A 60% rise in one year. Swastikas spray painted on buildings in my city. I propose an immediate suspension of Godwin's law in DR so we can stop pretending we haven't seen this before.

The Georgia Legislature threatened to remove a tax break on jet fuel for Delta which would cost Delta 20+ million/year if they do not restore discounted rates for NRA members. How is it remotely legal to link a tax break to favored treatment of a political group by a private corporation?

"It all hit when the market was ready to go down anyway. It just accelerated it," Saut said.
We are always told that we need the right to bear arms to defend ourselves. Who is attacking that one would need an AR-15 with a scope IN THEIR CAR? Isn't the purpose of a scope to aid aiming at long range? Who is attacking your car from far enough away that you need a scope?
