    You are correct. I forgot about the grouping. I stand corrected.

    The correct answer is actually -13. You have to follow PEMDAS and resolve the addition first:
    1 – 2 + 3 – 4 + 5 = 1 – 5 – 9 = -13

    I haven’t seen the right answer yet, so here it is. You have to resolve the operations in a specific order, known as PEMDAS. You have to resolve Parenthesis, Exponents, then Multiplication, then Division, Addition and Subtraction. So we go through the list and resolve the Addition first:
    1 – 2 + 3 – 4 + 5 = 1 – 5 – 9

    Then the subtraction:
    1 – 5 – 9 = -13

    The answer is -13.

    Saying you’re a conservative + Acting against conservative principles = Not a conservative

    Why would people in Las Vegas or San Francisco be searching online for porn? It’s rampant in the streets! I would expect living in a more “conservative” state that those looking for porn would be more likely to do it via online searches rather than running down to the closest smut shop to buy something. How is this a revelation?

    This is why we need less armed-to-the-teeth LEO and more armed average good guy citizens.

    I feel for that little girl, especially. Killing someone can have a profound effect on an adult, I think it’ll be much worse for this child.

    In a way I am glad we got to see this. I personally observed several issues that will help me be more careful.

    1. Kids that small are not going to be able to control a fully auto anything without considerable training. If I were to even consider training a child this smal to handle such a weapon, I’m thinking using blanks and having devices in place to keep the gun from walking would be prudent.

    2. When the instructor was making the switch to full auto, the girl’s finger must’ve still been on the trigger. I don’t think the instructor was ready for her to go ahead and pull the trigger, I think he was still trying to give her instructions. At the very least, I’d want someone new to fully auto to have their finger well clear of the trigger while changing the fire selector, then taking a very long time to get set up to brace for the gun’s recoil. I’d also complete my instructions before making the switch.

    3. Several quick, successive pulls of the trigger while in semi-auto would give an idea where the gun will move and would allow for proper bracing against that movement. So he had her fire one shot. Then it should have been two, one right after the other, then three.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I do sincerely hope that God helps him work on his issues and restores him as a follower of Christ, but never to be in a position of leadership again.

    “Gays” are asking for – and getting – special privileges to “marry” the same sex. They have the same rights everyone else does, and they have the same privilege to marry a member of the opposite sex just like the rest of us. This has never been about righting wrongs and making sure everyone’s rights are applied. This has always been about forcing acceptance of a deviant lifestyle. “Gays” need help and they aren’t getting it.

    Yes, very. I just did the math using the totals and percentages for each party. When looking at the top 156 donors, Democrats received almost 500 BILLION dollars more.

    And you took pictures because it was ABNORMAL. These people need help. The first step to getting help is to recognize there is a problem.

    And I’m pretty sure you’re exaggerating how much it occurs.

    So let’s recap, shall we, Mr. Morse? As president of the Senate, you urged senators to ignore the pro-defense crowd. You made sure it’d be hard for opposition to the gun bills to be heard, and sent the sheriffs of this state packing when they wanted to give reasons to oppose the bill. You went out of your way to change the way the senate operated so your fellow senators wouldn’t go weak in the face of substantial opposition.

    You shouldn’t be surprised at the backlash. Now you go down in history as the first-ever recalled Colorado politician. And it happened because you didn’t bother to do you job properly. Instead you got your backing from Bloomberg and you ran with it, trampling the very citizens you are supposed to serve.

    Congratulations.

    I would like to know what makes Rubio think any laws on strengthening the border would actually be followed since we already have laws on the book to build fences that aren’t built. All those provisions are worthless until we can hold people accountable for not following the laws that are already in place.

  • April 11, 2013 at 9:27pm

    I live in Colorado, and I keep having this fantasy that all those who voted for these laws would be rounded up by Sheriff’s Posses, taken to a state border, and told to never come back.

    FPSRussia (Keith) was the other one I was thinking of.

  • February 2, 2013 at 10:39pm

    I was thinking the same thing. There was some other high-profile person killed also. It’s as if firearms experts are being systematically removed.

    Those calling for Gun Control are really advocating a country-wide “Gun Free Zone”…. but Sandy Hook and Columbine and… were already “Gun Free Zones”.

    I think this means that Obama actually had a cheat sheet, or seriously thought about using one for the debate. They always like to accuse others of the very things they do.
