    The part you're missing. I understand that some of you are under the impression that an alligator even hissing at your child is an attack, but it's not. If two alligators were "chasing" a child with the intent to actually grab it, either that man needs to be in the Olympics or the alligators were engaged in posturing rather than attacking. Or the child was all the way in the water, which you did not mention? That would slow the father down even further. Gators don't generally chase down prey on land, and they tire of trying to sprint. Humans don't run too quickly in water, where the alligators would have easily caught up to the child if they were racing towards it. The "pet alligator" comment has been mentioned in this thread already... by me. Hand-feeding alligators does make them liable, as does creating a safe breeding ground for alligators in the old water park. I'm not sure why you're trying to make an argument that a "stay away from the water" sign with alligators and snakes mentioned is enough. If I am walking through a garden area at that resort, and a snake bites me, can I argue that I stayed away from the water and still got bitten? Obviously Disney knows there are snakes, and their sign made me think the snakes were only near the water. Do you see why I say that the signs don't magically remove all liability? The same goes for startling a sunning alligator (on land and not necessarily near the water). I'm not near the water. Disney can say they warned me all they want, but the sign would be very insufficient. It would also not be enough if I lost a few fingers to an alligator snapping turtle. I've seen gators at Sea World, too, btw. I also have seen sharks in the ocean, scorpions in the desert, bear prints in the woods, and gang members in Baltimore. If I'd been harmed by any of the aforementioned, I would hope my family wasn't awful enough to sue. It wouldn't be my fault for getting harmed, but it also would not be everyone else's fault for not putting a sign up to warn me.

    Christians have provided evidence that Paul affirmed the doctrines of Christ. It's just that people like yourself refuse to accept the evidence.

    The claims that Jesus was an anarchist and that Paul was a statist are simply anachronisms. As such, they make both of your assertions moot points, so there's no need to argue with you about the merits of your claims.

    Pro tip: He very likely would not have seen an alligator in dim light (night or twilight) regardless of how well-lit the dock was, but there you go. Signs, lighting, and constant armed patrols. I think that about covers it so far.

    lol ? That mayor obviously lots his/her brain somewhere. Those people are illegally in France. If they go to Britain from France, they will be sent back. That is how you control a border. You send back unwelcome people. Not the most intelligent fellow this mayor. I do feel some resentment. He/she should just shut up and see what happens, what if this thing works out for the UK ? Then what ? What if, the future may be a lot brighter with a whole different Europe, without an EU, with cooperation and trade but without the loss of sovereignty. Would this mayor and other EU-philes admit they were wrong ? Or is their only interest forming a socialist superstate - my former forum location - the EUSSR ? p.s. I didn't bother to look at the gender of said mayor. Don't care frankly. She is an idiot.

    Not really, no. If it's about police brutality, then it should be about that. The police have managed to end or ruin a very large number of lives, not all of them black. Many of them had the unfortunate overlapping characteristic of being non-upper class. Whipping around and yelling "No justice, no peace! No racist police!" doesn't draw attention to the "real problems" at all. It paints it as the police simply being racist and drawing conclusions about blacks, particularly younger black men. It glosses over the notion that the police are completely out of control in a number of situations. Looking for a suspect? Military equipment is a feasible thing to bring into the search. You can also fire into a vehicle as long as it really, really looks like what you think the suspect was last driving, and if you can justify it as being "suspicious."

    You're going to bust something if you continue on like this. There were not "multiple gator attacks." There was one attack resulting in injury, and a number of posturing incidents. That does make a difference. The warning sign that's been put up does not warn people about previous gator attacks, nor that gators can attack, nor the parameters of that gator attack. It's really not much better than the "no swimming" sign. It says to stay away from the water, and there's a rope fence. If someone gets attacked on the sand, they'll say this was insufficient. If you can't see that, wait a bit longer and it will sadly happen. I'm not sure why they think telling people to stay away from the water will prevent snakebites; that one's just puzzling.

    When you read much of the literature in favor of anarchism, it seems that anarchism starts off with 5 basic assumptions, philosophically speaking: Truth is relative. Life is random. People are basically good. A person can change his own life if he chooses to. The goal of life is self-satisfaction. Building a civic/economic philosophy on those basic assumptions opens the door wide open for an elite group to manipulate society very easily, in my opinion. Thus, anarchism (no matter if it's anarcho-capitalism, anatcho-communism, anarcho-primitivism, or any other school of thought) cannot solve the problem of having an elite manipulating and ruling over society.

    Boris is a good guy. But yeah, Farage will be out of a job soon... So he might run for parliament. I don't think Boris is the person to watch. It's the rest of the government, the people who lost. They are now desperately looking at ways to reverse the outcome. Having some knowledge of how the EU works, that is the most scary part.

    FIRST THEY IGNORE YOU. check THEN THEY RIDICULE YOU. check THEN THEY FIGHT YOU. check THEN YOU WIN. check Let the whining begin, I almost laughed myself to death today listening to the radio where people where moaning and bitching about how this was the wrong result. Awesome, perfect comedy. What a bunch of idiots. First you treat people like they don't matter, then you lose, then you start whining ? These people need to take a look in the mirror and get some self-confidence.

    I sure hope NEXIT is NEXT. But my prediction, having heard what the EU elites have said today is... The EU is going to fall apart on it's own anyway. The only thing these elites are interested in is complete integration and their dream is a USofEU, they won't stop so the people will stop them. This in turn will mean that the 'leftish' atmosphere that's in Europe will lose credibility and conservatism will probably gain some influence.

    I've always thought of it in limits of law and legitimacy too. Tyranny of the individual or several individuals is preferable to tyranny of an entire Collective group. The least amount of control over another's life the better off people are to escape tyranny.

    I am not an expert, but the experts that I have listened to say the scope you want is a NightForce -- they are expensive (about $1,700+) but you get what you pay for. Optics are first rate, the scopes are really durable and hold their zero. Reports are you can take the scope off, beat someone over the head with it and it will still hold its zero. :D Worth looking into...

    BMI rates are also based and calculated on white, european men. Does that make me a racist and a sexist? No. It's fact, and it still poses an issue for anyone not in that demographic, especially for blacks and post-menopausal women, and it's been researched and proven.

Marching to War Requires Two Feet

Marching to War Requires Two Feet
by Matt Malkus

America has become a nation marching to war in lockstep, left foot following right foot towards the all-too-certain future that has already befallen the body's other half. Crushing electoral defeats serve as little deterrent in a political system where the pendulum swings comfortably on the same axis, the defeat coming at the hands of the opposite extreme which just as aggressively pursues the same noble goals via the same dead
