Had it not been 98 degrees we both would have walked to the car. I truthfully did not inconvenience anyone by where I was parked. He did however by standing in the middle of the street yelling at me.

    The store security was inside talking to cashiers while my wife got robbed in the supermarket parking lot.

    You could carry this stuff.

    Not a fan of capsaicin. The wind can cause you to have a bad day. Electricity is the best bet.

    I must have missed something in the OP. I didn't read anything about a "thug". Some "get-off-my-lawn" type asshole said some mean words. Did I miss something?

    And people are talking about killing him? WTF.

    You have to be smart enough to not be down wind.

    Get off my lawn assholes have a tendency to become very irate and irrational when you don't get off their lawn. I am an old man, he was irate and irrational over my five minute parking. I had no idea what he would have been capable of but I really didn't want to find out. I don't believe being prepared to defend yourself against the worst case scenario when something like this happens is a bad thing. Thinking of shooting him was way down the list of things I would do and from a legal stand point certainly should be. However, if someone 30 years younger than you, 100 lbs heavier than you suddenly, out of nowhere begins to berate you for loading your car in the wrong place just what would you do?

    Already responded. This would be my first choice.

    I presume big gobs like him have a yellow streak but you can not place 100% faith in that. I am very competent in self defence so I know what I want to do if he gets in range. The best defence is speaking to the assailant while also worked out in your head what you will do. You want his move to give you that lawful right to self defence.
    All I want is his hand/wrist and arm. I focus on his free hand. Mostly these people point at you with an extended arm. As he walks at me I grab his wrist and pull him towards me, using his own forward momentum to drop him to the ground... never letting go of his wrist. Then wrap his arm up his back.It is very effective because YOU KNOW what you are going to do and he does not know.

    The elderly, children, in-between. Too many people in the U.S., and I specifically don't call them Americans, are totally self-centered and their reason for existing is to keep other in line. I liked Colorado when I moved there because the culture was "mind your own business" but that went out the window with Californians and other leftists moving in.

    I live in Mexico and my problems are with gringos. I have a dog that lives with me in my apartment. We walk twice a day and Diego is on a leash, always. I've had three woman come up to me and ask if Diego was intact, alter, or castrated. A fourth walked up and apparently could see his nuts and demanded to know why he hadn't been castrated. "He's my dog, lady, not your husband."

    Every single person who has yelled at me for not wearing a mask when I'm walking my dog has been a woman from the U.S. One demanded to know where my mask was and I said, "Up your ass." Another wiggled her mask and said, "Do you know what this is?" "A codpiece?" I hope she looked up codpiece when she got home.

    I'm older than Dr. Felix and I liked the U.S. better when people were courteous and had free speech.

    When I was 18 I got robbed by a man in Louisville, Kentucky. He had a knife. I was very drunk. I was working for $1 an hour in a Redhead Division of Brunswick Corporation factory. He demanded my money and I said, "Okay, but if I give you all my money I'll have to call somebody because I don't live in Louisville. I'll have to tell them what happened, they'll make me call the police and I'll get in trouble for drinking. Leave me enough to get home and I'll figure we're even. He took all my money and said, "What do you need to get home?" "$1.25. I live in Shelbyville and need some gas." He counted out $1.25 and went on his way." I don't think it would go down like that today. Obama and his gang have got the hatred hyped too much for that.

    When I did my time in the service I spent a year on a small island in the Aleutian Islands. We all went crazy but when you live in a crazy place you don't realize how crazy it is till you leave. That's how I felt when I left that island and when I left the U.S. thirty-two years later.

    America isn't a place. It's people. Living in Mexico I feel like I've come home to America.
