Police: 2 shootings, 10 minutes apart, were unrelated

I say that the apparently random shootings are gang initiations. A test to see if you can pull the trigger and become a "real man". I wonder how many points they get for murdering an unsuspecting and unarmed person?  (Sep 30, 2008 | post #2)

Overcome racism

I am an engineer who graduated from college in 1980 from a pricey private university in Pennsylvania. At that time only half that started the engineering curriculum ended up completing it. There were no blacks in my classes, and only a few in the other engineering classes (less than their proportion of the general population). Almost 30 years later, the percentages are unchanged. On top of this, no-white no-male students get more financial aid and higher starting salaries. So if you pay some people more while they are in school, and then pay them more when they start working, and if everything else (like intelligence) was equal, then why is there still only 10% women and minorities graduating from engineering schools? I say it is either genetic or cultural, or both. And I am not responible for either and refuse to feel bad about it. And it is not racist to refuse to compromise standards for the sake of ethic diversity. I want to be sure that new graduates had the same rigorous education that I did.  (Sep 22, 2008 | post #164)

Three charged in beating of student, 14, in Hampton school

Let's get the whole story, Daily Press. Were the 'beaters' all black and the 'victim' white? If you do not tell us, then we will assume that it is true. Then we can argue why blacks are not prosecuted for hate crimes against whites. And this is not just a 'fight', this is 'mob violence' and 'conspiracy'.  (Sep 12, 2008 | post #14)

Pit bulls: vicious or victims?

I have argued with my step-daughter on this point. She always says that the pit bulls that she has met were very nice dogs, and that its the owners that turn the dogs bad. My point to her is that even dogs that are great at home can attack if they get away from their humans. Pit bulls have the strength and the jaws to kill larger animals (like children or other pets). Most of the attacks that make the newspaper are from dogs that are running loose. Also, dogs can turn on their families when they get sick or old. They also have killed babies in their home. None of these actions are unique to pit bulls. The breed is not inherently evil, but they are deserving of fear because of their capability to hurt.  (Sep 12, 2008 | post #26)

The Obama watch: On the outside looking in

The Obama campaign should have satisfied Ms Bates and the others outside by parading an empty dark suit passed them. That is what B. Hussein Obama really is. Put a teleprompter with a prepared speech in front of it, and it is still an empty suit.  (Sep 11, 2008 | post #20)

MSNBC replaces Olbermann, Matthews as co-anchors of polit...

The conservatives did not need the "Fairness Doctrine" to get these two off the air. We just refuse to watch them. NBC is 'in the tank' for Obama, but these two were not even entertaining or informative. I will not miss them because I do not watch them.  (Sep 9, 2008 | post #410)

Police say man killed his own dog with a sword

Man takes intruders' gun, chases them from home

Glad the man took action to take the gun away. There is no telling what the thugs would have done to him. But if you are going to shoot, you need to have better aim. I realize he was trying to disable their van or wound one of them so the cops could catch them. Without being there, there is no way to tell if he took a 'safe' shot and just missed, or if there were other people that were endangered.  (Sep 4, 2008 | post #33)

Obama's a leader

The Bush administration is gone no matter who wins the election. It OK to be the war, or war in general, but Bush was dealt a tough hand and he did pretty good with it. The attacks of 9/11 demanded and deserved retaliation. We haven't been successfully attacked again thanks to the massive changes that were made. The history books will treat George W at lot better than the nightly news does.  (Aug 29, 2008 | post #40)

McCain makes decision on running mate

I like the little bit that I have read about her today. Plus (as others have already said), she is a BABE. Pro-life, pro-2nd Ammendment, a sportswoman, and goes against the establishment. I had been hoping for Senator Kay Bailey Huthinson of Texas, but this is better because this lady in not a Washington 'insider'. The anti-Obama Hillary voters can come over to our side now.  (Aug 29, 2008 | post #98)

Victory in Iraq

As a result of the 911 attacks, we lost 3000 people, 2 billion-dollar buildings, and our economy was adversely impacted for at least 2 years. The enemy lost control of two entire COUNTRIES. It is close to being even.  (Aug 29, 2008 | post #62)

Next gun show

There are a lot more stories about thugs robbing, carjacking, or just murdering people than about suicides or domestic violence. Responsible armed citizens protecting themselves are the best deterent against street violence. I am glad that my wife has decided that she wants a "toy" of her own. This followed years of worrying that gunownership was unsafe or evil. She realizes now that a gun is just a tool. Regrettably, it is the only tool that matters when the thugs kick your door in or try to jack your car.  (Aug 28, 2008 | post #74)

Employee charged with sexual offenses at water park

Give him a choice of leaving the country voluntarily or face deportation. If he doesn't like that, then prosecute him and deport him afterward. Third choice is street justice: Give the fathers of the young girls 10 minutes alone with him.  (Aug 28, 2008 | post #6)

Veterans for Obama

I hope John McCain astounds the pundits by reaching for Bob Barr or Ron Paul as his vice president running mate. I realize that it would a couple old white guys, but at least they are grown ups who have studied and experienced REAL history.  (Aug 26, 2008 | post #121)
