  • Trump voters open to bump stock ban after Las Vegas shooting

    As night follows day, mass shootings in America are followed by a succession of Democratic politicians and liberal activists pushing for tighter gun restrictions. Almost as reliably, those efforts fail. But in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas, in which Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at an outdoor concert, there is reason to believe this time might be different. Paddock used “bump stock” devices that effectively turn semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic weapons, causing a higher death toll. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have shown some support for a ban of bump stocks. House...

    Bowe Bergdahl is innocent. He has suffered enough in his life. Blame which ever service accepted him in after the Voast Guard rejected him. From a very young man he was raised in a tiny Idaho town. Although a warm , gentle Mama..his father was/is judgement & a zealot. Bowe was home schooled so his exposure to "0thers" was Nile. He left home to get away from his father's odd philosophy. Bowe has slight autism. please pardon..he's innocent.

  • Trump says his supporters were 'violent'

    12/17/2016 12:36:43 PM PST · by Stopthethreat · 134 replies
    Orlando, Florida (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump said Friday his supporters were "violent" during the 2016 campaign. Trump made the admission Friday night during a rally here on the Florida leg of his "Thank You" tour. During the campaign, he repeatedly downplayed violent outbursts his supporters displayed at times toward protesters and insisted that paid activists were instead responsible for inciting violence at his rallies. "You people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'Where's the wall? We want the wall!' Screaming, 'Prison! Prison! Lock her up!' I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted...

    I couldn't help myself - I joined Twitter today and tweeted to Hillary that she should be ashamed of herself for attempting a coup in America. It was liberating, but risky because if she read it while drunk (fairly likely) I could be in real trouble. Fellow Freepers, if I stop posting please check local state parks for my body in case I commit suicide by shooting myself in the head 3 times.

    I need a little information, folks. I am not knowledgeable about fire arms. But what is NOW the official U.S. Marine side arm. Is it the Beretta 9? Was it the Glock 9 or Glock 18? Was it EVER the Glock? If it used to be the Glock, when did the change come about? Thanks, folks. I'd really appreciate your help. And, by the way, no, I am not asking because I want to buy one. (In Army ROTC, I was still getting uniform demerits by the beginning of the second semester. Do you think a responsible person would sell...
  • Trump in Iowa: Jeb's 'Skin in the Game' Iraq Comment Was One of the ‘Dumbest’ Statements Ever

    08/15/2015 1:54:01 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 94 replies ^ | Aug 15, 2015 | Cortney O'Brien
    Today, Trump slammed Jeb for trying to justify what he says is an unjustifiable war: “He said ‘skin in the game.’ I don’t know if you saw his recent statement…We’ve spent two trillion dollars, thousands of lives lost, wounded warriors who I love all over the place. And he said we have to prove we have skin in the game. I think it may be one of the dumbest statements I ever heard.” Trump concluded that thought by saying Jeb should apologize to the families affected by the war. Jeb seemed to be one of Trump’s favorite targets at the...

    This is what Donald Trump posted on Twitter today, 8-8-15, at 8:46 a.m. Re Megyn Kelly quote" "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever" (NOSE). Just got on with thought." Red State at approximately 9:30 this morning, disinvited him from the Red State Gathering this weekend. He was supposed to speak today. I supported him since he jumped into the race, but, I think Donald finally went too far. Scary, because now he will probably run as a Third Party.

    You know,as soon as I read the title of the article written by Andrew Sullivan I was totally steamed. They got what they wanted and now this moaning diatribe,this haranguing and fulsome whining just really crisped my toast days ago when I read this. The mountain was given to them and they now want what? I'm just so totally disgusted by the whole thing & I thought I'd share my disgust. If any conservatives had a bad week with decisions that came down from the Supreme Court on Obamacare ,sanctioned gay marriage & their little legal eagles they want, the...

    So, as an American, after 3 months living in France, for the first time, let us review what we have found and possibly blow away some myths and untruths you have been hearing all of your life, shall we? lol 1) The French are rude/unhelpful/disdainful. This is the biggest bunch of bull stereotype on the planet. Americans are the strange ones here, as we have to always put on a false face and smile all the time, for various cultural reasons. Look at our current President, who became powerful, almost entirely by his toothy smile. The French are normal and...

    Red State ^ | June 20, 2014 | streiff
    When a person has a disease that cannot be cured, do you think doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life by some painless means if the patient and his or her family request it? At first blush, the idea that a euthanasia should be allowed seems to follow a logic. If a person is suffering and wishes to end that suffering then who has the right to tell them no? It is their life, right? Only some troglodyte Bible thumper could possibly deny a person the simple mercy of ending their suffering. In this way it...
