The DUmpster / The NRA has become toxic.

The NRA has become toxic.

These fabulous Parkland students have started something. Any association with the NRA, whether you are a politician or corporation, leaves you tainted. The NRA, and what it does, is no longer going to be acceptable to students, young people and their families. That’s quite a big block of the population. These planned walk outs and protests in the coming months will spread the rage against this organization.

Similar to the rage against Chick-fil-A?  What happened with that? Record sales DUmb ****! The NRA had nothing to do with this shooting. Always looking for a boogie man. It will back fire big time.

Billy Graham was against segregation and made sure his sermons were integrated.

He contributed a lot to Civil Rights.

He believed rabbits and prairie chickens should live together in harmony as brothers. :fuelfire:

I used to be a drunk...

But a growing awareness something was terribly wrong - and the insistence of law enforcement - brought me to a treatment center.
There I attended recovery meetings.
Now, this was back in the day. There was no coddling. You were not-so-delicately informed you were full of shit... That your thinking was irrational, that you were suffering from a psychosis defined by delusion, denial, rationalization, minimization, etc. All in an absurd effort to keep from addressing the underlying issue (fear) causing the problem.
Now, I'm just as smart as anyone else. But I would not/could not see my behavior. I DID NOT SEE IT. It took the help of others years down the road to recovery for me to see my behavior as others saw it.
I bring this up because I see the same delusion, denial, rationalization, minimization, etc. in trumpers. They DO NOT/CANNOT SEE the hypocrisy, fear, and absurd thinking/behavior. They are suffering, as I was, from a fear-based psychosis.
How to change this? It is difficult. I was a Social Worker working with drunks and most would not internalize the fact they were mentally/emotionally disturbed - and many died. The only thing I can do is what I do today - set an example through altruism and service to others.
A warning - This inability to see our own behavior/warped thinking applies to everyone - right and left.
The great benefit of these recovery meetings is that I have others to help me see if I begin to fall back into fear-based behavior; others help me see what I need to do to stay a rational, sane, compassionate human being.

So now you are a sober idiot instead of a drunk one?  Go back to drinking. At least people will think it is the booze talking instead of you just being a complete idiot.

The newer AR-15's turn hogs into BLT's instantly.  There's an app.  You just have to bring the bread, lettuce and tomatoes.

And sadly police organizations have a lot of white supremacists in their ranks now.

Proof?  I'd say you pulled that horse hockey out of your butt, but I highly doubtful you can reach it.

I Worry About David & Others Who Are Vocal. They Become More Vulnerable As ------


their message gets louderand more effective. The attacks right now are verbal but they could escalate. If you look at the latest NRA magazine cover it is hysterical and inciting. And it should be silenced. That cover is code for more aggressive action. They won't openly call for direct violence but they will incite their base like hell.

When you see what happened when the "Moms ----" anti gun leadership had a meeting you have to wonder. Outside were armed and probably loaded protesters. And from what I remember the police did nothing. They should have been dispersed. Had they been minorities they would have been gassed.

And as we can see you cannot always count on the police or deputies either. And sadly police organizations have a lot of white supremacists in their ranks now. And some are gun nutters too who support the NRA. I wonder if some or our police organizations are like Mexican police forces. You do not know who a bad guy is if there is one.

Also Thom Hartmann and the Washington Post were gamed by a very sophisticated troll who recommended that guns be brought to the March rally. It was later shown that the person was a shill. And that message got out. Now Thom was able to counter it right away, but I I remember right the Post had already put out the information.

I do believe some safety measures might be necessary. We know the nuts are out their. If you listen to how they go ballistic any any mention of ANY kind of measures to make us all safer you know they are white hot angry. We are dealing with little nasty children here.

Well, Bob, what are YOU going to do about it?

Nothing.  You are one sorry-assed one footed freak.  Deal with it, before you open your mouth to the wrong person over there in CO and find your nuts have been relocated to somewhere at the back of your throat.

It's great that they eat their own, because they are so paranoid about moles.   :rotf:

Any new blood comes to the DUmp, asks a simple question, BAM!  Banned, deleted, tombstoned. 

They learn their lesson, and hopefully question their continuing existence in the totalitarian D party.   Mission accomplished.

Reading the OP in Jim Nabor voice makes it perfect.
