This reminded me of a hilarious Anime that I watched recently, Welcome to the N.H.K.. The story is about an unemployed recluse and conspiracy theorist who survives off of an allowance from his parents and food prepared for him by the girl that has a crush on him.
Towards the end of the story, the parents stop paying his bills and the girl has an emotional breakdown and stops bringing him food. Guess how this turns out?
The guy gets out and finds a job.

What’s so offensive?
At least it wasn’t addressed to “Unknown Oriental”. I hate being confused with a flavor of ramen.

Definitely this and I’ll bet that those school officials feared for their jobs too.
Another fine example, of how raising a little hell still gets things done in this country.

@kat747 Agreed. My best guess is that her parents forged her birth certificate when she was very little.
13 years of an exemplary record is a long time to just throw away, but I have respect for her for doing the right thing and stepping down. Hopefully she will go through the proper channels to gain citizenship and rejoin her precinct.

White genocide? I hope you ain’t Conservative of Libertarian, because you are in the wrong political party. Nixon never should have brought some of you idiots over. Go back to the slave owning, racist Democrats where you belong.
Unfortunately not everyone in our society is mentally stable. Many are just plain dumb (low IQs) That doesn't justify using deadly force. Pepper spray would have been effective.
Turn, once that 14 year old threw down his hat and attacked that officer all bets are off as to what is, and what is not, appropriate.
Item number 4 above is not correct. The officers don't have the right to ask where you have been or where you are going, or why you are traveling. The Government should be barred from these inquiries. Never the less each time I have been pulled over the officer asks there questions. I could understand if it is relevant, but in my case it never is.
@The_Jerk: All bets are not off when the 14 year old threw down his hat. He is not using deadly force, and according to my Air Force Military Training for Security Police Augmentee unless the officer is threatened with deadly force he/she cannot use deadly force. So if the 14 year old pointed a gun at the officer then sure the officer better have his gun out also.
I agree with all but #4. Don't ever admit anything to the police. Take it up with the judge if you disagree with the citation.
I have a little different take on being pulled over by the cops.
1. Pull over when it is safe to do so; i.e. witnesses.
2. Roll down your window just enough to interact with the cop.
3. Be respectful.
4. Don't admit to anything.
5. Let them know you are aware of your rights.
I would respectfully disagree with 3!
Keep your hands in view on the steering wheel till asked for info and if it's in the glove compartment ask for permission to retrieve it from there.
And if carrying make sure they acknowledge that fact before they are along side of you with where you have it
That sounds like "submit to your masters, heil".
George Washington should have followed your cowardly advice with the British, I suppose.
You are incredible, sheep.
I was taking my son back to his apartment near OSU so he could take an exam. He'd just wrecked his motorcycle and was on pain meds, and bandaged, but I'd never been to this apartment. He kept telling me to change lanes, then no, not yet, I was pulled over for going slow and weaving in and out of traffic.
AS I REACHED FOR MY PURSE TO GET MY LICENSE OUT BOTH TEENS IN MY CAR SHOUTED " NO DON'T, HE'LL THINK YOUR REACHING FOR A GUN" I discovered their more recent Driver's Ed had instructed 'NEVER GET LICENSE OR INSURANCE OUT UNTIL INSTRUCTED BY OFFICER, KEEP BOTH HANDS ON WHEEL UNTIL HE GIVES YOU PERMISSION TO LOOK FOR THEM!" This is TOTALLY so the officer won't think you're reaching for a gun. It could be a deadly mistake!!!
Agree with MilMom. Always keep hands in view. I would lock my doors, roll down the window half way And keep my hands on the wheel. Always be polite but do not admit to anything.
I tell my kids to stay still and quite.
This also results in being a sheeple! Look, if they pull me over for no good reason, they will not get respect. when they disrespect my rights, they will get no respect. When they trample my rights they get no respect! And considering some of the things we've been seeing coming out of NM lately, I don't think I'm going to comply with the police there, it might result in unconstitutional searches of my bodily cavities! NO THANKS I'LL PASS!!
@Wat… well said. I could not agree more. Amazes me sometimes, even here, how many people reflexively and blindly cleave toward external "authority"…
Kumo can keep his/her Bullsh** "instructions". I'll exercise common sense.
None of what you said is law. The cops are supposed to follow the law. There is no charge of not pulling over in a safe place, you do not have to roll your window down, you don't need to have your papers ready. Number 4 makes me wonder what country you're from. You don't have to show respect, and admitting guilt to a cop - I guess you think the bill of rights only consists of the 2nd amendment. Please don't make excuses for these cops. They deserve a public beating or worse.
Kumo, please stop being a dip sh!t. You think your open minded but your spitting out government propaganda like a brainwashed robot. Do yourself a favor and try questioning EVERYTHING with BOLDNESS... It feels good to think for yourself! :)
Unfortunately not ALL officers of the law take into consideration the following of your posted rules. I was pulled over for speeding and the first thing out of the officers mouth was "Do you think this is your own personal "f***ing" autobahn? License and registration and we'll put and end to this right now!" A few minutes later he returned to my car with a completely different attitude. " Sir is the address on your license correct? Is this a new car? So you're just trying it out a bit then? Okay sir slow it down and have a good day.." What was the difference? Turns out we lived in the same neighborhood. No ticket. If we had not been neighbors I am pretty sure he would have been trying to find a reason to haul my back side to jail..
on # 3 - you don't get that paperwork from the glove compartment until officer is next to window - if he sees you reaching for something when he approaches they assume it's a gun. You state " I'm getting the paperwork from my glove compartment" then do so
# 4 never admit guilt as you have just self incriminated - that's why they ask you "do you know why I pulled you over ?"
Yep! You got it

Agreed, there are some good eats to be gained from hunting. I’ve never had moose or zebra, but I bet they taste good. The thing that disturbed me was the killing of the Lion, I don’t think it is right to treat a fellow predator like that, especially when their numbers are dwindling each year.

I dropped out of high school in the 9th grade. This was nearly 20 years ago… yet I got the answer correct. It’s hard to believe that anyone enrolled at Harvard, Princeton or MIT would fail this simple word problem… Unless they didn’t bother to read the question carefully. Regardless if they did not have an idea before hand that it was a trick question, this seemingly simple problem should have been a big clue to dig a little deeper.
Despite my lack of formal education, I have scored a 131 on a professionally administered IQ test. I don’t have the information on me as to exactly which one it was, but I was informed that I perform in the superior range. Perhaps it might have been one of the Stanford-Binet tests.
My GED test results were a 99 in Science, 98 in Mathematics, 96 in Social Studies, 96 in Reading and an 83 in Writing. To my defense, my scores in Writing were low because I fudged on the 500 word essay portion of the test. I loathe writing unless it is a topic that interests me.
I also scored a 96 on my ASVAB at the local MEPS.
Not bad for a “dumb Paleoconservative”, lol!
Thanks BLAZE, you folks just totally boosted my ego. I am definitely interested now in seeing the average IQ of the students who attend these “prestigious” Universities.

I am certain that it is a made up story, some kids can be quite good at spinning a yarn.
I’ll bet the folks that built the home intended the secret crawlspace for stashing of valuables. Hide stuff that is not easily replaceable down there and you don’t have to worry so much about a thief taking them.
There could also be another secret entrance down there to something. Maybe a safe room, bunker or passage. When one secret entrance has the possibility of being discovered, it is wise to have another.
November 12, 2013 at 1:26pm
LOL, what decade are you from, the 1960′s? You Democrats need to drop the race stuff, it is all about political ideology these days.
It’s that “Kick butt, ask questions later mentality”. People are just not willing to drop a simple mistake. Pure idiocy.
Besides earning a very long jail sentence, one thing is for certain, that woman should also get a Darwin Award for her stupidity.

Regardless that he is a Neoconservative (Pro-interventionism and pro-corporation) I still think he would have been a vastly superior choice to the current failure of our President.
Since both men are LDS, I think he would have influenced Harry Reid to moderate his views, making legislation much easier to get from the House to the Oval Office.
I also believe that Boehner’s and Cruz’s efforts to defund the ACA would have gotten far more consideration under a Romney administration.

No Senility test needed, he’s still plenty sharp.
That dude reminds me of how many of the people of my Grandfather’s generation were down in Texas. They weren’t afraid to use humor in discussion as a tool to disarm the opponent. Look at her body language and how fidgety she gets. He won this debate.
I especially had a good laugh at his closing statement to Sebelius, “He’s going to use the gavel on me if you don’t hush.”

@redfish52 – You must be trolling… If not, I have a few choice words for you, listen closely…
True kindness of heart, does not need to be associated with a particular political bias or affiliation in order to be real.
Regardless if the guy was a Progressive Liberal, Neocon/RINO, Paleoconservative or Libertarian, he showed far more thought, patience, compassion and generosity than you did in your gaffe laden message.
October 25, 2013 at 4:22pm
I’d say she wrote one of the most epic troll messages of 2013. :)
I bet Morgan went absolutely livid, lol!
October 24, 2013 at 2:31pm
LOL! Scary isn’t it.
October 24, 2013 at 6:09am
Yup, hopefully this was a wake up call for him and he will kick the progressive politics to the curb and go back to his party’s Classical Liberal roots.
I’ve seen another Fox Liberal who seemed to wake up this year, Kirsten Powers. I agreed with her stances on protecting the 2nd amendment rights and staying out of Syria.
