    direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. (Article 1, Section 2 United States Constitution).

    The only fair tax is the one described by the founding fathers where the feds tax the states and the states decide how to tax their citizens. Repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the IRS and make the treasury department resume their responsibility for managing the nation’s taxes.

    got to add that second mistake is carrying a .22, I mean really….who the hell does that? I have a .45 with hollow points. Bad guy will not live through an encounter with me.

    the mistake is not open carry…..the mistake is letting some a hole get close to you in the first place. As soon as he approached my hand would be on pistol and ready to fire. If he began pulling his gun I would blast him. THAT’s why I carry a gun DUH!

    Doesn’t matter if open or concealed….if you are not going to open fire then leave it at home.

    ok, so good for him. Nice to know if I’m ever in california. I don’t eat wheat….I’ve also never once asked for any special treatment. I know what I can eat and not and I order accordingly. It boggles my mind that anyone would ask jack in the box to use gluten free buns. Or a chinese restaurant to not use MSG. Who cares. If I go to sonic…I automatically know that the only food I can eat there is tater tots. Can have milkshakes and ice cream too but of their actual food tater tots and fries are the only things without wheat in them. So I just don’t go to sonic much. Only thing I can eat at subway is their salad….so I don’t eat there. I still take my family but I don’t order anything. Can’t have meatloaf, gravy, anything with bread or pasta, etc. but I can have steak and baked potato, grilled chicken, and all the fruit and veggies I can stuff in my mouth. Point is…..if you have a condition….figure it out for yourself dumbass…don’t try to force a business to cater to you.

    When I was growing up I was disciplined almost daily with a willow switch. My ass was almost always bloody with welts. When I got a bit older….like 9 or 10 I had to go get it myself. At 12 I was so bad my dad would use two switches….when the first one got too short he’d pull out the second one and wear that one out on me. I went to school with welts all up and down my back, **** and legs. Back then it was considered to be no one elses business how a parent raised their kids. I have to say too that I wasn’t scarred for life and I deserved every one of them except for one time when the neighbor kids lied to get me in trouble. But like dad said, I probably deserved it for something he didn’t catch me at…and he was right. Personally I have never used anything but my hand for spanking. My son only got two or three of those and my daughter only needed one time as a toddler. That said, I would have to know the extent of the punishment to make a judgement on this….did he use the switch 20 or 30 times? What kind of switch? What damage was done, etc. because there is a huge difference between leaving welts and causing internal injuries that could be life threatening. A little pain and some welts are very instructive for a wayward child. Got to say too that I have no scars from my spankings. Just some bad memories.

    I despise obutthead as much as anyone but he has 60 days to wage any damned thing he wants with the military overseas and needs no congressional approval. At that point though he must get approval from congress to continue operations. The war powers act was passed so that the president could respond to threats quickly instead of having to wait on congress. The 48 hour notice is so that congress can begin debate and come to a resolution within the 60 day time frame. Prior to that act there was no requirement at all for the president to notify congress or seek approval to use the military and I don’t think there should be one now. Using the military does not require a declaration of war. Congress has not declared war since WW2, yet we had Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, Enduring freedom and all without any declaration of war. A formal declaration of war activates certain things that neither congress nor the president usually want activated. Most are financial but there are other war powers that congress usually doesn’t want a president to have hence authorization for military force in lieu of a declaration. In my opinion it’s all unconstitutional but only congress or the president could sue for it and force the supreme court to rule on the subject and that probably will never happen.

    great point! Thank you.

  • [7] September 9, 2014 at 5:56pm

    thank you, I was beginning to think I was the only one left who thought that….

    another happy ending. Yay!

    really? My wife and I play wrestle on occasion and she is pretty darned strong for a woman but there is no way she could lay a hand on me if I simply block. Aside from a woman attacking with a weapon I see no reason at all to have to hit a woman. My ex wife once threatened me with a knife. I grabbed her wrist and took it away……at which point she threatened to call the police and claim I abused her because it left a slight bruise on her wrist so I get what you’re saying but I still didn’t hit her. There was no need. I told her go ahead and call them and we’ll see who goes to jail. Wasn’t long after that we divorced. That was 22 years ago. Been married 19 years this time because I found a woman 180 degrees opposite of my ex. :)

    takes little to weaken a man’s ego? Really? You must only know weak men.

    Exactly momrules and by the way grover…..a phobia is an irrational fear of something. We don’t fear homosexuals we just despise the manner that they flaunt it and the means they use to further their agenda. Not all, I don’t mean to generalize. I’ve known a lot of homosexuals that are normal, decent folks that I don’t agree with what they do but I don’t feel any different about them than any adulterer. Loving homosexual people as Christ would love them does not mean that we have to accept or condone their behavior. Many years ago in Arkansas the homosexual nazis held a gay pride parade in which they waltzed down the main street in a small town wearing nothing but chaps, simulating sex acts and handing out DVD’s of homosexual porn to children. Those are the homosexuals we despise. It’s not a fear of them but rather a loathing. That said I have just as much animosity for heterosexuals that act that way too. It has nothing to do with their choice of who to have sex with and everything to do with flaunting their immorality in public forcing me to have to explain to my ten year old what the hell is going on and I vehemently despise their assault on the institution of marriage. Civil unions do exactly the same thing without us having to recognize their “marriage”. Marriage is a covenant between my wife and I and God. Marriage has been around a lot longer than our civil law and is a God ordained contract that humans have bastardized by making it human law.

    really? I had no idea Romney was pro-homosexual.

  • [4] September 9, 2014 at 5:07pm

    they are both.

    insulting is by definition PC. Insulting was her stock in trade and what made her a famous comedian much the same as Don Rickles. Wouldn’t expect anything less from Joan. Besides when you hit 80 who the hell cares if someone doesn’t like you anymore.

    notice to teenage thugs…..I carry a pistol and sixteen rounds of ammo. I will shoot your ass down if you try this with me. Of course I’m 6ft-1in tall and 250lbs and wear a combat veteran hat so you cowards wouldn’t try this with me anyway. Just fair warning…not everyone is going to be a victim.

    christian themed films have done pretty well lately actually. Noah, God’s not Dead. The only reason this one didn’t is because lack of advertising. I never heard of it but I’m going to go see it now that I know about it.
