Dunno, maybe they feel entitled after paying out year after year for all the tornados and hurricanes that rip through the midwest and the south, you know red states.

And yet, gun control advocates want only trigger-happy cops (and retired cops) to be armed.

Exactly! Because if they deem Drones illegal; then if a Republican ever becomes President; his hands will be tied. If they say President Obamas use of drones is a war crime; well then Bush is his codefendant.
What a quandary.
It's all just rightwing ground chatter, with Flack aka Mr. Rightwing leading the charge.

It's snowing at Bear Mountain where Dorner is said to be hiding!
Too bad he's black, they'll think he's a black bear, sticking out like a sore thumb. He's a goner soon, unless he brought a kkk hoodie!
I pity any large black men living out that way.

I still haven't learned what the cat has been doing to make ends meet since being fired back in 2008.

I'm not a fan of the cops; no one has proposed everyone be unarmed; just get rid of assault weapons and do background checks.
A large percentage of Americans agree on this.
Lots of folks in Southern California are happy that they are armed with Dorner on the loose, not to mention that unrelated 9-1-1 calls may go unanswered.

joke of the day....

Dick Morris Says He Wants To Moderate The GOP

Fresh off his departure from Fox News, Dick Morris said in an interview published Friday that his next mission will be to help the Republican Party rediscover the ideological center.

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/d...

As the National Review noted, such an effort would mark a dramatic shift in tone for Morris, who's co-authored a number of books in recent years that catered to the far-right fringe.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., called the White House’s legal footing on a policy allowing drone strikes on American civilians “solid” in an interview with Andrea Mitchell Wednesday.

not a progressive.
Now you know why the so called Liberals are turning on Obama which has been his problem all along with that New Left base that Bill Clinton & the other represent besides it was Bill Clinton that spoke against Obama saying he wasnt doing enough on Gun Control too.

He was in the Navy reserve; looks pretty big to me, easy to spot; especially in the snow! He'll either kill himself or go down in a blaze of glory.

who would scrub this?

You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama. A woman whose professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent First wives. You call his supporters, whether black, brown, yellow, or white, leeches, FSA, welfare recipients, and ni$&er lovers. You say this openly without any discretion. Before you start with your argument that you believe I would vote for Obama because he has the same skin color as me, fk you. I didn't vote in this last election as my choice of candidate, John Huntsman, didn't win the primary candidacy for his party. Mr. President, I haven't agreed with all of your decisions but of course I haven't agreed with all of your predecessors decisions. I think you've done a hell of a job with what you have been dealt and how you have managed it. I shed a tear the night you were initially elected President in 2008. I never thought that day would occur. A black man elected president in the U.S. in my lifetime. I cracked a smiled when you were re-elected in 2012 because I really didn't think you were going to pull that one off. Romney, stop being a sore loser. You could've exited graciously and still contributed significantly to public service, not now. Mr. President, get back to work. Many want to see you fail as they have stated so many times previously. Unfortunately, if you fail, the U.S. fails but your opponents do not concern themselves about the big picture. Do not forget your commitment to transparency in your administration. Sometimes I believe your administration forgets that. America, you will realize today and tomorrow that this world is made up of all human beings who have the same general needs and wants in life for themselves, their kin, community, and state. That is the freedom to LIVE and LOVE. They may eat different foods, enjoy different music, have different dialects, or speak a second language, but in essence are no different from you and I. This is America. We are not a perfect sovereign country as we have our own flaws but we are the closest that will ever exist.

http://wap.myfoxla.com/w/main/story/84473837/

and.....

The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.
