A Colorado Cub Scout who said he was kicked out of his den for asking a lawmaker too tough of a question is getting some big name support.

Ames Mayfield said he was told he could no longer participate in Scouts with his current group after a Scout activity involving a question-and-answer session with Colorado State Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins.

“He was supposed to research and ask a question that impacts our community,” his mother Lori Mayfield said.

When it was Ames’ turn, he asked: “An issue that I’m concerned about is common sense gun control. I was shocked that you co-sponsored a bill to allow domestic violence offender to continue to own a gun. … Why on Earth would you want somebody who beats their wife to have access to a gun?”

Mayfield said the den leaders thought the question was disrespectful.

Somebody ought to explain to the den leaders that if you can’t handle a little confrontation from a Boy Scout then you’re too much of a snowflake to serve in the senate.

Presidential Executive Order Amending Executive Order 13223

Posted on October 20th, 2017 at 22:26 by John Sinteur in category: News

It’s friday, distraction time… so:

[Executive order]

This EO allows the federal government to recall into service any retired member of the Regular Army, Regular Navy, Regular Air Force, or RegularMarine Corps.

It essentially means he thinks he’s about to go to war and wants to make sure no military members who have left lately, or who may leave when their term is up during the war, can walk away. Unlike Bush, who was forcing extensions of service on soldiers who were already serving, Trump is granting himself the ability to recall anyone who’s ever served in the past.

Big war coming.

Elderly passenger tosses coins into plane’s engine, grounding flight at China airport

She was flying Lucky Air, but that wasn’t enough for an elderly Chinese woman who tossed coins at the jet’s engine to wish for a safe flight, prompting authorities to detain her and ground the flight.

The incident occurred on Wednesday (Oct 19) at the airport in the city of Anqing in eastern China’s Anhui province, according to authorities, and was at least the second such report this year of a safety scare caused by a coin-tossing elderly Chinese.

Is it me, or is the world getting more stupid by the day?
