    ConservativeCanucklehead, Go canuckle yourself!

    It is ignorant to dismiss someone as stupid based upon their believe in creationism.

    It is ignorant to define the belief in creationism as profoundly dangerous and bizarre simply because you chose not to believe in creationism.

    Using ridicule attempting to make your point of view exposes your idea as not being as strong on the merits. And to fear a belief of others to be so dangerous that you believe it deserves to be eradicated will not change the fact that there are people who do not accept evolution as truth.

    It sounds to me like you fear the thought that people who believe in creationism might be right. If they can be right then your position might be wrong.

    We’re not arguing facts. We are arguing over interpretations of data and the methodology used to project that data into something claimed as a fact.

    Isn’t that the truth! None of us are perfect but if you’re going to criticize another, at least proof read and spell check your comments before posting them.

    Ok, now to my point. I wonder if President Obama and his wife, Michelle, will invite Mr. Griffin to the next State of the Union speech, as they did with the gay NBA player ,Jason Collins, or to a formal White House dinner event? Maybe one of them (the Obama’s) could comment to the media about how brave and courageous it is to believe in Creationism? They could even speak about how hurtful it is to judge someone based upon their beliefs, even to go as far as to state that it is a form of bullying?

    Bottom line; Blake Griffin will end up being ridiculed and vilified by the same group of people that placed Jason Collins up on a pedestal for his “bravery and courage” in the face of perceived vilification and ridicule. They expected Mr. Collins to face bully-tactics for claiming to be gay yet see very little reason to offer the same voice to someone who believes in Creationism. The group of people I most associate with bully-tactics are those on the left when they don’t get their way.

    Kenny,

    Are you high? I’m not trying to insult you but you made some foolish statements of fact.

    1) No one is promoting the idea that “everyone” be armed on a base.
    2) Definitely no one, except you, is advocating that fully automatic weapons be used.
    3) No one is saying that the firearm to be carried should be a rifle, since the majority of fully automatic weapons on a military base are rifles.
    4) No one is saying that any firearm carried by a soldier must be a government issued weapon from the arms room. Those are sensitive items.
    5) I served for 10 years with the infantry. Not once did we have a weapon come up stolen. To be more specific, if a weapon came up missing, no one was allowed to leave the AO until is was found and turned in.
    6) Who are these soldiers that you know who attempted to steal fully automatic weapons off of a military base?

    Mr. Lott was correct in stating that the rhetoric being used is full of shi7. Just like the people who are full of it…rhetorically speaking, of course.

    For geez sake! You guys have gotten of the subject so freaking far. Put your thoughts back on discussing the issue of whether or not soldiers should be armed or whether one of these characters was rude or pompous.

    Sitting arguing the merits of who’s the dang hall monitor and the importance thereof is absurd. Don’t snivel over the drivel. It’s the big stuff that counts.

  • April 5, 2014 at 8:06am

    I’m so sick of commander’s that have the same attitude as this guy! I truly respect you and honor you for the bravery you displayed in battle to save others but. that doesn’t qualify you to speak on this issue. Just because a commander is afraid that IF something were to happen on his watch, it might ruin his career is not a factual based argument for or against allowing those soldiers who attain a concealed weapons permit to be allowed to carry while on duty.

    What this former commander is wanting to do is to impose his will on to those service members beneath him. It has nothing to do with the facts or statistics. It’s nothing more than a self-serving mantra of self (career) preservation and nothing to do with soldier safety.

    And to be more specific, the arming of soldiers who are holders of a concealed weapons permit does not mean that the military will need to issue weapons and ammunition to every soldier. Quite the contrary. It is the soldier who is responsible for purchasing a side arm and ammo. It is the soldier that is responsible for the maintenance and training with the weapon. It is the soldier who is indefensible on an army base when a nut-job decides to exact his criminal vengeance upon anyone around. and therefore, it is the soldier who is responsible for his own safety.

    I guarantee that the commander of the murdering POS at Ft. Hood will be relieved of duty and his sergeants will be demoted, unless the DOJ finds a reason to charge them.

    Hey Oldtimer,

    I can’t allow your comments to go unchallenged.

    First, I don’t believe any of us said we hate cops. I think there is a healthy distrust for the way many of them go about wielding the authority we have entrusted them with. Here’s what I say cops should do: Obey the Constitution! Yes, it’s that simple.

    We absolve ourselves of so much personal responsibility and then expect Law Enforcement to do that which the Constitution gives them no authority to do.
    It is our responsibility to protect our family and ourselves and to make sure that we are secure in our persons, papers, and property. It is our responsibility to protect our freedom and that means to protect those same freedoms for our neighbors.

    As a “responsible” gun owner, I would have the common sense not to make false accusations to law enforcement. If more of us patrolled our neighborhoods with a loaded AR-15 strapped to our shoulder, I guarantee there would be less people up to no good.

    Anti-gunners have made it abundantly clear that they need absolutely no ammunition to justify their irrational fears and gun phobias. A true conservative would not wish a law-abiding citizen harassed and tazed.

    I guess I’m getting bored with you so I’m going to leave you with these parting words.

    Wise up. Grow up. Man up.

    If LEO is asking you questions, it is not because he likes you and wants to become your friend.

    “Do you know the law?” …silence.
    “How old are you?” …crickets.
    “Do you have any ID on you?” …mum.
    “Is that weapon loaded?” …enough.

    “I invoke my 5th Amendment right to not answer questions that might incriminate me. If I am not being detained, I’ll presume that I am free to go. You will need to speak to my attorney if you have any other questions. Thank you for your service. Good night.”

    The end result might have resulted in the same outcome but the kid’s case would have been stronger without giving additional points to LEO to submit to the prosecutor.

    Violation of 1st amendment rights to express his support of the 2nd amendment in the form of a peaceful public demonstration.

    Violation of his 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms is being violated with LEO’s attempt to disarm a citizen who is lawfully carrying a weapon.

    Violation of his 4th amendment rights to be secure in his person against unreasonable searches and seizures without a warrant based on probable cause supported by an Oath of affirmation.

    Violation of his 5th amendment right to not be compelled to be a witness against himself, nor to be deprived of his life, liberty, or property without due process.

    Violation of his 8th amendment right against cruel or unusual punishment inflicted upon him.

    Finally, I would argue this is a violation of his 24th amendment right to

    Ok….hmmm… how do I say this politely without ticking everyone off?

    Alright, please read my comment completely before you fly off the handle.

    This young man brought this upon himself…. I said to please read the entire comment before you go berserk.

    I completely agree he has the right to open carry his loaded rifle in a non-threatening manner all he wants to in public. I even agree, that is all he was doing. I’ll also agree to whole-heartedly supporting his right or that of any other citizen to open carry his or her loaded firearm in a safe and non-threatening manner. I do not dispute these facts, as they are not the actions that brought this about.

    Still with me?

    The kid politely says, “Am I being detained, am I under arrest?” The LOE either say no or refuse to answer him. At this time the kid needs to politely inform the officers he is leaving, then slowly turn and walk away.

    If you are not being detained, you have no obligation to speak to LE. If you are instructed to stay and/or are being asked more questions, ask the question again, “Am I being detained, am I under arrest?” They’ll continue to side-step, hoping you will say something they can use against you.

    This is when the kid should have inserted, “If I am not being detained or under arrest, I am leaving. I will not answer any more questions without my attorney.” This informs the LEO that you are serious and do not see them as the intimidation force they which to present themselves a

    Blink, first step back out of the pile of poop you just stepped in. Coming into this story with an indignant attitude while admitting you haven’t been following the case is the same as taking that poop covered foot and shoving it into your mouth.

    Read up, Blink:
    http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/12/15/justina/vnwzbbNdiodSD7WDTh6xZI/story.html
    Start with that one and then read the 9-10 additional articles written by Patricia Wen and Neil Swidey as well as the many articles here on The Blaze.

    Finally, blink, how would you react to persons in authority positions telling you that you were wrong (even though a doctor at Tuft’s diagnosed Justina), that your daughter was suffering from a psychotic issue, that they were going to keep and prevent you from removing your child, and they were to have you forcibly removed from the premises? Further, these so called authorities would refuse to contact your childs doctor, would remove your child from all medications prescribed by that doctor, even though your oldest daughter suffers from the same congenital disease but is reacting well to the treatment and care you provide?

    Go be a troll somewhere else until you educate yourself about the issue you wish to inject your ignorant two-cents into.

    The dispute has already broke out, adoptedlevite. There’s two questions that at hand here.

    The first is, should a civilian be allowed to parade around in a military uniform and claim to others that he is active duty?

    The second is, should the veterans have reacted to the imposter in the manner in which they did?

    The answer to both questions is no. A lie is still a lie regardless of intentions or ignorance. This kid was getting something (attention, respect, empathy, compassion, honor, etc..) he was not entitled to. His lie allowed him to steal the reward that is earned by a soldier for his hard work and sacrifice to his country.

    I would not have reacted using the language these young vets used to confront the imposter. I have reason to believe this was not the imposter’s first time wearing that uniform around campus. While the repeated offense displays a total lack of respect or understanding, the right thing to do would have been to pull this kid aside and calmly, yet firmly, instruct him on the regulations governing the use and wear of a military uniform. If the kid were then to tell me the truth regarding why he thought he was paying respect to his own military family members, I would have told him there are other ways to achieve his goal without dishonoring the military uniform he never earned.

    The vets tried to shame him and bring public ridicule upon the imposter instead of educating him about how insensitive and disrespectful his actions were.

    Having Valerie Jarrett call Lois Lerner would be the least of my problems to fear from her. The Iranian Jarrett, has many other more dangerous and nefarious connections in the muslim community as well as within the radical communist movement faction. Jarrett is a snake comfortable around other snakes. Most dangerous is that she hangs out with the ones who possess potent venom.

    I hope the malpractice law suit that is inevitable strips him of every penny he has as well as being ordered to forfeit his medical license in this country. Even more special would be for Dr. Jurriaan Peters to experience the luxury and friendships a fine penal institution has to offer. May he feel the violations imposed upon Justine and may he find himself bound to a wheelchair for the rest of his life from his warm stay in Hotel Butt-Rape!

    I understand what you’re saying, but there are a few or more lives in this sordid affair that do not deserve respect. The BCH doctor from the Netherlands, the BCH staff that supported this treatment, the DCF employees who have been perpetrating this felony, those within the legal system who have done nothing to help correct this injustice, the Governor of Massachusetts Patrick Duvall, and any other person who has been in a position to help free this girl yet failed to act to make it happen.

    I hope criminal and civil charges are filed against each and every individual as well as the institutions involved. May many of them find out what incarceration feels like as well as becoming financially bankrupt.

    And how do we conduct this war? If we engage them in any violent squirmish, the media will excoriate ALL conservatives as Tea Party Extremist. As such, the Obama/democrat plan will kick in to cry holy friggin’ war against all us right wing nuts jobs! They’ll scare every low information, American Idol watching, what is TMZ talkin’ about today, kind of American citizen (legal or otherwise) into a pantie-twisting frenzy to do something immediately to save them from the mean militia wearing the triangle hats.
    In my mind it’s going to have to be an all or nothing campaign. But how would we marshal or even coordinate enough of our warriors willing to sign their death warrants to make a big enough dent against the U.S. government for them to make a difference?
    Hell, I probably just got flagged by the NSA or one of the tattlers for Obama for even using MY ****** FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO SAY SOMETHING TO PISS OTHER PEOPLE OFF!!!

    For those of you saying the pastor made his own problem bigger buy returning to Iran, I ask you, would you not follow the direction of God? Would you not return to the country of your heritage and family members? I’m sure the pasture asked several times of God if this was, indeed, the best thing to do.

    Would you reject the protection of God if you were to walk into a flaming oven? How about if you were in a room with hungry lions, or in the belly of a giant fish? God will protect this pastor, just as the apostle Stephen was being stoned to death by Saul and the villagers. Stephen’s death put into motion a plan that helped change the world.

    Who am I to judge the motivations of this American pastor or the will of God?

  • March 13, 2014 at 4:15am

    Dushman Kush,

    In your mind, is it a crime to reject Allah and his prophet? Are you saying that it is acceptable to force someone to accept Allah? Does Iran have a law which allows Christians to meet privately in private homes? I know the answer. Do you? Is it a crime to be Christian in Iran? Again, I know the answer. Do you?

    Does Islam deleteriously affect the national security and the youth of the United States of America? Would it be acceptable, not withstanding the laws of the United States, but to only face the laws of God, for you or any Muslim to be detained, beaten, starved, and denied medical treatment by the United States because you won’t denounce your God?

    I look forward to your answers, though I believe I already know what you’re going to say. Who knows? Maybe you will surprise me?

  • March 11, 2014 at 4:59pm

    Why is it that a man in charge of a department, such as the CIA, can’t be a man and take responsibility on his own? Why would this closet muslim need to wait for Obama to tell him to stay or go if his department did break the law? I would not wish to embarrass myself or the department any longer, if the allegations turn out to be true and if it were me, and resign immediately without need for permission from the president. Granted, I would never work for Obama and I have a moral compass much stronger than that which Brennan has shown us in the past.

    Between 1989 and 2014 the Koch brothers and their company, Koch Industries, donated $18,139,488 in campaign contributions, ranking them 59th overall on the list created by Opensecrets.org. 8% of that went to democrats and 91% went to republicans.

    On the other hand, during that same time period SEIU donated $38,454,790 in campaign contribution which ranks 10th overall on the same list. 84% of those contributions went to democrats and 2% went to republican.
    So here we have one of the Koch brothers making a non-political donation of $100 million to a hospital and SEIU, which has donated more than twice as much in political donation as the Koch brothers between 1989-2014, who stands to profit off of the donation because it will gain new members to its rolls because the hospital will be able to afford hiring new employees, has the gall to protest the donation because of ideology.

    Really, is it any wonder conservatives need to band together to come of with a clear message that will resonate effectively with the individuals within the SEIU and others like them (5 of the top 10 campaign contributions from 1989-2014 were from unions). The message needs to pound home the shear benefits of conservatism and capitalism, while at the same time crush the mantra and spell the left’s magic has cast upon the low-information voter. We win on ideas, if the left can hear them.
