Silly practice when the person if obviously of legal age.
Do they ask 80-year olds to show proof in a bar?
What if a person has no ID, like all those Obama voters?
Not bars, stores. Yes. My dad was paying for the food last year and because I had a twelve pack in there he had to show his ID. He is 91. There are no exceptions. Before you all start he wanted to buy and you don't argue with my dad.

Kahdaffi kept alquida in check the globalists didn't want stability in the region;The Sahel region of northern Africa was among the first to be militarized under U.S.“war on terror” doctrine. It is now described as “an arc of instability said to run 4,000 miles from Somalia through the Sahel to the central Sahara.” The U.S. created the conditions that will “likely constitute a key argument to justify the amplification of AFRICOM’s budget.”

Ten Years After Invasion, Most Americans Remain Terrifyingly Insane

“You have a majority of Americans believing that Iraqis benefited from this war, while the United States suffered,” said David Swanson, publisher of the influential website War Is A Crime.“A plurality of Americans believe Iraqis are grateful for the invasion,” which killed 1.4 million and maimed, sickened or displaced many millions more, said Swanson

In desperation to halt the slide into “non-empire” status, the U.S. makes every government on Earth a potential target for “humanitarian” military intervention. The imposition of chaos is Washington’s default foreign policy as an alternative to “the Chinese handwriting on the wall.”

Mom and Pop stores were exempt because of the expense. A lot of them still use the old time cash registers that have no where to enter a birth date. Just like bars are exempt unless they are a chain.

Maybe, but you were inbred that way. Years & years of inbreeding dumbed down the already dumb! The end result is you a piece of shit! You really should read up on General Monk Monk ( noble Drew Ali) then tell me who bred who. Your acknowledgment of our dominance is correct, but your assertion as to how we got that way is all wrong.

I can't deny slavery happened, but the truth is they paid quadruple for black slaves vs white slaves because we were physically dominate from the beginning!

I spend a fair amount of money at Lowes and Ace and always use my cards because both occasionally send worthwhile discount cards. Home Depot does as well there are none convenient to me.

Only liberals have the delusion of "payback", ala mafia style.
Debating the issues would be a nice change. Disagreeing on the issues would be a nice change. Pointing out the flaws in the oppositions's policies would be a nice change.
This isn't "payback" as obviously this is what you are accusing republicans of having done.
But liberals can't do any of those things. They would risk revealing their dismal policies, their true identity and agenda and lose votes.
you castigate Obama at every turn with very little in the way of a realistic view of his actions.

so how did you like the Daily Caller interview of Carson? because the things he said that you faux conservatives won't like are the very things that would get him into the WH. and in the process, he did a very good job of pointing out others' flaws, and not just Obama's.

he'll never get near the WH because of it.

PLEASE don't pretend this isn't what you advocate, or that you've ever had a sexual encounter you didn't specifically encourage. I'm betting you wouldn't even know rape if you were the perpetrator, and that's the biggest part of the problem.
Any man who says he never had some form of sexual encounter with a woman who had a few too many is lying.

Why do you think bars and nightclubs exist?

More likely because they are individualists and don't like anybody, particularly the government, telling them how to lead their lives.

Nobody likes the Obama/Bloomerberg nanny state, but many are hooked on the welfare, like crack addicts.

Ever see them try to give change when the register is down? They can't count. Nor add or subtract. Forget about multiply and divide. Take the calculator away and most are a bunch of idiots.

Stopping rape is a men's problem

Women have talked among themselves and with their daughters about preventing rape for a very, very long time. They've gone to self-defense classes, held seminars and published safety tips on how to avoid rape. But self-defense and safety tips cannot alone protect women. Because rape is the inevitable outcome in a society that objectifies and dehumanizes women in a plethora of ways.

Men should join women in becoming vocal about the reasons for rape and what can be done to prevent it.

To start with, men should stop contributing, as so many do now, to an atmosphere that condones rape through silent complicity with, or voiced approval, of rape jokes, various forms of victim-blaming and attitudes that treat women as objects to be had if the opportunity presents itself. Men should speak unhesitatingly in the company of other men to break this cycle.

That means fathers speaking to sons as well. Straightforwardly making their sons clear about what truly constitutes consent requires being clear in their own heads what it means. Consent is not given because a woman has previously given consent, or because her outfit seems to be giving consent. And she obviously is not consenting if she is too inebriated or drugged to stay conscious. A campaign in Vancouver, British Columbia, included a wall poster depicting a woman sprawled on a couch next to some empty wine bottles stated: "Just because she isn’t saying no doesn’t mean she is saying yes.”

Fathers should set an example so that their sons also will not remain silent when such behavior arises among their friends or acquaintances, whether at school or some party where the liquor flows. They should impress upon them that there are no "provocations" or circumstances—none—in which rape can be excused. They should repeat these values until they feel as certain as possible that their sons will not be one of those someday accused of rape or having stood by, much less cheered, while their friends or acquaintances raped.

That is why minimum wage jobs exist, for those with no experience, no education, and no skills.

Good comeback. But wrong.

Accusing an opponent of falsely killing someone's wife is not an assertion. Accusing opponents of wanting to throw old people off cliffs and wanting children to starve to death are not assertions.

So you really don't have a leg to stand on.
