Oh, and the gun used in the shooting was acquired without a background check.

Lol, he got the gun FROM A COP. This is what people don't understand, cops are the biggest criminals there are.

Well, clearly if he had been required to get have a background check before purchasing the gun he never could have got it to begin with (10).

I think we have the beginnings of the argument that cops should not be allowed to have guns here. Keep guns out of the hands of criminals; disarm the police.

Link to article from last August where Obama takes all the credit for the state of the stock market. What are the odds he'll take credit for the current market conditions tomorrow night?

For your musing pleasures, a story that's making rounds this morning and sure to clog up your Twitter and FB feeds. Whitesboro N.Y. residents have voted to keep village seal that features an image that sure looks the hell of a lot like a white man choking the shit out of a Native American.





http://www.villagevoice.com/news/mayor-of-whitesboro-ny-insists-this-village-seal-is-not-racist-7341880

Town's official line is that the seal “depicts a friendly wrestling match that helped foster good relations between [village founder Hugh White] and the Indians."

Looks like something that belongs in the Pawnee City Hall.

Here's a drawing of a friendly game of colonial tug-of-war.

Mouse, who won that tug of war? The black people shackled up or the black people with the guns? confused.gif

I see no race, creed, color, or religion. I only see two cis men persons engaged in a wrestling match.

laugh.gif I'm just having fun Pio. Honestly don't care that much what a small city in N.Y. does, but do think it's pretty done deaf of them to keep it as it is.

In an email sent out to students in December, which was obtained by the Post-Crescent, the WIAA banned “chants by student sections directed at opponents and/or opponents’ supporters that are clearly intended to disrespect.”

The following words were reportedly included as examples:

• “Fundamentals”
• “Sieve”
• “We can’t hear you”
• “Air ball”
• “You can’t do that”
• “There’s a net there”
• “Scoreboard”
• “Season’s over” (during tournament play)

Just having fun here too. It seems the town has around 250 voting residents so I figure this is the typical SJW tempest in a teapot. If I was that little town I'd just start a gofundme page and earn some money off changing the seal.

You're just one step away from ceasing to keep score and everyone gets a trophy.

Political Correctness is the right side of history, so Wisconsin continues leading the way.
