    Well, just got back from this year's NRA Convention in Louituckey, First one I've ever been to, and won't be the last. I took my wife,  5 year old boy & 2 year old daughter. We all had a blast. I ended up getting more free stuff cause of my cute kids than I could of ever imagined! Damn near every booth we went to that had hats, or cary bags, or something else, we got!  I ended up with 2 free $16 dollar hats from Leupold just cause my kids were there.  Fellas!, If you ever go, take your kids or grandkids!  Anyway, I looked at alot of stuff, & what I was looking at the most was Leicas Range fiding Bino's  & Swaro's new Bino's. Man! this is almost a toss-up, quality of glass that is...Not that it matters, but my eye's are 20/10, & they let me take these units outside, and I have to tell ya, I'm leaning towards the Leicas on the WOW factor. The Leica 8x42 Geovid range finding bino's looked more crisp than Swaros 8.5x42 bino's.  Also, as far as consistant ranging(+1, -1 ) of all the current rangefinders, Leica is the most accurate & consistant of any of them. Anyway the Whackmaster Nuge was there, Oliver North, Jim Zumbo & a few other celebs were there to see.  Nothing short of a great show! I'll be going back next year for sure.Wink

Nice fair write up in the Louisville paper, who has hated guns for the last 150 years.  Why were they miffed that Ollie spoke the truth?
 
  Tommorrow is the Kentucky Primary.  I think that the Convention was in the right place at the right time.
 
The problem is while some people were getting hats... I was down the road at one of this country's most conservative colleges working and counting Obama bumber stickers.  These people had Bush stickers last time.  Those of you who remember Jimmy Carter are having a nasty case of  Deja vu...

 Problem is ... George Bush = huge fuel prices climbing every day ... crumbling economy ... huge job losses ... companies moving out of the U.S.A ... tax breaks making extreme wealthy -wealthier .... tens of thousands losing homes .... millions of illegal aliens using our tax dollars for benefits our own citizens and children can't get and more of the scumbags sneaking in every day with Bush not letting the law enforcement stop them .... wages same as 10 years ago ... skyrocketing prices on everything .... links to big oil with oil companies with 900 % profits every quarter .... a defict that is unbelievable and wants it TRILLIONS of dollars more .... over 4,000 dead american boys .... thousands of them maimed and crippled for life ... for no good reasons at all ... worse than Jimmy Carter ! No this guy is the worst president in the history of the United States !

Don't believe the Obama hype... Even more so about the oil companies... His point man on the ground in Indiana was a lobbist for the oil companies.  He is not take thier money, he is paying them to run his campaign.
 
Tax and Spend is not change!

900% per quarter?????? Let me call my stock broker!  BS%20Flag I own an oil stock and oil index.  It aint so.
 
Everytime I hear crap, yes crap, like that, I ask how much of that stock people own.  I ask why not, they could be getting rich with the oil companies. 
 
 Ask your union rep how much of it your union retirement fund owns... Are the the oil stock doing as well as the money they loaned to build a casino????

I am not pro Bush, I am not anti Bush. I will say that he was the least of the EVILS that we had to choose from. There would have been a wholesale surrender after 9/11 had Gore been in office, and just what would we have gotten with Kerry, had he won in '04?????

                                                         FACTS :
 
DALLAS - The Exxon Mobil profit machine clocked in at $4.7 million per hour in the April-June period as soaring oil prices and higher output boosted the company's performance .
 The company’s $10.4 billion second-quarter profit, announced Thursday, was the second-best quarterly performance ever for a publicly traded company, drawing praise from Wall Street and ire from some politicians. The only bigger quarterly profit was the $10.7 billion posted generated by Exxon Mobil in last year's final three months.
 
 Ahead of the pack. Exxon Mobil's profits are 80 percent higher than those of General Electric, which used to be the largest U.S. company by market capitalization before Exxon left .
 
      And that made this guy happier and wealthier   --- the only BS is from him and people like you sucking the blood out of the middle class everyday at the gas pumps !
                                         Bush and silver  == BS%20Flag

Ticker: XOM Yield is 1.75 % and a capital gain of 13.8%  that is not impressive.  They handle a lot of money but do not keep that much of it. Look at the year chart for this company and you will see a traders wet dream.  It is a very rocky stock.  The P/E is not worth owning the stock for the yield, nor is the risk of capital.  Run it against ticker DBO and DIG.
 
 
To compare that to GE is meaning less, as they are a bunch of underperformers.  Witness my local plant that looses 145 million a year... GE is a loan company, they make thier money off of the large capital projects they build and loose money on. 
 
Frankly, I am not sucking blood out of anybody.  I am smart enought that If I see a way to make money by owning a part of a company, then I do so.  That is the American way.  To own things that make money.  See I am getting fraction of my money back...
 
For ten large you can own your own hunderd shares.  If you own it in a Roth Account then it is tax free gain and yield.  What's going to pay for your old age, your kids tax dollars in a government run pyramid scheme?

So you prefer a SOCIALIST trype of government, or at the very least a FACIST trype of government? Not me big boy, CAPITALISM ALL THE WAY.......The problem I see is a supply and demand one, and as long as the FACIST POLITICAL leadership makes mandates that are affecting PRIVATE AND FREE (no longer free) ENTERPRISE we will continue to pay the price. The rich keep getting richer because they make sound decisions, and poor poorer because they make poor decisions. There are and will always be exceptions, but class envy and the desire for the government to over step it's mandated boundaries will only hasten the already rapidly declining AMERICAN way of life......SWEET DREAMS!!!!!!!!

 BIG BOY .... !!! ...... Yea I may be big .... boy NO ! Class envy ..... hahahahahaaa ......... I sold 2 incorporated companies  ...... still own one here in Maryland . How many did and do you own ? The problem is most idiots think they're rich .... don't even know the meaning of wealth/rich . I make profit every day but I don't mind paying higher taxes ... if you're intelligent enough to own and run a profitable business you should have a descent CPA to get the taxes down . That has nothing at all to do with huge gasoline and deisel fuel costs ... or the millions of illegal scumbags coming across our border every year ! If you ever had employees paying the overinflated fuel costs  ... which I doubt you do or ever will and hear their hardships ... then spout off little man . It does'nt hurt me ... tax deductable ..... a writeoff .... but the regular hard working person is suffering . You should know who you're talking to before making stupid libelistic remarks . Chill out ! 
 
     GE  are under performers ????

Merc, On the borders thing we agree. LIBEL? TRY IT!!!!!! NOTHING I said could or can be used as LIBEL, YOU need to know whom you are dealing with sir. YOU take your own advice and chill. you also can take your shallow mind and equally shallow threats and stick them some place where they will be more tolerated, your anus would suffice nicely as what is coming out will match up quite nicely with the vile you are spilling here......In so far as STUPID, that really is the pot calling the kettle black, you wanna open pandoras box with me, we can get really ugly friend. You want war we can have a WAR!!!!!!

 No I did not infer YOU were stupid !!! Sorry if you got that impression ..... it looked like you were inferring I was socialistc ... communistic ... or facist ! I think we both took it the wrong way .... what in the h*ll are we doing ..... this has gotten way out of hand ..... war ... no .... I love this forum .... swore I'd never get into a stupid argument on here .  Your decision .... but I'm not afraid of a war threat ....   I don't make threats .... your  " BIG BOY " label rubbed me the wrong way . The only big boys are the innocent (2) border patrol agents bush keeps locked up in prison for shooting at a mexican drug dealer and used all the might of the legal system to put them there !

Concur, the border agents are getting it right badly, and for what? Doing their damned job. I will be the first to say that G.W. has done some rather questionable things while in office, that be one of them for sure.
