    1 – A travel ban should happen in the US, as in many of the world’s rational countries. 2 – The American people strongly favor this logical approach. 3 – The basis for not instituting such a ban is hogwash.

    It’s the people NOT speaking up about this simple issue that are silly. Ted Cruz is about as “silly” as hearings about why four Americans were left to die.

    They fly back together, so as not to put others at risk, and enter quarantine for 21 days upon their return. Obviously. Better, of course, they quarantine in-country together and then return together without intermediate contact with anyone potentially exposed. These are simple issues.

    Finally, someone of note says what every thinking person has believed since the Administration first rolled out these moronic claims.

    “I’m writing this staring at the mess the police left for me”

    I am curious if she thought the police would scrub the blood off the floor, perform a little carpentry to repair the door, what?

    Don’t make things up. “Shoot on sight” is a very specific order that is completely different from “authorized to shoot if he doesn’t surrender.”

    Sure, we need the next iPhone of guns…. just ask Jennifer Lawrence.

    Surely chapter leaders are elected by chapter member. Is it not reasonable to think chapters unlikely to elect non-Christian leaders for their Christian-based organization? This entire issue is moronic.

    Ironic that Reed always harps on the Koch brothers, but has no problem with Steyer, Bloomberg, Eychanger, Simons, Stryker, and those Democrat donors that hide their massive contributions. To put this in perspective, OpenSecrets says Tom Steyer’s 2014 federal level contributions tally over $20M, 100% to the D, and he is the #1 individual donor. David Koch makes that list at #83 with $412K. Even ADDED WITH the Koch Industries $2.9M (ranked #35 in organizational contributors), the Koch’s total contributions a 16% of Tom Steyer… who has promised to hit $100M, by the way.

    The Democrats don’t complain, of course, about the massive union contributions. As organizational contributors:
    Carpenters, #3
    SEUI, #4
    City of NY, #5
    AFT, #10
    AFL-CIO, #12
    State/County/Muni Workers. #14
    Pipefitters, #15
    Electrical Workers, #16
    Steelworkers, #18
    OEU, #19

    That is HALF of the top 20 political contributors… all unions donating almost entirely to Democrats. Why isn’t this an issue, Harry?

    The cops “did” or “didn’t” realize the perp was holding an Airsoft gun?

    If you’re going to carry a firearm, you have to know the law. You must realize that many locations and states unconstitutionally limit your right to keep and bear arms in common use as a means to defend yourself and others. You should know that some people are so blindly anti-gun that they will harass you endlessly if your reveal to them that you choose to exercise this constitutionally protected right. If you break the law related to your choice, you should expect the most harsh response possible in some places, completely devoid of logic and rational thought.

    Anyone who doesn’t get what Dawkins is saying is an absolute moron. Person A accosts person B with a knife, and cut them… a 1″ slice on their forearm. Person C accosts person D with a knife, and cuts them… burying the blade through their arm. Both are “assault with a deadly weapon (knife)” but you’re going to tell me the second isn’t worse than the first? Child molestation includes both fondling and forced penetration. One isn’t worse than the other? Some people are simply out to be offended, or out to find fault with someone.

    In case it’s not obvious to you and everyone else, they’re not. It’s the firearm owner’s responsibility to know and follow all applicable laws, and everyone that’s going to own a gun should be fully aware of that.

    I’ll go a step further. I do NOT want gun regulation taken to a national level. I like in a relatively gun-friendly state, and I have no interest in subjecting my ownership and use of firearms to the voting powers of legislators from the liberal coasts.

    “most of the more than 57,000 unaccompanied kids who’ve arrived since October”

    Get with it, Blaze. These are NOT “kids.” They are OTM “unaccompanied minors,” meaning individuals under the age of 18 not in the presence of their legal parent or guardian. The majority are bound to be 13-17 and mostly gang members, but of course nothing but staged pictures and no data is being provided about their ages. Using a word that conjures up images of little 8 year old Sally playing with Border Bustin Barbie is simply inaccurate. When is the last time you look at a 17 year old MS-13 member with his face covered in gang ink and thought, “what a cute kid!”?

    Nothing wrong with M&M’s decision here, although they should make it and stand behind it. Those citing the gay wedding cake debacle should realize that forcing the baker to accept business against his values is just as wrong as doing the same to Mars. At least the cake case involved a protected class… there absolutely no justification to complain about Mars’ right to make this decision.

    You have some problem with THAT website? You must have a really challenging time browsing the web.

    Having previously had guns pointed at you does not justify firing wildly at those individuals when they’re outside your store, fleeing, and no longer a deadly threat. Firing wild shots at fleeing perps is exactly the sort of behavior that proves someone shouldn’t have a firearm.

    Most people do not consider all Caucasians “white.” What percentage of Google’s workforce is Asian? What percentage of their “white” workforce descends from Caucasians from India and Pakistan?

    Are you aware that nearly every sort of common electrical component — that is, most types of resistors, capacitors, diodes, and so forth — are not available made anywhere except China? That means every electrical device, from pacemakers to defibrillators, are at least in part made in China. Good luck with your policy.

    Am I missing something? They both HAD the money to “pay” to go to the bathroom and chose not to do so, because they wanted goodies instead. You ask me, it’s a good lesson in the wise use of one’s own resources. If you don’t learn this lesson you age into that person who has the platinum smart phone plan but can’t make bills at the end of the month. This woman can teach my kids any time.

    Bound to be more to this story than a parking spot. Both participants in the argument just happen to be carrying, doubtless illegally?
