He can’t be called a “liberal” (“the same names and labels they pin on everyone,” as Obama puts it); his toughness on the war on terror can’t be questioned (“attempts to play on our fears”); his extreme positions on social issues can’t be exposed (“the same efforts to distract us from the issues that affect our lives” and “turn us against each other”); and his Chicago background too is off-limits (“pouncing on every gaffe and association and fake controversy”). Besides that, it should be a freewheeling and spirited campaign.I definitely don't want to be divisive! That's why I want to be right up front and say b-HO is a discount socialist who has put forth an agenda that will lead to the destruction of the America we love. He wants to take our guns and, if elected, will do his best to gut the Second Amendment. That's not to divisive, is it? It's the truth.
Democrats always want cultural issues not to matter because they are on the least-popular side of many of them, and want patriotic symbols like the Pledge of Allegiance and flag pins to be irrelevant when they can’t manage to nominate presidential candidates who wholeheartedly embrace them (which shouldn’t be that difficult). As for “fear” and “division,” they are vaporous pejoratives that can be applied to any warning of negative consequences of a given policy or any political position that doesn’t command 100 percent assent. In his North Carolina speech, Obama said the Iraq war “has not made us safer,” and that McCain’s ideas are “out of touch” with “American values.” How fearfully divisive.
I had great fun today blasting away with my "Respect My Authority" Winchester X2...what can I say? THIS YEAR, I swear, I'm going to address this SHOTGUN THING. I talked to my friend Allen Treadwell, who is just a brilliant young shotgun shooter, and Olympic shotgun master Haley Dunn, who's also way cute, about coming out to Colorado this summer to film an episode of SHOOTING GALLERY on torturing me into learning the shotgun...they're up for it, although it will probably kill me.
Jeff over at Alphecca is shopping for cheap assault weapons:
Reader Participation Time. I’ve got several firearms including my beloved Bushmaster (and another Bushmaster rifle planned) and other stuff. But. I want an arsenal of “assault weapons” before the Dementiacrats take over. Frankly, the cost counts. Okay, cash is actually in short supply.Stop by his site and toss out some suggestions (Hint...everybody needs an AK...maybe a super el cheapo Romanian version from J&G, $349.95).
You might also waqnt to catch up on BATFE and Adventure Unlimited, the last shop refusing to give in to the bullying of that swine Michael Bloomberg. Ahab has a great summary:
The entire pro-gun community is aware of Mayor Bloomberg of New York City’s lawsuit against licensed FFLs - the lawsuit that was a result of his sending private investigators to their stores to break the law and then try and sue them for it.
You may or may not know that as of right now, there is basically one last shop standing that is refusing to give into the bullying by Mayor Bloomberg and his cronies. Adventure Outdoors is still fighting the original lawsuit, as well as having filed a counter-suit, suing Mayor Bloomberg for defamation.
The ATF throwing Adventure Outdoors under the bus pertains to the original case, which is still being fought in court. Earlier in the year, Adventure Outdoors had subpoenaed three BATFE agents to be deposed in regards to the case pending against Adventure Outdoors. After the initial subpoenas were withdrawn, the BATFE “agreed” to allow the agents to be deposed in written question - now BATFE is going back on that agreement and has filed motions to exempt the agents from their written depositions.
