    •The 1776 Tea Party — also known as TeaParty.org — is led by Stephen Eichler, executive director of the Minuteman Project, an anti-immigrant border patrol group often referred to as vigilantes.

    ...so?

    (That is not to say I agree with any of the above stated positions, I just don't see what they have to do with whether one pushes for smaller, more efficient government. I don't care if you believe that Yoda is the one true god and that midgets will inherit the Earth, as long as you can keep your beliefs out of my politics, and out of my gun rights.)

    What made NAACP's butt so clean? Just remember, three fingers are always pointing back.

    Doug,

    This is another drive-by posting. It would be nice to know what thoughts were behind your sharing this bit of trivia with us, but you do seem determined to keep your thoughts to your self.

    I find that behavior rather amazing, considering how often you otherwise share your thoughts and opinions on a wide variety of topics.

    So, tell us. What did you wish to share with us about this tidbit of news? How to you see it relative to the issue of firearms, RKBA, freedom or anything else?

    stay safe.

    Really want to talk about your new car or the movie you saw last night? This is where such topics should go. All other forum rules still apply here including the prohibition on discussing long gun carry, bashing other gun groups or LEOs and personal attacks.

    No kidding, Doug. But did you notice the verb
    to talk
    ?

    So how about talking about the article? Got anything to say about it? Anything at all?

    stay safe.
