Dec 21st 2012 9:20AM This really is a simple arguement. Hunters want guns to kill animals. It's their right to do so just as it's my right to take pictures of said animals. If they need an assault weapon with mega clips they're doing it wrong and need a new hobby. That said, the purpose of an assault weapon is to kill humans. I've heard it argued that they like that they can target shoot without having to change clips so often. That, to me, is the lamest of arguements in this entire discussion. I hate to bring up a problem and not have a solution so how about this, put trigger locks on every weapon. That way some 5 year old with brain dead parents won't shoot and kill his 3 year old sister with a loaded weapon kept in some drawer. Some folks like to keep their weapons on display. I prefer my die cast models but okay, I understand. You're a collector. Remove the firing pin from display guns, otherwise hide them in a metal cabinet with a lock on the door. Out of sight out of mind type of thing. Oh, and yeah, I did shoot expert in the service so I'm pretty sure if I wanted to hit something I pretty much could. How about after extensive background checks and a mental health exam, you be required to hit the bullseye of a target from 1,000 yards 5 times in a row to prove you are capable of not having "collateral damage" while protecting the innocent? 100 yards with a pistol. Require monthly range shooting to keep up the abilities.
Dec 4th 2012 10:40AM It's illegal to fly the flag upside down unless there is a real national emergency. Invasion of our country would be a national emergency. A moron's personal dislike for our black president is not a national emergency. It's racism.

Jul 3rd 2011 12:41PM With the influx of illegal aliens to this country we COULD compete with offshore accounts, if you can get them educated enough to run production facilities. All they ask is a living wage to feed their families, give them a roof for shelter and a few amenities. Oh wait, isn't that what the LEGAL American worker started out wanting? Hence the unions development. But since we have crooks running unions, along the lines of Hoffa, and the kind of money that unions take in so they can bribe the next candidate for office, the American worker has lost. How to fix this? Firstly, I don't believe that illegals should receive amnesty. At that point we would be giving 20 million non Americans legitimacy and open the floodgates for more illegals. Tariffs on offshore products? If the country we are importing from has tariffs on our goods going there, absolutely! Fair trade is fair trade. Go to any Walmart and you'll see chinese products dominate their stores. The same chinese products that have cause e coli breakouts, lead in the paints on toys, cribs that kill children. Am I against Walmart? Absolutely not. Shop there m'self. But they have to be accountable for the products they purchase and pawn off on unsuspecting American families. A friend of mine told me once, without manufacturing you have no economy. Manufacturing drives economy. Everything revolves around it. Service industries die off when there is no manufacturing. So if it be automobiles or computer chips, if it's not MADE here I don't want it.
Jul 3rd 2011 12:26PM Bill may be doing wonderful things after his presidency but I just can't take him seriously since the reason he left office was his indescrtion.
Jun 24th 2011 8:29PM Kyle Busch, a NASCAR superstar, was clocked at 127 mph in a 45. He issued an apology but I haven't heard his punishment yet. This Ryann Dunn had lots of talent as an actor and none as a driver, obviously. Unless you have driven at speed on race tracks and been successful, you should stay at or near the speed limit. It's there for the less than talented.

Mar 29th 2011 12:08PM A Muslim spiritual leader needs a 200 million dollar yacht? I don't care if he's the son of Mahatma Ghandi, what's so spiritual about being this filthy rich? What does it bring to his spiritual family?

Jan 19th 2011 9:02AM Because it's an iconic automobile. "There are so many of them running around...." What's this tell you, Jason? They're an extremely capable, useable automobile and there's an entire culture built around them. Just look on line at how many clubs there are for the PT Cruiser. You say they're ugly, I say they're no more ugly than one of the most popular street rods in the country, the 1937 Ford sedan. We all can't agree on what is beautiful but I have owned 3 of the sedans and a convertible. At 14.8 and 98 mph in the quarter mile with an automatic, my turbo sedan was faster than the 5.0 litre Mustangs it ran against in the quarter mile and faster than an out of the box 67 GTO 389 4 speed. I've hauled 8 foot boards in mine, driven tens of thousands of miles with nothing more than oil changes and general maintenance. Yes, I DO think it's a timeless design and the only reason they DID stop making it was to make way for that ugly POS Fiat 500 which has the utililty of a roller skate.
