Gents,

A friend of mine told me that he read somewhere that someone slipped in re-importation of Korean Garands and Carbines into the December Cromnibus bill. Anyone else hear such a rumor?

Kevin Gibson,

Have heard ZILCH but hope that "someone" did that good deed. = I could easily use a couple more Garands.
(In the "last pile" were H&R & International Harvesters, neither of which do I have.)

yours, sw

Well, here's what I've found...

Sec. 8018. None of the funds available to the Department of Defense may be used to demilitarize or dispose of M-1 Carbines, M-1 Garand rifles, M-14 rifles, .22 caliber rifles, .30 caliber rifles, or M-1911 pistols, or to demilitarize or destroy small arms ammunition or ammunition components that are not otherwise prohibited from commercial sale under Federal law, unless the small arms ammunition or ammunition components are certified by the Secretary of the Army or designee as unserviceable, unsuitable, or unsafe for further use.

That's it. The worrying thing is, who defines "unserviceable, unsuitable, or unsafe for further use"? 'Cuz to the Demoscumbags, ANY firearm is both of the last two...

Diamondback,

Given the LYING SWINE that's in the WH (and his coven of kooks, wierdos, bigots, criminals & fools) , I wouldn't put ANYTHING, no matter how dishonest & slimy, past him/them.

Jaywalker,

STICK AROUND & you'll see me (& others here) say worse of our very own LIAR-in-CHIEF, who is LESS competent than Jimmy Carter & FAR more .dishonest than Richard Nixon ever was.

I despise a KNOWING, constant, LIAR as much as I do any thief.

Hmm. Well, rather than asking just what lying you've seen that isn't just from the overheated imagination of Faux News, I'll suggest that most of the most heated opposition to Obama I've seen appears to me to be poorly-disguised racism. Looking at his actual policies, as opposed to mindless drivel from idiots who repeat lies of others, I'd say Obama ranks somewhat near moderate-conservative on banking, trade, and finance.

OTOH, I'd much rather keep this a gun forum than a political one.

Faux news? You prefer MSNBC, I take it.
Without politics, your desire for a gun forum is meaningless, as the current administration cares not a bit for your 2nd Amendment rights... or your 1st.

Lets see, what lying? How about if you like your health plan you can keep it. Or, "I don't have the authority to do anything about immigration on my own."
Just two examples, but there are plenty more.

bearcat6,

Given a couple of days, I could come up with MANY outright, intentional, premeditated LIES told by BHO, who I regard as utterly UNFIT by reason of general dishonesty to be a local school board member, much less any other "position of public trust".

The numbers of INTENTIONAL, MEAN-spirited, SELF-serving LIES told by his "inner circle" for momentary partisan advantage would likely be numbered in the tens of thousands.

If tomorrow, the WH staff discovered that 1 percent of the voting public wanted to engage in cannibalism, they would describe the cannibals as having "a valid alternate lifestyle" & publish a cookbook for preparing people as food.

MSNBC? No, it's just as bad in its way as Fox.

Keep your health plan? I'd say more "mistake" than "lie," and that's a big difference.

Garands and such? Sure, I don't care for that part of the Democratic Party platform. There are major parts of the GOP I don't care for, either. I'll wait and see if the Dems begin to oppose ideas in this congress just because the GOP presents them - that's what I've seen the GOP do for the last six years.

In my opinion, McConnell's stated wish to have Obama fail - and to cause it - is pretty close to treason. What would our position be if it weren't the GOP Senate Minority Leader (at the time) who said that but instead were from Communist North Korea?

(1) Banking, (2) trade, and (3) finance? (1) The Great Recession of 2008 nearly crashed the US and world financial system, and no one has been prosecuted - this is not normal Democratic Party behavior. I worked the Savings and Loan Crisis (late 1995) and we put plenty of those crooks behind bars in 1995-96. (2) The Trans Pacific (trade) pact was negotiated in secret with input from hundreds of corporate staffers and few generally from the typically-Democratic types, such as labor or environmentalists. It includes trademark and patent protections corporations couldn't get through Congress - see "SOPA." (3) We have just weakened the one law that came from the Great Recession, and now now financial institutions can trade derivatives again, just as if the USG hadn't put billions of dollars into bailing out the companies who did it in 2008.

My point isn't that you can't dislike Obama - I don't - but that some of the things i see written about him are just not true. Would he like to be a liberal? Probably, but he hasn't shown much of it with his actions so far, regardless of what the wing nits say.

jaywalker,

BEFORE you start making completely unfounded & SILLY comments about "racism", you should find out what color that my skin is, so that you don't LOOK foolish. - Fwiw, I'm FAR from the only "person of color" on this forum.

ADDENDA: When BHO has been "caught" in an OBVIOUS lie, ABC, CBS, NBC & PBS "news" have generally made excuses for his "miss-statements", rather than pointing out that he LIED.
(His dishonesty has recently become so obvious that THE WASHINGTON POST, which is a "progressive"/liberal newspaper, has started awarding him 3-4 "Pinocchios" for his dishonest "talking points".)

I believe what we have here is a leftist troll. Seen his kind elsewhere, and I don't intend to put up with much of it here.

Opposition to Obama is racist? Please. No one cares if he's black, white, or brown.

We DO, however, care quite a bit that he's RED.

Snake45,

Let him post his "progressive" (read: LEFTIST) foolishness. = I believe strongly in the FIRST AMENDMENT.

Even if he was OD green with blue polka-dots, BHO would be a remorseless liar & little more than that.
