    After the Boston Marathon bombing, this find is even more emotional.

    Won’t their proximity disrupt the space-time continuum?

    Glenn–You aren’t planting an apple tree, but a whole orchard!

    Independence seems to be a nexus of all your ideas in one place so people and ideas can bounce around as your community refuses to bow to progressivism and instead spins itself out of the current dead-end world of politics, power grabs, and inflammatory news. Ambitious is an understatement, but if you truly want to bend the arc of history, no half measures of poorly formed and distant communities can do it. Independence is your all or nothing stab at shaping culture from hubs of creativity, invention, and innovation. This will be an amazing attempt to create a pivot point in American thought with an entire power structure ready to crush you. You really do understand, “Go big or go home.”

    Tried on Firefox and got “Are you sure you want to do this?” page with no way to give an indication of my answer.

    It looked fake–the kid’s sitting posture, the run toward the mom with camera filming grass, the eagle’s too easy of a shift to carrying the kid’s weight, but the way they made the “kid’s” legs move as it fell was so realistic, they almost had me.

    Why does Beck succeed? He radiates this: “Encouragement is oxygen of the soul.”

    When the questions all boiled down to, “Mr. Romney, we think you screwed up, don’t you?” it wasn’t good journalism, it was a malicious attempt to make him the bad guy of the day.

    As a 1982 graduate of a journalism school that valued objectivity in reporting first and foremost, I’m happy to see The Blaze and Glenn Beck turn the current media tide back to good reporting, transparent commentary, and shows that value American Exceptionalism. I hope the network soon opens doors to nation-wide, local stations or news centers that give voice to conservative America and show what really goes on in this country instead of what MSM covers.

    Narcissist in withdraw. Have you seen how tired and unengaged he looks in his speeches now? When narcissists start to lose power, prestige, or popularity, they either get more extreme or withdraw–both options come with much blame shifting. Neither one is good in a president.

    David Barton & Throckmorton disagree. Each interpret history differently. Which one helped, in essence, ban a book & seems OK with that?

    As the 24/7 care giver for my 83 year old mom who has Alzheimer’s and dementia and who is still very physically healthy, I found the article disturbing in its portrayal. It assumes caring is a horrible experience, akin losing who and what you are or cutting off a piece of yourself to care for a parent. It was like reading about the grueling horror of battle for military veterans and not focusing on their courage, resiliency, and perseverance. It was like reading only about the traumatic injuries an EMT or ER doctor encounters and not honoring the necessary work they do.

    I’ve been the architect of almost all of my mother’s choices for a over 3 years now since leaving her for more than a few minutes can result in security, sanitation, or safety issues in our household. Fortunately, husband’s wage and love have helped me be a “stay-at-home-caregiving-daughter.” It is my my full-time job.
    Here are a few things caregiving has given me:
    Powerful understanding of what it means to lean on God.
    Better sense of unconditional love
    Greater freedom from unrealistic expectation in relationships
    Courage to face what at first seems hopeless
    Resiliency in adversity, as in caregiving in a long-term illness
    Humor in the face of excruciating emotional difficulty
    Maturity, strength of character, perseverance, stronger marriage…

    If AARP wants to really help caregivers, they might want to focus more on the courage, personal growth, and depth of character such sacrifice creat

    The techniques in the book sound a lot like how narcissists use rationalization and their made up narratives and euphemisms to keep their little world intact. (According to the DSM-IV*, rationalization occurs “when the individual deals with emotional conflict or internal or external stressors by concealing the true motivations for his or her own thoughts, actions, or feelings through the elaboration of reassuring or self serving but incorrect explanations.”)

    YES!!! That’s what ownership of your own self defense looks like.

    As the 24/7 caregiver for my mom, humor is much needed to cope, but not humor that demonstrates how vulnerable Alzheimer’s patients are to abuse, including financial abuse.
