To his dying day he would never talk about the war. When he did, he would only tell us about the food drops at the end of the war. He said the people of Europe were so hungry, they would run out to get food as it was still falling. Sometimes there were so many people on the field, they would have to...
  • CA SB808 Need Help from Fellow Gun Owners Here

    I have been going across forums associated with gun owners in CA (i.e. with other fellow members seeking support from the firearms community in regard to a situation we have in CA. Recently, the overzealous anti-gun DeLeon had put together a bill called SB808, which requires us to register any home-built firearms and 80% receivers as firearms regardless if they are complete or not. This includes applying for serial numbers from the ATF. It's currently not a federal requirement to register a non-serialized firearm built from an 80% receiver. California is seeking to not only require any and all...

    ...America is partly a imagining of a world without America, but more powerfully it is a virtual courtroom drama as the filmmakers lay out, then carefully refute the Lefts' moral indictments of America: to wit: that America stole the land from Native Americans and Mexico and stole the labor of slaves and the resources from the third world to build its remarkable wealth. Part of the strength of the film is that it uses interviews with leading intellectuals on the Left, including Noam Chomsky, Ward Churchill, Michael Eric Dyson and Alan Dershowitz. It also featured a good deal of archival...

He is polling either #1 or #2, depending on the poll or the flavor of the day. Nonetheless, he is the most consistently conservative candidate in the race who will caucus with the Ted Cruz / Mike Lee wing of the Republican Party if he wins the primary, then beats Cory Booker.
