When I lived in Australia I was walking from the train station to work one morning and noticed the local cop shop had their flag upside down. I went inside, and told them (nicely). They were embarrassed and had it correct quick-smart. So, these things happen.

I do not blame the children totally; they were encouraged to climb on it by their parents.

“Fear is the opposite of love.”
I don’t fear them. I just don’t like them.

Man, there are a lot of people in Washington, D.C. with a lot of time on their hands.
What’s that old saying? Satan finds work for idle hands or something like that.

That’s what I think, too. I’d take Israel’s intelligence about Iran over ours any day. After all, Israel has the biggest dog in this fight – they’ve been the named target for any bomb Iran gets. You know damn well Israel knows every move Iran is making.

Netanyahu is a voice in the wilderness, just as Churchill was in the 1930′s in his attempt to warn Britain and the world the dangers of the rising Nazi Party.

“Beck made it clear that America will not go to war with all Muslims, just as we did not go to war with all Germans. But just as Nazis were a “plague” who killed their own people, Beck said, so is the Islamic State.”
Fair enough. However, the citizens of those countries where the Islamic State has gained control do not rise up and fight them along side of us, then we are not responsible for what happens to you in the course of the fighting we engage in against the enemy. Lead, follow, or get out of the way. if you just sit there and your house gets blown up…well…

I hope he gets the job. My sixteen year-old niece works for Chik-fil-a and she loves her job and co-workers.

No one said everyone down here in the Bible belt was a prude; we just mind our business about it and don’t feel the need to broadcast it for the whole wide world to see. lol
That being said, I have no interest whatsoever in the book or the movie. I guess I’m a prude.
My understanding of the work "prude" is that is comes from "prudent", defined as "acting with or showing care and thought for the future."
Yep, I'm a prude.

One evening my family and I went out to eat at our favorite restaurant. As in times past, while waiting for our food, all three kids and the wife are looking down at their “screens.” A little fed up, I took my own phone out and took a picture of them. Later, I showed the picture to them and told them how much I loved talking to them before the meal. They were actually embarrassed. Now, dinner time, at home or out, is no-phone time. They get left in the rooms or the car.
Dinner at the table every night no TV,phones,pods or pads.
Two weeks every summer no TV,txt ing,gaming no gadgets what's so ever.
The kids dread it but by day three or four they get used to it.
My favorite two weeks of the year.
As much as the phone culture bugs the heck out of me, maybe this guy sees whales all the time because he is on the water a lot, and maybe it was important, maybe he got a text about someone in need....and maybe not... Im must saying, we assume too much....
Good, more people need to do just that. My girl recently got her new android and does little more than text or take selfies: ugh.
I take my boat out all the time to simply read a book on the water. While I disagree with his politics, a perfect Sunday for me is getting off the dock by 10am, anchoring somewhere in or just off the inter-coastal, pulling out Jack London's Tales of the Fish Patrol, and ignoring the rest of the world. Likely including several appearances made by pods of passing dolphins.
If this guy enjoying reading The Blaze on his cell phone one afternoon is a sign of the times, I suppose me reading a book on my boat is a sign of times past.
Who knows, maybe he was reading an electronic version of Moby Dick and this whale was simply providing him the perfect environment for such a read.

I voted “sure, why not?” because it is free enterprise. However, free enterprise also means customers don’t have to buy his product, either. I wonder if revealing this personal detail may make sales go down.

First thing I thought of, too. These are the type of people who find discrimination in EVERYTHING.

It’s just Hillary Clinton getting some campaign donations.

Now I’m not overly religious or anything not a biblical scholar, but doesn’t scripture say something along the lines that those without the mark of the beast would not be able to participate in the economic life of their community. No purchasing of goods at market, no selling, no job, etc.? It sounds like to me that this technology will soon be used for the purposes of trade, and if you refuse to get the chip, you’re fired and you can’t buy/sell anything. This is a bit whack to me.
Perfectly described in scripture. Oh yes its coming. They will have to kill me. But others will be sheep led to slaughter.
couldnt the same thing be said of the $ lets see you trade a rock for food at the store

Well, any chance he had of being elected President just fell down with him. Stuff like this is gold…Ford falling down the stairs of Air Force One, Bob Dole falling over that rail, etc. It will be played over and over and over again.

Let’s just hope his bite is as good as his jib. No doubt now he will be on the ACLU radar this Christmas.

Ohhh noooo! $235 million dollars!!!! Please…how many billions do they pi*ss away everyday for things that are not worth spending a dime on? What is a quarter million over a decade for human lives? A drop in the bucket.

I’ve seen it in Sydney, Australia. There are entire suburbs of Muslims that you would not want to go to unless you are just passing through and not planning on stopping. These too are not formal “no-go” zones, but are implied as such. Bankstown, Auburn, Lidcombe, Punchbowl, Yenorra to name a few…
I worked at a state office in Bankstown and the two blocks I had to walk from the train station to the office was the worst part of the day.

Yep…if you want some good eats, then come on down to to my home of Louisiana! My father-in-law from Australia swears he gains twenty pounds every time he visits my family!

Ferguson and Garner has police departments around the country scared to death. That’s a shame.
