Yeah, they were already crying about discrimination the other day. I guess they have never actually looked at discrimination law, stores do not risk discrimination lawsuits as much as the government and things like banks.

That's crazy. You're only supposed to be able to deny business to gays and Muslims, not real Americans!

1. Ad. She's not doing math.

2. Despite the nature of NRA TV, I find it unlikely the hosts set the terms of their contracts.

3. We'll keep working on how to respond to comedy questions.

Yes, it is sort of like how they complain when people hijack their proposed twitter tags. Twitter tags that *anyone* who has ever been on the net can predict what will happen to.

I am still trying to figure out how their usage of it is different than the left (as opposed to centrists). With right vs alt-right there is a pretty clear dividing line, both being in Miriam-Webster even.

In my limited experiene, the only people who I've seen use 'Alt-Left' were the type of moderate that tries so hard to see both sides, to the exclusion of any common sense.

Down in that thread, there's what looks like a long-form series of articles into how exactly the Republicans came to embrace Russia quite so wholeheartedly:

I haven't been through them yet, so I can't vouch for them, but it seems worth checking out.

Hmm...

Quote:
One week later, the paper reported that Wilson had confessed to murdering his mother and sister.

The paper said Wilson led officers to where he buried the rifle used to kill them.

After prompting by his boss at the meat market, "Bobby reflected a moment, and then slowly added that last jigsaw piece with this account — a story already put together by officers, needing only his stamp of authenticity," the Weekly wrote.

Wilson admitted to shooting his mother, according to the paper. Then, when his sister ran at him, he crushed her skull with his rifle butt. He placed the bodies on the bed, poured gas around the house and lit a match, the paper reported.

"It was Sheriff Thornton's tenacious insistence that the bodies be sent to the state crime bureau for examination that spoiled what otherwise could easily have been the perfect crime," the Weekly reported. "Reports showed death came prior to the fire and from causes that later proved completely accurate.
Quote:
Court records show that three years after he was charged with the murders, Wilson filed with the court for "mental incapacity to make a rational defense."

He claimed he suffered from amnesia during the time of the allegations, and with no clear memory of the night's events, was unable to plan his defense with attorneys or tell his side of the story.

He said he dodged six bullets before reaching for the gun under his bed, which he then used to shoot his mother. He said if not for that gun, he'd be dead.

The NRA claims actions by New York state are harming its finances. Governor Cuomo's response: 'Too bad' | CNN
