    Depending on your state, there is “No Parking” which is leaving a vehicle unattended and there is “no stopping or standing” which is sitting in a vehicle where it can be moved if necessary. In my state the woman would not be in violation of “No Parking” as she could readily move the vehicle in case of emergency. I had a similar run in a few years back while waiting for a family member outside a store. I was polite to the officer who threatened me with a ticket and told him to double check with his superiors lest he waste both our times in court as I would request his presence there. A short time in communication with the station and I was told there was not a problem.

    Cubs are not in “litters” and are large enough to travel with the sow this time of years. Killing a sow with cubs is illegal in NC.

    Lots of record book bears coming from eastern NC. Our boars do not hibernate, hibernation being a function of food availability more than temperature in the South. Our bears feed year round, grazing winter wheat, even robbing stress killed swine from hog farms. I have a couple of friends whose junior high and high school daughters have killed bears upwards of 600 and 700 pounds. A 782 pounder was killed just 3 days ago in Hyde County. State record is from Craven County- 880 pounds.

    Looks like a spindle to me. Tail gear from a light aircraft , maybe?

    I keep lap top closed, attached to keyboard and larger HD monitor. I see you – you can’t see me.

    I hate stories that say one thing and their graphics show another. This story is one of them. Child gun death stats include 20 yos and under involved in criminal/ gang activity- a choice they made or participated in themselves. These are not all innocents slaughtered by others or by tragic accident.

    Vet deaths according to the graphic come to 8,086 per year, not the number shown. Makes me doubt the veracity of the whole thing.

    Meteors, the pic is definitely not fake. I’ve kept fresh water game fish in aquariums particularly largemouth bass for years. Starting when they are only 3 or so inches long they will try to eat anything they can fit in their mouth. That includes other bass 25% smaller than themselves and down. And it doesn’t matter how much forage fish (baitfish) you keep in the tank with them. Whether feeding or just “strike reflex” a large mouth will ingest any other fish it can fit that bucket shaped mouth around.

    It was filmed and aired on “Pigman- the Series” episode name “Aporkalypse Now” on Sportsman’s Channel. You can see full episode on Sportsman’s Channel website. Had huge ground crews at the ranches to recover hogs that were rooting up acres of newly sprouted corn and other grain fields.

    No doubt the killings happened. What fuels this is distrust of the media and conflicting reports with no evidence or attempt at corrections (if there are any) Case in point- live TV reported that an AR style rifle had been recovered from the vehicle and that pistols were used in the assault. This was during daylight hours in the afternoon. However there was footage shot from an overhead boom camera of a shotgun being removed from the trunk after dark. There are no crime scene photos available. No I don’t want to see dead kids, but how about all the spent AR or pistol brass scattered about? Google it for yourself. ALL photos have been seized. There will be no trial since the shooter is dead. Why seal the evidence photos if they show that the deadly AR style rifle was used ? And like Band of Brothers states where is security footage of the weapon used?

    Gee and all this time I thought thugs bought stolen black market weapons out of the trunks of cars in secluded alley ways. Been to dozens of gun shows and am in a club that has one in conjunction with a sportsman’s show. I’ll have to keep an eye pealed for thugs at our show.

    As a North Carolinian , and fisherman familiar with the tournament the argument that not having the license was not specified as grounds for disqualification of without merit. Other rules, geographical limits on where you can fish, hours that are legal to fish, etc. are all grounds for disqualification if broken and everyone knows it. Blanket licenses for boats apply only to for hire charters and any captain in the tournament knows that also, especially one from this state. When you spend the thousands of dollars of entry fees ($18,000 last year to be in the top tier prize wise) to fish the Big Rock, have literally millions invested in boat and gear you can darn well bet the captain had read the rules , having attended the captain’s meeting or not. Citation screwed up. They need to get over it.

    Ironic the choice of pictures. Alaska Ranger sunk in 2008 with 5 fatalities.

    Add to the mix that swift boat veteran turned ant-war activist “I threw someone else’s medals over the White House Fence” John Kerry is being considered for Secretary of Defense.

    A king would be holding a sceptor. A thug a baseball bat. Zero-man should be holding a *****.

    Jack Reacher is 6-4 lower 200lbs. Jason Statham IS Jack Reacher. Maybe Tom is going to play the Mini-Me version of Reacher. Or maybe the screenwriter and casting people misread Lee Child’s books and think Reacher is a Ninja Smurf hence the casting screw up.

    This is really a no brainer folks. When our so-called leaders who are members of the Progressive Caucus attend international meetings of like minded folks the organizational name used in the rest of the world is Socialists International.The Progressive Caucus was founded by the Democratic Socialists of America, the USA branch of Socialists International. This isn’t a secret. You can find it on their organizations own website. Does O’Brien know how to search the internet?
