Without knowing an individual or who they are, and what they believe. Your not only putting yourself at risk but whomever tags along with you.

In this day and age, come on, that is not a smart thing to do. But I feel very bad for the family. You never want road rage to escalate into something bad, which seems to happen a lot as of late.

Your definition might be different than mine.
So you should never own gun....you are mad, means you are a hot head.....

You can only have 1 definition...

You cannot make a definition after the fact....really..

Don't know what it is about being behind the wheel. At the grocery store, people almost ram each other with their carts, and smile and say sorry. Put the same person behind the wheel and they are shaking their fists at you red faced.

No matter how much indignation one suffers, one might do well by remembering it only takes a small man to pull a big trigger.

Or perhaps, as Mark Twain might say:

"Never argue with idiots they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience"

Oh, so true....so true.....
I would give your post five stars had it not contained the derogatory remark about blondes (as if being blonde was even relevant.)

Sounds like you shouldn't own a gun.

Your so right. And hate to say this, but I do happen to know some hot heads behind their wheels. When I drive, I simple am very focus on who is behind me, next to me, and on the sides of me. When I drive, always with my sunglasses. I have been almost hit with people texting, almost had a girl, next to me almost plow into the passanger side of my car, if my husband did not have fast reflexes the car would have hit us.

You get pissed, say a few words if you must, who would not, but in this day and age, sex of an individual age, race does not seem to matter, you let it go.

I will say this, some people friggin do not know how to drive.

There's a big difference between a heat of the moment incident and an incident that was re-escalated after the fact. If her son had killed this man, it would have been pre-meditated and therefore capital murder.

IMO, the mother had an anger problem. She could not simply shake off an unpleasant but benign situation and go on with her life.
