Look around you.
Kids are going to school, people making coffee, going off to work, mowing their lawns.
People are happy and honest, helpful and law abiding.
IGNORE THAT REALITY. Please substitute that reality for this video.
Eat up the lies and poop out the fear and paranoia.
Because the best America is one in which we are all angry porcupines, quills out, and terrified.
But to for this happen, you must IGNORE the REALITY of your life and substitute your actual day to day experience with this video.
This ad tell us that "It takes a special kind of courage to reject the world that is around you."
Oh, and that "5 million member" line at the end? Complete bullshit.
The real membership of the NRA is less than half this. We know because the NRA mails their magazine to every member, and their circulation is audited by the Alliance for Audited Media. And guess what? A lot of those 1 million "life members" that the NRA claims that are actually dead. Or, as former NRA board member David Gross has noted, "There just isn't that much incentive to go find out when someone passes away, not when the cost of maintaining (a dead member) is minimal and when they add to your membership list."
Right. Liar, liar, pants on fire.
NRA membership is rarely presented against any kind of scale, so let me do that.
AARP mails their publication to over 22 million people.
Game Informer (a video game magazine) mails to 7.8 million people.
Prevention magazine mails to 2.8 million people.
In a country in which 14.6 million people hunt, more than 83 percent of those people are NOT NRA members, and many NRA members are not hunters at all, but testosterone-depleted Walter Mitty types.
But set that aside.
Consider the fact that in their introductory video, one of the first things the NRA does is lie to us about itself.
NRA and PETA and HSUS are all one and the same -- direct mail liars for hire. Kick them all to the curb.
