    I'm quickly losing faith in the "peoples" ability to recognize the rapidly increasing temperature of the water we're all in.

    As Franklin predicted at the adoption of the CotUS is has really been game over since day one. It was simply a matter of time.

    Why would anyone listen to what this guy has to say? He hasn't picked a side, meaning he necessarily will stand alone. Criticizing 'both' political parties (inferring there are no other options is just crazy) will get him nowhere. Why doesn't he just join one of the flocks and be blissfuly happy? :winkie:

    This is what happens when a bunch of math-challenged fools get loose with the vote.

    The founding fathers did not envision a citizenry like this ! ... :shocked:

    We must take back our country...

    If we're already past the tipping point, it's over. We're in for 75 years of soviet style communism .... :frown:

    Why can't it be an "all of the above" situation. Oh, and add in deer and feral hogs while you are at it.

    One of mittens more irritating statements is that what he calls assault weapons have no legitimate sporting use.

    I need to invite him on a hog hunt.

    I'll carry this:

    He can carry this:

    I'll shoot the ones that run at me, and he can shoot the ones that run after him. Even even more fun when trying to chase down a wounded one in the brush at twilight.

    There are a lot of them, and some are a little on the large side.

    Single day, 22 Hogs, the one on the hitch haul was over 300#.

    I just set the traps, I had to go to pick up a hog that I had at the processor. By friends had a lot of fun that day though.

    They are a bit small for bacon. But I don't miss it.

    Really strong ones. It's a .308. To be honest, I don't remember where I got them, and they don't have any markings on them. They look to be cut from a block of steel, and not much excess was removed.

    These are pretty close. http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/sid=20038/pid=7858/Product/MARK-4-RINGS-BASES

    Be careful. Just a tip, if you shoot one and it drops without kicking, shoot it again. They will tend to drop and sort of run on their sides. Also, if you walk up on one and it's eyes are closed, shoot it again. Just below the ears at the level of the eyes is the best shot from the side. The vitals are farther forward than a deer, and if you shoot it like a deer behind the shoulder, it's a gut shot. From the front, draw a line between the eyes, and aim for the middle, about 1 inch above the eyes.

    Happy hunting. Yes, a pistol and a rifle are recommended.

    Don't need a gun either. Ask how many of them want to give up their guns and take up bow hunting. Then ask the bow hunters when they want to give up their bows for spears, then ask the spear hunters when they want to give up their spears for rocks.

    We need to hold fast here.

    Same here. And very often they are under the impression that an "assault rifle" is fully auto. "Nobody needs a machine gun to hunt deer."
    This is where being calm and friendly pays off.
