    I love it! He’s definitely been warned!

    Shoot to stop the threat, not to kill. I know the result is the same, but it really matters for prosecutors, juries, and judges. You know they aren’t a threat when they quit moving, so until that point, shoot to stop the threat.

    I don’t recall reading the “you must serve everyone who patronizes your business” clause of the Constitution, so I don’t see the violation. The First Amendment talks about Congress making laws prohibiting the free exercise of religion, but Jan isn’t Congress. Same issue applies to arguments about due process and equal protection – they apply to the government, not private citizens. When did we inherit our inalienable right to service in other people’s establishments?

    Sounds like everything has gone according to plan. The massive social programs and ridiculous minimum wage laws have done precisely what they were supposed to: create a permanent disenfranchised class who will keep in power those who promise to take from the top and give to the bottom. Sounds eerily familiar…

    I find it a little insulting that they’re sending out notices that people need to prove they’re entitled to my money with a note from their employer or a paystub.

    Perhaps an even better response would be for the media to boycott the admin until they start allowing actual reporting.

    I open carry at work. I love the employees’ faces when they ask what the rules are about carrying at work and I tell them our policy is to obey the law. Most of them can’t imagine that they’re allowed, let alone that they don’t have to tell me or get permission or fill out a waiver or something equally stupid. Where I work is probably the worst possible place to attempt workplace violence without an armored vehicle.

    Where can I donate to this guy? I’m proud of his actions and elated that society has to put up with that much less trash thanks to his actions. More of this and our country might just turn for the better!

    Too bad the establishment will cannibalize him before they’ll let him reform the party into actual principle-based conservatism. They will not let him win the presidency while remaining strict to principles because it undermines their attempt to get the rest of us to abandon principles in pursuit of electoral victory. And they know that they’ll never have the power they want if we refuse to abandon principles.

    Exactly. Raise your hand if you’ve been subjected to mercury poisoning. Anyone? Were you raising…oh, just scratching your head, nevermind. This sounds like an expensive (though they claim it isn’t) solution to a non-existent problem. Aliens might attack us from outer space, but I don’t see anyone rushing to build an advance warning system to spot them coming from two galaxies away. Let’s stick with fixing actual problems rather than hypothetical ones.

    When you don’t have anything of substance to say, go for the ad hominem attacks. When your constituents have poor logic skills, as is always the case for Democrats, this kind of garbage is really effective.

    I hate when they make us play by the rules in the Constitution. That’s so hard!

    I hope my kids do that well in that kind of situation! Oldest is 6, so I haven’t given them full access to the guns yet, but they’ve been to the range with me before. I would be so proud of my kid in that situation.

    It would seem teaching people not to be promiscuous might be useful also, but that’s unpopular because it might feel slightly moral.

    Reason to think they have nefarious intent: they are foreign soldiers running from law enforcement in our country.
    Reason to think public safety is in question: see above.
    Alternate answer to both of the above: the State Department authorized them being here in the first place, and we all know what their goals are.

    Anyone who knows their stuff about creating a real breach knows that you start will small, seemingly insignificant ones. These are helpful in exposing what security is in place so you can better plan to defeat it. You send a crazy over the fence so you know how far he gets, and where the guards are hiding along the way. This is poking, prodding, testing, and trying, all so they’ll be ready when the time comes for the real attack. The key is to make sure nobody can connect the dots and see what you’re trying to do.

    You know, if there’s a positive side to these animals’ behavior, it may be that they remind us how to actually fight wars. I don’t mean this mamby-pamby read everyone their rights and give them lawyers and refuse to put boots on the ground and cry over collateral damage kind of war we fight for PR purposes. I mean dropping atomic bombs, firebombing, storming the beaches kind of ****-kicking we used to be known for back when we had spines and knew how to actually fight wars.
    Short term, they’re more dedicated than we are, so they’ll win and Obama will be exposed once again as the biggest pushover in US history. But here’s hoping long term we figure out that there are worse things than collateral damage or unfairly profiling.

    That was my exact thought when I read that she’s doing interviews for Politico. Really, you can talk to them but you invoke the 5th Amendment when Congress wants to talk? Put her on trial, there is no reasonable doubt she knew what she was doing.

  • [21] September 19, 2014 at 2:14pm

    Don’t you get it? They’re just offering their “protection” from those who might try to hurt you! This is really an offer you can’t refuse! I didn’t realize Al Capone sat on their board!

    “That’s the biggest scam in the Bay Area,” John said.
    Wrong, Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer are in a tight race for that honor.
