So the folks at the concerts at Howelson wearing the yellow vest with the word "police" are not necessarily police. Then why do their vests say police. How about volunteers.
Phoebe, saying that Dan S. Did not stoop to their level would be stretching the truth a bit. While I am not condoning any of the comments that were removed, you did notice that the person you suggested did not stoop to their level had comments removed as well. So I would suggest he did stoop to their level. I politely challenged him and asked for a response to a question. His response was a rant which eventually was removed. Not by my request as I have no interest in having any comment on this forum removed. We should all be free to make fools of ourselves (which I have indeed done in the past and hope to not repeat that mistake).
Ah yes Dan S. You are a beauty. I politely asked you how you would have handled the situation had you been in Brian's father's situation. You did not have the courtesy to answer. I did as you suggested and looked up "brandishing a weapon". Then politely showed how it would have been possible that Brian's actions may have been allowable under the law. And you respond with another hateful rant.
Nice job Russell. Glad to hear you found a motivator and stuck with. You and your grand kids are beneficiaries.
Hey Dan S. As you are mocking the "brandishing" of a gun. Just curious. If it were you instead of Brian's dad in this situation how would you have handled it differently?
Famous Family Story: While I was an infant, my parents took a day trip to the mountains. We stopped at one of their favorite spots. At some point during our stay, a couple of bikers rolled in. Dad could tell they were trouble, so he packed wife & kid into the car. During the load up, one of the bikers shouted at Dad to hand over “summa that g00k %#$$y” (Mom was Asian). Loudmouth wheeled his hog behind the car, blocking the exit. He dismounted, walked to the the driver's window & leaned in to find himself looking down the barrel of Dad’s .357. Loudmouth backed away slowly and returned to his bike. He and his compadre saddled up and rode off.
Dan S. says "brandishing a weapon is a crime. Look it up." Brandishing a weapon can be a crime. Of course what Dan S. doesn't say is that in certain circumstances brandishing a weapon is not a crime. Hey Dan S. I looked it up.
"A victim also might be justified in showing a weapon and warning that he will shoot if necessary, even if the aggressor has no weapon and is threatening or attacking the victim with his fists or other parts of body. If the victim who brandished the gun is charged with threatening another person with a deadly weapon, he can present evidence that he showed the gun in self defense—to get the assailant to back off."
I was not present for either of the altercations that Brian described but my best guess is that based on the above quote in neither situation would the charge of the crime of brandishing a weapon been possible.
So Dan S. rant on as you wish. Facts, you don't need no steenking facts.
You can't make this stuff up. I just noticed that Dan S posted this sentence on June 28 at 8:59 AM "Marc, why do you insist in making inflammatory and clearly false statements in order to make a point". Me thinks Dan S. Should ask himself the same question.
Wow. Dan S. On the loose. I love it.
Ahhh, Dan S. The gift that keeps on giving.
My opinion. It does not appear to be the "dream" it once was. My wife and I are blessed with three children 29,27,24. There appears to be no interest currently from any of them to own their own home. I would guess that all lot of people in their generation know of somebody that lost their home or were severely burdened with an underwater home and mortgage situation.
There is a caveat in that none of our 3 have "settled down". Not married, no children so that could change things.
They are much more mobile and free to pursue employment opportunities with out the issue of trying to sell a home. To the best of my knowledge the majority of their friends are renters as well.
I am some what aware that there are again ways to purchase a home with less then the old traditional 20% down (here we go again?) but those low down payment loans do not appear to be as prevalent, so accumulating the 20% down payment may be a hindrance as well.
My wife and I have had the conversation about our own housing and at this point were we to move we would strongly consider renting. Let somebody else do the maintenance. LOL.
What's your perspective?
