Awww! Can't we all just get along? 

In N.R.A. Power Struggle, Insurgents Seek to Oust Wayne LaPierre

   :mrpickle:                            :shoot:

 

https://www.nytimes....iver-north.html

 

Mr. North asked Mr. LaPierre to resign on Wednesday, according to documents reviewed by The New York Times. He said he had also created a committee to review allegations of financial improprieties that threaten the N.R.A.’s status as a nonprofit organization.

 

But Mr. LaPierre, in a stinging letter sent on Thursday night to the N.R.A.’s board, accused Mr. North of threatening to leak damaging information about him and other N.R.A. executives unless he stepped down.

Awww, too bad.   (from the same story)

Contributions to the NRA are lagging, The New York Times reports,

and the organization is facing an increasingly well-financed opposition movement

in the wake of several mass shootings.

Thanks for the reminder Tio Vinny....!   I had not sent them a donation for a few months now....   Just sent them $50 bucks for their political/legal fund thanks to you and your great reminder.....!   Oh, and on the check, in the note area, I put, "Regards from Tio Vinny".   

 

And on a funny note...   I think my brother signed me up for the ACLU (He's a never Trumper) and I get all the trash mail from them and many other leftist groups.  And I love it...!   I just send back their donation request envelopes weighted down with tons of paper and metal sheets, they have to pay like triple to get them received as they are "no postage necessary".............    Just pure flats of sheet metal really add up in weight.....!   Keeps the postal service solvent, the ACLU paying a lot for postage, and I get a little giggle when I drop it in the mail slot.   A "Trifecta" as it is know in horse racing.   Thanks again for the reminder.  Chris


There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

Ha, ha! Good one, Chris. I'm sure they will not not wither away, thanks to your generous support.

 

 

 

Oh, and by the way . . . that "Shock-them-with-Outrage" technique - learned from Trump himself, I'm sure,

just doesn't work any more. In fact it's boring.       :deadhorse:                                      :zzz:

Let Trump destroy American values. Let him destroy the planet.      :KOOLAID:
I'm just visiting this place anyway. No one can jerk my chain any more, ha, ha!     :joker:      

Thank God the Dems are finally learning this too.          :saint:       :peaceman:

We, as immortal souls, have lived and will continue to live in many realms, many planets,

many mansions.          :USA:          :wave2:

Hey, Half-Aced! I unblocked you for a moment out of curiosity.

I see you post 3 comments for every one from other members.

Gee, glad you have such abundant spare time.

What, do you live in grandma's garage?

 

Again, like I told Chris:

Have a nice day.

Ohh, Half-Aced posted again.

I wonder what he says?

Should I unblock him again and see? 

 

Nahhh!                         :beverage:                     :gonefishin:

Golly!
That's not nearly enough, Chris!!

I hear they are begging for donations every week!

 

Meanwhile, they just upped the salaries of the top execs there.

They just MIGHT need another yacht or Leer Jet.

Current State of the NRA, According to Its Own Members: ‘They’re F*cked’

 

https://www.thedaily...rs-theyre-fcked

 

"Both Allan and Jim complained about the increasing number of expensive-looking fundraising mailings they receive seemingly each week in the mail requesting more money."

 

"The organization was also fresh off the 2018 midterm elections, losing 33 races, as it has increasingly become an organ of the Republican Party. “The relationship was one that was viewed as mutually beneficial, and is one that now feels inseparable,” Kris Brown, the president of Brady, a nonprofit organization that campaigns for gun control, told me. “It is effectively a dystopia communications firm.” "

Hey, Thanks Joe.

That's really a work of art.            :tunes:

I may  just subscribe to that channel.

I know there is software to change the pitch and speed of speech and music, but this made

normal speech into a compelling song.

 

As for 1:13, I agree. It's all you need.

Yeah, he does politics, viral stuff, celebrity and other random stuff. VERY talented. I used to love his auto tune the news.  I actually talked to a silicon valley friend of mine about an auto tune idea 20 or so years ago, but he said there wasn't enough processing power (at the time) to do it in real time.

One of my all time favorites was when an attempted rape occurred and the perp was run off. the local news interviewed the victims brother.. A classic...  https://youtu.be/hMtZfW2z9dw

The Bernie vs Hillary debate is cute too. Plenty of them are good...

https://youtu.be/GFbQZU1iPSU

AN all time classic favorite of mine is Uncle Jay explains the news...the episode on Congress is hilarious...

Funny how the left and the likes of Tio Vinny so go after the NRA, the real organization out to protect the constitution but has never had a problem with the ACLU or the Southern Poverty Law Center....   Two far left, anti American organizations who pretend to be for justice and the American way, American values, but could not be further from them or the truth.   Just ask the ACLU or the SPLC to help defend you in a gun case or a flying the American flag case.  Not gonna happen...  They do a one off here and there and defend a conservative just to say they did.  It runs 1000 to one with them, leftists cases are the 1000, conservative values, 1 here and there every year or so....   Call them as you see them, like Trump does.  And the truth does hurt, not me, but the lying left and their MSM fake news bullies.   Chris
