  1. The trailer. I'd like to know what the cure is.
  2. I won't be voting for any of those cheap prostitutes and Koch whores.
  3. You should think about putting together a u tube video. Just saying. (traffic) I'll sign, and post your link of the 2 forums I visit regularly.
  4. So what if he owns a gun? Lots of gun owners know that there should be strict laws on what type of guns should be owned by the general public, not to mention the fact that nobody is saying they want all guns confiscated. I disagree. the millions of gun owners are not going to protect our Constitutional rights. If that were true, what's taking them so long? It seems the only Constitutional right they are interested in, is keeping their guns, while making the rest of us less safe.
  5. I have a present for you. So don't say I never gave you anything. LOL!
  6. We don't need state militias since we have our armed forces. When they wrote the Constitution, there was no military. Get rid of our armed forces, and I'll sit down and have a discussion about forming state militias.
  7. Great topic Rob! When I'm not so dog tired, I'll tell you about my ex Republican boyfriend, and how my Mother lost a friend of 35 years over politics. I'll stop back by after I get some zzzzzzzzz!
  8. I hate it when that happens. I got in the habit of typing my responses on notepad, then when I'm finished, just do the cut n paste, especially for a long response. It works. I should get in the habit of doing that again. I'm going to read your post and MrPatriots, but I will respond tomorrow. I am dog tired. I got up at 5am, and it's now 3:30 am, however, today is my Friday! Yay! I'll stop in tomorrow to answer this thread.
  9. I don't doubt that you are a good person, even if you did do some bad things. There are times when good people do bad things. I've done things I'm not proud of, but I'm still a very good person. And we do have sort of a similar background, with our religious upbringing, btw. I think you've replaced religion with Libertarianism. It's easy to over do it, and pick and choose the parts that make you feel good, so just be careful.
  10. Okay, I have to ask, how tyrannical does the Government need to be before you justify revolting? Also, Since the Government does have nukes, and all the weapons that go with the military, how do you figure some revolutionaries with a small arsenal will be able to take that on? Since we do have nukes, should Iran also be allowed to have nukes? There have been plenty of politicians who not only do not protect and defend our Constitution, but have gone completely against it. Why is it nothing is said until it becomes about gun rights? If this country isn't smart enough to even vote them out, I doubt a few people with guns is going to scare them into behaving. Again, there's been other areas where our politicians have shredded the Constitution lately, but when I only hear about the 2nd Amendment and guns, it makes me wonder how sincere activist for gun rights really are.
  11. Well, at least now we can go back to saying WE'RE # 1, WE'RE # 1, WE'RE # 1.USA! USA! USA! LOL! I can't say I didn't enjoy smoking pot in high school, because I sure did have fun. My senior year is still one big blur LOL! Oh, I wish I could have fun with it like I did before, but it just makes me sleepy now, and I've got too many other things to do. I suppose I just outgrew it. That said, it's completely ridiculous that it's not legal in every state. Geez, it's a natural weed for Christ sakes. Nobody ever gets hurt from a pot smoker. Alcohol on the other hand....well, just ask a battered wife about her drunk husband, or a family member who's lost someone due to a drunk driver. It should be the other way around. Pot should be legal, and alcohol illegal. They could tax pot and use the money for education. .
  12. 1. There were approximately 8,583 people murdered by firearms in 2011. What about their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Or does the right to life and liberty only apply to gun owners? The definition of liberty is "The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life." So far, I've only heard you comment about liberty and freedom for you, with no concern for the other 300 and something million citizens you live with. When people can't send their children to school for fear they will be murdered at school, how is that called freedom? Our state of being free within a society has become "free to live in fear" We are free to live in fear due to lack of restrictions..We are being oppressed by lack of restrictions. 2. When your "liberty" gives easy access to guns, and they go in the hands of thieves, rapists, and murderers, I can call foul, and say I've had enough of your liberty, and your freedom is NOT free. 3. You are ignoring the 8,583 people who were murdered, and don't get to have life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness. What are your suggestions for the year 2013, so we don't have another 8,583 that lose the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness? Your repeated use of the words "life, liberty, and freedom" have little value when someone else is murdered before you can spit those 3 words out. Just saying. I'll pull out my Japan stats tomorrow. I'm getting sleepy. LOL!
  13. That Big Brother/Sister program is excellent. My son had a Big Brother for a year, when he was younger. I think it really helped him. I tried to act like a male figure by playing catch, taking him fishing, burping loud and having him pull my finger, but it's just not the same. LOL! I bet that would be rewarding for you too. I have been thinking about helping out with Habitat for Humanity. I called them yesterday and they are sending the paper work. I didn't initially call them to do charity, I called them because a friend told me they sell paint at around half price, and I'm getting ready to paint my house. It just so happens that they have 2 5 gallon buckets of the color I want. Well, I got on their website, watched a video of a single mom, who had been on the waiting list, waiting on a home for 3 years and when they gave her the keys, she couldn't stop crying...and neither could I. Then I thought about it, at thought what a great way to meet nice people, get a workout, and learn something about home building or remodeling. I'm guess I'm doing it partly for selfish reasons. But who cares if its also helping someone. That's the way I see it. I'm sure broken homes do lead to crime/violence, but you know what else causes crime and violence? Poverty. There, I said it, and I know I sound like a broken record. However, it is true. If you mix broken homes & poverty, there's a better chance there will also be crime. So here's what I've been thinking about, and you tell me what you think. We are one of the highest rates for incarceration in the world. Many are doing serious time for non-violent drug offenses. When these non-violent drug users and dealers get out of prison, where are they going to go to work? Who hires felons? Even low paying Walmart does background checks. A lot of companies are not only doing background checks, but credit checks as well. Say for example, a guy in his late teens or early twenties starts selling drugs, either to pay for his habit or make a living or both. He makes enough money and doesn't have to work..He gets busted for the 2nd or 3rd time in his 30's, and is now on his way to prison. When he gets out, he's given a list of companies that will hire felons. He must have a job as part of his parole. The problem is, he's not only a felon, but he has no experience because he made a living selling drugs. You can't put that on your resume. If he doesn't have connections, no friends or family to help him get a decent job, the jobs on the list mostly start out at $8 an hour. I guess I don't need to tell you or anyone else, that $8 an hour job will barely pay for an all bills paid efficiency, and on top of that, I do believe they have to pay for being on parole. So the guy is broke, but works full time. Now he runs into an old friend who happens to still be dealing. He's got a daily supply of cash, drugs, merchandise from people willing to trade a big screen for dope, and women. Drug dealers have as many women as rock stars. Here he is working full time for $8 an hour, and no money left out of his check, all it takes is one phone call to old friend, and he's got cash, drugs, women, and merchandise. Which one do you think he'll pick? I think even the ones who say they are going to quit and are sincere, get out and find it's not as easy as they thought, so they go right back to doing what they know. My plan is to see if there is any organization out there that helps non-violent drug offenders get decent jobs, in order to prevent them from going right back to doing what they were doing, and eventually right back in prison. I'm going to do some research and present it to my social justice group at church. Once a month they go over ideas that will help the community. If there is no non-profit organization helping, I'd like to start one. FYI: There are 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population in this country. I believe that's higher than any other country. If it isn't higher, we're very close to the top. I'm open for ideas. Wow, that was long winded, and sorry for getting off topic.
  14. Kent State The rest of the world sat idly by while we killed thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians. We're still killing innocent civilians with our drones. We've propped up dictators all over the world and no one has stopped us. I think the point OldBarn was trying to make, I could be wrong, but I took that as an example of why a few nut cases cannot compete with the Government/military, and they will not overthrow the Government/military, with their small arsenal.
  15. So, you're against voting them out, and prefer shooting them? Is that democracy? I don't like them either, but, um, shooting a politician because you don't like their policies is called "murder". It's against the law, and you'd go to jail for the rest of your life, and rightly so. Please tell me I didn't have to tell you that. Do you really think our elected conservatives are that bad? I mean, I agree they are crazier than snot on a slug, but you don't think that's a little paranoid? Geez, I say we get busy and vote those SOB's out of office next election, to prevent a blood bath. Are you with me?
