You drunken, unemployed, uneducated fleabagger, no where have I even mentioned assault weapons, so wtf are you babbling about?
I happen to be in favor of new restrictions on the capacity of guns.
So we can assume that you ARE in favor of banning assault weapons. Or is this just a rambling rant from a drunken, unemployed, uneducated tea bagger moron?

Speaking of mandates, Bush won the 2004 race with 3.6 million more votes than Kerry.
Obama recieved 5 million more votes than Rmoney.
Put another way,Obama recieved 5 million more votes in 2012 than Bush had in 2004!!
65 Million for Obama's mandate.
59.2 million for Bush's mandate.
Kerry recieved 55.7 million votes. The margin for Bush was 3.6 million votes.
Yet Bush claimed a mandate.
"CNN host Tucker Carlson, co-host of CNN's Crossfire: "[N]obody has done it since 1988. The president wins reelection with a majority of the vote. It is a mandate. What will he do with it now?[CNN, Crossfire, 11/3/04]"
Funny how your side measures mandates!!
Obama beat Rmoney by 5 million votes, recieved more votes than Bush vs Kerry.
If Bush had a mandate, as he claimed, Obama has a double mandate!!
You're not very good at this, ya know.
You look stupid when you claim Obama didn't win a mandate.
You may have a point.

Difference being Bush didn't represent only those who pushed him over the top.

First sentence is not true; President Carter said it well: the election of a black man as President has brought what was a simmering cauldron of racism to a rolling boil.
Why shouldn't we talk about it?
Why shouldn't they talk about it?

Hey Lincoln, why were you planning on driving all the freed slaves to Central America? Been curious about that one for awhile.
Original Lincoln proposed many policies in a society where only white men could vote.
Emancipation Proclamation and 13th Amendment seem to speak his intentions.
Books have been devoted to this question.

"Assault weapon" is a popular, but largely meaningless term, based primarily on appearance of the firearm.

By the way, dumbass Dave, getting oil from our 51st state is just as good from the standpoint of national security as getting it from the other 57.
Now, if only we could eliminate union obstacles so that Alaskan oil could be shipped to the West Coast.
The US oil EXPORTS are at the highest levels since 1949. Exxon is going to build one of the largest natural gas ports in the gulf to EXPORT all the new found gas in America. Seems like you Repubs got suckered on that Drill Baby Drill deal..
.
All that new gas that was suppose to stop the oil imports but yet Exxon is shipping it to China. Suckers!!!!!!!!!

Alas Mitt Romney did, "47% follies"

Democrats protect their base but have a big tent party.

Republicans may expand their tent, or fold the tent?

Any weapon that is not pump action, lever action, bolt action or single shot would/should be defined as an assault weapon. You have a problem with that definition?

You are correct with respect to Alaskan oil, the export of which to foreign ports was prohibited in 1977 under the Alaska Pipeline enabling legislation.
However, the Jones Act prohibits the use of foreign flag vessels between Alaska and the US West Coast for all other shipping, increasing costs for Alaska residents and businesses.
ok, so how are you tying that to unions? That doesn't prevent us ships from bringing it?

Trying to blame unions is simply pathetic

I agree, Texas politics deserves "third world" status and should be flushed. I can't imagine living here and raising a family in this conservative brain dead environment.

I'll repeat it, get your nurse to read it to you s-l-o-w-l-y.
I'm in favor of limiting the capacity of magazines and weapons.
Nothing to do with the demorat authored mortgage crisis however.
You're in favor of "limiting the capacity of weapons" to do what? Fire without lever action? Fire without being pumped? Fire without bolt action? That's banning assault/semi-automatic weapons. Or, is it that you have no idea what the hell you're talking about?
You're exposed waxturd/goober... you're the only right wing moron that hates guns but is afraid to stand up to the NRA. Pretty lame to take the "ban magazines" no balls position, if that's what you're trying to say. What a puss.
