No fun. Not gentlemanly.

Do you think that what you do is a bit of "over-kill"? Yikes!
What difference does it make if it is a ar15 or the Ruger mini 14

Both shoot the same round
Both are semi auto
The Ruger weighs more and does not have a carry handle??

Conservatism is a pro-Christian ideology and liberalism is an anti-Christian ideology. I will never be afraid to drive that point home. When the GOP accepts reality, adopts the tactics of the Democratic Party, and starts paying off our own Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons to reach out to minority groups and call Democrats racists, we'll start making inroads with minorities for the first time in decades.

The GOP often foolishly retreats from social issues. This is a huge mistake in an era when 76% of the country is Christian and most liberals find sincere Christian beliefs to be repellent. We don't have to preach at anyone, wag our fingers, or turn into legions of Ned Flanders, but we shouldn't be afraid to talk about our Christian beliefs, stick up for Christians who are under attack, and hammer the Left for its anti-Christian bigotry. Conservatism is a pro-Christian ideology and liberalism is an anti-Christian ideology. We should never be afraid to drive that point home.

How about we treat the Left to some of its own medicine? Libs throw a pie at a conservative author on campus; then we promise to shower every liberal speaker on the same campus with garbage. They post a conservative address online; we post two liberal addresses online. They hold a protest at someone's house; then we hold a protest at someone's house. They hit one of our politicians with glitter; we hit one of their politicians with coal dust. Liberals have a mentality that says, "Everything we do is harmless, but everything conservatives do is potentially dangerous." Yet, we're usually too well behaved to copy their tactics. Mimic those tactics once or twice and the Libs will freak out so hard that they'll start declaring it to be off limits for everyone, including their own activists.

Conservatives tend to do well with this one until they get to the last part. Polarization is at the core of the Left's strategy. According to liberals, if you're conservative, you hate blacks, Hispanics, gays, Jews, Muslims, women, the poor, the middle class, the environment, and probably a half dozen other groups I've forgotten. Even when something is in front of our face, conservatives shy away from polarization. What's wrong with pointing out how hostile the Democratic Party has become to Christianity? Why not point out the truth: that most white liberals are racists who think black Americas are too stupid and incompetent to compete with white Americans, which is why they push Affirmative Action and racial set asides? Why not note that liberals want poor Americans to stay poor and dependent, because as long as they do, they'll keep voting for the Democrat Party? There's a reason Barack Obama bows to foreign leaders, is constantly apologizing for America, attended an anti-white, anti-American church for 20 years, and it's why his wife was proud of the country for the FIRST TIME because she thought it was going to elect her husband. The sad truth is that these are people who hate and despise this country. Why do you think "hope and change" appealed so much to Obama that he made it his theme? When you look at America as an evil, racist, unfair, horrible place to live inhabited by ignorant trash and "bitter clingers," what else would you do other than hope for change? If you love this country and the values it represents, the people in the White House not only don't share your values, they hold people like you in utter contempt.

Thru death can a nation learn? I am watching news. MSNBC this morning, I flip back and forth. I prefer Fox, but I listen to all stations.

They ran the names of the vicitims. Really hits home when you see all of the 6yr old deaths. Then they did a nice piece on the NBA. The Miami Heat honored the victims before last nights game. The thing I found most effective was the use of children. All of the players had their childen in hand. What a wonderful sight !!!! Family !!!! Can this be a moment to reflect? Can we as a country step up and remember these deaths thru family?

The NBA could run a great campaign. Be a family, you never know when it could come to an end. Show the family side of the players. Could that ever be a negative?

MSNBC is "NOT" a news channel.

They "DO NOT" present the news.

They have "NEVER" presented any news.

They are nothing more than a left wing smear operation that blasts conservatives and anybody else who wont agree with them 24/7.

This is why they only have a small fraction of the viewers that FOX NEWS has.

If they would change their format and present "hard news" like FOX does, without the spin, they would have no problem increasing the number of their viewers exponentially......but this would defeat their purpose.

We don't agree on this. I think it's important to know what everyone is saying. I'm not ignorant to the objectives. Last night I turned Fox off. The program started a 9pm. Justice with judge Jeanine was the program. She did somethings I think were not proper. I turned the program off. All of us need to realize there is a price to pay for 24 hour news. News was never meant to be entertainment. If you don't listen to the other side, how do you know what they are thinking.

Listen carefully to what MSNBC offers. There is a difference between supporting and being educated. Listen to the programs and understand the themes. Learn the talking points. I'm not saying it will help educate others. But, we owe it to ourselves to understand the current liberal thought process.

I agree.

The only thing I was saying is that MSNBC is "NOT" a legitimate news organization. I check them out once in a while to see what they are saying, but it never surprises me when I hear their insanity, it's exactly the kind of nonsense that I'd expect coming from the left.

FOX presents "hard news" from 10:00 AM till 8:00 PM.

MSNBC presents "sh!t" 24/7.

There's a big difference here.

The left blames the ills of society on Corporations and Individuals,...(successful, well to do, hard working,...("rich"), people), and on inanimate objects like Guns,...(the same guns that guarantee our freedoms).

They never place any blame on the millions of fathers who abuse drugs and abandon their children, and the subsequent number of women who end up abusing their children as a result.

Nor do they ever place any blame on the perpetrators of violence, but on the contrary, they vigorously defend them,...(and their actions), and always blame some other "individual" or weapon, or group, or policy, or mindset,...(racism), etc.

They blame it on hard working Americans,...(Capitalists), and on their guns,...(2ND Amendment Right). It's not hard to see that they're trying to destroy our freedom and prosperity.

They never look to themselves for a solution other than to personally attack their opponents.

This thread is living proof of their ideology, their strategy, their propoganda, their tactics,...(Alinsky), their ignorance, and their hatred.

The left will continue to champion "Unions",...(the same Unions that are bankrupting the States).

They blame Capitalism and big Corporations,..(successful individuals), by picking a target and then "personalizing that target,...(ex. the Koch brothers, etc.).

They ignore the economic realities of Capitalism and they will continue to destroy the fabric of our Free Market Society through the implementation of their Socialist agenda.

I like the way you put your lie in the first line- no further consideration is needed.

Of course: you were established as a liar a very long time ago, it's just that you take 3,500 words to getting around to making your point.

PS: I was taught that lies make baby Jesus cry.

You keep him in tears.
