    Black was put in to that position by Dems. His prayers have been focused at Republicans.

  • How many of these Democrats did the NRA give money to and get re-elected?

    Got news for you, pal...The NRA lost the battle on the assault weapons ban. Remember...Clinton banned them!

    It expired which is why it went away. There was not a repeal bill. NRA has been claiming a lot of bogus victories.
    They are like the Rooster who take credit for the sun coming up.

    He said what he said. A press release to cover his butt aint gonna change what he said...and what he is really about.

    Media Savvy??? really??? Yet, not a word of sorrow for the little victims of a nut job who gun control laws did not stop???

    No, what they will do is compromise. They are already retreating. Took down their own Facebook page, when they could have just closed it to comments. They backed democrats who signed a party platform calling for a ban on “assault weapons”...and everybody knows Dems have already tried to claim that Beretta with 10 or more rounds can be an “assault weapon”.

    Until they prove their worth...I’m not sending another dime.

    “The NRA backs the candidate with the highest pro gun rating. Some win and some don’t.”

    Ok, let’s do away with this bogus claim once and for all...the Harry was really a hight rating for pro-gun legislation.

    They were able to claim that because his opponent did not have a Senate voting record because she had not been in the Senate. They backed him because he was Sen. Majority leader and likely to win, in their view. Lobbyist are always defaulting to “back the incumbant”. And they knew very well that when it comes to gun control, Harry WILL cave and we’ll be stuck with muskets before it is all over.

    The NRA didn’t even give a state of sorrow for those poor little kids. But they did leave the membership open to be blamed for the sick crime of a nutjob who is not even a gun owner.

    You can bet they will “compromise” on future legislation.

    “We exist to protect the second amendment...”

    This is exactly the time for this concern! (There is no “argument” to it. Nothing to debate here. The fact of what is going on with NRA supported candidates going soft is fact). You don’t wait until it is too late! Giving even a little ground only leads to bigger problems and loss of rights. The only reason someone would not be aware of this reality is if they were living in a cave for the past 30 years. Or...if they were one of those who is also soft on protecting our rights to own guns...

    Ok, there’s a reality here you should consider. The NRA is nothing more than lip service when gets down to the brass tax of really defending gun owners. Yes, they donate money, but far too often they donate to dems who are not truly pro 2nd Amendment. They give money to Dems who want magazine limits, bans on semi-autos, etc.

    A couple of years ago at a hunting show, they had an NRA booth. The rep there was a former staffer of a member who is NOT truly for gun rights. He was even bad mouthing semi-auto rifles while talking to people. I’ve worked the Hill because of my career. And I was just shocked to see him of all people working as a public rep of the NRA who was supposedly defending my rights.

    I too tried to send a message through their contact system. It would not let me complete it. If LaPierre keeps up the window dressing, why should I renew. They recently were on the side of an issue that was going to sell us out on ammo issues.

    For close to 3 days now, gun owners have been under attack. And not a single peep out of LaPierre and the NRA.

    Oh, and a tip. Elected Officials care about getting re-elected. Which is why the NRA gives donations to the Hill. However, don’t underestimate the impact your voice has if you call your Congressman and tell them you back their next primary opponent or opponent if they give in and take away your gun ownership rights. And that includes having 30 round magazines and semi-autos.

    And I said call. Do not fax. Call them. If you know people in other Congressional districts, tell them to call. Trust me, it works. You can also usually send an e-mail through their write the rep system. I know the NRA lobbys...but trust me, if the Congressional members do not get calls or letters, they’ll think that the NRA is blowing smoke and that they can vote for whatever and be fine.

    I know most people say that well, they’ll vote that Congressman out if they vote that way. Guess what...it is too late then. Damage to your rights are already done.

    If you want to give money to the NRA, hey, that’s your biz. I’m just telling you. You need to call your Congress member and Senator. Trust me, they all check in with their DC Staff and District Staff to see what the call numbers are on an issue...for or against.

    Keep in mind, their DC Staff is nothing more than kids who were college interns, who went straight to staff. No real world experience. And their experience is in Washington...a liberal bubble. They are clueless to fly over country. Yet, many of the members listen to the DC staff for some crazy reason.

    Again, and I don’t care if your member is a died in the wool conservative, if they don’t hear from you, don’t be surprised if they vote for some gun control.

    Not tryng to be a bummer here. Just some reality from someone who had the “joy” of working that dreadful scene.

  • Boeing Announces Big Layoffs in Defense Division

    This would have been announced over a month ago, but Obama told all the union shops and other companies to hold off on notifying people about layoffs until after the election.

    Nevermind the fact that, law requires a timely and multi month notification of layoffs.

    That some management took an early hit is a bad sign. When it hits the union gimps, they’ll be awoken to a hell of a sad reality.

    Many of my fellow Texans in the south of the state are already protecting the border on their own.

    Come on to Texas. Just avoid Austin. It is a liberal crap hole. Most of us refer to it as the People’s Republic of Austin. Congressman John Carter calls Austin...”San Francisco Light”.

    Tyler is awesome. Cowtown Rocks. “If you ever have the chance to go to Dallas, pass it by”.

    College Kids, for a large part, are really dumb these days. They have such a lack of common sense. They are easily distracted.

    And I plan on making a lot of money off those little empty headed, reality tv wannabes.

    That is what I have seen. They feel some sort of high school click pressure (and these are adults)to vote, or say they voted for, Obama. But I saw about 5 of them today who had that “oh, no, what happens now that he won” look. Thanks to Lou Dobbs and some others, word started getting out last night and this morning about the costs we in the middle class will pay in new taxes and the loss of jobs. Kids in college are so screwed. They’ll be working part time waiter jobs for a long time.
