We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Supposedly, the Dieffenbachia plant can be used in situations like this. It has been said that the "sap" from this plant, when ingested, causes one to loose their voice for a while with little or no adverse effects.
Wouldn't it be nice to just slip some in Schram's coffee, and timed so that he just had time to introduce Tom before he lost his voice. Then Tom could "carry the show" as long as necessary to get his point across.
It's been stated that men have used this method to silence their Mother's in Law.
Cellphone, flashlight, holstered handgun...all are legal to carry openly. If a cop would ignore 2 but not the third based only on the legal item being carried, then the cop is out of line demanding id, asking yes, not demanding.
On September 8, 2009, United States District Judge Bruce D. Black of the United States District Court for New Mexico entered summary judgment in a civil case for damages against Alamogordo, NM police officers. The Judge's straight shootin' message to police: Leave open carriers alone unless you have "reason to believe that a crime [is] afoot."
what a dirt bag. He would not even side with him, open carry advocate my ass. so a cop drives up when you are walking down a street and demands I.D. is the same thing, He was just being closed minded and trying to make a fool out of Tom. Good job Tom for stating our rights.
Thats what radio jockeys do ..speak over people., Tom is an idiot..I agree he gave up his right.. friggin sheep!
An e-mail I just fired off to num-nuts:
Can't you get it through your thick head, that it is not about the gun! It is about his 4th Amendment right against illegal search and seizure. Stopping him from citing case law and facts proves you don't care about facts and justice. Your willingness to roll over and give up your ID just weakens our rights (sorry, never-mind you don't care about rights). Maybe we should get rid of the 1st Amendment? Oh sorry did that hit a little close to home?
