The question that comes to me is ” how many special forces personnel were killed in capturing these high ranking terrorist leaders?” I doubt if they all laid their weapons down and gave up with out a fight. And when we pull out of Afghanistan, is the war against America over? Something in Denmark smells in this prisoner swap in my opinion. Also was there lots of American tax dollars paid to someone along with this exchange of five for one prisoner swap?

These weird thinking people must be hit in their purse strings. I guess I will have to refrain from eating their products. I love Cherry Mash.

Shame on any American that wouldn’t trade 1000 terrorists for the return of one American prisoner.
Red: Shame on any government dumb enough to make ' deals ' with hostage taking / ransom loving terrorists. They have just put targets on the backs of all Americans - especially the military men who will be left in Afghanistan . Is the Obama crowd trying to weaken our military as well as alienate the American people ? Sure seems that way. They seem to be purposely pushing sensible , law abiding people to civil disorder by making them lose faith and trust in their government. These people are truly evil - as well as dedicated..
Absolutely! That anyone opposes negotiating to get a soldier back shows how manipulated the sheeple are. That negotiating with someone labeled yterrrorist' is different then negotiating with a nation state or army general shows how the word terrorist has made people lose their values and their common sense. In wars you negotiate with the enemy and do prisoner exchanges to get your soldiers free; what ever label you put on the enemy. That the sheeple don't believe this any more shows how a word can be used to change peoples values. Unbelievable!.

“Gun Control” can be translated into “People Control”. When just a few unstable, insane people can threaten the freedom many people rely on, depend on and die for becomes a threat to the wellbeing of many people who protects themselves using knives and firearms. Determining if a person is incapable of owning a firearm for personal self protection before they commit an act of violence is impossible we all know that. So what is the solution in preventing people from committing insane acts. Some argue, doing away with all firearms, knives, sharp sticks, sling shots, large rocks and cars would cut down on insane actions of a few. But would this harm those citizens who protect themselves and their family members by using all those devices in self protection? The debate will likely go on and some idiot politician will make a decision based on “getting votes” during the next election. The old saying ,”the creation of jobs solves all everything” seems to be on the back burner of government leaders.

I think I remember Mr. Obama being the President that stated “Military members are now all volunteers and should all be required to PAY for their own medical insurance.” Does it surprise anyone that now Mr. Obama ignores the fact that the VA is falsely hiding the fact they are hiding their incompetence in treating our veterans?

Yes, the food was good but my freedom and the Constitution is better. Lots of Mexican restaurants on the block and we won’t miss the Chipotle after they are only a bad memory.

Community organizers are great at organizing protests, riots and handing out tax dollars. What did you expect from this President?

The President of the United States is elected to serve the entire population.. President Obama’s plan to help the minority young blacks is definitely needed but why not include all young people needing help in their struggle in this bad economy, lack of jobs and unsecure in their future’s. Just helping a select group could be in this case considered a plan to seek votes from a certain group.. Just my two cents worth. Have a great day and don’t forget to vote in 2014.

Getting up set because a performer is wearing an empty gun holster is much like my eight year old grand boy getting sent to the principles office for pointing his finger at the hall ceiling and saying bang, bang. Our anti-firearm/freedom haters are definitely a little (lot) crazy in the head.
Students have been kicked out of school for doing much less with the Libs running the dog and pony show.

I question whether our US elected politicians realize a job is required for a citizen to feel useful, needed, secure loved and happy. And yes, a job to provide a person’s food, clothing and housing is required. If the CBO predictions that Obama Care will end 2 million jobs by 2017 are correct that train wreck is going to destroy many lives. I witness many welfare recipients demoralized as they shove that vision card towards the cash register person. Our failed system is being lead by non-thinking idiots.

What is the most often left item in a motel? Yes, a firearm. This proves the importance people put on their security/safety when traveling in unfamiliar territory. Is it against the law to forget and leave your personal protection device in a motel room? Not in most states that have reasonable governing bodies and sensible political beliefs. Question: would a personal protection device make you feel safer while traveling?
Thats gotta be false. Not everyone carries firearms. I'm sure there are other common items that are forgotten and left in motel rooms more often than firearms. My first guess would be garbage,condoms or drug paraphenilia.
Answer: Yes they do.....

Buying and learning to use a good firearm is much cheaper and more reassuring than purchasing an expensive insurance policy. What’s a good nights sleep worth? The 2014 election cycle should be an interesting event.

All patriotic Americans should read Dakota Meyer’s book, “Into The Fire”. It is a humbling book wrote by a warrior (Dakota Meyer) explaining war in real terms. It would be nice if all our elected officials would read this book before sending young men and women into futile combat. The US foreign policy would probably head into another direction. Thank you Dakota Meyer for your service to our nation, may you have a long and happy life.

Thank you Cracker Barrel for re-examining your ideology and business practices! I eat at your restaurant at least twice a week and I am too old to look for another excellent restaurant. Thank you.

There is hope! I was in a McDonalds restaurant Friday during Obama’s lengthy speech and looking at the 30 some odd customers there only one lady in a far corner of the room was actually watching the speech. I think America is waking up to this fraud.

Having read the book “Lone Survivor” twice I recommend the book and am looking forward to viewing the movie. I wish all patriotic Americans would read the book. The book makes one realize just how lucky our nation is when such men and women volunteers to serve in our military in order to preserve our way of life and freedoms. It is very humbling to read this book. Yes, less than one percent of citizens serve in our military but that one percent is the back bone of our nations liberty and freedoms.

Bottom line, as our elected government officials ignore the fact our economy and employment opportunities are going south and the smart citizens realize they need more safety devices in which to protect their nation, community and family. The 2nd amendment was put in place for a reason and is still an important reason in which citizens can sleep better at night. Lets start examining the mental health of people more closely which does not include more firearm laws.

And Mr. Grayson is one of our brilliant elected officials doing our business in Washington D.C. Does everyone realize we are in deep doo doo. These people couldn’t run a pop corn stand at the local theater for a profit. I wish 2014 would hurry up!

History does not entrust the care of freedom to the weak or timid. Spoken by Dwight D. Eisenhower, General and President of the US of A.
