    ME ME ME.. Its all about ME ME ME. This is my day. MINE MINE MINE.

    Guys, if your about to marry a woman that obsesses over every detail, wants her wedding day to be perfect like a movie and thinks life is all about her, then take this as your last warning and RUN RUN RUN.

    Weddings are supposed to be fun. They are supposed to be a celebration. And if other people are inclined to take that moment and propose, then God Bless em. More fun more surprises.

    I work a few weddings every month at the restaurant I work at. Most of them feature a Bridezilla and her minion trolls. Like the brides maids and mother of the bride.

    I remember this one wedding, The Bride was under no circumstances an attractive woman. She was very over weight. Her dress hardly fit her. She got married on the beach in front of the restaurant. And it poured rain. The poor girl was soaked. The wind was so bad it pulled a bit of roof or something and the roof leaked directly onto her cake. The Brides mother was a hysterical —- who demanded answers. The Brides maids were arguing about everything. But then, out of nowhere The Bride grabs the DJ’s microphone, and in the midst of all these things going wrong, and her family and friends acting like —-, she explains that it was her happiest day, and nothing was going to ruin it.

    All her family and friends felt a bit ashamed of acting the way they were, and I remember thinking, “Of all the weddings I’ve worked, this is a woman who will be a great wife.”

    There was a time when someone was to old to care for themselves, they moved back in with a son or daughter. The grandchildren were the greatest beneficiaries of this. They had 2 older generations of people to listen and learn from. Social security has allowed grandma and grandpa to ignore their duty as patriarchs of the family, they can now spend their golden years down in Florida complaining about young people.

    We have lost our sense of family. When tragedy struck our neighbor, we used to run to his aid, and help raise the walls of a fallen building. We would provide what food we could so that they would not starve. Now we just check the balance on our government funded EBT cards. And now I don’t have to deal with my neighbors.

    People have lost a sense of responsibility in protecting themselves and their family. Their are two many people that think guns are the problem, and they won’t get one for their own protection. They believe it is the Job of the police to show up and protect them.

    We have lost our spiritual path. Why would I read the bible and teach my children anything. Pastor Bob will do that for me on Sunday.

    I’m not saying we should get rid of police and fire departments. What I am saying is, if you think that these things are your first line of defense, then you are the problem with this country. More so than Obama. Because you put him in power.

    Benjamin Franklin said it best. ”Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither.”
    The problems with this country are bigger than August Vollmer. The problems in this country are bigger than Hillary Clinton, bigger than Obama. People like them just capitalize on the stupidity of people who are willing to Sacrifice liberty for security, regardless of whether its finical security or safety.

    The founders believed that when the people are left alone, they are limited only by their own imagination and willingness to work. Every man had a sense of duty to his neighbors. If their house was on fire, they came running with a bucket. If someone was in trouble, they came running with their musket. These days, we’ve exported all sense of community to the government, freeing us to pull out our cell phones and take video of someones tragedy.

    Look at our police forces. Where I live, I have city police next to county sheriffs next to highway patrol officers. Not to mention your state (insert state initial.) _BI.

    We export our children education to schools. We export our children’s religious teachings to church, we export our safety to an officer. The home is nothing more than a place to gather around the dinner table and stare at our cell phones or news papers.

    It isn’t about uniforms or patrol cars. Its about the sense of community this country has lost.

    I’ve grown tired of this generational garbage people like Flukengrubered like to throw around. Does he actually believe that this country just now began to experience problems. He would make a great politician. A lack of solutions, but heavy on telling you who is to blame. And that my friends is how you win elections.

    The problem with most people from any generation is that their concept of history begins the day they are born. They were born into a perfect time and since then it has gotten all screwed up. But, according to your grandfather, he was born into a perfect time and since then, your generation screwed everything up.

    Children of the 90′s didn’t create unchecked abortion. That was a much earlier generation. Children of the 80′s didn’t create entitlements that allowed everyone to eventually live of the government. Social Savings account was created by FDR much earlier. Presidents manipulating history and creating a new culture. That didn’t begin with Obama. Don’t believe me, see Woodrow Wilson for more details.

    I could go on and on about problems other generations have created, but I won’t. It would probably go right over your head. The worst thing you can do to another person is challenge their world view. And your view is one of those that believe that you were born into eve, and everyone younger than you screwed it up.

    The greatest fault of every generation is being born into the world someone else created. Stop complaining and find solutions.

    FatherofTwo, You are correct in saying we need a real leader. You are entirely wrong in saying we don’t need a PR department. I think most of us on this website would agree that Ronald Reagan was the last great leader this country had. Why was he so effective? The man spent years in Hollywood. He knew how to deliver and time a message in the most effective way.

    You don’t earn a reputation as the Teflon President by not being able to control your own message.
    That is the problem with a lot of the candidates on the republican side. Half are like Jeb Bush, they will agree with whatever they think will get the elected that cycle. The other half, the half I like, get bogged down with social issues questions and allow the media to paint them as whatever the media wants to portray them as.

    Take a look at George W Bush. Now, the man was wrong a lot more than he was right. But this isn’t about his being wrong or right. Look at the way the media was able to manipulate anything and everything he did on a nightly basis. Bush wasn’t a fighter. He felt the best course of action was to not respond, and allow the media to say whatever they wanted thinking it would all blow over.

    Ronald Reagan would have been in front of a camera every day not only telling you why they are wrong, but why he is right. That is why a strong PR president who is FIRST a great leader is ABSOLUTELY needed.

    I don’t know if Trump is the right man for the job. I also don’t his true religious convictions. Having said that, I’ve never met the man. I can no more say he is or isn’t a christian then I can someone who writes a beautiful faith filled comment on the blaze. These days you just really don’t know the true motives behind the things people do. However, he has been consistent, and unapologetic, over the past 6 years, regarding his proclaimed faith, and has yet to put his name on a ballot. As a business man, a proclamation of faith isn’t one of the first marketing tools you use.

    I can say this, dating back to 2011, Trump has talked about his evolving views on social issues. I’ve seen trump say several times that he supports marriage to remain between a man and a woman, and that at one point in his life he was pro choice. He admits that he was wrong on these issues and he is now pro life and supports traditional marriage. He stated in one particular interview that a growing faith was the catalyst for the change in thought.

    Does that mean I’m convinced of Trumps faith? No. But I do know that in 2015, to say that you support traditional marriage and are pro life, is like putting a bulls eye on your back to the left and moderates and according to the media which Trump is a part if, is the quickest way to lose an election.

    With Jesus, nothing is impossible. Maybe trump has been going through a spiritual growth. I don’t know. But maybe.

    I work part time at a 7-11 at night. So many people come in and buy sandwiches with EBT cards, then pull out cash to buy beer, cigarettes and lottery. It drives me insane to see any man with the ability to work just live off the government. They need to start drug and alcohol testing these people. I’m tired of seeing people get assistance because they are to lazy to work, while this man who served his country and is surviving cancer goes hungry.
    If anyone deserves assistance on the backs of the American Taxpayer its this man right here. And I’m happy for him to get it. The rest of these leeches who are lazy, or can’t keep their legs closed long enough to not get pregnant and get a job can shove that card through a different slot.

    This is something NO democrat understands and most republicans refuse to admit. Mike Huckabee said in a recent interview that “no american wants to be poor. They are hard working people that have been beaten down by a bad economy.” Keep pandering Mike, Keep buying votes, but you wont get mine. I think Most, not all these losers on EBT and welfare don’t want to be poor, but they are to lazy to work to make it on their own. Its far easier when the government will provide for you.

    Take from the leeches and give to heros like Clarence Blackmon

    Molly, I’m not trying to be funny. I mean this in all seriousness. When did C— become the N word for women? I’m not trying to say that he should have said it. But at the end of the day, its just a word. I’ve heard women actually say, “You can call me a B—-, but never call me a C—.” Whats the difference?

    Actually, I don’t care. Because if there is an actual explanation, then people have put way to much thought into it.

    I live by the golden rule. Never call a lady anything degrading. If a woman acts like a B—- C— S—- or anything else, then she isnt a lady, and call her whatever.

    A bit sensitive are you JHofKS. I apologize that my critique of the story has shattered you to the very core. I now understand that people like you have a deep desire to know the stories about Kanye and His baby, or who Brittany Spears is dating, and the rantings of some guy on facebook followed by the crying of the lady who was bullied online.

    Its stories like this, and people like you that make me realize that people of today are very sensitive and very defensive. Words hurt. I am sorry if I have offended you.

    Slow news day?

    I can’t believe a news crew actually went to someones house to report on this story.

    (Up Next, Kathy Johnson has a relationship status update on her profile and here is a hint. “Its complicated.” Tonight at 11.)

    I recently took a second job at 7-11 to make extra money. I work 70 plus hours a week. Thing is, I like working. I like staying busy, and I like having the extra money. But this has proven to be one of the most difficult jobs I’ve ever had. No, it isn’t labor intensive. It isn’t difficult work. Actually its quite easy. What makes this job such a pain is through out any given day, half of the people who pay for things pay using their snap card. (Food stamps.)

    I have the “joy” smiling at people who come up to my counter hand me a sandwich to scan and pay for it on their snap card. Then, on a separate transaction, pull out a wad of cash to pay for their beer, cigarettes and lottery.

    Huckabee said in this interview that “People don’t want to be poor.” You are right Mike. People don’t want to be poor. The problem is people want to be rich without having to work, and people like you facilitate their need to be lazy, without having to be poor.

    Their is a large segment of the population that are just lazy Mike Huckabee. It’s time we stop having compassion for them and start calling them what they truly are. LAZY. There was a time when an alcoholic was known as a drunk. But now he has a medical disease. When getting high meant you were a stoner. Now it’s just medication to numb the pain. And living off food stamps meant you were a welfare case. Now it’s compassion for those who are employment Challenged.

    We need someone with less “compassion” and more guts.

    LMFAO, The prizes are set prior to the contestants. It isn’t the their fault that at the moment that prize was to come up, a lady with no legs was the one who was playing.

    Lighten up, its one of those random at chance moments.

    He was talking about a diet he was on not to long ago. He said he lost 100 lbs in 4 months by eating only veggies for a while. Whether that is true or he is covering for a health problem I don’t know, but that is what he said recently.

    Really? Was that a meltdown? Were things really unraveling? That is the worst description of a video I’ve ever seen.

    Try this one. “Analyst becomes slightly annoyed at questions during interview.”

    If this video does show us one thing, nobody in the news, in any capacity or form is willing to answer questions because they are scared of not looking brilliant on air.

    Once he said “I’m not black, white, red or yellow — nothing. I am an American.” it took about 2 seconds for the interview to be over.

    Somewhere at CNN a producer heard that and said. “Cut to something else, this doesn’t fit the narrative.”
    And just like that, “Back to you in the studio.”

    How do we know the uncle wasn’t at fault and needed a good family butt whooping. I’m guessing if 7 family members are watching, then the uncle must have done something pretty bad.

    Does MindTheGOP know that Ted Cruz’s mother is by birth an American Citizen. Does Mind the GOP know that even though Ted Cruz was born in Canada, her American citizenship passes to Ted Cruz.

    Does Mind the GOP know that Schwarzenegger’s mother and father were not American Citzens so there is no way he could be a natural born citizen considering he was born in Austria to Austrians.

    I think the bigger question is, which one are you Lynn? Are you a tyrant, a drunk or a stoner?

    It has nothing to do with arrogance, ignorance, or perfection.
    I refuse to be a slave to a tyrant, to alcohol or to weed.
    I can’t find happiness in the government, in a bottle, or in the smoke.
    Maybe that’s your thing. I don’t care. But like I said, there isn’t much difference.

  • April 23, 2015 at 9:20pm

    You can keep your tyrants, drunks and stoners. There really isn’t much difference between them.
