I would rather you have a 30-30 or a 45-70, but we have what we have. My largest caliber rifle is a .357 lever action. I’d rather hit the range but have a tree that snapped blocking it but didn’t die. I didn’t have a high paying union job so I had to budget over a longer period for purchases. Huge difference from not being able to continue working (disability) and choosing not to work.

My 30:30 is a Winchester lever action. Was a tip from a customer after putting ina furnace... my Henry is a 22 lever action. still in box, never fired, from my late father in law.

I am home on disability right now myself... after 31 years sheet metal work.... hurt my hand really bad at home

Exhibit 1 You just put a slightly different tread on the homophobe slur mentioned above. I've never seen you post anything positive or even slightly fun. It's always bitter, angry and negative. I've not even seen you unbend in the personal forums. The best of the lefties here do that, and we all have fun.
a reply to: ketsuko

Never anything fun? I used to do the football thing? That was fun. not sure what "unbend in the personal forums" actually means...

Maybe I havent, and I will tell you why... I am not a trump supporter. You people will look up my past post/response and cut me down....

I brought home a rescue dog a few weeks ago and wanted to just post about him... but nah... people here are mean...

I am a union sheet metal worker and most people here hate unions, I cut a finger off and battling to save my thumb right now as I type, but if I mention that I would be belittled somehow,

I cannot believe that I have never posted a good OP? but if you say so....

just out of curiosity, do you say the same thing to those who only post anti dem threads? ask yourself that.


did you really just wine about things you didn't do, and about what people never said to you?

It's time to unplug. If all you do is come to political forums to tell everyone how awful Trump is, yea, you are going to have to back up your bitch, or be slapped down. But damn, grow at least a tiny pair and post elsewhere and see what happens.

What are you talking about..

By definition the only ones working for the betterment are liberals..



Conservatives are trying to keep things the same, AKA CONSERVE the traditional order..



It blows my mind how conservative media has convinced people that Webster’s dictionary is lying to them...


Just once if people looked up the vast majority of the words Fox News uses , they do not mean what you think it does lol..


For example globalist does not mean Illuminati lol..


No one on planet earth considers themselves a “leftist” ..


Conservative= the establishment, the status quo

Liberal= change in a new direction

Falls under agree with us or else.


Nice try, but you know that's the Republicans saying that.



Im not too sure thats true anymore, honestly. It certainly is in some individuals, but I feel it was a lot more rampant/accurate 10+ years ago.

Ive never found those on the right more open to discussion than now. If I had to bet on it years ago, I would have put everything on them responding in-kind to the amped up zealotry on the "left." Instead, I have seen the response be quite different.

I do still see conversion attempts and such (youre a conservative now Serdgiam!), but I feel that is pretty natural human behavior even if Im definitely not a fan.

That is, unless you either are, or are perceived to be a woke cultist. But a lot of people across literally the entire political spectrum feel similarly.

I think a lot of this would be easier to examine and discuss if we started understanding this religion outside of the political spectrum. Admittedly though, its a pretty sure thing that if they have a (D) next to their name, they are probably a member.

The premise put forward by ahab here is at the very core of what got me excommunicated. I was never willing to blindly support ideals without realistic paths to achieve them, and this led to pretty vicious interactions from people who used to be considered "friends." Keeping in mind.. this falling out occurred 10-15 years ago.

I strongly believe its all intentional though. The "mainstream" may be without much actual plans beyond "moar moneh and laws," but I have little doubt its being used to pursue very, very specific plans that even the wokest individual arent going to like when all is said and done.

One of my problems with the Democrats is personified by Mayor Pete.

We all know that the left has a huge problem with Christians and Christianity, specifically the idea of sin as well as the idea of it as the dominant oppressor religion.

However, Mayor Pete is a prog darling because he's a progressive Christian and tends to couch all their favorite issues in terms of God and sin. They think that will win over Christians to their side plus I suspect it makes their nethers tingle to have someone they know is problematic theologically (married gay) so openly lecture Christians on God and sin like Mayor Pete does.

My problem is that for a long time the left has screamed bloody murder whenever a politician, particularly a possibly right leaning one, has dared to utter the "G" word. It's a violation of separation of church and state and it will bring in theology. Right now, certain other candidates are all very busy accusing judicial candidates of being unfit for their appointments simply because they are of any religious affiliation! But they never have attacked Mayor Pete for his very, very open religious stances all during the campaign.

Not only that, but the same leftists who are clearly enjoying Mayor Pete's sermons from the podium are likely many of the same who bastardize the bit of scripture about "Judge not ...", the meaning of which is that we are not to condemn anyone to Hell - that's God's job (Christ's now). But the left has turned it into the best bit of moral relativist saying ever. They want it to mean that no one is supposed to tell anyone that they're doing anything wrong, ever. It's right in line with moral relativism which says that you can tell yourself what's right and wrong, but your personal rights and wrongs are not to interfere with anyone else's which is just a fancy way of saying there is no real right or wrong at all. After all, even if you won't do a thing, if you're all right with someone else doing it, then that thing is OK by you, right? Either wrong is wrong, or wrong is only as wrong as someone else's unwillingness to engage in it.

But here comes Mayor Pete doing plenty of judging, just like they say they don't want anyone to do. Plenty of sermonizing and lecturing and moralizing. All kinds of talk about God and Christ ... and there's no outrage, no worries about judging or theocracy or separation of church and state.

Yeah, I'd never, ever vote for him, but so far, he is my favorite Democrat candidate because of what he tells us about the left.

No one actually backs any position they rail against, except that trump is a dumpster fire.. 60% of Americans agree with that..

Besides that it is all mental masterbation so they feel like victims..

There is no large group of Americans who want ANYTHING the republicans rail against..

Abortion to the last second ....


Banning all the guns...


People marrying animals..

Criminals from other countries comming here..

No one hates the troops..

They are all ridiculous logical fallacies, most slippery slope.. none mean anything..

Why not post about your rescue dog?

I don't care about your political affiliations if we're talking about pets ... unless someone else brings it up.

Now, if you named your dog something like Orange Man Bad, I can't help you there, but most people aren't going to do that to a poor dog, not even a golden retriever.

And yet ... Democrat politicians endorse all these positions?

Abortion right up until the moment of birth, some even want to be able to off babies if they survive the procedure and want to make that legal. New York went so far as to remove legal protections for the unborn in the case of murder of a pregnant woman when they made it legal to abort up to the last second before birth. Then they applauded and the Empire State Building was lit up with special colors to celebrate it.

And yet, just about every Democrat candidate has endorsed that position. If you don't understand that's what they mean, then you are ignorant about firearms. Just about every weapon on the market is a semi-auto these days, and they're talking mandatory buy backs and confiscations.

They all support open borders policies that make it easy to allow criminals from other countries to come here.

No, you just hate their missions and willingness to carry it out.

That's a good solid name for any pet.

I tend to name after personality quirks, but that occasionally leads to a people name.

regardless of Trump being anything, the fact that he was illegally spied on, and harassed by a witch hunt for a large portion of his first term is a problem. Having none of your acknowledge that makes it look like you approve. So if this is the new way of doing business, you should be really quiet should it happen on the other side of the aisle. (laughed while I typed that)

Biggest political scandal in history, and ya'll are harping on cofeve and ice cream. History will laugh like hell at you.

Ah dictionary argument. Love it.

There is as much liberalism to the DNC as there conservatism to the GOP. Which is to say far and few in between. Both groups are by definition left of center. The DNC is rabidly Progressive which is an authoritarian socialism. The GOP is littered with Neo-Conservatives which are Progressive globalists.

If you read further where I call out the Republicans you will see I posted a social solution using conservative principals, a time honored tradition known as apprenticeship.
