No, but trump declining the nomination would go a long ways for me.

Yeah. Guy was acting in a weird provocative manner. I wouldn’t do that, would you? Why?

Sounds like she learned her lesson…I sure feel better now…

Carly on the ticket would be a nod to sanity, but I can’t see Trump offering or her accepting after the nastiness between them.

Exactly. The pentagon is ignoring delusional behavior. Transgenders face challenges that I’m glad I don’t, and I don’t wish them any ill. But I don’t believe the military is a good fit for anyone whose feelings are at odds with what they can see with their own eyes.

“Only a person’s qualifications should matter.” Am I disqualified if I think I am a hamster?
Mental disorders used be disqualifying, so how can these schizophrenics be qualified?

Not unexpected, but sheesh. I’m guessing it is mostly just a bone thrown to Christie, but won’t go anywhere. Such a weird election. Even as I type this I’m thinking “I really, really don’t like Christie–but, hmm, I actually may like him better than Trump–who I really, really, really don’t like–but, uhh, Clinton is sooooo inconceivably bad…aaaargh”

These extreme thought experiments can easily be turned around. If the child were 2 years old, would anyone argue that it was okay to cut them into pieces and toss them (or provide the pieces to others for experimentation)? I understand your honest question. My honest answer is that I usually rely on my conscience to sort these things out–informed by reason, but not paralyzed by arguments put forward by people who seem to me to be trying to extinguish their own consciences.

Yes, it “could” have read your way, but the way it was written by the Blaze is just as valid, so your “should” assertion is not factual, but only your opinion. If you want to argue that the Court’s discovery (43 years ago) in the in the penumbra of the 14th Amendment of a Constitutional right theretofore unknown, permitting one person to end the life of another for convenience (or as I gather you believe, simply to prevent a lifeless tissue mass, albeit maybe one with a beating heart and sensory perception, from becoming alive following birth) is on the same legal and moral footing as the right to bear arms acknowledged near the founding and enshrined by legislative process as a right not to be infringed, make that argument directly. If you can make that case, then your arguments for consistency and how the headline should read will be more interesting and compelling. Otherwise, the story as presented by the Blaze (that Justice Breyer may have given gun rights advocates some “ammunition” for future court battles) is more interesting to me.

I heard Glen’s interview of a victim this morning. While I wish him the best, something he said bothered me. He said he lay on the floor for 20 minutes with his head under a sofa before the shooter actually shot him. I have to wonder what would have happened if a half dozen of the (scores? hundreds?) of patrons had rushed the shooter rather than everyone just waiting their turn to get shot. Armed patrons could have made a difference, but even unarmed ones with a different mindset might have as well. If this happened in a biker bar, I don’t think 50 would have been killed before the shooter was stopped. It seems like all of us Americans need to adopt a “let’s roll” attitude (and carry if we are so inclined).
300 to 1. Spartans they were not.
Yet on a train to Paris, it was 3 to 1 and they beat the crap out of that Jihadi.
“Truth to a Liberal is as Salt to a Slug”
Hear you Tin and agree. I get that not everyone is cut the same way though for whatever reason. Main thing is that they don't try to stop others from being equipped to save them just because they can't see saving themselves.
Not Spartans, though they enjoyed a similar activity as the Spartans...

“We will lose our freedoms in this country — including all of the Bill of Rights — if we don’t robustly defend the separation of powers, and we’re going to fight for those rights on behalf of our citizens, so that we remain a self-governing people,” Ryan said.
Right. Will a 100-word summary fix this? How about withholding funding?
How about term limits and then send the entirety of the political dependent class home for some private sector work? As a politician, he is lying. The only thing under their job description currently is lying and blowing other people's money. Nothing else, unless committee steering for personal gain counts. Uber back home and get a job.
Withholding funding and impeachment are the proper checks and balances set forth in the Constitution.
The "high crimes and misdemeanors" terminology used in the Constitution does not mean "misdemeanors" in the way we usually think of it. Rather, a "misdemeanor" is not doing your job according to its requirements. Like, say, refusing to enforce a law when you are president.
Ryan and company will fold in a heart beat.
What's next after Trump loses?
We can't anger the voters or we might lose the house or senate!
We can't anger the voters or we won't have a chance on 2020!
The last sentence in those 100 words will read, "please reference our department's 27,589 page document outlining these new regulations".
Sure enough more election year lip service . . . 7 years too late.
1. term limits on all elected positions. 2 cycles max.
2. Term limits on all federal job positions: 10 years max.
3. Return the Senate to its original composition: appointment (and recall) at the whim of the state legislature).
4. withold all pay of legislature for each year the budget is not balanced.
How about a requirement for you idiots to actual read the bills your voting on?
This is nothing but pandering. 100-word summary... Please. The spin in your 100-word summary isn't going to accurately portray anything about your new regulations.
You want to play games? Here: "Book reports" on a bill for anyone voting on the bill. And you will be graded for accuracy.
Why are they talking about themselves in the third person? Don't they get that they are Congress, who abdicated their throne and yielded to the executive? Repeal the APA, then I'll take you seriously!
If we had term limits they wouldn't spend 99% of their time getting re-elected and maybe just maybe they would actually begib to do their job as defined by the Constitution

Lib: I spotted a little typo in your post. Should have said: “Perhaps it was a relic of a time when Presidents were more rational and polite (and moral, and grown-up, and patriotic, and respectable, and humble, and law-abiding and honorable, and intelligent, and etc.)” You are welcome.

Why is she required to celebrate the gay lifestyle and tweet support for it? Why the demand for affirmation from EVERYONE that the lifestyle is okay? Why all the insecurity?

The killer contributed to the demonization of Muslims.
The Regressive Left will do mental gymnastics to never acknowledge this fact. The left should be screaming the loudest against this threat, from Islam, to our way of life here in America, considering what a human rights nightmare much of the Islamic world is
You mean like with, Adam Lanza, Dylann Roof, James Holmes…all who happen to be white males, and by your standards demonize all white males ( oh I forgot, white people don't count)? But hey, you don’t hear Trump calling for a ban on white males in this country. Hmmm, I wonder why so much vitriol is focused on one particular group, when it is obvious that particular group is not the only one who is at fault. One could blame it on racism, but I blame it on republican idiocy.

I don’t believe Emmy would ever say anything as ignorant and selfish as what you just said. If she were to meet you I believe she would love you and not wish you dead. Think about it.
