Most of the ammo is for Deer / Boar hunting. There's no limit and no season for Boar here in Texas -- there's too many. Hunters can remove about 21% of them a year, and as fast as they reproduce (and with no real natural predators, Coyote's aren't big enough to get very many of them) the State has a huge problem with Feral Hogs.

Which if you've never had, you should. Best pork you'll ever eat. Venison is very good as well.

I'm not much of a Republican these days. When Boehner and McConnell give Obama everything he wants through CR / Omnibus Spending, there's no difference between those two jackasses and Reid and Pelosi.

Now, the GOP will have a dog and pony show in which Jeb Bush will win, and our choices will be (as I said) Hillary Clinton or Less Masculine Hillary Clinton (Jeb) at which point I'll vote third party. Constitution Party being the most likely.

Otherwise, I'll continue to stockpile ammo, food, water, and wait for the world to burn.

The Catholic Church is opposed to the Death Penalty. The Catholic Church is also opposed to any war that is not "Just" -- for an example of a Just War, Pope Francis recently urged that action (military) be taken against ISIS to get them to stop beheading people and setting them on fire. In other words, war is justified when defending the weak.

So in other words, your statement Anti-abortionists are not pro-life. is provably false.

Jeb Bush is the candidate for Republican Primary Voters who want to vote for a less masculine version of Hillary Clinton.

Speaking of Hillary... KFC has a new "Ready For Hillary For Lunch!" promo - you get a box containing two huge thighs, two small breasts, and a left wing. You have to bring your own server though.

As many of you know, I'm an avid reader - books, blogs, even the cesspool that is comments on news stories.

One thing that I've seen a lot of lately is the typical canard that "the Spirit of God left the Catholic Church centuries ago".

If that were true, my dear protestant brethren (and I'm not being sarcastic, you guys are dear to me, I just want you to come home to the Catholic Church), then please explain to me how:

Two C++ programmers will argue, 'What will my compiler do with this code?"

You have a very good point, but that's less about the language and more about the compiler. Arguably the most broken compiler was (and likely still is) Microsoft's Visual C++.

But somehow C# is "fixed". LOL.
