    I won't even look at FB. However, I will be at the Ohio Statehouse tomorrow.

    I can't believe that people who believe so fervently in Liberty will subjugate themselves to the demands of FB.

    Actually, facebook is a social networking site, just like OCDO, in which friends and family can keep in contact with one another and share ideas with like-minded people.

    Your facebook-demonizing sounds similar to the "Ban that rifle because it has a shoulder thing that goes up" mentality. Let's be logical folks.

    If you cannot distinguish between (1) stating that one does not like something, is choosing not to use it, and is explaining why and (2) calling for the banning of something, then it is you who are not being logical.

    It is your choice to be a member of the Collective, and my choice not to be and to express why not. That is called Liberty.

    Moving on to discussions with folks for whom logic and Liberty matter.

    ^^This^^ is stating one does not like something, choosing not to use it, and explaining why.

    ^^This^^ is an emotional, sarcastic, caricature. There, difference has been explained, however very simply. I still wouldn't equate that line to banning something. Just someone venting their dislike for FB.

    Hope everyone has a productive time at their respective capitols. Remember, stay calm and do don't give in to mob mentality. We need to show a good image to the press and to our representatives.

    You didn't say you didn't like something. You referred to people who use Facebook as the "borg collective". Also, I don't have a facebook either...and logic and liberty? I voted for Gary Johnson. You got me all wrong there, guy.

    Letter To Obama from Utah Sheriff's Association...

    I attended Gun Appreciation Day in Salt Lake City today, and I estimate about 2,000 other people were there as well. All the speeches (about 6 of them as I recall) were excellent, and got rousing applause from the crowd. One thing in particular that I thought would be worth sharing with the forum, is a letter from the Utah Sheriff's Association to somebody's president in Washington D.C. The final paragraph of which reads:
    We respect the Office of the President of the United States of America. But, make no mistake, as the duly-elected sheriffs of our respective counties, we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights—in particular Amendment II—has given them. We, like you, swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.

    The Utah Sheriffs’ Association
    The entire letter is viewable at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cache-...202461?fref=ts

    Those attending rally - OC'ers, those with CFPs, even a few long guns - were very responsible, and of a single voice. In essence, Utah gun owners believe that The Second Amendment is the keystone to the Constitution - remove the Second and the rest will fall. Pax...

    P.S. 6,085 likes on Facebook as of 6:45pm today.

    Considering the temperature and the location so far north, it was definitely an excellent turnout. There were four OCDO members (that I know of) from the Medford area (one "dragged" his family with him) which was a 3.5 hour drive in fog and freezing temps......both ways.
