10 million here, 10 million there…, next thing you know, you’re talking about a lot of people.

The Master/Servant relationship has been turned upside down.

Yeah. Except that the perp was armed. Does this mean that you believe that unarmed victims will always prevail over armed perps? By extension of your logic, the police should be unarmed. The truth is that she was lucky to get the knife away from the guy. Would you care to confront a knife wielder and attempt to take the knife from them?

Personally, I was looking forward to seeing Samson slay 1000 Philistines. I figured it was going to last through at least three commercial breaks. Lots of mayhem. Alas…, they only showed a dozen or so getting jawboned.

Believe it or not, a somewhat similar thing occurred to my neighbor across the street last week. A woman walking her dog (for reasons which no one has been able to discern) reported gunshots at my neighbors home. I was in a room directly facing my neighbors house at the time, and heard *nothing*. I have been around firearms my entire life, as a hunter and a serviceman, I know a gunshot when I hear one. Moreover, it was 10:30 at night, and the neighbor is absolutely quiet.
So…, the next thing you know, three squad cars pull up. The police kind of spread out and knock on my neighbor’s door. They tell them that gunshots have been reported, and ask for entrance to the house. He is perplexed by the entire thing, but refuses them entrance. They begin asking pointed questions about any guns he might own, ‘accidental’ discharge, whether his guns are secure, are there children in the home, etc.
On the one hand, I am sympathetic with the cops, after all, if the report was valid, then they have an obligation to do their job, and would not want them to do less. On the other hand, the fact that they respond without questioning the person who reported the ‘incident’ is disturbing. The time element can not be ignored, of course, but when demanding entrance to someones home, there ought to be manifest cause.
In this case, I am disturbed by what was clearly an intimidating threat ‘to obtain a warrant’. It was very fortunate that the guy had an immediate line to a good lawyer

I think the ‘Street Statue’ stuff is tacky. I’m not moved by it, but if people want to do it, I don’t object.
On the other hand, assaulting a street statue is an entirely different matter. As far as I’m concerned, I wish the guy’s jaw had been broken. Too bad the guy didn’t pull that pistol (assuming it is at least sturdy replica) and smack him with that. I’m reminded of the scene in Lonesome Dove where Gus (Robert Duvall) deals with the uppity bartender.

When I see Carney, I’m torn between Opie and Howdy Doody. The resemblance to Opie is stronger…, but Howdy Doody *is* a puppet…, so, Howdy gets the nod. There is the peripheral aspect of the name, “Howdy DOODY”, if you get my drift…

I want to know more about those “imploding bullets” she mentions…

I think it was Chesterton who said: “It is the age of constant sacrifice by the normal to the abnormal.”

“Living in a democratic society entails respect for opposing opinions.”–
Well…, no it doesn’t. In fact, that is PC, hyper-sensitive BS. In polite society we *endure* the expression of others opinions (opposing, or not), but we certainly should not feel the slightest need to respect those opinions. Liberals are constantly harping on the idea that all opinions and perspectives have equal merit, well, it isn’t so.
Example: Liberal: “I think I.D. voting laws are unfair.”
Conservative: “I disagree.”
Liberal: “Well, then we’ll just have to agree to disagree.”
The subtext of that “agree to disagree” is that they want you to tacitly acknowledge that their perspective is just as valid as your own.
The correct response is, “No, I do not agree to the equivalence of our perspectives.”

Okay…, I admit it…, I don’t watch MSNBC because Chris Matthews is there. If they just get rid of Matthews, then I’ll start watching….
MSNBC viewership is comprised entirely of the nut-job left.
This one is a Darwin Award candidate. They should have let her get to the paying part and dollars to donuts she would have used the checks or CC. Then they could have the whole case wrapped up in a nice tidy bundle.

The arrogance…, the hubris, of this administration boggles the mind. Meanwhile, the media sit around with Cheshire Cat grins.
On a related note, NC official told to make sure that the impact of cuts would be what WH claims, i.e., do not do anything that would alter the impact.
Note particularly the sentence: “So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
It is only mind boggling if you think in terms of American statesmen, and Western politicians. If you think in terms of Warsaw Pact Marxists, or Third World dictators, all of this makes perfect sense and is SOP.

You have forgotten the other choices…, i.e., she might have tried urinating and vomiting.
