The only control you can truly enforce is your own self control. If everyone was armed it would be as if nobody was armed. Normal and functional people snap everyday and kill somebody. Unless you are clairvoyant you cant stop anyone from commiting a violent crime.

Many year ago a man went crazy on the Staten Island ferry and slashed and killed over a dozen people with a machette heading into Manhattan during the morning commute. You can’t stop violence with laws, only reactionary violence from an armed off duty police officer stopped the machete attack. The only thing that stops violence is immediate reactionary violence. There were already laws in NYC that prohibitted carrying a machete at the time. You have the absolute right to life and self defense regardless of your mental health. Normal and functional people snap all the time, and kill with whatever is at hand. If everyone carried a weapon life would be just as dangerous if nobody carried a weapon

How did you arrive at that supposition, “there are probably more guns in the homes of this community than college degrees…”? The fault doesn’t lay with the gun , but with the irrate parent or relative who killed the van driver and a minor teen child bystander. It seems the responding police didnt arrest anyone at the scene. Hopefully the police will eeventually check to see if any of the toddler’s relatives were in the area at the time with a gun. An autopsy should reveal the caliber of the bullets that killed the two victims at the scene. The father and any other relatives of the toddler killed by the van that were present should have been tested on spot for any gun powder residue, and a warrant should have been obtained at the scene to search the parents property for any firearms, noted the calibers, checking on the spot for any recently discharged weapons and seizing those weapons temporarily until it could be determined which weapons were actually used in the murders.

You can predict anything including the weather, getting it right is an art. Some years are hot and some years are cold. The thermometer was only invented less than 150 years ago and calibration is difficult at best. I have 4 thermometers at my house and they all say something different every second of the day. I check thermometer in town at the firehouse , they post it on the net, and it reads something different still. One degree change in a century is impossible to varify. One degree is nearly impossible for a person to feel.

That big orange spinning ball of hot burning hydrogen gas effects the climate here on Earth? There is no way! My breathing is the cause of climate change and global warming which mean nearly the same thing. Is that the associated press’s stance ? It’s hard to believe they are the prime souce of news worldwide. The inmates are finally running the asylum.

Could it have been a glitch in the drones camera or a processing disparity between the camera on the drone and the software reading the image from the chip in the drone. It doesnt seem like a hoax because if you blink literally miss it and hoaxes have some dramatic component to lead the viewer to think “aliens”. Otherwise its a lens artifact.

So many times I hear conservative punditz goo on about how inept this white house administration is . The saying about a broken clock being right at least twice a day should be evidence enough that if these were just rank amatures or even mentally challenged people that managed to win two presidential elections in a row, they would have got at least one thing right or been on the side of ‘good’ at least once in 6years, but no. While the administration works a deal that all but hands world threatening nuclear weaponry to some of the most evil anti Jewish anti Israeli people on Earth, they have sent operatives and funneled money to undermine Israeli elections to unseat Netanyahu and give Israel to pro Palestinian elements in the parliament. At the very least a broken clock gets the time right twice a day. Obama successfully has brought about the Caliphate of Muslim countries by deliberately creating power vacuums throughout the middleast. Now doing its best to destroy Israel and eventually subjating The United States of America to sharia law and the Muslim crazies. Stop thinking its because they are just inept pacifists that blunder around governing poorly.

I think your berka may be too tight.

Outlaw you sound like a fervent antisemite to me, “globalist money changer”, is that a lender of money that operates worldwide? And calling Israel “an aggressive socialist country” is a ridiculous and incendiary comment only a true Obama-phille could make, yet if I were in the name calling and labeling business I would accuse the Obama white house of being the real socalist aggressors and corrupt globalist money changers. The freedom to speak and believe what you wish has eroded greatly under the Obama administration like under no other administration, and likewise U.S. currency has been manipulated to its detriment and to the advantage of Obama and his supporters in a manner so overtly criminal it makes congress voting their own pay increases and benefits anemic in comparison. I could care less if the president fires the culprit of the insult , or not. However I think we should all know their name and face while the white house stands behind them.

Probably he already puts nasty stuff in the food, regardless of who orders. He deserves a visit from a health inspector. Pretty sure if he doesn’t have good manners he wont have good hygene.

I never heard of a Jewish salad before. Greek and Caesar, chicken perhaps, but I would like to name a salad after you. But who would order a ‘stupid bigot salad’?

Just don’t ask for the Clinton Dressing, way too salty.

The Jewish people do not claim the ‘word’ genocide as their own, but they have been targeted by many countries now and in the past to put an end to all Jewish people starting with the ones the Jews they were able to kill. Genocide means to exterminate an entire race, religion or nation.
I say bring it, because I know how I would respond to an attempted beheading in my area. The cowards grab the unarmed and restrain them to behead. They are pure cowards that will only go for the meek or helpless. Even if I just have a pen I would jam it in their cowardly necks and go down fighting.

A better muffler would go a long way to quieting down noisy deasile engines, and they already exist. All late model semi trucks are equipped with them. The toxic heavy metals from these batteries cost more to deal with in disposal when they fail to hold a charge , which is happens 100% of the time within a 1000 recharges. Additionally the energy consumed in the manufacturing of these rechargeables far outweighs any energy savings from use alone. The run of the mill prius battery makes 3 journeys across the pacific before it ever runs a car. These rechargeable batteries often catch fire and explode a make a mess that only a hazmat team could love.

Forget Mars unless you can make artifical gravity and shield the astronauts from intense gamma radiation. Minimally Mars is a 3 year round trip, sending the astronauts with everything they need to live, and the government is 17 trillion in debt. Goodluck with your timetable.

Served to you by cranky flight attendants, and if you complain the pilot will make and unscheduled landing.
