As a Soldier who deployed, I felt completely understood by Eminem’s choice of songs for the concert. Death, despair, betrayal (by our so call iraqi/afghani partners) and our political leaders, all these represent our lives as Soldiers down range. During times of intensity and facing evil people who want to take your life, the F-word is just part of your vocabulary to try to describe the indescribable. If you paid attention to the video, a lot of service members were there, singing along, because they understand what he was singing about. Sadly, most of the WWII veterans are dead. We veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan face a greater level of isolation because we all volunteered and many of us return to places where there are no other veterans of our generation who we can talk to who understand our demons.

Well you obviously ignorant person, maybe the woman was in a bra store to buy bras. Hmm…the whole ribcage spread and glands full of milk tends to change your size. And for those idiots who think that Victoria’s Secret doesn’t make post-baby bras, they were the only store where I could find a bra that worked well until my second baby made me larger than their sizes. And yes, when you are trying to care for your suddenly hungry baby, rudeness from other people becomes super irritating. If the lady was so selfish, she would have just sat down in the corner to feed her kid after that.

Actually, I criticize this because she is a top blogger and the wife of a famous person who is adding to the pressure put on young women these days by all of the airbrushed skinny people portrayed as the norm. Very few women can have a healthy pregnancy with adequate nutrition for their baby and look like that 4 days later. A few can, but our bodies are meant to carry a little extra while we breastfeed. Also, the level of sleep deprivation varies based on your baby, which makes a huge difference in weight loss efforts. So yes, good for her, but she should be more thoughtful of her effect on young women BECAUSE she has a platform and she knows it.

@firearm. How is it that you are such a jerk? There would be no sex industry without the pervert consumers. It is amazing how you are attacking women who made the difficult choice to break free from a lifestyle of no self-worth and to share publicly the damage done by this “harmless” industry. How about some condemnation for a culture that is so oversexed that I don’t want my children to see the commercials on prime time TV. How about some condemnation for the people who take pleasure in watching porn? How about some criminal prosecution for the people who condition women and break down their inhibitions and sense of value to get them into the porn industry? I am really tired of the hypocrisy! These women are finally making a good choice. I guess you must need to feel better about all of your bad choices in life by being a bigot toward people recovering from bad choices that are “worse” than yours. Maybe you have a secret porn addiction that fueled your low view of women.
It is a sidewalk through an open air memorial. Try looking it up on Google earth before saying something so dumb.

The mother specifically said the child would tear a cover off anyway. I have breastfed with a cover many times, but some children ARE more strong-willed and hate them. This lady seems to have more than one child if she is breastfeeding in the play area. Maybe if more parents talked to their little ones about body parts in an appropriate way instead of letting commercials and magazine displays define what a woman’s breasts are for, those parents wouldn’t have such a problem with a woman breastfeeding. Even without a cover, the baby’s head and the mother’s shirt pretty much cover everything. I have gotten plenty of looks even while wearing a cover. And I would be more than happy to accept free babysitting from those giving the rude looks so I could run errands by myself in peace.

Please, we have to UNDERSTAND the reason and purpose of the Intelligence Community methods. Please, use your common sense and realize that stopping the funding for the NSA isn’t going to resolve anything. The President and other radicals will use the infrastructure in whichever way they please. How about this simple concept, first do what was done to Richard Nixon (Barack Obama have done worst and still the President), then enforce the laws and policies that are in place against those people within the Executive Power and the very few employees within the NSA that broke the law (by doing what somebody in a higher position told them to do, by the way, not an excuse to break the LAW) to make sure that they pay for their crime. If we don’t enforce the law against those that think that are above the law (the President and all personnel within the Executive Power) noting will be done.

Stop just reading and start researching the truth. First, we all need to understand the purposes of the Intelligence Community and their methods, and then come up with an intelligent comment about this subject, this subject is serious.
July 25, 2013 at 10:12pm
To “He_IS_RISEN” and everybody else that may want to keep discussing the subject, the Congresswoman was telling the truth. If you work in the Intelligence Community you should know that what she said is true.
July 25, 2013 at 10:05pm
To Mr. Beck and the crew (Pat & Stu) I love your show and opinion, always in the right track, but this time you guys are way off. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was speaking absolute truth. Her knowledge and competences about the subjects associated with the Intelligence Community is above and beyond reproach. Your statement about what the DoD employees are supposedly doing are offensive and completely untruth. Every DoD professional is subject to the Constitution and the Law of the Land, meaning that if any person working for the NSA do anything against the Bill of Rights and the Constitution they could end up in jail or worst. Mrs Bachmann’s explanation of what NSA do is the best Unclassified way to tell the people of the United States exactly what the need to know about what the NSA do. I will challenge you or anyone else on the subject associated to the Intelligence Community. I will challenge you or anyone else to educate yourself about the subject of Foreign Intelligence, anybody could be a whistle blower and still be off on what they are telling you. Please!!!, before you come out and say all the things that you said, please Mr. Beck (you should know better, you should never make conclusions about something that you may know LITTLE about, you are playing in the hands of those that want to destroy the country) do your research about the subject and make sure that you know what you are talking about. I challenge everybody else in the subject too.
Please, we have to UNDERSTAND the reason and purpose of the Intelligence Community methods. Please, use your common sense and realize that stopping the funding for the NSA isn't going to resolve anything. The President and other radicals will use the infrastructure in whichever way they please. How about this simple concept, first do what was done to Richard Nixon (Barack Obama have done worst and still the President), then enforce the laws and policies that are in place against those people within the Executive Power and the very few employees within the NSA that broke the law (by doing what somebody in a higher position told them to do, by the way, not an excuse to break the LAW) to make sure that they pay for their crime.

You do realize the Prism program collects data of our internet use, aren't you? Are you aware the NSA has verified that? For some reason they divert attention to the phone records, but I find their collection of internet data more disturbing. There are business records, medical records, private chats and emails, private reservations, etc., etc., all transmitted via the internet. They claim they are storing photos and videos. I'm sorry but this is improper search and seizure and is unconstitutional. I don't care what foreign intelligence they're after. Get a legal warrant. If this continues, it will not be foreign terrorists they will need to worry about and it's the old time politicians like Buchanan and McCain who will take a great fall, along with the democrats. You may choose to support Buchanan and call her beyond reproach, but I can't give you any credibility. Would you care to give your qualifications to make that statement?
If YOU truly believe and respect and appreciate the WORDS of your government, then you are either a fool, an idiot, or both.
Take another hit -- the grape Kool-Aid is one of the best.
Replace Buchanan with Bachman. Had a senior moment.
sorry, Bachmann was dead wrong on the NSA, I have to agree with the guys.

@CapnCrumbles32 “Examine the lifestyle and behaviors of someone you are receiving advice from.” Pat Robertson makes very unbiblical statements. This controversy is just the latest. Pat’s life doesn’t stand up under scrutiny.
The headline IS accurate. Pat’s statement “males have a tendency to wander a little bit” followed by the idea that women should control this by their behavior at home is a blanket one that shows a total lack of biblical thinking. BOTH men and women are flawed and tempted to sin. NEITHER gender gets an excuse from the Bible or from God.
Pat disregards the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation. Yes, she should forgive her husband, not accept his behavior. He needs to take steps to rebuild the trust he threw away. Forgiveness is an act of the will by a person who has been wronged, totally independent of whether the one who does wrong ever asks for forgiveness. In contrast, relationship rebuilding takes two people who recognize underlying issues and take steps to fix the real problems. This lady’s final sentence shows a desire to “get on with our lives”. Is that from her, or is it a weapon of her husband to demand she accept his wrong actions?
The Blaze did not take something “‘harmless” and make it a big deal. Pat’s statement is totally against what God says about marriage. You think the Blaze is bad? Read the New Testament and see what Jesus said about people who claim to represent God but teach things contrary to His word.

I don’t understand how asylum was a stretch in the first place. Being forced to violate your religious convictions or lose your children is a pretty clear example of persecution.

These families gave up the right to keep their “private” business private when they decided to support their SEAL family members while those SEALs were still alive. Ever heard of security clearance investigations? Ever heard of how families lives are at risk when current politicians open their big mouths and out the identities of SEAL team members? These family members are carrying on the defense of our country that their SEALs gave their lives to defend. They have already sacrificed so much that they deserve to have their views treated with respect. So sad that the families were upset by any of the funeral arrangements! Read the article. According to the lawyer, this imam was simply the last straw.

Your comment shows a lack of understanding of how the military functions. Like many who have commented, you did not mention that one of the examples specifically mentioned a chaplain. Mr. Weinstein obviously does know the difference between a general officer and the chaplaincy. Chaplains, who are all officers, are governed by the doctrine of the denomination that sponsors them. They have the right to preach accordingly, otherwise no soldier could actually worship according to their beliefs.
If Mr. Weinstein was sincere, he would be going after Major Nidal Hassan, who is in open violation of Army grooming regulations by wearing a beard. Many other Muslim service members abide by the grooming standards. Pardon me if I am a little skeptical of how equally these “proselytizing” standards will be applied. Oh wait, that is because the current standards already are not.

Puerto Ricans are citizens. Do your research before lumping all brown skinned people together. Evil is a universal human problem. That is why justice is supposed to be blind, as in equally applied to everyone.

Your ignorant remarks about poor people are classist and wrong. I grew up dirt poor. Poor as in the utilities got shut off and we rarely could afford to eat meat. This lawless behavior is a minority problem. More specifically, a black minority problem in the United States. Not because blacks are somehow inferior, but because liberal welfare policies starting with the Great Society have decimated the family unit in black communities. Welfare has created an attitude of entitlement. Liberal policies keep the black kids with a desire to learn and their black single parents who actually care trapped in these schools.
I grew up in just such a neighborhood. I got a great education because my mom homeschooled me rather than see me in danger at school. Homeschooling is not an option for poor single parents. I did well in college and the Military because my parents taught me responsibility and respect. Black children are fed a poisonous diet of “everybody is against you” and therefore automatically attribute the normal difficulties of life to racism. Most have no family or cultural unit to model the kinds of manners and attitudes required to succeed in the business world.
My husband is a minority. He gets tired of other members of that group thinking he will favor them and change the standards at work for them. A categorical problem exists in our society. Thinking the problem is an inherent part of an ethnic group and unchangeable is racist. Stating present reality isn’t.

Your comments and some of the responses to them made me think about the gender difference in how to respond. As a mother of small children, any person who breaks into my house with my car and toddler car seat visible in my driveway will be shot. Yes it is a horrible position to be in. I hope I never have to make that kind of move. However, if someone chooses to break into my house, they already made the decision to put me in danger. I am not going to wait to see if they are “just” a burglar or are a rapist. I don’t really care about the laws. I will accept the consequences of protecting myself and my children. The law hasn’t done much to protect women, especially victims of rape and domestic violence. Thanks, but I will take care of myself and let the police take care of the body.

She showed what an idiot she is. Hello, black is the absence of light in the color world. That makes black the perfect color to show absences of knowledge in a piece of art. The way this woman treated these kids shows her for what she really is, a bully. Color is not really the issue at all.

God had some pretty strong words for those who like to put themselves in His place and judge others. Mental illness is a complex problem. Sometimes it springs from behavioral and spiritual choices. However, sometimes it is simply a result of the reality that the human brain has fallen under the curse of sin that began with Adam and Eve. How about we leave the judging to the only just Judge and start obeying the hard command to love sinners without loving sin.

Third Acorn, you are a fool. If the tiring demands of an unborn baby on a mother’s body are sufficient reason to kill the child, I should definitely be permitted to murder my toddler. There are a lot of people that make my life unpleasant. If I can’t get away from them without killing them, according to your logic I should be able to do so. The one point of debate that matters and thus the one that abortion supporters refuse to address is “when is the baby a human being?”. It is way too ugly to admit the willingness to kill for the sake of making one’s own life easier.
