Fiction and stupid.
These situtations always raise the question in my mind, what do they do if you don't comply? If the police come around ahead of a hurricane and tell me there is a "Mandatory Evacuation", what happens if I say "nope, just fine here." Where does any law or the Consti...

There is a BIG difference between an officer drawing a gun and an officer pointing it at a person. It is critical to this type of situation to know what happened exactly. Of course, parties tend to disagree on those type of details. If approaching a felony suspect it is entirely appropriate to ha...
| Political Talk|| re: Guess the net worth of this scenario - jbgleason on 1/27/15 at 10:27 am|
The problem with your question is that it is "average" which includes the majority of Americans who never have worked and paid taxes. I would guess they are all close to or reporting Zero. Which reduces the working, saving American greatly. I would guess $50k in a car and flat-screen TV's.

Let's be honest about one thing. I would have MUCH LESS of a problem with this if you were allowed to take the class and form your own opinion / argue your stance regardless of postions and receive a fair grade. But, as we all know, this isn't about learning or debating, it is about parroting the ...

I told them to take it off while I was signing the papers on my last purchase. They initially didn't want to do it but jumped to when I told them I didn't need to bother signing if that was an issue for them.
That was also when I threw in the "run it through the car wash and fill up the tank whi...

That's a pretty liberal use of "near LSU" by the media to add some drama. While it may be physically near as the crow flies, and yes they are trying to clean that area up, it is still the hood. Call it what it was. "Yet another Baton Rouge area culture shoo...

He confessed to me one night that he took the new job because he had an ex girlfriend that was stalking him. He had previously dated her ...

Not "losing sleep", it just occurred to me as I couldn't put my laptop in the overhead because the two troll women in my row have the entire overhead stuffed with their two pillows.

What is up with people who fly with the big pillows from home and carry them on? I can understand the sentiment that a hotel pillow might be a nasty concept but what about your personal pillow after you shove it in the overhead compartment and drag it through the airport and taxi? Just seems a weir...

You need to remember history here. In the 80's NOPD was so insular and corrupt (back then the hiring flyer said "some criminal convictions MAY be disqualifying") that the department ended up with FBI agents having office space in HQ just to investigate officers. They raised standards to clean thing...
