<quoted text>
By 2016 possession of a firearm will be a FELONY! Because of that, gun crimes in America will drop substantially, like it has in England and other safe no-gun nations.
How is it that in cities and states with tough anti gun laws the crimes committed with guns are on the increase.

A prime example of this is Chicago.

The second amendment prevents the passage of laws making possesion of firearms a felony.

If you are already a convicted felon it is already a felony for you to possess a firearm. If you obey the laws of this country the Constitution grants the right to keep and bear firearms.

More Evidence of Liberal Pussification
Des Moines Lincoln High School football coach Tom Mihalovich was recently suspended when it was decided he had violated “school bullying and corporal punishment policies” after he made a sophomore run sprints and laps for saying mean things about the varsity team. From the Des Moines Register:
http://www.thebiglead.com/index.php/2012/10/1...
Are we becoming a bunch of wimps or what?

There was a time not too long ago when it was like a badge of honor to "complain" about having to run extra laps.

Because we used to know when punishment was well-deserved.

It was only in the two digit range right for a few months after 9/11 and a few months before the crash.
It's not that Obama didn't inherit a crappy economy.
We all acknowledge that.
It was his priorities the first two years in office with a democrat-majority congress that prolonged the recovery.
In fact, it was his priority, Obamacare, that is causing a lot of the problems we're having.
His priorities and policies have failed the American people.
Those policies took a 750,000 a month job losses to zero.

You think that was a failure. How pathetic.

U6 when Obama walked in the door was 14%. I wonder, what would losing 750,000 jobs in a single month change it?

But somehow people just don't react the same.

Just ask Russia.

Another case where the last guy really does need to be ignored by the right. Just ask Mitt. When was the last time he mentioned the 'success' of the Bush admin. When was the last time anyone mentioned 'success' when it came to Bush foreign policy?

So who did Mitt get for foreign policy advisers? Just ask Russia.

Democrats Plan More Tax Hikes
Schumer Previews What He’d Do in a Second Obama Term
If re-elected, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will raise taxes on small business in order to sustain the ginormous federal government they have built. The White House duo have done nothing to avert “Taxmaggedon,” the massive tax hike scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. Worse, the administration’s congressional allies are preparing to push Mr. Obama even further should he win a second term.
The No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said Tuesday that he intends to eliminate tax deductions and credits without lowering the top two marginal tax rates. The New York Democrat thinks it’s more important that Uncle Sam pocket the extra cash that would be generated.

Buying Obama’s whoppers - Media Helps White House Distort Facts

Far more serious than commandeering Big Bird or unloosing Joe the Bully is the administration’s pack of lies surrounding the murderous Sept. 11 attack this year on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

The pattern of deception is so complete, obvious and shocking that if America had a real “mainstream” media, the election would be over.

When (much deserving) Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, he received the 1.2 million award that goes with it.
He didn't pocket a dime of it and gave it to the 99% to protect and restore the middle class.
Romney, who will take us to war in Iran and Syria, would never win the Nobel Prize and would surely pocket the money.
That's the difference--Obama stands behind the middle class and Romney wants to get rich.
Its clear and its obvious.

That is unless you define constructive criticism of anything Obama does as racist.

Gunner was so stupid that he flunked his covics cass.

Obama can not stop Taxmageddon until Congress passes somethng.

We are talking about Taxmageddon because Congress could not agree on a solution.

Who is a Republican leader in Congress - Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan failed.

This is the guy that has no details on any plan because he will sit down with Republicans & Democrats?

You agree?

You are in idiot, Lily.

"Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was far more generous to charities than President Barack Obama or Vice President Joe Biden last year, both in dollar terms and as a percentage of income, tax return data Romney’s campaign released Friday indicate.

Romney and his wife, Ann, gave 29.4 percent of their income to charity in 2011, donating $4,020,772 out of the $13,696,951 they took in."

I do have good logical thinking skills.
Where we are headed is right in front of us. Our jobless rate is improving as it has been over the last three years. Romney inadvertently put Russia on notice by proclaiming it as out number one enemy.
How can you sit there and say that an unemployment rate that has been consistantly above 8%with the exception of the last report which reflects .2% less than 8% 3 years of constant improvement.

You need to go drink some more of that libtard Kool Aide. You are way out of touch with reality so you just might as well take the plunge and immerse yourself in your BS.
