Life is not always safe. When much much younger, I rode and participated in hunt seat competitions. This was not the open jumpers, but the hunt seat over fences and on the flat. You were judged on form, neatness, control, and how well how well horse and rider meshed. Fell off a number of times. There was always the chance of injury, and in extremely rare circumstances, a death. It was an accepted risk to the sport. What I did I consider far less dangerous than the rodeo riders. They understand the risks and dangers as well. No one expects something really bad to happen except a few broken bones. However, on occasion there will be a fatality in the rodeos; it’s a dangerous sport after all. The risk is accepted, and you can’t protect everyone from everything. As for myself, I miss the horses, the country, the fresh air, and having the time to think.
Prayers for the family and friends. May God grant them peace, comfort, and support during this time of grief.

Prayers for quick recovery for the officer!
Said he was in surgery with entry point above left eye…head shots can be very devastating and recovery last a lifetime!
I agree the charge is a friggen joke!

Spot on Slap I am sick and tired of the liberal progressives attacking our god given rights!
I want this over too and do not understand why she is not behind bars already!
 May 29, 2016 at 8:07am
Funny how so many think it is always the man who is doing the abusing!
She will regret this stupid stunt because now she will be unarmed and have to defend herself using brute force!
Who knows up in Maine they may make Mr. Wilson surrender his firearms too!
if he lets her back in the house in most places there can be no guns in that house under a domestic abuse or protection order

Good job Andrew!
Time to target all progressives who abuse their authority and have them removed from these positions!

“North Carolina did something that was very strong, and they’re paying a big price, and there’s a lot of problems,” Trump added, pointing out the many companies that have since boycotted the state over the legislation, which requires individuals to use the bathroom that coincides with their biological sex.
So he is fine will being politically correct not to go against the progressives?
What happened to standing up for what is right in this country?
I happen to stand with my wife and daughter on this issue and could care less what others say or think!
The issue here has nothing to do with transgenders it has to do with allowing men into women’s/girls bathrooms and locker rooms. Perverts will exploit this and women and girls will become victims!
For the love of all that is holy..
“Perverts will exploit this and women and girls will become victims!”
NO NO NO.. Please Stop EATING THE SAME LIES AND FALSE TALKING POINTS GEEZUS!!!..
How on Earth can anyone rationally claim this when we have had these policies in place now for over forty years!!! AND NO SUCH INCIDENT HAS EVER HAPPENED!!!
Why are you people so completely and utterly gullible on this?
Predators don’t care about laws, they never have, except laws which outlaw their crimes, which have always been illegal!
People like you just will not.. will not.. look at the facts and look at the impact on transgender people. Instead you swallow hook, line and sinker, these stupid fantasies which actually end up harming even non-transgender women and girls by making them have to conform to feminine dress codes or risk getting harassed/beaten up.
I’m so over the stupid on Republican side.. you are woefully short of clues and it is no wonder we have someone like Trump one step away from the Oval Office. Idiocracy is almost a reality..
This problem isn't really hard. If Trump had a daughter (maybe he does) and cared about her, he would not want strange men who think they are women, going into the restroom or locker room of his little girl. There aren't any urinals in there. This is a plumbing and psychological issue that people need to have addressed. There's something in their hormones that is interrupting signals to the brain of some people. The rest are just pedophiles and boys trying to get in the girls' locker room. If the progs get their way I can see their end-game. They want to citizens to fight each other while they pass more offensive laws that go unnoticed. While we the people are cover 'the aftermath' of a bathroom bill that allows for pedophilia, rape, and anything else perverted they are going to be making their next move. So wise up America. Divided we fall and there's no reason to be divided on such an easy politically incorrect issue designed to divide and conquer us.
So Glock29, get your head out of that dark place and listen to what Trump said. His answer is right. It is not a Presidential issue. You have a far greater voice at the State level than at the Federal anyway. This Country has lost its dignity when a Candidate for President is asked about bathroom issues. Common Sense is uncommon in this country since we elected an affirmative action president. Let your local so called Representatives know loud and often how you feel. Have your wife and daughter get a womens movement going. Fight the Minorities with bigger Minorities. Women can accomplish more with one word than all the screaming minorities ever could. That word is NO !
The urban myth of transgender disguised male predators will be free now to snatch your wives and children is simply an absurd example of mass paranoid delusions from a ginned up threat fostered by right wing pathological liars and FOX News
At least Trump's fall back answer is "let the States decide." That's the right answer from the Fed's point of view. The fact that "he doesn't know yet" is is actual answer is unsettling. There's no evidence so far the Trump's going to "let the States decide" anything for themselves, once he makes up his mind.
The best answer is to let private businesses decide for themselves. Let local governments decide for public rooms in their jurisdiction. If their decisions are poor, they will suffer for it and the free market will sort it all out.
"Let the states decide" THAT my friends, *IS* the correct answer.
Make America Gay Again
Let the states decide their fate. If you state is stupid, then you need to get off your ass and tell a lawmaker.
From a personal side I disagree with Trump's position on this. I believe you should use the plumbing that suits your plumbing. But, from a political stance, I can't help but agree with Trump. This is a states rights issue and the federal govt. should not be involved.
So which companies actually went farther than just saying they would boycott the state and really did so? Mom and Pop entrepreneurs- here's your big opportunity!
And Glock, I agree with you that it has nothing to do with transgenders. It has everything to do with getting us all riled up and distracted.
Maybe you should ask youself-
“Wow, even that heel wrestling villain donald trump thinks my position is too openly prejudice……Is it?”
The problem as always is evangelicals being stupid.
They really need to read (if they can read) something else than "Magic for Dummies".

That is only for the law abiding Zipit!
Only ones who have guns in these gun free zones are the criminals the rest of us are just Bah bah baaaah, sheep!

Pretty clear to me Monk!
If this ever goes back to court we could easily win with Scalia’s spot being replaced by a conservative and showing how the babies react under an ultrasound as the evil ones tear their little bodies apart piece by piece!
One day this evil practice will end…hope it is in my lifetime!
Thanks Glock29! Already wrote to them. Here is what I wrote to them. Of course, anyone can put down whatever they want, just for me, personally, cursing them with unending resulting sexually harrassment lawsuits is even more daming than what is occuring with Target.
In lieu of your recent political bias agenda-driven press release that your parks will now let those with male genitalia use the women's restroom and those with female genitalia use the men's restroom, my family and I will be boycotting all Hershey's products and affiliations.
Understanding and diversity does not preclude common sense that 'gender identification' can be used as a ruse for any perverted, mentally ill person to take advantage of such backwards third world privacy policies. Perhaps you should look to the statistics on rape victims in third world countries to see that seperate male and female bathroom facilities is being implemented as data has shown it reduces the number of sexual assault and rapes.
You seem to be going backwards in your policies and evidently are pursuing an agenda against women and children since you cannot logically deny that you have put a target on the most vulnerable of our population due to the implementation of these insane policies.
After you return to your senses or have been sued into bankruptcy, once the victims of your sick agenda come forward, and additionally perhaps once you have fired everyone responsible for supporting the victimization of small ch
The victimization of small children, girls and women, we may remove our boycott. Until then, may you reap the whirlwind you have sown
I did just that! And I did not congratulate them for their wonderful inclusive policies!
Thanks Glock29, I just sent them my thoughts!
I appreciate your link (and gave you a thumbs up!)

I have not heard much about Fast and Furious in the media since the federal judge has forced the release of 20,000 emails…we all know Hillary was also tied to this scandal or at least helping to plot…I remember Hillary running her mouth about out of control gun sales near border towns just before Brian Terry was murdered by one of Holder’s illegal guns. Our government allowed the cartel to obtain thousands of firearms hoping to blame the lack of gun control laws but blew up in their face.
It sure would be nice to see Holder behind bars for his evil deeds!
Brother Holder is worth remembering even if he was useless in person. Publicly declaring that he would not prosecute vter intimidation cases where the alleged intimidaTORS were black and the alleged victims were white told exactly who and what O'Bummer was and is.
Perhaps the electorate has learned to ignore a sloppily infatuated media when it tries to sell us another racist, egotist incompetent communist acolytes the basis of nothing much beyond his smile and well pressed trousers. We can only hope!

Or even a little right of her far left progressive values….you got to move far right to get back to the normal sane side!
