This is where l part company with many on this thread. I sell to them. Period. If they are Americans, with the correct paperwork and no infractions that would disqualify them, you sell to them as you would to any other American. Granted, 99% of world terrorist these days wear tablecloths on their head, if they are Americans with no restrictions, you sell to them, just as you would one of the boys from Duck Dynasty. If they use these weapons against someone is a crime, you kill them on Friday, their sabbath. You do it publically and with much fanfare, just as they would do in Riyadh. We should be doing this anyway!!
God Bless this American Hero's family and friends. Thank you for your sacrifice to our nation by paying the ultimate price. May God hold you close to His heart.
Good Posts, All of them!! It is not going to take too long for us to see the effects of our current Administration. And yes, mr Levy, l agree, the poor are going to suffer the most. And on top of that, they are going to be sorely confused....what went wrong, they will say.
Thatcher, how are you my friend? I hope you and yours had a great weekend. We sure did, nice weather and sunshine on our fresh fallen snow. Well, you are 100% correct on Jimmy Carter. One of our greatest Presidents, AFTER HE LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE!!! He as a pitiful President, but a really good man. I served under his administration, and while it was a good party, we were not prepared for the world we lived in. He did nothing good for Alaska nor oil production. If left up to him, we would live n a huge park.
This is the single thing that convinced me to go "play army" and join the Air Force many years ago. We played with the guerrillas in Pineland, and worked with these exercises for a number of years. My dad had the gas station on the corner in West End, and he would put a camper up there and we would have the CyOps officer there printing materials to spread all over. I remember men of my Dad's age, all meeting in an abandoned tobacco barn down on hwy. 73 with the officers of the guerrillas. This was during the VietNam war, and it was a big thing. Such fond memories of Moore County (Pineland) and the US Army. Many of these young men went to southeast Asia and never came home. They were strong, brave heros, yet were just Americans that served their country.
Jesus lived 33 yrs. Dr. King lived 48 l think. They were both subjected to violent deaths. Both could have been protected by semi-auto rifles. As far as not wanting to "blow them away, or fill them with 30 rds", I disagree. If someone is looking to cause me harm, the only reason l would fill them with 30 holes is because l did not have 31 bullets!! I want to shoot them until they quit moving, until they are no longer a threat, and even to my demise, until l get tired of shooting them. I will not bother you or your stuff, do not try to harm me.
JimT, Yes we chill up here. And at least, for the most part, we are safe and secure with our guns and our food and our situation in life. We do have room for some more, and l would welcome many of the posters on here, from both sides of the fence. If you go back, you will see that l have not bashed the President very badly. I disagree with the direction he is trying to take our country, and wonder how in this world so many otherwise good Americans are following his lead. When it comes to the sequester, he has been so disingenuous that l am starting to think of him as a liar and a manipulating liar. It is so very obvious that these "cuts" were just cuts in the INCREASE of the spending, and as a govt. we are going to be spending more this coming year than we did in the previous. I now become one of the people that are totally displeased with this man as our President. Impeachment, that might be a step too far, but he needs to be reigned in and held in check the rest of his term.
And Spocks Brain, l do not know what ever gave you the idea that we support the President. He IS the President of all of us, but l disagree with most everything he is doing. As far as religion, that is a private thing between you and whomever you feel is your higher being. If that is God the father, son and holy ghost, so be it, but you do not need to preach to us. If you are correct, God will judge us someday just as he will you. so you can let it be, and be happy with your relationship with your supreme being. I will do likewise.
You know Jim you are right. My doctor is a very very good doctor IMHO. He is sought out constantly for advice on medical issues. That said, if he is recreationally using cocaine, that is none of my business. I would not stop going to him....l still trust him with my life.
Thanks Thatcher, it kind of makes me think back to the scripture about "Judge not the ye be not judged" At any rate, everyone's relationship with their creator is their business, and none of ours. I'm with you, being an "apologist" for myself and the rest of the world. Be well, my friend.
