    They’re usually overseas. Can’t prosecute and if they’re calling from the Ukraine those governments rely on the scammer business to get their money from bribes.
    The scams would stop if the American people had any common sense.

    Amen. The IRS will never call you about a tax bill. You will get letters, court summons, liens, etc but they will never call you.

    Because, like most federal legislation, the “Do Not Call Registry” was just feel-good legislation. There’s enough loopholes in that law that it’s practically useless. The telemarketers have very well funded lobbyist groups.

    I’ve found the best way to handle ANY phone scammer or telemarketer is to get and keep them on the phone as long as possible. This works especially well with telemarketers. Each call they make is timed, so if the caller stays on the phone too long the telemarketer loses money on that call if they don’t make a sale. So, if you can keep them on the phone past say 3 minutes they start to lose money. They will then flag your call record as unresponsive do not contact. The best method to use is as a “confused elderly person”. Tell them you have to find your wife, whos upstairs, then look for your checkbook and tell them about your pet dog. It’s a ton of fun stringing them along until THEY hang up.

    It’s not even a dose of their own medicine. Reid allowed NO amendments, zero. It was up and down votes on legislation he personally approved for votes. Now the dems are sqawking because they’re only allowed 15 of their frivolous amendments to the bill. Lets be clear, the amendment process is designed to slow down and delay a bill by the minority party. Reid allowed no amendments so he could push Obama’s bills through quickly. McConnell is correct in allowing LIMITED amendments and 15 is plenty. Especially when the Dems refuse to then vote on their own amendments.

    I love it when the Senate starts to work the way it’s designed and the Dems bellyache when they’re allowed to do what Reid prevented for 6 years. This will be a fun ride. I can’t wait for Ginsberg to retire from SCOTUS. I hope McConnell holds firm for a reasonable replacement.

    Yup. I had the same thing except it was a bathtub faucet. The plumber showed me the little clip inside the tub faucet handle that I could remove after he left to get hotter water. But he had to put it on there due to the governments need to reside in my bathroom.

    You are not trained as a police officer to do hand-to-hand in these situations. That’s for the movies. Proper training protocol is you push against the suspect if possible to throw him off balance, then you move back and to the side, drawing your weapon as you go. It’s very difficult to hit a moving target with a handgun, even for trained shooters. Even if you do get hit, it’s normally not a fatal shot. My guess is as a rookie he went thru the basics of that in the academy but didn’t have enough repetitive training to respond quickly enough. After a few years of repeated training it becomes an instant response.

  • January 16, 2015 at 4:50pm

    Actually, just the opposite. If the suspect had a knife or a firearm, rushing him will get you in a world of hurt. Training dictates that you MOVE, back and off to the side. It’s very hard to hit a moving target, even at close range, with a handgun. This guy would likely not have chased the officer. I’ve trained in many close exchange scenarios and it’s surprising how hard it is to hit a target that’s moving and only 3 ft away, even by well trained shooters. In this case, hand comes up and hits the suspect in the chest, you move back and to the side, drawing your weapon as you go. It buys you the second you need to pull your weapon and return fire. This officer got too close and failed to read the body language of the suspect. You could clearly see him blading his right side away from the officer.

  • January 16, 2015 at 4:44pm

    That, actually, was poor procedure on the part of the officer. As soon as this guy pulled out his left hand but his right hand stayed in his pocket that officer should have pulled HIS weapon, backed away and ordered the suspect to the ground. When a suspect fails to reveal his hands and especially when he intentionally leaves one hand in a pocket your radar should go off. Most people are right handed so it’s not the usual hand that will stay in a pocket, in addition you could clearly see the suspect continue to position his right side away from the officer. Body language alone should have indicated something was wrong.

    Because BoneHead is advancing the liberal agenda faster than Pelosi did. He’s not even a RINO, he’s a “conservative democrat”.

  • [2] January 16, 2015 at 4:32pm

    This tells you all you need to know about BoneHead. The NYT actually fired someone for making a crack about a GOP representative. The media needs to protect him to keep him in the GOP leadership. After all, he advances liberal causes better than Pelosi did.

  • [1] January 16, 2015 at 4:21pm

    Well at least this proves that gay people have finally achieved equality. They’re as equally stupid as other Obama voters.

  • [2] January 16, 2015 at 4:18pm

    Well, you know the old saying “Never bring a moron to a gun fight”

  • January 9, 2015 at 4:26pm

    What a tool this guy proves himself to be. Any and all states match that description. Mark Warner was re-elected to his Senate job in VA and he won only 4 counties in the whole state. All metro areas. VA Beach, Richmond and 2 in Northern VA (which is actually just an enclave for locusts from MD fleeing the high taxes they voted for there). Colorado Springs is a conservative capital? News to me. This clown needs to visit west Texas or Oklahoma sometime or for that matter, any rural area where people are self-reliant and have no use for government.

  • January 9, 2015 at 4:17pm

    You’re correct. FoxNews isn’t spared in this. They’re just as cowardly and have no legs to stand on. This is a seminal moment for news media around the world and we’ve found they’re nothing but cowards.

  • [2] January 9, 2015 at 4:15pm

    If all the media stood up in unison on this stuff the terrorist’s wouldn’t be able to keep up with who they hate. It would overwhelm them. But when 95% of the cowardly media crawls on their bellies to curl up in the fetal position in the closet it leaves the rest of them holding the bag.

    First, this makes no business sense. This owner should have known the stigma of having an ebola stricken business. She never should have reopened under the same name. She should have gotten out of her lease, then reopened with a different name in a different location. Secondly, she should sue the pants off this nurse for the cost of lost sales and her livelihood. What this nurse did was clearly reckless and instead of supporting the business she cancelled her order.

    Blind, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.

    In reply to the story Harry Reid May Go Blind in One Eye

    One thing you can say about the weak-kneed GOP. They do respond to pressure. While the dems ignore their voters because they’re all on the same plantation, the GOP voters think for themselves and WILL stay home during an election or vote for someone else. If we keep the pressure up even Bonehead will have to cave eventually.
