I have occasionally joked about the unnecessary rudeness of the east coast compared to the usually polite west coast by saying that all the rudeness must have lost the gunfights years ago.  One other explanation for the eastern rudeness came from a resident victim who says they feel entitled and are obnoxious about it which upsets everyone.  They are a hundred years older in the making than western states so that could be our future, but most of them also have Royal bloodlines,and if you don’t believe the blood carries such things, you likely can believe such arrogance can be passed from generation to generation with no apparent reason to back it up.  White trash still looks down on POC and POC in prison still look down on white crackers..  Someone is always better, or thinks they are, than others, and someone is always worse, or thinks they are.  Created equal escapes many as does responsibility for their circumstances which their choices created.


I live in the most heavily armed county of my state which ranks in the top ten states for gun ownership, so heck yeah, people are polite and I feel safe because we’re good people and if you encounter one who’s not you know they’re not likely to be from around here.  We hope they’re just passing through.......lol


In today’s paper, Chicago went 22 hours without someone being shot according to police.....guess they are still working things out.  It’s not funny, and yet, I laugh.

What is POC?

Following a trend on Facebook that seems to be pc, politically correct, poc subs for people of color, no one has taken issue with it in my realm, at least not yet. It sounds better to me than non white, since I became sensitive to Tribal folks referring to me, and others of my species, as non Indian. Non is negative no matter what it precedes. Despite the fact that I may be more American Indian at 25% than some of them, there’s no denying appearances. Conflicted about gun control. The law won in the west, but I’m not certain it’s winning back east. Efforts at gun control seem well meaning, to place guns in the hands of good people, but they also seem likely to be the first step to banning guns for everyone which means thanks to the inevitable black market, having the criminals well armed and their victims helpless since the law can’t be everywhere and most people can’t afford or won’t hire bodyguards.

Ah.  Thanks.


I'm pretty solid on the, 'armed society = polite society'.  Given some wanker got into my truck a couple of days ago, I'm also big on instant justice right about now.  Petty thieves and vandals have been becoming a problem up here and folk are getting weary of it.  Courts give 'em a ticket and set them loose.

Back when hyjacking planes was a thing, my husband’s solution was to issue everyone a gun before boarding.  I always laughed, but I think he was serious, member of the NRA and 22 years of service as a U.S. Marine that he was. Gun control is a tired subject, not much new can surface.  Laws differ in Washington and Idaho to varying degrees, with many similarities. Stand your ground, which means you’re not required to retreat if threatened and are within your rights to shoot and kill. Castle doctrine, recently solidified what had been on the books in spirit for a century in Idaho:  that a person’s home is a “castle” and threatened, a person has the right to defend it and the area around it without repercussions should someone be shot.   The bill passed amid criticism that it allows for “justifiable homicide” and affords little nuance in protecting people who unknowingly wander onto private property. Property owners should not be required to post “ private property “ signage every hundred feet or so:  what kind of idiot doesn’t know he or she isn’t on their own property?  The signs are unsightly. What happened to ignorance of the law is no excuse?  Respect the fence!

I agree.  If someone goes through the trouble and expense of obtaining a CCW permit, then that permit should be valid in all states and territories and should be sufficient to allow that person to carry wherever s/he goes:  banks, schools, government buildings or airplanes.


The existance of the patriot act and the surveylence state is unacceptable and means the terrorists won.

Surveillance catches many bad guys, with undeniable evidence.....or maybe I’ve watched too many Korean dramas. The Patriot Act as with many others is implemented in unintended ways, but it is the culmination of recommendations from well meaning people who needed help getting their jobs done to meet the public’s expectations and get promoted for all the usual motivations. Besides, the public needed the government to do something even if it was wrong. We’re you not comforted?

I was creeped out by the very name of the law, and also the talk of protecting the "homeland." Still am, really.

Nope.


Given the feds consistant mislabling of bills so that the title means the opposite of what the bill actually does... the patriot act would more aptly be titled, the treason act.
