Put all the gear in a plain duffle, change clothes and gear up for the photographs, reverse the process and go home. Why not think ahead a bit and save yourself and everyone else a lot of grief and give ammunition to the anti-gun nuts who’ll seize every opportunity to make all of us look bad.
2nd Amendment, I get it; common sense’ he didn’t get it.
Those of us who support the 2nd A need to look at the big picture and understand that the media is 99.9% against us and that we need to think strategically if we want to hold back the anti-gun wackos. Don’t give them any more news footage with which to bludgeon all of us. Example: holding an open carry event at a Starbucks is just poking the bear with no good outcome, the Libs will still hate us and LE will respond to their hysteria rightly or wrongly and we lose the stacked-against-us pubic debate once again.

And how many of those 11,000 deaths from gun violence are committed by people already breaking the existing gun laws? 90%, 98%?
The Left never has an answer for why do they think new guns laws, short of banning all gun ownership, will stop gun violence when the thousands of gun laws already on the books don’t. And even banning all gun ownership, as felons are currently banned from gun ownership, won’t change things if the risks of breaking the law isn’t a deterrent.
And the right never has an answer for why we're the only country in the developed world with such an obsession over guns, and the resulting death toll to prove it. Why do we need guns so badly, and so many of them? Why are we so much better than those other countries?

John Lewis is dumb as a post and sees things only through the filter of racism, yet he owns his US House seat in Atlanta and will until he keels over. Remember that’s also the area that sent even dumber Cynthia McKinney to the House several times before another black woman won the seat…a win that McKinney claimed was a result of racism. Go figure.
If a black politician blames everything on Whitey, slavery and rich people, he or she will get elected no matter how stupid they are. Remember the brainiac, also from GA (alas my home state), who was concerned about Taiwan capsizing?

A former navy pilot friend for mine who flew in Vietnam and I were chatting over lunch one day and when the waitress asked if he wanted coffee he said never drank it. I kidded him that I thought navy guys lived on coffee to which he replied:
“When you get shot off a carrier, have people trying to kill you for 2 hours and then have to come back and land, that was plenty of stimulation for me.”
The absolute best carrier ops video I’ve ever seen is a PBS special segment about pitching deck ops that begin late afternoon and end well after dark. 100,000 ton ship with 40 feet of vertical deck movement. About 20 minutes total in 2 parts. Very cool.
And if you trip on the way to libary I'll call you an ambliance. It should be here in a mimunum of 5 minutes...

I would chalk that up to an autofill typo in a hurried response, butt ewe never no.
What appalls me in the principal made “an exception for patriotism”. What a guy.

But now they’re not working and getting paid. And one has to ask what is expiration date on using the term “we” to refer to events that happened to others 150 years ago “’cause we wudn’t there”.
And I heard one welfare queen back when Mister Billy signed the Welfare Reform Act say that making them work to get “their” free money was just like slavery all over.
As the pilot’s kid said in “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome” :
“Dad, dad, we’re dead meat, we’re dead meat.” Bingo.

There are a couple of island communities along the Maine coast that have been there for 150 years and there are still only a handful of different family names, so the South has no monopoly on wide but shallow gene pools. But to assume a southern accent denotes stupidity is prejudice based mostly on media stereotypes and a mistake many crafty southerners will use to their advantage.

Re: the Hoodie comment, I assume you’re referring to Geraldo’s diatribe after the Trayvon Martin incident. The point was that while wearing a hoodie isn’t evidence of anything the wearer should understand that he’s making a choice to immerse himself in guilt by association, whether factual or not. Same would be true for a suburban yuppie to shave his head and get Nazi tattoos and then be surprised that everyone who saw him, especially in law enforcement, would make negative assumptions based on his appearance.
Since the hoodie is the de facto garment of choice for the black thug class, let the wearer beware lest he be treated as something he isn’t. Note virtually all the gleeful participants shown on the in-store videos of looting, at least in Ferguson, are wearing hoodies as though it’s the uniform of the day.
Doesn’t have to be right (in the larger sense) or fair to be true, but if you want to look tough and try the gangsta vibe, be careful what you wish for.

She’s definitely got the “Mussolini”, chin up in defiance pose, figured out; Obama’s PR flacks must have been working with her already.

Not so fast MK2, if preying on black folks to the level of criminal activity is a disqualifier then every black politician in the country and all the likes of Rev’s Al and Jesse would also be disqualified since none of them would get anywhere if they didn’t count on the ignorance and dependency of poor black people on whom they can run their scams to keep themselves in custom made suits and wearing Rolex’s
The only difference is when they show up at the house to take everything you own they do in a limo vs kicking in the back door…or their minions with govt ID’s do it for them.
At least the burglar has some “real world experience” unlike the mayor of Baltimore who never even looked for a job outside of politics from the minute she graduated from law school. Yet another “theory of governance” devotee who thinks taking college Poli-Sci classes taught by uber-Libs is all the experience needed to run (and ruin) other people’s lives.

How about the issue being retiring with pension and benefits whereas if it had been private sector he would have been sued, EEOC suit to the company and civil personal suit, and fired.
An HR fact that execs in real world know: sexual harassment opens them to personal liability so “Mr can’t keep his hands to himself” or “only promotes good looking women”, can explain to his wife and family why he lost his job and why they’re losing their home.

Do they make industrial strength Hoverounds? I would have guess they maxed out at 500 lbs load rating. He may need to move up to an LCAC if his future plans include hovering.

I think you mean segregation vs racism. Black folks hanging voluntarily primarily with other black folks is self-segregation. Ditto for white folks except to us the labe “racist” is applied.
Are Americans of Chinese descent more comfortable in predominantly Chinese neighborhoods because they’re racists? Hispanics? Koreans? Nope, just white people.
