Oh boy oh boy! Only three days til the end of the World!
“Oh Charles……Not more of those fricking birds?”
“Yes My dear. My love has taken flight”.
Wow! Big jump in the cost of geese – a – laying. Last year only $162. This year? $210!
Which brings our cost of 6 day of Christmas to $1974.95.
Down Texas way they’d say that the NRA is ‘all hat and no cattle’.
Up here in the Pacific Northwest we just call them cowards.
The NRA loves to pay elected officals to make sure our (cough) Second Amendment ‘rights’ are protected.
Love to stir up the simpletons.
But when the rest of us get stirred up and demand that our elected officals listen not to those who pay them but to us who elected them, the NRA does a ‘sound of silence’.
‘The National Rifle Association shut down a key Twitter account last summer in the aftermath of the Aurora, Colo. theater shootings’.
‘On Saturday, one day after the unthinkable shootings at a Newtown, Conn. elementary school, the NRA took a more drastic measure by deactivating its Facebook page after celebrating getting to 1.7 million fans on the social site earlier in the week’.
‘While the group has not commented since Friday’s tragedy, it appears to have staked out a strategy to take its brand out of the social media picture in the wake of a mass-shooting news event’.

Republicans please let these small groups lead the media message of your Party.
‘A piece posted to the Tea Party Nation website yesterday, and sent to the group’s members in an email from TPN head Judson Phillips’.
‘Homeschool. Take away the power of the radicals in the classrooms. Makes your kids safer, too’.
‘Back Right to Work legislation for the public sector. Teacher’s unions have helped cement much of this in place. As long as we have group think in the classrooms we will never see the end of this’. […]
‘Restrict the sex in movies, television, on the internet. There is a reason why young people commit these sorts of crimes, and sex plays no small part. Their passions are eternally inflamed, and they wander the Earth with no outlet for their overstimulated glands’. […]
‘Support the creation of local organizations to act as “neighborhood watch” for schools. Had George Zimmerman been at the front door instead of some mechanical card reader those children would still be alive’.

While nothing ‘official’, the Republican brand likes people like Larry Pratt to ‘speak’ for the ‘common folk’.
Sadly the looney tune section of the Republican Party is now running it.
That’s how afraid Republican have becocme of a minority.
A small group talking about using guns to ‘take their Country back’.
Grow a backbone Republicans……
‘Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, is arguing that Americans should bear arms to protect themselves against an ever-expanding government and elected officials’.
‘Appearing on on MSNBC’s Hardball on Monday’ :
CHRIS MATTHEWS (HOST): “So you’re like Sharron Angle, out in Nevada, who said we need our Second Amendment rights to control when our politicians get out of hand”.
PRATT: “That’s our Second Amendment rights, she’s not making that up”.
MATTHEWS: “So how would you use your Second Amendment rights if you didn’t like the way your congressman or senator is representing you”? […]
PRATT: “By being prepared”. […]
MATTHEWS: “So Larry, it’s not just the right to use guns to protect your homes, it’s the right to take on your government”?
PRATT: “The government has been overboard”.

It’s amazing. All the (cough) feed back from (another cough) ‘Conservatives’ about how wrong some of these statements are.
The minority in the ‘Conservative’ movement is so out of touch with reality and the real America and the Republican Party too afraid to say anything.
‘Fox News Host and former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) doubled down on his claim that the murder spree in Connecticut was caused by removing God from schools, linking the shootings to “tax-funded abortion pills” and society calling “sinful” acts “normal.”
“Christian-owned businesses are told to surrender their values under the edict of government orders to provide tax-funded abortion pills”.
“We carefully and intentionally stop saying things are sinful and we call them disorders”.
“Sometimes, we even say they’re normal. And to get to where we have to abandon bed rock moral truths, then we ask “well, where was God?”
“And I respond that, as I see it, we’ve escorted him out of our culture and marched him off the public square and then we express our surprise that a culture without him reflects what it’s become”.

That’s the answer! Lets just have EVERYBODY own a gun!!
‘Crocket Keller, owner of Kellers Riverside Gun Store near Austin, TX, announced on local radio show KRLD that he would start offering a discount for teachers who want to carry a concealed weapon’.
HOST: “In light of this tragic, tragic shooting, teachers, educators may be wanting to get themselves certified to carry a concealed handgun. If they came to your store, what would you do for them and what kind of guidance would you give”?
KELLER: “Well, as we do with veterans, I would offer them a discount. Our normal rate is $110, so I would give them a rate of $90. If they are teachers, we would be more than happy to do that. We need to lobby our various state governments to allow teachers to be armed. We have airline pilots that now carry pistols or weapons of some sort. I think the same thing needs to happen in these gun-free zones that are so dangerous”.
