Typical (wrong) liberal fool.
Carol is correct. This PDUPONT guy is a real piece of work. He's the type of person we do NOT want owning a gun.
PDupont should ask himself WWJD?

After the horror of 9/11, I don't think turning the other cheek applies here.

Could be wrong.

By the way, President Theodore Roosevelt defended the practice. "The enlisted men began to use the old Filipino method: the water cure," he wrote in a 1902 letter. "Nobody was seriously damaged."

Wonder if Obama would have threatened to prosecute good ole' Teddy?

Also, would PDupont pour water up someone's nose if he knew he or a loved one would be decapitated otherwise?

It's really all about perspective - or priorties.

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.
Did the NRA sign the bill into law??

Did the NRA introduce the Legislation??

I thought not.

Just more of your baseline stupidity.

So they supported it. So what??

You give fringe groups like the NRA far too much credit.

The NRA has few dues paying members. I know this for a fact.

I and thousands of others got free NRA memberships when we purchased guns at Cabela's. I'm sure other gun stores did the same.

Meaning, the NRA puffs up its membership by giving out free memberships.

There'a likely less than 2 million actual nitwits who joined the NRA on purpose.

In a nation of over 300 million citizens, NRA members are merely a rounding error.

So why exactly is everyone fighting about abortion again? A Pew poll released Wednesday found that not only do a majority of Americans want to keep abortion legal, but also that just 44 percent of those under 30 even knew the landmark Roe v. Wade case dealt with right to terminate a pregnancy. As the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that decriminalized abortion approaches, the poll found that 63 percent of respondents said they did not want the court to overturn the decision—a number unchanged from 10 or even 20 years ago, despite numerous efforts by many states to limit abortion rights. In fact, the poll found that a majority, 53 percent, of those surveyed said that “abortion is not that important compared to other issues.”

By lack of respect for human life you mean starting a war based on lies and deception?

Everyone on here knows you're a habitual liar.

We've seen it all too often.

Emaam lies and says stupid things, then lashes out at whoever calls him on his juvenile Jump Street ignorance. What a loser!!

The reason for your support of lyin' Herman Cain is obvious.

You admire a good liar.(It even rhymes)

On Jan. 1, 2014, one of the reforms scheduled to take place under Obamacare is the individual mandate:
Most individuals will be required to carry health insurance and most employers (50 or more employees) must provide coverage. Both individuals and employers will face penalties for non-compliance.
But this is the part I don't get.
Certain groups will be exempt from the individual mandate including American Indians, those with religious objections and those who would face financial hardship by purchasing health insurance, i.e. insurance coverage costing more than 8 percent of your income.
Five questions (for starters):
1. What prevents anyone from claiming to have a religious objection?
2. How many government paper pushers will be needed to keep track of who gets what?
3. How is it fair to those who earn just above the financial hardship cutoff line who will still be struggling with the cost of insurance?
4. Who will pay for all those who are exempt because of religious objections or financial hardship?
5. If the SCOTUS ruled Obamacare allows states to opt out of healthcare exchanges without losing current Medicaid funding, what's the point?
As Greta Van Susteren pointed out: The whole idea of everybody being in is everybody's contributing to lower the cost of health care. So if everybody opts out - plus, we've got the problem that the president through the HHS has issued thousands of waivers - everyone's jumping ship! They're going to leave about five of us left standing paying for this!
Which leads back to question #4.
(1) Anybody who is Christian won't get a waiver.(2) A lot. Mostly at the IRS.(3) It's not about fairness. It's about government control.(4) The same people who pay for them now.(5) Control. The eventual goal is government run single payer. Never ever forget this. The most dangerous attempt at a power grab since Stalin and Mao.

Well they had them hiding under their desks in the event of an atom bomb attack back in the 1950's(Flack and a few others still living there) so I suppose a zigzagging class makes about as much sense.

Isn't that the kind of people Obama sought out in college?

Like-minded people, I mean?

In his book, he wrote: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. THE MARXIST PROFESSORS and structural feminists."

Oh, yes, he did say that...

I agree, it's all very sad. Giving the total mess left behind after eight years of incompetence Obama has managed to straighten the ship, with absolutly no help from the Republicans. The Republicans profess to love our military, our children and country yet they do nothing for the betterment. How anyone can be and remain blind to this is mind boggling. You have a good day lily.

Liberals aren't known for common sense. PDupont is a textbook example of one of these Mr. Magoo types.
