Get them out of office, eh?
Have you no clue as to how rigged our elections are? Your vote does NOT count, get it? Ever wonder why they are pushing electronic voting on us?
New Mexico may still be like the old west where you do as you please, but the rest of the country is not.
Well don't vote, don't do anything but sit on your ass and complain and hope other people do the dirty work for you. I am sure that is what our Founding Fathers did, right?

You can ALWAYS move!

I have no issues or problems with anybody here in the United States when it comes to the law or the way I live. You should really get you a visa and at least visit our country for yourself..
There are laws, even in your state, that you don't even know exist. Get caught breaking one of them, I dare you. You'll be reminded; ignorance is no excuse of the law.

<quoted text>The Children can use it now. Why should they have to wait until I die before they receive their inheritance? The kids are getting old themselves We had them when we where in our teens & twenties. Also we are not wanting to subject the children & grandchildren to the family fights and legal problems that seem to occur during probate. So we deeded the property to the kids free and clear no strings attached. We have kept a life estate on a few acres where we now live. Im planning to start drawing from the social security Ponzi scheme in Jan of 2014. Ive hauled all the scrap from the place away. sold all the meat sheep. sold most of the cattle. Gave away the horse. Sold most of my equiptment. We took that money and built a new house that is set up for older folks. If there ever comes a time that we are confined to a wheelchair or something this new place has the ramps already in place. not a step in the whole place. the bathroom has the grab bars and proper shower ect. A garage is build right on to it with a automatic door. just drive right in. We are being realistic and know old age and its rigors are fast catching up to us. it wont be long before we will need adult diapers. Im not going to be one of those old geezers you see with the pee stains on the front of their pants. I enjoy the challenge of a change its a new chapter in the adventure of life.
That is great that you are prepared. I'm sure your kids appreciate it. I too am preparing for the next chapter of my life. I meet with my financial planner this week to discuss my retirement options and a business venture I am working on.

Nothing like being in business for yourself I am told. Just make sure if you are going to retire you do not have to go back to work.

In MI you can get a concealed carry permit. Get caught with a concealed weapon in a school, even with a "permit" and a few other places and it's four years in the slammer. I think it's because your life is less valuable there.

Get pulled over and don't tell the officer you have a concealed weapon AND a permit to carry on you...again four years. The officer can take the gun from you during the citation. This leaves you vulnerable. What if the officer isn't really an officer, but an impersonator. It's happened a lot where a "cop car" pulled someone over and the woman was raped by the cop impersonator.

So much for being able to exercise a "right."

Don't carry in a school. If you carry concealed in a school don't tell anybody that's why it is called Concealed Carry, nobody is suppose to know you have it. It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Don't get pulled over. If you get pulled over don't tell the Cop you have a gun. If he asks to search your vehicle do not give him permission. If you are abiding by the law you have no worries about the Police. What if the Officer is part of the secret squirrel cartel club and they pull along side your vehicle and light you up with a bazooka! There are too many what if's in life to worry about. Police impersonators are not as common as you lead on. As you are being pulled over dial 911 and ask the dispatcher if the stop is legit. They will tell you, unless the dispatcher is an impostor at the Police Station. LOL! Hope this helps..

Hey Curm, it was not meant as a criticism, just letting you know it did not work. The concealed carry license is expensive, and just a registry that law enforcement can refer to.
I like the old saying,"Better to be tried by twelve, than carried by six."
In rural areas you will see rifles in the back windows of pickup trucks.
During hunting season, there is some serious firepower on the roads.
The man that was dragged from his van and beaten by the group of motorcyclists sure could of used a firearm. Lol
And I could sure use those motorcyclists. Some idiot ran over a family of turkeys. The whole damn family with young ones we had been watching grow all summer! That driver needs to be taught a lesson.

It's Mexican Citizens/Illegals/Smugglers and/or Cartel members kidnapping each other. It's not your average Citizen having any problems. I have many friends in Phoenix and they love it. They have no problems. You compare apples to oranges and you know it. It's like saying that you would be in constant danger in Chicago because of the daily murder rate. If you are in the black gang banging section of Chicago then you would be in danger but anywhere else is relatively safe for a big city.

Too bad you can't find something alarming in the area I live in. This is true FREEDOM!

You should have chased those turkeys off the road every time they came close to it. It's the tree hugging goody two shoes who are responsible for the deaths of many animals thinking that they are so cute and they just want to help them by feeding them and such. Please....

Judge without knowing the facts often?

This was a family that hung out in an area half hour away from our cabin. Every time we'd be on our way home, we'd see them. No bird feeders involved. Just a two lane road in the middle of nowhere; also called God's Country.

And you think I'm really supposed to know they are in the road and run over there every time and chase them out. LMAO

We had a blue-light rapist in Arkansa a few years back.Women were told to not stop immediately, slow down and continue to a populated area before stopping.
Rumor has it, he gave Hillary Clinton a warning ticket.
