    Heaven forbid a terrorist attack happens while our southern border remains wide open. I would love to blame that entirely on President Obama, but the problem pre-dates his administration. Still, it is his administration that has set up the huge “Vacancy” signs and rolled out the welcome mats.

    We are doomed. Every person should not be required to know how to rebuild a transmission (which is a wildly complicated piece of machinery) or even change plugs and points. That is, for cars that still have points. But changing a flat tire should be a skill only secondary to filling the car with gas. People don’t have to enjoy it. And if they have the means and want to pay someone to do it, good for them. But the basic knowledge is key.

    I have some liberal friends. Other than their misguided political/social views, they are rather intelligent people.
    But several routinely post memes from “Stop the World…” with a famous figure and a quote–most recently, STW has added a date to make the quote seem more authentic. Each time, the quote proves to be false.
    And my friends’ responses are on the lines of “Well, s/he says all sorts of other stupid/hateful things…”
    This is how damaging liberalism is. They think something Tina Fey said on Saturday Night Live was something Sarah Palin said, so then they see a meme that has Sarah Palin’s picture on it and a quote and they immediately believe that to be factual, and when it’s proven that the meme ‘s quote was false, they default to the Tina Fey quote.
    And these are the same people who get wildly upset if a false quote is attributed to President Obama (which happens) or when someone takes a quote out of context (which also happens).
    I have some liberal friends. I wish I could teach them how to do simple Internet research.

    I have to admit that I know very little about Islam, but I wonder what the reaction would have been if this little girl had wanted to use a Sura (which is sort of like a specific Bible phrase) from the Koran. The school would bend over backwards to allow it.

    So that people can say “These letters, etc., are important. Clinton’s–at this point, what do they matter?”

    I like it, Monk.
    Can we go one step further? Fill the windshield wiper fluid tank and turn the jets so that they face forward? Sure, it would take some practice to figure out range and take into account wind shear and such, but it’s a delivery system that would mean she would not need to get out of her car until step two.

    Be realistic, man. To spend $200 on concessions would involve having at least three beers and two hot dogs.

    We get into dangerous territory with Liz. Whereas we know that Clinton is a serial liar and only interested in more money and power, Liz truly believes in her version of socialism. Sure, she has some hypocrisy, too, but given power, she would quickly cede US power faster than Clinton could give it away for her own material gain.

    Notes to mom:
    1) Generally, although not always, men are bigger and stronger than women.
    2) Generally, although not always, men have more experience in fighting than women.
    3) Always–not generally–men cannot stand after being run over by a car. He may be able to bench press 400 pounds, he may be a pro boxer, but he can’t bench press or knock out a Volvo. If he is the man (sic) who raped your daughter, run him down.

    This is not only removing tanks and .50 caliber weapons.
    This is the government not providing shields and helmets.
    Police cannot effectively deal with a crowd if they have to be dodging bricks and bottles.
    It is almost as if the administration wants local law enforcement to be ineffective.

    This move also has the federal government no longer providing shields and helmets–to ask LEO’s to stand there while bricks are thrown at them shows the level of respect and support the President has for them.

    MSNBC, showing class as always.
    Imagine the outrage of a suspect had grabbed hold of a police cruiser and been dragged a few yards, and someone from Fox sent out a similar tweet.

    Common core math. It does not matter if you get the answer correct, as long as you understand the process.
    I have to start eating healthier–in 20 years or so someone from the common core generation might be performing bypass surgery on me. It won’t matter if the graft is attached to my aorta or a kidney, as long as the doctor understands the process.

    It is very likely a coincidence but a decade ago Homeland was warning about the possibility of post-9/11 attacks on trains. Derailers (which I had not known existed) had actually been stolen then. Surely, terrorists would not have waited this long if they had the means, but I don’t know tha other derailers have not gone missing since then.

    She’s been terminated. Awesome.
    Subway corporate still needs to make a statement in support of the police.

  • [7] May 10, 2015 at 6:52pm

    Miss Impala, as distasteful as I find this woman’s comments, normally I would agree with you. But she is wearing a Subway uniform and–while completely unofficial–her comments are now associated with the company. Free speech should be protected, but her choice of attire while making that free speech will cost Subway at least a whopping $60 a year (I grab a sub about once a month) until this is addressed.

    Subway’s corporate contact for customer service is: http://www.subway.com/ContactUs/frmCustomerService.aspx
    True, this is one employee and works for a franchise rather than directly for the corporation, but I suggest that people hit the company’s customer service email hard and explain that until this woman is terminated (and that information is made public) AND Subway corporate makes a statement in praise of law enforcement nobody will eat in any of their restaurants.
    My suggestion was a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. It does not have to be a huge discount (there is probably not a lot of profit margin on a $5 foot long), but some sort of a national gesture needs to be made.

    But I don’t see it happening. Remember, this is the company who on their national advertisements a couple of years ago included Ben Franklin eating subs with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln during February as a nod to President’s Day…

    Monk and Snow, I very much enjoy your comments and our interactions, but as a long-time martial arts student, a shorter time martial arts instructor, and a man who has been in more fights than common sense would dictate, I have decades of experience in one aspect of this discussion, and ask you to please spread this to others: a knee to the groin is a great strike, and has potentially serious damage–but unlike the movies, it solid groin shot does not immediately drop the attacker. He has perhaps five to twenty seconds before that pain reaches up and makes him want to drop on the floor and throw up, piss, and poop and not be able to do any of those things. But during those 5-20 seconds, the attacker is going to be very, very unhappy. Tell people not to stop with a nutcracker and expect an attacker to drop like a toilet seat. Either pound the attacker further or run like hell.
