  1. I think we still win. The war would have a different course. Many fewer set piece battles like Monmouth and Saratoga more like the Cowpens/King's Mountain. The British would have probably held the coastal ports. But it would have been difficult to hold the interior without massive troop numbers and the scorched earth policy they used in Scotland to break the Jacobites. In the end the value they could derive from the colonies would have been less than the cost of holding it.
  2. Yes, this is very similar to what the Germans did prior to WWII. Reoccupying territory they once held with German minorities. If they were to gobble up large portions of eastern Europe, the Caucasus mountains, the Baltic states, or central Asia it becomes even bigger. Putin sees the weakness and he will push to grab as much as he can while our weakness continues.
  3. Put naval assets in the Black Sea and move more to the Aegean/Med. Freeze all the personal bank accounts of high ranking Russians in the US. Push for Georiga to enter NATO. Push for more LNG export capacity so that we could supply the Europeans in case the Russians cut off the pipelines. Expel their ambassador from the US and recall ours from Moscow.
  4. Hate to hear that about Pops thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family
  5. Take all the time you need Bigbens42. It will be Friday night or Saturday afternoon before I'll be around a computer again to respond.
  6. I think it would be great if we could all make up my own definitions for stuff too. But, the people who do that for a living have spoken on what a tool is take your disagreement up with them. Just because you view your brother as a moron doesn't mean that he is any less worthy of exercising his God given rights. The right to keep and bear arms is very different than the privilege of driving a car. If it wasn't I doubt many of us could pass the test that would be enacted to be able to exercise our freedoms of speech, press, or assembly. Too many people think all tools are toys. Everyday people
  7. While I am still self debating some issues with the "assualt" type rifles, I think we need to make sure understand the intended purposes of the 2nd amendment. It is not for hunting or sport shooting etc, it was/is to protect ourselves from the government. In the day, the musket was an "assault" weapon; an instrument of war. I believe our founders certainly understood the fear a government would/could have of an armed citizenary. That 1776 assault rifle was a Kentucky or Pennsylvania black powder long rifle. It was used at long range to make widows out of the wives of British officers.duri
  8. Thanks for the years Clint. I wish you a happy and successful life after football.

  11. 6. Charles Whitman- Killed 14 and wounded 32 in Austin, Texas in 1966. Weapons used: 12-gauge shotgun, Remington 700 6mm bolt-action hunting rifle, a .35 caliber pump rifle, a .30 caliber carbine, a 9mm Luger pistol, a Galesi-Brescia .25-caliber pistol and a Smith & Wesson M19 .357 Magnum revolver, a machete, and 3 knives. He killed his mother and wife with the knives before embarking on his shooting spree. He was later found to have a glioblastoma in the hypothalamus. Also he may have been under the influence of amphetamines at the time as they had been prescribed to him. 7. Howard
  12. So when she isn't in power she believes the legislative branch of government is irrelevant?
  13. It is pointless you can buy any weapon that is available at a gun show from private citizens. Look in the want ads of any paper or thrifty nickel at least in the south. You will see on any given week AKs, SKSs, and ARs listed all legal. Not to mention many semiautomatic handguns. Just in case you are wondering reality trumps all this feel good logic. Are fully automatic weapons as widely available in this country as semi-automatic weapons? If not, why do you suppose is the main reason? $$$ Sorry, but I don't understand. Please expand. $$$ = They're too expensive. So a
  14. I don't think guns are the problem. It may just be that mentally ill people need treatment for mental illness. If you were to ban all firearms tomorrow, what would happen? There would still be millions of guns out there for people to commit crimes with. And if they are crazy enought to commit murder (which is illegal) with a gun, they aren't going to be detered because the gun itself is illegal. I wasn't disagreeing with your post at all. Just laughing at the paper for availing themselves of armed protection while trying to make pariahs out of private citizens for doing the same thing.
