    thanks to fruitaco1, I’ll bet argyle58 has learned from their mistake and will never again spell “analyze” incorrectly!

    Think Yoshi is gonna be my new symbol of resistance! Kid has obviously been taught to not go silently into the night!

    They should rename it “Only the rich can own handguns” bill. See how well it goes over then.

    I swear I saw a deer almost darting out in front of him.

    And why does a town with a population of 754 need a police force?

    I would have smiled and thanked her too. It looks a heck of a lot better than I can do!

    Guess this is how you turn lemons into lemonade? Or maybe that’s “Hard” Lemonade into lemons?

    “Domesticated honeybees in a tree.”? Who keeps “domesticated” bees in a tree? Answer, they weren’t domesticated!

    It’s a risk I am also willing to take. Don’t trust safety’s, too easy to accidentally grab a trigger. Don’t want that thing anywhere near ready to fire until it’s pointed where I want it.

    Sad story and the reason I NEVER keep a round chambered. If a 2-year old were to get a hold of my gun (which they won’t), they’d never be able to get the slide back. Had a personal defense instructor tell me otherwise, but I’d rather take the risk of needing to chamber than risk an unintentional shooting.

    Thought that removing bees from structures in Texas was pretty bad. Hot, cramped, covered in honey with bees trying to kill you. Accentuated by the occasional fall from a ladder. Gladly do that all day vs. having to climb into a cement mixer!

    Am I the only one that can’t figure out what flag they’re waiving in the photo?

    Challenge them. Ask them what they need and why. If it’s money for gas, offer to buy them gas. If it’s money for a bus ticket, offer to meet them at the bus station. If they want food, offer to go pick them something up. This will 100% filter out the needy from the typical “pan handlers” as the needy will do what it takes and take you up on your offer. I’ve helped fill a couple of gas tanks and provided some meals but even more, watched people switch and ask me to just give them the money–ain’t gonna happen.

    Well said!

    Having been on both ends of this scenario myself, it’s far more difficult to ask for help than it is to give it yet I argue that giving has the greatest reward. I have had more than one Christmas that just showed up on my doorstep. We’re good people. If you want to help don’t ask if people need help, ask them what they would like most right now. They’ll tell you that. If it’s something extravagant, they likely haven’t hurt enough yet. I remember a friend asking me what I wanted most one Christmas and my answer was to be able to pay the mortgage. My mortgage was paid and presents under the tree from people I had rarely even talked with.

    God bless ProZacDose! It takes a real man to put his family before his pride!

    While I love to read all of the “Big Oil” conspiracies, I fear that the truth may be a bit more sobering. While I do have to admit I haven’t researched the fundamentals, my gut is telling me that what we are seeing is the result of that 34% not affected by the price of oil, which is bad. If I’m correct, we’re seeing that gas prices have been able to remain high as stimulus cash dumps into the economy, meanwhile demand for oil for non-fuel purposes is falling. In other words, the demand for oil to make stuff (like plastics and other core goods) is dropping. Tell-tale sign that the economy is about to slow, again.

    How long before riots are blamed on this?

    WTF? This guy must have the worst job in the world trying to spin this crap! I don’t recall seeing Egypt, Libyan, French, German, etc. flags on fire. These are not protests, these are attacks and our response has been shameful!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama fakes an injury!

    There doesn’t need to be. This was announced as, “open-ended”. This can go on for ever.
