Given that their leadership doesn't care about them at all, decent jeans may be hard to come by.

I’d have gone with “Fire on the A-hole”.

They do have weapons, compliments of Iran.

Jews are only unclean for a time if they handle pork products.
I imagine there’s a way to put a bit of pork into a JHP in such a way that the operator never has to touch it.

He kept saying “This is the place of… [insert weapons here]” and I kept hoping Israel would make it “The place of the smart bomb” right there in the video.

I was going to go with “outright stupidity” for $200.

I might be in the minority here and I might be wrong given the most recent decisions on gay marriage and the ACA.
That said, the makeup of the court has not changed in the past few years. This is the same court that struck down the D.C. and Chicago gun bans. If they follow THEIR OWN logic, they have to strike this down.
The majority opinion said, of semi-auto handguns, that banning a gun “in common use” (in this case semi-auto handguns) is prohibited by the Constitution. (Old laws banning the carrying of something unusual, such as a headsman’s ax, were upheld as early as the 1790′s.) Ergo, since semi-automatic rifles are in common usage, according to this very court’s own opinion no so long ago, banning them is unconstitutional.

Unplug it. If it’s cordless, remove the batteries.
Pressure wash and dry in a 150 degree oven for five hours. Then place in front of a fan that’s running for another five hours.
It works will cell phones, so it probably works with keyboards.

No joke. What do they think they’re doing?
There’s already a skin mag with no nude photos, it’s called Maxim.

While I agree there is an enormous difference between 50K and 2 million, there are however a couple things I’m thinking about here.
First, the amount of power the EMP has falls rapidly as you get further away. In fact, the power at a given point is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. In fact every time you double the distance you divide the power output of an EMP by four. Therefore, other than being fairly close it’s not a serious threat to things that are miles away. I’d have to look up the proper formula for air and it would depend on things like humidity as well, but I don’t think it’s a huge deal unless you’re fairly close.
Also, cars are grounded. A naturally occurring EMP is caused by lightning. Lightning reaches 1 billion volts or higher and can produce up to 200,000 amps. Your car can sustain a direct strike from lightning, while operating, and continue operating just fine with the passengers totally safe. (I’ve seen this with my own eyes and it happened to my dad’s 1968 Ford Mustang while he was driving it.) In effect a car acts as a Faraday Cage, protecting the electronics inside it’s frame. On top of that the car doesn’t have much in the way of long items that act as antennas, so the amount of energy they would absorb would be low compared to say… power lines.
Now things like the power gird are going to get fried, but generally speaking I think cars would be pretty safe from an EMP even if they’re close to it’s source. Some will surely die, but the vast majority I suspect will run, though they may have some annoying problems.

It won’t be confined to the cities.
Jalopnik tested this:
“Automobiles were subjected to EMP environments under both engine turned off and engine turned on conditions. No effects were subsequently observed in those automobiles that were not turned on during EMP exposure. The most serious effect observed on running automobiles was that the motors in three cars stopped at field strengths of approximately 30 kV/m or above. In an actual EMP exposure, these vehicles would glide to a stop and require the driver to restart them. Electronics in the dashboard of one automobile were damaged and required repair… Twenty-five automobiles exhibited malfunctions that could be considered only a nuisance (e.g., blinking dashboard lights) and did not require driver intervention to correct. Eight of the 37 cars tested did not exhibit any anomalous response.”
An EMP doesn’t stop automotive traffic. Those people will not being staying in that city for long.

What Barry Sanders are you talking about? The guy who played for the Lions is 47 and just finished a stint on ESPN…

Go read “Don’t Stop The Carnival” by Herman Wouk.
It sounds too ridiculous to be true, but all you have to do is buy a house is the islands to know that it’s not even half-way to the truth.
Crystal balls? I’d settle for them just growing a pair of regular old balls.

You have to cut through The Blaze writers inability to actually write. This is one of the most confusing things I’ve read on here in a long time, almost as if Dave Urbanski was half c o c ked and watching football when he wrote this.
There are three separate incidents here that The Blaze doesn’t do a very good job of separating.
The shooter’s family member claims that the shooter had a gun pulled on him earlier in the day and then, later in a separate incident was out washing his car when some sort of argument broke out between the shooter and the off duty officer.
What that argument might have been or what happened during it is unclear. What is clear is that at some point, for some reason or another, the shooter shot the police officer.
Then there’s the third incident, which is completely separate. Some idiot judge game some guy probation for bank robbery and that criminal murdered a cop. That took place in August.
 October 11, 2015 at 7:36pm
This shooter didn’t rob a bank. That’s a separate incident that occurred in August.
The Blaze did a very poor job of transitioning from the current story to background on what’s happened in the area recently.
 October 11, 2015 at 7:35pm
Jinxe is correct.
The Blaze has done a poor job of editing this story.
The person who was on probation for bank robbery has been charged with the murder of officer Sean Bolton. That murder occurred in August. That incident is completely separate from this one and most likely unrelated.
This particular incident, according to the information here seems to have resulted from an argument between the police officer and the shooter. The shooter’s family member says that he was washing his car and that someone had pulled a gun on him earlier in the day.
The whole thing is a mess. We’ll have to wait for details on this.
As for East’s OP: I agree. How do you rob a bank and get probation? In fact how do you commit armed robbery AT ALL and get probation? I’m virtually certain that if I committed “armed bank robbery” or even just armed robbery I would be in prison for quite a stretch.

I’ve said something similar to this to liberals repeatedly.
They just look at you funny for a second and then continue blathering on.
