  • TexasCowboy +Two Memorial Shoot XII Planning Thread

    My Brain | 04-11-17 | TheMom
    For the first time in 12 years I am breaking two traditions for the TCMS. Each year the shoot is held at different locations; although some ranges were visited two or more times, it has never happened in consecutive years. But because my life has been a bit wonky lately I just don’t have the energy for the research and recon. The other broken tradition is the name change. This year we will also honor my co-cat herder, NYTexan, and my beloved husband, Eaker; both of these fine men passed away within days of each other this past March. Therefore,...
  • Getting dragged down into the unconstitutional socialized healthcare quagmire is insanity!

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    The sooner the president realizes that Ryan is an establishment swamp dwelling snake...that's going to suck him down into the swampy quicksand and destroy his chances of enacting HIS agenda the better off he and we will be. Ryan represents the enemy within! Trump won the election already! Now it's his duty is to change gears, uphold the constitution, drain the swamp and MAGA. Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    the Hill ^ | March 29, 2017 | BY MARK MECKLER
    When Mitt Romney selected Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, people cheered. He was young, attractive, idealistic, and — doggone it! — he did P90x. Images of him lifting weights bounced across the internet. Surely this is what the GOP needed, they said. New blood. Youth. Strength. The fact that his losing bid against Barack Obama and Joe Biden was the high mark of his career says a great deal about his legacy. His lack of true leadership has grown more and more evident. During the last week, Speaker Ryan's stature managed to shrink in regard to Congress, and...
  • President Ronald Reagan Radio Address to the Nation on Prayer in Schools

    03/28/2017 11:22:29 AM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 13 replies
    http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=39565 ^ | February 25, 1984 | President Ronald Reagan
    My fellow Americans: From the early days of the colonies, prayer in school was practiced and revered as an important tradition. Indeed, for nearly 200 years of our nation's history, it was considered a natural expression of our religious freedom. But in 1962 the Supreme Court handed down a controversial decision prohibiting prayer in public schools. Sometimes I can't help but feel the first amendment is being turned on its head. Because ask yourselves: Can it really be true that the first amendment can permit Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen to march on public property, advocate the extermination of people...
  • Repeal Obamacare and replace with freedom. Change House and Senate rules to do so if necessary!

    03/27/2017 12:52:30 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 147 replies
    "Prior to this year, the House voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times ---when it was clear that President Obama would veto the bill. The problem we are facing is that some of the people who voted for repeal 50 times will not vote for repeal when it counts, when it is "our moment in time," with Republicans in control of Congress and the presidency." --Rep Dave Brat "This has been my complaint since before Obamacare became law. Nothing I’ve seen addresses the problem of increased costs of medical care. All these bills just shift the rising costs from...

    Lemons: Gun-Totin' Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol: Is Bloodshed on the Horizon? By Stephen Lemons Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 7:15 a.m. Phoenix New Times =================================== Hey, lefties with guns, that's cool. At least, that was my first impression upon seeing about 40 or so assorted anarchists, Brown Berets, and members of a group calling itself the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club across the street from the state Capitol, openly armed to the proverbial teeth. I was late to the pro-Trump "Make America Great Again" march, which began at Cesar Chavez Plaza — after some confusion about the demonstration's...

    A little scuffle, then a peaceful march for Trump supporters at Shore By MaryAnn Spoto March 26, 2017 SEASIDE HEIGHTS -- A pro-Trump rally, which drew more than 2,000 in Seaside Heights, briefly took an ugly turn on Saturday -- one day after Republicans in Congress failed to pass their long-promised healthcare reform bill. ...the crowd cheered on a series of speakers declaring their hatred of "fake news" and their wistfulness for an America that they said had once promised liberty and prosperity for all of its citizens. The four-hour event, which was largely peaceful, took on a sour note...

    We voted you in, gave you the majority in the House, the majority in Senate, delivered the presidency and soon the judiciary. You have been given a mandate to repeal ObamaCare in every election cycle since 2010. Do your job! Do not betray us! No more excuses! Screw the democrats and their unconstitutional socialist entitlement schemes! We did not vote you in to deliver ObamaCare-lite! Repeal every word of this unconstitutional boondoggle!! No more government entitlements!! The constitution clearly reserves health care to the states and the people. Feds stay OUT!! Do the job you were elected to do! Repeal...

He was Trump's man in AZ and was in for Trump early. He could (should) challenge Flake next year for the Senate seat. Lots of cops with heavy weaponry, Impressive. MAGA!!

    Main Street Patriots ^ | February 1st, 2017 | Patriot
    We strongly support President Trump in his effort to put America First and we are holding small rallies to show support for President Trump’s “Contract with the American Voter”. Other issues are not being addressed at these rallies. Blue collar voters helped propel President Trump to victory and these rallies will help provide those forgotten voices a mechanism so they can be heard. There was a spontaneous uprising of grassroots activists that voted for President Trump to find a way to let people know that we support his agenda. Unlike those protesting against President Trump’s vision, we are a diverse...

    March for Trump ^ | Feb. 16, 2017 | Peter Boykin
    over." On January 20th, 2017, President Trump outlined a clear vision for the nation: America first. When was the last time you heard anyone in Washington, D.C., say that, let alone a President? It's inspiring, and after countless years of lies, wars, scandals, soaring debt, and declining esteem, it couldn't come at a better time. That's not to say that it will be easy, unfortunately. In fact, it's going to be difficult and time-consuming to recorrect such a fundamentally altered course. A seditious fringe has resolved to sabotage this restored purpose. An insidious propaganda apparatus intends on further shredding the...

    It’s been the season of big marches for progressive and anti-Trump causes. Now it is time for the pro-lifers to have their say. A coalition of five major pro-life organizations has organized 217 rallies in 45 states Saturday, each calling on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood. All the events will be staged outside the organization’s local facilities. “Americans want to end taxpayer funding of abortion — that includes stopping taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, and ensuring any Obamacare replacement is pro-life, and does not allow tax dollars or tax credits to pay for health care...
