Carlson described coping with public harassment during a recent appearance on National Review’s The Jamie Weinstein Show.
“I can’t really go to a lot of restaurants anymore because I get yelled at,” Carlson said. “I don’t feel threatened, but having someone scream,‘F*** you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal.”
"people kill people, guns don't kill people"12 people killed in a mass shooting in California. The customary GOP/NRA thoughts and prayers are coming forthwith.
it would seem that you condone mobs descending on the homes of journalists and haranguing their family membersJournalists, like official Trump campaigner Sean Hannity?
Right, but people with guns kill a lot more people than, say, people with asparagus."people kill people, guns don't kill people"12 people killed in a mass shooting in California. The customary GOP/NRA thoughts and prayers are coming forthwith.
If you are trying to insinuate something, I have an alibi.RIP
California has some of the nation's most stringent gun control laws
This was an attack on a "college country night" at a bar in Thousand Oaks, with the colleges in question being Pepperdine and California Lutheran, both of which are Christian schools
Presumably the murderer had an antipathy towards both country music and Christians

Given that the variant McLeod (tool) was invented in 1905 by the eponymous US Forest Service Ranger McLeod, at the Sierra National Forest, it would indeed be ironic if the Finns use them but the US Forest Service no longer doesA fire rake is a wildland fire fighting tool. A fire rake has a wooden or fiberglass handle with a rake head consisting of four sharp, serrated, triangular steel blades. It is used to rake a fire break with the sharp teeth, enabling it to reach fire in undergrowth in addition to loose surface debris. A McLeod, which is sometimes called a rake hoe, is a similar tool whose rake portion looks more like a steel rake but with sharp edges on the teeth. The teeth of the more traditional fire rake which resemble the teeth of a great white shark allow it to penetrate deeper into the undergrowth when necessary. The preference for one implement over the other is somewhat subjective.
A fire fighter will rake burning material back into the (black) area already burned, moving the fire away from the fuel ahead of it to create a fire break. The burning material is left to burn itself out away from the edge of the fire line, or another fire fighter with a fire flapper will smother it if required. The tool will cut through any undergrowth that may be burning and overturn some soil, further assisting in creating a fire break, thus smothering fire. This can reduce the temperature of burning materials below their threshold of ignition.
As for cleaning forests, doing things such as removing dead trees helps prevent forest fires.The McLeod was designed to rake fire lines with the teeth and cut branches and sod with the sharpened hoe edge
