    “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

    While not in the same division as York,below is a picture of my father. He was born in November of 1895 and was 59 when I was born. He served in Co. C 353 Inf. 89 Inf. Division and was injured in a a gas attack. He returned home and was discharged at Camp Dodge,IA in August 1919. He passed away in March 1960 one month before my 5th birthday.

    The problem isn't who the immigrants are ethnically or where they come from, the problem is what they believe about government, economics, and society. Bringing in people from socialist countries is fine as long as they want to flee that socialism and support our constitutional republic in a capitalistic economy. Even if we only brought in Europeans today, the results would be different than they were in generations past. Today's Europeans tend to be closer to the non-Europeans philosophically when it comes to government and economics. Either way you will end up with new Americans who love socialism and hate our constitution if you don't have a litmus test of some sort.

    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.

    Property tax is slavery. A citizen should be able to own their land outright if they have paid for it. Essentially you are just renting your land from the fiefdom for a yearly fee which if you do not tithe yearly they will take it away and kick you off. That is NOT freedom.

    This should be the red flag. If politicians want it bad, it probably is bad for the people.

    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.

    (not trying to advertise another forum but I've seen this one mentioned here and at TOS so I figure it is probably okay). Well I screwed up royally. To ask some questions about a knife, I took a little cyberstroll over to Bladeforums. Asked my question then decided to nose around for a few minutes...... Damn. Shouldn't have done that. Now I'm convinced that only Benchmade knives are any good and that all of my current knives are junk! And the Spyderco Delica (which I may obtain one soon). (Which in truth some are). They also REALLY don't like Ganzo knives. But some of the knife steels they like to hate on either were the gold standard not too long ago or are better than the gold standards of a few years ago. There is better stuff now but it'll cost you. I'm not trying to bash the forum though. It's a good one. But I'm not trying to promote it either.

    Much as I hate taxes, I think sales and/or income taxes are much 'fairer' than property taxes. Once I buy something, it should be mine and I should not have to pay the government money every year to keep it. Likewise, if I spend money and expend effort to improve my home, I should not as a result owe the .gov more money. Sales taxes might be the fairest if applied uniformly - you spend $$, you pay the tax. In the grand scheme of things,however, the .gov needs to stop spending on things they've no business spending on, and become much more efficient so that they burn more cleanly and need less $$. (Yeah, I know, not likely to happen.) -Pat

    Thanks to photographers of the past, we can view places like the Hexagon House Hotel which was built in 1895 and dismantled in 1959 for its building materials. (Mineral Wells, Texas.)

    So what is your point? that Trump is secretly in league with the Left? --That would explain why they like him so much and why he isn't driving them bat**** crazy.
