Unfortunately, the answers rarely, if ever, work. JSStryker Aug 27 2020 at 12:27 am “If socialism is the answer then someone asked a really stupid question…” Wood Aug 27 2020 at 7:59 am If socialism is the answer, the question must have been “what form of government shares misery equally” or something similar John Aug 27 2020 at 1:39 pm Didn’t Churchill say words to that effect? JTC Aug 27 2020 at 12:19 pm They have an app for everybody/everything. Works fine until our money and/or our patience runs out. They don’t have an app for that, but we do. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Aug 27 2020 at 12:07 am Syndrome, “And when everyone’s super, no one will be.” Ozymandius Aug 27 2020 at 1:14 am If you think the problem is bad, wait ’til you see their solution. Bill G Aug 27 2020 at 4:29 am The left’s solution to the problem of government is always “More Government.” As in “More cowbell.” Randy Aug 27 2020 at 5:18 am And less people as (their) resources are perceived as running out. Kafiroon Aug 27 2020 at 7:04 am “People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them” – Eric Hoffer DogByte6RER Aug 27 2020 at 9:04 am “Those who are merciful to the cruel will be cruel to the merciful.” – Talmudic dictum My Way Or ---> Aug 27 2020 at 7:37 am NOTE: Kyle Rittenhouse, an Antioch, IL, teenager (17YO) went to Kenosha, WI, to stand guard (with other people) over other people’s property while looting, destruction (arson) and general mayhem was generated by other people buried in the crowd of protesters who were there over a Kenosha cop shooting and injuring Jacob Blake. Noite: Blake is not dead, but is injured. Videos posted online clearly show that Rittenhouse was twice attacked by rioters, whom he shot. (No opinion here on why a 17 year old has an automatic weapon.) He did turn himself in. No opinion on this, but the likelihood of another riot and more destruction is high. And note that the destruction took place after dark, as usual. Wood Aug 27 2020 at 8:01 am If you should choose to form an opinion on the content of your post, please make sure that opinion is informed by the fact that his weapon was a semi-automatic rifle/carbine. My Way Or ---> Aug 27 2020 at 4:58 pm Checking on the age requirement for gun ownership, the legal age for that in Illinois is 21. Zimmerman is 17, a minor. In Illinois, an FOID is required to own or use a gun, which means that if you go to a shooting range and rent a gun for practice, you have to be 21. In addition, the people he shot all have criminal records, and by “criminal”, I mean “felony” criminal. There is something truly strange going on here. MasterDiver Aug 27 2020 at 8:02 am Better to be judged by 12 than carried by six. If it comes to trial, and is tried in local court, I’m sure the Kenosha residents making up the jury will bring in a unanimous “Not Guilty”. Zar Belk! DogByte6RER Aug 27 2020 at 9:10 am Leftists of every color and stripe have established legal defense funds for these hoards of Antifa/BLM rioters/looters/arsonists/killers. Where is the legal defense fund for this 17-year-old so called vigilante?!? epilitimus Aug 27 2020 at 2:55 pm It was canceled by GoFundMe https://www.rt.com/usa/499210-gofundme-deletes-kyle-rittenhouse-fundraiser/ Geo. Washington Aug 27 2020 at 9:13 pm Oh there’s legal help a comin’ can’t post a link but Lin Wood of Covington fame is putting on the Lone Ranger mask and riding to the rescue. ExNuke Aug 27 2020 at 9:13 am Video showed him trying to retreat and being chased down by the predators (normal predator/prey behavior). Predictable actions that Repressive Democrats insist will “keep you safe”. My opinion on why a 17 year old had an “automatic weapon” is that it’s a good thing he did or it might well have been him dead instead of the violent attackers. The 300 Aug 28 2020 at 8:20 am Attacked THREE times by rioters. Ben Shapiro showed the initial confrontation where the registered sex offender was chasing the kid down, threw something at him, then cornered him between a fence and a wall, at which point the kid turned and fired, hitting him in the head. That’s when his other two buddies, also felons chased him down the street where he shot one and killed the other. Pretty good for a 17 year old to be able to get three hits while fleeing and not hitting any bystanders like a typical liberal would.

DogByte6RER Aug 27 2020 at 9:11 am Welcome to the “New Apartheid” … stamped with the full approval of the DNC. Pamela Aug 27 2020 at 10:40 am The Butchers Bill for all Loss of Life and Damages needs to be given to the DNC and all Congress Critters. JTC Aug 27 2020 at 11:16 am Tough on on the kid. It’s a Zimmerman. An armed good guy doing shit he shouldn’t be doing and is viciously attacked for doing it and is left with no recourse but to use that weapon to save his life. It ain’t criminal as Z’s case proves but it de facto ended his life anyway and it is likely to totally fuck this boy’s too even when he is And in this case a minor! Why was he there from out of state, without his guardians, and with a rifle? There is no justification and calamity was damn near guaranteed. Prayers for him as he goes through this, but local militia defense is a local job properly done by local adults, who will do everything possible to avoid it but when they God forbid have to shoot, will not be doing so while running away but with full intent and purpose and results, and would then become a wake up call and not another rallying point for the thugs, their handlers, and their apologists. JTC Aug 27 2020 at 11:18 am “…even when he is found not guilty.” 1RapidRobert Aug 27 2020 at 11:39 am The attackers came from all over the US to supplement the side they support. (where DO they get the money for all this travel?) Why then cannot the defenders? Mr. Rittenhouse was outed/identified by Portland, Oregon ANTIFA very soon after this happened. Some of the Portland group are already making their way to Kenosha to “support” their friends. For more complete information check out, https://gunfreezone.net/ JTC Aug 27 2020 at 12:45 pm Miguel is wrong here as he sometimes is, just as Mas Ayoob was when I made similar points in comments on his Zimmerman series. A kid with a rifle who runs then shoots is a danger to everybody in the area not just the spooks. And local, serious, capable men standing shotgun as it were at their homes and businesses with a plan amongst themselves on when and who to shoot would be guaranteed to stop the threat at that time and place. And if retribution is planned, then it’s time for the National Guard and the Feds -which as I understand it DT has put into motion- and not a well-intended but completely out of place adolescent with a rifle and no plan on when and how to employ it. Not the situation we want to hang our 2A hat on. But it does give comfort that there are young ones with such commitment and bodes well for those of his gen who will be facing the next commie onslaughdt. Just needs to get some years and some experience on him before he goes slinging long guns in such explosive situations and maybe not even then…I mean I wouldn’t go to the next state and put myself in that situation with no real coordinated plan that will actually help the citizens there. But if their travelling band of paid thugs and scum get bused to Sebring FL I and just about every man I know will be standing guard and prepared to do what must be done. Kafiroon Aug 27 2020 at 11:06 pm Well alright. I would load up my old rocking chair and roll east on 64 to help see you through the roving Chinese fire drill. Unfortunately, if they are there, they will be here also. Still got an old beat up scatter gun that goes with the rocker. John Aug 27 2020 at 1:50 pm This should be interesting. Interstate travel with intent to riot is a federal offense. Doggo Aug 29 2020 at 10:44 pm His hometown is on the state line. Kenosha is less than 5 miles away. It’s not like he was “out of state”. It’s literally the next town over. interventor Aug 27 2020 at 1:05 pm DoJ is investigating the deaths from Covid 19 at NY nursing homes, In particular, orders given to send patients to the nursing homes. Guess Gov. Killer Cuomo is considering a nice villa in Italy. Halley Aug 27 2020 at 1:41 pm Now is the time to reignite faith in the common sense of everyday Americans. The Democrats have all but admitted out loud that they are the Handmaidens of Evil, with hammers and sickles in brazen neon lights. Their criminality cannot, will not, stand. John Aug 27 2020 at 1:56 pm There are some who (with far too much optimism) believe this is the swan song of the Democratic Party. I for one think that, sad to say, we will always be cursed with a political party dedicated solely to powermongering. JTC Aug 27 2020 at 2:35 pm …”we will always be cursed with a political party dedicated solely to powermongering”… You mean the democraps or republicants? And I would add nestfeathering and cashstacking. The 300 Aug 28 2020 at 8:25 am Republicans don’t want power. They want to be the permanent minority party that doesn’t have to produce results. All theywant to have to do is go back home every 2 or 6 years and tell the suckers “vote for me to stop the Democrat agenda.” Pamela Aug 27 2020 at 3:42 pm https://mooseintheyard.blogspot.com/2020/08/the-return.html JTC Aug 27 2020 at 4:48 pm The only thing they fear more than our guns is our God. They will turn the Awakening into a wokening to try to deny us access to both. They will pay for the latter at the point of the former. So it is written. Blasternaz Aug 27 2020 at 5:52 pm https://twitter.com/LLinWood Same lawyer that represented Nick Sandmann in the CNN case. He is setting up a donation site as well (or is affiliated with one) since GoFundMe took down the site started by Kyle’s father. Calvin Aug 27 2020 at 11:49 pm Imagine a movie script right out of Hollywood…a teenager is running for his life in the inner city. Everywhere he turns there is a possible attacker. He is having projectiles thrown at him, someone pulls a gun on him, someone with a skateboard is hitting him. He finds a weapon on the ground in the struggle and shoots all three attackers. He makes it to the credits and is proclaimed a hero by the movie audience. Does it matter how he came to have the weapon? Not really. It’s just a miracle that he found what he needed when he needed it. Calvin Aug 27 2020 at 11:53 pm Kenosha police today stopped and detained three vehicles from outside the area. They had inside gasoline, helmets, fireworks, and a sundry other violent inducing equipment. Are we surprised? Not really but this is the first proof of a nationwide (international?) conspiracy directed at the United States in general. Chezz Aug 28 2020 at 2:08 am @JTC End time prophecy: “The vile person shall no more be called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.” Isaiah 32:5-6. Sound familiar? In the end, they will fail. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
