    ANY spectator sport is boring. American football, baseball, basketball, and soccer. I like to ride bicycles, but watching the Tour de France is torture. If you are playing it, it is a sport. If you are sitting on your arse watching it, you are just a fat tub of lard, living vicariously through someone else.

    SAPD has very few cowboy types, despite being in South Texas. There was some paraphnalia found, but he wasn’t a dealer or distributer, according to other local sources. Jury did right.

    Really liked IKEA’s statement, saying the policy didn’t apply to LEOS and the “loss prevention officer” was wrong thinking it did, Basically, IKEA is either (1) lying, or (2) admitting they hire extremely stupid people.
    Any business that says such a thing is a short termer. Would you give your money to people like that?

    As noted Asian Tiger Mosquitos have been here in Texas for thirty years. Big deal, no major issues from them. Bring back DDT and other chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides? Why? Banning them DID cause problems at the time (Rachel Carson, the left’s and greenies heroine) is directly responsible for millions of deaths throughout the world, due to insect vectored disease and starvation from insect cased crop failures. But today? There are far better pesticides available. The problem with the ban was they were just “dumped”, with no viable replacements in the research pipeline.

    Off body carry has its problems. My wife carries in a pocket rig I designed and made for her. Others seem to like it, I’ve sold several.

    This is a news story? Some sissy whimp is afraid of insects? Pretty pathetic.

    With a background in entomology, and over thirty years dealing with pest management, all I can say is “what a bunch of wusses”. Enormous swarm? Give me a break! Not a time of year when much honeybee swarming takes place, but it happens. As long as the queen is with them they will be pretty docile, aggressive behavior takes place when the workers are defending the colony. The southern yellow jacket (and northern as well) do not display that type of behavior. They will also be MUCH more aggressive/protective of their nesting site than any honeybee species, including Africanized bees. despite the warnings issued for the last 30 years about how Africanized honeybees are going to take over North America, it ain’t gonna happen. The genetics just aren’t there, way too many European honeybees. If you don’t think the European HBs don’t get aggressive, you haven’t seen what happens when enough attack/defense pheromone is released. As for the “mysterious” cause of the decline in numbers, it isn’t a mystery, just mainstream media doesn’t cover it much, and people don’t pay attention when it is mentioned. CCD (colony collapse disorder) seems to be caused by a parasitic mite that invades the breathing spiracles along the insect’s abdomen. Most beekeepers I know will not collect wild colonies because of the risk of introducing the mites into their existing population.

    Erica…you might want to actually KNOW something about the subject you are covering…he doesn’t have guns “legally registered” to him. Might be different if you are from NY and some of the other fascist states, but in the free states, there is no such thing.

    Dan Joseph is no more knowledgeable than those students. He said Benghazi is in “the middle east”. IT IS IN NORTH AFRICA!. The pot is calling the kettle black…

    Yep, I remember that as well. Don’t forget Pre-K for Mojados/Mojadas, either. Mommy was bigtime La Raza Unida, too.

    I’d love to see him in a cabinet position! He won’t accomplish anything , and it gets his butt out of San Antonio and Texas. He and his brother are both socialists at best. Good thing there are more and more conservative Latinos/Hispanics throwing off their Grandparent’s and Parent’s Democratic chains.

  • May 17, 2014 at 9:18am

    Correct. As an entomologist, I agree completely.

    Rotate the band on his muffs back 90 degrees, and his hat would stay on. Always start beginners (easy to see, by his body language that he is) with a firearm with light to moderate recoil. Look at the flinch he has when he tries to fire the second round.

    Bill Nye is a pseudo science guy. Always has been, and always will. he knows about as much about the scientific method as my German Shepard. If you want some real fun, watch him debate Dr. Bastardi (PHD, Meteorology) about “man caused climate change”. Dr. Joe eats him alive. Nye’s an ignorant dork.

    I agree 100% with a “no hit” policy. Spanking, however, is NOT hitting, no matter what some educated-beyond-their-intelligence-level child psychologist tries to tell you.

    Todos cagada. About as “Mexican” as Vancouver or Tokyo.

    During the time period, there were several differences between “:fowling pieces” (shotguns) and muskets for military use. Both were smoothbore, but that’s where the similarities end. Kind of like saying your pickup truck is the same as a NASCAR racer because they both have four wheels.

  • April 26, 2014 at 7:41pm

    Learn your history, Jason boy. Nock’s volley gun was multi barreled a smoothbore MUSKET, not a shotgun. It also wasn’t terribly successful.

    Just a repeat of the late Jeff Cooper’s’ color code…White, yellow, orange, and red. White is unaware and unprepared, perfect description of people buried in their phones, or wearing ear buds. Spend your time in yellow, relaxed alertness.

    The jury will convict him. Based on what I’ve seen I would vote guilty! I’ve had a CHL since1994, never go out without a weapon, or have one less than 10 feet away from me in my house. If you are going to use deadly force, you have a legal AND moral obligation to do it right. The finishing shots were murder, pure and simple.
    My state does shield me from lawsuits, if the deadly force was justified BTW.
