    @Brainz
    Did you miss the part where he had something that looked like a gun and made threats? Either of them would have been justified in assuming their life was in danger. I hope for your sake you’re never in a life and death situation, because it’s obvious your reasoning abilities are insufficient for making hard decisions in stressful circumstances, so you’ll end up dead.
    I don’t think taking human life is good, but there are worse things. To take a life isn’t to treat someone other than as human. Humans who threaten the lives of others deserve to be killed, period. Robbing the convenience store may not be worthy of death, by itself, but the problem is that it’s hard to do without threatening the safety of others, which is worthy of death.

    Well of course she’s sticking to her talking points. They can’t afford to let her go off script because every time she does she alienates people because she exposes what a piece of garbage she really is. It is shocking that even the sanitized, scripted version of this lady (using the term loosely) is still so offensive and grating.

    It’s a shame neither of them were carrying. I know, he’s only a kid, but seriously, let’s assign probabilities to a couple of possible outcomes:
    1. Kid realizes he’s got issues and straightens up (I hope this is what happens)
    2. Kid does time in juvy, where the poor culture he most likely inherited at home is amplified by the other trash there, only to embark on a long career of escalating crime and barbarity (most likely to happen).
    Again, I know he’s a kid, but when you play adult games, you get adult consequences!

    Get ready for North Korea or Saddam Hussein version 3.0. Here’s how it goes: we claim to have saved the world because we have an agreement, Iran makes token gestures like they’re playing along just long enough to move their money and oil and get some aid packages, then they stop cooperating until they need sanctions lifted for a short time again, then rinse lather and repeat. It’s bad enough when someone smart (albeit evil) like Putin shows what fools our elected leaders are, but it’s downright insulting to our collective intelligence when losers like Saddam, Kim Jong Il/Un, and Khomeni can play our leaders for the fools they are.

    Was it Joe Wilson who shouted “you lie” during Obama’s speech? Whoever it was is looking a lot less crazy now.

    @Stamp
    I appreciate your respect for human life lost, even when deserved. That is healthy. In my opinion, the concern for the shooter is kind, but we as a society overstate the trauma associated with justifiable homicide. I understand that everyone is different and I have a small sample size, but I was involved in a fatal self-defense shooting, and never for one minute have I felt guilt or second-guessed the actions I took. I am sad that another human lost their life, and I’m sad that they made choices that brought them to that point, but I have not had one moment of mental anguish over what I did. It’s been a few years now, but every so often I have one of those moments where I see my wife or kids and I’m proud that they are happy and unharmed because I can handle myself under pressure. The only thing that bothers me is that the incident occurred in my bedroom, and that tends to take away any sense of security you have. Likewise, this man, I suspect, isn’t bothered about taking a life, but his sense of safety and security is probably damaged.

    There are no atheists in foxholes. It’s sad that she was so “brave” right up until faced with the imminence of her plans, and only then she realizes that life does have meaning and value. I pity her, and wish her the greatest happiness available to her, though I have little confidence she has the wisdom to find it.

    I think it’s unfortunate that we can’t have intelligent conversations with the left on this subject so we’re left to show the stupidity of their position among ourselves. Someday there will be an honest conversation about guns, right?

    This is the conundrum of conservatism: we make places that have good economies and low crime, which attracts the idiots from the liberal places who destroy what we build. Parasites can’t survive without a host (best example: Detroit).

  • [15] October 29, 2014 at 3:33pm

    Exactly. When I see events or businesses with gun bans, I interpret that as their having asked me not to come, because I don’t go places where I can’t protect myself or where the people setting security policy are that stupid.

    I have to confess I’m not familiar with this guy or his record, but from an outside perspective, this looks like a RINO who figured out that he’s spent his entire time in office alienating the people who elected him while pandering to the leftists, and now realizes that he’s going to lose because the Dems are better at being fascists to lure the fascists, and conservatives won’t vote for liberals pretending to be conservative. If this is the case, let it be a lesson to all Republicans!

    Don’t give me that line, if you were about federalism in the area of public health, how do you explain Obamacare?

    I don’t remember reports of the Obama Administration or the Democratic Party offering training and administrative support to the Russian Federation on matters of finance.

    If I were to be the next president, I would open up every bit of the crap they’ve tried to hide on this situation, Benghazi, and I would shut the IRS down and make literally every employee work on finding Lois Lerner’s emails until they were found, then I’d start with the prosecutions. It doesn’t seem like Obama will pardon these people on the way out the door, because to do so would be to admit to what they’ve done.

    Here it comes: 1) ban shooting ranges, for public health reasons of course (“this is not about an anti-gun agenda, I support the Second Amendment” is what they’ll say. 2) limit the amount of ammunition anyone can buy over time so they can’t make themselves sick by shooting too much. Predictable

    This doesn’t even seem newsworthy to me. We all know ISIS wants to attack here, didn’t take a leaked memo to tell us that. It’s pretty obvious that anything symbolizing American might is a target (financial, law enforcement, and military sectors are the obvious ones). This seems like leaking a memo describing how sex offenders tend to repeat their crimes. We already knew that.

    I renew my previous call for public execution of any public official involved in this brazen attack on fundamental liberty. We fought a war against a king over this kind of garbage.

    I should offer a correction, by forcing background checks, they have put in a gun registry, but it is incomplete for now and it’s certainly not overt.

  • [2] October 23, 2014 at 2:02pm

    There is absolutely no risk associated with giving the government information about everything you eat. They couldn’t get the gun registry, so they’re starting a food registry?
