David Codrea: "No Upsets Expected in NRA Board Election despite Controversy."

"What I can tell you is who I will NOT vote for, and this list may expand the more I learn about the nominees. I won’t be voting for Sandra Froman due to her support of Grover Norquist. The same goes for why I won’t vote for Joe M. Allbaugh. Ditto for Bob Barr, who merits the additional disqualifier of having supported the Lautenberg and Kohl gun bans and a so-called “terror bill” with anti-gun provisions."

David's getting the idea and he's almost there.

The NRA just isn't worth supporting at all because it really is a gun CONTROL organization. Honestly, legislation passed would be EASIER to target judicially without the NRA "help" crafting it.

The way to straighten the NRA up, the way to revive the cause within it that it was FORMED for, is to turn away from it to PROVE that NO means NO!

The Moment A Russian Leader Realized Communism Sucks Monkeyballs

Back in 1989, card-carrying Communist and Politburo member in the Soviet Union Boris Yeltsin visited Johnson Space Center, and then took a tour of a grocery store in Clear Lake, Texas. According to a Houston Chronicle reporter, Yelstin was far more affected by the grocery store visit than he was the space center.

He apparently was stunned by the aisles and aisles of supermarket products, and told the other Russians in his entourage that if Russians saw what American grocery stores looked like, when in their homeland they had to wait in line for most everything, “there would be a revolution.”

He was dazzled by the fact that grocery stores were everywhere, and that they even offered free samples. A year or so later, a biographer wrote that on the plane ride from Texas to Florida, Yelstin couldn’t get the vision of the endless food supply out of his mind, and lamented how different things were for his own countrymen. According to wikipedia, Leon Aron, quoting a Yeltsin associate, wrote in his biography, “Yeltsin, A Revolutionary Life” (St. Martin’s Press, 2000): “For a long time, on the plane to Miami, he sat motionless, his head in his hands. ‘What have they done to our poor people?’ he said after a long silence.” He added, “On his return to Moscow, Yeltsin would confess the pain he had felt after the Houston excursion: the ‘pain for all of us, for our country so rich, so talented and so exhausted by incessant experiments.’”

He wrote that Mr. Yeltsin added, “I think we have committed a crime against our people by making their standard of living so incomparably lower than that of the Americans.”

And there are still idiots in our own country who are happily, proudly, unabashedly card-carrying members of the Communist Party of the USA. Because that exists. Because we’re surrounded by morons. And whenever one of those annoying progressive lunatics tries to tell you that Bernie Sanders wants a different kind of socialism, or that socialism and communism are completely different, just point them to the CPUSA’s own description:

A better and peaceful world is possible — a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.

If you read their website action items, you’ll notice it all mirrors the Democrat platform quite well. It’d be hilarious if it weren’t so freaking scary.

Living in Gov.[D]im wit Dannel Malloy's collectivist fiefdom of Ct. I have been struggling with my self. Do I walk away from the NRA after 40 yrs. Or do I keep supporting an outfit like the NRA . That seems to be weak in the knees! I joined GOA after Malloy's black rifle/ standard capacity ban. CCDL's case is going to be heard by SCOTUS. I don't believe we can win without Scalia and a 4 to 4 Activist court. I know many gunners in Ct. Who walked away from the NRA in abject disgust! Frankly we feel like NRA is waste of $'s. And we are a publicity stunt being used to garner $'s from members . From other states. In regards to that post card the NRA has .Of those sheep standing inline registering those dreaded black rifles @ the CSP building. I value you're input Mike ! Behind enemy lines, Ct.
