    I meant to type carpal tunnel. Perhaps I’ve got a bit of that myself.

    If she tried to sign a Slayer song she’d end up with capal tunnel.

    I wanted to come back and respond to your response. I completely agree, particularly with regards to the drunk driving laws. I’ve seen this so many times where the guy who has a drink or two too many and blows a point or two over the legal limit ends up getting completely raped by the system, but whenever some drunk driver crashes and kills someone they’ve got a BAC that’s off the charts and usually at least 3 or 4 prior convictions. Lowering the legal limit from .10 to .08 probably hasn’t saved a single life, yet it’s sure brought in a whole heaping helping of cash for the city budget. The drunk driving laws as they currently exist are all about generating revenue.

    They could be fixed quite easily by indexing the punishment with both the BAC of the driver and the number of previous convictions. If you’re a first-time offender who’s a point or two over the limit, you get a fine and a ride home. If you blow 20 points over the limit and you’ve got prior convictions, it’s off to prison for a good long time. Not exactly rocket science. But they’ll never do that because they’d lose revenue that way, and they’d rather lose lives than revenue.

    Well obviously neither of us has a complete command of the facts, such as what exactly the officers said to the man, or anything that the man may have done with the air rifle before the period shown in the video. So I’m open to going either way on whether or not the police acted correctly in the circumstance. I’m just saying that a guy who gets shot while wandering around Walmart with a rifle is not exactly the poster child for police misconduct.

    When I was a teenager back in the 80′s one of my friends almost got shot by the police because we were all running around the park at night with toy guns in our hands. We were just dumb teenagers having fun playing Rambo. The point is, it’s simple common sense, and has been for a long time, that if a cop spots you acting suspiciously with what appears to be a gun in your hand, you should not be too surprised when bullets start coming your way. Sure, we can microanalyze the situation now and decide whether or not the cops acted 100% appropriately, but the simple fact is if the guy hadn’t been so stupid as to be waving a rifle around in a Walmart he’d still be breathing today. I’m just not too terribly bothered by this shooting.

    Finally, I think you’re being naive if you think this protest isn’t about race. One of the benefits of “White Privilege” is that you only ever get shot when you deserve it. I would bet any amount of money that if it had been a white guy, there would have been no protests and no sign waving.

    I don’t mean to make light of a scary situation, but that picture…it just cries out for a photoshopping. I’m picturing what it would look like with the Burger King peering over the roof.

    The question now is which black man will Obama appoint to replace him?

    The idiot was walking around a Walmart brandishing a weapon and apparently refused to drop it when confronted by police. Taking down a guy who appears to be waving a rifle around in a Walmart and refuses to drop it is hardly indicative of a “police state run wild.”

    Furthermore, the reason these buffoons show up to wave around their silly little signs has NOTHING to do with a “police state run wild” but has everything to do with a black person being shot by a white cop. It’s guilty white liberals jumping up to try and take care of the poor, underprivileged black man.

    I love the picture of the protesting idiots. I wonder how many of these clowns hit the street with “clever” signs when a black man is shot dead by a black gangbanger thug? I wonder if they even bother looking up from their bongs and drum circles to notice those stories on the evening news? But let a cop shoot a black man and suddenly they toss the drums aside and take to the streets! These grandiose displays of selective outrage and insincerity tire me to no end.

    Cooking, it does a body good.

  • [3] September 24, 2014 at 6:49pm

    Wait, whatever happened to “my body, my choice”?

    I guess when it comes to vaccines, it’s “my kid’s body, my government’s choice.”

    Driving might be a right, but driving on the public roads is probably not. You’re always free to drive a car on your own private property. You can drive a car wasted on your own property. But the taxpayers own the roads, and have every right to decide who uses them and who doesn’t, and if the taxpayers don’t want drunken idiots driving on their roads, then so be it.

    That said, I think these DUI checkpoints are reminiscent of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia. Drunk driving may be a problem, but not a big enough problem to warrant these gestapo tactics.

    I wonder how Yvette would feel if we created a database of all the women who’ve had abortions? After all, guys might want to know if they’re getting involved with a selfish baby killer.

    Reagan was a liberal back when a liberal was someone who fought for liberty, unlike today’s liberals who fight for government control and socialist tyranny.

    Yeah, the picture of the guy just screams out “I’m a guy you can trust with your children.”

    Well something has to change. Things as they currently exist are rather inconsistent, meaning that if the state cannot tell women what to do with their bodies, then the state shouldn’t be able to tell men what to do with their bodies either, right? But it currently does, given that the state has the authority to command men to pay child support and jail them if they refuse. If the state can command a man to spend 18 years of his life using his body to support his child, then it stands to reason that the state should be able to command a woman to spend 9 months of her life using her body to support hers. Alternately, if we’re going to say that the state cannot tell a woman what to do with her body, providing her with a convenient get out of parenthood free card, then men should be provided that same get out of parenthood free card as well. I just don’t know how anyone can justify the state having the power to force a man to be a parent, but not having the power to do the same with a woman. Seems to violate the equal protection clause at the very least.

    I don’t know what’s dumber, falling for the hoax in the first place, or posting the results on the internet so the whole world can see just how stupid you are.

    Yeah she claimed she was off wind surfing or something equally ridiculous.

    These “stars” aren’t really upset that their nude photos are being made public, they’re upset that they’re not getting paid for them.
