The Hitler gun control lie
Gun rights activists who cite the dictator as a reason against gun control have their history dangerously wrong
If you’re going to impose a brutal authoritarian regime on your populace, better to disarm them first so they can’t fight back.
Unfortunately for LaPierre et al., the notion that Hitler confiscated everyone’s guns is mostly bogus. And the ancillary claim that Jews could have stopped the Holocaust with more guns doesn’t make any sense at all if you think about it for more than a minute.
More Warsaw ghetto-type uprisings would have created a substantial diversion to the Nazi war effort and the Holocaust. The Jews would have died in the end, but fighting on their feet instead of crouching in gas chambers.

A lesson in just how quickly the conservatives will eat their young, or anyone that isn't as flaky, fearful and paranoid as they are. Good little Storm Trooper.
the lesson is that by voting for The One again, America may be as doomed as conservatives. the other lesson is that Democrats don't mind indebting their young to third world status as long as we have A Village to Raise Baby, free contraception, open borders and do not offend Muslims.

'The Brokest Nation in History has just told the rest of the world that it is incapable of serious course correction–and around the planet prudent friends and enemies will begin planning for a post-American order.

So at some point reality will intervene–either in the form of total societal collapse or, one hopes, something marginally less convulsive.

The first responsibility of conservatives between now and 2016 is to have an adult conversation with the citizenry–the one that Mitt Romney chose to eschew in favor of vague jobs promises punctuated by bold assertions that “I believe in America.” So what? What matters is whether reality still believes in America.

And, when reality strikes, will Americans turn to conservatism?

The evidence from November is not reassuring. Romney dusted off the old surefire winner–”Ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago?”–and took it to read:“The economy’s dead. Vote Mitt.” A decisive chunk of lower-middle-class America agreed with him on the first part, and acted on its logic:“You’re right. So I’m voting for the party of endlessly extended unemployment insurance, universal food stamps, and increased Social Security disability enrollment.” If 1.7 percent growth is the new normal, this constituency will metastasize.

As his post-mortem observations to donors confirmed, Romney’s leaked “47 percent” aside is indicative of the way he thinks, and not a small thing.

Indeed, it’s a betrayal of core conservative morality: from “Teach a man to fish” to “There’s no point even bothering to try to teach 47 percent to fish.”

The Democrats used their brutal Romney-gives-you-cancer/ Ryan-offs-your-granny advertising in Ohio as bad cop to the good cop of Obama’s cultural cool. The trouble for conservatives is we have no good cop...'

These goobers think they have the right to know everything, Hillary gave a good smackdown yesterday, especially regarding blokes funding by the republicans. McCain made a fool of himself as usual. What a blowhard, and Rand Paul is a dope.
You rang? Hehe... I agree. Applause! The government should keep us in the dark about everything, especially when people die and it's obvious government failed. I have my Democrat hat on today.

Socialist Democratic is a doctrine, fostered by delusional, Illogical people, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of crap by the clean end.

Yes. Walk up to a door in Representative Metcalfe's district in Western Pennsylvania, tell them you're from the federal government and have come to confiscate their "illegal" weapon.

Adios, brother.

The delusion of the day is to enrich all classes at the expense of Americans Freedom and liberty; it is to generalize plunder under pretense of organizing it. Now, legal plunder may be exercised in an infinite number of ways. Plunder comes in an infinite multitude of plans for organization; Tariffs, protection, perquisites, gratuities, encouragements, progressive taxation, free public education, right to work, right to profit, right to wages, right to assistance, right to instruments of labor, gratuity credit, on and on. And it is all these plans, taken as a whole, with what they have in common, Legal Plunder, known as Communisms.
a whole lot of Republican plunder.

That's because everybody stopped driving their cars, or switched to electric kiddie cars.

The fact is that the level of solar activity has a far greater effect on global temperatures than any actions by man.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who got into a heated exchange with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a Senate hearing on the deadly Benghazi attack, on Thursday walked back his accusation that Clinton showed emotion to get out of answering tough questions.

"I did not accuse of her crying, no," Johnson said on CNN. "I was responding to a question, Soledad. I probably speculated, and I shouldn't have."

Rand Paul says Clinton's outburst a 'valid point'
Sen. Rand Paul - the Kentucky conservative who told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday he would have fired her for her response to the Benghazi attacks if he was president - acknowledged later the top diplomat had made a valid point when she angrily denounced Republicans focused on the administration's response to the attack.
Clinton was responding to Sen. Ron Johnson, a tea party backed Wisconsin Republican, who questioned Clinton about what he described as members of the administration "purposely misleading" the American people
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans," Clinton shot back. "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided they'd go kill some Americans?"
Her fists shaking, she continued: "What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator."
Paul, who like Johnson was backed by the tea party during his bid for Senate in 2010, said after the hearings concluded that Clinton made a legitimate case.
"I think she has a little bit of a valid point," he said on CNN's "The Situation Room." "It's not so important whether or not it was a movie or what it was. I think what's important, though, in going forward is it not happen again."

let's see if FOX runs that story.
Meaning that it is important that Obama not continue to lie in the future about similar events.
