    I suspect it was that Mr. Obama simply had no planned speech and wanted it to be a relatively private event. Of course, seeing as how his administration has repeatedly violated American trust, it has become next to impossible to give the Obamas he benefit of the doubt.

    I’m taking a shot in the dark here, but what i think has been going on is not the Blaze, and by extension, Glenn Beck, fearing and silencing dissent. With regard to border relief, there have been some good arguments both for and against whether illegal aliens should be the recipients of private charity. Some of the related commentary was downright enlightening. Sadly, however, most of the comments were people vomiting insults and accusations, straying off the topic, or the same people recycling the same arguments over and over and over. By and large, the conversation was not moving forward. It had become polarized and moderation was needed faster than the moderators could moderate.

    I was disappointed at the shutdown of the comments section, but I blame the commenters, not the moderators this time.

    Can you elaborate on what gaps the home school kids have in science, and what they are coming with. If their gals are in evolutionary theory and man made climate change, that’s actually understandable. If they are coming to you with hard sciences: physics and chemistry, that would make sense too. Most homeschooling families prefer to stick with science that is provable, solid, and pertinent to thir own fields of study.

    I suppose it could be construed that the Blaze, and by extension, Glenn Beck, would silence dissent on the matter of border relief. At first I felt disappointed that the comments were shut off, but i suspect it has something to do with the fact that the discussion had dissolved into mostly hurling insults, accusations, and generally getting off the topic, instead of a constructive and civilized debate on whether illegal immigrants should be the recipients of private charity or not. A number of science websites tend to shut down the commentary when it comes to evolutionary science for similar reasons.

    Off the subject, interesting screen name. A character whose actions tends to be in line with his words. Generally interested in freedom, completely devoted to his lover and friends. Prone to excessive monologue-ing.

    Interestingly enough, that retoric doesn’t scare me anymore. Call it exposure therapy, but I’ve been hearing Islamist threats so long, that while I am certain they are a threat, it’s like car accidents in the news. Barely news worthy and so common that we just accept the risk as part of our every day life. Take reasonable precautions, but get on with life. There is only so much that can be done to stop bad people from doing bad things.

    I find the fastest lines and easiest checkout when I am not in a hurry. No, really. Litererally, when I am concerned and afraid of getting held up, that’s when the crazy coupon ladies show up. The force is with the crazies, when I am on the clock; but when I am relaxed and not in particular hurry to get somewhere, when I am not afraid of being late, the lines just open up. I try very hard to only shop when there is nothing else on the schedule.

    Take a pill? They call that caution?

    It feels like “take a pill” is the answer to everything these days. In pain? Take a pill. Have trouble in school? Take a pill. Feel sad? Take a pill. Want to avoid disease? Take a pill. What happend good judgment, making healthy choices, and exersizing self restraint? I know sometimes a pill is genuinly needed, but we are taking too many pills and not standing back to think about why we take the pills and what we could change so that drugs don’t have to be the answer.

    While we are conditioned to expect excessive force from law enforcement, this is over the top even for what we are expected to expect. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say there is more than a child pornagraphy charge going on here. They are lying for some reason, probably to prevent too much questioning from civilians and new agencies. We are expected to believe that all this is for a pervert, but they may be factoring in potential problems from a crime syndicate in the area.

    Death at the hands of “Desire” and “Flowers”. I know I’m being irreverent, but that there is a certain dark humor about murderers with such names.

    If I understand correctly, Glenn Beck is not taking the shipment directly to the camps. He’s taking it to the churches that have requested the teddy bears and soccer balls to the children. Obviously, if elected officials can not get in, I seriously doubt the media will get in.

    I have not yet heard of any significant effort from the oh so caring liberal left about relief efforts. As a matter of fact, it has been all but silent on the matter.

    Does this mean Iraq has decided to be honest with us? Why do I have doubt’s if they can be trusted. Either they lied in the past about the presence of nuclear material, or they are lying now about the presence of nuclear material.

    Years ago, I told my mother that Bush will either be revealed as a liar and a very bad man, or be vindicated in some respects and in the history books be written down as, if not a hero, at least not the monster the news made of him.

    Showing mercy and compassion is not enabling evil, as so many of you insinuate. Our government enabled this evil by leaving the borders open and making false promises.

    Teddy bears and soccer balls, showers and toilets, food and clothing. The effort is to relieve suffering, not reward lawbreaking. Glenn is not asking for us to congradulate Der Furor – Obama for attempting another Holocaust. He is asking for the opposite: to show that we, the American people are better human beings than Mr. Obama and his ilk.

    For good and ill, our laws forbid immediate deportations in most cases. The law demands that they .ake their case before a judge on an individual basis, and many of them will abuse it. That is reality. But if it were otherwise, the Romike family would have been thrown in jail shipped off to Germany the day after their paper work expired, instead of being allowed to plead their case. Either we support the laws that protect people of good character, or we do not. We can’t pick and choose winners and losers. We can only decided whether we will sustain the law or not.

    In the meanwhile, we can show some humanity toward children, 25% of whom are under 15 years of age, and clearly were trafficked here for purposes far more nefarious than seeking work and education.

    Glenn Beck is right. Our government baited them with false promises and misinformation, and our government is holding them in inhumane conditions. Our government behaved in a corrupt and underhanded manner, but WE are not our government. WE are better. WE have charity and compassion, even for invaders and enemies, and we especially show caring and concern for helpless children. The hope is that they will be sent back, but in the meanwhile, if we don’t offer our help, if we only turn our backs and condemn, then we are just as evil as the government officials and cartels that deceived them.

    I wonder if anyone has done a study on the circumstances surrounding children being forgotten in cars.

    If you are so absorbed in work, hobbies, and hon-family stuff that you could forget that your baby is with you, then you need to rethink you priorities. The shoe trick is fine if you really are the kind of person that is chronically or unrepentantly forgetful. I can’t forget my babies in the back seat for several reasons.

    1. Even when the baby falls asleep alone back there, I can still feel that he or she is there.
    2. As a family, we’ve made deep financial sacrifices so I can stay home with the kids. We would love to own a home, have a brand new car (or something newer than 10 years old), have two cars, a flat screen HD TV. I would love to have a washing machine and be debt free now. But the kids have our greatest priority and attention. Our mind set is child and family centric. No one gets left behind.
    3. And this is also a very effective way to remember there is a baby in the back seat: we have three kids. Almost never will all of them be asleep at the same time. It’s impossible to miss the fact that they are back there. If they even think I might forget the baby, it’s “Mom! Don’t forget Gideon! What about Gideon?! Can I ride in he basket with Gideon?!” They shut up until they are assured that most helpless of them is accounted for.

    Using social media stupidly. I’ve seen work contracts that mention not to complain or make derogatory remarks on social media about work. If that clause is in her contract, then this most definitely is not a first amendment issue. It’s a contract issue. As an employer, I would fire her too, especially if this is not a first time.

    Facebook is a public forum, no matter what your privacy settings. Don’t post or “like” anything that you wouldn’t do in front of children at a city park. If you want to complain and rant, that’s fine, but be prepared for reprisals.

    These are the ones that got caught. I shudder to think about what is coming with the invaders that make it past the boarder guard. Now we have refugee camps where we are detaining foreigners for an indefinite period of time. How many have died in the camps so far? In some way I can’t believe the inhumane treatment of our foreign prisoners. They would be better off if we dropped them back in Mexico. I wonder why we haven’t done that yet. Why have we not loaded them on trucks (outfitted appropriately for human transport, of course) and sent them back to their respective countries? Do their nations not want them back?

    “Blah blah blah, removal proceedings, blah blah blah, red tape, blah blah blah, beaureocracy, blah blah blah, don’t mean a thing I say, blah blah blah, republicans fault, blah blah”

    How about a clearer message, “All surviving foreign invaders will be shipped back to their home countries at our earliest convenience. We do not grant amnesty to those who sneak in illegally, no matter what their age or circumstances”.

    Parents have a responsibility to take reasonable measures to protect their children and monitor their online activities. An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The police are not supposed to be in the protection department. A good parent should be the one to notify the police if there is reasonable suspicion that a child is being solicited for sex.

  • June 27, 2014 at 9:37am

    I’m not sure how I feel about this. Were the predators targeted based on probable cause. Did someone report these people as having committed actual crimes? Or were they solicited online by the police with no warrents, no reporting, just a cop looking for a random sicko to arrest? The former is justified and how law enforcement is supposed to work, the other is unethical and should not be able to hold up in a court of law. It’s a noble idea, stopping bad people from doing bad things, but it sets a terrible precedent for arresting people before they actually committed any crime.

    I was raped repeatedly as a child, and that part of me wishes violent revenge on all pedophiles, especially the “One”; but I am also an adult and one who sustains the law and supports the US Constitution, which gives no authority for the government, without a warrent, to bait potential offenders and then arrest them before a crime was actually committed.

    EXCUSE ME?!!! I homeschool my children and I find your remark extremely offensive. I don’t abuse my children and neither does any other homeschool parent I know!

    What a narrow minded stupid remark, cometely divorced from reality!
