And what's wrong with believing in Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny? If you have any sense at all you know you can't believe in the Democrats, and the Republicans. Hell if Santa, and the Bunny were in charge they would get more done than that bunch of clowns that are in DC now have accomplished.

Defiant, running this gunshop is a twenty four hour a day job.Especially with reloading and repairs.But, our prices are very good, and our guns all have lifetime transferable warranties.Accidentally run over your gun, get a brand new one.Working for yourself, you work harder.Our custom reloads are used by competition shooters.The hard part, is owning a bunch of guns, and not being able to shoot them.....

It's funny that posting a topic about how people can drive around town with their kids hanging out window with no repercussions, but gossip and slander is left up.... Sounds like a cover up? Hebbronville, TX

Sounds like business is good. I like reloading. I use mostly Hornady and Sierra for revolver loads and Barnes for rifle. Have yet to take that 460
Rowland that I put together out on a hog hunt, but I have some pretty hot
Buffalo Bore ammo for it.

The only thing the fools in DC accomplished is a 24 billion dollar loss to the economy.

Very good defiant but not totaly accurate. Lets take a step further. Republicans are still in denial. Viewing future negotiations and debates with tainted ideologies.
Presenting demands for debt reduction when there is debt reduction evolving. Thus far Obama has cut deficit annual debt in half from the 2008 deficit that was consuming our nation. This they fail to recognize.
Obamacare as an investment for expanding employment and health to the nation. This they can not and will not comprehend.
Inequality of our laborers productivity distribution. This they fail to recognize.
Starving the middle class dynamo of its fuel to produce has been demonstrated by their desires on more than one occasion. This they comprehend. How that relates to the financial destruction of our nation is what they fail to comprehend.
Leveling the fields of financial inequality? Dogmatically objecting while feeding the top of the pyramid, increasing ever further the inequality and reducing available fuel for the middle class dynamos. This they comprehend !
Americans have voiced their concerns on these issues on several occasions that republicans have continuously ignored. As they gather themselves up from the recent failed debacle of their invention, what is it they seek?
Not a replay of the bruising defeat of their archaic tactic of hostage / ransom but to once again return to square one and start over again. All the time wasted in-between is to be forgotten? Failing to bring up bills for debate on issues that are pressing our nation. Illuminating how failed leadership can not proceed to progression as they are preoccupied with redundant strategies of restart, restart, restart. Subject-ting our congress to the least productive in our nations history.
We The People are not appreciating that intelligent leadership is using our congress for mere hands on education for unqualified candidates in authority. A means to identify and expel incompetent leadership within congress should be called out. Just as teachers must identify the child that is failing to comprehend their education and take the necessary steps to rectify that problem that benefits all concerned. So should it be to our leadership and those that distract our capabilities to progress.
An employer that does not address the failing of an employee’s productivity, is compromising the integrity of the employer’s establishment. How can we ask anything less from those in authority?

On Tuesday, the 33 veterans and military groups of The Military Coalition stood together at the World War II Memorial to demand that Washington end the shutdown. And last night, Washington finally listened. The shutdown is over -- but our work to support vets and their families is not.

For IAVA, the end of this shutdown means preparing for the next one. Because, unfortunately, Washington could be back to playing political games again come January. We must ensure that veterans are never vulnerable because politicians can’t do their job. That is why we are urging Congress right now to pass advanced funding for the entire VA, so that VA services never again are interrupted by political posturing. It’s also time to get back to work to end the backlog, which still affects 435,000 veterans.

But we can’t do any of this without you. Help us fight against another shutdown. Click here:

https://secure.iava.org/donate-now ...

to donate $20 or whatever you can today.

For 16 days, Washington used the men and women who serve this country as pawns in their political games, putting at risk the disability and education benefits that are a lifeline to veterans and their families. The progress made on reducing the VA disability benefits backlog stalled. Critical VA services were suspended. And families of the fallen were forced to rely on charity to be able to travel to receive their loved one. The impact of the shutdown was so far-reaching that demand for non-profit veterans assistance programs like our Rapid Response Referral Program increased by as much as 500 percent.

It was -- and still is -- disgraceful. Give what you can today to help us fight for veterans every day.

Thanks,

-- Team IAVA
