  1. I'm unshakable. It about time we support our own. Made in USA. In fact I needed a shovel the other day and went to the depot and the USA brand was 2 dollars less. I saw the label and grabbed it.
  2. I did not realize until now that lesbians could produce that much gas. Who knew?

  5. Republicans Want to Cut Food Stamp Rolls by 20 percent say House Democrats House Democrats, still reeling from a historic tax win on the right, say Republicans are working to cut the social safety net by kicking 8 million, about 20 percent of all participants, off of the food stamps program. Negotiations broke down over the Farm Bill, which is mostly comprised of nutrition programs, after the proposed Republican cuts were leaked. In addition to lowering the rolls, the plan would increase the work requirement age limit from 60 to 65. The approximate $1 billion saved each month from the cuts will go to states to create job training initiatives, say Democrats. “We have grown increasingly concerned about the nutrition policies being pushed by the Majority. Items you have outlined in your meetings with us and that have been reported in the press are a significant cause of concern,” 19 Democratic House Committee on Agriculture members wrote in a joint letter to ranking member Congressman Collin Peterson Thursday. The Committee members said they held 23 hearings on the future of food stamps, and no changes as radical as the ones outlined by Peterson were mentioned. They expressed concern about being asked to negotiate on the nuances of the bill without having seen the full text. The group asked Peterson to refrain from further negotiation until Congressman Mike Conaway, Committee Chairman, shared the full text of the bill. Read the rest at:
  6. Looks like a well mannered CA democrat. BTW I did not vote for him/her/it, etc....
  7. Kennesaw, Georgia, population 33,672, adopted an ordinance in 1982 requiring the head of every household to “maintain a firearm.” Kennesaw has only witnessed one murder in the past six years. In other words, just the common knowledge that guns are in the hands of law-abiding citizens appears to restrain the actions of criminals. Kennesaw Police Department Lt. Craig Graydon said, “It was meant to be kind of a crime deterrent.” At the same time, Graydon noted that widespread private gun ownership is just part of the reason for the town’s violent crime rate of less than two percent. He described the requirement to own a gun as part of “the whole picture.” But Mayor Derek Easterling (R) focused on armed law-abiding citizens, stating, “If you’re going to commit a crime in Kennesaw and you’re the criminal — are you going to take a chance that that homeowner is a law-abiding citizen?” News of Kennesaw’s low violent crime rate and the fact that they have only seen one murder in six years come at a time when Democrats in D.C. are working their hardest to further restrict the ability to own firearms.
  8. My ol' man asked me when I was 8 if I wanted to go hunting. I said yes. He told be to start saving my money because I was not going to use his. I worked like a dog and got my 1st rifle when I was 9, $78.00 for a lever action 30/30. I got my 1st deer when I was 10. How about that?
  9. We The People.... Gun sales are surging after the Florida school shooting that killed 17 students and staff members. Criminal background checks for gun sales rose 3.5% in Florida in the month of February, Bloomberg reports. Background checks for long guns, which includes assault-style rifles like the one used in the Parkland school shooting, surged 12.6% in the state. Sales of assault-style rifles are surging in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting that killed 17 students and staff members Criminal background checks for gun sales — a key metric for estimating the demand for guns — rose 3.5% in Florida in the month of February, compared to the previous year, Bloomberg reports. Background checks for long guns, which includes assault-style rifles like the one used in the Parkland school shooting, surged 12.6% in the state. Nationwide, that metric rose 3%. Gun sales typically surge after mass shootings, due to rising fears over tightening gun controls. But under President Donald Trump, gun sales have slowed — a trend that has been called the "Trump slump" — because he's seen as supportive of the gun industry. The recent rush of demand for guns indicates that "fear-based buying" is back, according to KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst Brett Andress. It "starts to beg the question: Is fear-based buying back? Given all the recent headlines and rhetoric, we would argue yes, for the moment," Andress wrote in a research note.
  10. NRA Just got another 500K new members this month.
  11. Cops Were Possible Shooters in Parkland (Helicopter captured four cops emerging from school with heavy bag containing body armor.) Erick made a video compilation of evidence of Numerous Eye Witnesses to Multiple Shooters in Florida. It has since been removed. Here is his transcript which contains evidence that Sheriff Israel's men may actually be the shooters. 1. At: (07:23 - 08:17) There are four (4) sheriffs/law enforcement officers (whose faces can be seen on the video) (two of which) are carrying a heavy bag out of the school. You can also see them here The bag was apparently so heavy it took two officers to carry it. A third officer can be seen lowering the tailgate on what looks like a White Late Model Ford 4 Door (crew cab) pickup truck with a 6 foot bed; again, apparently because the other two officers (carrying the bag) could not just simply lift the heavy bag over the side and throw it in the back bed of the truck. Note, This is evidence of officers tampering with a crime scene and evidence at one of the biggest crimes of the decade, with national / international significance. These officers faces can be clearly seen on the video. 2. Teacher Stacey Lippel (ABC News) (00:00 - 01:28) Stacey Lippel teacher: " I suddenly saw the shooter about 20 feet from me. Standing in the hall way, actively shooting down the hallway, just a barrage of bullets. And I'm staring at him thinking... Why is the police here? This is strange. Because he's in full metal garb... helmet, face mask, bullet proof armor, shooting this rifle that I've never seen before. " Stacey Lippel, teacher got "nicked" with bullet. 3. Student, black haired girl (with blond haired friend) (WPTV) (01:29 - 02:09) "He was screaming. I thought it was a joke. He must not be... cause they told us like they were going to have a fake... and you know have people taken away and have them scream or whatever... Q. Interviewer: Like in a school drill? A. Student, Girl shakes her head yes, then says: "Like a drill... but I just figured it was that but it was so real... I could hear his voice..." 4. Student, Connor Dietrich, black haired boy holding mike, wearing maroon hoody sweatshirt, Black tee shirt, being interviewed by Streaked Blond CNN woman reporter: (CNN) ( 02:10 - 02:24) Student, Connor Dietrich: "I heard shots... I thought it was a drill, because they told us they were going to have police officers firing blanks scare us, getting us trained for this... no one took it seriously when I heard screaming... the worst screaming you will ever hear... it was awful like..." ---- 5. Student, black haired girl #2 hair in bun, gray sweet shirt (KPRC channel 2 ) (02:45 - 03:30) Student, girl: "...that's when because the other shooter was coming up..." Interviewer (KPRC channel 2) Q: "So you think there was more than one shooter?" A: Student, girl: "...there was three shooters... your right... I saw some other kids going down the other way then stopping because the other shooter was coming." ---- 6. Unseen boys being interviewed and speaking: (03:31 - 03:56) "They told us about a drill before where they were going to be shooting blanks." ---- 7. Senior student, Alexa Miednik blond girl (04:00 - 05:34) Senior student, Alexa Miednik: "After coming out of the bathroom... as I was going down the stairs I heard a couple of shots fired, everyone was freekin out, saying that it was a gun. (Alexa Miednik--"I was talking to Cruz and shots were coming from another part of the building." Reports that this woman is a plant as well. Strange she would be cotradicting the official story.) And um as we were walking, the whole class together, I actually was speaking to the [she puts her fingers up, as to put her statement in quotation marks] "suspect' Nicholas Cruz, and as I was speaking to him, he seemed very... I don't know what the word I want to say is. [perhaps... it seems... Cruz did not know what was coming down / meaning perhaps he was not part of the shooting] But um... he was trouble in middle school, so I kind of joked about it and said: I'm surprised you weren't the one who did it." [Why would she "joke" and say she was surprised he was "not the one who did it" if he had a gun? He apparently did not have a gun.] And he just gave me a: "Hua?" So ah that's really what happened." Q: Interviewer: "Really? You were walking down the hall. He had already fired at that time. [Notice how the interviewer uses a leading question, making a statement: "He had already fired at that time." Senior Student, Alexa Miednik did not say that.] A: Senior Student, Alexa Miednik: "Yes sir it was him." [Senior Student, Alexa Miednik did not say: "Yes" that she saw him fire, or "Yes" that she even saw him with a gun, she simply stated: "Yes" she was positively walking and talking to Nicolas Cruz. Q: Interviewer: "Weren't you scared." A: Senior Student, Alexa Miednik: "In the moment, I wasn't. Because there was obviously, there was definitely another shooter involved." [and she "apparently" did not see Nicholas Cruz with a gun or shooting anyone] Q: Interviewer: "Oh you think he was not the "only" one?" [again, Senior Student, Alexa Miednik did not say he was "the one" she actually said: she "was surprised it wasn't him." A: Senior Student Alexa Miednik: "No. Definitely not." Q: Interviewer: "Why do you say that?" A: Senior Student Alexa Miednik: "Um... Because when shots were fired, I saw him after the fact. So... And the shots were coming from the other part of the building. So there definitely had to be two shooters involved. I believe." [maybe more]
  12. Coordinated I'll say. Alex was the one with the Big Balls to fly a banner around the DNC convention that said Hillarious for Prison.
