Saturday, Alabama fans celebrated the Tide's latest championship with a special parade and ceremony in Tuscaloosa. Thank you to Uncle Henry Show listener Bristol T. for taking these pictures and sharing them with those of us who are homebound, shut-in or just opposed to going anywhere. ROLL TIDE ROLL!
Good morning, Uncle Henry,
Freddy, at the time of the Founding the militaries of the day carried rifles and muskets. Our Founding Fathers did not turn around and tell the citizenry that they could only carry crossbows and spears because they did not wish for them to be as well-armed as the military. On the contrary, our Founding Fathers knew that in order for the American people to remain free they must be as well armed and well equipped as the military.
Had the Founding Fathers had access to machine guns and automatic rifles they would want the citizenry to be equipped with them, so as to act as both support for the military in the event of external invasion and to act as the final check against tyranny from within.
There is a reason why the dictatorships of the 20th century disarmed the populace before showing their true colors. The Nazis in Germany and the Communists in Russia and China never would have survived if they had faced armed opposition. But, once their respective peoples were disarmed they subjugated them, segregated them, and murdered them.
I pray such a time does not come to this country, Freddy, but if it does I pray there is a patriot near you who can protect you with his Bushmaster. Because you will need someone to protect you if you won't do it yourself.
Take care, Uncle Henry! Rusty, congratulations on the handgun! Consider a rifle or a shotgun for home defense, but for now a handgun is a great weapon since you will have the ability to carry it once you get a license.
Good Morning Uncle Henry,
About Obama’s 23 Executive Actions. No’s 16, 17, and 20 through 23 reference mental health and the Affordable Care Act. These actions concern me. The media is touting that Obama has closed a loophole at gun shows. Whether he has or hasn’t I can’t say as I’m not familiar with the process of purchasing a firearm at a gun show. However, while he may have closed that loophole, I feel he has created a larger one, leaving a huge grey area for more restrictions under the No’s I cited. Here’s my concern. What EXACTLY defines mental instability? For instance, a person that had to take an anti depressant (or ssri) for a non threatening life issue VS a severe case of paranoid schizophrenia. This is a very wide range Obama is leaving Secretary Sebelius to work with. I know people taking anti-depressants that would never take another life unless it was a self defense situation. This should concern folks.
In 2007, after the VA Tech shooting, Congress passed a law that would prevent guns finding their way into the hands of the mentally ill. The LA Times reported:
"The measure, signed by President George W. Bush, promised to strengthen the 14-year-old National Instant Criminal Background Check System by establishing incentives and penalties to prod states to submit records of people legally barred under federal law from buying guns — including those who had been committed to mental institutions.
But today, that promise remains unfulfilled. More than half the states haven't provided mental health records to the federal database that gun dealers use to check on buyers. And the gap in dealing with the mentally ill is just one of myriad problems that have hampered background checks."
It’s just something to think about Uncle Henry. Obama knows he can’t eradicate the Second Amendment so he’ll go through the ACA for gun control. I don’t see how any of these Executive Actions will prevent criminals or the mentally ill from committing horrific crimes as we’ve seen in the past. Yet law abiding citizens continue to pay for those crimes.
Have a great day and Roll Tide,
My favorite bacon is made by the same people that make Conecuh sausage. Try it and you’ll love it. Also, line a cookie sheet with tinfoil, lay bacon out flat, bake at about 350 till it’s done to your liking. Comes out nice and flat and perfect for sandwiches and burgers.

Here is photographic proof... little 2 year old MP is eating bacon while lissening to your bacon show. Pic taken 8:06 am. Feeling blessed.
Henry, I was listening to your program and thought I would tease you with this photo! I was actually cooking while listening to your program. Great minds DO think alike! Have a great day sir.
Good Monday morning and ROLL TIDE ROLL!!! Can you believe it's been an entire
week since we trounced notre dame? Speaking of football......did you catch any of the playoffs?
p.s. how could a gal from Alabama go to new york and win miss america? what? they not
have any good looking gals up there?
Good morning, Uncle Henry,
The .22 Long Rifle (.22 LR) is going to be your most versatile, most plentiful, and least
expensive round you can get. There are both handguns and rifles you can get that shoot .22,
it is capable of stopping a man if well placed, and it is excellent for small game and training.
You can get a pack of 500 .22 cartridges for about $20 in most gun stores or Wal-Marts.
The next most plentiful cartridge is going to be 9 millimeter. Because it is the most common
pistol caliber for the police and military there is a lot of it floating around out there. I don't
personally own a 9 millimeter handgun, but if I were currently in the market for a handgun
I would probably be going with that, simply due to how much there is available and how cheap
it is in comparison to other pistol calibers out there (Such as .45 and .38).
Hey Uncle Henry,
Are you accepting donations of bacon grease? Me and some neighbors may start
a BG drive for you if you are in a desperate situation !
