I had a pretty awesome weekend visiting my grandparents and my French relatives in Iowa. I didn’t get a chance to talk politics with them mostly due to the language barrier but I did wear my End The Fed and Smash The State shirts. I did have debates with my grandpa over Ron Paul (he is very much anti-Ron Paul and says he “lives in a dream world”) and over gun rights (he believes we shouldn’t have firearms in our homes and having a gun is a macho thing, despite the fact he has a rifle, shotgun, and pistol). It baffles me that a retired military man of over 20 years doesn’t believe in owning firearms for self defence and property defence.
I had a very good weekend.
