    Really? You think we are all mindless brainless and completely powerless against the ads thrown our way, and therefore broke? There are no words to describe the repulsive feelings I have right now. If this had been written by a teen or even by someone in their 20’s, I could dismiss it. But, from a grown man who can’t resist the ads thrown in front of him? WUCK—short for wow and yuck

    I have no debt. My old man lived through the Great Depression and taught me “Do not buy anything you cannot afford.” I have lived frugally my whole life. In 33 years I have owned 3 cars, all Hondas. My wife and I have given up for yesterday and today in order to retire tomorrow. Our financial responsibility has been punished by the federal government by taxes on dividends and capital gains, while others exploit the redistribution of the wealth: having kids, houses, cars, and other things they can’t afford, and then crying poverty; as if need and irresponsibility were a valid claim to my assets. But go figure…the government wants to turn us all into serfs.

    How could your cable bill be that high for what only sounds like extended basic cable? You didn’t list HBO or Showtime. My bill for this coverage is around $60. You must have had the cable company wire your house and they were charging you a fee for every tv in your home. Not us…we don’t allow the cable company to come inside our home…same for the phone company.

      Perfect example of effective marketing is the gun industry. Buy a gun today because the “tyranny” is starting tomorrow! Then say you have the God Given right to buy any gun any amount of ammo, because it is God Given marketing the way the God Given Gun Industry will have you believe! God Given is very powerful campaign tools for your market driven plan! Pure Genius those gun gods.

      • Hal801

        You are so full of crap it is unbelievable. Politicians attacking the US Constitution are propelling sales. Gun manufactures have no need to advertise, many are refusing new orders until they can deliver the products that are currently back-ordered.

        • SusanBeehler

          Really, politicians are selling guns? Who got your undies in a bind? The politicians or the gun lobby. My guess is the gun lobby points to politicians are going to come and get your guns, and the guns just fly off the shelves because the politicians are so unAmerican and want to succeed from the United States. Is that the crap you believe? Gun manufacturers have their customers do the marketing for them; scream 2nd Ammendment; scream ban; scream confiscation and then their “drones” do the work. Must BUY more guns, must do it now, must do it before the end of the gun world happens. Must buy guns! You are so brainwashed you can’t even see the bubbles blowing out every orifice of your head.

          • Hal801

            Yes, politicians who attack the US Constitution are selling more guns than any advertising campaign could. Once again, you don’t know what you are talking about.

            NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a radio interview in late December, “Confiscation could be an option…mandatory sale to the
            state could be an option.”

            Dianne Feinstein, the senior Senator from California, who is leading the gun control push in the Senate said in a 1995 interview, after getting her assault weapons ban passed, “If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns’ – I would have!”

            The Obama administration’s Attorney General Eric Holder doesn’t suggest banning or confiscating guns. He just thinks we should brainwash the American people into wanting to get rid of guns. Ahh, what a good Marxist.

          • SusanBeehler

            You think promoting public safety makes you buy something, YOU MUST BUY , I am BRAINWASHED I have to have a gun, only a gun can protect me, only the Gun which was God Given and fell from the sky like manna.

            Why do you hate your country, Susan?

          • SusanBeehler

            Why do you say I hate our country, Hal? Because I will not buy into gun owners nonsense, just like I do not believe that the prospective gun legislation is a fanciful marketing ploy by gun rights groups and the industries they serve although gun owners sure do march to the beat of companies willing to get rich off of you.

          • Hal801

            Susan, you appear to you hate your country because you regularly mock the founding documents and the freedoms they espouse. You also mock the notion that freedoms are unalienable rights bestowed upon humankind by our creator. You seem to believe that freedom is a gift of government that can be taken away.

            Again, I ask you Susan, why do you hate your country?

          • SusanBeehler

            That is your perception of me, and my perception of you was what I stated. It has nothing to do with hating anyone or our country. Your perception believes someone has to hate in order to believe as I do. I believe with freedom comes responsibility, gun owners hiding behind our 2nd Amendment and twisting it to fit their selfish desires is also my perception. The 2nd Amendment has been interpreted differently through courts through the years. There is no good reason to allow the gun violence to continue to occur when we have within our power to change and effect policies and laws to help make access more difficult for those who will not be responsible gun owners or will use their guns to commit crimes. This talk of a tyrannical government is a marketing gimmick bought and paid for by the gun lobby. You choose to believe it , and I don’t buy IT! It is a lie, a myth, a gimmick.

I love I can be free to state my opinion without fear of retaliation from my government, I only have to worry about retaliation from citizens who do not want me to state my opinion but than I know I can look to my government to protect me from the retaliation also or if need be I can defend myself with my 2nd ammendment rights. I love our landscape, I love how my grandparents came here to start a better life and they achieved it. I love how I have the freedom to work and conduct business without a lot of government interference. I love how I can worship and practice my faith without government interference.

Our countries 2nd amendment allows us to say no and defend ourselves when they go on their killing sprees.

            Typical liberal idiot doesn’t cannot fathom the fact that the Rights delineated in the Constitution are NATURAL RIGHTS.

What so utterly escapes the grasp of her little mothball brain is that the Founders understood NATURAL RIGHTS were God-given rights… sacrosanct and inalienable.

Wow, what a great market to be in, too bad it is also plays a roll in all the deaths by gun fire. Killing 8 children a day, is a pretty big negative to overcome in marketing but the gun lobby and manufacturers have many believing it because they are feeding into the customer profile, male, paranoid and obsession with the weapon, than they throw in the Patriotism of it all and they got a perfect sales pitch and untouchable marketing plan. Follow the money

          • slackwarerobert

          • The Fighting Czech

            you know the Government recently purchased over a Billion rounds of Hollowpoint ammunition right? you know that hollow point ammunition is illegal to use in combat per the Geneva convention right? you know that DHS just bought almost 3000 light armor tanks to use right here in this country, Right? With no REAL explanation why. I suppose they could be buying all the ammunition to blow up on the Fourth of July, and maybe the light armored tanks, just happen to be the right height for hanging Christmas props on the light poles on main street. Yaaaa thats it….every thing is fine…..

          • SusanBeehler

            What benefit would our government have to kill its people? They can take our homes if we don’t pay our taxes. Did you know our government has drones, airplanes, ships, too? So what is your point? Why does the government buying anything lead you to believe they are going to use it against you? Why do you think you need to be eliminated? It is your thinking which leads you to believe what you believe. Paranoia is a characteristic of mass shooters. Those who have this type of thinking may want to think twice about pushing mental health as a criteria for allowing you to own a gun, paranoid thinking is generally thought of as a mental illness. Armies and military buy armor and guns, isn’t that part of being well regulated?

          • Hal801

            Are you saying that the government is paranoid? Why is the civilian government buying more than 1 billion rounds of ammunition? Why is the civilian government buying 2700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles? What is the government paranoid about?

          • SusanBeehler

            No, I was saying the fighting Czeh is paranoid talking. What is a civilian goverment? A government cannot be paranoid, it is an individual, a personal charateristic. Taking a purchase out of context and not comparing it to what is “normal”? I wouldn’t know if it was business as usual or unusual when you have nothing to compare it to. Is it because it is Homeland Security rather than the Pentagon, what is your issue? People on the streets are buying hollow points with no background check why wouldn’t the government have unfamiliar purchases, you do not even know how many individual citizens are making these type of ammunition purchases.

          • Hal801

            Civilian government is non-military. Why does the civilian government need 2700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles? Is it paranoia or a political payback?

          • slackwarerobert

            Not in this country, just try and buy ammo in NYC, NJ, commifornia. Heck in mass you will go to jail for having a spent 50 cal brass on a chain around your neck. Yes we should be free to buy ammo and the guns to use it, but our rulers don’t like that.
            obamas definition of a civilian government is I have the guns and you don’t. Remember in his first election he said he wanted us BETTER armed than the military, now he wants us to be disarmed.

          • slackwarerobert

            And you think they ran background checks when janet nepolitano ordered her bullets by the millions? No one that that much criminal activity could pass one. No one in NJ bought hollow points, they are banned, yet holder will not be arresting the weather man when he has them there. I would love to order a pallet of armor piercing, just to watch my ups delivery man have to hump 150,000 rounds to my door. I don’t need that many, I just wanted 25,000 rounds. (5K round cashes in 5 locations for safety) Sadly with the panic from washington, even with half the country banning them they still jumped in price and I have to make do with the 12K I already have.

          • slackwarerobert

            But they have to PROVE you didn’t pay your taxes before they can take your home. They kill you and they don’t have to do so, just dig up soem devidians and ask them about it. So what is the government going to use all that ammo on if they can’t use it on foreign governments? I can’t wait till they are dumb enough to take some into NJ where it is a crime just to possess hollow points. It is not the army that is buying the guns and ammo, it is the weather agency NOAA, it is the education agency NEA, it is all these groups that have no business being armed according to his holiness obama. Of course I don’t want government declaring what is mentally unstable, they are the true nuts, 12% increase is drastic cuts. Why are you worried about a paranoid person being armed? Don’t attack them and they will never shoot at you. Unless you plan on trying to take their property, then you have a right to be worried.

          • SusanBeehler

            If you are the mental health definition of “paranoid” than you are the ones the NRA does not want to have guns.

          • slackwarerobert

            I’m not paranoid. I am PREPARED for everything. being paranoid is easy since you only have one thing to worry about, and you don’t need evidence or facts, I have to worry about everything. I thought NRA wants everyone to have guns? See I am worried about them selling my rights up the river as well. Don’t run for office and you are safe from me. I doubt you will be effective in stopping them from the inside, you sound like the ones I will be shooting.

          • The Fighting Czech

            Too bad we didnt have a little paranoia on 12/06/41, or 02/25/93 and who knows what a little bit of paranoia would have done on 09/10/01.
            if your concerned about paranoia, perhaps you should worry more about the paranoia that Homeland Security has…. they are the ones who are spending Billions of dollars on weapons, illegal ammunition, drones, and now tanks. All of which is for use within our borders. Why have they listed returning Veterans from overseas wars as possible terrorist risks here in the US? why is the US government so paranoid of its own citizens? What possible reason can there be for this build up? we have good police forces, under the control of local governments. we have well armed National Guard under the control of a state’s Governor. What possible use is there to a build up of yet another army, solely for use inside the US borders? Never before has threat from within ever required this kind of action…..What do they know, that we dont? What your seeing, is not paranoia, its caution. people who want to be prepared for the worst, But pray everyday that you are completely right.

            http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left.html

          • slackwarerobert

            Yes holder is selling guns to criminals, obama is selling tanks and aircraft to terrorists, carter and clinton sold north korea the nukes they are now testing. obama is arming the taliban and funding iran. But it is the democrats that are yelling gun confiscation. It isn’t the gun lobby saying it. obama feinstein, biden, bloomberg, nuts in colorado, maryland, mousurri, california, new jersy……. The “gun lobby” is mearly reporting on the facts of what the left is saying and doing. But have not heard the NRA say to buy guns, only to HAVE them. They don’t care if you make your own, or buy them, just that you not be helpless.

          • SusanBeehler

            So NRA has no “profit” motive and the government is evil?

          • slackwarerobert

            Well I can’t see how they can make money if you are given a years subscription when you buy a gun. It was tuff not getting the autographed bullet heston was giving away, but I held my ground. Yes the government is evil, they break the law, they murder people, they starve families, they gas children, they bomb taxpayers. They promise help in disaster then ignore the people who’s lives are wrecked while stealing the money and supplies. Why do you care if the NRA makes a profit? Don’t give them your money. You don’t have that choice with the evil government they take your money at gunpoint.

      • JoeMN

        Yet Susan, the way you describe gun marketing is atypical of world history.

        What really happens is government lobbies it’s citizens for both an expanding slice of their wealth and liberty, promising security in return.

        As this government loots and pillages the countryside, it begins to neglect this promised security, and realizes that it’s (now subjects) are becoming rather protective of the little property and liberty they have left.
        Soon enough government comes to the conclusion that it’s slaves will refuse to voluntarily starve to death simply for some ideological notion of a “common good”.
        Then comes gun control.
        So the question remains……when did this tyranny begin ?
        Was it at the point in time of gun confiscation ?
        Or was it inevitable from the point government promised security ?

        • SusanBeehler

          Where is this looting and pillaging being done? It is funny you should bring up slaves because if you would look at American history not “world” history you find the 2nd Amendment was worded to protect slavery and gun confiscation. One of the most important drivers of the 2nd amendment was to protect the existence of the southern state’s slave patrols :most southern state had laws requiring white men to serve on the state militias for a term of service. These militias were used to suppress the hundreds of slave uprisingsoc curring at the time of the writing of the Constitution. The Southern states support were required for ratification of the Constitution and they relied heavily on slaves for their economy. Patrick Henry argued that Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution threatened the existing state militias because the federal gov’t had funding power and he feared a state militia with no guns if the federal gov’t decided to withhold funding for guns. He insisted that the 2nd Amendment be written with the word “state” instead of it’s original draft with the word “country” and James
          Madison made the change. http://www.saf.org/lawreviews/bogus2.htm

            if you would look at American history not “world” history you find the

            So which is it ?

            Is it an individual right ?

            Or a collective right granted to “whites only” ?

            The second amendment does not say the right of “white people” to keep and bear arms.

            But the history of gun control does.

            http://www.firearmsandliberty.com/cramer.racism.html
            BTW
            An Illinois court has ruled that the Second Amendment means what
            it says and has ordered the state legislature to adopt a law by June
            that lets citizens bear arms in self-defense, not just keep them.

          • SusanBeehler

            There is no good reason to allow the gun violence to continue, not based on the 2nd Amendment as an argument, because the interpretation as you and I have shown has changed over our history. If you look to the Illinois court ruling it does say anything goes now, and those using the 2nd Amendment to hide behind and say nothing can be done, are not looking at history, the courts have and do decide what can and cannot be done in the context of the 2nd Amendment

            I Agree

            So when are you going to quit blaming the victims of all this violence by trying to steal their rights, and do something about it ?

            “Anything goes” or Anarchy is what we have in Chicago now.

            Violent gang bangers are operating with complete impunity, and it shows.

            When second amendment rights are finally fully restored to the law abiding subjects of Chicago, a reasonable level of order will eventually be restored.

            Another example is the anarchy in Detroit, while caused by an exodus of the productive thanks to years of liberal control and greedy unions is starting to show some signs of life, thanks to a few law abiding citizens left there

            But this anarchy is what liberals desire, isn’t it Susan ?
            In fact, your argument centers around the notion that these examples of liberal imposed anarchy are rather grounds to impose a tyranny by way of “reinterpretation” of the second amendment on the rest of the country, which we all know would quickly be followed by targeting the rest of those constitutional liberties found to be a hindrance to “security”

          • SusanBeehler

            I thought anarchy is what you and others desired on this blog so you can take care of it with your “control”. “Reinterpretation” is what you are doing.

            Lol…. Lil Ms.SuzyBeezer said:

            I thought…

            Assumes facts not in evidence.

            Lil Ms.SuzyBeezer.. what you “thought” (and I use quotation marks since your thought-process is clearly flawed if not utterly lacking) is anarchy is in actuality the foundation for a Constitutional Republic. What you propose to create through your false flag “it’s for your own good” nanny-state social tinkering is an authoritarian state.

            I guess I can understand your confusion in light of the fact that you seem incapable of thought.

            “Reinterpretation” is the assumption made by you and your leftist ilk, that the second Amendment is something to do with hunting, or that weapons can only be kept in the home, or that guns only belong to some nebulous militia.

            You have my pity Ms. Suzy… you’re just another leftist lemming.

            Susan
            Correct.
            There is no “choice” to be had between anarchy and any other form of government
            This is because anarchy is but a temporary condition.
            I prefer rule by law.
            And incidentally, and so does the (albeit small) majority in the Illinois court of appeals, along with the US Supreme court.
            So even the majority rule of liberal totalitarian loving zombie Democrats, criminal mobsters, and gang bangers which inhabit Chicago cannot tread on the rights of a minority there to keep and bear arms.
            However, being that this is rule by law, there is an avenue from which you can revoke this recognition of inherent rights.
            If you can gather a large and broad enough coalition of liberal totalitarian loving zombie Democrats, criminal mobsters, and gang bangers to amend the constitution, have at it.
            But be forewarned, the country would have been lost long before you could gather a coalition of this size.
            (of course you likely already know this).

          • SusanBeehler

            I do know what you think is being proposed but there is no confiscation being proposed. Universal background checks, size of a magazine or limiting certain weapons is not against the 2nd Ammendment and gun laws can be regulated.

          • Hal801

            There is a desire for and a goal of confiscation. Earlier in this thread, I provided you with the quotes of current politicians who have stated they would if they could. You are either incompetent or dishonest.

          • SusanBeehler

            Yeah if I could live in an ideal world I desire no one would be murdered and their would be no more cancer and everyone would have enough food and resources to live happily ever after. Desire does not make it reality. I do not support confiscation nor is there any legislation for confiscation of guns from law abiding citizens, if you are a felon then laws may require you to surrender your weapons. I am neither incompetent or dishonest. You believe what is in your mind not what is reality. Get a grip

          • slackwarerobert

            Well congratulations, one of your democrat idiots solved the problem for you. Just tell men not to kill people, and they won’t do it. Well she said that about rape, but if you can stop rape by telling people not to do it, it should work for murder as well. And here you have been wasting your time trying to do it by passing laws when all you need to do is tell people not to kill.

          • slackwarerobert

            Guess you didn’t read feinsteins bill. If you can’t give your gun to your children, and they can’t buy a gun. You confiscate the guns through age and death. Takes a little longer, but the end results are the same, no one has a gun.

            Take your pick of any big minority run city. Detroit, atlanta, birmingham, la, dc, etc….Are you on crack? All states were slave states when the 13 colonies were formed into this country. The first slave owner in this country was a black man. The second amendment was written to allow citizens to have the most modern deadly firearms in existence, yet you seem to think that they would never let the people have inferior weapons now. No the only thing the founders would be asking now is why we haven’t already taken up arms against the federal government. This answer I know, because they didn’t leave us any guidance on 5/4 tyranny. Can you only shoot the 5 justices or do you have to shoot all 9? Do you have to tell every dc cop you are going to remove the tyrant at 1600, and then shoot them when they go for their gun, or can you tell first one and then shoot all on sight? Who is president? I asked for the list to a thousand places 4 years ago, and no answer yet. Removing an entrenched tyrant with the support of all 3 branches of government, and the 4th estate is not as easy as shooting a would be dictator they worried about.

            Instead of worrying about perceived racism, you should be asking why blacks are so stupid they VOTE to be oppressed? The alabama constitution is a great example of them voting overwhelmingly for it then say it is racist and denies them the vote. They were the ones who got it passed. obama is the same thing, he has done more to hurt blacks yet they vote for him anyways and blame white people.

        wow, you make Hannitard look intelligent. Do I not have a right to own a gun? who says I can’t? you? the gov’t?

        • SusanBeehler

          Yes you do have the right. NO ONE says you can’t! Gun owners also need to be responsible and know the Constitution allows for regulation. You are reacting to “taking your guns” when I said it is just that kind of mentality which is preventing a discussion about gun violence.

          • JoeMN

            What is preventing a discussion about gun violence is all the busybody leftists out there using regulation to erode the rights of LAW ABIDING gun owners, as if THEY are the ones committing this violence.
            Yet Susan,when I suggest keeping an eye on all the known violent offenders cut loose through the revolving doors of the justice system, you screech about THEIR rights.

          • Hal801

            What part of “shall not be infringed” don’t you understand?

          • slackwarerobert

            And what common sense legislation bans one gun because it has plastic stock but ok if it has a wooden one? You don’t ban knives, yet put one on the front of a gun and it should be banned? How is this reasonable when it is completely arbitrary and stupid. You count suicides in your killer numbers, yet even a single shot gun will work, 30 round mags will not matter, they only use the first bullet to kill themselves. How many people are killed by bullets 11-30, how many by the first 7? Shouldn’t you know if there is a problem before you come up with dumb solutions. You say you want to ban “assault” weapons, and yet not one gun on your list is an assault weapon.

      • slackwarerobert

        What channel do you see the adds on? I have never seen an infomercial selling AR’s or any other gun. Well that collapsible garden hose has a water gun on the end for free if you order one now. But I have never seen any adds on tv for guns except the henrey replicas, and they are 22 plinkers. Nice, but way to much for what you get.

  • mickey_moussaoui

    My advice: Don’t mess with slippery financial advisors that advertise their advice. If you have been wise with your money go find a top 50 or better accounting firm and talk to their fiduciary agents. Hire them to manage your money. DO NOT fall for a brokerage firm. They will sell you what benefits them first. Remember; look for a “FEDUCIARY”. They are bound by law to put you first. A broker is just a salesman like Mr. Almlie.

    In my case I guess one could say you can’t miss what you’ve never had.
    I wouldn’t pay a plumber to run raw sewage INTO my house, so why invite MSNBC ?

    • slackwarerobert

      But you would be surprised at how many don’t put a one way valve on their sewer line to keep the cities refuge out.

    The flaw in your logic is your assertion to use a smart phone app. If you are borrowing money then what the heck are you doing with a smart phone. The smart phone comes after you have your emergency fund.

    Our spending habits have a lot to do with taxes and interest rates. When interest rates are low we get no return on savings. That is why people put more money into their homes and the stock market rather than being safe and put in a savings account. People also know that things will cost more in the future so we are better to buy it now. That has a lot to do with inflation. Taxes in this country encourage spending and discourage labor and savings. To get more savings which we need, interest rates must be raised.
