Don't talk to me about DeWalt - I'm still picking wood chunks out of my eyes from my boss's power saw - even though I was was wearing safety glasses. Didn't their engineers ever get down over a cut when they were testing?
Dang! The guard was throwing the chunks straight up into my face. I was disappointed.
I was hoping never to see one of my childhood idols go to the "do you know who I am" card, but it finally happened. Sad day.
Well, I have gear from Craftsman and Skil right now. Oh, and a dandy biscuit joiner from O'Malley.
We're on Madeline Island just for a visit with the better half's family...no tools, just fishing rods.
Hmmm. Who are the Unsers, anyway?
Sweet! I'm going to bag it, and dream of excellent tools.
Have a good night, you ol' hijacker, you.
I predict +500 posts. :-)
We just love Irish Bread.
I presume you're on the "fillet and release" program? ;-)
Those must be the ones they've been busy with in Northern California.
You can't take me to jail, Don't you know who I am? I'm Al Unser.
My favorite is a dozen crappies early mornings in May from Williams Bay area of Lake Geneva...much butter.
Sorry; I'm too old to stay up any later.
So you think Important People should be able to blow through a roadblock?
Kerry, is that you?
Thank you. I just finished reading every reply on this thread:
If I had such low opinions and comments about the owner and mods here I wouldn't bother to be a member.
It is not obligatory to be a member here, since they hate it here so much it's good that they were banned.
I am not familiar with "clown possee" but it sounds like a site for some real losers.
You are a piece of work.
still waiting to see a thread about a cop killed on duty where people say "one less thug with a god complex to disrupt our freedoms"
Since I never posted any such thing, I'm just going to blow you off. You're obviously one of those Freepers who put words in the mouths of other posters, then proceed to beat them up over your fevered imaginings.
Speaking of pieces of work...
How in the world could this be considered "advocating a civil war"?!?
Then why don't you explain your point?
Or are you one of those Freepers who looks for any excuse to blow people off?
It is named after the Unser family. It is a large 4 lane (mostly) road. It's not a private road as the reporting might infer.
That really says it all. The Unsers knew it was wrong to run the police block and a lesser plebe would be rightly arrested for it, but gosh darnit, they're simply above the law in those parts!
This appears to have been a public road. No excuse for that behavior.
You have got to be kidding ...
I believe very firmly in property rights, but you are full of hooey.
A property owner has no right to do anything that is going to endanger his neighbors, period.
If you were Hezbollah, and you started shooting Katusha's from your backyard, and the police have reasonable cause to believe it is your yard it is coming from, they have the right to enter your property, without permission. They may need a search warrent to remove evidence, but they can enter the propoerty and stop you from firing.
If a convict escapes from jail, and the police are following him, and he runs onto your property, they can follow him there, and you have no authority to make them leave, or grant him amnesty.
The police were fully within thier rights, regardless of whether the car was on Unser's property or not. A crime occured, and the police have not only the right, but the duty, to investigate. It is called a crime scene investigation. Whether the perp was still dangerous is only something that can be assumed in hindsight. Maybe he was dead, maybe not. Maybe the gas tank was leaking and about to blow, maybe not. Maybe they just needed to tag the evidence. Who cares. Regardless, it was a crime scene. You dont contaminate crime scenes with stupid property owners.
Ask Eschoir, billy paul and ash about that...
It's your choice to not make yourself clear. Believe it or not, I'm here to learn. Did you ever consider that your initial assumptions about me might be mistaken?
And what do those banned people have to do with anything?
Well, then - let me explain it to you. This is one of those "news" items that does not demand immediate resolution. You can afford to set this on the back burner and let it ripen in the fullness of time.
A typical news addict/junkie (no names, but his initials are sinkspur) will jump into a thread like this spewing classless stuff like 'the Unsers are drunks' or "Something tells me these boys never venture out without a little liquid fortification under their belts."
These typical news junkies don't know the Unsers - they know OF the Unsers, so why are they making comments like these?
Because they don't like the Unsers. So, preface your classless remarks about the Unsers with something like "I've hated the Unsers' guts for like FOREVER, so something tells me these boys never venture out without a little liquid fortification under their belts."
As I said, there's a difference between these types of "news" threads, and the actionable ones, like the current Media/Hezbollah stuff, or the old Dan Rather/phony documents, or the impeachment war stuff.
Learning to recognize the difference can change you from a news junkie (who gets ceaselessly drunk on the never-ending flow of "news" from the Fountain of Truth) to a news observer, who is able to exercise some discernment when it comes to jumpin' in the waller.
Sinkie's comments about the Unsers were uncalled for. If you go back and review them, you'll notice the viciousness of an anonymous keyboard commando going after a public figure's character, knowing that he won't be called to account for it*.
Well, I called him to account for it.
*Disclaimer - I've said really mean things on FR about both Clintons in the past, though I don't KNOW them (of course they DID come after us, so we sort of got called to account) . Also, I don't have much of an idea who the Unsers are in life, other than the obvious stuff. Golf's my game - no other sport will do.
And furthermore, I know I didn't "ping" sinkspur to this post, and I don't care.
Except she's actually crazier...
Jesus, please let her force her way onto a crime scene. All the bluster and bravado would be tased out of her...
Those pictures should be accompanied by "Dueling Banjos."
