Blaze, why are you just dumbly printing AP’s tired old lie about risking default on the debt if this disaster isn’t passed? How about contributing something useful to the story by refuting all the nonsense in the original article? This isn’t going to help any GOP candidates in 2016 except those who vote against it.

I would say only naive or ignorant people want our representatives to “work across the aisle”. If I wanted my Rep to vote in destructive progressive policies, I would have voted for a Democrat. The left is taking this country straight to h*ll, and I want my Reps to OPPOSE the other side of the aisle with everything they’ve got, even if it means gridlock. All this “bipartisan” BS is destroying the country.

Stars produce huge quantities of elements up to and including iron in their cores as part of the fusion process. They can also contain traces of heavier elements, up to Uranium, either due to incorporation in the original star mass or through gravitational collection or “sweeping” during its lifetime. What seems to me to be a more meaningful question is how planets that were in stable orbits throughout the star’s life are now, after the star has shed a large portion of its mass, spiraling into the greatly reduced mass of the white dwarf. Loss of orbital velocity due to drag from the hydrogen and helium atmosphere as it was blown out past the planets’ orbits?
The main article on NASA.gov has a lot more detail. When the star shed its top layer, it did so with enough energy to wipe the surface of the planet clean of loose rock (a great deal of its mantle). This debris now trails the planet like a comet's tail. This is what's feeding the star.

I’ve written pages and pages on this topic. For one thing, take out the few cities with the most restrictive gun laws and our homicide rate falls way down on the list. Second, America has thrown the Christian principles that made us the freest and greatest nation on Earth down the toilet; we no longer respect life or tolerate differing viewpoints, and we’ve taught our kids that the world revolves around them and what they want, and if anyone denies them what they want, force or violence are the answer.

Your comment suggests utter ignorance and unquestioning acceptance of of the ******* propaganda line. First, even in the most severe “shutdown” scenario, there is absolutely ZERO chance of defaulting on the debt, because it would remain the #1 priority among the 85% of government functions that continue uninterrupted in any shutdown. Second, the government has been “shut down” 18 times since the 1980′s over budget impasses; it’s certainly not the menacing bogey-man statists and progressives pretend it is. Third, this irrational fear of a shutdown is nothing but an excuse used by the spineless establishment RINO’s to fall over dead at the slightest sign of disagreement with Obama. If you take a look at the poll numbers, you’ll find (or would if not blinded by your ideology) that the Republican establishment has single-digit approval ratings from registered Republicans. The “Tea Party” members (though that is another ignorant misrepresentation) actually represent the majority of the Republican voter base.
Better luck next time in your efforts to trash mainstream conservatism. Or rather, better research–that and an open mind will lead you to a much more meaningful contribution to the Comment sections of Blaze articles.
At 6:05 pm when funshow posted that drivel the Fed was closed. Happens every night. What a complete and utter moron. Guessing taxes are racist next.
Yes indeed you are correct.
Thenoshow's popularity is freaky. I see lots of similar post
on mediate, media matters, huffpo with about the same
Ever notice liberal's follow each other around? like teenager's
at the mall, gossipy and kinda all stuck up. I wish liberals grew
out of that like teens usually do, sadly some just stay that way
and grow up to become abstract column commentors, Their
ignorance and glib persona seem to be more a magnet theses
days too. The repulsive MSM regurgitation's they actually present
are being masked as intelligent thought, sputtered and spouted about
with self- righteous, prideful indignation. Followed by being aloof and
smug. It's downright scary what passes as smarts anymore.
Good reply Strasser, i was strolling down to see if anyone
had already annihilated thenoshows subversive rino bait,
and was happy to read your post. Well written too IMO.

Wow, Debbie. And you and your party are excusing the murder of thousands of innocent Americans in our cities every year by denying them access to firearms to protect themselves–and excusing the murder of a million children every year through abortion.

No, you propagandizing fool, this did NOT happen because of a need for gun control, it happened because YOUR BOSS and other progressive demagogues have done such a swell job at promoting intolerance, racial hatred, and a predisposition toward violent confrontation in America. There have always been guns in America–we didn’t have issues with gun violence until you b*st*rds came along. It’s progressives and race-baiters who need to be controlled and eliminated from our society, not guns!

Perhaps Glenn wanted to protect them by not listing their names?
Perhaps, but that's not the story he's telling.
"No one wanted their name on this book."
He's painting himself as the hero - the only soul brave enough to put his name on the book - and making a statement about Islam at the same time..."see, you can't even put your name on something criticizing that religion or they'll kill you!"
They’ll kill you even if you don’t put you name on a book… See Charlie Hebdo…

We’re all screwed, my friend, all but the elite. We will have nothing but each other–and that will be the key to our survival. Assembling neighborhood and then larger networks to all pitch in and help each other through the worst of it–and defend against the uprisings of those who choose to take rather than participate.
 August 12, 2015 at 2:42pm
The RINO’s are the ones who conform to the party’s not-so-secret “Secret Platform”. The ones who don’t conform are the “wacko birds”.

Why is Trump being such a crybaby? I have no opinion of Megyn Kelly, having never watched or listened to or read anything written by her, but I think it’s perfectly fair to target each candidate–as they did last night–with direct questions about their most glaring personal faults. Trump has spent several decades putting himself in the spotlight by big-mouthing and bad-mouthing anyone and everyone he doesn’t like, and that does not make for a good President, either before Congress, the press, or foreign dignitaries. Trump should be able to take criticism as well as he dishes it out, regardless of who it comes from.
As for him leading in the Drudge poll after the debate, I think he’s still being carried by the anger of the American right (myself included), not by his skills or promise as a potential President. I like the way he’s influencing the tone and topics of the debate, but President Trump? That sounds to me like as big a disaster as President Obama, Clinton, or Biden–entirely different reasons, but a big disaster nonetheless.
I will ONLY fly the Stars and Stripes upside down until this country is taken off the fast track to H*ll and things are set straight. The inverted flag to me actually honors our military, because it says “what the heck are we doing to the America they fought for???” I think it’s a little flippant of Pac Sun to make it a casual fashion statement, but to me it certainly doesn’t rise to the level of trampling or burning the flag.

Considering how much influence Karl Rove has over Fox News, this poll only convinces me more that Rubio is an establishment puppet who’s in the race as a spoiler to prevent a real conservative from winning the nomination.

I would be happy to see “Made in Mexico” on all the crap that says “Made in China” now if it would mean all those millions of illegals would go home and get honest factory jobs. That sounds like a win-win for America.

What a shameless fraud! God will separate the worthy from the frauds in the end; in the meantime, this kind of holy hustler gives the Godless that much more excuse to villify all Christians.

1) Every one of these cowards needs to be flooded with angry calls and emails from now…
2) …until they are primaried in 2016. Not only that, but
3) All the cowards who voted either FOR Boehner for Speaker back in January OR FOR the 3 week funding bill last week should be held just as accountable as these 70 for the murder of the U.S. Constitution and America.
Filthy, lying cowards one and all.
It’s time to start that 3rd party to drive a dagger into the heart of the Republican party. Yes, that means the Dumbascr*ps will win landslide victories in coming elections, but if the collapse into chaos is going to happen, let it happen as soon as possible before the current generation gets too old to fight the ensuing battle to restore Liberty. God knows the younger generation lacks the brains, the backbone, and the b*lls to fight the coming tyranny.

The liars and cowards in the GOP need to stop wasting our time and insulting our intelligence with this infantile nonsense. They know Obama will veto any repeal bill, and they know they don’t have the votes to override his veto. This is nothing but smoke and mirrors to try to fool people into thinking they’re trying to keep their campaign promises, when in fact they willfully surrendered their only real power to stop any of Obama’s agenda when they voted for the “Cromnibus” disaster.

I absolutely agree it should be the parents’ right to decide. Guess what–if the public could be confident that the vaccines available had been properly proven effective and honestly vetted for toxic content or dangerous side effects–if everyone could believe that the benefits far outweigh the dangers, and that a vaccine is not just being rammed into us by a corrupt government to make multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies even more fabulously wealthy–then an overwhelming majority of the public would choose to have their children vaccinated!
Instead of demonizing parents who don’t trust the government/Big Pharma sales pitch, we should be demanding more transparent evaluations of vaccines and medical drugs in general. Instead of suggesting declining parents be thrown in jail, we should be getting our borders under control to make sure we’re not blindly importing diseases long ago banished from our shores.
The public is confident that vaccines are safe and effective. Unfortunately, a growing minority of people who are either too stupid, or ignorant to look at real facts, are making things bad. I agree, parents should have that choice, but they should be making that decision based on actual facts and studies, not Jenny McCarthy and a paper that was withdrawn because it was riddled with problems.
I have been working in pharmacy for 13 years, and I'm currently finishing a degree in the healthcare field. While I'm not opposed to all vaccines and I recognize the amazing things we have achieved with medicine (e.g. eradication of smallpox), I DO NOT trust the government when it comes to medicine. You mentioned Big Pharma- anyone who thinks these companies don't throw their money around with the FDA and CDC, or HHS, or any other corner of the Federal government, in order to make certain things happen in their favor- you're living in la-la land. I agree, medical research should be more transparent and parents should educate themselves and carefully consider which vaccines they feel are necessary for their children.
So you think that Big Pharma is making huge profits off of vaccines. A pneumococcal vaccine costs the tax payers $53. The cost of a hospital stay due to a pneumococcal infection $5735 per day. If it was about the money, Big Pharma wouldn't give vaccines they would want everyone to get hospitalized. The truth is, most companies lose money on every vaccine given. Their profits come from the pharmaceutics side of the business. There are literally tens of thousand of studies showing how safe and effective vaccines are.

IMHO, he’s stepping aside as a result of his “private” meeting with Jebba the Hut. I think he agreed to step aside to avoid splitting the RINO vote and guarantee Jebba would get the nomination. Of the two, I think Romney would have been the lesser of two evils. Now, whichever genuine conservative we manage to sneak into the “Progressives Only” GOP convention is going to have to go up against a party unified behind Jebba.
