I’m sure as her boyfriend he knew whether or not she could handle it.

#18 - Maybe not gas or propane trucks, but lumber trucks definitely. Every time I think of that one Final Destination movie with the pile-up, which I didn’t even see, for heaven’s sake, but the image of the log falling off the truck and flying backwards through the car’s windshield was in the trailer and it’s ingrained in my memory.
Arguing that Sandy Hook was a government conspiracy to “take away our guns” is basically arguing that none of the other mass shootings — not to mention all the other everyday shootings we have — are worth instituting responsible gun control in response to.
When are people like this asshat going to realize that their assertion that their walking around with assault rifles should be okay because they’re harmless means nothing when they’re walking into a roomful of strangers? I don’t know who the hell you are. I don’t know if you’re a responsible gun owner or a vicious criminal or someone with dangerous mental health issues. I’ve never met you. How the hell do I or anybody else know if you have anger issues, or if you hate people of other races, or if you want to kill a bunch of people to prove a point? I don’t even know that for sure if you walk into a Burger King where I’m eating lunch, buy a value meal, and leave, openly strapped the whole time. Maybe you just don’t want to kill anyone, but I don’t know that, and neither does anyone else. And if you can think so little of a gun, of ANY gun, to the point where you would bring it unloaded into a public place just to prove a point, then you don’t deserve to have the damn thing. How the hell do you expect anyone else to respect you when you carry a gun when you don’t even respect the weapon itself and what it represents to others? That’s why you didn’t “feel any bad vibes,” you insufferable jackass. Bullies don’t.
I’m having a difficult time recalling the last time a Mexico cartel member committed a mass shooting on American soil.
And to scare the shit out of nearly everybody you come anywhere near. Other than THAT …
Not really, considering either option is discrimination.
The thing that gets me about the “Leo’s sad he hasn’t won an Oscar yet” meme is that he’s only been nominated three times. (He’s already won a Golden Globe for “The Aviator”.) Kate Winslet was nominated FIVE TIMES before she finally won her Oscar.
And one of their most idiotic. Birds don’t menstruate.
She’s holding her shoes. They’re very high heels, so she’s obviously going to a party or something. In which case, I don’t blame her for not wearing them while she still can. Hell, so do I for as long as possible before putting on heels and I’m not even pregnant.
So someone with a cleft palate or severe burn scars should just learn to love themselves the way they are? Does it not count to you because it’s a mental issue and you don’t believe those with mental health issues need whatever assistance they require to become a happy, healthy individual? Are you the sort of person who tells people with severe clinical depression (like myself) that all they need to do is “cheer up”, when those same people only barely keep from killing themselves thanks to medication and therapy? Because you are not encouraging her to accept and love herself the way she is. You are encouraging her to ignore the fact that she was born in the wrong body — in essence, that she has a treatable birth defect that can seriously affect her mental state to the point of suicide- all because it makes YOU uncomfortable. In less gentle words, Shanna — go screw yourself quietly with a sandpaper glove.
Yeah, and what they include as “Musical” is pretty ridiculous. Like, “Les Mis” counts (understandable) but so did “Walk The Line” (but that’s not a musical in the technical sense), yet “La Bamba” has just as much singing as “Walk The Line” given that they’re both true-life stories about singers and it gets labeled as a drama instead. I almost wish they’d pull what the Oscars did, combine the two categories, nominate ten films and be done with it. Let the acting categories get divvied up by genre if they’re so inclined. (I actually prefer this just because so many of the comedic actors and actresses get shafted come Oscar time even though their performances warrant a nomination. See: Jack Black in “Bernie”, which is still one of the best performances I’ve seen all year. And out of Jack Black! And I *hate* Jack Black.)
I wonder if he realizes that the reason his gay daughter’s life was so awful is because her father is a miserable bag of elephant vomit.
So basically he’s threatening violence, revolution, and/or civil war so he can keep his weapons just in case there’s violence, revolution, and/or a civil war. That makes about as much sense as thinking you have a right to a large gun collection because some day you *might* be able to use your one or two assault weapons to take down the world’s most overfunded, incredibly well-stocked military complex.
Good luck defending yourself against the most overfunded military in the world with your handgun, dude.
Yay for Quvenzhane Wallis! That makes her the youngest Best Actress nominee in history.
Weed ruins music? For real? Boy, I hope that’s one of the fakers, because if that’s someone who really meant it, they’ve clearly not heard the majority of music that’s been written since, like, 1960.
I have no problem with them reopening the theater in theory, I just think that they’ll learn quickly what the effect will be on the audience who’s willing to go in there. That said, that invitation was *incredibly* tacky.
There’s nothing wrong with them reopening the theater, I agree with you on that, but inviting the relatives of the victims was tacky as all hell.
Oh, they’ll probably say she’s faking this, too. And if - God forbid - it were serious enough to cause a stroke and kill her, they’d probably say she’d faked her death to avoid testifying at the Benghazi hearings as well.
Oh, for heaven’s sake, his line of sight is too high to be looking at her ass.
What, deporting him because he’s usually a repugnant douchebag isn’t good enough?
I’m always amused when celebrity couples who are gay and use a surrogate say in interviews that they both donated sperm, as though no one is supposed to know who’s the genetic father of the child. In related news, Zachary Furnish-John could not look more like a tiny Elton if he put on itty-bitty glasses.
Adopted by whom? Have you put that kid’s picture next to one of Jay-Z? ‘Cause, seriously, that’s who Blue Ivy looks like. (And way to imply that an adopted kid is less the child of its parents than a child born to them.)
Anyone who argues that it’s more important that more people at a shooting should have had guns rather than it is that the gunman had a gun in the first place is basically arguing that the first person to die is an acceptable loss, since the very first sign that a shooter is going to start killing people in these situations is, you know, *when he starts killing people.* Weirdly, they usually aren’t nice enough to walk into whatever location they’ve chosen to shoot up and yell, “Hey, everybody! Fair warning — I have a gun and anyone who wants to stop me might want to do it sooner rather than later!” So unless we’re going to start hiring security staff who are telepathic and can read the shooter’s mind before he even raises a gun, we’re still going to have mass murders with this incredibly insipid plan. (This is, of course, ignoring the fact that mass murderers have proven time and time again — at military bases, at schools with armed security, in states with a high rate of gun ownership — that they don’t care how many people at their chosen location may be carrying a weapon. They’ll adapt accordingly.)
“I do not favor the redefinition of marriage.” The fact that you’re perfectly okay with sitting down to an interview conducted by a woman who wasn’t sold to her husband by her parents says you’re at least *somewhat* accepting of it.
So the fact that I say, “Ugh, Otis, no one wants to look at your ass” twenty times a day is a good thing?
Do me a favor. Go get in your car. Go on. Now that you’re sitting in your car, check your wallet. You can’t go anywhere without a valid driver’s license. Oh, and check your glove compartment — can’t go anywhere without car insurance or your registration, too. Look in the corner of your windshield. There’s a label from your inspection. Make sure that — and all of the other documents I’ve mentioned that you need before you can drive — are up to date; otherwise, you could get a ticket. Now start your car. Did you put on your seatbelt? You’ll get a ticket if you don’t. Are your windshield wipers working? Better turn them on if it’s raining, or else you won’t be able to see and you’ll create a safety hazard. Enough air in your tires? Better fix that, or else you may get in an accident because you’re creating a safety hazard. Wait, you’re not going to a bar, are you? If you’re caught swerving, even if you’re not drunk, you’ll get pulled over. Watch out for that stop sign! You’ll get pulled over. Are you speeding? Boy, are you going to get pulled over. Etc., etc. We require a substantial amount of paperwork, licensing, safety procedures, upkeep, and education for you to be able to drive a car, so much so that we end up taking it for granted. However, all of it has resulted in a decrease in deaths and injuries since the advent of automobiles. We learn from the harm our vehicles cause and respond accordingly with new safety regulations. Meanwhile, we don’t require the same sort of requirements out of a gun owner and that thing’s sole purpose is to injure and kill.
As a former resident of the Metro area, I would be thrilled if this passed, and also pissed that Lieberman had anything to do with it.
I’m always amazed at people who believe that there are organizations out that which are smart enough to devise and execute complex secret plans, but too stupid not to hide a bunch of clues that can easily be spotted by some high school dropout on Stormfront.
They would have released their first thoughts, but “Aw, crap” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
I’m both impressed that they managed to do all this to protect Engel and yet irritated that the media can’t seem to do it for any other news story where discretion for safety’s sake might be a good thing.
No solution to mental health problems? Are you on crack? Mental health is the same as physical health, but there’s a broader stigma attached to mental health because of those like yourself who are willing to simply give up on those with mental health issues rather than attempt to help them. Mental health issues aren’t a result of “spirits” or “bad blood” or whatever mysterious influence we may have thought they might result from a long time ago, but have been proven time and again to result from treatable chemical imbalances. People love to knock drugs to treat mental health as a crutch, but as Craig Ferguson pointed out in regards to Tom Cruise’s rant, we wouldn’t knock away an actual crutch from a limping man, so why are we so eager to do it from someone who needs antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications to keep from killing themselves, like me? Nearly half of Americans suffer from some degree of mental health issue, but we’re not in a constant one-on-one assault from “crazy people.” Some of us manage to be just fine with medication and counseling of some sort, whether it be one-on-one with a psychiatrist, group counseling, or religious counseling (whichever works best for our individual situations). Writing off a large portion of the population because of extreme cases like Adam Lanza — who, it should be noted, is not alive to provide us with confirmation he even did have mental health issues — is a callous mistake on anyone’s part.
Honey, I’m an atheist with mental health issues and I do just fine with a doctor, a prescription, and counseling from a psychiatrist when necessary.
So this means we can’t talk about gun control again, right? At least until the next shooting happens, at which point we also can’t talk about gun control?
If we’re going to start eliminating possible presidential candidates because of their weight being a possible negative factor towards their health, then why do we let so many old people run for president? Seriously, she’s talking to a guy whose party ran a guy in 2008 who was within seven freaking years of the average American life expectancy. I could see if he were suffering from a debilitating life-threatening disease, but being fat is NOT a guarantee that someone is falling apart at the seams health-wise. Hell, Woodrow Wilson had a stroke in 1919 that left him incapable of governing the country — his wife took unofficial charge for the next two years until they left the White House — and if you’ve seen photos of him you know that was not a fat man. The point is, health is not now nor has it ever been under the sole ownership of the thin.
Okay, who put all these onions in my office? *sobbing*
It’s more of a dessert, really, so I’m kind of side-eyeing it on this list. In America, you see it a lot at fairs and things like that being served in waffle cones for some reason.
Seriously. That picture is ableism in a nutshell.
You know, if I went and got a job there, I could work in their kitchen for four hours and achieve the same smell, AND they’d pay me for it instead of me having to pay for it.
