doing wrong. In the end, we have little idea of what these people stand for because they’re too busy smearing their opponents.

Trayvon walked away at first. He could have kept walking and still be alive today. Well, maybe, because he probably would’ve found more trouble since then. But instead of going home, he turned around and went back to confront Zimmerman. To me, that tells me he had intent to do harm to Zimmerman.
The title of her speech mentions inequality. Here’s the reality of “inequality”: when a half-white, half-hispanic man kills a black kid in self defense, the left and the media scream WHITE MAN kills black kid. But when a half-white, half-black man becomes president, that man himself, his family, the left, and the media scream BLACK MAN becomes first BLACK president…and then he and the media go on to speak of how he’s been oppressed in his life.

It’s so sad to see one side pass laws that chip away at our freedoms only to see the other side have to pass MORE laws in an attempt to bring it back to the way it was before the first law was passed. Passing laws to cancel out other laws. It adds up to a huge mess of laws and no one, not the public or the justice dept., knows what the hell is going on.

When Dems are in control: They insert “riders” into bills and when the Repubs refuse to vote for the bill, the Dems blame the Repubs for shutting down the govt.
When Repubs are in control: Repubs insert riders into bills…Dems get mad and claim that’s not the proper way of doing things. Repubs happily give in despite what We the People want.
little, if any. short of total anarchy followed by a rebuilding, little will change, in our lifetime.
And you try to call them up to tell them how you feel and you get some intern whose answer to every question is "I don't know." I'm really getting irritated.

That’s what I hate about liberals…all of the name calling and stupid attacks. So often they have nothing solid to back up their ideals with, so they resort to childish tactics in order to demonize the opposing side. What’s even worse is that so many Americans fall for it.

Far-left liberals & progressives are taking this country down a path. I guarantee no one will like the destination at the end of that path, including the liberal public. Leftist voters help these clowns achieve their anti-American goals because they think if the crap ever hits the fan, they’ll be immune to the dangers that lurk ahead. NO ONE is immune to government tyranny, they’ll be sorry when we get there. And who will they turn to? Us, the gun-toting, liberty, freedom, & rights loving Americans who still believe in an American spirit that was instilled upon this nation going all the way back to our Founding Fathers. The fight is being bred out of the American because it’s the only way for tyranny to take hold of a free people. When it happens, the weak will turn to those of us who still have fight left in is. Unfortunately, this is probably what it’ll have to take for them to see the err of their ways.
When men like Gowdy speak, the politicians on the other side of the aisle do not listen. They do not care what he has to say. Hell, there’s people on his own side of the aisle who do not care. Many republicans have proven time & time again they can talk the talk for freedom, but they fail to walk the walk. Nothing gets done when our nation is as polarized as it is today. This is why I fear for our future. I’m afraid we are passed the point of no return.
