That and homeschooling are the only ways that parents can keep their children from experiencing the brainwashing that takes place in the public schools.

If you want to beat the enemy, you have to fight HARDER than the enemy - an inconvenient little factoid that the GOP doesn’t seem to grasp.

I'm not convinced that the GOP does want to beat the enemy.

“...I’m not convinced that the GOP does want to beat the enemy....”

Some of them do; the ones who Boehner is purging.

The new Tea Party freshmen. We need to do whatever necessary to make sure that those that represent us stay there to do so...and those that are in opposition to what we the people want are removed.

It would be interesting to see how many libs bought guns. And the IQ level would be interesting, too.

Yeah, and some of them forget about people like the owner of this board who lives in Calif., the “Cee gar Marine”-Nick Popaditch (sp?), Duncan Hunter and his son, Tom McClintock (sp?), several conservative celebrities, etc..

Youre not making much sense but here goes....

I dont live in all the other 49 states. I live in TN which went red. I think CA went blue as usual. Its really what Ive been trying to explain all along...you should have some influence in your own state of residence. In regard to gun laws CA gun owners by and large have failed by their own inaction. Its no more complicated than that. The last bit of news I read from your state was extending the open carry law to include unloaded HGs. Before that it was the sheriff of Orange (?) Co. making it known she would only give carry permits to those well connected. If youve had any successes at all Ive not heard about them. At this point even victories anyone else would consider insignificant would be a big gain in CA.

What Californians are buying guns? Aren't they afraid that those evil guns will “go off during the night and hurt or kill someone”?

I actually had a Californian ask me that one time when she heard that Mr Ditter was a hunter and gun collector. Then she went into our den and she ‘went off’ on the ‘dead animals’ hanging on the walls.

She was never invited back.

And when you call feinstein's office and the staffer says she'll put your "NO" down on the "yes" list for a particular bill. We found that breaking their fax machines was more effective than phone calls.

We have Feinstein's number on speed dial. No use calling boxer's office, they let the voice mail fill up and never man the phones!

It's fax all the way for those two!

I love those from other states that think we don't fight! Hell yeah we fight. We even voted, TWICE, on Prop 8 but the idiot courts overruled the will of the people..

So, for those that say CA is a lost cause, I tell you....take your liberals back to your own state. Our state was pretty great when I was growing up but then the libs from the cold sates wanted warmer weather and moved here. Take them back and we'll be just fine!

Filling up the voice mail is useful because someone has to take the time to empty it. And emails are not entirely lost, as someone has to sit there and at least hit the delete button over and over.

And, yes, many, many of our liberals came from other states - it used to be rare to find anyone born in CA. Seemed like everyone came from somewhere else.

I hunted when I was young. But as I became older, I found I really like animals and have great respect for them...In fact, I'd only shoot an animal today if I needed food to survive for my family and I.

I'd never to it for sport.

I have no problem with people who hunt to support their survival. But I see hanging animal heads on walls as if it were some kind of big accomplishment strikes me as rather barbaric. I think someone who needs to shoot an animal for survival or to help reduce the food bill, should be somewhat humble and respectful.

But you're free to do what ya want.

Hey slick, lets recap, you said:

This very attitude is why nothing will change positively in CA. Its everyone else’s fault. Hmm, sounds like liberal logic.

Are you taking the blame for having a Communist block captain out of Chicago as President?

Is it everyone else fault?

Is it your fault for being outnumbered? Are you a coward? Why didn't you stop this?

You blame CA conservatives for everything wrong in CA?

Yet your entire government is a cesspool of socialism, as you do nothing to point the finger at everyone else.

I dont live in all the other 49 states.

What kind of bull cheet is this bucko?

Are you not part of the *United* States? How could you allow Obama to become president?

You asked if I or others in CA are cowards..WTF?? People claiming to be conservatives here are some of the first to flee and run away from the leftist and libs...Is this the fault of conservatives who choose to stand their ground Mr. 556?

Look, I don't live in every city and county in CA...Some counties/cities out number others. Can I use this for an excuse like you did?

You logic to illogical and tainted.

I'm growing weary of your weak BS.

No comment on her thinking that “guns just went off and killed people?”

My husband is 77 years old and doesn't hunt anymore but he grew up in a hunting family and a hunting culture that grew out of the hunting for food population. That makes all the difference. Like the California resident who grew up in the culture of guns are bad and “guns go off and kill people”. She probably thinks that SUV’s are bad and kill people too.

I have no idea what you’re talking about and had nothing to do with what I said. BTW, there are those who think like that, who live everywhere including your own neighborhood.

“Better stock up on kerosine to burn the rotting corpses after the big crash.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I actually believe the “WALKING DEAD” TV series is a metaphor for what most Americans fear is coming but it will be the WALKING BRAINDEAD, all the idiots who thought the government could furnish everything for everybody who will have brought this on. Once their benefits are cut off they will be wandering around looking for anyone who has something they can steal. It is amazing how many now seem to have no concept of the fact that government has nothing to give without first stealing it from someone. Those who have reached adulthood without ever being exposed to the real world literally do not understand where things like food, clothing and shelter come from. They think that everything just magically appears on the store shelves and always will. If questioned about it they may laugh at what I have said and say that nobody is that stupid BUT THEY LIVE IN A WAY THAT SHOWS THAT THEY ARE BASING THEIR ACTIONS ON SUCH A BELIEF.
It irks me that all these ill informed people quite often ask why everything “costs so much”. I wish they would ask the real question which is, “Why is my money becoming worthless?”

Your first comment to me was on my post at #159. I mentioned 2 stupid things a California resident said to me. The first one was on guns, the subject of your thread, you chose not to even notice it and went right to the hunting comment. Fine with me. Why don’t you post a thread about the weather?

I hear you. I have already moved to the next stage of readiness by moving the full clips of 5.56 and 7.62 from the drawer to the weapon.

The wheel guns were already within reach and the semis are now ready for backup.

The next time I am forced to go through with crisis resolution, I don’t expect to be front page news and will just be another American defending his life.

“Absence of logic and consistency are requirements for being a modern day Democrat.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Oh, you just don’t understand logic and consistency, fortunately I had a liberal gentleman to explain it to me once. It goes like this you see, we conservative cave dwellers believe that an unborn child has the right to life simply by virtue of being human while someone who kills a child should be executed by virtue of being inhuman. The liberal geniuses believe the EXACT OPPOSITE. What does this mean? Well it means of course that we, the cave dwelling conservatives, are INCONSISTENT while the liberal geniuses are CONSISTENT. I have a problem understanding this because it seems to me that if one position is inconsistent then the exact opposite would be inconsistent as well, therefore either both would be inconsistent or one would be consistent and right and the other would be consistent and wrong but I am a cave dwelling conservative and lack the higher faculties with which to comprehend the genius of the liberal thought process. I hope this clears things up for you.

Im not sure why you keep repeating the same argument. Guess youll just have to study it and reread until you comprehend.

I didnt blame conservatives. I blamed gun owners.

Were talking about states not the country and gun laws in particular.

I didnt ask if you were cowards. I said that you were. I dont care how it happened. Bortom line is you allowed it. No one else is to blame. Until you own the problem itll never change for the better.

Thats right, you dont live in every county/city. However, CA is uniformly anti-gun. Nonetheless you still own the problems in your neighborhood and state in a wider sense.

Fair enough, be tired & weary. It changes nothing in your state. It changes nothing about CA gun owners inaction/laziness/cowardice. Its there for everyone else to see. bye...

The only thing that’s here for everyone to see is your lack of logic. Anyone can read back. You’re wrong on nearly every comment you made and evaded nearly every question ask.

You’re FOS.
