Actually the fact that we know it is NOT “constant” is what’s such a BFD. Gravity can (and, most likely, does) change . . . just like time . . . speeds up, slows down, but AFAWK only moves in one direction. Gravity increases, decreases, but AFAWK only acts in one direction (attraction).
The two (time and gravity) are two perspectives on the same phenomenon. It appears as though we may be able to use gravity to change time and vice versa.
Theory is one thing . . . but a this point the ENGINEERING of how to USE the information is one sumbitch . . .

16% of registered voters voted for Obama. You were aware of that, right?
16% of registered voters is NOT EVEN CLOSE to “a majority of Americans.”

It’s a meaningless gesture. All spending bills originate in the House of Representatives.
According to the U.S. Consti . . . oh right never mind . . .
 February 8, 2016 at 10:09am
Yes, I know Presidents have been doing this “notional budget recommendation” gesture for decades. Unless your party controls the House of Representatives, where the budgets actually come from (hey, it’s in the Constitution!), it’s a pretty meaningless, political gesture.
Unlike all the other “meaningFUL political gestures” we get from this POSOTUS . . .

One of the major problems with your gratuitous assertion is that “populism” is now socialist/communist; union driven greed and envy. So frankly a “Nationalist/Populist” is so far removed from constitutional principles . . .
Foo had it right you know. A “Nationalist/Populist” is IDENTICAL to “National Socialism,” which just happens to be the party of . . . Oh never mind.
Go ahead and vote for Bernie or Donald. Let’s just get it over with.

You gotta have a lotta lumens to project that much . . .

Dude where’d you get that dab? Must be brutal on your cranium man . . . Far out hallucinations!

Why? Would you be distracted if one of youir classmates was wearing steel-toed boots? A hard hat? What about a dust mask or, frankly, any other pice of Personal Protective Equipment?
Have you spoken to anyone about your issues with PPE? This irrational fascination could definitely be career limiting . . .
 January 31, 2016 at 6:42am
Neither would I. Strong-side IWB or IWB cross draw would be much better. And 44 magnum for concealed carry?
If I caught any of my students with a 44 magnum strapped to their leg I would definitely send them to a competent combat arms instructor. Actually I would probably have the entire class do a research paper on concealed carry and self defense . . . Idiots generally run in packs . . .

They were booing their state legislature . . . For trying to lower the age at which a young adult could handle a firearm unsupervised.
I really WISH they had’ve been booing her ideas for more gun control, but they most assuredly were not.

I’m pretty sure you thought you had a point.
I’m equally sure it wasn’t relevant.
Now, if we want to discuss the concept of licensing private sales between individuals residing in the same state, well then now . . . different subject but okay.
“Loopholes” aside then, is it your position that a private individual should not have the right to sell personal firearms to other individuals in his or her own state without performing a NICS check?
 January 28, 2016 at 8:24pm
Sapper, not sure when you got your FFL but the Class III is assuredly WAY MORE than a “NICS Check.”
It’s an actual federal background investigation with fingerprints and the whole 9 yards.
Pretty sure you’re wrong on this one.

Once we start holding people and companies responsible (legally liable) for injuries incurred as a result of their prohibiting the use of PPE in their establishments, the flying dinosaur might have a point.
Think about it: I’m running lead smelting factory but I PROHIBIT my employees and customers from wearing NIOSH-certified masks and filters? I won’t let them wear hard hats? Or steel toed shoes?
OSHA would be crawling up their azzes in a heartbeat and the lawyers would be stacking enough paper to send their great grandchildren to Harvard.
A firearm is a piece of Personal Protective Equipment. You prevent me from having my own protection, you just created a bailment. The bailment means YOU are now 100% responsible for my personal safety. Any injuries (including pain and suffering) incurred under your supervision and care is now RECOVERABLE.
Why do we give companies and organizations sovereign immunity from liability in this instance?
You take away my steel toed boots and I lose a toe, you’re paying for it. You take away my firearm and I get gut-shot, you’re NOT paying for it?
 January 28, 2016 at 8:12pm
you got nothing except your own feelings, poser boi
” . . . all too numerous news reports of gun massacres . . . ”
Wow you really need to put down the crack pipe and JUST SAY NO TO IGNORANCE.
January 28, 2016 at 8:08pm
Dude, you need to know that citing wiki-freakin-pedia is the modern equivalent of using the old Nazi Germany analogy. The instant you use that ploy you just admitted you are a clueless moron.
Citing Wikipedia for ANYTHING is the modern-day rhetorical equivalent of “Nanny, nanny, Boo-Boo.”

Remember, every violent criminal NOT capped by an innocent victim will kill THAT victim (so now it’s a wash; you save 1,300 criminal lives so that 1,300 more innocent victims can die).
But that’s just first order thinking; the genii of the left don’t deal in sophisticated thinking, ok?
NOW the gun grabbers are also responsible for the DEATH OF EVERY FUTURE VICTIM of the criminal not shot DRT the first time.

Space aliens. You could sell your guns to space aliens. “If it only saves one child . . . ”
Holding suicides (the main reason for the lie “you are more likely to be killed by a family member” duh automatically counting suicides as “being killed by a family member” is the kind of bs logic hoplophobic fascists use), LEO shootings, and gang-gang violence aside, there are ~3,000 firearm deaths per year.
Out of the 3,000 firearm deaths, 1,700 are violent criminals preying upon innocent victims. 1,300 are legal gun owners defending themselves or others from violent armed criminals.
Okay, so take away all the guns from innocent, law abiding citizens . . . How many “lives did we save?”

It is clearly against the law to purchase a firearm for somebody else. yes, the law is stupid. But it’s the law.

littlelimabean you just admitted to committing a federal level felony. You broke the law, and you just told millions of people about it.
You might want to get your post yanked asap.
Someone from the BATF might be spooling up a warrant for your identity from The Blaze as we speak . . .
January 28, 2016 at 2:52pm
Maybe it was different prior to 1977 (my first gun show) but TODAY if you don’t register, sign up, and pay for a table they won’t let you sell Turkey Jerky let alone firearms!
