    Fine. Think what you like. You will anyway. But unlike you, I've actually met
    Bowser. He and I spent several hours on a photo shoot, prowling the city where
    I work. And he's not at all the way you describe him.

    As I recall, Bowser worked his way through college as a photographer. He was a
    regular contributor to the Shoot-In and served a couple of terms running it.
    Have we ever seen any of your work?

    That was Nevada, not Montana. And the reason it worked was because in those
    days you could drive for miles without seeing another car. I forgive you for
    not knowing that, because a) it was probably before you were born and b) I
    doubt you could identify either state on an unannotated map.

    Well, yes, except I've read that the phrase "without mass carnage" didn't
    always apply on the Autobahns.

    It was Montana. They had no speed limits and the Federal government, of
    course, had to stick their nose in it and give them a choice - enact a speed
    limit or no highway funding. So, they did enact a speed limit along with a
    fine of $5.00 and no points.

    You cannot have it both ways. The State had a choice, and made its
    decision. I give money to the Salvation Army because I believe they do
    a lot of good for a lot of people. I also give to other organizations,
    because I want to help encourage their activities. If somehow the Tea
    Party changed its views, I certainly would help them financially. I have
    not taken a survey, but I think there are hundreds of thousands of
    moderates who would give the Tea Party money, if they changed their views.

    BTW: I do not understand how you can support a political party that
    advocates invasion of privacy. Condoning video taping an opposing
    candidate's wife in a hospice is nothing short of obscene.

    For the sake of accuracy, the Tea Party is not a political party. It is
    loosely organized. As I mentioned in an earlier post, do not judge us all
    by the actions of one idiot who had the nerve to do that. It's bigots who
    judge a whole group of people by the actions of one or a few. You cannot
    lay the charge that Tea Party members condone invading someone's privacy
    because one person engaged in it. Does the Democratic Party condone racism
    because a racist like Al Sharpton supports the party? You know better than
    that.

    Except the Candidate on whose behalf that idiocy was performed appeared
    to condone that action.

    I really brought up the Tea Party, because it has held the Republican
    Party hostage to its agenda. e.g. sequester. Need we really get into
    some of their antics.

    : OK, you win. I'm buying during the next walkabout in Boston, or
    : whever. :) I'm due for a trip to the big city.

    After yet another photo shoot where I had to use my crappy old 50-150 lens
    because the City's 70-200 was too long for the job, I'm on the point of
    braking down and buying a 5D3. (I already have the 24-105 f/4 walking around
    lens it requires.) So if/when I pull the trigger, I'll obviously have to take
    it out for a break-in walk. I'll let you know. ;^)

    I'm a staunch conservative. If you don't disagree with me on something, I
    wouldn't consider you normal and the same standard applies to me. If we can
    agree on a majority of issues, then we are in the same camp. I'll never
    agree 100% with anyone and neither will you and that's perfectly fine. What
    I refuse to do is pick my friends based on whether we agree politically.
    That would be foolish. Before we were laid off a couple of years ago, the
    one co-worker I got along with best is completely on the other side
    politically. Were still in touch on a regular basis and get along as well
    as we ever did. I tell him he's my favorite Commie. What we have most in
    common is that we treat people with the compassion and respect we wish to be
    treated with.

    Someone might convince me of the gun grab. What the administration is doing
    is unprecedented. Pressuring banks to not provide service to gun dealers?
    They would strictly reduce our 2nd amendment rights if they could, I do
    believe that. Some of the avalanche projected towards the President is
    well-deserved - the IRS scandal, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the embarrassment
    of Obamacare. He's disattached, he's not a leader. When have you ever
    heard a president try to blame so much on a previous one? He's is not up to
    the job.

    First, one has to accept that the Second Amendment was written with
    the concept in mind that rights accorded in the Amendment are the
    rights that the NRA is so staunchly defending.

    Not all of us accept this.

    Second, one has to accept that something written in the 1700s should
    be maintained in effect in a completely different society that the
    society that existed at the time.

    The Constitution, and the Amendments, have been revised many times
    since then, but the Second Amendment seems to be bullet-proof against
    change.

    Not all of us accept this, either.

    One of my old friends, whom I hadn't seen in a while, is into sports/action
    photography, and he's the one who convinced me I needed a 5D3. I did order it,
    and it's *supposed* to be here tomorrow, one day before we leave for my 55th
    college reunion. So I'm hoping to be able to try it out there.

    If you decide to go Canon, you'll presumably get either a 5D3 or a 7D. I'll
    have both, so if we get a chance to do a walk before you decide, you can see
    which one you like better. (IIRC, your previous Canon was a 5D2.)

    I'd be fine with that if it also mandated that a militia exist and that
    its members be forbidden to swear loyalty to the Federal government.

    Regardless, there is a procedure for amending the Constitution. If gun
    control advocates want it amended they are welcome to try to sell that
    idea to enough of the public to get it amended.

    You want a militia that has no allegiance to the federal government?

    Who would have the power to mandate such a militia? Since no
    government would form a militia that has no allegiance to the
    government that forms it, what you suggest is a ridiculous notion.

    The only way a militia without allegiance to a government can be
    formed is for a group of citizens to self-mandate their existence, and
    that cannot be coupled with a constitutional change.

    You confuse the "public" with "Congress". Constitutional change is
    effected by an amendment proposed by Congress as stated in Article V
    of the Constitution.

    http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/constitution/article-v.html

    Congress, especially the Senate, has not evidenced any interest in
    what the people want in this, and several other, issues.
