Re: All in one place

I think instead of discouraging jihadis from joining ISIS, we should encourage them. That way they're easier to identify and kill. Not a lot of places to hide in the deserts of Western Iraq and Eastern Syria.

Re: 57 cops killed by "unarmed" thugs

Nope. Just saying that the person they killed was "unarmed" is irrelevant as to whether or not it was a justified shooting.

OTOH, one can also state that being armed [and trained in a weapon's use] is irrelevant to one's [more]

Re: Ferguson police report

So HE did know of the crime and that they fit the bill at that time.

The report doesn't state that at all. You're quoting the article, which is citing a statement previously made by the police chief. In fact, the report states [more]

Michael Brown autopsy

Does anyone find it odd that the police are withholding the autopsy report? All they have disclosed is that Brown was shot.

Since I heard one witness assert that he was shot in the back, one would think that the police would attempt to [more]

Sparkling Ice

Older daughter just introduced us to these delicious, slightly fizzy, zero calorie, fruit flavored drinks. My favorite is coconut pineapple. Anyone else tasted them?

Re: Hamas Terror Tunnels

Israel could have easily dealt with them the way the Egyptians dealt with the smuggling tunnels: pump sewage into them.

Great for groundwater [what little of it there is], I hear.

Re: Rich NY'ers leaving cause of high taxes

Not at all. Those rich Yuckers have enough money that taxes aren't the biggest thing in their life. Just like here, you'll see some different out of state plates ion some cars. Others, have tax free income, or so much wealth it doesn't matter. [more]

Re: Observe the pod under an ElAl fuselage

The article says it helps against shoulder-fired missiles.

You're probably correct; [more]
