Ron Paul has the stones to call shenanigans on a great many domestic things as well things (including but not limited to the banking industry/ FED, war on drugs, regulatory corruption, etc), which is why special interest groups would never support a libertarian candidate and hence libertarian candidates don't stand a chance in our one party system.

Way to slander a whole community, then get called out on it, then blame it on hearing it from someone else.

Probably some mythical deterrent that allows him to shake hands with people he doesn't know, in case they're gay, and protects him from catching their gay.

Interesting

Noteworthy, in spite of their important role, E-6Bs are among the few military planes advertising their position on the Web using full ADS-B.

This means they can be tracked on Planefinder.net or Flightradar24.com flying around the world using the bogus callsign “GOTO FMS”.

I know Pittsburgh is a big city, but still disappointing that this kind of stuff is starting to happen there too.

Police said Slepski was savagely beaten after the girls threw a bottle at her car on Concord Street and she stopped to confront them.
“I was mad. I knew they were younger. I thought they were in their early 20s. I got out and said, ‘What is your problem?’” Slepski said.

All four African-American girls then called her names before getting physically violent.

“They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive],’” Slepski said.

Slepski said she tried to get back into her car but the girls grabbed her by the hair.

“The one punched me in the head and I was on a set of concrete steps and my head hit the concrete so hard,” said Slepski. “Then they all got on top of me and all their hands were in my hair. They kept telling each other to, ‘Kick her in the head. Kick her head in the concrete.’”

Meh, that's not really up for debate. It's more depressing than anything else.

Yeah, definitely sarcasm. This wasn't necessarily a race-based attack, but the racial comments made it indefinsively so.

On another note, I would never get out of my car in the kind of neighborhood she was ostensibly in to pick a fight. If someone hits my car with a bottle, I am hauling ass out of there and making it for the nearest interstate.

Despite being born on the NS, it's unlikely that I would ever live there.

That isn't even what I think of as a bad area - its right by the Penn Brewery.

Good thing she didn't have a pistol on her :pop:

I agree. Some fights are worth passing over. Know who and where you are.
