NRA is evil.
Report as
LMAO...NRA is evil? Buddy you obviously have never been in the face of evil. While I may not agree with everything they say I would rather let them fight for my rights to own a gun then have the Insurance companies lobby washington...
Report as
NRA is lobbying for the gun manufacturers not gun owners. Gun owners are overwhelming for reasonable gun legislation, like banning assault rifles. It's the NRA that lobbies for killing machines to be out in the streets. Pure evil.
Report as
Douglas, I don't wish to sound mean, but you really don't know the facts about the NRA at all. Your "facts" are all based on fantasy, not the reality.

It ain't over till the Fat Lady sings..actually , that may be Canadian. I know it's reference is to a hockey game. What about , " Remember Pearl Harbor" or "Some gave all" " Loose Lips Sink Ships" or " Where's The Beef"..."Come to Papa"..."Hail Mary".."Trailer Trash".. "Redneck"..

I'm not 100%, but I think the "ain't over until the fat lady sings" goes back to early 1950's American television. At the end of every broadcast day (midnight usually), they'd play a short film clip of the American flag waving with background music of the national anthem sung by the popular and beloved soprano Kate Smith (famous in previous decades on the radio), who was fondly called "the fat lady" (she was quite large in her later years).
The day wasn't over until 'the fat lady sings".
(After that, the test pattern came on and no more TV until dawn.)
Report as
I think the reason why they say "it isn't over until the fat lady sings" is because it relates to opera, and the opera was over once a fat lady sang the high notes. That's just what I heard, but I could be wrong.
Report as
Yes, I heard that one, too, but it seems unlikely (to me) because too many operas don't end that way. If they meant Brunhild in Wagner's Ring Cycle (she was a muscular Valkyrie with the horned helmet, usually), it is still off since the opera isn't over when she stops singing-- it keeps going.
So..... I dunno. :D

Well, I suppose we just made a whole new question! Do you mind if I ask it?

Old old sayings:
"A stitch in time saves nine." (Repair now or it's more work later to fix it.)
"Never buy a pig in a poke" (Poke = sack, so 'examine before buying'.)
"Give him enough rope and he'll hang himself." (Let a liar continue to lie in detail, and eventually he'll contradict himself and be proven a liar.)
"You can't really know a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes."
"A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins."
"A penny saved is a penny earned."
"Red sky in morning, sailor take warning; red sky at night, sailor's delight." (Weather forecast mnemonic.)
"If you want something done fast, ask a busy person to do it."
-- Local to Chicago (known as 'the Windy City'):
"Don't like the weather? Just wait 15 minutes..."
"If you ever needed both the air conditioner and the furnace in the same day, then you must live in Chicago."
"Everywhere else in the country, voting is a right and a duty -- in Chicago, it's a sport."
"Hollywood is all hype, New York is all talk, but Chicago is all work."

Then, again, it's also true in Death Valley. Killer cold at night, often...
