    Wasp spray works well if you follow these simple instructions:

    1) Tape, or otherwise attach, a can of wasp spray to intruder, preferably over vital organs.
    2) Shoot the can.

    In a way that’s pretty hard to argue you didn’t understand the message.

    To be fair, he didn’t build that metal detector, and that metal detector wouldn’t have been built without public roads or schools! And how pray tell would he have received the metal detector he ordered without said public roads?!

    I mean it’s not like he spent countless hours wandering around using that detector over the course of years or anything!

    I try so hard to make a liberal-esque argument and it just hurts to lie so much… how do they do it?

    I’m still waiting for an explanation from a Lefty on how exactly a court can force a private business to serve gays but it’s totally acceptable for them to ban open-carriers and even CCW carriers from the stores.

    I’m no fan of the no compromise positions taken by some.

    That said, the idea you’re going to reach a reasonable compromise with any of the bigwigs in today’s Democratic party is a joke. Their idea of compromise is that the Republicans give them everything they want.

    Just look at the ACA, they’re not willing to fix the parts that even THEY admit

    The “Faux News” thing drives me nuts. It’s almost as though Lefties don’t understand or care how “faux” is pronounced.

    It’s not a clever word play unless you’re stupid.

    But it’s the people that watch fox that are dumb…… right?

    @BryanB

    Go enlist with the USMC for a 6 year contract, then come back and tell me how well Marines have it.

    While you’re at it, sign up for an infantry MOS in the 03xx range. When you’re done, come back and tell me what marketable skills you have for the civilian economy other than working as a private contractor (mercenary).

    Come back from that and let me know what your job prospects are in the current economy after years of losing your best friends, getting shot at, getting blown the %^&@ up and maybe even losing an arm or leg or your own.

    “I bugs me that they want that much for an entry level job.”

    ROFL. That’s the most generous statement I’ve heard in a long time.

    @All:

    You realize his comments were in jest right?

    @Mod:

    Go read “Is Multiculturalism Good for Women” by Susan Moller Okin. She’s a HARDCORE liberal and she’ll give you dozen of examples. Like a Japanese guy who “honor” killed his wife and got away with it because his lawyer argued that we had no right to impose our morals on his life.

    @imperative:

    Fully explained and understood.

    The question in all this comes in at where you draw the line between a human being and a “ball of cells”.

    For me this has always be a somewhat difficult question. The Roman Catholic version of things, that it’s a human being as soon as sperm touches at egg, is clear cut an unambiguous. However, I find it difficult to call a few cells rapidly dividing to be a “human being” because cancer cells do the same thing, as do a myriad of others, but at the same time once traits become definable I oppose abortion (you had plenty of time to decide).

    The question of where life begins will never actually be settled.

    Therefore I think the answer is to go back a step further. If you don’t want to contemplate an abortion; don’t get pregnant. This is where personal responsibility comes in.

    There are a lot of options for avoiding unwanted pregnancy. Celibacy, condoms, birth control pills, the patch, IUD’s and half a dozen others are all reasonable approaches.

    Having unprotected sex is going to happen, period. It just is. It’s happened as long as human civilization has existed and it will continue. However, given the current state of science on the subject getting pregnant is a choice, followed in some cases by another choice: abortion.

    Abortion wouldn’t be a choice that had to be faced if people had some personal responsibility about sexuality.

    The libertarian philosophy, just as that of the Founders, requires personal responsiblity.

    Lol, sent the grammar SS after yourself I see.

  • [1] September 27, 2014 at 3:02pm

    I would need you to further clarify what you mean by your second sentence before I could either agree or disagree with you.

  • [1] September 27, 2014 at 3:01pm

    I don’t think it’s fair to paint with that broad a brush.

    Some SoCon’s certainly want to see their particular views forced on other people, but I get the feeling that most of them just want people left alone. What brings them out in force is when they perceive the government is coming after them.

    “That’s bringing to the forefront questions about whether religious conservatives who oppose abortion and gay marriage can co-exist with libertarians, many of whom hold more liberal social views and oppose the government regulating anything.”

    The answer for both groups lies in the libertarian view on these topics. Get the government out of abortion and marriage. I don’t really care if someone wants to get an abortion because they made a mistake. I think it’s wrong and disgusting, but as long as I’m not paying for it; knock yourself out. I also don’t care if gays want a piece of paper that says something, just don’t ask religious folks to acknowledge it as a union sanctified by God and we’re good.

    Also libertarians don’t “oppose the government regulating anything”. We agree that a certain amount of regulation is necessary, but feel that the current state of affairs is that the government tries to regulate EVERYTHING which is damaging to the economy and freedom. This notion that we’re anarchists comes from the Left, don’t act, talk or walk like the Left or we might assume you’re ON the Left.

    We believe that government should shrink back to it’s Constitutionally defined roles and, for the most part, stay there. It has no business requiring a license to cut hair or telling people when or where they can pray.

    The rift between libertarians and social conservatives can be easily seen on The Blaze, where Libertarians, arguing for 95% the same as SoCon’s, get called leftists.

    Past deeds have no bearing on current actions.

    The actual science on this says its waste of time and money.

    The EPA is looking for ways to justify its continued existence and that’s about it.

  • [6] September 26, 2014 at 6:31pm

    OOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • [6] September 26, 2014 at 6:28pm

    I don’t care what the reason is.

    My tax money supports that park, therefore I am part owner and I will do what I please with my camera on land that I am owner or part owner of.

    A perfect illustration of this is again, mercury… in fish!

    Tuna has been canned for well over 100 years. So some enterprising chemists looked at the hysteria surrounding mercury compounds in Tuna.

    They gathered a number of samples of fresh caught and canned Tuna and compared them to a sample of canned Tuna from the late 1800′s which a museum was gracious enough to provide.

    Their findings; canned Tuna from the late 1800′s had significantly more Mercury compounds in it than modern canned OR fresh caught Tuna from the modern era.

    Now Mercury poisoning was known back then, as it happened in industrial settings, as was the treatment: raw eggs and milk. (Today, the standard treatment; mix 3 raw eggs with a quart of milk. Drink it.)

    Since Mercury poisoning and its symptoms were known at the time this Tuna was canned in the 1800′s and people were NOT reporting widespread Mercury poisoning from Tuna and the fact that levels are now significantly lower, the EPA action is useless.

    The point is this: “significantly more Mercury compounds” doesn’t really mean anything beyond the instrumentation and arithmetic used to calculate the percentages because the amount found is still too low to be consider any sort of hazard.

    The amounts now are significantly lower (as compared to previous amounts that were non-hazardous), but NOW the EPA wants us to spend money to cut that amount further, but it won’t be THAT expensive. Waste is still waste. That money can be put to better uses.

    @Brainz:

    Whether or not their concern is genuine is immaterial.

    Whether they possess the scientific knowledge to understand what they’re doing is the issue at hand, and in the vast majority of cases the government has shows its self to be woefully behind the curve in understanding the scientific data they are looking at.

    For example, the banning of Mercury based thermometers is hysterical nonsense, as is the current state of government response to a small Mercury spill.

    These days, if a kid brings a Mercury thermometer to school and it gets broken the school is evacuated and a HAZMAT team comes out to do the clean up (yes, this has really happened).

    This is beyond idiotic. Even if the kids then ate the Mercury it wouldn’t harm them, the biggest threat to their health at that point would be the potential that they ingested shards of glass. Dump some Sulfur powder on it, then sweep or suck it up and be done with it. You don’t need a HAZMAT team, you need a high school chemistry teacher and some common sense.

    This issue today mainly comes down to what is detectable vs. what is a reasonable concern. We’ve gotten very good at detecting insignificant amounts of something in a larger sample. The fact that it’s detectable doesn’t mean it’s a threat.

    Paracelsus was right “The poison is in the dose” and the government has made a habit of freaking out about doses so low that just 20 years ago they were undetectable but still present.
