Mormons have this tier thing about Heaven and Government, like, Good, Better, Best. for example, Terrestrial vs. Celestial, or A government of Judges vs. a Wise and Divinely inspired king. For children, parents are basically the same thing. While two good parents, male and female is the best combination, I know a great deal many latch key kids in one parent homes who would be better off with two loving parents, even if they were the same sex, rather than one parent who’s love was questionable and never around, or abusive.
Same sex parents can be good or bad influences, but the benefit of the second same sex parent is going to be less because of the overlap of skill sets and wisdom. You might be lucky to consider it 1.5 parents, but you could never consider it the full benefit of both. Despite that, as a latchkey kid myself who grew up in a shattered home, I can say I’d rather have two parents of whatever sex than my default mommy-daddy Mr. Cable TV.

There does need to be a litigation and home defense system in place to protect the rights of people who can be harassed. Disturbing the Peace, Noise Ordinances, and re-institution of some kind of privacy standards is more necessary than ever. Pretending only law abiding citizens exist and that there’s no such thing as organized crime doing things like scouting houses for potential car theft or robbery or kidnapping… Frankly if its not Delivering Pizzas and Textbooks, I would prefer the right to treat it as a trespasser for getting too close to my front door, new car, or whatever.
I'm sure there will be an EMP-gun revolution. Point and shoot drones out of your property and have a 'no fly zone' sign up. EMP-guns will be subject to abuse and thereby banned in the future.
By the way, I can already see the future headlines: "Pizza delivered to homes roof". Homes will have to be modernized from the UAV revolution to provide easier access to the roof. I can already see the handwriting on the legislation.

the uses they permit are the ones I wanted illegal. “Aerial photography and mapping, crop monitoring, and inspections of cell towers, bridges and other tall structures.” just sounds like 1984 and voyeurism. Meanwhile, things we might actually like, such as rapid distribution of tiny (books) amazon deliveries and Delivery (pizza/chinese/sandwiches) is what’s actually being inhibited.
Although, truth be told, these things are a dangerous weapon of hackers, serial killers, and terrorists, as any legit bot can be hacked, pick up a bomb, and deliver it to someone’s doorstep. It could even be made to deliver an “expected package” swapped with a bomb inside. At the very least you could see thieves taking people’s deliveries, swapping out delivery boxes with rocks, and Fraternity Pranks delivering gift rapped refuse or feces.

Canada is still owned by Great Britain, it is a giant territory pretending to be a country, like Australia and New Zealand. You merely need look at their currency and mint to see the Queen’s face every year. People who live under a Monarchy and have a local Prime Minister have no more concept of American Liberty than a dog has of what’s written on a News Paper.

it’s complicated and the man took a good argument and turned it into excrement. 1. there are veterans who have fought for freedoms of people in general, they exist in every generation, not just the Greatest. That’s because we are typically in 170+ different places on any given day – someone somewhere is being a hero, even if the bulk of the rest are just bored playing online video games or re-enacting sock scenes from Jar Head. It is true that since at least the Cotton/slave period, corporations like the East India Trading company or Halliburton have put lives at risk not for freedom or liberty, but for greed and power struggles. Same thing with communist revolutions – mostly puppets of wealthy special interest groups. But here’s the real issue: Gene Roddenberry claimed an advanced civilization was all about preventing war, not cool toys for fighting it. Old Gene was wrong.
Any country that is insufficiently capable of defending itself with a standing army or equivalent (Navy, Air, Cyber, Space, etc.) will be occupied by another military or marauder force with less scruples. Therefore, on a daily basis, the show of military power and the occasional skirmish is necessary for preserving the liberties and freedoms at home. Veterans do however, have a responsibility after their commissions to maintain those freedoms in the political arena, and that failing, the instructions are in the Declaration of Independence.
Non sequitar. You did not show how a daily show of military power preserves freedom. The founders certainly did not think that was the case. Would the government quartering troops in your home also preserve your freedom?

What this map really shows is that America is mostly concerned about Immigration, with Economic issues second, and Healthcare in third place. Women’s issues is almost nonexistent.

This reminds me of two things: 1. a tick bite that causes an allergy to red meat, and 2. the side effects of risperdal and certain other antipsychotics in patients inhibiting the desire of some patients to eat, drink, or do much of anything. It is also possible he has developed an allergy to a series of chemicals that his family uses in abundance in their cooking, and that the water quality may be very low. Otherwise it sounds a lot like stomach flu, where it is very difficult to keep anything down.

You know, I bet it cost more than $86,000 to arrange for this SWAT raid on this old man, counting the cost of an otherwise useless military vehicle, and the salary of all those militarized police with their training, equipment, and fuel costs, not to mention legal fees. They could have just waited for him to die of old age.
Authorities sanctioning events like this are begging for Civil War.
That is what they want. They believe they can control people if and when martial law is implemented. They actually believe most will be loyal. It's almost laughable if it wasn't so tragic.

Don’t tell the Malthus followers that.. would be population controllers always blame “excess population” on everything.

Agreed, he looks tribal, and looks like he’s posing for hunting; not sure if he’s connected to a tribe or not, but he looks American by NorthWest Standards

ok, so i read these tweets and zoomed in on the emoticons to get the gist of what happened (i dont use twitter) and this is what I get out of it: 3 people, a friend, a girl, and a boy; a girl who is possibly pregnant, and then what appears to be an exchange of words and what really sounds like a friend sleeping with his girlfriend. Apparently some kind of humiliating conversation made the shooter feel even worse, and then the shooting happened hours later.
If I am not misreading these events, it is only this 20th-21st century political correctness that makes this behavior appear as anything but normal. This is tragic, and the students are young, but love triangles have been killing teenagers and adults since the stone age. I hate to break it to you all, but this is NORMAL. Helen of Troy? Romeo and Juliet? Old Testament Adultery rules? Come on people. Sleeping with another “man’s” woman has been punishable by Death for a lot longer than it’s been illegal. Right or Wrong, this has nothing to do with Gun Control, Video Games, or someone off their Meds. This is old school Romance, Fornication, and Revenge Murder/Suicide.
the kid was a native American. I live in the area. We have a lot of NA people/kids/students…but the split remains between the different cultures. White kids never accept the Indian kids UNLESS they are good at sports or such. THEN after graduation the relationships are severed. I’ve seen it happen time and time again.
We had a white girlfriend whose parents refused a prom date with a NA and he was crushed after having rented the tux, bought the flowers and arranged a dinner out.... He acted out (for that era) and it was obvious why/how it all came to be. My little group was so angry at the girl and her parents we put her out of our circle. She was miserable with the arranged date by her parents. A cousin…while Jeff arrived drunk and acting out.
A friend had Jaylen as a student. He was a Lummi.
What a needless loss.
Yes murder in this way has been going on for a long time but there was a time when it didn't in the USA, so what changed? This I believe is what folks are trying to communicate to folks like you here at the blaze. Schools in the USA used to have gun ranges in their basements for the boys who under a qualified teacher would take target practice, we even had archery at my highschool with real arrows and no one went crazy...what changed? Farmers sent their sons to school and their sons never took the family shotgun down off the wall to murder his classmates...so what changed?
Your post deserves to be post of the year.. You are right on the money. But there is a cause of this rampant problem we now have with people killing each other. It is the leftist society where most of their lives they can do nothing wrong according to the leftists except wanting freedom.
Freedom = guns, right to our opinions without nanny Government calling it hate, and anything protected in the Constitution. Freedom is scary to the left as it takes away their IMPOTENT authority. if anyone has doubts about political IMPOTENCY see the White House today...

The democrats and liberals control the education system. What that means is they control what young children grow up thinking. The liberals traditionally educate children to grow up hating the authority of the conservative power bloc. However, they also train them to believe voting for radical reformation of the government is the right thing to do – being revolutionary is the correct choice. The problem is Obamacare is an institution of an old grey haired man in the white house who has been there for longer than anyone has been in high school. That stability of office means Obama is the definition of authority the millennial grew up resenting and Obamacare might as well be “authoritarian conservative care” to these kids, who grew up hating Microsoft programs and other mainstream failures of technology. The kids are old enough now to realize Obamacare costs them money (money they don’t have because “the man” – Obama screwed their employment opportunities), and it’s no longer “new” and revolutionary. So it sucks.

I think this is a good example of double standards. If it were a cop who shot the dog the story would only appear in the back pages of some conspiracy site and the shooter wouldn’t be charged with anything. A facebook page decrying them would never happen and if it did would be shut down as harassing a police officer.I find it disgusting that an animal only has rights when a civilian kills them, but when authorities kill them, hey – who cares right?
Um, there have been lots of articles right here on TheBlaze about cops shooting dogs.

in case you all haven’t noticed, all the Funding for Tech and Education for Youth is going to promoting the elimination of Freedom and American values. What we need to do, what the BLAZE needs to do among others, is start funding Technology and Educational programs that promote American values and Freedom.
You can sell American patriotic goods all day, but the bad guys are giving away cash prizes and scholarships to the next generation that will mock your patriotism and never buy your goods. You are losing this culture war. It’s time you change your strategy before your grandchildren pay for your short sightedness.

California is a STATE run by the POLICE. If you ever wonder what a Police State looks like, there ya go. Orwell 30 years off the mark, but definitely Orwell. If you support fragmentation of California into small states, their massive voting block will be divided down and some parts that prefer liberty can speak up in places like Northern California or “Jefferson”.

right now the social security system and the welfare system and the educational and loan systems are designed to promote single non married status. If the Conservatives, Tea Party, and Christians want to improve marriage, they will have to create economic incentives that rival the welfare state for Married couples. They will have to make it competitive. In New York, I’ve heard the divorce rate is lower because rent is too high for people to afford to live alone. This is callous, but it is fact. When you have 310+ million people, ideology is the carriage being pulled by the horse of economic motivation. Not the other way around.
There are other pieces to the puzzle, as well. 2015 healthcare costs for a married family of 5 will be 300% higher under the major private employer contracts.
This is specifically de-incentivizing private health insurance for families, while at the same time lowering premium costs for singles in the same system. Keep in mind, the metrics only show a larger pool of singles, that have in the past been used to pseudo-subsidize the family plans.
Whether intentional or not, this is tantamount to social de-engineering of the American family.
The socalled "transhumanism" of Mormons is where you are still a child of God that grows up to be just like him.
Mormons just believe that growing up is part of their divine journey with Jesus leading the way.
This is definitely not the same as what Liberals/Illuminati promote, which is closer to Panentheism (Religion behind Communism).
Mormons will never betray Jesus.

I think its valid as long as you don’t get to a Man vs. Food level of intake. Pro Athletes use between 4000 and 12000 calories during training. People who want calorie restrictions are either living in air conditioned office space or want a weak and feeble populous unable to present resistance.

Washington never chopped down a cherry tree but our kids are more honest for the story.
Anyone remember this?
““A fellow veteran contacted me concerning a new and disturbing development. He had been utilizing a Mormon cannery near his home to purchase bulk food supplies. The man that manages the facility relayed to him that federal agents had visited the facility and demanded a list of individuals that had been purchasing bulk food. The manager informed the agents that the facility kept no such records and that all transactions were conducted on a cash-and-carry basis. The agents pressed for any record of personal checks, credit card transactions, etc., but the manager could provide no such record. The agents appeared to become very agitated and after several minutes of questioning finally left with no information”
When you add this to the fact of the “See something, say something” propaganda, and the actual “reward” for “illegal firearms” (it looked like an ‘assault weapon’?) and California’s AB 1014 “confiscation based on ACCUSATION”. The specifics of this $500 story are error laden, but the overall Truth is actually incredibly similar and in many ways WORSE.
