    Attitude of Gratitude

    I am grateful for:
    - God
    - Family
    - Country (Liberty, all who serve, etc.)
    - TSA front line (poor suckers )
    - My guns!
    - The fact that I am coming to the top of TTGunLeather's 6 month wait list
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    I'm grateful for:

    ~ Salvation through Jesus Christ
    ~ My wife and family
    ~ My health
    ~ Living in what still is the greatest country in the world
    ~ A job

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I couldn't have said it better.

    We all have so many things to be thankful for, and one of those at the top of the list is living in a place where we can express our mutual desires to protect our freedom.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    I am grateful for all who protect us, all who labor for us. The miners, for example. The long haul truckers. The railroad crews and the power company crews, and the city's water department crews. I'm grateful for our innovators and creators of the things which give us real wealth through comfort in our daily life.

    I'm even grateful for our slimy politicians who somehow do manage to run our country in spite of themselves and in spite of our moaning and groaning.

    I am thankful that we live in a country that is not perfect but where we have freedom and liberty.
    I am thankful that turkey is cheap and plentiful.

    I am thankful for Jesus Christ, who was obedient even to death on a cross that I might be saved.
    ... for my husband and son.
    ... for my Pastor and for brothers and sisters in Christ.
    ... for encouragement through Scripture.
    ... for my pistols, rifles, and ammo.
    ... for liberty and those who are willing to lay down their lives to protect it.
    May the name of Christ be exalted in all things,

    All well said. I can't think of anything to add to the above sentiments.

    We in America have so many things to be thankful for it would be impossible to list them all. God bless America.

    I'm grateful for a lot of things. Seeing the next sunrise tops the list. Knowing my friends and family are okay. Then....there's this forum.

    Ram Rod, you're right. Waking up on the right side of the grass is a biggie!
