"Oh....so NOW borders matter all of a sudden?" One of my snarky preloaded comebacks to the state lines argument, usually given in response to some smug leftist when I realize they are spitting out bumper stickers and can't be reasoned with. Typically followed on my part by an accusation of relativism as opposed to philosophical universalism (like the now radical concept the laws should apply to everyone equally).

The feds routinely did this with drug cases in the late 80's. I would like an answer to that very same question.

There was no justice today for Anthony or for Mr. Rittenhouse's other victims.

Nope justice for them happened on August 25, 2020, today's verdict was merely a confirmation of that.

Agreed, but should he walk away from this a free man and he plays his cards right he could become a very rich man as well and that is precisely what I would like to see happen for him. But yeah, I've been in a jury room before.

.......Because gun play in the streets of an urban center is cultural appropriation?

And when the charge contradicts the statute? "HE WAS OPERATING A VEHICLE WITHOUT A LICENSE!" ...."Nope, I have a driver's license." ...."HE WAS DRIVING A VEHICLE WITHOUT INSURANCE!"...."I have car insurance."..."HE WAS DRIVING AN UNREGISTERED VEHICLE!" ..."I was driving a bicycle."..."REEEEEEEEE!" Is this what our criminal justice system has become? Well I guess technically Kyle's AR had a shorter barrel than my old Colt slab-sided AR, hence, "short barreled rifle". It will not serve you, or our country to make excuses for these lying petulant children.

An overwhelming percentage of those who know firearms know this SBR charge was absolute bullshit.......Then again an overwhelming percentage of those who know firearms know this trial is absolute bullshit.

Step 3 : Get to know local bail bondsmen, this will help when getting arrested for violating all those pesky laws you're no longer subject to.

Step 2 : Call all local auto glass installers, ask about bulk discounts, specifically for driver's side windows, let vehicle registration and driver's license lapse.

Agreed, don't take my word for it ask Carlos Hathcock. Didn't Rem recall the 700 awhile back because flicking off the safety would cause it to fire? A once great rifle, damn shame.

What about her testimony would lead you to believe you could discern her political affiliation or that she was acting? Do you have specific knowledge about this individual or is this just a gut feeling on your part? I'm asking sincerely.

What's everyone busting on her for? She's just over enunciating, I doubt she speaks like this in conversation. She's using an expository precision and I'm sure the steno appreciates it, I find her clarity a welcome change from the lazy mouthed "Jeet yet?" "Naw jew?" (Did you eat yet? No, did you?). I've seen cops do the same thing when testifying, they have these default scripts to make sure they check all the boxes "When I ordered the defendant to exit his vehicle he was unsteady on his feet, his eyes were glossy and blood shot, his speech was slurred and I detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. My training and experience led me to conclude that he may be intoxicated." Yes it sounds overly precise, formal and archaic (like laws are worded) but it leaves few ins for the defense, otherwise "Officer, you testified that my client was driving a truck however the vehicle you cite in your report is actually an SUV." or "Officer, you testified that you asked the defendant to exit his vehicle, was that merely a request and not a lawful order?" This speech preserves the appearance of competence and prevents the defense from interjecting like that and accumulating doubt in testimony by making a witness look like a stammering buffoon on cross.

TLDR: Professional witnesses are trained to speak so formally while giving testimony for a reason.

Emphasis on "average". In my 50's, dropped 45 over the last year, back to my fighting weight in High School. Went from a BMI of overweight, 3 points away from obese, to well into the normal weight range. Feel pretty unstoppable, I have a 6-pack again. Lefite ex-wife moved out and "Dear John-ed" me by phone at work in 17' over irreconcilable political stance, wallowed a bit then found my stride. Coming back strong for the win in the second half
Clueless family wants me to get vaxed and fly back home for thanksgiving, noped out, those poor buggers are going to be lost without my culinary skills this time around. Two lessons have been learned, knowing the truth can be a frustrating, dismal and lonely place to reside, that and, personal work always pays off. Self improvement, ultimately, is the only game in town.

Who is this old fool? Based on the few posts of his that I've seen I'd like to nominate him for the King Of Disapproving Fear Based Marxist Hyperbole. Anyone want to second?

Self important, foul mouthed slob. I had a 2 year bad run of "teachers" like this in grade school and I probably know this woman better than she will ever know herself. I could even characterize her walk as she went to "get someone on duty from the school" to tell grandma to mask up and also her subsequent disapproval that grandma was not dragged from the hall. You go girl! it only took you 30 some odd years to become the baddest chick in high school. Well that and an army of police and managers to do your self-righteous, unhinged bidding while you stood over their shoulder. Ultimately this is passive-aggressive venting of an unhappy, ineffectual person who more than likely is imposing their venom, dysfunction and misery on the next generation. Unfortunately people like this now have a Government supported cause, a platform and believe they have a duty to do so.
