    Hamill is old news, but your link missed the absolute best rebuttal to him to date:

    @HamillHimself In other news, Emperor Sidious declares all citizens not in the Imperial Navy shall have their blasters confiscated. #2A

    As if the Disney H1b visa scandal wasn’t enough to avoid the new Star Wars.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      What scandal? Hiring foreigners illegally and making their indigenous forebears to train their (low wage, low skill) replacements is not wrong. It’s the new normal. Happens in tech all day long.

        I have a good friend who’s in medical software programming. He is from the Ukraine. I got to meet him because somehow, due to our governments taxes and regulations, it’s cheaper for this company to fly him in, provide him a rental car, apartment, cell phone, Internet, AND a job that pays well for 9 months then it is to hire a full time American to do that same job… Figure that one out

          that must be a similar equation to how it’s more lucrative to ship gym weights from china.
          do they get a ballast reduction fee or what?

          “that must be a similar equation to how it’s more lucrative to ship gym weights from china.
          do they get a ballast reduction fee or what?”

          Sort of. The Chinese government subsidizes postage for their companies, because they are majority owner of all companies that do business in China. Get ready for cheap sh*t from Cuba thanks to you know whO

          “do they get a ballast reduction fee or what?”

          Sort of. The Chinese government subsidizes postage for their companies,…”

          So that’s how they do it!

          Over the past few years, I’ve bought from a number of China-Taiwan-Hong Kong companies (primarily on eBay) some various tech items.

          The prices were excellent, but the kicker was that shipping was free (to me).

          I couldn’t understand how, for example, for a total price of a few dollars, I was getting that stuff delivered and why that wasn’t bankrupting them.

          China subsidizing the postage explains it.

          Hell, I’m more inclined now to order more stuff…

    Doesn’t champagne get sticky when it dries?

    1. avatar Layne says:

      Yes. The only thing more disgusting than getting it in your mouth is getting it on a surface.

  5. avatar Southern Cross says:

    And nothing about the “civilized” massacre in Brussels by the poor and misunderstood jihadis with explosives wrapped in nails. Otherwise they would have degenerated to the level of Americans (sarcasm = off).

    Or the shooting of a father sitting in a car after a criminal expressed his disapproval of a comment by two associates by shooting AT the associates, missing completely, and hitting the other person (Sydney). Clear breach of several of the 4 rules. Shitstorm against licensed gun owners pending. The Greens and their journalist lackeys are still high from the previous weekend.

Its a bad place, gravel roads tear up yur cars, ittty bittty towns with nuthn to do. Its not good. The sign says “Welcome to Kansas” but its truely a fly over state. Now Im going to drink some moonshine I bought from the neighbor, watch the moon rise, listen to the wind blow through the cottonwoods, coyotes yip. An wish I could live in L.A.

    And I got arrested for carrying a gun in chicago, registered in my name, but without a ccw. My parole officer said “why do you think you need a gun” a told him “don’t you watch the news?” He got so mad…an argument ensued, in ended up having to get t a new PO. Now I have this jolly fat guy who wears a Trijicon sweatshirt, and we talk about guns every time he visits 🙂

    1. avatar THC says:

      Cool, parole officer? So you did time? Hey ryan, po told me I gotta get a job, n that aint easy, r go back to pen… changed address, new phone number, gave po the phone number as work phone. He calls up, I threw a shoe n the dryer, n banged on the wall, told him I was on construction sight. Lol. It worked. Glad you are doing well, ive had some sht po”s and some good ones, the good ones help a bunch. Peace out. Man

        Yeah 7 months in Cook County jail. Hell’s backyard. But I did gain 40 lbs of mostly muscle in there, and learned alot reading, and learned more than anything to appreciate freedom.

          THC, dude.

          How high were you when you posted this?

    2. avatar Nate H. says:

      PO implies felony. How are you not back in jail? Serious question.

      1. avatar Ryan says:

        Because I haven’t violated my palrole. That basically states no weapons for 6 mos and don’t get arrested. No guns for 7 years 🙁

        Buy you know, there is always a way around things, certain jobs, that sort of thing.

        1. avatar Mr. 308 says:

          That doesn’t really make sense, you say you are on parole and not allowed to have guns for 7 years, yet you were arrested in Chicago with a gun – and without a valid permit for Chicago…

          That would be a parole violation and violation of Chicago gun laws.

          Are you posting from jail?

        2. avatar Ryan says:

          (I was not aressted for carrying a gun while on parole. I am on parole BECAUSE I got arrested for carrying a gun)…ugh

    Those nutty broads at MDA are still around?

    I thought they faded off into obscurity… Well, into greater obscurity, as it were.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      They’re why we need guns. Gotta protect ourselves from the mass murder wannabe’s.

      1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

        They’re not going to do anything. They wish gov’t agents would do it – key word, WISH.

        Bloomberg’s lady bargade for pre-owned ho… I mean, moms, doesn’t frighten me.

        Until they start strapping bombs to their chest and hollering,” Allahu-gunsense Akbar”, I ain’t worried about those paid for harpies.

      Hell, no.

      When the political time is right they will be back to their old tricks.

    “It’s timely here in Austin where a gun rights activist was recently shot by her toddler.”

    Since when did Austin, TX become a suburb of Palatka, Florida?

    Digital Exhaust indeed.

    “3 Firearm Truths Everyone Should Know – The truth about assault weapons, the ‘gun show loophole’ and the lie that more guns don’t equal more crime.”

    Oops. That last statement is a double negative and implies that more guns do equal more crime.

  12. avatar Lucas D. says:

    Instead of banning blasters, we should just tax Tibanna gas so that it costs 3000 Imperial Credits per shot.

    At least James Earl Jones is pro gun.
