    @BryanB – I don’t know what state you live in, but I live in Missouri. I carry a gun in the car – in the console rear compartment.
    I have been pulled over a few times over the years… broken tail light. Speeding. Forgot to signal during a merge… etc.
    Never once was I ‘yanked out of my car’ because I had a gun in the car. Not once.
    You are full of dog squeeze. So long as you are straight forward with the officer about it, stay calm and be polite… I don’t see why you would have any problems in a state where it is legal to carry in your car.
    Maybe it could be that way where you live… but you can’t apply that to where everyone lives. Get over yourself. You’re nuts.

    Rigged or not, Glenn needs to follow his own advice and live and let live. This constant bemoaning over Ted is gross. Look, you’re disappointed. I’m disappointed. However, the man made his choice – move on. You need to tear the man down now? What good is this doing anyone? Get over it, be a decent man, and move on with your day. Done.

    Johnbarly – where, in anything you just rattled off, does it justify hurting (even sometimes killing) other people, destroying their property, and shutting down public utilities and services?
    Protesting is one thing. Being pissed of is one thing. Turning your pain and suffering around and physically inflicting it upon others? Go to jail. Absolutely go to friggin’ jail.

    Actually, my buddy who served said there were more ex-gang members in with him, that joined, served, *thought* they had ‘got out’, then went home (usually a new location from where they started) and the old gang tracked them down and they ended up getting killed for trying to leave.

    Isn’t this double jeopardy? I’m no Krispy fan, but I didn’t think you could be tried for the same thing twice in a regular court of law…?
    I realize that congressional hearings and such are different… but he was found not guilty in a court of law was he not?
    I thought the 5th amendment protected people from being tried twice for the same crime… I’m obviously wrong here, but what is the precedent that must be set before that is true then?

    gmann – “refer to them as the “enemedia” because they are a real enemy”
    My first thought was something of a more posterior parallel, but ‘enemy’ works just as well. lol

    Actually, I think the one thing all of the school kids should get – is free lunch. You know why? Because every friggin’ one of us, pays for school. Even those of us who do not have any kids. There is a crapload of money, flooding into those schools that should not even be allowed to be taken from the citizens of this country. I don’t have kids, never had any kids, yet you can tax me for a public school for kids I don’t have?
    Then by God, make sure the little twirps have a hot lunch. If you’re going to brainwash them, at least ensure they get a hot meal and a pat on the back for swallowing the rest of the crap all day long.
    ‘Nuff said.

    Slender, that is the oldest, and lamest excuse that has no bearing whatsoever. It isn’t because someone is ‘different’ that they are looked upon with hesitation. It is because they have a *known element of lethal intent towards you people* that makes any of us hesitate to allow them past our front door – figuratively or literally.
    Using your own ridiculous analogies, do we give the diabetic more candy? Do we hold a golf club over our head during a lightning storm? Do we walk across the intersection without looking both ways? Drive through stop signs with disregard?
    Of all the thousands of other things we might die from than terrorism – why in the world would we intentionally put ourselves at higher risk for any of them?
    The same goes for any of it. Including *terrorism*. Why in the world would you intentionally *increase* the risk of terrorism when you don’t have to? It makes zero sense.

    Not arguing that point, what I’m arguing is that this man has a valid point from his perspective as what *his job* is supposed to be, and his understanding of what his job is supposed to be when he is called to do it.
    Here is your work order, service ticket, whatever they want to describe it as, now go do your job. So he goes and does his job.
    It would be even more important to destroy the device being a government device. I’ve done work at Senator offices many times, replacing PCs, laptops, doing new rollouts, or just replacing drives. EVERY time it is a requirement to low-level wipe and then physically destroy the original drive.
    In the government offices I’ve done this at, especially Senate offices, the additional terms are that it must be done in front of office personnel.
    It must also involve the use of a metal hammer until device is sufficiently damaged visibly or audibly (can hear the chunks of what’s left rattling around inside). Verified and signed off on by person(s) present.

    Too many consonants for the editors.

    I hate to say it, but this is a legitimate statement by this guy. Whenever I go onsite to replace a hard drive, mobile device, thumb drive, or any item that contains confidential information, it is actually *policy* for most of the industry to require the device be destroyed – usually there is a specific mention of being struck with a hammer at least so many times until proven inaccessible and irretrievable. (Provided said data has been backed up to a new drive / device / etc. already of course)

    Now that is something I can get right behind you with zap. Let’s bring back the small local banks and financial institutions, and get rid of the gigantic super-banks that engender this kind of crap. De-regulate the institutional BS, and reinforce the actual monetary oversight.
    Get that local money flowing again. Absolutely!

    Sure you can – just read the linked article right at the very first line of this one. It spells it all out quite nicely.
    They basically signed him on under a minor league contract. They’re sending him through the instructional league at spring training complex, and they are not committing to a timeline for when/if he will promote through to fall/winter ball, and then on to an affiliate team.
    Just takes a single click and a little reading.

    You’re leaving out too much and it switches from objective to subjective… it is pretty easy to understand what he is saying, even if it is not the best worded:
    In a nutshell – he’s perfectly fine with you expressing your own opinions. His personal opinion is that it shouldn’t not involve the flag or anthem, and if you choose to do so, then you can also endure the consequences of his opinions. So basically – you have your way of protesting, and if it interferes with the game and/or insults others (really – coach’s prerogative regardless of the reason), then your butt is on the bench. End of list. Simple.
    There’s no dichotomy here… it’s pretty cut and dried. There are consequences for everything, just a matter of degrees depending on circumstance. Trying to utilize those to prove something that doesn’t exist… well it doesn’t work.

    Oh geez… when you put it that way… guess I’m gonna write-in and vote for my Dad. If electing him would somehow reflect what my character is? I hope I make it to that point someday.

    SS – As you said, not being critical of you personally, but there is a reason these things can and do grate on people. The usage of modern sentence abbreviations “…If Republicans had ran …” vs. “…If Republicans had been running/in charge of/etc. …” is not in the same category as using a grammatically incorrect structure, such as a double negative.
    I’m not usually a grammar nazi, nor spelling nazi for that matter. We’re just online here and typos, etc. happen all the time so who cares.
    I will admit though, trying to have a conversation with someone that is constantly using what is commonly referred to as ‘ebonics’ (especially if it is heavily accented and used throughout), can be extremely grating. Simply because I am having difficulty understanding that person who I also know has the ability to speak ‘normal English’.
    Mainly because I grew up in an area where “ain’t, cain’t, coulda, shoulda, helluva, etc.” are pretty ingrained in the ‘local English’. However, we are all perfectly aware of what the correct grammar is. If I or most people I know are speaking with someone they don’t know, or are in a professional or public situation, then you clean up your language (not just talking about cursing) out of respect and courtesy to those around you.

    What does that matter? You and others explode even if it is the *actual* enquirer or any other offhand rag that makes even the slightest ‘onionized’ comment that is about Hillary or family.

    Besides, you are responding to a post that is not even referencing the Daily Mail. mrca was pointing out the consistency between the likes of the Daily Mail and the Mainstream Media – it’s gotten that bad at this point.

  • [19] September 1, 2016 at 12:48am

    We’re doing just fine punishing ourselves at this point. I think you and your pal Satan can go have a great time without us. Eventually we’ll shirk all of you somehow.

    My only problem is with dragnets. Supposed ‘spot checks’ or ‘random check points’ that are supposed to be for drugs or whatever.
    I don’t care what state comes up with what sort of exception to the rule – we are supposed to be able to travel this country unmolested. Period. Unless of course we actually do something wrong.
    That is the only time I am very reluctant to just pucker up and hand over my information for no reason. I ended up going to jail over it on one occasion. Simply because I asked ‘why?’ – end of conversation. Pulled me from the car, told me he didn’t have time for abusive smartarses, and booked me for insulting an officer, etc. etc.
    Fortunately had all the audio recorded on my dashcam. Charges were dropped. They sure didn’t pay my tow / impoundment fees for my car though. Meh.
