I agree with just giving him the money. If someone needs money and you give it with a willing heart, then you shouldn’t really want to have any say in how it’s spent. Sure we’d like to think the receiver will use it for good or to better their lives, but you shouldn’t give a gift with strings attached. As a general rule I will give money to people begging on the streets, a few bucks here or there, but once I was out with some friends and a woman who was clearly on drugs approached us for money, and just seeing the state she was in…I gave her a 20. My friends were shocked and wanted to be sure I knew she was just going to spend it on drugs. Well, duh, but I just felt like if it kept her from selling herself for a little while then it was the right thing to do. Besides, you never know what will make a difference in someone’s life.

Well, I for one think he’s adorable and funny and sweet and brave. This is his reality. And isn’t everyone always going on about love the sinner, hate the sin? This kid has vowed to live a celibate life (not that I think he should) so I would think he’d be receiving a lot of support from anybody who thinks homosexual acts are a sin.
Most comments here appear to hate the sinner as well. I guess Jesus didn't mean what he said in that part of the Bible or got lost in translation. These are the same type of people from Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail from the "witch" scene.
I'm glad some people other then myself and a few others realize that this place is rampant with hate filled, self loathing idiots who come here to circle jerk each other off.
The majority of regular posters on here who represent Beck, the Republican party and Christianity is what gives those institutions a bad name.
I agree that the comments section of The Blaze is oftentimes just as much of a cesspool as anything that can be found on HuffPo or the Daily Kos. There are some truly disgusting people here.
While I agree with you partly Mod about some conservative commentators here like 1 foot. However, you're just as much of a problem making fun of Christians and antagonizing them. Become part of the solution, debate people logically and politely or leave. Really simple.
List of fallacies
Argument to moderation (false compromise, middle ground, fallacy of the mean) – assuming that the compromise between two positions is always correct
Then we have the progressive named "Moderation is Best". Such a presumptuous name meant to give weight arguments before they are even made.
"While I agree with you partly Mod about some conservative commentators here like 1 foot. However, you’re just as much of a problem making fun of Christians and antagonizing them. Become part of the solution, debate people logically and politely or leave. Really simple."
I find that those who complain about hate, bigotry, etc. are often also the biggest hypocrites who are either projecting as a self-defense mechanism or simply blind to the issues and their own hate, bigotry, etc.
CafeConserv- You can say that again.

Better, I guess. I’m as pretty far against PC as you can get. But I think Conservatives just don’t know the fine line, or they don’t do comedy well, or something. This **** right here looks ugly. And that makes me concerned.
December 13, 2012 at 11:40pm
I won’t go so far as to say I’m offended, and I’m sure all participants are in on the joke and are capable of understanding what they’re doing here.
But what exactly is the point? This is useless nonsense.
The point is, Kwanza is a farce. It's a made up holiday, something like the fakestinians having a made up "state".
Better, I guess. I'm as pretty far against PC as you can get. But I think Conservatives just don't know the fine line, or they don't do comedy well, or something. This shit right here looks ugly. And that makes me concerned.
Nancy Pelosi equated it to Christmas. And the trolls have nothing to do, so they are here.
Glenn Beck is a race baiting baffoon. He lies about wanting a serious discussion about the woes of this nation, in his hearthe is nothing more than a morning zoo crew shock jock that found a new scam.
So it's just like christianity and Islam then, right?
KEATON, still an idiot I see. Liberals like you are pathetic, no class, no morals, no ethics, no decency.
Pathetic ENCINOM is a race baiting baffoon. He lies about wanting a serious discussion about the woes of this nation but does NOTHING to help the situation, in fact, he makes it worse with every post. Pathetic ENCINOM clearly has no value, no morals and no ethics
Well "WALTZING"....you nailed it with your last line..."useless nonsense"...you summed Kwanzaa up in a nutshell.
Tell me "WALTZING"...are you as concerned by the left's incessant "old white men" narrative?

It should be noted that the second video was clearly shot with an iPhone. You know, that oh-so-affordable device that at least 99% of these “99 per centers” seem to have.
Good on you, Mr. Haislmair. Stand strong, I’m sick of them too.
I bet it was an Obama Phone. Does anyone know how many Obama Phones, Obama gave out? How much does it cost for Tax payers to pay for just one phone per month for the service?
I am waiting for a true Conservative News Organization to do the research and tell us. I here it was around 10 million phones. At a cost of $200 per month each for service. 1000's of youths made as much as $10,000 a month signing people up. Mystery.
Although there is indeed a federal program which provides low-income people with free or reduced-cost cell phones, it began in 2008 under President George W. Bush. The idea of providing subsidized phone service to low-income individuals originated with a program started under President Ronald Reagan.
oh as for the second part regarding cost. the program is not funded by the taxes or the government, it is in fact funded by the SafeLink program. SafeLink is run by a subsidiary of América Móvil, the world’s fourth largest wireless company in terms of subscribers, but it is not paid for directly by the company. Rather, it is funded through the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company, an independent, not-for-profit corporation set up by the Federal Communications Commission. The USF is sustained by contributions from telecommunications companies such as long distance companies, local telephone companies, wireless telephone companies, paging companies, and payphone providers. The fund is then parceled out to companies, such as América Móvil, that create programs, such as SafeLink, to provide telecommunications service to rural areas and low-income households.
DB321. you will also see liberal flash mobs coordinated by these phones. The phones come with strings attached. So the puppeteer can control the puppets. Peach be with you.
@ARGUMENTUMADABSURDUMB Reminder: It so happened that Democrats ran the House of Representatives for 46 years -- from 1948 to 1994 -- (which includes both of Reagan's terms), both the House/Senate from 1986 to 1994; Democrats ran both the House and the Senate from 2006 through 2009 (until the 2010 correction).
Which entity cranks out all the new legislation? Hint: Legislative, judicial, or executive?.....
Connect the corresponding legislation to the corresponding party dominance.
I wasnt blaming one party or the other for the inception of the program. I was just making the point that to call them "Obama Phones" is just displaying your ignorance(including that stupid woman from the now infamous video) on the subject and how easily manipulated a great deal of people on the right are. You guys got forwarded some completly bogus email filled with lies and then the pathetic conservative echo chamber heats up, and without any thought given you get a bunch of uniformed rubes on the internet shouting about commie obama wasting tax dollars giving black people free iphones. It also didnt escape my attention that you ignored the contents of the 2nd post, you know the one with the pertinant facts in it, and instead chose to just devolve into the "well it still was the democrats that did it" argument. Well played.
@ARGUMENTATIVE When you state: "...it began in 2008 under President George W. Bush. The idea of providing subsidized phone service to low-income individuals originated with a program started under President Ronald Reagan."
Followed by: "...wasnt blaming one party or the other for the inception of the program"
Then what exactly were you doing, besides assigning blame, then distancing yourself from your own inconsistency?
"Well played" ? ....Pffft.
October 26, 2012 at 11:51pm
Yep…it’s not unheard of for it to happen on our side as well ( IIRC, in 2008 a young woman claimed that Obama supporters cut a “B” for Barack on her face…turns out she did it to herself). I’ve stopped taking this type of incident at face value.

I don’t think this is funny..I think this girl might have a developmental/learning disability. She may be blessed to have parents who can afford to let her do things like this, and she’s functional enough to stand on line on her own, so let her enjoy herself.

“You don‘t really know what’s really going on and it’s not, it’s not what you might think. It’s not like the movies, you know it‘s pretty serious when you’re holding a gun on somebody.”
“You don‘t know if they’re gonna pull a gun out or try to take your gun away from you or get you in a corner when you’re forced to shoot them. And I was trying to keep that from happening.”
Spoken like a truly responsible gun owner. Well done, sir.

Mike Gallagher is the most honest man in radio. I found him when my local “conservative” talk guy endorsed Obama in 2008, and I had to switch stations. Mike says what’s true, and he is so real. He shares so much of himself and he is never afraid to admit he’s made a mistake. Do yourself a favor and actually read the book.
August 16, 2012 at 11:01pm
So, let me get this straight…this man’s “friends” acknowledge that they won’t get near the man when he’s passed out (even if he’s possibly OD’ing) for fear of the dog. So they’re not helping him. The “yuppie” lady is standing as close as she dares to the man on the sidewalk in what I presume is an effort to help, when the dog makes a run at her. Then the dog charges the officer, and gets shot. And someone complains that the cops only shot the dog because it bit a “yuppie”? I’m sorry, did you want the dog shot before? Which is it, hippies?
I feel the officer made the right decision. I feel sorry for the dog, not her fault she has a lousy owner who put her in this position. Still the right call on the officer’s part. And that was a helluva shot, IMO.

Same! That was the best one.

Good looking guy.
December 22, 2011 at 11:23pm
Funny, that was my first thought too!
It’s a cute pic though…they make a nice looking couple.
I have to admit it makes me a little uncomfortable, but since I don’t have a problem with Teh Gheys, guess I should put my money where my mouth is (so to speak…).
December 3, 2011 at 9:54pm
So, the police get a 911 call and respond to it, and they’re the idiots? You all who are saying ignorant things like that would probably be the first ones to complain if the police didn’t respond in a timely fashion.
I would agree that it is not the nicest thing to be pleased that someone - anyone - has a dreaded disease. That said, it is human nature to wish horrible punishment on people who have done horrible things. You say he did not act "perfectly". Really? Scapegoating? Really? Tell that to the myriad of young boys whose childhoods were robbed from them because good ol' Joe didn't take "perfect" action. No one is expected to be perfect, but decent people of character are expected to act in the best interest of children. Passing the buck and washing his hands of it permitted the RAPE of countless more boys who could have been protected. Unconscionable. All of you people who apologize and make excuses for Paterno and any of the rest of the sleezeballs who did nothing while the innocence was ripped from these children seriously concern me. It seems all of you would be cautious and worried about the consequences to the norm, to your job, to your friends or family if you were to come across information like this in your life. I sincerely hope none of you have children who will ever depend on you to protect their well-being, since it is all too apparent that you could not be counted on to act "perfectly". Disgusting.
One other thing... "Wow, judge much, people?" - WaltzingMtilda
Ummm, yeah. Know why? Because we are on this earth to JUDGE right from wrong. We cannot judge his soul, only God can do that, but we have a responsibility to judge his actions. I am ever so sick of sanctimonious people who say things like " who are you to judge?". I'm a human being with the intellect and the character to be able to make a decision that something is WRONG. Next time you want to make such an asinine statement or pose such a BS question, ask yourself if you would judge the actions of your would-be rapist or murderer as wrong, or if you would simply say "who am I to judge?"

You guys are being way too harsh on this kid. First of all, he’s very talented and works very hard to keep his fans happy. Second of all, if you do a little research on him you will see that he has a strong Christian faith and is pro-life, something I would think most commentors here would approve of.
He was asked a question and he answered it. Whether or not you like his answer is irrelevant…people keep saying “who cares what he thinks?”. Well obviously someone does or the question wouldn’t have been asked.
October 17, 2011 at 8:51pm
Excellent point. They live in a world of their own, and they take it VERY seriously.
