Re: MO: Mom murdered in front of 3 children by carjacker

Another thing this illustrates, that many people don't truly understand, is how absolutely cold these guys are. They will kill you just as casually as you'd drink a cup of coffee, utterly without emotion. It doesn't matter if you're a child, rich, poor, disabled, begging on your knees, or anything e...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

There are articles in the latest Time Magazine related to Trump's lies and his undermining the judicial and other governmental systems. In one article, nonpartisan PolitiFact noted that Trump's statements are almost 69% false. mostly false, or "pants on fire". Only 69%? Wow. Best president we've ha...

Re: Children of the greatest generation

Sounds a lot like my mom, who could have been one of the characters in The Grapes of Wrath. Dust bowl, stuff piled on a truck, going to work in the fields in California, the whole nine yards. I remember some of that stuff, but not all of it. I do remember playing outside all day, every day, until we...

Re: Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner's Commission Against Gun Violence

Good grief. Where would you get those "4"? And I don't see a single person on that list who would be factually knowledgeable about reducing gun violence. MOMS, March for our Lives kids, rabbis and archbishops, lawyers, various women's organizations, etc.

Re: Shooting Situation at Rolling Oaks Mall San Antonio

I can see why some people would be touchy about what happened, if it happened the way I think it did. The 2nd robber "ran through the mall shooting" as he escaped. The perception may be that the LTC holder "started it all" by shooting the 1st robber, and if he hadn't done so, all those additional pe...

Re: And Then There is Boulder CO

Oh, boy. So then they're going to do a big sweep through all those violent Boulder gangs (it's infested with them) and take all their illegal guns? Whew, I feel better now.... :cool:

Re: O.F. Mossberg discontinues sales to Dick's

I'm not sure any of this will impact Dick's all that much anyway. From what I've seen, Dick's is implanted mainly in upscale-ish shopping areas, catering primarily to Democrat yuppies shopping for the latest overpriced designer "gear."

The Boy Scouts are now officially history

The Boy Scouts of America has formally announced its name change, to "Scouts BSA." They will no longer use "Boy" so they can be gender-neutral, and will accept both girls and boys (as well as LBGTwhatevers). Never thought I'd see the day. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/05/02/607678097/...

Re: Banks getting in on the action

Wow. It's hard to believe we might get to a point where you couldn't have some cash under the mattress - when there's really no such thing as "money" any more, it's just bits and bytes stored on a computer chip somewhere.

New Jersey takes it even lower

New Jersey is notorious for suffocating gun laws, which include things like requiring permits to buy firearms. Now the Democrat-dominated Senate and a Democrat governor are expected to sign more restrictions into law. They include banning any ammunition that can penetrate body armor (there goes virt...

That's for sure. If the media decided he wasn't a ratings booster, they'd toss him like a used napkin.
