Some Random Thoughts on the Election

“And I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, ‘Come and see,’ and I looked and beheld a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”—from The Book of Revelation

“It is already dark in Moscow, and soon it will be dark here. I wonder: shall we see the light again in our lifetimes?”—Freidrich Wilhelm Kritzinger, in the movie Conspiracy

*It could have been worse. We could have gotten Hillary, and with her the same politics as Obama plus that voice braying at us for four years. On the other hand, I will miss the excellent antics of Bubba turned loose in the White House with no one in charge of him.

*Obama says he respects the Second Amendment.  And I am Ferdinand, King of Romania.

*We are probably not going to see any gun legislation for a while. Obama and Biden will have their hands full with the coming depression and our two wars, plus energy, plus who knows what else. Also, it will take Congress a while to figure out who is who in the pecking order, who gets to steal what and how much, etc.

*Eventually, however, they will get brave and propose something really hellish in the way of gun legislation. This may not come until Obama’s second term, assuming he gets one, but it will be a doozer.

*When it does come, if there is a fight over it, we can take some small comfort from the fact that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are two of the most ineffectual people ever to suck on the public tit.

*A gun dealer friend called and said that this past Saturday was the biggest day he has had in over 30 years in business. Much of what he sells is black rifles in one form or another, plus Class III goodies. “All the liberals who voted for Obama are scared to death they won’t be able to get guns once he takes office,” he says.

*In the weeks to come, we are likely to see an unprecedented run on any semi-automatic or quasi-military gun, plus magazines, ammo, and anything else that Joe Biden may not want us to have. As I’ve said before, hoard now and beat the rush.

*At the suggestion of one of our more intelligent contributors, I am appointing Ms. Elisha Cuthbert the Official Gun Nut Babe.

*Smile. What else can you do?

"A little revolution now and then is a good thing."
Thomas Jefferson

The second amendment is now even more important with the national media so obviously biased and easily bought instead of being objective and the watchdogs for society.
The founding fathers included the second amendment (from long experience with the British) so politicians could not take away the other rights.

Clay Cooper

Gritz, what planet ar you from?
I went to public schools when God and Country meant something and the Teacher didn’t put up with any crap with any of the students.
In a nut shell, I’m a Neal Boortz Lebertarian that voted Republican, any questions!

By the way Gritz, you shouldn’t stereo type people, because obviously you don’t have a clue who you’re dealing with here! The type of people here will go into a burning building to save your sorry ass!

Clay Cooper

“There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the [German] people were not brainwashed about gun ownership and had been well armed. ... Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half-starved group of Jews took 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazis.”
-Theodore Haas, Dachau Survivor

Clay Cooper

“America is at that awkward stage; it's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
-Claire Wolfe, 1995-Nov

“This country is a one-party country. Half of it is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn't make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians.”
-Hugh Downs, 1997 (not really true, but the point is worth hearing)

“We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the Complete Works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.”
-Robert Wilensky, Digital Library Project, Prof. of Computer Science, University of California

“People only see what they are prepared to see.”

“The mistake Republicans have made over the years is treating Democrats like adults.”
-Ann Coulter, 2001-Feb-14, at the 28th Annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Crystal City, Virginia

“As an avid sportsman and as Governor of the State of Louisiana, I have been extremely interested in the recent politically-motivated lawsuits against your industry, especially the ill-advised suit by the mayor of New Orleans. I know I speak for the majority of Louisiana citizens and businessmen when I say that lawsuits such as these are very, very wrong. It is wrong to blame the responsible manufacturer of a legitimate and non-defective product for the criminal use of that product. It is wrong to ignore your industry's success in support of firearms education and accident prevention and to dismiss the role of your industry in providing quality products for hunting, target shooting, self-protection and law enforcement.”
-Louisiana Governor M. J. "Mike" Foster, in a letter to the National Shooting Sports Foundation urging them to hold The 2001 Shot Show in New Orleans

“If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same [...] They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section [...] they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.”

“On March 5, 1991 Bonnie Elmasri called a firearms instructor, worried that her husband - who was subject to a restraining order to stay away from her - had been threatening her and her children. When she asked the instructor about getting a handgun, the instructor explained that Wisconsin has a 48-hour waiting period. Ms. Elmasri and her two children were murdered by her husband twenty-four hours later.”

“I don't care if you want to hunt. I don't care if you think it's your right. I say: `Sorry, it's 1999. We have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison.'”
-Television talk-show host Rosie O'Donnell

-Jon Dougherty of WorldNetDaily, the opening paragraph of a 2001-Feb-5 article

“So what is the first thing he would do to decrease violent behavior? Quick answer. `We've got to dismantle the NRA.' And what to do with Charlton Heston? `Shoot him - with a .44-caliber bulldog," he says with a laugh.”

I agree with Mr. Dick McPlenty from 5 November. You are absolutely correct. In 90% of the non-scripted photo shoots of obammy it was nothing but fat white female trash and other assorted creatures without the brains that God gave a goose. Three months before the election I decided to start burying my assorted products in weatherproof and watertight containers in various places around a large body body of water that is fenced off by a certain city. Since the season was just right for the land to be nice and easy to stick a shovel into and when the rains and snow come the dirt will blend right into it's natural state within a month or so. A detailed map was drawn up along with certain marking near the site. I recommend this be done by as many people have the capability to do this (and brains) It is a VERY bad time for our country and not a time to tread lightly. If you have a CCW, CARRY DAMN IT !! There are going to be certain members of congress who are going to 'go with the flow' just to avoid problems or negative feedback in their home state.
I also recommend that you stock up on handgun ammunition, especially 9mm and .45 as this will become quite expensive. Also if you have an 'assault weapon' stock up on new production ammunition (not surplus if you can afford it)..Russian Wolf is a good choice as it comes in various calibers.
Good luck, and good huunting (when the time comes)

The Brady Bunch alread has a list of wants that has been presented to Pelosi so they can have the laws ready for Jan 21 for BO to sign first thing in the morning. Count on it, the other problems in the world are just a minor incovience compared to what is planned for taking away the second ammendment. Once that is done they can rape the constitution at will.

Any state that requires you to have a permit to carry a weapon is in violation of the Second Ammendment. Any form of government interferrence is an infringement and having to register yourself for a permit and submit to fees and photograps is an infringment. Any time limit on such a permit is an infringment. Think about it, the second ammendment is violated daily and with support from the Supreme Court.


AMEN to the last post.
