This discussion has existed since it was first written.
The state constitutions tried to clarify and then we had a divide in interpretation that propagated to other states. And this is before the Bill of Rights was ratified (1791). Funny how people never really change over 200 years. Anyway, many of the state constitutions clearly state that the right to bear arms includes defense of yourself not just forming a militia.
1776 North Carolina: That the people have a right to bear arms, for the defence of the State; and, as standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.
1776 Pennsylvania: That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the state; and as standing armies in the time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination, to, and governed by, the civil power.
Can someone tell me what the heck is going on with this article? Which New York team is "Jersey A" and which is "Jersey B"? WHy is there a link to a story about middle class security motorcades in India? Why is there a "Last Ship" synopsis in the middle of the article?
I think I blacked out for a moment there. What is going on?
Guess this is the very first time you've read anything from Gregg Easterbrook. I've been reading his TMQ articles for nearly a decade now. He wasn't always writing for ESPN.
Giants (Jersey A), Jets (Jersey . He adopts new names for most NFL teams (Jersey because neither Giants or Jets actually play football in NewYork.) Titans are the flaming thumbtacks, etc...and there's usually one team that is labeled "May contain football like substance".
It has always been a mix-mash of NFL, sports, politics, technology.
Going for it on 4th down in the Maroon zone (~35-45 yard lines).
Writing "game over" when coaches quit trying to actually win a game. Punting in the 4th quarter when you are down 14+ points. He loved Riverboat Ron last year.
Defenses blitzing on 3rd or 4th and long and giving up big plays.
Letting a receiver get behind you when the opposing team HAS to have a TD to tie/win.
Christmas creep (how holiday displays keep appearing earlier and earlier in stores)
A critique of whatever sci-fi/action show may be on air. (fringe, 24, Hawaii 5-0, some dinosaur show that was on Fox, etc...) Usually making fun of the writers.
Constantly making fun of sports "experts" and their predictions and weekly picks. He had some system to pick games straight up that was more accurate than most all ESPN, SI, USA Today sports writers. Home team wins, unless visiting team has 2+ more wins than home team. (or something like this)
I like his articles. Just don't take them serious.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko had a phone conversation with Prime Minister of Great Britain David Cameron.
The parties coordinated their actions on the response to the information regarding the entry of Russian military machines to the territory of Ukraine that has been clearly witnessed by international journalists, particularly of "Guardian" newspaper. The President informed that the given information was trustworthy and confirmed because the majority of that machines had been eliminated by the Ukrainian artillery at night.
Wonder if Pooty-Poot made sure there were "humanitarian" supplies in this convoy so that Ukraine would look like the aggressor here.
