    It may not appear that I’m on subject here – but, hear me out. This young woman needs a reality check, as does her friend’s father.

    I remember (not so long ago) that the “children” could stay on their parents insurance policy until they were 26. I remember thinking at the time – we are really blurring the line of adolescent/adult age. Many people were happy with the decision, but what about the adult (mom or dad) family member that is insured through their employer, but has to pay for other members of their family? How many 19-26 year old children EVER OFFER to reimburse their parents for their insurance? It’s OUR JOB to raise them to be on their own . . . or at least it used to be. Sure am glad that I’m not dealing with that any more.

    You sound like someone that has emailed Dana with a progressive view point. Did she share your letter (on air) in the “Mailbag of Hate” segment?

    Well said.

    @CrazyTravis No, you wouldn’t. Making that comment says that you disagree with creationism, wouldn’t even consider checking out the debate from ’76, and use typical, weak Alinsky tactics. (Detecting Liberals 101)

    I don’t know how Jay looks in the mirror! I did like the part where he referenced EMPLOYER PROVIDED insurance. Hummm . . . that would be US – We the People – providing thatcoverage, correct?. Let’s cut his hours to 29 hours per week!

    From the story: Angry Senate Democrats have drafted legislation that dredges up a 2007 prostitution scandal involving Vitter.

    Now, that’s funny! After the past five years of scandals, what’s the big deal about a little politician/prostitution from 2007. Thanks Senator Vitter, for demanding that all of Congress and those “16,000 HARD WORKING Federal employees” (based on the Federal employees that I know – that term is an oxymoron) join us in health care hell.

    I think that someone told Harry about the “blue pill” or is it the “red pill” . . . either way, he’s apparently figured out that (age wise) he is in the “death panel” category!

    Best ad that any Republican or Libertarian could use for the 2016 campaign:

    “It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?” (Use the actual clip with Hillary speaking the words from the 2008 primary against BO.) Next frame: “What difference does it make?!!! (Use the actual clip with Hillary screeching these words at the Benghazi hearings.)

    Nothing else has to be said. (Providing Karl Rove is ousted as the “architect” of the GOP)

    Here’s a suggestion for Mitch and John – Grab some of those jobs bills that were passed in the House and ended up in Harry’s trash can. Tell the prez that he can read through them and find one that he likes!

    As I was reading your post – I would have bet that you had read Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm. Those books were required reading when I was in high school (early ’70′s). They should be required reading NOW! (FOR EVERYONE)

    Thomas Jefferson forsaw JUDICIAL TYRANNY – Where it was heading and that it would be an all out assult on our Constitution. And, here we are.

    The real story here is the Karl Rove factor. He has started a new fund raising group – the comically-named “Conservative Victory Project”. It is run by Steven Law, head of American Crossroads and former Chief of Staff to U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). It’s yet another example of the Republican establishment’s hostility toward its conservative base. IN OTHER WORDS . . . If this group backs a candidate – do your homework! Personally, I’m hoping for a STRONG Libertarian movement real soon!

    This is the sentence that JUMPED out at me while reading the story

    “When police EVENTUALLY arrived at the Las Vegas home . . .”

    People need to realize, when SECONDS count, the police will be there in minutes. That’s not a slam on the police – that’s just a fact.

    Now, what God is he speaking of? The one that I worship doesn’t agree with killing babies.

    WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE? Now THAT quote appears to be some pretty dangerous and hateful rhetoric – full of violent, toxic imagery: “with a gun at the head of the American people.” (No, I’m not really that thin skinned. But, I laugh thinking what the headlines would have been if a Republican would have uttered those words!) Did THAT GUY just manage to bring up the gun debate while speaking about the debt ceiling?

    Soros funded the PAC that started this controversy – American Bridge PAC. Did Akin start the mess – yes- by voicing his beliefs. I (a woman) felt like a previous poster – I understood what he was saying and was not offended in any way. Apparently American Bridge PAC had targeted Akin with watchdogs just waiting for any kind of word slip that would give them a platform to to promote McCaskill. The “old guard” Republicans did not want Akin in the Senate and they foolishly jumped on board. If Akin loses this race – it is not his fault – it’sthe fault of Karl Rove and his ilk. Akin’s and McCaskill’s voting records and leanings are starkly different! And seriously, if his conservative record is over-shadowed due to this ONE statement – then you (anyone calling themselves a conservative) weren’t a conservative to begin with. Karl Rove CRAP like this has made me distance myself from the Republican Party. In the mean time – conservatives (from Missouri) have helped to elect Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Lee, etc. – so do your part (from where you are) and help Akin win this race.

    I think that you hit the nail on the head!

    Or . . . was he saying legitimate – as in, WAS IT REALLY RAPE rather than – I would feel better about having this abortion if I convince myself that it wasn’t consentual sex? I’m not sure what he meant. But for all that started SCREECHING – he has offered clarification. (“I made that statement in error. Let me be clear: rape is never legitimate; it’s an evil act that’s committed by violent predators. “I used the wrong words in the wrong way. What I said was ill-conceived and it was wrong, and for that, I apologize.”)

    I’ve checked Akin’s record and he is very conservative. I have no problem with that – you know where he stands and how he’s going to vote and the November election will decide his fate in Missouri. What I do have a problem with, is how quickly THE PARTY is willing to throw him under a bus for the sake of “winning”. PARTY members from all over the country are weighing in and telling him to step down. Makes me think that the PARTY expected a different candidate to win the primary?

    Only a liberal could make the “jump” from a rifle to a SCUD missle. Kind of like when they make that “jump” of taxing those awful MILLIONARES that earn $250K.

    I’ve heard a few interviews with actors explaining how they PREPARE for roles – in order to BECOME that person and I actually find it pretty creepy. How do they DE-PROGRAM? Hummm . . . Do they FOREVER hear all those voices in their heads? Sounds like an occupation that could lead to some serious mental problems!

    I’m begging you BLAZE – please don’t write another story about Hollywood’s opinion – most of us DON’T CARE!

    I actually have many Democrat friends and from what I have gathered they are (I have nick named them) GENERATIONAL DEMOCRATS: They vote Democrat because their daddy did and his daddy’s daddy did, etc. It’s a tradition that they will not break. Most of them live their lives as a conservative, and have no idea what their party stands for – or is up to. They are WILLFULLY IGNORANT on things concerning politics, history or current events. They read People Magazine and watch Matt Lauer to get their “News” for the day. They are hard workers – but you won’t find a self-employed one in the bunch. But, make a comment about a Democrat Politician and they are ready to have a shouting match!
