    What does the law say in Florida about unintentional accidental exposing a legally concealed firearm? It is different in different states. I believe there was a story about an over reacting police officer who saw a firearm that was accidently exposed when the driver reached into his van to get registration/insurance cards. the cop actually got in trouble, and the gun owner a nice little check.

    I can’t say what I’d do. if the guy tackling me is screaming “hes got a gun, hes got a gun” you may elect to just relax and go with it if you believe the guy is just being an idiot. Everyone has to make that decision at the time with the information they have. There were little kids around. There were other bystanders there. Other people jumped on the guy. If it is obvious to the “common person” that they didn’t understand and they weren’t really trying to hurt you, let the cops sort out the details, then get your gun back as they cart the guy off in a squad car. If you start shooting, you are going to have to shoot multiple people in a crowded entrance to a busy store. You are responsible for every bullet. Even the ones that strike your attacker, go thru and hit the kid behind them you didn’t see.

    AND would have been perfectly legal to do so. What I don’t get is why several others jumped on and continued to hold the guy down after they took his gun from him. The police should charge the others involved with battery, false imprisonment as well. The victim also has a very good law suit against Walmart because employees helped and didn’t demand the attackers release the gun owner. Jumped from behind, how would you know it isn’t a knockout game and the guy isn’t going to kill you. He is lucky the gun owner didn’t have situational awareness. Jump me like that, and its my wife that will probably shoot you.

    He did live in the middle early on in life. He did live modestly. He did practice what he preaches. AND BECAUSE HE DID, he was able to invest heavily and become insanely rich.

    No it isn’t an example of ‘do what ….”

    Most millionaires in the US are ‘self-made’ and don’t inherit their fortune. Most rich people in the US live modestly within their budgets.

    What this guy is saying is that if your annual income is $35K, you shouldn’t be living like someone who makes $100K or $200K. Thats what most people do. They buy homes they can barely afford, new cars, and fancy cell phones with expensive plans. Most people rack up huge debt.

    If you are struggling financially, you SHOULD take the advice of someone who is rich and is self-made. He didn’t always live like a billionaire. Chances are he has always lived very modestly for the income he was earning at the time. Of course a modest billionaire has his own jet.

    You will never get to be a millionaire, if you live beyond your means. I live in a nice neighborhood and make a very good living. Most all my neighbors have jobs that pay 1/2 of what I earn. I don’t know how they afford to live in a house like mind. They certainly are not investing 20% of their income towards retirement. My guess is that they are not putting anything back beyond what their employer does for them.

    Let’s be a little realistic here
    #1: does anyone really think there will be any significant numbers of Vets actually taking advantage of this program.
    #2: as Vets relying on the VA system, we all know what putting in a request means… Fill out the paperwork, then get your lock 7 years later. I’ve been retired for almost three years and I’m still waiting on my appointment for a hearing aid.
    #3: the VA doesn’t have the money for other medical devices. Therefore ‘waiting lists’. This HAS ALWAYS been the issue, not just during Obama’s time, or Bush or even Reagan… If as a Vet I really wanted a gun lock, I’d go to Walmart.

    They have already been doing that

    You don’t need evidence when you’ve already made up your mind. besides those blacks who testified against brown, will all be dead soon anyways. One already is.

    No it was a smart nurse. The nurses were probably going to all get fired for letting the patient get hurt by the police or other staff members who had to tackle the patient. she just wanted proof that he was attacking them in the first place. Probably doesn’t matter, nurses will be fired anyways.

    I’ve been stabbed, punched, hit with a bar off a ortho bed, spit on, had a urine bag busted over my head by patients. Most nurses with any experience have had to deal with crazy/confuse patients. DTs are the worst. And yet any time a patient ends up with a bruise the automatic response is to disicipline the nurse. Not saying there aren’t bad nurses who need to be fired, just that it isn’t ALWAYS the nurse’s fault

    I’m a parent. And toddlers throw fits. And so do “selfimportant d-bags”. For those who criticize her “hurting ears” clearly you’ve never heard some toddlers shrill. Right behind you in the checkout isle, ya that would be annoying.

    Its called freedom of speech. She can be self-important all she likes and say what she likes. And the mom can inform her that she couldn’t care less about her opinion and to take a hike.

    What a mom cant do is attack the self-important idiot. And yes idiot, when you have a hostile person come at you in the parking lot, go back intothe store, or know how to fight.

    sure you did, and thats why you only hire uneducated people in your company, to handle your taxes, why you only talk to buddies about that mole thats growing on your back and don’t go to the doctor.

  • [2] November 2, 2014 at 4:54pm

    Go ahead TrickyDick keep that attitude. Those of us with educations, degees and professional licenses will keep billing you for that price difference.

    A degree only gets you in the door/noticed. your work ethic, creativity and dedication is what keeps your job.

    The CPD should be abolished. True debates held by a neutral group (I say let the League of Women Voters take it back), is the only way it should be done

  • October 31, 2014 at 7:04pm

    The Commission on Presidential Debates, CPD, will never allow a 3rd party to take part in the Presidential Debates. It is an organization comprised of Democrats and Republicans working closely together to ensure that only Republicans and Democrats are only represented during the debates. Prior to 1987, The League of Women Voters hosted the debates. They didn’t use questions that the candidates themselves gave to the host of the debate. The CPD is nothing more than political commercial with canned questions and answers that each candidate is prepared for. The CPD will not allow another party to participate, and Republican and Democrat candidates won’t participate in any other debate other than their rigged one. And TV networks can’t air the debate if they don’t agree to exclude any other debates that include other candidates from Tea Party, Constitution Party, Libertarian, Green Party, etc, etc…. So in the end the average American that will only watch TV for a couple of hours for their “informed decision” will only know about the 2 candidates: Republican and Democrat.

    Not in anymore, but if I had been sent I would be upset if they didnt quarantine me and protect my family.

    Does Nurse Hickox deserve to be called a “hero” for serving others in a terrible situation. Sure….. In 21 days.

    The military has a duty to protect the soldiers as best they can. The military also has a duty to the families (so a 21 day quarantine). The soldiers didn’t choose on their own to go to Africa to fight ebola. They were ordered to go. When you order someone into harm’s way, the obligation is different.

    Besides, whats the big deal, its 3 weeks sitting on her butt. Obama has paid almost half the country to do that already for months and months through welfare and extended unemployment.

    My son had a project in school where they had to exercise their 1st Amendment by publically speek about the war in Iraq and Pres Bush. Every kid got up and spoke about how it was bad, how Bush lied about WMDs (NYT article last week didn’t exist). When my son got up on his turn, he started to talk about how soldiers were helping and that his daddy was there, helping people. He was told to sit down and shut up, no wanted to hear that garbage. Upon my return and brief discussion with the school officials about that and other things, we’ve homeschooled since.

    What I don’t get is that there are plenty of examples of racial injustice for Jackson and Sharpton etc… to point out, YET they want to use Brown and Travvon Martin as their flags.

    Want to talk about injustice, don’t place drug dealers, thieves and thugs on your high thrones. Might as well use Ray Rice as a marriage counselor.

  • [2] October 15, 2014 at 6:38pm

    I thought Iraq didn’t have any weapons of mass destruction? Isn’t that what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC etc, etc told us for years and how Bush “lied to us”. Now the NYTimes releases a big article today on how there were WMDs and how soldiers were injured by them.

    hmmmmm….

    Go ahead smart guy, don’t go to college. Compete with illegal aliens for jobs and see how that works out for you. Meanwhile I’ll be that guy that is 20 years younger and your boss.

    Now… choosing a tech school like plumbing, electrician etc.. is a totally different thing. Then again you are choosing an income level as well. Unless of course you start up your own business (which is where you really make money), then you can hire whomever you like.

    in the end it isn’t about salary, it is about not hating what you spend the majority of your waking hours doing.

    The difference is that the Americans that did this were actually there in Israel. They actually got to see how they live. The constant threat. As I am writing this post it has been only 14 hours since Israel has been under a rocket attack. (http://israelhasbeenrocketfreefor.com/

    HELLO THATS TODAY!!! Israel gets attacked almost every day. The Israeli sailors are up against a very real enemy that wants them all dead. Who tries daily…

    No one here in the States knows that daily threat to life (except maybe in Detroit, and other gun free zones). It is one thing to have an opinion on the internet. It is a completely different thing when you see it first hand
