Rejected from Annapolis , leaves friend to die in a wreck, cannot even place his sidearm in a way he could access it without difficulty, has some stupid Spartan logo on his garbage gear. I would bet he does not care about that canines hearing either.

In length- fark that guy. I would love to see a real Vet in a chair beat his ass. Bonus if it was an Enlisted Marine . I would use my car as collateral to bail said Marine out of jail.


Super bonus if an actual crippled veteran broke her foot off in his ass.

Aussie_As: Throwing words like "apartheid" around in debates about masks is just farking disgusting.

Millions in South Africa suffered massive discrimination on the basis of their skin colour, a characteristic they were born with and had no choice in. That was disgusting.

But not all discrimination is disgusting. It's only disgusting when it's about attributes which we are born with or are fundamental to us. We all freely discriminate all the time, quite sensibly so. If someone's walking around in the middle of most cities with no pants on, you'll probably cross the road to avoid them and if you don't call the cops you won't be surprised when somebody does. That's normal discrimination. If you call it trousers apartheid you're a weirdo.

Similarly, the choice to mask or not mask is not only a simple, non-fundamental one (with few medically relevant exceptions, I give those genuine cases a pass) but it's painless and sensible in these pandemic times, just as it was a century ago during the Spanish Flu pandemic. They didn't die or particularly suffer due to masks then and we won't now. It's really farking simple.

So if you're throwing around words like apartheid or Nazi because you deem this comparable with massively life-changing (or indeed life-ending) discrimination fark you, you're not only an arsehole but your opinion can be stricken from the record, you just don't deserve any attention or to be taken seriously about anything.


Trousers apartheid is the name of my Midnight Oil tribute act zydeco band.

Perhaps a large tree will fall on Madison Cawthorn while he is punching a small tree and then the feeling is schadenfreude.

We are both educators. We can both parse information. Sure I'm straight but most of the ladies in my life are not. My first best friend growing up as a young teen was flaming gay. So no, I don't live my life through "straight white privilege".

You hate everybody that you don't agree with 100%. I'm not the same. Even though I don't have your life experience, that doesn't mean you can't spread love over hate.

Dude, too far.  Some of us are taking this too far.  I mean f$ck the dude but maybe not suggest (even in jest) incorporating his wheel chair to make him more helpless.

fark that.

He is a dick.

Climate and Covid denier.

That means he wants to kill my under twelve grandkids and past that if Covid doesn't fark them they want to ruin the air we breath.

This is their religion. This is what happens when you deal with a death cult.

I grew up among these people the only thing that will change his mind is a large kinetic mass and that will only relocate it.

Death is their end game so they can st before their god and mock you as you go to hell.

So yeah fark this guy to death. A wheelchair is not an excuse for being a farking asshole.

Had he had working legs I would have found a gif of Brock chucking a walking wrestler down some stairs.


Not about him.  It is about other people in wheel chairs and showing some respect to them.  Go after him as much as you want but the wheel chair angle gets tired after-a-while especially when it isn't clever.

My friend, that has been my experience in every workplace. 
Some people - lots of people - are better at politics than they are at doing their job.
If they put half the effort into doing the work that they should be doing instead of climbing the ladder, the world would be much better off. But, they are who they are. And they are, sadly, most of us. (and most of Fark... )

dr_blasto: Aussie_As: Throwing words like "apartheid" around in debates about masks is just farking disgusting.

Millions in South Africa suffered massive discrimination on the basis of their skin colour, a characteristic they were born with and had no choice in. That was disgusting.

But not all discrimination is disgusting. It's only disgusting when it's about attributes which we are born with or are fundamental to us. We all freely discriminate all the time, quite sensibly so. If someone's walking around in the middle of most cities with no pants on, you'll probably cross the road to avoid them and if you don't call the cops you won't be surprised when somebody does. That's normal discrimination. If you call it trousers apartheid you're a weirdo.

Similarly, the choice to mask or not mask is not only a simple, non-fundamental one (with few medically relevant exceptions, I give those genuine cases a pass) but it's painless and sensible in these pandemic times, just as it was a century ago during the Spanish Flu pandemic. They didn't die or particularly suffer due to masks then and we won't now. It's really farking simple.

So if you're throwing around words like apartheid or Nazi because you deem this comparable with massively life-changing (or indeed life-ending) discrimination fark you, you're not only an arsehole but your opinion can be stricken from the record, you just don't deserve any attention or to be taken seriously about anything.

Wearing it that high up means you're going to be practically doing the YMCA dance or the Hitler Salute with your draw stroke, it's going to be uncomfortable, and it's going to take more time to get the gun on target if you needed to use it.

For a guy in his position, he's better off either with a shoulder holster or a cross-draw holster that will keep the firearm out of his way.


Not anymore.  Its really up to the wearer, but when in vehicles it is easier to draw from chest than from waist-ish area with that style of holster.  You'll be on target a lot faster.

I've had to muzzle fark some people from sitting position while driving or as a passenger in MRAPs and my tank, and I can assure you, in the cramped space it's easier to reach to chest and get into ready position than across body (especially if in seated position).

Look at modern kit, kind of hard to draw from hip, leg, and or side like the above holster.

If you're on foot patrol, drop leg waist or on side is fine, but in vehicle and or sitting position drawing from chest is a lot faster in sitting position.


And considering...... he's always sitting, he is doing it right.

I don't think he should have access to firearms at all, but thats neither here nor there.

To be fair, he did come out of a crippling auto accident, and that damage could explain the cartoonishly bad handwriting.

After my aneurysm blew, I had some brain damage thanks to being deprived oxygen as my blood supply collected in my chest instead of circulating. It definitely affected my handwriting and I had to relearn how to paint and draw. My first attempts at both were...to be honest, they scared the sh*t out of me. My calligraphy has never recovered, save with a brush-my katakana and kanji both improved. It took months of practice to be legible, and my drawing style changed quite a lot.

I try to reserve judgement on his handwriting until I can see examples before his crash. I mean, he is the sort of douchebro to have cartoonishly bad written skills, but some of that could be brain/spinal damage.

But not all discrimination is disgusting. It's only disgusting when it's about attributes which we are born with or are fundamental to us. We all freely discriminate all the time, quite sensibly so. If someone's walking around in the middle of most cities with no pants on, you'll probably cross the road to avoid them and if you don't call the cops you won't be surprised when somebody does. That's normal discrimination. If you call it trousers apartheid you're a weirdo.

Similarly, the choice to mask or not mask is not only a simple, non-fundamental one (with few medically relevant exceptions, I give those genuine cases a pass) but it's painless and sensible in these pandemic times, just as it was a century ago during the Spanish Flu pandemic. They didn't die or particularly suffer due to masks then and we won't now. It's really farking simple.

So if you're throwing around words like apartheid or Nazi because you deem this comparable with massively life-changing (or indeed life-ending) discrimination fark you, you're not only an arsehole but your opinion can be stricken from the record, you just don't deserve any attention or to be taken seriously about anything.
