Barack Obama, our next President

Part of the problem with you people is you can't change with the times.

That's why you made such a big deal about the teleprompter... because it was new technology you weren't prepared to use.

You people want to go backwards and stay there? Be my guest!

Just don't take the rest of us along for the ride.

That was an example of the worst sort of logic possible.
Nations with strict gun laws have death rates by gun violence of aalmost zero.
See JApan, England, and Australia for proof.
The reality is, we have to get guns out of our society.
Period.
the 'right to bear arms' has made this country a killing field, with death rates similar to nations at war.
Read the headlines today.
2 Policemen shot in Kansas.
1 person shot in Texas parking lot.
We're an angry society. Having guns everywhere takes anger and turns it to murder.
My position is that most Americans should not have guns.
There must be backround and mental tests before people can buy weapons.
That will eliminate most right wingers right off the bat.
Let's assume you could make all law abiding citizens turn in their guns, how would you do the same to the rest of society, you know, Obama voters? Could you guarantee that I would be safe from those gun wielding a*holes? No, you can't, and that buddyboy is a problem. Bad people do bad things, good people protect themselves from bad people; you know, Obama voters.

<quoted text>I'm not confused, carol, I'm disgusted with your constant harping on an issue that's been settled for thirty-odd years. Abortion is a medical procedure. That's what it is, whether you care to admit it or not. If you disagree with abortion, you are perfectly and exquisitely free never to contemplate, seek, or obtain one. Otherwise, it's not your business, regardless of how many fetuses you sniff when you poke your long twitching proboscis up the vaginas and into the uteri of every pregnant woman on earth.
Thanks Sister, agree. Ok, here's some heartwarming stuff about wonderful dogs, for anyone who didn't see this on the news:

Comfort Dogs’ Come To Newtown


Comfort Dogs.

Brilliant.

I never even knew this was a thing. I, of course knew about police dogs, but this weekend a team of Golden Retriever ”Comfort Dogs” were brought into Newtown from Chicago for the sole purpose of comforting kids and people who need it after the tragedy in Newtown on Friday.

These are special, calm dogs who are there for anyone who wants to pet them, cuddle with them, or just get some unconditional love from them

(photos of the dogs with the families and children in CT) I just love this idea.

Everyone else was in mourning and being comforted at this service. You are a sick woman, Get help.

The Lanza's were Registered Republicans, both husband and wife.

They were wealthy, both had worked in finance, had mega-bucks. He's a VP at GE, I believe.

The mother made a tragic mistake, but then, she was a gun nut, survivalist, and NRA fan.

Only the wingnuts are survivalists. We have some of them here.

Wonder how many members of the Supreme Court witnessed an abortion before their ruling?
The initial law surrounding Roe v Wade was quite restrictive.
Not anymore. It's what happens when you open the door just a crack. Once it's open, there's no closing it again.
Why don't you go join one of those anti abortion forums? We're not interested in this bullshyt.

Sure, Carol.
Your model is for the President to fly over the scens, ala Bush and New Orleans.
How'd that remote way of dealing with a tragedy work for him??
Obama showed compassion and caring. The people of Newtown got the message, even if it flew right over your drug addled head.
He handled it perfectly.
Your anger is proof of this.
Deal with it, you hateful loser!!
Carol is still here she did not run away.
fred, florida and the collection of racist a s s hats are gone.

No woman wants to have an abortion.
Who should decide is the issue?

Never had an abortion. Witnessed a few in the late 1970s in the hospital where I worked. Many nurses who were once pro-choice became anti-abortion - including myself. It was quite traumatic for some.
But if you refuse to watch what you don't want to see, you are more in denial than I thought, Lily.
I thought you believed a fetus was just a glob of tissue or something.
You have an opportunity to learn that maybe you were wrong. But refuse to do so.
What are we to call people like you - who want to be right in the face of being proven wrong?
Do you really think anybody here has NOT seen footage of a fetus in the womb?

Since they haven't released any photos or videos of the elementary school victims as they lay dead how do you know it was a tragedy?

If those poor sweet innocent children had been aborted in the same vile and inhuman way, no tears would have been shed by this president.
We all know it. But apparently, I'm the only one who will say it. And I will not back down from saying it.
Legalized abortion is a moral blight on a civilized society and we can never expect anything good to come of it.
In fact, we lost our way precisely in the late 1970s - when abortion became the law of the land.
We are, in fact, reaping what we have sown.
Dr. Mengele was a fetus at one time too, carol. So were Pol Pot, Idi Amin, and Charles Manson, not to mention the 'angelic and highly sentimentalized' former fetus, lately responsible for the deaths of 28 people in Connecticut.

Inn Carol's sick, warped world, she wins either way.

She criticizes Obama for gooing to Newtown.

She'd have criticized him if he hadn't.

That's the behavior of schizophrenics.

Bet she's smoking like a chimney today, rolling out her sick views on abortion and the Newtown shootings.

Haven't heard her wn=hining about the 'war on smokers' lately.

Guess she got beat up too badly on that one!!

She really is sick. I pity her husband. At least daughter has escaped her warped hatred.

Ok who decides?
State legislators, I don't think so.
Abortion is a difficult decision, some motived by poverty caused by Republicans wanted to make certain millionaires have that 7th vacation home.

Notice republican oppose abortion and Obamacare at the same time.

That's magical thinking, worthy of a true idiot!!
These people will shoot anyone, armed or not!!
And they have the element of suprise and shock on their side.
I'm sure a disturbed person such as you would tend to think you know how another disturbed person thinks.but as a disturbed person your BS has no merit.

St<quoted text> what kind of rifle diid he have? And do you honestly believe a coward that picks helpless children as his victims would have stood up to an armed adult or even made the atempt. Highly unlikely. Cowards allways pick soft targets that don't shoot back.
My bad for 2wr long gap in my response, but he had 2 handguns a glock & a 9 sig sour. He also had an AR-15 bush master. Almost all of these mass shootings/shooters weapon of choice was the AR-15. The dude in the mall last week, the Aurora movie theater shooting, I'm not sure but I believe the Columbine shooting also had an AR 15. Now do I think if an adult was armed, would he have still done what occurred. Yes! Look at the bank robbers in San Francisco. The entire police force responded & they still walked & drove casually, all the while letting off AK-47s & when the last guy realized he couldn't get away, he shot himself in the head. Thats the key component. Somewhere along in their lives these people lost their fear of consequences, therefore have no fear of dying. Infact already made up their minds that their lives are going to end on that specific day at that specific time. They're hell bent on accomplishing their mission and an adult armed is only an optical, not a deterrent. In these situations nothing is black & white except the shooter. The same reason that it's impossible to win a war against kamikazes, it's impossible to stop these such acts once they start because while your thinking rational, these people have tunnel vision, all they see is the finish line. Not to mention the fact that until you've actually been in that type of situation, all you can do is say what you'd do. Reality is most people would freeze up. It's a whole other world when the target is shooting back.
