    I'm not an expert, but I haven't heard of this suggestion before, so I'll throw it out there. What about a lottery, like they do for turkey hunting licenses here in MN? The club could reserve "x"...

    I think it definitely changes things. It is my opinion that the officers probably thought their lives were in danger. However, the facts prove different. Perhaps more training is in order. I...

    They might be more able to tolerate the heat and cold if they stay outdoors, but I'm not convinced it's a deal breaker.

    Mainly, because you get to stay inside at night and you don't have...

    You aren't seriously claiming that health insurance is now more affordable for most Americans than before ACA are you? Because even Obama doesn't make that claim anymore.
