You haven't figured a way to blame Obama for the new laws??
I'm surprised!!
Soon, we will pay insurance, auto taxes, etc. based on miles driven.
I don't like it, but it's coming.
It's round two for this Oregon mileage tax__round one was laughed out of the statehouse.

The tax is being considered only for super efficient autos that are seen as not contributing a fair share of road taxes. LMAO, this in a state that once had a rebate plan for those paying extra in sales taxes for fuel sipping cars.

No mention of motorcycles, scooters etc. Or bicycles__the state has thousands of miles of bicycle lanes that contribute zilch in tax money.

Once again flack read only the headline.

Didn't happen. I've always known that video was watched real-time in DoD facilities in the region and in the Pentagon. And, I made the comment that it is a certain conclusion that the real-time video was being watched by someone in the White House. The only question is, was Obama among those in the White House watching the real-time video, or was he doing what he usually does, like when he thought he would be playing golf all goddam day on the day supposedly he decided to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden.
Where exactly was Obama when the real-time video of the battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi was being watched in the White House?

An abortion is far cheaper than lifetime healthcare expenses.
Yet you want to increase the number of people that you have to pay healthcare costs for.
Pretty stupid way to look at it.
Save $100.00 now, so you can spend $100,000.00 later.
Typical wingnut math.

And that explains the battles in the suburbs of Damascus....
You are an idiot....
The United States didn't supply the Soviet Union with significant quantities of weaponry until the war was well underway, idiot. Here's a rough timeline for you:
1940 Lend-Lease Act
1939 Hitler invades Russia.
... oops. 1939 happened before 1940.
1935 Stalin begins series of purges.
... oops. 1935 happened before 1939.
... dufus.
And, if you had any knowledge about what you speak, you will know that the total arms from the United States to Russia during the war amounted to less than 10 percent of the weaponry and supplies Russia used to defeat Hitler.
It's amusing watching you dance and dodge, but it becomes repetitive and boring. Let's get back to the subject. There are still two questions that nobody on Earth has been able to answer:
Exactly where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down America security when real-time video of the battle was being watched in the Pentagon?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Got an answer?
Germany did not invade Russia until June 1941. I swear did any of you stupid fcks every read a history book?

I'd gladly pay for a concerted effort to bring awareness to the ugliness of abortion and the consequences of being stupid.
It'd probably be a lot cheaper too.
But as long as abortion is considered a perfectly acceptable contraceptive choice and everyone keeps avoiding the social pressure to prevent it or at least decrease the numbers, no one is going to address it. Certainly, not you.
Your liberal blinders prevent you from seeing that many democrats are also anti-abortion. It's periphery vision that blinds you. But go ahead and keep adjusting your blinders. You might get spooked otherwise.
Doubt if it is contraception.

Women do not wish to have abortions and do so after thought.

Ryan got the "no abortion plank" into the losing Republican platform and went down in flames.

Republican Senate candidates Akin and Mourdock, both damaged by rape remarks, lost their respective Senate races in Missouri and Indiana

Two once-favored GOP Senate candidates, Todd Akin of Missouri and Richard Mourdock of Indiana, who got tangled up in the politics of rape and abortion and were rejected by voters.

Tea Party is great for the Democrats.

The State of Washington already has a $100 per year fee on electric vehicles to make those greenie freeloaders pay their fair share of highway maintenance.

Even a dog learns what bad behavior brings. The death penalty means nothing if it isn't used. The average stay on death row is over 10 years and very often never carried out. I guarantee that if it was executed swiftly and painfully, with national coverage, it would have a profound impact on criminals. While we're at it, let's add gun crimes, ANY gun crime, to the list of capitol offenses, see what that would do.
The single most destructive idea our legal system has devised is the theory of "rehabilitation". In the rush to prove that academia can outwit nature, we allow 'evil and defect' to prey on use time and time again. The number of repeat offenders vs. those "rehabilitated" should show any reasonable person how ridiculous the concept really is. And as we make the same mistake over and over, the innocent victims keep piling up.
Man, are you stupid or what? Here's what a dog learns: never to bite the hand that feeds it unless it stops feeding it, in which case, you eat it. If you take away the "dog's" food, it will eventually eat you instead (nature.) Now, since we're not talking about dogs let's look at the rest of your idiotic statement. Good and evil are completely subjective terms. If you are the CEO of a drone defense contractor, then you are doing God's work by dropping hell-fire missiles on people who look like they're up to no good. If, however, you are a Taliban soldier celebrating your son's or daughter's wedding when the missile lands in the cake, you're inclined to look upon the whole concept of drones as being something evil. So, who's "right?" Well, you're "right" obviously. To use your own analogy, even a dog can learn, but can he? Can he really?

Is has been conclusively determined that infants - dogs in this case - can recognize right and wrong as you define them; moral vs. immoral behavior,(leaving aside for a moment the completely different concept of socially acceptable behavior because you were speaking in absolutes and therefore so will I.) This tends to deny the theory that right and wrong are learned behaviors if the little rascals pop out already knowing which is which. Probably the same thing with dogs don't you figure? I assume that's why you drew the analogy in the first place.

No one pops out of the womb thinking, "Hey! I'm a criminal." It takes somebody like you to apply that judgement. For all he knows he's a dog.

Ok, now for the socially acceptable part. Let's say the little pup appears bright-eyed and bushy tailed and the first thing you do is to beat the shit of of him or her. Well, now you've got a different animal entirely. That little moral creature you started with becomes... angry, or withdrawn, or suicidal, or fuckin' crazy, or all of the above, at which point, if I understand you correctly, you kill him? Well, there's all different levels of this stuff and it's hard to know what behavior triggers what response based on some enlightened use of harsh punishment because - if for no other reason - the laws of unintended consequences.

There is no "average" good, or "average" evil, there are 50 shades of each and if I or someone else began to look at YOUR life closely we'd find the same thing. I already know you tried to fuck your dog when you were a boy, but since he was a boy too you failed. This is an extreme example introduced for color I admit but I wouldn't have to look too hard to find something for which shunning might be a bit too tepid of a response.

You are clearly a man who believes that the process of acquisition relieves one of any guilt about how they might have done it. By having stuff - what you describes as your "pile" you are therefore exonerated from any guilt over the many very, very bad things you did to get it. Only... not so much. You clawed your way up to the top floor and now you want to slam the door in the face of those nameless strivers coming up by any means behind you. Oops! Out of space, more to come...

Well, that is something we'll never know. They don't all kill themselves. I'd personally rather be dead than rot in a prison for life. It does not prevent a person from committing a crime; that has been proven. The moral issue with the death penalty is this:
If murder is a crime punishable by death, how can the state commit another murder? In addition to the thousands who have been exonerated from death row after the great work by the Innocence Project. What if they're innocent?
You might have given one reason, they would rather be dead, than rot in prison. Where is it proven that thought of prison, doesn't prevent a crime?? The State does not commit murder. They execute murderers.

Sorry. I meant to say Poland.
That set the stage for everything.
The amount of munitions going to Russia amounted to less than 10 percent of what Russia used in their war with Germany. So, that being the case, how could it have possibly been that the United States armed Stalin, which the most ignorant poster here stated?

Gee that's funny. He didn't end up as president, did he Moonbat. Must have been that pesky Electoral College thingy.

If Obama tried to turn the military against the American people, doubt that they would obey.

But if they did, the Socialist Democrats would never win another election. Of course, there might never be another election.

Gun control, beyond minimal measures, is a losing political issue, a huge loser.
