    I have forever been blown away by the big cats…and a typical house cat is almost exactly the same by DNA…my little barn cat used to sleep way up in a maple tree in the back, paws hanging over a crook in the branches, just like a jaguar…I’d go out there and look through the branches and there she was…she might get up and stretch, hop to another limb and settle in for another snooze…the exact same fluid movement and agility

    Yow.

    And that’s not even the most expensive one. The 22k is the low end starter model.

    From the linked article.

    The “Snow” Ashera costs $65,000 and its price is justified because the background color is white, rather than the more common brown color of the standard Ashera.

    The most expensive is the “Royal” Ashera that costs $125,000. The Royal Ashera is the world’s most rare domestic cat, says Lifestyle Pets. This version of the Ashera has a cream background, but its spots and stripes are “tiger orange” instead of plain black.

    back in the 70’s I lived in Denver and picked up a tiny cat for free, a male…I named him Orbit and he was a ferocious kitten that grew up to be this huge, poor mannered ally cat that was never neutered…he was a savage, just brutal to play with, he had a real mean streak…but I loved him to pieces…he’d jump up on the kitchen counter, sneaky like at night and I’d shoo him off but he’d do it anyway just to piss me off I think…so I got this spay bottle with water and shot him with it and he’d leap away down the dark hallway…at one point I heard him on the counter sniffing around, grabbed my bottle thing, rushed over to get a shot and squirt!…got him, but he just stared at me, so I shot him again and he turned sideways, lowered his head and snarled at me…like in the movies I put my arm out straight and advanced on him shooting as fast as I could pull the lever…a semi-automatic squirt bottle…I pasted that fucker, he was soaked but didn’t back down…at point blank range he moved to the edge of the counter and just fell off to the floor and walked away like I was not worth his trouble…that was a hell of a cat, he lived 19 years

    now the Black crazy guy who pushes a Korean in front of the subway is charged with a regular homicide, BUT the crazy Latina woman who pushes the Indian guy in front of the subway is charged with a hate crime… why? because she thought he was Muslim.

    I was thinking along the same lines.

    The detective probably asked her,…

    Detective: ‘Er…, what religion did you think this guy belonged to?’

    As though that is a relevant question when looking for motive. Unless one is fishing for a per-determined modis.

    Woman: ‘He might have been a muslim.’

    you miss the point… she confessed and got a harsher charge than the guy who did basically the same crime but made up a story that the victim who was 20+ yrs older, 60 lbs lighter, and almost a foot shorter attacked him.

    “She told police that she pushed a Muslim off the train tracks. She said, ‘I’ve hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 since they put down the Twin Towers. I have been beating them up since.”

    (…)

    The incoherent suspect was mumbling as cops questioned her, and at one point asked where the R train was, the sources added.

    Her relatives called cops last night after seeing her on the news, law-enforcement sources said.

    Menendez could have a criminal background — and possibly a history of mental health issues, the sources said. She has recently been living in homeless shelters.

    The woman is both evil and stupid. Hindus had diddly-squat to do with 9/11, and even Indo-Pak muslims were only peripherally involved; mostly as cheerleaders after the fact.

    @ lobo91:

    One of my Dad’s friends (also his trainer) has a business here in the Burgh’ that’s going like gangbusters.

    He started out just doing personal self-defense, but added firearms recently.

    He recently also published a piece in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in reaction to the Newtown shooting.

    No more Newtowns: Here’s how we can better predict, prevent and respond to attacks on schools

    As a security professional, I wasn’t surprised by the news reports that began arriving on my cellphone last Friday morning. After all, it’s my job to think about and plan for incidents like the one in Newtown. But as a parent, I was heartsick.

    It was impossible to look at the photographs of those children standing outside the school, staring at the chaos unfolding around them, and not imagine the faces of my own kids. Impossible not to think about how the parents of those young victims and survivors would cope with a tragedy certain to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

    ….

    Few events in recent years have done more than the Newtown tragedy to stir people’s emotions — not least my own. But I refuse to allow my longing for a world where malevolent people and deadly weapons don’t exist to cloud my thinking about security. Making our schools safer — by better predicting, better preventing and better responding to violence — is a long-term process, not a one-time fix.

    H. L. Mencken once observed: “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong.”

    We owe it both to the young victims of Newtown and to our own kids not to be the first to raise our hands, but to get the answer right.

    102 | December 29, 2012 9:18 pm

    @ Bumr50:

    Also from the piece:

    . Educators often ask me: “But what do I do if mine is the first class hit?” That’s why training in confrontation management, gun disarming and active shooter response should be mandatory in a post-Newtown world. While teachers aren’t “first responders” in the sense of having law-enforcement training, they inevitably are the initial responders.

    H. L. Mencken once observed: “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong.”

    Ain’t that the truth, some years ago I was working in a business that received a credible bomb threat… “they” evacuated us and told us to line up along the side of the building. As I was putting distance between my self and the building (and the plate glass windows) my supervisor started yelling at me” there is a bomb, where do you think you are you going?!” (face palm)

    At least Hitler was honest about his intentions. He just had all the guns confiscated.

    This crap from Feinstein changes the definition of a Class III weapon to include anything she thought looked scary in a picture. I’m supposed to be fingerprinted and pay the ATF $200 for the privelege of keeping my Mini-14, and get written permission to take it across state lines. I can’t sell it, and when I die, it gets confiscated by the ATF.
