Barack Obama, our next President

Exactly; and perhaps she may have been prohibited to have guns in the house where a person with a mental disorder resides.

These rightwingers are cold, savage beasts who are incapable of compassion for their fellow Americans.

Unfortunately; until and unless their lives are touched by violence, they think this just happens to "the other people"

you might as well give it up. Eman will never ever admit when he is wrong or uninformed on an issue. Just ask him about the Keystone Pipeline or if the Sec of State is a cabinet position.
Just like he didn't know about the legislation allowing toters to tote in National parks.
Realputz, makes up lies about what people say then bases his argument on those lies. When asked to link to what he claims the poster said, he never does. Yeah, that's you, putz.

And then he would've built a bomb and blew up 30 people in a school building. Or bought/stole an illegal weapon purchased on the street from a brotha. Or he would've drove his car through the playground fence with his vehicle killing 30 kids. Or he would've entered the school with a machete, sword and meat cleaver. Or....

But there are terrorists camps in Mali.
The mission was to get Bin Laden & make sure Afghanistan would no longer be a safe harbor for terrorists.
If all we wanted to do was destroy camps, we could have done that with air strikes alone.
Once Bush invaded, he committed us to nation building.
No, the events in Mali are a civil war between the government and rebels, whereas Afghanistan had no effective government and allowed the terrorists to use their country as a base for attacking the U.S.

Air strikes alone would not have been effective against the terrorist camps.

The nation-building business is B.S.

America is on the cusp of real change not that we submitted to obama's agenda. Remember how Robert Mugabe transformed Rhodesia into Zimbabwe. All isn't bad. America had a great run of over 230 years.

Other than what Obama just did by EO (which is diddly-squat) The gun issue is dead. The house will no pass it and Dingy Hairy says he will not bring anything to the floor that will not pass the house. Sorry libtards.
Was it EA or EO? There's a difference Flacko__what he actually signed were executive actions (proposals) which really aren't much in the grand scheme but you would never know that by the way some of our right leaning, gun lobby funded elected folk reacted.

There were actually a few good ideas in those proposals, reigning in gun shows for instance.

Anything that creates an atmosphere for gun and pawn shop owners to behave more responsibly when dealing/selling weapons is a good step, as it is today in some states, your state for instance, gun shows are bogus outlets for unregistered weapons sales. That's an easy problem to fix.

Nope, you're still the idiot.
Go back an take another look at my post #840367 You will see that is says in part"ÖI can now conceal carry in National Parks and there is conceal carry reciprocity with just about every state between Michigan and TexasÖ."
You'll notice I said "JUST ABOUT" every state. That implies it was a state to state agreement. If I had said EVERY state then I would have been suggesting a national agreement. I accept your apology, moron.
Everyone on here knows you tried to give Obama credit for those rights, when the NRA had much more to do with it. Give credit, where credit is due, Terry.

Not outstanding, OUTSTANDING would be measured by how he got around your lot passing bills & governing the country. But at least the world can sleep comfortable at night knowing they have at a leader who is sane! Not an administration running on the fear factor. I mean what party would run on low taxes and a big a$$ military as the only thing worthwhile to the country. It is that sort of conservatism that has held back America in common sense changes such as gun control, changing to metric, health care, social security, same sex marriage, abortion, God's hand in everything, still minting pennies and the only country on the planet that still votes on a tuesday instead of the weekend. Why because the farmers brought their produce into town on a monday back in the horse & cart days. It's those same laws like being able to bear arms in a time that has long since past that you can't let it go. Thank God all the advances that made the country great have been made by Liberals. Imagine how much better it could be if your lot let go of some all of this BS that belongs to another age. But conservatism by nature is allergic to change their world falls apart when it happens. Just ask any of those countries that have gone back a 1000yrs to Islamic laws. If they did not have oil wells all they would be doing is herding goats, & that it seems is what you crave for.

But not so good in other areas, particularly high-tax states like IL, NY, and CA. Plus, not much of a future in most Rust Belt major cities.

Note the number of states moving to abolish their state income tax.

Same here, lots of new construction, big residental rental projects, bad news is that Walmart appears to be moving into the east end of town where they've never been seen before; they were relegated to the State Rd. 7 area. They opened one in Boynton Beach on Federal Hwy and started building one in Lighthouse Pte. what a mistake, they'll kill all the small businesses.
This goes back to local elections that people don't pay attention to; I doubt that any big box stores will be allowed in my town, but, you never know whose palm is getting greased.

Most of the debt is charged to Obama, including the $1 trillion Porkulus program which accomplished absolutely nothing.

The NRAís new ad is beyond anything weíve seen, in political propaganda terms, in the modern history of this country. The text goes as follows:

Are the presidentís kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but heís just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.

Letís start with the adís broken logic. A, the Obama family has Secret Service protection; B, other American families do not; C, because of this, Obama is an elitist and a hypocrite. Itís pretty ludicrous. Malia and Sasha Obama get lots of things because their father won the presidency. They also have a chauffeur; get to ride on a big fancy airplane free of charge and donít have to endure any TSA-related indignities; live in a beautiful big house rent-free; and so on. By the adís logic, all of these are instances of hypocrisy.

And yet, for pretty much all of modern history until this ad was unveiled yesterday, I donít remember anyone begrudging presidential children their right to the perquisites that come with being the presidentís children. People on the right made fun of Amy Carterís and Chelsea Clintonís physical appearance in tasteless ways. People on the left made fun of the Bush girlsí zest for margaritas and what have you.

But this is a step, or three, beyond that. Itís designed to make people who despise the president despise him even more; and itís designed to make them despise his children, 14 and 11 years old, because they live a cosseted life that you and your kids donít; they are ergo elitist hypocrites just like their father.

Itís not even the logic, though, thatís most disturbing. The main thing here is whatís between the lines; the hot buttons in the pro-gun amygdala the ad is designed to push. Just mentioning the presidentís daughters in an ad full of violent imagery and soundsósilhouettes of assault rifles, profiles of heavily armed soldiers, martial musicóis an invitation to certain viewers to make certain mental connections. Iíll stop there. But itís really a shocking thing.

It is true that a couple recent polls have shown majorities backing the NRA position about putting armed guards in schools, which Obama opposes. This is the point of the ad. Thatís a point that could have been made in any number of ways. But the NRA decided to make it in this particular way. Imagine: A group of people tossed this idea around, kicked its tires, so to speak; someone wrote a script; someone chose the images; someone chose the music; someone in authority said yes, letís do this, letís drag the presidentís daughters into it.

And rememberóthis debate is really just starting in earnest today, as the president unveils his proposals. What will the group prove itself capable of if its back is really up against the wall?

next it'll be the dog whistles. or maybe it just happened.
