Greg Gutfeld rules

He does. Read his HuffingtonPost FAQ post if you doubt my judgment. Moneyshot: 5. What does HP offer people that other blogs don't? Wisdom. Read any post, take the opposing point of view, and you arrive at common sense. An example:On the blog, gossip journalist Richard Bradley displays his usual humility by criticizing London cops. He wrote that the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes was due to "a collection of small [but significant] police mistakes, lack of training, and heightened anxiety. In other words, unjustifiable." Here is the opposite: "if you're in THE UK illegally with an expired visa and forged documents, and you're in the subway a week or so after a terrorist attack that happened to also occur in the subway, don't ignore police orders and run. If you do, police will think you're involved in something far more serious than an immigration violation. We all feel terrible, but people who are living among terrorists are willing to risk one small tragedy (a shooting) over a mass tragedy (a bombing)." Just by reversing the logic, you suddenly understand the huge dilemma all people are dealing with everyday, on the subway. And you also scare people like Richard Bradley into minding their own business. (Note: this also works amazingly with Trey Ellis's posts. When he says divorce is great because he can bang his girlfriend whenever he wants, what he's really saying is "weak, self-centered people should not get married or reproduce"). Hehehehehehe Read the whole thing.

I feel really sorry for the family of this guy but to blame the police for his shooting is not right. What if they had let him go and he was a bomber? The police would be the guilty party no matter what they did.

Love the comment on the guy who likes divorce, I couldn't agree with you more.

If your asking me I'm 34. Sorry in my writing seems a bit simple but I've got a headcold and I'm a bit fogged up.
