Hay vison! Don't you wish you could own guns and have real health care up there in Kanuckistan where your pinko commie government controls every aspect of your life? ;)

According to someone I was talking to earlier this week, everyone is pinko commie, except the US. English Pinko commies, Canada pinko commies, France pinko commies, Italy pinko commies, Norway pinko commies, Isreal really pinko commies, Japan pinko commies. Everytime I tried to discuss other nations health care systems, they were either commies or sociolists. I wasn't even saying we had to do what they were doing, just look to see what the positives were, and the person was having none of it. In fact every sick person who has the money and lives in a different country comes to US. Every country.

I got to the point I was throwing out made up countries.....and amazingly they were either socialist or communist.

so I gave up trying to even talk health care with this person.

Did she offer up any solutions...hell no. Just Obama was the devil and he's ruining the country. :roll:

An American friend was here the other night, a guy who we do business with. He's in Canada about half his working hours.

He says he's given up and will no longer even attempt to discuss it with other Americans. He says he's tried to point out to his American friends that Canadians are really quite happy with their medical system. No one wants to hear it.

He has an excellent health insurance plan with his present employer, but he can't change jobs and expect to get the same plan somewhere else. He admits he would change jobs if he could.

oh I was told they knew someone who lived in Canada for 45 years, and hated the health care system. I was told this person was an American citizen, yet lived in Canada for 45 years, and that during the whole 45 years the socialized health care was absolute crap.

I kept thinking but did not say, why the hell did he stay there for so damn long if he hated it.

HE doesn't feel that guns are penis extenision.. The guys toting the guns around think that


Um, the guys toting the guns around aren't calling them penis extensions. The guys afraid that someone, somewhere, might actually have a gun are calling them penis extensions.[/quote]

Now you are calling them penis extensions as well, unlike the people who carry guns.

So, given the obvious fact that it is the hoplophobes are calling guns "penis extensions" what does that say about your desire to castrate everyone?

I wonder what Freud would say of the comparison the hoplophobes are making. They hate and fear guns and compare them to genitals, AND want to remove from people the very thing they compare to genitals.

Well, I think we were mostly joking (there's nothing "wrong" with any of us :roll: ), but I think there's some truth to it, for some people who own guns.


There we go again. It's not the gun owners making that comparison.

Let's see: C_G is a gun owner. C_G doesn't think that way. Therefore no gun owners think that way.

Right?

Ah, you're a card.

:D

It's not the gun owners making that comparison. It's the hoplophobes making that comparison.

Therefore we need a Freudian analysis of the hoplophobes.

But, you know, you have no clue whatsoever what drives other gun owners, C_G. None. You can only know your own motives, you can't possibly know what EVERY other gun owner might think or feel.

There are so many nutz that are gun nutz, that I suspect they might shock even you with some of their ideas.

You can only speak for yourself, and even then, who knows if you're lying?

I think part of this thread should be split into TOE.

ToE is for more explicit sex talk. Just mentioning genitals isn't ToE worthy.

I was trying to make a point more than it being a serious suggestion.


edit: besides, talk of penis extensions sounds pretty explicit and kinky, in my opinion! I am NOT even going to google that term.

Google it? Great scott. That would be insane.

It's a dumb conversation, I agree.

A dumb subject, too. Guns, I mean. Not healthcare.

So I'm outa here.

A most wise and prudent decision. Once you google something like that they find you and you get emails constantly about such services to give you what nature shortened you on ......

or so others tell me..... ;)

In a nutshell, thats the long and short of it.

And on a more serious note, even though I taught Government for over 30 years, I learned something new today..... "the guys with the guns make the rules".

That guy certainly has no issues with his masculinity does he?

'nutshell'?

A better choice of noun was available, surely.

Except for the fact if you have millions of guns and bullets and your neighbor has say....1.3 billion kids and you own that neighbor boat loads of money....then your neighbor could care less if your pissed off at your President becasue he's black, or if you have a gun, or anything, because unless you raise the money to get yourself out of debt (i.e. taxes) your neighbor owns your ass. And you can shoot all your bullets at him and he will still own your ass.
