    Not off topic, but illustrative – today is the birthday of the Medicaid and Medicare programs, which were the first health care “fixes” the government imposed (and that initiated price inflation in health care.) Medicare was also the first middle-class entitlement program developed to keep taxpayers on Johnson’s plantation; many of the fine union workers were upset about Great Society programs and had to be coaxed back into providing PAC money to democrats with an entitlement program of their own.

    Story details the Blaze missed:
    1) The train actually had slowed down to 30 mph – it was far from “speeding.” The engineer did throw on the emergency brake when he saw the girls, but of course, it takes several yards to stop a moving train.
    2) The girls were on a trestle that goes over a reservoir, making this an extremely stupid act.

    I don’t blame the guy at all and see nothing wrong with only allowing adults into his establishment. He’s obviously willing to deal with the consequences – not having families dining at his restaurant. At the same time, this might encourage those diners to come in who prefer not having to deal with screeching kids and a screeching mother who constantly has to reprimand her screeching kids. Take the kids to Long John Silvers for a fish dinner – they probably wouldn’t appreciate the menu at this restaurant anyway.

    Scientist Dawkins is a prime example of the reality of the leftist, atheistic ideologue – they see humans as a species, not as individuals. As such, there is no such thing as true compassion coming from them. Dawkins’ point – that rape or pedophilia in any form are wrong – was missed thanks to his fairly dispassionate descriptions of both acts. Like most leftists, he loves humanity but thinks that people suck. I hope that he gets the opportunity to live in a world of his own creation – THAT would be “hell.”

    The Satanists should get their wish – with one provision, and that is that any negative medical or psychological impact that an abortion has on one of the members cannot be the basis of a lawsuit. You pays your money, you takes your chances and you own the results. I may be a heathen for saying so, but aborting Satanists is not something to impede. Let the state write the provision into law and protect the abortion doctors from litigation by Satanists. And certainly, refer your favorite Satanist who wants an abortion to one of Kermit Gosnell’s associates.

    That really depends on the judge. In the US, there are many judges who hear assault cases and who have agendas (feminist). Regardless of the woman’s behavior, she is never the perpetrator. A few female judges will throw the book at the woman if she was the aggressor, because women who act crazy and are violent are the reason that men still have stereotypical ideas about women as leaders, employers, etc. Those women are an embarrassment to the rest of us.

    “Kerry, as is his wont, seemed and sounded as if he came from a parallel universe….” He does come from a parallel universe, where purple unicorns sprinkle pixie dust and make everyone educated and middle class, where no one pays their mortgage or has to put gas in their cars and health care is free, free, free. It’s the Obama universe, folks, the epitome of the altered state.

    When a parody site is taken seriously by the “smartest” people in the United States, it pretty much tells you who the low-information voters are in this country.

    These aren’t nerds – it’s ComicCon, so they’re typical Hollyweird types who think they’re funny. And yes, GTFO the road – every person who was blocking traffic should be charged and fined. Had they not been acting like dumba**es in the first place, the deaf driver wouldn’t have had to swerve around them and endanger other people.

    ““If every church would say, ‘I think we can do a food pantry … we wouldn’t have a welfare problem,” he said. “Our government would stop feeding people.” Unfortunately that’s not realistic. The government has helped create the idea through the media that religion and the churches are a problem rather than a solution. And if some atheist wanted food and had to go to a church-run food pantry for a handout, he / she would file a lawsuit saying that he / she should not be “forced” to take food from a Christian agency that was using it to proselytize. The ACLU would work tirelessly to close every church run food pantry, or at least to “monitor” them so that they could not say a word about the gospel or “impose” Christian values (like having a work ethic or practicing financial responsibility so you can buy your own food) on the people they feed. The “solution” would be to go back to having the government feed people.

    “Israelis do NOT have a right to treat the Palestinians with any less humanity…” Um, Archon, the Israelis DON’T treat the arabs with “less” humanity at all. Arabs are given equal opportunities, equal rights under the law – an arab woman serves in the Knesset, for goodness sake. Try applying the same standard to any arab – muslim dominated country. You’ll find that the muslims are the ones who deny “basic humanity” to anyone other than muslims, and in fact, ONLY those muslims who come from “good” families at that! The bin Laden name carries a lot of clout – that’s why Osama and his relatives pay others to blow themselves up!

    You forget – Skokie is a suburb of Chicago, where the term “speed limit” means “however fast you can go when you floor it.” Chicago drivers by and large are all speed-freak idiots and rude as hell. I’ve driven on the Dan Ryan and nearly had my rear bumper ripped off when going 15 mph over the speed limit. Like you, I get annoyed at the bicyclists who ride in gangs on two lane highways and hold up traffic, but in this case, I suspect the cyclist was in the right and the car driver was being a jerk.

    “..he believes that he and fellow actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays his husband Mitch on the show, “are normalizing what it is to be a same-sex couple.” The sad part is, he thinks this is a good thing. Funny, the gay characters on the show are depicted as being the parents of a little girl – who, if statistics bear out, is most likely to be straight. In real life, gay kids always whine about how they felt like outcasts in their families because their parents expected them to behave like straights in junior high and high school. Imagine, then, the angst that a straight kid growing up with two gay parents would feel when he / she has never learned proper heterosexual social behavior. “Normalizing” what isn’t is NOT progress, unless you are the marketing manager for a psychiatric facility.

    It would depend on PA’s age of consent. It is pretty close to W VA and could still allow 15 year olds to marry (or shack up) without parental consent.

    She doesn’t need to care. This was essentially a local program, and the SEIU thugs will make sure that Nevada votes Democrat in the midterms anyway, so facts are pretty well irrelevant. As long as Debbie keeps spouting the party line she will keep getting invited to be the party mouthpiece.

    “While he is entitled to his opinion, his public airing of it compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it…” If this is the case, then let’s all get cracking and find personal opinions voiced or written by the likes of Pinch Schulzberger and the editorial boards of NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, etc. and demand that THEY be fired for expressing their personal points of view publicly. After all, how can we TRUST them not to put their personal agendas into every news story disseminated through the New York Times and on the mainstream news broadcasts?

    I did a highly filtered image search (I’m at work) and saw a lot of pretty disgusting stuff – the “cornhole” game was unnerving as it took the vernacular very literally and added some BDSM to boot.

    I don’t think too many people leave their “hearts” in San Fran any more – more likely they leave used condoms and worn-out whips on the street corners. Pity what has been allowed to happen to a once beautiful city.

    “Whether it’s a religious perspective, or taking his quote verbatim, [Dungy] happens to be right!” Dungy IS right and was right at the time he said it. He was referring to Sahm’s prospective “reality” show, which would highlight his gay lifestyle as well as his football career. It’s kind of tough to be the “star” of a “reality” show, concentrate on playing the game of football and have the rest of the team plagued by sports reporters asking, “So, Bubba, how do you FEEL about your teammate being gay and doing (whatever) on his television show?”

    I’ll bet even money that those fake Obamacare applicants will find their way to the polls in November and vote straight ticket Democrat.

    “Police put a “mouthy” Caballero and his partner-in-crime in handcuffs…” Oooh – will they get a third try at the apple with those handcuffs in place?
