Living in Troubled Times.
"A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within."
In the last video, I doubt the clip of Obama talking is authentic. Not that there is any question he thinks this, I just don't believe he would actually come right out and say it. It's still a great clip, especially the bumbling fool at the beginning and her explanation of how magazines will disappear because they are "bullets."
Obama says things behind closed doors that would curl your toes. I have no doubt he said something like this to his left wing cronies or U.N. stooges. Either way, we know the U.N. wants to disarm us and only Congress stands in the way of the small arms treaty that Kerry has already signed. The NRA is not my first choice. I prefer Gun Owners of America, although they do not have the war chest of the NRA. The bottom line is that all American citizens must uphold and practice our Constitutional rights, especially the first and second amendments. Stop letting our politicians push us around and impose stealth gun control laws on us. Vote them out. Stand up for your rights. Support all organizations like the NRA.
I belonged to Gun Owners of America for a long time, but my dues lapsed and I never heard from them, so I let it slide. I should look them up and send them a check.The NRA is the only reason we aren't like the British, or Australians, etc. They may not be perfect but they are the first string when it comes to twisting arms.
A great series! Seriously if they banned guns, or stopped selling bullets someone would find a way to make them themselves, and sell them secretly. Most of it is because the bad guys have access to guns. If they wanted to mess something up they could make a homemade bomb, or use knifes or other weapons.
There was a good example of that in London yesterday, when a Somali went berserk with a knife and killed an 87 year old American woman, cut up seven other people.You are exactly right, Alissa.
I had been thinking lately that when it comes to membership organizations, I really need to shift priorities. Knowing what is on the horizon, I plan to drop memberships with a few wildlife organizations (they can wait) and join the NRA. Seems like a better use of my money at the moment. I can't just sit by and do nothing while my rights are under attack like never before.One more lib on the Supreme Court and we are finished for good on the second amendment. --Troy
An annual membership only costs $35.00, I think it is. It's about what you would spend for a decent lunch for yourself and the wife at a restaurant around here. I think it's a good investment. I know without the NRA, I'd be shooting black powder like my pal in Australia. If Hillary gets in, we are FUBAR, plain and simple. I don't know whether to stay here, or go to Costa Rica. My brothers are thinking about bailing, and it looks like a nice place to live from what all I can tell. They've spent a lot of time down there and it sounds sweet. I don't want to live with a bunch of a**holes like I see on tv telling me how I have to live. Nor am I particularly enamored of the idea of going out in a blaze of fire and smoke up here. But hell, at my age, it might be better than living another ten years or so and then dying in a hospital while the nurses stand outside the door and make fun of me.....
Well Harry, you and your brothers would really need to weigh things out. I spent enough years down there to know it's not a paradise. It's absolutely not a place to live if you don't like to be around people. They love to chat it up!Who knows. I've talked about Panama before and I might change my mind when I reach retirement. I keep thinking... will this country hold out at least until I retire?Hell, I might just have to join you in CR. Get busy livin', or get busy dyin' --T
Well, Australia and Canada both turned me down. Got to have a fall back position somewhere. Panamanians don't much like Americans I'm told so I didn't consider that. My mom says we should go to Belize. She and my dad stayed down there a lot before he died. I like North Georgia but the United States may just get to be too stressful if Clinton gets elected. I may need to sell out and do a Tom Neale.
