    Yep, land mines are cheap and highly effective at stopping untrained personal from crossing a protected zone. Not a politically correct thing to say but sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade.

    It’s good the uncle intervened. Sometimes tough love it what a kid needs to straighten him/her out.

    In our case, there was no police involvement. There was just dad. He was the iron fist. Many times I thought I hated him growing up. But today I thank him for that tough love. I think that is what is lacking in a lot of households today.

    I never hit my elders or my parents. It never got that far. Worst thing I ever did was call my mother a b**** once when I was around 8 or 9. My father was a truck driver at that time and I thought since he was gone on the road I could get away with it. He made a special trip home just for me. Next day I came home from school and he was sitting there waiting. Oh my. That was the only time I ever got the belt. And it was the last time I ever called my mother a bad name. lol

    I go back and forth on this. On one hand I can see North Korea doing this because… well …it’s North Korea. They are a bunch of brainwashed nut-jobs over there.

    But then again, I think to myself why? They already have near total control of their population. They control what media flows in and out of the country so why would they care about a stupid movie made across the ocean. It’s not like their citizens are going to get to see it anyways.

    Personally, I think the charge is flimsy. It almost kind of smells like they are laying the groundwork to justify a strike on the country and cancel the 1953 ceasefire.

    Holy cow! My late grandmother commanded, deserved, and received total respect the moment you entered the room with her. Hats off, shirts tucked in, shoes off (in her house), yes/no ma’am, and you never even thought, let alone actually said, a cuss word in her presence. All that and she was still the sweetest little old lady you would probably ever meet.

    How the heck does anyone even think about slapping their grandmother? People these days… I tell ya.

    You know what is funnier than winning an argument with a liberal? Watching two liberals eat each other (figuratively speaking) over something so stupid. I think I need some popcorn for this one.

    I like Matt Walsh and I tend to agree with him more than I disagree. But in this instance I have to point out that I think what makes your marriage work is what works for you. Each of us, who are married, can only really speak for our own situations. Yeah we can throw out statistics and study data, but it still just comes down to what works in your marriage.

    I am married. I’ve been married for over 10 years now. We own our home, our vehicles, have a kid, and run a small business. I also play video games, so does she, so does our child. What works for us, may not work for you. In our case we are both fiercely independent, somewhat type-A personalities, so space is just as important to use as spending time together. It’s what keeps our spark alive. She has her career and her hobbies. I have mine. Yes, we make sure we spend quality family time together and with our son. We make sure to communicate our wants and needs with one another as well. We are open and honest with one another. We never call each other names or directly insult one another even when having a disagreement. We each have our own responsibilities around the house, so to speak, but we are not afraid to help each other out too.

    The point is, in my opinion, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to marriage. You just need to figure out what works for you.

    lol @ arctic penguin – that’s good!

    I have to add a “however” to my above post. (kind of a thinking out loud kind of “however”) Upon looking at this closer I noticed that he changed his profile tag (in the URL) to “/Tacticalfirearms”. That’s kind of a gray area if you ask me because you can choose your profile tag and change your profile name. He really screwed up when he merged the two. Technically you CAN change the profile from a personal name to say it’s a business… but that would violate FB rules of personal profiles and it would be deleted/banned.

    Perhaps the judge and parties involved are mistaken or confused, what they are really fighting over is the unique tag in the URL, the “/Tacticalfirearms”. If that is the case then all he really needs to do is reset his personal profile and choose a new URL tag. (I think that can be done)

    Then, problem solved, it’s no longer associated with the business and it is his personal profile again. I know it sounds like I am making it harder than it needs to be but there is a reason, which I’m sure you know, FB does it this way.

    There seems to be some confusion here. The dispute is not over a Facebook business page. It’s over a personal profile page of the (former) business owner Jeremy Alcede. Yes, there is a difference. The biggest difference is that profiles are real people, pages (business and non-business) are set up using the personal profile account. Facebook forbids the creation of any profile that is not a real person. So if you create a profile with your business name that account will be banned. To know the difference between the two you have to understand that you ‘friend’ people (profiles) and you ‘like’ pages. You cannot ‘friend’ a page.

    Why does this matter? Because Facebook allows you to change ownership of pages, business and non-business pages, but not personal profiles. Furthermore, I believe it is against their rules to give ownership of a personal page to another person because that new person who takes it over is then impersonating someone they are not. But that may have changed since the last time I looked at the rules on this.

    Regardless if this man posted business related information on his personal page or not, it’s still a personal profile and not a business page. (for the record, I have a personal profile on FB and I used that to set up a page for my business, I can transfer ownership of the business page to any person with a FB profile, but I cannot transfer my personal profile to another)

    But it’s not a business page. It’s a personal profile.

  • [9] December 18, 2014 at 10:12pm

    The reason I post the difference is because it’s not as simple as creating a new page. Not only that but he shouldn’t have to turn it over since it’s a personal page, even if he discussed business there. I also believe it is against FB rules to transfer a personal profile to another person. But they may have changed that.

  • [6] December 18, 2014 at 10:07pm

    It’s not a business page, it’s a personal profile. There is a difference. Our business is on FB and I can tell you that FB forbids the creation of profiles unless it is a real person. (which the link in this article goes to) The FB business/non-business page is different in several ways but the most notable difference is that you cannot ‘friend’ a page. You can subscribe and ‘like’ it.

    I AM ROYALTY. Thou shall not asketh me for help. Bow before me you worthless curs.

    That is the impression I get when MO says the lady didn’t recognize her. Seriously lady? Like there aren’t 10 other women that resemble you somewhere in the world. Besides, what are the chances of an average citizen running into royalty, ergh I mean the first lady, at a local Target store? Most people would just shrug it off and think, “hey that looks like so and so but it can’t be because they have servants to run those errands” or something like that.

    Good grief woman… not everything is about race.

    You beat me to it. ;) This story is horrible and I’m glad they got out but I instantly thought of the Blondestar video when I read the title.

    DC makes sense – they are spending the entire countries money so why not have a blast eh?

    I stood in solidarity with the GOP over McCain and Romney… both against my better judgement. Never again. I’ll write in Santa Clause before I vote for a RINO like Jeb Bush. My vote is only one tiny little vote, but it’s my vote to cast.

    Theft.

    We would go to jail for it. A judge and city employee can instigate it and uphold it and they go on with their daily lives. This is wrong on so many levels.

    “The individual human being does not belong to himself, but to society, to the human race. The individual can only live and thrive owing to the existence of society. The child, therefore, belongs to the society in which it lives, and thanks to which it came into being – and this society is something wider than the ‘society’ of its own parents. To society, likewise, belongs the primary and basic right of educating children. From this point of view, the parents’ claim to bring up their own children and thereby to impress upon the children’s psychology their own limitations, must not merely be rejected, but must be absolutely laughed out of court.” N.I. Bukharin and E. Preobrazhensky: The ABC of Communism – Chapter 10, Communism & Education – § 79. Preparation for school life

    ——————————————————-

    What these people tried to do here, and try to do every day all across the nation, is implement communism. The whole “it takes a village to raise a child” is communism. I often wonder how many people really realize that. Oh don’t get me wrong, I know some folks get it. But you should see the shocked looks on everyday, average citizens faces when you cite things like this to them when they spout off the whole “it takes a village” tagline.

    This whole Cosby ordeal reminds me a lot of Michael Jackson. If one person came forward and accuses a person of this then I am skeptical, I say give it it’s day in court where both sides can argue it out. Two and I pause. Three or more and I’m sorry… but that doesn’t look good. It doesn’t look like the accused is innocent. I don’t agree with trying someone in the realm of public opinion on the nightly news, but in my opinion there are just too many coincidences for these to be false claims. Stick a fork in the man cause he’s done.

    True. But no bumper to bumper traffic. ;)
