Obama "curtailed" the program after it served him well for 6 years, and only because it made for bad AP photos in Ferguson. Another government program with broad bipartisan support that is never brought up in public.

Broad bipartisan support because it looks good when you're running for re-election.  A lot of us remember the 1968 Democratic Convention and the beat-down the police (in a supposedly liberal city) gave the protesters, reporters, and anybody else that happened to be in the neighborhood.  Since weapons are only acquired to be used, how much worse would that be now?

This is the other side of the coin from when all the liberals in California wanted strict gun control laws while hiring armed body guards.  In this case, since gun control laws are being struck down, the Gov-Reps want more powerful police forces to deal with it.  Also known as the "Shit, Niggers got AK47s too!" rule.

I wondered if you had floated off. Are you safely away from the flooding?

300 miles, thanks.  We're closer to Oklahoma City, OK than we are to Corpus Christi.

I played golf yesterday afternoon.

I must be confused. I thought you were in suburban Houston. Perhaps you said you used to live there, and I got it mixed up.

I'm glad you're safe in any case.

Thanks, much appreciated. 

Yes, Houston and Katy 1979 - 1991, Austin 1992, Dallas area 1993 - Present.  Not included, about six years in Mobile, AL and Columbia, SC during the early part of the 21st Century.

Damn, son, you should think about living somewhere pretty the next time you move.

Thank you, George, I know all them places but didn't have the heart to say so. And I'm sure most of the bucolic, blue highway hamlets I fondly remember have long since surrendered to fuckwit blight. I looked up Chillicothe, OH earlier evening and appears a Wallyworld Super Center ate half of downtown.

Says the person who lives in the burned out blight that is San Antonio.  Actually, North Austin in 1992 was quite beautiful before the urban sprawl.  Dallas has about 100 golf courses within 30 minutes of my house, although I don't actually live in Dallas, but a nice little 'burb to the northwest.  My parent's hometown, Morristown TN, had the best views.  You could see the Smoky Mountains on three sides of the city.  Lived there for a couple of years as a young kid, and visited every year until I grew up.

I love living here.  It's not as pretty as my NC homeland but it's a very green city and there are a lot of flowers in the Spring.
'Course, I did relocate here from the arid, stony hellscape that is DFW, so in contrast to that, this place is a paradise.
(You say you live in the NE of DFW?  I do remember Grapevine and environs being remarkably pretty for the area.)

Yeah, Carrollton.  Our whole city is a greenbelt.

Do you have any idea how much ribbing the cop will get at the station if a perp steals their cruiser? Steps *had* to be taken.

Someone just opened a cat cafe here in Norfolk.  They said the red tape was immense.  It's an animals in contact with food thing.

It looks like they rented two suites, one where you buy your tea and crullers, and the other where the cats reside. They are very much not connected. If you buy refreshment and so happen to end up in the cat space with your food no one will tell you to get out. 

They have these rules for a reason.  I don't want to go to a restaurant where the chef brings his dog to the kitchen everyday, but when you are fully informed, whatever.

But that's DC, the epicenter of the Limousine Liberal, whose motto is "We know what's best for you". That they get denied due to a law against a victim-less crime causes me no end of schadenfreude.

Gotta defend yo' turf.

Sources say it started when two special ops officers from the 12th Precinct were operating a "push off" on Andover near Seven Mile. That is when two undercover officers pretend to be dope dealers, waiting for eager customers to approach, and then arrest potential buyers and seize their vehicles.

But this time, instead of customers, special ops officers from the 11th Precinct showed up. Not realizing they were fellow officers, they ordered the other undercover officers to the ground.

FOX 2 is told the rest of the special ops team from the 12th Precinct showed up, and officers began raiding a house in the 19300 block of Andover. But instead of fighting crime, officers from both precincts began fighting with each other.
