If an old black guy in a suit says it, and it fits my pre-existing beliefs, it must be so!:
The NRA was Created to Protect Freed Slaves From the KKK & the Democratic Party, and Everyone Else From a Tyrannical Government
Check it out!
They tell you to check it out! But you don’t, cause you know it’s true! Besides, if you google it you get 25 other conservative websites with the same claim and video–you checked it out and everyone says it!
If you check out real NRA founding you learn…it’s not true! Check it out!
Here’s a joke (in more ways than one):
How Things Really Get Done…
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House.
One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota.
All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.
The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.
“Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, and then says, “I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”
The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”
The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”
The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.”
“Done!” replies the government official. And that, my friends, is how the stimulus plan works.
And you know this because…? I didn’t think so.
Here’s a great example of what we smart people call “over-generalizing.” Or “stupid.” Probably made up as well.
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a
[thus 8 years of Geo. W. Bush. Oh wait, is he talking about generous gifts to corporations and the rich? No, they’re not the majority. Maybe he means when the poor realize they should get what the rich get? In that case we’re not there yet.]
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”

It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in
St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory
Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens
of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low
income tenements and living off various forms of government
Actual facts show that “red states” have more people on gov’t assistance than “blue states.” Who are the “takers” now muthaf***a?
