McDonalds contributed immensely to these government "buy back" programs back in the late '80s. and/or early 90s. They are welcome to spend their profits any way they want, but since that is how they chose to spend it and assist in spending taxpayer dollars with it, they do not get any profits from me.

My kids growing up hated not being able to go to McDonalds like the other kids did. They lived through it just fine.

McDonalds is however a great place to stop on a long road trip when you feel the need to sit in a small room for a few minutes. They are clean.

They have not seen a dime of my money for well over two decades, maybe three decades now.

I don't feel rest areas are very safe for answering nature's call, so I've made numerous "deposits" for Ronald McDonald for just that reason.

Shotgun

As you can plainly see from the pictures ( no shoulder stock) those are pistol type shotguns and not the NFA short barrel type.

The idiots in St. Louis are getting ready to have one of these.

I hope some bright person comes up with the same idea.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
