  1. ah how you seem to delight in posting these so you can sit on your high horse and say "I told you so... look at the traumatized kid I'm using to make my point!" asshole. Not sure why this is upsetting you so much. It is simply the price you have to pay for your freedom to have a gun. You should be sending flowers to the family thanking them for paying their 2nd Amendment dues. oh look... another asshole. I just see lots of people here who need to be called assholes. I haven't been banned in a while, so I figured it was time. -- Rob

  3. try this then http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/10/14/world/middleeast/us-casualties-of-iraq-chemical-weapons.html?_r=0 That contains much of the same story. -- Rob
  4. I expect dead horse beatings. I was just a little (only a little) bit surprised by how circular the arguments are. on one side of the argument it seems there are religious (to varying degrees) people who want to be able to defend themselves. On the other side there are people mocking christian beliefs saying that the first group shouldn't need to defend themselves in a church because their god should do it for them. When the first group is only citing a list of rights enumerated by founding fathers that are described in the enumerating document as endowed by our creator. so what it comes down to is the second group being whiney bitches complaining about the first group carrying guns (or wanting to) into some place the second group isn't likely to be anyway. This thread is even MORE petty than I'm used to here. -- Rob
  5. I thought you statists respected the NY Times? -- Rob
  6. dear god. this thread is on page 4 and the dead horse beatings continue. -- Rob
  7. well no. Not everyone. But what am I doing correcting you. You know all. -- Rob
  8. Sure you are. I'm sure not all who carry are as well trained, but I know I and the people I shoot with have had more hours of formal firearms training than most TX peace officers. I also know we get more practice time than most TX peace officers. So snort and laugh... just know your perception is not universal truth. -- Rob
  9. How would god choose to stop bad humans? Strike them down with lightning? Make them vanish? Maybe place good humans with weapons where they can stop the bad humans and inspire them to act in defense of worshipers? Who is to say how god would respond. I wouldn't guess how you would respond much less god. -- Rob
  10. Shame about all the other people who'd get shot with all the misses. I'd wager they'd do as well or better than NYPD -- Rob
  11. Ya think? http://www.syracuse.com/us-news/index.ssf/2016/04/georgia_lawmaker_gets_dui_with_kids_gun_in_car.html 72 in a 45 zone. BAC 0.225%. 4 juveniles in the car (doesn't say if they were kids or teenagers). And carrying a gun. Care to guess which party before you open the link? scumbag yes.... hypocritical scumbag? Did he get elected on his tough on drunk drivers campaign? No? So just a run of the mill scumbag. -- Rob
  12. As a matter of fact, I have. Republicans are better, though, because they espouse "law and order", "personal responsibility" and "family values" so loudly that when their hypocrisy is exposed it makes it so much more interesting. He has, but he tends to point out the scumbags in concert with their hypocrisy. As he notes, there's less of that with the other party (pick your reasons why... we won't agree) so it's not as fun to point out. And this is all about fun (and inciting internet riots) -- Rob
  13. Yes, getting belief in supernatural beings out of government will be hard work, but necessary. And reversing the shift in assets to those who are already the wealthiest will also require work. 1) big corporate taxes, no corporate subsidies... force corps to invest in themselves to avoid taxes. This leads to more productivity, more jobs more cash flow on the streets, more confidence in the economy. A) simple consumption based taxes for the populous with non-taxed goods for basic needs... tax avoidance becomes simple, don't buy taxed goods. (similar to the TX sales tax system) -- Rob
  14. You mean like - Oh - Idunno - refusing to prosecute and uphold immigration law? OK, enough about G.W. Bush. thank you for reinforcing the point. It's been going on so long that even the "blame bush" crowd think it's normal and ok. "bush did it, so it's ok for obama to do it too" -- Rob
  15. While I'm all for saying that they need to hold the hearing and either confirm or deny an appointee, declaring they need to be bypassed is taking it a bit far. Sure... something isn't being done the way you want? Bypass it! (uh... no) Remember who did what and ensure you don't vote for them again? Yup! Do that. -- Rob
  16. It's only a PA if "unknown" is a person who makes a complaint. and the mods pretty much get a pass too -- Rob
  17. says the Canadian Which may have clued you into the fact it was sarcasm. yes. I believe we've had the apology discussion before. I'll try to be less subtle next time. -- Rob
  18. Not long ago I told a friend of mine, "show me politicians who aren't corporate whores, and I'll show you two old unelectable white guys, and one of them is retired". Bernie's ideas are "interesting" but would leave about 70% of households with less spending money (even after not having to pay for health care). Removing spending money during a failing economic period is asking for trouble. -- Rob
  19. it's not too bad... there's an e where there should be an a and vice-versa. but yeah... -- Rob
  20. careful... complaining about how the moderators do their thing here is against the rules. -- Rob
  21. I mentioned "charging" as I'd heard it mentioned in a video account. Though it was hearsay. As with any incident, let's see what the official report says before we cry foul. I'll put my tinfoil back on my sandwich. My gut says nothing was done wrong here. I expect the "charging" account will not be confirmed. -- Rob
  22. yup... so what we have here is video that doesn't match either side's story. He wasn't charging at officers, nor was he clearly surrendering when he was shot. So is this a case of reality not matching recollection, or fabricated stories on both sides? Some will ask why that matters. And in this specific legal case it may not. But if it's fabrication on both sides, it makes you wonder why both sides need to fabricate a story. I'm sure someone will offer me tinfoil now. I'll wrap my sandwich in it. Thank you. -- Rob
  23. In some states that is already the case. (at least the same classification as or higher than a DWI) From memory, so with a grain of salt... in TX first offense DWI is a class B misdemeanor while carrying your handgun while intoxicated is a class A misdemeanor and results in losing your license to carry for several years. The second offense DWI is a class A. -- Rob
