   Fireball27  Don't you just love the new Net Neutrality rules? Some people do, and I find it mind blowing. Over 300 pages of new rules, none of these idiots have seen, and they are all for it! Don't they remember the "we have to pass it to see what's in it" Obamacare bill?

   Uno  As I have often said: Welcome to the New Communism of unnecessary, over-reaching, over-bearing, out-of-control, dictatorial “regulation” where the convoluted, wrap-around, pretzel-logic of Leftist Liberal “Utopia” can find you guilty of just about anything if they look hard enough!

   Phooey  I received your e-mail Wrightwinger. If you were banned you would not be able to post/comment at all. If you want something to stay put send it to me and I'll post it for you. It would be a terrible loss for us if you gave up.

   StormCnter  Has anyone suggested to WW that he change his browser? I find that Chrome isn't reliable on Sometimes it works fine and sometimes lots of the text disappears. Firefox or even IE are more consistent. I use all three browsers for various jobs.

   Ole buzzard  This was written by a Facebook friend, and I found it so profound, so reflective of how I feel about this country and where we are headed, that I have a need to share.

Reagan. Obama. A study in two Americas. On the one hand, a future where America is strong, proud and capable of defending itself and others against tyranny and terrorism. On the other, the spirit of appeasement wreaks its insidious influence targeted at corrupting and destroying a culture known throughout its history as the "shining light on a hill".

America must choose between these two visions. The debate is not yet over, the future not yet set in the stone collar of despotism.

Liberty and freedom DO NOT EXIST in the yellowed pages of long ago penned philosophies and declarations. They DO NOT EXIST in the halls of ANY GOVERNMENT and are not found in the group heart of governments.
Liberty and freedom reside in the minds and hearts of individuals. A child learning to fly a kite, a teenager striking out to create their own business, a mother devoted to fanning the flame of liberty that resides in the springs UNBIDDEN in EVERY person that takes their FIRST BREATH.

These are the places, among many, where Liberty and freedom reside.
Do not look to those in government to act in defense of these expressions, for as surely as the sun rises each morning, governments will, bit by bit, inch by inch and mind by mind STEAL the IDEA of liberty and freedom from the minds and hearts of its people.

And, in spite of the powerful efforts of our founders in creating a Constitution founded on the principle of defense of liberty and freedom, THEY KNEW...THEY KNEW!!! that it was as inevitable as the press of the sea's tides that THIS government they created would also surely succumb to the siren song of power and despotism.

And it has come to pass. The only question is what will we, the ones that have eyes to see and ears to hear the swan song of America, DO...............

   Escaped commieny  don't know any more Buzz, I have spent 6 years trying to educate and motivate, am a volunteer for True the Vote in Florida, work with our local county, even the next one over, it seems, people have given up and just feel hopeless to change the destruction of our great Nation. We see and hear and I still believe there are enough of us to bring back our founding Fathers' dream.

   Escaped commieny  foot note after yesterday's ammo EO
"Since 1915, officials of seven governments "gone bad" have committed genocide, murdering at least 56 million persons, including millions of children. "Gun control" clears the way for genocide by giving governments "gone bad" far greater freedom to commit mass murder." FTA

   Phooey  Thanks Buzz. Tell Yotty I miss her Polka dots.

Sincerely, I miss your wife's brilliance and am truly sorry still asking her forgiveness.... and, Gerty's.

   Gerty  All is in the past, Mr.Phooey. I am so grateful for your words and look forward to more of your wisdom.
Yesterday at 19:13 EST .

   Surfhut  Love seeing everyone on this thread.

WAN2, agreed that our freedom is not for the faint of heart. Buzz asks what do we DO about it? We get involved in politics from local positions to POTUS. We elect people who promise to represent us. Once in power, they do not represent us. I'm by nature an optimist but admit to be terribly discouraged because I don't know what else to do.

WAN2, your sentence "A land of plenty eventually goes soft and succumbs to bread and circuses" speaks loud and clear to me. We have become a country of people who feel entitled, from welfare recipients to the halls of power. Again, I don't know what to do except work and pray.

   Ole buzzard  Surf, that's why I got involved in the Convention of States project. Since the adoption of the Constitution, there have been over 400 applications for a convention submitted by the several states. But since the verbiage of them varied, Congress has never been compelled to call one. Now we have coordinators in individual state legislative districts across the country, and we are presenting applications in the state legislatures that all read the same! Three states (Florida, Georgia, and Alaska ) have already submitted their applications. There are 28 more considering their applications in their current legislative sessions (Oklahoma is one of them ). We only need 34 applications to compel Congress to call the convention. All they do is name the time and place, and then they are out of it. The amendments that will be proposed will be aimed at returning fiscal discipline to Washington (abolishing the IRS, balanced budget, Fair Tax ), term limits for the House and Senate (no more career politicians ), and restoration of the States' role in the federal government (repeal of the 17th Amendment ).

Those are reasonable, and ATTAINABLE, goals.

   Surfhut  Convention of the States project has been rolling around in my mind for a long time, but I've been feeling so defeated that I never seriously looked into it. Until now. I've spent a couple of hours researching the project, specifically progress in Oklahoma.

Thank you, Buzz, for waking up my inner optimist/upstart.

   Lonestar Jack  I do not believe in coincidences where this administration is concerned so I don't trust the timing of the release of a "terrorist" threat on the Mall of America and the budget funding of HSA.

Where of where has the Bergdahl verdict gone?
What is his current ranks and pay grade?
Is he spending time in the stockade?

Question that need answers for this old 82nd Airborne sergeant.
February 25 at 14:28 EST .

   Gerty  First of all, Mr.Lonestar, thank you for your service, Sir.

I fear both you and I will grow a lot older before we get the truth about the Bergdahl affair. It is a National disgrace!
February 25 at 16:29 EST .

   Safetydude  Oooops, Gerty; I'll bet Sergeant Lonestar was born by parent joined in holy matrimony.

(Jumping out of perfectly good airplanes...go figure )
February 25 at 20:40 EST .

   Safetydude  s/b 'parents' joined in holy matrimony.
February 25 at 22:27 EST .

   Gerty  Mr.Dude--don't know if you meant to be funny or not but I can't stop laughing about "Jumping out of perfectly good airplanes..."

You're talking to someone whose grade-school ambition was to be the first woman Air Force pilot! Who, by some awful twist of fate, today refuses to get on a plane for ANY reason!
22 hours ago .

   Safetydude  Ms Gerty,
I retired from the AF as a senior NCO, so when you referred to Lonestar, also an NCO, as 'sir' I was reminded of an old rejoinder; 'don't call me Sir, my parents were married', which alludes to Officers, who are addressed as Sir, as not being born to married parents which made them bas**rds. The other response was; 'don't call me Sir, I work for a living'.
As for jumping out of an airplane...I'll pass.

   Uno  Fun Facts to Know and Tell

A little know fact is that shortly after the mid-term elections, the GLØbamboozler was not feeling very well and went to consult a psychic about the date of his death.
Closing her eyes, consulting her glass globe, and silently reaching into the realm of the future, she finds the answer:
“You will die on a Jewish holiday.”
“Which one?” Obama asks nervously.
“It doesn’t matter,” replied the psychic.
“Whenever you die, it’ll be a Jewish holiday.”

You will be AMAZED at how scary true and accurate this test is.

Pick a number from 1-9.
Multiply that number by 3.
Add 3.
Multiply by 3 again.
Your total will be a two digit number.
