    More guns AND more jobs for Americans, what's not to love?

    They're going to outsource gun production to China eventually

    American gun enthusiasts would riot. And I wouldn't blame them.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yes, because America is hurting so bad . . .

    The end of month trailing off of sales volume is worsening.

    I just went to grocery store, and prices are going up... when supply starts to drop, usually the price drops. This isn't the way it's working though.

    You've got it backwards SW. Prices decrease if demand decreases, or if supply increases.

    You're right... And I also meant to say demand. Demand is dropping, not supply.

    False. I am a liberal and I'm very pro-gun.
