WASHINGTON (CNN) — Bernie Conatser has never seen business this good.

Bernie Conatser, owner of Virginia Arms Company, displays one of his rifles.

The owner of a gun shop in the Washington suburb of Manassas, Virginia, Conatser said sales have doubled or tripled since this time last year.

On Saturday, he said, he did as much business as he would normally do in a week.

“I have been in business for 12 years, and I was here for Y2K, September 11, Katrina,” Conatser said, as a steady stream of customers browsed what remained of his stock. “And all of those were big events, and we did notice a spike in business, but nothing on the order of what we are seeing right now.”

Weapons dealers in much of the United States are reporting sharply higher sales since Barack Obama won the presidency a week ago.

Buyers and sellers attribute the surge to worries that Obama and a Democratic-controlled Congress will move to restrict firearm ownership, despite the insistence of campaign aides that the president-elect supports gun rights and considers the issue a low priority.

According to FBI figures for the week of November 3 to 9, the bureau received more than 374,000 requests for background checks on gun purchasers — a nearly 49 percent increase over the same period in 2007. Conatser said his store, Virginia Arms Company, has run out of some models — such as the AR-15 rifle, the civilian version of the military’s M-16 — and is running low on others.

Such assault weapons are among the firearms that gun dealers and customers say they fear Obama will hit with new restrictions, or even take off the market.

Virginia gun owner Kyle Lewandowski said he was buying a .45-caliber pistol to “hedge my bets.”

“Every election year, you have to worry about your rights being eroded a little bit at a time,” he said. “I also knew, because of the Democrat majority and because of the election, everybody would have the same reaction I did,” he added.

But Peter Hamm, a spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, called the buying spree “goofy.” He said widespread talk of banning guns is a “sales pitch.”

“With the glacial speed that we make progress on sensible gun laws, savvy gun consumers should know better than to think they have to rush out and buy guns,” Hamm said. Similar surges accompanied the election of Bill Clinton, the last Democratic president, he added.

Dealers in Colorado, Ohio, Connecticut and New Hampshire also reported seeing major increases.

“It’s a fact that the liberal Democrats that now control all three branches of our government do not like guns. They want us out of business,” Connecticut resident Scott Hoffman said. “They don’t want the average American to have a right to defend themselves.”

And New Hampshire gun owner Lloyd Clement said, “I think there’s going to be an attack to some degree on the gun owners.”

The Clinton administration imposed a ban on several types of military-style semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines in 1994, but that ban was allowed to lapse in 2004. Obama has proposed restoring the ban, requiring background checks for buyers at gun shows, and other “common-sense measures.”

He has said he supports the rights of local governments to set their own gun laws, but believes the Second Amendment to the Constitution protects individual gun rights.

“I believe the Second Amendment means something. I do think it speaks to an individual right,” Obama said in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in February.

With the U.S. economy in a tailspin, however, the president-elect’s advisers say gun legislation is not a high priority.

“What people do is their own business, and if they decide to go out and buy guns they’ll go out and buy guns, assuming that they are eligible to buy guns,” John Podesta, the co-chairman of Obama’s transition team, told reporters Sunday. “But I think that President-elect Obama has been clear in his campaign that what he wants to focus on is the economy, trying to get jobs growing again, dealing with the health care crisis, and dealing with our dependence on foreign oil.”

Some customers are stocking up specifically on ammunition and point to concerns raised by the National Rifle Association, which ran anti-Obama ads during the campaign.

The NRA said Obama would support a “huge new tax on my guns and ammo,” referencing a 1999 article in a Chicago newspaper saying the then-Illinois state senator promoted a plan to increase federal taxes by 500 percent on the sales of firearms and ammunition.

But as a state legislator, Obama would not have had any control over federal taxes. And as a U.S. senator and presidential candidate, he has not introduced or promoted such a proposal.

“I don’t really believe it is fear. It is more there is just uncertainty,” said Virginia customer David Reynolds, who was buying ammunition in the store as well as ordering more online.

“You know, we don’t really know what is going on,” he said. “There really hasn’t been a lot of clear direction on where he supports it, although he says he supports the Second Amendment. But it just remains to be seen. I think some people are just uncomfortable with what his policy may be.”

რატომ არ ვაძლევ ხმას დემოკრატებს და არასდროს მივცემ!

დაწყებული 1860-იანი  წლებიდან, ეს პარტია კუკლუსკლანს მფარველობდა, თეთრების უპირატესობაზე ღაღადებდა და ზანგების წინააღდეგ არანაირ ძალადობას არ თაკილობდა.

დღეს ერთ ამბავში არიან, ტრამპმა როგორ არ დაგმო კუკლუსკლანი. მთელი დემოკრატიული საარჩევნო კომპანია დღეს ზანგების და მექსიკელების გულის მოგებისკენაა მიმართული და ვიღან დაეძებს თეთრკანიანებს, რომლებიც დღს-დღობით ამერიკაში ლამისაა უმცირესობას წარმოადგენენ.

მოკლედ მედროვე დემოკრატები ყველა ხვრელს მოერგებიან და არაფერს ითაკილებენ ოღონდ მთავრობაში მოვიდნენ!

რატომ არ ვაძლებ ხმას ჰილარი კლინტონს?

 

გარდა იმისა რომ ოცდათორმეტი ათასი (32,000) იმეილი წაშალა, რამეთუ  ჩათვალა რომ კერძო იმეილები იყო და საზოგადოებას არაფერი ესაქმებოდა მათთან?

ჩემი აზრით ეს უკვე საკმარისზე მეტია.

მაგრამ კიდევ უფრო საშიში ისაა, რომ დაინიშნა თუ არა სახელმწიფო მდივნად, მაშინვე, დროის დაუკარგავად, დაამონტაჯა კერძო იმეილების სერვერი რომელსაც სახელმწიფო სამსახურთან არანაირი კავშირი არ უნდა ქონოდადა ემსახურებოდა მისი ოჯახის კერძო მიმოწერას. (ამას უნდა მომსახურებოდა ყოველი შემთხვევისათვის).

2015 წელს გაირკვა რომ ეს კერძო სერვერი არა მარტო მის ოჯახს ემსახურებოდა. კლინტონი იყენებდა კერძო სერვერს მის სამსახურებრივ საქმიანობაში.

კიდევ უარესი, როცა გამოძიება აღიძრა კლინტონის წინააღმდეგ, მან სასწრაფოდ გაანადგურა 32,000 იმეილი თავისი კერძო სერვერიდან როგორც „embarrassing” იმეილები.

ისაც ყველამ იცის რომ ივანიშვილს მილიონები აქვს კლინტონისათვის გადახდილი და ეს იმეილებიც, სხვა დანარჩენ იმეილებთან ერთად იმ 32,000-ში შედიოდა ალბათ.

თუ ვინმეს იმის იმედი აქვს რომ რაიმეს შეცვლის უკეთესობისაკენ, ცუდი ამბავი მაქვს. 2009-2013 წლებში, კლინტონი იყო სახელმწიფო მდივანი და ობამას მარჯვენა ხელი. ამ ხნის განმავლობაში, აბსოლიტურად არაფერზე არ უზრუნია გარდა საკუთარი კეთილდღეობისა. რომ გაუგეს მამაძაღლობა გადადგა. დარწმუნებული ვარ ეხლაც იმიტომ იყრის კენჭს პრეზიდენტობაზე, რომ გამოძიების წარმოება შეაფერხოს.

მექრთამე, მამაძაღლი, კორუმპირებული და უვარგისი პოლიტიკოსი. ეხლაც მილიონებს იღებს ვოლ სტრიტის მილიონრებისგან, რომლებიც არ დააყოვნებენ ამ თანხის საფასურის ამოღებას მისი პრეზიდენტობის პერიოდში.

WHY SHOULD I VOTE FOR HILLARY?

Hillary Rodham Clinton. She was the 67th United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. From 2001 to 2009, Clinton served as a United States Senator from New York.  The most widely traveled secretary of state and the most corrupt secretary of state in history of the USA.  Deleting nearly 32,000 emails that she deemed private.

What do you think they were “love letters” ?

Private Server?  The price of the new server is comparable to the price of the used car – several thousand to several tens of thousand dollars, depending on configuration. Just for private “embarrassing” emails? 

What happened with other “private” emails, I wonder?

Why didn’t she delete all of them?

Besides, we have a Democrat in the White House, and Clinton  was right hand of Obama from 2009 to 2013. Secretary of State, for a long four years.

What has been done in the last 8 years, besides spending money to fix bridges and roads?

I understand this is important, and, every economist knows, this is the way to help country recover from the recession. However, this does not help private sector, does not help students, does not create jobs (except, maybe construction jobs), does not raise wages, does not help our retirees… This is a temporary solution, but this time not so temporary, since this was going on for 8 years. We borrow money from one sector and spend for another sector, debt is growing and revenue does not. This kind of economy kills the future of the country, but apparently Democrats care less about our country.

All about Hillary Clinton or who is a liar now?

“We don’t need to make America great. America has never stopped being great,” Hillary Clinton keeps saying.

Have you heard about the condition called Amnesia? I think this is the condition affecting Hillary. She could not recall the events happening from the year of 2000. Maybe because, these events occurred as a result of Bill Clinton’s incompetent political decisions?

I remind you some of them. According to the Economic Policy Institute:

  • Most of the jobs lost or displaced by trade with China between 2001 and 2013 were in manufacturing industries (2.4 million jobs, or 75.7 percent).
  • Rapidly growing imports of computer and electronic parts accounted for the $240.1 billion increase in the U.S. goods trade deficit with China
  • The growth of this deficit eliminated 1,249,100 U.S. jobs in computer and electronic parts in this period.
  • In 2013, the total U.S. trade deficit with China was $324.2 billion
  • Other industrial sectors hit hard by the growing trade deficit with China between 2001 and 2013 include apparel (203,900 jobs); textile mills and textile product mills (106,800); fabricated metal products (141,200); electrical equipment, appliances, and components (96,700); furniture and related products (94,700); plastics and rubber products (72,800); motor vehicles and parts (34,800); and miscellaneous manufactured goods (107,600)
  • Service sectors were also hit hard, by indirect job losses, including administrative and support and waste management and remediation services (196,900) and professional, scientific, and technical services (169,900)

This study includes only the jobs directly or indirectly displaced by trade, and excludes jobs in domestic wholesale and retail trade or advertising.

Moreover, jobs displaced by China trade reduced wages and spending, which led to further job losses.

In my next blog, I’ll talk about the Great Recession of 2007–2009, and its impact on the “great” American economy.

TRUMP-RUBIO-CRUZ-CNN ENCOUNTER

I’ve tried to concentrate on different events, like Oscar, but I could not.

Despite Chris Rock’s desperate attempt to make the Academy Awards ceremony educational, nothing can beat the Trump-Rubio-Cruz-CNN encounter.

When you think that everything has been said and everyone has been offended, there is small handed Trump,  KKK endorsement. Who knew that Rubio is so funny?

Ted Cruz is suspiciously quiet. I think there is a great conspiracy between him and Rubio, to sink Trump and win the Election.

After eight years of doing “nothingness,” I don’t even consider that Democrats will win. I think they don’t deserve the White House anymore.

From My Joke Book

Late one night, a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs.

“Give me your money,” he demanded.

Indignant, the affluent man replied, “You can’t do this – I’m a United States Congressman!”

“In that case,” replied the mugger, “give me my money.” 🙂

 

Maybe, I was wrong about Donald Trump!

Folks, what do you think about yesterday’s Republican Debate?

Was not it hilarious?

I told you! Watch the CNN and have fun.

I was thinking last night 😦

Maybe, I was wrong about Donald Trump?

Maybe, he is not such a loser?

Maybe, he is really trying to “make America great again.”

So far, America is tumbling and falling downwards, and the World does not mind.

On the contrary, the World wants the fragile and weak Amerika.

The World does not like Donald Trump.

What is the conclusion?  Is Donald Trump the one?

I don’t want the next mediocre president for my country!

 

P.S. Only thing bothering me is Putin.

Putin hates America, and the first thing he hates to see is the strong America.

Why does he like Trump?

Donald Trump, friend or foe?

 

If you ask me, to some extent he is a great guy, he loves everyone and himself 🙂

What about beyond this extent?

Is he “the absolute leader of the presidential race”? As Putin praised him.

I don’t think so and there are four good reasons why Donald Trump should not be a next elected president:

First of all, Donald Trump is the only man who looked into President Putin’s eyes and saw a GREAT RULER. He is a ruler, all right, dictator ruler.

Second of all, entire Russia knows that Putin is the one who assassinated journalists in response to whatever truth they discovered against Putin’s gang. What did Trump say about this? “Nobody has proven that he’s killed anyone. … He’s always denied it. It’s never been proven that he’s killed anybody.”      Really Trump?

Third of all, on the question how US – Russia relations would change if you are elected president, Donald Trump answered: “Well, I think it would be good. I’ve always felt fine about Putin. I think that he is a strong leader. He’s a powerful leader. He’s represented his country — that’s the way the country is being represented. He’s actually got popularity within his country. They respect him as a leader. Certainly over the last couple of years they’ve respected him as the leader. I think he’s up in the 80s, which is — you see where Obama’s in the 30s, and low 40s, and he’s in the 80s.”  This is not love and/or respect, this is fear and horror. Unfortunately FOR YOU, USA is not Russia, you cannot kneel this nation.

¬Fourth of all, according to Jeffrey Kluger, author of The Narcissist Next Door: Understanding the Monster in Your Family, in Your Office, in Your Bed—in Your World, noted in Time, “To call Donald Trump a narcissist is, of course, to state the clinically obvious. There is the egotism of narcissism, the grandiosity of narcissism, the social obtuseness of narcissism.” I have different conclusion.

Conclusion, Mr. Trump, are you a KGB agent??? I know, I’m not only one who thinks that Trump is a “Kremlin agent”
