    Hey Billhilly, this one is fer yooo! :lol:

    Two hillbillies walk into a restaurant. While having a bite to eat, they talk about their moonshine operation.

    Suddenly, a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough. After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in
    real distress. One of the hillbillies looks at her and says,
    ‘Kin ya swallar?’

    The woman shakes her head no.

    Then he asks, ‘Kin ya breathe?’

    The woman begins to turn blue and shakes her head no.

    The hillbilly walks over to the woman, lifts up her dress, yanks down her drawers and quickly gives her right butt cheek a lick with his tongue.
    The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm and the obstruction flies out of her mouth.
    As she begins to breathe again, the Hillbilly walks slowly back to his table.

    His partner says, ‘Ya know, I’d heerd of that there ‘Hind Lick Maneuver’ but I ain’t niver seed nobody do it!’

  • Coffee Steve

    Filter must be full, I can’t even post a simple howdy post LOL

    “I would say that guns are designed and made to protect the life and property of it’s owner.”
    _______________________________

    They’re SOLD and PURCHASED primarily for protection and hunting, they were designed and developed primarily for the efficient killing of human beings in war. The fact that they have a practical peace-time civilian use is just a bonus. I’m not in favor of gun control, but lets not pretend that they’re in the same category as cars.

  • usa8888

    Cahty–The storm just reinforced in people’s minds that Obama IS a leader and has the middle class’s interests uppermost in mind. Conversely, people were reminded of the “47%” romney solution which most people don’t like. In spite of the hundreds of millions of dollare that the right wing billionaires spendt to buy the election with outright lies, this was not enough to convince the American People because the truth wins over lies in the long run. The right still has not admitted that its social agenda is absurd and with it, they can not elect anyone. But they live in their own world and continue to live in denial. I doubt the billionaires will waste much more of their money unless the GOP changes socially.

  • DB

    Off duty cop brings down shooter in San Antonio movie theater with one shot. No one else hurt. This is the real gun control, let the good guys take care of the bad guys. But hey, Mathew, Usa88 and the total moron Mark2, don’t let an actual fact get in the way of your theories and ideology.

    Matthew, guns were originally designed to hunt food not kill people but I know being at your school you have learned and know everything.

  • Matthew

    “Matthew, guns were originally designed to hunt food not kill people but I know being at your school you have learned and know everything.”
    _________________

    No they weren’t. You can make that argument for the bow and arrow, but not for the crossbow or for gunpowder-based projectiles. Gunpowder was initially developed in China, and first used in rockets – do you suppose the Chinese were going duck hunting with a freaking rocket? As it made it’s way westward, gunpowder was primarily in the hands of the ruling class and their armies, not peasants – that would make no sense, it would be neither affordable (relative to the cost of just making your own spears and arrows) nor practical in a post-hunter/gatherer society.

  • Matthew

    One more word about that before I go, because it’s really sticking in my craw: Just think about the completely unrealistic logistics of early guns being designed or used for food. Gunpowder was expensive, early gunpowder-based weapons (again, rockets and cannons predated guns, and even the early rifles weren’t great) were inaccurate, prone to failure and injuring the user, and would mostly ruin whatever food you were hunting.

    Even modern guns can ruin meat, depending on how poor of a shot you are, and how small the game is that you’re hunting. At best, caste-noble and caste-merchant could have used guns for sport, but they were seriously impractical versus say, being a shepherd, a farmer, or a trapper if your goal was food. Knowing this doesn’t require fancy book-learnin’, it just requires a little bit of the much-vaunted but rarely displayed COMMON SENSE.

  • Raz

    Try NYS for food stamps, every Tom, Dick and Harry can get them…..unless of course you really need em. Then you get turned down.

  • Raz

    Just goes to show you, for real news, nobody trusts MSNBC

  • Ratboy

    Matthew, you have gone off the deep end my friend!

  • BevAG

    It looks like Obama is realizing that the “majority” of people aren’t buying into the Democrat tax and spend philosophy that people on here seem to think he has a mandate on. I’ve heard a few in here say that majority of America is on board with Obama’s plan. Apparently not.

    Obama is starting to make concessions. I’m sure he realizes that majority of people aren’t on board with his plan and that’s why he’s changing his tune. (Plus the fact he has no idea how to manage anything). You can just look at the economics of California, which has had a majority of Democrats for 42 years, and you can see that the Democrat economic plan is a losing plan. California now has a super majority, so pretty much it doesn’t matter what the Republicans do. So the Democrats can no longer say, “Oh, our plan would have worked, but the Republicans were holding us back.” Can’t do that anymore, which I’m totally welcome.

    If you look at the poorest larger cities in America, you’ll see that they’ve had Democrats leading them for 40 years and they’re STILL poor. Those poor people just keep voting in Democrats who have led them into more poverty.

    Remember President Johnson, Democrat, signed the war on poverty like 60 years ago to get rid of poverty? That didn’t work either. Sixty years later and we still have poverty lots of poverty. Actually we have more poverty now since Obama has been in office than we’ve had in a very long time.

    That should say, “California now has a Democrat super majority.”

  • Diamond Dave

    @Dave

    Diamond Dave ,you like FOX are lying.Most everyone on FOX said”landslide” of course now,like you,they are lying about it.

    WOW! It’s actually very scary that you say that, because you couldn’t possibly be more wrong. That means one of two things: You are just lying, or you have a serious disconnect with reality. Whichever is true pretty much reinforces the fact that absolutely nothing you say is correct, and your arguments are thusly irrelevant. If you can provide proof that all these people said what you said, then do so. Otherwise admit you are lying. That’s the only way you can validate yourself.

    PS…I know what I say is true, because for more than 6 months prior to the election I watched nothing but cable news. And I am unemployed right now, so that stretches from 6am to midnight.

  • BevAG

    Diamond Dave:

    I agree with you. I work at home, so I have Fox News on from around 6 a.m. to around midnight like you do. Dick Morris, especially, and Karl Rove kept saying over and over it was a landslide for Mitt Romney. And, boy, I believed them two because I wanted it to be so true. But it wasn’t. Unfortunately now we’re living with the results of an inept President.

    I remember Bill O’Reilly totally disagreeing with Morris and saying there was no way he saw it as a landslide. I was so mad at Bill. I thought Bill was routing for Obama, which sometimes it appears like he is/was routing for Obama. O’Reilly is always trying to give Obama the benefit of the doubt.

    And I just come back to MSNBC kept insisting that the rich, that Mitt Romney, that the Koch brothers were going to buy and steal this election. Well, obviously that was a lie. We saw how THAT didn’t happen. So MSNBC was lying right through that whole election cycle to its viewers.

    I think MSNBC viewers should really take from that they’re lied to very frequently by MSNBC.

  • Matthew

    “Matthew, you have gone off the deep end my friend!”
    ______________________

    If you’re going to insult me, you might at least explain what I said that you disagree with, and why you disagree. Are you seriously also on board with the idea that guns were initially developed for food, rather than military technology?

    I really, really don’t understand this compulsion – it’s like it’s not enough that I agree with you that gun control isn’t necessary, I have take it to some idealistic level where the gun is sacrosanct, it’s development and existence derived only from the noblest of intentions. THAT is off the deep end.
