    Moderate -

    Sniveling, utter nonsense.

    ISIL is firmly based off of the muslim religion of islam.
    Prove your facts about Christianity or STFU!
    Prove your facts that ISIL is killing more muslims than Christians.
    Al Qaeda is against ISIL only as far as ISIL is able to raise more money and garner more clout in the muslim world compared to Al Qaeda.
    You better read up about the muslims in America. Running their daughters over with cars, shooting them, nearly decapitating them, among other despicable acts are committed more and more within the muslims communities of the US of A.

    Stop being so happy to be ignorant!

    NukeHaze – It is an urban legend that Gen. Pershing instructed or even allowed his troops to coat their ammo with pigs blood/fat. But don’t believe me. Do some research on your own.

    SAR1ARM1 – You’re probably right that I was kinda coming across as trying to one-up the ol’ Jar Head. Also, I will take my ten years of active duty service with a tour in Iraq and happily stand side-by-side with many of my current and former brothers in arms. However, it doesn’t matter how poetic we want to word our vengeance if we can’t get the CoC and the D.C. politicians to grow a pair when it comes to dealing with the terrorists of the world.

    Yiddishlion – Sorry, but you have been led astray or are knowingly telling a lie. I’m pretty sure it’s the former since I have no other reason to doubt your sincerity.

    According to an article published in the Hindustan Times on April 17, 2013, China released a white paper indicating that it has a standing army of 1.4 million conscripted military personnel divided into 18 different corps. They are second in annual military spending at $166 billion while the United States is first with a $496 billion annual budget and troops levels of 450,000-490,000 in voluntary service members.

    It doesn’t take that long to do a little research to find the facts instead of the rumors.

    Don’t get me wrong, I liked it.

    But… there was nothing said that would send a shiver down my spine, as TheBlaze has titled this article.

    How about something to the effect that we will cut up their corpse feed it to swine. We will track down every one in your family to the third cousin and do the same with them. We will obliterate their land to such an extent that nothing will grow there for at least 200 years. Anyone even remotely associated with ISIS/ISIL, or whatever acronym you might fall under shall be rounded up and imprisoned at the bottom of a huge pit 100 meters in diameter. We will spray you down with a mixture of urine and pigs blood 5 times a day for 30 days. You will only be fed one meal every other day and we will drop in only enough food to feed 1/5th of those in the pit. What’s the meal you ask? A ground up slurry of pork and maggots should tempt your taste buds.

    We are tired of playing by “the rules.” The only rule we will follow is the one that the quickest means to you and your kind’s complete annihilation in the most degrading and offensive manner we can dream up.

    Once we are done, there shall be no history that ISIS/ISIL ever even existed.

    I’m getting giddy just thinking about it!

    Anyway, if I was to pen a letter to the op-ed section of my local paper or to a website, it would look something like what I have wrote earlier. There is no serious threat from the ISIS/ISIL/Taliban/Al Qaeda cowards anyway!

    Have a nice day,
    Rich

    Hollywood does produce football movies on occasion.

    Take, for instance, Oliver Stone’s “Any Given Sunday” with Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, James Woods, Mathew Modine, LL Cool J, Lauren Holly, Ann Frickin’ Margret, Aaron Eckhart, Charlton Heston, and a number of HoF football players.

    This movie had a budget of $55 million, in 1999. That’s not a small budget at all! However, earnings of $100.2 million at the box office fell well short of studio expectations as well as an aggregated score of 50% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Bottom line is Hollywood isn’t going to invest large sums of money to get top talent and movie makers if they’re not getting the returns they want financially or in publicity (Academy Awards and such).

    Bubba_Fatt,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have reminded my family and friends of this very same thing many times. I have argued these points hundreds of times over the years at social events, breakfast stops, and even after church in the parking lot.

    It seems that you and I are the only one’s who remember these facts. I know there are countless chicken-s**t republicans who choose to ignore these facts. They ignore the truth and hang their hat upon chants of a poorly ran war. Did they ever think that they can believe both positions? Even to believe the later requires one to recognize the great success the Surge had in Iraq. Instead, instead of remembering the brilliant plans of Gen. Patraeus and the fearless bravery of our troops, the White House and media have made sure we remember a disgraced former CIA Director and constant stories of soldiers not even knowing why they were fighting.

    I’m just glad I hadn’t lapsed into some sort of mental breakdown where I was the only one who knew the truth.

    Again, thank you!
    ~Rich

    TheBlaze – Please do me a favor. Do away with the advertisement that shows the sleepy bloated face of the mom from Hunny Boo Boo! It is disgusting to look at and the ad is way too large anyway. It’s like the office prank where someone sends you an email that asks you to get close and pay attention, then BAM! There’s that evil face of Linda Blair from The Exorcist and some loud screeching noise!

    Yup! That’s what you doing to your customers every time we click to read a story, then BAM! Hunny Boo Boo’s mom!

    It’s just not right…

    HI_DON I believe you are correct. It’s a joke on the viewer and a way for him to get attention. More hits equals more money on his website or whatever it is called.

    Good deductive and reasoned assessment.

    The cop was the idiot here. He’s got a serious case of “don’t f#%k with me ’cause I’m a cop!”

    Was the comedian funny? Irrelevant. Did he call anybody a name or violate the PC rules? No. Was he swearing or cussing? Nope. How about making physical contact with someone? Again, nope.

    Imagine the comedian standing next to the cop but this time the comedian is describing everything they are doing in French or German, hell even Spanish! My point is, he was just speaking!

    For speaking, the male cop used profanity and called the comedian an “@sshole.” After a few more moments of speaking the male cop got up from his chair and stormed out of the restaurant to confront the comedian. Here’s the thing… with the badge and the uniform he carries the full weight an authority of the law. The cop uses that authority (granted to him by the citizens of the community) to become verbally abusive, make threats, and initiate a physical altercation. All because the comedian was speaking.

    Whether this whole incident was staged as a prank on the viewer or not, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that many of you are advocating for the comedian (citizen) to have the crap kicked out of him and possibly arrested by… A COP…for doing nothing other than SPEAKING!

    My first response when reading the title to this article was, “Who the heck is Michael Brown?” I mean, I could recall any national personalities from politics, cinema, or sports that Obama would be referring to. I only had to open the story to realize Mike Brown is the black thus that got into a scuffle with a police officer and ended up getting shot and dying.
    The victim: Black, young man, just askin’ the officer for some Skittles.
    The villain: White, older man and police officer who shot and killed that young innocent boy just ‘cuz he was askin’ for some Skittles.
    I’m seeing a pattern here. Obama wishes he had had sons instead of daughters and he really likes stories that have Skittles in them.

  • [1] August 11, 2014 at 11:08am

    It was Rahm Emanuel who said that when he was in the Obama administration, not Eric Holder.

    That’s not an endorsement of Eric Holder. I believe he is one of the main reasons for the state of our nation. His failure to do his job gives us the result of a president who thinks he is above the law and Holder never seems to miss an opportunity to blame racism for all poor behavior of minorities.

    Did anyone else realize her front door opened outward instead of inward? Seeing the house up on cinder blocks makes me question whether the home is to code. It may have been an abandoned house that transients used on occasion. Cleaned up and sold to this young woman, one of them could have returned.

    Anyway, just an observation.

  • [55] August 9, 2014 at 2:50pm

    Thank God for her courage and strength to fight back, survive, and to protect her baby and home. Her message to others to, “fight back, no matter what,” should resonate with those on the left who would prefer she and her infant were beaten and killed.

    On another note, I hope she has learned that she needs to keep her shotgun loaded for it to work as designed. One blast to her assailant would have insured that he would never invade and attempt to brutalize the occupants of another home.

    I think this goes all the way back to the original MD at Boston Children’s Hospital who decided that Justina had been misdiagnosed as having a degenerative muscular disease (by her main MD and the leading expert in this field at Tuft’s Medical Center). Instead, this rookie MD diagnosed Justina with a specific psychological pathology which BCH just happens to be conducting a study on. I say MALPRACTICE.

    Next you have the Supervising MD at BCH in the Psychology department COLUDING with Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) in order to place Justina on a medical hold and to MISREPRSENT the facts to a judge in a court hearing ACCUSING Justina’s parents of child abuse.

    If you go back through all the stories here and the Boston Globe you will find a whole bevy of shady players who either didn’t care about the wellbeing of Justina, sought out an agenda based on Justina’s case, or put their noses into a medical case that they should have stayed out of.

    Finally, between the elected Governor’s of MA and CT and the career bureaucrats of MA and CT DCF playing the PC game as well as the unsavory practices at BCH, I am sickened by the whole bunch. As a parent, I would want the job performance of each and every person who had some sort of dealing with Justina’s case gone through with a fine comb. Any irregularity would be cause for my MASSIVE lawsuit against every individual as well as their agencies.

    **** ‘em all!!!

  • [1] August 2, 2014 at 2:31am

    Instead of an either/or question, why not both?

    How about law enforcement officials “hunt for the bad guys” while they “respect my rights?”

    Seems pretty simple and straight forward to me.

  • [5] July 30, 2014 at 3:22pm

    I can’t stand to hear the high pitched squeal of a child who needs or wants something from his/her parents at a restaurant. Worst still, I can’t stand a lousy parent who refuses to pick the child up or at least escort the whinny brat outside. This type of distraction is rudeness to the other patrons and I applaud this restaurant for taking a stand.
    I am a parent to 3 lovely children. That does not imply that they have never experienced a “Linda Blair” moment and lost their freakin’ mind when we have gone out to dinner. I made it clear very early and often, “if you start acting up I will take you to the car and sit with you until everyone else is done and gets back in the car.” There were many times I ate a nice dinner at home out of a to-go box.
    For the parents that say, ” How are they going to learn if you don’t allow them to express themselves,” I say take the to a fast food joint or some crummy hole-in-the-wall place to conduct your learning experiment. Rule of thumb: if the restaurant serves alcohol in the dinning area leave your brats at home.
    On the rare occasion that we were able to afford hiring a babysitter for my precious terrorists in training and needing the escape for a lovely, quiet night to rekindle the romance, the last thing I want to hear from the booth behind me is some whinny kid as he’s slamming into my back by bouncing in his booth.
    Please… be kind! Leave the kids at home.

    This incident occurred 3 years ago at 1:40 am on June 8, 2011. The officer’s name is Daniel Harless. He was fired in January of 2012 by Safety Director Thomas Ream for making threats during multiple traffic stops. Ream cited a pattern of verbal abuse and making physical or death threats. In November of 2012 arbitrator Harry Graham ruled fired police officer Daniel Harless could get his job back if he gets medical clearance to return to work.
    As part of the settlement reached in November of 2013, the city has dropped its appeal of an arbitrator’s ruling that cleared the way for Harless to return to work pending medical clearance. Harless, too, will drop all claims, including a lawsuit that the city retaliated against him for applying for workers’ compensation and a grievance involving vacation and sick leave. Harless had been on medical leave since shortly after the June 8, 2011 confrontation with William Bartlett. Harless filed for workers’ compensation after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, which stemmed from a Jan. 1, 2003 incident.
    Daniel Harless, a 15-year veteran, will receive $40,000 from the city, a neutral employment recommendation and a retired-officer ID in exchange for his resignation as part of a legal settlement. Kristen Bates Aylward, deputy chief counsel for the Canton Law Department, declined comment.

    I want you to focus on the last sentence in Sec. 38-31 (c) from above. “It is an affirmative defense to this subsection that the failure to obey did not interfere with or hinder the police officers.” His failure to obey the command to sit down did not interfere with or hinder the officers from conducting their inquiry/investigation.

    In Sec. 38-32 (a) (b) from above would not apply during the informal questioning of the subject. Once the officer begin to detain him, he never appears to resist their commands.

    In Sec. 38-39 from above, it states that it is the responsibility of every citizen to immediately report the officers abuse to another officer or by contacting 911 to report the incident.

    Sec. 38-93 from above defines assault. It is easy to see in the video that the officer intentionally (and recklessly, Did you notice they were against an upper deck railing?) assaulted the subject by striking him repeatedly in the chest to inflict violence upon the subject. The officer definitely violated the rules of force escalation.

    Anyone agree or disagree? Why?

  • [1] July 24, 2014 at 7:47pm

    The young man may have been drinking but he did not appear to be slurring his words, using repetitive speech, swaying or seeming unbalanced in any way. You’ll notice initially his hands are clasped together down below his waist as he is listening to the officer.
    You’ll also notice how quickly he is able to regain his stance twice after being forcefully shoved in the chest by the heavier officer.
    Finally, you’ll notice that even during a high level of stress the young man is able to express himself in a coherent manner.
    The game was over 3 hours and they stop serving after the 7th inning stretch. That would indicate a relatively low blood alcohol level on a breathalyser.
    You are the only one injecting that the guy had something to drink on the way to the game or before.
    Regardless, he still does not appear to meet the definition of public intoxication.
    Just so you know, I’ve been a paramedic since 1993 and have hundreds if not thousands of dealings with intoxicated or drunk individuals on a professional level.

  • [2] July 24, 2014 at 7:31pm

    Travis,
    You are wrong with regard to this particular incident.
    0:00-0:13 It sounds like the officer believes the suspect provided alcohol to a minor. The ultimatum given by the officer is “you can leave or go to jail. Now, which is it?”
    At 0:14 the officer raises his angrily voice, shouting “Answer the question!”
    0:15-0:22 the suspect asks the officer if he can answer the question but his response will need explanation beyond a yes or no answer.
    0:23-0:24 the officer calmly says, “alright, let’s hear your answer.”
    0:25 As the suspect begins to speak the officer orders the suspect to, “sit down.”
    0:26-0:28 the suspect glances behind himself and takes a step backwards but does not sit down.
    0:28 the officeer orders the suspect to “sit down” a second time.
    0:29 the officer is squared up on the suspect and using both hands he forcefully hits the suspect in the center of his chest. The officers palms are out and there is a loud smack noise heard over the general stadium noise.
    0:30-0:31 the suspect regains his balance, raises his voice and points at the officer as he yells, “Officer, that is abuse of your…”
    0:31 the officer shoves the suspect more forcefully, propelling him further backwards.
    0:32-0:42 the suspect regains his standing and states, “abuse me again!” Officer, as a citizen of the United States of America, abuse me again!
    0:43-0:45 the suspect turns to ask a 2nd officer, “Please officer, refrain from touching me!”
