Re: CA: 1 dead 2 wounded at Costco shooting. Not what you might think.

The story brings up a couple of interesting questions. 1. Was the officer attacked because he was in uniform? Does being in uniform and being assaulted by more than one adult, especially when you have a child to protect change anything? 2. There is no mention of a deadly weapon by the attackers. I'm...

I suspect that if Swawell becomes POTUS, a recreational Nuke will be the least of anyone's problems.

Re: Oberlin College Forced To Pay Local Bakery $11 Million In Racial Hoax Defamation Case

I wonder what has or will happen to Dean Raimondo. While the President of Oberlin (according to the original link) signed the initial email accusing the bakery, it was the dean who participated in the boycotts and apparently helped with organizing the students. The rest of us understand that the app...

Re: Bonnen must go

Someone on Twitter pointed out to me the other day that Bonnen was a Strauss protégé, so no one should be surprised at his actions. My conclusion is that the GOP in Texas is following the national GOP into self-immolation. Democrats want power, and know how to use it. Republicans want power, but ei...

Re: Oberlin College Forced To Pay Local Bakery $11 Million In Racial Hoax Defamation Case

So the college may have to shell out some money but what about the individuals? Nothing will happen to the truly guilty people I would bet. Maybe, maybe not. I'm seeing articles that say the college's insurer says the awards are not covered. If Oberlin has to pay out of pocket for the current award...

Re: Bonnen must go

I attended a meeting last night which featured, as speakers, three member of the Texas Legislature - 2 House members and a senator. I would judge them all to be men of integrity and applaud their courage for coming before what I will characterize as somewhat hostile but restrained audience. They wer...

Re: Urban protection for women on the East Coast, LA or Chicago

What this actually is is a sad statement. It says that a visible accessory is all of the protection the people in these places have against bad things happening to them. I'm guessing that there is one level of criminal that doesn't even know what an air pod is.(or doesn't care.) Serendipity is a gre...

Re: No place but Chicago or Illinois

This is an interesting escalation between the police and Chicago's officials. But it follows the Detroit path. It doesn't matter who is elected, the next administration is as corrupt as the previous one. https://pjmedia.com/trending/beyond-jussie-smollett-police-union-rep-condemns-the-obscene-anti-p...

Re: NY: Homeowner kills intruders, charged with illegal possesion handgun

Homeowner was arrested by police, not because of the shooting, but because the handgun he used he had inherited from his father but never registered the change in ownership with the state. Now he is facing a felony charge. I have a really hard time not seeing this as an infringement of the right to...

Re: Irresponsible dog owner

Wow, you have to worry about the dog and it's owner. That is my experience, too. I ride bike and carry OC. I've had a number of times when aggressive dogs have chased me. When i'm sure that I can get away (usually smaller dogs), I just keep pedaling. If i don't think that I have enough speed to out...
