That s not what I said.

I said if he hit 25% of your targets & shoot 100 rounds, you hit 25 people.

Try to keep up.

Here, here!! or is it Hear, Hear? Totally agree with you.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, Reince Pubis is busy at work:

Earlier this week, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus endorsed a Republican plan to rig the next presidential election to make it nearly impossible for the Democratic candidate to win the White House, no matter who the American people vote for. The election-rigging plan, which would allocate electoral votes by congressional district rather than by states as a whole in a handful of states that consistently vote for Democratic presidential candidates, would have allowed Mitt Romney to narrowly win the Electoral College last November despite losing the popular vote by nearly four points.

On Monday, seven Pennsylvania Republican state representatives introduced a bill to make this vote-rigging scheme a reality in their state. Under their bill, the winner of Pennsylvania as a whole will receive only 2 of the state’s 20 electoral votes, while “[e]ach of the remaining presidential electors shall be elected in the presidential elector’s congressional district.”

Pennsylvania is a blue state that voted for the Democratic presidential candidate in every single presidential race for the last two decades, so implementing the GOP election-rigging plan in Pennsylvania would make it much harder for a Democrat to be elected to the White House. Moreover, because of gerrymandering, it is overwhelmingly likely that the Republican candidate will win a majority of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes even if the Democrat wins the state by a very comfortable margin.

When will you retire? The traditional answer may be 62 or 65, but an influential group of business CEOs is pushing a plan to gradually increase the full retirement age to 70. "The recommendations are based on what's best for the country," says Business Roundtable President John Engler. His group's plan would raise the full retirement age for both Social Security and Medicare. The changes would not affect anyone is now 55 and older. "Implementing changes now and implementing them gradually over a long period of time realizes dramatic savings down the road without putting an impact on individuals," says Engler.

By making the age older and older this will increase the anger towards SS and Medicare which they basically want to get rid of. And they are hoping people will die on the job before they can take advantage of either.

Can anyone imagine the Repub outrage and DBs post had this came from Obama? The Repubs would have been typing as fast as possible talking about Freedom and Rights and Communist and every other "ism" they could have come up with.

Text, please. I'd like to read it.
Your indoctrinated party line mantra just doesn't prove any point.
Post the text from the executive order.
Then, post text from the Constitution that gives the president the authority to write his own laws and issue edicts to the American people.
This "Bush did it, too" party line excuse doesn't wash.
Perhaps if Obama had ever read the Constitution in his life, he'd know a little about what he can and cannot do, instead of looking like an ignorant buffoon all the time.

No one has ever tried to take anyone's second amendment rights away.That's an excuse only, and meant to scare people. Republicans are basically a cowardly bunch to begin with. They want us to fight wars everywhere just as long as it's someone elses son or daughter doing the dying..Take Fox station for example...You would be hard pressed to find one military man or woman that works there...Yet they are war mongers galore. Republicans are getting less popular daily and they can only blame their own fanaticism.

Ghostie is a legend in his own mind. Name ons svent where an automatic weapon was used. Automatic weapons can be own by private citizens but the paperwork to do so is burdensome. Most are for collectors of weapons. They ,for the most part, would never fire the weapon.

I second that emotion! They're all hypocrits!

I read some comments about the Sandy relief; someone said his neighbor was a die hard teapartyer, but drove 100 miles to charge his laptop so he could claim his $300.00 Sandy relief money!
That just about sums it up.
