I didn’t read all of symphonic’s comments so I can’t agree with everything but I will say this. For those who have served – good for you, but it ends there. It doesn’t earn you a lifetime of society owing you anything because many of us, if there were actually a legitimate conflict (there has not been a legitimate conflict in over a generation, and even that could be called into question,) that necessitated us going to serve, we would gladly go.
I chose not to join the military and it’s probably a good thing I didn’t. My talents have served society in other ways that would’ve been wasted in a corrupt institution that is the military industrial complex. I have family that have served and they feel the same way – society does not permanently owe them something simply because they made a choice to sign up for the military. It’s this society it’s a selfish decision for most and has nothing to do with “providing us with free speech.” That’s what you’ve been programmed to believe. Open your mind, think for yourself. For those who are actively serving, God Bless you, and I hope you make it through….but quit the high and mighty act when you’re done. You’re only a middle man fighting others childhood fantasies and desires – you’re just too programmed to realize it – which is exactly where the military needs its members to be. Otherwise there would be revolt.
As far as this guy – he’s obviously just a liar. That uniform has been bled on and pissed on for years.

I don’t know why but I busted out laughing when I read your post. Thanks for the laugh. It’s nearly impossible to get a laugh out of me. I’ve followed this incident from day one.

If you listen closely, I believe the BP Agent is saying “You didn’t the the Lights?” As in, his flashing lights mounted on top of the van. Not the stop light. If you read the story, it’s easy to see it from both sides. In the story, “Ted” leaves out information to the 911 operator, saying “he doesn’t know” what he said to him, even when asked directly, and even goes on to say “He’s just yelling something at me.” It’s called an accident for a reason. Technically I think “Ted” is required by law to yield to the vehicle, if it was using the lights per the BP emergency procedures.

I’m ashamed at myself for even dignifying your comments as anything but nonsense but nevertheless I will. How exactly do you know what the motives or thoughts were of the guys on the moped? It’s time “we” start showing who your boots? No one wants to see your boots. We see plenty of boots, labeled as “state police,” city police, and otherwise, so we certainly don’t want to see yours. You may have “served” in the military. That doesn’t give you a free pass in today’s society. These are not the wars of the past. It’s a brave new world. Get with it.

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976
§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
These so-called soldiers (or Marines) are criminals. Look at how they run off with the flag as though they’ve done something good for their country. This protest – apparently – was against the rising police state in NM and elsewhere in the US. We do not know the full story here, however, their behavior suggests they are bullies and thugs. Take a look around, then take a look at the flag code itself. We are in a state of dire distress and these guys with the flag were perfectly within their rights.
Notice you hear one of the so-called “soldiers” (or Marines) scream at the bystander, “I don’t give a damn about their civil rights.” Yet you did your job? Sure, soldier, Marine, or whatever you claim to be.
Passed by Franklin D Roosevelt. That should be enough to discredit a "flag code."

I’d use it. Me and the wife often text each other certain things just so the kids don’t hear or because we are in different parts of the house.

“In this Gravity project I want to capture earths different elements and let them stand out in their natural surroundings using moments of zero gravity, she continued. “‘Sand Creatures’ is the first in line.”
This is not a moment of “zero gravity.” It’s a moment in time, where the camera has captured the role of gravity on a substance such as sand.
I guess I’m the only one who is simply annoyed by Dana Loesch and her prop shotgun. This is just yet another reason why I am canceling my Blaze TV subscription. (One other main/recent reason is of course the simple fact that Mr. Beck refuses to offer the 1791 private email accounts to anyone but ANNUAL subscribers. So, forget the fact that you’ve been a loyal supporter of GB since the HLN days, (as I have,) now you can only get access if you pay annually.)
Anyway, I can’t stand her attitude. This is just a ploy to support her own career by promoting her book. If you notice, every guest on the Blaze TV lately has a book that they’re promoting. So between the guests who just want sales, and all of the ads, this is mainly just a big money making scheme nowadays. But more than that, go away Dana. That attitude of yours is beyond unattractive.
Dude,If you've been paying for the service for that many years, you've screwed yourself because you're such a tightwad. Freedom isn't free!
P.S. Don't let the door hit ya on the way out.
P.S.S. Happy Turkey Day and a Mesmerizing Christmas
A few years ago Dana won a blog naming contest held by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. First prize was writing a blog that would be featured in the Style section of the Newspaper. Dana submitted the name "Mommalogues" and won. I could not find a link to the site - I assume the STL Pot-Dispatch owned the publishing rights and took the site off line
I sincerely thought the site was charming. She would talk about her husband, the "artist", her two children and the family's zany antics. She was able to combine a short story and photos in an entertaining way. I remember her son finding a frog under their living room sofa and Dana modeling some old boots. At some point Dana and the Post parted ways essentially putting an end to what was a fairly high profile ans well paying job - for St. Louis, MO.
Dana is attractive, photogenic and presents herself well. She landed some guest hosting gigs on 971Talk - Fox's FM radio station. Shortly thereafter she began hosting some segments on a morning political talk show. Nothing national - just local topics.
She started getting some attention by claiming to be a founder of the St. Louis Tea Party movement. A claim I find disputable but only important for being the reason she began to garner some attention outside of the city. I have to hand it to Dana that she made something out of nothing.
Yea right like you actually have one to cancel. You posted EXACTLY the same thing a week or two ago LIAR!
November 14, 2013 at 3:25pm
I did read your post, and you’ve now repeated exactly what I was explaining. As I said, they haven’t merged The Blaze comments into the TV yet, which is what we pay the $9.99/month for. They will eventually merge the two if they can get with the times.
I will no longer dignify your delusional comments that attempt to be condescending, when in reality, you’re just throwing out baseless assumptions based off of a username I made while I was quite disabled. What does my happiness have to do with the concerns of this business, that I am paying my hard earned money to build and run?
It’s not impressive that you looked up my past comments, it’s pathetic.
November 13, 2013 at 10:07pm
If you knew even the slightest thing about The Blaze, GBTV, etc., you would know that The Blaze comments section is a completely different account than The Blaze TV. Different join date, username, and password. They haven’t applied the technology to merge it all together yet.
That’s why when you goto the login page it specifically asks, login to post comments or login to watch The Blaze TV.
Lastly, this almost all has nothing to do with the email. I wouldn’t switch my email over anyway because I’d then be stuck paying $9.99 a month just because I don’t want to take the time to switch all of my services over. Additionally, I can’t trust that they won’t get shut down, choose to shut down as other private TX based email companies recently have, or just realize it won’t be private. No communications are private, and if their servers are located on U.S. Soil, it won’t last long. Like I said, even the most basic and fundamental issues are skipped over by you which makes your line of thinking and comments delusional.
November 13, 2013 at 10:00pm
….Point is, I’m no troll. The Blaze says it allows 1500 characters but always cuts off the last few. They need to fix that.
I pay (what I consider to be my hard earned) good money for The Blaze. What if it were $5000/month? Would I be justified in asking for my email address then? Or would I still just be a “troll?” The value of money is often times quite relative depending on so many factors. I think we can all agree you’re simply a delusional follower of GB and you will agree to, buy into, and consequently defend anything you’re told. Because you worked hard for that annual subscription, and so this decision this time simply doesn’t affect you. Even if it offends one of the most loyal, Godly, patriotic, brave, gentle, kind, and sadly for me anyway – disabled, souls out there. Who is stayathomedad? A man who is all of those and so much more.
Thing with today’s free market, I can take my opinion and reach thousands, perhaps millions in a matter of milliseconds. If you want to gamble Glenn, let’s roll. It was never about the actual email address, it’s the principle. Simple as that.
November 13, 2013 at 9:42pm
WorriedNVMom – You really ought to look up the definition of a troll. You sit here on your keyboard, quoting the bible, meanwhile, mortally deep in sin you sit in judgement of myself because of a few old comments. How dare you. You’ve made so many assumptions just because I’m not afraid to speak my mind and yet, you ignorantly breeze over the plain truths I’ve spoken. I forgive you though, because you are clearly idolizing Mr. Beck so desperately that you’re lost, just as the Bible says – there will be those so lost they simply cannot understand. It’s a delusion from Satan himself, and you’re living in it.
I don’t know about you, but I still live in America. Yes, I made those comments, and I only login and force myself to deal with all of the horrible coding issues that make up the comments section if something is worth commenting on. This issue most certainly is – as like I said it speaks volumes to the principles this company is following. (Or lack thereof.) I will no longer do business here, which is my choice (annual subscribers lose that choice for one year.)! I will also tell my groups of friends and family to follow suit.
I’ve owned many internet businesses and forums back in the late 90′s, way before it was ever cool. Before Facebook, before MySpace, before Google was even big. I worked for Napster (if you have to look it up, go ahead, it literally defined the way all music is stored online and as a result in real life as well.). Point is,

Am I really morally deep in sin in judgement of you or just quoting your own words? And thank you for forgiving me. I will pray for you (this is not said in sarcasm, it's said from my heart) that you have peace in your life and you won't let the little things like not getting a free email account cause you so much stress. We all need to work together and put aside our differences. We will never agree on everything and that's okay, but we do agree that we need to fight to save our country...for your Children and for mine.
November 13, 2013 at 2:24pm
Really? It’s not free nor am I asking for anything that is free. I pay my dues at $9.99 per month and that should cover any services, new or existing, that The Blaze has to offer. If it doesn’t, and they want to go down this road, then fine. I’m over it. And guess what, I’ll be sure to tell everyone I come across I can that same sentiment to stay away from any sort of paid-per-month Blaze services. It’s just business right? Nothing personal. I’ll speak my opinion and we will let the free market decide if any of this content is worth it to them either.
The fact is, saying this is just too expensive for a paid monthly subscriber is just an excuse. As others have mentioned, annual subscribers actually shell out less money than a monthly subscriber. This decision is nothing more than a selfish call GB made to line his pockets. And he’s too narcissistic to notice obviously. I’ve nothing against him personally but as I said before, this speaks to the principals his company is willing to follow.
Okay Stayathomedaddy, let's clarify who you really are! 12/15/12 "It’s always about “our sponsor this half hour…” Well, no more…as I am strongly considering my membership that I give my hard earned money to. The country is literally falling apart and GBTV/The Blaze is junk." AND..."So whatever, The Blaze ….you guys are a joke to your own fault." AND...Beck is done for the year as well. What are we even paying for?? His vacations, in all likelihood. We payed for his daughter’s lavish wedding as well, where Beck may or may not have had a few drinks and room his security detail out for a joy ride. Know what, Glenn? “Cowboy Up” and quit taking so many vacations on our dime. I’m personally leaning to cancel my membership," 1/22/13 "Once again, Blaze, you’re proving yourself to be just like the liberal media.." AND OF COURSE YOUR LAST 3 STUPID POSTS ON THIS PAGE. You are a TROLL!
Wow, for a guy who isn't too keen on GB, you sure do like hanging around his website b!tching and moaning about him for nearly a year. I have a site for you: www.moveon.com
November 12, 2013 at 8:13pm
That’s exactly right. I have managed to afford the Blaze without ever missing a single month but I simply do not have the resources to pay for an annual subscription. Not to mention, if Glenn strays from decent principals, as he is here, I want to have the option of canceling.
I want to see most of Glenn’s ideas spread but I’ll be sure to tell everyone about this mess and will make dang sure others don’t sign up. This 1791 email isn’t a whole lot different from the 1791 jeans. Yeah, they’re quality, and nice, but who among us wants to shell out $99 for a so-called private email address? The Blaze doesn’t have the authority to say with certainty it’ll even be private in today’s world, and they know that.
November 12, 2013 at 3:11pm
I’ve been a Blaze subscriber from the beginning also. I was here before the Insider Extreme days, into GBTV, and now TheBlaze. My wife and I have lived in Texas our entire lives and we embody the traditional American life. We’re married. We are raising children. We work hard. We goto church on Sundays. We have payed to see Glenn Beck’s tours. I will never forget that because on the way inside GB’s show I was forced to return my legally concealed handgun (CHL in TX) all the way back to my car. Where it was parked, blocks away. During that show they offered up a chance for the audience to ask questions, and Glenn and friends would answer a few at the end. Well, Glenn personally answered mine. I didn’t know at the time but this is when he was obviously toying with the idea of moving his company to Texas. If I recall correctly, he said the choice of security to allow concealed guns for the venue was up to him, and it would never happen again… at least not in Texas.
This is extremely disappointing to see Glenn Beck only allowing the annual subscribers access to the email addresses. I don’t think my wife will put up much protest to save $9.99/month but I will be canceling after discussing this with her. This will be the first time in years that I’ve not had access to all of the content. I will also go ahead and let my parents know, grandparents, and friends. To me, this is a business decision that speaks volumes about the principles this company is fol

This just isn’t real. The professor from MIT explains:
That youtube vid is from 2009. It is now 2013. Allot has changed in just a few short years like this young lady receiving an award.
I wonder how fast this will fry your battery. Im skeptical. This article needs more info. They should consider rewriting the title to this article too. "You can you charge your phone"?????
January 22, 2013 at 2:33pm
Quote, TheBlaze, “Still reeling from the fallout at Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, yet another mass-shooting seems to have just unfolded in Houston. The local Fox News affiliate reports that shots were fired Tuesday…”
Not much of a mass shooting…more of like a FEW shots fired at a college….so nothing like SH. I’m in Houston, and my wife is in a college right now, but I don’t want them to use this to enact more gun control. Rather, this is all the more reason to allow law abiding CHL holders to carry on campus to stop and prevent this sort of thing.
Once again, Blaze, you’re proving yourself to be just like the liberal media. Also, your initial reports that linked directly to My Fox Houston… Just wanted to say they’re one of the smaller, cheaper less respected channels here so next time use CBS or NBC. They’re all the same in the end.
My thoughts exactly when I read the first sentence. Good God can people/reporters not blow things out of proportion??
Thanks for the NBC tip, much better coverage there.
quick quick hyperventilate! Shots.. gasp.. were.. ugh! Fired!!! OMG like totally .. what are we going to do! (run around in circles screaming!)
They treat these stories like someone set off a small yield nuclear device.
December 15, 2012 at 9:52pm
Exactly right, Chris!!
I feel like I’m watching the Benghazi scandal actually being addressed in the mainstream news. Oh wait, Hillary has a concussion and has to “rest at home” until Congress is done for the year. Beck is done for the year as well. What are we even paying for?? His vacations, in all likelihood. We payed for his daughter’s lavish wedding as well, where Beck may or may not have had a few drinks and room his security detail out for a joy ride. Know what, Glenn? “Cowboy Up” and quit taking so many vacations on our dime. I’m personally leaning to cancel my membership, and no, I did not join as my Blaze account date suggests. That’s when I joined this news portion of the site to post comments. I had been a member back when it was just glennbeck.com. But guess what folks? The election is over, the Republican Party is now officially useless and will not recover, so what is there to talk about now? This is why Glenn wasted my entire drive home Friday morning talking about his wardrobe and overpriced jeans. I’ve had it with him promoting ll of these “made in the USA” products that are nothing but boutique items. I ordered two of those “Glenn’s number one favorite Marketplace item” which was chocolate dipped potato chip crumbs dusted with a single spec of real sea salt. Payed about twenty dollars for two units, thinking it’d be a bag or something. Instead it was a tiny piece, about the size of a small cookie, for $10/piece. Shame o
December 15, 2012 at 7:10pm
I was too busy telling the truth about Glenn to add that I too read that only handguns were found inside and the rifle was found in a car, outside. So whatever, The Blaze ….you guys are a joke to your own fault. I noticed The Blaze also took a stock photo of a .223 AR-15 and posted it up on their site, when in fact, no one knows it was an AR. I read elsewhere it was an M4 .223. Could’ve just been a boring old .223 Ruger Ranch Rifle. Point is, The Blaze jumped onto the “lets show a classic assault rifle photo” just as the EVIL MSM does in times like these…
