As is usually the case the media seems to be working hard to put a narrative on this one way or the other depending on who you ask. The reality of the situation is that if we simply keep to equal protection under the law instead of instituting these ridiculous hate crime laws, these sorts of things probably wouldn’t happen. If they did though it wouldn’t be such a story it would be a small blurb about how some idiot had self inflicted wounds and made a false report.
However because of the constant pressure to push a divide in between races, genders, and those with different sexual preferences, we are all seen as separate groups. This woman is a moron and a criminal who happens to be gay. That is all.

Go back to sleep under your bridge troll. They have no proof of any cheating, if they did they would have taken his titles long ago. You idiots out there just can’t stand the idea of hard work and perseverance paying off. Let’s be honest, a French competition, entered by an American, who has been working hard towards victory for years? Did you have any doubt who would win?

Say what you like but me personally? I find swearing from time to time rather cathartic. And there are times when you speak to a moron of a caliber that just merits bringing out those words that can be referenced simply with one letter. I’m tired of the political correctness that is being thrust upon every member of this country. And I have to wonder just who decided that these were the words we couldn’t say? Where did this all start? For every curse word you have a synonym that means the same thing only with a less “in your face” connotation. Furthermore those used simply as expletives are replaced by other words given the same emphasis and expressing similar feelings, albeit less effectively, in normal everyday conversation.
For those of you saying that you never apologize, in a matter of foreign policy as a representative of the people you would be right. But if this man truly feels he was wrong he should apologize to the people for his comments. However if like me he understands that these reporters and our politicians are all grown up’s who have full fledged freedom of speech and that he did nothing wrong simply stating what he thinks, then he shouldn’t even hint at an apology.

The Libs just can’t stand the idea that this man used what talent he had and simply worked hard to achieve a level of greatness that they can’t conceive of. He isn’t the second coming but he surely is a great role model for the children of today to look up to. They don’t have many any more and it would be nice if they could leave just one alone. If you have the evidence then put it out, if you don’t then shut up and sit down. I’m tired of unfounded accusations and half truths running in the media around the world and becoming more viable than the truth simply because it’s repeated again and again. This idiocy will continue until the masses stop believing it. So wake up out there! Not just in the US but around the world we need to wake up and understand that what the media says isn’t the end all and be all. Think for yourselves! please.

Focus on the important things we’ll have plenty of time to honor Reagan after we fix this mess. He would be appalled at the idea that we discuss naming things after him while people in this country suffer.
July 23, 2012 at 2:45am
@ Quincy in either party that would be nothing short of a miracle, but dare to dream. Personally I’d be happy with a nice group of politicians who simply want to keep their jobs and understand that “We The People” will throw them out if they don’t get to fixing things.

What type of guns do you think were allowed under the second amendment in the time of the founders Jason? They were state of the art, exactly what the military was carrying. And just who was the “militia” back in those times? The “militia” was every able bodied man (adjusted for current times I’m sure women would be included) who was not already serving. The reason for this was to protect our homes and our country in the event of an invasion at the time.
That’s what I have to say about your definitions and supposed logic that wouldn’t pass the muster of an 8th grade critical thinking quiz.
Furthermore all this talk of limiting guns and moving towards less and less is a matter of degrees. Do you think murder will simply stop just because guns are against the law? Do you really believe that criminals and the criminally insane will follow those laws rather than finding some other way of obtaining the weapons they seek? All you will accomplish with legislation in this direction is to make sure that law abiding citizens are always at a disadvantage in these situations. You also seem to over look the canisters that were tossed in. Do you believe that it’s impossible for someone to use a molotov cocktail, or some crudely made bomb to do well over the damage done in even this tragedy? You seem to live in a world of make believe where the government can do anything and do it effectively. Believe what you want, but my government can’t even make a pencil.

You ma’am are a disgrace to everything this country stands for. You can keep fooling yourself but I look forward to the day we put so many things to rights in this country and you nutty liberals threaten to run away to some other country again. I can’t wait to tell you that we’ve already packed your bags and we’ll even chip in on the plane ticket as long as you promise not to come back.
July 22, 2012 at 12:13pm
@ brother. You can keep on babbling about how the other republicans cheated… but you have no proof of anything. You just slam a bunch of unfounded accusations out there hoping to ruin the credibility of everyone but Ron Paul. The problem with this strategy is it doesn’t work on people who are actually paying attention to what’s going on. Therefore it won’t be working here. Have a nice day and just remember to leave the leftist tactics to the left.

McCain helps to circle the wagons around Obama? Are we sure he didn’t lose on purpose in 08? The man is either the biggest fool I’ve seen in a long time or he simply wants what Obama is selling. He wants our country to receive more attacks from these extremists. Those are the only conclusions to be drawn from his actions. Stupidity and incompetence. or another radical in government office. I’m still disgusted that he won his last primary. I guess we’ll have to wait until he goes the way of Robert Bird to get rid of this political hack.

It sounds like a good idea if you only think about it for a few seconds to take guns away. Then no one can get shot right? Wrong. Guns can be obtained through methods that are by no means legal. You only disarm the everyday citizen, not the criminal and certainly not the killer. You’ll make gun crimes easier to perpetrate and you’ll make shootings like this far more deadly in the long run by disarming Americans wholesale.
Next time you take those two seconds and come up with one of these great solutions think a little bit more. It’s what happens with you liberals on every issue. You get a “feeling” and you run with it without a second thought.
Furthermore even in the hypothetical world, say that you were able to get rid of all the guns. People can still kill without them. What’s next? no knives? no blunt objects? Nothing we can’t ingest to avoid poisoning? Going to cut off everyone’s hands to avoid strangling? Where does it end?
At some point people have to grow up and take responsibility for their actions. The reason this happened is not because of a gun, it’s because of the man who used it!

Rubio as with many politicians misses the point. Job #1 is to secure the border. Until that is done there is no point passing any “comprehensive” immigration bill. It has been demonstrated even as far back as the Reagan administration that politicians cannot be trusted to secure the border. We don’t have to as other comments are saying “close down the border entirely”. We need to secure the border so the only people crossing are doing so under the law. When that happens then we can talk about what to do about those already here illegally. What many people leave out of this equation is that they broke the law when they came here.
Further I have no interest in a VP who doesn't understand that. Why are Republicans constantly trying to out-progressive liberals?
July 12, 2012 at 11:50pm
Newt it doesn’t happen a lot but you are horribly wrong here. The Roberts decision was an act of activism. To create new taxing authority for the federal government, is an act of violation against the constitution. He even goes so far as to contradict himself within his decision. This ruling was a disgrace and it will be remembered as such when the history books are written.
July 2, 2012 at 6:06pm
bankrolling of the holocaust I’m assuming? If you don’t have any facts to back up what you’re saying you just sound nuts. have a nice day.
June 29, 2012 at 3:35pm
This whole article is a joke. It’s like telling someone who’s house has just burnt down why it isn’t all that bad. Blaze…go back to the news instead of these lies about Roberts and what he did. Don’t tell me about how the man who helped take away my individual liberty also did me a few favors by not completely shredding the constitution.
June 28, 2012 at 4:09pm
Christian Liberals…I thought that was an oxymoron…
Indeed it is! AND it's shaping up to be the "word" of the day! (See previous page...you are in the VAST majority!)
June 28, 2012 at 11:20am
Those of you saying we need a constitutional amendment that prevents this, I’m sorry but that doesn’t solve it. We need to get rid of these justices who are ok with laws that violate the constitution. We need to fix the school system that raises these morons. This all began when we moved from constitutional law to case law where one bad decision can lead to so many more. If Romney wins and the Republicans do get in hold on, because everything will change. And to you Republicans, be prepared to hear the voice of the American people loud and clear the second you get into office.
These injustices will not stand, mark my words if November does not end this march towards dictatorship, you will see a revolt in this country. I hope and pray this never happens but the American people will not lay down and allow themselves to be conquered with lies!

This should say something along the lines of…
I’m a democrat because I just pay attention to the headlines, I don’t delve any further into things and I don’t think for myself. I’m a democrat because it’s easier to let government do the thinking for me. I’m a democrat because they give me presents while conservatives want me to take care of myself.
The truth is that anyone who thinks like this kid in the ad should be embarrassed to admit being a democrat. These days it has become a party that should have no following. They push lies, ruin economies, and surrender freedoms to a government that is completely out of control.
June 16, 2012 at 4:43pm
Isn’t it amazing how many liberals seem to be found doing something or saying something racist? I mean, if I didn’t know better I would think the democratic party is the party of racists, bigots, and elitists. Good thing the main stream media sets the story straight telling us it’s ok for this hollywood star, that talk show host, and that government official to do or say racist things. If it weren’t for them I wouldn’t know what to believe.
(If you can’t read the sarcasm above for what it is check your pulse, make sure you are actually reading all the words, still don’t get it? then you’re probably a leftist)

Actually he alluded to it quite clearly during an old interview in 2001 actually. He stated that it was a problem that the supreme court never ventured into instances of redistributing wealth. Try researching next time before assuming you are right. It took me almost 5 mins to find the audio but here it is so that you may be enlightened a little to the inequities that make up our current president.
