Being dependent is definitely something to be ashamed of. Even Thomas Jefferson had to learn this the hard way when he visited Europe. He found that it is the relaxed attitude toward poverty and absence of shame that made people more comfortable with it. It was the shame felt toward poverty in the colonies that motivated them to do everything they could to stay out of it.

Here’s what they need to do:
Hire a hacker to hack into and “leak” the videos. It would be simple to “accidentally” set an admin password to default.
I do hope they are keeping multiple copies of those videos backed up with some air gapped from the Internet.

You may want to look up “non sequitur.” You did not explain how your conclusions follow from my statements. You even took the slippery slope farther than before. That was a surprise so well done with that bit. : )
It is definitely satisfying to see that the general public overwhelmingly agrees to the same sentiments. Trophy hunting is getting all kinds of bashed in the news and social media. Heck, he had to close his business and may have to file for bankruptcy fighting many of the charges.
Feels good. ; )

It is one great city to visit. I have never been treated unfairly there. Maybe I have been lucky, but I definitely intend on visiting again.

And you think Donald Trump is that change!? My how far we are dropping the bar. We can only pray and hope that he is merely running interference.
Yes. He is that change. Well he's the best change we can hope for right now. Do I like Cruz? Of course. But I'm talking about actually beating Hillary.
Are you kidding me? Trump and Hillary are BFF's!
Please explain "how far we are dropping the bar", if you will.
@FreedomFighter --- "My, how far we are dropping the bar." ------- Dropping the bar from where? ..... McCain? Romney? Or how 'bout George (We are entering a New World Order) Bush.?
That's not a rhetorical question, by the way.
Dropping the bar? obama was a first term sen. and hadn't even finished his term when he ran and was elected president. he's arrogant, he's a condescending liar, he has many negative traits, but the one thing he can do is BS with the best of them. All this and yet he has passed a health care that, while it sucks, was just a first of many that he actually did. I do not like the man because he's a socialist/communist/muslim in my eyes. But Repubs need to see this, he does more than just talk, he also performs. Too many repub lawmakers are full of hot air and I for one am really tired of their inaction.

So a non sequitur and a slippery slope argument? And in such a short space. I’m impressed.
1. Never was killing someone for merely hunting even suggested.
2. The dentist was not merely hunting.
3. The dentist killed for sport (aka trophy killing).
4. On top of that, the lion was a protected animal. It was obvious despite his statement.
5. Trophy killing is despicable. Take the “hunter’s” weapons away and let them go up against the animals when they are hungry.
Not sure how “any and all crimes” comes into play so I won’t even go there.
That should be easy to follow. Also, I hunt, but I eat what I hunt.

Thanks, LakeHartwellSailor, for at least showing that they do not negate each other and both are heinous crimes. Strange that you felt you had to resort to name-calling. Is it automatically considered confrontational when questions are asked?
 July 28, 2015 at 7:23pm
LakeHartwellSailor, How does one negate the other? Both are pretty disgusting

In this case, I agree with PETA’s sentiments entirely.
"In this case, I agree with PETA’s sentiments entirely"
So you want to kill people for hunting.
So why not just have one law for everything, Death for any and all crimes no matter what they are.
If you think the laws are not bloodthirsty enough, why not go all the way?
 July 28, 2015 at 3:58am
That is just sad. I am guessing you’re username is supposed to be sarcastic?
 July 28, 2015 at 3:57am
Yes. You could. And should have. : |
 July 28, 2015 at 3:53am
How do you even think that that is appropriate??
 July 24, 2015 at 3:01am
2bowdown, I agree. I hope he is just running interference for the other candidates. I want to hear more from Rand Paul and less of the childishness.
July 7, 2015 at 12:53am
By “accurate” you don’t mean racist do you? I am not saying that yours were since I did not see them, but I did see some racist comments disappear since that is wrong for obvious reasons.

As long as construction of the pipeline uses eminent domain, it is an affront to property rights and individual liberty.

Unfortunately, I don’t think Ted Cruz is electable enough. I have not met even one independent who is seriously considering voting for him. The GOP candidate that I have heard the most non-Republican consideration for is Rand Paul. I think he is the only serious contender that the GOP has that can pull independent and even some liberal votes over.
I did take that into account, and it only takes 20 mins for a recharge. Damn, I live this car. : )
May 4, 2015 at 9:34pm
THE reason that I may vote for him is because of his support for implementing the Fair Tax, the single most powerful economic policy that can help put America’s economy back into the hands of the people.

I highly doubt that anyone on this thread is a fan of Obama

I have switched to an electric car and I have already starting saving money. In fact, the longer I keep it, the more value I get. That was definitely not the case with my last car. For some people’s lifestyle it may not save them anything, but for me I pay less per month than I used to and I have practically no maintenance costs compared to before. My last car’s transmission went out and cost $3500 to replace. Now I have no transmission so that is not a problem.
