    He's not pro-Hillary, he's just anti-Trump. And that folks is why I keep saying we're stuck with the lesser of two evils these days. I know I'm not pro-Hillary either.

    @CrazyJoe, you pretty much summed it up for me. Exactly my sentiments.

    On a side note, just yesterday there was a gun store robbed of 29... count 'em 29 weapons. To add insult to injury (and blatant stupidity) their store security camera wasn't working (unless the robbers disabled them on purpose).

    I'm wondering just how secure was their store for someone to be able to break in.

    @domtoidi... as I keep saying, we always have to end up voting for the lesser of two evils these days. American society is suffering from an illness that I don't think we'll ever get over. Well, I guess it will be over soon. We'll die from it anyways. Thank you politicians (on both sides) for your foolishness an arrogance. You could have done better but didn't.

    Nationalism is a stupid thing, but will always arise when a government does not take care of it's OWN CITIZENS or puts the needs of foreign nationals before it's own citizens. . The EU went down the excessive progressive route with little to no discretion about how they did it at the cost of their natural born/indigenous citizens. Remember the article says if they don't leave, they may just cut the amount of control the EU can have over their nation.

    This has actually always been a good idea. At some really awesome companies in the US (and maybe other parts of the world) there is a "nap room" available for employees to use on their breaks/lunch times etc. 15-20mins of rest (or more on lunch break) creates a more aware and re-energized employee from mental and/or physical exhaustion.

    Hopefully this will take off beyond their school, but they have to implement it effectively and safely.

    Trump once again is running his mouth on stupid. While he assumes profiling the people instead of deconstructing the ideology will somehow "fix" the problem. A Muslim can stop being Muslim at any time any where of their own free will. But Islam is what it is and would need a gargantuan effort to change it's ideological dictates proposed by it's founder and is the source of the problem we're having today.

    Knowing Trump and his cronies though, they'll just start profiling anyone who has skin darker than theirs. Cos' as I said before, some people still don't understand that it is a "religion" not an "ethnicity". People of any race can follow a religion.

    I'll never forget the uneducated idiots in the US that started assaulting those of East Indian descent and the Sikhs because they "though" they "looked" Muslim.

    As has been probably said before, why hasn't there been training on dealing with bears, and actual effective methods of repelling bears. Many folks I know have been camping, and since I myself have taken quite a few hikes in the mountains. There is a reason many people are taught how to take care of themselves in areas where dangerous wild animals live. They need to get with the times.

    Should Britain leave, it will certainly hit them hard. But like all necessary things, it will force them to have a hard look at their welfare and immigration system. The less you have to take care of your own citizens, the less likely you are to look at appeasing foreign nationals or lazy bumpkins to continue lackluster productivity.

    About 7 years ago there was a PBS "Independent Lens" program about this Bacha Bazi. Not really surprised at all since it's been going on for centuries. ME countries are known for their practically no limits corruption in positions of power in government. It's like the name of the game in certain countries where if you don't bring a bribe, you don't get any service or support even from a government agency.

    These folks are just all kinds of sick in the head. And it's not getting better sadly.

    Mother's basic primal instinct kicked in, and it saved her son's life. Betcha that lion is gonna think a bit harder around humans. She fought it off bare handed so. I'm chalking this up to 3 wins/6 losses of man vs. wild animals.

    Now i'm not saying Trump is Hitler, it's just that if you changed the word Muslim in Jew his rhetoric would be 100 percent racist (not that it already isn't anyways).

    @Prossnip42 For the umpteenth billionth time. Islam is a religion NOT an ethnicity!

    There is a big difference between an ethnic Jew (a person descended from the tribe of Judea) and a person who is of the Jewish faith (a person who is not an ethnic Jew but follows Judaism). Islam would love it if you kept trying to turn it into an "ethnicity" so instead of blaming the Islamist violence on their religious texts and founders teachings and ideology, it's just a "race" thing that's "in the genetic code". Islam is not a genetically instigated belief, no more than any other religion.

    I wasn't born Christian, it wasn't predetermined by my parents DNA. My parents attempted to indoctrinate me on their religious beliefs, but I still could choose who or what I believe in. The same thing for Omar Mateen, he wasn't born Muslim, it wasn't in his genetic code, but his parents indoctrinated him on Islam. And once again the ideology showed itself for the violent code of conduct it prescribes it's followers.

    Sad way to lose a child. But lesson learned I think. I'm curious as to whether or not the resort had sign posted, "beware of alligators" or something similar. If not then they deserve the upcoming lawsuit for not providing a safe area to the customers.

    No, Les Miserables never had such a thing written into the play for the centuries it's been around. Some nitwit decided to push their own agenda in a classic play. I wish people would stop altering classics just to satisfy their own ego. Les Miserables never had anything to do with homosexuality, but with disparity. If they want to make a play about homosexuality, then they should make their own play. It's been done before.

    Tell me, do rednecks shoot up other rednecks? Isn't black-on-black crime more notorious in america than say, white-on-white crime?

    @Misunderstood, oh you seem to have forgotten the motorcycle gang violence. Hell's angels is just the most recognized group though. It's there, you just preferred not to see it. They're as equally thug life as the best of 'em.

    @Cleo, yes Modern Hostile warfare.

    Back in the previous wars, hostiles did not have access to drones, dirty nukes, and do not rely so much on IEDs, and Terrorist/guerilla tactics, such as finding cover behind civilian fronts and not giving two shakes about how many civilians get caught in the crossfire as long as it supported their propaganda.

    In WW2 it was hardly conceivable to todays modern warfare. The enemies (hostiles) are different than the are today.

    I guess I'm one of the smart people. I don't think I need to invest in a firearm.... I think the money would be better invested in body armor/bulletproof vests. That way the only person at fault is the person with the gun. And my survivability from being shot at goes much higher than owning a gun for "self protection". I survive the shooting, the gun-owner (legal or illegal) will have a lot of splainin' to do!
