    I doubt the veracity of this story. That said, who wouldn’t want to dump on UBL’s body? I’d take a laxative for insurance!

    That search took about 30 seconds. Tell me again how the police are calm, cool and level-headed.

    I posted a comment elsewhere re: the whole Enhanced Sentencing concept. I find it incredibly wrong, even though I fall under one of the Protected Species (an original… EMS). The idea that one should be punished more for an attack on a specific group is vile; it places greater value on the life of a group member than on the citizenry at large. This is bound to cause resentment toward the group members, as well as change an individual’s thoughts about people in general. The fact that the Supreme Court has upheld these laws does not mean that they are good, or just; it merely means that five folks in black robes made a decision one day. They were wrong. “The Constitution means whatever the Supreme Court says it means” is a foul concept, too.

    I worked EMS in the early ’80′s when the first that I heard of “enhanced punishment” was toward EMS, Fire Department, and Law Enforcement personnel. I didn’t like it then, for the same reasons I don’t like it now….. the concept places a greater value on one group than on other persons. I’ve seen in (inevitavbly) evolve into the “Thought Crimes” we have now, which are a source of contempt and hostility of one group vs. another. I realize my voice in the wilderness will go largely unheard, but I believe it more accurately describes “Equal Justice under the Law” than the screwed-up system we now have.

    One thing to consider: I’ve seen on this and other comment sections folks who tend to let their fingers do the talking while their brains are disengaged. In this time of easily-tracked communications, the joker who sent his threats likely has already had visits by various agencies if not by private individuals. Think of such when tempted to make inflammatory, derogatory statements, whether here, on facebook, or anywhere else. The same goes for those who jump in with both feet in response to a crime, stating what they would do if ever in such a situation…. it may come back to bite you in court if you ever ARE in that situation. Mind your manners.

    I’m trying to figure out why I’m supposed to give a rip about what he thinks….

    Ditto to Gonzo; the reason Carney drones on and on is to evade, obfuscate, and deflect attention from his boss’ obvious attempts to do exactly what Carney is blaming on the Tea-party Republicans. Something I’ve noticed over the years: that which one finds most egregious in others is quite often that which one is, himself, guilty of.

    Regarding this patriot’s being hassled a bit, perhaps to his hair and beard…. I went to high school with a man who went into the Army and served honorably for 10 years or so, during the time we were teaching folks how to defend themselves in Central America, often with household chemicals. He had rather high security clearances, and learned a lot about security as applied to military and private situations. After the Berlin Wall came down my chum left the Army and developed a business in Russia, teaching businesses how to protect their interests from being pirated by other businesses and from the prying eyes of the government. His hair and beard grew considerably during this time, as did his kids back in S. Carolina, where he commuted to much more frequently than during his enlistment. As time went on, he found he was accepted more favorably in Russia than in the area that his wife and kids spent all their time. At ball games, he was disrespected, treated as an outcast, with obvious contempt. In Russia, he was just another guy. Mind you, he could buy and sell half of the community in S. Carolina due to his business ventures, but never made a point of it; rather, he simply raised his kids and kept his smile. All considered, it’s odd how we too often treat our fellow man based on such superficial things as appearances… as is evidenced again by our patriot in this article. Keep on keepin’ on, Sir! And thank you for YOUR service.

    As an aside, one can’t help but wonder how much of the sarin gas came over the border from Iraq say, a decade ago?

    If it can be proved that Hillary and Huma were having trysts, there would be an arguable case for preferential treatment on the basis of sexual origin. Her being a switch-hitter comes as no surprise at all. Further, Gennifer and so many others will vote for her if she dips a cat in wax and sets it afire because nothing–nothing– overrides the fact that she has no testicles. Well, maybe if she was a person of color….

    My 2 cents: Good on her husband for breaking the ice; unfortunate he didn’t impress “self defense” strongly enough but nobody is dead. “Tagging” the truck would NOT fly in most jurisdictions; in many places it’s a felony to shoot into an occupied vehicle or home. Hopefully the prosecutor will see common sense. Last, for all the armchair quarterbacks, myself included, don’t shoot your mouth off in comment sections like this, as you may one day be forced to explain yourself in court if you are involved in a shooting. Carry on.

    It’s not about the 39 feet, it’s not about politics, it’s about finding any way possible to make a buck. Most cities are seeing people fleeing to more welcoming areas, whether due to more freedoms on the one hand or more government goodis on the other. The net result is a smaller base; hence, exptract every dime they can from every person they can. Note the radar cams, stoplight cams, etc. that require little to no human presence yet turn big bucks. Follow the money.

    I read the first dozen or so comments and wondered if folks had read the same article I did. I read a message of kindness, thoughtfulness and appreciation; apparently others read something else entirely. Pity, that.

    …and so it is with water. My very small village voted to have the new-fangled wonder-meters installed in everyone’s homes so they wouldn’t have to pay a meter-reader…. and all of our bill have skyrocketed. How can this be? Surely it must be Gaeia lashing out…

    Choosing to use one product based on science or experience is one thing; having the .gov mandate what is “best” is questionable, if not dubious. Too many special interests (Solyndra, anyone?) sticking their agenda-driven noses into my life. CFL disposal, if done as mandated, is a nightmare. If I break a conventional bulb, I sweep it up and toss it out. I agree with Glenn in principle, and agree that shock effect was his intent with the “firing” comments. The left doesn’t get that, either.

    I haven’t time to read all the comments, but as a viewer of Ted’s TV program I’m aware of how the power of the Federal government was brought to bear (pun intended) upon him while he was hunting in Alaska. Apparently he shot at, and may have nicked, a bear with his bow but finding no evidence of serious injury continued hunting. His guide was aware of this. He later killed a bear. The Feds saw this, checked out the details of all the laws in the area and found that the one very specific area in which he was hunting had a law which would require one to have declared the first bear as one’s “limit”. The guide, outfitter, local law enforcement, DNR officials and judge knew nothing of this– but Eric Holder found a way to get at Ted. I don’t recall how many hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, fees and cout costs were racked up, but as part of his sentence he was required to include a “Public Service Announcement” about being aware of ALL laws, even those that the local and state DNR don’t know about. Shemane WILL be made example of. I have NO doubt.

    I haven’t time or energy to read all the comments, but I do still have my “Anyone but Hillary” T-shirt from the last go-around and will proudly wear it!

    Another thrilling episode of “Bullies with Badges”, brought to you by your tax dollars, hard at work as always!

  • July 24, 2013 at 2:50pm

    Well said. While I agree with his sentiments, this exhibits the traits of “Bullies with Badges.”

  • July 24, 2013 at 12:58pm

    Again, heads up, folks. Those who speak so passionately about asserting their “rights” to take back the country by force are being watched. It doesn’t really matter what name one uses on these posts, anyone with a bit of time and tech can track you down one by one. There are times and places for such things; a comment section on a website is likely not such a good idea.
