Try a "progressive," this somehow makes sense to the intellectually and morally challenged.
Tank, you took the words right out of my mouth. Libs/progressives are the devil on earth. These people including all politicians are evil, destructive and A$$wholes! Plain and simple!
This is a legal issue. The constitution protects people, not humans, period. If you want to use the law to force others to comply with your religious belief, you need the law on your side, is is not. Their is no protection extended to a cell, egg, sperm, embryo or fetus. These are scientific terms, needed because it is not a child, baby or person yet. Although the religious tend to be scientifically illiterate, There is a profound difference. Religion can't be allowed to violate someone's rights.
Until birth, when you are named, printed and given a certificate that proves you are a person, with the legal protections that come with that, it is part of someone's body and OUT OF BOUNDS in the same way you cannot be allowed to forcibly remove someone's kidney, irregardless of what a religion thinks.
Your analogy is flawed because eggs of species on the endangered list are protected by law because they are separate individuals, considered offspring of that species, and expressly named in the act.
People are covered by other laws, only after they are born. Don't like it? change the constitution.

Since it is a grenade which is deployed by hand, it is a hand grenade. It’s just not a fragmentation grenade. Though civilians think of a hand grenade as only the frag grenade, any of us with a military background who payed attention know there are several types of hand grenades to include this non lethal type. That being said, you can’t be serious in the opinion that the police should not have access to non lethal riot control gear, can you?

As the USPS is micromanaged by congress, they have all the business maneuverability of a rudderless battleship being towed by a jet ski. They are saddled with billions in payments to a fund retirement benefits 75 years out. If your household were required by law to prefund expenditures anticipated into the year 2090, would you be able to keep your power on or feed your family?

I’ve been a government employee for half my life, and I take offense to many of the comments here. However, I understand how easy it is to fall into the habit of making generalized statements. In my 21 years in the army, I can’t tell you how many times I disparaged you “stupid civilians” as a group when I was remarking on the stupidity of just one. In every walk of life, there are those who excell, and there are slackers. Bear in mind that when you disparage a group for the actions of one, you also disparage a whole lot of people who bust their backs and do not deserve the crap you dish out. The individual who raised the flag up side down was either negligent at his duty or intentionally did it for an unknown reason. Try not to think in the collective terms that the left so love.

Get your facts straight, chowder head. “Funneling money into” means what, exactly? You seem to imply that the post office is budgeted with tax money. That has not been the case since the postal reform act signed by NIXON, for Christ’s sake! The reason for post office deficits can be summed up with two facts. 1. For almost ten years, we have been required by the government to prefund retirement benefits for employees 75 years in advance. Without that requirement which no other business entity has forced upon them, we would be in the black. 2. Any steps we feel we have to take to get out of the red with this prefunding requirement must be approved by congress. If every time you wanted to change prices, close a facility, or alter your operation in any way at your company you needed congressional authorization, just how long do you think it would take for Congress to screw YOU over? We all know just how well they run their own budget. In short, we’re being screwed over by the government just as much as everyone else is or more.
Another issue is salaries are insane for the managment, post masters up the ladder. They in large part got positions because of who they knew or blew. They have no idea of day to day affairs to run the offices much less the whole of the U.S.P.S! Then the union affairs and payouts because someone bitches because they got help from another craft/ known as crossing craft ex. Rural helps city side. I see it as your a team TEAM, GET YOUR ASSES IN
THERE and get the job done, dont like it leave. The pay for the carriers are okay, reason rural carriers pay for vehicle and maintenance, gas and insurance out of there pockets, given a small tithe not really in line with there cost, they are the workers that grease the cogs, the
managment is problematic.
Sorry rant off.
These are certainly the talking points straight from your union brochures......but pull up an income statement for the USPS in the last 10 years that would have shown you in the black if you didn't have the funding requirements to actually fund your retirements instead of overpromising, spending future money, and then stealing it from the taxpayers later.
You think the SS ponzi scheme is a good deal for you....and are outraged that you can't have the same ponzi retirement scheme at the post office.
Too bad we don't force this on EVERY government agency instead of the thievery that is being committed today.
Geez, t-boy-sorry for causing you to go all "postal" over my comment. Hope you feel better getting that off your chest. Maybe you can pillage through some packages tomorrow in plain brown wrapping that will put you in a better mood.

Don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that this kid kept the attacker at bay long enough to escape. Am I the only dad who has ever taught their daughter that if some guy tries to grab them, you throw an elbow at them hard then hit him in the nuts as hard as you can and run? When I read the part about Israeli martial arts, I was kind of expecting something a bit more exotic and…I don’t know…Spectacular? Kudos to the kid for taking care of herself and not waiting for some “official” to help.

I used the chemical spray technique once when I was a kid. Somebody tried to break into my house through an open window. I sprayed a disinfectant in his eyes and he fell back out to the ground and took off. I’d recommend wasp spray over ant spray, though. The wasp spray gives you more stand off distance and lessens the chance of blow back. Though I haven’t tried it, I bet if you touched off the stream with a lighter, it would make a pretty good flame thrower. Don’t try this at home, kids.

Its obvious to me that the girls rant was staged by the “artist” filming street preachers. Note how she glances directly at the camera during her performance. Enough said.

Though I hate her politically, I can’t laugh at this or find any joy in it. It’s just not right to throw anything at an old woman.
Woman, yes, technically, yes.
Please refer to answer number two.
It said the thrower was middle-aged. Close enough for a fair fight. I bet Hitlery wasn't worried about the ages of the bodies in her and Billy's wake.

They already changed Easter vacation to spring break. Now in most districts, it is nowhere near holy week or Easter. Let them change this now and you will soon see “winter break” begin on New year’s day or sometime in February to save on heating costs in the coldest month. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

Let me get this straight. She had a restraining order out on him, then went to HIS house without police. She would have been advised to do so under such a no contact order. She did not think he was home. Who opened the door? Did she unlawfully enter HIS house? If he answered the door, she should have left right then. Too many questions I need answered, but on it’s face this does not sound like a justified use of a weapon. All things considered, I believe 20 years is too much unless the charge was attempted murder and was proven in court.
Charles6 over on another thread said "The World is laughing at us." I see why. If this is a "clash" with Police then the Lingerie Bowl is "slobberknocking" old school full contact hard nosed NFL gridiron action--with stretcher bounties.
Geesh, we did better than this at VPI when the Pot Heads were pissed that a Narcs on Campus rumor had caused them all to flush their dope prematurely.

Clearly, a reader of at least one of Glenn Beck’s books.
This recognition is LONG over due!
To call Rush 'Rock and Rollers' is like calling the great Tenor Pavoriti a pop singer.
Congats Guys!!! You've earned it!
My all time favorite Rush song. 'New World Man' or as I like to call it 'The Obama theme song'
This was recorded in 1983. Enjoy!!!
He's a rebel and a runner
He's a signal turning green
He's a restless young romantic
Wants to run the big machine
He's got a problem with his poisons
But you know he'll find a cure
He's cleaning up his systems
To keep his nature pure
Learning to match the beat of the Old World man
Learning to catch the heat of the Third World man
He's got to make his own mistakes
And learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know what's right
But young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
But weak enough to lose it --
He's a New World man...
He's a radio receiver
Turned to factories and farms
He's a writer and arranger
And a young boy bearing arms
He's got a problem with his power
With weapons on patrol
He's got to walk a fine line
And keep his self-control
Trying to save the day for the Old World man
Trying to pave the way for the Third World man
He's not concerned with yesterday
He knows constant change is here today
He's noble enough to know what's right
But weak enough not to choose it
He's wise enough to win the world
But fool enough to lose it --
He's a New World man...
