    Perhaps this is the logic:
    1) Go to economically depressed liberal area.
    2) Set up shop.
    3) Hire as many people as you can.
    4) When the next gun control type political figure for the area comes up for election he/she will have to balance the misguided gun control policies against the desires of the newly employed (and now creating a tax revenue) people.
    5) Expand until you have put gun rights (CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS) so far out of political danger in that area that the rights of the citizens in that area will not be threatened by NYC style gun right infringement.
    6) Set up shop in another liberal, economically depressed area and repeat.

    What do you think? Possible?

    To the government of the state of Louisiana,
    You represent a state. That state is filled with citizens, your citizens. While you wish to provide the best you can for your citizens I ask that you do not bow down to any privately owned company. If you do this then you become beholden to that company and not your citizens. You can not serve two masters. The people of Louisiana are your master, no one else.

    Ever open a bank account, use a debit card, apply for a job, legally drive a car, apply for a loan, start a lease, join the military, get a passport, become a citizen, get into an R rated movie or purchase alcohol when you looked too young to? If you did any of these things in your life I’m willing to bet you were asked for a form of photo ID. Why is it the most important thing we can do as citizens that holds the greatest responsibility to our country (and other countries that deal with us) we shirk away from insuring that the person attempting to vote is A) of age to vote B) a citizen C) whom they claim to be? Votes have consequences that are far reaching and we treat the validity of the voter with the same care as someone buying gum.

    I don’t speak the language but I imagine part of the dialogue went something like this;

    INTERVIEWER- What is bad about this war?

    KID- Well I would say one of the worst parts is when an explosion occurs behind me and my friends and the A-hole adults I’m talking with outrun me and my friends to cover.

    I admit it’s been a minute since I’ve looked at a globe but is ‘Nordic’ the right term for this storm. By the time lapse weather map it looks like this storm advanced from west south west to east north east. Are Nordic countries in Europe (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark)? Unless things have changed Europe is to the east and at no point touch the Pacific ocean. Did a bunch of ‘undocumented’ Vikings set up their own country in Baja California or something? Am I missing the point or did my public school education fail me? Maybe the storm is a result of thousands upon thousands of Nordic Track exercise machines being used at once. Could it be because of that cr-appy movie THOR taking place in New Mexico be the justification for the naming of the storm? I just don’t get the naming of the whole thing.

    Unless there were laws or rules broken on university property then the university should do the smart thing and recognize that these citizens are allowed to act in any legal way they wish and should have nothing to comment on. The university is being paid to provide an education, not comment on students personal activities. If laws or rules were broken on school property then take action against the offenders otherwise mind your own business.

    Did he back up this statement with facts? Exact numbers, or locations or names or even a location to get the information to verify his claim? No? Just throw out generalities and watch your You Tube counter climb higher, get a few more songs downloaded. I think this guy is talented, I do, but he is spreading misinformation. Mack, stick to writing/singing/composing music unless you have the facts to back your claims.

    How do you figure this Tom? I just can’t fathom any sane person thinking this let alone saying it.

  • November 9, 2013 at 2:36pm

    So, if those that complained changed MUSLIM to MORMON would they still complain?

    So you think the police and this womans’ infant children were conspiracy to set this woman up?

    Can we all agree that EVERYONE is innocent until PROVEN guilty? IF you agree to this then wait, wait for the justice system to process this case. Should he be getting paid while he waits for the trial? I believe so. I also believe that if he is found guilty then he should have to IMMEDIATELY repay the money he was receiving while he was waiting for trial. If he is found guilty I hope they throw the book at him.

    (Continue)
    …….the streets are full of people that have killed other humans and have returned back to society. The vet and the cop that have taken a life are not dangerous to you (so long as their kills were justified). Leave us sheep dogs alone.

    And I’ll take that as a ‘Thank You For Your Service and Sacrifice Now Forget That Silly Instilling Democracy Hype You Spent 3 1/2 Years Attempting on OUR Behalf’ from the Senator. Yes, I HUNTED PEOPLE. I train young men to HUNT PEOPLE. Yet somehow THEY, WHOM HAVE NEVER BEEN, think that I can’t tell the difference between American civilian and enemy combatant? Senator, quick question and answer time; (1)Since the founding of this country how many wars have we fought? (2) Were there ever VETERENS of these wars that returned to society after their service was no longer required? (3) How many of these vets used weapons of war to go on murder sprees versus how many settled down to quiet, peaceful and productive lives? (4) Pretty small ratio huh? In the book “On Killing” there is a passage about there being 3 types of people in the world. The first and most numerous are those that are for all intents and purposes, SHEEP. They are non violent and content with life. The second type is the SOCIOPATH which for descriptive reasons are labeled WOLVES. They take and murder without regard or reason. Now the third group are also non violent until they need to be, until they see the SHEEP in danger from the WOLVES. This person is the SHEEP DOG. The majority of your vets, cops, firemen and those that put themselves at risk purely for the public/nations’ good to save those that can’t, won’t or are too terrified to defend themselves are SHEEP DOGS. Senator the streets are filled with p

    Continuing ………
    Vets and retired military far far far outnumber active duty, reservist and National Guard combined. Another thing to note and its really sad to say but, nothing happens in the military without some civilian federal employee, contractor or local vendor allowing it to. How does the Army get its diesel for their M-1s? Do we have our own oil wells and distilleries on post? Nope. The diesel is trucked in or piped in. Who drives those trucks? People like you and me, citizens of OUR country. And it’s not diesel but everything, food, oil, ammunition, replacement parts and the oh so under valued til you don’t have it toilet paper. So when you stop to think about it the chances of the government going all 1930′s Germany is ZILCH. We are to headstrong a people, to individualistic a people, to put up with that sort of foolishness.

    Ok, I’m done with my rant. Carry on.

    Ok,ok,ok…….I’ve read comments like this “Oh the government is out to kill U.S. citizens!” One too many times not to finally put my two pennies in.
    Here are a few of my questions and my thoughts on what the probable answers are;

    Who is the government made up of? Robots? Aliens? (The outer space kind for you smart a**es)
    (My answer) The government is made up of US. That’s right people, just plain ordinary people. Now these people are just like you and me, they have mothers and fathers, wives,husbands and kids. They have nothing to gain by helping emplace a tyrannical government dictatorship. Really stop to think about it how many people really benefit from a dictatorship. Usually just one, the dictator. Now surely his friends and family will too but this is the USA, we’re big geographically and we have a pretty good sized population so those on the dictators Facebook Friends list would be GREATLY outnumbered by us commoners. Now I’m sure you’re referencing other dictatorships past and present and saying things like “China is bigger and they’re a dictatorship for all intents and purposes.” , and you are right…except for one little thing……they are not Americans. Americans are stubborn. Disagree? Look at any point in OUR short history when our backs were to the wall and the chips were down…..what did we do? We flipped a middle finger at the odds and opposition and drove on. Examples? “Come and take it” the Alamo, “I have not yet begun to fight” J.P

    Very disappointing to see Americans willing to propose this being done on other Americans.

  • February 8, 2013 at 3:57pm

    (I’m trying to remember the dialogue. I think it went something like this)
    “Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!?”
    “No!”
    “Ummmmm, the Germans didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor.”
    “Shut up he’s on a roll.”

    While I agree that drones may be more humane in so far as they allow observation and limited strike abilities without having to place our people within the range of retaliation/counter fire, I would not say they are humane. They are a tool just as an airplane or helicopter is a tool. The weapons (depending on UAV type and mission) are also tools just as a round of ammunition or a bayonet is a tool. All these tools are without judgement, remorse, compassion or any of the other traits of humans and their emotions. While drones (UAV’s, UCAV’s etc) may allow you to target and kill an enemy I believe that if anything they may be considered less humane. (From my own experience) A UAV can not render aid to someone it has targeted once they’ve been neutralized as a threat but are now wounded. A UAV can not relay to its operator the dynamics of the situation in the same way that the senses can by you actually being near the target and (for lack of a better term) ‘in the moment’. UAV’s are great tools and many many lives (on both sides) have been saved by them but, they are only tools, not human and therefore (in my opinion), incapable of being labeled as a more humane way of waging war. The person operating the UAV and the decision makers are the ones that are humane, not the tools.
