    I’ve noticed a clamp down on comments lately too. Had a couple of mine gone AWOL the last few weeks too and mine are pretty tame compared to some around here. Just like the other day I wrote something about the kayak guy trying to reel in a shark makes me think some people deserve to be eaten by sharks… and it got deleted. I wonder if we have some new comment moderators around here and I wonder if they might be a bit on the, how might we say, thin skinned or touchy side some days? Or perhaps they are following a new rule booklet?

    You don’t use your personal page for business… you set up a business page for that. However it must be noted that you can’t start a second account, per say, on Facebook. It’s against Facebook’s rules. You have to use your main account (your personal account) to set up a ‘page account’. I tried to go over this in the original story in the comments section. Obviously the judge and some people involved don’t understand this. But it all boils down not using your personal page for your business which I think this guy did.

    The difference? People “friend” personal pages. Whereas people “like” and/or “follow” business/hobby/group/etc pages. You don’t “friend” pages. So if that is how the guy was doing it then the guy screwed up there because you can transfer any Facebook page to any other Facebook account holder by simply making them an Administrator on that page… then taking yourself off as an Administrator. (then it’s no longer your page – simple – it’s like trading baseball cards)

    My business is on Facebook. Even with all the negative pitfalls of social media it’s probably one of the biggest tools we use to sell merchandise. So don’t sell it short but keep that all in mind please.

    Yep, I don’t mean to be a smart butt in my other posts because I do feel badly for this happening, but you’re absolutely right here. The tools and information are readily available today for the general public to make their own free will choices on things like this. The only point I, and it appears others, are trying to make with our smart comments is that someone somewhere will look at accidents like this and think a new law or some sort of government involvement will solve the problem. (whether it be tighter manufacturing guidelines on pontoons or special licensing or special conditions usage, etc, etc) That’s not what we need here. We just need people to use their heads and stop being morons. Use the tools readily available to them like you pointed out.

    Absolutely. They should be given a budget of no less than 500 million dollars each year and be mandated to hire only angry lesbians as their main enforcers. These women can stand on the rivers with bullhorns screaming at the river at how illegal pontoons and bridges and rivers are. They can have the official title of Government Dykes. We’ll even give them badges.

    (that might be a little too much – TheBlaze censors might not let that fly) ;)

    I say let’s go crazy. Instead of going half way on this let’s outlaw rivers completely. It eliminates the need for boats and bridges. No more risk at all.

  • [13] July 5, 2015 at 9:23am

    We must outlaw high capacity pontoon boats. It’s the only way to end this madness…

    I hate to admit defeat but I think I’m going to call it… in many ways us pro-firearms folks have lost the argument thanks in large part to those who drum up mass hysteria (cable TV, sensationalist media, news media, pop culture, Hollywood, etc) and completely ignorant morons like this. 30 years ago someone walking into a mall with a firearm slung over their shoulder and the most that would happen would be they might get yelled at to put it away or take it back out to their car before ‘we call the cops ya idiot’. Today it’s mass panic and the SWAT teams show up in armored cars, news helicopters are on the scene, the place is on lock down, and I wouldn’t be surprised if fighter jets weren’t on standby at the nearby air force base. We can point fingers all day long at who is to blame… the left will blame the gun and the right will blame the lack of God. Personally? I don’t know. I do know it’s the heart of man at issue here and times have changed… and not for the better. Just thinking out loud again folks, don’t mind me. ;)

    Soooo explain to me, again, why no one is in jail yet? (rhetorical question)

  • July 2, 2015 at 10:19pm

    Really Blaze staff?

    What was offensive about saying “It’s called cut the line genius, you’re not going to haul up a 7ft shark in a kayak – watching videos like this make me think some people deserve to be eaten by sharks”. I understand that the guy eventually hauled in the shark but still…

    Did the comments moderator wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? ;)

    Eh… nope. Sorry. Christie is running on the wrong ticket if you ask me and he surely won’t be getting my vote.

  • [8] June 29, 2015 at 4:34pm

    Good. Enough of this crap.

  • [29] June 29, 2015 at 12:21am

    I’m pretty sure it is. I think I watched one of those Locked Up shows that showed a drunk guy throwing his feces and spitting at a county jail guard and he got extra time on his jail sentence for assault with a deadly weapon or some such base on that argument. The judge wasn’t amused when he heard he was flinging poo around and spitting.

    He’s a better man than I am… at the very least I would have returned the favor.

    Yep – I visit those cities on occasion and every time I do I can’t wait to get out of them. Why anyone would want to live in such places is beyond me.

  • [4] June 28, 2015 at 6:27pm

    You’ve got to find my food first…. ;)

    Oh crap, did I just write that, the NSA probably just dedicated a satellite to me. Dang it!

    Beginning of the end of the EU.

    Double parking is illegal in NYC. It doesn’t matter if you are going in to purchase a coffee, pick up your child from school, pay your bar tab, or pray at the local mosque. No one is above the law. That’s supposed to be the beauty of a nation of laws. Get with the program people.

    That is my response to them.

    Thanks for the clarification. I figured it had something to do with this. I still think the farmer should share some blame in this but that’s just my personal opinion I guess.

  • [1] June 27, 2015 at 3:22pm

    I’m not saying that the dog owner wasn’t at fault and I know you are not saying that I imply they weren’t. I just want to be clear there. I am merely making a point here. The point is that the sheep was just being the sheep. The dog was just being the dog.

    Seems to me that both parties of humans should be held accountable. Dog owner should have kept the dog under control and the sheep herder shouldn’t have left the sheep unattended or grazing unprotected on land he/she didn’t own.

    Regardless of laws protecting said livestock. It’s called personal responsibility and all that fun stuff……

  • [4] June 27, 2015 at 2:41pm

    I guess I’m kind of curious why the farmer isn’t being held responsible as well for keeping his sheep corralled in some way instead of letting them graze in a county park. (read: public land used by everyone) But I guess maybe it’s a British thing and I don’t quite understand it.
