    How about we contact the offices of politicians and not just rant here? Flood them with civil, polite complaints every time they fail to represent us.

    Another shutdown. This probably won’t give us a break from being spied on.

    What has the DHS truly done that benefits us? Please correct me if I’m wrong. The recovered painting has me wondering if the news appeared so it can seem as if the DHS is doing something to justify its funding. I haven’t heard much else beyond the stories of them spying on citizens.

    Nothing is being done at the border – besides opening the door to illegals.

    The TSA hasn’t stopped anyone. They just react to what has already been done. I’d be for the idea of returning to the old style of security with just the metal detector and baggage X-ray. I have no objection to seeing some military at airports like there was just after 9/11. TSA hasn’t stopped anyone. Passengers and flight crew have stopped terrorists. TSA has annoyed people, offended some travelers, and provided us with fodder for jokes.

    What has DHS truly done? Do we need them? Am I missing something?

    They wanted a new toy to play with. Complete accident. They gave it up because you can’t play with a completed painting.

    They can open boxes of toys, but they won’t stop anyone at our borders.

    It’s an AP story being used here. I’d blame AP on this one. The Blaze is publishing what they’re given. Yeah, it bugged me too. I’d rather see other jokes like the old SNL routines. Was it Chevy Chase as Spock? It’s been awhile since I’ve watched my copy of it.

    Mark Lenard was also the Klingon Commander at the beginning of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

    Give it time. I’m just now reading this, but I also already watched it earlier today via my Roku. I already knew what he said. Others may skip over this article since it’s a clip from the radio show. Not everyone reads the comments. This may not be the best spot to organize a group. Plus, I don’t always remember where I left comments so I might never see replies to what I post.

    If groups in different cities could organize a meeting to get things moving, people will come. Unless people know where to gather, this is all talk OR we’re all independent movements. When we’re given links and contact info, many of us do act on the information – signing petitions, calling DC.

    It’s there. We just need help getting organized. I don’t even know where a local group is for me. …and I know nothing about starting one. I have no problem joining a group I agree with.

    It was named in the 60s. I went there as a kid in the 70s – in Dallas, the location by LBJ Freeway. My understanding is Walmart, Target, and Kmart all started around the same time.

    For now, video can be seen here – http://newsfeed.gawker.com/facebook-bully-fights-professional-mma-bully-inevitabl-1687793548?utm_campaign=socialflow_gawker_twitter&utm_source=gawker_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

    Video has been removed. I have no problem with what he did. Too many trolls can talk big but love the safety of sitting at their computers.

    A few years ago, a parent made her kid stand outside and hold a sign admitting that he stole something. Would she be arrested today?

    Would parents be arrested for grounding their kids? I have mixed feelings about the T-shirt itself, but this just seems like a public announcement of the child being grounded until certain goals are met. I do understand the arguments about psychological impact on the child, but I have no problem with the general idea of what was done. I think the T-shirt should have been simplified – “I’m grounded until my grades improve.” Keep it simple if you’re going to do a T-shirt. The full statement can be on a sheet of paper and signed as an agreement between child and parent. Have it in writing. If the child breaks the agreement, add to the punishment – an additional month or week after acceptable grades are achieved, perhaps. Have it in the agreement. That way you can show it to them if they break it. “We discussed the punishment. You said you understood it. You didn’t follow the rules I set so you have to be grounded another week like I told you you would be.”

    I don’t feel the mother should have been arrested for this. I feel this moves into the idea of a community raising a child. (Those MSNBC ads about kids not being your kids.) Unless you can prove abuse like bruises, sexual abuse or harsh verbal abuse at home, police should not be involved.

    I think I first saw him on Law & Order and then the Spider-Man movies. Never saw Oz. I probably saw him in other things. These are the roles I remember best.

    I think some teens with bad parents beat them to it. A mass of teens have caused trouble at a shopping mall and more recently a couple of movie theaters. What’s to keep them from becoming more violent? Even if they can’t borrow their parents’ gun, they could still get knives, bats, or something homemade like empty bottles with some gas in them with a rag used as fuse. Then again, I don’t recall any recent movies using that, and they may not care about watching anything more than 5 years old.

    I think some old style discipline is needed. Kids have gotten worse ever since spanking equated child abuse and the TV became the babysitter. Using the TV teaches the kids that parents don’t have time for them. I’m not criticizing the parents who spend time with their kids and might use the TV or something else when they’re exhausted or ill. I’m talking about the parents who refuse to be involved with their kids or just go through the motions.

    If something is important enough, you make the time for it. If a parent can set aside Friday night to party like a college student regularly, they can make time for their kids. Like Chris Rock said “Go home and deal with your kids before they rob me in 10 years.” (quoting from memory. 1999 performance)

    This is testimony in a lawsuit. Some guys got busted. How is this an announcement? Plus, the codes should be useless now. With 32 people on trial, the codes should be changed if they’re smart.

  • [1] February 22, 2015 at 4:08am

    It was legit but has probably been changed now. If you read the article, you’d know this was testimony in a lawsuit.

    Let’s not forget about the college guys who re-created Healthcare.gov on their own for about $600. I don’t remember if they were undergrads or grad students.

    He didn’t say it was false. Re-read the comment.

    He feels this article and others like it are a non-story – stuff we already learned in high school or middle school. Why is the sky blue? How does popcorn pop?

    Is it real science to spend tax dollars on discovering how squirrels interact with a robo-squirrel? (or some other animal) …or research into discovering if men and women are different? (It’s been too long ago to remember the specifics, but I do recall a study like that within the past decade.)

    You beat me to it. I was going to say a more general comment about most politicians and resident in chief, but this works.

  • [2] February 18, 2015 at 2:03pm

    If you read the article, it said the police don’t have the power to revoke his license. …last sentence. The incident is being reported to DMV.

    This is bad but not the worst I’ve seen. Buried in all of my tapes, somewhere I have a woman who didn’t know Reagan was President while he was in office. Someone is going around asking who Bush Sr. is, and we see all of the wrong answers. When the woman is told he’s the Vice President, she said,”Then who is Ronald Reagan?” I think most of us have seen worse videos. We rarely see people get any questions correct.

    After a quick search concerning Florida gun laws, I’m wondering if this was staged to spur interest in gun control. If I understand correctly, Florida isn’t very strict on guns – compared to someplace like Chicago. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    If people in FL are allowed to carry, why did no one shoot? …especially if people were threatened. Is this a liberal/Progessive area?

    However, I would not be surprised if mobs like this get staged in other areas with limited gun control so the media can support their agenda. I hate conspiracy theories, but I don’t trust our current government. When places have many protesters who aren’t local, something is up. When people want to purge our current form of government, they will do anything they can get away with.
