    That is why law works only on the inside.
    If lawmakers don't follow spirit of law, if the laws are rewritten to confuse and to make them a stumbling block for the people then by natural law of existence the people will lose trust that the law is lawful, divinely proscribed, or even of any worth.
    So we will get anarchy or authoritarianism because the solutions man has are more and more law until everyone and anyone can fit the criminal label.

    People who agree with strict law for criminals will cry when they have to steal an Apple to survive and get pilloried by jury of peers with all the rotten produce you can catch with your teeth. Then again the captured thief is no longer starving.
    And the scared citizens can release some of that fear stress by joining the crowd thirsty for the blood of someone being punished.
    Germans have names for these evil feelings of joy.
    And that probably means they have a lot of experience in that dept.
    Because transgression runs 4 generations deep in DNA.
    Experts usually give stuff names upon discovery or affinity.
    So it's not a surprise that Germans have specific words for things that we would consider morally reprehensible.
    Germans not so much.

    When USA fought for tea it won its independence against the world's evil empire.
    We beat the English but we continued to be English.
    Well we first went a little French, Dutch, Spanish, etc...
    But like 40 years later we all became English again.
    Hey I thought we won that one?
    Oh but then there was the sequel at the end of our journey through the wilderness.

    Hey remember when we won wars against the commies?
    Remember when we won against the German and Roman fascists?

    Nazis lost, but more neo Nazis than ever was paleo Nazis.
    And we took on the "good Germans" to help us with the commies who had helped us with the Germans.
    Like the lawnmower man with the new grafted on arm of a psycho killer.
    What to expect but to sing hail to the chief. Sieg heil!

    And like all ravenous cunning beasts Rome is at the door of perception waiting for its crack of daylight.
    Rome will have its day in the sun no doubt. With all her allies rapidly opening it's doors and coming with. These animals fight in pacts.

    The great superpower that killed the Russian bear only wounded it.
    Stripped of communist ideology the true Rosh of Russia's aristocratic ambitions will play.
    And the bears commie blood was lapped up by most nations.
    The Trojan horse ruse works on people who like their desires met and then rushing attack that comes later becomes a slaughter of drunken fools still believing themselves impregnable.
    But now with child what is nation to do?
    Sieges are tough and most if the time the baby becomes the last supper.
    And those nations that devour their young have no right to a future.
    And therefore cannot exist because of shame and guilt and the evil that beings over time.
    It is a nation/people committing auto death.
    Might as well hang from a tree with your guts spilling out.

    Bible was burned and banned because folks forget how to see past what they see.
    Words are scary, they can only do harm. That becomes the feeling when crazy looking people talk crazy sounding words from a book filled with crazy and dangerous evil things like dragons that will come and destroy with fires of hell.
    How much did Godzilla make this past weekend?
    Oh but Godzilla is just a movie, lol. Not if you are Japanese.
    Then again the bombs dropped a long time ago.

    It's not facts, but any times facts are useless when they become cold and boring like statistics.
    So then you find yourself a good Jew or pretty much any type of Asian. They good with all that important record keeping.
    The west is best but to set on the west it must rise from the east where they keep the coordinates.

    Hey that German wars we kept winning.
    So glad we did or else we might all be speaking German.
    Funny story, we already do sprach the tsung of the fatherlands.

    Mother n father wanna fight over spilled milk.
    The mountain of battle is over here.
    Landscape scarred like mars in the west and buried in mounds in east.
    Nations converge and concentrate.
    We are the first third world continent.
    This is the ancient battlegrounds.
    So it will be again.

    Of course the people shooting them are the problem but you don't ever see a guy who shoots people with 1 gun, they almost always have 3, 4 or 5. If your not a collector why so many? Also why automatic weapons and high capacity clips? No reason for it whatsoever. As for being useless that is not my point but shouldn't there be a uniform set of rules for ALL states? As for Brown and Obama, does your opinion have anything to do with them being Dems because I think you are completely of base with that opinion but that is obviously subjective and I agree to disagree. thanks for the respect as well SC!

    I guess it goes back to some primal, instinctive fear and hatred, but I wonder if it's just me and what I grew up with or what....but does anyone find the joy and elation I am from Hunter pence's scooter being stolen?
    Ha fucking hah I say, like Stanley Kowalski...

    Think Outside the Box

    You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:

    1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.

    2. An old friend who once saved your life.

    3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

    Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think, before you continue reading.

    This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.

    The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. She simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams."

    Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations. Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

    However, the correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery, have sex with the perfect partner against the bus stop, then drive off with the old friend for some beers.

    God, I just love happy endings.

    I have about 7-8 guns. My father has 20-25, my uncle who has all of ours stored in his gun safe has probably 100.

    They all have a purpose and and are used for those purposes. For instance, I have a 20 gauge Remington shotgun I use that for doves and quail. My 12 gauge is my duck gun, my 30-06 deer, elk and big game. The others just variations on those purposes. Maybe I shoot easier with my other 12 or 20.

    I have 1 pistol but have never hunted with it. Purely personal protection. I really don't see the affinity for the AR-15 however. As a former Marine I can tell you I would gladly qualify with my Weatherby Mark V 30-06 than that POS service rifle. It's innacurate, easily jammed and gets dirty quickly.

    Probably more than you wanted to hear or know.

    I would also like to add that Brown and Obama are narcissistic whores for money. The gun lobby doesn't donate to democrats.if they did you could guarantee they wouldn't push "gun control." After all millions of innocent children are murdered each year and it's called a "choice" or a "right". Abortion kills exponentially more than guns drunk driving, cigarettes etc... But we never hear about it because it's a right. A right to murder poor inner city kids. Btw you all know that most abortions are of minority kids. Needless to say the pro abortion lobby supports democrats financially so they allow murders like the one in Philly who snipped live births spinal cords to go free.

    Eugenics is here.

    I was enjoying your perspective about the firearms and as the son of a cop I grew up around guns and taught my own kids how to shoot early on.

    But then you go all Rube on us and link womens rights to minority exploitation ?!? Or vice versa?? WTF??

    The woman has the right to her body. Period.

    Not my business. Not the State's business.


    If more women having abortions 'happen' to be minority I hardly see that as relevant as a reason for a woman having or not having a right to her own body.


    Do yourself a favor and ignore the polarizing lies from the fools on either side of the aisle. Lest you come off sounding all racist and sexist and shit.


    Life is far more pragmatic... and never quite so clear cut black and white... as your words intone.

    Ok so if you end the life of someone that is 1 day old it's obviously murder right?

    That same heart at 1 day old was beating at 7 weeks old. So by definition stopping that same heart would not be murder? Can men do what they want with their bodies? Can we rape commit incest or impose our will on others? That's our bodies! And no one has a right to tell us what we can do with our bodies right?

    I can only assume you don't have children. I could never look either of my sons in the eye and tell then they were ever a "choice."

    Totally off the point, but - Ah, I had a 20 gauge Remington pump as a teen. Great on the clay pidgeon range. Challenging for ducks.

    I think the subject of abortion, even though it's the famous "off topic thread", is a lock and loaded weapon, which advocating or not is one too.
    For me, abortion is like talking about poliics and religion at Thanksgiving dinner...very volatile and emotional.
    I've never seen "discussing" it at length do anything but create lasting riffs and barriers between people...talk about a "no win" situation...
    So how about those Dodgers, eh?

    Orel is just so good as a announcer.
    The three guy format gets a bit chatty I think, and sometimes integral parts of the game get lost during it, or minimally mentioned at all, but whatever happens with Vinny when it does, I like Orel staying on as a classy, inteligent and insightful observer and commenter.
    I hope they keep him around for years.
    No one will take Vinny's place, that's for sure, but a team like the LAD should have a guy like him.
    Plus he's from NJ, proving not everyone from here is Tony Soprano.

    I was taught to respect guns, as well. Though I do remember rambling out to an abandoned barn with a couple of high school buddies where we attempted to shoot barn swallows on the wing. Of course, you could never hit a barn swallow, not in a million years, and everyone else must hit the deck while the shooter tried to get the impossible bead on the ever-swooping bird. Gun barrels gone wild. Yup, somehow survived high school.
