how's that illegal problem working for CA?

'As the chief executive officer of the city of Los Angeles since 2005, Mayor Villaraigosa has presided over an alarming atrocity of epic dimensions for an urban area; an evolving crisis involving thousands of fatalities every year with heavily regulated government-registered “weapons” that do not involve guns.

“L.A.’s Bloody Hit-and-Run Epidemic” was an investigative exposé reported by the L.A. Weekly one week before the Connecticut school shootings in December 2012. The subtitle of the cover story investigation by journalist Simone Wilson accurately describes the urban catastrophe as:“The city ignores a crisis of car-as-weapon crime in the streets.”

Widespread wave of hit-and-run fatalities

The Los Angeles Police Department records an astounding 20,000 hit-and-run crashes every year, which is a staggering 48 percent of all annual vehicle accidents in the city, according to the L.A. Weekly investigation. The percent of hit-and-run collisions nationwide are approximately 11 percent of all crashes while in Los Angeles they account for almost half, nearly five times the national statistics.

Hit-and-run crashes resulting in major injuries and fatalities are an astonishing thirteen times the number of homicides in Los Angeles – reported at 298 for 2012 – as reported in the L.A. Weekly investigation:

““According to data collected by the state, some 4,000 hit-and-run crashes a year inside L.A. city limits, including cases handled by LAPD, California Highway Patrol and the L.A. County Sheriff, resulted in injury and/or death. Of those, according to a federal study, about 100 pedestrians died; the number of motorists and bicyclists who die would push that toll even higher.”

For Villaraigosa and his political legacy, the truly embarrassing fact is that the L.A. Weekly writes,“a hit-and-run crime wave that has marched on for years while mayors, chiefs of police and other city leaders ignore it or remain ignorant of it.”

While some may quibble and engage in hair-splitting rhetoric about the comparison of vehicular crime to gun-related killings, to the victims and their families in Los Angeles the ultimate result is the same: the untimely and tragic death of a human being.

The difference between hit-and-run casualties and firearms is found more in the statistics than in the tools of destruction. In Los Angeles, 4,000 were killed or maimed by hit-and-run drivers while the LAPD reports only 836 gang-related victims were injured or died from gunshots in 2012. Yet

Mayor Villaraigosa goes on national television to politicize guns while remaining completely silent on his record of abysmal failure to protect Los Angeles residents from the hit-and-run crime wave on his city’s streets.'

The CNN report was in 2003. You should read it.
But the speech that Bush gave to the nation the day the Iraq war started had to do with Nuclear weapons. "We can't wait for the answer to come in the form of a mushroom cloud". Of course the story changed for years on why we were there. The big answer is that of the 33 nations the US has bombed and/or invaded since 1945 have ALL been for nothing. Some day maybe you war mongers will learn that. The LAST war the US has been in to "protect" our freedom ended in 1945. All others have been BS.

Sweetie, the next Republican President is probably in diapers now (I mean he's an infant, not somebody like you), and you'll be mouldering in the ground when he's getting lessons in scooping with both hands and eating raw flesh. He'll be proficient even before he gets his first set of teeth. The punching days are over; now it's gonna be tear right into the flesh while they're still conscious.
We Republicans are going to have to do something, big and bad and, well, as you say, "mind-numbing" to get the attention of the fools who put this Kenyan in the White House. I think you know this is code for "Civil War II," except the south is even more dumbed down than it was for the first one. We're just going to make up in savage stupidity what we lack in intellect. Like the Debil suggested, all we have to do when the war starts is, whatever the Government tells us to do, we do the opposite. No problem, I say ...

Morning Joe’ hosts eviscerate ‘sick in the head’ NRA for targeting Obama’s kids

The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday ripped into the National Rifle Association (NRA) for using President Barack Obama’s daughters in an advertisement opposing new gun safety measures.

On Tuesday, the pro-gun lobbying group sparked outrage by releasing an ad calling Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for opposing guns in schools while allowing his own daughters to be protected by armed bodyguards. The ad comes one month after 20 children were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and just days after the NRA released a first-person shooting game for Apple’s iPhone and iPad targeted at children as young as four.

After reviewing the ad on Wednesday, MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle immediately denounced it as “political pornography.”

KILL PEOPLE NOT GUNS!The Spanish language television news network Univision unleashed a bombshell investigative report on Operation Fast and Furious Sunday evening, finding that in January 2010 drug cartel hit men slaughtered students with weapons the United States government allowed to flow to them across the Mexican border.

“On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez,” according to a version of the Univision report in English, on the ABC News website.

“Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.”

“What’s wrong with these people? Putting out apps that 4 year olds can play on the anniversary of the Newtown murders and now putting out an ad talking about the president’s daughters.”

“They are out of step, out of the mainstream, totally out of sync with what’s going on in our society and, quite frankly after seeing that, I think that some of the people who run that thing are sick,” Brzezinski agreed.“I really do. I think they are sick in the head. And I’m serious. I’m embarrassed right now. I’m embarrassed for our country, that we have a section of society, the NRA, which should have a voice certainly trying to protect a constitutional amendment. I understand that. There’s a really legitimate debate there,[but] they just took it, they just brought it down to the lowest, most base level. I don’t even want to — it’s now fringe.”

“They are now a fringe organization with millions of mainstream Americans, gun, hunting guys and women that love to hunt,” Scarborough noted.

Hard-liners Don’t Speak for All Conservatives

A new Post/ABC News poll confirms that the hard-liners don’t speak for most Republicans and conservatives:

Still, a substantial proportion of Republicans say they have no opinion on the pick, and nearly as many Republicans support Hagel as oppose him. The numbers suggest the party’s base is hardly as incensed by Hagel’s selection as the GOP’s Senate conference — at least for now.

The difference between Republican support for the nomination (28%) and opposition to it (35%) is not that great. Among conservatives, there is likewise less support (31%) than opposition (37%), but considering the overwhelming, overt hostility to Hagel from many conservative media outlets it is striking that nearly a third of conservatives supports his confirmation. It’s worth noting that Republican and conservative opinion nationwide is almost evenly divided on the Hagel question, and nearly two-thirds of Republicans and conservatives don’t oppose him. The overall opposition to Hagel’s nomination is 24%. Republican hawks are in a political fight of their own making that gains them nothing and puts them on the wrong side of public opinion.

Stuff made 10-15 years previous. Stuff the Iraqis said were destroyed.

My God, we did not invade Iraq because of a pile of rusted, out of date gas canisters.

When will you right whiners ever admit that Bush wanted war with Iraq & searched for any excuse to do it including grossly exaggerating certain intel while hiding other.
