Schwarzenegger, a self-described moderate Republican, offered a few thoughts on the platform he thinks his party should maintain. "We need to be a party where people know what we are for, not just what we are against," he explained. That means remembering that "Reagan was the one who dealt with the ozone layer with the Montreal protocol" or that "Nixon almost passed universal healthcare," wrote Schwarzenegger. He also challenged the GOP to provide comprehensive immigration reform and "stay out of people's bedrooms."

When asked to name one current American politician who "best embodies what is good about politics," Schwarzenegger encouraged Redditors to research Democratic Mayor Chuck Reed of San Jose, Calif. and his work on pension reform.

"Even though Congress has an approval rating of 9%(and loses to cockroaches and colonoscopies in polling), there are still some leaders who are doing the people's work instead of the partys' work," wrote Schwarzenegger. "That's political courage to me, being willing to risk your job to choose what's good for the public instead of getting stuck in your ideology."

Eman you're chasing your tail on this. For months I have pointed out that in four years no one has lost a single gun right while Obama has been president, in fact, many have NEW gun rights. In light of recent abuses, Obama, like many other thinking concerned citizens, has decided that something needs to be done to address this problem. Only an ostrich, the NRA or an idiot would bury his head in the sand and hope that the killings would stop without trying something.
That's not what i'm arguing. The nra has more to do with the rights you praise than obama yet you attack them. Give credit where credit is due. Do you understand now?

New Leftist Video Game –“Bullet to the Head of the NRA”

Leftists have put together a new video game where you get to shoot your favorite NRA officials in the head. You can download it online.
Pete M. at Free Republic reported:

I saw something today that upset and deeply disturbed me. I was walking past my son’s bedroom, where he spends all his time on his computer playing those damn games of his. I stopped when I heard the sound of Wayne LaPierre’s voice as he gave his speech about the Newtown massacre. I was surprised my son, who is just 14, was getting involved in anything political, but I was glad he was exposing himself to the right people. I opened the door, intending to tell him how proud I was, when the image on the screen stopped me cold. It was not, as I suspected, a video of Wayne LaPierre’s speech, but was in fact a virtual recreation of the event, a video game. And in the game was a virtual Wayne LaPierre, standing at his podium, giving his speech… with a crosshair over his head. Before I could even utter a word to scold my child, he clicked his mouse. And the virtual Wayne LaPierre’s face disappeared in a spray of blood.

I was horrified. I must have yelled at him for hours. I demanded to know where he got this game, and he showed me the thread on a website called “facepunch”. You can see it for yourself here.

The libs think it’s funny.

Meanwhile… The liberal media is outraged that the NRA released a phone app target shooting game this week.

"Oh yeah this'll go far to disprove people that video games make people violent right? I mean there's no way that anyone could go "Hmm these people made a game where you murder NRA members well maybe there actually is something to people saying games make you violent" right??"

Well, to be fair the car he was chasing and finally shot the back window out of was a Mercedes so there were certainly mitigating circumstances here. Besides, the other guy cut him off and gave him the finger. You have to draw the line somewhere don't you?

who sets the limits on those rights?

oh yeah, it's all Obama.

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.

Yes, this is due to the fact that there are so many sicko racist killers threatening their lives since even before he was elected the first time.
Take the Obama children out of Sidwell Friends and the school is still an armed fortress.

and it's cool if we research Mr. Fat Cat Lapierre and get the dirt on his family? and that whole board of directors will be fair game. i bet all of their kids go to public schools. i guess we better find out.....
I will grant that nobody in their right mind would send their children to the public schools in Washington, D.C., but that is unrelated to security, at least from outside forces.

The problem is the objections of the left to other schools providing armed security.

We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. Miller said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those “in common use at the time.”

We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of “dangerous and unusual weapons.”

http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/07-290....

let's remember the context....

'It's ok to carry handguns because they're not “dangerous and unusual weapons.”'

just try to dance around that one.

I understand and agree. There's no question that the NRA has done more to protect my gun rights than Obama, I've never intended to make that argument. My point is that the NRA has portrayed Obama as an enemy to gun owners, that is simply not true. Many people believe that the NRA speaks for ALL gun owners and that also is simply not true. There are some reasonable restrictions that can be imposed on gun owners that MAY save lives, such as a national background check, 10 max clip and a ban on assault type weapons. Just for the record, G.W. Bush and Reagan were also in favor of banning assault type weapons but never attacked like this.

Sure, go ahead.

We should also publish interactive maps showing the homes of all members of Congress, all members of state legislatures, and all government employees, together with their salaries.

Since Obama has been President the Supreme Court has ruled NO city can ban a Right to own a handgun and Obama has signed into LAW the Right to carry on Federal Lands and on trains.
The problem is this Hatred toward Obama is part of a new American Taliban movement that no longer wants majority rule or free elections.

1)Unemployment under Bush was 3.9% to 6.9%. Ran between 4% to 5% during most of his 8 years. Highest he ever had was 7.4% in 12/08. Obama's went as high as 10.1% in 10/09 and remained over 9% until 2012.
2)Businesses are going bankrupt regularly and cutting back on employees, raises, etc.
3)Obama has submitted budgets but not a single Republican or Democrat has EVER voted for passing one.
4)Obama has had 4 years to make vast changes to cut spending. He has thrown billions to green companies and research. Most every company has either gone bankrupt or on the verge of doing so. All he does is spend with no plans of reducing it.
5)As indicated in #1, unemployment has become an issue under Obama.
Obama is a failure! Four more years will be devastating for all Americans.
1) The recession started in the 4th quarter of 2007 and is the cause of the unemployment. The rate was over 7.5 when he left office. To blame Obama for the effects of the Bush recession is beyond pathetic.

2) Most businesses are doing OK. Corporate profits hit a record in December.

3) The budgets submitted by Presidents are rarely diretly put up for a vote. They typically go to Congress where it the budgets are modified. Congress put up two of Obama's budgets only as apolitical game. An informed person would know this.

4) Stimulus spending has been done by Presidents in the past & is a valid method of fighting recessions. Again, an informed person would know this. You comment on green companies is a blatant lie.

Slashing spending before the economy recovers would plunge us into recession.

5) Why is unemployment even being discussed?? Because Republicans went wild on spending & plunged us into the worst recession in 80 years. Republicans like Boehner, Canter, McConnell & your buddy Paul Ryan.

Did you note "poop" ignored your question as to when is bio/fantasy would be released? Just another of his stories he has to tip toe around. You note how he is always referring to adult diapers? He uses them, he has an attendant who changes said diapers for "poop" several times a day at his rehab center.
