    yeah , its wonderful ..

    gun crime is up 4000% ( no exageration)

    knife crime , beyond the limits of reporting

    new crime called home invasion whereby someone with a gun kicks your door in and takes what they want at gunpoint or knife point

    while if caught they get 18 months at most maybe 5 years for killing someone with a illegal gun , a guy who does not lock his gun safe gets 5 years ..

    write a bad check to the government and you'll get 8 years

    yeah its wonderful and folks wonder why i fight all this so hard ...

    but to be honest some days .. i really just think **** it and think if i headed bush and never saw another person i'd be just fine

    today 40,000 government employee's march to protect their cushy payments , but try getting folks to march to defend their rights of gun ownership or self defence , it take months of hard work to sort , but it took the socialist a week to get 40,000 marching over $1:05 a week

    we been brainwashed too long

    I read some time ago that the crooks firearm of choice in a # of areas where all guns are banned is the submachine gun since penalties aren't much different for firearms offenses. JR :eek::eek::eek:

    It‘s a shame that we can’t ban the pointy-headed idiots in City Hall.

    Remember: It’s no fun being stupid unless you can prove it publicly.

    City Hall is packed with people having fun (as is the State House).



    I say go ahead and ban them. Starting with the 2 boneheads in the video. No more steak knife for them. No more knife in kitchen, anywhaere.

    No more razor blade too. No more shave face or legs. Hairy pits for you ladies.
