  1. This is exactly what the Governor intended whwn he passed the new gun law. He wanted the people to do the work of demolishing their own people. Help even the population control. The fear of being minority and out numbered at the polls is real.

  2. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Amazing blog!|

  3. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this issue here on your web site.|

  4. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.|
