I happily let people know what I have in my house. Let them break into my house at night. My P.T.S.D doesn't let me get much sleep.

Oh goodness, that's the kinda of crap that really gets under my skin!!

i...i just...he...*facepalm*
I took a picture of my son holding my SKS. He thought it would be fun to use it as a Facebook profile picture. 2 days later, no more Facebook account. They shut it down without so much as a warning.
So your friend's account may suddenly vanish without explanation.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

I'm with you on that and I don't take the meds they give me cause then I don't hear a damn thing so I would rather be alert.

Yeah, sometimes I just self medicate with a 12 pack if I really need to get some sleep. But 3 hours have been a good night for the last 6 years.

Over the summer, we had a rash of burglaries in our neighborhood. I was out in the driveway talking with my next door neighbor about them. He nods in the direction of our neighbor who owned a pawn/gun shop and said, "I was just waiting for them to break into Boyd's or your place."

I asked with a bit of a shock, "what's that mean?"

His response, "Well you two have all the guns on the street. I figure they would only have to do that once and it would be all over."

So how was that shooting in your backyard the other day? Did you see the guy that wasn't selling the pistol to the underage kid crying? Damn D-port!

It was probably the bayonet that did it.

I don't know of any pictures of me on the interwebs. I have had discussions with my shutterbug relatives about this in the past; if they want to shoot the Christmas party pictures, then they need to be sure to post only those that show themselves.
