“The Walmart crowd is too "urban" for me on a regular day, I can't imagine what it would be like on Black Friday.”

“Quote from Bill Maher... "IF you don't think god has a sense of humor, go watch the shoppers at your local walmart".”
Willie Qwit on Dec 1, 2013 at 13:34:32
“Urban? Really? Just for fun you ought to travel just a few miles out to a more rural area and check out the folks at those Walmarts. And be sure to go at around ten or eleven on a Saturday night. It can be a real education.”
“Actually guns and Christmas have been a tradition in America since...forever. Maybe find some people who were actually born in this country to write about American traditions, HP.”
Sherrie Heckendorn on Nov 29, 2013 at 17:51:35
“Funny-J_Rupel, but I have never known anyone that would give a gun for a christmas present to their children, much less buy as a christmas gift. Sorta goes against all Christmas is meant to mean-what with a holiday based on love and a present meant to kill”

“You're missing the point. My dad used to stalk quail and grouse in North Carolina but not with an assault rifle and a 100-round magazine, which have nothing, but absolutely nothing to do with Christmas traditions.”
Autora on Nov 29, 2013 at 17:44:26
“I was born in this country, and don't know anyone to whom guns and Christmas are 'an American tradition.' I also wasn't born yesterday.
Of course I know some people who will buy hunting rifles for family members, but are you trying to tell me that there are families in which it's a 'tradition' to buy someone a handgun every holiday season? Here, son, here's your first Saturday night special. Next year I'll get you a Gloch.”
“No it's just ironic that California has legalized weed on the basis of individual freedom, but at the same time wants to ban you from smoking tobacco in the privacy of your own home (something that has been legal since the founding of this country).”
tyme2play1 on Nov 24, 2013 at 14:52:32
“Just because something has been legal since the founding of this country does not make it healthy for ALL. People did not have the knowledge or technology to ascertain the what cigarette smoke does to health until medicine proved smoking cigs is dangerous...not only to the smoker but to those around them. Weed is not as widely used as cigs and when something poses a risk, it has to be controlled.”
“So what? He's gainfully employed so what's a little blow hurt now and then? Aren't libs the ones going on about legalizing drugs in the first place? Isn't Obama a (former) cocaine user?
The reason people on food stamps should be drug tested, is because if you are so helpless that taxpayers must buy your food, then you certainly aren't in any financial position to be buying expensive drugs.”

“Gainfully employed? He's on the taxpayer's dime, dude. And he's done nothing to earn that money.”
“Oh, please. Katrina affected a few hundred thousand people, and destroyed what was essentially a tear-down slum to begin with. Obamacare is endangering the health and wellness of every single American. Obamacare is a thousand times worse than the mishandling of Katrina relief--so the analogy is ridiculous.”
Bienville on Nov 17, 2013 at 02:41:43
“your information is incorrect. the federal flood of 2005 destroyed about 80% of the residential housing in New Orleans. some of it was blighted, but most was middle class, single family homes. you're probably thinking of the lower ninth ward, when you say tear-down slum, but the fact is that neighborhood had a higher rate of owner occupation than the citywide average. over a million people were evacuated and just about every one returned to an uninhabitable home or workplace”

“How can one live in the United States and be so completely ignorant? How? I don't get it? You have the internet, learn how to use it. There is no excuse for being ignorant other than 'willful ignorance'
That is the dumbest comment of the weak...I mean week.”

“"Obamacare is endangering the health and wellness of every single American. "
That's not just an exaggeration, it's a complete lie. Since I have health insurance through work, the ACA does not affect me at all, except for the fact that it provides health coverage for many of my fellow citizens who were without it before.”

“i am not sure if you are joking, but if you aren't you are insane.
my health and wellness have only been improved by the aca. i have a job, they pay my healthcare and nothing has changed for me except for the fact that i will always be covered no matter what happens (if i get fired, get cancer, etc.).
“Obama suffers from the delusion that he is Santy Claus and the only way to help people is to stick checks in their stockings. Americans want jobs, or at least they used to--Democrats have done a good job creating a class of shiftless, entitled wards of the federal government. Maybe not being able to afford to buy little Timmy the new Xbox is the kick in the pants some of these people need to get working again.”

“Guns, alcohol, 4 a.m., car accident, disorientation, high-crime area, seeking help, accidental discharge, racial element, forty-minute police response, 54 years old, 19 years old, break-ins, blood.
Let's not try this in the media just yet. At first glance the man is guilty of something, though 2nd degree homicide looks like a stretch. Things are never as simple as they seem.”
Thomas Glenn Thornton Jr on Nov 16, 2013 at 01:40:55
“"seeking help," We don't know this. She had already fled once knowing law enforcement and medical assistance was coming.
"accidental discharge," We don't know this. The first thing most shooters in what they perceive self defense situations say is "it was an accident," but they do not mean they did not mean to shoot. They mean they meant to stop, not kill, the other but because of shock they cannot properly say this.
"racial element," The family's attorney removed this accusation after the toxicology report and the young woman's multiple felonies came to light.”
Knowitall on Nov 15, 2013 at 22:15:53
“See. This is what happens in cases like this. Immediately people start either making stuff up, exaggerating, or getting the Known facts all mixed up. For example, there was only ONE gun, the victim was unarmed, the shooting took place in Grosse Pointe, an affluent suburb of Detroit, hardly a "high crime area", no evidence of an accidental discharge OR a break in so far
So just in your short statement you have added at least 4 new "facts" that are not yet or never were in evidence.
That's how these cases spiral out of control and become so polarizing.”

“It should be negligent homicide at best. She was in the commission of her second crime, fleeing the scene of her drunk driving accident. The prosecutor is overshooting.”

“...using a shotgun shows intent to kill, reckless indifference, and intent to inflict grievous bodily harm...in other words malice aforethought. Second degree charges are NOT a stretch!
He could have stayed inside his house and call 911 and wait for the cops to come...but noooo...he went outside like Rambo...and killed an innocent black girl.
The incident happened around 1:00 a.m. Wafer did not call 911 until 4:00 a.am. What do you think he was doing for 3 hours? Trying to figure out how to get away with it??
If this had been a white woman you would be calling for his blood!”
“HP and libs love to cry crocodile tears over irresponsible parents who let their children play with loaded guns, but those who think critically aren't swayed by such mawkish appeals to ban firearms.
We've seen the disaster accompanying Obama's takeover of healthcare, and we know he aspires to control even more of our lives. We know that a day may come very soon where we need guns to protect not only our families, but the American way of life. And we're prepared.”

“Give it a rest with this guy. He was the pilot, it's his job to land the plane. It's not like he was risking his life for others--if they crashed, he would have died, too. And planes are supposed to be able to crash land on water. Enough!”
ncal on Nov 14, 2013 at 15:43:14
“His landing was something of a miracle to start with. His history -- the extraordinary lengths he went to -- to specifically focus on safety in his training and even in his avocations -- showed an extreme amount of dedication. To survival, if nothing else. He is one of the best role models to arise in decades -- an ordinary guy who strived to do his job excellently -- and deserves more attention than most of the headliners.”
