This isn’t freedom. This is fear.
"There is no legitimate purpose for a killing death hell machine like an AK-47"
"Lol your AK-47 couldn’t protect you from the government it’s not deadly enough"
Both statements are true. You don’t need to own a fucking AK-47 unless…
That guy with an AK from Bundy Ranch called.
He said you’re full of shit.
Please to explain to me how one redneck with an AK-47 can fight the US military which has fucking air strikes and drones ready at one phonecall away. You’re legitimately retarded if you think your AK-47 will have a chance of fighting your government m8. Fucking delusional.
Funfact: the US Military can’t effectively fight pre-industrial age peasants in Afghan with barely functioning AK-47s, and it’s taken over a decade to get effectively nowhere.
Considering US civilians have much nicer weapons, and we would be fighting on domestic land, we already have an advantage in that respect. On top of that, unlike the Taliban and Al Qaeda, there are a lot more sympathetic people in our military who probably wouldn’t be willing to fire upon their neighbors and family. Mass defectors would be guaranteed.
Also, wouldn’t airstrikes and drones on your own soil be kind of self-harming to the government’s image? Are you really okay with the government being that heartless to the people it’s supposed to protect? If you are, you’re part of the problem, m8. Hope you like living in the USSA, statist pinko.

Yesterday was my last day working on Capitol Hill as an intern. Personally I loved working up there. It was an amazing experience and I got to meet a lot of interesting people, Charles Krauthammer and Charles Bolden to name a few. Plus, playing softball with my coworkers on the Mall was fun as hell. If you have the opportunity to intern up on the Hill, definitely do it. You’d be surprised as to how much you can learn.
The reason there were armed supporters at the Bundy Ranch and not at the Mike Brown Protest is simple: Missouri doesn’t let citizens carry rifles, and Nevada does.
This is the gun control you wanted, Tumblr. You don’t get to complain about it now… this is exactly what you wanted. Only the cops have guns.
Robin Williams on a USO holiday tour at Forward Operating Base Wilson in Afghanistan, December 2010.
On time, I sabotaged an entire mission to see Robin Williams live. We were on a mounted patrol from Imam Ali Air Base all the way to Joint Base Balad. It’s about 300 miles, and takes 18 hours if you don’t run into any problems. Halfway through, we had to stop and refuel in Camp Liberty. While we were there, we found out Robin Williams was putting on a free show that night.
My gunner and I went back to our truck, and blew as many fuses as we could. We convinced another crew to do the same, and when it was time to roll out… oops. Two trucks are down and nobody knows why. Long story short, we got to URON in Camp Liberty. That’s an “Unscheduled Remain Over Night,” while the mechanics tried to figure out what was wrong with our trucks.
He was hilarious. It was nothing but adults, so the Disney-rated jokes were out the window, and it was amazing adult humor. He gave an amazing show, and afterwards even hung out with everyone, shaking hands and giving hugs, and drinking non-alcoholic beer. I’ll never forget his closing remarks, though. At the end of the show, he turned a joke into a serious moment to talk about suicide. A lot of soldiers had been killing themselves recently, so he reached out, encouraging people to not be ashamed if they were sad.
He said that he knows everyone sees him as a clown, but clowns just paint smiles over their frowns. He said that sometimes, even the best smiles can’t hide the painted tears, and there’s no shame in trying to hide your sadness. He really understood what it felt like to carry depression, and now it makes more sense.
I haven’t thought about Robin Williams in years. Now, selfishly, and too late… I wish I had. He was a great man who genuinely just wanted to save people from sadness.
I literally felt like I did not have a choice.
Robin Williams says reblog, you reblog.
did i even really have a choice?
okay robin williams
i hesitated for a second and then considered the repercussions
just gonna reblog…
I kind of want to cry
Irony is bobsavage's use of “Capitalism” in an attempt at criticism, when it is Capitalism that provides this man with a living.
Rest in piece, Robin Williams. Damn fine actor. He was a huge supporter of the USO and volunteered every chance he got. He even insisted to being sent to the front to entertain.
