Re: “Police report triple shooting in 3200 block of Zion Street

Doig, it really depends on where you are. Recall the events after Katrina? There were others areas hit as bad or worse than New Orleans. Some towns were effectively wiped out. Some of these areas thrived, survived and did well without any other control than neighbors helping neighbors. In others....well, murder, looting, robbing... really depends on the culture.

Doig, I am happy you had that calm, mild experience with your dad. I watched, as a kid, our neighborhood go from the kind where the bat would be deep in the closet, to a neighborhood where you didn't even answer the door without something deadly in hand.

Some areas, when the SHTF will crumble into a giant sucking mess like Los Angeles during the riots or New Orleans after Katrina. Others will do well, like Joplin after the tornado or Baton Rouge after Katrina.

Things weren't much different during the Depression. My folks both saw a lot of this country, as did my Godfather, who saw a lot in Germany, Canada then the US. We are fortunate to be here, in the sticks, in the midwest, away from big cities, where there are weird lines of civilization drawn up. Mom found some things better in the city, other better in the rural areas.

Re: “Government issues warning to stop driving some Acuras and Hondas

Perspective, ladies, gentleman, and Krazy Krazo, it's all about perspective. Of all the many things in life that can and will kill you, worrying a crease into your brow over potential damage after a potential accident out of millions of cars putting billions of miles on the road, just seems a bit...much.

Knee jerk psychosis would be running out and selling your car because of some dim dark possibility. Talk about living a life in fear, and some of you talk about people with guns being fearful. You take a one in two billion chance odd, and treat it like an immediate threat and danger.

THAT is psychotic.

Re: “Police report triple shooting in 3200 block of Zion Street

Moutaingirl, that is entirely different situation, and you know it. Comparing a failed state like Venzueala with a moderately ordered country like the US is weak. As I am sure your hubby could tell, the military is little help over there, and the Govt is trying to ship all their money out of country while the people starve in the streets.

Then again, what is happening in Venezuela shows how thin that veneer of civilization is when push comes to shove. What happens when you have brutal dictators like Hugo Chavez tearing down everything and everyone.

Re: “Government issues warning to stop driving some Acuras and Hondas

Who is the Govt to measure risk? Considering that one driving a Honda or Toyota, is far more likely to be killed by someone texting while driving than they are by the airbag in their vehicle, just seems like fear mongering. In one day, more teens (not including adults, here) die texting while driving in two days than all those killed by those airbags for the life of this airbag debacle.

Much like the Pinto case, though, it may come to pass that legislative finding could reveal that the airbag manufacturer figured few people enough people would die as opposed to doing a redesign and recall. Those Takata airbags are in more than just Honda.

Re: “KKK thinks it may rise again

Still means this little brown dude ain't giving up his AR as long as these Klansmen are running around. Despite what some may claim, classical Dems have always embraced the KKK. If Hillary is somehow elected, how far will the Klan go under her watch? We know from history that President Wilson saw the rise of the Klan, and its expansion because of the Feds looking the other way while lynchings became rampant.

Trump would let them rise because he likes the division of people into smaller groups he believes he can control. Hillary would let them rise because she cares only about making brownie points with the blacks, even as she harbors an antipathy towards minorities. Money is her God, much the same as Trumps, but she has shown far more actual racism than Trump.

Neither will do anything about a Klan resurgence, which is another reason why folks that want to fight against hate groups need to arm up.

Re: “Search begins for lethal drugs to resume executions

You mean, "Thou Shalt Not Murder", CBB? Funny how so many of you agnostics and atheists pretend to know what is Biblical, yet you cannot even understand simple English (or Hebrew)

Executing criminals was not a Biblical prohibition, neither was killing someone in defense of life. But then there are those still troubled with the subtle difference between kill and murder.

Again with the selective morality....you guys.

In the right hands, according to a recent CDC study, they do make things safer, Cato. Time to worry about the criminals, and not their tools.
