I wonder if the new Russian guns will feature the necessary complete-safety assurances that Obama has dictated must appear on America's new military weapons.

BTW: Examples of the new American safety devices include the necessity of producing photo-ID before firing each shot, maximum-10-rounds magazines, rubber bayonets, and non-lethal ammunition.

Everything Else / Ode to McDonalds!
« Last post by Taurian on Today at 10:04:42 AM »
Sung to the tune of "Folsum Prison Blues."

I see those golden arches
Their comin' 'roun the bend
The day of paying workers
Is quickly at its end

We should have seen it coming
In that min wage increase song
The days of needin' workers
Has seen its time and gone

I walked up to the counter
With my young son "Zack"
I told him "push that button"
To ease your "Mac Attack!"

Were stuck in Big Mac Hades
And time keeps draggin' on
The days of humans working
Has seen its time and gone

I saw that Hufpo piece and didn't think it was worth the electrons that it would have taken to post it.
It was a waste of 1s and 0s for sure.  It did demonstrate; however, the distorted thinking that we face from useful idiots.

Have you ever read something so incoherent that you simply assume that the person who wrote it must have been high out of their minds?
That’s what it felt like to read a recent article on the Huffington Post by Justin Cormi, where he attempts to assert that lawful citizens using firearms for self-defense, like, denies criminals of their constitutional rights, man.
 
The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.
Cormi’s disjointed rant gets even more incoherent and illogical from there, but his basic premise is stunning.
He’s effectively arguing that violent criminals have more rights than their innocent victims, and that the act of defending your life using lethal force is illegal.
This is not only factually  incorrect as a legal matter, but is also at odds with thousands of years of human history, the morality of most modern and ancient cultures, and the theology of every major religion.
Put simply, Cormi couldn’t be much more wrong if he was trying to argue that “green” is a smell.

While Barack Obama is busy gutting the military of the United States and reducing it to dangerously low levels of readiness, the Russians are pushing forward with plans to adopt one of two next-generation assault rifles to replace the various 7.62×39 AKMs and 5.45×29 AK-74s currently in use.

Everything Else / Re: More States Should Adopt This!

Interesting for sure.

Way back when...years ago...someone on this forum asked for a general concensus as to average annual income in GT.

Most answered something like "noneya" and so forth.

Truly not everyone can make a given income DO what some other people can.
In other words, that old saying "it's not what ya got, it's how ya use it" applies in many many cases indeed!

Shucks...I haven't EVER made 45k in any given year in my life!  Maybe both our incomes put together maybe...but, oh well.

I got so good at making do with little or nothing that when I did get some cash ahead, it felt like the fairy godmother had visited the night before!

Oh well...back to our regularly scheduled programs
