Another FB hoax, and you need to know this. Much like cretin topix posters use celebrity name or worse, names (or parodies thereof) of other posters:
http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/morg...
First Snopes debunked it, now Morgan Freeman himself has stated that the widely-circulated quote condemning the media's response to the Newtown, CT tragedy is, in fact, not from him. The statement took the media to task for the manner in which they cover mass shootings, claiming that it glorifies the killers and gave other disturbed individuals an incentive to follow suit. The fact that the statement purported to be from the beloved, Academy Award-winning 75 year old actor led to it being posted and re-posted far and wide the Internet over, which led some to become suspicious of the quote's true source.
This is not the first political stance misattributed to Freeman: in September, a quote from a Twitter parody account featuring Freeman's photo condemning homophobia was widely attributed to the actor himself, in spite of clear indications—the spelling of the account, the profanity it employed—that it was not him.
Thanks for that DW - must check my sources more carefully! Ironically, when researching on the net for history information. I am very rigorous - maybe that's why I'm slack in other areas - relaxing.

<quoted text>LMAO!!! Great answer!!!
This makes me wonder, though ... I bet it is Police policy that they lock their lockers ... my understanding is that losing thier gun or badge can get them a reprimand ...
The lawyer was beign quite underhanded, wasn't he? If I was the officer I might be tempted to ask the lawyer "Hey, maybe your colleagues will lie to you, but I doubt my colleagues would lie to me" ...
Sadly, in court procedure, a witness doesn't get the opportunity to do this, but I know exactly what you mean!

Can't let that pass - some of the best meals I had was in my time with the Royal Navy and the Commandos - the Sergeants, Colour Sergeants and Chief Petty Officer chefs were top rate and won national competitions. Did eat a couple of times on USN ships though and do know where you are coming from!

Morning one and all - awoken this morning to more floods in Cornwall, together with flood threats on many of the rivers. I'm fine, being on higher grounds, but I do feel sorry for some who are facing this for the third time so far this winter and we're only in December.

<quoted text>Hi El. My wife and I went to a casino and had a nice drive and a good lunch. The sad thing is I lost $20 :) Well Obama went on TV and as we thought he is going to expand gun control or at least try to. We have a bill being introduced in Texas that will really reduce the probability of another tragedy. Just like they have sky marshals we will have school marshals. They will be unknown who is the first responders and will be school personal who will have concealed carry license and police training and will be a deputy. These nuts don't go to places they know someone will be armed. Blame the person who pulled the trigger not the gun
He didn't say he would abolish all guns ... he said he wanted to find a way to reduce the sort of tragedies that can occur with guns ... and that he would assign people to do all the research possible to find a solution that would meet with the approval of the general populatoin.

Perhaps the Texas proposal might be the one he thinks the country should adopt.

Pretty accurate statistics there. I did notice she we upgraded and got more channels it was the duplicates.
I get over 130 channels on my plan but I watch about 20 of them, hence my rough estimate (I know what's good on TV, don'tch know?)....

You've obviously never been to the souther US! Biscuits & gravy are very popular - a flaky bread type biscuit, not sweet, with a thick white gravy almost porridge like in consistency, I think made from a chicken fat broth. Ver hearty (hardy?) meal for folks who worked the farm fields.
The furthest I got was San Francisco,
never tasted it there...

tho' the food there was very VERY good.

I must admit tho' I missed the old
'spud'[El will know what I mean lol.]
they seemed to do a lot of dishes
not incl the potato.

The potato is a huge part of our Irish fare
here.

I'm still delighted for you,

Morning all, a little humour to brighten your day, pinched from a friend of mine on FB:
If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman.
He was being cross-examined by a defence attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility .....
Q:'Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?'
A:'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'
Q:'Officer, who provided this description?'
A:'The officer who responded to the scene.'
Q:'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'
A:'Yes, sir. With my life.'
Q:'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'
A:'Yes sir, we do!'
Q:'And do you have a locker in the room?'
A:'Yes, sir, I do.'
Q:'And do you have a lock on your locker?'
A:'Yes, sir.'
Q:'Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'
A:'You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'
The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.
NICE one, Tony.lol

El,

If I may come in here to say..

what a VERY LOVELY sentiment in that poem..

GREAT CHOICE...

First, I thought it was of your own
creation...

I might .. with your 'say so'.. put the
Christmas poem I wrote .. on here before the
big day..

It is a kind of 'patchwork quilt' of Christmas memories
from my past, and all deeply cherished & ever fondly remembered.

El,

It's a nice time of year to say

YOU are 'A Good Egg'

No that is just politics. You like one thing with another so you can say the other party is against keeping our kids safe. At one time in Texas you could not carry a gun in church. There was a mass shooting in church so the carry law was changed and you can now carry in church and we have had no more church shooting. The same change needs to be made to schools. We have 500,000 people in Texas with carry permits so no one knows who is armed. It makes a criminal think twice. All these shooting take place where no one has a gun. I trust my fellow citizen who is not a felon and has had training in the law and the use of a gun. Lots of women I work with have a carry permit and one has killed an attacker. It is very dangerous for a woman in real estate

We've had only one up here too, and you still can't carry a loaded gun into a church.

Trust your fellow gun owners? In Texas?

To receive a carry permit in Texas, you must attend and pass the mandatory class for gun safety and use that is taught by a certified instructor. Classes are usually ten to fifteen hours long and include the cost of your application. This class is a must for all who wish to carry a concealed weapon. A part of this class is shooting practice at the firing range, and some instructors require that you bring your own gun to the range.

LMFGDAO...yep, they be a sharpshooter alright after 10-15 hours of training.

Tally?
