    Actually,enforcing the law against criminals is simply reality despite your hyper dramatic hyperbole.
    You know you said it, I know you said it. Just because I don't want to waste my time to find the exact quote of errant bull**** you spew doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    Government engaging in confiscation of weapons that are legal under the constitution is a government that has abdicated their oaths.

    The government will never confiscate gold. All you people who predict the confiscation of gold are exhibiting hyper dramatic hyperbole.

    So it should be easy for you to quote it the. You will not because that is not my position and never has been my position.

    You are engaging in deliberate falsehoods designed to defame others and slur them. Such tactics are disgusting and shamefully disgraceful.

    You are in the wrong forum. This is not about the gold standard.

    Right. The government will never do anything unexpected. Like, they will never confiscate guns like they confiscated gold.

    Yesterday, Mr. Opportunity quite adamantly explained that he never implied unattractive characteristics to people. No, sir. He was not into implying. That was just peoples' misinterpretation. Today he seems again to find himself needing to explain that he wasn't "implying".

    Too funny!!!!!

    I have no idea what you are talking about as you FAILED to provide any evidence.
