If anything can make a grown man cower, it's a grown and angry woman. Kudos to you sister!

I think she should have been a little more straightforward and to the point, instead of dancing around and trying not to hurt his feelings.

A modest proposal...

Hi, Nicki!

I am a member of an online RKBA forum called TheHighRoad.org, which was an outgrowth of The Firing Line after its demise. I'd like to invite you and any of your sisters at Armed Females of America to come and visit us at www.thehighroad.org. There you will find many like-minded men and women with similar views to AFA.

I read your letter to Rep. Danny Davis, and want to thank you for laying it out clearly for him. Amazing that sheeple of his ilk are actually sucking air and taking up space on the shores of this wonderful country.

I have wrestled with this since reading your letter yesterday; but my conscience will not let me do otherwise, so I'm asking:

Will you Marry Me?

Sincerely,
Ben Jxxxx

Sorry guys... She's married :(

From another site I participate at:


Wonder if Nicki is married?

Yes she is.
I met her and her husband last fall when he came in to buy a gun for work.
He is a miniJBT(fed guard for DOE I think..) and she was making fun of him for it!!
She is VERY cool to talk to.

I just fired off a note of appreciation to Nicki and got this response: Paul, thanks so much for taking the time to write. I plan to send a similar nasty to Sarah Brady and Tom Diaz. I don't think they'll get a clue, but it's worth a shot.
Ooohhhh, Mama!!! :D :p geegee

Need to get her and Ronnie Barrett working together on some more communications like this. The 2 of them have a gift for telling it like is!

Go, GO, *GO*!!!!

Uh, any double meaning there? :D


Oh, okay, I'm just kidding. I don't really want to see them shot. That's for enemy spies.


Traitors should be hung.

Well, while I was reading the letter, my wife read over my shoulder "Armed Female" and as soon as I was done, she kicked me off the computer and spent over an hour there and bookmarked it. We never knew it existed. I just need to get another computer. :)

I don't know her,but I like her style.She should send that to some newspapers,if they would even print it.Doubt if he would reply,but maybe it would give the people something to consider instead of just hearing his version.

Tempest
February 19, 2003, 09:51 PM
Wow! Never in a million years did I anticipate such a response to this! I'm stunned! The response to this brain dump is really flattering, and I'm totally floored. :)

I've gotten lots of invites to come check this place out. I was a member of TFL before its death, so it's nice to see this forum alive and well.

I'll be writing a bi-weekly for AFA again, like I did before its reorganization, so I look forward to seeing all of you there. :cool:

Oh, it's just Nikki... I thought it was someone I didn't know...

Nikki, can you say it a bit more bluntly for the man?? :D

Someone should teach the man some basic econ; we live in a society of "wants" and not "needs". He doesn't NEED to breath, but I'm sure he WANTS to, to stay alive... Although I think is a waste of perfectly good air, as Oleg would say..

Hey Tempest!

You've got a LOT of fans over here as well:

Your letter was a grand-slam home run.

I stand in awe of a master wordsmith.

Fans? Wordsmith? OMG!!! LOL

It was nothing but a braindump! Something that happens when I get pissed off. he he Must have been that time of the month! :what: :evil:

And nearly every Congresscritter is a waste of air. We need to lock them up, give them paper utensils and applesauce and let them urinate on themselves in a small cell far away from all humanity. It's a wonder these morons can tie their shoes by themselves!

Hey, where IS Oleg?

I have a negative comment :uhoh:

The ammunition picture is covering part of the letter on the website.

Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it! :D

Tempest

John, bear with AFA for a few. They're still ironing out kinks from a complete reorganization of the site, a new webmaster and a new platform. My margins were all messed up when I first accessed the article. They're working on the problem. :)

Maybe we should all send him a note asking if he's read her letter. Offer to explain the big words, perhaps....

February 20, 2003, 01:20 AM
I do believe that she is trying to get a certain point across!

And my wife thought I could get a little acidic in my commentary durring my younger days(before the years of marriage polished my rough edges).

Hmmm, could we have Nikki appointed as our UN ambassador?:evil:

NewShooter78
February 20, 2003, 01:22 AM
It was a great letter. I sent a little email to you from the AFA website earlier today when I first read your rant. I still think its awsome. We need to put together a whole book of online rants like these, publish them, and send them to every anti on the "Hill".

You are free to post any of my writing on AFA or Keepandbeararms.com anywhere you'd like, guys, as long as credit is given and the site is mentioned. KABA and AFA have a lot of terrific information, so I like to bring as many people over to those two sites as possible - not just to read my rants, although that's very flattering as well. But yeah - go for it! :)

I think if every person we knew got their butt in gear for 1/2 hour and wrote their Congressleech a nastygram, they would be deluged, and maybe they'd finally start to hear us! We need to do something, guys! Seriously! If y'all want to use my letter to Davis as a template, and just send it to every Congressleech's email, I'm all for it. They need a wake-up call, dangit! :cuss:

Hello Nicki,
Just wondering if that air sucker replied to you at all. Just curious. Great job and you got my vote to be our next Great Leader. :D

Tempest
February 20, 2003, 10:39 AM
Naw - he hasn't replied. I have to send snail mail, since his site - at last check - was under construction. (convenient, isn't it?) Anyway, I don't expect a reply. I sent Michael Moore a NASTY letter a few months ago, and he didn't reply either (shock! surprise!) But at least I got it off my chest. :cool:

Tempest

I decided not to waste the 37 cents. Instead, I faked a Chicago address on the House.gov website, and sent it to him electronically. One of two things will now happen:

1 - nothing
2 - there will be jack-booted thugs at my door, breaking into my home to collect my computer and me and cart us off to jail.

Any lawyers out there willing to get me out pro bono? ;)

The link is back up. I think the AFA server is getting slammed beyond all belief, seeing as how popular Nicki's letter has become. I even had several pro-gun friends who e-mailed me a link to it yesterday (not knowing I'm the one who posted it here and on The Firing Range).

At any rate, the letter is sure getting a lot of attention!

Let's put her in charge of the NRA, GOA and any other RKBA organization we can think of.

No more compromise, no more reconciliation.

She's awesome!
