    I’m a heck of a lot less concerned about an individual giving money to multiple candidates than I am about the organizations like the Chamber of Commerce and other professional associations. They get to rent all sorts of Congressmen and Senators from both parties to do what’s on their agenda, and screw the average citizen. Here in Idaho, Mike Simpson – a bosom buddy of John Boehner – has ads up that are paid for by the Chamber of Commerce,the American Hospital Association, the American Chemical Association, and God only knows who else. It makes you wonder, as it does me, who the heck he’s representing. It’s why I’m voting against him in the primary and will sit out the general if he survives the challenge.

    So apparently the ‘Republican Insiders’ have decided that they don’t want to win the White House in 2016. Seriously! Other than Florida, where he’s some sort of miracle worker, and possibly Texas, I can’t think of anyplace where he could win. If he becomes the nominee, Hillary – or even Barney Frank – can start measuring the Oval Office for new drapes and furniture! If they think it was bad in 2012 when the Tea Party and other conservative groups stayed home, go and nominate Bush and see what happens.

    Hey lady, if you’re looking for sympathy, it’s in the dictionary between **** and syphilis!

    I personally think that John Kerry should remain in Kiev until the situation is resolved. At least then he won’t be running around the rest of the world screwing up American foreign policy and interests.

    Cut off all welfare payments to them. If they choose not to preserve, protect and defend their nation, they have no claim on the nation’s resources. I wonder how long they get away with collecting a check for praying here. Oh, that’s right, now that we have Obamacare, along with greatly expanded welfare programs, they could probably do quite well here. Maybe they were confused as to where they are.

    So does this mean that we’re no longer allowed to call the Arabs ******** and sand monkeys?

    I’m not a big fan of O’Reilly. He comes off as a pompous know it all who will brook no opposing views. That being said, Geraldo Rivera is just a schmuck. He tries so hard to be all things to all people, just one of the guys, that he comes off as nothing more than a callous opportunist.

    Obama may not be faithful to his union backers – consider how he screwed them with Obamacare – but Harry Reid will always, always, toe the line. He’s from Nevada, after all, where the desert is full of the unmarked graves of those who didn’t do what they were told. Harry Reid owes them big time, and Obama is, after all, a lame duck with almost no political capital left.

    Do people actually believe that rehabilitation is impossible, that a person cannot change their life? How long must a person pay for his or her mistake? Would 10 years be enough punishment? How about 30 years? Should we instead discriminate against them until we bury them? Once a criminal, always one, right? If this is your belief, then there should only be one possible sentence for anyone convicted of any crime, regardless of how minor or serious – life in prison without the possibility of parole, since it is very clear, at least to you people, that they can never be trusted. I read somewhere that about 25% of the adult male population has a record of some sort that’s serious enough that it should disqualify them from being hired to do anything under the reasoning of you people at The Blaze and those of you who are voicing similar opinions. Shame on you people! And the next time you hear of an ex-offender who has a family to support and cannot find a job, remember that it is your prejudice and ignorance that may keep a family in poverty, or cause a man trying to change his ways to commit a crime to support his family.

    Another wimp out by the GOP House! There may be an $800 million cut this year, and perhaps next, but one Congress cannot bind a future Congress. That means the savings is speculative at best. Moreover, if it doesn’t require able bodied individuals to either work, be actively looking for work, or taking part in a work readiness program, then it’s still just a gimme to people who are sucking on the public teat. I would also be concerned about the subsidies given to people who do not farm, and don’t even live on a farm. A large amount of the farm subsidies go to large corporations who sure as hell do not need them. Paying farmers to not grow food that the world needs seems to me to be shameful at best. Haven’t heard whether or not this compromise continues the subsidies for ethanol, which is one of the biggest boondoggles ever. Subsiding the growth of a commodity that you require people to buy is just weird. Then again, the government specializes in weird!

    The Common Core curricula are about one thing only – enriching the ignorant butt brains who developed it. And the Chamber of Commerce has no credibility when they speak about the betterment of the ordinary citizen and his or her children. This is the same organization that wants to create a permanent under class by bringing in millions of foreigners, and legalizing those already here unlawfully, so that there will be such a competition for available jobs that wages will be suppressed. And one has to wonder what the hell they would want with a curriculum that’s proven inaccurate, and not even close to competitive with the curricula of a developed country. Here’s a good rule of thumb. If the Chamber of Commerce is for something, it can’t possibly be good for anyone except a businessman. If they are running ads in support of a candidate, find somebody else to vote for. If you patronize a business that proudly proclaims they are a member, think about taking your business elsewhere. No, I am not a Democrat. I am a proud American who thinks it’s long past time that we took our country back from these parasites in the Chamber, and those from both parties in the Congress.

    Another case of people being offended when they don’t have a dog in the fight. If Coca Cola did it with malice, in order to discriminate against gays, then I could agree with the uproar. But how do they prove they were damaged in some way? Poor babies!

    The solution is to loan the money to the states, so that it must be paid back. Condition it on the recipient doing volunteer work for at least 20 hours a week, cleaning up parks, roadways, washing fire trucks and police vehicles, that sort of thing. This will give a sense of self worth to the individual who really cannot find a job, and will also have the effect of getting the deadbeats off the dole and getting a job. There are a lot of people who are double dipping. They collect unemployment, food stamps, etc., while working off the books. If the Democrats insist on a no strings attached extension of unemployment benefits, the GOP should require a two for one cut in other discretionary spending programs to pay for it. Let the Democrats choose where. They’re more than happy to give away somebody else’s money in order to continue to buy votes.

    I wonder if he would have still been suspended if he was a week away from his 21st birthday, or perhaps a day, or even a month. Just what is the magic of numbers. They said it had nothing to do with insurance, which I don’t think is right, but I do get it. It’s amazing that at the age of 20, this man could be a corpsman or medic in Afghanistan, taking fire, and saving lives. Yet he’s somehow too young to save a life back in the community? I don’t get it. I also think this guy, and every other volunteer paramedic, fire fighter, or police officer, should hang it up and let the fat a*s rule making supervisors do the job according to their book of rules. I guess it’s just more proof that no good deed ever goes unpunished!

    Every day the established political class, both Democrat and GOP, demonstrate that they are out only for themselves and those who rent their votes to gain an advantage over the average, hard working, tax paying, patriotic citizen. What’s more, the GOP and the Chamber of Commerce want to spend whatever it takes to defeat the Tea Party because they will not drink the Kool Aid and toe the party line of more government and less accountability to the people who voted for them. Moreover, they think that those of use who do not like the status quo are going to turn out and vote for them because we will have no place else to go. They are so wrong, and are about to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The leadership of the GOP does not represent the interests of the average American any more than the Democrats. Both parties are just two sides of the same coin. They simply pander to far different constituencies.

    I’ve always wondered what the difference a year makes, or perhaps a day. If this kid was nearly 18, would it still be newsworthy? And isn’t an 18 year old still a teenager? If 17 is too young to be reporting news, why do we let 17 year old ‘kids’ join the military, give them a gun, and tell them to go forth and do battle on behalf of your people and country? Come to think of it, if a kid is old enough to die in a war at 17, or 18, or 19, or even 20, why isn’t he old enough to buy a drink, smoke a cigarette, or buy a gun, or vote – the 17 year old?

    MURDER is the killing of one human being by another, while CANICIDE is the killing of a dog that is not euthanasia. This is tragic, and I hope they catch the psychopathic deviate who is responsible for it and puts him or her away for a very long time.

    This guy was about to cheapen the remaining less than 50% of heterosexual marriages that haven’t yet been dissolved by divorce or annulment. How dare he want to solemnize a relationship he had for the past 12 years, which is a hell of a lot longer than most marriages today last. I’m frankly astonished at the hypocrisy of some of the comments here. Those of you who presume to speak on behalf of God, or want to quote Leviticus to condemn him, should consider a few basic thoughts. If he was born gay, then it follows that God wanted him to be that way, since God cannot make a mistake, or can He? If he chose to be gay, can any of you pinpoint the date and time when you made the decision to be straight? Finally, if we are to condemn him based on the Bible, then when do we line up to stone the adulterers who were in straight marriages, got divorced and either remarried or have sex outside of the bonds of marriage? When do we condemn those who are eating pork, or mixing meat and dairy, or taking the Lord’s name in vain, or are wearing a cotton/polyester blend shirt or pants?

    In order to not extend marital benefits to same sex couples in the Oklahoma National Guard, the governor actually ended all marital benefits in the Guard. Seems like an excellent decision on her part as far as I’m concerned. She did the right thing for the wrong reason. We need that sort of equality in our laws today. Let’s discriminate against everyone for some inane reason!

    Props to MSNBC for hiring the handicapped!

    Raise fees and reform programs in order to spend more money? Sounds like a very bad deal to me, since we will still be borrowing more money than we have coming in. How about you raise the fees, get rid of programs that don’t work or cost too much, and put the money towards paying down our debt? I used to support Paul Ryan, but I wouldn’t vote for him for dog catcher anymore. It’s starting to become even clearer that there’s no significant difference between the Dems and the GOP. They just pander to different special interest groups. Neither represents the interests of their constituents.
