how about the whole thing is complete nonsense. Global warming exists yes….but it is not caused by anything we mere humans are doing. As evidence…..I give you our exit from the last ice age…..how in the world did THAT happen without SUV’s belching the evil carbon monoxide? Just freaking stupid. But why should facts and common sense get in the way of trying to scare the hell out of people in order to advance your socialist agenda?

job or not I would have whipped that kid’s ass. Put your hands on me and you go to the hospital….in the infamous words of Johhny Paycheck, you can take the job and shove it…..
Self defense is allowed in any attack. Agree with you. I'd have beat that kid with a chair if I had to. I sock to his throat or temple would have stopped him in his tracks. This is what our world has become. How very, very sad.

um, couple of thoughts here. Apparently the dog’s owner did not exercise judgement nor due diligence in keeping the dog in their yard. Secondly, there is no such thing as a 200lb german shepard….calling BS on that. Thirdly, step inside the house and call animal control….no need to kill the dog unless he is between you and the house. Thirdly, my folks have had several german shepards…..none of which could possibly stop me from leaving the yard. I might get bitten but a lone dog will never be able to make me fear for my life. Calling bull on the two who killed the dog. Most likely just tired of it coming in their yard. That said, were the dog to go after my daughter…it would die instantly but I would shoot it with my sidearm not beat it to death. Family dog went after my toddler son 20 years ago….picked the dog up and threw it about 20′ then choked it for a few seconds. It never went after my son or me again. Tore up a few idiot utility guys who jumped the fence though…..good watchdog….she just needed to be taught some manners. She was a good family dog for several years after that day.

ok, for once I’m dumbfounded. I lived in Hot Springs for 4 years. My parents have a ranch right outside of Hot Springs. Their neighbor was a sheriff deputy prior to his death. Never have they seemed like the kind of department that would do some crap like this without some other reason. Most likely a lot we are not hearing…..example would be living conditions on the property. If this legal substance is really the reason given for this crap then I hope they sue the snot out of garland county and win.

maybe you could give some actual reports or stats to back up your claim. I live in Texas…..my weapon is only in my car when I’m at work. I do not spend my money at any business that won’t allow my gun to go in with me. PERIOD! Thus far the only places I’ve been with that issue is AMC theaters. State law prohibits carry in hospitals, schools, nursing homes and college or pro sports events and I avoid those too. When I must go in a hospital I carry a legal knife instead….
As for reciprocity…my concealed license is valid in most of the nation…..those places it is not will never see me cross their state line. No tourism bucks from me or my family. We saw my family last saturday at my sister’s house. My dad and son came down from Arkansas….their license allowed them to carry too and they were. Between them and my wife and I we had 5 pistols on us. What do you suppose would happen to the thug who tried a home invasion at that event??? I should add that I did not go in that theater….I tossed the ticket and never returned. Later I obtained cards from TSRA to give managers like that which state basically that as a CHL holder I have passed background checks, do not owe back taxes, do not owe child support, do not have a single mark on my criminal record, etc…..and then asks “what do you know about the rest of your customers?”
 January 5, 2015 at 5:26pm
then why do open carry states generally have lower crime stats and when was the last time you saw a headline about a guy openly carrying a weapon being attacked? That’s right….NEVER!
 January 5, 2015 at 5:24pm
hey dumbass…..under Texas law a pre-1899 black powder pistol is NOT considered a firearm and is perfectly legal to openly carry as is any type of long gun be it a rifle or shotgun as long as it is carried “in a manner not CALCULATED to cause alarm”. Meaning that if my weapon is holstered and is pre-1899 it is not legal for them to harass me much less arrest me.
If the cop saw a weapon or what he thought was a weapon and he had to stop what he was doing to check it out for his own safety, then the bozo was interfering with the cop performing his duties. Bozo should be in jail.
 January 5, 2015 at 5:16pm
Well, this is the kind of crap you get when you live in commie land like chicago. If I told cops I was going in anyway they would shrug and say whatever….but then I live in Texas. Years ago in Arkansas my neighbors house caught fire and I ran across to help. As I got to the garage that was burning the ammo he had in that corner started popping off and the fireman told me to get back. Told him like hell I will and I ran and grabbed a garden hose and and had an extinguisher. Neighbor got in his truck and moved it. Different world from communist occupied chicago. If I were on the jury I would vote to not convict.

um, actually Canada is part of the UK. While being a separate nation much like Ireland and Australia they are still under the crown of England.

What they are not telling is that the warrant was already issued by a judge and that the court gives the perp a chance to fix it before enforcing the warrant. My son is in this position now. There is nothing unconstitutional about it….the court is actually doing you a favor. Driving a car on public roads is a privilege not a right or they wouldn’t be able to force you to register or get a license in the first place. Secondly, being a pastor you are a terrible witness for the Lord you claim to serve by not being responsible and handling your business. My daughter was in ICU and almost died too….not one bill went unpaid, my son was taken care of too. I spent as much time at the hospital, my wife was there 24/7 but everything else got handled….including my own problems at the time registering my vehicles as we had just moved back to Texas and registering was about $600 per vehicle moving from out of state after fees and taxes and all. In short, there is no reason why you could not take care of your business. Lawsuit is a crock and will be dismissed. Twenty years ago the court would have just jailed your dumb ass and not sent to bill collector in the first place.
"Driving a car on public roads is a privilege not a right or they wouldn’t be able to force you to register or get a license in the first place. "
If that were the case then the taxes to fund it would be voluntary (not in the Harry Reid sense)
Freedom to move about is not a privilege. If you believe so then make a constitutional amendment and free the people from having to pay for other people's "privilege".
I would be interested to know what kind of church this man was a pastor of because if it was our church there would be much praying and collections to help them restore their home and this bill could have been paid in one collection. Perhaps they kept this to themselves and didn't tell them. That would be the only explanation I would hope for these church members.
No in this case the lawsuit isn't quite a crock.Third party collections for courts have a horrible track record.Across the board I might add.While this case isn't the one I would choose to make a stand on its part of a pattern.There are cases in multiple states against just this type of behavior.It actually complicates the collections drastically.Its much better if the local courts do their own collecting.
@sapper: Driving may be a privilege for you but for a free and independent person it is a right! I was "trolling for cops" back in the 90's (in California) to prove my point, so don't tell me that driving is a privilege.I proved that driving was a right many times. It's easy to do if you have the brains to understand the law.
If there is not a victim how can you be charged with a crime? No victim equals no crime.
How do you get your remedy? Ever hear of the "Writ of Habeas Corpus? That's your protection to travel from point A to Point B if you are a free person (without contract). Study up on it.
 December 30, 2014 at 9:08am
um, “gonna f$%(king kill you” gives me license to shoot your dumb ass in Texas. Both guys are morons. This is why I have my concealed carry license and carry at all times. Extra mags and back up pistol too. Not taking chances.
yep, race relations are better than ever since the POTUS came to office and altered the level of the seas and realigned the orbit of the planet to a more favorable one by his will and sparkling intellect and fund raising skills...i feel much safer knowing that only the government will have the means to protect us...all i have to do is wait and do nothing while my request for assistance is handled in the order in which it was received

God also commands us to be discerning and a good steward of what he has blessed us with. Sometimes I give money….sometimes I don’t. Depends on situation and what I perceive at the time. I once gave $20 to a family who was stranded because they came in from out of town and their car was towed. Had a little baby who needed formula. It was all I could give at the time as I was walking the three miles back to my own broke down car with parts from the nearest parts store I could find. It was obvious they were not begging nor had any nefarious intentions….just asked for help so they could feed the baby. What I get pissed about is the jerks who claim to be homeless vets on their cardboard sign. Three questions can usually weed them out and I haven’t met one yet that was an actual veteran. I did once give five bucks to a girl dressed nice that had a sign saying she was just out of school and needed help to pay the rent. I prefer honesty. If I don’t feel like God is telling me to give then I don’t. On the other hand we left a $50 tip for our regular waiter at the mexican restaurant for a $20 meal….because he works his ass off. I value hard work and honesty. I don’t like being duped by the shyster who is pulling down $600 a day begging and jumping in his caddy to go to his $300k house. And yes those types are well documented also. God wants us to be kind and compassionate but not stupid and careless with the blessings he gives us.
If you follow the bible, you won't have to worry if your getting scammed. The bible says, not to give to beggars on the street. It's a different story if they can come to your door. That a metaphor, but I'm sure you get it.
Again. " Beware you don't entertain angels unaware." Many long stories ; but , I fear someone wouldn't let me reveal . One has the intelligence to know where to give when one asks the Lord, like he is told to do by the Lord , in the Word. God always taps one on the shoulder with a prayerful life.
Jesus gave us specific instances in the Bible on giving to beggars - one included the rich man and the beggar where the rich man went to hell for not giving, and the beggar went to heaven. You are a liar.

well, I guess Ebola wasn’t enough to scare us into demanding marshal law so now they came up with a scary new virus. Makes it much worse not to give it a name you know. Libturds just never learn do they?
I think it odd
to call me out for my partisanship
after I respond to a post utilizing
the term "libturds"
Although I do applaud Mr. Sapper
for such a brilliant bon mot.
Kudos, sir, Kudos.
December 22, 2014 at 9:46am
absolutely correct. Would never jump in daylight nor anywhere near an enemy force.
December 22, 2014 at 9:38am
idiot civilians……enemy would never see this. First because we are not stupid enough to drop near the enemy who would be shooting our asses while still in the sky as the Germans did in WW2. Secondly, we would be dropping at night not daytime so that if there were enemy in the area that we somehow missed with our satellites, thermal imagery, and intelligence gathering….they won’t be able to see us…..because they don’t have all that nifty tech. It’s not like we actually do things the way they did in this video. And yes, I was a paratrooper…..
 December 11, 2014 at 2:22pm
um, it was a rifle…not a sidearm. You cannot legally open carry a pistol in Texas. You CAN, however, legally open carry a rifle if “carried in a manner not calculated to cause alarm”. It matters not that some idiot gets alarmed…..the key word in the law is CALCULATED. In other words it requires an obvious intent to cause alarm. If slung on your shoulder it is perfectly legal. If unloaded and no ammo on your person it is not legally a firearm in Texas either.
 December 11, 2014 at 2:15pm
um, two things…..carrying an AR-15 slung on your shoulder is perfectly legal in Houston. There is nothing stupid about it unless an officer chooses to actually stop and question the person carrying it. Perfectly legal to carry a long gun into stores, gas stations, etc. Unless they are specifically posting the legal signage that prohibits all firearms on their property which prevents carrying with a license also. Some folks are carrying their rifles to help desensitize dumbasses so they don’t freak out because someone actually exercises their rights. Secondly, the scripture you quote is taken out of context as usual.
Mathew 6:5 KJV “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the HYPOCRITES are; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”
Pretty obvious the point of this scripture is to not pray for the purpose of being seen praying.
Furthermore, we are told to gather together and pray for one another, to pray without ceasing……kind of difficult to accomplish if you have to run off to a closet in order to pray. You might try employing a bit of common sense and stop cherry picking scripture to fit your limited worldview.
December 5, 2014 at 1:53pm
This is no surprise to anyone living in Texas. Austin is the biggest bastion of liberal stupidity in the state. The cops in and around Austin are idiots and/or power tripping a$$#oles. I avoid the austin area like there is an ebola epidemic there. I hate Austin. That the police chief there would say something like this is no big shock.
 December 1, 2014 at 1:11pm
Did no one ever explain to these idiots that Christmas is derived from Christ Mass via the Catholic church and the whole point is a celebration of the birth of Christ and that without Christ there is NO Christmas. I suppose we could end Christmas altogether and go back to having a winter solstice celebration…..but then it would not be Christmas. Furthermore, I guess no one explained to these idiots that Santa Claus is latin for St. Nicholas who was a catholic bishop. Seems a bit ironic they have the girl writing to a bishop of the fairy tale religion asking to be released from the obligation to attend Christ’s Mass because the bishop’s religion is a fairy tale. Bunch of libturd morons….
Did anyone ever explain to you that Dec 25th and the winter solstice season in general has been celebrated by people long before your religion came along and usurped that day and its traditions? Until you find evidence Jesus was actually born on that day, you have no case ..
 November 26, 2014 at 4:05pm
As the father of a 10 year old girl I just have one question. Why isn’t every adult in that apartment except this father and his daughter dead? If that were my daughter there would only be corpses left for the police.
