MFL: That's because once he got in office and had to read the daily intelligence reports he realized his narrow minded progressive ideology was bullshiat.


You must not have paid attention on the campaign. He hit McCain from the right on foreign policy, in multiple ways. He beat the drum that he would surge in Afghanistan, that he would have no problem sending a strike team into Pakistan if actionable intel showing bin Laden's location arose, and said he would shift many more resources into intelligence/spec ops work and international relations rather than simply invading and swinging a big American dick around.

He's done everything he's promised regarding foreign policy, and has handled new problems particularly well (Libya, for example).

dittybopper: More than likely, based upon his age, he's from Gun Culture 1.0, not Gun Culture 2.0. Gun Culture 1.0 is perfectly fine with requiring permits and such to keep the, erm, undesirables from owning and carrying guns.


You forget that the NRA was originally very friendly with blacks in the South, operating as a force to arm them against the violent racism of the organizations that later became the KKK. The original founders were generally northerners, and people like Heston marched with Martin Luther King Jr.

Is that a Gatling gun in the background of the photo? That's the same gun Union forces used to mow down many Confederate soldiers. Is Mr. Keller tacitly expressing his support for them Damn Yankees to march down here to Dixie and stir up the nigra race?

Open up a business that caters to "your kind" and profit.

The man hasn't harmed anyone. Nobody to the best of my knowledge can show that they have been harmed by his actions.


Oh, except no one will give your kind a loan, or rent your kind space for a business, or provide products to your kind..

Are you really this incredibly ignorant of history of this type of discrimination in the US? Or is it that you just think that it was OK?

Headso: Tyee: Seems to me he should have the right to refuse service to whomever he wants, after all, it his business not mine or the governments.

I think we already went through this in the 60s...


Ridiculous, isn't it? 2011 and we've still got people who think this is an acceptable way to do business.

This slack-jawed yokel can be as racist and ignorant as he pleases, but when he's running a business and wants to be certified to teach these courses, then his ignorant ass is required to follow the laws of the land.

The state ought to strip him of his license and tell him he's now free to be as racist as he wants without any hindrance from the evil government.

Uncle_Slacker: For those remarking about the hat:

My father wears what is called a "muleskinner" when he is out cutting the grass. Cutting the grass of course meaning bush hogging the hundred acre pasture.

It keeps most of the sunlight off of him while he's on the tractor, so it certainly has a function. He got it from the Amish straw hat maker just up the road, and it's a fairly popular product 'round these parts from what I gather.


Does your father wear it indoors?

I went to HS for one year down the road in Llano and I can confirm that that area of Texas is chock full o' rednecks, hicks and ignorant ass backwoods asswipes.
I dated a girl who lived in a plywood and tarpaper house in the middle of a mesquite thicket. She was really smart and cute but her parents were shut-ins who lived off of welfare.

sinschild: Strangely enough, there was never an issue with gun control until it seemed the darkies might get their hands on them. The Saturday night special laws and such were created because bigots feared armed minorities.


True that!
I've always found it odd that usually those that push laws that come down hardest on minorities are usually the ones that mantel themselves as being "there to help them." It's almost like they want to keep them down so that they will remain in power "to help" more.

Yeah. I'm not sure how you can really prove at this point that he's denied service to anyone. But, I think taking into account his intent is enough to get him some punishment.

You realize that putting out a public statement saying he will not train certain folks due to their religion or ethnicity is pretty much the same thing, right?

bubo_sibiricus: hicksfa2: Jim Crow laws in essence was the government telling private business how to conduct their operations, and provided actual legal ramifications for violating the statues.

Right, and without the backing of businesses, Jim Crow would have stood for the entire 100 years of its existence.

*spit*


Jim Crow still stands in some jurisdictions, especially so-called 'liberal' ones. The permitting process to own a handgun in states like New York, and in cities like DC and Chicago, disproportionately effect minorities, just like they were designed to do*, even though they are written to be facially race neutral.

dr_blasto: Ikam: shivashakti: I'm not a Democrat, but I still don't really understand what Obama's done to inspire such hatred.

That has been a bit of a head-scratcher for me too. The right paints him as this fringe liberal when nothing could be further from the truth, to me he seems to be very centrist, something leaning irritatingly to the right for my taste.

Obama is only as liberal as the mid to late 90's Republican Congresses were. When his primary policies are all sourced from previous Republican and conservative sources, he is firmly center-right to full-on right-wing. Outside of DADT, a policy his justice department continued to defend in court, and pulling DOJ defense of DOMA, he has:
1. continued Bush tax cuts
2. signed PATRIOT act renewal
3. ramped up deportations and illegal immigrant raids
4. ramped up raids on medical marijuana
5. bombed a nation
6. deployed troops to a foreign nation
7. firmly stuck to the Bush timeline on Iraq
8. used military power to target and kill individuals in foreign nations
9. corporate giveaways through monetary policies
Doesn't sound very liberal to me.

He must have some fundamental difference, perhaps one that someone could obviously see in a picture.


But Obama is doing all that stuff for the coming NWO. Republicans did it for are freedoms.

Now that he's advertised his stupidity and has the Texas DPS up his ass, I wouldn't be surprised if some muslim shows up to put this guy's credo to the test. Mason is just a couple hours away from Austin, and there's gotta be several muslim Austinites that would find it worth the drive so they can get some attention for themselves.

How do you feel about the ACLU?

They put GUNS&AMMO magazine back on the shelves a few years ago when some grocery stores began to remove them and other "gun" mags from their racks.


ACLU protects the US Constitution.


NRA protects the slime trail that leads to a pot of money.

NRA uses lies born from fear mongering in order to make millions off dumb and misinformed rednecks. Despite the landmark Supreme Court decision a while back they are still brainwashing idiots into believing there is this "Liberal Gun-Grab Conspiracy"

I have been legally purchasing firearms since 1986.
I have NEVER once had any problems.

Clinton,Obama...never have "taken" any of my guns or stood in the way of my rights. I own "assault weapons" and have a conceal-carry license.

No problems.


NRA promised George W would "protect our guns" and yet the only REAL "gun-grab" I am aware of is what happened during the Katrina debacle.

No, but a store is a public accommodation, and they aren't allowed to discriminate based on race, color, etc. He has the legal right to be a racist dick in private. For instance, if it were his private guns, he'd be within his rights not to sell guns to Muslims. Since he runs a store, though, he has allow it, or he can be sued.

It is, of course, OK to discriminate against socialists, even at a store. Walk in wearing a Che Guevara shirt, and he'd be within his rights not to sell to you.

I understand what the law is, but I also understand that it is utterly wrong. The government has no business telling a private person how they must operate their private business, and whom they must do business with. The 5th and 14th amendments are pretty clear on property rights. We've allowed the government to usurp the natural rights of owners, and it is sad. Sure but what can be bad about making a racist sell to everybody? Because it is a slippery slope. Now you have the government telling you what items you can sell, when you can sell them, when you have to be closed if you sell certain things, what can or can not go on in your business, how many of certain types of businesses can be in an area, what businesses are allowed in an area period. It's a travesty that we bend over and take as Americans, all in the name of the public good farking the rights of an individual.

Uhhh, this isn't a second amendment issue. He isn't denying their right to bear arms, he just doesn't want to teach them. If you are going to call out a douchebag for being a douchebag at least be correct. He is a douchebag but it has nothing to do with the second amendment.

"If you are a socialist liberal and or voted for the current campaigner in chief, please do not take this class. You have already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision asunder the law."

So...voting for Obama was...illegal? Or something? Wut.

I'm pretty sure he's trolling us. I'm invoking Poe's law.
