No. There's plenty of space to learn - and now there's recourse for abusing the freedom they've been given. The car doesn't shut off, the parents are required to remove driving privileges... if my kids want to drive my car, there are rules. I already told my son (months away from getting his license) that I will never buy him a car - I will by myself a car and let him use it as long as he's obeying the rules. He didn't complain... I don't owe him a car. It's a privilege. If he doesn't want to be monitored, he can pay for his own car and his own insurance... it's just that simple.

The context of my statement was presidential elections. Ideally, the president should matter very little. Unfortunately, after 240 years, the U.S. Constitution is essentially turned on it's head. In times of peace, the majority of governing is supposed to happen locally. If that still happened, we'd have much greater control over our local politics.

The other bad part about that is that by the time the primaries get to my state, the ones I liked have already been eliminated by the party establishment. I can vote in either primary (but not both) because we don't do party registration in my state, but by the time the primaries come around, anyone that would have made a significant difference is already eliminated.

City?

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.
