MADE IN AMERICA…and Other Stuff, Too

Courtesy of a retired Navy veteran; par excellence.  Seems the whole **** world is made in China, with a fraction of other goods made in Vietnam, Mexico, or some other third world country.  Even -omitted- toothpicks are made in China.  “X”

made Amer

Once again, my rage-level has gone beyond what is allowable, at least for me. Let’s start with the recent murders of the two New York City policemen. They were assassinated, and that’s the proper word, by a nut-job who had killing on his mind. He was black, he was a Muslim, and he was a nut-job and that seems to be the entrance requirements to Islam.

Now, don’t squirm in your seat and then decide to write me and tell me that “not all Muslimsï are nut-jobs, or that we’re “not at war with Islam” because I’ll have to disagree with you on both counts. Every report, so far, where acts of terror have been committed, or tried to be, have been done by followers of Islam, and in the name of Allah. Why else would they shout that phrase before they kill, either themselves or others?

This, now, is going to be my tag-line, because I truly believe that we are going to be in an armed conflict in this country. The Muslims are coming, the Muslims are coming! Paul Revere didn’t say that, but he sounded the alarm about the British, and I’m trying to do the same about the Muslims.

I recently received two pairs of lounging pants… that’s the bottom half of flannel pajamas in case you didn’t know. The giver was very proud that they were an American brand. Being a person that dislikes tags on things, I went to cut them off and discovered that this famous American brand was now made in China. Holy moley…don’t we make anything in this country anymore? That’s a rhetorical question because I know we do, and there are websites devoted to American-made products. Imagine that, having to look up a website to see what you can buy that’s still made in the US of A.

We use a lot of plastic storage containers, ostensibly from ”Betty Crocker”, a brand name owned by General Mills, but the containers which are stamped with the logo, are made in China. I own guns, Winchesters, Smith and Wessons, Colts…all the name brands, right? Recently I bought a gun, a carbine, that was an exact replica of a Winchester 1873 model, and found out it was made in Brazil. Say…didn’t we give them a couple of billion a few years back, to develop their oil industry? And didn’t they turn around and sell the stuff to everybody but us…but I could be wrong on that.

Both the Winchester Super X2 and the newer Super X3 are made in Belgium, with additional assembly work done in Portugal. Since the mid 1990’s all Winchester historic lever actions (formerly called Limited Editions) have been made at this same factory. This includes the rifles listed here…Historic Winchesters: Model 1885 Single Shot, Model 1886 lever action, Model 1892 lever action, Model 1895 lever action, Model 1873 lever action. These “Historical Winchesters” are back in production today after being absent from the market for many decades. All are in production today. All are made in Japan.

The Chrysler 300 isn’t “Imported from Detroit,” as the tagline on its TV ad implies. It’s made in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, with, in some models, an engine from Mexico. Likewise, a radio ad calling the Ford Fusion an American-made car isn’t so all-American after all. Fusions are built in Mexico.

Although manufactured in the United States, the Jeep is a collaborative effort of companies from several different countries. The chassis shop is managed by a Korean company, the body shop is run by a German firm, and a Canadian-Austrian business oversees the paint. Ultimately, however, Jeep is an American car owned by Chrysler which is owned by Fiat of Italy.

Chevrolet cars have been rolling off the assembly line since 1911. The Bogota plant, in Bogota, Colombia, and the Daewoo Incheon Motor company plant in Incheon, South Korea build the Chevrolet Aveo hatchback and sedan. The CAMI Automotive plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada builds the Chevrolet Equinox. Oshawa Car Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada is where the Chevrolet Impala is produced, as well as the Camaro…and we could go on and on, but you get the picture.

Made in America…are you sure about that?

The irony in this is that we are a nation that made these things first, and we made them better than anybody else. Now we outsource everything and I blame that on two things; greed and taxes…well, now that I think about it you can roll taxes into greed and that answers the question entirely.

When are we going to put this country back to work, and back on its feet? That answer is also simple…when you get the foreigner in the White House out of there…oh wait, when you say foreigner you have to be specific, because there’s so many of them in this administration. Even the President was not …made in America…

This idiocy has been going on as long as I can remember… While it wouldn’t even begin to register against the size of our national debt, and the steers in Congress just gave the Dems over 1 trillion, it still shows exactly how much we need to remove these leeches from office. “X”   From Darla Dawald:


Ever wonder how we got into this mess and what it will take to get us out of debt? For starters, why are we funding these ridiculous programs and why is it that NO ONE is crying FOUL in Congress? These are some of the things that we must bring to the attention of of our new Congress and Senate in 2015 to address!

Yes, thanks to your tax dollars, wasteful programs (including ones like the $237,205 study that measures how rainfall affects red crabs) were funded with government money.

This infographic breaks down seven of those projects.

According to the Heritage Foundation:

In 2014, federal spending reached $3.5 trillion and the deficit was $486 billion. Compared with trillion-dollar deficits following the Great Recession, this presents a small and temporary improvement in the nation’s fiscal situation. However, this minor improvement does not mean that government can stop cutting back on spending. As the figures and graphics in this report show, that would be the wrong conclusion to draw.

The national debt will still reach nearly $18 trillion this year and it already exceeds 100 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Publicly held debt (that is, debt borrowed in credit markets, excluding Social Security’s trust fund), is alarmingly high at three-quarters of GDP. Without further spending reforms, rising debt threatens to impede growth, harm Americans’ economic opportunities, and even threaten the nation’s security.

 Deficits fell in 2014 because President Obama and Congress raised taxes on all working Americans, the economy saw some improvement which helped to bring in more revenue, extended unemployment benefits were allowed to expire, and spending cuts from sequestration and spending caps under the Budget Control Act of 2011 took effect.

Congress should not take this short-term and modest deficit improvement as a signal to grow complacent about reining in exploding spending. Existing spending cuts and tax increases will not prevent deficits from rising next year, and before the end of the decade exceeding $1 trillion again. Driving this is federal spending, which is projected to grow by 66 percent by 2024.

The nation’s long-term spending trajectory remains on a fiscal collision course. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare are too large and growing rapidly. While the Budget Control Act of 2011 and sequestration are modestly restraining the discretionary budget, mandatory spending—including entitlements—continues to grow nearly unabated. Eighty-five percent of the projected growth in spending over the next decade is due to entitlement spending and interest on the debt. Obamacare is the largest driver of increasing federal health care spending, and it alone will add $1.8 trillion in federal spending by 2024.

While mandatory spending is growing out of control and needs reform, there are also plenty of items to cut in the rest of the budget. For example, the National Institutes of Health spent $387,000 to study the effects of Swedish massage on rabbits, and according to a report from the Government Accountability Office, duplication of federal programs and services could cost taxpayers $45 billion annually.

Lawmakers should eliminate waste, duplication, and inappropriate spending; privatize functions better left to the private sector; and leave areas best managed on a more local level to states and localities. Most important, Congress should reform the entitlement programs so that they become more affordable and benefit those with the greatest need.


Budget Trends

  • In 1965, defense spending was 7.2 percent of GDP and mandatory spending on entitlement programs and net interest was 5.7 percent of GDP, one-third lower.

  • In 2014, spending on defense is 3.5 percent of GDP, or less than half of what it was in 1965, and falling, while mandatory spending (including net interest) is reaching 14.3 percent of GDP and growing.

  • Total annual spending will increase by $2.3 trillion in nominal terms, growing from $3.5 trillion in 2014 to $5.8 trillion in 2024.

  • Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid make up 77 percent, or more than three-fourths, of mandatory program spending in 2014 and have no budget limits.

  • Discretionary spending, the part of the budget that Congress budgets each year, will increase by 29 percent over 10 years, but only if lawmakers enforce sequestration.

  • Discretionary spending as a share of the budget will fall from two-thirds in 1964 to less than one-quarter in 2024, as entitlements grow uncontrolled.

  • Mandatory spending will grow from one-quarter of the budget in 1965 to 63 percent by 2024. When net interest is added, this spending would consume three-fourths of the budget.

It’s WAY PAST TIME for some Congressional Oversight! 

Indifference, apathy, “I didn’t do anything wrong, why should I worry”…

Followers of my blog need only peruse the tabs “Big Brother” or “Free Country” to find other evidence as to why inaction makes you complicit in your own demise.  Remember (in view of recent developments) that the Department of Homeland Security went on a bullet buying spree; and these were said to be for training. Hollow points are NOT used for training.  Our supposed victories in the recent election proved how corrupt Boehner and others are by allowing another egregious bill to be passed, when it should have been shot down, despite the national debt being well over 18 Trillion dollars.


Second of two video from above author.

Regardless of where on this planet you live, and no matter what your nationality, the fact that the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA are still on the books, should disturb you on a fundamental level. If not, give it three minutes.

The National Defense Authorization Act which was passed in 2012 and extended in 2013 and 2014, authorizes the U.S. military to arrest anyone, anywhere on the planet, to deny them access to a lawyer, and to detain them indefinitely without at trial. Furthermore the U.S. government claims the right to do all of this in secret.

The right to a fair trial, is gone, and without the right to a fair trial, you have no rights at all.

Of course some would argue that the NDAA only targets enemies of the United States, as if this somehow would make it ok, but that defense doesn’t hold water. (And by the way the NDAA does apply to U.S. citizens.)

It doesn’t matter who the law claims to target, and it doesn’t matter under what conditions the politicians claim it can be used. If you don’t have the right to a lawyer, and you don’t get your day in court, and if the government isn’t even obligated to disclose the fact that they dragged you from your house in the middle of the night, then who is going to make sure this isn’t abused? The soldiers? The politicians? Come on.

The power to make someone disappear without a trial is the power to make up any excuse that’s convenient. Evidence is only needed if you have to prove your case in court. That’s why we have courts.

The protections codified in the constitution were put there for a reason, but at this point it looks very much as if America is going to learn that lesson the hard way.

Land of the free right?

You can put your hand over your heart and celebrate something that no longer exists, or you can be honest with yourself.

That might be a bit painful. No one wants to believe that their kids are going to live under a military dictatorship. No one wants to see this coming. So most people put their head in the sand.

Those who don’t, always start with one question: What can we do?

The first thing you need to understand here is that our problem is psychological not material. You have the means to take your power. And you don’t need a set of specific instructions. You don’t need someone to hold your hand and explain your role. You don’t need someone to give you permission. What you need, is to turn off your tv, turn off your radio, put down the ipad, and ask yourself if you’re going to be able to look your grandchildren in the eyes and tell them honestly that you did everything in your power to turn this around.

Are you going to push this out of your mind because it’s uncomfortable, or are you going convert that discomfort into a driving force?

I’ll tell you this much: If that thought itches in the minds of enough people we’ll figure out a way to scratch it, and If that driven feeling is fully established in your heart, you’ll find a way to make it spread.

P.S. If you want a practical starting point to take action on the NDAA get in contact with the guys at People Against the NDAA. Dan Johnson (the founder) is one of those driven people who are making a difference.

Christmas Lights

I love Christmas lights. They remind me of the people who voted for Obama.
They all hang together; half of the little bastards don’t work; and the ones that do, aren’t that bright.


This was posted by me here on Nov 9 2012.  My job situation has changed, (better) however, what I said then about hyper inflation goes double now. I post this in regard to the effects of Apostasy in America, and the sad effect on the economy by this Regime’s “quantitative easing”.

We’re seeing the last vestiges of the America we knew, becoming part of the globalists scheme. I am a realist, not an optimist. We here as Patriots, who believe in Jehova God, -and are not tares- know full well what prophecy says about “this generation shall not pass”… I am not a “doomsayer” – I am merely a little guy, no home, no assets, nothing but a one bdrm apartment, and a subsistance wage job.

I’m including a link to Joseph Farah’s article on WND at the bottom of my commentary, which really says it all.  Had we, as Conservatives put our foot down thirty years ago, and that cannot be emphasised enough, the demoralization of an entire generation, via the public school system, Atheists therein, and an increasingly socalist government would most likely have been thwarted.  The following link: clearly shows how much Apostacy has contributed to our current situation. Given the percentages, (excerpt from above link):

The Canadian Ipsos Reid poll released September 12, 2011 entitled “Canadians Split On Whether Religion Does More Harm in the World than Good,” sampled 1,129 Canadian adults and came up 30% who do not believe in a god. Interestingly, the same poll found that 33% of respondents who identified themselves as Catholics and 28% Protestants said they didn’t believe in a god. Italics my emphasis – “X”

This of course, to those who believe, shows the percentage of tares among the above religious groups. Moreover, their numbers seem to be increasing, not just in Canada, but worldwide.

We are indeed in a battle for Americas very soul.

Mr. Farah mentions 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I shudder to think – Exactly how many of us now fit this category in America?

Many “twenty-somethings” do know what’s going on, and are appalled by their peers having bought into Obama’s con game, but they, like us, seem to be a minority.

I just read a blog on an article with a link to, where Harry Reid (GAG)… well read it for yourself: – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Wednesday that if the $16.394 trillion current legal limit on the federal government’s debt must be raised in the next few months by another $2.4 trillion, “We’ll raise it.”

That would set the debt limit at $18.794 trillion.

The steers in Congress have caved to an increase each time before; each time we do this, the road back to financial stability gets more and more difficult, if not impossible.  Looking at this straight in the eye, this Patriot thinks we have reached the point of no return.  Even IF they take the bull by the horns, and enforce a halt to spending, the road ahead will be just as rough as the last four years. It took thirty plus years of negligence to get us here; it won’t get solved overnight.

I do not see this happening.  One more raising of the debt limit, and I sincerely think that the hyperinflation experienced by the Weimar Republic, will at some point thereafter, be experienced here.  We have never in our history faced a more grave situation.

Here is a bit of History – After our ’29 crash we called in loans made to prop up their republic after WWI: [URL]

EXCERPT:“After the Wall Street Crash, America gave Germany 90 days to start to re-pay money loaned to her.  No other world power had the money to give Germany cash injections. Britain and France were still recovering from the First World War and the Wall Street Crash was to have an impact on industrial Britain.  Stalin’s Russia was still in a desperate state and embarking on the 5 year plans.  Therefore, an impoverished Weimar Germany could only call on America for help and she was effectively bankrupt by the end of 1929 and quite incapable of lending money.  Companies throughout Germany – though primarily in the industrial zones such as the Ruhr – went bankrupt and workers were laid off in their millions.

Unemployment affected nearly every German family just 6 years after the last major economic disaster – hyperinflation– had hit Weimar.”

September 1928      650,000 unemployed

September 1929   1,320,000 unemployed

September 1930   3,000,000 unemployed

September 1931   4,350,000 unemployed

September 1932   5,102,000 unemployed

January 1933        6,100,000 unemployed

Need I “prophecy” about America? I dare not.  I’ll just say one thing – Who is holding billions of American debt?  HERE is Mr Farah’s blog:It’s time for cultural counter-revolution

Years ago, I lost a good friend; he had a heart attack while golfing. This Cancer is taking yet another vacation in Hawaii, and plans to go golfing there. Hmmm… Please, God.


Obama Orchestrating Regime Change in Israel

Monday, December 15, 2014

Netanyahu obama israel

President Obama’s toxic foreign policy consists mainly of placating America’s adversaries and manipulating our friends (that and combatting the imminent threat of global warming with a one-sided American policy of economic seppuku). Now we are learning of Obama’s latest reach into what has always been the ken of agencies like the CIA: regime change. Only this isn’t to topple Communism in Central America or extremists in Tehran. It’s to overthrow Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in our middle-east ally Israel.

Aaron Klein wrote in the Jerusalem Post,

The White House has singled out Netanyahu as standing in the way of Obama’s utopian vision for a new Middle East and Persian Gulf. What better way to bypass this obstacle than aiding in Netanyahu’s removal from office?

Last week, Netanyahu’s fragile coalition finally fractured, with both Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, dismissed, and Netanyahu’s dissolving of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) with new elections to be scheduled. This will be Netanyahu’s greatest internal challenge, and Klein contents that it was in no small part brought about by the Obama administration’s meddling in Israeli politics.

His points are convincing.

Last October, Netanyahu’s Defense Minister Ya’alon was denied a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)0%, and National Security Adviser (and national stunt double) Susan rice during his visit to Washington. This basically never happens.
Ha’aretz reported that prior to a meeting between Obama and Netanyahu last October, a classified discussion was held “about possibly taking more proactive measures against the “settlements,” including mulling sanctions or punishing Israel at the United Nations.”
Following the meeting, both the State Department and the White House released almost identical statements condemning new construction in East Jerusalem. Netanyahu’s political adversaries jumped right in, as if on cue, criticizing him in Israel.
Jeffrey Goldberg’s hit-piece in October described senior Obama officials as calling Netanyahu a “chickenshit” on the Palestinian peace process. This was framed as a crisis in The Atlantic article, and also by Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid, a Netanyahu opponent who is part of the now-sunk coalition.

Importing Jihad: Obama Administration Plans “to Lead in Resettling” “Refugees” from Syria

by 1dragon

Pamela Geller

The only “refugees” the US should be bringing in are Christians and other religious minorities who are being oppressed, ethnically cleansed and murdered in Syria, Iraq and other Muslim countries under Islamic rule.

But Obama has long abandoned religious minorities under Islamic rule.
Instead, Obama continues to import jihad. The consequences of Muslim immigration on free societies is ruinous.

The UN decides who is a “refugee” under the “Refugee Resettlement Program.” UNHCR decides, and the UN is driven by the largest world body — the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation), whose goal is to impose Islam across the world. And they are doing it — with money, media, men and ….. Obama.

Obama overturns ban preventing criminal Ecuadorean Democratic donor from entering U.S.

by 1dragon

Hot Air

This is more than just another of those moments that warily conservatives point to when President Barack Obama or his defenders insist that no administration has operated stricter border controls or pursued more deportations of illegal immigrants. This is criminal.

According to a damning report in The New York Times, the White House recently overturned a ban on allowing a wealthy Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats.

“The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids,” The Times reported. “But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.”

Reform Birthright Citizenship



Birthright Citizenship is the practice of granting automatic citizenship to children born in the United States. Under current federal law, nearly all children born in the U.S. receive automatic citizenship, regardless of whether their parents are lawfully in the country. This practice has created a magnet for foreign nationals who want their children to have U.S. citizenship and spawned creation of a cottage industry devoted to helping pregnant “tourists” illicitly enter this country for the purpose of giving birth.

In 2010, “there were 4.5 million U.S.-born children whose parents were unauthorized [illegal],” according to the Pew Hispanic Center (Pew Hispanic Research Trends Project, “A Nation of Immigrants: A Portion of the 40 Million, Including 11 Million Unauthorized,” Pew Hispanic Center, Jan. 29, 2013.) The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has estimated that nearly 200,000 children are born annually “to foreign women admitted as visitors, that is, tourists, students, guest workers, and other non-immigrant categories.”

Eight percent of all U.S. births (approximately 350,000 a year) come from at least one illegal-alien parent, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

There is also a national-security component to the issue, as illustrated by the case of one child in this category: Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born cleric who became one of al-Qaeda’s top operational planners of terrorism.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has introduced H.R.140, the Birthright Citizenship Act, which would end the practice by requiring that at least one of the child’s parents be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) has introduced a companion bill in the Senate, S.301.

The Immigration and Nationality Act defines Birthright Citizenship in the United States, but there is also a clause in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. While the Supreme Court has interpreted the latter Birthright Citizenship clause as it applies to legal immigrants, it has never done so with regard to illegal aliens.

The United States and Canada are the only developed nations that grant automatic citizenship so expansively to children born within their borders. Anyone born in the United States is considered an American citizen regardless of whether the parents are U.S. citizens, legal residents, temporary visitors, or illegal aliens in the U.S. (Here is a more detailed country-by-country list of the status of national laws regarding birthright citizenship.) Automatic citizenship is granted according to federal statute, not the 14th Amendment, so critics of the policy argue that this could be reformed by changing or repealing the statute outright.

Veteran legal scholar John Eastman believes that Members of Congress who passed the 14th Amendment never intended that it include Birthright Citizenship in its current form. Eastman points to the wording of the 1866 Civil Rights Act as providing the key to the meaning of the 14th Amendment and the intent of the Framers.

The act provides that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States.” This formulation makes clear, Eastman writes, that any child born on U.S. soil to parents who were temporary visitors to this country and remained a citizen or subject of the parents’ home country “was not entitled to claim the birthright citizenship provided by the 1866 Act.”

But for now, the constitutional meaning of the amendment as it applies to illegal immigrants will remain uncertain until the Supreme Court interprets it.
The expansive interpretation of the 14th Amendment currently in effect has potentially troubling national-security implications. In a CIS backgrounder, a retired government employee with extensive national security experience, points to Anwar al-Awlaki — a terrorist with links to jihadists including Umar Farouk Abdulmutullab, who attempted to bomb a jetliner with a bomb hidden in his underwear as the plane prepared to land near Detroit, and Nidal Malik Hasan, who massacred 13 people in 2009 at Fort Hood, Tex. — as an example of how Birthright Citizenship has the potential to benefit enemies of the United States.

Awlaki was born on April 22,1971 in Las Cruces, N.M. to non-immigrant parents while his father was studying as a foreign student in the United States. He left the United States with his parents when they returned to Yemen but later re-entered the United States, using his American passport, where he became spiritual mentor to several of the 9/11 hijackers before returning to Yemen and becoming a senior al-Qaeda operative. Awlaki was killed in a U.S. drone strike on Sept. 30, 2011.

The Birthright Citizenship Act, H.R. 140, would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act – not the Constitution – to consider a person born in the United States “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national; (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States; or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Six years ago, I ventured out of my safe, cozy, JibJab site; (It succumbed in Dec ’08) and joined the fight under the pseudonym that I retain to this day.  I had a very brief, and totally disgusting stay at Facebook; it took to rid me of them, as their custom was to make a site “dormant” but didn’t allow you to delete it through regular channels. 

Note – if you need to know how much of a trail you have left on the Wild,Wild,Web, the URL is:

A Gun Store Promotes Proper Gun Safety – Facebook’s Response Will Leave You Stunned

While the First Amendment would seem to protect your right to show love for the Second, it’s not always the case.

Facebook has some pretty strict policies when it comes to talking about firearms.

And a North Carolina gun store is learning that even if you’re trying to educate people about guns to keep them safe, that’s too much Second Amendment for Facebook. According to WSCO TV:

The Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte recently posted the ad online for a Veterans Day sale on safes and vaults.

Owner Larry Hyatt told WSOC-TV the ad was posted because the store didn’t feel like it violated Facebook’s policy on banning ads for weapons.

Facebook said ads cannot indirectly link back to pages where guns can be purchased.

The social media giant said the ad violated the policy and wrote, “The decision is final. Please consider this the end of our correspondence about your ad.”

Well, how about that?

While Facebook banned the ad because it linked back to a site where you could buy guns, all the store was trying to do was promote reasonable and sensible gun safety.

While liberals always jabber away about how there needs to be tougher gun laws, you and I both know gun laws don’t keep guns out of people’s hands.

But safes can and do.

It’s Facebook’s prerogative to ban the ad, that’s up to them.

The sad thing is Facebook is the #2 website in the world. That means their stance on guns influences how many people all over the U.S. feel about guns.

Fortunately, Facebook isn’t the government, and it’s a good thing people can still talk about guns and share gun pictures and videos on the popular site.

And while you can’t post ads that link to a place where guns are sold, one thing you can do right now is learn how to build an off the books AR-15…
