    I wouldn’t be surprised if this dishonorable vet and his equally dishonest wife are soon to be charged with felony fraud. Should the Homes for Our Troops organization have known better? Yes, absolutely. They owed it to all those who donated time, sweat, and money and it could have been done very simply with a medical screening. That being said, the crime is solely upon Justin and Josephine.
    As a disabled army veteran, I am sickened by this young man’s deceit and for how long he and his wife (if she is even his real wife) have lived fraudulent lives. There will be no sympathy given from me if they are convicted and get “free” housing for at least as many years as they have lived in their current home.

    I wanna know, did the “bully” got his parents to bring him to church? That’s where the glory is.

    Why are so many voting your comment down? You’re just stating a fact based on the law and the Constitution.
    I personally wish we still had the Bible in the classroom as a text book and study guide. So many valuable lessons about morality, problem solving, and believe it or not, finances. The great thing about the Bible is that there are so many other resources that provide in depth academic research into practically every chapter that the only way you could get more from it is to believe in God.
    Or not… but I’d prefer to know Him than to reject Him.

    It’s astonishing how many people misquote or attribute something in error as being from our First Amendment. Is it so hard to google it or carry a pocket Constitution to read what the Amendment says before spouting off something that makes them look foolish?
    My recommendation is to carry a pocket Bible and U.S. Constitution with you at all times. Read from them daily and challenge yourself to understand the meaning of those words. I also recommend reading The Federalist Papers and/or enrolling in a free online class on the Constitution from Hillsdale College. A tad more education never hurt anyone.

    So many of you just don’t get that Gavin McInnes is a satirist, comedian, and writer. Tamara Holder is a far left democrat apologist and Gavin pounced for comedic blood at the first opportunity. She was looking for an excuse to become offended in her self-righteous indignation and he shoveled a heaping of humility wrapped in a smile down her throat.
    Knowing Gavin and his style of humor, I couldn’t help but to bust out laughing at my TV tonight as I watched him knock the speech right out of her. Usually Tamara is screeching loudly over Sean and the other guests.
    Comeuppance have been justly served.

    cary1_2002: Historically speaking, Old_Navy is factually correct. There never has been a State or Nation called Palestine. The Nation of Israel was overtaken by the Romans as part of the Roman Empire. The land became desolate as a whole with the occasional town and city. The Romans referred to the land as Palestine as an insult to the Jewish leaders. Later, when muslims conquered Jerusalem, they never referred to the country as Palestine. As a matter of fact, nowhere in the Koran or Haddith does it mention the word Palestine or refer to the inhabitants of the Holy Land as palestinians.
    I would refer you to the following book that is researched, cited, and written by Dr. Randall Price titled, Unholy War: America, Israel and Radical Islam.
    You might be surprised by what you’ll learn.

    KJV Luke 23:34 – Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

    Calling something what it is not does not make it true.
    Calling the area of Israel which is predominately occupied by arabs who refer to themselves as palestinians to be the State of Palestine does not make it so.
    Ergo,
    Calling the civil union of two adults who happen to be of the same sex a marriage does not make it so.
    A lie is a lie no matter how you try to word it.

    Did you read the story and watch the video?

    These are protesters who are AGAINST illegal immigration. They are upset because they believe the congressman voted for a bill that funded amnesty, which it did not.

    And your selective service comment is so ridiculous since we have an all-volunteer military.

    Did you watch this video or even read the story?

    I’m not saying you don’t have some valid questions but your comments have nothing to do with this story. What I am saying is that if you want to have your questions taken seriously you should really avoid coming across as the crazy person yelling that the sky is falling.

    I’m gonna have to agree with blink on this point. When we come to understand that we all live in a “choices and consequences” society then it makes it clear that committing a pedophilic act of horror should not be punished by death. If we chose to put to death all convicted pedophiles, the consequences would most assuredly result in an increase in the number of victims being killed in the process. It is said that the criminal mind, in general, lacks the ability to empathize with their victims. This lack of empathy makes it easier for the criminal to choose murder to eliminate a witness. Of course, having murdering their victims, if caught and convicted, they would now be eligible for the death penalty. However, we all know that set-up is such a joke…unless you’re convicted in Texas.

    The reason waterboarding. Is not torture is quite simple. The procedure.
    There must be a physician present.
    The subject must be explained what is going to happen, how it will feel, and how long the session will last.
    The water has to be a specific temperature. The table the subject is on must be elevated off the ground and be able to be tilted up and down.
    There must be at a minimum, a specified number of people in the room.

    If you read the report on Franken-Feinstein’s Senate website you’ll see a whole list of steps that were directed for this procedure to be conducted under the advise of legal counsel.

    Personally, I am surprised that waterboarding under these conditions even worked. After a few attempts I would think most terrorists, who prepare and train to be tortured, would see any further attempts as being nothing more than extremely uncomfortable and time consuming.

    No physical trauma to nerves, body tissue, bone, or bodily fluids takes place with waterboarding. You are physiologically and physically the same as before a session.

    Once you understand that methods, such as waterboarding, serve only two purposes you can easily beat the exercise.

    Choices = Consequences… That’s it.

    jgrant and TheBlaze,

    I think this website is in the final stages of its last hoorah with me. I am so tired of my screen locking up because of so much annoying advertisement. I’m not against advertisement, but the auto-load videos that start to blare out somewhere on the page infuriate me.

    I’m tired of it. I’m tired of going with google, then to firefox, then back to google again. Slow page loads are annoying also. Bottom line is its just not worth the haste of reading The Blaze stories when I can read the same stories elsewhere without all the advertisements and headaches.

    Sorry The Blaze, you had your chance(s)!

    Fair market value can not be achieved due to government intervention in the form of regulations that restrict who can purchase the item, taxation which inhibits opportunity, or to simply restrict the sale and require the item to be housed at a government museum.
    With interference like that how could you ever hope to receive fair market value?
    With regard to your assertion that all items (or even a majority), are put out on display for public viewing… I suggest you look up the Smithsonian on Google and read how much is NEVER put on display.

    I have posted before that:
    1. Any organizer of a gun show must get a permit when they lease/rent/utilize government property such as community centers, meeting halls, fairground facilities, parks, convention centers, and sports arenas.
    2. The permit lists what kind of activity can and can not be permitted and if any specific laws need to be followed (an example would be like a temporary liquor license for a high school reunion in the town community center).
    3. Most jurisdictions have laws outlining what is required of those wishing to sell firearms on said premises. Ex. All dealers must submit a current and valid copy of their Federal Firearms License (FFL) to be kept under control by the organizer and subject to inspection by LE.
    4. In order to sell firearms as a dealer with a FFL, it is a requirement that all purchasers must of have a background check approved BEFORE they are allowed to take the firearm.
    5. Most jurisdictions have laws making it illegal to sell or purchase firearms outside of controlled facilities. You can be arrested for buying or selling a firearm in the parking lot.
    6. Most organizers are either require to, or choose to, hire off-duty LEO to work as security at a gun show event.

    In other words, there are no private sales of firearms at gun shows that have a background check loop hole.
    Local governments and common sense work. Federal intervention is a waste of tax payer money.

    I’m equally frustrated as the story of gun-show loopholes continue to persist. I have posted before that:

    With all due respect, Michele, what would constitute hate speech or racism when discussing Bloomberg’s Thanksgiving attempt to manipulate the gun debate between family members?

    Example: “Uncle Leo is such a racist. He carries a black Desert Eagle made by an Israeli company!”

    While I appreciate your advice, it just seems out of place for this topic.

    Regardless, I do wish you and yours many blessings in the future as we reflect upon the many blessings we’ve received in the past. God bless you all!

    Overall, the left spent $10.smillion on the yes for I594 campaign. Unfortunately, the no on I594 campaign spent only 6% of the money of what the libs spent.

    Bottom lines, those of us in the State of Washington have been screwed by the left and lied to repeatedly even in the face of hard facts!

    In the words of President George W. Bush, “I hear you, the people hear you, and soon those that did this will hear from all of us!”

    May God save their wretched souls!

    Whether it’s an exhibit hall at a county’s fairground, a city or town’s community center building, or a large sports arena the state and local municipalities already have existing law criminalizing the purchase and/or sale of firearms upon the property where said gun shows are held.

    Would it surprise you to know that off-duty law enforcement officers are hired by the promoter for every show to patrol the premises, both inside AND out? If these gun shows were a hot bed of kitchen table, mom and pop gun sales, why would the promoter hire officers to expose this “nonexistent” criminal underbelly of parking lot sales?

    Having pointed out the facts and laws surrounding the operation of a legal gun show, we in this state were exposed to an endless stream of campaign commercials featuring former Bellingham Police chief Don Pierce. He recited a lie to every one of the points I previously covered. Don’t take my word for it. Read about it here, http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/11/dean-weingarten/how-the-i-594-gun-control-initiative-passed-in-washington-state/ .

    Our state was saturated with money supporting gun control…er… I mean, Uniform Background Checks (UBC). There was more than $5 million donated from Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer, Paul Allen, and Nick Hanauer alone!
