    I thought it was worthy of a thumbs up to the driver.

    “We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder "censorship", we call it "concern for commercial viability" - David Mamet “Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You're not allowed to speak your mind unless you're black, or unless you're a terrorist, or unless you're an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things." Wilbur Smith “It's always easy to get people to condemn threats to free speech when the speech being threatened is speech that they like. It's much more difficult to induce support for free speech rights when the speech being punished is speech they find repellent.” Glenn Greenwald “Fear of serious injury alone cannot justify oppression of free speech and assembly. Men feared witches and burnt women. It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears.” Louis D. Brandeis “The concept of “microaggression” is just one of many tactics used to stifle differences of opinion by declaring some opinions to be “hate speech,” instead of debating those differences in a marketplace of ideas. To accuse people of aggression for not marching in lockstep with political correctness is to set the stage for justifying real aggression against them.” ― Thomas Sowell “Ironically, on the 200th anniversary of our Bill of Rights, we find free speech under assault throughout the United States, including on some college campuses.” 4-May-1991." George Bush “The children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society that is coming, where everyone would be interdependent.” 1899 “Independent self-reliant people would be a counterproductive anachronism in the collective society of the future where people will be defined by their associations.” 1896 John Dewey, educational philosopher, proponent of modern public schools. And of course! “We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again, for 30 or 40 or 50 years, as if there is something wrong with authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.” Rudolph Giuliani, speech at a forum on urban crime, former NYC mayor, 2008 Presidential candidate, 1994-03-16

    Censoring ANYTHING except threats of violence, and encouragement of violence, and death threats is a TERRIBLE idea. That is how Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc. started out. And they have let death threats from the left go on😱 Censoring any other speech gives it a legitimacy that makes the courious take it more seriously. One of my triggers is a country that banns “Holocaust Deniers”. I want people like that to show their ignorance, out where everyone can see it. Ban it and people start believing it. I had a father and an uncle go into those camps. . . Sorry everybody, it’s obviously a hot button issue with me, so I will close now. Hawk 🤬🤬🤯🤯

    She arrived today. A very beautiful, possibly never fired model 10-7 snub nose with a round butt. It is pristine. This gun has never seen a holster. I am very pleased with it. I have been looking locally for one for many years with no luck, so I turned to Gunbroker. I’m a GB newb, but this particular purchase turned out to be a very easy and painless transaction. Well, enough talk. Here she is: This gun is beckoning to be loaded with some Nyclad HP’s. I really regret shooting off the last of my stash years ago. I would have held onto them had I known they would be discontinued shortly thereafter.

    I am a devout Catholic, but this pope lost me when he sat down with the mass murderer Fidel Castro. I don't have a problem with him going to Cuba to tend his flock there, but he never should have granted Castro a private audience. He should stay out of politics and stick to popeing. I miss Pope John Paul II. With that said, the greatest trick Satan ever pulled was convincing the world he does not exist.

    I don't either but I am also offended. I agree. His obliviousness and lack of proper punctuation are just plain wrong. I am offended at your cavalier attitude.

    A veteran or his/her relatives should never have to bear the cost of burial or cremation, regardless of the cause of death.

    They believe in killing babies but not mad dog murderers. Will not change their minds. They do not believe in GOD or sanctity of life.

    I don't really mind them censoring, but I don't like them taking sides. And I think they'll take sides.

    Character is vastly lacking today, replaced instead by characters.

    The problem with having a fall guy is that if they are getting pounded hard enough, many turn state’s evidence. This could be interesting. Of course, the counter answer is the Clinton Solution.😱. Hawk
