Are you offering ?

LOL I'm always well armed at home, but outside the home it's too easy to earn that criminal record just by getting caught slipping... (yeah, that's still my feelings about it personally, having been carjacked pretty close to the area in question in the past 90 days). Still more afraid of the consequences of slipping up on a law than I am of thugs.

At least youtube will have the video of my car getting wrecked for all time. Wish they hadn't broken that guy's leg though.

I was thinking about you and your "incident" the other day. Did you end up with that other CTS?

Watch that right foot. They tend to have a mind of their own.

I look at gun rights like they are in the Miranda Decision..

1. You have the right to gun.

2. Any gun you wish to use, misuse may land you in court.

3. You have the right to your gun before during and after a crime against you has been committed.

4. If you cannot afford a gun, one will be provided for you free of charge if you want.

5. Do you wish to waive this right?

Several news sites reported the Duggan victory in the exact same manner as I posted.....imagine that.

I wonder why Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have not gone to Detroit and blame the new mayor for that shooting that had 3 dead and 6 wounded. Where is the outrage?

Dude, its not all about you - and I hardly see the "but they did it too!" as a defense.

Sure, that a massively black majority city elected a white mayor is an interesting angle, but it doesn't warrant the headlines IMO. If we want to continue to play the race game, fine, if not, then we should expect better.

Detroit's problems are deeper than bad mayors, and while Kwame certainly poured on the damage, I don't see how Duggan represents much change from mayors like Bing and Archer. The best hope will be if the bankruptcy can finally put a floor under the failed economics of the city - if it doesn't, then the distillation of pain will continue.

I once read that the population of Rome fell from a million down to 40,000 before it started to rise again...

How would you have reported the voters choice.?

What race game.?It's a powerful statement that the voters have made.I know most newswriters see this story as significant...as do I.No question the city has major problems..but,when a city that is populated by 80% minorities votes for the white candidate...there is good reason for it.

This isn't a plea of..'well they did it too' it's a valid news story from a city in deep..deep trouble,who has selected a leader based upon his accomplishments.

...and he just happens to be white.
