Once, while waiting in the interminable Walmart checkout line, I heard a commotion and saw a store employee chasing a presumed shoplifter out of the store.

I’ve been leaving a WalMart and seen the side door in the entryway open and a couple of security guys grab the guy in front of me and hustle them into the office.

You mentioned people paying for loaded shopping carts with EBT cards. I don't see stealing mentioned. I didn't mention loaded shopping carts.

To answer other posts, in some places security will apprehend you, in many places they are instructed not to. I did security a few years ago and was instructed to report to the police. Owner wanted none of us getting injured.

Most security guards (guard card) must abide by the same laws as every other citizen. There are no special powers given. Same with bouncers. They have no legal right to assault anyone, they just get away with it. I know because I hired and worked with many at my brother's nightclub and know the laws, at least in my area.

Anyways, Kyle.....I think he is now on minute 14 of his 15.

(The local Walmart and an oft-robbed/looted Target have both closed their doors for good, deciding that their exposure to such rampant thievery was not worthwhile for them).

I mentioned EBT and shopping carts in comparison to a previous person claiming that people were shoplifting loaded carts.

Try these


You see gangs of people in stores doing this now simultaneously. All the employees can do is hope none of them are violent and watch them steal.


What this has to do with Kyle I don't know.
Who can blame gangs of people robbing stores when Kyle Rittenhouse gets away with murdering peaceful protesters? [/moronic liberal]

Ongoing Adventures of Captain Kyle:

He recently appeared on the Jenna Ellis Show, and complained that he has called President Biden, who has not responded. Kyle concludes that shows how much of a man the President of the United States is, that he won't sit down and talk with Kyle on demand.

This kid is far too full of himself.

This kind of hyperbole obscures the crap Rittenhouse perpetrated and the freak show of adulation. Do you do it for your own benefit or do you think it works on libruls too?

A few small updates from our favorite shoot-em-up weirdo.

From:NY Daily News
Teen gunman Kyle Rittenhouse claimed he would be attending Texas A&M University...a Texas A&M representative said, “He has not been admitted as a student this summer or fall.”....

So he had to adjust his claim....

Rittenhouse went on Twitter to clarify he would be attending “a feeder school” in the Blinn College District and hopes to attend Texas A&M next year.

And Ladies... how would you like a piece of this ultimate manly stud?

From: Yahoo
Kyle Rittenhouse was brought on stage at a right-wing conference for women and introduced as the "kind of man you should want to be attracted to." Rittenhouse made an appearance at Turning Point USA's Young Women's Leadership Summit...Rittenhouse also bragged about his sex life on a podcast, where he made a joke about "single patriotic moms" taking his virginity.

I wonder if dating sites will have to start having a field where people can enter the number of people shot.

By now it should be obvious that any chance that Rittenhouse might have shown any sort of remorse for his actions is, or used the experience as a growth experience, is a no-go.

Man, took him until he was 17-18 to lose the V-tag, eh?

The pathetic thing is shooting those people was probably the best thing to happen to this little douche.

Question: How flexible are universities like Texas A&M with their admissions? Do they base admissions on raw numbers, or can they look at a candidates background and say "Nope, that situation would be far too toxic".

(I am thinking of the recent documentary "spider-man: no way home" where MIT rejected peter Parker after his identity was revealed.) Even a university in Texas would be hesitant to bring in a right-wing racist nutcase who's going to lead to wide-scale protests and disruptions for others on campus.

Of course, even if he does get in, lying (or exaggerating) about his college status is not the way to rebuild his reputation.

Texas A&M is a public university. MIT is a private one. Presumably, if Rittenhouse can meet the academic requirements Texas A&M would have to admit him, though if enough people are admitted ahead of him he may have to be put on a wait list.

I guess we should be thankful that no pr0n producer has tried to do a parody of that.

Heck, if the whole school thing/neo-nazi spokesman doesn't work out for Kyle, he can get a job as a pr0n star.

I don't know, but I'd imagine porn .gifs aren't big money makers, and given what we know about Rittenhouse I'd bet 3-5 seconds is an above average performance.

The image of multiple Cougars pouncing on Kyle simultaneously (he did use the plural "moms" when taking his virginity) is putting me right off my lunch. I don't even want to ask what they may have strapped on.

If pounding cougar ass at 18 years old, and getting made a fool of nationally because he lies perpetually is living his best life and turning tragedy into triumph then I've never been happier to not be Kyle Rittenhouse lol.

I was sleeping with women my own age when I was 18 and I didn't even have to shoot people to do it. It's weird you're acting like that's an achievement.

Then again, he probably has to get cougar ass because no one his own age wants anything to do with him.

Of course, even if he does get in, lying (or exaggerating) about his college status is not the way to rebuild his reputation.
They do auto admissions for Texas HS students who qualify. Certain class rank or test score, don’t remember the specifics. For out of state there may be more discretion at play.

But, TAMU is the most conservative public university in Texas. He would likely be welcomed by the community, for the most part.

Whatever "triumph" he is feeling now, it will likely be short lived.

Eventually his fame among the right wing fade over time.

He seems to have an inability to function among the non-MAGAchud (casual lies about his schooling, and an oversized ego, means he is unlikely to find much acceptance in normal society.)

I suspect Rittenhouse will probably go the same way as Zimmerman... a brief period of fame, followed by various legal problems (as he hasn't learned how to react in society) and desperate attempts to appear relevant.

TAMU may be the most conservative university in one of the most conservative states. But, its still a university.

I am sure there are plenty of MAGAchud on campus who will welcome Rittenhouse with open arms. But there are probably at least a few moderates and/or progressives who will be less than thrilled to be in the same class as a violent weirdo of his type.

If he gets in, I assume the university will need to be prepared for regular protests outside whatever class he is attending.

Doesn't "should want to be attracted to" mean that they aren't actually?

A pair of reluctant MAGA MILF Cougars with white pointy hoods and strap-ons who took his virginity as an adult. And he talks about this out loud.

There was series of Palin spoof pr0n. I'm sure they can dust off the same actress or get another passible Palin clone, the "script" writes itself. Probably make a ton of money selling it the moral majority crowd, the white nationalists, incels, and all the other GOP supporters.

And "losing virginity" can mean one of a few things, ahem.

I predict he gets arrested for something within a year from today.

I never went to school there, but on my visits it never felt like a community that was all that welcoming to the type of people who would be upset by KyKy being there. And the few who may be upset are unlikely to make a big deal about it.
