    Stupid to copy Michelle Obama’s words. Stupid to make a big deal of it. Everyone happy?

    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?

    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).

    “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?

    Bingo.

    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?

    When my 90 pound daughter shoots a 30-06, she gets a big grin on her face!

    The killer contributed to the demonization of Muslims.

    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.
