The lies about our federal government -- that somehow they are in league with the United Nations, to the point where we can't even sign an international declaration on the rights of the handicapped!– have nothing to do with the stated objectives. This is like a family argument where an uncle shows up at the dinner table and argues with everyone not because he actually disagrees but because he's feeling alienated from the family.
Simple palpable hatred drives these people to willful ignorance. The white males insisting on carrying guns (in a country where violent crime is way down!) are scared, not of muggers, but of the fact that their imaginary reality is coming unstuck.
They're too smart to believe that Fox News spin on reality is reality. Most of these folks are too smart to believe in their evangelical theology either. I'll bet at heart many are atheists or at least doubters, well aware of the hypocrisies and inanities of evangelical Christianity. But they put on an act of upholding what they believe are the traditional standards we need to live by, which really boils down to little more than white resentment.

state of panic exists because Republican members of Congress demand a state of paralysis. They want to freeze the world as it is because the new world doesn't have room for white male bigots who base their lives on Bronze Age mythology and white, privileged, Jeffersonian-style institutional racism. Their real ideology has nothing to do with gun rights, fighting against abortion or reducing the size of the federal deficit, but has everything to do with their own personal psychological turmoil.

Obama, unlike idiot Gore, was savvy enough to realize an anti gun stance would cost him the presidency. Gore wasn't smart enough.
Did Bush steal the election from Gore? Hell no, the big dummy Gore gave it to him.
I agree Gore gave Bush the Election, thank god.

PHOENIX -- Phoenix authorities say a 5-year-old boy was found in a car's front passenger seat after police fired at the vehicle and fatally shot the driver.

Sgt. Trent Crump says the motorist evaded a traffic stop late Monday night after he appeared to be impaired.

I agree there will be another civil war for sure and now they are talking about implementing the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan(D-NY) Idea of taxing gun ammunition into Oblivion by 10,000%.

Tuesday on Mike Huckabee’s radio program, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said she hoped to start the year off right by cutting federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

“It is the right fight to have on so many different levels,” she said (MP3).“We know that Planned Parenthood is basically big abortion business.”

There will not be another civil war in this country; unless all the nutcase yahoos start. You people have to realize that this is not 1776 fer krissakes. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

The Hyde Amendment bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortions with exceptions for incest and rape.

O'Reilly simply suggested an audit into Planned Parenthood to ensure this amendment was being upheld last night.

You'd think he had suggested an all out war against PP by their representative's response.

If PP is not using federal funds, of which they receive over 500 billion, to pay for abortions, why would anyone resist the idea of looking into it on behalf of taxpayers who want to be reassured their tax dollars aren't funding these abortions?

Red flags went up all over the place.

I, for one, would like to be reassured the Hyde Amendment is being upheld with Planned Parenthood funding.

its all about Totalitarianism or Totalitarian Rule which is the extreme version of authoritarianism which the concept of Totalitarianism was first developed on a positive sense in the 1920s by the Italian fascists & Benito Mussolini but to achieve that you have to collect the guns so individuals cant resist or fight back against change and Jefferson said it best & is right.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

President Barack Obama will tomorrow host a screening of the sitcom ‘1600 Penn’ Critics have called the show "terrible," "bad," and "with nothing especially funny, or smart, or clever, either." I think the Critics comments really is a reflection or assessment of the Past Four Years of this Presidency!!

Conservative group ForAmerica on Wednesday launched an ad targeting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over the deal he brokered to avert the fiscal cliff.

The ad, according to a release, will run in Kentucky and on sites like The Drudge Report, foxnews.com and The Daily Caller.

ForAmerica Chairman Brent Bozell, also the president and founder of the conservative Media Research Center, said in a statement:

“Senator McConnell often talks a tough game and sells himself as a conservative, but his actions speak louder than his words. His role as President Obama’s bag man in the latest fiscal cliff disaster clearly demonstrates that Senator McConnell is more interested in the art of the bad deal rather than standing up and fighting for conservative principles. It is time for conservatives to stand up to politicians in both parties who talk conservative but govern as liberals."
