    Who wants Olive Garden?

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/09/07/olive-garden-never-ending-pasta-casual-dining-restaurants/15139803/ All you can eat for seven weeks
  2. Could literally take months. Supposedly, they brought supplies. Having money doesn't not mean that it's prudent to spend it that way. They didn't bring spouses or kids in, no reason not to Waco the place. Really? Please tell me what specific individuals were responsible for stopping traffic? Obstructing the process of several emergency vehicles responding to calls? Initiated violence in Ferguson? Started riots in Baltimore? Who are these "specific individuals?" If you don't think that BLM was not only aware but encouraged such behavior, you're crazy.
  3. If you actually believe that, I'm not sure how to respond. Because that is pure garbage.
  4. BLM committed arson, destruction of property, robbery, and larceny. Nothing happened.
  5. Okay. Still falls under an "oops." Point is, old Bundy still owes more time and is trying to claim Double Jeopardy
  6. Uh, it definitely falls under an oops. Unless you're saying the judge knew about the minimum sentence and chose to ignore it.
  7. Because they were released prior to having completed their sentence. What else is it?
  8. The part where they served less time than the minimum
  9. The whole point of the 2nd Amendment is to threaten the government.
  10. If we don't call shutting down malls and freeways, blocking ambulances, destroying businesses, burning cities and openly calling for attacking LEOs, "terrorism," why should we call this? They served time. Due to a clerical error, they did not serve the minimum required sentence. The government appealed and now the Bundys are claiming Double Jeopardy.

    Well know one really knows what the Dear Leader will do. Or how long it will be declared legally binding.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    The entire incident was investigated. It's entirely possible that asking about age is not part of the procedure. More over, people are terrible about estimating age. Caller could have said black teenager. That can mean anything from 12 to 19 years old.

    Hence why I laugh at most police training. Because the two are different? Police only need to feel threatened.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I didn't say they were right in this instance. I'm only pointing out that it is correct to train police that when going to call where there was a report of a gun, to assume that there is a gun. BTW, if you think police are "highly trained," you should probably research what goes in to their training.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    That's what you're supposed to do. You're supposed to assume that everyone could be carrying a gun and could be willing to use it on you. In a country with the highest rate of gun ownership in the developed world, as well as one of the highest death by firearm rates in the world, it is reasonable to assume that a 911 call reporting a person with a gun should be treated from the onset as a threat, until shown otherwise.

    All things Sports Talk Radio - DMV (met)

    Because people don't like hockey like they like football. Just like they don't like baseball like they like football. Just like they don't like basketball like they like football. Football is king. Redskins are king in this town. ESPECIALLY since the Skins are going to the playoffs. Radio is simply a slave to their ratings. If Howard Stern had pulled a 2 share instead of the 10+ share he pulled, we wouldn't know who he is.

    Do you have any evidence to support your position? Because the radio stations are driven almost exclusively by their ratings. So if they can point to a drop every time they talk about the Caps, then it's because they have evidence.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Many states automatically register you to vote if you have a valid driver's license, regardless of citizenship status. You can vote in a state where you are not a citizen, because the supposed ban on non-citizens voting only applies for federal elections. You can actually vote in another state's elections, you just have to be a resident there. The only time you can't is for federal elections. Not all felons lose the right to vote. I think you should be allowed to vote if you can be tried as an adult or you're an emancipated minor. No to mandatory gun and voter registration. Please read up on California. They can't even ask you at the polls and they don't require any verification. They simply take whoever has a driver's license and put them on the list. Frankly, if you're a legal residence in this country, you should be allowed to vote. If you're not, you should be deported.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Several states allow felons to vote. Citizenship is not enforced for voting. You can vote out of state, it's called an absentee ballot. Furthermore, you can reside in multiple places in the US and you are allowed to vote in local elections in those places. Because here are the requirements for voting in America: 1. Show up with ID 2. Cast vote 3. 4. Profit Proof of US residency =/= citizenship. You see, there are these people who come here. They are from foreign countries. They are not citizens, but the government gives them permission to live here. But the important part is that they are people too, and have rights, just like "us."

    I'd settle for the same restrictions that are put on voting at this point. And at no point have I put the right to keep and bear arms ahead of any other right.

    Oh yes ... Yes they are. Remember 2000? How many people did voting Bush in kill? Hundreds of thousands.

    A potential disaster? You don't have to be a citizen in Virginia. Is it a "disaster?"
