Aren't you the KKKoward that was saying Obama has done nothing to impact gun rights? You have about zero credibility on this thread, KKKoward. Beat it.

A bipartisan group of leading senators reached an agreement on sweeping legislation to rewrite the nation's immigration laws.

It covers border security, guest workers, employer verification and a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants in the country.

Details have yet to be negotiated, but it's a significant development.

McCain and the late Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy collaborated on immigration legislation pushed by President George W. Bush in 2007. It collapsed in the Senate when it couldn't get enough GOP support.

Because of the Latino support for Obama last November, Republican leaders concluded supporting immigration reform with a path to citizenship has become a political imperative.

For Republicans, it's all about what the people want.

Maybe it will rub off on Obama and the Democrats.
Unfortunately, it's too late for Obamacare. They ignored the wishes of the majority then and are still ignoring tht the majority want government to cut spending.

A 12-Step Program for the Republican Party

The GOP has finally admitted it has a problem winning over voters. Here’s how to get the party back on track.

Step 1: Admit the Problem

The modern Republican Party has a disease.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of; everyone has a relative who has been afflicted with the same malady, loves someone who has gone through it. President Obama’s Democratic Party has an uncle, John Kerry’s Democratic Party, that had the sickness. And its uncle, Walter Mondale’s Democratic Party, might have had one of the worse cases anyone has ever seen.

Such a crippling condition is widely observed and freely diagnosed. There is no shortage of advice. But, ultimately, it’s up to the patient to accept and admit something is wrong. And after a decade in denial, the GOP seems to have finally reached that point.

Some addicts are confronted through an intervention. Others run to Oprah. In the case of a political party that appears to have lost the capacity to win national elections, redemption starts with establishing something called the Growth and Opportunity Project, a five-member group tasked with identifying the party’s foremost problems and solutions for moving forward. Consider it the Washington version of a cry for help.

Hey waxturd, I thought you weren't going to talk to me.
As long as you still want to be my lap dog, can you name ONE thing Obama has done to "impact your gun rights"? Answer = nothing. I'm still right and you're still a moron.

.... Meanwhile, back in Louisiana Mr. Jindal is pushing a plan to eliminate the state’s income tax, which falls most heavily on the affluent, and make up for the lost revenue by raising sales taxes, which fall much more heavily on the poor and the middle class. The result would be big gains for the top 1 percent, substantial losses for the bottom 60 percent. Similar plans are being pushed by a number of other Republican governors as well.

Like the new acknowledgment that the perception of being the party of the rich is a problem, this represents a departure for the G.O.P.— but in the opposite direction. In the past, Republicans would justify tax cuts for the rich either by claiming that they would pay for themselves or by claiming that they could make up for lost revenue by cutting wasteful spending. But what we’re seeing now is open, explicit reverse Robin Hoodism: taking from ordinary families and giving to the rich. That is, even as Republicans look for a way to sound more sympathetic and less extreme, their actual policies are taking another sharp right turn.

Why is this happening? In particular, why is it happening now, just after an election in which the G.O.P. paid a price for its anti-populist stand?

Well, I don’t have a full answer, but I think it’s important to understand the extent to which leading Republicans live in an intellectual bubble. They get their news from Fox and other captive media, they get their policy analysis from billionaire-financed right-wing think tanks, and they’re often blissfully unaware both of contrary evidence and of how their positions sound to outsiders.

CHICAGO — At least five people were gunned down in a single day in Chicago, including a 34-year-old man whose mother had already lost her three other children to shootings.

Chicago's homicide count eclipsed 500 last year for the first time since 2008.

-----

Doesn't Chicago have one of the nation's strictest gun laws? Aren't Obama and most of his administration from Chicago? And why didn't it work there if they think it's going to work for the rest of the country?

You're just mad because Homer's manifesto is competition for your book of fanatsies where Obama is buying enough ammo so he can kill every American.
So, how many Americans do you think can be killed with 750 million rounds for the FBI, BATF and DHS?

You still haven't answered these two questions:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple location is required to answer the first question.
A simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
To date, nobody on Earth has answered the above two questions.

Shall we start the week where we left off last week, you running like a scalded dog from these questions....

Easy one fool, sensible gun control...I suspect it's the sensible part that you nutcases don't get? just so morons with guns don't kill all of our children and other law abiding citizens. Guns and gun owners are out of control and we prove that every year. And exactly why would you need a 22 that holds more than ten rounds? Join the military idiot.
Come back to the conversation when you are not high on cocaine....

The first test of the militia system occurred in July 1794, when a group of disaffected Pennsylvania farmers rebelled against federal tax collectors whom they viewed as illegitimate tools of tyrannical power.
.
I had not really considered what in modern times a militia was. After reading this I see that a militia may be needed against Repubs who keep making threats against our government and President. The recorded times in US history when a militia was used were NOT against the Government, but instead against those trying to overtake it or rebel against it.
