    Under the GOP we have seen healthcare costs skyrocket–up 100% in 10 years so that employers can no longer afford to pay for their employees’ healthcare. Is this what you want, right wingers

    With comments like this, you are no longer worth another second of my time or anyone elses for that matter.

    Cabela’s Pulls Out of GunShow,for all the right Reasons.

    While Dick’s Sporting Goods is busy hiding all the scary black guns (but they still have black guns on the shelf) they used to sell, and Wal-Mart (still selling ammo in Texas) runs out of ammo, Cabela’s stands there with arms wide open, ready to embrace all the gun owners in a big, manly bear hug.

    They get it, it seems, because when Reed Exhibitions decided to ban the display and exhibition of “assault rifles” and high capacity magazines, Cabela’s told them what they could do with their so-called gun show:

    “Due to recent changes made by Reed Exhibitions regarding the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, Cabela’s will no longer sponsor this year’s event. After careful consideration regarding Cabela’s business practices, and the feelings of our customers, Cabela’s will, unfortunately, not have a presence at the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.”

    Basically, Cabela’s doesn’t want any part of this war on the Second Amendment.

    Trijicon Pulls Out of Eastern Sports & Outdoor Following AR-15 Ban

    The Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show has lost another sponsor:

    “We, at Trijicon, are very disappointed in the decision of Reed Exhibitions to ban the display of Modern Sporting Rifles from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.”, said Tom Munson, V.P. of Sales & Marketing for Trijicon.

    “Many of Trijicon’s loyal customers are responsible and law-abiding owners of these types of legal firearms and we will not support any organization that attempts to restrict their display or purchase.”
    Trijicon is prepared to reconsider its support of future Eastern Sports and Outdoor Shows if Reed Exhibitions should reverse its stance regarding Modern Sporting Rifles.

    This is great news, ibsles!!!! Hopefully, they all will pull out and stop the gun shows altogether unless assault type weapons are BANNED!!!!!!! The gun mfrs and the NRA continue to support murder of children and adults to make a fast buck!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Rat can’t answer the question of the GOP supporting rising healthcare costs. Maybe he is a millionaire like Robme–it makes no difference, then…

  • Hoppy


    “Hey, Hoppy–what do want the US to do–let Al qaeda take over Africa and Europe and then the US. As you may know (or probably don’t), the CIA is involved.”

    Who said I wanted anybody to do anything? My President has told me that I do not need to fear Al-qaeda, and I believe him.

  • usa8888

    Fox “News” headline distorts Netanyaho election results but actual story from Jerusalem has it right…………..

  • usa8888

    Hoppy–what are smoking? Obama has said no such thing!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cathy

    Matthew, you proved my point. We can see what type of a person Obama is by his vote in 2006. He has to now answer why his believes have changed. That 2006 vote will cost him approval rating points. And the more points Obama losses the more power he losses and the higher the chances the Dems will loss seats in 2014. (maybe I just hoping.)
    But you do have to answer for your vote.

    @rat, didn’t you get the memo. decimated has two meanings. 1) the most common To destroy or kill a large part of (a group). 2) To kill every tenth person. Obama’s speech writers select words very carefully. Obama used decimate knowing that everyone would assume he meant the most common use of the word. But when he was proven wrong which he knew he would be, he said him meant the second meaning. He did kill at least 1/10.

    I’ve decided to print a quote from a foundering father daily that I agree with. Do what you want with it. Today. Benjamin Franklin.
    “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
    On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor[5] (29 November 1766).

    Hey, I have an idea: why don’t all the right wingers leave the US because of high taxes and start their own country somewhere else???

  • usa8888

    All we have to do is keep the largely uneducated right wing House members from OBSTRUCTING and the country will be fine. Right wingers, please call your congress persons…….

  • Hoppy

    @Coffee Steve,

    Cold and snowy, Steve, but not as bad as Ratboy has it 50 miles east of me. I’m just a couple of hundred yards from Lake Michigan, so the temps are a little bit warmer and the snow tends to go a little bit past me.

  • usa8888

    The right wing wants to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA,the FDA, the Federal Reserve, the USDA, birth control, Wall Street Regs. Now if we could just get the right wingers to want to eliminate the NRA, we would be doing well………….

    My “sources” say Boehner said she looked lovely. First Lady wasn’t falling for that pickup line. :shock:

  • cathy

    Usa, did you go to the site I posted for you. It’s for your own good.

  • Ratboy

    @ Hey, I have an idea: why don’t all the right wingers leave the US because of high taxes and start their own country somewhere else???

    Well ok but you lefties will be in deeeeep stuff because there will be no one left to pay for all of your spending!! Where will all the food stamps come from then??
