    Kairo.. as tempting as it is to see some sort of grand scheme going on behind this crazy mixed up world, I just don’t buy it. We should be vigilant, but not so hyper-vigilant that we see pattern and forethought where there probably is none.

    John – what do you think happened? Glenn blew a lot of hot air about it, but when you put the story under scrutiny, there really isn’t much there. A bit like Benghazi.

    Thanks for that very rational breakdown, Kiwi.

    Perhaps, and this is a wild punt, perhaps the Boston bombings got sightly more police resources than this case?

    Where was the Blaze’s coverage of that amputee finishing army air assault training? Musta missed that one, although of course they covered Jason Collins extensively…

    Oh and guys, stop calling Obama a socialist… He’s a conservative stooge and doesn’t have a marxist bone in his body.

    You are right. What’s the purpose of issuing visas if they aren’t checked? This is negligence that goes back years.

    I don’t doubt the guy sincerely wants to be straight (unless he’s simply grubbing for a little more time in the media spotlight). But this does seem to be a little sudden, and let’s be honest, the guy doesn’t seem to be the most mentally stable? Perhaps life as a gay sucks for him and he feels he needs to try something different. Good luck to him, but i find it hard not to imagine this is going to work out well.

    Going back into the closet? Ahhhh, i see what you did there! ;-P

    Well to be honest mentally ill is probably about right, Kenny. Hebrew Israelite indeed! lol

    Well it makes sense as it reduces the need for spare capacity needed in power demand spikes, ie surplus power plants which cost money to build and run. That said, it would be naive to expect power companies to pass savings on to the consumer!

    Perhaps they should offer a rebate to consumers who have these devices fitted?

    Just guessing, indeed…

    Totally with the UN, and the experts behind this policy, on this one. I heard a radio interview with one of the pioneers of robotics and AI – he was very stark in his warning about giving machines the power to decide human life or death. Aside from the moral issues, he said the technologies are nowhere near the level of sophistication required and could not see that day coming in the foreseeable future.

    Cancel the program and put the money into something that will help us right now. How about helping veterans get themselves started in business and contributing to the economy?

    The issue of consent is key, and a key difference between pedophiles and normal gay or straight people. I don’t know of any gay spokesperson saying non consensual sex or sex with minors is acceptable. I suppose if you look hard you would be able to find gay AND straight nut jobs who would defend sex with minors, but the vast majority, and the LAW, disagrees.

    Benghazi is in Libya, not Syria.

    Syria is a larger, better armed, and better governed country than Libya. That’s reason one to stay out of the conflict. Reason two would be the lessons learned from Libya itself. Al Qaeda moves into the political vacuum created when these dictators toppled, locking the USA into an ongoing presence in those countries. That said, perhaps that is what the American military industrial complex actually wants!

    Hmmm, the first clinic told her she was too far gone, and that didn’t tell her something? It was wrong of the clinic to point her in the direction of an illegal clinic, but she must have realised there was something fishy going on. But she carried on regardless…

    I actually think stories like these would do a lot to influence pro-choicers to re-evaluate their position, especially re late term abortion. I don’t think any reasonable person could approve of killing a viable live born fetus (aka a baby). The obvious and disturbing question is ‘whats the difference killing it outside the womb compared to inside it?

    Sadly in America we seem to have to come down very strongly on one side of the argument or the other, and unfortunately pro-choicers are very entrenched in their belief in women’s right to choose. I am never going to argue that early abortions should be banned, but i feel there needs to be some middle ground on this issue, frankly.

    I hear the rule of thumb for enforcing the 260lb weight limit will be whether you can still see the bicycle seat when the rider is sitting on it.

    You’d have though that a little common sense would have dictated giving him the benefit of the doubt, since he was actually making arrangements for the gun to be picked up by his mom. But no….

    Fair enough, but it’s not the President’s job to point people in the direction of one religion or another (that would be unconstitutional, and divisive) hence the emphasis on the all general supposedly positive nature of ‘prayer’.

    That is a cat embryo. It’s more developed than a human embryo at 2 weeks (cat pregancy is much shorter).
