The NRA Wants Your Guns

Did you ever notice that Conservatives are great, stinking hypocrites? You did? Good! It's actually very easy to pick up...

1. The biggest warmongers are sometimes deeply disturbed chicken hawks...
2. The biggest homophobes are sometimes deeply repressed homosexuals...
3. Family Values advocates get busted as cheaters and sex offenders...
4. Abstinence only advocates get pregnant--though not married...
5. "I'm not racist, I just don't think..(fill in racist POV of the moment)..."
6. "Liberals are weak on defense, and bad for the economy"

Right? Those that scream loudest about the actions of others, often have the most to hide.

Which brings me to the NRA. The NRA, outwardly, wants to protect your 2nd amendment rights, and screams that background checks and stricter gun controls are cover for the government to create a list of gun owners. Eventually, they'll "come for your guns" and they MUST BE STOPPED.

Well here's a fact. There's already an organization that keeps a detailed, national list of gun owners and gun enthusiasts.

It's the NRA. NRA members carry cards. Are you a member?

I encourage everyone to spread the word - I have it from a highly placed military official that the NRA is a covert government operation funded by the CIA and the NSA, and its primary objective is to document the highest profile gun owners and enthusiasts. When the time is right, the NRA will come to the people on their targeted membership lists and offer to "keep your guns safe from Washington because they MUST BE STOPPED." If you don't hand over the weapons willingly, the NRA will reluctantly seize them because Freedom, and use them to arm the new, NRA funded national well regulated militia, because THEY (the Govt) MUST BE STOPPED.

Shh! (spread the word!!!)

The Consumers and the Consumed

Truly, the only reason we need to earn money is because we "need" to spend money.

Once we were craftsmen and laborers, thinkers and inventors. Now we are consumers, and we have become separated from the value of the things we consume because they are made in another country, in a poorly lit warehouse, by people we will never meet. In exchange for those trinkets, we trade "capital" - a thing of imaginary, not intrinsic, value. We are told that this is a convenience, but the truth is we are currency slaves, and the only convenience is to the "capitalists" - men who take a percentage of every trade and call it "profits."

We work so that capitalists may profit. When we don't work, those who would profit call us lazy and useless, and thus we are separated from the value of our very lives.

Now we are consumers. One day we will be the consumed.

Bernie Sander wants us to change our futures through a social/economic/political revolution. If we pass on that opportunity, I can see only two outcomes-more of the same with the oligarchs at the top of the food chain, or an actual revolution of tears and of blood.

Think hard about your choices, think hard about your vote.
