Open carry for long guns is legal but it doesn't make much sense. I am not going to walk into Denny's with a rifle. It makes other people nervous and I don't want all those around me with concealed guns cautious of me : )

I am a big gun rights advocate, but open carry demonstrations are not productive and can cause a PR nightmare. It is kinda like whe gay rights folks have a pride parade and run around half naked acting foolish, it turns off people that might have been a little simpathetic.
Organize voter registration drives instead.

Go complain about drunken, ribald St. Patrick's Day parades or post sports championship victory riots or lascivious Carnivale. Then we'll know you aren't just fixated on male homosexuals the way most right wing men are.

Not really condemned, more like criticized. His organizing accomplished very little, but bravo on trying. It really was part of leading him on a quest for power.
Getting people involved in the political process and voting is important, as well as being informed on the issues. I personally believe pushing socialism is a mistake other countries have made and we should not follow. I really am a big fan of the Constitution too.

Sure, but the Irish are born dunk and ribald, who am I to judge? The Irish are not parading in speedos and dry humping each other, but they do wear skirts and blow on their pipes...

I gave several examples highlighting your selective fascination with lgbt events and you whiffed on the substance in true tee baggrz fashion.

The level of disingenuous, nonsensical, avoidant hairsplitting from tee baggrz barely approaches a fourth grade level.

And what followed in the stream of drivel was even more inane.

I was with you until the Irish part, NR. Easy on the Irish, NR.... but if you give you the Philadelphian a burr in their saddle, it's forgiven quick enough.

I love the Irish. The Irish know what it is like to be bullied by a tyrannical government and to lose their rights.

Very True... I'm quite a fan of robots as well.

I was totally ticked when they canceled Futurama which meant no more Bender. The biggest and brightest star on television...EVER.

Well...maybe that's debatable. But he was famn dunny.
