    “The government is acting like girls gone wild.” As though this story couldn’t get even worse, I read your comment and thought of Nancy polosi and Hillary Clinton.
    Thanks a lot man. I’m sick now

    Is it any great surprise that with the emergence of “social media,” there are more things like this that happen. To many kids today don’t have communication skills. I’m only 31, but I think the lord I’m just old enough to have come up prior to all this facebook and twitter crap. (So says the guy posting on the blaze.) I didn’t know what facebook was until I was in my 4th year of college. I used it for a week to find out if the girls I dated in high school ever lost that extra weight. (Side note, I should have hung on to Brandy, she got hot.)

    The point I’m making is this. PARENTS are raising self entitled little whiners. I use raising loosely, because far to often, when I’m out to dinner, I see mom and dad give little Jr. an IPAD to watch instead of letting them observe the adults. So we have this lost generation of kids out there, and the only way they know how to deal with their problems is through “social media.” Since there is no genuine communication, they still feel alone in all their problems, and then do something like this. Bad Parents and Bad kids equals something like this.

    A similar situation happened to me when I was a kid. I remember walking through the grocery store with my mother when I was about 5 or 6. I asked my mother, “Can I please have this cereal, cause I want the prize?” My mother said no. I went in to a super tirade. Kicking, screaming, making a scene. My mother was so embarrassed as I lay in the middle of the isle yelling at the top of my lungs. After a few minutes of this, a man in full dress uniform walked down the isle, knelt down and said to me. “Hey boy, do you know what I am?” Intimidated by his uniform, I looked up at him and said quietly, A soldier. He said, “That’s right, and if you don’t stop acting like this, I’ll give you something to cry about.” Needless to say, I stopped crying. As the man stood up my mother looked at him and said. “Thank you so much, I’m so embarrassed.” He nodded his head and went on his way. When I got home and my mother told my father, I was given yet another reason to cry. Its been 25 years since that happened. I haven’t talked to my mother since. But the good news is I have a delicious bowl of Fruit Loops every morning, and a collection of prizes I’ve collected over the years.

    A (d) emocrat told the truth about Obama. Hmm, must mean that Obama’s terms are coming to an end and Pennata might be setting up Hillary Clinton. Even when they are honest, they are deceitful.

    Not far from where this video was taken is a lake called, Fontana Lake. It sits right on the NC, TN boarder, right in the middle of the park. When lake levels are low, the peaks of a few buildings can still be seen. Prescott was the name of the town. Forced out by democrats led by FDR so they could create TVA projects.

    “I discovered.” “If anyone comes after me.” You discovered jack squat. I lived 20 minutes from there up in the mountains of East Tennessee not far outside of Gatlinburg. Growing up there, I can’t even count how many late nights me and my friends and our dates ended up there. It always makes me laugh when people see The smokey’s and stand it wounder of its “Natural beauty.” It is very beautiful, but it is hardly natural. It is a region that was 80% deforested. It is almost completely new growth Forrest. Cades Cove, which happens to be one of my favorite places in the world, at its height had close to 600 residents living in the valley. It even had phone service. However during the winter it was often only for valley use as the lines outside to Maryville would often freeze and fall. When people visit, and see a few cabins, they get the impression that 5 people lived there. I’v hiked up in the mountains and come across old logging equipment, rusted out cars. None of which I discovered. thousands and thousands of hikers saw it before me, and will see it after me. Until nature completely covers it. Go out to Fontana Lake on the NC, Tennessee Boarder. At low lake levels, tops of buildings can be see where the TVA created damns, flooded valleys and put hole towns underwater.

    So why the cover up. My only speculation is, The weapons were designed and made in America, and given to the Iraqi’s during the 80′s as a counter to Iran. Which at that time was a bigger problem to the US than were Iraq. (Notice I didn’t blame Reagan. It very well could have been an NSA or CIA operation he knew nothing about) But regardless of where the orders came from. Can we please learn from the lessons of the past and stop arming our enemies to fight our other enemies. Either way, it comes back to bite us in the A–.

    Lets not lump on the studies into one pile. I still want to know why Fat people can’t get dates.

    I can’t imagine anyone having a one night stand with this woman. I think this is why she loves animals. I don’t think people like her.

    So is it okay if a kid who tries really hard, but isn’t as smart as the other kids, barrows the answers of the smartest kid in the class. Is that called classy? Is that called lending a helping hand? Or is that called cheating? I’m inclined to believe that it would considered cheating.

    But you say, “Oh come on, its just a game.” And I respond. “Oh come on, its just one test. And its probably something that kid will never have to use again.”

    This was a missed opportunity for the losing coach to stand up and say to his team, “Guys, this is embarrassing. I want you to always remember what this fills like to lose so badly. This game, like life, isn’t always going to go your way. This game just like life, is a perfect illustration on how important it is to rely on your teammates and family, not the government or society and other people. We were completely unprepared when we lost our best player. So guys, which of you is going to put in the extra work. Which one of you is going to stay late. Which of you is going to grow and develop new skills. Which of you is going to step up and be the leader of this team. Never mind guys, I’ll just let the opposing teams best player come over and play for us.”

    These kids were denied that learning experience. That team might have had a diamond in the rough QB that just needed the chance to play. But he was denied that chance. Had I been on that team I would have quit. My dad taught me about what it means to be part of a team. He also taught me what it means to learn from losing. But these kids weren’t given that opportunity.

    It’s not about winning. It’s about getting better. Sometimes the only way to get better is to go through those really bad games. But these kids weren’t given the opportunity to get better. They were indoctrinated in progressive sportsmanship. “The other team has something we need, and we should be able to get it.” What about that kid on the losing team that rarely gets to play anyway, and when he might actually get a chance to play due to injury, the coaches decide that it would be less embarrassing for everyone involved if we just give you our best player.

    I was a pretty good high school basketball player. I was offered some partial scholarships to some division 1 schools and a number of full scholarships to division 2 schools before a back injury senior year ended my playing days. There is one reason I was a good basketball player. When I was in 7th grade, I was playing middle school ball. I can remember the school, the gym, even the guy I was guarding. Scott could shoot. He played lights out. He lit us up for 55 points to lead his team to a huge blow out. And to be perfectly honest. Most of those 55 points were against me. The way I played, the way my team played, and the way he played against me was the biggest reason I put the time and work in to become a good ball player. I never ever wanted to be outplayed like that again.

    I would have quit that team had I been on it. The problem with kids today is that they don’t know how to translate losing into a learning experience. I hated playing teams that were worse than us. There was no challenge in beating teams that sucked. I always loved playing against the best, even if that meant losing. It was a challenge to play against a better team. There is no better measuring stick than going up against a better opponent.

    I saw a pole of NBA players that asked who they would rather have as a team mate. Larry Bird, or Michael Jordan. The majority of those answered said they would have rather played with Larry Bird, and played against Michael Jordan. Their were more bragging rights in beating the Best then there were in playing with the best. That goes to these guys competitive nature. The kids in this video don’t have any sort of competitive nature. They come from a generation of kids whose parents said keeping score isn’t important, only having fun is. What these kids don’t realize is, for sports to be fun, you have to learn from losing. The pride they could have taken away from scoring 1 touchdown with their own teammates would have outweighed any fun they had playing with the opposing teams quarterback.

    Sportsman ship is helping a fallen player up. Sportsman ship is not being cheap. Sportsmanship is not cheating. Sportsmanship is NOT giving the other team your quarterback. That is pity. Pity has no place in sports.

    I wonder how many abortion clinics she drove passed so she could put on this little staged performance about chickens?

    You know what sounds really good, A grilled chicken sandwich with Swiss cheese, a fried egg, and three strips of bacon on it. I’ll call it A Snow Flake Chicken Sandwich.

    Who gives a rats backside. I want the most qualified available. Male or female. More over, I hope they are having a great day. I hope they got some when they woke up from their spouse. I hope they enjoyed it. I hope they found 20 bucks on the way in. I hope they had a great spiritual experience when they got to work. I hope they prayed a half dozen times already that they do the lords work with his help and blessings. I hope he has 20 degrees on the wall announcing his expertise in every imaginable field.

    So what if I get the watch. It says I have 45 years left. So I’m cruising along enjoying all the time I have left when I get hit by a car. Can my family sue Ticker for lying?

    You really need to watch the video on youtube to really understand what happened. I see a black kid on a cell phone pick up a toy gun. He walks up and down the isles talking on his phone, passing other shoppers who have no reaction to him what-so-ever. Then the cops enter. The officer yells drop the gun, and without giving the kid an opportunity to drop the toy, the officer fires. Not even a second passed between the order to drop and the first shot.

    I try so hard not to hate the police. But they are making it very difficult. Every day, a nervous, over zealous, trigger happy officer fires on someone that didn’t deserve it. Some people say it’s a clear case of murder. Some people say it’s poor training, some people say its because we have militarized the police with military weapons and used battled hardened soldiers for police officers.

    To me, the officer is responsible. He was under no threat, and had no immediate need to fire. There is one person who is more responsible that the officer. The lazy, fearful, constitutional hating, racist, liberal that saw a black kid with a gun and thought he/she should call the police.

    I completely understand the need for gun activist to go on open carry walks. People need to get used to the idea that people are armed and among us, and just because we see a gun doesn’t mean something bad is gong to happen. I pray for that kid, his family. I also pray for the officer who shot the poor kid.
