Thanks buddy! Been spending more time playing the guitar.

Bill, after your marathon effort in writing so many quizzes, you can be excused if those two qualities sometimes seem just out of reach.
bill 2017-10-15 01:37:02
Not only devoid of inspiration, Grant but also motivation!
grant228 2017-10-14 19:33:44
Bill, good to see you back. I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes is devoid of inspiration.

Hope everyone is well! Grant, thanks for the quiz on Churchill. I'm going to write a quiz tonight. What to write about?...

Deb, the Donald is the personification of your gun laws - the rest of the world can see the problem but a significant proportion of your citizens can't.

Our country can be great again once we get rid of The Orange One.

I got my acronym wrong. It should be N(onsensical) R(ifle) A(ddiction).
grant228 2017-10-09 20:57:10
Deb, I suppose we're guilty of being idealistic to think money doesn't do the talking. I was watching an interesting video on Facebook yesterday made by a Scandinavian group. The video was a mockumentary of the disease afflicting the US. It very amusingly recounted how N(ational) R(ifle) A(ddiction) is tearing apart your once great nation.

They're in bed with the NRA, no doubt in my mind. Politicians don't run this country, money does. We need some big changes. Both sides need work.
grant228 2017-10-07 19:43:48
Deb, I read that The New York Times quoted a figure that 92 Americans are killed each day because of guns! The article also said Americans kids are 14 times more likely to die from guns than any other developed nation. It sounds as if you have an undeclared war. One of my favourite films is "Dave" and I was watching it again a few days ago and a line resonated when the main character said there were a lot of things going wrong in the country but the worst aspect of all the problems was that the people felt they couldn't do anything about the problems. That pretty much sums up what is happening now as it appears the majority of people want to change things but politicians are dead scared of the NRA and its financial and political power.

Here's what makes me so angry. Owning guns is a constitutional right, but healthcare is a privilege? Shouldn't it be the other way around? When the 2nd amendment was written, there weren't automatic, or semi automatic guns even invented yet. I don't think that's what they had in mind! There was 1 gun, and 1 bullet!!
grant228 2017-10-05 18:51:39
Deb, I was reading yesterday that approximately 30 of your country's citizens die each day because of guns!? That's a public health and safety issue if caused by anything apart from the sacred guns would have authorities taking action to prevent. Your law makers should add a new amendment to your constitution- the right not to be shot.
phonerec 2017-10-05 02:59:22
The kit, and silencers should be outlawed, in my very humble opinion. But I favor some kind of gun control, so there you go.
dave 2017-10-03 17:42:44
Ah, now I get it. Thanks Deb
phonerec 2017-10-03 14:42:36
A fully automatic assault rifle (machine gun) is illegal... A KIT to turn a semi-automatic rifle into an automatic rifle IS legal... And, the kit to turn something into an illegal weapon usually costs only $50.00.
dave 2017-10-03 13:17:58
It's pretty bad, but I thought that automatic weapons (I.E. machine guns) were illegal??
grant228 2017-10-03 07:30:39
Deb, following a tragedy here in 1996 when a madman killed 35 people, our government took decisive action which meant such an abomination might never be repeated. From this side of the globe we've almost become inured to the atrocities committed by gun-wielders in your land. If the Sandy Hook tragedy didn't change things, I don't see what will. Your country's obession/affection for guns bewilders the rest of the world. Last week I was talking to an ex-student who is now a policeman. He was wearing a gun and I internally took a backward step as guns are such an alien concept out here. For the Las Vegas nutter to be able to stock his hotel room with such an arsenal indicates a national mindset that sees no problem with folks toting automatic weapons.
phonerec 2017-10-02 23:07:02
Man, can this day suck anymore? First I wake up to hear 58 people murdered in Las Vegas while enjoying a concert, then I hear of the death of Tom Petty. And my cell phone bit the dust!!! I'm going to bed and pull the covers over my head,,,,Not to be rude, but people keep saying "pray for the victims, pray for the families, but prayer alone isn't cutting it. We need to take action!!

Hello OJN1953 and LonestarJR. Thank you very much for the new quizzes. All were very nicely written. Your efforts are appreciated!
bill 2017-09-30 14:06:40
Thank you, Deb!
dave 2017-09-25 21:32:38
Got it Deb
phonerec 2017-09-24 03:01:50
Hey Bill, I hope you are feeling better!!

The phrase "Boomer Sooner" refers to the Land Run of 1889, in which the land around the modern university was settled. Boomers were people who campaigned for the lands to be opened (or tried to enter the lands) before passage of the Indian Appropriations Act of 1889. I had no idea, so I copied and pasted, LOL!
bill 2017-09-23 13:57:56
Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't chimed in lately. Hope all is well!
dave 2017-09-21 22:22:15
but Deb, why Boomer Sooners, Boomer Sooners?
grant228 2017-09-21 19:53:48
Deb, thanks for the lovely explanation. It is a clever appellation. I will file that one away in the recesses of the mind in case it's ever needed.
phonerec 2017-09-20 18:44:44
Thanks Dave! Grant, when Oklahoma was a new state, they what they call a land run where people could stake their claim to a piece of land and call it their own. There was a set day and time, but a lot of people did it early, therefore earning the title of Sooners. They did it too soon. One of our major colleges are called the Oklahoma Sooners. And there is absolutely no reason you would know that!!
