You actually responded to debil, but this was a very good post. His antics backfired this time.
Your description of liberals hit very close to home. Bull's eye, in fact.
Not the response he anticipated or hoped to elicit.
Oh, I wouldn't say that... what if he got exactly what he expected?

Do NOT expect us to feel sorry for "lone wolf terrorists" (or any other breed of inhumanaity hell bound on hurting others, resembling the same) however. Aint gonna happen.
The EO was put in place before the Patriot Act was made law over one year later. You didn't lie you were just stupid and didn't know.

Scourge?
FBI: More people killed with hammers, clubs, fists than with rifles, shotguns
"According to FBI crime statistics, more people were killed with hammers, knives, clubs and fists than with rifles between 2005 and 2011, Breitbart.com reported Thursday.
"This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats' feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course," Awr Hawkins wrote.
In 2005, for example, 445 murders involved rifles while 608 were committed with clubs or hammers. 905 murders were committed with "personal weapons" like hands and feet. Knives were used in 1,920 murders that year and shotguns were involved in 522 murders. Handguns, however, accounted for 7,565 murders that year.
In 2011, rifles were used in 323 murders, while personal weapons accounted for 726. Blunt objects were used in 496 murders while knives accounted for 1,694. Handguns accounted for 6,220 murders.
Looking at the FBI statistics, one also notices a downward trend in all of the numbers, from the total murders reported, to the number of murders involving firearms.
"While the FBI makes it clear that some of the 'murder by rifle' numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns, it does not change the fact that their annual reports consistently show more lives are taken each year with these blunt objects than are taken with Feinstein's dreaded rifle," Hawkins added.
"The bottom line," Hawkins added, is that a ban on "assault" rifles "is as illogical as it is unconstitutional. We face far greater danger from individuals armed with carpenters' tools and a caveman's stick."
Perhaps Feinstein and her allies would be better off demanding that kitchen knives and bare hands be registered, requiring everyone to undergo training in their proper use.

Let's ban all hammers, clubs, baseball bats, knives, fists, rocks, tire irons and don't forget cars because some people run others over with them on purpose. Then we'll all be safe and everyone will play nice.
More people killed with hammers, clubs, fists,[handguns] than with rifles, shotguns.

so lets fix the handgun problem.

thanks for pointing that out.

First of all, what do you mean by "church friends"? Where the heck did I say a word about "church"? Then voting.. For who?? Romney? A guy that has said everything Obama has in the past and then just had to change position (sssssss) on it all. A wall street operative that probably would keep up 99% of Obamas stuff.
Nope, don't think so.. After the Republicans sabotaged RP's chances so deliberately and gave him a cold and condescending shoulder, why should I even spit at Republicans? Liberals are honestly disgusting , but so many "republicans" are just pretending something to get the same power they now envy the libs for. Many of them are probably going to agree with most big lines in Obama's policy.
Yes, praying is MORE effective to preserve the freedom of America than voting for another empty suit whether or not he has an R or a D behind his name.
Republicans aren't perfect. Never claimed to be. Even if they don't have all the answers and there may be some truth in what you said - the ugly side of politics has to take a back seat when it comes down to the only two choices we have.

Otherwise, you become like Tenzing - wanting something that simply doesn't exist and then picking and choosing which side to root for. In his case, the worst of the two.

At least you aren't going in that direction.

Oh Wait, That doesn't matter that Bush doubled the debt, left office with the worst recession in 80 years, a near financial collapse & two quagmire wars.
Its all that evil communist, Marxist, socialist & numerous other "ists" Obama's fault.
You right whiners are dumber than sh*t.
You keep telling us that its all Boehner's fault these past two years, Why the f*ck not ask Boehner where he got his money.
Where was Romney Ryan going to get their's. You didn't care when you voted for them.
Give it a rest.
Bush isn't here anymore and hasn't been for over 4 years.

Obama isn't 'fixing' anything anyone did and doesn't intend to. Just blames everything on someone else. He has no character. Congress is completely neutered and this gov does not function as it should.

And the fools swallow the pablum.

Obama upped the debt more than ALL Presidents COMBINED and has no intention of stopping.
But that's okay? Still whining about Bush doubling it?

Increased the wars. And that's okay too? All the while all that whining about Bush's 2 wars?

Hypocrite is thy name.

paraphrased:

"If I don't fix anything in my first term, I don't deserve a second"

"I'll put an end to lobbying" (and buying Congress)

" I'll have the most transparent administration"

"Get us out of Iraq (we're still there)"

"Put people to work, jobs are priority"

"Bring jobs back from overseas"

"Invest in wind & solar & alternative energy" (like algae for fuel lol; done but ALL FAILED millions of $$$ loans & grants we the public have to pay back. They (his campaign donors) took the money and ran. Sometimes over to China.)

etc, etc, etc, ad naseum.

Yeah, it's all Bush's fault.

You mean, the Republican party disguised their election campaign with some different clothes and enough fools were attracted to vote them in so they also could feed off the trough and blow up the deficit.
It is CONGRESS that is mostly responsible for this mess and not Obama. They have the sole authority to grant money, but have given Obama everything he wanted so they can get re-elected. Remember, the people who elected them have very short memory.
They had to go along with Obama to preserve the party - the only hope of bringing back some sanity over the next four years.

If Republicans had done nothing - even if it were the right thing to do - they would have been blamed for any and all consequences.

It is House Republicans seeking major reforms and addressing wasteful government spending meeting much resistance in the Senate.

nope. no handgun problem for LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.

Actually, for the amount of those legally carring hanguns, which is in the millions, the crime rate for handguns is rather low.

While the function of judicial review is not explicitly provided in the Constitution, it had been anticipated before the adoption of that document. Prior to 1789, state courts had already overturned legislative acts which conflicted with state constitutions. Moreover, many of the Founding Fathers expected the Supreme Court to assume this role in regard to the Constitution; Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, for example, had underlined the importance of judicial review in the Federalist Papers, which urged adoption of the Constitution.

Hamilton had written that through the practice of judicial review the Court ensured that the will of the whole people, as expressed in their Constitution, would be supreme over the will of a legislature, whose statutes might express only the temporary will of part of the people. And Madison had written that constitutional interpretation must be left to the reasoned judgment of independent judges, rather than to the tumult and conflict of the political process. If every constitutional question were to be decided by public political bargaining, Madison argued, the Constitution would be reduced to a battleground of competing factions, political passion and partisan spirit.

Despite this background the Court's power of judicial review was not confirmed until 1803, when it was invoked by Chief Justice John Marshall in Marbury v. Madison. In this decision, the Chief Justice asserted that the Supreme Court's responsibility to overturn unconstitutional legislation was a necessary consequence of its sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. That oath could not be fulfilled any other way. "It is emphatically the province of the judicial department to say what the law is," he declared.

In retrospect, it is evident that constitutional interpretation and application were made necessary by the very nature of the Constitution. The Founding Fathers had wisely worded that document in rather general terms, leaving it open to future elaboration to meet changing conditions. As Chief Justice Marshall noted in McCulloch v. Maryland, a constitution that attempted to detail every aspect of its own application "would partake of the prolixity of a legal code, and could scarcely be embraced by the human mind ... Its nature, therefore, requires that only its great outlines should be marked, its important objects designated, and the minor ingredients which compose those objects be deduced from the nature of the objects themselves."

http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/su...

and so says the court in DC v Heller....

A constitutional guarantee subject to future judgesÂ’ assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all.

I now its tough for you right whiners. Your party got in charge & left office with the worst economic conditions in 80 years.

I guess if I were such a party first person like most of you here, I would want to hide from that fact.

I also understand just how f*cking stupid you people are.

You claim Obama isn't fixing anything so you are so f*cking stupid that you think we are still losing 750,000 jobs a month with a shrinking economy.

He said combat troops out of Iraq & they are.

So if Obama did such a poor job how did he decimate & totally destroy the Republicans in the past election?
