    Don't care if I'm offending someone with my straight white male gender shaming toxic masculinity or whatever other offenses I may be committing, I'll keep holding the door because it is the polite thing to do. Guys, girls, or whatever of the other 67 genders you might identify as, I don't particularly care.

    Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack. It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace. The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu. Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island. And this morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island. Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation. As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger. With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God. I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

    Been thinking of my grandpa today, he was on the USS Helena. He was badly burned and was medically discharged from the navy. After he healed enough he joined the merchant marines and finished out the war with them. Unfortunately he died when I was young and never spoke of his time on the Helena or about the war. I did inherit a sweet eagle N walther PP .22 from him though and shot it today in his honor.

    The market goes up and the market goes down. If you are investing for the long-term don't watch it daily and relax. In the long run don't bet against America - the market as a whole will go up over time. If you are doing short-term trading, well yes it has been a wild ride.

    Not mentioned so I thought I would. Not an often discussed topic in today's day and age. A victory for the enemy? Sure but it showed how quick America learns. 5 months after Pearl Harbor we fought them to a draw at the Battle of the Coral Sea. 6 months after Pearl Harbor we kicked their asses and stopped Japanese expansion. 3 years later we fought them to the shores of Japan. Ethnic slurs are always appropriate when directed against the enemy. We should never be caught unprepared again.

    I'm no psychologist, but my own opinion on why it is that these two groups of people who both swore the same oath, would go to two different extremes when it comes to cherishing our rights, is that one group acknowledged theyd be willing to put their lives on the lines to defend it, while the other group just looks at it as a game. So yes, it does piss me off that we take the same oath.

    Toxic masculinity does not exist. It is a manufactured social engineering tool, a huge stinking heap of faulty rationalizations, cobbled together by libtarded feminists with penis envy (which is a real thing). Holding a door is not abusive, calling a female miss or ma'am is not abusive. Feminists are trying to conflate the vestigial remains of chivalry with abuse. How on God's green earth is standing when a woman comes to, or leaves a table abusive? If ever there was actually such a thing as toxic masculinity, and the feministas wanted a legitimate target, they should go after rap music. But they don't and will not because rap music, as truly misogynistic as it is, belongs to a culture represented by liberal democrats. Hold a door, oppress a woman, sing about gang raping a woman, free speech. That is the logic of the institutions that created the imaginary concept of toxic masculinity. So, all this hooey about toxic masculinity is bullshit. The concept was designed to attack the polite traditions of white men and do away with traditional values altogether.

    Perfect for a station car / bank robbery / demolition derby. Comes with the standard minor oil leaks of an old GM. Nothing materially wrong with it except my elderly parents finally agreed to consolidate and get a minivan instead. PM me if interested, or call through the craigslist ad and have the fun of talking to my dad about WW2 and Korea (but I warned you!). https://newjersey.craigslist.org/cto/d/199-buick-lesabre-custom/6767268665.html

    France seems to be going through step 8 of the Saul Alinsky plan: 1. Healthcare. 2. Poverty 3. Debt 4. Gun Control 5. Welfare 6. Education 7. Religion 8. Class Warfare Obamacare, increasing numbers on food stamps by over 60%, doubling the national debt in 8 years, all you people holding on to "your guns and Bibles", standardized education, and working to divide classes of people were just a few things Obama did. Socialism is not your friend.

    Thought I'd relate a story from some time ago. I was in another country where the women really liked American men. Thought I'd ask the woman I was with what they liked about American men. As I was doing so we were going through a door I had opened for her. Her response? "If I were with a ______man I wouldn't get through that door unless I opened it myself".

    The sympathy for vets getting caught up in this isn't because they are more important, but due to the unfortunate irony that they at one point swore to uphold the constitution and defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic. Only to come home and be stripped of the rights they fought to protect. Most veterans are on our side but youre more than welcome to generalise all of us as a single entity that wants you dead. That is your right to say. I just think you're an asshole.

    IMO the vast majority of women - still *want* to be treated like ladies..... It is always yes Ma'am and yes you hold doors open - you open car doors - you take THEM on dates and you let them sit FACING the room - if they complain - it is a slight on them not you....... Be a man, act like a man, chivalry is NOT dead - unless your a soy boy and then your just kinda fucked.......... Also when the time comes and yes, they allow you too - kiss THEM - hold THEM - caress them.... again unless your a soy boy and well she might as well be hanging out with her girlfriend.........

    Yup, that's Gronk. You have to be pretty brawny to do that like Jesse "The Body" Ventura in Predator. Many moons ago at Knob Creek MG shoot, they had three miniguns mounted to a tripod which flipped over backwards and killed the young girl firing them (from her skull being crushed by one of the miniguns). You can have one with a Class III or 7 FFL going through LEO demo letters, post sample, etc. process. Figure 2,000-6,000 rounds per minute of 7.62x51 (.308) at $0.50 a round. You can do the math. For something more accessible, the Dillon Aero calendar is usually pretty sweet and features the minigun prominently for your garage/workshop.

    Thats gonna hurt... But i actually think that would cause a supreme court case since 5 rounds is not standard at all... no one makes a 5 round magazine for guns that are widely used.

    You can't. But on the other hand you can't drive out of the state at all without risking death in an auto accident. Seriously, we need some sense of proportion here. Unless you plan to fly a flag on the vehicle crying "I'm Transporting 10+ Round Mags Out Of NJ" and/or drive like a maniac the risk of being stopped, let alone discovered, is so close to zero as to be negligible. If that wasn't true there wouldn't be any gang-bangers running around with guns on foot or in cars.

    Here’s the best comment in the article: “We are a society built on the rule of law,” said Renee Hopkins, CEO of Alliance for Gun Responsibility, which led the campaign for I-1639. “If we have leaders that are responsible for ensuring the laws are enforced, picking and choosing which laws they get to enforce, we have a huge problem.” If we were discussing immigration law this libtard wouldn’t be saying the same thing. Moron! How many illegal immigrant sanctuary cities in that state? Let’s here her come down n those people.
