Vent Page XLVII - Автомат Калашникова

OK, that's AK,  as in the AK-47 Kalashnikov - the most popular assault rifle of all time!


 Our Icon for number 47 has to be the AK-47 Kalashnikov, forerunner of all military assault rifles and still in use by the military of many countries throughout the world.
Hard to believe that this "modern" weapon was first put into use in 1947! According to WIKI, appx 100 million of this rifle and it's derivatives have been manufactured.
AK-47 Kalashnikov


Whenever the number of posts on a vent page make it cumbersome to navigate, a new vent page is started. This is number FORTY-SEVEN  in our series!

VENT PAGES are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name?Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU!!

And, of course for our car fans, "47" is the year for the 1947 Studebaker with it's "Coming or Going?" styling! This is the car that many believe led Detroit into the modern era of styling and design.. Designed by famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy who also gave us the Streamliner railroad engine, coke machine, and numerous corporate logos - not to mention the paint design of Air Force One! (If Loewy were still around he would probably be disigning for Apple Computers!)/

Obama sent M-4s to Mexican drug lords to try and get them hooked on American guns.

guy faulkes said...

In reality, Obama sent guns to Mexico to increase crime, link U.S. guns to that crime, and to use that link to try to destroy the Second Amendment.

I am very fond of my AKs.

1 1/2 Minute of angle accurate ( roughly able to put all it's shots into 1 1/2" at 100 yards) and stone cold reliable it has become the symbol of rebellion the world over.

In many areas of the world it is considered a rite of passage into manhood to acquire one.

It's even on the flags of a country,, Mozambique.

A WARNING.

A new tactic used by the lefties against conservative bloggers is "Swatting", when a false call is placed to 911 claiming that the blogger has killed his wife.

This is intended to send the paramilitary SWAT teams to the blogger's home in hopes of causing a confrontation.

The latest victim's story is here:

Sarkazein said...

Swatting puts the family and the officers at risk. And the family dog. This is why the leftists are Marxist thugs

guy faulkes said...

Sark, how likely is it that the documents Obama refuses to release contain proof that Fast and Furious was indeed a plot to attack the Second Amendment, in your opinion?

Sarkazein said...

Guy Faulkes- Depends whether or not they were "smart" enough not to put it in writing. It is rumored that some of those F&F guns went to the Eastern Seaboard too. This makes it even more likely that it is subterfuge on Obama's part.

Sarkazein said...

Guy Faulkes- Obama's Fast & Furious subterfuge may also tie into the UN Small Arms Treaty Hillary is pushing

guy faulkes said...

I had not thought of the UN possibility, Sark. Good point.

Rodger Young said...

The AK is a great rifle. Wish I had one. I only have a 22 rifle and a small caliber handgun for home defense, but I hope to upgrade someday.

Too bad the AK and other great guns will be taken away by Hussein Obama if he gains another term. Look at the end run hussein obama is doing to the Constitution regarding immigration. A good blue print for gun control. The immigration policy of our government is, of course, to gain the illegal alien vote, but it serves another purpose.

hussein obama and other fringe leftists will gauge public reaction to amnesty and then tailer gun control based on that reaction. With Americans in a zombie like trance these days, don't think for an instant the liberal socialists aren't watching and planning.

I see little outcry from much of anyone concerning high gas prices, illegal aliens taking american's jobs, amnesty, health care, NADAA, Patriot Act, metal detectors at Watauga County Courthouse, and TSA groping infants. Why would gun control be any different?

I have to hand it to hussein obama. He is shaking things up. Taking audacious steps to turn America into what he and the liberals want it to be. He/they don't apologize. They keep marching to their own tune, and the world be damned. Pelosi even tells the American public to read about health care after it's passed. And Americans swallow it.

Had the RINO Republitards had any backbone, they might've had things their way. But no. We are stifled with John Boehner, Skip Stam, Richard Burr, and a host of other RINOs. They have been given opportunity after opportunity and frittered it all away.

Boehner is in la la land. Nothing to say about Fast and Furious. Anyone notice that? Behind the scenes I hear he wants to concede that one. Then here at home we have Republitard Skip Stam and some idiot named Apodaca who won't allow restaurant carry out of committee. What a bunch of dweebs. Will the proletariat hold them accountable?

You have to hand it to the liberals. They are getting things done. The wrong things of course, but they are DOING SOMETHING. The rest of the country idly watches as liberty robbing law after liberty robbing law is passed. The liberals are giving us a real thrashing.

So, how will you give up your AK or AR or grandaddies shotgun? Will you give it up as easily as you gave the country over to illegal aliens? Will you give it up like you did with health care? Be interesting.

Rodger Young said...

hussein obama has ordered napolitano to prevent ICE from accepting illegal aliens arrested by police and sheriff's departments in AZ. This was after the Supreme Court declared the AZ law Constitutional!

"Sark" according to your link about Obama cutting fire fighter crews the story is about defense cuts, not about the President cutting crews or planes after the fires stared.

"The Air Force took the brunt of Pentagon budget cuts in the 2013 budget"

the 2013 budget does not seem to affect this weeks fires to me.

But they are out to get you "Sark"

Sarkazein said...

The lying bastards swore Obamacare was not a tax while they were selling, bribing, and extorting to pass it. They get to the Supreme Court and argue it is a tax and win.
American citizens have been duped by Marxist thugs.

Take back the Senate and the Presidency and overturn their thuggery.

guy faulkes said...

The Health Care Bill has been upheld by the Supreme Court. The original mandate was upheld as a tax although Obama was adamant it was not a tax but part of the commerce clause att the time it was passed. I guess this was just another lie to the American people.

The end result of this has two possibilities. The first is that it will so enrage people that it might make Romney electable. Right no, he is not.

The second is that people are going to abandon the Republican party because they never take the fight to the liberals, but are always fighting a defensive battle that slowly moves the country to the left.

A friend of mine that has been very active in Republican campaigning just called me and brought this up. He has come around to my way of thinking but taken it even farther. He says he will only vote for a candidate that he knows is a conservative. He will not vote party line any more if he does not know the candidate nor will he vote for someone that has not demonstrated he walks the walk instead of talking the talk.

As far as my friend is concerned, the Republican party is dead. The death in committee of the restaurant carry, bill, the water intake bill, and probably the ETJ bill has killed it for him.

Sarkazein said...

The Court should have kicked it back to the House to re-name it as a tax and to put it up for vote as a tax.

Obama and Pelosi are celebrating their lie to the American public. There are videos and interviews showing their denial of Obamacare being a tax.. there is no escaping it. The Republicans fought hard against this bill including Legislators, Sates AGs, and Governors. ALL REPUBLICANS.
Some will fold to the Marxist thugs and some will continue the fight.

Deception

Sarkazein said...

Where were the Independants, the Bull Moosers, the Peroters, the Third Partiers? No where because they can't get themselves even elected. Thank you Republicans for the great effort.
This may be a better ruling against Obama's re election than if it was defeated in it's entirety.

guy faulkes said...

Sark, the Republican party probably has the support of more party liners such as you than they have opposition from people such as my friend and I. The question is whether there are enough of us to cost them elections and force them to return to their conservative base.

If the Republicans are liberal lite, who cares which party wins? I do not as the end result will be the same.

Sarkazein said...

Guy Faulkes- Democrats for Obamacaretax

Republicans against Obamacaretax


Republicans to vote to repeal, Democrats to vote against repeal.

Bullmoosers... honking in the wilderness. Just like the sound of a falling tree.

guy faulkes said...

I do not think so, Sark. Romney created the model that inspired Obamacare. Some Republicans will vote to repeal. Party line followers will give lip service to repeal but approve of Romney's identical replacement bill when it is introduced.

Sarkazein said...

On his first day he said he would start the repeal of Obamacaretax... and replace it with the same thing? To what end?

guy faulkes said...

I do not know. Why did he develop Romney care in the first place? All I know is he is a fan of socialized medicine , and taxes to support it.

Sarkazein said...

An opinion of the difference

Sarkazein said...

The US needs a problem solver as President because of the deficit and debt, not an ideologue. Romney is, if nothing else, a problem solver.

Sarkazein said...

We need the ideologues in the House and the Senate with a clear majority.

Sarkazein said...

Texas and other states may have brown outs during high electrical demand (as we dash toward third world status). Obama tries to slow down the coal mining for the power and then wants you to buy electric cars that have to be plugged in and recharged every 40 miles or so.

Listen to Stretch talk down to her dummies.

If you can stomach THIS, watch a tub of goo admit to incrementalism and the Socialist take-over of our country by liars and thieves.

Sarkazein said...

Per Wiki answers 66,882,230 individual votes elected Obama out of a total of 125,225,901 votes casted. At the time of the election there was a total of 213,005,467 actual eligible voters...hence 87,779,556 eligible voters chose NOT to vote. The issues of "people" voting multiple times, dead people voting and UNCOUNTED votes have all been totally dismissed.

On this July 4th we are four months from our decision process for a new President. For the last three years I have challenged those in support of Obama to tell me what he has done for the good of the American citizen. I have been fully prepared to debate why their belief is wrong - no one took up my challenge. Many have listed Obama's "accomplishments" but actual dialog has not taken place, nor was there consideration that many of these "accomplishments" were based on actions began by previous Presidents. Regardless this November every American citizen has an opportunity to either reelect Obama or elect someone else. If you are unhappy with the decisions Obama has made YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE IT. If you choose NOT to vote in November then you have no voice - and in my opinion no RIGHT - to complain about whatever happens over the next four years.

I have heard many people say they will not vote for Obama and they will not vote for a Republican. I have a rational thought to share with you. I was very excited when the "Tea Party" started to grow simply based on issues FOR THE PEOPLE - but given four years to build a true platform that can challenge the core Democrat and Republican parties they have failed. Even on Facebook the largest Tea Party group (Tea Party Patriots) had only 856,880 members at the time of this writing. Who will be elected or reelected in November will be by the majority of Electoral votes that reach or exceed 270. (The Electoral College should be stripped of the ability to cast a vote that does not reflect the popular vote of the individual state.) Given what I have said in this paragraph here is where I will undoubtedly upset many of my readers: In this November election if you choose not to vote Democrat or Republican you are throwing your vote away as any other "party" isn't strong enough to bring in the votes.- Bertman Plummer

Being true to your ideals is not throwing away anything. It is supporting what you beleive in the face of pressure from those of less fortitude.

I heard a story from a top Texas official in law enforcement. This story is about the LA bank robbers who were heavily armed and covered with body armor. This was the big shoot out with the LA cops. Remember the cops were out gunned and some cops went into a gun store to get heavier weapons and ammo to engage the bank robbers. Within a week, the ATF arrested all the involved employees of the store for not making the cops fill out the yellow form. I have no reason not to believe this man because of who he is. The charges were eventually dropped.

Sarkazein said...

The story is out now about the US Attorney who approved Fast&Furious, was/is a big advocate for banning "assault" weapons. He was the head guy in the Clinton administration responsible for that ban.
More and more PROOF is coming out that Fast&Furious was a political scam to gain public support for more gun control and the UN Small Arms Treaty. People died. And more to come. The fish rots from the head down. The cover up is on, because of the intent.

guy faulkes said...

You are exactly right Sark. Even those such as Bill O'Riley claim this is merely a conspiracy theory. The problem is that the conspiracy has a very good chance of being factual.

Maybe the truth will emerge if an honest judge hears the civil contempt case.

NewGuy said...

I don't believe in "conspiracy theories". I think that they are just something a group of people got together and made up in an effort to mess with our heads.

Apparently, one of the West Palm Beach Democrats who couldn't figure out the "butterfly" ballot in the 2000 presidential election, found a career as a Democrat legislator in NC.

Unfortunately, the 2 button system (YAY or NAY)used to vote in the state house was also a bit too complicated for her.
