Seniors Want Swingers Party Looking For Swf For Nsa Or Fwb
Lets be friends frist Aloha, how things going.
How I came to fall in love with you, I will never know or understand.
Start the Day off Right Stay Conservative and buy a gun There's a computer world phenomenon known as blog. It started as a compilation of comments in no apparent order in what appears as continual words of wit or wisdom or wisecracks.
My commentary and links may not quite be blog but close enough, so here goes. You can follow me on Twitter My wife, Cathy has been looking at car web sites for a new minivan and I decided that today we were going to buy a new van. It simply felt like the right day to get it done! We are in show business. No, not actors on a stage nor even movies, but we produce Gun Shows or Arms Fairs as we like to call them, and have had our share of TV notoriety over the years.
The only reason I digress a bit about our business is that it seems that is all we get to do — do business. After all, we were supposed to meet someone in Glens Falls to buy a collection and on the way also stop at a repair station in Saratoga and have our springs checked on our minivan.
And, of course, take care of the rest of the routine that all small business owners must do daily. It was a beautiful sunny day, dry with a slight chill for this late May time period and the drive around Saratoga Lake was quite nice.
What a different world our kids will live in, certainly a more clean and beautiful one in this area. Well, we told them we would be back in a half hour or so. Cathy had downloaded a half-dozen offers from various dealers through Edmunds.
We travel a lot to our various Gun Shows and I load up the car pretty good with iron in gun cases so we need comfort, performance and room. I found that the Chrysler Stow—n—Go feature with the heavy duty hauling package is an ideal vehicle for a Gun Show dealer.
With that amount of room we can distribute a heavy load evenly with a very comfortable and smooth drive. Well, regardless, when I enter a car dealership I naturally have an attitude of me against all of them! With stern face and aggravated body language glancing around like this was a den of vampires some unfortunate lady asked if I needed help.
I informed her I was looking for Lindsey, who she would go and find. We looked in and out, no trailer hitch, no power folding rear seat, no sun roof, no Michelins — no good, I thought! But I sat in the driver seat and played with the buttons while Cathy went looking for something else. I pushed the shift to reverse and the back-up camera screen showed me how much room I had to park this thing — so I did.
Meanwhile, Cathy had Meghan pull out another Town and Country next to my black one. Cathy found her car. We took it for a quick drive to check for wind noise and ease of handling and it was fine, including the blind spot sensor feature in the mirrors. Well, with some negotiations of give and take, Cathy got her car. Literally — got her car that same day — within hours of when we came in we were driving her new car to our appointment in South Glens Falls on its first business trip!
I never knew one could buy a car and drive it off the lot the same day — what a new world I am discovering! We actually enjoyed buying a car at Nemer. And, of course, we talked about guns and our Saratoga Springs Arms Fair we have produced at the City Center for the past 32 years. I think I may try to get them to exhibit at our next event in August and show a vehicle to our gun folks.
Pretty good day so far. An hour late but we still made our appointment to buy a collection of Autumn Leaf china made by Hall Company and sold decades ago through the Jewel Tea traveling salesmen.
We buy and sell more than collector and investment firearms, we also buy several patterns of Hall china. And we also collect. Well, we came, we saw, we bought, we left — all without lunch and just a light breakfast; Cathy and I were famished and now it was nearly 7 PM. We needed to stop again at Nemers to pick up our other Town and Country and we remembered passing the Wishing Well Restaurant so on our way back down Route 9 we stopped there for dinner.
We had never been to the Wishing Well before. After greetings, our very pleasant hostess sat us at a table for four — what I like — with elbow room and comfortable chairs.
Besides, we are friendly people, and evidently, celebrities! I was impressed when the hostess showed her an extensive Scotch list, Cathy settled for 12 year old Glenfiddich; never ruin the 18 year old with vermouth! Then some simply delectable New England lobster bisque with a touch of Sherry. A real close competition to my own but I am slightly biased! We both were also half sauced with one drink after not eating all day so we were definitely ready to order; Cathy picked the pair of 4 ounce filet mignons and I had a pair of Maryland crab cakes.
You could not wish for a more melt in the mouth, tender steak and their perfect crab cake than we had at the Wishing Well. Their sign says fine dining and we certainly dined finely. The service was terrific and our excellent waitress, Kylee, was super. We conversed about the food and our business, I told him that some of our Saratoga gun dealers raved about the food here and how they visit when they are in town at our Arms Fair, but that today was our first experience even though we have done business in Saratoga for years.
What a great meal, then we talked guns — Bob had told me that he and his son were at our past March Saratoga Arms Fair and also had a half dozen long guns hanging over his back bar and asked if I would take a look and perhaps apprise him of any information, which I obligingly did. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright moron.
Make SURE you read below the line! Ou r New Blog Page is starting After threats of protest, a Friday thunderstorm of drenching rain followed by extreme humidity and deep pools of rain water our Saturday morning crowd at the Saugerties Ice Arena Arms Fair was only a trickle.
I thought we were in for another slow show continuing the trend of bad weather during the week with gorgeous weekend sun that was keeping our crowds doing outdoor activities. But the trickle became a steady flow and we ended up with a decent public attendance. I sold two military WW II rifles within the first hour and continued on with buying and selling until about noon when the traffic became light again.
The beautiful spring weather won out and with lots of things going on, the public stayed outside in the sun instead of coming inside to buy our guns. Reports from other gun shows confirmed that the light public attendance was spread completely throughout the circuit and that trend seems to have begun in mid April. Naturally, some dealers had excellent shows, some just good, while others did poorly; the nature of the beast even though gun and ammo sales are still hot.
Supply of what attendees want, however, is still tight, or even non existent while prices are high. Regardless of rosy economic forecasts by this current and morally corrupt administration in Washington, there is not a lot of disposable cash in the hands of middle class Americans but there is plenty of doom and gloom to go around. The weekend news of Bagdad potentially falling to radical hoards of Muslims resembling the scourge of Genghis Khan spurred on talk of wasted American lives and incompetence in the White House.
It also spurred the renewed urgency of buying a gun and some ammo. I must have been busy doing business and was quite disappointed considering I had a cased Travis Tritt Commemorative Single Action Army revolver among my display; I wonder if he saw it?
Also, one dealer reported speaking with Willie Nelson and his Manager! Then on Sunday we had Hank Williams Jr. Way to go Hank! Still wish you bought that Schofield, call me!
All in all, the Saugerties Arms Fair was an overall nice event, no protests, and as usual no problems; the concession stand and arena personnel were terrific and the show was another NEACA success. If all goes well in our future, we will return next year amid lots of offers of help in getting the word out to the surrounding gun clubs and gun enthusiasts so our exhibitors can afford their own return to a great little village and our second Saugerties Arms Fair.
See the local news poll at: Hundreds of guns will be on display to peruse, purchase and parlay the price with a trade or on a special gun show sale. Also, you may want to bring something in to sell to our collectors and dealers who are always interested in buying vintage firearms, collectable knives or vintage sporting items and war militaria. Viewing our tables is like a walk thru history or a museum where you can also buy what you see and like.
Knives and swords will be there plus a very fine fellow who can sharpen that dull kitchen knife on the spot. Want a Damascus blade folding knife? You can find one at our show. Americana, vintage sporting collectables, Adirondack lore and even a world renowned nature photographer, none other than Dennis Donahue, can be found at our weekend event.
As we say, we are so much more than just guns! But remember, our country was founded, explored and secured because of our ability to have, hold and keep our firearms; it is the American Heritage, our historic way of life, that so many individuals outside our beloved United States can only wish to one day attain.
So, we still call our show what it really is, a gun show or an Arms Fair that celebrates our American tradition and our Second Amendment right of gun ownership. Search the attic for that old military uniform or World War memorabilia, dig out that unused smoke-pole antique rifle or rummage the cellar for those old traps, duck decoys or sporting art no longer of your use and bring it along to sell or trade with our collectors.
And, if you are ready to trade that old handgun for something new, or just want a new trap gun or closet shotgun stop by our show this Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM or even Sunday from 9 to 3 and talk to our dealers about your needs. Our dealers have plenty of that ridiculously scarce twenty-two ammunition, lots of shot shells and even hard to find or obsolete ammo at the show. Our local and State representatives who selflessly serve our great country are always invited to our NEACA events and many prominent politicians have stopped by our shows.
For this weekend event Congressman Chris Gibson noted that he would like to be here in Saugerties for our Gun Show and we expect that he will be attending on Saturday.
From hunting accessories, scopes and sights, gun racks and gun signs, targets or reloading supplies to wartime Lugers and Nazi dress daggers … there is something for everyone at our NEACA Arms Fairs. Come and see for yourself this weekend. Wow, pickles to pickelhaubes, all at our Arms Fair! Why would anyone want to protest? It needs to go viral. If you are not a veteran send this to those that you know who are, or to those who may know veterans. The United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, During this midterm election year, all seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election.
A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in
If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion.
Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some. When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a pound woman on equal footing with a pound mugger, a year old retiree on equal footing with a year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly. Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force, watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.
It removes force from the equation So, the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced.
Very nicely put into perspective for the gun grabbers! Democratic senators offer gun control amendment for cyber security bill. Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cyber security bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers. Shortly after the Cyber security Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen.
The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in The proposed amendment would only affect sales and transfers after the law took effect. Schumer defended the Brady law and assault weapons ban on the floor Thursday evening, perhaps in preparation for the coming fight with Republicans and gun rights activists.
Schumer suggested that both the left and right find common ground. He suggested that Democrats make it clear that their goal is not to repeal the Second Amendment. Schumer also pointed out that it would be reasonable for the right to recognize that background checks on those buying guns is necessary — as called for in the Brady law.
Next week the Senate is expected to debate and vote on proposed amendments to the cyber security bill. I guess there are some people who actually read the member letters I send out for our New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates; the last and most current one was about the ongoing saga of the possibility of the elimination of New York State Gun shows.
Some of you have gone the extra mile and I want to recognize several members here and now. Just got off the phone with Brian Sherwood in Tupper Lake who called to request an extra table for display at our Clifton Park Show and he explained how one of his friends and one of our members was on a phone campaign urging members and dealers to either send a contribution to the war chest or take an extra table at Clifton Park.
After my prodding he told me the caller was Terry Perrigo, also from Tupper Lake, apparently, Terry is going the extra ten miles. Before she uttered a word and I saw there was no application for the upcoming show I knew exactly what the letter said and what the check was for. While she read it you could have seen tears in my eyes. The letter is below. I know all the above named would not want me to even mention what they do but I must. There are many more among the nameless who contribute in a large or small way to make our shows a success.
I am proud to call them friends. Dave and Cathy Petronis. As you know I am one of your friends and of course a vintage gun collector. I am also very disappointed in the AG and his under handed tactics to persecute gun enthusiasts and the unconstitutional effort to coerce honest US and NY citizens. This governmental injustice is all very sad and a blemish on America and free societies.
As you know I have set up at a few shows in an effort to reduce my gun collection since the apparent goal of these tyrants is to subvert the laws of this fine country and disarm its citizens. I have been a hunter, trapper and fisherman all my life.
I was raised on a small farm in the Adirondacks where bringing home some game for the table was greatly appreciated by my grandparents from Austria. They worked hard and honestly to meek out a living in difficult times and terrains. It took me years of hard work to earn enough extra money to put together a collection and hoped it would be an investment and fun in my retirement years. I have worked 50 years building roads, bridges, railroad crossings, wastewater treatment plants, airport improvements, power lines, and many other public domain improvements.
I fan a fur business for 27 years, a motel for 8 years and a construction business for 2 years. I was president of our local rod and gun club and founded the Adirondack Trapper Association.
At nearly 68 years old, I have just signed up for another two years for an engineering company to rebuild a local road and bridge a 7 million dollar project. I was born in Syracuse and since my birthday present each year in my youth was a trip to the state fair, I really enjoy that show. I will endeavor to make it to your shows when it is viable. I am enclosing a check, which I hope you can use toward legal defense of this outrageous onslaught on your family and our constitutional rights.
This is the first time I have done this but it is my way of contributing toward honesty in America. I will spread the word hoping to encourage others to do the same. God Bless America and god bless you Dave and Cathy in these desperate times of injustice.
Terry, I want to thank you personally and one of these days, Cathy and I will really stop in and have that coffee. What he considers is a loop-hole in the Gun Show Business Law is actually the right an individual has to sell personal property. Any man or woman who owns a gun can legally sell it to anyone else! That right should not cease at a gun show. Because he says it is. How much do you want? You could give it to him for free on the spot or sell it for fifty dollars. And your brother-in-law has just committed a crime of receiving a firearm without going thru a Federal background check.
If spotted by any police officer in New York State you are subject to arrest, imprisonment and fines. Did you know it is a crime to do what transpired?
The answer, it appears, of educating the NY State populace of this law is on my shoulders and the responsibility of other Gun Show Promoter. And give a deposition under oath! But, I could agree to this new demand, pay the fine and watch my step in the future. I thought blackmail was illegal. As a citizen, you have a perfect right to sell your personal property anywhere, anytime and to whom you wish. That is, except your legally owned guns at gun shows!
Of course, if you were at a show in our adjoining states of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania or Ohio you could still do the same thing. Only in New York is it a crime. In New Jersey there are no gun shows but you can own a machine gun. Schneiderman may be looking to mimic New Jersey without the machine gun part. I still have my sights set on Jersey though. If you as a free citizen of this New York State agree that this whole charade is just that, a political move to enhance a resume, then help me and the other promoters of Gun Shows by letting your elected representatives know how you feel about your rights being violated.
This is not about guns; this is and always will be about control! Guns will never go away, they are a part of the American Tradition.
Guns make us Americans. Whether you like or dislike this is, not the question. Whether you can sell your personal property is. Perhaps our Second Amendment Protection Union should be formed.
You may not sell your gun to anyone while on the show grounds or adjoining parking lots without having the buyer go through a NICS check, this is illegal. You can, however, sell your guns to any FFL dealer. They are there, in fact, not only to sell but to buy new inventory. We can still do business but in a far more intrusive way.
It should be the responsibility of the State, not mine. Commentary by David Petronis, Dec. A Gun Lover Poem. In earnest response to a Viewpoint in the Sunday Gazette dated April 29, I respectfully disagree with the author and her views but staunchly defend her right to flowingly air them. I humbly submit a gun lover poem:. Barbara DeMille of Rensselearville.
At writing has really a fine wit. But with accuracy become more a nit-wit. Automatic weapons were never used. While her facts they were quite abused. For protection in homes today. Reasons schools should teach aim and accuracy again. I long for the day when kids went afield and about. Responsibility with ownership is more what we need. As for a hooded perp with a burglary history. A security shooting should not be a mystery. Threats to my person or force into my house.
I should not be required to run like a mouse. Our gun control to be strived more. Should be to hit what is truly aimed for!
Seems like all the major gun companies have figured out that with all the buying activity, they can raise their prices to distributors. Naturally they then pass it on to us dealers who in turn — guess what — have to pass it on to our customers. You may want to stop by and get yours before the summer fun begins and none are around. Also, just got resupplied with the Russian Moisan Nagant, both round and octagonal receivers.
But they are in super condition with accessories and are still fairly cheap considering the overall market on guns in general. We also have the 7. Been to an auction lately? The guns usually end up costing more than for what I sell the same thing at my store, no bargains there. And I give a guarantee.

Living married with me for nearly 50 years and working in our business's together since , that alone should warrant a woman of the year award. And I do remember that time she helped me with an engine overhaul! And for keeping up with me to reach our fifty years of marriage on June 30, , any wonder I want to keep her happy?
Or that she is still the apple of my eye and my best friend? All in all I think I may have scratched the surface of what Cathy Petronis, my wife and life partner, has done and continues to do on a daily basis. We survived the Mechanicville Tornado that ruined our home and plans then worked together to rebuild our lives. For this life and in the next, I nominate Cathy Petronis for woman of the year. See our Sunday Gazette! Happy New Year to all us Primates! This is my Niece, Jill Andrews, with the little guy.
For the full story click here! Our organization does not engage in criminal activity. The purpose of our organization is to promote our arms collecting hobby and provide a forum where arms can be traded or acquired and educational displays can be presented. We have organized and promoted gun shows since We have never experienced a bad incident or problem of any sort and during the past 30 years we have provided safe and enjoyable events to hundreds of thousands of people through the Northeast from Maine to Pennsylvania.
Evidently, now we are somehow to be looked upon as criminals by the Attorney General, and our past three decades of professionalism mean nothing. I am not quite sure if the Attorney General actually believes that our hobby provides places where criminals gather to do evil, but let me assure you, that concept is as far from the truth as possible.
Gun shows have been held throughout New York State for decades with no problems. In fact, there are existing laws regulating gun shows, and even a designated group of New York State troopers to enforce those laws. We conform to this requirement and have done so since we were notified of it. This rule also applies to all persons entering the show, even to individuals who meet at the show, discuss the purchase of a firearm that one of them owns, then leave the show together.
They are still legally liable to obey the regulations of the NICS check if they finish their transaction outside. By the way, let me explain that the above rule with respect to private sales is only for us New Yorkers. An even more bizarre situation concerns the person who arrives at the gun show with a private firearm and sells it to someone before ever entering the building.
I hear in conversations that this may be exactly the situation that I am now being investigated for. I have had many calls of inquiry and support from people who have attended our shows and from our NEACA members. Many have asked to send a letter of support saying that our practices at the shows have always been above board and according to regulations. To all those people, I say Thank You! Show your support for someone who has stringently obeyed the laws and has probably annoyed some of our show attendees by stressing in word and practice that we all have a responsibility.
I urge you to support our local shows, our NEACA organization and most of all our constitutional rights. It has been said to me that our new Attorney General is an anti-gunner, a staunch liberal in favor of eliminating gun shows and possibly our gun rights. I do think, however, that like many public officials he may have an agenda.
A lot of progressives feel that gun control is righteous and will save lives. Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support and we hope to see you at our next City Center, Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on January 28, 29, Download the complete story as a PDF. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on on-going financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Six years later America will do a lot better As a firearms dealer, I read with some interest the Pastor initiated gun buy-back program offered in Schenectady and reported in your Gazette on June 19, I question the lawfulness of such an event.
As a state and federally licensed dealer in Mechanicville, I applaud the attempt of removing illegal guns from city streets as the Pastors Charlie Muller of Albany and Ted Ward of Schenectady have envisioned.
But at that time there were so many legal hurdles to address which made such an attempt to retrieve stolen and illegal guns near impossible, I wonder what now has changed; not much, I believe, perhaps attitude.
Our New York State laws still insist that a handgun be registered by name, serial number and caliber to an individual holding a valid and current pistol license. The point is, regardless of the noble intent, the picture your photographer snapped of the Rev. Charlie Muller holding that. Dumb as it is, that is the way it is. It is not my intention to undermine the efforts of these fine and responsible people but rather to raise awareness of some of the stupid rules that try to run our society.
So what does Charlie do with an illegal handgun? Give it to the police who then need to find out where it came from? That could well be their job. If it was found to be a stolen weapon, which in most cases it probably is, do they return it to the rightful owner? And by simply getting a murder weapon off the street, if that is what we are most concerned with, is the evidence of that gun and its ballistics now useless to track and prosecute the murderer?
Why not let plain folks who find old guns in their attic just turn them in to their local licensed gun dealer who in turn can help them be registered or sold as a collector piece? Why can one scenario be solemn and good while also being lawbreaking, the other be impossible?
The Real Gun Show Story 2. This next event will also mark our 28 th year producing shows at the Saratoga Springs City Center, this one being number eighty-four! To see some of our prior exhibitors and their presentations click to Saratoga Arms Fair. Over the years we have had many highly creative people included in our Arms Fairs and this is a great opportunity for many of them plus new artists to pool together in our show and make August in Saratoga not just the place to be for horse folks but for Artists and Artisans as well.
That is why our Saratoga show has been running fine for these nearly three decades! To toot our own horn, we try harder and work friendlier.
This is a great little village in the beautiful Central Adirondack Mountains of New York State, truly a world away from city trials and troubles; though the traffic does get backed up when the whitetails wander the main roads!
Our business is good, we at New East-Coast Arms Collectors Associates or NEACA, are all well and in fine health; we like what we do and have friends across the country … what else can there possibly be to better enjoy the continued good life? I know, for you to check out our shows as an exhibitor or attendee, better yet, join us and become a Member.
You will enjoy what you have been missing. The Real Gun Show Story 1. Our company actually staged the first large event at the budding building when we opened with an exquisite Antique Show. I think the sign announcing something about a new Convention Center brought me to an abrupt halt and I found Mark Baker on site doing things in a small construction trailer.
Mark is still there issuing our contracts and now overseeing the expanding show area. We now routinely fill the hall with exhibitors and public has been flooding in four times a year to buy, sell and trade firearms of all makes and models plus taking home antique war weapons and accoutrements of every description.
Ours has been an ever changing business; we routinely must revise our shows to comply with new rules and regulations. Not only are there changing Federal laws to stay abreast of but New York State is one of the most restrictive in business with its own laws, taxes and compliances that we must follow, and being in the gun business we must abide by many more specific regulations.
To buy a firearm there are forms to fill out, instant background checks to be made and hopefully received back in a timely manner, and delivery to be accomplished. What used to be a lightly regulated swap meet 30 years ago is now a full time, well managed business. And years ago when these meets were few and far between today there are literally dozens of gun shows that go on simultaneously each and every weekend across these great United States.
Business has been good; while other businesses may be feeling the recession, the gun makers and sellers have been doing fairly well. It seems that people who never expressed an interest in owning a gun now want one in their home. Pistol permit applications are way up and background checks for purchases are at record levels.
Whenever a Democrat administration is in power just the threat of more rights being compromised or more restrictive gun laws enacted seem to be enough to spur our business on. Now with the Obama nation in charge of both the Congress and the Whitehouse, the fears stated are present once more. Guns and ammunition sales were at record levels last year and continue to be strong.
The recent Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment to our US Constitution actually means what it states, that individuals have the right to own guns, now is being exercised at a brisk pace. It is also widely believed that after this election in November that a left over Democrat lame-duck Congress will try to ram through new laws or regulations that will be very adverse to gun owners nationwide.
There has been little to no conversation over the past year and a half about any restrictive gun legislation which is most unusual. This, we believe, is not by chance but by design and meant to lull the gun owning majority to dampen their guard over our freedom.
This may sound like the popular conspiracy theories, but never the less, that belief is another driving force for immediate and continuing gun purchases. Aside from fear of losing or having the future ability to buy or own guns there is another, though less known aspect in the collecting of guns; their strong resale market and retained or increasing value. Prices of quality collector firearms have been sky rocketing; auction houses routinely break individual record sales.
Highly engraved, rare or historically attributed firearms are now one of the best of investments. Usually a better return on investment than the stock market, especially so over the last several years; and honestly what would you rather have trying to protect your home one of these nights, a piece of paper portfolio or an antique, highly engraved, still functional Smith and Wesson revolver with a box of 50 rounds of.
Today, high tech manufacturing and laser engraving has brought the price considerably lower for a fine and fancy firearm. Visiting one of our shows is still a walk through history but also, unlike a museum, you can actually purchase and go home with a true historical artifact or museum quality firearm. Not just guns but all sorts of sporting antiques, military collectables, investment quality custom knives, old hand crafted hunting decoys, traps, artwork, or Americana plus reference books and shooting accessories of all types can be found among the myriad of tables manned by the most extraordinary of throw backs to a different age; the gun dealer.
Come visit them at our next show in the newly expanding Saratoga Springs City Center on August 28 and Getting an average of over 6 million plus hits a month must define that there is ample interest in what we do.

Then came an e-mail. Only about 40 minutes north of our home this intimate dinner for two was to be our celebration of another milestone in our loving lives; well, almost. Cathy and I produce Arms Fairs for exhibitors and public to gather for the purpose of selling and buying firearms and related accessories.
As such we have been utilizing the banquet room at the Holiday Inn Turf for a February Gun Show for over fifteen years, so we knew the facility and our dinners there were always top notch. A Friday evening seafood buffet is a highlight for the locals and guests and we have made it a point to partake of the fare. With our pleasant experiences already, we knew this intimate five course dinner was going to be great.
But intimate, not so much. A few hours later a return call from Jan was that they would also like to go and wanted to treat us for our anniversary dinner.
Not a proposition to refute and their company is excellent. This deal is looking better all the time, I thought — great dinner, fine company and now a gift! Including an appetizer, a salad, a special appetizer, filet mignon and dessert; a hundred dollars a plate would not be a lot. The entire mouth watering menu was in our original e-mail and we were ready to party.
So intimate dinner for four, here we come. The Turf Hotel group owns several in the area and have been upgrading their Holiday Inn property overlooking Lake George for a year now.
The place is beautiful, with accommodations, lobby and patios very comforting and eye appealing. The view of the lake is great and an evening cocktail near the outside fire pit is simply relaxing. From past experience we knew pretty much what to expect with dinner seating and service, but for this evening a surprise awaited.
On arrival we were greeted by the hostess, who knew us from our Arms Fairs, and led us into a special newly remodeled private room with doors opening to a private patio. A table for eight was nicely set up and we were motioned to pick our seating.
I immediately mentioned that some confusion must be happening as we only had a reservation for four. We were a little early so we started on a bottle of the first wine offering of the evening, a Chardonnay from California. Our conversation began with how meeting new people should be an interesting one but I wondered what was in store. In a few minutes our Executive Chef, Michael Squires came in to greet us and explained a bit about our meal and that four other guests will soon be arriving.
Then a couple from Niagara Falls, who were staying at the hotel, also joined us at the table. They were about our age, married 46 years, and complemented the group very well. All were in attendance and our night began. A Jumbo Shrimp Francaise with lemon and saffron beurre blanc was placed in front of us and more Chardonnay was served.
Chef Michael explained about the serving and what was to come and our mouths began to water. But 3 large shrimp covered in a butter sauce needed to be dispensed with first; they were delicious — could have been equally sufficient with only two!
It was then divulged by manager Mike that this was the first offering of this dinner with real live customers, us, and that they sincerely appreciated our reservations. Prior dinners were for the staff where they tweaked the menu and service and were still seeking input as to how everything is served, amounts of food and style.
And what little piggies we were to become! Cleanse our palette, here comes a Pinot Grigio from Tuscany and our Belgian endive salad with walnuts and apples slices. Of course, nothing is as simple as it sounds. Not just walnuts, but ones that were roasted with honey and sprinkled with confectionery sugar. Thin slices of apple arranged in a perfect circle surrounding endive leaves in citrus vinaigrette.
The fruity wine was a wonderful pairing. We were beckoned that it was time to stretch our legs and retreat to our private patio where Chef Michael was grilling our special rack of lamb. Michael was finished grilling; we knocked off our Pino Grigio and returned to our seating among interesting conversation and awaited our next course.
Our server appeared with a California Pinot Noir, supple in texture, with rose petal and red fruit aroma. Chef arranged these two great looking little chops with bone handles in a crossed arms fashion, almost in honor of our NEACA emblem of crossed rifles, he placed them over a mound of pesto risotto and sided with sun dried tomatoes. These were grilled to perfection with an applied herbed au jus and they were superb. The mound of soft, short grain rice was tasty but much more than I could handle for an appetizer.
My buds were working overtime as it was. Cathy and Jan were contemplating how to duplicate the lamb as a meal when our fourth wine was uncorked, a dark Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma, this flavor of plums and Bing cherries perked the palette for our coming main course; anticipation was in the air. Adjoining each side were Yukon smashed potato and a roll of asparagus tips; a sight fit for the God of Goodness and a taste to please any King.
The company ceased all chatter and the business beforehand was indulged upon. And indulgence indeed was this fine food and drink. The serving and meal so far spanned about two hours then our table was cleared while our very competent and lovely server opened a slightly bubbly Rosa Regale from Strevi, Italy.
Aromatic and tasteful of ripened raspberries the sweetened taste created an anticipation for dessert and coffee. Then Chef Michael produced a Chambord bunt cake with chocolate raspberry ganache. It was a temptuous finale to a wonderful meal.
Over coffee we expressed our opinions amongst ourselves, Chef Michael and our hosts. The unanimous consensus was that the idea and setting was great, the meal was handled perfectly and the food was superb. Chef Michael said he already went to three shrimp from five and said they were still exploring the serving time and portions. Two and a half hours for a great meal with a patio break at half-time seemed to fit the optimum dining experience.
Jan wanted the recipes. All of us were well pleased. Whether you like to dine as a couple, foursome or want the experience of joining a group table, all requests seem to be accommodating but their intimate private area appears to be designed for less than twenty adult people. His old politics may not be credible to all but his namesake overlooking Lake George is truly a remarkable establishment and surely will become a destination to partake of beauty, friendliness and a wonderful dining experience.
Now you know why I start my home page with Buy a Gun! Just received my Valuable Life Insurance Info from AARP; you know them as the modern leaches of the elderly as opposed to the olden times blood suckers that were thought to help with physical ills. I must say though, reading their policy proposal gave me a good morning laugh.
Most large organizations make a lot of money simply lending their name to a product or, in this case, an insurance policy. AARP is no different. Then I noted I get to keep this coverage to age 80 then I get to pay much more for something, I guess, new? And premiums, meaning monthly payments, are not at a guaranteed rate but I am told only if AARP raises all the rates in my same class at the same time will they raise mine.
Well, I feel safer with my stated payment now. Well, just for a little while … until he gets all his grand plans in motion. I saved the best laugh till last. I swear, every day the crap I hear on the news is steadily worse than the day before; actually I find myself swearing at the news! When we start getting rid of the permanent fixtures imbedded in the government is the day we start improving America.
You think teachers have tenure … ever try to fire a State Worker? Today, Obama tells us that the illegal aliens will have to pay a fine, pay their back taxes and go to the rear of the line for US Citizenship; is that what he plans to do with the several hundred Somalia Muslims that recently crossed from Mexico?
They would love US Citizenship so if they are caught doing damage they can get your AG Holder to give them their days in court to ridicule you for being an Ass! I have my own way to stop border crossings.
Oh, glad you asked. BO, do you know how many folks would gladly volunteer to set up camp on a desert ridge in Texas, Arizona or New Mexico and set their sights on a moving target?
A scoped M would be a handy deterrent and a couple of boxes of. Drug smuggling would be at a halt and people in slavery would be replaced with people power. Instead of being apologetic to the commies in China get some gonads and enforce the US Immigration Laws so States like Arizona can get on with tourism instead of having to do your job!
Before the States number one business is replaced by exporting illegals. Unfortunately, deal with the devil and face the consequences has been one of the forgotten rules.
Now even that is dominated by China, want to walk to war, first place your boot order with the commies. Want to send your son or daughter in Afghanistan a combat knife or even a large pocket knife? Make sure it is less than three inches; otherwise they may hurt someone with it. That gallant bayonet charge of yesteryear; forget about it.
Our Army threw your kids bayonet away, into the scrap heap … too violent a weapon and deemed it too cruel for use in combat. The MI Garand , the weapon that won WWII and is probably still one of the greatest effective combat weapons in use today, well the Army has destroyed most of what they had left; instead of selling them to the civilian US marksmen. Heaven forbid we should have the power of the Minutemen of Remember movies where Audie Murphy stood his ground with a. Today your kid would win a Court Martial for shooting a.
Don't see much about the facts above on the crappy news … at least not knowing keeps me from swearing! To teach a kid a lesson is a great service, to learn from experience is a great teacher, to learn a lesson from a masterful teacher is a great experience.
Children of the greatest generation have faltered to teach those of the next generation about the values and sacrifices those before us have endured.
Please ask your children this question, "What is the Constitution? Did you watch the second video in the headings above, where a lineup of leading Russians refuse to shake Obama's hand?
This is "hard ball", Soviet Style. After the third handshake refusal, it becomes obvious and Obama's facial expression is priceless. Sarah Palin was spouting to the Tea Party crowd a mile away, you know the folks who rant about God, guns and Freedom. I assume there was no time in your schedule to meet and greet the street folks who will be turning your buddy to pasture in November. I also don't drink beer and I vote!
Then was appointed to the Senate and we got Obamacare. Are you now out stumping for Harry Reid so we can get Socialism in our lifetime? It is just great that good old Harry is a hunter or voted one time for our cause to keep our guns.
There is a bigger picture here, Wayne. But even good gun guys can go wrong, as you guys did. Don't repeat your stupid mistakes and give Sarah a call. It is of no use to have the right to buy and sell over the backyard fence if you can't afford to buy groceries or ammo and your grandchildren can inherit our collections but need to sell off to pay for the ridiculous Federal debt we are in.
Get real, have a cup of tea, Wayne. The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. She will also participate in special event political programming for Fox Broadcasting. It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news," Palin said in a written release.
Palin will also host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel's "Real American Stories," a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape that will debut in Prior to joining Sen. John McCain on the presidential ticket, Palin was the first woman to serve as governor of Alaska, taking the oath in As governor, she worked on improving resource development, education, health and transportation and infrastructure development.
Prior to holding the office of governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council in Alaska as well as two terms as the mayor and manager of Wasilla, and worked as an oil and gas industry regulator. Owned by News Corp, Fox News Channel is a hour general news service covering breaking news as well as political, entertainment and business news, and has been the most-watched cable news channel in the country for eight years running.
It features the top 13 programs in cable news and can be seen in more than 90 million homes. Nearly 75 years ago Roosevelt said: I don't know who wrote this piece about the "Change" that has been happening in America but the logic and the history lesson should be heeded.
I could have written it because I feel the same way, uneasy and questioning … why? Why is the Country I grew up in so different from the memories of my youth fifty years ago? Is it Progress … or are we simply repeating the dark side of history?
David Petronis … 26 October The Observation … Anonymous. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years.
The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two. We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? That is our money; yours and mine. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us?
Who asked for it? I thought this was a government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders; apparently not.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history and no longer teach our founding documents; why we are exceptional and why we are worth preserving.
Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing and school boards continue to back mediocrity. We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election, violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial, one that simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago? We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life and then allow mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic; to what purpose?
Now, our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government.
Our education system is worse than a joke I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about the list of problems is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially times ten.
Someone asked me why I bother to write Letters to Editors or commentary articles on various subjects. Was I the type of person who just wanted to see his name in print? I have found that very many young people today do not know what is happening around their lives. Very few young people, I put young at under 45 years old, read a daily paper or watch the evening news.
They seem to be too busy with daily life. Ask who the Vice President is or the name of their representatives to the State Legislature are and more than not a blank stare will be your answer. Elections have consequences and knowing who and what policy to back are important to your future. When these things are thought up they seem so reasonable, being their purpose is to curb crime, burglaries or drug use, all good targets of concern. The Schenectady City Council wants to pass a law that will allow their police to crash a private party held in a commercial building, ostensibly to stamp out drug use because there were three homicides at private parties last year.
There must be hundreds of pros and cons on that issue. Probably more a problem of who is having the party instead of the function in general. The problem seems to have solved itself though, private party bookings have moved out of Schenectady; great business outcome.
In other words, people who have a lot of money are good; people with little money are bad. I wonder who decides between the good and evil among us.
Way to go, bro! My solution; why not just lock up the filthy burglars in the first place and hide the freaking key! Point is I could not have passed their test for capitalization. But not from that friendly business city, Schenectady. I ran a gun show within the City limits some years ago and it was the only time I had to jump through hoops, pay extra cash and obtain permits to do so in over 25 years in my Show Promotion business. When our Congress and Federal workers try it out first for a year or two, talk to me then!
Or, do you see folks flying to England or Canada for medical aid? Wake up folks, smell the roses at home before you whiff the cesspool leaking out of Washington. Let your voice be heard now. Reading about these Unions is drying my throat! I love Carl Strock when he agrees with me but he can be a real … well, pain sometimes. He did show up and said hello. Gun sales would probably go even higher if that proposed legislation got wings.
I wonder, could it be that this lingering small amount of unionized workers in the private sector and the overwhelming number of governmental unions combine so that it generally costs a million dollars a mile for roads? No wonder there is so much unemployment today, the brainwashing of living minimum wages precludes workers from taking a menial job … or two, to get by while working towards something better.
It is not a permanent solution but it would put money in some pockets right now. It should not be up to the business owner to create careers out of dead end jobs. Well, not likely to be much incentive to look harder when one can now get 72 weeks of unemployment benefits; that is some paid vacation. She saw what I was writing.
I got to the Opinion Section; skip that. If I wanted your opinion I would have given it to you. Cathy says I got to get off my duff and mow the lawn. At least I can hide in the bathroom and finish the paper.
I still have the financials and the rest of the comics but may only have time for the most important. Just like the cherry with a sunday desert, I leave the best till last. What a word it is! What a scenario those two syllables can put together. Know that life is hard enough but when assumption enters a phase of it the process is usually a learning experience.
I have been in sales, in sales management and now own several businesses. I have been trained in and also taught sales, closings and time management. I am of retirement age but choose to be working. I have what some people would call a type A personality. The point is, I have lived a full life and quite probably know what I write about. Many years ago while attending a seminar, my mind was opened to a very interesting question; Who is the ass in assume, you or me?
A contractor stopped in to my gun shop and asked if I still needed brick work, we made a deal and I hired him. I knew of his work and he seemed reliable, especially after showing up on time for several days. He was working by the hour and he and I kept time schedules. When his bill came to me I assumed our hours would basically be the same; they were not.
His included leaving his house and picking up material on his way to the job and lunch time. Whether his or mine were correct was not the lesson here, the learning experience was twofold; I assumed I was paying him for brick work performed and not travel time; lessons learned, I was the ass in assume. Been there for over a hundred years so they must know and care about their business. When I phoned, the fellow who answered sure sounded like he knew what I needed and I left.
On arrival at this very large facility of cement and stone products, I found who I was talking to and we checked a color chart, picked out what I needed, ordered five, five pound boxes and pulled my vehicle up to a delivery area. He observed while I pulled my trusty pocket knife, skillfully inserted the blade to the taped box and exposed six boxes of coloring.
They were closing shortly and would be open at 7AM on Monday, no time left this Friday to go back and get an exchange. Lesson learned, I assumed I got what I paid for and hoped the problem could have been easily corrected, it was neither. I was the ass in assume. When he showed up just before 9: Moose goes down, gets the right color, leaves at 9 and returns at You know the lesson, it rhymes. You would assume when a bill comes in the mail it is correct, not always.
Assume the grocery clerk and the scanner are adding things up right and learn the lesson at home that they were wrong. When you assume, it costs you time and money. If not they may charge for the incorrect item. Never assume your grocery trip is an outing, it is a chore, a job, often a learning experience. I have an answering machine on a particular phone line and the line is set up so no outgoing calls can be made.
Cathy checked the phone bill and found a charge that my answering machine accepted a collect call. I will have to speak with it! Assume ignorance and train. One would assume that our legal system is generally correct in its outcome. On the subject of law and lawyers, today at 1PM Cathy and I go to a closing of understanding on a restaurant we wish to purchase.
Will our lawyers be on this same plane, the same field of view, the same page as we are. Donald Trump gave advice as to always be ready to walk away from a deal until the very last moment of signature.
We adhere to that advice and are willing to do so with this deal. If it is not exactly how you want it, decide beforehand on what you will do. Walk away if necessary. Never assume it will work out, it usually will not.
Yesterday I was met at my shop by a customer and I was a bit rushed for time anyway and events got carried away. I unlocked my door, put keys in pocket, turned off the alarms, turned on the lights and talked about guns. Needed to be somewhere else so when I finished I was just going to quickly lock up again and come back later. Reached into pocket for keys, went to lock the front door and found that I only had the round part hanging on the ring, only had half a key.
Proceeded to check the key hole and there I saw an object in the slot, the rest of my key? Luckily, I have an inner door which I did lock and left the outer door unlocked.
I will repair it later or call a locksmith and away I went. Back at the shop about 4: The tools went in awfully easy and I could grab nothing. I had taken a spare key and checked it to see what the end looked like, for some reason I also tried to insert it into the lock … went in just fine! History is written by the victors of wars. How can any common man actually know what history really is?
Modern times most history is documented but beyond that who knows. Just like religion, made and written for control of the sheep. We live in a matrix of bullshit, where men use psycological warfare and mind control to a very successful degree.
I must say they are geniuses at what they do. It just astounds me at how many people just stumble through life eating the shit they are fed without a second thought. If your out of the norm think for yourself and use critical thinking you need to be put away. I think that on my next spiritual adventure I will steer far away from humanity.
Animals are a lot smarter than humans for the most part. An animal forgets its own personal history and cannot extrapolate a personal future from it, a man does not forget his personal history and continuously extrapolates a personal future based on it. Sharon, True but are we actually better off than animals? I have contemplated the same thing when Iwatch my dogs having a wonderful time outdoors, paradise for them for they know not of the past or the future. We on the other hand live in the world we make for ourselves.
The one we live in today is not good. We know of our past but unwilling to change it Wars evil etc We worry about a terrible future by extrapolating our past unable to change the many evil people who share this rock with us. Definitely not the paradise my pets experience. There are now two and a half generations of blacks that are mostly illiterates and unemployable even if there were jobs for them.
Now massive immigration is pushing the situation past the point of collapse. All the moves being made are to push people into a civil war and then slavery. The plan is to eradicate the whites and it will be funny when all the liberal left wing whites who are pushing this agenda realize that they are also included on the to do list.
As for red thumbs, you get your share, but I believe DK may have the record. Given the level of intelligence and the low level of education a few of the posters we have had here over the past five years ……. Unfortunately, KyMom, Walt, and BI among others of note who made a real contribution to understanding current events …. The video was good up until they tried to sell me their investment plan. When the flag goes up beans bullets and band aids will be the order of the day.
You want your daughters sold into sex slavery by the cartels? If those fucking shitskins want their gun control, let their children get raped, fucking morons. Anyone who believes in immigration, take a Mexican family into your house and pay for their shit.
I swear American women are about a dumb as a fucking fencepost. This is why we have a patriarchy. Acid is upset about this crap but what he says is true. Be glad guys like him are around when you need some help. Just like gold confiscation, not everyone was stupid enough to do it, Those that have guns afterwards will rule if the govt.
Actually that is the only time he has made sense. He is totally correct as to all the Mexicans and other third worlders. Kiss your nation and eventually ass good bye. There will be no affirmative action for whitey. Truly scary agreeing with etch on anything. Acid, you make valid points that I agree with, but if you want respect, try showing us some respect first. I myself know a few hardcore Mexican preppers who are more Americana than the average American!
In fact, some Mexicans are taking up arms in their communities and even fighting back against the drug cartels and corrupted cops over there. It is not right to label a whole culture of people as assholes, just because some of them are assholes — and if you do so, you might as well label every single American that way too — sheep to the slaughter.
American Patriots should never be defined by race, religion, culture, or national origin. American patriots are defined by their allegiance to and their defense of, American values as enshrined by our Founding Fathers in our Founding Documents.
Your sentiments for a none-prejudiced melting pot utopia comes straight out of the NWO handbook. Freedom of speech, yeah right!
Gun control is hitting what you aim at. You want to do anything you gotta check with the state if they say you can leave. Freedom means you have to give up civilized life. They would be placed with a lesbian or gay couple. Fuckin nosey people worrying about what your getting and doing whole state is like this never used to be but this is the side affect of the nanny state.
When it goes down and the war breaks out the welfares are my enemies fuckin thugs. Open season on the welfares. Animals have no class or decentcy. They will rob you in a heartbeat. It will easy to pick out the villains. Oh the rich people are the enemy too. They stole from me and other working folks to be the savior of the welfares.
These two groups are the enemy. Man i hear ya ass hat, im from a small village in Lincoln, R. I watched the vid twice peckerwood. After reading your post, the feeling I had perched on my shoulder leads me to believe you are right. Nice sales pitch however. I do believe he does bring some validity but not enough to pay my dime and walk into the tent to see the bearded lady.
Oh yea, taxes,,,, Then you have these dumb ass fuckers in congress spending like it grows on trees! Entitled freakin government workers being dicks to you whenever dealing with them, NOTE: Good luck with that crap. This shit has been planned for a long long time. Humans are inherently stupid and easily duped look around you. The harvest is coming and there is nothing you or I can do about it. Take some assholes with us and move on to hopefully something better, I hope I get to meet you on the other side, you are a good spirit.
The time to stop this shit was centuries ago my friend. Now that we covered that, the people you spent your tax money on are taxed with the same. An endless spiral of taxes! I would like to be able to just putter on the farm, go and stalk some deer, pull in some fish, and everybody leave me alone, Can make enough to cover my expenses and just chill, but it seems every time we turn around theres something else, So WTF!
Im going to do this as a social experiment, document it all in a journal and at some point who knows, Diary of a mad man or a mad Man. We are taxed here by the amount of impervious surface, i. Roof, gravel driveway, tennis courts and other shit like that that will cause water to run off instead of being absorbed into the ground.
Plus the state keeps robbing the money out of it to pay for pet projects. I live way upstream of the Chesapeake and I will say that no matter how much they tax and spend, the Chesapeake will not likely recover from the runoff and sewage pollution. Hundreds of miles upstream, the bass have become Hermaphrodites from the hormone laden piss that is flushed daily into this river…most likely from birth control pills… and what is in the cattle waste that runs off.
Bass fishing is now illegal and done for up here. You can only shit in your own nest for so long until there are consequences. Makes me sick to see my fishing go away. Downstream, a municipality just got a huge fine for dumping over 3 million gallons of raw sewage into the river. Imagine how often this happens and no one is caught. Sure, it dilutes, but how much? Albermarle Sound is now pretty screwed too. The big halibut out of Seward Alaska are also a thing of the past as I discovered this year.
No more easy ninety pounders to catch. I may try Ketchikan this year. I also pay timber tax on my wooded land. The same with the mineral rights. When I think back, I see all of the little pieces torn out of my freedom along the way.
Back then, I was only into being a something worker with dreams of living the life I was working for. The rest are still as dumb or dumber. Ever try and convince an old fool about truth? Hell I have learned a lot in my life and adjusted my thinking accordingly. Some fools carry their false belief system to the grave. I know a lot of fools both young and old who think things will always be as they are, that theres nothing wrong with whats going on, I guess im just off or something becsuse to me Nothing seems right at the moment, at least nothing outside of my little slice here on Haleakala, We shall see though, i bet my preps will be more useful than some of these old fools artwork or young fools surf gear and electronics and dope.
When I was young, we had complaints about the govt. The new culture arrives on the heels of this propaganda. It simply moves in and takes over, like slipping a fine new glove over a numbed hand. The outcome of the war is just as devastating, but without bombs bursting , twisted bodies to bury, or rubble to rebuild. A new class, a different culture, simply takes over. Enjoying Life without Illusions, Rosenberg states,.
What is the nature of reality? What physics says it is. What is the purpose of the universe? What is the meaning of life? Why am I here? Is there a soul? Is there free will? There is no moral difference between them. As one Brit journalist said about people like Rosenberg: He should get a clue… he might be able to find one on eBay:. Watson, leading biologist and science writer of his day. It is not even possible to make a caricature of an evolution out of paleobiological facts…The idea of an evolution rests on pure belief.
In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact. Newton Tahmisian, Atomic Energy Commission. My parents never bitched much about politics both teachers. They were divorced when I was a baby so single parent from then on. Needless to say I grew up poor as hell 3 kids so I made my own entertainment and trouble lol.
I learned from friends what I could not learn myself. Having piece of shit cars forces you to learn how to fix them or else.
Same with every other thing. Analyzing construction sites I learned how to build structures. Shooting skills were learned from rifle club and grand parents and extensive reading and practice. Playing in the mountains I figured out the common sense ways to do a few wilderness things boy scouts too. I have always been self taught in any field I was interested in. If I want to know how to do something I read as much as I can and ask questions of people that know. They think there mommy will call the repairman and get it done.
Make my own things? Throw it out and buy a new one. We are truly fucked beyond belief, We have become a throw away, retarded society that wastes resources by the millions of tons. Creativity is all but gone! Kids are just stupid assed zombies looking for their next cookie. And the worst part is I am forced to pay for their dipshit education! Fuck them and their retarded zombie kids with retarded fuck up parents!
Eat shit and fuckin die you moronic parasite freaks! Get the reset over with or get me the hell out of this fucked up madhouse. For Crists sake, I built a 2 story tree house with power. With no direction whatsoever. My friend made my bike a chopper with his dads power tools same age. All from scraps collected. I look at this generation and want to puke!
Why I flew 50 combat missions in a homemade helicopter that I made out of a an old Edsel that I found in a junkyard. Well arnt you just the perfect one!
And the emperor of the US is proposing tax increases with no input from Congress among his other tricks in his dog and pony show. We need to start prepping. I think this summer is going to be a lot of protestors out there. Not all percent but does care about this country. Anyone have problems with their cursor running slow or behind or delayed. Probably being recorded but we need to speak our minds and band together.
We just want to be left alone but I believe we have to many different branches of government fighting each one and something is gonna break. I have no problem with NOT hiring someone who is incapable of filling out a page and a half fill-in-the- blank application.
Half the time the rich are the bad guys. Now the only way you are free is if you are rich. I wish someone would make up their minds. Some of it was B. Can you say the Philippians.
And if we wanted an empire we would of had it after WW2. Also your passport was only put into the works, was because several nations would NOT allow you in their country with out one. Tell me what liberties have been taken away from you, the only one that I know of is, claiming that you are a Christian and celebrating a Christian holiday in public. Which one of the bill of rights have been annulled. If there is someone to blame take a good long look in the mirror and ask yourself. Am I part of the problem or part of the solution.
For a while I was part of the problem, not any longer I check out the people I vote for. I have and will donate to a political cause, can you say Tea Party. This is not the same U. I grow up in. The fact are the facts. Only by someone else telling you about it. So listen to the people that have been there, and not someone with a political bias or want you to buy there books.
The protocols of the elders of zion says all future wars will not be for land. The freedom to purchase and own any firearms of my choice including ammo. The right to travel unencumbered. The right to free property ownership. The right to unreasonable search and siezure. The right to a trial by jury. The right to free speech. The right to peaceably assemble. The right to no taxation without representation.
Did you crawl out from under a rock? Which one of the bill of rights have been annulled…… The right to unreasonable search. The right to retain property without due compensation, etc.
They were in control the whole time fool. Damn you are a FOOL. And propagate the bullshit. I try anr tell people the truth but like you, they want no part of it! Ha Ha your kidding right? The tea party was hijacked from the start by neocons, Just another republican conservative bullshit trap.
Give Ceasar what Ceasar is due? WOW are you an idiot or what? Ya jeesus will save you. Thats all fair and right and moral huh? Just pay the man and shut the fuck up? Well back to your voting thing. Figured it out yet?
This shit was the plan all along. Your tripe was the easiest shit ever to dispense with. Glad I had it but its almost gone now. Please Enlighten me on this. Some one forgot to tell them. Choice of firearms, I have to agree with there. I own land and pay taxes on it to the State not to the feds. Thank God I do because it would be hard to chop my way there, the state maintains the roads to it.
Search and seizure, Supreme court has ruled stop and frisk unconstitutional. Now if you are driving a car and they search it, because of P. The smell of an alcoholic liquor they can, you have to remember that driving is privilege not a right.
That is a bad one. Question is what are we to do about it? I know what I would like to do, but right now all there is, is a ballot box. God forbid we have to go to the AMMO box. I have to respectfully disagree with you on this. That is what the Bible teaches from Jesus. Are you saying that you are smarter than the teaching in the Bible? No one said you have to shut up you can complain all you want.
I have no clue how old you are I thing you said in another post up a little ways you said you are Nothing wrong with that but most of them that I watched grew up with have gone one of two ways. Still drugged out or have become The professors in most of the major collages. And you see what they are teaching. No way in the world would the Lord sanction the theft by taxes that have been laid on our backs by the new generation of moneychangers.
POG I know and I agree with you about the rights. I know that there are some where around 17 books that belong to the New Testament That the Roman Catholic Church has not let the public see. Protocols have happened and will happen again and again until man learns another way or there is no more man on this earth. Please enlighten me on who the true Zionist are.
So many people have different ideas. Now some say it is the Jews, remember Jesus was a Jew and practiced Judaism Some say it is the Illuminati, some say it is the people that worship the Devil. Please help me here, Thanks Sgt. You might check out biblestudysite. Also, do yourself a favor and go deeper into the Jewish religion, SGT.
Past the Torah into the Talmud. There they call my Savior and I believe you believe Him to be your Savior the vilest most filthy language you can imagine. Apparently you have never bothered to peruse through all the links left to you for information. It is the Zionist who is doing all the devils work. Are they all jews. But a damned big portion of them are. And the fed reserve who is financing all the worlds woes is owned, lock, stock, and barrel by them.
What is it about the articles written about the Rothschilds, the City of London, the Federal Reserve, the quotes of presidents, popes, etc. I am amused at the trolls answer to posts about the Zionists and their lackeys. By the way, iamthewitness. If you truly care about truth it is worth the time to look it up. Might change how you look at the world. I doff my cap to people such as you who take criticism in their stride… Well done to you Granny.
Of course you are right…simply because you are a lover of state and all it entails. Law is a different thing. There has always been laws. It could be handed down by God if you believe or just simple things in nature.
A simple law of nature. Get over it there will always be laws and rules to live under. Lover of the State. Lover of my Country and what it stands for. Can you say that?
If you can I say thanks for your service. The rules you abide by as an enforcer are revenue extraction rules where no harm is caused and there are no victims. Presumption of guilt where no actual crime has been committed. Let just take seat belt. Now if someone would have enforced the rules, and because he knew the rules he gets a fine, but he would be alive today.
Money is the only thing you can take from people. Sarge, Seatbelts, theres a good point! Sorry the kid was killed but things like seatbelts are the choice of those who operate the vehicle. I was in a rollover once with 3 guys in the truck. None of us were wearing seatbelts. No one was seriously hurt but had we had seatbelts we would be dead! They would have pinned us in the seat while the cab was crushed. So see it works both ways, seatbelts can KILL too. Defending things like seatbelt laws is just giving credibility to the nanny state.
I am a grown man and am responsible for my OWN safety. Two young boys I know where driving down the road not speeding or doing anything wrong.
