How do you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans, and
Answer. Pose the following question:
You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock 23, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have the appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I
were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.This is all so confusing! I need
to confer with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.
I only see police chases on those specials, I have seen one live chase. That was on Fox News Channel one day when there was nothing on so the last 10 minutes of the "Fox Report" was a live police chase in LA, was kinda cool. Hara
I know that LA is bad about showing Car Chases (Probably most major metropolitan areas where each network affiliate has multiple helicopters), I don't think I've ever seen one Here. A couple of the local stations have helicopters, but It would cost way too much to justify that sort of expense for a few minutes of news footage.
This joke was originally circulated in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. I didn't find it amusing because the subtext is the same as the lies that were being used as a pretext for war: namely that Iraq was an imminent threat to the U.S. Who looks more sensible when you find out it was really a rubber knife, and the stray gunfire has maimed and killed innocent bystanders?
I don't know the true origins of this, so I can't confirm or deny what wotan says. I do know I work with a lot of people that are irrationally anti-gun. This is funny because it's true, at least for the dems I know.
