The ease with which immigrants can rip off the system sometimes boggles the mind. In 2005, it emerged that the Norwegian was paying disability benefits to Moroccan immigrants who moved back to their homeland and who used multiple names to maximize benefits, lied about how many dependents they had and used false doctor's certificates to attest for their incapacity to work. Despite the immense size of the welfare bureaucracy the veracity of the information is rarely checked.

I agree Mr. Smith. Somalis have no conscience and are abusing tax payers by their evil and smelly ways.

That's right Pam. We the people need to stand up to these brutes who are bring filth to a clean nation.

Food stamps are not to be abused by Somalis without consequences.

Their shacks need to be burnt to the ground to prevent the spread of insects and disease.

Somalis belong in Somalia. They should NOT be allowed to take our public assistance money and then go fight for ISIS or other terrorists groups.

This is part of the Obama plan of total chaos and martial law. These people are the foot soldiers in Obama's army to impose Sharia on America and ultimately confiscate weapons.

Hopefully the new mayor will address this problem that is liked to terrorism with so many Somalis returning to Africa and Syria to fight for Islamic State terrorists.

OMG As we all know, videos average citizens make showing abusive behavior by police can go viral and make a big difference in a national debate. I encourage people to film a SNAP recipient purchasing luxury foods or name brand foods instead of generic brands with SNAP cards. Post the videos to show how people abuse SNAP. If the actions of just a few cops can be extrapolated (yes Duke I know big words 2) to be deemed representative of the majority, the same can be done to prove the wasteful and abusive practices of SNAP and welfare recipients especially Muslims and illegal Latinos. L and I have been using cell phone cameras when we can to show how much we are being taken advantage of and this needs to stop IMO. time to take America back LOL

What were you buying a collectable?
If you have one or two or a few "working " guns you don't need a safe. You can buy some cases or zipper sleeves yo keep them clean, or the smaller box / cases for handguns.
If a basement is dry and that means low humidity too mot just no water on the floor after a rain it is ok for a safe.
If you are buying your first hand gun just put a lint frer towel over it and keep it by your bed and chair and kitchen counter as you go throughout your home. Remember a locked gun is as useful as a rock
I don't know much about guns but am concerned with all the violence especially stabbings. Some say get a gun others say No U will only hurt UR self or others and get mace or electric stun gun if someone grabs U in the parking lot. the gun would need 2 B able to fit a small glam style purse though.

Pam, don't ever carry a gun in your purse or leave it on your car. Get proficient with it above all else and never hesitate if you need to use it. Shoot and then ask ?'s.
This is for your safety.
Don't walk alone. Know your surroundings.
And remember, they'll always be someone with a bigger gun.
As far as storing it...loaded and where you can get to it and NO ONE ELSE knows.
The little bags of crystals that come in your shoe boxes, new purses and other items will help keep moisture abated.
And in what state do you have to have a safe before you purchase a firearm? Save your $.
Take care and get on that Q-10 before flu season.
