Looking at your user name and comments, I'm guessing that you think "they" who opened it are "politicians," meaning elected officials. Please point out in the article where it said a politician opened the capsule. You get bonus points if you can identify their elected position (Cambridge City Council, MA Legislature, US Congress, etc.) and party.
And if you're referring to what the Constitution of the United States "says," then "constitution" gets a capital 'C'.

What about Obama’s buddy who has ties to terrorism?
Or his racist pastor?
I think Zap got hit a little too hard and ran away again!
Sorry RJJ but...
My simply pointing out that using one 'failure' to try and excuse another is not an attempt to 'set straight' anyone. Rather it is simply done to point out the hypocrisy / double standard many here use to defend those they support.
O yea, i remember when Carson bought his house from Tony Rezco for cheap. Wait that was Carson right?
According to the Wall Street Journal, Carson was associated with a company that makes vitamins our of tree bark that they claim will cure autism and cancer.
They will pull out all the stops to try to take Carson down.
The Democrats and their complicit media will stop at nothing to eliminate him from the race.
More so than any of the other candidates, Carson is the real threat to a liberal.
@Zap Mod - Its funny how you two have the nerve to talk about hypocrisy since you both display it every time you're on this site. And the tree bark was supposed to cure stupidity in liberals...
Give King Bo a week and he will have a Court Order to seal the records or to seal your mouth for blasphemy. He could always write an Executive Order and you'll disappear.
michae, I was talking about this from the Wall Street Journal, who are not known for being liberal:
Your post was harsh and uncalled for. I just pointed out what the WSJ said. Why don't you get on their case not mine for pointing out what they said. Don't kill the messenger dude!
If you are going to accuse me of hypocrisy you might want to be able to support your contention.
Care to offer ANY examples of my hypocrisy?
Or feel free to call me out on such next time you see such.
@ Zap and Mod again, Any time you two nitwits go against the grain here on an issue like this, IT IS FOR SURE that the liberals have done it twice as bad and for twice as long, yet you spend all of your time here on a site bashing conservatives actions.
You are both just pitiful trolls.

Rabid, I am merely pointing out the fallacy in your arguments.
Too many people cry out that they want someone that’s not a career politician, but then claims the new guy don’t have enough career politician qualifications.
As far as the founders is concerned, I am absolutely correct. They were not all business owners, or lawyers, or politicians, or, or, or. As you have also pointed out. They did not have all the qualifications that everyone demands today.
Since George Washington lost more battles than he won, with todays mentality he would not be considered for President.
I could go on for hours, but why waste my time?

” He has no political background”
I suppose you also say a person must keep quiet about the constitution if they are not scholars?
“no business background”
The Gov-ment has no business in creating jobs. Thats not their role.
“no legal background”
By his own admission, Trump has made his money by “using the system”. Using eminent domain the way he liked was not legal. So why in the world would Trump want to change the system that he knows and made him rich?
“no foreign background”
Agreed on this one.
Basically, you have just disqualified every one of the founders for their role in forming this country.
 October 25, 2015 at 11:33pm
Last I checked it was never a presidents responsibility to create jobs. So what is trumps point exactly?
Look, it's a far away decision about the top candidate for the GOP post. There is a reason why Dr Carson is gaining ground and in some cases taking over on Trump. I believe that we'll see the most deserving candidate will be elected to run for president representing true republicans.
Except that the next president could roll back all the job-killing regulations, taxes, and laws, and that would free the market to get going, and explode it would.

“the strongest ever in the Western Hemisphere.”
Is this a global warming type of assurity? After all we have no idea how big they have been since before we started recording.

It WAS forced but she is not worried.
We have a gov-ment comprised of crooks who make their own rules. She will never see a single day in jail. But rather continue on making millions and eventually we will have to deal with Chelsea’s husband and the clintons fortune.

It amazes me how everything some other culture does is somehow okay. But anything a white person does is racist and barbaric.
Yes, Columbus may have done some stuff that we today would not agree with. But even with their mentality at the time, they still saw fit to call the natives “savages” for what they witnessed. Scalping, skinning people alive with seashells, raping and murdering other tribes, plundering from other tribes, eating hearts of their victims, ect..
In George Washingtons biography he talks about partnering up with the natives to attack the British. He recounts how disturbed he was when a native warrior hit the British general over the head thus cracking open his skull. Then he reached into the mans head and pulled out his brains, held them high, then hollered out a war cry.
The point is… not one single culture has done something they have not already done to themselves.

The problem dcnative is that people are gullible. They lack the ability to think for themselves.
People hear something and believe it right away, then without any understanding whatsoever, decide for themselves that someone is an idiot. When in reality they need to look at themselves.
When people actually believe a sarcastic statement such as “guns just get up off a porch and shoot minorities”. We know the country is over if they actually vote.
Judging by your post and your one thumbs up. We know of at least two people who lack critical thinking skills.
I especially love how you ended your comment with “stupid humans do make stupid opinions sound moronic”. It was just icing on the cake!
And remember, Dont leave your racist guns unattended on the front porch. Safety First!
 October 10, 2015 at 8:57am
Nice Try, Blaze!
What about all those guns that I see sitting on porches without proper human supervision. They could just get up and shoot a minority that walks by without warning. Why dont we have laws preventing those?
I dont see why we cant just have more laws so criminals will finally follow them. My liberal logic says if we can have equal misery for everyone then there will be less problems.
You have actually seen a gun get up off a porch and go shoot people? Criminals following the law?
By your own words, you are one of those that needs to be put away for the safety of others. More laws do not make less criminals, neither to unattended weapons go on shooting rampages. But stupid humans do make stupid opinions sound moronic.

I read the article heading and thought to myself, “surely not”.
Welp, it did not disappoint, exactly what I thought was going to happen did happen. What a shame.
These people are scum on a level most of us will never be able to comprehend. Thankfully. Is it not ironic that these morons rail against capitalism constantly but never miss a chance to capitalize on something that will give them more power? These are the morals of people that believe in gay marriage, child murder, and gun control. Sick puppies to say the least.

Gn8, I do understand the law “could” fail to pass. But the way the Supervisor Mark Farrell worded his comments is to suggest he knows the bill will pass. So does the store owner who decided it was enough.
 October 5, 2015 at 9:18am
“Farrell said the bill hasn’t been voted on, and he doesn’t understand why the store is closing now. He said it was “comical” that the High Bridge is blaming its closure on a proposed law still months away from taking effect.”
The bill hasn’t been voted on but is still months away from taking effect? Hmmm, whats the difference in closing now versus a couple months away, other than not having to video tape the last purchases?
The law could fail to pass? While I think it likely will pass given the city's political leanings, closing in protest of a law *potentially* passing is a bit much.
If passed the law could also be challenged in court, while many businesses have security cameras, I don't think any of them are required to report to the police about what their customers buy unless there has been a crime committed by a suspected customer, this seems to be a pretty clear breach of privacy and potentially a warrentless search.
To Gn8_the_Questioner. Did you read the article? (1) This business has been placed under dramatic red tape stress for more than a decade. (2) While sales in the US and California are up, by a large margin, while his sales were down and he had to let employees go. (3) This is what big government does, a la Keystone Pipeline, they don't say no, but they make the red tape expensive, difficult, and time consuming. (4) I do not see that climate changing in SF anytime soon. (5) I would question why he did not leave sooner.

I think his nickname on the SFPD is Officer Dick.

#1 IT’s MEATLOAF! You can get sick off it but it depends on who cooks it.
#2 At $7 bucks a pound, why do inmates in prison get hamburger when most Americans are struggling to buy it?
Back to bread and water I say. Stop making prison into an all expense paid vacation and people wont want to go.

You beat me to it!
When rent for a small one bedroom apartment is close to $700 plus utilities in a good neighborhood, or $500 plus utilities in the ghetto, which would you choose?
Of course, the better neighborhood. But what if you cant find a good one income job because illegals have taken them? What if taxes equals 50% of your income? What if you put in overtime for an extra $1000 a month but now your in a higher tax bracket and only get a couple hundred after taxes? What if inflation takes up your buying power?
People need to understand in most areas the cost of living out paces the available incomes. People need to understand taxes and inflation are killing us. People need to understand that illegals are not just taking up jobs Americans wont do, but also those we want to do.
When I bid for a job and lose it to illegals who will do it for half because they like to live with 8 families in one home and dont pay taxes, which is against many other laws, how am i supposed to compete with that?
It has nothing to do with the almighty dollar and everything to do with treading water. It has become so difficult to make a living off one income that we are forced to make both parents work. I have not raised my prices because no one elses income has gone up. Guess what, our expenses have. $7 per pound of hamburger is ridiculous! I could eat bologna all day but how can I pay for healthcare due to a bad diet?
GET A CLUE BUMSNIGHTMARE!

Politicians will know which phone will last in their back pocket when their butts are kicked out of office!
September 23, 2015 at 12:23pm
Again, are you going to say the same thing if someone buys your gun from you and then uses that gun to murder someone else?
Are you somehow an accessory to murder? I say no.
However, if you sold that gun illegally then you should be prosecuted for THAT crime.
“If the stores, manufacturers and other involved parties are a contributing factor to other murders”
That’s my point. They are not.
Your opening up a can of worms that now says if you sell a gun to anyone you will be held accountable for the actions of the person whom you sold that gun to. Sorry, but that aint right.
You want to give another tool to the anti-gun agenda? Go ahead, see how many people will sell guns if they know they will be held accountable for any wrong doings involving that gun.
Eric holder should be held accountable for not following the laws in regards to gun sales. That’s it.
What am i missing here?
 September 23, 2015 at 9:47am
They need to be more clear with a sign that says, “This is a rifle and this is a gun. This is for shootin and this is for fun!”
