    I really get so tired of the “we’re going to be doing something” announcements. We’ve been told to await something big, something amazing, something that will tear the fabric of the country apart… sometimes it’s going to be announced the next day and it doesn’t happen. Other times it’s coming an a few weeks and that’s the last you hear of it. There is so much over hype going on it has become meaningless!

    That’s asinine! I saw a video of a dog biting a mailman once. I suppose I can’t comment on what is clear to see in that video either because I am neither a dog or a mailman? Watch the video! It doesn’t take a race car driver to see, and hear what is happening. The guy never steps in FRONT of Stewart. It is clear that he got close, but if Stewart wouldn’t have spun his wheels he never would have hit the guy. If you can’t hear the motor rev, and the wheels spin, as he passes the guy- and you can’t see that he is NEXT to the car until the car moves TOWARD HIM, then we can’t have a conversation.

    RaydocX- Nobody is saying he TRIED to run him over. But Stewart has acted without thinking many times. He’s thrown his helmet at other drivers, he’s started brawls on pit road, he’s run at moving cars just like this guy did to him, he’s wrecked other drivers at nearly 200 MPH- he’s a hot head! (Not the only one in racing, to be sure) He didn’t try to HIT him, but he intentionally tried to throw dirt in his face and it ended up in a death. The video is absolutely clear about that.

    Funny how nobody else who passed him decided on that moment to “clean their tires”, and Stewart just happens to wait until the exact moment he was next to the guy to “clean his tires”… yup, totally unintentional.

    People here are either big Stewart fans, or they don’t want to admit that a bone headed move, which Stewart had made MANY in his career, cost someone his life.

    txannie- Threw it in neutral? The engine revs and the wheels spin just as Stewart gets next to him! Watch the video! Gunning the engine or popping the clutch does that, not throwing it in neutral.

    macpappy- An accurate version of your illustration while be a driver who gets dangerously close, but not in front of the train- but then the engineer tries to teach the driver a lesson by doing something that causes the train to derail and take out the driver.

    Yougottabekidding- In racing “traffic” means boxed in by other cars or otherwise impeded by them. They were under caution, which means they had slowed down and were passing in a single file line. The cars around Stewart had nothing to do with how he reacted. I am NOT saying it’s smart to approach a moving car, but let’s be realistic. It happens all the time in racing when a driver wants to yell at another as he passes after a wreck. There’s a difference between one guy standing NEAR a moving car, and that moving car suddenly lurching TOWARD him. Stewart spun his wheels when he was next to the guy, and killed him. Not murder, but negligence.

    Sarge- So the fact that I am not a driver means I can’t speak of what my eyes can clearly see in the video?… On the other hand, the fact that YOU are not a driver means YOU CAN? Who made that rule?

  • [-7] August 10, 2014 at 9:28am

    Nobody said he hit him on purpose. But he clearly DID gun his engine as he passed. The kid was NEXT to him, not in front of him. He was gunning it to make a statement, not to hit him. But a dirt track veteran like Stuart should have known better. He is negligent.

  • [-4] August 10, 2014 at 9:26am

    I read it. It was incorrect.

  • [-6] August 10, 2014 at 9:26am

    If you know Stuart, you wouldn’t say that is ridiculas. His temper is LEGENDARY! No, I am not saying he meant to hit the guy.But he saw him approaching the car and he decided to put a scare into him as he passed. So he guns the engine, causing the car to slide into him. It was an accident, but an accident caused by Stuart.

  • [-5] August 10, 2014 at 9:23am

    The guy was NEXT to Stuart, not in front of him. If he was avoiding him all he had to do was pass by. You honestly think that Stuart thought the guy was going to run in front of him, so he suddenly decided to do a tail whip to avoid him? Give me break…

  • August 10, 2014 at 9:21am

    Absolutely. That should be a rule.

  • [-3] August 10, 2014 at 9:20am

    Funny you say I haven’t a clue, then go on state several incorrect things… He was NOT in traffic, they were under caution. They cars were circling the track lined up at slow speed. He did NOT gun his engine to get past so he wouldn’t hit him. That is insane! THe driver approached the SIDE of his car, not the FRONT! Stuart has raced on dirt his whole life. He knows what happens when you gun the engine. He also knows about getting out of his car and walking up to a passing racer- he’s done it more than once himself. It is not out of the ordinary. I am not saying the guy should have gotten out of his car, I am saying he wouldn’t have been hit if Stuart hadn’t gunned the engine. All you have to do is watch the video to see everything I just said is true.

    The key to the whole thing is Stuart gunning the engine as he passes. The guy did not get in Stuart’s path, Stuart intentionally spun his tires and kicked toward the guy at the critical moment. Stuart is a long time dirt track racer. He knows what happens when you gun your engine at a slow speed like that. It was a dumb move, even if the racer should have stayed in his car. Stuart himself has approached a moving car under caution like that. It happens several times a year with no ill effects because the driver doesn’t do something like Stuart did as he passed!

    1. It was not too dark to see him. I can see him on a cheap camcorder. Stuart could see him. 2. They were under caution, the cars were slowed down, not racing by. 3. Stuart intentionally guns the engine as he passes, which caused the car to kick sideways as he passed. 4. In racing, walking up to a passing car under caution happens many times a year. Stuart has done it several times himself. It never results in injury because the driver doesn’t do something like Stuart does.

    Stuart is legendary for his temper. He probably didn’t mean to hit him, but he clearly meant to put a scare into him. You may think the driver was dumb for getting close, but like I said, it happens all the time with no injuries. Stuart was clearly negligent.

    WCFF- The war was about “states rights” to have slaves! Yes, the south saw it as simply their right to their property but the property in question was not cotton, or sweet tea! The government was trying to stop the spread of slavery to the territories so that when those territories applied for statehood, they would be free states. The south saw this as the government putting its nose where it didn’t belong, and an attempt build a confederation of states against them and their slave based economy. So, while most Southerners would have said they were fighting for State’s rights, the only real right that was being restricted was the right to own and sell slaves. Slavery was at its heart of it from Dead Scott to the Missouri Compromise to John Brown and finally the War.

    Moderaterepub- You are intentionally mixing one set of laws with another. It’s like saying Americans are bound by both the Magna Carta AND the Constitution. The former was for a different time and people, the latter replaced it. So it is with the law given to Moses in the OT. It was designed for a specific time and situation. When that time past, God replaced it with a new set of laws. So constantly pointing to the old is meaningless. But I think you know that…
