When did so many of us become so fearful?

When did we, proud of our melting-pot origins, become determined to keep out immigrant families seeking a chance at the American dream? When did we stop being proud of our government and start hoarding guns to protect us against the invasion of our homes by mythical government storm troopers?

There ARE Americans demanding such. Liberal politicians blow them off, and the liberal media won't report it. The Americans demanded such could even outnumber the ones who are trashing the Constitution, but with the current bunch controlling everything it is like talking to the wind. Sometimes I think Jefferson knew what he was talking about when he said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Oh, I agree 100%! I DO believe in violent revolution whenit's need every once in awhile.

And many people are cluseless about teh fact, because of liberal brain-washing, that the SECOND AMENDMENT'S GUARANTEE of the RIGHT of citizens to "keep and bear arms" is to protect us FROM the government ! The primary purpose of that amendment is to preserve the RIGHT of Americnas to KILL AGENTS OF THE GOVERNMENT, be they IRS, FBI, ATF, or whatever other "alphabet soup agency" the government wants to use to oppress American citizens.

Geez Tone a state of moral or cultural decline seems to fit homosexuality to our society pretty accurately. The words I provided a couple of posts back reflect my point. Marriage can be considered part of culture. Those engaging in vice such as homosexual acts and considering it marriage and parenting is a form of defamation and degredation of all marriage. A sh!tstain, if you will.
That's silly since being gay is not a moral issue, any more than being left-handed is a moral issue (although dumb fundies like you once considered that to be a moral issue, also.)

I was born gay. I never had a choice. I never had any attraction to a woman. When I was a naive and innocent 12 year old boy, I started to realize I was only attracted to other boys. I spent the next 12 years after that trying NOT to be gay (and certainly not "acting on it.") If it were a simple moral issue, I would have chosen to be straight. It's that simple. I'm a much more moral guy than most people in the world. I have no lack of self control or willpower.

So you're speaking to things about which you know zero.

And that takes out all the rest of your argument. Since being gay is morally neutral, you can't say my marriage is immoral or raising kids is immoral. That's just your prejudice talking.

Why don't you use this opportunity to ask questions of real live gay people instead of showing us nonsense you read on the internet? I always offer that opportunity to the dumb fundies and they rarely take it. They want to cling to their prejudice rather than learn.

My marriage is an example to more than half of straight marriages that fail.

At about $1600 an ounce it's worth a lot of good. Gold is a hedge against inflation. Not college educated are we Tone? At least in business anyhow. Use YOUR head bubba.
Sheesh.
You're not getting it.

In a mad max world, gold is worthless. It's just pretty. And kinda strong. And hard to find.

It might be worth something for a little while if the financial system collapses, but again - quickly, the things that will become worth more than gold are the things we need to live. Nobody needs gold to live. Your choice when you are starving: food vs gold. Go.

I can't believe you went and said it again. Gold will ALWAYS have value. The dollar is backed by DEBT and has lost most of it's purchasing power.
It's called leaving the grocery store after spending $100 and saying is that it?

Gold has kept it's value for at least the past 7000 years. Why would that change now ? Gold will ALWAYS be valuable. One reason is because it's so damn rare.

Do you know how much gold has been mined in teh past 7000 years ?

I know you're all desperate to believe this nonsense about gold, because otherwise you'll have to admit you've been sold a bill of goods.

I will say it again: if money becomes worthless, and everybody is shooting each other, gold won't mean a thing.

If I'm starving and you come up with a sack of gold, guess what - I won't care.

Tony, gold used to be money. During some periods of history gold was the only money people had. Then the stinking government decided to start printing money so they could control the money and the amount of value that printed money has. They did this by allowing the Federal Reserve to be put together to be our "national bank" and control the amount of money and how much it is worth. They couldn't do that with gold because the market value determines what gold is worth. I sort of understand your point - if nobody has food, then nobody will want gold. However, if some people have food, gold will again become the currency for purchasing the food that some people have. There will always be people who want gold, even if they have to be somewhat hungry from trading too much of the food they have for the gold. And as the world recovers from the collapse, some human beings will be resilient enough to get things goings again. If we can get the socialists and communists out of the way so that free enterprise can again function, then things will start to grow again. We won't stay collapsed forever. God help us to learn from the horrible mistakes being made now and not make those same mistakes again once things are growing again. In that time, the piles of fiat currency will be good for nothing but starting fires, but gold will have value. In other words, you are full of crap.

No. It's the TRUTH. The MAIN purpose of thw Second Amendment is to safeguard our LIBERTY and prevent a TYRANNICAL government (such as we have now with the Marxist Obamaniac).

If teh citizenry is disarmed, then HOW could we stop the tyranny of teh federal government.

This is what our Founding Fathers forught and died for in the revoltionary War. The RIGHT to safeguard LIBERTY by KILLING individual government officals, and their armed forces. THAT is what teh Second Amendment is about !

Anybody who calls Obama tyrannical cannot be taken seriously.

Go live in a shack in the woods or something and tell yourself everybody is out to get you.

Screwball.
