    Just making conversation

    I was at my local sporting goods store standing in line waiting to check out. The person in front of me was rung up and his total came to $17.76. Being the puppy dog type and seeing that the cashier was cute, the following conversation ensued.

    Me: That was a good year.

    Cashier: Yes it was.

    Customer. Not for everyone.

    Me: Hmmm. Well, I suppose the British weren't particularly thrilled with that year.

    Customer: No they weren't. And look now. The entire world hates us. We should have stayed a British colony.

    Me (thinking to myself): OK, I live in the liberal bastion of the Pacific Northwest. Sort of what I expected. Just hold your tongue.

    Customer (looking at my purchase of two 250 round boxes of UMC .40 ammunition): Uh oh. Look at what you are buying. I'd better be nice to you.

    So I am in line next to a liberal idiot who hates his country and the only reason he is being nice to me is that I may be armed.

    I may consider mail order.

    I grow weary of people blaming America for the rest of the world hating us. First off not everyone hates America and second, those that do are jealous of our constitutional freedoms.

    I will usually counter the “Everybody hates America” comment with “If that is true then why do we have such a problem with illegal aliens who will use any means to get to America?” more often than not it brings on a blank stare and slack jawed look indicating logic overload to a simple minded liberal.

    Well, it is Portlandistan, after all...

    I escaped from that liberal cesspool 10 years ago, haven't lost a minute's sleep over it.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    If for one full year the United States would completely cut off all involvement with the remainder of the planet the entire world would sure appreciate and love us again.

    This planet is only able to survive and function because of the United States of America.

    That is the reason why some countries do not like the U.S.
    Because they know that they owe their very existence to us.

    Jealousy and envy fosters hatred.

    What a moron. Maybe you just put out a "come bother me" vibe - he might have picked up on that. You were polite though, which wasn't required. So good for you!

    ... as if you'd spontaneously combust into a criminal and step up to murder.

    Goes to show how invasive and insidious the propaganda and dumbing-down process has been. One step at a time toward becoming mere "batteries" in the machine. And they don't even see it.

    This week, I pick up an M1 Carbine .30cal, an AK Krinkov-style 7.62x39mm, begin pressing a KelTec PF-9 into service, and relax after sending several letters to my elected reps on a variety of issues. My own li'l "1776" moment, I suppose. My "Obama" moment comes in a couple months when a Remington 870P 12ga SBS comes through. Gotta love clean livin' !
