    “… We cannot have a society in which some dictator someplace can start imposing censorship,” … Uh yeah ok – the pot calling the kettle black much? Take a step back oh dear President-Dictator…. you’ve embarked on a path of censorship for quite some time now along with your lackeys.

    I wish you could have completed your wish to get into this line of work Monk. I watched an amazing short on how far automation with legs have come… it is also amazing. I would bet we are less than 10 years away from walking and arms-a-swingin’ quadriplegics!
    The short I watched had paralyzed people up and walking incredibly well. I wish there were more lengthy documentaries and information about things like this. Would be great for the soul to see :)

    That’s the point farmgirl… now the private insurance companies are not their own entities anymore – the government mandates lack of competition in the marketplace and regulates what is covered / not covered. How does this not compute?

    My wife doesn’t have the stomach for cleaning them… but man she can work some kind of magic with Squirrel. There’s tons where we live so we have it at least a couple of times a month, I never had anything like it until she tried some off the cuff rub and marinade she put together. Who ever heard of tender squirrel!? Those huge red ‘fox squirrels’ down here… get a couple of those with some sides and two can kill themselves with some nice leftovers for the pup! :)

    What the hell happened to Rand? His brain get sucked out of his head by the mainstream GOP along the way? He *used* to be pretty decent. It seems like more and more he’s becoming lock-step with the lame-brains.
    I’m sure the majority of YOUNG Cubans that did not come over here from there have no problem with this, but you ask anyone who came from Cuba 50+ years ago (give or take) how they are feeling right now.
    The problem is Rand – we didn’t get squat in return… hell we didn’t even get squat for the Cuban people in return!!! A paltry request or two, absolutely nothing drawn up and signed. Nada. Once again we are simply showing the world to our doorstep! Ugh. I bet Ted’s Dad could give you an earful on this one. Man.

    Geez! This guy has a resumè a mile long serving his country and others, manages to survive everything to 101 years old, and some dip**** thug pulls this kind of crap. I agree – forget jail, just put him 6 feet under. Why waste the money on food, clothes, and shelter?

    No, it makes you Altitudist! If you can ask me to get something off the top shelf, then why can’t I politely ask if you could grab my keys I just dropped on the floor? Or grab those pasta shells off the bottom shelf for me? Well?! HUH?! Yeah that’s what I thought! Friggin’ Altitudist! ;)

    Nilsson – no, Capitalism does in fact give freedom to the individual, Government has created Crony-Capitalism where it gives exceptions and graces to certain companies that pay for it under the table and for favoritism. That is not real Capitalism. Unfortunately as the U.S. government has grown out of control, so have we grown further away from freedom, and in turn actual Capitalism.

    Unless you never use and clean your gun, then you should be able to store it in whatever material you like. I have a cheapo Heritage Arms .22/.22 MAG revolver that is still in perfect condition that I leave in its leather holster that my brother custom made for it. He makes unbelievable leather works as a hobby. Insists that if he went into business it wouldn’t be ‘fun’ anymore… sad because it is simply amazing stuff.
    That revolver spends weeks at a time in the holster, in the gun safe during the winter months especially and it has been what… 5 years? No rust issues here. No difference between it and the Kyvex my Taurus sits in.
    Losing mold over time? What kind of leather holster experience did you have? Somebody give you a suede sleeve or something?

    I may not agree with a lot of what is said here at times, but you cannot possibly believe that Democrats or Republicans *either one* with a few exceptions, give a rat about women in general.
    The problem with your White House example is … that is the way it is everywhere in the United States with very few exceptions and in most cases – if there is any discrepancy it is in a woman’s favor, but for whatever reason politicians and newshounds “create” a fake war on women. There is no war on women. Women can live whatever kind of life they want in this country to the fullest extend they wish. Single, married, professional, home maker, business owner, you name it. No problem. My wife runs her own small business and has never *let* anybody hold her back from anything.
    As far as your daughters having better reproductive healthcare, my wife, mother, and grandmother would be better able to argue you into the ground that what we’ve just been saddled with has utterly destroyed the fantastic healthcare that we all *had* just a few years ago.

    @oldtimer – then somebody did a crappy plumbing job on your neighbors house! 4 bad leaks in under 20 years? That is unheard of. I live in an old farm house with a well… all cold steel piped with copper piping throughout the house. I’m the 3rd generation to live here… the only time we ever ‘fixed a leak’ was when we replaced all the fittings and joints to get rid of the old lead solder. That was just after I was born nearly 40 years ago. Only plumbing we’ve done since is replace a bad water heater long overdue needing replaced, and installed new sink and bath fixtures. I have no preference of copper over PVC – I’ve had to install both many times when I did construction for a while, but neither is more reliable than the other if installed properly.

    As maniacal as it sounds to have to create and pass a bill to protect citizens’ freedoms against ‘idiocracies’ created by other people… I think there should be more of this and it should be highly publicized. The more we can gain the states and the more we can install protective legislation that reinforces the constitution and abolishes the progressive march, the better.
    Eventually, we will have enough states on board for that Constitutional Convention of the States and we will get some crap handled.
    I truly hope when that day comes they stop any standing President from ever wielding executive action again, forcing the budget, and killing the IRS. Probably a lot to ask for the first states created amendments using this process, but something has got to give and be actually implemented or all hell is going to break loose.

    The point is – knowing it might fail, it was important to have the vote – it forces not just the RINOs we all know, but all of the Democrats to go on record supporting amnesty when they are attempting to skirt the issue and claim that they are not.

    Forcing this vote hand the republicans the very first piece of hard paper they can ‘shake back’ at the dems when they try the flip-flop argument tactic of do as I say not as I do. It is a small step, but an important one. Basically proof that if you use your brain and the process… guess what? You can actually force things to happen. Maybe if that gets proven a few more times, along with digging the dems feet further in the ground each time… the rest of the tag-along RINOs will fall in line and actually get something accomplished.

    I don’t buy into that. There is a difference between making the attempt to fill seats with what you perceive to be the ‘best option’ – as misguided as that may be… and being a leftists. Hannity is far from being a leftists, I think he is just all in for reclaiming the Republican party at any cost and has blinders on when it comes to election time. It is Republicans vs. Democrats and it is the ‘lesser of two evils’ and that is that in his mind. He’s not acting outraged, he is outraged because just like the rest of us – we’re ticked off that in many cases – there are no good choices for elections. There aren’t even any good third party choices in most cases. It is usually a choice between a progressive or a not quite so progressive… progressive. You’re screwed no matter what. With someone like Hannity that can actually have some impact on people – what the heck do you do? I would hate to be in any public-eye position dealing with politics these days. What a nightmare. I don’t listen to his show very often because it just isn’t my cup of tea, but he doesn’t appear ‘leftist’ to me.

    I live in Missouri, and unless they are counting mostly St. Louis and Kansas City, Jeff City and Columbia or something – those numbers are way off… most of Missouri is small towns, small farms, and everyone I know is pretty much self-sufficient. Maybe not everyone is prepared for the end of the world or anything, but I would bet that most people could last several days or even a couple of weeks without a problem. We’re set for indefinitely living on a small farm with a creek and several springs on the property if it really came down to it.

    No kidding Right? That was awesome to watch. Very cool idea.

    Although I sincerely applaud her efforts… the description seems a bit off to me. Perhaps a visiting teen who wanted to get away from the noise, listen to her tunes, and watch the world go by for a while before going back to the chaos? Maybe not, but I would think that otherwise would be included in the story, and I know I enjoyed sitting on the roof and getting that ’10,000 ft view’ of the world and drift off letting my mind wander when I was a kid.
    Just seems a little weird. Wish there were more specifics.
    Definitely don’t want to rain on the officer’s parade – she was doing a good thing for a good reason.

    Since when have you ever been worried about responsible journalism? LOL that’s a good one! hahahahahaha Wow. I’m gonna go eat dinner. That was great. :)

    The best present my Mom and Dad ever gave us was a beautiful plaque sort of wall hanging they had for almost 40 years that reads… “Always Kiss Me Goodnight” that now hangs right next to our bed. They’ve now been married for 53 years.
    We live by that, and I *always* kiss my wife goodbye in the morning / when I leave for work whether she is awake or not.
    My Granny joked one time you should never go to bed angry… one time your Grandad and I were up for three days, but 67 years later it still worked!
    I have to say that it does indeed work very well. We’ve fortunately not had the three day struggle yet, but I’m sure it might happen at some point. LOL

    Even if the person is a bold-faced, bigoted jerk like no other… if he was actually ticked off at a particular person(s) who in his mind had done wrong by him and he is so unstable as to go ‘punish’ or kill them… then no, it is NOT a hate crime – it is premeditated murder. If he was to just arbitrarily kill a Muslim because he was a Muslim… THAT would be a hate crime.
    Taking this story at face value – what stickers he had in his window have nothing to do with the facts of the case. Otherwise… there is something else going on nobody has told us yet.
