I collect Flintlocks, CapLocks, and Trapdoors. Do you think a Universal Background Check is necessary for 2 black powder single shot rifles and 1 single shot cartridge rifle?

re: This is why the system's broken - RetiredG8tr
I agree, either an income tax for everyone or a combination national sales tax plus income tax for everyone. Everyone should have to support the Federal Government. Everyone needs to be invested. A National Sales tax captures the underground economy. When the money is spent, not earned....

Facebook, the company that supported Obama, is getting a $453,000,000.00 refund on taxes not paid. What kind of loop-hole allows this return? They aren't alone, high tech pays much less in taxes than Big Oil. Where is the FAIR in taxes?...

re: Obamacare has clause restricting the govt from collecting gun data - RetiredG8tr
The NRA supports checks on people with mental health issues. My wife had a minor stroke and no history of mental health problems. Why did a social worker need to ask me if I was afraid of my wife?

Teddy, I'm 62 and can tell you I have been debt free since I was 42. Including cars, mortgage, credit cards, etc. If the interest on your debt is less than the interest you can borrow, keep the debt. But, soon interest rates will return to their norms. If you have a fixed interest rate and it...
