That’s an incredibly poor response.
1. My point is that singling out a specific company like RCA when there are 1000s of producers is slanderous. This is like how CNN did not want to sully the word “scandal” by tying it to the Clintons. Remember when CNN sent out the memo to all employees not to use the word “scandal” in any story about the Clintons. Right?
2. RCA makes 1000s of different cables in various sizes, possibly even some approaching the size of jumper cables. As does Sony, LG, JVC, Samsung, etc.
3. The proper term might better be, “Electronics cable” or “A/V cable.” Not as widely recognized a term? Poor baby! LEARN. Words mean things!
4. I never said they should omit “RCA” in favor of exclusively using the word “cable.”
5. It is sad that your world is so small that you need such branded relations to grasp a specific concept, not to mention you own hubris to assume that everyone else marches in lock-step with you in that specific thinking. You probably drink Merlot with raw oysters because wine is wine and wine goes great with raw oysters.
6. Dumbing-down the world: Only an idiot relies on a specific brand name to carry a concept without regard to the repercussions of tying that brand name to the incident involved. Like people who say, “Google it.” Teaching people to accept Big Brother (no one outside of the NSA is more intrusive than google.) How many dumbasses conceptually stopped turning on the “News” to turn on “CNN”? No “Coke.” “Pepsi!”
7. You can bet your a$$ that if she had used jumper cables, even the idiots who wrote this story would say so.

“an RCA cable”
FINALLY some proper investigative reporting. I will never buy RCA again for their part in this heiny-ous crime against poor children who only wanted to burglarize their neighbors.
Honestly, what moron thought it was necessary to put a brand name to the “weapon” used on these mini-thugs?
Because if they’d only said “cable,” people would let their imaginations run wild. Jumper cables perhaps? Big difference.
I need to know the color and length of the cable before I can decide if it is appropriate to o use or not,

Lesson from Las Vegan and well-versed gambler and numbers-cruncher:
“10 to 1″ is a moderate long shot. It means, roughly, “1 shot in 10″ and therefore a $1 bet wins $10. The easiest visual example is the roulette wheel offering 35 to 1 (or the seemingly-better-but-exactly-the-same “36 for 1″) for any single number bet. Bet $1 on each of 1-36. If #36 wins, then 1-35 lose. the payout is 35 for the $1 winning bet and you are “even” at $36. 0 and 00 are slyly added to give the house its edge. I say “slyly” because people often ignore “nothing” which is how many consider “0″ and “00″; if “the house” replaced “0″and “00″ with “37″ and “38,” the odds would be more obvious.
“10 will get you 1″ would be what you should say, (or “dollars for doughnuts”) implying that the outcome is so likely that betting that it will happen will gain very little. Consider any horse race where the “favorite” is 4-5 (betting $5 will win $4 or “5 will get you 4″) and the horse considered least-likely to win is 70-1.
While we’re on it, my biggest peeve in gambling is craps players rooting for “7.”
Much, much MUCH, MUCH more money is won when the shooter DOESN’T throw a “7.” Even a conservative bettor can turn $100 into $1000 if he’s betting on a table where 40 straight rolls come without a 7. If 40 straight “winner sevens” come, a conservative bettor (on a $100 buy-in) would win about $300 based on $5 bets becoming $10 bets as the table “heats up.”

Cancun? Americans shouldn’t be patronizing Messico. One might as well be buying Volkswagons in 1938. We could run a very long thread on how Mexico is at war with the USA, and it’s not just illegal aliens.
181 Americans Murdered in Mexico Since 2013:
Have you forgotten about Brian Terry, David Hartley, teens Carlos Bermudez, and Juan Echeverri…
FBI reported only 199 Americans were kidnapped in Mexico in 2014 (Breitbart)
Not to mention Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

It’s a good thing he’s not an illegal alien or he’d already be back on our streets and preparing to vote Hillary2016.

Did you hear the one about the Vietnamese lady-boy named Tran?
Probably not — unless the vegetarian follows another kid around the lunchroom and gives him a hard time about eating meat (which is NOT what occurred).

I’m in Las Vegas, not a great place for BCs. Unfortunately, I am not in a stable situation to accept another dog. My wife is ill and I can’t be sure where I/we will be in 6 months.
Perhaps using my patented technique will burn some energy off yours and mellow him out:
Drive with the dog outside the car! Mine is trained to run across people’s yards or along access streets near and in our dessert looking for rabbits. I stop, he stops; I turn, he turns. If we come towards people, I simply say “truck” and he hops in the back – over the tailgate, I don’t need to move. (My first dog was good enough he could cross divided highways like PCH in Long Beach, CA.)
He runs on the sidewalk or between the bushes and fences. Sometimes I stop to let him smell and pee on corner bushes, but he stops and just stares at me: “c’mon, idiot, let’s go,” he’s saying. I’ve clocked him at 25MPH for 200 yards. I run him at least twice each day for 1-2 miles, with water breaks and foot excursions into thicker brush.
People see us on the larger roads and stop, asking if I need help corralling my escaping dog. Once I tell them he’s trained to do this, they notice he’s waiting patiently at my front right bumper.
I make him do lots of tricks before he’s fed and he has to wait in his chair (yes, a standard people chair) before going out or being fed. Like “truck,” “chair” is a command that he recognizes as a prequel to reward. I can give you and your 9er more tips if you like.

Barbara Boxer thinks the sentence is too short? If Boxer thinks this kid should be in jail then I’m inclined to believe this kid is completely innocent. Just going with the odds here. I’m sure the Castros, Adolph, Stalin and Mao punished some bad, guilty people properly too, but Boxer? That’s just too hard to believe.

Based on what? Not all dogs run away (a question I get all the time as a leash-free dog owner) and not all dogs stray from home for a little attention.
Unfortunately, I haven’t yet broken my dog’s love of our UPS driver with the pocket full on treats. He’s in her truck before it’s stopped, if I don’t say something (harshly!) when he sees her coming.

Right now, some Libtard is filing a complaint that Duchess is not properly contained on a leash, on a chain, in a pen, kennel or fenced yard.

1. Adopt, yes — and NEVER buy from craigslist.
2. Understand the dog you get, though. I’m the 4th owner of my Border Collie. Previous 3 obviously couldn’t deal with his nature (the neeeed for speeeeed! …and problem solving!); at least 1 of the previous owners abused him because they didn’t have a clue as to what a BC needs or the moral compass to treat a dog better than a hillary.
3. Most people today are no more qualified to raise a puppy than they are to vote (take Lindsey Graham…PLEASE!)
Ok Hoo what state do you live in and do you want another BC? We have a BC that is 1 year old and is TOO aggressive with our very shy 9 year old...he is fine with our other 4 children but not the shy one.
I'm in Las Vegas, not a great place for BCs. Unfortunately, I am not in a stable situation to accept another dog. My wife is ill and I can't be sure where I/we will be in 6 months.

hoohoo, i scour craigslist and facebook for geriatric/end of life dachshunds whose owners, for whatever reason, cannot keep them anymore. im talking ages 14 plus. the older the better. i just want to give them a home for their final days. most are only with me a year or so before i have to put them to sleep, and yeah it hurts, but i know their final days here are probably some of the best theyve had in many years. senior dogs are really the best.

Streep make my genitals wilt like Deb Greasyman. We’re talking about turning an “outie” into an “inie.” Mayne Bruce Jenner had an extreme reaction in that manner.
