    I think it's silly. I think it's stupid. I think it actually harms the purpose of the organization, in a minor way. It harms because it clues people in that many of the members on paper are not necessarily active and passionate about the cause, but just "paper members", which weakens the image of any organization, IMO. Other than that, which I admit is minor, it is also more or less harmless.

    Having said that, I'd prefer that people who belong to organizations actually be thinking reasoning adults who honestly believe in the cause. Plus, if his daughter does grow up and wants to join, she should get the satisfaction of joining on her own, not because mommy and/or daddy did it for her when she was too young to even give a rat's arse.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    At first, I was wondering if this was legit. Kind of funny at first. But seriously, what's wrong with Santorum? I knew he wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but signing up your child for an NRA membership?

    Oh well, not my kid and not my problem.

    I dont really care that he did it other than the fact that the guy can't take a ****ing break from whoring around. What is he even selling now? He reminds me of Wimp Lo from Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. I would shoot myself in the foot to hear him mutter, "I'm bleeding making me the victor."

    Rick Santorum is still a senator, really? Someone probably needs to tell him that. :

    Well I've been forced to participate in social security for life, and didn't get a say in that.

    I can't believe this story was worth six pages of commentary.....

    For the record: I do not like guns but do love the constitution so understand that guns are part of our society.
    I see your point, but this is a three year old. She doesn't need gun training and shouldn't be touching a gun at her age. This is just taking extreme measures to appeal to gun owners and gun enthusiasts.
