Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Why would you say something like that? Do you think the NRA doesn't care who gets killed? I guarantee you 99% of the members in the NRA care and I also bet you the number is higher than the number of so called liberals who actually care.

The left are a bunch of hypocrites and only care about themselves, a bunch of phonies. Many are here.

Take Al Gore for example. Now here is a guy who says he wants everyone to pay their fair share of taxes yet he tried to close his deal before taxes went up, to AL-JAZERA no less!

That man profeses he cares about glowbull warming yet lives in a mansion with a carbon footprint of 20 homes.

Then there is another compassionate liberal Democrat "who cares". His name is John Edwards. Remember him? He's another one who ran for president/vice president. He cheated on his dying wife who has cancer.

Democrats care about money for themselves and are just greedy, uncaring, secular hypocrites who use the underclass and try to lock them into hate insteasd of prosperity.

This is where you try to look like a 1%'r telling all the freeloaders to get a job. But at the same time rant on about democratic hollywood being in the rich list. If all liberals are freeloaders how come in the top 10 rich list of the world 8 of the 10 are Liberal cause supporters. So all this shows you up as a Fox news drone, repeating $hit that is totally made up in your head.

Here is the chart they never want you to see:
http://shtfplan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/0...
According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.
lol
Meanwhile... In Australia.....
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our
own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, so the criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in
'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Amen to that.
You'll see the same statistics in every country that outlawed guns.
Ask yourself WHY they want you POWERLESS.
Is the State protecting you?
NO.
In England, it is a crime to protect yourself.
If you fight back in any type of crime, IN ANY WAY, YOU will go to jail.
You can't fix STUPID.
That's why I want to go to Texas. Blue states suck. Red states prosper, provide freedom and have nicer people. Liberals suck.

The British gun control program that precipitated the American Revolution: the 1774 import ban on firearms and gunpowder; the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of violence to effectuate the confiscations. It was these events that changed a situation of political tension into a shooting war. Each of these British abuses provides insights into the scope of the modern Second Amendment.
Furious at the December 1773 Boston Tea Party, Parliament in 1774 passed
the Coercive Acts. The particular provisions of the Coercive Acts were
offensive to Americans, but it was the possibility that the British
might deploy the army to enforce them that primed many colonists for
armed resistance. The Patriots of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,
resolved:“That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to heaven and our rifles.” A South Carolina newspaper essay, reprinted in Virginia, urged that any law that had to be enforced by the military was necessarily illegitimate.

The Royal Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, had forbidden
town meetings from taking place more than once a year. When he dispatched the Redcoats to break up an illegal town meeting in Salem, 3000 armed Americans appeared in response, and the British retreated.
Gage’s aide John Andrews explained that everyone in the area aged 16
years or older owned a gun and plenty of gunpowder.

Military rule would be difficult to impose on an armed populace. Gage
had only 2,000 troops in Boston. There were thousands of armed men in
Boston alone, and more in the surrounding area. One response to the
problem was to deprive the Americans of gunpowder.

Modern “smokeless” gunpowder is stable under most conditions. The “black powder” of the 18th Century was far more volatile. Accordingly, large quantities of black powder were often stored in a town’s “powder house,” typically a reinforced brick building. The powder house would hold merchants’ reserves, large quantities stored by individuals, as well as powder for use by the local militia. Although colonial laws generally required militiamen (and sometimes all householders, too) to have their
own firearm and a minimum quantity of powder, not everyone could afford
it. Consequently, the government sometimes supplied “public arms” and
powder to individual militiamen. Policies varied on whether militiamen
who had been given public arms would keep them at home. Public arms
would often be stored in a special armory, which might also be the
powder house.

Before dawn on September 1, 1774, 260 of Gage’s Redcoats sailed up the
Mystic River and seized hundreds of barrels of powder from the Charlestown powder house.

The “Powder Alarm,” as it became known, was a serious provocation. By
the end of the day, 20,000 militiamen had mobilized and started marching towards Boston. In Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, rumors quickly spread that the Powder Alarm had actually involved fighting in the streets of Boston. More accurate reports reached the militia companies before that militia reached Boston, and so the war did not begin in September. The message, though, was unmistakable: If the British used
violence to seize arms or powder, the Americans would treat that violent seizure as an act of war, and would fight. And that is exactly what happened several months later, on April 19, 1775.

You are a liar.

Gore's home uses 12 times the ave electricity than the average home but he buys his electric from green sources.

This makes you an idiot. Nothing new or surprising there.

If the NRA gave a sh*t, they would support efforts to limit the assault type rifles & support efforts to get guns out of the hands of gang members.

The NRA's response to Newtown was beyond pathetic.

These past few years, the Republican line on job creation has been simple: Cut government spending, tame the deficit, and unemployment will fall. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not the day after, but soon.“To put it simply,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R- Va.) said last spring,“less government spending means more private-sector jobs.” But that’s not exactly a rigorous study. So here’s a rigorous study.

In a new paper for the International Monetary Fund, Laurence Ball, Daniel Leigh and Prakash Loungani look at 173 episodes of fiscal austerity over the past 30 years—with the average deficit cut amounting to 1 percent of GDP. Their verdict? Austerity “lowers incomes in the short term, with wage-earners taking more of a hit than others; it also raises unemployment, particularly long-term unemployment.”
