    I never bought the idea that Dukakis lost because he wore the tank helmet. Frankly, if someone offered me a joyride in a tank, I’d wear a tiara if they told me to. More likely, it’s just that liberals hate the military and abandoned him after that.

    Are they honestly going to bother trying to keep up appearances now?

    Besides, Hannity isn’t a journalist, he’s a personality, and has made his support very public. What’s the big deal? Not that I care, I refuse to watch Fox anymore. But philosophically speaking, it’s not a big deal. Unless they’re pretending Hannity is a journalist. In that case, I give a hearty LOL.

    Hmmm… Two bombs explode in trash receptacles on the same day and others were found unexploded. Do we really need to dance around with theories that they *might* be related?

    “…a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate…”

    First, have they found anything yet that doesn’t symbolize exclusion and hate? I’m still waiting for an announcement that anything is actually ok.

    Second, boo-frickin’-hoo, not everything is “inclusive”. Get over it.

    The link was Blazeified. Replace “****” with the S-word and it will work.

    I don’t think “surprise” means what you think it means.

    So, the easy targets are marked with dicks. Fitting.

    “Top. Men.” Trump says, as his campaign is being crated up and wheeled into an endless warehouse.

    Trump surrounds himself with all the best people. Eventually. Maybe.

    If a gay person comes from a country that is repressive to the point of being in danger if it is known, then setting up encounters on a smartphone is a terrible, dangerous plan.

    Yeah, all I saw was a cop mag-dumping into a car, a shadow blurring across the frame in the distance, and then a cop trying to figure out how to get through a locked gate.

    Zero context, no footage of the actual shooting, not much info about the lead-up. It’s impossible to make a judgment about whether this was a proper use of force, based on what was presented here.

    Of course she does. They’re not *marked* classified.

    Mine got deleted. It wasn’t even that bad.

    I finally ran across a story that showed what he said. As far as I can tell, he just said something to the effect that she did a crappy job in a crappy movie, in his flamboyant way. Maybe he was a little rude, but I saw nothing racist or personal and I didn’t see anything where he incited anyone to say anything.

    To be fair, some of the treatment she got was pretty horrible, but I can’t understand why he was banned or why anyone is worked up about what he said.

    Let’s not vilify police? Fine time to adopt that position. That would have been nice to do a week or a month or a year ago.

  • [3] July 2, 2016 at 11:31am

    Wow, now I feel like I’ve been completely wasting my life.

    There is no gun problem. Debate over.

  • June 2, 2016 at 11:49am

    Another fact they don’t want people to know is, the murder rates in these countries they hold up as examples were always much lower than ours, even before gun bans. Instead, they point at the lower murder rate and directly credit gun bans.

    Fair point, but it’s a good bet that he personally knows people who couldn’t use any restroom or water fountain or eat in any restaurant. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t endorse the culture of victimhood but it’s not like Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and things were suddenly awesome. That bad stuff is finally in the past today but I can’t blame a person of his age for still feeling a connection to it, even though slavery ended way back then.

    “9 mph on a city street is irresponsible and dangerous.”

    If you’re talking about a tight, urban street with one lane and parking on both sides, you’re probably right. Most other streets, not even close. Resist the brainwashing that tells you that the speed limit correlates to danger.

    In TX, the speed limit on many two-lane country/suburban roads is 65 or even 70 mph. I’m talking roads with homes/driveways right there, not roads in the middle of nowhere. In NJ, those same exact kinds of roads, same traffic density, etc. would NEVER be above 50 mph, anywhere.

    Speed limits are somewhat arbitrary and used to be a fuel-saving measure (when the speed limit on interstates was 55). Not only that, but they’re used to boost revenue in towns. This can be directly observed when the limit on a street is artificially low (like 25 mph in an area with huge streets, no pedestrians, and generally low traffic), as well as in places where the speed limit goes rapidly up and down and up and down on a road. They bank on people not noticing the change and officers wait inside where the limit drops. A few mph over turns into 8 or 10+ mph over very quickly.

    If speed limits were truly about safety, then there should be speeding cameras on every street, doling out tickets automatically, all day, every day. But of course, they’re not. That’s why we put well-paid officers out collecting money from a very small percent of people who are actually committing the offense.
