food for thought

a lot of you already know about riders on the ballot box

gov cant get what they want passed, so they tack it onto something the people want, and the people pass both

that reminds me of this link im gona post

this fella starts off with something that is OBVIOUSLY very in need of being done.
so badly in need of it, in fact, other countries are warning their citizens that if they go to america, do not carry cash because the cops will rob you.

but he finishes off with trying to strip us of our rights as civilian gun owners.

just wanted to post this where some one of value might find it of interest.

I offer this one caveat when interacting with the media.
The media subscribes to what lawyers, and prosecutors in particular, have always KNOWN:
"People will believe anything they are LEAD to believe."
Please keep that in mind.

Some things I learned while employed as a page designer/illustrator for a major Columbus, OH newspaper years ago, back when newspapers mattered. News is bought from a wire service, not made. All newspapers buy from the same source. News stories are edited to fit the page. Editors determine how a story reads by what is left in or taken out - it's whatever they want it to be. Advertising sells, the news is secondary.

Most journalists lean left and think their readers are morons. I've seen it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears.

Check sources because they don't.

My 2cs.
