Tyler, I said in a earlier post a week ago that I didn't hate anyone. I lied. I hate these crooked, lying , traitorous politicians. I hate them real good and always have.  By the way, is that GM corn or Heirloom corn?

Hate your neighbors and family that don't vote. Hate the people that sit on their ass and don't get involved.  Hate all those voters who plug into the mainstream media to get their daily instructions.  They are the ones that are the cause for running this country into the ground!  When we, the voters, stopped holding elected officials accountable and forcing them to be OUR representatives we now are receiving our rewards.  It only took 100 years to unwind this country, but it is here.   


Good night, and good luck!

As I have stated around here before, as you say also, it took a hundred years to get into this mess. So now , it will take a hundred years to get out of it. I look upon the horizon, I don't see too many who are willing to make such sacrifices. Our children have been taught to be selfish and self serving. There was a time in this country when we had at thing called front porches. This was a place where the family would go sit in front of the house, after dinner etc and talk. Now we have back porches, because we need our "privacy" Heck, many people don't even know their own neighbors and yet somehow someway, someone is supposed to build a coalition based upon this mindset. How can this be? I think this nation is overwith.

Oh yeh, the same guy who tried to rape his massage therapist and the same guy who got a Nobel peace prize for his bogus global warming theories. Yeh I remember his fat ass. Let us not forget how he used to call anybody and everybody from the VP's office trying to get them to give campaign contributions to the democrap party. Yeh he is a real peace of work. He too, belongs dangling at the end of a chinese made rope, the fat fuck.

It was said he was like his own little mafia , him and his extended family. He stepped on his dick , when he went against the Israelis and wanted to support the Palestinians. Then all of a sudden not long after this, there are riots in the streets. Imagine that. There are many jewish Islamic converts and Berbers living in North Africa. Names,  faces and religious philosophies  do not mean much. It is what a man believes on the inside that matters and money talks , there as here and bullshit walks and as here, who has the money.

Tucson Tragedy Prompts Renewed Calls For Gun Control

Click here to vote in this week's poll.

This week, the NRA and countless Americans offered prayers and condolences for those killed and wounded during the senseless assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Yet while those of us who defend the Second Amendment were respecting the heartache of the people of Tucson and waiting to learn the full facts of the case, anti-gun activists were renewing their push for more gun control laws.  ("In the wake of these kind of incidents, the trick is to move quickly," the Violence Policy Center's Kristen Rand told MSNBC.)

Rand and other gun ban advocates were quick to push several schemes.

The most widely publicized is the proposal by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) to re-impose the 1994 ban on new manufacture of ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and to criminalize the transfer of existing magazines between law-abiding gun owners.  These magazines are standard equipment for self-defense handguns and other firearms owned by tens of millions of Americans.  Law-abiding private citizens choose them for many reasons, including the same reason police officers do: to improve their odds in defensive situations.

Also, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) proposed to ban possession of firearms within 1,000 feet of the President, Vice President, Members of Congress or federal judges.  Obviously, this proposal would be ignored by anyone who intends to harm a government official.  But it would impose extraordinary burdens on honest gun owners, creating potentially hundreds of square miles of roving "gun free" areas throughout the United States. 
There's no question that the debate over gun control will continue after the Tucson attack.  Please rest assured that the NRA will, as always, stand front and center in defense of the rights of gun owners.  And, as always, watch your NRA-ILA alerts for the latest news and calls to action on these critical issues.

Who really needs clips holding 10 or more rounds of ammunition? It's not a sporting arm for hunting, after all.  Time to be reasonable.

I support the second amendment, because I believe in whatever freedom we still have.  If you want to burry 10,000 rounds of ammo in your backyard like a feral, undomesticated RamboSquirrel, go for it.  Our quest for freedom from oppression is more important than any tragedy that might arise from it.  

For me, though, the problem with the second amendment are the wannabe-Rambo, Gunsmoke-douch-bags that are so often attached to the cause.  You know the ones I'm talking about: they always cowboy-up the rhetoric until the gun becomes a metaphor for their swinging dicks. Sometimes you don't even need to hear them to spot them - look for one or more of the following: flat-top, mustache and/or goatee, cowboy boots/hat, mullet, musky cologne, spitin' tobacco, oversized vehicle, barbed-wire tattoos and a preoccupation with Pamela Anderson (that's a must!). 

There's very little in the Constitution that elicits more ego-charged rhetoric than the second amendment; it's like halloween for their fragile, power-starved egos. We don't retreat, we reload! Fuck n' A! Saddle up the Camaros, baby!

These idiots are no different than those goofy Christians who babble in tongues and give Christianity a bad image.  Same with so many of the second amendment wing nuts who can't have a legitimate conversation without dressing up their ego into a tough-guy costume first.  They fit in the same box of lunacy.

Talk to me about Christ or freedom, and I'll listen and engage with civil discourse. Talk about faggots, effeminate little wimps, how God needs money or the upcoming rapture, and I'll just dismiss you as someone exercising their right to be a fucking moron.

What the fuck is wrong with you? 

Which of your so-called second amendment lover characteristics ""flat-top, mustache and/or goatee, cowboy boots/hat, mullet, musky cologne, spitin' tobacco, oversized vehicle, barbed-wire tattoos and a preoccupation with Pamela Anderson (that's a must!)." is associated with Jared Loughner?

Which of your characteristics "flat-top, mustache and/or goatee, cowboy boots/hat, mullet, musky cologne, spitin' tobacco, oversized vehicle, barbed-wire tattoos and a preoccupation with Pamela Anderson (that's a must!)" tied to the gun toters in Chicago that killed 217 people during the first half of 2010. 

You hate because your an elitist.  You hate because you think are smarter than they are and you think you know better than them.  Mostly you hate because they hate your liberal bullshit, have no fear of you, and have no qualm sticking a middle finger in your face to tell you to FUCK OFF and there is nothing you can do about it....except bash them in blogs and pray someday "daddy" government squashes them.

Who really needs a semi-automatic rifle?  They're fast repeaters and unnecessary for skilled marksman.  Time to be reasonable.

Who really needs a KA-BAR?  It's designed for fighting and even has a "blood groove."  Time to be reasonable.

Who really needs knives with points at all?  They're good for stabbing and unnecessary for most kitchen applications.  Time to be reasonable.

Who really needs a nine pound sledge hammer?  This isn't the Wild West and we aren't building any railroads.  Time to be reasonable.

Who really needs your uninformed and useless opinion on what is or isn't reasonable, anyway?

Give em hell lady!

They're not "liberals" they're progressives (socialists)...a liberal...a classical liberal, would never empower the state to take from a citizen.


The failed, vacuous logic of the progressive mind is simply this.

They agree, that the Bill of Rights is a document for all citizens outlining what the government >>>cannot do<<< against the citizen.

So far, so good.

Except for the Second Amendment...which they somehow strain to make the argument that it (and only it, the Second Amendment) applies to the government, the state.

There is no other of the remaining nine Amendment's where they try to make this do so would incite full scale rebellion.

This is where the progressive/socialist lie of "militia" falls flat on it's face.

To directly answer your question, I do, because I WANT them (they're MAGAZINES, not "clips").  Either your head is so far up your ass or you want to control me, and either way, you are part of the problem.  I recall recently about a Marine on leave that was out with his girlfriend at a movie and was attacked by dozens of feral punks.  What better way to defend yourself than with a semi-auto (preferrably a .45, but a 9mm does generally have more capacity) and several high capacity magazines?  This situation is oh-so typical of the deflect-the-blame mentality of the Left.  Instead of infringing upon my rights to defend myself in the most efficient manner possible, why not just hold scum like this accountable for their actions and put this guy at the end of a short rope on a tall tree within a month?  That's the message we need to be sending!

.....infringing upon my rights to defend myself in the most efficient manner possible

You (and your violence-mongering ego) completely miss the most salient point of the second amendment.  In fact, in doing so, you are no different than the Left who tries to use the statistically irrelevant event from last weekend to bolster their anti-gun propaganda.  The Left's point from last weekend and your post above both reflect a "head up ass" mentality.  

The second amendment is about freedom from oppression and freedom from a government taking your rights.  

Gun rights should never be questioned when a retard goes ape-shit, nor should it be validated by another statistically irrelevant scenario regarding punks in a parking lot. The second amendment is NOT about being able to turn a movie-theatre parking lot into a blood-soaked, urban warfare video game with chunks of carnage hanging from the rafters because you want some punks to pay the ultimate price for their transgressions against you. 

I don't want retards taking my rights, nor do I want blood-lusting wing-nuts protecting them.

The light at the end of the tunnel is when this whole bogus "reality" collapses. At that point, there will be no more subsidies, and the corruption which goes with it should also cease. I just hope it is us who inherit the new system, not the fascists of today. Here's to the Chinese cutting their losses and dumping treasuries en masse.

No vote is also a vote.  You are opting out and disagreeing with a rigged system.  If all the sheeple stayed home on election day the politicians would soon realize that no one supports the ponzi.  More importantly, the people would realize they are not alone, that the rest of the citizens are also fed up.  The state is very good at creating a problem, orchestrating a reaction, the offering up a solution (I read this somewhere but I don't recall where but credit is due tothe person who saw this).  It is the only way for the useless mafia known as the state to stay relevant.

I have never really thought about it, since on the surface it seems so benign, but just thinking about it, what would it possibly really mean?  Just think about it. If not one person voted, for anything, the shock to the system would be so great, that this one simple act, similar to every person taking their money out of the banks, would in fact, collapse the system. Imagine that.

I tend towards HPD's view, at least on the national elections. Why bother picking between tweedle dumb and tweedle dumber?  Talk about a waste of gas, heading to the polls is an egregious waste of gasoline. Look at the last election: Obama (bought and paid for by Goldman Sachs) and Biden, or McCain (ZZZzzzzz) and the psycho, and dumb as a stump, Palin.  Great choice. If it were a restaurant you'd have already dissed it on the online reviews.
