We have become a voyeuristic society that thinks we have the right to know everything; neighbors spying on neighbors, looking up info on everyone they meet; the latest news here: a $100 bonus to report an impaired driver. Soon there will be a law against texting and driving; another reason for the police to pull people over. It's sickening.
Regarding the gun owners info being published; who does that serve?
It's like a roadmap for the gun thieves.
I think vehicle licensing should be done by the insurers, maybe gun ownership should be treated similarly. I know that in my industry insurers are a far stricter regulator than the NRC. I'm just thinking out loud here and I'd be interested in other's thoughts.

Get a clue!! Your Beloved Democrats voted WITH GWB to use force IN BOTH WARS! Where did Democrats get their info?? Why it was the same Intel that GWB got his but we hear nothing from you clowns!! Why is that? No WMD's? What the hell do you call nerve agents Saddam used on Iranians and his OWN people as hundreds of thousands died from it? Kool- aid?? IT'S KNOWN FACT THAT HE HAD WMD'S!! What is so hard to understand that?? What did Saddam do with them? Archeologists many years from now will probably find them buried thousands of feet underground or he simply had them shipped off to Syria prior to the war! Take your pick! Regardless!!! Saddam had violated U.N. Resolutions from the First Gulf War and that gave us every right to go back in!

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished
anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or
commanded a military platoon. So he is made the "Beloved Leader" of North Korea. Terrific.!

I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing. We took an arrogant community organizer, who had never worn a uniform,
and made him Commander-in-Chief. A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration,
and we made him President of the United States ---- TWICE.!!

Just to follow up on that statement, I also believe this country has done more good in the world than bad to make it a better place.
But I'm also glad this old world isn't my home. Too much strife and suffering. Who really would want to live here forever?
I saw a documentary last night called "Happy" about how people live all over the world and what really makes all of us happy.
It was amazing to see how much we have in common with even the poorest among us when it comes to the most important things.
If anyone gets a chance to see it, it's worth watching.
Think it was Eugene Cernan (Gemini/Apollo 10 and 17 Astronaut) that made a statement similar to "if all mankind could "look back and see the Earth" as those who have traveled to it's outer limits have, the world would be a better place"...

I think that would be true...for the ones with any real humanity and an actual honest working brain cell to them anyway :-).

Only a colossal retard off the charts on the left calls a victory and liberation a "disaster".

By the way, two facer, who's paying for Obama's government that is tanking our country into more and more debt?

I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a crack-down on Kentucky roadside gun-shows. Take that NRA and TEA Party members.

You're pretty naive
Would that include Clinton and Obama? Do they not give a damn either?

If it had been up to you and me - and Tenzing - I'm sure we would have led the charge in Darfur and Rwanda.

Unfortunately, we're on sidelines and can only observe and ask why.

Here we go again with the teabagger garbage again. You clowns are stuck on that word for some odd ball reason. Do you even know what the courageous Tea Party is all about? It's obvious you don't!!!
I’ll tell you since you have no clue.
It’s about a balanced budget, fiscal responsibility, more open government (something we have not seen from you Savior in Thief) and less taxes (which should not affect you as you and almost 50 percent of Americans pay no income tax what-so-ever.)

Little more and it'll be o par with the Roosevelt/Truman (Depression Era) years.

God Congress-get some real brain activity and help us.

Not me.

We need a specific sales tax to directly pay for our military adventures abroad, that'd get y'all's attention.

Do we, as a country, intervene in every civil war around the world?
Let the Russians and Iranians spend their resources in Syria; I am glad that we have not gotten involved. The involvement is to protect Turkeys border, a Nato operation.
While it's horrible what happened in Darfur and Rwanda; is it our responsibility to solve it and how?
I think we as a country have to concentrate on helping Americans and stop putting our noses in everyones business.

Black and white skunk sign at Kansas TEA Party rally was not funny, referring to President Obama. Pushing the envelope I say close to being a racist sign.
