Obama has managed to marginalize the right wing as fanatical nutjobs on yet another issue.
Who would have thought our first black president would single handedly destroy the Republican Party.
Pure genius!
Applause!!! Carol's still trying to make her case that the President doesn't like people!! Oh? Look how many people voted for him? I love this guy, he was the opening speaker when I went to see the President here:

What’s your reaction to the angry people who are flooding your restaurant’s Yelp page with bad reviews because you hugged the president?
You see the good and bad in people. That’s what’s wrong with our country. I tell people, whether you’re Republican or Democrat, he’s both of our president. He should be treated with respect, and that’s what’s wrong with our country right now. I don’t think it has to be that way. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, and you don’t have to be ugly with yours. You know what I’m trying to say? You have the right to do what you want to do. I’m all for free speech—don’t get me wrong there. But if you don’t have nothing good to say, then don’t say nothing. You know what I’m trying to say? You’re entitled to your opinion. Exercise your vote. That’s the bottom line.


And you’re a registered Republican?
I am registered Republican, believe it or not. That’s why I think there’s all the uproar.


Who are you voting for in this election?
I’m going to vote for Obama. The reason why I voted for him last time is I liked his enthusiasm. I like that he tried to get young people to vote, and involved in community service and politics. I just thought he was the right man at the right time. When he came in today with that same enthusiasm when he came in initially. I still think he’s the right guy at the right time.

What's next for you gun idiots, Laser guns, how about we all have our own A bomb. The inability of those on the right to realize that they are being programmed and used daily is mind boggling. And old flack thinks that all others are stupid. Moron personified.

That is not the argument you & others have been making, flacktard.
You know the argument I am talking about.
Its the guns don't kill, people do argument.
Guns are not protected by the Constitution. Guns don't have rights.
Guns are regulated more than alcohol

Take an "assault weapon", remove the pistol grip, and the firearm is no longer an assault weapon.
That's how the language in the original assault weapons ban read thanks to the efforts of NRA lobbyists.

The muzzle velocity of the Bushmaster .223 is roughly the same as the muzzle velocity of the M-16/AR-15. That the military version can be fired on full automatic is a moot point, both versions can fire at high rates as semi automatics.

buffoon....

Executive Order 10730: Desegregation of Central High School (1957)

This executive order of September 23, 1957, signed by President Dwight Eisenhower, sent Federal troops to maintain order and peace while the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, AR, took place.

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php...

and despite all the noise from people like DB, some white folks took one on the chin.

you should see the list of executive orders.

the first George was also a 'buffoon'. and didn't he help write the Constitution? imagine that.

I'm pretty sure we all know someone, or have an odd relative that collects guns; I have a weird cousin that has an effing arsenal of weapons in his basement! No one knew about it until he hosted a family reunion a number of years ago! He brought one of my male cousins down into the basement and showed him! We were all creeped out after that, needless to say, no reunions were held there again; plus his son looked a little on the off side as well.
They are a powder keg, who knows what will set them off.
There is a difference between a weapon collector and a gun collector.

No! Appears some on the right wing are on the side of the criminals if they can make a profit from selling guns, even if our children are killed as a result.
The problem is squishy lefties like you making excuses for violent criminals and allowing the mentally ill to walk the streets.

The Aurora theater killer should already have been tried and executed.

Same for the Muslim Army killer.

So your solution to this problem is to do nothing? There are millions because gun nuts want no restriction. The gun mentality of this nation is beyond insane. We have more hand guns than the next 17 nations combined, when is enough enough? We have over 3,000 children killed by guns annually, so we should do nothing about that either.
The NRA has one purpose and that is to make money, they couldn't care less about the constitution or your rights. They are heartless uncaring heathens who obstruct lie with an agenda and to gain support of the less intelligent in our society. Enter Republicans who are of the very same mold.
Obama's gun control plans are DOA in Congress.

Even Dirty Harry is opposed, will not bring a bill to the floor.

Bah, she wasn't at both of Reagan's inaugurations. He set us down this path lo those many years ago, big government, deficit spending, massive debt, world's police, amnesty for illegals, corporate deregulation, demise of the middle class, etc etc etc
