Re: “MATA Hopes for May Return of Trolleys

So much for this story coming true. I'm really starting to get a bad feeling about this whole situation.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Truthfully to this point, all the candidates that both parties have trotted out really make you cringe. Where have you gone Joe Dimaggio?

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Hmmm... If the candidates were cars, Hillary is a heavily used old luxury Peugeot from the 1980's. And all these Republicans are econobox four-bangers. Except Rand Paul, who's got a Wankel.

I don't want four years of any of them. Is there another car lot out there someplace?

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

The boys are right there Charles, "The Second Amendment allows owning a gun to a non-felon". The big 2 don't say nuthin' bout felons. Maybe you and Ern can recover that common ground on the "slippery slope".

Boy you said it Ern. Either we're Strict Constructionistas, or we're not. Just because a person goes around waving the Tenth Amendment like a yellow flag at a short track NASCAR race doesn't make him a patriot.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

CHG,
So a State can say which constitutional right they will respect? Shame on you. Felons have as much right to firearms as double-parkers and those vile people who don't trim their lawns every week whether it needs it or not. Rules are Rules!! You are probably not supporting slavery as our Founders untended either. Wimp ass conservatives like you are contributing to the downfall of our Fatherland.

Re: “Afraid to Love?

I think the point, which is a valid one, is that if police are "hunting and killing" black men, they're doing it at a much lesser rate than other black men are.

Doesn't make it right, but if you're going to start with a premise of being afraid to love your nephew because his life might be short, why not start with all the many other things much more likely to cause him to die young than a police officer?

Now, all that said, in some ways, I'm glad to see that a video existed for this North Charleston case, much like the case in New Mexico involving the mentally unstable victim. With video, it tends to bring to light the reality of a situation and doesn't allow people to inject their own truth to the story.

That's ultimately a good thing, because I do believe the relationship between the police and the black community needs to be repaired. There is a fundamental trust issue that exists, and it goes both ways. Without a trust there, the police can't do their job, and if the police can't do their job, the community operates in a much more lawless manner.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

ern,

I never said that the Constitution says, 'no guns for felons'. It is a law by most, if not all States. How is the 5/8 clause relevant to the variety of topics I addressed? A red herring I suppose.

I'm looking forward to the "I hate Hillary more than you do" Republican primaries. Anyone have any popcorn?

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Bod, which ethnic minority did you have in mind? I want to make sure I'm living up to white male conservative projections.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Two things:

You can always count on progressives to hate on them some ethnic minority or other, even if they have to import them to do so.

Progressives will soon hate that which they did love and love that which they did hate. All you have to do is wait for it.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

CHG,
I never get tired of your sex talk. Especially when you bring up the slippery slope.
But where in the Constitution does it say no guns for felons? Don't pussy out now. And those 5/8ths citizens are they allowed 5/8ths of a gun? And maybe 3/8ths of the time, kinky sex.
Obviously we need your guidance here

Re: “Ganging Up

Why not kill them and jail the parents? Why not neuter and spay at 12 if they are headed thew wrong way? If I am attacked by these thugs I am killing as many as I can with the magazines I have. I am not joking. No one has the "right" to harm me or attempt to.

Re: “Afraid to Love?

TruthBeTold,
Thanks for the clarification.
