Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Carol, Who is the leader of the Republican Party in Jan 2013?
I'm not sure what that means, but I was just asking what's the point of Obamacare if states can opt out and anyone can claim "religious objections"?

And how is it fair that the rest of us MUST be insured or pay a penalty?

LIBERAL HYPOCITES wrote:
ee, the left’s totalitarian brand of “gun control” has nothing to do with controlling guns – or bad guys. Rather, it has everything to do with controlling – disarming – the law-abiding masses. It’s not about protecting the innocents. It’s about rendering the innocents defenseless.
Clichés become clichés for a reason, and the old cliché,“If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” rings as true today as it did whenever it was that some homespun fellow coined it.
I was disgusted – physically sickened, in fact – when Barack Obama, president of these Divided States of America, shamelessly exploited the Sandy Hook memorial service to lay the groundwork for his unconstitutional gun-confiscation scheme. It was slimy to the extreme.
I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. That’s what liberals do. Every time some evil nutjob – pumped full of psychotropic drugs by NEA members who don’t want to deal with them – shoots-up the place, the left’s collective mouth begins to water.
“Now, finally, now!” they say, rubbing together soft hands that have never felt the surprising weight of a Sig Sauer 45.“This time we have the political momentum for sweeping gun control. This time the American people will roll over and let us trample the Second Amendment beneath jackbooted executive order or congressional fiat.”
“Let no good crisis go to waste,” right, Rahm?
Well, not so fast, cupcake. As the U.S. Constitution guarantees – and as the Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed –“the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
It ain’t,“should not be infringed,” or “shall finally be infringed once ‘progressives’ have assumed total dominance.”
No,“shall not” means shall not.
There’s only one way to take my guns, slick, and that’s through a constitutional amendment – an amendment that will never happen – ever. Try it any other way and we have a problem.
And this whole “assault weapons ban” angle? Sensationalist propaganda. I prefer to call them “defense weapons.” Contrary to left-wing revisionist pabulum, the Second Amendment’s not about squirrel hunting.
Notice a trend here? What do Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora Colorado’s Century 16 theatre and Columbine have in common? They’re all “gun free zones.”
Places you don’t see mass murder and mayhem? Well, there’s a reason bad guys largely avoid shooting-up gun shows, ranges, households with signs that say:“This home insured by Smith & Wesson” and Texas in general. It’s because they know – even while thick-skulled liberals don’t – that, as recently noted by the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre,“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
Oh, that rather than “gun free zone,” Sandy Hook had a sign reading:“Staff heavily armed and trained. Any attempts to harm those herein will be met with deadly force.” Might some of those beautiful babies have still died if the P.E. coach and four MP5-bearing teachers had ended the bloodshed soon after it began? Perhaps. But how many precious lives could have been saved?
No, you won’t disarm me. You’re not going to neuter my household and tear away my ability to defend my wife and precious babies like Dad did all those years ago.
I really, really hope this president and his authoritarian cohorts in Congress will slow down, take a deep breath and realize that, right now, they’re playing a very dangerous game of chicken. If they try what I think they might, but hope they don’t, I fear this nation – already on the precipice of widespread civil unrest and economic disaster – might finally spiral into to utter chaos, into a second civil war.
But then again, that may be exactly what they have in mind.

"I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history." – Larry Ward, chief organizer of “Gun Appreciation Day”

so is he saying that black people should've had guns so they could shoot white people?

uh...can one of you white folks answer that one? a gun nut would be nice.

Well, the former aid's remark (about Obama not liking people) made the news at the time. She later apologized for it.

Bob Woodward was the liberal's dream journalist when he was criticizing and bringing down republican presidents.

So I wouldn't call it "gossip" per se.

Show us where in the Second Amendment it states you have the right to own any specific 'arms'.
The 'right to bear arms' also allows the Gov't to determine which guns civilians can own.
The founders envisioned muskets, they'd be appalled at the killing power of today's weapons.
Funny how 'original intent' only applies to the words of the Constitution, not to the conditions that were present in the era the Constitution was written.
But you're not intuitive enough to understand.
There just weren't weapons like this available when the Constitution was written.
Just as you can't buy an RPG today, it will soon be that you won't be able to buy an assault rifle in the near future. DUH
No civilian has any need for these weapons of mass death.
These weapons are designed for mass killing, nothing else.
Only cowards feel the need to own one of these. Weak cowards, like all of the mass killers.
Deal with it, nitwit.
If the right is not specifically named in the Constitution then the States get to decide...

Thats why states issue marriage licenses and not nancy pelosi...

Obama is wrong.he tries to set a social system which will cost too much to people like me.indeed we must give money hardly won from our pockets to feed lazy profiteer part of the population.it s amistake.at the opposite he must tighten restrictions to make people feel like working hard to live instead of making them becoming lazy.that s the kind of policy which on a long run will bring our country to decadence.
Again huh! Working in this country is a privilege not a right, but in your eyes at least you see things in opposite spectrum. Let med put it like this, there are 316 million people in america. Dont know the percentage of adults to children, but lets just say there 150 million adults. There aren't 150 million jobs. Instead of pointing thee finger at those that don't have a job, look in the mirror at the man thats been blessed to haver of those jobs! Stupid!

"Punk"?? You are talking tougher and tougher now in safety behind a liberal. Media that would report others saying what YOU do. So let me tell you THIS.

I do not live in the south, but if YOU or any of your liberal ilk come to my home and say you will rape my daughter, I don't need any gun to make the rest of your life a misery. You are now advocating blind aggression and I don't see (as always) any of your ideological buddies disown these comments.

Therefore: facing a threat of having my daughter raped after people like you have me killed, I think I will simply continue to stay armed. Because I know this: when people like you SAY things like this without even trying to hide such intentions, best outcome is that you just do that, but chances are it will be much worse than this.

Boy we are in for some hairy times ahead with people like YOU around..

TV remains the most popular source of news, but its audience is aging:“Only about a third (34%) of those younger than 30 say they watched TV news yesterday; in 2006, nearly half of young people (49%) said they watched TV news the prior day,” the report says.

Twenty-eight percent of people 18-29 reported they watched local news regularly. In 2006, the report notes, that figure was 42 percent.

Interesting, as usual. I'd never even thought that the "shall not be infringed" right was not granted to women or blacks--probably not to any non-property owners as well. Maybe the Native Americans keeping and bearing arms from the day of the 1607 invasion would have been most helpful to the current problems of the nation.
