    I’m conflicted over this one to be honest. I support our veterans 100%. I would also like to see this man keep his home and his service animal. I’m also an animal person myself. We have 2 cats and 2 dogs around our home. But we own our home.

    Did the man sign a lease? Was the pet policy spelled out prior to him moving in? The article doesn’t say. If it was in his lease agreement that no pets were allowed then, I’m sorry, the landlord is correct on this. It stinks and I think the landlord should make an exception on this one… but it’s his choice.

    Now, if the man didn’t sign a lease and the pet policy was not put in writing prior to him moving in? That’s a whole other story and I would say the man has a strong case to win.

    No one has to “listen to Jews” to find out what to think about Muslims. All one has to do is open a history book, flip on the nightly news, go on social media to read their own words, or do your own research online and we see what Muslims are doing on a daily basis in the name of their religion. (oppressing women, cutting the heads off of “infidels”, blowing themselves up in crowded markets, flying planes into buildings killing thousands, issuing holy orders supporting child rape, etc, etc, etc) So no, you anti semitic, we don’t have to “listen to Jews” to find out what Islam is all about.

    Pointless murder? It wasn’t pointless. He didn’t take it solely on the grounds of a trophy. He was hunting for meat to feed people. It just happens that he took a prize along with the feast. That is what I would call a double bonus. Just because he is keeping the hide to mount doesn’t mean the meat wasn’t used. (besides, where do you think the hide ends up when it isn’t mounted? oftentimes it ends up in the trash)

    Now; whether or not you eat meat is completely up to you, I don’t know if you do or not. But without sustained, and responsible, hunting to thin the herd of wild beasts we have the problem of overpopulation which leads to real human problems like car crashes, disease, destruction of crops, etc, etc. So in short, there is nothing wrong with hunting as long as it is managed responsibly through hunting seasons and bag limits.

    Should have, could have. There is no concrete evidence to suggest that the deer would make it another year. However there IS evidence that shows statistically albinos do not survive as long as their normal colored kin. So either way you look at it, your point is moot.

    Who care’s what, if any, public outcry might be over shooting a rare albino deer. Albino’s don’t survive for long in the wild anyways as their white fur makes them easy prey. This was a once in a lifetime harvest for this young man, let him enjoy it! Let him have his trophy I say.

    Ha.ha.har.har…. you very funny … or so you think. Now go away.

    I’m going to take a different approach to this than most, because most are cracking wise comments (so far) on this story. This highlights what one of our problems is in this country. Why do you think we see videos of someone dying on the sidewalk and the majority of people just walk on by? Or step over them? Or throw money at them? It’s not that most people don’t care. It’s that we’ve become desensitized to the point where most people cannot recognize, or refuse to recognize, real people in distress. That’s due, in large part, to folks like this who think it’s a good idea to play pranks like this to get attention.

    What a dumb idea. I invite this guy to go drive a 8-10ft wide semi down a 10ft lane width road…. on a windy day… pulling a 53ft empty trailer. (it’s like a giant wind sail behind you) Then tell me how safe a narrower lane is. If you are driving a 6ft-8ft wide standard car/truck then a 10ft wide lane is pretty easy to do. But it doesn’t make any sense when you have millions upon millions of semi trucks on the road today. We actually need wider lanes with much larger intersections than we have today… especially east of the Mississippi river.

    I’m glad I left the singles dating scene over 10 years ago and got married. When I go on a date with my wife I know what she likes, where she likes to go, and what she likes to do. That and we can just be openly honest with each other when it’s time to put the kids to bed and head upstairs… no guesswork. ;)

    That map looks brutal for the single guys in this country.

    Experimental aircraft. I’d like to believe the whole UFO theory too but my rational brain takes over. Most likely they are experimental aircraft of some kind. Either from the private sector or armed forces.

    Here’s a question every American should be asking; why should any person be granted “civil service protections”? In a private sector business; if you waste money, practice inside trading, abuse company property, break the law, take part in questionable conduct (even outside of work, like hiring a prostitute), or abuse your authority in the workplace you would be handed a box for your personal things and escorted out the door. But not so if you work in the public sector. No wonder our country is going to hell in a hand basket.

    Isn’t it funny that when budgets get tight more cameras go up?

    Grover that is not entirely true. Wealth is not as much of a factor in family size as you make it out to be. In fact I would be willing to bet good money that the proportion of those who are well off financially versus those who are not isn’t that different. If anything I would wager that the scale is tipped in favor of those less wealthy versus those who have more monetary resources when it comes to family sizes. Part of that can be laid at the feet of the welfare state, which has been largely brought on by progressive policies, over the last half century or so. So, yes, Radical’s statement above that progressivism has more to do with the decline of the American family than laissez-faire capitalists. Actually, to be honest, I don’t see how you can even blame lassez-faire capitalists at all in today’s age considering that we haven’t see that in this country since the early part of the 20th century when John Maynard Keynes reared his ugly head with his economic theory. It was the progressives that pushed Keynesian economics that led to abandoning the gold standard and destroying the wealth of the US dollar. It was progressives that regulate businesses out of business or drive them overseas to escape progressive policies here. You are flat wrong to blame laissez-faire capitalists friend. The decline of the family can be totally laid at the feet of progressives.

    So basically it’s just that much more attractive to get a government job and suckle from the taxpayers teat. Got it.

    How about a bit of optimism; let’s hope this sobers the mother up and makes her realize the error of her ways. Let’s hope this is the turning point that makes her turn her life around. I guess one can always hope.

    I’m 100%, and then some, pro-2nd. I think every child should learn to shoot. But seriously, what the heck was a 9 year old doing learning to shoot a fully automatic weapon? At that age, if their parents choose to allow and teach them firearms, a child should still be shooting small caliber single shot rifles.
