    The problem is that Nobody makes up fake polls, pays limp-wristd politicians to make it difficult to get, use and even practice using a firearm(in New Jersey)and Mr Nobody does not think there is a legitimate right of self defense. Nobody goes around and posts a list of gun violence victims who include rapist, murderers, terrorist, mentally ill people, illegal aliens and drug dealers shot in self defense by both the armed citizen and the police. It is not hard to hear on the news or in casual conversations that some people wish that there were no guns or that Nobody could get a gun except the police. Nobody wants the average citizen to face an armed thug with a weapon that is inferior to ones commonly available to criminals by theft or deception by limiting capacity, speed, caliber and frequency of purchase. Why does Nobody hate the productive and lawful citizen?

    It wouldn’t bother me if he had a couple of beers before it happened, but I don’t suggest doing that in my state.

    The tunnels were probably collapsed to prevent any more escapes.

    I would make a rule that no judge, psychiatrist or prisoner’s relative could have input to the release a prisoner. Only the guards would decide. Test have shown them to have the best record of predicting a second or third trip back to jail.

    I dread returning to the days when any government supported foreign import was considered “Dumping”. If the French could make trains cheaper than the competition, Atlanta should have thought of that as a being good for taxpayers.(not French taxpayers) The only way the French could do that was to provide financing at a lower level. So to keep their people working they did that to beat out the American and one other foreign competitor, the Canadians I think. Cement used to be cheaper from Spain. Rebar used to be cheaper from over seas. I don’t think we can reverse the long term effects of these trade agreements. Our steel industry does not make large rolled steel sections like they used to. Even the government has modified the Buy America Act to give exceptions to the rule. for government construction projects. It is probably cheaper to get Bauxite for aluminum production from China or Australia than in the US. I don’t think we are smart enough to anticipate all of the consequences of what is proposed. We are not use to operating in a world where everything costs more all of the time even after considering inflation.

    Several years ago, as a favor to my county commissioner, I researched the budgets of several similar sized counties to find out what the average cost of solid waste was in my state and the governments that were just putting waste in the land fill were enjoying lower per capita taxes on that line item. The whole controversy got started over an accusation of non-competitive transactions in the recycling of cardboard. Hands down, across the board, recycling cost more and makes your taxes higher. It does not matter what it is, tires, construction material, household garbage, plastics newspapers or cardboard. People can help by separating the materials but transportation costs are more than buying cheap land and closing costs of the land fill. My county transports ash and garbage 75 miles one-way to a land fill and still spends money on recycling.

    Why didn’t Hillary bring in all of the diplomatic blowback letters from the Libyans to the her eleven-hour testimony that were protesting that a few good men tried to rescue people in the annex. This whole lack of action is predicated on the assumption that the Libyans would be offended or had to approve of it first. I hope we don’t have to get permission from the UN before protecting the homeland..

    I don’t think it matters because her crowd will do whatever is required to keep their world view in good repair no matter what it cost and no matter who has to die. There was an election going on and it mattered how won that election.

    She broke a moral law that says you owe a duty to those you permitted to be in harms way.

    They did not dispatch forces that were close enough, less than a mile away.

    Order the meds from Antartica and tell them the shipment froze up on the way up to the states…five times already. If there is a rule of against incompetency, the government surely would not apply it to themselves.

    To be consistent, would’t the pharmacist also have to sell cigarettes since they are legal too? It is all about love. Some people love to smoke.

    This is what happens when you bunker up, don’t vote or vote for people who don’t have a chance of winning: The Heathens take over. It is too bad the SCOTUS does not defend the Second Amendment with the same vigor that it defends the right to kill a baby.

    I think anything that you would do in an owned home, you should be able to do in a rented home. If you painted your house rainbow colors, you might get the local zoning people upset, but surely a private property owner, a land lord would not have as much clout as a government agency. Rental agreements are notoriously full of illegal provisions about the use of the property and renters rights. I lived in a unit that had rules about signs in the window(do not disturb, bad dog) and aluminum foil on the windows.

    A fetus is a human being on organic life support. If you take it off its life support, a human dies.

    I guess this assumes that reform is impossible. The Left likes to criticize long sentences and often complains that the system has given up on reform in favor of punishment. But now they seem to be switching sides with the concept that reform is not possible on some crime. It looks like the law was not clear with respect to the circumstances surrounding the assault, so they passed it to the court to maximize the effect. This happens in my state all of the time. The legislature is notorious for weasel-words and vague definitions that have to be straightened out in the courts years later. It is almost like a second and third chance to pass the law you never could have passed in the legislature.

    One of the fundamentals of modern deconstructionism is the belief that every big story has at it’s core an evil intent. Henry Ford might have done a great thing by making the motor car affordable but he had evil in his heart and a bad reason for doing good so many people. Mother Teressa might have been OK but the Catholic Church had some kind of evil intent sending her there. No matter who you are or what you did, you or the institution you belong to, are guilty of evil intent. If everyone becomes a deconstructionist, eventually there is a hostile academic and work atmosphere that could go beyond the micro level. I have no idea why relativism did not kill deconstructionism nor do I know why deconstructionism gets a pass from its own principals. and therefore is invulnerable to its own analysis. I do know that the word “University” means one truth and that a whole class of evil, that which comes from good intentions, is cloaked and protected by deconstructionism. On the bright side, the University is actually saying something is wrong all the time and in every circumstances. I sounds a little like they are claiming to know an absolute truth!

    How much extra does this “service” cost the average student?… In dollars, not dignity.

    They will never be happy. After taking the extra inch, they are working on the second mile.

    If he had AIDS, I would buy the gay angle. But he is still primarily a Muslim doing Jihad.
