We here in Florida are also FREE CITIZENS, we have a lot of gun shows and military swap meets. We can do our part if and when the time comes.

Michael, We here in Arizona are FREE CITIZENS and many of us " go about " armed at all times. Concealed carry or open carry may be used, without any permit ! When you see the crowds at the gun shows, buying up AMMO as fast as they can, you can guess the general mood. From what I have read about our Civil War ( or the War of Northern Aggression ) I think that our mood was shared by Virginians in 1860 ! What has happened to Arizona MAY happen to YOUR STATE. By the way, we ESCAPED from the Peoples Republic of California about 4 years ago.

I stand corrected. Caught me in a denial moment, great that I am losing them, but it gets my temper up. What's happening with our immigration is deliberate, allowing people from everywhere to come here, keep them in limbo status, use our services and not pay taxes.

What bothers me more, and makes me recommend that everyone start getting closer to their food supply is this question, "Why did Obama tackle health care immediately after his election when Financial Reg was hot in everyone's mind"?

Big Phama bought the government long ago, the facts are overwhelming. If the government policy is euthanasia, then toxic assets and jobs is solved. Hate to think this way, but that's what Stalin, Hitler and other did.

Nurses in senior living facilities have noted that flu vaccines are given to residents each year, and then a new crop comes in. 70% of antibiotics in the US are used for livestock feed to help them grow faster, their shit fertilizes our produce, other countries are banning our food. WE ONLY have weapons, food and entertainment to export for big bucks (natural gas is coming but hydraulic fracturing has the potential to poison our drinking water).

The White House has been invaded. Treason is punishable by death.

So, Big Phama has genetically modified our food to compromise our health having us seek health care. Long term health care is a suckers bet, after they got you money, what do you think their incentive is, especially after you have to qualify to collect.

Vote with your dollar, buy clean food, find the dude whose making it.
I live in a border state, a sanctuary city, and the History Channel, youtube videos show there is a war going on, Al Qaeda in the White House.

Now, my adrenaline is pumping, and sweat is not good for guns, Stay Cool, keep in contact with your neighbors, it doesn't seem like it's going to get better for awhile. Take Care.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
