Ablejack: How do you to stop a bad guy with book?!


Have him hold the book on his chest and shoot a .45 through it?

Flamethrower?

Grabbing at straws...

Secret Master of All Flatulence: CuttySupreme: Not a big suprise that the neck-bearded, liberal, obese, computer programmers of Fark don't take kindly to this news.

I hate to say it, but I only come here now when I want to see what people I largely don't respect are thinking.  It's like going to DU...it often leaves me feeling soiled after the fact.

BTW:  [i135.photobucket.com image 694x313]

I didn't pay over $100 for any of them.


Fark isn't quite as bad as DU, but it's close.  Most people here would suck King Obama off if they got the chance.

According to WND, "Safe" teaches readers how to prepare for floods, fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, "and more."

Chapter 1: Floods. If a flood happens, shoot it.
Chapter 2: Fire. If you are ever in a fire, shoot it.
Chapter 3: Hurricanes. Should a hurricane violate your home, shoot it.

and so on.

I look for Martin Luther King Blvd......and then I try to get away from that street as quickly as possible.

I wonder why gun enthusiasts have a reputation as frightened bedwetters?

cowgirl toffee: Does it give tips on how to drink your own pee?


Practice drinking your pee in non-emergency situations.  Substitute it for other things you would normally drink, like coffee or soda.  That way, when an emergency inevitably happens, you'll be the one relaxing with a nice tall glass of urine.

rattchett: TheShavingofOccam123: Not_The_Target_Market: Car_Ramrod: MontanaDave: factoryconnection: Wayne LaPierre is better at his job than just about anyone is good at their job.  He gets people to join the NRA (adding customers), he gets people to buy guns and ammo (pleasing the advertisers) and he keeps the politicians in line (keeping customers and advertisers happy) and no matter what he says, more people sign up.

I'm not saying he's a good man, but he's a good salesman.  Maybe not a good book salesman, though.

This isn't about making money on book sales. It is all about generating leads.

The leads are weak.

Harriet and Blah-blah Nyborg....

I can't decide whether that is one of the greatest movies ever made or one of the worst. It obviously is a screenplay adapted from a stage play. But some of the acting is amazing. But some of the acting is atrocious. The problem is I have troubles deciding what the great acting is and what the terrible acting is.

Jack Lemmon was amazing. I just can't make up my mind about the rest of them. All right, Ed Harris was amazing in his nuance.

But Alec Baldwin? Dustin Hoffman? Alan Arkin? Kevin Spacey? I can't decide whether they're amazing or terrible.

Dustin Hoffman? It's not Death of a farking Salesman.

Or is it?

Also, the leads aren't weak. You're farking weak.


You're right. That was Al Pacino. But I think Pacino did his best work years earlier.

Actually, around here, being armed goes with the job description.  Of course, that's a "tool of intimidation" and not for "self-defense"...which explains how cops came to be armed in the first place...because, as agents of the State, they didn't give up their personal right to be armed.

Secret Master of All Flatulence: Takeshi6400: I've never quite understood this American obsession with preparing for impending disaster.  I've never seen it in another country.  I've met educated, rational people who have thousands of rounds of ammunition and months supplies of food for some massive disaster.  I know we all watch The Walking Dead and think, "that would be awesome," but it's not going to happen.

It's a good investment.  On the day that the Sandy Hook Massacre happened, the value of my stockpiled ammo went up an insane amount.  Hell, you can't even get ammo COMPONENTS now.  Six cents for a fecking PRIMER???

/wishes he was joking...


So cash in.  Sell everything you've got, now that the market is high.  Then... sit on your hands for a year... and wen prices are back down to normal, buy an equivalent amount of ammo or components or whatever gun-nut stuff it is you collect.  Then you have extra money left over, having exploited the short-term bubble in ammo (or whatever) components.

Do it.  Be a business man.

Whoa, I hit a nerve.

Sorry. I meant overly emotional and fragile frightened bedwetters, seething with anger and lashing out at the slightest perceived provocation.

As an avid sports shooter (not a hunter) Wayne LaPierre was the sole reason that I let 20 years of NRA membership lapse.  This was 5-6 years ago, I couldn't take this jackass telling me how to vote to support HIS personal beliefs, nothing more.  That and the magazines were so shiatty, they weren't even worth half of the membership fee.  Once upon a time, the benefits were worth the price alone.  Then the price was to help support the cause.  Later, I didn't want to support HIS personal causes.

Long. LONG ago I was a youth member - I was into hunting and outdoor stuff in general, and that was what they were about.
Then, in the late sixties, they started morphing into the John Birch Society with Guns, and I took a fast fade.

If only they didn't send out 6 letters or phonecalls from the ILA a month, during every election cycle.  That was pretty much when I stopped - don't try to tell me who to vote for in any election.  That sort of absolute fearmongering struck a wrong chord.  I can always have a boating accident if anything needs to disappear.  The NRA stopped supporting sportsmen years ago.  Notice the PIP/ADD insurance some time.  Compare it to 20 years ago.  They only cover injury if it's at an official NRA function.  It used to be for anything, ever.  A minor money-saving quibble, but it's indicative.

It's easy to insult a group of people you refuse to understand.  The NRA protects your rights even while you insult us.  At some point, you might understand what we've been getting at all this time.  Or not.

You're welcome.  Even if you don't deserve it.

Protects our rights? Really? 'Cause I'm pretty sure Saint Wayne's solution to school shootings was to create a police state and put police everywhere.

Papers please, citizen.
