Re: Another Shooting

I have to say I agree. I composed a response and ultimately didn't send it, but it went along the lines of how amazed I am that every wrong action seems to require a death sentence in some people's minds. People get killed now for pulling in front of an armed person in traffic. I'm not saying armed...

Re: The Spawn of Trump

Vintage 2016. I wonder how many awards his brand has garnered. I'd bet none. Like everything else Trump does, it's done at the level you'd expect in a discount store.

Re: Another Shooting

Sounds like a guy with a gun and no training. It's suicidal to confront two armed bad guys without defilade. I wonder whether good guys are misled by the way the bad guys in movies always fall to the ground or are completely disabled with one shot?* It ain't so in that more worrying place, the real...

Re: Another Shooting

I have my doubts that it would have been justifiable homicide if he had shot and killed one or both of the robbers. His life wasn’t in danger until he pulled his own gun. Having a CCP does not give you license to be a vigilante.

Re: President Obama on the 2020 Elections

There is a fear of medical bills. Check the Part A coverage. It's no cost, but you can really be hung out to dry with the long term hospitalization coverage. Part B covers 80%. That can seriously dig into your retirement income when you may have to cough up say, $10,000. Buy a supplemental policy an...

I've always wondered why we pronounce Moscow Moscow instead of Moskva, which is how the Russians pronounce it.
Naples is Napoli in Italy. Do you remember Peking? Why can't we change most of those names?

I think Donald should resign due to "health reasons." Can we set up an over/under poll on this? Tiebreaker is determined based on best estimate of when this happens.

Ivanka, on the other hand, is not repulsive. I don't think it will be enough to get her elected president, and maybe no other seat.
I wouldn't expect her to get half of Daddy's Vote. Ivanka strikes me as a follower, not a leader.

I've always considering that kind of racing a waste of engineering. While "conventional" racing yielded improved power train, suspension, and tire designs, there is no practical application for 500mph cars.
