  1. So yea, allowing guns for police and military but what is going to stop them from taking every other right from you?

    The level of stupidity is high in your thought process. I mean most felons commit 90% of murders and they can't have guns..

    Do you think anything is going to change if we just ban guns? I do... A lot more crime and an even more out of control government.


    Also, as far as the MAOA-L gene its pretty well understood but what isn't understood is the exact statistics on violent crime correlation because the government has basically blocked data collection on the subject. The reason is simple, MAOA-L problems are significantly higher in the African American community. Its scientific proof of genetic aggression differences between races. Blacks are 9x more likely to have the "warrior gene" then White. Asians have almost no chance of having the gene.

    P.S. You can only get the gene from your mother.

  2. I'm going to give you a sleeper name for VP or a Pres run if HC bags out.

    Sherrod Brown. right state, middle of the road guy. reaches across the isle.

    And more and more i'm convinced Portman is running for VP.

    Sherrod Brown is anything but middle of the road. He pushes through some of the worst legislation I have ever seen (example Monica Durban law). He is another Obama from an extremely liberal city as well.

    That being said, Rand Paul will be the next president. The people will vote in droves in conservative counties because the base will be extremely energized by his nomination.

  3. Let's pretend I'm only half as smart as you and would like to have all this SPLAINED.

    I can't wait to hear how we should fund the govt.

    Well, I am a pretty big supporter of the fair tax.

    People who want to tax corporations or businesses don't seem to understand its a tax on the people. I mean where do you think corporations get the money to pay the tax? They get it through an increase in the cost of the goods they sell. However, what makes this far worse isn't just this increase in cost of product but because of it many companies simply are not based out of the united states. That or they simply use tax loopholes to lower the corporate rate which is what every large corporation does to survive. However, what it effectively does is kill competition because smaller companies don't have the legal or tax lobbyist power of large corporations so they end up paying a much higher rate and thus have higher business cost simply because the government is incompetent. There is a reason we don't fix the tax loopholes because it would kill the economy almost instantly all I ask is that we don't hurt companies at all let them thrive and let competition actually happen on a level playing field.

  4. This is the bullshit that needs to stop:::

    Two weeks after Twitter filed the paperwork for a planned billion-dollar IPO, we learn that it's poised to take advantage of the same international tax loopholes as other large firms like Apple, Google, and Amazon. Citing Twitter Ireland documents, Valleywag reports that the company has all the requisite parts for the "Double Irish and Dutch Sandwich" — a scheme that can minimize a company’s tax exposure by enabling it to lease its intellectual property to foreign subsidiaries. The idea is to turn foreign profits into tax-free revenues, and everything from the existence of Irish shell companies to their Cayman Islands home base give ample insight into Twitter’s strategy.

    Why? Its absolutely retarded that we tax companies in the first place.

  5. See, reading comprehension is fundamental. That's why you read all of the posts and speak to ALL of them.

    You say it has nothing to do with TM? Ok, fair enough. Then show me how that's an issue. Show me how law-abiding young blacks are being gunned down. Show me what you're talking about. Because unless you're talking specifically about TM (which you were, you just don't want to admit that you were using him to build your argument off) it's a bullshit question.

    See, I can do it too. I can post some story about how a white-trash dude gets mugged by a black guy,in a drug deal gone wrong. I can then ask "what do young white males have to do to, to not get mugged???" It's a bull-shit question that has no bearing on the case at hand.

    Prove to me that young LAW-ABIDING blacks are being gunned down just because they're black. Show me a story where it happened.

    Its always the same old story with blacks.. I remember this quite well..

  6. didn't read it all, but my view.

    it all starts and stops with him being told not pursue. Everything after was a result of his personal profiling..

    Little known fact. GZ has called 911 47 times over the last 6 years on black kids in the neighborhood. I think he had enough and wanted to lower the numbers.

    either way, i said he wasn't going to jail.

    First, it was 46 calls and only 17 were 911 call the rest non-emergency and none of those 911 calls were for "black kids" only non-emergency calls.

    Here is the full report.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/22/george-zimmerman-s-history-of-911-calls-a-complete-log.html

    Secondly, All the evidence points to the fact that George didn't follow him and that TM actually confronted George Zimmerman as he was walking back to his truck. If TM wanted to get away he had plenty of opportunity and time.

  7. Jury split IMO

    That would be extremely sad if true...

    The best hope is this is deliberated for about 4-5min and he is found not guilty..

    In BLDR's closing yesterday, in which he was attempting to convince the jury that the state had proven guilt beyond reasonable doubt, he said this.

    “We don’t know what happened” “No one can be sure”.

    Just in case the lack of evidence wasn't enough for the jurors, this should do it.

  8. i have to say this trial is going back and forth right now.

    i thought for sure he was getting the chair. I think it might be a mistrial right now.

    The state doesn't have a case at all he will be acquitted. There whole argument for the states current line of questioning seems to be an effort to make the case that if GZ's injuries were not life threatening he could not have been in fear for his life. Sooo.... because he knows the law, he's guilty of something he otherwise wouldn't be guilty of if he wasn't aware of the specifics of the law? The State is arguing that understanding your right to self defense and an interest in law enforcement is evidence of murder.

    That is a real strong case :blink:

    When he is acquitted he needs to strike first in the civil case and take the state and TM's family to court for defamation of character, pain and suffering and of course a 9mm bullet.

  9. Can't wait to see riots.. The continuing mis-representation of this case by main stream media (except fox) is just sickening.

    Headline for Reuters..

    "Eyewitness describes Trayvon Martin's fatal struggle to Florida jury"

    What? Yea, Reality is more like Eyewitness describes Punk Ass Racist Black Teen (Creepy Ass Cracker) MMA style strikes on Zimmerman as he screamed for help.

  10. How many govt employees do we have reading every email?

    There would be 0 unemployment.

    How many employees are listening to you talk on phone?

    Newt would have us using children to listen

    You think people who work for the government can read? lol

    In all honesty though that shit is all done by the billion dollar computer systems they have in place to scan for key words/phrases. I imagine if your on a watch list someone will actually take time to read or listen to some of your correspondences. So if your on a watch list there is a chance that some guy named Bob knows all about your herpes and mistresses.

  11. Nice to see Godwin's law so quickly called into play. We've gone from a petty thief and small time alleged drug dealer to Hitler and Charles Manson. BOOM!

    You know who you guys sound like?

    How many do you think you need to kill before your problem is solved? Especially since that path fails to consider the root causes,

    First, You do know that Muslims are extremely pro gun control and anti second amendment as stated by the ISNA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Society_of_North_America

    Second, Muslims spread in the USA and black criminals basically go hand in hand.

    Third, I don't think personal defense is going to solve all the issues but turning people into victims certainly isn't going to solve any crime issues. Just look at where mass murders target and you get your answer. You would have to be deaf,dumb and blind not to understand they go after the unarmed.

    An eye for an eye and eventually the whole world is blind. Tell me, what exactly did Trayvon do that warranted his execution? Or are we moving into the realm of thoughtcrime because it's not about where he was then but instead a pre-determined path he would eventually take?

    Pr-determined path? He was already on that path of being a worthless thug just look at the content of his character for that. He wanted to be a thug and attacked the victim but instead of being a victim Zimmerman had the right to self defense. He executed his right to self defense and now we have a worthless thug no longer in this world. I am sure you will tell me all about how many people walking the thug path like Trayvon end up as perfect members of society. :blink:

  12. just like a standard right wing nut. repeat the same BS until it becomes a reality?

    Typical Liberal just ignore overwhelming evidence and statistics and instead base ideology on hurty feely emotions and political correctness.

    So what exactly is B.S.? Lets just talk facts and data here...

  13. but you guys are OK with these degenerates able to get guns anywhere/anytime though

    Are you saying Zimmerman was a degenerate? He does have a history but nothing I would consider to make him a degenerate. A felon on the other hand can't own a weapon and can't purchase a weapon legally. So what exactly is your point? The degenerate in this case was Trayvon and he didn't have a gun and now he is dead the system seemed to work perfectly in this case and I am not saying it always does but disarming the public only allows the wolfs to feed on the defenseless sheep.

    Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so

    because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy

    things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that

    may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,

    even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth

    dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the

    United States Naval Academy November 24, 1997

    One Vietnam veteran, an old retired colonel, once said this to me:

    "Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle, productive

    creatures who can only hurt one another by accident." This is true. Remember, the

    murder rate is six per 100,000 per year, and the aggravated assault rate

    is four per 1,000 per year. What this means is that the vast majority of Americans

    are not inclined to hurt one another.

    Some estimates say that two million Americans are victims of violent

    crimes every year, a tragic, staggering number, perhaps an all-time record

    rate of violent crime. But there are almost 300 million Americans, which

    means that the odds of being a victim of violent crime is considerably less than one

    in a hundred on any given year. Furthermore, since many violent crimes are

    committed by repeat offenders, the actual number of violent citizens is considerably

    less than two million.

    Thus there is a paradox, and we must grasp both ends of the situation:

    We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still

    remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people

    who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme

    provocation. They are sheep.

    I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me it is like the

    pretty, blue robin's egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow

    into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue

    shell. Police officers, soldiers, and other warriors are like that shell, and

    someday the civilization they protect will grow into something wonderful.? For

    now, though, they need warriors to protect them from the predators.

    "Then there are the wolves," the old war veteran said, "and the wolves

    feed on the sheep without mercy." Do you believe there are wolves out there

    who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil

    men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget

    that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in

    denial.

    "Then there are sheepdogs," he went on, "and I'm a sheepdog. I live to

    protect the flock and confront the wolf."

    If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive

    citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy

    for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But

    what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow

    citizens?

    What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking

    the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the

    universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed

    Let me expand on this old soldier's excellent model of the sheep,

    wolves, and sheepdogs. We know that the sheep live in denial, that is what makes

    them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the

    world. They can accept the fact that fires can happen, which is why they want fire

    extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and fire exits throughout their kids'

    schools.

    But many of them are outraged at the idea of putting an armed police

    officer in their kid's school. Our children are thousands of times more likely

    to be killed or seriously injured by school violence than fire, but the

    sheep's only response to the possibility of violence is denial. The idea of someone

    coming to kill or harm their child is just too hard, and so they chose the

    path of denial.

    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the

    wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is

    that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep

    dog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished

    and removed.

    The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative

    democracy or a republic such as ours.

    Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that

    there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn't tell them

    where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our

    airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much

    rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, "Baa."

    Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to

    hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

    The students, the victims, at Columbine High School were big, tough

    high school students, and under ordinary circumstances they would not

    have had the time of day for a police officer. They were not bad kids; they just had

    nothing to say to a cop. When the school was under attack, however, and SWAT

    teams were clearing the rooms and hallways, the officers had to physically peel

    those clinging, sobbing kids off of them. This is how the little lambs

    feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door.

    Look at what happened after September 11, 2001 when the wolf pounded

    hard on the door. Remember how America, more than ever before, felt

    differently about their law enforcement officers and military personnel? Remember how

    many times you heard the word hero?

    Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a

    sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a

    funny critter: He is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the

    breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and yearning for a

    righteous battle. That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous

    battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move

    to the sound of the guns when needed right along with the young ones.

    Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep

    pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After

    the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America

    said, "Thank God I wasn't on one of those planes." The sheepdogs, the warriors, said,

    "Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I

    could have made a difference." When you are truly transformed into a

    warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there.

    You want to be able to make a difference.

    There is nothing morally superior about the sheepdog, the warrior, but

    he does have one real advantage. Only one. And that is that he is able

    to survive and thrive in an environment that destroys 98 percent of the

    population.

    There was research conducted a few years ago with individuals

    convicted of violent crimes. These cons were in prison for serious,

    predatory crimes of violence: assaults, murders and killing law enforcement officers. The vast

    majority said that they specifically targeted victims by body language: slumped

    walk, passive behavior and lack of awareness. They chose their victims like

    big cats do in Africa, when they select one out of the herd that is least able

    to protect itself.

    Some people may be destined to be sheep and others might be

    genetically primed to be wolves or sheepdogs. But I believe that most

    people can choose which one they want to be, and I'm proud to say that more and more Americans

    are choosing to become sheepdogs.

    Seven months after the attack on September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer was

    honored in his hometown of Cranbury, New Jersey. Todd, as you recall, was the

    man on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania who called on his cell phone to alert an

    operator from United Airlines about the hijacking. When he learned of the other

    three passenger planes that had been used as weapons, Todd dropped his phone

    and uttered the words, "Let's roll," which authorities believe was a signal to

    the other passengers to confront the terrorist hijackers. In one hour, a

    transformation occurred among the passengers - athletes, business

    people and parents. -- from sheep to sheepdogs and together they fought the wolves,

    ultimately saving an unknown number of lives on the ground.

    There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible

    evil of evil men. - Edmund Burke

    Here is the point I like to emphasize, especially to the thousands of

    police officers and soldiers I speak to each year. In nature the sheep, real

    sheep, are born as sheep. Sheepdogs are born that way, and so are wolves.

    They didn't have a choice. But you are not a critter. As a human being, you can be

    whatever you want to be. It is a conscious, moral decision.

    If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that is okay,

    but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your

    loved ones are going to die if there is not a sheepdog there to protect you. If

    you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt

    you down and you will never have rest, safety, trust or love. But if you want

    to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior's path, then you must make a conscious

    and moral decision every day to dedicate, equip and prepare yourself to thrive

    in that toxic, corrosive moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.

    For example, many officers carry their weapons in church.? They are

    well concealed in ankle holsters, shoulder holsters or inside-the-belt

    holsters tucked into the small of their backs.? Anytime you go to some form of

    religious service, there is a very good chance that a police officer

    in your congregation is carrying. You will never know if there is such an individual in your

    place of worship, until the wolf appears to massacre you and your loved ones.

    I was training a group of police officers in Texas, and during the

    break, one officer asked his friend if he carried his weapon in church. The other

    cop replied, "I will never be caught without my gun in church." I

    asked why he felt so strongly about this, and he told me about a cop he knew who was at

    a church massacre in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1999. In that incident, a mentally

    deranged individual came into the church and opened fire, gunning down fourteen

    people. He said that officer believed he could have saved every life that day

    if he had been carrying his gun. His own son was shot, and all he could do

    was throw himself on the boy's body and wait to die. That cop looked me in the

    eye and said, "Do you have any idea how hard it would be to live with yourself

    after that?"

    Some individuals would be horrified if they knew this police officer

    was carrying a weapon in church. They might call him paranoid and

    would probably scorn him. Yet these same individuals would be enraged and would call for

    "heads to roll" if they found out that the airbags in their cars were defective,

    or that the fire extinguisher and fire sprinklers in their kids'

    school did not work. They can accept the fact that fires and traffic accidents can

    happen and that there must be safeguards against them.

    Their only response to the wolf, though, is denial, and all too often

    their response to the sheepdog is scorn and disdain. But the sheepdog

    quietly asks himself, "Do you have and idea how hard it would be to live with

    yourself if your loved ones attacked and killed, and you had to stand there

    helplessly because you were unprepared for that day?"

    It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically

    destroyed by combat because their only defense is denial, which is

    counterproductive and destructive, resulting in fear, helplessness and

    horror when the wolf shows up.

    Denial kills you twice. It kills you once, at your moment of truth

    when you are not physically prepared: you didn't bring your gun, you didn't

    train. Your only defense was wishful thinking. Hope is not a strategy.

    Denial kills you a second time because even if you do physically survive, you

    are psychologically shattered by your fear helplessness and horror at

    your moment of truth.

    Gavin de Becker puts it like this in Fear Less, his superb post-9/11

    book, which should be required reading for anyone trying to come to

    terms with our current world situation: "...denial can be seductive, but it has an

    insidious side effect. For all the peace of mind deniers think they get by saying it

    isn't so, the fall they take when faced with new violence is all the more

    unsettling."

    Denial is a save-now-pay-later scheme, a contract written entirely in

    small print, for in the long run, the denying person knows the truth on some

    level.

    And so the warrior must strive to confront denial in all aspects of

    his life, and prepare himself for the day when evil comes.

    If you are warrior who is legally authorized to carry a weapon and you

    step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep, pretending that

    the bad man will not come today. No one can be "on" 24/7, for a lifetime.

    Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you

    walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to

    yourself...

    "Baa."

    This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no

    dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees,

    a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on

    the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the

    other.

    Most of us live somewhere in between. Since 9-11 almost everyone in America

    took a step up that continuum, away from denial. The sheep took a few steps

    toward accepting and appreciating their warriors, and the warriors started

    taking their job more seriously. The degree to which you move up that

    continuum, away from sheephood and denial, is the degree to which you and your loved

    ones will survive, physically and psychologically at your moment of truth.
