I think Trump should appoint Ted Nugent to the Supreme Court.  That would be cool.

I think Alice Cooper would write more interesting opinions.

Starting the sessions by welcoming the attorneys to his nightmare.

Trump is likely to pick one of the women on his list, my guess Amy Coney Barrett.

It's going to be fun watching the media and dems melting down and accusing her of pedophila, genocide, and crimes against humanity.

Can't wait to watch feminists try to destroy a woman of outstanding professional achievement who is also raising seven children - having it all just like feminists told us to.

I'm 9 miles from downtown Seattle in a typical suburb and see coyotes on my street. People with cameras up catch them all the time, in the day now more frequently. One recently caught a coyote with a cat or small dog in it's mouth.

The "lost pet" signs around the neighbor are all mostly like not lost, but a coyote's dinner.

Coyotes have adapted quite well to urban life.

Her eponymous rifles are pretty kick ass, too.

I noticed that “shoot them“ does not appear on the recommendation list.

I am in Washington DC, proper, and I see coyotes in my street(s).

In urban areas I'd be worried about stray rounds...

The best way to get rid of coyotes is to let a road runner run by them, so they'll chase it out of town. It helps if there is a cliff they can run off, with a "Look Down" sign hanging in midair after they run off the cliff

We had a standard poodle who was a very protective dog. But if he was outside and heard a coyote, he'd run to the door and whimper.

Depending on where you live, there may be laws against discharging a firearm within city limits.

Years after 9/11 and apologetic tropes for terrorism go on, let's speak up

“Progressive” attempts to make excuses for, or deflect attention away from, the savagery of the ideology motivating jihadist killings remain absolutely par for the course. The scourge of radical Islamic terrorism claims significant numbers of innocent lives across the world annually, and the West has been racked by a large number of attacks in recent years. After each one, we are put through the same tired attempts to deflect attention from the medieval religious ideology behind it, to equivocate, to blame ourselves. The same tropes are repeated with mind-numbing predictability – the attacker must have been a lone wolf, the attackers were mentally ill, the attack had “nothing to do with Islam,” it is only an Islamophobic backlash that we should fear rather than the next jihadist atrocity (can’t we fear both?), and so on.

But the last few lines contain this gem:

Of course anti-Muslim bigotry must be guarded against, but we can call out such bigotry while also speaking clearly about the need to fight and counter radicalism wherever it rears its ugly head. Beware those who would rather not, for “they are of the sort who, discovering a viper in the bed of their child, would place the first call to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.” Hitchens again.
