@Rigworker – Thank you for your reply. Emotions are not a good thing to run on if they’re taking over your common sense. As Yoda says in “The Phantom Menace” – “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” We can’t let fear take over. Just because someone proclaims that they’ll fix and pay for your troubles does not make that person right – that’s actually a big red flag!

Bingo! Watch what the other hand is doing.

@Rigworker – I do wonder how many people on this site are trolls looking to stir up trouble. However, this race and another issue or two in the past has revealed a divide among conservatives – those who have a knee-jerk reaction and those who take a second look before going forward. How many of us came to this site because of Glenn Beck and because we believed in what he was telling us? I know my family and I did, we’re still here and still love Glenn and crew. I can honestly say that it is because of them that I am more careful about who to support, even if they’re Republican, as I now know better that there are progressives that hide behind the Republican/Conservative label. However, I get the feeling that there are folks here who dislike Obama and his policies and therefore agreed with Glenn. But then the minute someone goes rogue against the government or claims to have the desire to do so, and Glenn expresses caution about supporting said person because of the manner in which that person is doing it, Glenn is vilified, as are those of us who express the similar concerns. Sometimes the discussions here remind me of what you’d see on left-leaning sites – you disagree? You’re dirt.
It’s sad – and the leftists/progressives, I’m sure, are loving seeing the divide among the right. We’re better than that, or I’d like to think we are.
SquirrelNYC you are oh so right and the thing is people are angry and frustrated and this is what has given rise to Trump. They let their emotions overrule anything that their brain is telling them. The only Truly Conservative currently running for President as rated by The Heritage Foundation is Ted Cruz. Rubio with his gang of 8 and buddy Schumer eliminated him for me. Ted went into Iowa openly opposed Government subsidies for ethanol and won in the farm rich counties and won the state over all. I believe Ted is the only one running that will actually do what he has campaigned to do.

Watch this video of Cruz and an Iowa farmer…and watch all the way through.
He's on right side of the ethanol issue, and most issues he spoke of, but the idea that he is going to eliminate ethanol ethanol subsidies and this will result in a massive increase in demand or market for ethanol (in cars) as a result is complete bs. He did handle him well though.

@venrooy – Unfortunately you’re biting the same bait that leftists do…and the leftists are loving seeing it. Some candidate comes riding in with the “I’LL save you” and “I’LL give you stuff” attitude and people believe him either out of desperation to see things get better or because of how popular he is – sound familiar? Trump sure is spouting out a lot of things he knows Americans want to hear, but he’s also sounds like quite the agitator. I’d be cautious – we all want to see the end of problems exacerbated by Obama, but one man cannot solve that. He can have all the money in the world, and he may be smart, but if principles and honor aren’t there, you might as well be voting for another Obama.

Worse…they’re just foolish followers who don’t know what Socialism is.
To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi – Who’s more foolish – the fool or the fool who follows him?
Remember this you must: socialism is not for the socialist young patawan, it is for the "little people", the sheeple, the drones that believe the endless tripe from CNN et al.

It was quite nice having this news as the first thing I saw on TV this morning – congrats Ted!

@Trip28 – Exactly – his own man. That’s why he takes the whimp’s approach and asks his subjects…I mean….supporters…to pull punches for him, possibly getting hurt on his behalf. Oh, but that’s OK, HE’LL pay the legal fees…and have a subject for life.
I’m sorry, but I feel bad for you that you can’t see what’s really going on here. BLACKDIAMONDSKIER brought up some terrible words – “bottom up, top down, inside out.” Remember hearing those words? Please think about it.
 February 1, 2016 at 7:17pm
@BLACKDIAMONDSKIER – Well said! I’m glad that you brought up “bottom up, top down, inside out.” I’ve already wondered if Trump running (and now being a bit of an agitator) has been a set-up to keep the country moving further toward the left. If Obama was saying what Trump was saying here, everyone here would be jumping down his throat. But oh no, now that Trump says it and is running with that convenient little (R) next to his name, it’s OK – how disgusting.
 February 1, 2016 at 7:03pm
That is a frightening thought indeed – unfortunately there are too many folks who can’t or refuse to think that through.
 February 1, 2016 at 7:00pm
Agreed – flocking to someone with the “I’LL save you” or “I’LL pay for you” attitude is dangerous. This has happened before, resulting in much worse situations.
Don’t vote out of desperation to end the madness – that will not solve anything. Vote for the honorable candidate!
 February 1, 2016 at 6:54pm
Wow – as little sympathy as I’d have for those throwing the tomatoes, all I think of when he offers to pay for the legal fees is the progressive “I’ll give you stuff” mentality. Sounds to me like bribery. That sure doesn’t sound or feel right – somehow I can’t imagine Cruz or Carson talking like that.

Sanders is nothing more than a piece of filth – truly evil. And Iook at that crowd…all those white faces …but there is no complaining from the hypocritical left that accuse the right of being racist. I’d be nauseous in that crowd of losers cheering for women killing their babies.
 January 27, 2016 at 1:17am
Trump is in it to win…just win, treating this whole election like another business deal and challenge. I trust him as much as I trust Obama.
 January 27, 2016 at 1:11am
This reminds me of the scene from “Revenge of the Sith” when Yoda comes to face the Emperor. Yoda says, “If so powerful you are (turns on lightsaber), why leave?” Go Fox News for sticking to your guns and not letting some wannabe power-hungry “politician” change the way you do things.
 January 27, 2016 at 1:05am
I’ve wondered that one – and not to help the Republicans but his pal from that is running from the left.
 January 27, 2016 at 1:02am
Hmmm….reminds me of someone else who seemed very intimidated by Megyn Kelly. Oh yes…Anthony Weiner…and that was obvious even before his perversions were out in the open.
Trump is showing himself to be just another whimp. If he is so invincible, why is he letting someone as lowly (in his eyes) as Megyn Kelly get under his skin?
Well, at least this should be a good intelligent debate for a change.

OK, point understood. However, as difficult as it can be for patients to go through surgery and for their families to go through the sit and wait process hoping everything goes well (as I remember going through with my grandmother and mom), it also provides some reassurance, showing that the process might not be something to be feared as much these days. As his own mother said – “He made all the worrying that a mom would do go away.” There just might be patients and their families out there that might find comfort in seeing this video. I’m personally amazed at how quickly he becomes aware of what just happened and remembers what he couldn’t do before the transplant – truly incredible!
