My thoughts on crime and punishment, education, the disregard for the
Constitution that has occurred in the U.S.A., social-ist
security, personal responsibility, ... , and some good financial links
(take responsibility for YOUR OWN financial future) ...
General Links and Information
These links to various sites may be fun or useful (or both) for you or
other members of your family or friends:
Are you tired of the radical left liberals spreading lies and other
deceptions in order to pass onerous new laws, taxes, and "Social Programs"
that infringe on our FREEDOM? Are you tired of people who violate the
Constitution to create and perpetuate BIG GOVERNMENT? Are you tired of
"Political Correctness", "Hate Crimes", etc... ?
The only way those who want CONTROL and the naive 'sheeple' who
do their bidding can implement whatever plans they may have for us, our
country, and the world is for them to (1) control speech (which they're
doing by intimidation), and (2) control weapons (which they're doing -
illegally - by infringing on our right to self-defense). They want the
monopoly on force. That's why think think firearms are only OK for the
police and the military - which they hope to control.
How would you like to fight back? Don't believe for a second that we
can't. Do you remember what happened to Rosie O'Donnel and K-Mart? How
about CitiCorp and their "sudden change of policy"? Whether YOU
participated or not, understand that these results were due to the ACTIONS
of people like US.
Visit my Spirit of '76 FIGHT
BACK for the Constitution Page, and be sure to read the information
below about the NRA Foundation, NRA Credit Cards, Gunowners Foundation,
and changing your Telephone Long Distance company.
The NRA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity established to support
research, education, community service, and public safety programs of the
National Rifle Association of America, law enforcement agencies, and
community-based service organizations.
To make a contribution to The NRA Foundation, whether it be through
NRA's Major Donor Programs, FAIR$HARE, NRA Countertop Round-Up, NRA
Round-Up, Combined Federal Campaign, Corporate and Foundation Giving,
United Way, or the Heritage Society, please contact:
(press two when instructed)
OR go to their website
the NRA Foundation via e-mail
- contributions qualify for
Federal Income TTax deductions
The NRA Foundation Combined Federal
HIT THE RIGHT TARGET!
In many federal offices there are subtle (and sometimes not so subtle)
pressures to give to the Combined Federal Campaign. Your boss may think
his prestige depends upon getting everyone to kick in. The same thing
happens in all too many corporations during the United Way fund-raising
You may have wanted to give but couldn't find a group that wasn't
attacking your rights, let alone defending them, on the list of
participating organizations. But that has all changed!
Federal employees now are able to designate Gun Owners Foundation as
the recipient of their gifts to the Combined Federal Campaign. Use Agency
Number 1054 for Gun Owners Foundation when you make your Combined
Federal Campaign pledge or donation. Your gifts will go toward helping our
legal assistance program protect the Second Amendment rights of Americans
across the nation.
Also, if you work for a company that participates in the United Way,
you too, may be able to designate that your gift be sent to Gun Owners
Foundation. Many local United Way Campaigns allow Gun Owners Foundation to
participate through their Donor Choice Programs. Some, however, do not.
Check with your local United Way Agency. You will not only be helping
people and protecting your rights, but you will also get a tax deduction.
Of course, anyone can always make a tax-deductible donation at any time
to Gun Owners Foundation by sending the contribution directly to 8001
Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151.
One additional note. If you are employed by a corporation or
organization which has a Matching Gift Program, please keep GOF in mind
when making your donation. Thank you very much.
If you would like to help the NRA financially with no cost to yourself,
you should consider the NRA Credit Card Program as an alternative to your
present credit card. To apply for this card, which benefits the NRA
financially every time you use it, please call (800) 321-9416, or you can
apply on-line by going to http://www.nrahq.org/, then the site
called GIVE/JOIN/HELP, and then selecting Member Benefits & Special
Sprint, MCI, AT&T (donated $3 million to the anti-gun
"Coalition For Americaís Children", and have also donated thousands of
dollars to a number of anti-gun politicians; every election since 1990),
and Bell Atlantic-DC are all ANTI-gun companies. I think there are
more BIG companies in the long-distance business that are, too - but I
have no confirmation - so I will not say anything just yet. If anyone
knows of others, please e-mail them to me.
No matter what long distance company you use, YOUR MONEY will be
at work in the Bill of Rights debate. The question you must answer for
yourself is, "On which side of the debate will your money be used?"
It's up to you.
I switched my long distance service to LifeLine (http://www.lifeline.net/). They're
part of AmeriVision Communications. 10% of my monthly long distance
bill goes to GOA, per my request. You can designate one of a number of
conservative organizations, I believe, to receive money. They are
competitively priced (4%-8% under AT&T's standard tariff rates) - not
the lowest, I'm sure - but I don't care. I'd rather pay a little more to a
PRO company than less to a FREEDOM-SNATCHING one that will use my own
money to subvert the USA. To support the Bill of Rights, switch to
LifeLine - call 1-800-311-2811.
Here's another company that deserves your business. As I said above, I
switched my long distance service to LifeLine - but that was before I ever
heard of Marathon USA (http://www.marathoncom.com/makeacallforfreedom.html).
For Make a Call For Freedom and inquiries, please call 1-888-857-5070.
Marathon USA services two market segments: the pro-gun / pro-hunting
community and the general population of small businesses nationwide.
SPREAD THE WORD about Marathon USA to your hunting and shooting
partners. Marathon USA donates 15% of your long distance bill to
the pro-gun organization of your choice at no extra cost to you! Ask your
local gun store or sporting goods store why they arenít on Marathon USA?
Spread the word, the 15% donation to the pro-gun and pro-hunting
organizations is growing and growing each passing month. They are
getting stronger but need the support and commitment of the entire pro-gun
For more information on the AT&T subversion donation(s), the
Pro-gun movement, Marathon USA, or the Make a Call For Freedom plan - call
Here's a brand new Internet Service Provider (ISP) I came across while
reading one of my shooting / hunting magazines: OutDoors Unlimited Internet
Service. Unlike AOL, OutDoors Unlimited (1.877.922.4868) is 2nd
Amendment friendly. I don't use them ... yet ... but anybody with the guts
to fight the gun snatchers and the Politically Correct crowd
by openly supporting the U.S. Constitution is worth considering.
