Yeah, never turn your back on them and run, you appear just like prey to them.

I am retracting my complaint. I am still skeptic regarding Ms. Stinchfield abilities but have taken a more open look at some past events with both wild and domestic animals and the situations in the past which could have gone very wrong regarding the predator species of wild animals. Of these situation events I had encountered, nearly all of them could have been fatal but for the empathy and calmness of speaking to the animal's in a low, calm tone and conveying my intentions not to be hostile but to be left alone to continue my hike, walk, or even run, I was able to pass a mountain lion, red-tail fox and even a bear on the same trail that we had met on without any incident. There may be some truth or reasoning of animal / human empathy and non-verbal communication that is plausible; otherwise I may not be writing this today.

At present I'm a Federal Government contractor working for a Federal Government Agency, at least until the Fed dismisses the 80K employees and their support personnel roughly 800K employees by the end of this 2013. I had the pleasure of finding out that the average Government contractor makes just under .105% of the total contract amount; the Company takes the rest and pays its management and (if) shareholders. This is why the belief that the contractor makes more than the actual government employee when in reality the lack of job security is one major problem facing contractor employees but not the companies that hire the workers who actually have to do the work the owner/operators bargain for. The Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer.

"Klinger openly derided Huffington, describing the Texas millionaire as seeking “to buy” a Senate seat by spending $75 million of his own money and being “totally devoid of intelligence.”", now this is common practice for the ultra-rich to either buy a seat in Congress or buy a candidate for Congress; the man was ahead of his time.

Right On Target, Billclausen."With an Armed person the level of Force used is only one level higher than the Threat". A security officer's primary job is to Observe and Report, a Force Protection Officer is to Observe, Report and Protect but not to Arrest. Camera's are excellent observant tools but lack the ability to repel a hostile invasion of a Threat.

Due to the Pollen Producer here in the DC Metro area, my Doctor prescribed an respirator to wear during the really high periods I chose this one to cover the itchy eyes and filter the Pollen and other contaminates; http://www.esafetysupplies.com/Surviv...

Sorry Mr. Saifi, some of us were on the Front line when 9-11 happened, we stayed at our Posts when the order came down that we were attacked and by a religion that has been stigmatized as a War religion (J hadj / Holy war). Most of us have been conditioned to view those in face-coverings as potential enemies of the State, who plot to blow themselves up in crowded events, sporting games, parades and yes Marathon's. Many of us are very targets that terrorists focus on, we serve our Country, fight our countries wars, or just because we are born in this country we wear targets on our bodies that those who represent Islam focus their sights on; we are American's. This is why Islam and those who practice this religion are viewed with ongoing suspicion, apprehension and contempt for living in OUR country and continue to attack us on our own ground. Our latest local TERRORIST just became a citizen a year ago only to attack those who are NOT Muslims and to promote more hate, we American's are only reacting to this terror attack. This is why "Muslims were the first to be targeted as the culprits of this heinous crime"; it was one of your own.

Starshine, like every other so-called "Milestone", is whole lot of hoopla for nothing. Adolescences, Preteen, 16, 18, 30, 40, 50, and so on is just numbers or overrated points of someone other than ourselves telling us we are to be excited over a date or event but those with expendable $$$ can go crazy and do the stupid of what the rest can't but other than the misgivings of mid-life crisis, it's just another day in your life, live it or don't!

I use to live at 530 Sussex Ct, Goleta, Ca. 93117 from 1975-1995, Lake Los Carneros was my personal stomping ground, every trail, the foot bridge I watched being built, the Goleta Depot I watched brought over from the R & R tracks to it's present spot and the Museum with the HO model trains were all put in. I was in the Goleta Valley Parade, more times than I can remember, either riding in my Father Studebaker, on an Old Wagon pulled by horses, a float or walking with the K of C Color Corp. I remember the Lemon Festival in the Stow House backyard, the Steam Engines or the Blacksmith pounding-out horse shoes for the Clydesdale's in the History center. I miss that place out here in Northern Virginia.
