I am a scanner listener,licensed ham,and a gun owner.The problem is,I
like most of the rest of us,do not have the money that the cellular
industry and the anti-gun ***S do.I read with great interest
everything I can find about all three subjects and it amazes me the
mis-information that is spread around Washington.
Unfortunately the ***S in Congress and the Senate are being fed all
this ***and they treat it like Mosses carried it down off the mountain
on a stone tablet.
The goal of the government is to make us into a nation of eunics,no
guns,no scanners,no ham radio,no personal freedom.
The louder we are,the more they will listen to us.The best defense we
have is to speak facts.If you notice the anti-gun people will spew
whatever bullshit any two-bit professor chooses to put on paper.No
matter how stupid or ludicrous.It's the same with the cellular
people.They want everyone to beleive that we are all listening to cell
calls.I have listened to them and they are boring.They make it seem as
if we are causing them to lose millions of dollars every year.If they
were actually concerned for their customers and not their profits,this
wouldn't even be an issue.
Ok,I'll step down from the soap box now.Everyone that reads this group
should,if you haven't already,register to vote.And write your
congressmen and senators.Let them know,nicely,that we are NOT going to
take this lying down!
Take care and 73,
Ham,scanner hobbyist,and licensed concealed carry gun owner
