    I have nothing but sympathy for her, Patriot, but I also believe in the sanctity of life and think it horrendous that we should task physicians, whose job it is to help extend life, to also prematurely end it.

    Had she chosen to do this privately, none of us would ever know about it. How many people have taken advantage of Oregon’s assisted suicide law? I have no idea. What’s one more?

    But what she did do is set up an advocacy group and decided to spend the rest of her days stumping for all states to legalize the practice. That deserves an answer. If you are going to do that on any subject of controversy, you are going to get some detractors. If the internet has taught us anything, many of those detractors are going to be vile. You need to consider that if you are going to be a spokesperson for any cause.

    Hypocrite. You stand in judgement of me for standing in judgement. If it’s wrong to judge, where do you get off doing it now? If your advice to me is so sage, why don’t you follow it yourself? You don’t know me or what I’ve lived through.

    My criticism of her is valid because she chose to be a public figure stumping for the legalization of consensual murder. Your criticism of me would be valid if you weren’t telling me not to do exactly what you are doing.

    This is more chauvinism than feminism, but, strangely enough, the feminists have not tried to remove this block to their full equality.

    “Maynard also addressed her critics in the clip, noting that it hurts her to be judged by those who disagree with her decision.”

    Then don’t invite us all to your consensual murder. If criticism hurts you, don’t be the poster child for an extremely controversial cause. If everyone was going to say “good for you, you are wonderful” then you would not need to stump for its legalization.

    Did she really expect everyone to say, “Well, by golly, she’s right. Everyone get your doctors to kill you now?”

    Even if the kid is a punk and did everything he could during the stop to provoke this response from the officer, and officer who’s been doing this longer than the punk kid’s been alive needs to know better than to swallow the bait.

    If the kid is the punk the cop says he is, the cop gave him exactly what he wanted. The cop behaves foolishly whether the kid was a punk or a saint.

    Now that is bravery. Godspeed, Ethan.

    It’s worth the follow-up so all who read the initial story at least know he’s back with family.

    Perhaps headlines and the news articles they top should just stick to the known facts.

    Damn those guns. I bet guns made him do it.

    45 years after landing a man on the moon, we now have a space agency any 3rd world dictator would proudly execute for incompetence.

    I never minded ads and the like. Never even wondered if there was a way to disable the commercials and what not at sites like You Tube. I believe in commercials as both a method to inform on your product and as a means of revenue.

    But without an ad blocker, TheBlaze is completely unusable. It is impossible to navigate. I got an ad blocker solely to be able to use this site.

    It’s OK when he belittles women, blacks, and Christians. But pick on those who murder women, blacks, and Christians? Well, UC Berkley just can’t have that.

    Prior to the 16rh Amendment, the Federal Government was paid by states for services it rendered. What’s so radical and unwise about that? Provide a service, get paid.

    All of us who support the Constitution recognize the need for both a strong central government as well as one that knows its place.

    Offer services the states want to buy. Continue the ones they buy, cancel the ones they don’t. The budget problems will solve themselves.

    “Noah” proved the US faith-based audience is largely irrelevant to Hollywood, which is no real surprise given their usual fare.

    Noah was not terribly successful in North America, grossing less than the cost of production, but grossed over twice the American receipts overseas making it an unqualified box office success.

    The lesson Hollywood will take from that is there’s no need to stick to the Biblical narrative when they can exchange God for whatever issue has people’s attention today.

    You know, if you want to have a mercy rule, fine – end that game when it is surpassed. This “pretend you’re not as good as you really are” carp is nonsense. $500 fine? Absurd.

    I’d find another league to play in.

    That guy’s a teddy bear, really. Wouldn’t hurt a fly. Rest easy, NYC, he’ll be back on the force with back pay in no time.

    What MUST be respected, Jim, is our individual rights, among which are freedoms of speech, religion, and association. Gay couples are not denied their right to marry – they can do so by many means, including government agencies that rightly cannot refuse to perform otherwise legal unions. But the rights of this chapel’s owners will be infringed if they are forced to do things they do not wish to.

    We don’t eat frogs and turtles? Since when? I guess kids didn’t go to school in her neighborhood and she never imagined anyone who wasn’t exactly like herself.

    Teaching abstinence is unreasonable and foolish – but we’re pretty sure we can get them to stop eating twinkies.

    You do realize you just used an argument against slavery to support enslaving people, right? I mean your user name implies a certain level of thought, so I’m thinking may your post was meant to be satire as well?

    You say that people must offer their labor to satisfy another’s rights. That to refuse to labor for the benefit of another is a violation of that other person’s rights. Do you know the common word for someone who has no right to refuse to work for the benefit of another person regardless of their own interests? I’ll give you a hint: It begins with S and ends with LAVE.
