    Perhaps I'm not a pure Conservative, just mainly Conservative. Do people who consider themselves Liberals, believe in everything Liberal?
    So you want the Federal government to defund welfare programs so that the burden falls on the states? What would that accomplish? I don't get it. (Feel free to start another thread on the subject if you don't want to derail this one. I promise I'll stop in.)

    i was gonna say something to excels' demonizations of obama on that...ahem...states rights issue he suddenly isn't in favor of...

    but the mod beat me to it: excellent, ms mod ...i bow to your superior intelligence

    i'm begining to think that whomever it was that posted the chris rock bit hit the nail on the head...at $5000 a bullet...problem solved

    i'm warming up to the idea of only muskets and single shot, reloadable weapons every day: as any enthusiast knows, while they might've been more accurate back-in-the-day...they are nowhere near as accurate as current technologies...

    it'll put the 'sport' back into hunting !!

    who'd be against that, right ...certainly not the deer !

    in fact...i'm thinking of starting up a new company to sell faux coonskin caps !

    ...call 'em Booneskin Caps : Be Kith 'n kin With Dan'l B...A Better Part Of History !

    nah...i just get these stray thoughts...

    i really should just let them go...but, for some reason...they call to me...seductively

    if i were lost at sea...they'd be my mermaids....

    when i was piloting the titanic ?? i know that guy yelled 'iceberg, dead ahead !'

    but i swear what i heard was 'pretty maidens giving hea..." oh...never mind

    I don’t get where the conflict is in my answer.

    Primarily, President Obama administration's method of governance by executive order is troubling to say the least. I guess the power-hungry administration… who seemingly never met a legal restriction they couldn’t waterboard until it got them what they wanted is troubling to conservatives as it is a usurpation of legislative power by the executive branch.

    Not taking the bait on that one. This thread is about gun control. If you want to start a separate thread, I'm sure you'd get plenty of responses.

    Anyone seen this video?



    I guess many of Hollywood’s convictions only emerge once the coffers are filled.

    This has been lots of fun, but I am having trouble following all of the moving parts that don't seem to connect to anything else. TTFN.
