I gave not borrowed I agve him the $1000 he said he needed. Found out the next week he had bought a new gun. THAT IS EVIL......Oh and his daughter never got dental work done. I FIRED HIM AS SOON AS FOUND OUT.
I get it. Just because I donít agree with you doesnít mean I canít keep up.

Itís his business, not yours, not mine. Is he doing anything illegal to his family members?

Of course with one employee you donít mind Obamacare. Your business is exempt. Do you provide health care for your sole employee?

Where did I say I donít like taxes? Nobody really likes them, theyíre a necessity. What I really donít like is the government wasting money and giving it to people too lazy to earn their own living.

Please show me one advertisement from a gun manufacturer that states Obama plans to take our guns away.
Obama did that himself during the second presidential debate.
Let me ask you something. How many people are employed by the NRA? Now, what happens if one day the NRA is successful in eliminating all threat to gun ownership? That's correct, all those people will be unemployed and no more money comes in. Do you really think the NRA wants to win? Or is it more likely they play the game with the politicians, both Democrat and Republican?
While of late the main focus of the NRA seems to be protecting the 2nd Amendment it has many other roles it fills.

The CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program)sponsors clubs/matches that involve competition shooting. It also aquires surplus arms/ammo for sale to NRA members who meet the required criteria.

The Eddie Eagle program promotes firearm safty and classes around the country to young people.

The NRA is also involved with arms manufactureres with insuring that safe reliable arms reach the market with testing of new products and reviews of performance.

While the left swears on the stack of Bibles it wishes to abolish that the NRA wants a machinegun in every home and a howitzer in every garage the truth is the NRA has been one of the leading organizations calling for RESPONSIBLE,SENSIBLE GUN ownership and prosecution of those who use firearms in the commission of a crime.

For all its denigration by the left it is above all fair in who it rates as a friend of the 2nd Amendment whether Democrat or Republican. It has backed members of both parties,with the only standard being the preservation of the 2nd.

Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives
Liberals think theyíre more intelligent than conservatives because they are
It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them.
Defined as such, liberalism is evolutionarily novel. Humans (like other species) are evolutionarily designed to be altruistic toward their genetic kin, their friends and allies, and members of their deme (a group of intermarrying individuals) or ethnic group. They are not designed to be altruistic toward an indefinite number of complete strangers whom they are not likely ever to meet or interact with. This is largely because our ancestors lived in a small band of 50-150 genetically related individuals, and large cities and nations with thousands and millions of people are themselves evolutionarily novel.
The examination of the 10-volume compendium The Encyclopedia of World Cultures, which describes all human cultures known to anthropology (more than 1,500) in great detail, as well as extensive primary ethnographies of traditional societies, reveals that liberalism as defined above is absent in these traditional cultures. While sharing of resources, especially food, is quite common and often mandatory among hunter-gatherer tribes, and while trade with neighboring tribes often takes place, there is no evidence that people in contemporary hunter-gatherer bands freely share resources with members of other tribes.
Because all members of a hunter-gatherer tribe are genetic kin or at the very least friends and allies for life, sharing resources among them does not qualify as an expression of liberalism as defined above. Given its absence in the contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes, which are often used as modern-day analogs of our ancestral life, it may be reasonable to infer that sharing of resources with total strangers that one has never met or is not likely ever to meet Ė that is, liberalism Ė was not part of our ancestral life. Liberalism may therefore be evolutionarily novel, and the Hypothesis would predict that more intelligent individuals are more likely than less intelligent individuals to espouse liberalism as a value.
Analyses of large representative samples, from both the United States and the United Kingdom, confirm this prediction. In both countries, more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to be liberals than less intelligent children. For example, among the American sample, those who identify themselves as ďvery liberalĒ in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 106.4, whereas those who identify themselves as ďvery conservativeĒ in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 94.8.
Another cut-n-paste in a series of cut-n-pastes.... All I can derive from this liberal drivel is the fact that you are lacking personally in critical thinking skills and ape others propaganda to project the ideology you espouse. That said,we can only conclude that an original thought and a glass of iced tea would most likely put you in a coma.

Itís not an issue that Obama is black. Honestly, heís not black. Heís also white. Deal with that fact.
Itís his voting records on gun related issues. Do you pay attention to his speeches? He has illegally bypassed Congress more than once. He has stonewalled Congress. He has inappropriately used executive privilege. I could go on. Iím no fan of Bush either. Obama being mixed race or democrat are irrelevant. What he says and does is relevant. Using your own words, are you that blind?
Where did I make reference to illegal gun sales? You added that. Try to comprehend what you read. Donít assume thereís a racial motive when discussing this issue with someone.

You can't even recognize that we now have a Black President. Sitting there pretending he is white. Sheesh.

The world police force is not our creation. If we are not the world police force, there are other countries that would be happy to take that position from us. Now who do you suppose is large and powerful enough to take our place?

We do give billions to other countries. When problems arise, those billions are on the table and we have a say-so in their decision making. Or would you rather us getting dragged into yet another war?

I agree with you in that your disdain for people who would rather survive you would rather not compete. Wellllll,you shouldn't have to worry about it.

1. None of your neighbors will bother to feed you since you don't wish to be a contributing member of a group. You may starve first.

2. More likely. They'll "remove" your whiney,complaining leech-y azz from their small inclusive society. No,they wouldn't shoot you. Ammo would be to prescious to waste on a group non-productive act. Most likely knifed or beat with a rock or club.

3. Wish granted.

Quite a story. I suppose you understand how us taxpayers feel when we go grocery shopping and happen to get stuck behind the 300 bear with four kids. She empties her heaping cart of groceries, pays for that with her food stamps, and then buys beer and a carton of cigarettes costing her over $70.00 cash. Or (as I've seen many times) after they pay for the food with food stamps, they have another cart for their cat food, dog food, kitty litter and animal toys. That they pay with cash.

This one is easy. It is you that needs to pay attention. He mentioned using guns illegally. Nowhere did he say anything about illegal gun sales.

You know, if liberals spent half as much time working on themselves as they do putting words in other people's mouths to attempt the illusion of being better, this country wouldn't be in the condition it is.
