  1. But then, we're always going to have a few Lizzie Bordens, right? I'm referring to the psychopathic broad who shot her boyfriend once while proceeding to slit his throat and stab him numerous times. Naa! Give her the jawbone.
  2. Make believe? Can't recall exactly where, but I read about that jawbone incident in my early youth. Confidentually, it did make more sense to me than your description of killing a plane load of people with a wet fart you blew while "waiting for lift-off"? Were you by chance, at one time an astronaut? Could you reference for me where some deranged soccer mom murdered a bunch of kids? Or any other kind of sports mom for that matter.

    Yay, GUNS!

    Quote: You say people can still have their guns for protection or hunting? Tell that to the people of Chicago
  4. Not having seen a picture of Lanza before or after his ride to infamy, I can't attest to what he looked like during his rampage. Even if I had a hunch the guy was nuts, I'm not qalified as a psychiatrist to have picked him out of a lineup for questioning. But the guys who shot up Columbine, the theater outside Denver or the one who shot Gabby Gifford at the political rally? Their pictures gave me the creeps,and sure looked nutty to me. And while the mass majority of those who are mentally unstable are not criminally insane, you can bet that a small faction of the nuttier ones are listening to every word being said on the issue, determined to make their mark as soon as they get a chance. Long before firearms were ever invented, a guy named Samson killed a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. Tell me now, do we really need guns to commit mass murder?
  5. Have to agree that most crimes are done by the average perp, but few of them want to get tied into mass murder unless it's gang bangin'. Moontanman dropped this link about England on the forum, but there has been very little discussion on the issue as of now. ">
  6. I am well aware of our second amendment rights. I'm just wondering if the British, Aussies and several European nations knew their gun rights before the confication started? And Scare Tactics and Strawman" my ass! The point is: Mental Cases don't give a damn who wins this stupid guns+ or guns- fiasco we have gotten ourselves into, as long as they can get a few in their hands. As of now, we should just shut the fuck up about our problem and expose the nuts as they fall from the tree by letting the law ferret them out, hopefully before one of them can act again.
  7. I knew a bit about the roads between Wheeling and Bluefield Moon,but never did get below Danville, VA. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zP2PkG0qUVc Think of this as a 48 Ford Flat Head with some work done on it.
  8. Tell me, is this fabulous or what? Talented to say the least and a chance to hear some good vibes. <http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=cqxTUxzOceE&feature=youtube_gdata_plaJ
  9. Just want to add one more thing. You can bet all of your "unpicked boogers" that the gun nuts hope you gun control freaks win the argument. The more you rail about taking guns out of responsible citizens hands, the more they love it.
  10. This was supposed to be the link of the initial post. I wasn't speaking of the other 95% of world population, they are screwed up enough without my help. I was making a distinction between the sanity and insanity of normal people who go off the deep end under extreme pressure, as compared to mental nut cases who are simply determined to kill others for no known reason. And "soccer moms"? I hope they each get a conceal and carry permit.
  11. Since the rationale for using weapons goes back for centuries, I wonder just how many of us truely understand armament and our need for guns? This video will shed some light on honorable and corageous men and women who in many instances gave their everything for our safety here at home. Literally millions of them still walk our streets today with only one thought in mind, "How do I make it through tomorrow"? Other than the thought of doing themselves harm, few if any, think of inflicting suffering on another person. Then, we have a handfull of "Mental Cases" who scheme to kill anyone they deem necessary to slake their appetite for blood, and we want to destroy this heritage to over 300,000,000, the right to bear arms? Are we a sick society or what? Watch this hour long video and compare it with what is going on today. http://www.democracynow.org/2010/11/10/war_torn_1861_2010_new_doc
  12. I suppose there is much more behind my question than just the use of robots. For instance, higher education! It seems everyone today must have a Phd. in one field or another to succeed, when in fact, we can't find employement for those who are already educated? Industry has become so streamlined due to robotics and an increase jn technology that humans are becoming passé or at best, an afterthought. Will our world eventually become classless, other than the extremely wealthy or totally indigent? Or maybe we may all sit around our evening campfires hand in hand singing, "Kumbaya"? As Old Satchmo once put it: What a Wonderful World that would be.
  13. Having worked in robotics for several years and now retired, I was amazed to see the advancements made in them during the past 20 years. Watched 60 Minutes last night and was stunned to see this program. Question is: With unemployeement being what it is today, what will happen with the millions who will shortly become unemployed? http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50138922n
  14. Don't know if this will do you much good, but this gal sems to be having trouble with s/e and her hair. She is living in a very clean enviroment at this time but is due back shortly. Perhaps you might contact her for some help. http://www.wimp.com/orbitaltour/
  15. Money plus tyrannical power and guns are a very dangerous and volatile mix. And a person like the one mentioned in this issue seems to be wanting such a disaster to happen. But I would bet anything her dumb ass is well protected at all times, while those she has put the finger on are simple, law abiding and honest citizens. going about their daily lives just hoping the worst doesn't happen to them. When this trustworthy portion of society is the only well armed people to deal with, then an all out gun ban might be possible. This bitch would probably turn her own mother in for vagrancy. http://pumabydesign001.com/2013/01/11/outting-the-gun-grabbing- propagandists-at-the-journal-news-gracia-c-martore-pres-ceo-of-gannett-co/ Any man who believes he can best be served by letting the Government take care of him had better take a closer look at the American Indian! Political Correctness is the doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is possible to pick up a turd by its clean end. Semper Vigilo, Fortis, Paratus et Fidelis! Always Vigilant, Brave, Prepared and Faithful
  16. You make a good point, but it started long before that. Some interesting information in the below link. While I don't condone such disgusting regulations today, none of us were liviing in the south during that time. But I can understand why plantation overseers or anyone else owning slaves back then wouldn't want such regulations to keep even freed blacks from owning guns. Remember, without the pioneers having guns; the American Indian tribes would have kicked our asses out into the ocean in a heart beat. Given the chance and upper hand, slaves would have done likewise. Today, all we have to worry about are some nuts, a raft of criminals and gang bangers. "WOW" Haven't we turned this land into a beautiful country? http://civilliberty.about.com/od/guncontrol/a/Second-Amendment-History.htm
  17. Quote overtone: Pretending that our current problems are equivalently attributable to "both sides" regardless of who actually did what, is a form of amnesia at best. At best. I believe: How to rewrite our Constitution was the original topic, not how to destroy a nations intregrity. When a political party, regardless of which, becomes so drunk on power as to believe that only they know what's best for our nation, we're in trouble. What has happened is that we have left half of our country's people in limbo just waiting for the right numbers to get their guys back in office. What we need in government is common sense, not comic partisan politics as usual.
  18. My thoughts exactly. Pork barreling, collusion and just "plain old dishonesty" is destroying us as a nation, regardless of whose foot is on the gas pedal.
  19. Likely never. But because of what would then be true state equality, it wouldn't be long before each of the congressmen were giving their cohorts haircuts and shining each others shoes.
  20. I didn't look at my friends verbiage as factual John and have no idea from where he got it. But here are some links that may help you out. The first two, so so. But # 3rd is very revealing. http://news.yahoo.com/history-former-illinois-governors-prison-221100852.html http://www.zerohedge.com/news/piigs-america-illinois-preparing-request-federal-bailout http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/28/Obama-s-Gun-Control-Not-Working-Out-So-Well-In-Chicago
  21. No doubt you're right about 1 man 1 vote. So let each state have 6 congressmen and 2 senators, but all non-partisan. These people are supposedly sent to Washington as a means of protecting and building our nation as a whole, not to subsidize one political party or specific area.
  22. Sort of like looking at a hot horse shoe John. Admonishment can be easily uttered with little or no interest or consequence, unless you're holding the shoe.
  23. While I can't argue the validity for most of your comment, I hope that it is the difference of such opinions that can always be rationally argued. Got this from a conservative friend and even though it isn't esclusively geared to gun control or has been authenticated, I thought it made for a good read. Wow! Is Chicago a great city state, or what? During the past 12 months, 500 people have been killed (murdered) there. Chicago has gun laws which are among the strictest in the United States, allowing only police and military to carry weapons. Yet, Chi Towns gun violence is among the highest if not the highest in America. Let’s take a look at the slate of characters supposedly elected to bring this total mayhem under control. Senator: Dick Durbin House Rep: Jesse Jackson Jr. Governor: Pat Quinn House Leader: Mike Madigan Atty. Gen: Lisa Madigan (Mikes daughter) Mayor: Rahm Emanuel Now, a bit more of Chicago's problems. Their School system is rated as one of the worst in the nation. State Pension Funds are $78 Billion in the red, worst in the U.S.A. Cook County, (Chicago) Sales tax: 10.25% Mr. President, before asking other nations to send us more of their poor, tired and heavy laden to our shores, let's take care of Chicagos problems first. Face it: George Ryan, former Governor is in the “Big house” doing time. His replacement: Rob Blajegovitch is also there wearing pin stripes. Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned, fearing the same. That being said: One thing the “LAND OF LINCOLN” can be proud of. Their “Right To Work Law” is very effective. Even a couple of governors are gainfully employed: Making License Plates for the state of Illinois.
