Google+ comments have disappeared. Not able to enable any comments.

I can't seem to get comments working on my blog. I moved over to the new Google+ comment system and it seemed to be working initially. I do not check my blog that often, so I only noticed yesterday that it didn't seem like people could comment. I tried to revert template modifications and mess with the layout, but nothing seems to help. Any ideas? I'd like Google+ comments to work, but anything would be better than what I have now, which is nothing.

I do notice that you have added Adsense code to the actual posts which could be causing problems with your blog post gadget functioning correctly...Adsense code isn't really created for being inside the post itself, but instead between posts, on the sidebar and in banners at the top and bottom of the blog. Did you add the Adsense code to the post template or are you just adding it to each post as you create it manually? When you go to the blog post gadget in the Layout portion of your blog and click on Edit, do you see the comments check marked there?

Here's some additional information. I can still see the Google+ comments on blogs before this one:
 
http://yankeehacker.blogspot.com/2013/06/cs-reading-list.html
 
But blogs after that one do not have the form for Google+ comments. I can even see the opening for comments when there aren't any:
 
http://yankeehacker.blogspot.com/2012/11/gratitude.html
 
You can also see the change from my main page, where if you scroll down you won't see any mention of comments until the reading list post, but then you do see it.
 
You can even see the 0 comment link:

So, anybody know what happened between June 12th and June 15th to break my comments?

I added the inline ads through clicking on "Show Ads Between Posts" in the Configure Blog Posts widget of the Layout tab. I also have clicked the box next to "5 comments" that I think you are referring to.
 
As an experiment I just turned off the inline ads and I still do not see the comments after the June 12th post.
 
I copied the text from my template editor into the attached text file, if that helps anybody in debugging this.

Okay, as far as Adsense goes, I see what you are saying now...the way your template is set up, that first post looks like the ad is in the post but it is because the template puts a border around all posts from that date and because there is only one post, it isn't noticable that it is in between posts. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for clarifying.

When you go into edit the June 15th post, and click on the options on the right side, do you see that showing comments is checked there?

Bingo! Not sure what I did to change my default, but it seems like that was the problem. Thank you very much!
