    35 years ago, my father was stationed at Eglin AFB (very near Destin) and I visited him during the summers. Swimming near the pier, I didn’t quite come face-to-face with the giant hammerhead, but was close enough to scare my city-boy out of the water. Hammerheads’ mouths aren’t that big but the shape of their head otherwise still made the experience urine-dropping. Going from that point to fish from the pier, I was told that the hammerhead was about 11 feet long and just came three times a day to eat. I have to assume that this is Son of Hammerhead or something, and while it’s still “their turf,” sharks really don’t attack people often.

    He was elected President in 2008 and 2012?

    Either way, I think his life is over, but I also thought that Zimmerman would not survive the six month mark after the verdict, so perhaps I am wrong.
    But you’re not–if he is acquitted, or even convicted of manslaughter and not given a death sentence, it’s going to get really ugly.

    I’m no forensic expert, but if all of the bullets entered from the front, doesn’t that make him being initially shot in the back unlikely?
    We’re now hearing that he was heading back towards the policeman. Maybe he had his hands up to indicate that he was unarmed. Maybe he had his head down because he didn’t want to make eye contact and be construed as a threat. But unless he had his hands way up in the air, hands up around your shoulder height and chin tucked also looks a great deal like a fighting stance, and when you see someone that big coming at you–especially if you have a badge and have likely yelled the word “Freeze” or something on those lines–you have to take that as a viable threat.
    It looks great on TV to see a someone drop a person with one shot from 30 feet, but the reality is that even most people who train regularly with their firearm aren’t able to do that. Paper targets are one thing–human being coming at you is something else.
    My advice: if a policeman tells you to freeze, freeze. Make sure your hands are way, way up in the air.
    Further advice: if you have been shot by a policeman a couple of times, this is a really good time to freeze.

    It was only a matter of time before Ebola came to the US. I suspect the outbreak won’t come from Emory or the Atlanta area, though. We have an open border to the south and a whole slew of people who hate us. What’s to stop someone from infecting (probably not the right term) someone without their knowledge and letting them come cross? Or, worse yet, purposefully infecting a few dozen kids. “Juan, let me stick you with this needle and go up to the United States and I’ll give your family $10,000.” $10K is a lot of money south of the border; Juan would be doing a great service for his family. It takes a little less than a week for symptoms to show up, but during that time, Juan and the other 35 Juans are in tightly-packed areas and can be infecting others, people who are further through the processing, um, process. Sure, we might spot Typhoid Juans, but how many towns will be having the second wave of Ebola shipped to them. This could be ugly.

    Yeah, I remember the complaints that Keystone would increase global warming. A feel like dropping a couple of tactical nukes actually would do so. But hey, at least they could have proof of actual man-made global warming at that point, instead of the crap they’ve been peddling for decades now.

    Hundreds of millions.

    Soon to be relocated, at taxpayer expense, to a neighborhood near you. What could possibly go wrong?

    Actually, back in February, they did blame global warming for unemployment. And by that logic, global warming causes unemployment, and our failure to pass immigration reform is causing global warming, so we are in an endless loop.
    Those polar bears have no chance at getting jobs again.

    A few years ago a plumbing truck drove off of the road, through my bushes and an orange tree, and into my master bedroom.
    I actually had to hire a lawyer in order to get the company to pay for the repairs because a) my homeowner’s insurance company was terrible, and b) there was some contention as to whether or not my house, which had been here for 45 years at that point, was somehow to blame.
    The same thing will happen with this man–it’s his property. He should have a reasonable expectation of people not destroying it.

    I fear Senator Warren.
    Hilary Clinton runs on liberal policies because she believes she can garner votes and power with them; like her most recent ex-boss and like her husband, she will crap on her supporters once she no longer needs them.
    Elizabeth Warren runs on liberal policies because she believes in them. And some of these policies are not bad, in theory. But Warren truly believes that there is an infinite pot of money somewhere and that she can simply legislate away poverty. And, given the opportunity, she will try to do just that and then when the economy collapses (further) and social chaos erupts, she still will think a larger government can take care of it. After all, it’s in her Native American heritage.

    Damn that Republican war on women.

    The President is required by law to ask the Mexican government what the charges are and, if he (the Prez) thinks these are not valid charges or that they violate the rights of Tahmooressi, then he (the Prez) is required by law to demand his release.
    But the President does not care for the law.

    It remains in the DSM (although I have not seen the DSM-V). It is now Sexual Identity Disorder, with some subsets about same-sex partners).

    I grew up in Atlanta–age four to age 18. Left for college–only have been back a few times, and each time, I am quite happy to leave.

    FLDeb, the answer to your question is yes. There remain plenty of zombies who are unaware that the President routinely breaks the law, and many more zombies who are aware of it and somehow believe it is okay, that he has their best interests in mind when he does so.
    They vote, and they breed.

    Those who say that violence is not the answer are not paying attention to some of the questions.

    Or at the very least the 36,000 or so illegal immigrants that were just released from prison.

    And the countdown until somebody knocks over a Chili’s and robs their patrons begins–I give it three weeks.
