five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition
100 rounds is nothing. 5 guns is nothing. The 100 rounds is nothing when divided into the 5 guns. 5 guns is "gun poor" in some circles. People go to the range at lunch and burn through 100 rounds, if not more.
The AP is out to get Zimmerman. Granted, he's not helping the situation any at all. But, they're going to make a story out of anything they can, even if it's inane.posted @ Tuesday, November 26, 2013 - 13:42

That they crossed "the pond" successfully?
Heck, we've given that responsibility for a safe crossing into the hands of government. And fittingly enough, many bow down to their government in thanksgiving.posted @ Tuesday, November 26, 2013 - 12:50

Moot point. His mom bought them legally and gave them to her son. You can not hold an unrelated party liable for the actions that in all respect, fatally subverted the safeguards that were in place.
What you want to do is akin to holding the AAA liable for every teen killed in auto accidents. Or better yet, hold the American Bar Owners Association liable for people who get drunk at home from alcohol bought by a third person.
It's just insane to punish the innocent for the actions of the guilty party that was aided by an accomplice.posted @ Tuesday, November 26, 2013 - 12:02

You are what you eat. Who wants to be a “butterball”?
No. Much better to be a couch potato. Or a squash, which is what you feel like just before unbuttoning your pants after dinner.
Me? I'm skipping all that and headed for the grains, ryes, malts, barleys and the like. Cheers y'all.

Why else would you make a beer run to the store at midnight for? Eggs? Naaaa. Beer. Or mixers. But I'm going with beer. These guys sound like they're not cultured enough for mixers.posted @ Tuesday, November 26, 2013 - 08:57
Geeez guys. Give it a few weeks and the big chain theaters will have moved on to the newest movie and it's up to the smaller screens to carry it before it ends up on DVD or as then latest "made for TV" showing.posted @ Monday, November 25, 2013 - 20:30

And let's also think: if these kids get fine art skills, where are they going to sell their wares and performances and such? Other starving artists can't afford it.
I survived the whole day without needing to use differential equations or cite anything to do with the Byzantine Empire. Useless junk bouncing around my brain.
Let's teach a lot of things in high school, let the kids experience many different things, math, science, art, sports, etc then let them decide where they'd like to go from there. And yes, they all should have to take AND PASS core courses that cover life skills like those you mentioned.
Oh, and no pass the class, no welfare benefits, ever.posted @ Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 17:15
