  1. Cops tell me it happens pretty often with domestic confrontations.
  2. Driving into work this morning I listened to a news report with members of the foster family saying how there was nothing said or done that would lead them to have seen this coming fron Cruz. Not 2 minutes later there are people on the same station saying how kids knew who it was before his identification and former teachers saying how he had been a problem and been expelled, and how they were not surprised. Today a guy is interviewed who reported posting by Cruz to the FBI and was interviewed by them. An FBI official acknowledged on Thursday the bureau received a tip months before the Florida high school massacre about a social media comment by a Nikolas Cruz, who aspired to be “a professional school shooter." “Well, the next day I had two FBI agents standing in my office, taking down the information, taking copies of the screenshots and asking me questions that, of course, I couldn’t answer. All it was on my channel was a comment,” Bennight said. Bennight said he reported the disturbing comment because he “just couldn’t ignore” it. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/15/nikolas-cruz-school-shooter-comment-reported-to-fbi-months-ago-vlogger-says.html Why were these things not taken seriously? If guns were banned would anybody actually check on them to see if they'd been turned in?
  3. Watch videos of the old Soviet May day parades and such, they are heavy with vehicles, balistic missles and hardware, meant for intimidation. Then watch the Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders return from Afghanistan; Big difference. Purely pride & tradition.
  4. No it's just that Airmen have too much "touchy feely" training scheduled and the Marines are busy eating crayons.
  5. The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes have been invited to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo I think again this year. We don't have anything like the tradition of something like The Black Watch parading the Royal Mile for the Scottish Crown and opening of their Parliament. It is pretty awesome to watch.
  6. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is a well thought out and organized answer. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is what you say when you really don't have an answer.
  7. do the British fetishize their military? They "troop the colors" on the official birthday of the Sovereign. (I know, the U.S. doesn't have a sovereign) The USA troops wouldn't like it, too time & effort much getting ready for it.
  8. Why?
  9. What did you just do? I remember watching your post on my iphone and now I'm standing in a 7-11 Kwik-Mart surrounded by a PILE of dismembered Twinkies and Hersey bars!
  10. When Trump eventually goes down, who goes down with him? The Bigfoot that steps out of the flying saucer that lands on the White House lawn.
  11. I KNEW IT! Now it makes total sense why that AFLAC duck is white. It could've been a mallard or a teal or wood duck, but noooooo, it had to be a white duck! https://www.ispot.tv/ad/7juF/aflac-duck-does-yoga
  12. No kidding, on this very forum, (granted several years ago), by poster who is no longer with us, at least by the name he/she used then, pronounced me as a "filthy liar" (I remember that distinctly), and something along the lines of at least a KKK sympathizer because I was from close to Pulaski, Tn..
  13. Well. I've been called deplorable. I've been called a racist. I've been called a bigot. I've been called a "gun-nut". I've been called a "man-whore". I've been called a Klansman because I'm from Tennessee. Congratulations! You are the first to call me "vermin"!
  14. Two questions. Any "long gun"? (So the guy with the over/under Browning shotgun that hunts migratory waterfowl, or 3 shot bolt gun or single shot Ruger Falling Block #1 .30-06 can't have it unless he's a member of the "state recognized militia"? What does the number of firearms possessed have to do with anything? (To know that would require an unenforceable registration requirement for private transfers in addition to the current registration scheme used for retail sales. If "they" know you have multiple firearms, you won't have any of them for long after your first criminal act, which if past apprehensions are a model, will be at the scene where they will take you and the firearm into custody. If the firearm is not seized, what does it matter? You'd still be in possession of it, still having at least one.)
  15. "Ian Calderon wants restaurateurs to think long and hard before giving you a straw. Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California's lower house, has introduced a bill to stop sit-down restaurants from offering customers straws with their beverages unless they specifically request one. Under Calderon's law, a waiter who serves a drink with an unrequested straw in it would face up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000." Aparently drive-by spitballing has become common in Cali. Ugh, Wiki even has a page on how to use a straw to do this. That should be censored. https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Spitballs http://reason.com/blog/2018/01/25/california-bill-would-criminalize-restau
