The corporations will take the guns away!
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 08:47 AM by Joanne98
ATTENTION GUN NUTS! You better pay attention to the Supreme Court ruling. You need to know something very important about the secret agenda of the "One World Corporation"

Did you know that the OWC has already built a model which they think is perfect? They have and it's called Singapore. Whenever you need to know what the future looks like all you have to do is look to Singapore.

The Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation are once again raving about "perfect" Singapore.


Wall Street Journal Reports Singapore Worlds Second Freest Economy

Singapore is the second freest economy in the 2010 Index of Economic Freedom published by Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation.

The Index considers trade, investment and labor freedom as well as freedom from corruption. Among the 179 countries ranked, Singapore scores top in labor freedom.

For over a decade, The Wall Street Journal and
The Heritage Foundation, Washingtons preeminent think tank, have tracked the march of economic freedom around the world with the influential Index of Economic Freedom.

But apparently all that "freedom" doesn't include guns.

Question: What are the laws regarding gun ownership? Are shooting facilities available and open to the public? Specifically are skeet and sporting clays facilities available? What about private gun/handgun ownership?

Answer: Gun ownership in Singapore is illegal. There is however a private gun club which provides rifles and ammunition for skeet and trap shooting. Membership costs S$3300 plus S$300 a year.

Yep! When the corporations buy what's left of our country they will take away your guns and you can put that in the bank! The most perfect place in the world doesn't allow it. Must be all that "labor" freedom!

I think the gun nuts should call the NRA and ask them if there's a secret corporate plan to repeal the 2nd amendment. Not that they'd tell the truth but someone should ask them anyway.

17. Capitalistic Freedom
Not necessarily individual freedom. Capitalism doesn't automatically equate to Freedom.. Or Democracy even..

7. I don't know what's in the plan, but it's obvious there is a plan and it involves
the rewriting of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

We can assume that there will be no protests, no revolutions. Subservience is essential to them. They show that all the time. The atrocities of the RNC in St. Paul is a little example. Arresting licensed journalists, for example. We are heading more to the USSR, than Singapore, imo.

16. Sad thing though...
The side that fires the first shot will lose.

We need a restoration of the Constitution, not a revolution!

11. Hence, the vigorous defense of the 2nd Amendment as a civil right which is sometimes attacked

from the left and sometimes the right.

12. Maybe when the corporations start trampling on the 2nd Amendment, those who ignore the fact
the U.S. Constitution has twenty six other amendments to it they'll wake up and see it was the corporations running things all along.

14. On the upside, though...
In Singapore it's probably very legal for people to own bamboo switches they can use to beat the shit out of each other.

Isn't Civilization wonderful?

15. Is fear the only tool left to appeal to the senses of the selfish?
The loud and violent authoritarian 28% of the population that is trotted about on fear's leash to get nuts elected and destructive and mindless laws passed you would want activated by your side?

Or just to deactivate many of them in this battle of the extinction of species?

18. Until we realize that so-called 'economic freedom' (neo-liberalism) is
completely counter to what we think of as 'democratic', we will not have a democracy.

There can be no socio-political democracy without economic democracy.
