    I wasn’t looking. I was distracted by Letmethink’s step daughter. :shock:

    Gutfeld was back on The Five Wednesday evening. Be interesting to see if the ratings improve. Not that coming in second to Bill O a bad thing. :)

    Bill O’s 11pm demo numbers beat CNN’s & MSNBC’s prime time numbers. :lol:

    You’re right the Government is not going to go in and forcefully take individual AR-15 from people’s homes. However, if people start communing and establishing these Neo-Con “Survival Camps” like the proposed institution called The Citadel in Idaho, that could become a target for the Governemt if these rogue institutions try and wage a War on the Government. I just don’t get it. I didn’t vote for Obama. My family and I own guns. I’m from Mississippi, quite possibly the most conservative state in the Union. I just don’t understand why the NRA is so strong against mandatory back ground checks and limited magazines. There is a middle ground, and the republicans should give a little on these two minor regulations in my opinion.

    It’s something AppleStinx will get. Hence the reason I’m going to war against him.

    “that could become a target for the Governemt if these rogue institutions try and wage a War on the Government.”

    And you see nothing wtong with this?

    Prior to the formation of the conservative coalition, which helped realign the Democratic and Republican party ideologies in the mid-1960s, the Republican party historically advocated Progressivism and Liberal ideology. Whereas, the Democratic Party advocated Conservatism. Lincoln himself was very much a Liberal and Progressive President who was hated by the Conservatives.

    The civil rights act was the major turning point. This is the period when the Parties basically switched sides. The Democratic Party would now become the Liberal Party and the Republican Party would now become the Conservative Party. Don’t concentrate on the Party Name because that can always change. Concentrate on the ideology of Conservatism and Liberalism/Progressivism.

    And let’s not forget that in the last 2 Presidential elections, America has elected a very Liberal and Progressive President.

    Since Greg is back, hoping to stay awake for Red Eye.

  • Mark2

    Conservatives alway seem to be on the wrong side of history:

    1) Conservatives opposed the American Revolution

    2) Conservatives opposed freeing the slaves

    3) Conservatives opposed women’s suffrage

    4) Conservatives opposed minimum wage and child labor laws, the 8-hour work day, weekends, sick leave… etc.

    5) Conservatives opposed humane treatment of animals

    6) Conservatives opposed the Social Security Act

    7) Conservatives oppose clean air and water

    8) Conservatives opposed the Civil Right’s Act

    9) Conservatives opposed Medicare

    10) Conservatives oppose Equal Protection Under the Law

    And I won’t even bring up that fact that Conservatives opposed the GI Bill, the First Responder’s Bill, the Veteran’s Jobs Bill, Universal Healthcare for ALL Americans, allowing Gays to serve our Country openly, and equal pay for Women

  • AppleStinx

    It’s been 10 year since the passing of a great American. Dr. Bálint Vázsonyi. His “America’s Thirty Years War: Who Is Winning?” was a must-read. I haven’t touched the book (which he signed) in as many years, but it should still be relevant today.

  • Dreamer


    Does anyone listen? Does anyone hear?

  • Arch Stanton

    I’m beginning to think Mark2 is Quentin Tarantino. The master of revisionist history.

  • Jon


    I see a problem that people believe that they need to create a place like this…a place that instills a quasi state that looks to supersede the Government. Yes, that’s scary! I just think it is unjustified right now, and to propel the notion that Obama’s Administration will force their hand by removing AR-15’s seems like a nonsensical and volatile. What I am trying to say is I don’t see the reasoning behind the argument for these people to try and create their own “state” that looks to not adhere to governmental laws. I’m just not an anarchist.
