Post subject: When is the best time to learn the forward loop?

isobars says: "I'm not suggesting the OP fugheddaboutit. It really is "only water", so (probably) the worst he can do is ... snap a board. Why after all the experts say this is not going to happen the almighty still insists it is a possibility? Well if we`re including ANYTHING that might happen we should include the caveat that as you land on your butt on your first successful loop it IS possible that a sturgeon may be surfacing nose first at the same time and accidentally butt rape you. Your call whether you still want to try loops. You`ve been warned."

more isobars:

Nothing personal, you idiots (including the non-blacks who support such total bullshit), but how about a free FUCK YOU, you greedy bastards? You're living in the best environment on the planet to take the bull by the horns LEGITIMATELY and succeed. Do something with that opportunity rather than lying in the streets, blaming and harming and murdering the cops who protect your asses better than they protect mine in many cities, and saying I'm guilty of something my ancestors may have done (I have no idea, because it's totally irrelevant, who or what my ancestors were or did.) Get a freaking job, invent something special, and consider WORKING for life's rewards, just like everybody else had to do.

And even though I was born and raised in rural Alabama in the '40s, '50s and '60s, including finishing high school in Montgomery in 1961, I haven't been back there in decades. In just one year in Montgomery and a trip through it a few years later, I personally saw a nighttime KKK march through a neighborhood, MLK's subsequent march into Montgomery from Selma, and Negroes/colored people (those were the preferred term for them back then) forcing whites off the downtown sidewalks on a daily basis. But Rebel flags? Very rare back then.

But none of that poses the same threat as today's demands such as I reprinted above. BLM now has much more power than either U.S. political party, and that should scare the hell out of every human being within our borders. Far too many gullible, misinformed idiots of all colors actually believe, or just want the cash fallout of, their claims and demands. Stack the violent actions of the criminal, murderous, pillaging, arsonist anarchists like Antifa who simply want to overthrow the government by force on the backs of the legitimate protesters, and our nation could be devastated irreparably if these insane, spineless, liberal mayors and governors are allowed to transform "Protect and Serve" to "Run and Hide", strip our police forces of everything but batons and firearms, leave citizens on their own to defend themselves from violence, then try to take even that capability away from them.

Then there's the most asinine, insane, nation-destroying demand of all, straight from the BLM platform splattered in large, bold print over two full pages of our newspaper recently: WE DEMAND NOT ONLY REPARATIONS BUT FREE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING FREE COLLEGE, FREE FOOD, FREE HOUSING, FREE HEALTHCARE, AND FREE ET.AL.

And while you're at it, stop implying your lives matter more than every non-black's. ALL lives matter, at least until their voluntary, deliberate behavior proves otherwise. (Let's face it: whose life matters and contributes more to society ... the shopkeeper or the piece of garbage who beats the shopkeeper into oblivion and torches his shop for freaking kicks?)

Oh, Jesus Christ, mac ... I haven't even looked at your no-doubt-stupid post, but the title alone reinforces our conclusion made years ago that forums serve only one purpose for you: stir up the porta potty, add still more shit to it, and pour it into the parking lot to see how much trouble and hatred you can generate among a group who should be friends.

I agree with Dr. Laura's tirade: OF COURSE it's the woman's right to choose ... WHETHER TO SPREAD HER LEGS. Beyond that point biology takes over. Neither she nor Obama has the right to let a viable newborn die on the slab just because Mommy Dearest no longer wants it.

ultra right wing wacko judge says until convicted you cannot take guns away from criminals. So I guess he should allow defendants to have guns in his courtroom.

Federal judge in Texas rules that disarming those under protective orders violates Second Amendment

A Texas federal judge declared it was unconstitutional to disarm someone who is under a protective order, setting into motion a likely legal fight over who can possess firearms -- a move that advocates say could have wide-ranging impacts on gun access across the country.

U.S. District Judge David Counts, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, ruled last week that banning those under a protective order from possessing a gun infringes on their Second Amendment rights.

Judges who deem people a danger to family members or intimate partners can take the extra step to issue a protective order requiring people to relinquish the guns they already have. Federal law currently prohibits domestic abusers who are charged with a felony, misdemeanor or are under a protective order from possessing a gun.

The ruling comes months after a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case on the Second Amendment, the effects of which, legal experts say, are just beginning to be felt.

This June, the high court's ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association vs. Bruen, written by Justice Clarence Thomas, struck down the state's concealed carry law and held that courts going forward should uphold gun restrictions only if there is a tradition of them in U.S. history.

The case involves Litsson Antonio Perez-Gallan, who was stopped at a border checkpoint in Presidio while carrying a firearm. Law enforcement found Perez-Gallan had a restraining order issued against him, in which case federal law prohibits the possession of a firearm.

Counts ruled that the federal government's disarming of Perez-Gallan did not sufficiently consider the historical context of domestic abuse law when revoking his Second Amendment rights. In September, the same judge ruled that it's unconstitutional to disarm somebody who has been indicted but hasn't been convicted yet. He said he found no such history for limiting access to guns for those charged but not convicted of felony crimes, though he acknowledged his search was "not exhaustive."

Counts' most recent opinion also pointed to the lack of historical record of domestic abuse law that limits access to firearms.

Eric Ruben, an assistant professor of law at the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, said the recent opinions from Counts are a direct result of the Supreme Court's June ruling.

"The court said that the way that you've got to decide the constitutionality of modern-day gun laws ... is not by looking at modern policy considerations, but rather looking at historical laws and trying to analogize specific legal traditions from a very different time and place," Ruben said.

But the landscape around domestic violence and firearms has changed dramatically since the late 1700s when the Second Amendment was ratified.

Not only have firearms become much more deadly than the muzzle-loaded guns used in that era, but views about gender roles and domestic violence have developed significantly, Ruben said.

The opinion does not bar the government from continuing to prosecute cases in Texas or elsewhere, but Ruben anticipates the federal government will appeal the case. If the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sides with Counts' opinion, Ruben said the loosening of gun restrictions would have wide-ranging implications for gun access in the region.

The effort in Texas to expand protections for domestic abuse victims from gun violence has long faced obstacles. A small number of communities in the state have established programs to transfer firearms from people under a protective order to law enforcement, but these resource-intensive programs depend on federal and state laws that ban these individuals from possessing guns.

Nicole Golden, the executive director of Texas Gun Sense, said it's clear why the federal government bans several groups from possessing guns, but the court's decision goes against the crisis of gun violence and its threats to victims of domestic abuse.

A domestic violence victim's risk of death is five times higher if their abuser has access to a firearm, according to federal data.

"It's simply dangerous to our public safety, for our women, our families and our police officers who often are at risk when they go into a domestic violence situation," Golden said.

when good people stay silent the right wing are the only ones heard.
