Right, because when the SS breaks down your door in the middle of the night, you're going to reach for your gun and shoot 'em all, and get away with it.

I don't think the fact that certain people don't have heath care is a huge drag on the economy. Some folks just think it is inhumane that the rest of us who work for our own healthcare don't take more money that we could use for our own families and provide free healthcare for grown adults who can't afford it. Me, sorry, I'd rather save for my kids college fund than pay to provide some working age adult with insurance. I have no moral issues with it. Another grown working age adult is not my child who I have to provide medical care for.
My suggestion to the grown adult without insurance would be to get a second job and work more, rather than to ask me to work more for him or her.
To the idiot dumb f's who are too chicken shyte to have a discussion with me and instead choose to speak through judging icons:

As far as I am concerned, if you need to come up with $500 to buy your family insurance and you don't have enough $, despite working 40 hours a week, you can go pick up a Friday night shift and a Saturday night shift each weekend working at the 7-11 or delivering pizzas, if you want health insurance so bad. If you have a wife, she can pick up a Sunday shift too. Those extra hours would go a long way towards buying your family insurance.

Why do I feel this way ... it is because that is what I would do to take care of my responsibilities and my family. To me, that is what you do. I don't seem to be alone in this regard. I have a buddy who worked as an IT professional for AT&T cellular making pretty decent coin and guess what he also delivered pizzas at night for extra cash. I have a family member who is recently retired, but to make ends meet he drives a school bus during the school year, delivers pizzas some nights, and during the summer, since you can't drive a bus, he works for a park district outside in the hot sun making about $8.00 an hour. His wife also works full time.

Those are my values. Those are my people. Those are midwestern values. Those are the values of the farmer who wakes up at 5:30 and works 14 hours a day if necessary during harvest time ... why because he has a family to feed and responsibilities and a farm to run. Those are the values of the tradesman who works a 40 hour week, but picks up side jobs on the weekend to earn extra cash. These are the folks our government should be more concerned for. These are the folks our government should be looking out for.

Instead, liberal f' tards would rather tax the shyte out of these types of people so that some lazy a$s SOB who feels too entitled to work more than 40 hours a week to TAKE CARE OF HIS OWN RESPONSIBILITIES, SELF, AND FAMILY can get free or subsidized health insurance. To them, it would be mean and cruel if they didn't have quiet nights at home on Friday and Saturday night with their family and instead had to work a little bit more to TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN RESPONSIBILITY, SELF, AND FAMILY.

I often times think we should divide the country in half and give half of the country to folks who are like me and value common sense, responsibility, and work ethic and give the other half to the people who cry themselves to sleep at night thinking of the plights of freeloaders and who think it is mean and cruel if someone can't have quiet days and nights at home on the weekend with their family. In 50 years, I can guarantee my half would be way more prosperous and productive. The other half would be bankrupt and have all the free loaders and all the stupid people who have deluded themselves into thinking the free loaders are innocent victims of society.

You all can have your own values, but I challenge you to say mine are inferior to yours.

Mine are the values that made this country the greatest nation on the planet, once upon a time...

Yours will all but assure that we continue down the pathway that Greece has taken and many of the socialist countries of Europe that have stagnant economies, bloated governments, massive entitlements, and a whole lot of whiny people who have allowed themselves to become dependent upon the government and get upset and riot when the government tries to take steps to restore balance and enact reforms that would create more economic opportunity for those who would choose to take advantage of them and prosper.

Okay. What if an intruder breaks down my door in the middle of the night and has a gun?

They (the judging icons) usually don't make sense or correlate to what the post was anyway.

I took it as another opportunity to once again demonstrate the backwardness of their values and the direction they wish to see this country go. The fact that they choose to be silent, except for little judging icons, only demonstrates this to everyone.

If they had a leg to stand on and I was so clueless, certainly it would be an easy feat for them to actually use their words and explain to everyone why this is true.

Here is the link for the python hunt.

Why aren't all the gun people eager to come don to the Evergalades and shoot 15 foot snakes?

I for one happen to like snakes (proud father of a ball python) and the very idea of a "python hunt" sickens me. Pythons are harmless and they even help control the gator population (which are far more dangerous to humans and pets.) They should be left alone.

I too was a snake owner (2 ball pythons and a red-tail boa back in college) and snakeskin anything grosses me out.

But these pythons in FL are NOT native; most are burmese pythons that were once pets and when they got too big for their owners to care for, they were released into the wild. They're decimating all types of native wildlife and are breeding like rabbits. One female had like 86 eggs in her when she was killed.

I don't like how it's being carried out, but these snakes definitely need to be culled.
