  1. Playing the player and not the ball I see. I believe that IS the point of this thread. It's precisely what you've done with ChrisD, yet, he's far more qualified than yourself since he at least has the courage to identify who he is rather than hide like a coward behind anonymity. Ah, more personal attacks from you... It seems it is how you operate. Might want to read this: http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=1580205;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread
  2. I can see that, and he seems to employ it with great vigor.
  3. And he never said he wanted to carry them all. Hence you tried to answer a question that was not asked. And I see you keep trying to play the player.
  4. Playing the player and not the ball I see. Is this your standard MO? But maybe we should ask to see your qualifications to give 'expert' advice on firearms?
  5. Yes reading is fundamental. I have provided the quote were he asked about keeping the single firearm in his car. Please provide the quote that supports your position and your claim that he wants to carry all of them.
  6. 1. It is not evasion if I answer your questions. 2. You need to read up a bit on supply and demand. Maybe start with something about Ford and work up to Adam Smith. But what you will find is you can't use the invisible hand if it is in handcuffs. And the ACA does not work for many young people who will be forced to pay higher premiums so a 25 year old single male can have maternity care.
  7. The bomb placed at the Boston Bombing finish line was not too difficult to figure out. As for the information being 'restricted', I very much doubt that engineers are not allowed to learn the mathematical formulas in school. I know plenty of construction guys that could point out the weak points in buildings even without doing the math.
  8. He was presenting a false dilemma. There were more options that he gave and you will notice the options he gave were only beneficial to his point of view. And if we allowed competition (point one I made) and had a published billed rate for services (point number two), then people would be more likely to get care sooner instead of waiting for it to become an emergency.
  9. Lower the cost to entry and you would see more people with insurance. Simply supply and demand in action. I answered his question. You don't like the answer and that is not my fault. He was using A false dilemma fallacy. You are now attacking me because... well, I can only guess because it is your style.
  10. I read some of your posts. You gave bad advice about recurrent jumping. When that was pointed out with a reference to the actual SIM, you ignored it and continued acting like an expert. It also seems that one of the people you were disagreeing with was actually an instructor and one that was familiar with the student program that was being discussed. How do you figure a guy without a rating and was shown to be wrong in the SIM knows more than a guy that provided the SIM as proof and is an instructor in the very school being talked about?
  11. According to some reports you have only a B and no instructional ratings at all. If you are giving a review of a movie, no. But if you are trying to give skydiving advice, then yes your experience matters. Bollocks. Most people are interested in making sure only those with real knowledge and experience give technical advice. Do you have a tandem rating (I know the answer). If not, then you might want to not comment on how difficult it can be. Chap, you do not have ANY ratings. So maybe you should not give skydiving advice and you should not be commenting on "the complexities of skydiving".
  12. More lies, presented, as always, without any pretense of proof. Oh great arbitor of class Please tell us more You made the lying claim. You present a link, any link, to support your lie. And I stand by it And many here have posted agreement
  13. Another sneaking into the house tragedy. If she had not tried to sneak in, nothing would of happened. If there was not a gun he might have bashed her head in with a bat.
  14. Yes, because the ghost of Emmett Till implores it to be. That's the short version. As a society, we either get it or we don't. I've lost patience with repeating the long version. I fear the ghosts of our past prevent us from embracing the future. Those who fail to learn from the ghosts of the past are condemned to rot in the past. Those who focus on the ghosts of the past will see the ghosts everywhere they look.
