What kind of douche bag would actually think that is appropriate to compare his experience with 1959 Alabama. He has NO idea what true discrimination is! For him to actually make the claim that he felt “discriminated against.”
NEWS FLASH, YOU INDECENT JACK ASS!!!!!!
You were born as a male and you made the choice to live your life as a female! Stating that you are female does not make it so!
YOU MADE THE CHOICE!!!!!
Blacks didn’t have a choice you insensitive *****!!

Sounds like real news to me! I’m a 24 year old male and I can testify that it is very difficult to wait until marriage but it’s something that is really important to me as well. We need more stories like this so that the rest of us aren’t meant to feel like outcasts because of our choices. I say good for her and I really wish more people would follow that example and take sex a little more seriously than they do now.

I love to see so many lemmings…….erm……..individuals standing up for justice and being true non-conformists. It’s extraordinarily ironic how impressionable young minds, such as college students, really have mistakenly convinced themselves that to be a Liberal is to be a true individual when they engage in these group-think activities that are void of any reason or rationalism. It’s truly a pity to see so many in my generation latch on to meaningless movements that aren’t going to take them anywhere nor are they going to solve any problems. Most of them have no idea why they are there, don’t believe they need a valid reason, and are insistent on making themselves feel more relevant by imitating and regurgitating any words or actions that have been prepared for them by their professors. Yeah, true American Individualism.

Someone should revoke the Nobel Peace Prize from President Obama for allowing a man like Van Jones to enter into the highest office of government in this country. I’m sick and tired of all of the lies that this man continuously touts and I do not know how he sleeps at night knowing that his simple rhetoric is causing chaos throughout the country. Instead of holding himself accountable, he blames the exact people who are trying to save this country. Basic difference between these protesters and the tea party: the tea party wants to save this country and build it up and the liberal fascists that are storming Wall Street want to destroy the country and its economy and build it up in their own image. We have the responsibility as Americans to reject this vile hatred because this country has never accomplished anything through the condoning of mindless insurrection. George Washington once said that ultimately the truth will prevail even if it pains it to bring it to light. These people will discover what truth is whether they like it or not and they’re going to destroy their souls in the process. I choose to be on that side of the truth because the truth has no agenda and it is so much more powerful than the message of hatred and destruction that is coming from people like Van Jones. He is a seriously misguided individual and he will be held accountable for the lies and half-truths that he has told in order to deliberately spread violence and chaos across the nation.
He's called for violence and now this? The feds cannot CONTROL every facet of our lives and still create an atmosphere for the American dream.

That’s an extremely counterproductive suggestion. The Founders were appalled by what happened in France because nothing justifies sacrificing the civility of our society in order to carry out an offensive revolution such as the French Revolution. The American Revolution, on the other hand, was a defensive revolution which was very different because the colonists just wanted to be left alone and they were compelled to defend themselves after declaring their independence.

I really do wonder how stupid these reporters must be to think that this type of rhetoric is actually helping their ratings even as their ratings and their viewership continues to plummet. I guess it’s a good thing that we have a place like the blaze to ridicule their seriously misguided way of thinking.

This is why we shouldn’t give Nobel Prizes to certain people. The thought of their intellectualism far out-reaching the rest of us normal folk just seems, in their mind, to give them the license to attempt to “change our history, change our traditions, and change our conversations.” Somehow, regardless of how far from reason their statements may be rooted, they somehow think that they can actually persuade the public to jump off of the same bridge in which they are headed. I propose that the public begin to boycott Paul Krugman not only for his arrogant dexterity but for his misguided Keynesian ideology that has continued to influence public policy and take this country in the wrong direction. We should not be giving Nobel prizes to people that think that continual public deficit spending is the solution to shrinking the deficit. Oh, have I said too much?;);)
Krugman proves a cult of antisemitism lies under the Nobel foundation. Akmedimijad must now approve every medal, as the recipients of these awards are in the pocket of Iran...the principle buyer of military assets from the subsidiaries of Nobel.

I just graduated from college and I want to declare my independence from the social security system. I know I will not receive any benefits from it when I retire even if I start paying into it now. It infuriates me that I am required to pay into it for no reason. I watched an interview of Rick Perry and he alluded to the option of allowing the states to opt out of social security. If he intends on fulfilling that promise, I am voting for him. My generation needs to wake up to the reality that our future is being taken from us by force and coercion and it is absolutely unacceptable and unAmerican.
Hopefully, your generation isn't too late in waking up! I also hope your friends feel the same way, get their heads out of the sand, do what you have to do to get them to listen to you. Good luck!
Welcome to the madness young man, glad to have you on board. It sounds like you have a braian and have questioned boldly all of the crap that most young people just swallow. It is normal and good for the young to be idealistic, it keeps the world fresh and ever- improving. Eventually reality set's in and most people see that we are in big trouble. We lose more freedoms everyday, the Governement gets bigger and stronger, we are all becoming basically slaves. Slaves to the government and global corporations with all the neccessities of life being provided to keep the slaves healthy and productive. But we are not free, we are slaves! Challenge it all my young friend, protect what is left of our freedoms.
I just hope for your sakes.. that he isn't another Obama, cause he loves open borders... you know letting in all those illegals from south of the border in.. the good ones and the bad ones, you know the drug runners and drug kings..and the guns and the raping.. you bet ya I want Perry like I want hemmroids!
I am in my mid-30's and I am willing to opt out as well. Keep the money that I've paid in over nearly 2 decades of working, but don't take another penny and don't worry about giving me any 30 years down the road. We are the generation that must be willing to sacrifice in order to save our children from this unsustainable and unconstitutional program. Let people be responsible for themselves and their own retirement. People used to turn to family and church, and then government stepped in forcing me to provide for others when charity should be a choice.
As a mom to two young girls I know that the system as it exists today will not be there for them, and I would hate to see them waste many years paying into a scheme that I knew about just because others claim they are entitled to getting their money back from a system that we all knew was broke.

I agree! We need a leader that holds themselves accountable to a higher power and doesn’t rely on some misdirected mandate where he believes that he answers to God some day for the decisions that he makes as a public official.

“The Justice Department says a state cannot set its own immigration policy and cannot pass laws that conflict with federal immigration laws.”
YES WE CAN!!!!!!

I find it fascinating that all of the groups that he collaborates with require some sort of government and/or “special” funding (aka Soros) in order to be able to operate. It really shows who the winners and losers are because everything from talk radio to fox news to GBTV shows how much more successful they are by using the free market for their financing. All of these progressive groups receive billions of dollars from “special” funding and yet fox news is still more successful than them. I guess it’s because conservatives have something worth fighting for unlike these neo-marxists.

I find it a bit troubling that a former president of the United States of America disregards the fine print at the end of the fourteenth amendment. Section 5 states: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. Which means, the president DOES NOT have the authority to invoke the fourteenth amendment without congressional approval. What’s the matter with these people? Makes you wonder if they ever actually read the constitution before they opened their big fat mouths. Unacceptable!!

This is an amazing example of ignorance. For those of you who may not be aware of this, the Lutheran Church has multiple synods, all of which have different stances on different issues. I knew that Michelle Bachmann was from the Wisconsin Synod a while ago and that synod still does not permit women to vote in their church. Pretty impressive that she has managed to overcome much of those obstacles. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America is the most “progressive” synod that permits homosexual ministers to serve and is moving in the direction of permitting gay marriage if they haven’t done that already. The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, which is the synod I am a part of, is the happy medium between the two that is far more accepting as far as scripture is concerned. It’s rather disheartening to listen to supposed Christians on this website condemn an entire denomination that they know nothing about and disregard the absolute fact that there would NOT be any other Christian denomination alive today if it had not been for Martin Luther. Despite his absolute imperfections towards the end of his life, he was one of the first theologians to provide a logical argument for scripture and unravel the unfortunate centralization of the Roman Catholic Church that was creating more problems than solving. This is not a statement against Catholics, it is just historically accurate and it is time for us to unite for a common cause of liberty through the will of God.
And I might remind you of the fact that there would NOT be any other Christian denomination alive today if it had not been for the Catholic Church!.The claim that he was one of the first theologians to provide a logical argument for scripture is only true if you consider the fact that he included his own words into it. There is no denying he added the word "alone" into Romans 3:28! It's not there in the original Greek! There is no denying this fact. This particular verse that Luther made up is the cornerstone of your faith. This is not a statement against Protestants, it is just historically accurate and it is time for us to unite for a common cause of liberty through the will of God.
