    Everyone in the White House keeps saying they're not spending any more. They're investing.

    Boy, that sounds much better.

    So if I want something I can't afford, should I just call it an investment and that will make it all better???

    I wanna buy some useless shit. I want to waste money like it grows on trees, but I wanna feel better about it. I'm sure glad the President thinks changing what it's called totally changes the meaning because I don't want to have to pay the bill. :eusa_angel:

    If I caught my husband buying another firearm and he told me he was 'investing' I would be all for it. :D You never know if you need a firearm or many firearms, especially the way this country is going. A firearm is not 'useless shit' to me. ;)

    However, I understand what you are saying about the Obama Administration. Changing the way they say it don't change the fact that they ARE spending. I guess this is the 'Change' Obama was referring to? :eusa_think:

    This is the way this Administration deals with their deceptions. They change what it's called to deceive us.

    Example: Terrorism is now called "Man-made Disaster". The War on Terror is now called "Overseas Contingency Operation".

    I would call irresponsible to buy more guns Unless you do not have a gun, when you just said you could not afford it. The only time I would say go for it is when you do not have a gun or you are stocking up on more food.

    Just my opinion.

    On behalf of licensed gun dealers all across the country, it is an excellent investment.

    Perhaps the best, smartest, and safest you could ever make.

    My wife gave up around gun #50 or so.

    You just have to push on through the pain, then it gets better :)

    Come on guys. Lets be real here. First, you must understand liberal talk. Translate it. I'll help.

    "Investing". To most of us, that means putting money into something that will pay off in the long term. Maybe not that fun now, but you'll be glad later you did. Like a home, or education.

    Liberal translation? When they dumb money into yet another gov't run section 8 ghetto craphole development, saying it's "Community investment". To the liberal, "investment" means dumping money into something that feels good, but has no chance of paying off in the long run.

    With liberals, it's always opposite day. "Invest" means instant gratification to them, as in they instantly feel warm and cozy for dumping money into a cause. Like investing in green tech. Sure, it's a waste, our economy will never run on it, but they feel so good doing it. Kinda like all the investment we made in section-8 housing in the 60's, and we see how much thats paid off.

    Buying another gun is a good thing, it will keep you occupied. "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." Mao Tse Tung

    come to bed honey
    i'll only be a little while
    but you've been cleaning those guns all evening
    they keep us safe dear
    but it's cold up here
    come to bed
    be up in a bit
    - ladder appears at window
    - wife looks up surprised
    - masked man puts his finger to lips
    my husband is downstairs and armed
    is he coming up soon
    nah cleaning his guns
    you look lonely
    i am
    - they talk
    - ruffling sheets
    honey what's all that noise up there
    nothing dear you clean your guns
    - quiet
    dear i'm coming to bed now
    - muffled reply
    - sotto voce
    oh she's sleeping so content
    - says to himself
    isn't it nice being secure
    - hugs his gun close
    - scene fades

    Yes, the power from a gun quote, a close Obama advisor also used that quote, saying "they" agree with that. Mmmm.
