Did anyone watch the video? He tries to run a police roadblock and nearly takes an officer out in the process. He then hops out of his car and while initially he puts his hands up, he is shot with his hands inside his coat. You make threats to police, then try to hit one with your car, and then put your hands where police cannot see them and yes you are going to get shot. Don’t be a dumb ass and your chances of being shot by a cop decrease dramatically.
No, you can't tell a business what goods or services to provide, just that whatever they do sell, they have to sell to anyone who wants to buy them. Is that distinction really too complicated for you to grasp? I see at least five comments involving Muslims and pork every time one of these stories comes up. I would have thought that even the few seconds it takes to type a comment would be enough time to figure out that it's not the same, but I guess some people can't write and think at the same time.

When I looked into crossfit the gym wanted 300 a month to be a member. So this clown can afford 300 working part time but cannot afford to have health insurance?
All he needed was good catastrophic care. Demcorats have been destroying that option for decades-- Thus creating their stupid argument for Klowncare....
Not all Gyms are that much and this guy is a beast and known in the area, he probably gets a discount becaus he does such a good job marketing his gym.
Much like an up and coming boxer may get a discount at the gym.
It says he is a coach at this facility...part of his compensation for doing that may be a drastically reduced, or free, membership fee.

I’,m a huge supporter of Glenn and all he does but I have to ask the question, where was Mercury One less than two months ago when floods wiped out entire roads, towns and home and killer several people here in Colorado?
I don't know but it could be that when the roads are all gone 18 wheelers can't get there and only helicopters are helpful.
They were there just because you don't hear every place they are helping at a blink of an eye shouldn't cause you to be upset and possibly make a comment that very well might make you look silly.They were also in SD when the blizzard went through when we didn't hear one word about it on the news at ALL so please don't doubt they where they can be if it's possible to get into the areas think about what you said the roads were flooded but I bet they found a way to get help to them in another way we just didn't hear how they did it but I trust Mercury One and the wonderful people that keep things going with all the devastation that has been happening all over the country and GOD BLESS all the wonderful people who donate to make it possible to get help to those people.

I do not advocate violence against law enforcement officers (yet) but let me tell you if they tried this with me I’m going to mess somebody up and I’m taking at least one of the with me.

The other comments below are correct. Blaze online or via Roku is HD, Dish is running a standard def feed. A rep told me they use standard def bandwidth for channels that aren’t as watched and keep the HD feeds for the “popular” channels.

I had Dish installed on Tuesday after 10 years with Comcast. I also discovered the no hassle method to cancel service. As soon as the Dish guy left I took all my Comcast equipment to the local service center walked up to the counter and told him I needed to cancel my service. No muss, no fuss, and no offers to try and keep me.
Now Dish. Offer The Blaze in HD and we’re talking.
He meant broadcast in HD. It is not currently broadcast in HD.
That is on The Blaze's end actually HD equipment is not cheap and while its becoming the industry standard it aint all the way in yet. I have to believe the long term plans of this network include HD capacity but its not the easiest of transitions. So Dish will probably offer HD blaze. Once the Blaze itself has HD.
The blaze is in HD, I have it via roku in 1080p.

Colorado resident here.
Actually the CBI system is very portable. All you need a laptop or ipad with an internet connection. What is not portable is a FFL dealer, who must record the transfer. My guess all of the FFL’s in the area told the dirty hippies in Boulder and there progressive sheriff to pound sand.
Yup. what self respecting FFL would help these filthy hippies confiscate and "destroy" beautiful weapons?
I bet most of the "illegal" weapons end up in the attending officers collections.
Colorado resident here as well.
I am sure you're correct about the FFL's telling them to pound sand.
Remember, each time an FFL runs a check here in Colorado it costs them about $35, which they don't care about when they're selling you a weapon for hundreds or thousands of dollars as they can build it into the price of the weapon. However, the new law states that for private sales they can only charge $10 for the background check. No FFL is going to lose $25 per transaction times however many guns the program "buys back".
Here in Aurora The Firing Line simply doesn't do private transfers anymore.
Go to BPS on the North side of I-70 (in Denver) and there's a notice telling you not to open your gun case if it's a shotgun that can hold more than 5 shells or any rifle/pistol other than .22LR than can hold more than 15 rounds. Nowadays the guy who slaps the trigger lock on the gun before you take it up to the gunsmiths will ask you what's in the case and if it's "not allowed" he'll tell you not to open the case and go put it back in your car. BPS doesn't want the reputation of helping the city with it's asinine gun laws.
The liberals screwed themselves with these new laws. Hopefully, it unites conservatives and hunters to get rid of the libs in the Statehouse.
Most people know this, its just something they ran into
where someone held their feet to the fire.
They will get around the law that slows down their
attack on honest citizens.

Was told I needed to show ID to purchase a 5 pack of BIC lighters. Told them they could keep the lighters, plenty of gas stations to buy from.

If you can’t feed em, don’t breed em.
NO one is supposed to raise a family on minimum wage. Minimum wage jobs aren’t meant to be careers.

Denny, Good catch. That said the Camero doesn’t have a cup holder there anyway, so clearly it was set up.
March 14, 2013 at 12:30pm
Fake. I’ve been selling cars for 12 years and never once allowed someone to take a test drive with an open beverage in the cup holder….
Also the person who said the salesman always drives first needs to find a new car lot. I haven’t done that in years, its an old school control method.
@ Rooskibar03, look again the container wasnt open!
Denny, Good catch. That said the Camero doesn't have a cup holder there anyway, so clearly it was set up.
Well, yes, it was obviously set up. I don't think that's the question. The question is was the salesman in on it. You can pull apart every little aspect, but maybe he really wanted to sell a camaro so he let the drink slip. My main question is why are so many people here so incredibly quick to cut this to pieces. Have we gotten to the point of cynicism that we can't simply enjoy a funny video? Come on guys, let's let ourselves have a little fun sometimes.

Wasn’t a problem for David Gregory as they didn’t pose a treat, but its not okay for a solider to have.
David Gregory wasn’t trying to sell them in a roadside cash deal.
Gregory broke the law, but, that's okay with you? Nice hypocrisy.
Gregory was selling something much worse, he knew, did it in plain sight, and you said nothing. Nothing is what you will have in the end.
What hypocrisy? Possessing an illegal weapon is less serious than possessing with intent to sell. This guy Haddad had been in violation of the law for year and nobody would ever have bothered him if he hadn’t tried to sell. Just possessing the magazines, while technically illegal, would have been nobody’s business but his own and that would be okay by me. It would have been okay by me if the cops had just confiscated Haddad’s magazines and let him off with a warning, and it’s okay by me that they busted him. It’s their call.
"What hypocrisy? Possessing an illegal weapon is less serious than possessing with intent to sell."
Oye, dipstick, hypocrisy is "do as I say, not as I do". You can't dismiss one man's illegal action and abhor another's. So, yes, hypocrite you are. I guess you also have problems with defining and understanding the word "illegal".
Main Entry: hyp·o·crite
Etymology: Middle English ypocrite, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin hypocrita, from Greek hypokritēs actor, hypocrite, from hypokrinesthai
Date: 13th century
1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of or religion 2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.
“You can’t dismiss one man’s illegal action and abhor another’s.”
Yes, I can because I’m not a robot, so I understand that laws have purposes. Arresting Mr. Gregory for displaying a borrowed magazine before returning it to its owner would have nothing to do with fulfilling the purpose of the law. Arresting Mr. Haddad for attempting to make a unregulated sale to some guy he doesn’t even know does. And I’m not even for the law. I think anybody in the country should be able to own any kind of a firearm they want. But it is the law. I have to follow it, and so does Mr. Haddad.
"... laws have purposes."
Uh, yeah, they do. Don't break them. You have a decidedly sophomoric understanding of logic. You can't stand for a "law" for one and not for all.
"And I’m not even for the law. I think anybody in the country should be able to own any kind of a firearm they want. But it is the law. I have to follow it, and so does Mr. Haddad."
So, according to your last statement, Mr. Gregory the Pius should be prosecuted for breaking the law. Thus, you, hypocrite. QED.
Mr. Haddad wasn't aware that it was illegal because the law was just changed. Mr. Gregory was advised that it was against the law and he chose to shop around for a bribed official to allow him to possess his. Shopping around seems to be easy for politicians and liberals. Bought and paid for with tax money.
Again, the difference is purpose of the law. Stopping a magazine from being displayed on a tv show is not the purpose of the law, stopping it from being sold to an unknown party is. Busting Haddad and letting Gregory slide is the right call. The police knew this because, like me, they are not robots.
Once again, NO. Possession of said magazine is illegal in D.C. Gregory broke the law. He should have been prosecuted but wasn't. If you don't see a double standard or can't wean yourself from your silly argument, you are obtuse to say the least. Your repetitive replies also make me think you might be a 'bot, regardless of your repeated assertions to the contrary.
There’s nothing silly about my argument. Our legal system has judges instead of law adminitrators because the spirit of the law matters and human judgment is part of the system. Cops get to decide whether to arrest you or let you off with a warning because the spirit of the law matters and human judgment is part of the system. District Attorneys get to decide not only if there is enough evidence to prosecute you, but also whether prosecuting you would serve the interests of justice because the spirit of the law matters and human judgment is part of the system. Like I said, I’m not crazy about this law, and it wouldn’t have bothered me any if the police had given this Haddad guy a break, but hauling him in and prosecuting him is a justifiable decision in light of the spirit and the purpose of the law. Prosecuting Gregory would not have been. If you really can’t comprehend that, then you have no business calling anyone else obtuse.
You refuse to understand the meaning of "law". Just because a certain prosecutor or jurisdiction may "choose" to arbitrarily enforce or not enforce a law does not negate the written implications of said law. You are arguing "letter" versus "spirit"; the former is objective and the latter is subjective. I'll go with the ideas of the founders of our country. We are all equal under the law. When you equivocate or bend the essence of any rule of law, you create an imbalance that has precedence. That is not a good thing. Break the law, prosecute. Sentencing is how you deal with an inequity in the "spirit" of the law.
I will no longer call you obtuse. How's about just plain ignorant.
You are living in a childish fantasy world. It is not, never has been, and never will be either possible or desirable to prosecute every violation of the letter of the law. Decisions have to be made. The criteria on which those decisions are based include the possibility of successful prosecution resulting in conviction, the seriousness of the offense in terms of the harmfulness or potential harmfulness of the act, the intent of the perpetrator and the intent of the law. By all of those criteria, choosing to attempt to prosecute David Gregory would be the decision of an imbecile. Attempting to prosecute Nate Haddad is a judgment call. If it was up to me, I might have let him off, but it is not entirely unjustifiable given that no reports on this story indicate that he knew or cared who he was selling to or what the purchaser intended to do with the magazines.

This “letter” is a re hash of a chain email from the 2008 elections saying the same thing. He did tweak the wording a bit, but it makes be very suspicious about its validity.

Glad to see a 3 year old in a car seat.. Notice how that seat belt is right across the child’s neck? Things would not go well for that kid if they are involved in an accident.
That all aside, I get the feeling this is fake, not to mention stupid.
