Re: The MAGA Party

The Tea Party was not a political party. It was simply a Republican activist movement. The Tea Party was NOT a "Republican activist movement" but a CONSERVATIVE activist movement that the Republicans Party shit all over after they used it to get elected. The Tea Party folks blew several winnable el...

Re: Banning Assault Riffles and Background Checks - Now is the time!

But what? Are you in any of the named places? Besides... my 1 in 139 really isn't very good odds. Are you sure that is city of Wayne as opposed to Wayne County? Even with that brick through my window I feel safe here. I didn't buy a gun. I bought a window. Those indeed are the numbers for the City ...

Re: Mega Millions ticket sold in Metro Detroit

It wasn’t me... so maybe we can get this guy drunk and then trick him into signing over a share to everybody on the board regularly (that’s maybe 30 of us? Then we can rub him out. That’ll net each of us about $25 Mil. I think the distribution should be heavily weighted based on seniority. :razz I ...

Re: Banning Assault Riffles and Background Checks - Now is the time!

This is all well and good, but... So it’s based on a fear that has little chance of actually coming true. Similar to dying from COVID. In fact the percentage odds are probably the same. Both events are extremely unlikely. The chance at becoming a victim of a violent crime if you live in, say, Wayne...

Re: Banning Assault Riffles and Background Checks - Now is the time!

From the link... Again these numbers are since 1960 and I am using the per 100,000 people stats as the totals increase with population as one would imagine but the per 100,000 smooths that out nicely, 2019 is the most recent year available... 2020 will be due out later this year. Total Crime Low: 18...

Re: Banning Assault Riffles and Background Checks - Now is the time!

Crime is way down from where it was in the 1970’s and 1980’s (it peaked in 1991) and people feel less safe and more like they need a gun than ever despite crime sitting at early 1960’s levels. Crime in general is down, but homicide rates are WAY up. Numerous major U.S. cities begin 2021 with elevat...

Re: Multiple reports: Lions to seek to trade Stafford in the offseason

Man, the Stafford worship is strong. Brady and Rodgers are proven winners. Stafford hasn't even won a playoff game. Personally I don't worship Stafford at all. I just feel he gets too much blame from "haters". I've said before NFL QB's don't have the ability to control a game like an MLB pitcher ca...

Re: The MAGA Party

After attracting the attention of extremists that wanted independence, that's where they ended up. Did Ron Paul really want his own playground? When they reached detente with the Republican Party, it upset a lot of the original Tea Party supporters. Those that bailed became MAGA. MAGA started when ...

Re: Banning Assault Riffles and Background Checks - Now is the time!

Take a look at cars, over the years they have gotten increasingly safer and safer yet they go fast as hell. It seems to me the gun lobby could very easily revolutionize the economy by coming out with safety features. I'm surprised the manufacturers haven't seen the opportunity in upgrading Arsenal'...

Re: The MAGA Party

The Tea Party felt a lot more legit than whatever this farcical MAGA / Patriot party thing is. As the Biden administration gets some successes under their belt, the threat of a 3rd party will fade just like all the others before it. There are enough smart people left that will regroup the right to ...

I can’t see a logical reason to have either. Are you going to pop 30 bullets into an animal to kill it? The logical reason to have either is because until you or any government entity can absolutely, 100% guarantee me that a bad guy with evil intentions will not have one, I should have the choice t...

Re: Joe Biden Has Only Been in Office for 3 days and Already Burning Down the House!

LEGAL immigration is a net positive for the country as it provides badly needed labor resources necessary to help fuel economic growth. Comprehensive immigration reform is desperately needed. Those who have contributed to our country, have kept their noses clean, and were brought over as youths nee...

Re: Joe Biden Has Only Been in Office for 3 days and Already Burning Down the House!

We are the great melting pot, restricting immigrants is ignoring our heritage. Our "heritage" with the welcoming of immigrants into this country with few or no restrictions didn't include ANY of the social programs that are in existence today. Shall we revisit that part of our heritage too? Sure. W...
