Barack Obama, our next President

Right to own a gun.

Can anyone explain the subtle differences?

No one is on the side of killers, Lily. This is the kind of statement that turns rational people against the liberal craziness.
There are millions of guns out there. You don't think criminals won't find a way to get one even if you take away as many as possible from law abiding citizens?
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.

Wild West Era Had Stricter Gun Control Than America Has Today
Despite the exaggerated violent stereotypes perpetuated by dime novels and Hollywood, the so-called Wild West wasn't quite as violent as we've been led to believe over the years.
Take, for example, the 1881 "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral," the most famous shootout in the history of the Old West. A mere three people died in this gunfight---an event that would be barely noticed in today's blood-soaked America, where many thousands of people are gunned down annually.
And yet, the O.K. Corral shootout has come to symbolize a wild, lawless West. It's part of the mythology of America that NRA gun lovers claim captures the "rugged individualism" and essence of what our nation is all about (as they furiously work to oppose any and all gun legislation as downright "un-American").
There's only one problem: the image of the Old West that exists in the popular imagination is largely fictional. It's all part of a myth that was created in the late 19th century by the dime novel authors, who enthralled their breathless, eager readers back East. The "Wild West" fantasy created by the dime novel was later taken up by generations of Hollywood films.
Any serious historian will tell you that the truth about the Wild West is rather more mundane. The Wild West era, in fact, was considerably less bloody than the violent reputation it has garnered over the years.
The "Wild West" was populated by a different class of people than the Chicago ghetto.

Inaugurations are historical events, not pep rallies. Opponents of the leader should be just as welcome as supporters.

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.
