The enemy decides the frontlines of any war.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq...

South Korea?

CNN - U.S. deploys stealth fighter jets to South Korea.

The tense situation has irritated North Korea's traditional allies, China and Russia, drawing regular calls for restraint on all sides in recent weeks.

North Korea is probably just blowing off hot air again. It's probably nothing...

Smoking a fleshy cigarette I watch the fascists over the lit barrels of my gun... lit barrels, I smile and then shoot them down. They suffer... I hunt them down, mere millimeters of movement, rends their tender hides... like Marlin. They die.

In the distance I see the ambulance racing to die. It hits a mine. Is it ours or theirs? Her brilliant red-gold hair rises like my penis and then settles on the snowy, dark landscape. I wish I was taller, but I'm not.

Then why have background checks at all?
As to doctors questions, no legislation is required. Simply refuse to answer questions about weapons possession, as well as questions about alcohol consumption.
What the fk are you talking about?

The criminal background data bases exist and are currently being shared by the majority if not all of the states, matter of fact there are at least three comprehensive national data bases that are not based on scientific opinion__felon means felon.

Speaking of data bases, Pennsylvania is reviewing and may rescind it's reciprocal agreement with Florida regarding conceal carry permits. Amazing eh?

Although it is nearly a mile away, I kill the the Spanish soldiers. They die like men. In pieces. no one shall have my redhead but me. No one. Although she's dead now, only I will have her. In it's way this gruesome glory is as Troy. Leo, the ambulance driver, is Helen... the rest of these guys, I'm not sure of yet. All I know is that sooner or later we'll be in Paris... or Cuba.

An outspoken investigative journalist and former CNN correspondent has once again stressed that the US-based network is engaged in spreading Western propaganda against Iran and Syria.

Amber Lyon said that when she was working for CNN, she received orders to send false news or exclude certain information which the US administration did not approve of with the aim of inciting public opinion, Lyon added that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create propaganda,She said that the same scenario used before launching the 2003 war on Iraq is being prepared for Iran and Syria.

Amber went on to say that both states are now being subjected to “constant demonization” by American mainstream media.

The former reporter clarified that the CNN receives money from the US government and other states in exchange for aligning news content with their interests.

She described the attitude as “dangerous to the American public because they are not being given the accurate story and accurate picture of our foreign policy.”

Lyon also said that CNN was bribed by Bahrain’s regime to censor an early 2011 documentary on its brutal crackdown on popular protests.

The former CNN correspondent produced the documentary on the brutal suppression of nationwide protests in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Although it was aired domestically within the US, its broadcast on CNN International was suspiciously withheld, raising charges that the management of the mainstream TV network had pulled the plug on the news story.

The big fish dances at the end of my line and I pull hard against him even though I know the hook is already hard-set against his silvery jaw. His maleness against mine, he will surely lose. I will kill him, there is no doubt. As he rises in the coral blue water I think, "testicles." Wheras he's thinking, "lunch?"

A recent Wired piece —“America the Ammo Dealer (and Buyer)”— shows how the bullet industry has become a global business. Once again, spreading the socioeconomic costs to users isn’t a bad idea. There are so many reasons why this makes for sound public policy. There’s a long history of taxing things that are dangerous: Alcohol and tobacco are on top of the list.

It’s a long-held economic principle that taxing harmful activities can reduce their occurrence. Of course,“sin” taxes” never eliminate those activities, but they can certainly put a dent into things like drunk driving and cancer deaths. That much has been proven.

To continue on the road to gun violence remedies, we need to step out of this mindset that gun violence isn’t a socioeconomic curse that can alleviated by market-based solutions. Price the risk.

U.S.“Human Rights” Wars: Arms Control as a Weapon
The newly minted international Arms Trade Treaty is simply another device to strip nations targeted for U.S. attack of the ability to defend themselves.” The world’s biggest arms exporter and purveyor of war has once again “made human rights a weapon of mass destruction.”
The United Nations General Assembly vote on regulation of the international arms trade purports to be a modest step away from violence in the world, but is in fact the very opposite. The newly approved Arms Trade Treaty is conceived and designed as a facilitator of war by its main sponsor, the United States.

At the core of the treaty is a ban on arms exports to countries that are under U.N. embargoes, or that are accused of promoting genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. But such language is only a tool of war in the hands of the U.S. The cold fact is that, since the establishment of the United Nations to this very day, the United States and its allies, clients and proxies have been the worst perpetrators of crimes against humanity. From Vietnam to East Timor to Guatemala to Iraq to Somalia and to Congo, the U.S. has caused the deaths of well over ten million people over the past 60 years.

In the 21st century, in a cruel joke on humanity, the mass murderers in Washington put on their “human rights” hats and declared themselves to be the international community’s protectors against so-called “rogue” nations. The doctrine of “humanitarian military intervention” was inflicted on the world. It was not coincidental that each of those nations designated as rogue violators of human rights were also at the top of Washington’s hit list for regime change. Haiti was attacked and occupied, its sovereignty stolen under the auspices of the UN, for supposedly “humanitarian” reasons. Libya was bombed for seven months and plunged into a race war, under the “humanitarian” umbrella. The Democratic Republic of Congo has lost six million people at the hands of U.S. humanitarian policy. Let us one day be saved from the fatal embrace of the humanitarian superpower, who has made human rights a weapon of mass destruction.

Gun owners shooting people en masse? You seriously need to chill, Homer.

More people are killed in the streets of Chicago by gangs who have the strictest gun laws on the books.

What we need are better laws allowing mental health professionals to discern red flags and take the mentally ill off the streets who ARE killing people en masse before it's too late.

The government wouldn't make that decision. Mental health professionals would.

Obamas humanitarian warfare and that racist mockery of an International Criminal Court, is simply another device to strip nations targeted for U.S. attack of the ability to defend themselves. The immediate targets are Syria, Iran, and North Korea, which is why they voted against the treaty. Twenty-three other countries abstained, including Russia, China and India. They understand that this treaty is not about limiting warfare, but about making nations into outlaws, to be more easily subdued by the United States. In a stroke of supreme cynicism, America and its allies argued that non-state actors – like their jihadist proxies waging a war of terror against Syria – should not be subject to the treaty, because “national liberation movements” should be able to protect themselves. What shameless hypocrisy! The U.S. and Europe now sing the praises of national liberation movements, after having killed tens of millions to stifle the national aspirations of most of the world’s people.

But, that is no more insane than Washington posing as a force for peace. Not only is the U.S. the top arms exporter in the world, but 8 of the top 10 war-profiteering corporations on the planet are American. On the lips of U.S. presidents, arms control is bogus, human rights is a sham, and words of peace are actually weapons of war.

Look's like it Homer but the problem remains the same__what in the fuhell is a pit bull? A pit bull mix or a Staffordshire bull terrier? How about a pit bull mixed with a Mastiff?

Not far from my crib there is a Flea Market (Renningers) and there used to be a lady there that sold wolves. Well, not real ones but 1/2 up to 3/4 wolf mixes on the trust me scale. Owning a real wolf requires a special license and certain property restrictions.

Wolves statistically, are safer than pit bulls.
