Why Liberals and Democrats hate me:

5. The second amendment protects my right to protect myself.
6. Your religion, see number 3.
7. We all know about smoking so please smoke, less people collecting social security and more taxes in the public coffers.
8. My drinking is my business, my drinking and driving is your business.
9. There is no such thing as a single mother. You are widowed, divorced or unmarried.
10. Gay, straight, or bisexual. I DON'T CARE and neither should you. I won't ask or tell.
11. Serving in the Military is an honorable way to earn a living and grow up fast or grow up period.

13. The war on poverty is the war on dignity, we have lost both.
14. A hard working poor man does not stay that way for long.
15. I drive a big truck because I like it and can afford it. See number 3.
16. Rotten children come from rotten parents.
17. If your religion celebrates death, we all have a problem.
18. Marriage is a union of a man and women, the rest can be decided legally.
19. My job is to raise my children to be adults, not my friends.
20. Welfare, food stamps, and unemployment are a lazy and shameful excuse.
21. If you sold it to me and I cannot afford it, we are both fools that should suffer equally.
22. America is STILL the best god damned country on earth, if it wasn't why does everyone want to come here?
23. Illegal aliens are not welcome, come in the front door or stay home.
24. You cannot tax your way to prosperity.

26. Men and women are different, stop trying to make them equal, we are not or never intended to be.
27. Marriage is all about choices, choose well and the rest falls into place.
28. Government only does one thing well, print money. Everything else it F*&$s up.
29. If you think I owe you something for slavery, you are a slave to your own past and the race baiting poverty pimps you follow.
30. I do not suffer white guilt.
31. We are all Americans, hyphens are a sign of your insecurity.
32. Tree Huggers and the US Forest service have killed more trees and animals than all the loggers in history combined.
33. If you act in a movie it makes you an actor, not an expert in the affairs of real men and women.More as I think of them.
I am sure this little girl won't be a victim...........
Democratic Speaker demonstrates her party policy of absolute idiocy........

WHY WE OWN WHAT WE OWN
We all own guns for different reasons…collecting, self-defense, competition…at least these are the reasons that we’ll admit to. But some of us accumulate a variety of firearms, including military-style weapons and related equipment, for reasons that may seem unfathomable to non gun owners. Why would a professional golfer need an assault vest with a drop-down thigh holster and a fully tricked-out M4? Why would a software engineer need a 33-round magazine designed for a full-auto Glock 18? Many in the media and the general public ask “Why does anyone need an assault rifle?” Let’s take a look at some of the scenarios which many gun owners wisely prepare for.
We’ve all seen movies where the dead return to life and walk the earth in search of human flesh to feed upon. If this were to actually occur, a Mini-14 or AR-15 with a dozen 30-round magazines (or better yet, a Beta C-Mag) would be awfully handy. And you will definitely need some sort of optic, since we all know that the only way to put down a zombie is with a head shot. A pair of Glocks with 33-round “monopod” magazines will be useful if you are trapped in an enclosed area and have to engage the undead at point blank range. High power rifles and shotguns will do the job, but they are unnecessarily powerful for the task of disabling zombie brain stems and are handicapped by their limited magazine capacity. If necessary, hole up in a Wal-Mart Supercenter instead of a shopping mall…these small-town economic Death Stars have everything necessary for survival, including food, medical supplies, guns and ammunition.
When our government becomes co-opted by the U.N. and our skies are darkened by black helicopters, the conspiracy theory kooks will be screaming a collective “I told you so!” When that happens, the AR-15 will be the hands-down favorite of the American insurgency, although an SKS or Winchester 94 will do in a pinch. A completely accessorized M4 or AK-47 will be invaluable if you plan on attacking and seizing a National Guard Armory…or a grocery store. And you will need an assault vest or web gear to tote your equipment when you venture out to ambush an enemy column or to patrol your rebel-controlled subdivision.
Escaped Circus/Zoo Animal
This is the premise that those of us who don’t hunt can use to justify to our spouses the purchase of a high power hunting-type rifle. With the exception of very large animals such as elephants and hippos, a .30-06 or 7mm Mag should be able to put down just about any species you’re likely to encounter in the Ringling Brothers menagerie or at the local zoo. A Marlin Guide Gun chambered in .45-70 with full-power loads should prove just as effective at close range, and would also seem to be the ideal rifle to bring along on a hunt for Bigfoot or the Chupacabra.
Rise of the Machines
When robots run amok and your toaster tries to kill you, a .30 battle rifle will be the weapon of choice. The .223 round cannot be counted on to reliably penetrate the combat chassis of a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Terminator, but sustained fire (especially with armor-piercing ammo) from an M1A or an FN-FAL may do the trick. An M1 Garand should prove to be a capable alternative as long as you have enough clips. Handguns will generally only be effective on very small machines such as blenders and CD players, but 12 gauge 00 buckshot should be capable of taking out any major home appliance and most push-type lawn mowers. Use slugs on riding mowers and lawn tractors.
In this scenario, a rifle of the AR/AK/Mini-14 variety and a brace of good quality sidearms will probably be your best bet for keeping marauding bands of looters and starving neighbors from getting their hands on your five-year supply of MRE’s. But exterminating giant mutant insects and/or rodents may require something with a little more oomph. Depending on the size and tenacity of the irradiated vermin, repeating rifles suitable for hunting large dangerous game, such as a Remington 700 chambered in .375 H&H Mag., should do the job on anything up to the size of an Orkin truck. And coating the bullets with Raid or filling hollowpoints with rat poison can’t hurt. If, however, you run into a spider that’s as big as a house, see the section below on dealing with Dinosaurs.
Taking on a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex is probably beyond the capabilities of the average gun owner, but if you have a Barrett Light 50 or better yet, an M2 mounted on an armored Humvee, this should be adequate. A hardcore “White Hunter, Black Heart” type of outdoorsman may try his luck with a fine double rifle in .600 Nitro Express or an 8-bore, but I personally would rather have more than two shots to prevent me from becoming cholesterol in the arteries of a giant carnivore. The 30mm chain gun on an Apache attack helicopter will work best in this situation, but a LAW rocket or RPG should be effective as well. Raptors, on the other hand, can generally be dispatched with 12 gauge slugs at close range, or any other caliber suitable for taking bear-sized game.
Vampires and Werewolves
Destroying creatures of the night can be an expensive proposition, as any firearm projectile used must be composed of silver. Pawn shop owners who handload and cast their own bullets have a distinct advantage here. Projectiles merely plated with silver, such as buckshot pellets and pistol bullets, may prove to be a cost-effective alternative to solid silver projectiles, but it is unknown if this method can deliver enough silver nitrate into the monster to result in a fatal wound. Any pistol cartridge capable of reaching the FBI’s minimum acceptable penetration depth should be sufficient for defeating vampires, but werewolves, by virtue of their generally larger size and greater muscle mass, may require a centerfire rifle cartridge to reliably pierce their thick hides and return them to Hell. Winchester Silvertips are NOT effective, as their tips are not actually made of silver. And leave the fancy sword-play to Blade, unless you don’t mind being exsanguinated.
According to the conventional wisdom of Hollywood, the military forces of the world will be easily swept aside by the technologically superior weapons of an invading humanoid alien species. The aliens themselves, however, generally appear to be vulnerable to small arms fire. Depending on just how fragile their bodies are, any military-style rifle chambered in .223, 7.62x39 or .308 should be satisfactory for waging an interplanetary insurgency and ensuring that only humans get to deplete the earth’s natural resources. If, however, the aliens turn out to be allergic to water or some other liquid that is harmless to us, then Super Soakers and water balloons will be the armament of choice. In any case, a 12 gauge shotgun loaded with 00 buck is preferable to a baseball bat or kitchen knives.
Some might say that this kind of thinking is paranoid. But being prepared for these kinds of situations, in addition to being prudent, is just plain fun. Besides, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that someone…or something… isn’t out to get you. I have to go now…I can hear my dogs barking, so I need to go put on my body armor and find my night vision goggles. Lock and load, baby!
I did not write this, if it makes me sound crazy then good. I will list source when I find it. That or we own guns for phallic compensation...............
Americans won't do. This video was shot here in Tucson yesterday. Illegal aliens and those that support them beating an effigy of Sherrif Joe Arpaio. This is how they feel about law enforcement and those upholding the law.
See the piece of illegal alien crap Derechos Humanos Co-Chair Isabel Garcia, at the end of the video holding the head effigy? She works for the Pima County legal department. There is a movement to have her head...............Her job at the very least.......Muy estupido chica!
I picked up an Ithaca Model 900 semi-auto the other day for $200 bucks. not bad looking and a great price. You never know when you might NEED ONE
Mike Monsoor, a Navy EOD Technician, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for jumping on a grenade in Iraq , giving his life to save his fellow Seals.
During Mike Monsoor's funeral in San Diego, as his coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, SEALs were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two's, with the coffin moving up the center. As Mike's coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin.
The slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it. This was a fitting send-off for a warrior hero.
This should be front-page news instead of the crap we see everyday.
Since the media won't make this news, I choose to make it news by forwarding it onto you guys. I am damn proud of our military. If you are proud too, please pass this on. If not then rest assured that these fine men and women of our military will continue to serve and protect.
You want the truth? YOU can't handle the truth!
"Like I said, I won't change your mind, and that's fine. But anyone tallying facts vs invective clearly sees that "Pitman" is an empty, malicious, deceptive, racist rant. And your responses are mindless parroting of Fox News/Karl Rove TPs. Everything I've said, on the other hand, can be verified. Facts are on my side. Reality is my ally because it terrifies conservatives."
The facts according to Barleymash:
Karl Rove sprang from Agent Scully's vagina
9/11 was an inside job by GWB and Ross Perot
Making 100 Million dollars off the religion of Global Warming does not make you a fraud, it makes you a genius!
Making money off the evil oil companies is bad, unless it is Occidental Petroleum
The United Nations is not full of Tin horn dictators, despots and anti-semites
Criminals don't kill people, guns kill people
Guevera, Castro, and Chavez are the real heros
If it is bad for America, it should be celebrated
So what if the Kyoto treaty excludes India and China, they have excellent enviromental records.
Being a Poly Sci major and working at Starbucks is all you need to get the facts right
GWB caused Hurricane Katrina so he could kill black people
If you don't go to college you will end up stuck in Iraq
Hillary Clinton is a cattle futures trading genius
Harry Reid is a land developing Guru
Islam is a race so criticizing it is racist
Listening to a hate America, hate whitey diatribe for twenty years and not being offended makes you a saint not a sinner
Welfare and Social Security are prime examples of how well government works
Billions on education is working, the test scores are getting lower so billions more will solve everything
NPR and PBS are not biased Liberal soapboxes
We are entitled to free health care especially when we we live a deviant or unhealthy lifestyle
Playing D&D in my Masters of the Universe jammies gives me real world experience
and on and on..........................
I now have three new Colts in the stable.................A Gun Fearing Wussy nightmare!
Actually, they are a 1917 USGI, 1918 USGI and a 1980 Series 70 with real Elephant Ivory grips! Buy what you can before B Hussein O gets into office.
FACTUAL, OBJECTIVE READ
For anyone who wants to play the Middle East game in the interest of our
great Nation in an objective and balanced way, they should know these
are the views of the 'best and brightest' in the business who have 'been
there and done that.' For your information and hope you become
Sub: Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman's Views, Semper Fi!
This 'Letter of Apology' was written by Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman,
US Marine Corps, Retired:
For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue. On
the one hand, right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the
actions while on the other hand, political glee will take control and
fashion this minor event into some modern day massacre.
I humbly offer my opinion here:
I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and
sacrificed the blood of our youth; it was in the defense of Muslims
(Bosnia, Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.)
I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came
I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were
I am sorry that most Arabs and Muslims have to live in squalor under
I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.
I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their
religious schools, mosques, and
I am sorry that Yasser Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and
high-jacked the Palestinian 'cause.'
I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer more than a
token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.
I am sorry that the U. S. A. has to step in and be the biggest financial
supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs
blame the USA for all their problems.
I am sorry that our own left wing, our media, and our own brainwashed
liberal masses do not understand any of this (from the misleading vocal
elements of our society like radical liberal professors, CNN and NY
I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the
'food for oil' money so they could get rich while the common folk
I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide
bombers upon their death.
I am sorry that those same bombers are brainwashed into thinking they
will receive 72 virgins in 'paradise.'
I am sorry that the homicide bombers think pregnant women, babies,
children, the elderly and other non-combatant civilians are legitimate
I am sorry that our troops die to free more Arabs from the gang rape
rooms and the filling of mass graves of dissidents of their own making.
I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other
I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control
of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state.
I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen Daisy cutters on Fallujah.
I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient 'Holy
I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade
Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church - one of our Holy Sites.
I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole,
the embassy bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg and Daniel
I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized
village in Africa.
America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those
responsible because that is what we do.
I am sorry that Barack Hussein Obama may be elected president of the
United States when he doesn't have a clue on how to be a strong
Commander-in-chief in a world filled with Muslim extremists who will do
whatever it needs to do to destroy the lives of civilized people while
killing innocent men, women and children in order to bring a change that
is beneficial to all Islamic terrorists worldwide.
I am sorry that voters on the liberal left don't understand the
frightening changes that are taking place in the Muslim world and what
these changes will do to this world in which we live.
I am sorry that the Democratic Party has been highjacked by Socialists
and Communists right under the very noses of those who take pride in
calling themselves democrats.
We hang out our dirty laundry for the entire world to see. We move on.
That's one of the reasons we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff
like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.
Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news, we
were like - so what?
We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners. Sure, it was wrong,
sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were trying
to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to wring our hands
because a few were humiliated?
Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people
killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating
If you want an apology from this American, you're going to have a long
wait! You have a better chance of finding those seventy-two virgins.
Signed, Chuck Pitman

Your comment could not be submitted due to questionable content: I support neither Bush or McCain, I am not even a republican. But if you think Obama is the messiah we are done as a country. He is an arrogant, ignorant Marxist. A Racist opportunist that cannot speak without a teleprompter or think without handlers. I have been buying, gold, guns and ammo. I have an off the grid place I can move to and went 92% liquid in the market a year ago. Bush is a monumental failure, but he will look like Abe Lincoln, if Obama is elected. He has that Jimmy Carter Misery index all warmed up again. Ever since Harry and Nancy took over, we have gone down the tubes. Now go stand in line and wait for all the new entitlements you have been promised like the good little commie that you are. I am a conservative, not a right winger. I want the as little as possible from the government. Billy Budd
