NRA: New York State goes for the Kill.

New York's State Attorney General has moved to dissolve the NRA, based on accusations of fiscal mismanagement.

If they really had a case they'd be going Criminal, this is Ciil action so they can try to get across a lower bar.

If I'm NRA I file for change of venue, because an impartial jury in NY is about as likely as me sprouting a second trousersausage and finding a successful career in adult film.

Diamondback; All,

FYI, (in case you haven't heard) the NRA is COUNTER-SUING the State of NY for attempting to SUPRESS THE FREE SPEECH RIGHTS of over 5 MILLION American citizens & several other civil torts, as well.

Maybe they State will LOSE & we will not only get MORE MEMBERS & FREE PUBLICITY but INJURE the LEFTIST DAMNyankees, at the same time.

yours, sw

How long does one have to be south of the Mason-Dixon line to no longer be considered a damnyankee/G-ddamnyankee? I qualified as the latter. I not only came south, I stayed.

I've kicked in to the legal defense fund, but I've got to wonder about why bother to stay in NY? OK, tradition, history, principle etc, but DAMN!

Item: I recently had the same issue Doughboy had with passwords and stumbled upon the reason (I think) he had to change screen names. The site password security got bumped up and the minimum acceptable password now needs 10 characters and has to include high and lower case letters, numbers and symbols. May not be the exact reason but if anyone else has senioritis and has to reset their passwords, there's no warning about the new requirements-until you're establishing a new screen name.

Yeah, the new owners with all the sites they've devoured seem to be a Hacker Magnet. Since so many including Mas Ayoob have had problems and given up, I'm toying with the idea of setting up a satellite board over on ProBoards where us oldtimers can keep in touch. Not as competition, but as an adjunct like a branch office or satellite campus.

I have to wonder, if the NRA should have listened to Ollie North. I believe that he warned them about this. I'd hate to see the Organization go out like this. If there is truth to the charge, it is pretty bad. Morris Dees had to step down as the head of the Southern Poverty Law Center recently, I believe that it was for a similar reason.

They should go after La Pew and company, not the organization and would if this wasn't purely political. The NRA is the most effective political organization followed by Planned Parenthood. This isn't the first time they have gone after the NRA as a whole.

Well said, CSM. If it was a Criminal level case, they could just go after La Pierre & Co., as anther poster mentioned.

If they catch someone volunteering at the local Little League stealing funds, they will prosecute them, but no one tends to argue that Little League should be dissolved. It is very political here.

I'll also note that, if a State or City Prosecutor had argued that the SPLC should have been dissolved over those allegations, the national Media would likely have been very upset for the reasons they should be upset now over this move against the NRA as a whole.

It was a stupid, attention-grabbing stunt, that will most likely backfire.

Too bad we can't have a pro-life state AG do this to Planned Butcherhood...

William R. Moore,

I believe that most nativeborn SOUTHRONS would say that you grandchildren "won't be suspect" of being a "newcomer", which is NOT the same thing at all as a DY.
(Fyi, my first ancestor from Europe arrived in The Colonies of Carolina about 1610 & the rest of the European part of our family was in SC by 1630. - We are by NO means newcomers" & some of our ancestors fought the French in the F&I War, fought the Susquihannocks & Cherokee raiding parties, against the Tories at King's Mountain & in many other places in the United Colonies prior to getting American Independence.)
ADDENDA: Our family has had at least 2 members in every war fought by what is now the USA from the early 17thCentury until now. - In fact 2 members are currently serving in Afghanistan, as I write these lines.

A DAMNyankee is a SOUTH-hater, who despises our CSA flag, our Southern heroes, our memorials to our war dead, is FOOL enough to believe that TWBTS was about freeing slaves & thinks that submitting to anything advocated by LEFTISTS out of the Northeast is OK.

Personally, I will NEVER forgive/forget the TREASON toward SC & the CSA by Gov. Nikki Haley, when she agreed to take down our Battleflag at the SC Soldier's Monument. - As we still have family in Spartanburg, County I took her treachery personally.
(Had she simply said, "NO" and/or said, "GO POUND SAND", when the Northern press demanded that the Battleflag come down, we would NOT now have much of this current MESS.).


BTW, WHY exactly is it anybody's business but mine IF I choose to NOT change my screen-names, passwords or anything else on any Worldwideweird forum?
("Tend to your own business" & "If I want your advice, I'll ask for it." are 2 of my favorite sayings.)

Yours, sw
USA, Retired

The IT weenies have to earn their Cheetos & Mountain Dew/Red Bull. Having had to deal with them, they live in a world with little relation to ours or reality. They also don't care/realize that the rest of us prefer what we're used to and don't get all giddy about "new & improved" stuff that has some "advantages" that excites them, but we don't recognize or give a flying you know what about.

William R. Moore,

WELL SAID.

I would urge such persons, in the future, to ASK PERMISSION PRIOR TO changing ANYTHING that effects my account & PREFERABLY change NOTHING whatever unless it is NECESSARY.

yours, sw

I'm so damned tired of Blacks demanding "reparations." They would not be alive to day if it had not been for slavery. No, that's not a defense of slavery despite what Ed might think.

Have I mentioned my own "Modest Proposal" on "reparations" over here, or was that another site?

Oh well, simple one.

IF, and only IF, you can provably trace ancestry to at least one slave *on US soil* in the Civil War-and-prior timeframe, a quarter-million dollar one-time lump sum to your household plus relocation expenses to any other country in the world you want to go to. You and your household take this money, you all leave the country and irrevocably renounce your citizenships, no coming back even just to visit Disneyland. One time only offer, take it or leave it.

Good as far as it goes, but there needs to be a means of making sure no tax money from any White whose ancestors immigrated here after December 6th, 1865.

Why are you dragging me into your post Sam? You don't know what I think, leave me out of your BS.

Think of the bargain WE'd be getting by no longer having to deal with the kind of troublemakers and handout-driven Dem voters who'd take that offer...

For those who flunked American history the African nation of Liberia was established on land acquired for freed U.S. slaves by the American Colonization Society. The steamship line, the Black Star Line was a shipping line incorporated by Marcus Garvey and became a key part of Garvey's contribution to the Back-to-Africa movement.
