Oh, I think it's too late for "no personal attacks."

Re: HOW MANY MORE TIMES? LAS VEGAS MASSACRE

I own guns, several of them. Hi cap clips military assault style the 9 yards. I will never willingly give them up. What other feel about abortions I feel pretty much the same way about my second amendment rights. Coebul, You are not the gun-owning American I am against. I am no more against you tha...

Re: HOW MANY MORE TIMES? LAS VEGAS MASSACRE

Scrutney, I'm at the same point you are re guns. It's a subculture. Serious stuff. Not to be done cavalierly. Ain't that the truth about this not being the same place we grew up! Changes were so rapid. Your list is my list! Although I think the "calm before the storm" is baloney. It's off off off of...

Re: BOOKS

I hear you. One bad book in a genre can be bad juju for the rest. Any possibility you've read "American Psycho"? I know they made a movie from the book. I've read many Michener books and have enjoyed them. "Hawaii" made me so angry! All those missionaries. "Centennial" was a great read! Sorry to hea...

Re: HOW MANY MORE TIMES? LAS VEGAS MASSACRE

Scrutney, Would you be shocked to know that I, too, would not be opposed to having a gun? The elderly are victims. I think of home invasions and the thought terrifies me. But could I use it on a human being? That's the leap I have to make. It might not be that much of a leap after training, however....

Re: "the calm before the storm"

More deflection? Would he bring attention to nuking North Korea after having mewled about President Obama et al. giving away battle plans? He's the consummate entertainer. Perhaps, with that enigmatic wink and smile, he is deflecting again. Not from a nuclear attack, but from something more insidious.

Re: Gone but not forgotten

I wish I could remember the single-word nic used by someone, I never knew who, that I used to actually look forward to reading. They never started new topics, but they would weigh in on some of the most controversial, with excellent responses. They probably had legal training -- may have been an at...

Re: BOOKS

Way cool, Scrutney. Your selections sound far more interesting than mine! Started "Chesapeake" by James Michener. Remember him? Also have Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" out again. I have all characters listed and identified inside the front cover. I had no trouble remembering the dead Addie. But the re...

After being unmarried for my first 36 years.
And then there were those other 10 years.

But I've been traveling with my mate (through life) for 46 years.

"A fraud on the American public."--The 2nd Amendment

Relative to a discussion in another thread, this is for you, Bieramar . I commented the 2nd had been "perverted." You disagreed. I submit this (written in response to the Pulse massacre in Orlando) for your consideration. For the record, I did not use "perverted" as hyperbole, but in agreement with ...

Hi Scutney, I read your post carefully. I wish to respond. This is not personal, but hitting some points of your discussion, which I found very thoughtful (as usual). Abortion. First, if one is unwilling or unable to accept that women's' health care INCLUDES productive health care, then YOU (not you...

Re: HOW MANY MORE TIMES? LAS VEGAS MASSACRE

May I? I carry a firearm. In my defense (?) I have been shooting since I was about 16-years-old. At 18-years-old, I was a deputy sheriff. We carried six-shot revolvers, most carried .357 magnum; I carried .38 caliber. I later purchased a 9-shot 9mm semi-automatic pistol. Today I carry a 5-shot .38 ...

My perspective: We'll be married 40 years next March, and we're still on our honeymoon.

So, yes!
