    Even the Nazis didn’t conduct cavity searches in public. Especially not over littering.

    If only those of us around 40 had some way of replenishing our dying genes.

    If only we had some way to ensure our survival of the future...

    If only.

    As to the length of a civil war...

    If only we had millions of veterans of America’s last decade of war. If only we had millions of right leaning veterans who spent 10 years learning how to fight against and in some case for an insurgency.

    If only.

    Well, I’m going to be surrendering today. You convinced me.

    It’s definitely one or the other.

    The only amusing part of this was all the knee jerk reactions by the left when the original video was printed.

    Now as more and more video emerges they look like the fools and dupes they are.

    Another Freeper on another thread posted the following appears nearly 18 grand has been raised for this man so far.

    Take that, parasites. You tore up his business in the name of “workers rights,” and the right wing helped him back on his feet with some money for his trouble to boot.

  • Conservatives can be persuaded to care more about the environment, study finds

    Notice how they frame the study as if they’re studying some primitive society who must be conditioned to do the right thing.

    Notice the glaring lack of studies of “liberals” (leftists) by the same universities.

    “...moral obligations to care about the natural environment and protect it from harm, a theme that resonates more powerfully with liberals, they added, than with conservatives.”

    Right. So these leftists live in the woods and eat only fallen leaves, right?

    They don’t have larger living spaces than need dictates (not that I think you should have to live that way)...multiple cars...closets full of shoes...the latest gadgets...etc etc. They don’t eat out at restaurants...waste food...throw out bags and bags of garbage a week. They don’t buy and use throwaway goods. Unlike us beastly conservatives.

    They claim to care more...that’s all. They don’t live it. They use false compassion to make their empty lives seem meaningful.

  • War over ‘sexist’ Queens statue

    Males created the statue, which depicts sirens as women because males created the myths.

    When a man first came up with the idea of a siren, who lures you with its beautiful voice/form to your destruction, he made it female.

    Because it had to be. Because heterosexual men are very unlikely to be lured to their deaths by a male voice, no matter how melodic. Men would be yelling “shut the hell up, will you” from passing ships. You’d end up “luring” in a bunch of angry guys who wanted to chop your head off.

    Male there’s a truly horrifying mythical creature.

    Well honey, if women want to create a rich tapestry of myths and if a woman wants to carve a wonderful statue based on those myths we men certainly won’t mind. Complaining about the men who actually did those things is easier and more satisfying though.

    I miss the days when women were women (and gloried in being women) and didn’t sound like perpertually jealous little brothers.

  • Loaded semi-automatic handgun found in package of frozen meat [w/video]

    It’s a very popular caliber in Mexico. Mexican citizens are prohibited from owning “military” calibers such as .45ACP and 9MM.

    Since 1911s have been chambered in .38 Super for decades and are not considered a “military caliber” (whatever that really means) the 1911 in .38 Super is very popular there.

    My theory is someone got whacked in a Mexican slaughter house, and having seen too many American mafia movies they thought it would be funny to wrap the gun up with some meat for some peon to find.

    I think some nerd hero will quickly step forth to offer a solution to that problem with a hardware based “black box emulator.”

    "Zimmerman, who is Hispanic and is charged with..."

    A cynical person might see some relationship between those two sentences. Where oh where did "White Hispanic" go?

    Nah, I'm sure CNN decided to drop the whole White Hispanic charade for other reasons.

    I didn’t know that about Annie Oakley.

    It kind of puts her in a new light. Most people threaten to sue and then fail to follow through...Annie Oakley sued 55 times. Presumably in 55 different jurisdictions. Back when travel was train, ship, or horse.

    I don’t know about cowboy type toughness but going through 55 lawsuit over six years shows a certain bulldog tenacity that is intimidating.

    Your argument fails once people realize Spain is in...wait for it...Europe...and just chock full of White people.

    So to be an “old line” Spanish family is to be a family of White people.

    "So that, when coming out of a dark tunnel, you can dilate their pupils and they won't see what you're trying to warn them about?

    As I think about what was probably going on during the scene, especially how fast those trains pull in, I'm surprised anyone thought to do anything."

    My what you just wrote, especially the part in bold.

    Occam's Razor...the photog thought to do what he was trained to do...take pictures.

    I don't want to hear some soccer excuse about how he not only had time to think "I'll warn the train driver with my flash! Yeah!" but also "Better not blind him with it while I'm doing it!" as the train bears down on the poor fellow.

    Combine that with the perfectly framed pictures and it's obvious what happened.

    Next thing you know all the people who had their phones out will claim they were trying to text the train operator to Stop! but they couldn't find the exclamation mark on their phone.

    “Trying to signal the train operator was probably the wisest thing to try”

    Isn’t it amazing how well composed his accidental shots are when he was simply trying to warn the operator with his flash?

    If I were warning someone with a flashing light I’d be sure to point it right at them. Makes sense, right? And since the flash is pointing where the camera is focused...I’d expect the operator of the train to be the center of the shot.

    Yet they’re so well composed.

    Crazy luck, that.

    As for punishment...what punishment could there be?

    But don’t stand by and watch a man die so that you can get a great shot...and then expect people to like you.

  • Barefoot Man Not Homeless: Jeffrey Hillman, Given Boots By NYPD Officer, Has Bronx Apartment

    I didn’t read a word of this story or watch the video when it originally came out.

    Because I knew it was BS.

    America is awash in a sea of discarded/extra shoes/boots/socks.

    It is literally impossible to go without shoes here. One time some fellow employees found a pair of boots in the work dumpster...brand new Timberlands...I wore them for work boots for 2 years until they fell apart. Looking back they were probably murder boots that had been tossed but I wasn’t going to let perfectly good boots in my size go to waste. And I’ve never been a hobo.

    And even if that weren’t true...if used foot wear still had value in America, and we didn’t have literally billions of pairs of unwanted shoes...then I might believe a hobo was sitting around in the cold city shoeless.

    The story stank from the beginning. My sympathy is with the officer for getting taken. Hopefully it causes him to think about what being “homeless” in America really means, and how manipulative the vast majority are.

    As an aside...I once got into an argument with a hobo that always begs at a local intersection.

    Hobo: You don’t know how hard it is to live in the woods.
    Me, from the window of my work truck, begrimed from a day’s labor: You don’t know how hard it is to get up every morning and go to work.

    That hobo refuses to look at me anymore...and I’m pretty sure him and the three other hobos that share that spot have a trailer in a trashy little trailer park about a half mile from their begging spot.

    As I re-read this wall of text I realize it comes across as me disliking hobos. And that’s exactly right...I have no respect for beggars. I used to live in a city that has a high percentage of panhandlers...they’d come up and ask for money, I’d tell them I’d give them a quarter if they told me a joke, or did a little dance. I guess they were all too dignified to do so because I never had a single taker.

    Imagine that...a famous celebrity being apologized to by the establishment after being caught red handed.

    I bet you think Michael Jackson just liked being around children, right?

    “The rock star Pete Townshend was yesterday cautioned by police and placed on the sex offenders register for five years following his admission that he accessed child pornography on the internet.

    He was arrested in January as part of Operation Ore, the largest investigation into child pornography in the UK. He admitted using his credit card to access images but claimed they were for “research” for a book.”

    Did Scotland Yard apologize for making the celebrity confess to the crime?

    It is amazing to me that we’re having this conversation. What hold does pop culture have on your minds?
