Voat financial status submitted by Atko to announcements

This is a great idea and I would gladly pay for it. You could charge 1.00 a month to remove the ads and most would do it, which would help greatly with the costs of the site.

TIL that despite the NFL making more than $9 billion annually, pays its CEO more than $30 million a year, 68% of NFL stadium construction costs since 1923 coming from taxpayer money. submitted by skymod to TIL

If you could dupe your neighbor into building you a house, even though you made 100K plus a year, would you do it? Convince your neighbor that by buying and building your house, and then giving it to you, the neighborhood values would go up and everyone would win. You know you would take the free house.

Sure, I still think the NFL is evil, but they only do it because they can get away with it. Your fight is not with the NFL. Your fight is with the local government that taxes you to do it.

Edit: Some folks think I am actually talking about convincing my neighbor to build me a house and not seeing the analogy in my statement. I assure you, none of my neighbors where hurt in the making of this post.

Stacey Dash rips Jada Pinkett Smith - Black actors must earn Oscars because segregation is over submitted by gramman74 to whatever

While I hate fox news and Dash in general I have to agree with the point. You cannot want equality and voluntarily segregate yourself through these programs. Just like in the Navy. They have an engineer of the month and a black engineer of the month. I used to debate with a black LT all the time. Do you want to be the best black engineer or the best engineer? If the answer is engineer, you need to get rid of the black engineer award.

NC man holds hit-and-run suspect at gunpoint until police arrive submitted by toobaditworks to news

LonElliott 8 points -7 points (+1|-8) ago

That should be and is illegal. Private citizens do not have the power to detain someone which is what he did. Never mind the fact that he didn't see the guy get out of the car nor could identify the driver which is why he had to ask. Police officers have very strict criteria that need to be met before the can detain someone. Any time you do not allow someone to leave, they are considered detained by the law and this can be something as simple as the person "feels" like they are being detained. So now we are going to have idiots with guns detaining folks because they think its the right thing to do. Go to Walmart. Look at those folks. Now think, do I want these folks holding people at gun point because they think they are doing something right? I don't know about you, but I do not.

Cotton could have and should have called 911, said what he saw, followed the person and kept him within eye sight until the cops arrived. Now in court, any decent lawyer will shred this because no one can prove who was actually driving the car since no one saw who got out of the car and Cotton had to ask him if he was driving the car. I know it sounds like he did something right, but he did not.

Obama's executive order on gun control is unconstitutional submitted by crankypants15 to news

LonElliott 8 points -5 points (+3|-8) ago

What? A paid shill for the fox news channel supports their narrative..... I am shocked. For every person that claims it is illegal for him to do it, there will be someone that claims its legal for him to do it. This is exactly why we have a Supreme Court. They will decide on this just like the Affordable Care Act. That is how the system should work. I am not getting into whether or not I support the executive action, or even Obama as a president. Regardless of that, the Supreme Court will decide if its legal or not and that is how it should be.

Moms Demand is the worst. submitted by Rellik88 to guns

I think women with guns stopping rape 100% of the time is not even close to accurate. I am willing to bet I can dig up some articles of women that where raped because they were disarmed or surprised and could not get to their gun. I am not supporting the images crappy logic, nor am I supporting your crappy logic.
