nah..come on…the last three D to run or be Pres had at least a C- GPA in college…some even as high as a C+…
now of course that doesn’t include the high school years or earlier..
we know that our current Messiah did after all hang out with the Shroom Gang, cut class, and was baked all day while playing b-ball (his own accounts say so)..must have been rough at the $15K/year price tag at Punahou in Oahu..he was after all, you know, a Poo black child faced with the Racist Whiteman holding him down..or was that just his RICH White grandparents footing the bill…oh nevermind…it doesn’t matter anyway now…
I mean he even made it into Occidental and FLUNKED OUT before the end of his second year…(we don’t have the official transcripts but he at least admitted to this)…
Then he managed to get into Columbia -WOW, amazing for someone that FAILED at another college. Even though NOBODY say one professor seems to EVER remember him being in a classroom or taking a test..nobody!
YET..he then managed to get into Harvard Law and become the 1st Black head of the Law Review WITHOUT EVER writing an opinion piece or being published AS IS REQUIRED by the Law Review…well it was a Co-leadership I believe they admitted that too…
So just to recap…we haven’t had a President with a better than average GPA since Clinton, which isn’t saying much because he might have slept his way to an A…never know with him…

Mod – you are showing yourself to be the true Lib Prog Commie troll we all know you are..
GWB BEFORE being President…
1 – Co-Owner of the Texas Rangers 1989-1995
2 – Successful company in the oil business – Arbusto and later Spectrum-7 – nearly 10 years
3 – Governor of Texas for 6 years
4 – Spent 3 years in the Alabama Air National Guard as a pilot
Seems like nearly 25 YEARS of experience WORKING and being an Executive Officer of a company, a major sports franchise, and the 3rd largest State (in terms of economy) at the time of his tenure.
dang Mod…you really most LOVE Bobo the Wonder Marxist to pretend to be that STOOOOOPID!

Walking out of class would bring an automatic suspension for Truancy.
By failing to look at the teacher, all he can do is tell them that if they continue putting their heads down (a sign of sleeping in class) they can be given a detention and/or sent to the office.
Turning the desks around without permission is actually also an act of defiance and punishable by immediate suspension. Students to not have the right to rearrange furniture in the classroom without the teacher’s consent.
The students can even avoid the issue but just closing their eyes while seated in an upright position. IF the teacher addresses you and tells you to open them, you and politely say “I can hear you and I am paying attention but I do not have to look at you or see you to do so.”
Refusing to reply, acknowledge, or respond when addressed can be recorded as defiance and lead to suspension.
They are handling it correctly…minus the idiots on social media making threats…
If the school board is smart, they will transfer the teacher somewhere else in the district.

Give Buck some credit. the guy is uber smart on the inner workings of national security and covert/overt ops…
I think you missed the point actually…Buck wasn’t addressing the legality of the Patriot Act but specifically the “debate” that is going on IN CONGRESS as to whether the Act should be reauthorized-amended-or scrapped all together given the lower Court ruling. The Court ruling was specifically about the collection of metadata en mass without specific names, times, places on an issued warrant from the FISA court.
Congress can choose to reword or rework or completely drop Section 215 and satisfy the Court ruling.
Rand Paul was talking yesterday to delay that vote on the re-authorization.
Hopefully enough Senators will be flooded to get this vote tabled but not likely.
ALL the Democrats are going to vote for it, save maybe Sanders.
And the leadership will only need to get 16 Republicans to go for it and it will carry. Just like the last split vote where the Leadership only had 1/2 of the GOP Senators vote with them, this will go much the same way, which will kick the issue back into the court system and HOPEFULLY lead to a SCOTUS ruling to void Section 215 and ALL the Patriot Act (which I also doubt because Roberts will cave and vote for the Admin/Establishment)
VRW, you are right. Buck is great and I do like his opinions and analysis a lot. I just had a bug-a-boo about the "general warrant" argument.

Horrible grammar and speaking skill…
Richard should continue his hard work and learn to talk correctly and then blast the IDIOTIC notion that “talking white” means you are somehow “less black” or a sell out to the “black cause”….look at Ben Carson or Condi Rice or Clarence Thomas or Thomas Sewell….
Love they way you take a positive moment and turn it into a negative. Your life must be wonderful.
I concur Quiet Man.
He is a Stanford Graduate. Would you deny him the opportunity to question his orator skills? Stanford! Not directional U., but Standford. The acedemic standards are suppose to be at the echelon of Universties.

Problem is that Ben is speaking to the choir on this one…everyone with a brain (sorry Liberal Prog Commie trolls) on this site already KNOWS without a doubt that HRC is up for the highest bidder as long as she gets the POWER. She doesn’t want to be President because she wants to IMPROVE America, make her safer, or keep Freedom and Liberty alive in this world, she wants to be President because she was PROMISED the job for keeping her mouth shut about Bill’s little blue dress moments in the WH. She was PROMISED the job for backing off Bobo the Wonder Marxist and not letting the Clinton War Room machine tear him apart in 2008 which would have given us probably a President McCain (shutter…oh the HORROR of that idea). She had to endure a bought and paid for time as Senator from NY (someplace they didn’t even live at the time until she was asked to run, then they MAGICALLY fast tracked her IN-State Residency) which was supposed to give her the Street-Cred to be Pres in 2008. She had to endure working for Bobo the Wonder Marxist for nearly 5 years, listening to his idiotic comments and watching him prance around on vacation and golf weekends while Rome BURNED. And she had to COVER for him when he IGNORED or even worse CONSPIRED on the Arab Spring that lead to Benghazi and 4 dead Americans.
She is OWED this, don’t you know..and she DANG WELL DEMANDS the PEON CITIZENS of the USA GIVE IT TO HER. BIOTCH!! DIE DIE DIE>..

Check out his site and look at the BulletSafe Alpha vest…at $699…it rocks…and looks dang near exactly like a Military body armor kit…add some plates at $169 front and rear and for under $1000 you are ready to rock and roll in the next Baltimore/Ferguson DNC sheeple convention…
I would paint mine with some Camo just for kicks….where it to the grocery store or bank or if the Raiders even came to DFW to play the Cowboys.. LOL…
 May 19, 2015 at 5:27pm
That is EXACTLY what an HONEST and LEGITIMATE 4th Branch of Government would do…they would just IGNORE her…give her NO coverage no matter WHAT she does…
don’t publish any statements
don’t post any blogs or pictures
don’t respond when she sends invitations to events
don’t even SHOW UP!.. just say NO….
You wanna bet that she would be SCREAMING within days if the MSM and Press just STOPPED showing up to all her little STAGED gatherings with PREPARED questions…
Fox should be the first…NO CAMERAS…NO VIDEO…send some Staffer to just take notes of how pathetic she is for staging all this but NEVER report it in PRINT or TV…
if the Talk Radio crowd did the same…if the Print and Blogosphere did the same…
if the ONLY people that were covering her were the Liberal Prog POS people…she would look that fool…
maybe someone at CNN would grow and spine and join in…
what will that leave her….the MSDNC network?? and Georgie boy over at ABC….
what would happen if all his co-hosts told him “WE DON’T CARE ABOUT HRC, so shut up you paid shill”
GAWD that would be AWESOME!!…
 May 19, 2015 at 12:51pm
already had that discussion…maybe if you had kids you would have had it too…
both my kids are perfectly happy with their sport (both even have Professional aspirations and college scholarship hopes), they also LOVE guns and want to learn all they can about SHOOTING pistols and rifles and shotguns, and they BOTH have MILITARY career hopes as well.
SO…as their parent…I put them in the activities that will GUIDE and TRAIN and HELP them achieve their goals and dreams…that isn’t “organizing their leisure” or “preventing their free time” – we all spend PLENTY of time having fun playing games together or seeing movies or whatever… it is called being a GOOD PARENT and TRAINING UP your children…
With our military being turned completely pc and trans everything, soon decent God fearing Constitutional patriots will be completely ousted from military service unless the big pendulum swings back towards sanity. The idea of group showers and sleeping quarters is wholly incompatible withmixed genders and lifestyle choosers. Anyone that has been in the service knows what it is like. No privacy an hardly any modesty. I find it difficult to even mention military to my kids as a future option the way it is going much less college at any school... even supposedly conservative ones.
 May 19, 2015 at 12:47pm
I am encouraging all women that go to a public gym to get a CHL and carry in the gym even if they have a policy that says you can’t.
If that same gym has a Gender Neutral policy where they allow transgender or transvestite or gender neutral people to enter whichever locker room or bathroom or sauna they wish…meet that person with a few rounds of Brass and Lead and when the police arrive all you have to say is…
“I was naked in the shower/locker room. I saw a man walk in and he kept advancing towards me. I told him to stop but he didn’t and I was afraid so I protected myself.”
OH yeah…make sure he/it doesn’t survive and then there is nobody to contradict your version. THEN SUED the F’ing H### out of the gym over their policy that promotes VIOLENCE towards WOMEN.
After this happens all over the country, I think the Gay Mafia/Transgender-LGBT Nazis will run for the hills with their arms flailing wildly….will be amusing to watch…and then maybe this country can get back to SANITY where your sexual CRAP is kept in your OWN HOME!! not MY KIDS SCHOOL or the local gym or grocery store or even WALKING DOWN THE F’ing STREET!!
Wow... Who ordered the extra large to-go box of psychosis?
@ VRW Conspirator: Yeah, most sane Americans are just as tired of this 2 % in your face abomination. Your tirade, however, is pure genius, since homosexuals can not naturally reproduce and their numbers would quickly dwindle. In the mean time, they must be kept away from our innocent children, even those that are on Network Television & movies.
@ wiltsie -AND- thegunshow -AND- Blest: Your LGBT / Dem-Lib-Prog-Soc-Comm brainwashing is nearly complete. Please seek professional help OR exorcism.
I went to the women's restroom in a large store several years ago. As I opened the door, a guy around 45 years of age came out. I asked him what he was doing in the women's bathroom and he said he was helping his handicapped wife.
I looked inside the bathroom and their was no one else in it, there was no disabled wife.
I went to store security and they asked me to point out the guy. I did.
Security watched the man for about 15 minutes or so, unit they saw the guy follow a little girl into the bathroom. Security stormed into the bathroom and chased the guy out.
Turns out he was a convicted sex offender.
Now security could no longer follow that man into the women's restroom because all the pervert would have to do is say that he "identified" as a woman.
Tom K : Already had 8 years of it and they pronounced me sane. Haven't had any reason to go back in the last 30 years. As for my politics, I am a small government constitution type. What would you like to call me next?
The restroom thing is a little weird, flier. Many pedophiles seek out boys. Should we ever allow multiple men into a single restroom? It seems like we've already created an easy target for pedophiles and predatory gay men
yep. One more left winger who is trying to act the way they think those on the right "should" act? Trying to make us all look crazy. Sorry "plant".
REALLY? care to test that argument. ?
Now, let's talk about a group that is TRULY a danger to children........catholic priests.
@just "Now, let’s talk about a group that is TRULY a danger to children……..catholic priests." and public school teachers too, right, just?
If homosexuals not reproducing had any effect on the homosexual population, why are there still homosexuals. I mean people only live at the most 100 years. Did no homosexuals exist before the 1900's?
 May 19, 2015 at 12:37pm
as usual, your Progressive Commie Troll side overrides your actual brain which should see the idiocy of your talking points handed down from your “glorious leader”…what are we to do with you? don’t fret, the ACA provides for nearly free (free to you, a tax on someone WITH a life and job) healthcare…use it to seek mental help from a licensed and competent Psychologist or Psychiatrist.
The GSA was CREATED as a female version of the BSA, to teach and train up girls into UPSTANDING young women and educated members of society – you know Citizens that take responsibility for themselves, their decisions, and the safety and well being of those in their family and neighborhoods.
Yeah, those things that the Progressive Commie Left has spent over 100 years trying to destroy through increasing the poverty and dependence of minorities through their “wars” on Poverty and Drugs (both racist policies to the CORE, do some research and fully Democrat supported and created).
The GSA is supposed to be a SAFE place for GIRLS (BIOLOGICALLY FEMALE human beings) to learn and play and train themselves without the OVERT sexualization of society interfering. By letting ANYONE that identifies as a “female” into the GSA, girls will no longer UNDERSTAND themselves. IF you see a boy (clearly male) sitting across from you in a skirt, HOW is that training GIRLS in a safe way? You are FORCING the sexual into a place that is supposed to be FREE from it. Lesbian girls FINE!! Chicks with D’s NO
May 15, 2015 at 1:43pm
King is correct.
The Celtic People once populated most of Western Europe and even into the eastern sections.
The Teutonic People occupied the northern parts of Europe along with the Scandinavians.
The Slovac People occupied the Southeast.
Most of the Medittereanian area is the Macedonian people.
The Celts included the Goths ( all flavors), the Gauls, the Britons, the Picts, and the Vandals. They were the primary “roaming hordes” that the Greeks and Romans battled as well as stood against Hannibal, Attila the Hun (who merged with the eastern Celts and Slovacs to give us the People of the former USSR countries), and even the Moors/Muslims (you can thank the Gauls and the Baske people for stopping the takeover of Southern Europe, not that you can find a Baske much anymore, the Hispanics have pretty much exterminated them all).
The only near pure Celtic People left on the planet are currently confined to small islands off the western coast of Southern Ireland. They still speak primarily Gaelic as well (the language term for those Celts who liver on the areas of Wales, Ireland (ALL of it), and Scotland (the northern third of the primary island in the British Isles).
England hasn’t been Celtic since the Roman invasion and subsequent invasions of the Normans (Roman Gauls), Saxons (Vikings), and Teutonic people (Germans).
No, he is not correct, and neither are you, at least not entirely.
First, KingofPrydain. suspect his ancestors came from Ireland or Scotland (or Scotland by way of Ireland?), so he, like lots of folks here, has Braveheart fantasies. Maybe I'm wrong. (Full disclosure: as far as I know, most of my ancestors were English, Scots, or Scots-Irish, with, I've been told, a soupcon of French Canadian.) If his ancestors came from say, the Irish-speaking West of Ireland or the Gaelic part of Scotland, then they would qualify as "Celts," but he would not, assuming his native language is English. Again, it's a language designation and a language designation only.
Now, you. Yes, people speaking Celtic, Germanic and Slavic languages lived roughly in the areas you mention in ca. 200 BC, but not necessarily before or after that.. Mediterranean Europe was mixed, Greek, Italic (including Latin), Celtic and even some Semitic in Carthaginian parts of Spain. However, the Goths and Vandals were mostly Germanic-speakers, and the Picts may not even have been Indo-European. There are hundreds of distinct peoples in the former USSR, so I'll leave that aside. The peoples of the "Celtic fringe" are no "purer" racially or culturally than anyone else, they are only "nearly pure Celtic" because they still speak Celtic languages, which most Irish and Scots do not.

 May 14, 2015 at 2:24pm
Seriously..20 likes…are you people clueless or are all the trolls simply grouping together…??
Most cops ARE LIKE these three. The MSM simply only tell you of the 10% MORON THUGS that act like LEO’s because they want to shoot someone and have a power trip. Sort of like when Glenn started the Blaze on reporting about GOOD stories where a Citizen used a gun to defend themselves instead of just the BAD stories. There are dozens every day of an armed citizen defending themselves but the MSM only run the one where somebody walked into a mall and killed a kid or shoot their gay lover or whatever..
But the MSM NEVER EVER tells of the black or hispanic or asian or even white gang banging thug IDIOTS that killed some other thug idiot in the Inner City…of course unless it was a Skinhead White gang killing some minority gang thugs (who immediately become poor misunderstood innocent hard working kids trying to improve themselves …. by selling drugs, ho’s, and guns to other scumbags)…
BUT…when the Blaze posts “feel good” stories about LEO’s doing good in the community or buying a guy a pair of shoes or a car seat for a new baby or food for a homeless…ALL the COP HATING trash on here immediately storm the comments saying how all cops are Stormtroopers bent on stealing our rights as they goosestep for the Fed taking us into a Police Military State like the old USSR or China or modern day North Korea….
guess who that makes the IDIOTS? YOU!!
 May 13, 2015 at 4:18pm
kinda stupid twitter society shirt…
wear the image of the entire true flag or not at all…
don’t make some caricature of it or dumb it down…
these things are built for the 50% of the population that speak to each other in 144 spaces or less…gawd forbid you have to write out United States of America or USA even…
 May 12, 2015 at 11:50am
even better…get a second cell phone…charge the bill for the first to the company as a “work related expense” and then LEAVE the dang thing in the office when you go home…
just lock it in a file drawer of your desk…EASY solution…
when they told me that I would have to put the app on my private phone my first response would have been
“Excuse me, I need to do what? If you want me to have a phone with a tracking device on it, you provide me with a NEW phone or you can F off.”
I don’t even use my phone to check my work email because in our Electronic Use Policy it says that “personal devices” that connect to the Employer network, while on site, can be confiscated and search at any time in case of a security break or to investigate allegations of wrong doing. Which means if I set up my phone to check my work email, and those emails are stored, even temporarily, on my phone, my phone is NO LONGER PRIVATE and can be taken and looked through AT ANY TIME by my Employer.
Yet I know MANY MANY employees that bring in their personal laptops and pads and log them into the network….STUPID!!!
 May 11, 2015 at 12:46pm
OMG..are you kidding me.. NOBODY knew this??
IT IS CALLED A BUTTERFLY…it is to pull the top of the shoe tightly around your ankle so that when you RUN at full speed in the RUNNING SHOE or Cross Trainer…IT FITS RIGHT!!
WTF…the person SELLING you the shoes should have told you that…I have been doing this for 35 years and was told by my running shoe guy when I first started Track and Field in Middle School!!..
Are you serious that some IDIOT LED light company is putting this out as a “NEW DISCOVERY”..??
HOLY H#&& PEOPLE…have we really gotten that LAZY and IGNORANT about the products we buy that we don’t even learn to use and wear them appropriately??
Okay…scratch that…rhetorical question there…seeing as how most people will drop $70-80 for a decent pair of Nike runners or cross trainers just so their kid can where them to school and destroy them in PE class or better yet NEVER use them for anything else then to walk down the street with the dog or go to WalMart…. GAWD…can we just WIPE the planet GOD and start over…seriously…OMFG!!
Hey, VRW, it’s great that you already knew this, but nobody knows everything! I’m certain there are lots of things that are long know and obvious to me that others don’t know. Also, people buy all sorts of things at all sorts of prices for all sorts of reasons. Just because their price points and their reasons don’t match with yours doesn’t make them lazy or ignorant. Chill,,dude!
It's been a long time since I've met a knowledgeable shoe salesperson. The last time I was in a shoe store, the clerk never came out from behind the cash register.
This seems like a weird topic for someone to get this worked up about.
I don't like shoe salesman and wearing shoes has never been a problem for me to have to ask this question. I order my shoes on-line. The concept of 'butterflying' my shoes causes me concern that I may cut the circulation off to my feet. Maybe I'll try it one day just to see how it feels. If I ever start running again. I can't imagine wanting to butterfly sandals here in sunny Florida.
You seem be an @$$. Because I didn't know this and I don't run. I have bought running shoes for work and nothing was said to me about it. What is "where" should be "WEAR".
 May 8, 2015 at 6:20pm
Rosie. I call BS on you. Big time. Most of the teachers you know are fairly conservative?? Really?? Define most and fairly! What they are Gay Madia members? Maybe they actually think the government is over reaching just a little? On some things but not others. Yeah I bet they don’t like the way the ACA caused their union health insurance plans to get more expensive or their premiums to go up? That makes them down right Right Wing wackos right??
Do some research and pay attention. Even in conservative states, 80% or more of teachers grades K-12 and college self describe as either Moderate or Liberal Democrats. About 20% self describe as ACTUAL Socialists that just vote Democrat. Of the remaining 20% most are Math and Science teachers and they usually won’t answer the political questions because they believe their personal opinion shouldn’t be a factor in their job OR they describe as Moderate Republicans with only a few saying Conservative or libertarian.
In my dads 35 years and my 18 as a teacher, I can count on my fingers and toes the number of TRULY libertarian conservative Constitutional
