    game. Tell them they can't get away with it.

    The RkBAers here taught me that lesson well. They play the game constantly in tag teams and then deny it and blame the others. They are a sick slick group. I wouldn't have believed they even existed 5 months ago.

    guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

      The way they go at this issue doesn't make any sense to me.

      I constantly ask them what compelling social good justifies this level of access to weapons and the kinds of weapons that are available and none have been willing to even try to give an answer.

      I've lost a couple of friends over this issue including Kestrel 9000. I told them I'd continue to challenge them on this issue until they could provide a logical answer and they basically told me to fuck off rather than even try.

      Personally I think they have this Red Dawn fantasy that the government is going to come for them some day. Which doesn't make any sense to me. Look at what is arrayed against the Boston Bombing suspects and you can see that no amount of guns or ammo is going to prevent the government from taking you into custody if they want to do it.

      I will not shop on Thanksgiving nor before 10am on the following Friday out of solidarity with retail workers! Please do the same.

        when they start telling me to fuck off. I wish I would have done that from the beginning.
