  • Brave Judge Refuses to Throw Accused White Cop to the Mob, Sums Up Ruling in 1 EPIC Sentence

    "That was fascinating information. Thank you. All this technology is slightly before my time, and it is very interesting. I am learning about this archaic concept called “vapor lock” right now. I don’t think vapor lock is even possible in a modern car. Thoughts?

    No "vapor lock" is not prevalent in modern car motors because of the advanced fuel systems. Back when, if the fuel line got over-heated (fuel line against manifold, etc) it would turn the fuel into a gas, which would cause a gap from the fuel line to the carburetor and deprive the carb of fuel and stall the motor. That's why I have clips on my fuel lines in my 58 Chevy to keep them from touching my intake manifold.

    "No, he’s going to be a Marxist nightmare for us for another 30 years."

    I disagree. I believe that once American goes down the rabbit hole due to Obambi's policies, there will be a new awakening (revolution of sorts).

    While many think once the Boomer warriors are gone, all is lost. I disagree. We have the Millennials who have fought in Desert Storm and later in the Aftganistan and Iraq wars. Think about the 10's of thousands of those brave men/women. I refuse to believe they have all forgotten their Oath.

    "I started driving in the 1960’s. The only way to get an automobile to “backfire” on que, is to intentionally turn the key off for a few seconds than back on. The vehicle needs to be in gear and moving. Cars made prior to column locks were easy. Once column locks began, it is increasingly difficult. Automatics forget it. Rarely does any vehicle manufactured since WWII backfire just driving down the street.

    I also grew up driving in the 60's. I remember 50's and 60's cars that often backfired through the exhaust that sounded like gun-fire. Altough, back-firing through the carb didn't produce such a loud noise; it usually did a little pop and catch fire due to bad carb adjustment or dirty jets. Mostly, explosive tailpipe backfires were caused by incorrect degrees to top-dead-center due to bad distributor alignment or worn contacts on the distributor cap or worn points or even bad plug wires...sometimes a bad coil or failing condenser. All which affect correct timing of the internal explosion.

    Yes, I remember you could do the switch off and then on to get a loud backfire out of the exhaust if you're okay to blow out your muffler.

    Disclaimer: I currently own a 1958 Chevy Impala and while turning the distributor cap which adjusts the cylinder combustion timing, I can get that loud gunshot like out the exhaust. It was the nature of internal combustion engines at the time before electronic timing. In fact many low-riders would retard their inition to get a rap, rap, rap sound with their exhaust glasspacks with they eased off the pedal. Of course, it was detrimental to motor.

    "The car was a Chevy Malibu, 1978 or 79. If it has the original drivetrain the timing is adjustable, and if the car was out of tune or the carburetor hasn’t been overhauled after all these years, it could be very well be prone to backfiring."

    Of course for those us who know what distributor (relic) timing is and how finicky the jets/adjustments on a carburetor can be, entirely possible...not to mention a bad coil or spark plug wires shorting.

    "We need a military revolt against this traitor."

    I spent 11 years in the relative safety of the US Navy supporting our Constitution, citizens, and civilian leadership. While I won't call for a military coup, I would sit back and hope for the best if it were to happen. It's worked well for Egypt against Obama's supported Muslim Brotherhood regime.

    Unfortunately, with the purge of so many top Generals and Admirals from political expediency, there is probably no one left to initiate nor guide such an effort. We are out of Eisenhowers, Pattons, Halseys ... not to mention strong principled Fedgov Legislators.

    We can only wait and keep our powder dry. I am so glad I'm at end days. Never thought I'd be ashamed to be an American. I fear for my children and grand-children.

    "Hopefully they can rebuild but I doubt it. Once the taint of liberalism infects an organization it is nearly impossible to cut out the cancer."

    Disagree. Once we have an American CIC back in charge, the top military commanders will do a quick turn around. There is nothing wrong with E-7's and below. They full fill their Oath daily, as do many Officers in lower ranks.

    The problem lies within the PC flag officers who go along to get along to further their careers. Remember, how many of our top generals/admirals have either been fired or retired due to Obambi's policies. Once he's gone, I'd put my money on our military getting its sh*t back together. I know the training - many here don't and only obsess about the politics of the upper echelon.

    While I was a simple aviation Navy sailor, I saw how much influence Chief Petty Officers (E-7) had on the ship. I would think that to be the same in the all Armed Forces. The Academy or OCS graduates learn early on how much the upper enlisted control the destiny of a ship or platoon or even company.

    "All because everyone wanted to be “cool” and elect the first Black president."

    Yup, we now live in a "Reality Show" culture. As much I enjoy The Soup on E! TV, that channel is mostly Karcrapians non-stop. Then you have the "Bachelor" crap that is so scripted and still "Big Brother" or some such inane sh*t.

    I've looked at every one of those bogus shows where everyone is just nasty and giving crap to each other. I couldn't get past their low-class white-trash behavior. Yet, Maury Povich (sp) has a highly popular show that has the same theme over and again: Who's your Daddy from DNA tests? It's usually the same fat ass black women who go off in a frenzy when they find that daddy isn't daddy. Most are black trash, but some are white trash. I can't believe people actually stand in line to get a seat to watch that trash.

    Gawd, I so long for the 50', of course without the racial discrimination. Still, that was an innocent time for our youth until us Boomers let them run wild during the 60's.

    If you really want to understand why our culture/country is going downhill, read, "Slouching Towards Gomorrah" by Robert H. Bork. It's about 10 years old, but he explains why our education, political, and social structure has broken down from the once greatest society on this rock.

    The cover-all General Article 134? Of course not.

    I hate, I say again I HATE, people like these. Sorry Obambi/Holder/Lynch, hate is a legitimate human emotion the same as love, fear, compassion, envy, etc. Some are good and some are bad for mankind, but they all are intrinsic to the human mind/heart. You'll never change it no matter how much you preach and throw more of our money to make such a "Change"

    Sorry Obuttf*ck, you're "change" only makes human beings want more and produce less, which in the long run allows them less. I witnessed first hand from the 60's communes and you and your socialist/communist ilk couldn't be more wrong.

    You really think you're changing America for the better from your Alinsky teachings. You will go down in history as the man who deliberately intended to destroy THE greatest experiment in self-governance that so many around the Word have copied. I hate you and all your so-called "progressive" ilk. I wish no immediate threat to you, but if you just go away and die early by natural causes, I'll probably just go out and shine my classic 58 Impala and laugh.

    "In a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a “redeemed believer in Christ.” The Air Force Times reports that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olson’s remarks, is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and "aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions."

    I can't believe I'm reading this! And who the f*ck is the "Military Religious Freedom Foundation" to call for an out-spoken Christian to be court-martialed? I don't recall and haven't read recently the the Uniform Code of Military Justice (USMJ) denying those of faith speaking out in favor of their beliefs.

    Although, active duty military is restricted from taking political positions publically, when did it become "unforgivable crimes and transgressions" to state your faith???

    Checked out their site and they seem to support military/veterans. I don't get their problem.

    "AMEN! ???? Quite the odd response to an anti-Christian post."

    Apparently, you didn't read or understand the last lines of my post. You prove my point about Christian bias. I love what true Christians stand for and I love the message of Jesus Christ. BTW, did you know that a couple of our Founding Fathers were agnostic (as am I) and one was an atheist?

    Again, since you missed it: Judeo/Christian values built this country and I admire those who subscribe to those values. At the same time, I have little use for American liberal Jews, while at the same time being a huge supporter of Israel.

    Since I've layed my cards on the table, tell me what Christian denomination are you and why is your sect better than other Christians'? Also, tell me why the Pope has the ear of God when he is VOTED in my other fallible humans? Nevermind, don't bother. I've had this discussion before and all I get is read the Bible, as written by men who thought the world was flat.

    Understood. I'm just sick of all the chatter here and elsewhere about how religious beliefs should even weigh in regarding who is our Commander in Chief. Basic morals yes - religious denominations no.

    Don't bother to tell me my morals come from a white-robed guy in the sky. Again, they come from what I know what works best for humanity: sympathy, empathy, compassion and logic - all basic human traits. If I was given those traits by a superior being, then I thank him. If not, than I thank myself for recognizing them. Best.

    Interestingly, Cuba used to be a refuge for ex-patriots before the Fidel Castro's stupid communist revolution and turned it into a lost cause.

    Hoping what I'm reading of late regarding Raul Castro is true. Since Fidel is now out of power and may die any day, maybe his brother will see the benefit of capitalism. And no, don't give any credit to Obambi. Raul was already talking about change before Obambi lifted some restrictions regarding Cuba.

    One of the problems with our institutions of higher learning is something no one ever addresses.

    That is, that every professional/habitual student needs to submit an original thesis on anything to get their doctorate degree and/or professorship. Since the colleges/universities are now controlled by the "hippie" generation, any thesis will have a slant towards their teachers' socialist ideology teachings.

    The above is even a bigger problem than the biased MSM.

    Although ex-military, I've never seen bodies fly apart nor the aftermath (although carried many body bags on my ship during last days of VN). So I really don't know what psychological impact that would have on me. Guess I've just been hardened from 65 years of life and seeing enough death and blood that I'm okay with certain people being blown apart.

    I thought lethal injection was now cruel and unusual punishment because of one instance. Forgot the particulars in that execution, but there are thousands who are anesthetized every day and know nothing until they wake up. During that time their intravenous line could be fed simple killer drugs.

    Personally, I'd like to see us go back to public hangings. I'd pull the lever myself. However, having been an entrepreneur, I'd rather develop a cable channel for the hangings and other criminal sentencing.

    I'm thinking the "Justice Room".

    Kinda biased by the Washington Times, but yes, we are conspiring to promote Constitutional conservatism. What a scoop. Pfft.

    Wow. That is one of the best if not THE best graphics I’ve seen of Obambi’s racial bias. Saved to the hard drive. Thank you.

    "I’d love to see a fourteen day walkout by police nation-wide. Turn every prisoner loose that is in their holding cells. See what takes place."

    Kinda agree, but don't want proven murderers on the streets, but your basic thug, okay.

    Let's support the bleeding hearts and there so-called compassion for their fellow man and see how they react when burglarize, mugged, or attacked. Can't you just hear the screams for more police funding?...as they get their clueless unarmed asses kicked or deaded?

    Those who they think the poor wittle black boys should get more more money to fix their days of "slavery" will be the first to go once the rioters have the balls to infiltrate white neighborhoods.

    Your suggestion has been done to a small degree in California because of liberal complaints of over crowding. Many of those released criminals have gone on to further crimes. There's a word for them - recidivists. However, Utopia is just a dream away if we just spend mo' money, mo' money on crap like "midnight basketball" that worked so well. Pfft.

    My solution: start arresting and harshly punish the baby-daddies who leave their children. It wouldn't be difficult to track them down. Just tell the welfare Mother she is cut off until she names them.

    Question: Didn't we meet at BobJ's house or some other early FR event? Maybe the demonstration in Palm Springs?

    "officers have stepped back from engaging in proactive policing, because they often see the same violent criminals they arrest immediately released on to the streets."

    Not new, but increasing.

    Lead the way England. Numerous other countries are now starting to question their political correctness regarding Muslims. With England as a leader, more countries will fall in line. Eventually, no matter who is in office in America, they will have to follow suit.

    England, find your hidden potential to be great once again.

    "He has a Cuban lineage, which appears pretty pure. Don’t know how well he speaks Spanish, but I’m sure he heard the languange all his life and could if he lived in Cuba."

    I care nothing of a politician's lineage, race, ethnicity, gender or childish foibles. I only care about their moral and Constitutional standing. Ted Cruz gets what made this nation great, and why we were once the envy of the World and why so many copied our example.

    Ted Cruz is the epitome of a classy, brilliant, patriotic man's man. Why he doesn't poll above Rubio I don't get. I can sorta understand Walker with all his executive accomplishments, but he is not the statesman nor orator that is Cruz.

    Every time Cruz talks, acts, reacts to a given situation, I believe I am seeing our beloved Ronald Reagan re-incarnated.

    Even if Cruz isn't our nominee, I just hope he continues to stand by his solid moral and Constitutional principles and is not corrupted by DC politics, which has happened to so many.

  • Chris Rock: It's 'Weird,' White Kids Never Get Shot By Cops

    I watch Cops, Cops Reloaded, and Alaska State Troopers and have seen many white criminals get shot, especially after vehicle chases.

    Like someone mentioned above, it doesn't fit into the MSM agenda because shooting a white person doesn't create controversy and build a story they can milk.

    Chris Rock is just another low-information celebrity who opens mouth before doing some research. There is the known statistic that blacks are the cause of more crime by a larger percentage of their population.

    Solution: start penalizing baby-daddies who just walk away from their children, including all races and ethnicities. That's one bureaucracy I would approve.

    "Question: are you Ok playing old Metallica songs and who buys the booze while rehearsing?"

    If you want to play Metallica, then you buy the booze! You're welcome to come over and go crazy, but if that's your thing, YOU sing it and I'll go hyper on the drums like their drummer does. I prefer lessor is more.

    Metallica has always been noise to me. I was more Def Leppard at that time with their melodies and solid rhythms, even with a one-armed drummer.

    Although I'm looking for something different, c'mon on over and let's see what you got. Freepmail me.

    BTW, my vocal range is similar to Elvis Presleys' range or Roy Orbinson without hitting his highest notes. Guess I'm around a tenor to alto, but with practice I can hit some high notes.

    Think Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love". It starts in a low baritone and then modulates up into tenor/alto. Then again, many Oldies don't have men singing soprano unless like Frankie Valle of the Four Seasons who actually sang in falsetto. Just letting you know that when I practice, my range is perfect for most Oldies. Did falsetto with a couple of Buddy Holly's songs in my bands and he actually had a range that most people don't realize.

    If you're looking for 80's hair band vocalizations, they were mostly in the upper register. However, with practice, I can actually sing, "Little Child of Mine". It's a reach, but I've done it.
