    Brats glorifying a suicide. Idiot principal thinks it merits police intervention. Just mark them absent from class and ignore them, problem solved.

    I found the music to be a little distracting, but overall very informative and well constructed. I wish more Common Core proponents had the balls to offer their side of the debate, but I guess being fundamentally wrong is not exactly good for generating courage in one’s convictions.

    Is that allegory even known in the Islamic world? Or will it just be destroyed as another Christian artifact and an affront to Islam? Either way, it seems a waste of tax payer dollars.

    My mother taught me from a very young age to always were the helmet, boots, leathers, gloves. Having survived a motorcycle accident herself she definitely advocates wearing the safety gear. I’m not so sure an inflatable vest is the thing for motorcycle accidents. It may let you get through bouncing along the road a bit, but I think skidding, sharp objects, and impacts might be the more pressing concerns in the average motorcycle accident. The same tech that keeps soldiers and police might have an application for motorcycle accidents that is more practical and effective.

    Wow. Kids know how to commit career suicide from a young age. Someone give these kids some tough love discipline and explain that while their teacher’s career and reputation might still be salvaged, for themselves, however, they may have blown it for life.

    Just what I was thinking.

    I am not in favor of the LGBT agenda, but seriously, this pastor is an idiot of the first order. Does he honestly expect the publicly proclaiming that gays should be stoned will touch anyone’s heart in a way that leads to change?

    This is the US and he has the right to say and preach what he will, but this guy deliberately posted and inflammatory message, fully expecting some kind of backlash, and then played the victim. What a moron.

    “They said the department should cut the number of workers who hold security clearances, conduct better and routinely updated background checks, and establish a system to evaluate and handle employees who are potential threats” (no duh), that, and it should be presumed that a MILITARY installation will have a considerable number of armed guards on staff. Really, US bases, shipyards, airstrips, and military offices should not be considered soft targets. The only difference between insane and stupid is that insane has limits.

    I don’t recall there ever being a law saying boys can not read books labelled as for girls or vice versa.

    I guess this journalist has no concept that maybe we as parents buy gender specific books and toys because it is in line with our children’s interests. My daughter love princesses, and tolerates airplanes. My son loves airplanes and tolerates princesses. Neither one especially likes having to share their books and toys. Sometimes they share, most of the time they prefer their own toys. Do you know what that’s called?… No, not hetero-****-whatnotism. It’s called NORMAL.

    How is a sandbox any more macabre than placing a bench or cultivating flowers over a grave? Eventually, that sandbox probably will probably be turned into a flower bed. We have this modern fear and solemnity surrounding death. Once upon a time, death was not viewed as strange or mysterious. While it was just as sad a traumatic, it was common place and just a part of life. A family member died, and you buried him, and you regularly took the surviving family members to the cemetery for a picnic.

    This coming from Bill “Common Core” Gates who thinks “teacher/educator” is a low skill job that can be replaced by technology.

    The tricky thing about hijacking large aircraft is not boarding the it, or taking out the pilots or staff. It’s overriding the autopilot and flying the plane to an alternate destination with precision (almost impossible without ground assistance). Let’s overcome the assumption that pilots actually control passenger flights once airborne, because as a rule, they don’t; in fact, most take offs and landings, and even taxiing in many cases, are computer controlled. There are safety and security protocols that prevent unauthorized persons (including the pilots) from redirecting large aircraft. It’s one of the reasons why 9/11 was such a outstanding event. It wasn’t just the sheer carnage and destruction wrought, it was the massive security failure from the bottom to the top and everywhere in between. The event was a success by terrorists’ standards, so why haven’t we seen another? It’s more than beefed up security, it’s that it was nearly impossible to pull off in the first place. While the presence of two men with stolen passports is suspicious, until further evidence that they had a hand in the disappearance of the plane is brought to light, then terrorism is only speculation.

    It’s already here in the US. Everything is monitored, everything is tracked. It doesn’t matter one iota if you use cash or card to pay for your goods. If your face is seen on camera, they know where you were, how much you withdrew, and/or what you purchased. If you drive, chances are good there is a data base with your driving habits and your regular routes and schedule whether or not you have a GPS device on you or your vehicle. If you receive or send mail via USPS, they know who your close contacts are and what state your marriage and health is in (I worked for USPS for a season, it was fun, but you learn some strange things). As a matter of fact, if you use anything other that a private and anonymous courier service to convey messages and conduct business, you dealings are known.

    Health messages with regard to neighborhood and socio economic status… we have had that for decades. It’s called market research, and you bet they answer government requests for information. What’s new is that the public knows about it and is becoming comfortable with the idea.

    There’s more going on here than was told. Why did they knowingly keep and aggressive cat around their baby? Uh, he kicked the cat after it scratched the baby and it came unhinged and charged them… is this the first time the man kicked the cat, or is there a history of hurting the cat for misbehaving? HELLO?! It is confirmed you have a dangerous animal in your house and you are only considering getting rid of the cat? In my house it would go without question. Either the vet puts it down and has it cremated, or (if it’s an emergency, such as the one this family faced) I kill the cat myself and bury it in the woods.

    I was starting to think maybe he recently moved from New York and only had a seven round clip which he altered to hold eight and kept an extra bullet in the chamber; but I guess a compact makes more sense.

  • March 11, 2014 at 2:45pm

    What?! Only nine rounds?!

    I think the idea of changing culture and having Walt Disney as a source of inspiration is a little crazy, but then again, sanity never changed the world.

    There are women out there who can and do set aside their fear in order to defend against an attacker bent on killing and death, just not that that woman at that time. However, it’s not her story; she’s not the hero or the bad guy. Leave her alone.

    We need more men like that one, who would put their lives on the line to protect others. Men of courage, men of and of sound judgement. I’m sure he felt afraid, but he was able to stand up and do what’s right. I’ll say the world could use more heroic women, but right now, the call for men to stand and be counted is a desperate plea. It is no wonder a bouncer just doing his job makes headlines.

    It strikes me as more than a little inappropriate in a church setting to stage a mock arrest, especially without informing every member in writing and in preface to the sermon that such a thing will be taking place. I understand the sentiment of being prepared to defend one’s faith against a rogue government, particularly our own; but there are better ways of addressing the issue than traumatizing a congregation and putting good police officers at risk of those that feel a church is a sanctuary.

    26% That seems high. Here’s the link to the results of the survey.

    http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/seind14/content/chapter-7/at07-09.pdf

    Some of questions deal with Big Bang and Evolutionary theory, so it’s understandable if a lot of people do not answer those questions with scientific answers; but I’m curious where the survey was administered and who took part. Socio-economic status will effect the answers people give. Did the participants represent a cross section of Americans? Were they paid to take the survey (rich well educated people do not usually visit pay-per-survey websites). Was it administered by phone (not a lot of the well-to-do will answer or return calls to phone survey companies). What age groups answered? Wealth? Education level? Race? Religion? All factors which if any one group demographic is over or under represented will influence the accuracy of a survey measuring American scientific knowledge. This survey makes Americans look 25% stupid and there-fore more money must be spent on public school for reading, science, and math education (Common Core).
