Okay, so this 787 Billion bullshit could have been used for much better things. From what I understand, this equals about 25,000 dollars per taxpayer. Here's what should have happened; The government should have sent each taxpayer a check for 20,000 dollars. They could have gotten with a bunch of different businesses and said "Hey, you're gonna want a piece of this, so what kind of coupons and deals will you offer that we can stick in the envelope with the check"? Sure, a lot of people would save theirs, but how many people would use it to pay down/off debt or spend it on a down payment on a house or vehicle? I should be president.

Okay, read my topic

I'm not clever enough to come up with another attention-getting line. Sue me.

credit card company that I owe a butt load of money to. They are one of the companies that got a huge bailout check from the government. I would imagine that most of the people that owe these cc companies would do the same. Bail out, we don't need no steenking bail out. I would go for it, and have some left over to buy more...you guessed it...guns. What is not to love about that?

Maybe when I go on Jay Leno I'll talk about how much I love to surf Al Gore's internet while getting head from a White House intern and mention Guns Lot. QUINTON, I BETTER GET A T-SHIRT FOR THAT!!! That'd be good advertisement.

Off topic, but I have a question. I am on the wait list for a Glock 34 and am stuck between two different sights for USPSA shooting. I'm looking at either Dawson precision fiber optic adjustable sights or Sevigny Competition Warren fixed sights. Any thoughts? Have I asked this already?

I would go with the Dawson fiber optic sight. A friend of my has this on his Limited gun and it is GREAT!!! I have shot his pistol and loved it. Reminded me of my red dot scope but a lot smaller sight.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. It would be nice to zero my gun for a given load rather than trying to make a load that will hit point of aim.

runawaygun762,
I posted something similiar about 24 weeks ago, I redid the math and saw my error. Lets take the 787 billion and divide it by 200 million (approximate number of taxpayers in America) we get 3935 give or take. Way different than the 25000 you and I both thought it was originally.

I would still vote for you for president when samD is done with his term.

Since the nation's around 11 trillion in debt, divided by your estimate of taxpayers 200 million (too many zeros for any clarity), each taxpayer's share of the debt is around 55 thousand... but we're increasing this debt about 3.7 billion a day (average since 2007)

If you look at this link, kindly note that although the "Simulus" (pun intended) Bill passed, not all of the appropriations have been made so this figure does not include any of the "Simulus"

My math was based off the numbers posted by Mr. runawaygun762, I ate humble pie because I posted something similiar. It illogical to "correct" someones math with different information. I value the link you posted, I had not seen this before.

thank you

Colt did not help with

the American Revolution. I would probably give him "Don't Tread on Me" flag, just as a reminder. Hah hah hah. Clint, feel free to correct me if I am fucked up. I post things about my bid for the high office in jest, but I do intend to run for representative and maybe governor someday and would like to have good facts. Don't worry about me getting my panties in a twist if I am corrected, I have been pretty well beat down and done with pissing contests after my lover's spat with LLE.

I have decided on Bo-mar adjustable rear sight and .285"x.100" Dawson Precision FO front sight for my G34. Now I just need the fucking gun to come in.

yeah

and the next bail out will be just as big so that means I woulda got 50k and my wife woulda got 50k. If every tax paying american got 50k the economy would be BOOOMIN. But alas fixing the economy was not the real issue, they need to tear the US down to get us to sign on to the New World Order deal.

How would the government raise money to give each tax payer $20,000 when we are in debt, make more money would that lower the value of the dollar

The one sure way to fix the economy is for some one to launch a missile or nuclear missile to the Federal Reserve when they all gather for their meeting.

Only then can Americans resume printing real money instead of the phony counterfeit dollars the federal reserve is currently printing and passing around.

This missile needs to come in the middle of the night when they least expected. The world will mourn for a day or two and will soon forget. Then America and the rest of the world can rejoice in the new freedom.

Thank you

Are you for real?

The punishment must it the crime. We have a Judicial system for this reason. AIG executives were caught doing something OUR government gets away with everyday. Are you suggesting a "french style revolution" for the United States of America where everyone YOU do not agree with gets beheaded. Who will make this choice?

I am offended by your question. We do not behead rapists or murders. why on earth would we behead our financial institutions? Who would work for these entities if this was the precedence? Talk about financial meltdown.

Wake up and smell the coffee. The Financial people have connections with the Federal Reserve, Congress, Law makers and politicians. They are all part of the problem why United States of America is in this AwFuL situation. And these people will go on TV with that innocent look and tell you they did not know this was going to happen....

Everyday more and more ordinary citizens are purchasing gun, rifles etc for self protection. Ordinary Citizens are beginning to wake up and realizes the Officials are not really protecting them.

You remind me of a grade school kid playing army in the scotch broom on a vacant lot. Hopefully your guns are cheap plastic with big red tips so the cops will show mercy on YOUR soul and simply take you home to your parents. I know where you can get your submarines, though. They come in a box of Wheaties and use baking soda for fuel. Think of it: Eat a lot of cereal and you can have a whole fleet!

You talked about launching a missile at the Federal Reserve while "they're" all there in their meeting, and then you say launch it late at night. You are a fucktard, plain and simple. Your ravings are those of an idiot who craves attention, whether it's positive or negative. You will not bring anybody to your "cause" here with shit like this. Feel free to blow your brains out. But until then, I'm still waiting on my secret decoder ring and orange plaid lazyboy.

Have you ever wondered why the leaders of the Federal Reserve always having secret meetings?

They will never go public and tell the Americans people the plain truth because Americans will not like it.

When I say launch the missile i am talking about people outside the U.S. who are in power and do not like what the Federal Reserve is doing to them.

I am patiently waiting for the day I am on live TV so I can keep the American people informed.

You can't keep people informed here, as no one takes you seriously. I'm guessing you're not going to be very effective on TV with your foil hat, cardboard tank, and airsoft M60 waiting to shoot down the UN troops. Douche.

Let me give you a laymen translation of how the state of the economy is.

Let pretend you are at a third world country airport. You spot a twin engine aircraft. You break into the aircraft and you manage to get the thing started and flying..

OK now you are flying along minding your business when all of a sudden there is an obstacle in your way. As pilot in command you decide to climb.

As you climb you are losing airspeed because the engines are under powered. The aircraft starts to sputter the higher it struggles to gain altitude.

Thank God you planned ahead and you got a life saving parachute. The aircraft continues to climb when without warning one engine quits. Ohmigosh you rush to the exit to jump as the second engine quits in a puff of smoke. You jump, thank God for the parachute. Because you were smart enough to don the parachute you witness the doomed aircraft speed on pass you as it goes down in a ball of fire until it strikes the ground.

Are you Ready?

When the economy implodes will you be ready?

manny g!

Will you please take your medicine!!

How on earth would an obstacle just appear before you while you are at altitude? If you are flying and there is an ostacle, why don't you just fly around it? Why do you assume the engines are underpowered, all engines are rated for the planes they are installed on.
If you must use analogies to make your points, please, please, please know what you are talking about. Posts like this only add to the wacko mystique you are portraying.

"What if ordinary citizens decided to paint real guns orange so they look like fake guns?"

What's that supposed to mean? You've already blown your cover. You've done nothing here to indicate you have the wherewithall, the brains, or the resources to do anything seriously harmful, but I take idle threats seriously. You've threatened peoples' lives here. That's just insanely stupid. I would suggest tracing your IP, finding out who you are, and putting you on a pretty serious watch list. The BATF and the Secret Service need to know about people like you. I trust they already do.
