All the while the LAPD remains so corrupt that a service man had to plan for years to out the corruption and attempt to clean house.......

They have no interest in stopping crime, they just want to take from others.

Meh, I wouldn't mind moving to Canada if it came to that. They're friendly except if you're playing one of their teams in hockey. I don't think that'll ever come to fruition, but it's not a bad option. Maybe I'm biased though; my family ventured into the US from the North a few decades ago.

But I guess, as a resident of the City of Chicago for a few years, I simply laugh at those who think bans and much stricter laws (in the flavor of the proposed) are the answer. More stringent background checks? I'm ok with that. Much stiffer penalties for those who obtain or distribute firearms illegaly? DEFINITELY on board with that. No tolerance on repeat violent offenders? MOST DEFINITELY on board with that.

Funny though how the Dem states are doing that one-upper shit like they're trying to stick their noses so far up Obama's butt that they can smell his breath. All the while, this is costing us (and by "us" I mean the taxpayers) tons of money we apparently don't have, spearheaded by misinformation about what weapons were used at SH, using the tragedy to push political agendas.... Brilliant. Ds and Rs do have something very important in common: as politicians, they can't get shit done on any level.

It really is just a giant circus. I don't think we need to take the Government back from the Politicians as much as we need to take Politics back from the Democrats and Republicans. They're really hijacking the system.

I didn't mean "move" there.... if you get my drift.

I hear ya on everything else though. We need people in government doing SERVICE, not making a career out of it. This life long politician thing has got to stop.

Oh. Being a friendly Canadian, I simply assumed that's what you meant.

California can get away so much just because it's beautiful with lots of resources and a great climate. People put up with the laws and expense for the lifestyle. Looks like they're squeezing a bit too hard now though, so yeah...Texas is reaping the benefits.

We'll all rendezvous in TX and create our plan to expand the TX boarders.

With spelling like that, I sincerely hope you go in that direction rather than north. Your kind would be welcome in Texas. Go there. Good idea. I like it. A+

So much for you being friendly, eh? You got me, i'm an idiot. I totally misspelled that. I don't even know how to spell borders. If only i were a quality human being such as yourself; maybe then i could be so noble as to point out a typo in a pathetic effort to belittle someone.

I'm not sure i'll ever recover from this humiliating incident. Everyone thinks i'm completely illiterate now. All my friends are going to avoid me. My dog won't even want me to walk him anymore.... if only i had payed attention in school and learned how to spell correctly.... The shame i've brought to my family, if i were japanese i would probably just kill myself out of shame.

I suppose it's a good thing i'm not japanese and it's also a good thing that the vast majority of people view self righteous spelling nazis such as yourself for the turd burglars that they really are.

BTW, given the choice, i'd move to Texas over Canada any day of the week and twice on sunday.

I guess they don't want us normal citizens shooting back at the cops when they mistake our vehicles for a suspects and start unloading on it without verifying who is in it.

Shoot first, ask questions later!
