arrest warrant over her lawn? must have been a slow day at police HQ. Oh, I almost forgot, they came to her home 'to protect and to serve'. right.

I've written this on the forum before, but it applies again:

"The government fearing the people is Liberty. The people fearing the government is tyranny."

It starts at the top. Proper leadership in this country would prevent this sort of thing from becoming more and more common.

They don't wear jackboots and they don't goosestep, but they're the same.

Do you plan to just sit on your front porch rocker, kvetch, and watch the world pass by, or do you plan to do something about it?

You call it a goad - I call it a fair question.

It's just that you are the forum right-wing mouthpiece for all that is wrong in the U.S., especially since Obama took office. I was just wondering if you were all fluff and bombast, or if you actually plan to do something, anything, other than carping and complaining. You know, like join a political action committee, run for elected office, even write a snarky letter to your congressman...

Something?

Anything?

He already is doing something about it - posting on OD. A place where everthing is talked about and then the talking gets talked about.

That video would be infuriating to anyone who watches. What an outrageous misuse of 5(?) police officers. The news reporter seemed to be stuck on the event itself and didnít comprehend the grotesque over-use of city piglets at the scene.

Anyone wanna bet there is a Winchellís within a couple of blocks?

I'm told the late 80s 350SDL and 350SD are the best ones ever. Just have to watch out for the number on the engine's head..Its like golf, lower is better!

You'd have to ask Air&Road, he's knows his oil changes! I'm sure he'll tell you 50,000 is over zealous. He changes his at like 120,000.
