F*ck You New York Times

From the NYT:

Jared Kushner’s Entitlement Is New Jersey Born and Bred

Lots of explanations have been put forward as to why Mr. Kushner seems to operate as though the rules don’t apply to him. Perhaps there’s one more factor to consider: his New Jersey upbringing.

Anyone who has ever driven on the New Jersey Turnpike knows that, at a certain point in the road, the entire Manhattan skyline appears to rise from the surrounding marshland like a close-yet-so-far Land of Oz, both tempting and terrorizing with its mysterious jutting cutouts. To traverse this roadway, as Mr. Kushner surely did as a young man, was undoubtedly to exist in a constant state of aspiration and alienation. No matter one’s personal glories, for those who call New Jersey home, and especially those who reside in Northern New Jersey, it’s difficult to forget that one is still not from “the city,” as the landmass across the river is known. Overcompensation tends to follow. Blind arrogance is an occasional byproduct.

I know because I remember experiencing such feelings myself while growing up in Bergen County in the 1970s and ’80s. While Mr. Kushner was raised in Livingston, an upper-middle-class town of 30,000 in neighboring Essex County, he attended school in Paramus, a middle-class town a dozen miles from the edge of Manhattan that, with its surfeit of malls, has long held the status of a punch line. How an intelligent young man could have spent his formative years in such a place — never mind at an Orthodox yeshiva — and not come away feeling humbled in some way remains something of a mystery.

But then, while New Jersey has become increasingly diverse, it’s also a place where dollar signs largely determine status and conspicuous consumption is celebrated as an inalienable right. “Fast Cars, Women, Money!” read the poster that the guy from Alpine (an enclave of celebrities and multimillionaires), who lived next door to me in my freshman dorm at college, unabashedly pinned to the wall over his bed. Naturally, it featured a bikini model sprawled across a Porsche.

  6. 3b says:

    Fab My point was and it is obvious you missed it was that liberals in general portray themselves as sophisticated educated and compassionate and only ignorant white trash uneducated people would make a comment like pumps did last night. My point is the ignorance and hatred exists on both sides something you always seem to ignore or deflect.

  7. exjersey says:

    Relativism- will get you nowhere.

  8. 3b says:

    Ex Jersey Because I said things were getting ugly in Barcelona I suck? Oh ok! And no I am not. Oh and by the way you seem to have become much angrier since you moved to the west coast. You strike me as a rather unhappy person. Just an observation.

  9. exjersey says:

    The fact is that people are looking for a “motive” when for all intents and purposes it looks like “one of your own” turned on you with an arsenal that he had no business being in possession of.

    Hackneyed pieces like this one are the reason the New York Times is failing.

    I used to buy the Sunday version of the paper for the real estate section. I stopped 10 years ago, when the New York Times should have invested in the technology and staff to dominate real estate news and home listings in the New York area. What a missed opportunity. Now the New York Times real estate section reads like the 2016 election coverage – unoriginal and useless in today’s media environment When was the last time this paper got a real estate scoop?

  21. Yo! says:

    I just checked out the New York Times real estate section for the first time in 10 years. The top story is, “Homes for Sale in Toronto.”

    New York Times leadership if you are reading this: Please fire your entire real estate staff and shut down the section. Then hire James Bednar at a huge salary to restart it. Mr. Bednar does not have a journalism degree, but history confirms he is better at digital real estate journalism than you and he does it on a tight budget too.

  23. exJersey says:

    I’ll leave this here while you guys sort out whether or not the Times is worth reading: (SMH) “If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” Obama said then. “Period. Enough is enough.” -B. Obama

    re: Hackneyed pieces….

    That Leonia B+T author in her early life lived some detached sitcom life where she and her crowd emualated their lives upon 1990s shows like “Friends” and “Sex and the City”. Now the author lives in Brooklyn which still is Bridge and Tunnel.

    Stop projecting Phoebe and go out and get a real job.

  25. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    And here lady and gents is all you need to know about the unhinged author of that shallow, demeaning, anti-semetic and extremely lame piece.

    She grew up in Leonia, New Jersey, where she attended the Leonia Public Schools before going to the private Dwight-Englewood School for high school.

    Rosenfeld is married to economics writer John Cassidy of The New Yorker. They live in Brooklyn, New York and have two young daughters.

    9:10 — “I had some long periods of severe depression. I took some hard knocks and retreated from the world and lived in this little cabin. I didn’t see a lot of people. I wasn’t happy, and I didn’t want to lay that on everybody. Even when I was in public, I didn’t want to be there, and that’s a terrible feeling. It took me a while to want to come back.” Tom Petty (2006)

  30. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Love how this author describes Livingston as upper middle class. If that’s upper middle class, what the hell is rich?

  31. ex-Jersey says:

    My point is — yeah – you have to read other ideas and listen to both sides of the story to get what the deal really is. Once you run out of answers in your echo chamber. You have to read that material and not personalize it. I really liked living in Northern NJ btw.

  32. ex-Jersey says:

    I know I’m ignored here, but it’s fun to ruffle feathers from behind a keyboard.

    Eagerness to be ‘let in’? Check.

    QED.

  35. ex-Jersey says:

    Livingston did have an excellent Pre-school program for the toddler years. We loved it. Otherwise though, I have met too many people that grew up in Livingston and carry the scars. But you can probably say that about a lot of upscale towns. Damaging, ULTRA-competitive and openly so in unattractive ways. People so consumed with fitting in that they all wear the same clothes and drive the same car. And yet you are essentially land-locked and really just stuck there between the overpasses. Yeeeeeesh. Hey you gotta live somewhere. AMIRITE>>?

  36. Juice Box says:

    re: ruffle feathers

    Are you on your meds today or are you going to threaten to beat us up again?

  37. ex-Jersey says:

    The Caveat is…I liked living in Northern NJ when we had money to burn. We hit Broadway shows, concerts, great restaurants. Because people, people….people. NYC is the draw over there. We all know dat. Narrow that band around the City and watch it glow. I love NY. There is no other way to put it.

    It’s my understanding that:
    – it’s illegal to buy an automatic weapon and has been for almost a century now.
    – it’s illegal for manufacturers to produce automatic weapons and has been for multiple decades (except if they’re for the military).
    – it’s illegal to modify any semi-auto into a full auto.

    Not you, necessarily, but I suppose people are saying we need to outlaw semi-automatic rifles? If that’s the only change, then 95%

    “At least 84 people have been killed and 119 have been injured so far this year in 86 shooting incidents involving assault-style rifles, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive, a not-for-profit corporation that tracks gun violence. Those numbers include the casualties at Pulse nightclub over the weekend. There have been at least 267 incidents involving assault-style rifles in 2016, including reported weapons thefts, crimes in which the guns were brandished, arrests for illegal possession and other legal interventions in which they weren’t fired. Those deaths account for about 2 percent of the 6,153 gun deaths and less than 1 percent of the 12,560 gun injuries the Gun Violence Archive has counted so far this year. ”

    Nope.

    That being said, I understand hunting rifles and handguns. I think any type of automatic weapon should be off limits. There’s a difference between banning all guns and reasonable proposed legislation.

    So make that illegal too… and you’ve eliminated 1% of the problem. Well done. I’m not opposed to making changes, even this one; I’m just pointing out that typically problems get solved by focusing on the 80 rather than the 20 (or in this case the 98% rather than the 2%).

    That really is some cr*p, nothing like some pretentious writer from the NYT stereotyping and painting an entire place with a broad brush. Honestly people in NJ are more real and in your face than NYers. Livingston is what I call mixed, there is quite a bit of nice middle class housing and a whole bunch of mega mansions, West Orange is similar in that vein, it’s not Short Hills. I don’t get what’s wrong with it, it’s a nice normal suburb, boring clean and nice, a good place to raise a family. People from NJ don’t have to compensate for anything, except a horribly corrupt liberal government. No wonder no one is reading the NYTimes, because the author doesn’t like someone’s political views they use personal attacks and smear an entire state, which has a lot of your readers.

  51. leftwing says:

    Joyce, fileting liberal number two with facts. Ba-beeee. Keep it up.

  52. 3b says:

    Jcer it is typical. She is not the only one. Lots of these NYC urban so called sophisticated people have the same attitude. And ironically many of these people grew up in these same type of nice but boring towns and many are not even native to the NYC metro area. I t is like when I correct people on NYC as being more than Manhattan and perhaps now Brooklyn. Craft beer fusion food and all skirts of other endear that they deem to be sophisticated seem fake to me. And seem like they are tortured in their efforts to live up to this level of sophistication.

    JCer

    Livingston is loaded with sociopaths, hypocrites, and people suffering from cognitive dissonance.

    we rented a house there for a year to see how we like the area.

    1) the neighbors looked down on us because we were renting. Like we were low lives. They would make patronizIng comments all the time.

    2) Livingston has a great program for special ed students: we knew families that moved there to put their kids in those programs and these families had mainstreamed kids as well. They all complained about the property taxes. Never mind the fact they moved their with a special neeeds kid that would cost the district 40-100k a year.

    3) the trophy moms could care less about their kids. They would let their toddler and preschool kids loose at the town pool and ignore their kids claiming it was the lifeguards job to watch them anyway. They would also complain when the schools were closed since they would be stuck with the kids. I even heard groups of moms whining about school ending on Wednesday and they couldn’t send their kids off to sleep away camp till Monday, and what were they supposed to do with ththe m for 4 whole days

    4) the majority of the parents coddled or ignored their kids creating entitled self absorb d kids

    It really is an awful place .

  57. Grim says:

    For years I said I’d rather drink domestic beer with neighbors in Clifton than hobnob with snooty assholes in Brigadoon and the like. No offense or anything, but the people were at least real and genuine. Those kinds of folks are hard to find in the upscale areas, generally you lose that once you go through your first year of indoctrination.

  58. JJ fanboy says:

    And the pool was frequently closed. Almost every time we would go their a future Wall Street icon would drop a deuce in the pool and the pool would have to be cleaned and no one was allowed in the water for 2 hours.

    I figured those kids were training for Wall st or the media. Drop a deuce in an instant because no one was watching and it would take a long time to recover while damaging and inconvenience many.

  59. exjersey says:

    Grim,

    Those blue ribbon towns are awful. I would rather have lived in a blue collar town than a blue ribbon. My wife wanted to see what it was like to live in those snobby places. We both much prefer our area in Texas

  61. 3b says:

    Grim I agree. I can do the whole sophisticated thing when required or expected etc. But I would much rather be hanging around with my first second generation blue collar ethnic friends drinking beers. They are much more authentic and all have done well for themselves. They never felt a need to become something they are not.

  62. 3b says:

    Jj fan lots of blue ribbon towns have those same types of people as Livingston the blue ribbony towns are full of them.

  63. leftwing says:

    “When will we start talking about divisive partisan politics as being a contributor to hate and itself a deadly weapon? When will we start talking about finding treatment for mental illness again?”

    Give that man a prize.

    There are no recorded mass shootings prior to 1966. Between 1966 and 2006 – a total of 40 years – there were four mass shootings accounting for 74 deaths. Tragic, but one a decade.

    In the last decade there have been 12 mass shootings accounting for 237 deaths.

    Repeating firearms have been around for nearly two centuries. Soft targets of hundreds of people have existed for millennia. The same types of weapons were available in 1966 and 2017. Regulations are more strict in 2017.

    Hey liberals, still think it’s about the weapons? Notice anything particular about the start date of mass shootings and the last decade? Still getting confused by those pesky facts?

  64. JJ fanboy says:

    We lived in 2 other blue ribbon towns. They weren’t quiet as bad as Livingston. Although they sucked too.

  65. 3b says:

    Jj the worst are the first and second generation types first ones who went to college. The uber wealthy who I worked with ironically for the most part had no airs. I guess generations of wealth made them more secure in themselves.

    Left so what do we attribute the increase to? I ask in all seriousness ad I don’t know.

  67. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    “When will we start talking about divisive partisan politics as being a contributor to hate and itself a deadly weapon?”

    Boom.

    The real story in Vegas was a gambling addiction gone too far. Dude was a video poker player. My fellow APs claim he was in deep with MGM. He was dead either way. He chose to take out others with him. I really don’t think this about guns. And even if it is, like Joyce said, you can ban semi-automatics even and it won’t put a dent in gun crime. That dude would have probably just driven a car into the pedestrians walking across the strip at the corner of Flamingo or Trop and done even more damage. Really with guns, it’s all or nothing.

    What continues to irk me is how this story turns divisive. Some white dude loses his mind and takes out innocents. How the hell is this partisan? Humans are so dumb.

    As for debating Livingston, the more money people have, the more they all try to emulate each other. That article was written to get morons like us talking about it. In five years, those two progressives will probably be looking in Montclair or Maplewood.

  68. 3b says:

    Lib but why are more and more of these incidents occurring? That is what I am trying to understand. Why not blow your head off in a hotel room and be done with it?

  69. Blue Ribbon Teacher says:

    Not you, necessarily, but I suppose people are saying we need to outlaw semi-automatic rifles? If that’s the only change, then 95%

    I meant to say semi. Basically, I understand hunting rifles for hunting, hand guns for protection, sniper rifles for sport/hobby, collectables and antiques for nostalgia. But any gun capable of cycling and unloading massive amounts of destruction is unnecessary. We might as well allow people to have grenade launchers and bazookas.

  70. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    I would posit the increase is due to:

    1) Larger population, greater likelihood of anything occurring really.
    2) Gun games have desensitized mass shooters.
    3) Income gap widening.
    4) Crap people read on the internet.
    5) N1pple rings.

  71. 3b says:

    Lib wheels just seem to be coming off the bus.

  72. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    Yup! But there’s a hell of a lot of buses in this country. Some times I wish there were less crumbs.

    It is a pleasure to not be surrounded by pretentious posers.

    My new neighbors are retirees, a cop, a teacher , a few work in factories. There is no keeping up with the joneses.

    You also will not see 2 70k vehicles parked in the driveway of a rotting house. Even in the million dollar neighborhoods most people drive some sort of loaded gm SUV

    And most of my neighbors do their own lawn work.

    A progressive neighbor in nj once said to me “why do you mow your lawn? That’s why god made Mexicans “

  74. Grim says:

    Do we have any indication of motive yet?

    Gambling debt? Seems odd. Can’t you claim bankruptcy to discharge gambling debt?

    His father was a psychopath apparently, perhaps there is a genetic reason.

  75. A Home Buyer says:

    BRT –

    Assault rifles are not a distinguishable class or category of Firearms on their own. They mirror hunting rifles but have a MIL-SIM plastic aesthetic. Same capability as a hunting rifle otherwise.

    A “Sniper” rifle does not exist either. Any hunting caliber rifle can hit 100 to 150 yards scoped. Large game rifles used in the plains can hit a quarter mile with some decent skill. Heck, people put scopes on pistol revolvers.

    As for the amount of destruction… this demented soul illegally combined products to produce an illegal class of weapon. No different than combining legal household chemicals to produce an illegal substance. And assuming this was somehow “legal” to do what he did, this is perhaps the first known occurrence of it ever being used in a crime from what I read.

    They also had 20 rifles on hand. Even limited to 3 rounds a magazine, he was not running out of fire power anytime soon. Besides being stationary he would have had time to load dozens, if not hundreds of magazine in advance for fast switching.

  76. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    Probably a combo of both.

    I was told he was a high-stakes gambler and knew what he was doing. Got in over his head most likely. Combine this with a genetic tendency to act like a psychopath and this is the result. I could be wrong, but my sources on the VP side can be trusted. If I’m right, MGM may be implicated for not cutting him off. Come to think of it (I stupidly didn’t make the connection), Mandalay is an MGM property. I’m sure in a few days, someone will leak the cas1no eye in the sky tapes.

  77. Libturd sporting Tiger Wood says:

    This still wouldn’t apply a motive that most people would like, but gamblers in over their heads act irrationally. When you finally come to the realization that you blew 10 years worth of savings on essentially a stupid video game and you are smart enough to know you can’t ever get it back. You might make some stupid choices. You see, gambling addicts have it way worse than drug addicts or alkis. They can’t feed their habit once they are broke. High-rollers, feel it even worse due to the stakes involved. It’s hard to put into words. But when this is over, the argument might switch to addiction and not mental illness.

  78. Fast Eddie says:

    When will we start talking about divisive partisan politics as being a contributor to hate and itself a deadly weapon?

    Assault weapons aren’t in the hands of civilians, or at least not many of them. None of the mass shootings of late was conducted with an assault weapon. The last one of which I am aware was the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

    You are talking about weapons made to look like assault weapons. And the fixation on cosmetics is attributable to ownership and politics; the so-called “assault weapons ban” is a proxy for a politically-motivated disarmament effort. Silly thing is that it’s like closing a window and leaving 8 more open.

  87. exjersey says:

  88. Comrade Nom Deplume, Pumpkin Spice version. says:

    Yome,

    “If you make them illegal is there a guarantee criminals will not be able to get them?”

    Presently, criminals can get them easily, and often they cost less on the street than in the gun store. I recall a documentary on a town in the Phillipines that has a virtual cottage industry in home-based gunsmithing. Guess where the majority of the guns wind up?

    We can’t interdict drugs or humans at the border. Imagine how hard it will be to stop gunrunning? Not to mention the millions of guns here that don’t simply decompose.

    This is why I stock up on ammo, not guns.

  89. Comrade Nom Deplume, Pumpkin Spice version. says:

    BRT,

    “But any gun capable of cycling and unloading massive amounts of destruction is unnecessary. We might as well allow people to have grenade launchers and bazookas.”

    Would you allow these weapons to the State Militias? Not the National Guard, but the State Militias, of which every state has the ability to call up and a few have active units.

    What if a state opened its militia to volunteers and implemented a BYOG policy? Now you have the veneer of state militia covering ownership. What then?

  90. Bystander says:

    Mitch Hedberg od’ed in Livingston. That makes it suck on face.

    Comrade I give up if that is the case. What is the answer? Hope there are no more incidents like this?

  92. Comrade Nom Deplume, Pumpkin Spice version. says:

    Seems I am behind the curve when it comes to imaginative lawsmithing. This is from a proposed Executive Order (proposed from outside, not an actual Exec Branch draft):

    “Section 4. Designation of Militia Rifles. That the following firearms and accessories are authorized and appropriate for individual citizens to keep and bear for Militia purposes under the Constitution and the laws of the United States:

    (a) The AR-15 and similar semi-automatic rifles, to include flash suppressors and bayonet lugs, magazines of up to thirty round capacities, M-7 bayonets, and ammunition in 5.56 NATO or .223 Remington, in all quantities.

    (b) The M1A and similar semi-automatic rifles, to include flash suppressors and bayonet lugs,magazines of up to twenty round capacities, M-6 bayonets, and ammunition in 7.62 NATO or .308 Winchester, in all quantities.

    (c) The M1 Garand and similar semi-automatic rifles, to include flash suppressors and bayonet lugs, M-5 bayonets, and ammunition in.30-’06 Springfield, in all quantities.

    (d) Bolt action rifles in the calibers of .30-’06 Springfield; 7.62 NATO or .308 Winchester; 5.56 NATO or .223 Remington; or any substantially equivalent caliber, and ammunition appropriate for the rifles, in any quantity.”

    Basically, the idea is to put the weapons under the scope of the Militia Clause of the Second Amendment, thus effectively creating a tension that would have to be resolved by the courts. The problem is that a state can simply nullify it by passing legislation to make clear that there is no militia until activated or simply repeal its militia laws altogether.

    Good thought but simply for show.

  93. Comrade Nom Deplume, Pumpkin Spice version. says:

    3b says:
    October 3, 2017 at 1:40 pm
    Comrade I give up if that is the case. What is the answer? Hope there are no more incidents like this?”

    There will always be incidents like this. Timothy McVeigh killed a lot more people and didn’t fire a single round.

    The bans proposed won’t solve the problem, even the proponents admit it. It won’t even stop the production of equivalent weapons. Take away my AR and I still have my Mini-14, which has the same capability and uses the same ammo.

  94. A Home Buyer says:

    Yome,

    Criminal is the wrong word. What this individual did, and others before him, is without a doubt illegal across a wide breadth of criminal codes. These individuals are attacking civilization as a whole and without gain for themselves, breaking laws in the process, but fundamentally so much deeper then a criminal.

    These individuals are broken. The end result they wish for is either death or a global stage to preach from before execution by the State. They are not concerned with consequences, they have no fear of reprisal.

    Is it mental health? I have no idea. But the people committing these atrocities are no longer “people” in the sense that they have rejected the society we find ourselves in.

    This will not end with simply restricting the tools such as knives, firearms, semi-trucks, explosives, chemicals, etc. As our technology progresses and becomes available to the individual, the ways we find ourselves vulnerable will only increase.

    Without going into detail and just one example: 3D Metal Printing.

    We as a society need to figure out why this is happening. Hiding this under a rug with stopgap measures will only lead to much greater pain in the future when we will be even more vulnerable.

    Washington Post analysis of Federal Reserve’s most recent survey of consumer finances: 1 in 7 white households have net worth’s of more than $1 million versus 1 in 50 black households.

    An objective journalist would’ve have mentioned Obama’s economic policies, but this journo – who covers the race and economics beat – blamed the situation in part on housing redlining practices that have been banned for decades.

    Question asked yesterday of the Right relevant to today’s conversation:

    “Well what are YOU going to do to prevent this in the future?”

    A: Absolutely nothing. It is not preventable. We will in the future most certainly continue to have DWI deaths, drug overdose deaths, airplane crash deaths, and the killing of innocents by firearms.

    Can’t put the genie back in the bottle guys. Can try to make changes on the margins – mental health screening, waiting periods, smaller magazines – but none of these would have made a difference in the recent shootings. And, even if they could, as has been pointed out the determinedly disturbed would simply find another technological outlet, like a delivery truck in Nice or McVeigh in OKC.

  145. The Great Pumpkin says:

    No kidding. The simplest way of explaining the major flaw of capitalism is the game of monopoly.

    “Economic inequalities have soared. Income and wealth inequality have risen significantly across most advanced economies since the 1980s,” Citi and Oxford write in the report. “Top income and wealth shares have driven much of the increase in inequalities. There is no sign of a reversal.”

  146. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Capitalism at its roots is a competition. (As long as there is true competition, capitalism rules!) Problem is, most competitions do not remain competitive. Over time, someone wins the competition. Here in lies the problem with capitalism. It thrives on competition, but competition are won, they are not constants in any shape or form.

    “Moreover, the rise is ubiquitous. Inequalities have been rising “between regions, between generations, between industries, and between firms.””

  147. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Yes, how many times have I said this. You want to fix income inequality because it destroys economic growth by hoarding vast sums of capital into idle positions. Money was never meant to be idle, it has a purpose, and must swerve its purpose. When too much money reaches too few hands, the vast sums of capital can’t find a purpose because there is no means of demand.

    “Citi Research and the Oxford Martin School also confirm a trend recently highlighted in research from the International Monetary Fund. That is, inequality can hurt economic growth, and more unequal countries tend to grow more slowly over time than more equal ones.”

    Equifax (EFX) is now tasked with helping the agency “verify taxpayer identity and to assist in ongoing identity verification and validations needs,” according to contract details posted online.
    The agreement was first reported by Politico.
    The posting identifies the contract as a “sole source order,” which indicates that the government thinks Equifax is the only company that can do the job. The designation also means the government doesn’t need to open up a competitive bidding process to let other companies make a pitch.

    Could you just imagine Moana’s reaction if he was at the concert? Rather than running for cover, he’d probably try livetweeting a message to Ian Bremmer.

    Contra Clinton’s claim, I read an expert say that this guy’s guns with a silencer are as quiet as a jackhammer.
    Kids used to be taught why it is a good thing the US is not a democracy, but rather a constitutional republic with representatives elected by democratic vote.
    The founding fathers went out of their way to explain the faults of democracies.
    But the explanation doesn’t fit within the space of a tweet. Key concept – protection of individual rights require constraints on majorities to impose their will.

    80% of NJRereport readers would like to see pumpkin and puzzy silenced.

    You are too generous. The number must be closer to 100%.

    Car wash? What will you guys reasonably pay for basic wash + vacuum and windows on the interior?

  203. JJ fanboy says:

    Libturd

    $8 is the going rate with the customer using the vacuum in my area. $10-$12 if you want the wheels and tires washed and shined

    The places cheaper then that have a habit of readjusting molding and gaskets as the car goes through it

  204. JJ fanboy says:

    Oh. Windows too? I am too cheap for that

  205. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Okay, I’ll bite.

    Protection of individual rights, huh? So where is the individual’s right to life in vegas, the most sacred of all rights? Right, they were taken away by a mad man with the right to purchase guns and shoot them from some window like a pu$$y. What do you have to say about the individuals that lost their god given right to life so that someone could have the right to own a gun.

    OMG the mayor of San Juan had another t-shirt printed up for a tv interview. yes she did that. Google it. WTF? How is she able to get T-Shirts printed on an island where there is no power?

  207. STEAMturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    “How is she able to get T-Shirts printed on an island where there is no power?”

    She borrowed power from a neighboring island. It’s the Puerto Rican way.

  208. No One says:

    Right, you bite.
    The shooter violated their rights.
    The government exists to protect their rights, but government isn’t omniscient and omnipotent.
    Similarly, the government should protect your property rights, but if a robber breaks into your house and steals your d1ld0, it’s not the government’s fault unless it happened while a policeman was parked in your driveway.

  209. D-FENS says:

    He violated their rights. Murder is illegal.

    I have a hard time believing you didn’t already know this.

  211. Comrade Nom Deplume, whose sole regret is that he isn't Tom Brady says:

    An old girlfriend told me about the latest conspiracy theory from the left. That the shooter in Las Vegas was up to his eyeballs in debt and was told by those holding the debt that it would go away if he did this massacre, what the theory that it would drive up gun sales. The conspiracy theory rest surmised that the gun manufacturers are behind the massacre.

    If he wanted to pay off his gambling debts, he should have challenged Billy Jean King to a tennis match.

    Okay, right to bear arms…..so why not grebades or rocket launchers. Wtf is the difference?

  214. The Great Pumpkin says:

    So let me get this straight, those children in schools would not be alive if we didn’t outlaw guns? And when I say you outlaw it, I mean outlaw it. Make it a penalty by death for being in possession of a gun. Problem solved. Now you don’t have to worry about criminals possessing guns, and if they decide to get stupid, they are dead.

  215. STEAMturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    My arms are so damn hairy I’d be in trouble if they took away my right to bear arms. Of course, I could shave them and still bare arms.

  216. Grim says:

    We can barely keep drugs from pouring into this country. Would imagine that illegal guns would pour in just the same.

  217. abeiz says:

    Nom,
    I would have gone with a billionaire hedge funder ordering the massacre to execute a carefully devised option strategy on gun stocks which would net him hundreds of millions. Everyone knows that hedgies have no souls, so entirely possible. Gun companies? Messy. It would have to be a consortium. Would have been neater to just claim the NRA set this up.

  218. STEAMturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    I’m sticking with just psycho. Nothing to hide.

    Heard it too many times, I make 250k a year, but I’m not well off because I live in
    a high cost of living area. Keep telling yourself that. That’s how much of a bubble you are living in.

    “According to IRS data, 99 percent of American households make less than $388,000 a year, and 95 percent make less than $167,000 a year. The true middle in terms of income — that is, the cutoff to be in the top 50 percent of earners — is roughly $35,000 a year.”
