Re: New video shows woman trying to resist YouTube stunt that killed boyfriend

He *might* have had a chance against a .22, not that any sane person would even risk that, but for crying out loud a .50 AE? Wow. Something like this happened in an episode of the Sopranos. The mobsters were trying to scare some woman into paying up and shot her through a phone book, which in the sh...

Re: Taxing Online Ammo Sales

I thought the idea was that the Idaho business would have to collect sales tax on behalf of the state of Texas when it sold to Texas customers, which is going to be an accounting nightmare for small on-line retailers. (assuming the Idaho business does not have a presence in Texas - it sounds like th...

Re: Are our glory days behind us? Yes, I think they are.

I am 20 years older and think you may be right. I hate to say it but perhaps there may come the day we have to fight to maintain our constitution . Right now the democrats plan is open borders to Hispanics that vote pretty much in block as democrats. Therefore it is only a matter of time. I am not ...

Re: Are our glory days behind us? Yes, I think they are.

I'm essentially the same age as the OP and I agree 100%. The road this nation is headed down is not sustainable and it's not workable for much longer. Even more frightening is that I don't see any good way out of this. We let it get too far out of hand. Every night I pray I'm wrong. But I don't thin...

Re: Banks getting in on the action

This creates a new precedent for gun control in the US, not through politics but buy using money. http://thehill.com/policy/finance/banking-financial-institutions/382521-bank-of-america-will-stop-lending-to-assault I've been with Bank of America for nearly 30 years.

Re: Is Cornyn's time up?

We could do better than Cornyn, but we could also do a whole lot worse especially if we primary him out and a Dem slips in in his place. I think he's probably better than people give him credit for, but I also think he's far too entrenched in the establishment to be a true conservative leader at thi...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

He won’t get my vote. But the Republicans need to get a big turn out everywhere. They don’t diserve it. But we need to turn out none the less. This x 1000 (though I don't count Cruz in the group of undeserving Republicans). With a couple of exceptions that prove the rule, the GOP establishment has ...

Re: Secession?

I'm not convinced a civil war would break out (or could even be justified) if the 2nd were repealed through a duly constitutional amendment process. I would hate that and I would fight it with every ounce of political energy I had, but I would have to respect it as at least being within the bounds o...

Re: Secession?

It made me wonder if other states would do the same thing... If they try to get rid of the 2...

Re: CZ82 with two magazines and ammo for sale

Wow, I'm surprised this hasn't sold. These are great pistols and that's a great price. I have one and would love another - if you happen to be coming to Austin I'll take it off your hands.

Re: Open letter to progressive socialists and other leftists

There is a lot to say about that whole article, but I found this paragraph in particular to be troubling. And when you say something is part of your culture, you're placing it beyond reasoned judgment. Its status as a component of culture infuses it with value that can't be argued against. I don't t...

Re: Open letter to progressive socialists and other leftists

Excellent response, OP. I forced myself to read the linked article because like others, I've always thought it helpful to keep up with what the other side is thinking. I now find myself less and less inclined to do so for reasons you alluded to in your open letter (condescension, arrogance, blatantl...

Re: ‘Good luck with THAT’! Texas Dem Beto O’Rourke just handed Ted Cruz a LANDSLIDE election win

We can't get complacent. Plenty of people aren't particularly happy with Cruz and might stay home in November. I also worry about a Roy Moore style revelation suddenly being "discovered" a week before the election. The left will keep coming and coming because they think "blue Texas" is imminent, and...
