[Bearing Arms] If you’re ever involved in a shooting, you can find yourself in the midst of a very traumatic experience. Taking a human life can be devastating all on its own, even in the case of self-defense, but then things can get ugly. In far too many places, prosecutors can go after the person acting in self-defense and make them prove their case in court. It’s a costly, invasive process that’s probably more traumatizing than the shooting itself. Hence, Stand Your Ground laws protecting that right to self-defense.
Those measures don’t prevent civil cases, though, and those can be just as bad. Even worse, there’s a lower burden of proof required in a civil case, meaning the chances of being bankrupt over the case‐and not just from legal expenses‐increases exponentially.
Now, an Indiana law going into effect this month seeks to put an end to that risk.
They call it "blanket liability" or some such thing. It's about $400. per year if I remember correctly. It only covers you if you're in the "right" however (legal use, threat of bodily injury, death or dismemberment, etc). If you go on a neighborhood rampage, or open up from the porch on a Jehovah Witness Tower Team, you're SOL.
[BBC] A Republican candidate for Mississippi governor has refused to be interviewed by a female reporter unless she brings a male colleague with her.
Larrison Campbell, 40, said she had asked to shadow Robert Foster on a 15-hour "ride-a-long" on his campaign, but was denied because of her sex.
Mr Foster said he was acting out of precaution and he did not want to raise any suspicions about his marriage.
"This is my truck, and in my truck we go by my rules," he said on CNN.
During the CNN interview with Campbell and Mr Foster on Thursday, the 36-year-old gubernatorial candidate cited his religion and faith, arguing he had made a vow to his wife to not be alone with someone of the opposite sex.
He cited the late Christian evangelist Billy Graham, who had said he would not spend time alone with any woman who was not his wife, as well as Vice-President Mike Pence, who has said he will not eat alone with a woman other than his wife.
You know what would be really cool? Fred & Co. posting a list of banned words & phrases so I could make an incredibly salient point here, as I had something happen to me like this yesterday. I removed every profanity (no links) and yet it is rejected time and time again.
I ran into a similar situation yesterday. I was about to be left alone in an office withy myself and a black female employee (newbie) around 6:00 PM, as she and a(nother) semi-trusted female (prefers other women) employee were about to leave. I quickly started to shut down my computer when the employee who prefers other women (whom I've been with the only other female employee many times in the past) said 'she'll be back for her stuff and then she'll leave', closest words to that effect. I was too busy responding to a potentially difficult situation, so when they left I wrote on a piece of paper '7/11/2019, 6:00 PM EDT' and showed it to both HDTV cameras in the office while they were out. The other one comes back up a few minutes later, then she splits 12 minutes later with us exchanging brief pleasantries. I did not budge from my chair until 6:35, well within the view of both cameras. I took a one minute leak, then split just after 7:00.
Normally the president of the company is there (we're tight) and it's not a problem, but this time around he was not, so I covered my ass, which is required nowadays. I will not put myself in that position to have someone take a shot at me.
I do not know this other woman, therefore I do not trust her. Anyone thinking otherwise is a fool / buffoon.
Figuring out why a post was rejected is a good puzzle game that I always look forward to when it happens. My advice is copy your comment text to the clipboard before you post so you don't have to re-type it. As for the words in question, I don't think they are all that hard to suss out and in this age of SJW meltdowns Fred is just protecting his work and all of us as well.

Basically words related to sex and gambling. Although "poozlicious" seems to be OK.
Come on Raj, the woman on woman descriptor is only allow when used to reflect victimhood or virtuosity.

YES!, Billy Graham always had his motel room checked before he entered. They tried to set him up. A male can no longer be seen alone anywhere with a female. This includes all professions. Especially those known to have potential to win large sums of money or to gain some political advantage.
Every politician should include a chaperone when meeting with any reporter. Including recording the interview yourself. The technology today combined with dishonest media can create fake news very easily.
This is stupid. Why not install an a/v recording setup in your study and record every meeting. Can be done in a car too. Chaperone...pfft ! Casuistic superfluity.
If people become paranoid like this, afraid to meet people, to communicate one on one, even to face women, the mad dykes have got their victory. A man with unassailable integrity doesn't have to bother with these encumbrances. Even if I go to prison for a false charge, hated by other men, fear should not dictate my attitudes. God will take care of the rest.
