Re: “Exile in Guyville at Twin Peaks

No wonder this rag is begging for money. As far as this type establishment goes I thought it was pretty good fair, I suggest the fish tacos I thought they were outstanding! And as far as scantily clad waitresses and Ice cold beer goes, well this review was in much more bad taste than that Restaraunt. Three cheers for Twin Peaks!

Re: “Martha Shoffner's day in court

You know what's missing in all these news stories about her? The huge "D" that should be placed by her name. I notice that you always remember to remind everyone what party affiliation a Republican belongs to when reporting bad news about someone. Hacks.

Re: “Lancaster: Disgrace

The problem with actually coming up with a solution is, the very thing you are complaining about, you sabotage with the sneering attitude of your article.

1) The minute you start making fun of your opponent you have lost their respect and shut off dialogue. Right now I pretty much view you as a whiny, lazy, liberal, grievance monger and now I don't trust you because I think your real goal wont be just to stop madmen from harming people but to stop all people from being armed.

2) As terrible as it may sound these things are extremely rare. Mass shootings account for less than one percent of firearms related deaths yet there are more than 250 million firearms in the US. That's almost 1 gun for every man women and child in America yet Firearms deaths are relatively low comparatively. In 2004, there were 29,569 total firearm fatalities, including 16,750 suicides, 649 accidents and 235 with unknown intent. That’s 81 firearm-related deaths every single day in the United States. Sounds bad right?! Maybe not as bad as 93 deaths per day right? That's how many die each day on our roadways. In 2010 there were 32,885 deaths on US roads, that's more people than die by firearms and there are far less vehicles than firearms. So lets not lose perspective here.

3) My right to self defense is a civil right. I know you libs hate it when its put that way but you cant pick which civil rights you like and which you don't. The ability to drive a vehicle is not, but lets say it was, would you allow curtailing of your right to drive based on the criminal act of a third party? No I don't think you would.

4) This madman could have strapped a bomb to his chest and killed everybody instantly. The point is that I know you libs live in Disney land where if we just try hard enough everyone will put flowers in their gun barrels and there will be "peace" in the world. Well I got news for you, man is capable of great evil and untill you can tell me what you plan on doing about evil, you cant have the tool best capable of dealing with that kind of evil.

Re: “Republicans in training — free lunch touted, but ....

So "Let the investigation continue" means President "most transparent admin evah!" Obama and Eric "Guns, what guns" Holder need to release all the documents to the program he said he stopped but didn't know about.

And Max should be writing about this because he's famous for being a total hack and large type douchebag when the issue of guns comes up but not when President wonderful is responsible for a program that got innocent Mexican civilians killed and two American LEO's.

Don't you guys think it's ironic that people who are rabidly anti-gun like Max, Obama and Holder are all ignoring a program instituted by liberals who profess that we need more fun laws cause, "the children" (TM) yet the program they are defending got people murdered?!

Hey here's a far more interesting question - Why is there Still no coverage of the Fast and Furious scandal here?

Doesnt fit your narrative?
