Socialism and such

If you get a chance, check out this article:

SamD - nice article and good points in your B-1/Carter article.

This article gives a simple yet true look into what our President and Washington lawmakers have in mind for your money right now. Yes, some executives make a lot of friggin money. Yes times are hard, but nonetheless they earned that money. That is theirs, not the government's. Unfortunately, this socialist ideal will spill over into other parts of our lives. I'm not saying anything new here, at least nothing we haven't heard over the last year and a half.

Regardless of your feelings on the President, he is ours for the next few years. We have to continue to band together as we have here in this forum, and stand as brethren against our worst enemy. Our country came to pass because of an idea, let's not forget what we fight for. And, as always, THESE COLORS DON'T RUN.

In closing, here is my last seen sign of the apocalypse:
As some of you know, I work retail for a large outdoor company. You could surmise that our customers think like we do, at least by the ridiculous and beautiful high number of guns sales between Nov 08 and Jan 20, 09. Either way, two people entered our store. Their blank stare and wasted bodies entered our store not for ammunition, but for water bottles. The ones that are "BPA Free". Long story short, they were a pain: they complained about everything, including our great visual scenes of deer, buffalo, and game birds. When they finally made it to checkout, I was called over by one of my cashiers to resolve and issue. The customer is always right, mind you, even when they are wrong. And because they couldn't read the right label, they got a discount. Typical of these folk because they expect everything to be free and taken care of as our President shows them. The sign of the apocalypse was the black button one of them wore, that read "1.20.2009"
We all know what that represents. I'm thinking we make a button of our own, one of those fancy digital thingys that acts as a daily countdown to January 20th, 2013.

If my math is right...we have oh...about 1400+ days left. Lock down the hatches boys...every day is one step closer!

Good points

but like I posted previous, we are really screwed. Obama and his congress is going to shove a very liberal agenda down our throats. We need to change the makeup of congress to a conservative Republican majority...see what you can do locally. Norm Coleman has a website and you can donate any money you can spare to his case against that jackass comedian Al Franken...that could only help. But locally, you all need to get out an spread the word. Yeah, it's nice to vent on this site...but most are already on board. You need to recruit those who DON'T regularly vote, CHANGE the minds of a few from the other side and convince those on the fence to stand with us!!!

Sam and Pkato

thanks for the web page...guess you can get what you want.

Pkato I am in membership with some of my old college buddies and am still active with the youth groups like College Republicans and similar groups. You are exactly right, we have to band together at the local level and go ground up. Thankfully we are united and with these ideas, we will fix this. Might have to move to Arizona to join you boys though!

Godspeed gentlemen!
