Yup, all the fault of the guns. ;-7

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I started shooting when I was 9.


As for hunting squirrels (pellet gun) it's been a life time hobby for me. When I was about 12 it was a source of income.


What were you doing at 5?

I guess all that I found disturbing was the image of a beatific little girl killing animals and skinning them. I swear I wasn't trying to start a discussion.

As for your question, fireball, I found it mostly by stumpling.

Okay, though - even you will find this disurbing

At five I was playing with toy guns and golf clubs and pretending to be a doctor. You see I wanted to be like dad. That's probably what this young girl feels. Dad goes hunting so of course she wants to as well. Maybe 5 is young but I wish I did it at that age.

And there is nothing disturbing about that birth announcement link other than the fact that that girl is over 9 pounds. Poor mom. I have nothing against birth and what I really want to say could be considered a political opinion so I'll reframe.

There is something about this that bothers me, but I cannot put my finger on it at the moment.

What am I missing? It's a picture of a baby. Maybe needs a slight shave of the upper lip, but is there something else? :-?

The name is disgusting. Those parents need to be shot for that.

That's fine but can't she wait?? A lot of us wanted to be like our father at that age but there has to be more replicable behavior. What if daddy is a pimp?? A drug dealer?? A beer drinker?? Can she do those things as well?? You get the point. I don't care what she did. I care when she did it.

So you have no problem with the name of the child?? :-o

Besides the name of the child - which of course is disturbing - is the fact that AA goes to some blog or other site where these type of radical extremes are used as examples of people opposite those in the Liberal mindset - same can be said for radical right wing sites as well.
Im not sure what I find more disturbing - that people visit and contribute to these sites regularly, that they spend their time digging stuff like this up, or that so many feeble minded, emotionally and mentally disturbed people are given a haven by them instead of finding the proper help they need.
Seeing radical extremes dont get me whipped into a frenzy because I understand they are radical extremes - more than anything it just makes me sad that other people use them as pawns to promote their own agenda.

Actually, I got both of these from the same non-political website. Sometimes the cafe doesn't work at work, so I need to surf around during my planning period. I don't know if I can post a link because a ton of the stuff on the site is not pg-13, but if you're really interested, Corny, just drop me a pm.

I'm not sure if that was directed at some of my comments, but I will assume it was partially. While I agree, you also have to keep those minorities from having a disproptionately large voice in the decision making process.

I'm not sure if that's coherent, or relavant to the conversation, I'm going on my 26th hour with no sleep, so I've got a bit of an excuse. X-I
