    I don't see North-Korea as a major threat. They want to survive, they won't attack. The only thing you worry about is what happens when their 'government' implodes. Yes, not sure what will happen though. Ah well, even during the cold war there was (some) cooperation between Russia and the US in space. Great thing if you ask me. The Russians are good at space-shit as well. But yeah well, there is not one direction everything in the world is heading to. There are many opposing things that when combined together may allow you to predict where the future is headed. Life sucks, but at least it's interesting.

    Why ? I haven't seen a petstore here sell a puppy or kitten in over 15 years. People have plenty of places to buy a puppy or kitten directly from the breeder.. Now I don't agree with this legislation because I'm a libertarian but also because it's not going to solve the problem it's supposed to solve. I would however think it's better if people get their puppies and kittens directly from loving breeders than from any kind of wholesale operation. These are animals that especially early in their life need a lot of love and care in order to grow up to well behaving loving pets, it's much better if they go directly from their mother to the arms of a loving owner. That's just a fact.

    While I think this is good in practice I do not believe in legislating such things. If you disagree with something that is happening, create social pressure so people will want to change their practice. I purchased my puppy from loving breeders who are very knowledgeable and who's lives revolve around their dogs. They live from the sale of the dogs they breed but they're not a puppy mill. This kind of thing I'd like to support, people who have passion for what they are doing.. Instead of trying to change things that won't solve an existing problem.

    I understand there are differences, however, when places are hit by hurricanes this seems to make more of a news story than a regular storm which has equal wind speeds and precipitation rates... :p That's all. I guess it sounds more impressive in the news. Of course, I'm not speaking about the 130mph+ hurricanes here, but the slightly lower speeds. Btw, I saw a waterspout a few weeks ago when I was driving home, these happen every year a bunch of times but rare to actually see them.. I made a picture of the remnant of the funnel, maybe I'll upload that later.

    This is interesting... There is something I don't really get however, every year in the fall we have these storms with up to 80mph winds, these are quite normal here to have a number of times a year. How is this so much different from a hurricane, is that a definition thing ? I mean, getting hit by a hurricane with 80mph winds or a normal fall-storm, what is the difference ?

    I had fun at my work one time, where I was told an engineer and a manager tried drilling holes in concrete to attach some stuff, with a cordless drill... I then spotted one of them looking in a room where they were not going to find a hammer drill, and asked what they were looking for... Then when I was told, I said, follow me to my car, I've got one with me, 10 minutes later all the necessary holes were drilled. But yeah, what can I say...

    She said he was able to for over an hour and no one stopped him. Unless he didn't actually wait to kill himself until the door was finally breached, or he was shot by someone who then left, free as a bird, yes. He was able. He might have been down to the few rounds he had saved for himself, so chose not to. He might have decided to neatly stack his empty magazines and sweep up 90% of the spent casings instead. But he was able. Or was he? What do you know that we don't? If things went down according to the Official Narrative, then he was able to. If you're going to nitpick, pick real nits. Don't pick imaginary nits.

    Ending the Fed will stop enabling the stupid people in Washington from doing even more stupid things that even all of us together cannot afford. Like, for instance, letting the lawyers run the hospitals, letting the politicians dictate what kind of health care every man, woman and child in the country gets, and using the FDA to shield Big Pharma from liability for the dangerous stuff they peddle as cure-all panaceas. Not to mention shoving the FBI into situations like Las Vegas, to impose odd agendas on local law enforcement and limit the information they can disseminate. Ending the Fed can do that. All of that. And make people less despondent and hopeless as their wages and savings cease to be devalued every single day. Ceasing to turn 'stupid people', as you so delicately put it, who manage to land a spot in the middle class into the working poor could lead to them doing fewer stupid things, no?

    Of course it is. Step one: General Motors spends millions on some feature. Step two: General Motors markets it and sees if anyone cares. Step three A: The public likes it, so GM enjoys additional sales while the other companies spend millions developing the same thing, or pays GM for their patented version of it. Step three B: The public yawns, so GM pays half of Congress to make it mandatory, so other companies will be forced to also spend millions developing the same thing, or pay GM for their patented version of it.

    What I'm trying to say is, just because this was a real event and real people really did die does not mean no one is pointing cameras at crisis actors. Too often someone sees that a crisis actor is employed after one of these things and jumps to the conclusion that the whole thing is some kind of Hollywood production, and no one got hurt. That winds up being very counterproductive. But there are valid reasons why a crisis actor might be employed, even though there are real victims who could be interviewed instead. The presence of real victims does not make the existence of crisis actors impossible, and the presence of crisis actors does not make the existence of real victims impossible. To see either one and jump to either conclusion is a logical fallacy. All it proves when we catch the news pointing their cameras at crisis actors is that we've uncovered yet more fake news, not that there is no news at all. It takes more than proving there are victims to debunk the rather obvious conclusion that certain so-called journalists are manufacturing footage for whtatever reason, just as it takes more than debunking fake news to prove that nothing happened. When I said 'these girls' I was referring specifically to the two alleged victims in the Inside Edition and ABC footage, not the deceased. Clear enough?

    Claiming the whole thing was faked and no one was hurt is a handy way of discrediting anyone who doubts any part of the Official Narrative. That said, the handy thing about crisis actors is, you can point a camera at them in full confidence they won't go off script. While injured people tend to be in pain, drugged up, lacking makeup and generally depressing, crisis actors can be upbeat and make good television. And they can't talk about inconvenient things they noticed, because they aren't actual eyewitnesses. So, are these girls injured or crisis actors? And what does it mean?

    Trusting those who claim a monopoly on holding and examining the primary evidence does not necessarily equate to finding out the truth. Watching and reading the media 'news organizations' which lay claim to being the closest to the authorities and pretend to the throne of 'mainstream credibility' does not necessarily equate to finding out the truth. People can believe in those things and consider people who don't to be bat-guano crazy, but the truth of the matter is the objective truth of the matter, and the truth is that the truth is seldom forthcoming from those sources any more. So what's left? If a person wants to know the truth, what can be done but the Sherlock Method--put everything on the table, eliminate the impossible, and believe whatever is left, no matter how improbable? Is logic bat-guano crazy? Admittedly, we are unlikely to be exposed to enough evidence to eliminate every impossible scenario. But we can at least examine enough evidence to see if the Official Narrative is one of those impossible scenarios. And that, in a republic, is arguably not only a possibility, but our duty. If the people who prefer living in denial want to call doing that duty 'being crazy', let them. The same people will likely say sending 3500 more troops into the mountains of Afghanistan is not crazy, despite the evidence of the failures more than half a dozen powerful empires over the course of the last millennium. But at the end of the day, we are voters in a Republic. Everyone defines duty a different way, and some deny they have any duty at all. But some believe we have a duty to know what the hell is going on. And if we have to put everything on the table and sort through it all to find out, that's sad, but some of us are going to man up and do it. Meanwhile, the Daily Mail says anyone who doesn't believe that nineteen Saudis with boxcutters caused three New York buildings to fall into their own footprints (one of which was not directly hit, and was full of federal trial evidence), Cheney called off the Air Force in good faith, the BBC knew with enough certainty that one would fall twenty minutes before it did to announce that it had fallen because they're really, really smart architects, someone who couldn't fly a Cessna could hit the first floor of the Pentagon with a 757, they were all controlled from Iraq and bin Laden was in Afghanistan, and we're getting the whole story on the whole thing is insane, and everyone who doesn't believe with childlike faith is capable of showering crowds with hot lead. Is that credible? Does it add to the conversation to present it?

    That's a rather lengthy bit of shilling for federalized police. I don't see any compelling argument in that demonstrating that we get better from the federal police when they do claim jurisdiction in a situation. Seems to me the answer is don't live in Chicago or New Jersey. And it's written by someone... ...who is either deliberately trying to cloud the issue, or simply can't speak English.

    That's the real $64 question. And there's been plenty of time to provide some answers. I can think of two reasons why that answer isn't forthcoming: There's an ongoing investigation aimed at finding other conspirators, and providing the public with answers would tip them off, or... The answer doesn't fit the Official Narrative. Well, at least we know what he was doing during those pregnant pauses in the shooting. He was sweeping up the spent shells and neatly stacking his empty magazines...

    And pretend to like what? It's too soon to go back to pretending to like raspberry wheat beer or Jägermeister. It has been years since we pretended to like Everclear Jell-O shots or sloe gin. Time for one of those to make a comeback? I don't know who told the Examiner being fashionable was easy. If you have to sacrifice your taste buds in order to convince shallow people you have taste, so be it.

    As with Lee Harvey Oswald, the fact that he's the patsy is no proof one way or the other about whether he played a role. Two windows broken out does tend to suggest two shooters. And one criminal popping a cap into his accomplice in the middle of a job, in the hope that will at least slow the cops down, is not unheard of. It doesn't pay to declare the patsy's innocence unless you're sure of it. Conspirators love that, as they can leak some proof you're wrong and the unwashed masses end up believing them, not you.

    But the country has changed, and the government has changed. The flag has changed too. I'd be ready to display the 48-star flag as a demonstration that I have no allegiance to the direction they are taking if I didn't think it would be misinterpreted (no doubt deliberately) as an insult to Alaska and Hawaii. The original with the circle of 13 stars might get the point across. In fact, this is the very reason I fly the Bennington Flag (my avatar).

    For the last two posters, and the rest of those who glanced at Mr. White's post above and said, 'TL/DR. Is this satire? This thing gets more cartoonish all the time. Admittedly, the original story was too ridiculous to stand. But these additional details trickling out keep shoving up the ridiculous factor. Are they trying to distract from the impossibility of ten seconds and more of continuous fire from 100-round magazines and the startling lack of hundreds and hundreds of spent casings on the floor of the hotel room with this salacious silliness?
