ewoks, if it had been a white kid, do you think it would even have happened?

Of course, then there’s the cost of your home phone.
I know your home phone plus Tracfone doesn’t equal the cost of my cell phone, but I do have about the cheapest plan available and no home phone to worry about.
Plus I can get my email and stay in contact with employees and business from almost anywhere, so by the time my company reimburses a portion of my cell phone bill, I actually may be as inexpensive as your home phone plus Tracphone.
And all of that with the lowest data plan my carrier has available – which they doubled for free a few months ago — and I hardly ever come close to using even half of my available data.
Bundled cable, TV and Internet... about $113 and change per month and they treat me VERY well.
I had a cell phone that a company reimbursed my for and actually came out ahead. That was over 6 years ago. Just normal cell phones and plans. I probably would have to get a newer phone with an unlimited plan if I was working... but I gave up on working and just retired.
One year Trac phone pre paid card $100.00. One year Ooma premier $120 annually plus taxes at $3.75 a month with unlimited nationwide calling, call blocking on 280 numbers and whole area codes, caller id, call waiting, call forwarding to any number (including my cell phone), voice mail, conference calling, etc. Call quality is almost as good as my Verizon land line, and I’m no longer paying $60.00 a month for less perks when I was with Verizon. I cringe when I hear some people are paying $80 – $100 a month with their cell phone bill.
Purchase Skype phone service @ $61.00 a year or break it down to incoming phone number and service for $30.00 or outgoing North America @ $31.00 (without phone number) on any computing or wireless device If you want to use conventional phones add an adapter to a compliant phone set for the typical phone arrangement. Combine this with prepaid wireless service and save money in communications.

Let’s see: the White House says that it is not a sign of disunity.
It’s a sure bet, then, that there is disunity.

doesanybody, sorry, but I don’t see anything positive about being snarky and narcissistic.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14
God does attach a condition for His people – those who are true Christians or Jews
I also enjoyed the video of the feat being “done with success” — as the guy lying down turns his shielded head AWAY from the block is gets hit upside the head instead.

Teacher decided to breathe at exactly the wrong time, tilting the block away from the ax-wielder.
Of course, bozo with the ax wasn’t lined up to hit the block in the middle to begin with.

At least, according to the vet it’s all false claims.
There needs to be some serious inquiry and investigation to determine which of the two is being truthful. Once it is verified as to which of the two is making false accusations against the other, the penalties need to be severe.
Just another good reason for a video surveillance system. If that vet could've proven his neighbor's story was false, in even ONE INSTANCE, it puts the burden of proof on the neighbor that whatever occurred was the the absolute truth. Otherwise, he lied once and the rest of his statements are suspect. Just sayin'.

While I agree with your sentiment, Karama, the one statement that stood out to me in both the article itself and in your comment is the “he is disabled, so he couldn’t hurt his neighbor if he wanted to.”
With a gun, he could.
Having said that, I agree that there is not enough evidence in this “he said, neighbor said” to necessarily take the guns, BUT if the judge knew that there were guns present and didn’t immediately act to have them removed, and then the guy went “postal” and shot the neighbor, what would the reaction be?
It’s entirely possible that the judge was trying to be prudent in protecting the safety of the neighbor while he gives himself and the system time to verify.
“Trust, but verify” comes to mind here. Can the judge really take a chance that the vet and not the landscaper is the one telling the truth?
That’s nice that the judge was concerned, we can’t take away some ones rights till they are proven guilty. Any guilt has not been established, there for they are harassing an innocent man and just committed theft by taking his property. The veteran may have a good law suit in the making.
If the system took a few days it might not be so bad. This judge is just going to let the 1 year clock run out and never care.
I do believe I've been threatened by every cop who confiscated the guns. They should not be allowed to carry weapons on patrol or at home for a year.
Funny how they never lose their guns... or bodyguards.
it is called evidence, witness's and and investigation before judgement....You know, like in a system of Justice...

Unfortunately, kids all over our country are taught on a daily basis that they are nothing more than animals who evolved from animals.
We should not be surprised that they act like animals.
And that also begs the question of where our moral values came from. Atheists love to tell us how we don’t need God to know proper value morals, yet the further our society flees from God, the fewer moral values we have.
