The problem with peter king and most of the other folks “representing” us is they haven’t realized that ANY expansion of federal authority will result in abuse of power and corruption. At this point we can not safely enact ANY law that gives more power to ANY part of this corrupt executive branch. I don’t care if you even agree in principle with the idea that terrorists shouldn’t be able to buy guns it is CLEAR this expansion of the law will be abused. Anyone who doesn’t realize that is a fool.

Absolutely. John is ashamed of himself? Well, John, a whole lot of us are ashamed of you too.

Pretty simple isn’t it? Only a truly obnoxious progressive would assume he “owned” public property just because he did some work to maintain it. It is a mental disorder. Tell ya what on the day there is no food or the lights go out anyone with an ounce of common decency and sense will steer clear of those zones.

Around here our dogs mark their spots by peeing around the perimeter. That might work.
 February 21, 2015 at 8:50pm
Amen bro. Phew this is a rather silly discussion. Over a parking spot. Wow. I pray my ass never gets that uptight.
 February 21, 2015 at 8:46pm
Okay – for the sake of argument lets say she shouldn’t have parked in the spot someone else cleared. Hey – I might have done the same thing. I don’t have any knowledge of the local jungle rules. Anyway for violating some obscure local code of ethics some local self-justifying vigilantly extracted justice by vandalizing her car. Pretty sad state “social norms” if you ask me. Some people on here defend vandalism because they believe they have some claim to public space if they make an effort to clear the snow from it. Well. I sort of get it that if you worked hard to clear a space it is annoying if someone else takes it but there is no excuse for vandalizing her car. Taking the space might be an “local issue” ethics violation but taking a hammer to her windshield is a criminal act. So. Both parties might be wrong but one is criminally wrong.
OK, you shovel a couple of tons of snow so you can park your car in front of your house and then tell me how well you would take it to have someone move in and park in that spot, to spend the night with her boyfriend so she can get her ashes hauled.
And that is an example of liberal logic by bob the mechanic. You sure you aren’t just jealous because it wasn’t you getting screwed by her physically but getting screwed by her out of your parking spot. Haha.
 February 21, 2015 at 8:20pm
Me too. All the folks in my neighborhood get along and cooperate. We don’t vandalize each others cars.
 February 21, 2015 at 2:10pm
Well you absolutely would have a right to use my wallet, if it was public property. Which it isn’t. At least not yet.
According to you logic if I spend a couple of days cleaning a public beach I am entitled to have exclusive use of it. Maybe I’ll give that a try. I’ll let ya know how it works out for me. Ha.

Around here throw trash on the street is not acceptable by law.
I have enough respect for my neighbors and my neighbor’s private property to not vandalize it if they accidentally inconvenience me.
Tell me if I accidentally close a door in your face will you feel so violated that you’ll burn my house down?

Just a little slip away from improving the gene pool. Too bad he made it.
 February 21, 2015 at 12:27pm
If you live in a place where you have to park your car on the PUBLIC street you get what you deserve. Tough break if you clean off and spot and someone else takes it. It is the PUBLIC street. It isn’t your personal space. You aren’t paying rent for it, don’t have a deed, and have no claim beyond urban jungle rules. I call B.S. on the urbanites and their bogus turf claims. The lady who took this spot was perhaps ignorant of the jungle mentality common in the over crowded areas but the jerk who busted up this car is a criminal and should be arrested and prosecuted. The parking spot isn’t owned by anyone but the car is “hers”. Last time I checked vandalizing someone’s personal property is a crime.
There is such a thing as social norms. It is like how it is unacceptable to let a door slam in the face of a person behind you. Do you do that? Or not throwing trash in the street. Whatever, if you have no respect for your neighbors then you are just as bad as a criminal alien.
And you "grandpa" (glad you are NOT related to me with your asinine ideas) "think" that YOU and others SHOULD have the "right" to take advantage of some resident's HARD WORK, SWEAT and EFFORT in clearing a space for HIS car whne he has to go to work.
Well "grandpa" hand over your wallet, I have a RIGHT to the money you have earned too.

Show us your papers. What’s the big deal? Seems perfectly normal for a police state.

Dear Chipotle corporate management. Call us after you tell us what steps you have taken to teach your employees how to show respect. Ya know I’ll bet the Chick-fil-a employees are taught to respect the customers regardless of their personal political differences. Apparently your standards are lower. Until then – We’ll find another restaurant. Frankly I’m not sure how I could be sure the Chipole employees aren’t spitting in my food because they don’t like how I look. Seems like a good chain joint to avoid. Low bar, low pay, low standards, low training, and low quality of service.
I would much rather go to a Chick-fil-a. Everyone I have gone too was consistently clean, service was excellent and the staff courteous and spoke plain English.

42 yo mental moron with her clearly disturbed 18 yo mental case husband. Yeah. Sort of says it all. I’m sorry. The part that sucks about this story is that we all pay for defectives like this to exist. We pay for them to be “main streamed”. It would be better, when we discover them, to put ‘em in a home some place. A lock down. Mental cases should not be living in normal society. Oh wait – that might take down 60% of the Obama supporters.
December 14, 2014 at 10:16pm
Amen, Tbart. I’ll hold my nose and vote with the guys willing to work within the republican framework because a vote for a rino like McConnell is better than no vote or a vote for a leftest community organizer. Vote for them and push to change the framework. I would love to see the two party ruling elite class destroyed but the odds of it happening are minimal. Third party stuff beyond a vote for county dog catcher is not productive. Really we need to blow up the corrupt washington system to realize honest change but there just isn’t enough momentum to get that done. 80% of the American voters are essentially clueless when it comes to understanding the real problem of elitist rulers. So sticking with the few conservatives in the republican machine is the best bet at this point in time. So I’m with you. Staying home is folly. Actually staying home is just giving up. Frankly I am not giving up. And neither should you. Support the most likely potentially conservative republicans you can and vote no matter how hard you have to hold your nose.

There is my guy. Right there on the list. Lamar Alexander. I came out critical of KY-ians for foolishly “sticking with Mitch” because Mitch has the experience to “bring home the bacon for KY’ but here in the Volunteer state we are doing exactly the same thing. Voter ignorance? Not always. Some of the most politically savvy KY-ians I know turned away from Bevin because “I have to vote for what is best for KY”. Defeatist attitude.
If we ever have any hope of cleaning out these lifetime ol’ relics it is a constitutional convention. First order of business term limits. Next is lobby restrictions. No more K street. Get them OUT. Washington needs a bath with scalding hot water. Flush the scum and bring in people willing to serve instead of people looking to get wealthy gaming the system. I’ll vote for a stinky wet sneaker before I will cast a vote for Lamar Alexander. I’m not a third party supporter but something has to change or we are screwed.

Wait wait wait. He shot him in the back. I’ll bet his hands where up. Normally ya might think shooting someone in the back is an indication they were running away. Maybe? So even in states where there are laws permitting you to protect yourself, shooting someone in the back is not a detail in your favor. Clearly the 22 yo was not white or he would have been charges with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal discharge of a firearm, and probably murder because shooting someone in the back sort of implies you were a little past the point of defending yourself.
GrandpaOf4 you can bet the shooter was black too or like you said he would have been charged with a crime and Al would have been there in a flash since he was most likely in the White House advising Obummer (I refuse to call him President) on how to handle all us white folk out here. Yea I bet the 22 yr old was black too.
 December 13, 2014 at 6:34pm
I have a reasonable compromise.
Protestors – Don’t call the police when you need protection or someone robs you. They might shoot a criminal or something and if the criminal is in a protected class that will be bad. So just don’t call them. Call Rev Al. Ask him to send over someone to protect you.
Police – Just refuse to go into high crime neighborhoods. If you see a criminal in the inner city or ghetto area just go the other way. Leave ‘em to fend for themselves. Why risk it? You might do something totally legitimate in the name of protecting & serving but there is a high probability it will turn on you. You can’t protect people who don’t want to be protected. They will call you just to set you up. Just don’t go. Draw up maps of “no-go” zones and forget about it.
 December 13, 2014 at 2:46pm
If you actually don’t know the difference between charity and welfare I feel sorry for you. Oh and hey, before you pretend to tell us how Christ would feel, I dare say, it would be a good idea to get to know Him first.
 December 7, 2014 at 9:59pm
Amen. Not a dime to these jock, joke, thugs. No foozeball, no hockey, no spectator sports at all. The sooner Americans stop wasting their time and money on panem et circenses the better off they will be.
