  1. "Yet somehow we did survive the 70's." And most will survive today as well.
  2. "Without a legally purchased military-style rifle, he would've just been a guy standing in a bar. That's the fault of the FBI, which they even admitted today" There are a lot of rumors about the feds trying to be careful of offending islam, and in doing so,not pushing forward with leads and investigations. It could have been much worse if he had blown himself up with one of those explosive vest packed with ball bearings that seem to be very popular with jihadist martyr types these days. Guns are not very good tools for mass killing when compared to explosives. Check out the Bath Michigan school bombing,and then imagine the death toll if the perps second bomb had detonated. Oklahoma city is another recent example of home built explosives effectiveness at destruction. So how do you stop suicide bombers? What happens when IED's start showing up at bus stops,playgrounds,hospitals,ect.....? Remember how bad it was in northern Ireland when the IRA was having it's hay day,and they were not suicide bombers,being catholic and what not. Bombs have always been the greatest threat in my opinion. At least you have a chance to fight back against a gunman,but how do you fight back against explosions and shrapnel when you are in the blast zone?
  3. The Washington post/progressive liberal propaganda machine.
  4. You are either for freedom or you are not... it is a pretty simple concept. Word!
  5. There should be no victimless crimes. You should be able to eat yourself to death,drink yourself to death,smoke yourself to death,starve yourself to death,run with scissors,skydive,big wave surf,base jump,ect..... I can't understand how anybody,especially extreme sports enthusiast would consider legislating against an individuals freedoms to live there lives anyway they wish, as long as no other individuals are hurt directly by such lifestyle decisions.
  6. Billy busted my balls. I normally have a cast iron gut but after the second day of the course I had the worst heartburn I've ever had. He took this sport very seriously and always stressed safety above all else. When you passed a Billy Rhodes course you were as prepared as you could be for the real world of AFF. I liked him a lot,and had a huge respect for him,but hey I'm just an old logger from Washington state. Blue skies Billy!
  7. He should be buried alive with porkchops or drowned in pigs blood!
  8. I dislike conservitards as much as I dislike libertards. I'm a libertarian!
  9. I edited my original post as you will see. Jerry Ziefman did not fire her,but he did accuse her of lying and, unethical behavior and, disregard for the US constitution, like trying to deny tricky Dicky of his constitutional rights to legal counsel. Ziefman also stated that he would never give Hillary a job nor recommend her for any job because of her unethical behavior.
  10. Her lies and unethical behavior go back at least as far as the Watergate investigation. She was accusesd of lying and unethical behavior by Jerry Ziefman who was head of the Watergate investigation committee. Jerry Ziefman said after the investigation that he would neither give her a job nor a recommendation to get another job.
  11. There is no reasoning with the unreasonable. It's like you're talking to a 9 year old with his fingers stuck in his ears. Well actually I still think its possible john actually is a 9 year old I love it when someone tells me that I am more likely to be shot with my own gun than if I didn't own a gun. No shit! Since you can't be shot with your own gun if you do not own a gun. It is not possible to convince them that you are far more likely to be harmed or killed by a bad guy if you are unarmed. As I have stated several times before,I've stopped bad guys in their tracks with my gun,even when they had a gun as well and,I've never had to fire one round.

  13. kallend wrote: . I hope he wins the nomination. I can only assume you think hillary is a better candidate. Personally I think the only thing she deserves is her own wheelchair in an old folks home. As far as the GOP nomination goes...I'm all for Rand Paul/Trey Gowdy. Being a libertarian myself I agree that Rand is the best choice.
  14. >You're full of historical shit. How many times are these revisionist historians going to keep saying this nonsense in Speaker's Corner? How many times do I have to give these brain surgeons a history lesson? You sound like a left wing propagandist who reverts to name calling and attempts at belittling all who oppose their ideology. The dixiecrats were still democrats,and the republicans were against voter literacy laws. Voter literacy laws were intended to prevent poor minorities from being able to vote,which is racist.
  15. >It was known as the Southern Strategy... and the GOP inherited all those good ole boy "conservatives" to the utter chagrin of the likes of Goldwater and other GOP conservatives. Not buying it. JFK was killed November 22 1963. The democrats were still pushing voter literacy laws in 1965,while republicans fought against the unfair laws that were intended to suppress minorities from voting. The democrats openly fought against equality for all until the late sixties. It seems the democrats then flip flopped publically and started giving minorities free stuff because they needed the minority votes. Of course there is still bigotry in the USA,but not anywhere near what it was in the sixties. In fact the USA is probably one of the least bigoted countries in the world at this point in time,and everyone has equality by law here,yet the liberals keep touting themselves as the champions in the war against inequality. You will always have some level of bigotry by individuals,or groups no matter where you are in the world,but by law in the USA it is illegal for any public entity to discriminate. Places like iran,pakistan,dubai,russia,and many other countries give no such equality under law. As far as individuals,or private organizations are concerned,they have the right to be bigoted, and other citizens have the right to shun said bigots. This is the price of freedom of speech,and freedom of speech is the biggest part of the foundation of freedom. The democrats attack freedom of speech more than anyone else by deeming words they do not like as politically incorrect. Democrats are also the best at taking things that are said out of context,and twisting somebody's words to make them appear to be bigoted. I find it very funny when liberals get caught in their hypocrisy,like the present administration paying women less than their male counterparts,all while they tout themselves as the champions of equality for women. Both the republicans and the democrats are disgraceful,but the democrats are the number one hypocrites.
  16. >The fatal flaw in your argument is that you don't seem to know the difference between race baiting and real racism. Ding ding ding ding! Hit it right on the head.
  17. >Mmm yeah... sorry I lived that history... and I suppose the sheet wearin conservatives are not pushing racial politics any more either. Some are more honest than others and are a tad more upfront about it... They certainly care... I thought the KKK was tied to southern democrats back in the the years of the fight for equal rights. I was born in 1963 and remember listening to the adults talking politics in the late sixties and early seventies,and the democrats sure seemed racist compared to the republicans.
  18. >My belief is that the Party’s did not change. The tactics changed. They went from Pro-Slavery to Pro-Segregation to Pro-Entitlement, all of which results in nothing beneficial for the prosperity of an individual and is considered by many of my ilk, “Plantation Politics”. Yep! If you actually look at the historical facts they differ vastly from the propaganda that the liberals spew. The liberals have to deny real historical facts in order to get anyone to drink the ideological koolaid they mix up. I am not a republican either,but am a libertarian.
  19. >Gee I did not realize that those two officers in Houston were Semitic.... do you know something the rest of the world does not??? You brought up the whole religion thing with the remark about treating human beings as just that,and then you inferred that it would be too liberal an idea for Christians. I simply tried to remind you to include the other two big religions that have also been known for miss treatment of people. As far as police go,there are good ones and bad ones,just like Christians,jews,muslims,and humans in general. I really doubt all the bad cops are regular church going types anymore than the good ones are. I find it funny though that you single out the Christians for lacking respect for human life when most recently radical islam has been taking the cake in that area. Just so you know,I have no religion. I am an INFIDEL!
  20. >How about a starting point of treating other human beings as just that.. I know ...I know... that would be too liberal for all those good "Christians" Don't forget about all those good muslims,and jews.
  21. >How long they kept using revolvers is a good example (some still carry them). Very good example of the importance of reliability. The revolver is an older,and more simple design compared to sem iauto pistols,and the high level of reliability that they afford still makes them popular with many people,especially when using the more powerful cartridges that lessen the need for more capacity that is often found in the semi autos that use the more common but far weaker rounds like 9mm,40 S&W, or 45acp. The downside of the more powerful cartridges common for use in revolvers is the increased recoil,and over penetration potential that goes with increased muzzle velocity. My biggest problem though is that having a weapon that could be deactivated by the powers that be would defeat the main reason for having the 2nd amendment,since the 2nd as we should all know is not just to defend citizens from criminals, or to hunt,but to give the people the ability to resist a tyrannical government,or to repel foreign invaders.
  22. >However, I have short shrift with those that refuse to leave when I say, 'No thanks.' That sometimes get my blood a little warm. Now that would definitely be a rude intrusion,and would demand a stern response which most likely,and understandingly so,could involve some profanity. From what I've seen I can't see you getting to mean with anyone unless they really deserved it,you just don't impress me as the angry short fused type.
  23. >Because some people believe the right to privacy includes/implies the right to be left alone. So knocking on the door of your house without a no solicitation,or no trespass sign on a city street equals invasion of your privacy? You do not have to open the door,and they are not breaking in so how are they invading your privacy? If the outside of your front door,and your porch in a city dwelling are so private,then why can't you sit on your porch naked screaming profanity while children walk by on their way home from school,or at anytime as far as that goes? Windows on the other hand are not normal points of entry,like front porches that use sidewalks to direct other humans to the front door which usually has a doorbell or other noise making device to alert you to visitors at the front door.I could see where knocking on,or peering through windows would be invasion of privacy, since there is no good reason to be there, as it is not a normal point of entry for visitors. As far as I know,unless you have a locked gate,or a no tresspass sign, someone knocking on your door is not a crime.
  24. >Biblical story of creation - and that's going to drive some of the more intelligent people away from that religion. I agree 100% I was raised Christian and can remember being punished for asking about the teachings vs scientific facts. I was also punished for pointing out some of the contradictions in the bible. I do not believe,but I still respect those who do, as long as they do not go westboro Baptist on me.
