OK Flynn city government. Follow me on this…If you are ticketing him because “thee used to be a sidewalk there” are you having police write tickets for, oh…say, running stop signs that USED to be there but are no longer?
Long live real Amish roll butter, lard and bacon grease!

Gods know how many flocks have been wiped out by dogs around here. If you take the owner to court you MIGHT get $5 for each bird. You can not raise a producing layer from a chick for $5. You do what you have to do to protect your stock. If asked…Dog? What dog? You don’t post it on facebook!

Never been to the FEMA site (ready.gov) or any of the State equivalents? You know the ones… They tell people to make a plan, build a kit, be prepared… You know, be a prepper.
Stores, restocked on a daily basis, were stripped by a SNOW STORM recently weren’t they? FEMA says prep for at least 3 days for 2. LA has told residents prep for 2 weeks. I imagine that includes “Beck approved food” that can be stored for years…
FEMA…Right Wing extremism at its best!

33% – 42% of students entering college in 2007-08 had taken at least one remedial course, according to the U.S. Department of Education. So much of first year college is just getting students up to where they should have been in high school.
Then count in all the crap courses you are required to take to get a degree… The current administration looks down their elite noses at those that work for a living. Do you call a Harvard grad to snake your sink? Fix your flat? Build your shed? Well, you do if they are smarter now than when they graduated…

Wow! Does that mean Bill Gates isn’t qualified to invent what he did and build it into Microsoft?
If I remember correctly Sir Richard Branson didn’t complete college did he? And to top it off he is dyslexic.
Wait…Isn’t there some guy by the name of Zuckerberg? Larry Ellison of Oracle? Eike Batista? Michael Dell? H Ty Warner?
You’re making the assumption that I actually believe a college degree is necessary for the job of POTUS. I actually do not believe that. My point is The Blaze is probably in a bad position to make that argument since they appear to hire writers who have at least one college degree.
That said the people you listed are all self-made entrepreneurs who most likely would make terrible presidents since they would find the job utterly frustrating due to the inability to get anything meaningful accomplished. This is not how these individuals are used to operating.
My guess is that if any of these people actually became POTUS you would see 10 times more executive orders issued than during FDR’s tenure.
No they are all Liberals without the degree.

How is using past reports even close to the 1984 “thought police”?
Most residential burglaries happen during the day between 9am and 4pm. Why this time? People are at work or school. Is that thought police or just using already filed reports to determine that? Most non-residential burglaries happen at night. Why? People aren’t there. Is that using thought police?
The question then becomes utilization of resources. Do you put the burglary prevention programs in the business areas Mon – Fri, 7am to 6pm or in the residential areas?
No one is being accused of being guilty before the fact. AISight sounds a little hinky to me but I only know what I read here about it. Still it is not an guilty until proven innocent type of thing. Just a surveillance gone wild.
Using past reports to predict future events isn't "thought police".
Using past reports to predict future events and then putting up surveillance equipment to spy on innocent people in that area to see if they do something unusual... that is "thought police".
The first type, using past data to indicate future potential, is the first step. The article is showing you a progression towards something. It's not an equivalence.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
I added to my original post which was identical to yours with these questions it answers some of them.

So all a baker, refusing a gay wedding cake, would have to do is bake the cake, offer decorations and the “extra frosting and tools so he could write whatever he wanted on the cake” and the State would have no case against them? Forget the fact you are buying a professionally made cake and might end up with the equivalent of a 6 y/o’s writing on it, in effect, ‘ruining’ it… Interesting…
Except for the fact that most wedding cakes do not have messages written on them. I've never been to a wedding where there was something written on the cake... most of them have floral or themed designs. But I'm sure there are people who do have things written on their wedding cakes.
@tmarends - it does not have to be words to be a message. Doesn't even have to be an obvious "non-written" message, like a cross or a rainbow.
The decorations on a wedding cake are distinctive - they say "WEDDING" without needing a single word.

As someone with multiple problems that uses a cane I have a handicapped plate. I use it on an ‘as needed’ basis. There are days I need the cane but don’t take it, opting instead to limp into the store to get a cart to lean on. Does that mean, to you, that I don’t have a “REAL need” because YOU don’t see the problem? What about those with other hidden handicaps, like heart disease? YOU don’t see it so it is not “REAL”?
I have a stock answer for those that make the comment, “You don’t look handicapped”… My response? “You don’t look stupid. I guess we were both wrong”.
I’m not saying that abuses don’t take place but don’t assume, using looks only, that an apparently ‘normal’ person is…
@country - You are spot on! And I love your "stock answer"!!!! Have a blessed day :)

What STATE law was being cited as reason to issue a search warrant, requiring Probable Cause, for a LEGAL substance?
If no STATE law was used where does the Sheriff get the legal authority to enforce a FEDERAL law? Think immigration laws and DOJ. And, again, it is apparently a LEGAL substance under Federal law by what the article says.
Has the Sheriff opened, and READ, a PDR? Select ANY drug there and go to the adverse affects section;
Aspirin side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to aspirin: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using this medicine and call your doctor at once if you have:
• ringing in your ears, confusion, hallucinations, rapid breathing, seizure (convulsions);
• severe nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain;
• bloody or tarry stools, coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
• fever lasting longer than 3 days; or
• swelling, or pain lasting longer than 10 days.
Common aspirin side effects may include:
• upset stomach, heartburn;
• drowsiness; or
• mild headache.

What law was he “violating” when he was stopped from entering his own house? Contempt of cop perhaps?
Why did the cop hit him in the face with the equivalent of brass knuckles (handcuffs)?
Jury trial… Jury nullification…

Under the Incorporation Doctrine the 2nd would be binding on the States. The 2nd is the only one of the bill of rights that has not been incorporated. So either the others were illegally incorporated and applied to the states or the 2nd has been illegally NOT incorporated. Which is it?
The second amendment is a common law right. It is not a 14th Amendment privilege.
Because of the “due process” clause of the 14th Amendment, 14th Amendment citizens are allowed to use the common law criminal procedures (4th, 5th, 6th and 8th Amendment) for their protection. The “due process” clause also allows the 14th Amendment citizens to use the 7th Amendment for civil actions.
Free and independent people are governed by our common law. Whereas, 14th Amendment citizens are governed by legislative acts created by man.
Gun control laws are legislative acts created by man and can only pertain to their rightful subjects.
Gun control laws do not pertain to free and independent people.
It has been illegally incorporated! Otherwise why even bother writing and ratifying 50 state constitutions?

How soon before the FFRF sends the town and PD a letter stating their intent to sue?

J-Mo; How can something that you do not believe in offend you so? If I chose to believe in Hecate that is my choice, something the Left has as their deity.
On the other hand if I see a cross, an image of Shiva, Crow, Menorah, crescent and star, or other symbols like the sign in this article, I do not get offended and try and shut them down. I shrug and go on.
The Founders for the most part were very religious people and their one concern was that any attempt to ESTABLISH a State religion be stopped. It was not that government be prohibited from acknowledging religion. Being very educated they would fight the current attempts to rewrite history to exclude religion because you need to study true history or you will repeat it. Dictatorships are based in part on destroying religion.
So if my belief that Quetzalcoatl exists offends you…walk away…
Actually, it does appear that Christians are offended by that letter "A" - hence the basis of the article.
All atheists are doing is seeing when Christians are using public parks to advertise their religoius views and atheists use that time to advertise their views on religion. When Christians are not using the parks in that manner, generally Atheists return that favor. Fair is Fair ..

Firearms homicides; 2013 – 8,454 down from 8,897 in 2012, down from 9,199 in 2009.
Now, take into account 350+ MILLION firearms in civilian hands. Works out to ONE firearm homicide for every 41,400 guns. ONE gun homicide for every 37,378 people. A little over 1/2 of homicides are committed by 12% of the population (roughly 37 MILLION). The rest of the number you cited are a few accidently deaths and suicides.
