    Thinking about this, I realize how little you understand anything. I want you to look up murder statistics that involve illegal firearms. The vast majority of murders are commited with illegally obtained firearms. The problem with people like you is that you have no interest in enforcing the laws that we already have.

    It’s like a politician talking about immigration reform. Rather than enforce the laws we already have, we do nothing but talk about the need for new laws.

    Is weed illegal? In most places it is. But I’d be willing to bet that if you wanted some, you know someone who could get it to you within an hour. But wait, we already have drug legislation. That means nobody should have the ability to use it.
    The reason I ask that is because the gun legislation you, and other like you want to pass would only remove guns from the hands of law abiding citizens. But i’d be willing to bet, someone who is desperate to get a gun, would have as little trouble getting it just like it is no trouble for you to get your weed. Your stupid laws only punish those who obey the law.

    Understand both sides, please understand this. I’m not trying to diminish his pain. I’m not trying to diminish his loss. But how we react to adversity says a lot about who we are. Not 24 hours after his daughter was killed, he has decided to politicize her death and become and advocate for gun control.

    You also didn’t answer my question. How do we legislate ones ability to get a weapon based on their mental state. Are you going to force everyone who wants to buy a gun to take a mental evaluation. Are we going to become a nanny state in that everyone who makes an off color remark must be reported so that their names can be checked on a data base to see if they own a gun. This country is so full of hate, ask a democrat or republican if either side is mentally stable based on their beliefs. So if democrats are in power, does that disqualify republicans from owning guns. According to the news media, every single one of these mass killers was reportedly a tea party member active in right wing racist hate groups. Until of course the truth comes out.

    The truth is, the whole isn’t greater than the individual. The individual is the smallest minority, and his rights must be protected. That includes the right to keep and have arms. I can’t take seriously the thoughts of people who think a woman has the right to kill the unborn, but the idea of someone owning a gun scares them. Or those who think those who produce nothing are owed by those who produce for themselves.

    His poor daughter hasn’t even been dead for 24 hours and the father is already politicizing the issue. I guess that pretty much says everything we need to know about his voting history.

    The reality is, the killer should have never had a gun. He was a self described powder keg. But how does one legislate gun control like this. Does it mean that his co-workers failed to report him to all gun shops and put his name in a data base to ensure he couldn’t buy one. Are we to allow the government to access all our private property to ensure we intend no harm with a gun. Would I go to a gun dealer, and pick out a gun, then allow them to access a facebook, twitter, blaze account, or whatever other online crap people use over a three day waiting period.

    This guy was not crazy. It is dismissive to call him crazy. Buy calling him a crazy person, we take responsibility away from him for his actions. This guy was a cold blooded calculated killer. He put a lot of thought into what he was going to do. He knew what he was going to do. He is evil. But not crazy. You can stop crazy people from accessing guns. You can spot crazy because its a mental disorder. This man was cold and calculated, and the sad fact is, there is no legislation that anyone can enact to stop people like him.

    So this dad is just using his daughters death to push an agenda he has believed in for a lot longer than just today. And that is as equally sad.

    I don’t think any of those three have come out and endorsed Trump for republican nomination. At most I believe Limbaugh and Hannity have said is, 1. They know Trump personally and that he has always been a good guy. 2. They are sick of seeing the mainstream media pick our Republican candidate. 3. That he is the only one out there actually saying what tens of millions of us believe, politicians are stupid. Do you know what they HAVE NOT said. (especially Limbaugh) I endorse Trump in 2016.

    Glenn asked some fair questions. I hope Trump answers them. I like Trump, but I don’t know enough about him and where he stands to be sold. That is why I’m still firmly in the CRUZ 16 column. But if having him out there to tear down Hillary Clinton and other lifer politicians means a new conservative might have a better chance at winning, then I say pass Donald the microphone. Example… Ted Cruz’s numbers went up after that first debate.

    Yes Glenn, you have fair and honest questions. I have some to. Glenn, were you for or against boarder security when you sent toys to the illegals? Do you stand with Israel in our stance to not allow Iran to get a Nuclear bomb, or has your love of all things Libertarianism changed your view? Glenn, in that video of you in the hospital bashing private health care an endorsement for single payer healthcare? Were years of not liking Rubio all erased because he scored points with you in the first debate?

    I still love you Glenn.

    Time to mute time to mute cause your little song blows.

    I’m not the biggest fan of Trump, but the parts I do like about him are his willingness to call politicians stupid,and to call rosie odennel a fat pig. I should wright a power ballad about that and have my mom put it on youtube.

    So the male is just hanging out, minding his own business when the female lashes out in a fit of hormonal rage.
    Sounds like Megan Kelly and Donald Trump at the debate.

    Ben Carson is a phenomenally smart man. He is a neurosurgeon. He has to be brilliant. Having said that, if I was arrested and put on trial for something I didn’t do, I would not want Ben Carson to be my lawyer.

    I’m not writing Ben Carson off. He still has a chance to earn my vote. Having said that, I want to know what Carson’s strategy is for dealing with the middle east. How he plans to build an alliance and destroy our enemies. Blanket statements like, “Take the fight to them and not leave till we win” isn’t a strategy, its a slogan. Having said that, had he gotten a health care question, he probably would have knocked it out of the park. Being an outsider comes with a certain level of freshness. Not being a career politician is definitely a plus.

    To be fair, with 10 people sharing a stage, and 3 of those sucking out all the air in the room ( Trump, Bush, Christie,) Its hard to get a full understanding of Carson. I want to know that he isn’t ignorant to how the world works. Just because he is a good christian man, and a brilliant surgeon doesn’t mean he is ready for the Job of president.

    My plumber knows everything there is to know about plumbing, and there isn’t a problem he couldn’t fix. He has so many certificates and training regarding plumbing. He owns his own business and goes to church every Sunday. But he cant tell me who the president of Syria is or the difference between sunni’s, shia’s or isis. So I don’t know that I would ask him to defeat our enemies.

  • [4] August 7, 2015 at 9:47pm

    I think Christie did well from a debate point of view, but we all know he is a RINO. Same witch Huckabee. I think he did well, but I would also classify him as more of an establishment guy. I think Rubio and Cruz did very well for themselves. And to be honest, I am a HUGE CRUZ fan. I have questions about Rubio regarding his stance on immigration. But all and all he did very well last night. I think Scott Walker got lost in the mix a little bit. I think Ben Carson did very well for the first time in a debate. If he can polish his message a little more, I think he can surprise some people.

    I think Ron Paul came off poorly last night. He is right on the issues often, but the way he handled himself last night won’t win him any voters based that performance.


  • August 7, 2015 at 9:40pm

    I like Trump, but have my hesitations. I want to know where he stands on all the issues. I also want to know if his views are genuine or if he is a campaign conservative. Having said that, I’ll say this. I didn’t learn any of what I was hoping to last night. Why? Because Fox news, in particular Megan Kelly, wanted to play King Maker last night. They wanted to see what its like be MSNBC, or CNN and try and make, and then Break a candidate. Watching Megan after the debate congratulate herself and the other two moderators on such a good job proves my point. I think FOX would be better served having Brit Hume handle these special events. He was objective and as honest as a reporter can be. Isn’t it sad that after this debate, I think CNNs Jake Trapper will do a better Job moderating a debate then those three clowns did last night.

    They wanted to tear down Trump, he was the target. Look at the types of questions he got last night compared to the others. By my count, trump was asked one legitimate policy question last night. The rest were about his tone, his political correctness, a business that filed bankruptcy.

    Having said that, I’ll say this. I think Trump handled it poorly. He kept putting his hands out when he got booed. He came off as a man who hasn’t been questioned in 30 years and he didn’t know how to handle it.

    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.

    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.
