Do you know any Europeans? I do, a lot of 'em. The first thing that they comment on when they get here is the size of this country. It stuns them. Then they start to figure out why we don't (or didn't) have 8 languages and train service to every village. We are big, very big, and the only other big developed countries that have a size like ours are much more undeveloped than we are. Go to Russia or China or even Canada. Look around, learn something. This is all about Obama wanting more money to buy votes.

I lost all my guns in a fishing accident last week. We got swamped in the Ohio River, a tow pulled too close. I did manage to save my boat and motor. Oh, and my rod, reel and gas tank. But those 25 guns went to the bottom. Just outside Clarksville. Oh, and it wasn't my boat, I borrowed it. From my cousin Bob, or George, or something. I forget.
40% of every Gov spent dollar is borrowed. The only way to balance the budget is to raise taxes to cover that 40%, and then they will just spend more. We're screwed.
I had an accident last week. All my guns, (25), were lost in a fishing accident. I was able to save the boat though. Sorry, nothing to see here.

This is all garbage. Clinton lied to me in my living room. He said he didn't have sex with that woman, then 9 months later he admitted it. When I heard that I turned to my wife and said "We have to get him out of office". If Clinton had told us to mind our own business I might have understood, but no President lies to me in my living room. Bush never lied, he led. And if you think he lied, then tell me the exact quote that was the lie, or shut up!
As long as it's your pennies and my social needs then I agree with you.
The only reason for gun registration is confiscation. Responsible owners don't need to register, irresponsible owner won't.
You're ridiculous. Remember the big fear of violent conservatives before Obama's first election? I do, my liberal sister had Democrat fliers on her coffee table telling the lie that Redneck Radical Republicans were going to kill us all. I reminded her who I was, who her neighbors were, who we all are. She still believed the lies.
Sigh, I am sooo glad we left California for Indiana in 1990. I used to drive across one of the three bridges to get home; The Dumbarton, The San Mateo, The Oakland. Depending on traffic I would take one every day. I am sooooooo glad I no longer live in CA. Not a Hoosier yet, but never again in California. $6 a toll, go to He double L.

Yes, and thank God my sister is a Doctor at our local hospital. I am very resistant to opiates. When I badly burned my arm, the emergency room Doc gave me a big horse shot of dilaudid, which then did nothing. As the Doc started giving me a hard time, my sister came down and had him give me another, and then another. After three shots I was out. They told my wife I would be out for days right before I woke up 3 minutes later. Painless. Without my sister I would've been in agony, for no reason. It never occurred to me that people might injure themselves to get drugs. But that emergency room Doc sees it all the time. Why do we put up with the Government telling Doctors how to practice medicine?
