A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

The cause must become the solution as the solution becomes the cause. In a government build from theRead More ground up, change must come the same way. To expect it otherwise is to invite disappointment and frustration which seems a fair assessment of where we seem to be collectively as exemplified by the tone in many of the replies to this thread alone.

If they would only enforce the "Keep Right, Pass Left" law, they would get rid of most ofRead More the "aggressive driving" (moving around dangerously between lanes and passing on the right) and road rage simply because there would be no one holding them up in the left lane. "Keep Right, Pass Left" is easier to enforce than speeding and would also make the enforcement of speeding easier since those speeding would most likely be in the left lane. Win, win, win. This, along with signaling lane changes, is what makes the Autobahn (with very high speed limits /no speed limits at all) safer than the US highways.
Bryan Rivera April 17, 2014 at 02:25 pm
How many LI drivers are routinely using the Taconic? NY State police don't patrol the LIE, so youRead More can still drive like an asshole there during "speed week." They do patrol the parkways, though, so I guess you can expect to see three or even four state police cars as opposed to the normal one per parkway.

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

ok the the electorial college did a great job, the citizens of the United States elected Al Gore, weRead More got W instead, boy that worked out great didn't it. took a budget surplus and turned it into a massive deficit, declared war on a country that did nothing to us, gave no big contracts to Halliburton, telling Dick Cheney's pockets, water boarded prisoners, the same crime that we prosecute did the Japanese work after World War 2. Electorial College give me a break, until we get rid of gerrymandering, on both sides, we get what we deserve, rich people buying elections, voter suppression, and the right-wing Supreme Court, picking presidents, go ahead try to defend the indefensible.

Christopher - Third-party presidential candidates who had substantial support (such as John AndersonRead More in 1980 and Ross Perot in 1992 and 1996) got on the ballot in all 50 states, and third-party candidates with low-single-digit support succeeded in getting onto the ballot in almost every state. * * * * * Minority party voters in every state would be counted equally for their candidate. The state of the voter would not matter.
Christopher Wendt April 17, 2014 at 03:02 pm
@ Susan...understood, but as concerns this comment: "... (t)he state of the voter would notRead More matter", my position is strongly that the state of the voter does, should, and must matter...to that voter, and to his fellow voters in that state. Presidents don't come from other planets, or even from other countries on Earth; each President came from his STATE, and the interests of one state are certainly not the same as the interests of every other state. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- However, I will concede that, if enough of the country wanted direct popular election of the President and could pass a Constitutional Amendment requiring that, then I would be all for going that way. Any other route to national popular election of the President, like pacts, I am fervently against. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Agreeing to disagree on the grounds given.

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.
