I wasn't here at the beginning so I cannot comment on how things used to be. You do have the choice not to read. Just saying.
I tell you that is good advice, but not what he wants to hear. I read nothing, absolutely nothing he posts, it has to be extremely depressing him. My father said the worst insult to a person is to ignore them as if they don't exist, he was right. I ignore two members, and I can't imagine how insane they have gone.

Want to stop his insults, or make them useless? Don't give him a platform to stand on. As much respect I have for moderators, the are slow to put a stop to passive aggressive insults.

WW - it look like you are quoting Bucko, who was responding to my post. I don't believe I've insulted anyone. Perhaps you have my confused with someone else. If you do see offence - let me know and I'll try to rewrite it.

Arggh. I had to go back, and read. Getting old sucks. My response was to the fact that so many members have lost interest. IMO the reason for that is the passive aggressive insults. Which are coming mostly from one member. It shouldn't be hard to figure out which member it is.

Sheriff Joe directed his force to involuntarily stop, search, question, and hold people without RAS.

This is a site dedicated to open carry. The behavior above used to be something we bitterly resisted. Now we get pages and pages of political debate over whether he should be held to account or not. Principals over principles by people who should know better.
Indeed you are spot on.. The same folks here that cry about their gun rights being restricted or violated still hold fast and support a petty tyrant like criminal Joe, hence my criticism of their hypocrisy..

In my humble opinion calling a hypocrite a hypocrite is not inflammatory, amazing how the truth really hurts some folks..

Jim, thank you for your post and your opinion... It is not easy arguing against the masses.

Denouncing tyranny and those that support human rights violators is not insulting. How the truth really hurts. Calling a tyrant a tyrant or a criminal a criminal is not insulting, calling a hypocrite, a hypocrite is not insulting..

Indeed. We have rules against insults and it is soooo unnecessary.
Grape:

Interesting how some folks here that claim to support liberty and the Constitution, yet would defend a person (criminal Joe) that is a known violator of liberty of the rule of law, of human rights and the constitution.

Those same few folks when criticized about their support of a tyrant will stoop to accusing me of insulting them. Their hypocrisy is the only insult herein.

Grape, please be advised, I support the rights of our members to praise and support whoever they please however I shall not allow those that support petty tyrants to escape unchecked and or unchallenged thereof.

We cannot claim to support liberty and the 2nd amendment and the rule of law while also supporting government agents that violate liberty, that violate rule of law, that violate our great document.. " I shall not be a part of such hypocrisy".. Should my constructive criticism be construed as " insulting" from those being criticized, I say " I think it better to do right, even if we suffer in so doing, than to incur the reproach of our conscience and posterity'(REL)..

Mod note: Deleted personal insult - serious breach of rules
My pappy always said "the greatest insult one can give is to ignore". It is very true, often the ignored one will go off the deep saying anything to try to garner the person's attention, the more they do it, the more of an obvious fool they become.

Walking Wolf, Yes, I know, and I just can't help myself. I have no filter on my mouth. I'll try harder.

countryclubjoe,

I have a sincere question for you. We all know how you feel about the former sheriff. In several of your posts you have lumped President Trump in your comments as committing Tyranny/Being a Tyrant.

Would you provide one real world, specific example of where he has been a Tyrant, unrelated to the pardoning the sheriff? Just one specific example.

Thank you, Bucko.

Bucko, fair question.. I suggest you first read Aristotle " Politics".. After completion of said title, please return and I shall answer your query.

Quick caveat, DJT possesses all the characteristics of a tyrant that Aristotle's expounds in his great work.

While DJT does not fit the standard book definition of a tyrant ( a cruel and oppressive ruler) he surely possesses all the characteristics of a
" megalomaniac" which is synonymous with tyrant.

Please read " politics" and then we can debate if DJT is a tyrant.

John Oliver did a great piece on Criminal Joe on youtube.. I am unable to post the link.. Maybe another supporter of liberty will post here for our viewing pleasure.. The video is hilarious.! It shows Criminal Joe for the petty tyrant that he is while adding some humor on the topic and God knows we all need a little laugh these days.

Just the fact that you would reference John Oliver or think that he has anything of quality to say shows the rest of us what you are really about.

A Youtube segment from John Oliver's "show."

Liberals will most likely find what they search for...when it fits their skewed world view.
I can't listen to that liberal drivel, it makes me want throw up. It's like eating boiled eggs and going ocean fishing, the drivel is like the seas. As the roll so does your stomach.

Any one heard from...

Hey all,

We haven't heard from countryclubjoe in a while. Anyone know if he is okay? I never got a response on my invite to celebrate. Just curious.
