    Because bikers gangs do not have M1 Abrams tanks and other such hardware supplied courtesy of the Obama administration.

    It is sad that my 7 year old daughter is not allowed to tell one of her grandmothers that she has hunted with a rifle and has field dressed her kill and then cooked it with her dad. It is what I consider an accomplishment and something to be very proud of. She worked hard to prove she could be responsible and trusted. But Grandmas extreme left wing tendencies and her reaction to finding out there were guns in the house at all was enough to let me know she would be worse than any nanny type found in any playground.

    I was a kid in the 1970′s and a teen in the 1980′s. At the age of 10 my friends and I would ride our bikes about 5 miles to the pier at 3 am to go fishing without parental supervision. All the cops that would make a swing by the pier knew us and never had much to say except to know what was being caught and what bait we were using. The only thing to come out of it was occasionally a cop would come back after his shift with similar bait and join us.

    Come to think of it we had filet knives in our tackle boxes and some of us had buck knives on our belts (real buck knives not the crap they sell now.) Not only were we being neglected by todays standards were were also armed with dangerous weapons. Strange none of us were kidnapped, killed or even killed someone else. Sure we occasionally did stupid stuff and once we even broke the law by jumping from the railing of the pier into the water.

    The only thing that prevents me from giving the same freedoms to my kids is the threat of arrest and loosing my kids. Having strong libertarian viewpoints, a homestead property and certain issues with Government over-reach means I understand I am a prime person to “make an example of” I am angry that the thought should even enter my head and that in essence some if not much of my parenting choices are affected not by what I think is right and good but by what might happen if I am reported to the Government. 1 or 2

    you know maybe you should try trying to steer a vehicle on a dirt track and avoid hitting the moving target that is coming straight at you. you have a few options turn hard left which will likely cause you to lose traction starting you sliding to the right then you will have to try and put on the power to try and force the car back straight and attempt to go left again or turn right and try to regain traction or just sit there and do nothing. He was not fair game when he walked onto the track that much is clear, however the choice to walk onto a track wearing all black and proceed to walk straight at an oncoming vehicle on a track that is not known for having much traction was at best a very stupid idea some would say insane and suicidal.

    When those cars are entering a turn and moving at 80 MPH there is not much that can stop them at the point of entry to the turn the drive is not focused on the outside of the track he is looking at the Apex and the path to the Apex everything else is someone elses problem hence the reason for racing on a track and not in a residential neighborhood.

    It is sad for the family but if the kid did not take into account where a drivers focus would be coming up to a turn perhaps he should never have gotten into racing as he obviously did not understand how to drive fast.

    rule # 1 never get out of the car on the track unless it is on fire.
    rule # 2 if you got a problem with another driver save it for the pits.

    Man it is funny how a bunch of so called conservatives who claim to like facts and reason just fall to pieces and become emotional basket cases when something happens they do not like.

    I guess we are supposed to be a nation of laws when a president ignores them but we should go with the consensus when it is someone we like. We should hold truth to be the highest achievement except when it may harm our view of someone called a “Hero”.

    Some people thought Micheal Vic was a hero, sorry they were wrong. Hell I have a Bo Bergdahl yellow bracelet from 2010 damn was I wrong. Big f’ing deal pull your panties out of your crack and get over it.

    Ventura had a high hill to climb he had to prove that Kyle lied and he did it for profit or malice, he then had to prove that he was in fact damaged by it.

    This happened at a SEAL reunion and in a bar full of operators, people who are supposed to have a certain level of situational awareness and be able to provide a report of the events after the fact. the witnesses for Kyle were so inconsistent that they were considered unreliable at best and out right liars at the worst. Either way they discredited themselves. Let that sink in and stew for a bit.. they could not get their stories to jive with each other. and these are so called trained professionals.

    Sure Jesse is an ass, that is not the question. The question was did Kyle lie and did he profit from his lie at the expense of Ventura.

    While stopped going to walmart for anything I could get elsewhere (because they were part of the obamacare cheerleaders) the letter is still good.

    But there is still the issue of the use of red pen….I thought the teachers goons er union decided red pen can hurt the self esteem of the special little snowflakes?

    And everyone knows if you work for the New York Times odd are you a so special you need your own bus and helmet.

    A few years ago I wanted to teach my young daughters to fish so the plan was simple an ugly stick and Abu Garcia reels for both. Imagine my surprise when I discovered neither is made in America. Oh you can get a custom job from Shakespeare and Abu Garcia for about $1200.00 but a cheap well made rod and real for a kid not so much.

    Ultimately I hade to visit many secondhand, antique and pawn shops to find what as a kid I just grabbed at the bait shop. Fortunately I grew up in a time when fishing meant also knowing your gear we’ll enough to tune and repair it, something else the bait shop guy does not do anymore.

    They are called RUB’s rich urban bikers. And they routinely hear $15k and 15 miles does not make you a biker.

    Come now we have all seen the videos of a person laying prone on the ground while 6 or 7 thugs er uh I men police officers shout “Stop Resisting” and continue to pummel the person. Just because you are being pinned to the ground and repeatedly beaten and or gazed is no excuse for not doing whatever it is the cops want you to do….even if two or three are shouting contradictory orders.

    When I was a kid we used to go this park by the beach and have a picnic lunch on our way back the LA. In the 80s when the democrats decided the clinically insane had rights and you could not keep them institutionalized they took over the park I remember they would gather at the park and we would see and hear the insanity they spewed. Eventually we stopped going to the park. Now years later I see and hear a new group saying and doing the same exact things the clinically insane would say and do. They are the current elected officials in dc.

    @kickinback
    “Perhaps, this guy didn’t. According to him, the justice service did him well. I’m sorry, but without any kind of stats, I can’t take that for any kind of fact. Besides, there is already a mandatory rehab program throughout all the States..”

    Sounds like a cop out to me google recidivism rates. Here in Texas where we have what could be called a strict prison system the rate for drug offenders is about 48% in prisons and over 60% for local jails.

    http://www.lbb.state.tx.us/Public_Safety_Criminal_Justice/RecRev_Rates/Statewide%20Criminal%20Justice%20Recidivism%20and%20Revocation%20Rates2012.pdf

    Pretty much the same as most places but I am sure you already had a good idea about that. But by claiming without stats it isn’t true certainly explains why the DOJ no longer reports crime stats by socioeconomics or race and as such you can’t say a certain 4% segment of the US population is responsible for 85% of all violent crime. I assume it is better in the minds of many to just ignore the problem and pretend it does not exist rather than acknowledge it and do something about it. After all fixing the problem would destroy the economy by cutting funding for the industrial prison complex. All those out of work prison guards and all…

    Actually he manufactured drugs according to the article he did not “do” drugs. As for prison changing him you are mistakenly applying cause and effect. He may have been the kind of person that even when he was making drugs would have stopped for a baby. Also in the article he stated he made a conscientious effort to change not the prison made him change.

    Saying the kid survived because people were arrested because of drug use sounds very familiar…one could argue by the same logic thousands of kids yesterday were not shot and killed because of current restrictions on guns and therefore we should ban all guns. Or by the same logic I was raised by an alcoholic and now I have kids that I am very involved with and I do not drink or do drugs therefore the best way to help the next generation is to let alcoholics raise a lot of children.

    Maybe just maybe this is just a story of a guy who loves gospel and made some bad choices in life and now God, fate, gospel, and situational awareness all came together at just the right time and he made a difference.

    One thing I am sure of is prisons are not amazing places where a lot of people learn to make better choices as a result of being placed there and I did not have to go to prison to know that.

    hmm Feed them a meal and tell them your story…. I seem to remember a guy in the bible that did exactly that. Oh well must not have been important as so few seem to know who that guy was. [ /s ]

    You have to forgive them as most Americans think of poverty as people who drive escalades with more flat panel TV’s installed than they have in their whole house and people who they see in the check out with 2 or 3 carts overflowing with groceries paid for by a Government issued card.

    They have never seen a crowd gather at an accident to mop up spilled fuel with rags and pots to take home to burn for heat and light. They have never seen a village made entirely of discarded containers and pallets. They have never see the malnourished child get a dose of vitamin A that would blind an American child save the sight of an African child. And they certainly do not understand that most of the Aid flowing to these places come from private charity and not the Government.

    They do not understand that the background checks for private charity are mostly looking to weed out CIA operatives as they are a bigger threat than criminals and the reason the red cross is not welcome in many countries. I will never give to a charity that has ever had ties with the United Way. The Government taxes you more so you have less to give and charities suffer until they get involved with Government run funding sources..think about that level of control.

    Because in order to get the diploma you have to take a minority studies class, black studies being the most prevalent on campus. Why she would pay full price at UCSB to take the course when she could have gotten a more libertarian Black studies class at SBCC (santa barbara city college aka ledbetter tech or Harvard at the harbor) for 1/10th the price and still had it count for her degree is the real question.

    Sorry but unless her major is Black Studies” she is an idiot.

    Buy paying full price for the class should be an automatic fail.

    At least the kid has the guts to punch up and not down.

    PT 2 Especially in light of the fact that so many teddy bears are trapped in squalor doomed to a life of oppression and imprisonment by the vending machine cartels. Teddy bears who’s only hope is from a poorly designed metal claw (obviously a conspiracy between big Vending and Big gov’t). He alone stands as the freedom fighter they dream of. He alone understands the saddest thing ever is teddy bear tears. Shame on all of you.

    Can you not hear the Teddy bears cries for mercy?

  • April 16, 2014 at 9:24am

    PT 1

    There was a time when this story would nothing more than a funny story about a clever kid. Unfortunately in todays society where both the left wing and right wing nanny statist have to pass judgment on the mother/bowling alley owner and anyone else involved.

    Look kids are clever and quick a bad combo for any parent. I have come damn close to wetting myself trying to corral two small girls so I could get to the restroom.

    Walk a mile in someone shoes or at least try…after that you can return to your nanny ways, express who great your are but demeaning others you have never met and certainly do not know.

    Most of the time there IS a simple and non-nefarious answer to the problems and events of life. Most people are not evil, most people are just trying to get through life with as little friction as possible.

    Thanks to all of you know-it-all perfect in every way nanny’s this woman like many parents who find themselves in a public arena for so random act by their kids will spend the next few weeks in abject terror that some know-it-all nanny and CPS will decide that this transgression is a clear indication of neglect.

    I look at the picture of the kid and all I see is a healthy kid with a clever mind and a drive to get what he wants. He does not know yet of left or right wing politics and if he did he would likely call it childish.

    having an all electric house it gets even worse. I looked at the power requirements to keep up with the demand and for my 4 bedroom home a tankless electric requires a 150A draw. 3 240v 50 amp breakers. there goes 6 positions in my panel…oh wait only 5 free position so I would have to replace the panel. Oh wait only 150A rated service to the house gotta replace the drop to the house.

    Or I could scrap together the parts from craigslist and build a passive solar water heater to pre-heat the water going into the tank. incoming water can vary from 95 to 150 degrees but is sure keeps the water heater from running. mine even has a nice stained cabinet so it looks like a garden box. total parts cost $180 including the pex tool and pipe I needed. 4 hours build time and 2 hours install time. @ $50 and hours labor $480 total out the door. Far less money than a tankless. Power bill dropped $30 to $50 so on the long end about 16 months to ROI.

    Loads of videos on youtube on how to build a solar water heater. I have a tank in a hot box not one of the fancy vacuum tube designs. watch craiglist you can sometime pick up a new water heater for pennies on the dollar. and all you care about is the tank the rest gets cut off.

    FYI Depending on the weighting and metrics used Texas ranks between 11th and 31st in the nation for education. I would lean toward 11th, as Texas knows that unions should be handled with much the same methods one would use for disposing of other vermin. Cockroaches, rats, armadillos and teachers unions should all be smashed flat with a shovel or other implement then dumped in a can of shallow hole in the ground.

    you just do that, and tell us how well the FBI raid goes if of course they don’t have an accidental shooting and you cant tell us..

    but seriously the last guy that did that ended up as a democrat and the president.
