    If you’ve ever eaten an intact boar (not castrated) you’d remember and never want to do it again. When they are not castrated, (reaching this size is probably even worse) the hormones are coursing through them when they mature and they taste terrible. Like liberals, male hogs should be castrated before age two weeks.

    Slavery was completely the norm in every society going back to recorded human history. Moses and the bible aside, it would be inconceivable that Egypt would not have slavery. Recent discoveries have concluded that contrary to what was previously common thought (especially via Hollywood), slaves were not involved with the building of the pyramids. However, that certainly does not mean “there were no slaves in Egypt”.

    One word: “guillotine” However, rather than gravity, a hydraulically operated one that can be turned down to go reeeeeaaaallly slow.

    I wonder what food would have shown up in Michigan if they took Dearbornistan and the rest of the Detroit metro area. If you took this area out of the political mix, Michigan would be a very Red state instead of a blue state.

    The very first violation the driver made was making a right hand turn from the inside lane of a four lane road. He obviously was hitting the gas hard as he made this illegal turn. What would have initiated this other than seeing patrol car lights flash on? Then he blew through a stop sign a couple of block later, prior to the intersection where the accident occurred.

    Assuming that the photograph of Cade’s letter shows his actual handwriting and content,I say Kudos to him for great handwriting and grammatically correct prose!! In this day and age of “text spelling”, I find it admirable that someone of his age can actually write fluently! Homeschooled?

    I seem to remember caps being a lot louder when I was a kid. When he had that thing spinning, the machinery noise was louder than the caps!

    Most mental disorders have been going on since the beginning of time. It’s just been since 1974 that it’s no longer politically correct to treat this particular one.

    To those of you who think that members of an Army Band are somehow “fake soldiers”, feel free to read a little history on the Army Bands. U.S. Army bandsmen have been around since before the Revolution. They have been in the vanguard of attacks, rallying the front lines with drum and bugle. It was army musicians (buglers and drums) that were the primary communication lines in the field prior to the invention of electronic means. Those bugle calls you hear at football games were originally done to communicate everything from mess call to flag raising/lowering to “charge”! Army Bandsmen were often the targets of snipers in the Civil War in order to screw up communications. In modern times Army Band members (with the exception of the 4 Special Army Bands) go through exactly the same Basic Combat Training, Leadership/NCO training as every other soldier that dons the uniform. They have to meet exactly the same physical and combat arms requirements as any other soldier. The Army would not be the same without Army bandsmen performing at ceremonies such as Change of Command, Pass and Review, etc. Army Bands are the “face” of the U.S. Army to the general public through parades and concerts. To say that Army Bandsmen are “fake soldiers” because they aren’t on patrol over in the Sandbox is asinine. If this is the case, you better include all the other non-combat arms soldiers that are 80% of the Army. Yes, only 20% of the Army is combat arms. Apparently the rest are dorks!

    No, that means the private will be hauled up on an Article 15 for insubordination!

    So you are saying that any member of the Armed Forces who is not Special Forces is not worthy of the same respect and appreciation? With the exception of Special Forces specific school(s), Army Band members go through exactly the same training as every other soldier, have to meet exactly the same physical fitness requirement, have to qualify on the rifle range annually, go to the same leadership schools, etc., etc., I’ve been a member of an Army Band since 2005. We’ve had many combat infantry vets from Vietnam through Iraq/Afghanistan in the band including several Airborne. I am sure it is the same in the service bands of other branches.

    “I was living on the streets, and I tried to get a job, but of course my beautiful face didn’t allow me to do that”

    Yup, life is full of decisions…tats like this would be one of the bad ones!

    While I agree that 12 years is a bit old for corporal punishment, I do believe that a measured amount of physical pain meted out in a loving manner for a given transgression is an effective deterrent to future problems. My three boys (31, 29, 25) survived and are highly successful members of society (two engineers and a professional classical musician). As a Christian, I do not believe there is anything in the Bible that runs contrary to this belief.

    Hmm…wish I patronized Chipotle so I could stop. I’ve never been there.

    I used to do a variety of home remodeling projects as a part-time job when I was younger, plus a good deal of it on my own 100+ year old farmhouse. Anytime the jobs required opening up a wall cavity for one reason or another, I would always take a current issue of the Grand Rapids Press and put it in a plastic trash bag along with a personal note as to who I was and what I was doing. I would then tuck it inside the wall cavity before I drywalled or hung cabinets or whatever it was I was doing. There are probably a couple of dozen of these mini time capsules around the Grand Rapids area (plus two of them in my own house).

    Assuming proper training, a kid this age would be much more likely to get hurt in a Peewee Football game then on the range!

    I’m calling it a bunch of baloney. I’m very conservative and my first name came up low on the conservative side. My middle name and the first and middle names of my wife and all three of my adult children (all very conservative) came up on the liberal side.

    I think I saw this scene in the movie “World War Z”. Seriously, it looks like about any zombie movie I’ve ever seen.

    So why does my local grain elevator want $260 per ton for corn that I burn in my biomass furnace? At $3 bushel that’s about $110 per ton. I’m getting ripped off!
