They were both part of a generation that came BEFORE the “Greatest Generation”… they were the 30 somethings that stayed on the home front during WW II and made sure their was a country to come home too…sacrificing their sons and daughters after having put those Values and Morals into them that we now credit with making them the “Greatest Generation..”
They lived through the “Roaring 20′s” and the “Great Depression” 30′s…they knew both affluence and deep poverty…honor and courage, commitment and responsibility, vice and morality….
There will never be another generation like them or their children that sacrificed so much for others simply because “it was the Right thing to do,” despite national or international politics. A time when Common Sense was in great plenty unlike today when it is uncommon and a rarity. A time when political affiliation came AFTER loyalty, respect, and duty to the Country and the Country’s GOD: the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but also of Ishmael and Esau. A time when it was IMPLIED that you treat others BETTER than they treat you and ANYONE could discipline an unruly child without fear of lawsuit; in fact it was encourage by the parents and REPEATED once you got home, often with greater force to the seat of your pants and NOBODY expected anything else.
Children will only do 1/2 of what they see you do RIGHT but 10X what they see you do WRONG. We reap what we sow, if anything, that is their legacy.

spoken like a true JACK@$$ that does not have a personal relationship with any true LEO’s…other than those months you must have spent up in NYC with the Occupy terrorists or your Black Block buddies…
you also probably think when a woman says “No” she really means yes just because of the tight skirt or blouse she has on…
despite what the lefties or the militant anarchists hiding out as “libertarians” think… more LEO’s are like Walker – Texas Ranger than Eastwood Dirty Harry..more Andy Griffith than Don Knox….more Columbo than Segal…..

This rifle is awesome….the price is a bit high, starting at $1395. That pic doesn’t look like an AR-15..maybe an AR-10…unless someone is putting a 20″ barrel on the thing….but that doesn’t matter really…
Still FUNNY as H#!! …can I get a volume discount if I order one for every person in my household?
Get a good Red Dot and a light/laser combo on the rail and let’s go hunting boys…and does it come in .308 or .300 Blackout??
TROO took my thought as well….was expecting someone to have washed it in pigs blood or something…which would also be HYSTERICAL…..

33 to open the Convention but even then 38 States to ratify any Amendments to the Constitution…
kinda interesting that the GOP controls 33 State Legislatures and Governorships yet the Convention has not bee called yet…RINO’s anyone?? Progressive SCUM GOP establishment maybe??
People we need to work locally first. It might take another decade of elections but we will win if we get the City, County, and State governments on the RIGHT side of things… GOD’s side…Liberty’s side…Freedom’s side…

A Constitutional Convention can ONLY be held in one of two ways, either Congress calls one or the States call one.
EITHER WAY…Congress or the States…there MUST be a declaration to the SPECIFIC nature of the Convention and the SPECIFIC modification to the Constitution that are being sought.
Opening a Constitutional Convention DOES NOT make the whole Constitution up for Amendment and change, ONLY SPECIFICALLY what the Convention was called to address.
That is why the State’s Rights Convention movement has been so important. There are now 14 States I believe that have passed legislation calling for a Constitutional Convention, we need 33 to make it happen. EACH of those States HAD TO provide in their legislation the EXACT changes that they wished to address in the Convention. Most of the States simply copied each other so that ONLY certain aspects of the Constitution are to be addressed.
1 – Term Limits for Congress and some even on Federal judges, including SCOTUS.
2 – State Nullification and Review of Congress and Federal legislation and regulation
3 – Removal of Federal jurisdiction on Marriage, Abortion, and Drug policy
4 – Balanced Budget for Federal

I was going to say the same thing…Congress will vote immediately to say No…Obama will SPECIFICALLY wait until 9/11/15 to VETO Congress. Then we get to see if the leadership has a spine as to whether they even ATTEMPT the Override Vote or if they just walk away with their tail between their legs ( or cheering since they can now return home and say “I voted against it but that meanie poopie head Obama VETO’d me. I am your guy to fight him even though I whimpered and cried after the veto, while silently cheering because I REALLY wanted this deal.”
 September 1, 2015 at 4:57pm
You are correct to a degree and so is BMc…
To be fair, BMc was speaking of a specific situation in which Jesus, AFTER the Resurrection gave the Apostles their Great Commission.
Absolution does REQUIRE not just Repentance but ALSO Restitution. In order for you to be Forgiven of your sins, you must ASK the offended party for their forgiveness (regardless if they provide it or not) and then seek to make restitution for your offense and THEN GOD will absolve you of the sin.
Too often today, “Christians” walk about with their nice bumper sticker mentality “Not perfect but forgiven” as they act vulgar in both body, mind, and spirit. They “go to church” on Sunday and say “well I am a sinner but I am saved” and then turn around while in the parking lot and get right back to their sinning ways. They ARE NOT Forgiven but they have not provided RESTITUTION for their sins NOR have they REPENTED of those sins. To continue to KNOWINGLY transgress against GOD and not at least STRIVE to change your sinful nature and actions, NO MATTER which Bible version you read or which building you walk into, STILL means you are not SAVED….regardless of denomination of worship or what your pastor or mommy told you.
At least the act of attending Confession and communicating your sins to a priest shows that Catholics are ATTEMPTING to change their nature and seeking Forgiveness for those sins from GOD, through Christ, especially that of PRIDE!
 September 1, 2015 at 4:07pm
I know you are smart and a smart@$$ but that is besides the point…that isn’t what this is about and you know it. Nobody, ESPECIALLY the RCC, says that the priest is forgiving the sins…the priest is simply the intermediary, the man that you humble yourself to and confess (speak) your sins too… They are then received by GOD and Christ and the priest helps us with our Repentance and acts of Contrition.
It follows directly from the Bible and the words of Jesus himself…
Peter’s Confession of Christ Matthew 16:18-20
…18″I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. 19″I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” 20Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
This whole “Catholics don’t believe in Jesus but in a man” line is just intellectually dishonest. Catholics believe that the Pope is the duly appointed (by GOD) successor to Peter and the priests, Bishops, and Cardinals are the successors to the Apostles. They also believe that these leaders, just as Jesus said, have the ability to intercede on our behalf with Jesus and GOD or to “bind” us if they feel that we are NOT truly in our hearts seeking forgiveness, repentance, and are HONESTLY sorry for our sins. Again, JUST AS JESUS said 1980 years ago.
 August 31, 2015 at 3:23pm
Oh, sorry, you were serious?? Wow…wait….you are serious?
You do know that the most sold book on the planet is STILL the Christian Bible and has been for about 100 years now? You do know that the most DOWNLOADED category of apps for ANY platform of smartphone are Christian Bible apps? You do know that Christians log into and are on those apps EVERY Sunday and mostly EVERY day of the week?
The internet and information is the “death of religion” REALLY?? Are you serious?? IT IS THE REBIRTH! Most young people ENGAGE with their faith THROUGH the internet and WITH the use of the technology of the Information Age. There is a HUGE movement of under 35 people to “congregate” together ONLINE instead of in a physical building.
Come on blink, at least do the MINIMUM amount of research before you post ignorant drivel that make us all laugh. Thanks for the laugh though.
Haha - some moron with a confederate flag logo calling someone else ignorant
I take it you own one.
"You do know that the most sold book on the planet is STILL the Christian Bible and has been for about 100 years now?"
And The Big Bang Theory is the most popular comedy on television.
I think you check mated yourself there.
blinknight, with whom you agree, argued that the internet/information is the death of religion. VRW observed that the Bible is still the most sold book on the planet.
You then chimed in that the Big Bang theory is he most popular comedy on TV.
Your statement argues that the internet and information is the death of the Big Bang Theory and that the fact that it is the most popular comedy is irrelevant? Was that your intent?
Or does any random, incoherent and irrelevant statement count as checkmate in your world?
My painfully obvious point of course was that just because something is popular, doesn’t make it good.
The Bible is a book of fairy tales for adults who refuse to grow up.
VRW, just because the bible is the most sold book on the planet does not mean it is read or followed or, especially, true. Many bibles are bought by Christians to give away and send overseas to try to evangelize the "heathens" of the world. How many are used for TP or kindling or simply thrown away is hard to determine.
Bible sales do not equal the popularity of Christianity.
The internet is where religion goes to die. There's a reason that the religious fundamentlists tried to engage in a massive, and illegal, false flag campaign against atheists on Youtube. That reason would be that atheists win by letting theists talk, and responding to it, while theists just attempt to shut down debate.
The 'minimum' amount of research? The younger you are, the more likely you are to be agnostic or atheist. The younger you are, the more likely you are to be connected on the internet. There's a reason the number of people identifying as religious slowly ticks down while the number of people who don't slowly keeps ticking up.
Feel free to check the numbers if you doubt that. If the internet were causing any sort of religious resurgance then the numbers would be backwards from what they are now. What you are seeing is people that are already believers getting together, not new people becoming them because in that regard, you are bleeding people off at a steady rate.
Yes, I'm aware of the popularity of the Bible by the way, I do so wish more people would actually read it and understand the history behind it... It's a really fast way to make them in to atheists.
 August 29, 2015 at 1:22am
Then go Monk. Seriously. Tired of reading all the “vote Trump or you are a GOP stooge for Jeb” type crap comments even though NOBODY but the trolls here like Jeb and you all know it.
Go and stop saying you are leaving every week but still popping into post.
I know you are smart so why the disingenuous comments. Glenn said that ALL the event videos would be available on Monday and possibly FREE as well.
I used to think that people here were truly like our Founders and wanted ALL opinions to be expressed and debated openly and with respect. Since the Ron Pail bots and now Trump bots, the comments have just become idiotic “agree with me or you are a pathetic drone zombie” type comments.
Why are the Progs scared? We are tearing ourselves apart over BLIND faith in a man that admits he BUYS people off to do what he wants? Admits that until 2 months ago he WAS the problem with DC? Admits that he LIKES socialist ideas but just doesn’t think they will work now but would have a few years ago but still says countries that run those socialist programs are doing great?
I don’t get this. If we are all Conservative and libertarians that want The Constitution restored and obeyed then WHY just because we areas at DC are we ABANDONING those beliefs just to WIN with a guy we can’t trust will actual follow through when there ARE men we CAN believe will follow through.
Insanity and desperation have clouded the minds of supposedly “awakened” patriotic people
 August 29, 2015 at 1:07am
Wow b. You are either blind, a liar, or purposely being disingenuous.
Beck admits he has changed opinions, gone from a straight party guy to a Conservative to now more libertarian. Even to the point of being for legalized personal pot use, gay marriage, and other social issues against his faith and beliefs BECAUSE what people do in private is not his business or the governments business.
Yet the moment that Beck says ANYTHING that is against YOUR opinion you call him the “my way or the highway” guy??
When Beck does try and back up his opinion with facts and other experts, YOU and many others on here claim he is PAYING these people to say what he wants.
You are all pathetic. There is an illness in psychiatry called “transference” where you project that which you hate about yourself on someone you don’t agree with. That person becomes the focus of your own conflict and hypocracy and failures and you claim they have done all that you have.
Sure sounds like all the posters that are spouting off with “beck just wants your money”, “beck is for Jeb”, “beck doesn’t get why we like Trump because he is a hypocrite”, or the famous “I am leaving because the Blaze is all liberal hacks and all about stories I don’t like or agree with”. Of course none of you ever leave you just come back in a few days and spout the same comments over and over and over.
Get it over with! Delete your accounts! Piss off then and go rant in your corner and suck your thumb.
Isn’t that like the pot calling the kettle black? You’re acting the same way you’re accusing others of acting like. You’re insulting them, insisting they’re all wrong, and then saying they should all leave because their opinions differ from yours.
I thought this was a comment section, where people could voice their opinions and peacefully debate, no matter how different those opinions may be. Who cares if they think Glenn is a huckster and support Trump for president? If trolls can make comments like “I <3 abortion ur stupid” and not get banned then why can’t they comment too?
When you insult and belittle people just because you don’t agree you’re no better than they are. Glenn is not God; people can think of him however they see fit, and if they think he’s a mega pastor then fine. If you don’t agree with it, just agree to disagree. Insisting you’re the only one allowed to be right is what got us here in the first place.
VRW: Are you Pat or Stu in disguise? While Glenn was off for a month you two clowns killed the network! It was disgraceful how you carried on with your stupid comments about everyone and everything. I'll bet the ratings took a huge dive. I turned you off because I couldn't listen anymore.
a lot of anger on this thread.
people angry at Glenn
people angry at Trump
people angry at the people angry at Trump or Glenn.
strange days afoot.
 August 29, 2015 at 12:49am
Have you not been listening for the last 5 years or so?
Glenn explicitly said about 2 years ago that he was done trying to “save” people and tell them what was going on. He tries and tried for all those years and while millions listened and changed and educated themselves, many many more put their head in the sand and still voted for the D and the R and not the best man with the best character.
He told his audience that he was looking to the future of his soul and his families souls. That he was going in a new direction that MANY would not like and MANY would decry as him being a sell out or a failure or whatever just because he wasn’t only talking about their hot button issue. Glenn said he knew he would be hit in audience and income (funny because he was right on all counts – look at all the people here that claim he is all about the money know or this or that because he voiced his opinion that they don’t share).
Regulars here over the last 5 years are all spouting off because Beck doesn’t like Trump – Really? So for that one thing they spit hate and venom at Glenn worse than they ever did at Obama. Or for Beck talking about compassion for young children dragged across the border by their parents. Even Becks attempt to be more faith based and follow the path of MLK.
It is pathetic the way long posters and listener are now turning into the WORST Haters of all – even worse than HuffPo or Kos or the trolls. Sad! Go then. Post no more. Be gone haters.
 August 28, 2015 at 4:43pm
Wait wait wait…Am I hearing you right Helvidius?
You ADMIT that Trump is just Romney all over again? A man that has flip-flopped on every major issue that is important to Conservatives simply because he was running for President and needed to play to the base? You ADMIT this?
Are all you other Trump supporters hearing this? Do you agree as well? Because it seems to me that Justin is right. There is NO difference between Mitt and Trump… both really wealthy businessmen…both trying to bill themselves as “outsiders” to DC… both being attacked by the GOP Establishment and the Media…both having CHANGED their positions on MAJOR Conservative issues MAGICALLY just before they decided to run for President.
At least Helvidius is FINALLY BEING HONEST as a Trump supporter. The only thing he can come up with that makes Trump different than Romney is that Trump is LOUDER, MORE OBNOXIOUS, and BULLIES people. Yeah, he isn’t SOFT like Romney. Romney made the mistake of listening to the GOP establishment guys after the first debate where he DESTROYED Obama and the Boy-man was in full RETREAT and he was told that the voters want someone that can “nicely” disagree not shout down his opponent. And here we have Helvidius saying that the only thing he can say about Trump is that he ISN’T soft like Romney and WILL shout down his opponents??!!
WHAT??!! Is that all it takes to win you over. F the Constitution! F the People. We just want the LOUDEST JERK in office??
 August 28, 2015 at 3:25pm
You didn’t really understand User19 and he is quite right about Trump and any other of the “insider” “establishment” type candidates like Jeb, Christie, Huckabee, Pataki, and even Kasich.
There is one thing EVERYONE that is supporting Trump seems to be forgetting. We have SCREAMED for the last 6.5 years that the Congress ISN’T doing their jobs and letting Obama rule by EO and fiat. We have pounded our fists and put nearly 100 STRONG Conservatives into the House and about 12 Senators through the Tea Party movement. Some changed once in DC, some got beat the next cycle. So now we have Trump.. the Great Savior…that will do what?
By his own admission, he will FORCE things through. He will MAKE people do what he says. Isn’t this the SAME as what Obama has been doing for nearly 7 years? Isn’t that the TRUE problem with DC? A select group (leadership of both parties) RAMMING through stuff that the People don’t want even when a good portion of Congress votes AGAINST the bill.
If we trade Obama for Trump but they both have the same attitude just from different sides of the isle, how are we ANY BETTER and how are we RESTORING our Constitution and our Nation? We are just one step closer to a Dictator and open tyrant doing what “has to be done” because he/she is the ONLY ONE that can do it because everyone else is too stupid, incompetent, or weak.
“Philip Dru – Administrator” here we come.
“So this is how the Republic dies, not with a bang but applause”
 August 28, 2015 at 3:14pm
Trump isn’t a Conservative nor is he a libertarian. Like any good businessman, Trump knows how to market a product to get the best return on his investment. Trump didn’t have to hire pollsters or a team of analysts, he just had to watch the last three elections cycles (even with Obama’s win the DNC lost big in State level races) and figure out what those candidates were promising and jump on it.
Trump is saying the right things…okay fine…admittedly. You know who else was saying the right things based on the mood of the voters: Obama, Clinton, and FDR. FDR actually ran saying he would be MORE conservative than the GOP (which wasn’t hard with Hoover who was an idiot and a Progressive shill that destroyed the legacy of Coolidge and Harding). Clinton did the same to GHW Bush, blasting him for being weak on National Defense and against the People due to his “no new taxes” statement that he broke. Ross Perot sealed the deal for Clinton by taking about at least 10% of Bush’s base (Yes, Ross Perot GAVE us a Clinton just like Trump could if he goes Third Party – Perot took 18% of the popular vote and Clinton only won by 5%)
I don’t have a problem with Trump smacking around the Media or Fox or the whole DC Establishment hacks but don’t come around and say “Trump is great, Trump is the real deal, Trump is a conservative because he says he changed.” (apparently just 2 months ago). He might even win but he will still just be an Populist Opportunist running for himself.
 August 28, 2015 at 3:00pm
Trump admits to being PART of this…where have you been…in his own words “up until 2 months ago I” bought and paid for politicians on both sides so that they would do “what I want when I call.”
I mean come on….yeah Trump has some good stuff going and he is shaking things up which is great..but blind kool-aid drinking support just makes you like all the sheep that voted for Obama in 2008 because he was “the first black” and then again in 2012 because “Romney was just a rich white racist”….
Seriously…you think Trump ISN’T one of the people that has been rigging the system for the wealthy and connected?? REALLY??
 August 28, 2015 at 11:24am
So would I…Trump should do it, just for the 30 million listeners to Rush that are supposedly Conservative or libertarian minded. It would show some true grit and even if Brad smacked him around some, maybe it would finally end the “Trump has not substance” arguments. It would at least force Trump to get down and dirty with the details of how he claims he will do all these “bumper sticker” “drive-by” soundbites.
Say what you like about Thor, he KNOWS where he stands and can defend those positions down to the smallest detail. (I am also not surprise that the same posters on here are doing the same thing they always do – if you don’t GOOSE STEP with them over the cliff, then all they can do is bad mouth, name call, and spout venom. Grow up guys, seriously.)
Isn’t this what Jefferson and the Founders’ wanted. Bring ALL the ideas out into the Light and let the people decide. Just because Thor has this or that opinion on this or that issue different than Trump or you doesn’t mean you degrade and name call. DEBATE it CALMLY and LOGICALLY without EMOTION and you might find the other person move just a LITTLE bit in your direction and you in theirs.
Thor KNOWS issues. His books are researched to the TEETH down to the smallest detail. He works with Spec Ops and Intel guys, career bureaucrats that deal with foreign interactions all the time, finance and banking guys, and a whole team of researchers. Check out the footnotes and acknowledgements in his books some time.
August 27, 2015 at 3:31pm
You are right axer…it is all about entertainment…
This is the most exciting version of the “Apprentice” that Donald Trump has ever tried to force down the throat of America. He is the center of all attention finally…good or bad…he doesn’t care, EVERYONE is feeding is HUGE EGO.
He has changed his mind so many times in the past decade, even in the past few months (he did say point blank that he was part of the DC problem and involved with the bribery and crony capitalism until 2 months before the debate) that it is hard to know what he TRULY believes and what is just him using his BULLY pulpit (and he truly is a bully in every sense) to say what he thinks people want him to say.
Now..he might actually have changed, I am not judging him on that or saying he is lying but I also am WELL WITHIN my Right to think he could be less than authentic. Now if that somehow makes me some anathema to MY GOD GIVEN RIGHTS as a Citizen of the USA, then maybe we are already too far lost and those that want to NUKE the how system and start over are right…we should…
 August 27, 2015 at 3:09pm
Really…on what planet??
How about site the ONE poll you found (probably paid for by Trump) that shows him polling at over 40%?
Why not use a MUCH wider picture of the electorate at large by siting SEVERAL polls? Here I will do it for you…
And before you start farting fire and calling me a troll or for Jeb or any other of the IDIOTIC comments supposedly KNOWLEDGEABLE and RATIONAL people on here for anyone that doesn’t GOOSE STEP to their opinion, can you say why you support Trump?
Other than some sound bite, cut down, or generality like “I will make Mexico pay for it” without saying HOW he will force a foreign sovereign state to do ANYTHING he tells them to.
How about his tax policy? OH yeah, it is coming supposedly sometime in September.
How about his education policy? NOPE, not even on the radar.
How about his foreign policy? Again, other than “People in our government are stupid and I will do it better because I know how to get things done.” Really, WHAT are you going to do, besides start Trade Wars, that will get ANY other nation on Earth to obey your command Mr. Trump?
Please, in all honesty, if you REALLY believe to your core that Trump HAS TO BE the guy, you have plenty of time even though it is boring as ALL HECK…PLEASE, go read “Philip Dru: Administrator.” I did, it fits Trump to a TEE!!! “They are stupid, I know better, DO IT MY WAY or suffer.”
[-2] August 27, 2015 at 2:54pm
um…Beck posted what his staff was told on his Facebook…talked about it on the radio.. AND SAID that he was going to talk to Trump ON AIR by phone next week…
so if it doesn’t happen that must mean the Trump backed out and has the issue that Trump might look bad…or would that be making the same fact-less claims you did?
are you just blinded by “Trump love” or purposely spouting out false items to stroke your own ego?
