Re: Police misbehavior thread

To clarify the frustration you're seeing, Mike, no one's denying your claim that you've been treated unfairly by the police. That's kind of a thing that they do, far too frequently. But when you say [...] my demographic is often specifically targeted - rather than the local young black population, ...

Re: Shooting at Christian organization in DC

This is one of those weird cases where, while the shooting is terrible, I have little sympathy for the victim. :roll: That's pretty cold. I'm no fan of the jackasses in the board room, but they deserve peace and harmony as much as LGBT folk. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. And, holy ...

Re: Selecting desired genetic traits should be parent's choi

Anyone remember Gattaca? Just throwing it out there. (I know it's far more dramaticized than this will likely ever be, but it's still a valid POV on the issue.)

Re: Multiple shooting reported at Texas A&M University

I can't wait for the political overreaction to all of these "high-profile" shootings in the past few weeks. :(

Re: Gun Control

So, there is a bill in California that is supposed to close a "loophole" in the current law. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/07/sb-249-ca-sen-leland-yee-gun-control-bill_n_1752190.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular With Senate Bill 249, Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) is trying to close ...

Not to mention the fact that nothing happened to him kind of proves he didn't need a gun. Scary thing is the guy is a cop. Remind me to never visit Kalamazoo, Mich. To be fair: in Michingan "have you been to the stampede yet?" is slang for "we wouldn't want nobody to get hurt or noth...

Re: Recommend one artist

Two Steps From Hell . Technically more of a production company than a band, but their composers are legendary... If you've watched any action-ish movie in the last ten years, you've listened to them. This song's my favorite right now. (Apparently it was used in Sucker Punch... the soundtrack was th...

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

My high school band director, during the sightreading portion of state Band Festival:
"All right, any questions?"

Re: Gun Control

1) Your experience with firearms. 2) Your opinion on Gun Control laws, national, state whatever. 3) Your general political persuasion. Prefix: I'm 15 years old. If this affects your opinion on me, so be it. 1) I grew up around firearms (Dad's a former Marine.), and while I don't hunt, I regularly s...

Re: Twelve killed by gunman in Denver movie theatre

On the subject of gun control, I have a very simple opinion on it. I would much prefer to have the ability to protect myself than to rely on my government and police for that. On that note, I'm off to go pick up a $75 Mosin-Nagant to go bury somewhere on my property in case the anti-gun-nuts gain an...

Re: Executive Order gives Emergency Internet Kill Switch

On the other hand, is there any explanation on what this switch actually does? I mean, which part of the internet does it affect? Reading through the executive order, it seems as if this gives the Homeland Security Department the ability to commandeer the ISPs and use them for whatever communicatio...
