What did you expect from Tarentino? Gratuitous violence, murders and gunplay. I'd say that guy shares some of the blame for our gun violent society.
Do you happen to prefer science fiction?
This is part of the answer Lily was looking for the other day. Gratutious violence in movies and video games coupled with a generation devoid of a moral compass thanks, in large part, to the progressive liberal mentality...a perfect combination for the powers of darkness to wreak havoc.

How will the tab be paid?
Cutting millions of dollars a year on waste and duplication is the starting point. Major reforms and revenues by a strong free market would pay for the rest sooner than later.

Of course, term limits and ridding Congress of career politicians is an absolute necessity. This has to be the republican platform in 2016.

Its the same thing I've been telling you for years, you have to pay for the government you demanded instead of stealing from future generations. You've been more than happy to sit on your as s enjoying these tax cuts while demanding ever more from your government and deferring the cost to your daughter.
You sure haven't been very vocal about this the past four years - six if you include the last two years of Bush's term and a democrat congress.

I did research this myself:
Obama has intentionally and willfully lied to the American public, yet idiotic liberals stick by him:
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as todays headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Partys goal.
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a crackpot smear. Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party. I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a contract promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Rush and others were right, idiotic Topix libs were wrong, big surprise.
It's more difficult for me to understand why everyone can't see this is what's happening than being surprised that it is.

Republican Deficit Hypocrisy

Bruce Bartlett, 11.20.09, 12:01 AM EST

Remember the Medicare drug benefit?

The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.

This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history--$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America's seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.
