Responsibility. No one is responsible for anything. A mad man kills children, its not his fault, its the guns. The problem is and will always be the one constant in every mass murder since the dawn of time. People. People kill people. Whether for money, power, land or just plain evil, people have and will always kill people. Take the guns away, there will be knives, sticks, arrows, cars, trucks, bare hands. If someone wants to kill they will. Maybe if that less than human debris that killed those children did not have guns he would have found something else. Bomb, fire, gas, poison, he would have found a way. Maybe not that day, maybe another but he would have found a way.
As for the number of deaths by guns in three years, the same number of auto deaths occurred over the same period.
southside, I am afraid you will not recognize the truth if it walked up and hit you in the head. For what we have been getting from The Government and our Guardians of the Truth, none of us would. We all seem to look at the same apple and can't agree what color it is. Fear, hate, bigotry and many other reasons cloud our judgement and the Government and our beloved press feed and feed off of these feelings. I feel we will never know "The Truth" until its too late.
Oh My! Its the Evil Lobbyist! What shall we do???? Complain to your representative and stop begging The Government for crap you are too lazy to get for yourself. You whine because BIG(enter entity here)has Lobbyist working for them. So what, so do you. Unions, NRA, AARP, NAACP, Religion, Gay, Race, every one of these groups that wine, dine and probably some of the above, in your favor are Lobbyist. So shut up about Lobbyist or stop the one ones you love so much.
Isn’t it touching how the left is so concerned about the fate of the Republican party. You would think they would relish being the only game in town.
Maybe, instead, they are just continuing to beat them while they are down hoping they do not get up. They have everyone including members of the Republican party convinced they should become the Democrat party 2.0.
I don’t know but once there was a time that proof had to be needed to make a statement. I guess that is not so. Now, it seems all it takes is for a lefty to say it and it is gospel. They call you a racist, you are a racist. They say you hate someone, you hate someone. Amazing the power of persuasion the left has.
Now all you hateful racist just do as the left tells you to do and maybe they will let you join them in their grand plan. Hallelujah!
Turntheothercheek. The only entity that can keep you from those “Freedoms” you are whinging on about, is “GOVERNMENT”. Not some wingnut far right holy of the hillbilly church. Only “GOVERNMENT” can keep you from being free. The more power you give the beast the less you have. Sure it will grant permission to marry who you will, and more power to ya, but it will take far more from you.
Here is an idea. How about we stop giving power to government and live as we choose.
For those who think that any “Civil War” will be started by a bunch right wingnut Billy Bob’s or toy soldier militia think again. Those guys will be settled in their bunkers hoping to wait it out. No. If there will be any unrest it will come when the checks stop coming and the government cards stop working. The military will be too busy trying to stop the Zombie Apocalypse to worry about Billy Bob and the boys.
When the commune collapses what will you do then? You may want to stay away from the punch bowl.
At 04:30 Wednesday morning, while getting ready to go to work, I was listening to the radio. Some clown was whinging on about the Republicans needing to compromise with The President. What about The President doing a little compromising. where has he shown the least bit of compromise. If he does not get his way he goes around Congress to get it. The Democrats definition of compromise is to bent over grab your ankles and let them have their way. Well bend over America.
Arestorer I could not agree more. Everyone should pay. Everyone should have a stake in the game. One flat rate no deductions. Not only would that be fair but the politicrooks could not use tax favors against each other to win elections. I prefer the fairtax/sales tax model myself. No taxes at all taken from our labors only our consumption. But I prefer no exemption or check back from the government.
Just who do you think will feel the effects of higher taxes? How many millionaires do you think make their money on investments only? Ho w many non millionaires do think will be affected by increasing the taxes on their investments and retirement?
I may be wrong but I do believe that when the federal income tax was first inflicted upon the country it was on the 1% of the time. My, how it has grown! It is still growing and has punishes and ever growing percentage of the workforce. Don’t forget the AMT because it is coming for you.
What will you do when increasing the tax on the evil rich like Romney, Trump, Oprah, Ellen, Gates and Buffet, has no effect on the problems caused by the bloated warthog we call Government? What will you advocate then?
Maybe we can really try the shared misery experience. We can confiscate everything, make everyone even and then divvy it out evenly. Yep, that will work.
All those IRA’s, 401k’s, individual investment accounts, savings accounts, checking accounts, secret stashes squirreled away in home safes, mason jars, and mattresses. That should make for one nice big pile. Man, we could really save the world then. And, who would you have decide who gets what and how they get it.
I know that is thinking in the extreme but you must look at the extreme when deciding on a way. Or as a hero of the left once said;
“You do not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it would do and the harms it would cause if improperly administered.”
Lyndon B. Johnson
So, does it now mean that when a republican suggest “a reduction in the future growth” democrats can’t wail on about it being the end of the world?
Marathonman, they do “understand the basic Romney intent”. But that would as you say “gives those who work more of their own money to spend”. They can’t have that. If the people can do without the government they will no longer need the Government and the Government will lose its grip. The left is all about Government. Government is their religion and their Messiah has come.
But don’t get me wrong. The hard core right is not much different. They want control as much as the hard core left does. The difference is the outlying followers of the right do not have the belief in government that the majority of the left does.
We need the freedom loving voters who would like our Republic to be what it should be to vote the messiah off his throne and as soon as Romney steps out of line boot his behind as well.
What we really need is a viable alternative. The libertarian party is not it. Not yet. It needs to grow up before it can grow.
But I am afraid that will have to wait till after the fall. If we survive.
Where are these facts that told that it was known that a pack of mindless morons were going to highjack airplanes and ram them into some buildings. I guess they are with the facts that prove that Bush planned the whole thing. Maybe they are with the facts of the Roswell crash or maybe the location of the top secret compound where they are housing all the Bigfoot. Is that bigfeet or bigfoots.
Facts, it seem, are like opinions, everybody has them.
I don’t know what Obama knew or did not. Same with Bush. We may never know. All we know is that both were screw ups. Everything dealing with those loons has been a total screw up for a lot longer than anyone cares to admit.
