parents and close friends can usually tell the difference between identical twins.
but once you get beyond that inner circle in many cases you can pretend to be the other.
and the identical twins i know, male and female have… well except for my 2 year old nieces… and i’m sure for them it’s just a matter of time.
sad news that someone with more to live for than he believed gave up on himself and the world.

i agree entirely.
BUT while i was a dedicated BMA/ GDI in college, did the entire fraternity spit? I’ve never seen an association drool, much less spit.
i would much rather the specific guilty parties be held to account.
suspensions tend to be lifted once scrutiny moves on to the next outrage, and if the ‘one did it they are all guilty’ applies to the frat, why not the entire school administration who apparently has not done a better job of teaching the students better…
Yes. Accept the personal responsibility of their nasty little actions. Let them finally stand on their own two feet and feel the heat as they take whatever punishment there can be.
A huge part of the problem lies within the individual University. They claim to be molding young leaders and doers. Really? No values or morals. Away from Mon and Dad. Let's party. Universities preach diversity and tolerance and little else. If these kids don’t have basic moral values instilled within them before they hit the campus, the battle is lost. The educated idiots within the Ivory Tower are too stupid to recognize such an issue when they see it. One of my daughters goes to college and the Admin puts on a seminar for the parents of incoming freshmen. The President spoke to the assembled group of anxious parents. The one point that he stressed was to encourage our kids acceptance of “diversity”. He made the statement in his speech that if it was his choice he would change the name of the institution from XXXX University to XXXX Diversity. Really? Party On!

So POTUS feels no concern over an agreement he signed that Hillary now claims allowed her foreign profit machine to be ‘legal?’
and yet they want us to trust anything they sign with Iran?
the fallout on this should wake people up as to who heads the nation and who wants to head the nation… but i’m not holding my breath.
Unfortunately the people who should be waking up and revolting are the uninformed, uncommitted citizens of America who don't read the news or choose to give two $!&?'s about the criminality of our government. Hard to have a wake up call when people don't listen or unwilling to revolt.

So… the THOUSANDS they or their parents pay for their education do not allow them to use the facility to voice their opinion….
‘off to the first amendment zone with you… (unless you have a flag to desecrate)
I could think of a number of flags to desecrate. isis, iraq, the old soviet flag, russia's current flag, and so on.
Just not Old Glory. I would fly her high and proud.
I wonder how many leftists would be pissed off about me doing so.

Jeffrey Deaver once wrote ‘a kidnapping is a murder in progress’
ie, this was NOT the fault of American drone forces, but of al qaeda.
sadly, though POTUS is using this to further erode trust in our military and intelligence services.
i’m looking forward to the time a drone outfitted like an A10 ‘Brrrrt’s’ daesh as they prepare to kill another group of Christians… guess we’ll have to wait for another president for that to happen.
 April 23, 2015 at 11:34pm
Shhh… can’t have the progressives facing the fact that the big killers in the last century were atheists…. doesn’t square with their deeply helf and as deeply flawed belielfs, intenvisely taught by a public educator.
Actually, I was embarrassed that while i knew there had been a genocide, I did not know when or why.
And given our only real modern exposure to ‘Armenians’ are the Kartrashians I had assumed maybe the entire people almost deserved it (jk)
 April 22, 2015 at 7:37pm
True, but when politicians waste our tax dollars propping up such junk conclusions and pushing untested ‘solutions’ it means easy grant money.
 April 22, 2015 at 7:32pm
As usual Cavallo is right.
And right leaning actors get work because they DON’T make politics an issue.
And they shouldn’t, either way.
Pretending to be other people does not qualify them to speak about political issues more knowledgably than John q public.

I try to learn something new each day.
And find my second language used at work with growing frequency.
Your stereotype suggests why you fear gun owners… If you were the gun owner you would be using it to guarantee your way… Funny that isn’t how law abiding gun owners act.. And that applies to politics as well… When it was theoretical abuses of power the fourth estate and a Democratic a Congress screamed ‘unAmerican’ at the last president… When POTUS endorses spying on everyone and disc the IRS on political opposition, it is tacitly condoned.
Put simply, you fear we would respond to you as a caveman the way you expect you would act in that situation, so you must act out against it.
 April 19, 2015 at 2:26am
Ditto, Hope. I know I’m not always right… You and rabid patriot both gave me food for thought on this story.

Feral cats can be a problem, though the. Cat in the image looks… Cared for.
Weird choice to post it, but if it is within the law, charging her merely because some touchy-feely whiners are complaining is not how this is supposed to work.
There are feral cats up here in Montana that look like they live high on the hog. Especially this time of year when the gophers are up and about. And in this area of Montana, in the winter, it gets to -40 without windchill.
Cats should be an indoor pet, if left outdoors they should be monitored by the owner. Ferrel cats can be taken by hunters in many states since the cats kill many games birds and song birds (pheasants,quail, blue birds ect.)..
Go ahead shoot my cat then brag about it and see what happens, there are humane ways of removing feral cats i trapped and turned over to the humane society a dozen or more in a town i used to live in, the ones with collars i released the rest spent a short time at the humane soc. then were put down.
But she's a vet & not a very smart one to post such a thing on Facebook. What does she do with other animals in her care? Most hunters kill for food. They don't just kill something and take a picture of themselves delighting in it. It's a fact that many serial killers start with animals. I swat houseflies and have used mousetraps but even then, I don't delight in death.
About a month ago someone dumped a quite vicious feral tomcat in the neighborhood I live in in rural SW Texas. It killed several kittens belonging to the family across the way, and attacked one of my landlords' barn cats. I had noticed Panther had a nasty wound on his head, and when I was checking him out to see if he had other wounds, touched a sore spot and he bit me pretty bad. Called the landlord, who is also a vet and she brought home a long-acting antibiotic shot to give him. He damn near died. He was so sick for awhile he would not get off his bed and I had to take him his food and water. Finally recovered. I was told just about everyone in the neighborhood was gunning for the feral tomcat, and someone finally killed it. Not only had he nearly killed Panther, killed those kittens, some of the neighbors have small children and they were afraid the cat might attack their little kids. I don't like the idea of killing animals unnecessarily, but even I could understand that cat had to go. And we do not have animal control out here, we ARE animal control. And anyone who tried to catch that cat was going to get hurt. It is really easy for folks who live in the city to talk about calling animal control and/or to bring animals like that out to the countryside to dump them so they don't have to kill them themselves. It really is just plain not that simple.

Trading places… Had a gun.
Ghostbusters… Had an untested nuclear particle Ray gun.
Spies like us… Had a gun.
Unnamed John Cusack spy movie? Guns galore.
Sorry, Danny, nobody said you have to own carry understand handle or like a gun.
But respect the natural rights that created this nation and have let him earn a healthy living.
Gross Pointe Blank is what I think your referring to. He was a hitman.
Right they are ALL hypocrites, just like Liam Nealson all the "Taken" movies and the two other movies he just came out with. Oh let's not forget Sean Penn who had worn out 4 sets of knee pads over at Hugo Chavez house and rabid anti-gunner just did a movie as an ex Seal. I'll bet the "reason" he was a reserve deputy is he could carry concealed.
Bravo!! Well said!

repeal, they did not charge anyone with theft.
your argument would extrapolate to ‘they can beat their child because it’s theirs… if she took it for its protection it would be kidnapping’
in fact, they wanted a confrontation, and when she picked up the gauntlet… er the flag, they got more than they bargained for as she exercised HER first amendment rights, as well.
and she knows the repercussions of first amendment exercise, since her decision to pose in Playboy led to her being demoted.
The State of Georgia prohibits anyone from mutilating, defacing, defiling, or abusing contemptuously the U.S. flag, the Florida state flag or the flag of the Confederate States of America. The law also forbids the use of such flags for advertising or publicity purposes. [Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 50-3-8 and 50-3-9]
The Georgia law is simply not 'enforceable' due to constitutional decisions on what 1st Amendment protects.
Federal law trumps state law when it comes to constitutional matters via the Supremency Clause. The Surpreme Court already decided on this matter years ago, when it comes to flag desecration.
According to the Supremacy Clause (Article VI, clause 2) of the United States Constitution,
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
The only way to actually change it would either to have new supreme court judges decide on it and change the ‘interpretation’ (this would fall under ‘activist judges’, not necessarily a good thing), or a flag amendment added to the constitution as a special clause.

if you get a chance, the documentary ‘It Might Get Loud’ is worth the time to watch.
I suspect White and I have different politics, but less so than Nancy P or Sebelius or Reid and I… i would go to dinner to find out without a second thought. ‘You Don’t Know What Love Is’ and ‘Effect and Cause’ would play on the drive there…
that said, the whole ‘fainting for __________’ be it Elvis, the Beatles, or someone now I have never understood. And I cannot imagine standing in line for a record. But I’m glad people whose passions are fueled that way were able to get something they will remember and enjoy

schools and child protective agencies everywhere represent great bastions for left leaning thought, even in those states that have rejected big government thinking.
the interaction of government and sheeple in this realm and in Kansas? I heard from a patient of a man being forced to provide child support… he and a buddy were double ‘dating’ and they had money for only one condom. He and his ‘date’ went first, and then the other couple turned the condom inside out and used it for the encore… you guessed it, the second woman became pregnant. and instead of taking the child given the demonstrated terminal stupidity of both ‘parents’ the man is on the hook for a child conceived without intercourse for 18 years…

perfect… the exercise of free speech is not protected from the consequences of that speech.
 April 18, 2015 at 4:28pm
pizza, actually i agree with you.
but i also agree that Ms. Manhart’s nonviolent response to their exercise of free speech, as a direct response to their claims, is ALSO protected as free speech. She did not try to run away with the flag to keep as her own or sell it (theft), she merely stood her ground and argued against their claims.
Both parties should have been (and essentially were) given room to air their positions. Instead of using banners or just their voices, the inclusion of a ‘prop’ made it easier for a dissenting voice to be heard.
in a public forum they threw the flag down and were marching on it.
she stepped in and picked it up for its protection and countered the claims they were making.
i agree with you about 1A protecting their right to assemble and protest, no matter how stupid their claims.
but that does not protect them against the consequences of their actions, and her protecting the flag and countering their claims is as much a free speech.
and honestly they were hoping for just such a confrontation. and it did not stop the demonstration, their refusal to provide ID on school property when asked by duly appointed authorities did. Ms. Manhart did not rely on government, she stood up for what she believed… what she trained to fight for. and she CLEARLY has an understanding of first amendment freedoms and the limitations there of. She knows the government is NOT always right. This was standing up for principle.
and sometimes that means facing arrest. so i am glad that no one was hurt, and that she has not been charged. and i hope that one or two of the passive sheeple watching this paused and thought about what lies were being told by those trampling the flag.
 April 18, 2015 at 4:19pm
honestly my first thought in considering the ‘ownership’ of the flag was how they got the flag… would not have put it past people willing to desecrate the flag to lift one from a building’s flag pole rather than buying it themselves.
and if the police can surround a woman’s home and deny entry while awaiting a warrant, holding the flag while awaiting proof of ownership would seem an easy step.
free speech does not apply to shouting fire in a crowded theater. and i don’t suggest this reaches that level. i would argue the group doing this HOPED to get a reaction. she was not by report violent toward them, and so in a public forum, RP, would you argue in her defense her action was merely a response to their statement, and so was also protected by 1A?
