Where do I report the 3 incidents I mentioned in my last post? I wanna make sure my numbers get included in the "defensive use of guns" statistics. It wouldn't be fair if the only stats we had were negative ones would it? (Sep 8, 2013 | post #3137)
I've owned at least one gun since I was 11 years old. I'm now 42. I raised two kids and now have two grandchildren. On no less than 3 occasions, I believe I saved my kids from violence with the help of a gun. On one occasion for sure, my kids benefited from my having a gun. So far I have been the cause of NO(zero) deaths despite my status as a handgun owner. Please justify your stats with those facts. In fact, why don't you justify your stats period? Where are you getting your numbers? I've never seen ANY study that purports to quantify the number of times a child was "protected " by a loved one in possession of a handgun. How would you even measure that? Answers please. (Sep 8, 2013 | post #3136)
Go Ahead. Find a "child killed by gun accident" story from the last week in any state you want. I'll find 10 people killed in auto accidents in that same state in that same week. In fact--I'll find 10 people killed that same week in each of the 49 states you DIDN'T mention. Does that mean cars are dangerous? Absolutely! Does that mean cars should be made illegal? That depends on how much you care about the 38,808 innocent people killed by automobile violence each year. So you tell me. (Sep 8, 2013 | post #3135)
Wait a minute. You don't really think you're on some kind of government watch list 'cause you've discovered the well concealed "TRUTH" behind the Federal Reserve do you? Ha Ha! Ummm--hate to break it to you, but pretty much every thinking adult knows all about the Federal reserve/central bank/fiat currency scam. Where have YOU been? (Apr 7, 2013 | post #6166)
I assume you're referring to the Federal Reserve? "In his first term as President, Woodrow Wilson(a DEMOCRAT) persuaded a DEMOCRATIC Congress to pass major progressive reforms. Historian John M. Cooper argues that, in his first term, Wilson successfully pushed a legislative agenda that few presidents have equaled, remaining unmatched up until the New Deal. This agenda included the >>>> >FEDERAL RESERVE ACT<<< <<<, Federal Trade Commission Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Federal Farm Loan Act and an income tax." Who is it that can't face reality? Moron. (Apr 7, 2013 | post #6165)
Please define "needy". Nobody goes hungry in the US-we have food stamps for that. Nobody goes without shelter--we have homeless shelters and section 8. Nobody goes without medical care--we have Medicaid and emergency rooms that MUST provide free services when necessary. Nobody goes without cell service for Christ's sake!--we got free cell phones! WTF are you thinking man?! And let me ask you this: Are you one of the "needy" or the "greedy" ? You have a computer and internet access. Why don't you sacrifice a little for the "needy" among us? Or are you too "greedy" ? (Apr 7, 2013 | post #6164)
Look, It's pretty sad when someone embarrasses themselves due to outright ignorance, but it's forgivable. You don't have that excuse. Apparently you've actually put in some time and possibly even a small amount of EFFORT in an attempt to educate yourself on this subject. Not too much of either I hope, 'cause it was wasted. You've embarrassed yourself anyway. I know it sounds crazy, but if you look into it even halfassedly, you'll discover something absolutely ASTONISHING! Despite the utter B.S. you've been fed by your teachers, your friends, your favorite news source and the party itself of course, the Democratic party IS now and always HAS been the party of the racists. The Republican party was formed for the express purpose of ousting the Democrats and ending their historical mistreatment of blacks. That's undisputed historical FACT. And it's not hard to verify--assuming you want to. I could literally fill pages with examples of Republican anti-racism VS Democratic RACISM. But why bother? I hear all the time how Republicans and/or conservatives are racist. Why not provide some obvious examples? Current, recent, historic--anything . Something like this: --"In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party" -Historian Eric Foner --All time longest serving congressman and KKK member Robert Byrd. (Democratic party) --Democrats blocked Civil Rights legislation for DECADES despite constant and enormous effort by the other party. --It's the Democratic party that has trapped blacks in poverty by providing them "free" housing, food, and other goodies in exchange for their obedience and their votes. "Stay in your black neighborhood and vote for us or we'll let the Republicans cut your welfare!" Again I could go on endlessly. Prove the Republicans are racist. (Mar 28, 2013 | post #6017)
No sir. You have in no way whatsoever "got it". Feel free to keep trying though, it'd be neat if someone like you finally were to "get it". (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5829)
The thing is whites are and always have been a huge majority in the US. If whites strictly voted for whites, blacks only voted for blacks, Asians only voted for Asians, ETC.; whites would be the only candidates to ever hold office. While plenty of people would be just fine with that(white, black and other), I imagine at least a few blacks would find that pretty friekin' objectionable. If the situation were reversed--a white minority in a predominately black country--most whites would vote for the white candidate simply because of his whiteness. Especially if he was the very first white guy to be nominated after 200+ years of one black guy after another. That's not simply racism, that's human nature. As far as blacks' history of blind loyalty to the Democratic party--that's plain ol' fashioned stupidity. The Democrats have always been open and honest about their anti-black agenda, from the days of defending their right to enslave blacks, through their rabid and sometimes violent opposition to The Civil Rights Movement, right on up to their current strategy of oppression through the welfare state, the Democratic party has made their contempt for the blacks crystal clear. Yet black people keep giving them their vote in exchange for a few crumbs from the Democrat buffet. I've been called a racist for nothing more than stating the truth as I see it. Yet I have never in my life done anything to harm or hold back anyone because of their color. (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5825)
I'm sick of people disrespecting me BECAUSE I'm a white male. This has nothing to do with the color of the candidate. I responded to a post accusing ME of voting a certain way because of MY skin color. I've decided to quit arguing and just go with it. Yeah, I vote a certain way because I'm a WHITE MALE. That certain way is called "the right way". Get with the program women, blacks, yellows, reds, gays, commies, Nazi's, Muslims, Jews, retards, cripples and seniors--unless you're a WHITE MALE, you don't know how to vote.

So in your mind there's no room for alternative theories? Is it possible the liberals fought so hard for Obamacare so that the pharmaceutical, health insurance and medical industries could all get paid? And is it possible the liberals fight to keep us in our homes so that the mortgage companies can get paid with tax dollars? Is it possible liberals aren't fighting for poor people, but instead are fighting for all the agencies and industries that benefit by the poor having money to blow? Who does the minimum wage really benefit? Is it possible it benefits large corporations by pricing the competition out of the labor market? If liberals are really fighting for our survival, how can they spend tens of millions to get elected yet leave office richer than ever? How can they afford to spend those millions every four years and just keep getting richer and richer? The job just don't pay that much. Think about it. (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5815)
That's 315,360,000 rounds. "Just another guy" forgot to multiply by 24 hrs in a day. (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5814)
I know this isn't a very popular thing to say but: If white men are doing it, maybe you should consider doing it also. After all: White men founded this country. White men built this country. White men established the system of government that allows everyone else the right to participate. White men designed the machine you're using to access the internet. White men are responsible for 98% of the things that make your life comfortable. White men are the reason you have the freedom you enjoy. Maybe its time everyone started appreciating the WHITE MAN a little more. Maybe if a few more "ethnic" groups voted with the WHITE MAN, we'd halt this slow ride to nowhere. P.S. If the black man would quit blindly voting for the (Democratic)party that enslaved him and fought against his civil rights for so long, he'd find himself voting just like the WHITE MAN.

Colorado Democrats advance sweeping gun control proposals" "Senate Committee Passes First Of 4 Gun Control Bills" "Durbin talks gun control strategy in Chicago" "Washington Times Pelosi Hoping for 'Boldest Common Denominator' on Gun Control" "Gun-control bill goes before House committee Wednesday" These headlines were on the first page of a Google search for "gun control". Surely they aren't ALL made up by the NRA and the gun makers! It is your credibility BLOW IT! (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5812)
And scared seniors with threats of GOP taking away their SS and Medicaid. And scared unions with threats of GOP taking away their union cards. And scared teachers with threats of GOP taking away their funding (salary and pension) And scared gays with threats of GOP taking away their "marriage rights". And scared Mexicans with threats of GOP taking away their "undocumented " status. And scared loose women with threats of GOP taking away their "right to choose" And scared young adults with threats of GOP taking away their health insurance that they get through their PARENTS employers. And I could literally go on and on. (Mar 9, 2013 | post #5811)
