Wow, 19 brilliant judge-its for this silly rant???? You exposed yourself for the phony liar you are with this one.
The answer to your question is very simple. You object to guns being used to kill animals but you defend the right to own them. Other than plinking cans, any reasonable person would deduce that you are condoning their use to shoot people. Yes or no? If no, then what other possible use could you explain for guns?

Do you think the slate is clean when a President is elected?

So, are you saying that in four years obama was unable to turn things around and now his only plan is to raise the debt? Interesting.
If you eliminated all discretionary spending except Defense you'd still have a deficit thereby continuing to increase the debt. The onus is on congress to reduce Defense and entitlement spending.

Bigotry ,racism and hatred are far more advanced sign of ignorance than is spelling. Actually spelling has absolutly nothing to do with ones intelligence, a number of the smartest people in the world were terrible spellers, including Einstein, F.D.R, Kennedy and a host of others. So as always old Galt is wrong and clueless once again. Maybe we should simply pity the fool...
Well, lets see if he goes hog wild on Mme. Tourrette from KY!!

Galt has his own fluid version of the Constitution, here's what ours says:

guess what pops up when you search....NRA 1st.

National Rifle Association’s First Amendment Sellout

The National Rifle Association just sold out your First Amendment right to participate in the democratic process. Sources on the Hill tell RedState that House Republican members are “furious” at the National Rifle Association (NRA) for negotiating a special provision exempting the NRA from a new campaign finance reform measure racing through Congress.

2010...Erick Erickson....

There are few organizations purportedly on the side of freedom that aggravate me more than the National Rifle Association.

In fact, these days I cringe when I see good conservatives with their lifetime member sticker from the NRA on the back of their cars. I support Gun Owners of America, which is a consistent and uncompromising defender of the second amendment, not a weak little girl of an organization protecting itself while throwing everyone else under the bus.

But that’s what the National Rifle Association is doing. You and I are willing to stand together because we know we either stand together or hang separately. The NRA legislative strategy in the past few years has been to hang everybody else so they can be the last man standing — more interested in maintaining the veneer of bipartisanship than actually standing up for the second amendment.

The Democrats are trying to come up with a new law to respond to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision on campaign finance rules. The NRA had objected to the Democrats’ proposal, but then secured a carve out for themselves from the legislation and have dropped their objection.

So if you are a small organization that just started up to defend freedom, you are screwed. But if you’ve been collecting a large file of members for decades off the image of Charlton Heston while repeated screwing conservatives, you’ll be safe.

This is just the NRA not wanting competition for itself. If they were really committed to freedom, let alone the second amendment, they should be encouraging more freedom loving, second amendment loving organizations to rise and fight. Instead, they are collaborating with the left to shut out competition.

Yes, what has he turned around?
Has the recession really ended? Not according to many economist, actually they say we are entering another one. More people than ever live in poverty and more on foodstamps than ever.
The job losses ended? Only if you believe the numbers that leave out underemployed and those that gave up and not on unemployment any longer.
The country is looking at default, well, unless the obama can use threats and scare tactics to push for higher debt ceilings.
And now obama is having to face a global financial problem.
And much of obamas recent upbeat data is misleading. The government took $2.33 of new debt to produce $1.00 of economic activity [GDP]. Whatever happened to the Keynesian theory that every government stimulus dollar produces $2-$3 of economic activity?
But I can see your point of not wanting to blame obama, I mean so far he has been impotent.
Jeff, you're just buying propaganda. For instance you refer to the U6 unemployment rate which has been dropping faster than the "official" U3 rate. The U6 is down 2.7% from its 17.1% peak while the U3 dropped 2.2% from its peak of 10%.

Don't take Fox's or anybody else's word for it, check it out for yourself:

Their handlers can't afford to divorce debt or deficit from spending, it wrecks their whole narrative.
