    I was there back in 1983. After a couple of beers a friend and I decided to climb the Matterhorn (at night, in winter, wearing a denim Levi’s jacket for warmth) just to see how far we could get.

    It turns out the answer is pretty much what you would expect. There’s a small collection of graves of failed climbers in downtown Zermatt that you can’t help but walk past. It may have had a small impact on our decision to turn back before reaching the summit.

    This is the technology that is in the F-35. The pilot can literally look anywhere, even straight down or behind him and see through the aircraft.

    Don’t plan on sneaking up on one unless your life insurance is paid up.

    Greenwood, someone asked a person they believe to be in heaven to pray for them.

    By your definition of intercession, you would be committing a sin every time you prayed for another person.

    Saying that your comments were “unfortunately misinterpreted” is not an apology. Its blaming the other person for your mistake.

    It’s always better to keep your mouth shut than to issue a backhanded apology.

    The resignation and $1.5m payout is from a civil suit, not criminal.

    The trooper obviously broke several laws by attacking her, but when the DA chooses not to press charges some people are going to say he did nothing wrong.

    The Constitution says bearing arms is a right, yet I had to “buy” a handgun carry permit and pay to take a mandatory class to be able to carry a handgun. Just like I have to pay for a license to operate a vehicle on public roads.

    So driving doesn’t become a privilege just because the state says you need to be licensed.

    The roads belong to the people and we have a right to travel unmolested by the government if we aren’t doing anything wrong.

    I find in favor of the driver and sentence the cop to a week off without pay and he must attend anger management class at his own expense before returning to work.

    Where’d you hear that?

    I’ve heard of Vets who served in Laos who were exposed to Agent Orange and had medical treatment denied to them because the US was never officially in Laos.

    Maybe I don’t know enough about this case to put 2 and 2 together, but Agent Orange can cause lung cancer like this guy has.

    Rust, AK’s, vodka and dashcam videos.

    Thank you Russia, for providing us with the finer things in life.

    ChristAlive can learn from his mistake, but I’m pretty sure you’re going to be a jerk for the rest of your life.

    He “stretched” the front yard by adjusting the focal length of his lens.

    The bomb is still connected to the ejector rack. So the bomb wasn’t dropped, it was ripped off the wing.

    @Exrepubsheep, yes. Borders are controlled by the federal government.

    While local law enforcement can arrest an illegal immigrant and turn them over to the Feds, they have no presence on the border. All laws concerning immigration are federal. Even if a state sends their National Guard to to border they have no authority to arrest. They basically observe and report.

    How could you not know that the borders are controlled by the federal government, not the states? Another public school education failure.

    From most people I would guess. If you jump out in front of me to stop me from driving I’m going to get out of the car and do what it takes to move you.

    Stopping me from getting to work, home, to the doctors office or whatever, is not a peaceful protest. Stand on the side of the road with a sign if you have to protest.

    “We want to make sure these are used to back up agents, not to persecute them.”

    Video doesn’t take sides, so does this mean any evidence of wrongdoing by federal agents is going to be destroyed or suppressed?

    I’m a strong proponent of body cams for law enforcement, but the border patrol needs to understand that video recordings work both ways.

    Exrepublisheep, were you asleep during the 1980′s?

    Selling arms to Iran was completely legal, so there was nothing to “catch.”
