    Really? The O Admin didn’t think it could trust Congressional committee members who deal with classified information routinely, to keep this secret?

    No way. Stop lying to us.

    It’s an excuse for the pres. to do what he wants, when he wants, outside the rule of law. Just despicable.

    @Dark_Knight: “Lesson 135, ‘If I defend myself I am attacked’ from ACIM” In my opinion that article was written by a malfunctioning mind.”

    A Course in Miracles has teachings that conflict with the Bible. For example:

    A Course in Miracles Vol. 1, p. 88
    “No one is punished for sins, and the Sons of God are not sinners”

    Vol. 1, p. 423
    “The Holy Spirit will never teach you that you are sinful”

    Vol. 1, p. 377
    “When you are tempted to believe that sin is real, remember this: If sin is real, both God and you are not”

    The Bible teaches that sin affects all people.

    Wow. Looks like some people need to chill out. Disclaimer: I have not heard any of GB’s programs over the past few days, so I don’t know specifically what was said; but based on this article:

    - Glenn has talked about influencing culture since leaving Fox. So good for him.
    - Who among us has never said that we hate politicians? Please.
    - We all have gifts and talents. Sounds like Glenn wants to exercise another of his, and that he is tired of politics, and that he even feels that he isn’t making as big a difference as he would like in that arena.
    - There is no one person that we are all going to agree with on every issue. I do think we should keep speaking up about points of difference and strive to see the truth.
    - Also, keep expressing dissatisfaction if the organization isn’t living up to “Truth Lives Here.” But, in my opinion, this needs to be done in the context of what we have known about Glenn over the past years. I don’t think he suddenly turned on everything overnight, which is what one could think from some of the comments here. In other words, keep the powder dry and see how things play out. Have a little faith, keep things in perspective, and continue to seek truth and freedom. If those things are genuinely not found here, that will become more clear over time. I am hoping for the best.

    Two words: Grow up.

    Did those words sting? No doubt. But she could have considered the source: one employee–not the Subway chain, not all employees. All people do not need “sensitivity training.” Those words make me shudder.

    SHe could have asked to speak to that person and addressed the issue directly. She could have, after the initial shock wore off, laughed it off. But NOOOOO. She has to put her overweight condition on worldwide display and try to change an entire company’s policies over one immature, incentive comment. I have zero sympathy for her. And she’s eating too many carbs if she wants to lose weight.

    “Policing” is out of control. We’d better do some serious push-back, as well as being on the offensive, fast.

    The girl looks great to me. I was expecting anorexia, but her arms don’t even look skinny. It’s none of their business what she weighs.

    “…to begin a weight-gaining regiment…” It’s “regimen.” A regiment is a unit of soldiers. *Sigh.*

    Actually, no, it isn’t.
    “[Operation} Wide Receiver actually involved not gun-walking but controlled delivery. Unlike gun-walking, which seems (for good reason) to have been unheard of until Fast & Furious, controlled delivery is a very common law enforcement tactic…In a controlled delivery firearms case, guns are traced in the sense that agents closely and physically follow them…”

    I am a little horrified that an app can tell you where people are, and that people give away that much information about themselves.

    I don’t understand all the comments about idolatry and the like. The pledge says,

    “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

    We pledge allegiance to the flag as a symbol of the U.S., the Republic that is our country. We are saying we are Americans and that our loyalty is to THIS country…and not to the flag of any other country. I can’t believe some of the things I’m reading here. Are you people OK with some other country’s flag flying in our schools and neighborhoods?

    Genes and metabolism aside, complex carbs are a major culprit in weight gain: biscuits, cornbread, bread, cereal, chips, cookies, cake, pasta, etc. I think a lot of people could lose weight by cutting back on those foods while eating a good balance of protein, healthy fats, veggies, and fruits.

    If it were Munchausen’s, Justina would have gotten better after being taken from her parents. If Boston’s were doing the right thing for her, she would be recovering. Instead, she is worse, and some say, dying. Someone needs to step in and stop this, now.

    LibertyIsMyMiddleName: “The ‘environmentalists’ do not love the government. What planet are you from? And no one likes the NSA.”

    They just want the government to control every aspect of our lives in the name of green projects, controlling “climate change,” and saving the environment.

    That is what I see as the point of the story, not that the kid is a daredevil. He actually did us a favor by demonstrating how lax the security is…like Snowden on a smaller scale.

    Here are the requirements for business owners, according to this site:
    http://www.charlestonlaw.net/handgun-carry-laws-south-carolina/

    How do I keep concealed weapons out of my business?

    You must post a sign that is clearly visible from the outside of the building. It must be at least 8 inches wide and at least 12 inches tall. It must state “NO CONCEALED WEAPONS ALLOWED” in black one-inch tall uppercase letters at the bottom of the sign and centered between the lateral edges of the sign. It must show a black silhouette of a handgun inside a circle seven inches in diameter with a diagonal line that runs from the lower left to the upper right at a forty-five degree angle (think Ghostbusters). It must be placed between 40 and 60 inches from the bottom of the building’s entrance door.

    This sign does not have the silhouette of a handgun on it, so it seems invalid to me. I also wonder if the additional comments would render the sign invalid under the law.

    Well, that was disappointing. I saw the headline and thought Coulter was going to tell us why Republicans are pushing for amnesty. Instead, she stated what we already know: that amnesty increases the numbers of Democratic voters. I still have no explanation why Republicans would move in that direction. “Compassion” doesn’t cut it.

    @snooop1e: “What this Pastor did (or paid a firm to do for him) was equivalent to buying his own stock in order to make it appear more valuable than it really is.”
    _____________________________
    I agree with what you’ve said. Quotes form the article seem to indicate that the church thinks this is all done to get its message to more people. That’s classic ends-justify-the-means thinking. It’s what the political Left does all the time, and it has no place in a Christian setting. It doesn’t matter if “it’s done all the time”; it’s dishonest.

    I see GB as an artistic, highly creative person who thinks outside the box and who dresses accordingly. He has said that he is ADD or ADHD, as well. I am amused by what he wears sometimes. I say, just let him be himself. He is doing a world of good, and is not boring in his speech or dress.

    St. Luke the Evangelist was a physician. Are you saying that no Christian should see a doctor? that, therefore, no Christian should be a doctor? that doctors are only for nonbelievers? that there should be no doctors? I don’t understand.
    Colossians 4:14 – “Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.”

    @…GuessWho…
    You seem to believe that if God does not deliver every person from suffering in an equal way, then one can’t attribute any answered prayers to Him. Suffering is the way of this world, and, yes, some people suffer more than others. Some people suffer horribly for long periods of time. As for prayer, some prayers are answered quickly; some are answered, but not in the way we intended, or after much time has passed; and some prayers are never answered. I (and other Christians) don’t think it’s unreasonable to thank God for doing something that people were praying for. And, difficult as it may seem, I (and other Christians) believe in God’s sovereignty as the Creator of the universe (and us) to answer prayer or not and to allow suffering or not, according to His will. You, of course, are free to believe otherwise. But the ideas you present here are not new to those who believe in God and prayer.

    @dublinthewagons: “Point: Glenn likes Walt Disney. They can take my post down or bar me.”
    I have heard GB and crew talk very negatively about the product that modern-day Disney produces. I think what he likes is Walt Disney’s imagination and innovation.

    Pentatonix won the 3rd season of The Sing-Off in 2011. That program features a cappella groups, and Pentatonix is known as an a cappella group; so the headline is accurate. Nowhere in the story does it say this particular song is sung a cappella.

    Real singing, with harmony, without unnecessary gyrations and staging that usually lead to vulgarity. I enjoyed it very much. In my opinion, stories and presentations like this provide a refreshing break from all the doom and gloom.
