Would it be inappropriate to ask where the 16 year old's parents were when she was given the key to Stallone's hotel room?

Well, Democrats got what they wanted. Hyper sensitive society where gag (or not), you're guilty before all the facts are out.

These are the fires Takei and Al Franken have been stoking for 12 months in an attempt to burn Trump, but looks like they ended up burning themselves.

Fuck em.

Pat.net was doing fine until somebody became President and some posters lost their shit.

When people are butthurt, they get more butthurt easily. It's not unusual.

I simply ignore flounced anon users. Added 3 in 48 hours, maybe less. Butthurt people could ignore users they don't like.

With ignore, I don't see any reason why somebody would leave the forum over a poster or two.

People are peddling butthurt conspiracy theories because of butthurt, when you don't agree or call them out for the nutty, evidence-free BS it is, you're uncivil and a horrible person.

I still like a "reddit" style idea, with categories. Maybe 5 of the most popular threads, then the top 5 categories on the landing page.

I'm off to pee on some hookers before bed, nighty night all.

A Red Bluff Daily News crime log from February 2017 reported: “Kevin Janson Neal: 43, of Corning was arrested Tuesday in the 6900 block of Bobcat Lane in Rancho Tehama. He was booked into Tehama County Jail on the charges of assault with deadly weapon not firearm or force, great bodily injury likely, battery on person, crime against elder or dependent adult, discharge firearm with gross negligence and false imprisonment with violence. Bail was $160,000.”

Neal’s neighbor told the news media early on that his roommate was shot and that the gunman was a felon named Kevin. The witness, Brian Flint, “said he received a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen too,” reported The Record Searchlight, quoting him as saying, “The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines. We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

A past history of felonies and the neighbors had called police to report him shooting behind his house. This tragedy is on the hands of the local cops.

You realize that all of these efforts to return to civility is a reaction


It's a reaction?? Are you saying you can't help and stop yourself from attacking all the other posters here? You've been on a tear for the last 6 days.

Why can't you stop being uncivil?

Here's a novel concept, why not set an example and become extremely civil in all your posts and lead by example.

Or, you can live in the past and chase some sort of past boogieman member that's not even listed in the Users list. Do you want to live in the past or move forward to the future?

Everything is still OK for discussion, just don't attack the other users personally.

Property Tax - capped at $10k?
MI limited to $500k on new purchases as interest rates are predictably going to rise? Wow...

What's good about this plan for middle class families again???


What if you're a renter, which many middle class families are. Does the increase to $24K standard deduction help them?

Also, how many middle class families buy $500K+ houses? Do you know what the median house price is in the US?

this plan is shitty.


Which one? There are two different versions. The House version or the Senate version?

That's why I said above:

Sniper says
The majority of people interviewed really don't understand these new proposals yet. They just are running with "sound bites" from their favorite MSM site.


Most people are knee jerking opinions, based on few facts, they're only hearing a part of the plan, the part that the news they are listening to is telling them.

Remember, EVERY news source has an agenda, what agenda is YOURS pushing?

"In other words, the rent argument only works if the renter invests the rental savings rather than consuming it."

Yeah, tell that to the tattooed, forebrain-less, oxycontin and Jack swilling, monster truck riding masses.

Are you arguing with yourself or just trying to make a point? It's not quite right to me.


Just trying to get ahead of the normal gun haters here that will tell us "If we only closed gun show loopholes, this shooting wouldn't have happened", or the typical "we need to ban military assault weapons", it's for the children.

someone should have asked him that before he abandoned the forum. no one did or cared or gave one fuck. Same goes for Dan and a lot of other people who arent around now.


Iwog and Dan both made their positions clear before they left. The failure to stop sniper from coming back, the takeover of patrick.net by alt right trolls, the leaving of long time posters over the past few years, and the inability to have constructive dialogs are the reasons they left. Whether or not you agree with their assessment of patrick.net, this site has lost a lot of moderates from both sides of the aisle over the past few years, so there is at least some merit to their criticism. It's a shame that they left because the two of them combined produced most of the content that isn't outright propaganda.

Single payer.


Single payer would be an easier step from where we are than a free market. This is the unfortunate reality, and why critics have blamed Obamacare authors of strategizing towards single payer.

I recently started a new career as a health insurance broker. ALL the financially well off and healthy clients are finding ACA alternatives. The ACA is left with the dregs of society, pushing the costs higher.

I thought the financial system was ripe for corruption. That is NOTHING compared to healthcare. Everywhere you look its one absurd motive after another. Ever wonder why a medicaid recipient gets sent to 25 different specialists when diagnosed w cancer? Its because every bill is covered by uncle sam and the specialists all scratch each others' back by referring the patient to their services. The entire system is broken

Trump contributed to their demise, while Obama contributed to their rise.


Tnat's pure bullshit. ISIS was a product of bush, plain and simple. It's been well researched and documented time and time again. Wilful ignorance isn't the same as factual information. . ISIS was being set back steadily town by town before trump took office.


Ignorance seems to be your choice. Obama let them march right in.

U.S. troop withdrawal let Islamic State enter Iraq, military leaders say.

A number of former and current military leaders who were in power when all U.S. troops left Iraq are saying today that the complete exit left the door open for the Islamic State’s land grab.

The assessment comes from the Army chief of staff, a former Marine commandant, a former U.S. Central Command chief, a former defense secretary and, privately, from the officer now running the war in Iraq against the Islamic State, also known as ISIL and ISIS.

The military officials say a residual American air-and-land combat force could have steeled Iraqi Security Forces and blunted the Islamic State’s invasion of northern and western Iraq last winter and spring.

There is no such thing as a house for $500K in some parts of the county,


You need to get out and see the rest of the country, prices in the real world aren't like CA. The median house price in the US is $315K.

What do you do?


Move out of CA, you'll be a lot happier and have more money.

Goran_K says
I just don’t understand the aversion to firearms and their usage.


I don't either, they are just a piece of hardware, not much different to a power drill or power saw in my book. Just another tool in the toolbox.

I respect someone who doesn't like firearms, everyone has that personal choice. The issue is these people want to ban OTHERS from having them, since they don't like them. I have a BIG issue with that.

Hell, my wife really doesn't like my "hobby" and wants nothing to do with my firearms, but she respects my interest, and just looks the other way. She doesn't even know where my keys or combos to my safes are or couldn't tell you what I own.

Goran_K says
Unless you believe everything the MSM lies about with regards to firearms.


That's where the issue is, the "haters" believe the false narratives and lies pushed by the liberal media and feel NO One should be able to own a firearm or protect themselves.

Goran_K says
It’s a perfectly safe hobby and if Uncle Sam ever transformed into Comrade Sam, they are a huge deterrent to tyranny. Win-win!

Please explain. Not everyone has read the proposed tax changes in detail.

WookieMan says
I'm confused by this as well. $500/mo NET income? So it's costing you $6,000 in NET income a year? I don't know your tax bracket, but suppose it's 25%, you're saying the tax plan will cost you $24,000 gross. That's what the math comes out to if you're saying $500/mo. The tax plan hurts me, but I'm not sure the scenario where it wipes out $24k in gross income.


I agree, I'd like to see his math too.

This reminds me of eight years ago, when the right wingers were rabid with Obama Derangement Syndrome, relentlessly foaming at the mouth over the Foreign born Muslin Usurper that was squatting in the White House. Remember how uncivil they were about it?
