Some of you may remember the movie Red Dawn produced in Hollywood in the eighties. The producer, John Milius, was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. The movie is about a invasion of the U.S. by the communists.
One of the great scenes is the communist commander telling his men to go to the gun shops and seize the Federal forms showing who owned firearms.
Another great scene is when the Wolverine leader sneaks into town where the men are imprisoned andhis father tells his boy to avenge them because they ,the elders, failed them.
In no way could such a movie be produced in modern Hollyweird with its anti gun and pro communist or big government philosophy .

They made a remake of Red Dawn I hear a few years vago but I hear it was a joke and nothing like the original. Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood probably are the only two decent producers left in that place.
Wolverines!

The original "Red Dawn", with the original ending was one of the most prophetic movies ever produced. (I put the movie "Idiocracy" in this category). I'm of the opinion that the armed citizenry is one of our greatest deterrents to invasion by any country. Russia and China both have to know that an invasion force would be met first by our military. Then, after suffering great losses they would face individuals who would take up arms to protect the property they own. These are the same people who sing the national anthem with pride. "The land of the free and the home of the brave". And....and all of the gun hating lefties who think it's ok to take a knee during our sacred anthem will be banging on our doors begging for safe refuge. If that day comes I hope I have some shred of compassion left. The best way I can describe how I feel currently...I watched zero football this last Sunday, and I love watching football.

I have a dream.That fans boycott that watered down football league ( rules changed game years ago into a joke) which also mocks the flag that men died under since the beginning of this nation.

Let those dirtball players go make a real living making 40 thousand a year and owners lose all their teams which the stupid taxpayers fund with TAXES
collected for massive stadiums all across this nation.Wake up people and tell NFL to go jump in the river and drown.
Wolverines!

I'd bet that most of them would have a real tough time finding a job that would pay them $40K/year. But after 90 days behind the counter at Circle K, they could make $30K if they worked full time as (at least here in Az) Circle K now pays $15/hr after probationary period. And THAT's about twice what any of these pathetic excuses in the NFL are worth.

If they don't bring something to the table that I need, like being a doctor with a boatload of meds and supplies, they will be shown no mercy. You make your bed, lie in it.
