    If women are so well suited for military service, on the front lines, then why don’t they show us? Let’s have an all-female company or platoon and send them in.

    If they fight and win as well as their male counterparts, then great! But, I suspect that will not be the case. Not because they are less patriotic or less important or less of a human, but just because they are less aggressive and less physically powerful than your average male military person.

    Ignoring the facts of the real, physical world because somebody may get their feelings hurts is the height of stupidity. It is stupid and it is dangerous – to them, their fellow soldiers and our country.

    There are places in our military where women may be better than men, but the front line isn’t it.

    “If you want to make a combat unit ineffective, add some women to it,” retired Gen. Robert Barrow, the former commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, had said at a 1991 hearing before Congress.

    Why doesn’t God just drop in for a chat? That would settle everything, and possibly bring the people of the world together. Seems like a small thing to pop in and set us all straight.

    And why is Jesus being depicted as a white guy? Did they read the Bible before they cast this character?

    Cherie MAnning has nothing to do with this company since 2009 (as her LinkedIn page states). The last CEO listed on their business page with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Business & Lien website is Tom Ahonen. But, according to his LinkedIn page, he left the company in December 2010 – which is the last year that the company filed a business renewal with the state of Minnesota. (See http://mblsportal.sos.state.mn.us/Business/SearchDetails?filingGuid=060b6bf2-aad4-e011-a886-001ec94ffe7f for their business filing info).

    Their last filing with the Sec of State seems to have been a “Administrative Dissolution – Business Corporation (Domestic)” on 08-1-2012. I don’t know if that means that they closed the company or just reorganized it.

    In any case it looks like they did not renew their business license for 2011 or 2012 (according to the renewal history tab on the above referenced page).

    Looking further into the company that sells targets of children and pregnant women the Department of Homeland Security to “..desensitize themselves to the idea of shooting a (armed) child, pregnant woman, or young mother, for just a couple of bucks”, it looks like Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. has not even renewed its license to do business in Minnesota since 02-19-2010.

    They certainly are not reported to have renewed by their renewal date of 12/31/2011 as posted on the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Business & Lien website.

    So how is DHS doing business with them?

    Yes…they shoot first and figure out their story later. Remember their reaction to a truck that they THOUGHT looked like the truck Chris Dorner was supposed to be in? They shot it 39 times, wounding one of the 2 women inside who were just doing their jobs delivering newspapers.

    It’s a miracle either of the women survived – http://cdn.ebaumsworld.com/mediaFiles/picture/2246447/83082912.jpg .

    The Department of Homeland Security (you know…the one that bought up over 1.6 BILLION bullets for use INSIDE the U.S.A.) has purchased over $3,000,000 from this company since 03-2010.

    They need to get rid of helmets. Helmets kill and injure people. If they didn’t have those helmets on, they couldn’t ram each other with them.

    Yep….helmets kill people. I say ban ‘em.

    Don’t worry about the asteroid. According to Jesse Jackson, assault weapons can blow up railroads, shoot down airplanes and shatter asteroids.

    Cutting $2 BILLION a year when you are losing $15 BILLION a year is a joke. Cut $16 BILLION and start turning enough profit to expand into new areas.

    The only things we should go into debt for are natural disaster relief and wars of defense.

    You can’t run your house like this….and you can’t run a government like this forever either.

    It’s time to DEMAND that D.C. get it’s **** together or go home.

    Not sure how well it works, but … http://www.instructables.com/id/Smart-Meter-radiation-shield/ .

    Can’t you just place a screen over the device on the outside of your house and hang a picture (with a screen backing) inside your house and essentially put the thing in a Faraday cage?

    This would block the majority of signals from it (though not all of the signals because your Faraday “cage” has a wall separating one of it’s walls – the wire screen behind your picture – from the other walls covering the device outside your home).

    This would not stop the device from working – only from sending out any harmful EMF that may hurt those with pacemakers and such.

    Since these meters transmit their data to the power companies over what appears to be frequencies similar to cell phone frequencies a Faraday Cage will block those signals. It does not require the cage to touch the meter in any way at all, so there should be no questions of tampering with the meter. It is impossible to tamper with the meter if one doesn’t touch it or transmit any data to it.

    To see how a faraday cage works, place a battery powered FM radio in a bird cage and close the door.

    It makes no sense to me why the power companies don’t simply place these devices on the telephone poles at the street, or buried at the road in the case of underground wiring, (keeping the farther from the homes of people and making tampering with them more difficult). That would seem to be a simple solution to the problem.

    Very disappointing crop this year (except for the Farmer ad and one or two others). It seems that the ad agencies are just trying too hard.

    It’s like watching a desperate guy try and get a date. It makes you sad and kinda queasy.

    What about the “face” seen from second 29 – 31? Pretty cool…

    How can it be “racist” to show an image of a brave, but not racist to name your team the Braves?

    2010 firearm deaths = 8,775 DUI deaths = 10,228 Ban alcohol and I’ll ban guns.

    Liberals cannot even wait for the dead children to be buried to begin their assault on guns and the 2nd Amendment. Although I think this is disrespectful, I do think we should have a conversation about gun control. I just think the conversation should be about facts and not clouded with emotional, knee-jerk reactions (which can admittedly be difficult in the midst of such unimaginable pain and grief).

    I am all for saving lives, but let’s start with the things that take the most lives first. Consider the factual numbers from 2009.

    Total homicides by firearm in 2009 – 9,146 http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/offenses/expanded_information/data/shrtable_08.html

    Total deaths caused by drunk driving in 2009 – 10,839 http://www.edgarsnyder.com/drunk-driving/drunk-driving-statistics.html

    Let’s look at the factual numbers for 2010

    Total homicides by firearm in 2010 – 8,775 (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/tables/10shrtbl09.xls)

    Total deaths caused by drunk driving in 2010 – 10,228 (http://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/impaired_driving/impaired-drv_factsheet.html)

    So, when you are ready to get serious about saving lives and ban alcohol, we’ll talk about banning guns.

    Seeing as how the writers of the Constitution “owned slaves, oppressed women and were short on tolerance”, we should also look at scrapping those pesky rights to free speech and religion.
