   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Anyone else notice how nothing is being said about how the shooter in Chattanooga was able to drive across town and attack another military location without the second military location being warned and put on lockdown? I've heard it took about 30 minutes from the first shot to the last. Even if it only took 5 minutes, why wasn't the second site warned? Who is responsible? Why were our troops sitting ducks, when they could have and should have been warned? I haven't heard anyone mention this. Those Marines should not have been out there. First they don't let them arm themselves, and then they don't even tell them a threat may be coming their way.

   Safetydude  We learned nothing from the Fort Hood massacre.
There were some senior NCO's in that building that could, maybe, have stopped the perp.
Those recruiters could have been armed, they are trained to handle firearms, after all and might have been able to return fire(now, that's comment from somebody who wasn't there )but understands what a 'gun free zone' is.

Why is the shooter still referred to as "the suspect"?

   Safetydude  I was serving in the AF when George(Read My Lips:No New Taxes )H.W. Bush was President and signed DoD Directive 5210.56 declaring that all military installation were 'gun free zones'.
Most of us who lived off base had guns in our vehicles and brought them with us when we came on duty. It was a 'wink, wink, nod, nod' deal by the guy on the gate. Once I got caught in a random stop and had to follow the cop down to the armory where they kept my, still loaded, pistol 'till I picked it up on my way home. '92 is a long time ago, but I think if you lived on base you could own guns but now you had to belong to the base gun club and you had to store your gun(s ) there. You couldn't keep firearms in your residence.
(I'm open for corrections on that ).

When we were stationed overseas or going on an OCONUS deployment every cargo bin, tool box or vehicle was stuffed with personal weapons.

That was then.

   Fireball27  Thanks for your service to our country Safetydude. I didn't serve, but worked as a civilian at a Naval Air Station. 1966-1969.

So I guess Maj Nadal Hasan used an imaginary FN.
Too bad the security forces are such bad shots. He should have been filled with .40's.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Don't you just love the way the liberals are reacting to the Planned Parenthood news? Just when you thought they couldn't stoop any lower. If someone told them they were squishing puppy heads and legs, and taking the internal organs out for sale they would scream bloody murder. But since these are little human "blobs of tissue" it doesn't bother them. Actually I think it does bother them, but since they are liberals, they can't stray from the liberal way of thinking. This just turns my stomach. Make sure to pass this story along because you know the media is going to try to ignore it.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Howie Kurtz's MediaBuzz is on and the two reporters with him can't call Donald Trump enough names. They don't want to talk about the issues, just how Trump is a "clown, blowhard, etc." Howie shows a clip of Trump giving an interviewer a push back on what she was saying, again mentioning "immigrants" not committing a lot of crimes, not ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. He is really getting under their skin. They are really making a fool of themselves. Not that they care.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Yesterday I posted on the L.COM main page that we should start hammering the media every time we see them say "immigrant" instead of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT! Now is the time, when we have more and more people starting to pay attention, to show how the media is a bunch of liars. They lie about what Trump said, trying to make him look bad, and today they let themselves be led around by a lasso at a parade with Hillary. They are making a mockery of the first amendment. They are puppets of the left. Make sure to let everyone know what the media is doing. A new poll says over 70 percent of people believe the media is biased. And I don't even know anyone who answers polls!

   RedWhiteBlue  When people use the word immigrant instead of making it clear that the topic is of the LEGAL immigrants it starts to fog over and the real meaning gets lost. YES, I agree, use the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT monicker and stop making their crime sound like it never happened. We don't change the words to downsize other crimes and criminals so why do this to the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS? They have the largest numbers on stats!!!!

   Fireball27  This is really beginning to tick me off! I watched Howie Kurtz on his show about the media and he kept saying immigration, over and over again. Not ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!!! I sent him an e-mail asking him why he needs to continue to lie about this to his audience. Lets give him the "Brian Williams Excellence in Lying Award". If that's not a real award, we should start one now. I should check out Newsbusters, they might have one they give out. Hammer Time!!!

   Balogreene  I don't know about you guys, but my ancestors were either here for the Revolution, or are legal (through Ellis Island ) immigrants. What is this, "we all come from immigrants"? Yes we do, most of us through LEGAL immigration. Like I said, my ancestors fought in EVERY war from the Revolution through Vietnam (not sure about the current stuff ). Or, they came in time to fight in WWI through to Vietnam. They all learned English, they all became citizens. Why do we have to compete with illegals who come "out of love"?

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I really wonder what it is that Obama has on Judge Roberts. Today the Judge is saying the court can't do what they did on the gay marriage issue. Exactly the opposite of what he said yesterday about Obamacare. It's sure strange and appears that the Judge is being blackmailed.

   NotaBene  Roberts was blackmailed. Robert and his wife illegally adopted two children. It is all over the internet. You can google Roberts illegally adopted children. He sold us to protect his family.

   StormCnter  I don't think Roberts is being blackmailed. I think he is simply not the "balls and strikes" jurist he told us he would be on the court. The New York Times tried hard to get the adoption records unsealed while Roberts was being considered for the Court, but was unsuccessful. They were never able to show any illegality about the adoption. The theory arises from the fact that Ireland does not allow private adoptions or any adoption to non-residents. The Robertses have a home in Ireland and roots there, but they weren't really residents. The children went from Ireland to South American where the adoption process was begun and completed. Since the birth mothers were apparently fine with the adoption process, there was little for the Times to uncover or for anyone to blackmail Justice Roberts with. The blackmail idea is just an idea. I'm as disappointed in him as anyone, but I believe Occam's Razor applies here. The simplest and most obvious reason for his votes is that he was never the justice we anticipated.

   Linder  I agree with SC. Justice Roberts is a huge disappointment. Dems can always count on their appointees to vote the party line....Reps, not so much.

   Mr. Know-It-All  And some folks insist we must vote for a republican POTUS because of the importance of SCOTUS appointments. Yet look how few of those actually turn out for the good.

We need a POTUS with the stones to find more Scalias and Thomases to nominate, but none of the wishy washy establishment types would be willing to brave the storm of leftist criticism if he did so.

   StormCnter  Remember that Roberts was not GWB's first choice, but he had been warned by the Dem Senate that getting anyone approved would be tough. If you remember, the Dems and the NY Times tried diligently to sufficiently trash both Roberts and Alito that they could not be confirmed. Alito is a wonderful jurist, Roberts has been a disappointment. GeorgeW wanted Alberto Gonzales on the Court and he would have been a fine conservative Judge, but the Dems were worried about his stance on abortion and made it clear he had no chance. With a GOP controlled Senate after a 2016 GOP presidential win, it should be easier to get the best SCOTUS nominees approved.

   Safetydude  Well, another brilliant comment was bounced by the word police. The word I used was qu**r. Please tell me, gentle readers, why a word as common as qu**r is no longer allowed in a polite and civilized conversation.

We are forced by the PC crowd to refer to abnormal behavior as 'gay'.

To me 'gay' is the New Years Eve ball in the Grand Vienna Hotel, with the women in beautiful gowns and the men in Tuxedos all gaily dancing to Strauss waltzes.
Gay is also how a family feels on Christmas morning opening present around the tree.
Gay used to be a happy word, now it's a negative.

This is what drives it.

   FlatCityGirl  It seems to me that there are any number of "mainstream" words that don't get through the filter here, and yet, there are new posters at the site who are getting away with really vile things. Variations of the "Eff word" and words referring to a certain part of the female anatomy being the two I've noticed most recently.

No one seems to care, and yet, I've seen the staff come on and jump on people for things that aren't nearly as bad.

It seems that some of the new ones haven't gotten the message that Lucianne is a Salon, not a Saloon, and the staff is asleep at the switch.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Let's hope the people Ms. Clinton sent e-mails to, are scared enough to give those e-mails up. Maybe we should start asking "who is going to go to jail to save Hillary"? I don't think there are too many who are willing to go to the mat for her. Who is going to cover up for Hillary? Let's make that the question heard all over the internet! Put the heat on!!!

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Happy Thanksgiving to all my L.Dotter friends and their families. We are all so lucky to live in the U.S. People like you are the reason this country is so great. I often wonder about other countries, and why they are so backward. My friend was from East Germany, and the city he grew up in was over 1000 years old! We sent him off to meet his maker wearing the Proud to be an American T-Shirt he loved. I'm proud to have known him. If any of you have seen the movie "Night Crossing" you will understand what life was like for him and his family in East Germany. That movie is a true story about a family trying to escape to the west in a homemade hot air balloon. My friend got his family out in 1976. It was almost impossible, but he made it happen.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Please people, don't let the media get away with the amnesty story they are putting out. Remind people the ILLEGALS are not just here ILLEGALLY, they are committing IDENTITY THEFT. Even the President says they are working here, but doesn't mention they have to be committing IDENTITY THEFT if they are. IDENTITY THEFT and FRAUD! Ask the media if the ILLEGALS are using THEIR Social Security Number. Most people won't know their S.S.N. is being used, at least until they file for Social Security. People on Social Security have had their accounts screwed up by ILLEGALS because income has been reported on their account, when the account holder has not worked. Just try to get that straightened out!

Yes, it is identity theft and fraud just like it is fraud for people to vote who are not citizens. Voter fraud is a felony. Folks who have been convicted of felonies should be denied citizenship.

Sorry about the delete but I had to fix my bad spelling.
