Bank of America now has Anti-Gun Policy and Political Agenda
Some speculate that it's because of its close ties to the Obama White House. Some say it's because they want to get on the good side of the Obama administration in their second term. Some believe that Bank of America's last bailout was bigger than ever, and they may need another.
For whichever reason, Bank of America now has an Anti-Gun Political Agenda.
Case and point, the new Bank of America Anti-Gun Policy was revealed recently when the McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing and McMillan Group International - who have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years - were told by Bank of America to take their business somewhere else!
The reason: It is an American firearms manufacturer.
That's right, Bank of America is now joining the Anti-Gun Lobby with a Political Agenda in place. And yes, they have started by telling firearms companies that their business is no longer welcome.
Though, according to Operations Director Kelly McMillan, his company has never been late on a payment and has never bounced a check - and the debt outstanding on its line of credit is at 61 percent - at Bank of America's request, the McMillan group of companies would soon be paying off its credit line and closing its accounts.
On Facebook, McMillan described a meeting at his office with Ray Fox, a Bank of America Business Banking Senior Vice President. What was originally scheduled as an "account analysis" meeting, quickly became a political brawl.
Kelly McMillan, said that the Bank of America Vice President "spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and have become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories."
"At this point I interrupted him," McMillan said, and asked, "Can I possibly save you some time so that you don’t waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that because we are in the firearms manufacturing business - you no longer what my business."
Bank of America Business Banking Senior Vice President simply replied, "That is correct."
McMillan said he now plans to move his company’s account to "a more Second Amendment-friendly bank" as soon as it can be done.
He recalls telling the Bank of America executive that he planned to tell the National Rifle Association, Safari Club International, and his other gun-loving friends "that Bank of America is not firearms-industry-friendly."
"You have to do what you must" was the Bank of America representative's reply, then said. "We have to assess the risk of doing business with a firearms related industry."
The McMillan group of companies may have the last laugh: It is considering no longer accepting Bank of America credit cards for purchases.
As for me, I will boycott Bank of America and every other company that is Anti-Second Amendment. To me, being Anti-Gun is being Anti-Second Amendment - and being Anti-Second Amendment is Anti-American at it worse.
Because of that, I'm letting as many friends and relatives know about this. So far, my wife and friends who have an account with Bank of America have said that they are now considering closing their accounts.
I recommend every American boycott Bank of America, and any other companies that does not support the Constitution or the rights of American citizens.
I absolutely refuse to do business with companies like Bank of America who refuse to do business with American firearms manufacturers - and subsequently American citizens who exercise our rights under the United States Constitution to keep and bear arms.
I refuse to do business with anyone or any company who has joined the Anti-Second Amendment movement.
Whether I boycott the movies of Hollywood types who are part of the Anti-Gun Agenda, or I boycott corporations who have joined the Anti-Gun ilk, I do not want to give a single dime to those who want to take away my rights.
That's just the way I am!
Grandma Kicks Butt In Shootout!
Police in Georgia say a grandmother foiled a robbery attempt by two armed men by getting into a shootout with them, injuring one man.
Lulu Campbell just dropped off her grandson at her daughter's house early Saturday morning when someone demanded money outside her car, the whole time threatening to shoot her. Then, believe it or not, Campbell says the man shot at her - but missed!
Bad move on the assailant's part because the 57-year-old Grandma fired back - striking him in the chest.
Her truck sustained eight bullet holes in the hood, one in the grill. Both front side windows were also destroyed.
The second man fled after she shot at him. Campbell, who owns convenience stores and gas stations, is always armed.
Police say 32 year old Brenton Lance Spencer has been hospitalized and was charged with aggravated assault and attempted armed robbery.
Lulu Campbell is reported to have said she'd do it again if messed with!
This old gal is someone who I can definitely respect. She's does the job that needs to get done!
Jon Stewart's Anti-Christian Attitude Is No Joke
A writer recently penned:
"The Daily Show starring Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report starring Stephen Colbert, presents young people with a false, cynical view of important political, cultural, and religious issues and events of the day. Stewart, Colbert, and their writers use ridicule, sarcastic cynicism, and sometimes even obscenity to mock their more conservative political and cultural opponents, including traditional Christianity and Christian leaders."
He couldn't be more right!
Media Research Center (MRC), a media watchdog group, is challenging political satirist Jon Stewart to be an "equal opportunity bigot."
Stewart offended millions of American Christians by placing the Nativity across female genitals in a picture shown on his show. The Daily Show host Jon Stewart ran the lewd photo of a woman with the Nativity scene because he was trying to make some sick political point about Christians and Conservatives.
In response, Media Research Center (MRC) president Brent Bozell went on Twitter to dare Stewart to desecrate either the Koran or the Torah in the same way that he offended millions of Christians by using the Nativity scene in such a crude fashion.
The MRC's Dan Gainor asserts that his group is certainly not for the desecration of any faith, but says Bozell's challenge was made knowing that Stewart's type of comedy applies only to anti-Christian bigotry.
"This is classic Jon Stewart: will attack Christians, will make fun of something that's Christian," Gainor offers. "And then you look at that network - Comedy Central is one that has run and hid from possibly even vaguely offending Muslims."
Gainor believes the liberal media's attacks on Christians during the early part of 2012 have been unprecedented. "Just this year has probably been the worst, most anti-Christian year in media I think quite possibly ever," he decides.
Yes it's happening, and it seems to be getting worse every time I look at what's being reported in today's news.
U.S. has 26% of World Oil Supply
The report said that Republican Senators are accusing President Obama of pushing a "less-than-honest" claim about the scarcity of domestic oil, after a U.S. Geological Survey study showed the United States might actually hold a quarter of the world's untapped oil supply.
Obama enjoys using a much different statistic in speeches.
He said recently, as he has before, that the problem is we use more than 20 percent of the world's oil and we only have 2 percent of the world's oil reserves.
That is a lie!
A new U.S. Geological Survey just released paints a seemingly different picture. The analysis showed the world outside of the U.S. holds 565 billion barrels of undiscovered conventional oil - it was the first such study in 12 years.
The study did not address U.S. resources, but a prior analysis by the Energy Information Administration pegged the country's supply at 198 billion barrels. That works out to 26 percent of the world supply.
Sens. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, say "the 2 percent stat is becoming obsolete."
"Well, there goes President Obama's favorite talking point," Inhofe said in a statement.
"The president's own administration has released a report which reveals that the United States has 26 percent of the world's technically recoverable conventional oil resources, and that's not including our enormous oil shale, tight oil and heavy oil resources. This report from the U.S. Geological Survey is vindication for anyone who thought that President Obama's claims - are less than honest."
"President Obama's claims are less than honest" is the way politicians say "Obama is lying again!"
Kansas City Homeowners Fight Back ... With Guns!
A report out of Kansas City, Missouri, recently talked about there being two Home Invasions in three days. Now some homeowners in the area are fed up with the violence and lack of respect. They are now fighting back.
On April 9th, a Kansas City woman, who was scared for her life, shot and killed a 17-year-old armed intruder. She says he forced his way inside her home near 58th and Garfield, pointed a gun at her head and put her in a closet.
The young man died Monday afternoon after a woman says she shot him in self-defense after he put a gun to her head and locked her in a closet.
Police say two young men, in their teens knocked on the woman’s door and asked to see a man. When the woman at the house in the 5800 block of Garfield told the men he wasn’t there, police say the men forced their way in, pointed a gun at the woman’s head, and put her in a closet.
While they rummaged through her house, the woman, who is in her 20s says she found the gun that she hides in the closet. She stepped out of the closet and shot one of the men. He stumbled out of the house, into the yard, and collapsed in the front yard, where a neighbor found him.
Police have identified the young man as 17-year-old Trevor Garms of Kansas City, Missouri.
"There was some bloody clothes and he was just shakin’ terribly shaking," said Liz Randle. "And I said, 'Oh. He done got shot,' and his clothes - they came down below his waist - and he was really, really looking awfully bad."
The woman told police the other man, who was dressed in an orange shirt, ran from the scene.
Police say charges are not likely since it appears the woman acted in self-defense.
"Uh yeah. I'd have got him. He come up on your house, he deserve to get shot," said Albert Jordan, another neighbor.
Early Wednesday morning, a similar frightening situation, in Raytown.
Police say two men, one armed with a rifle, the other with a handgun, burst inside a couple’s home and demanded money - then asked for a man, who didn’t live there.
When the home invaders ran before cops arrived, the male homeowner, fired shots at the fleeing pair, who got away. It’s not known if either man was hit. Police are still looking for both men.
"We’re very fed up," said neighborhood watch Captain Dayna Schroeder. "We constantly watch. We take note of whose around."
Schroeder put a mini-surveillance camera in her front yard to watch out for the bad guys.
Back in the Kansas City neighborhood, where the woman says she shot the young intruder in self-defense, Michelle Robinson, a mother of four your children, says she'd pull a pistol to protect her family.
"We're tired of the violence. We're tired of the violence. We're tired of the killings. We're tired of the break-ins, things have got to change," she said.
And yes, it sounds like they're bringing in change by standing up for themselves - and with gun in hand if need be!
Why isn't the beating of a White American at the hands of a Black American considered a "Hate Crime"?
Police have arrested Terry Rawls in the beating of a Matthew Owens. It is a case with very little interest on the side of the News Media because it is a White-Alabama, a Ccaucasin- American, being beaten by a mob of Black-Americans, African-Americans.
It took place after Owens told a group of Black teenagers to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive. This is according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department.
After the teenagers left the area, a group of angry Black adults armed with weapons including baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons returned and confronted Owens in his front yard - where upon he was attacked and beaten with the intent to kill him.
Matthew Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG that she witnessed the attack and that there were as many as 20 Black assailants. Parker said she overheard one of them say, "Now that's justice for Trayvon."
Of course the Trayvon comment is about Trayvon Martin, who was the 17 year old who attacked a Neighborhood Watch Captain George Zimmerman for no apparent reason.
Zimmerman who found himself overpowered by the younger taller youth felt he was in mortal danger when Trayvon Martin was slamming his head into the concrete sidewalk. Zimmerman used deadly force to defend himself and killed his attacker by shooting him.
After a political firestorm fueled by liberal activist, false reports on NBC and other new outlets, Black politicians, Black civil rights activists, and Black-supremacist, seized the tragic event to use it as an opportunity to agitate hatred for whites.
George Zimmerman, who has received death threats and has had a $10,000 Bounty placed on his head by the militant group The New Black Panthers, was charged with second-degree murder in Martin's death.
Zimmerman has made bail, but because he fears for his life - has now had to go into hiding as he awaits his trial.
Black-Americans have already called for Zimmerman's conviction, and some see no satisfactory conviction of Zimmerman as nothing but an excuse that the Black community will need to riot and destroy whole neighborhoods that they live in. Simply because they see anything other then a death penalty conviction as another sign of "racism" in the justice system.
As ridiculous as it sounds, Police Departments across the nation have voiced concern that riots will take place like those that occurred after the O.J.Simpson trial - if anything less than a death penalty conviction for Zimmerman is had.
Beautiful Sofia Vergara refused entry into New York City Nightclub
Years ago, when I was trying to learn Spanish, I used to watch a some of the shows on Univisión - the Spanish language television network.
It was the mid-1990s, and that was when I first saw the very beautiful, very funny, Sofia Vergara.
From 1995 to 1998, she co-hosts along with Fernando Fiore of Fuera de serie ("Out of the Ordinary" or "Over-the-Top"), a travel series that sent her to exotic places around the world. It was telecast on the international Univisión Spanish-language television network, and it made her a star in the Latin American market.
It also gave Vergara television exposure in the United States via the Univisión stations here. She co-hosted the Univisión show A que no te atreves ("I Dare You"), and she appeared as a guest star in the season-four opening of the HBO series Entourage.
Besides being one of the most attractive women in entertainment today, she is known for her hard work drive and determination to succeed - attributes that all Americans should admire and respect.
She has been a wonderful addition to American television. She reminds me of a Latin version of Lucille Ball because her comedic timing is just perfect. With her expressions and messing around with the English language in the same way that Desi Arnaz used to do so back in the 50's on I Love Lucy with his Latina accent - Sofia is wonderful. She's a hoot!
Sofia Vergara was voted #1 on AskMen.com's Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2012 List.
AskMen.com did ask the question, "Why is Sofia Vergara #1?
Their reply, "When it comes to Colombian imports, none are more in demand than Sofia Vergara these days. The jaw-dropping Modern Family star is one of our favorite things about one of our favorite comedies. Vergara shows off the best cleavage on network TV, and we've never been more jealous of Ed O'Neill. But despite her obvious assets, Vergara's also one very funny woman, lampooning stereotypes with her perfect timing."
So yes, I could hardly believe it when I'd heard that the very beautiful actress Sofia Vergara was refused entry into a New York nightclub all because she did not have an identification to prove that she was indeed 21 years of age.
|This is my favoite picture of Sofia: She is simply stunning!|
Since she is 39 years old, I guess her being carded was a sort of compliment - if it was weren't for the fact that it became a real problem that ended up with her leaving after being kept out of a party with friends.
And to make matters worse, he wouldn't take the word of others there.
The very beautiful 39-year-old Sofia was stopped by the Doorman on her way into an after show party for the opening night of the Broadway musical Ghost: the Musical.
The actress, who recently hosted Saturday Night Live, was asked to show some form of ID to prove she was aged over 21. When she explained that she did not have any with her, the Doorman refused to allow her into the Ava Lounge at the Dream Midtown Hotel in New York.
A friend is reported to have pleaded with the Doorman, even asking him, "Please. You know who this is, right?" But no dice, the Doorman shook his head and refused to allow her into the party.
Back in the stone ages when I was doing security work, I remember dealing with event and clubs that had celebrities and sports figures show up. Usually, we had a list of the who's who that might show up. We knew that we were the face of the event or club because we were the first people that our guests met when they arrived.
In all the years of doing security work, at all of the different levels of security, it never ceased to amaze me how the small bit of information would help me do my job.
Knowing that he'd be dealing with celebrities, I think that Doorman should have spent a little less time in the gym and more time doing his homework. Fact is, some celebrities just aren't as nice as Sofia Vergara. Some will raise a Hell and work their damnedest to get you fired.
But I don't think the Doorman at the Ava Lounge at the Dream Midtown Hotel in New York will really have to worry about that in the future - he probably won't be working around celebs again.
