    Not sure where you live, buy my experience has been the exact opposite. I’ve lived in KY, AL, TN and FL, and for the most part, the “rednecks” I know are exactly as Larry described. Are there some who are indeed racist? Sure. But for the most part, it seems the left likes to group everyone who lives in rural America as their definition of “redneck”. I’ve also lived in Cincinnati and Cleveland, and run into far more racism in those cities. Odd how that works.

    Funny thing-we already have a federal law banning automatic weapons. We also have a federal law banning heroin and cocaine (yet I’m sure Whoopi knows dozens of people who readily have both available). We also have a federal law banning illegal immigration. These federal laws have been soooo successful-and yet they feel another one on guns will magically solve all our problems. Delusional-just like every other lib I’ve ever met.

    Some good points there, but we seem to do a poor job these days of teaching our kids appropriate behavior? This kid happens to be from Somalia (I really don’t care), but ANY kid in that environment needs to learn appropriate responses. How many stories do we see ( or hear from our kids) of students treating teachers like garbage, and fighting in the classroom, with each other AND the teacher. I’ll be the first to admit that the requirements for being a teacher are suspect (and ingrained in our system through the union), but they are supposed to be the authority figure in the classroom, and should be treated as such. Quite frankly, I’m all for a teacher who is assaulted to respond with beating the crap out of the offender, but that’s just me.

    While this story is tragic, it does reinforce one basic element of human beings, as well as human nature-people do stupid things. Some are stupid on paramount levels. When that happens-as it obviously did here-the current narrative is to blame it on something, or someone else. People need to take ownership of their own stupid actions.On a planet with a few billion people, millions make various degrees of stupid decisions on a daily basis-and pay the price for them. Obviously she did as well.

    There is a lynchmob mentality among people, a bloodthirsty, barbaric trait that we can’t seem to eradicate, even with all our political correctness and blind devotion to “peace”. The sooner we can admit that-and address how to deal with it-the better off we’ll be.

    It is a threat. Let’s face it-historically, Muslims as a rule do not “assimilate”. They do not “blend”, nor do they accept a role as simply a part of a society. In this case, they are using the laws and politically correct sensitivities of the US against us, and it’s working. I’m not anti-Muslim, but the simple fact is, at this particular point in time, they pose the biggest threat to any western nation. I recall commercials for stockbrokers that were required to use the language, “past performance is not indicative of future results.”, but in this case, past-as well as present-performance of the Muslim world is ENTIRELY indicative of future results. A bit of prevention and caution is nothing if not common sense.

    They would probably enjoy it.

    Or Rednecks? Any sideways glance at my pickup should be grounds for a lawsuit.

    Could not agree more.

    The heck with ISIS-how ’bout we nuke Oregon?

  • [9] December 28, 2015 at 12:43pm

    Of course it is. I like the reference to “hate speech” from the “candidate”. To be a proponent of securing our own borders, and securing the safety of those here-including Muslims-is now hate speech? Ridiculous.

    Anyone else notice a trend here? We don’t read about Quenton Tarantino, or any other Hollywood lib with more money than god doing anything for anyone. Ever.It’s always the guys making $40K a year banding together and helping people-never those who reaped their fortunes in many cases from these very people. Oh, they’re quick to criticize everyone else-especially cops-but they’re inevitably the last-with a few exceptions-to actually DO anything for anyone. I guess the cream truly does rise to the top.

    Very simple-the neighbors need to be ready, and the next time these cowardly punks fire a shot, it’ll be their last.

    All the younger voters must have been Ivy League students. Sounds about right.

    11 felony arrests-and 4 convictions-and he wasn’t the guy she knew? Really? I always thought 3 felonies made you a habitual criminal?

    Classy move. Well done.

  • [5] December 20, 2015 at 11:33pm

    Apparently so-I’m not quite used to us passing laws concerning the way OTHER nations handle their resources. Why am I reminded of Louis in “Titanic”, “I’m the KING of the world!!” Guess he thinks he is.

    Of course. They don’tr seem to realize the same right that they freely exercise to protest, or burn flags, is the right they want to repeal. We have succeeded in raising a generation of fools.

    Interesting that, one group of refugees is thankful, and another group is demanding. I wonder what the difference in the two is?

    Yep-apparently, when she actually had to perform the duties of her job, it was too much for her. The classic example of AA.
