What world do you loony left wingers live in?

“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern.“When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

Simply amazing!

It means the tenure for the Army is over after two years, nitwit!!

They didn't teach you that inn truck driver school??

The founders knew that a standing army is the greatest threat to a democracy.

How many times in your life have you seen millitary juntas??

It happens everywhere, and frequently. It's how Iraq, Syria, Burma, and all of South America have evolved.

And it could happen here. Our military is a danger to our society. As well as the world's societies.

Which is why ouor founding fathers made it clear that an army could only exist for 2 years.

If you need one, you raise a new one. Thereby, the Army doesn't
become powerful enough to overthrow the elected Gov't!! DUH

Where do you see the defense budget in the Constitution??

It's unConstitutional, you ninny!

Gawd, you wear stupid like a finely tailored suit!!

Please point out where the Defense Dept exists in the Constitution.

Until you can, you show yourself to be an uneducated fool backwoods hick.

The only thing authorized per the Constitution is the Navy.

Defense Dept??

Have you ever read the Constitution??

I'm serious. Have you?? All of it??

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

<quoted text> yep. West Virginia did not secede from the union. Homer should read history more before spouting nonsense.
Type in: How many counties does WV have
WVA was part of Virginia, pre Civil War.

Any way you slice it, WVA was formed by traitorous action. No other possible answer.

VA was punished by Lincoln by allowing these renegade counties of VA to form a new State in 1863, the only state created by secession from the old Confederacy.

It is a shameful legacy. You're too dumb to be ashamed of the treason and duplicity done by your WVA forefathers.

There was no helicopter coverage of the beginning of the fire, and after the fire was burning the coverage was from a great distance, with little detail. Much of the time you were watching old footage, not real time coverage.

"Fact-checking Obama's State of the Union

The president spins his accomplishments on jobs, health care and deficit reduction in annual address.

President Obama put a rosy spin on several accomplishments of his administration in his 2013 State of the Union address.

The president claimed that "both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion." But that's only an estimate of deficit reduction through fiscal year 2022, and it would be lower if the White House used a different starting point.
Obama touted the growth of 500,000 manufacturing jobs over the past three years, but there has been a net loss of 600,000 manufacturing jobs since he took office. The recent growth also has stalled since July 2012.
He claimed that "we have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas." Actual mileage is improving, but Obama's "doubled" claim refers to a desired miles-per-gallon average for model year 2025.
Obama said the Affordable Care Act "is helping to slow the growth of health care costs." It may be helping, but the slower growth for health care spending began in 2009, before the law was enacted, and is due at least partly to the down economy.

The president also made an exaggerated claim of bipartisanship. He said that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney agreed with him that the minimum wage should be tied to the cost of living. But Romney backed off that view during the campaign."

If you are satisfied with 1% GDP growth and 8% unemployment as a permanent fixture instead of a cycle, then one can understand why you like Obama.

Most normal people want growth and advancement, not just sitting on the porch collecting a check.

If you weren't a dumb, ignorant, lying libtard you would know that the vast majority of time under the previous Republican administration provided us with low unemployment, gas prices and in 2007, the highest tax revenues. In 2007, DemonBrats took control of Congress libtard and it's been downhill since then.

Your boy is in over his head and has made things worse and now the debt is out of control, gas prices (which should be factored into inflation, but are not) are higher than ever and unemployment is dismally high, uncluding the U-6, dickwad. Since you people never pay your bills or work hard you don't care.

GFY loser.

You're an idiot.

Virginia and all other secessionist states were part of the Union, which is why the War occurred.

How stupid can you be??

If Lincoln had agreed to a new Confederate Nation, Va would not be a state.

Lincoln denied the very premise of secession from the USA. It's unConstitutional.

Therefore, legally, none of the states ever left the Union. They were simply renegades to be brought back into line.

The war was begun to bring the secessionist states back into a Union that denied their legal standing to secede!!DUH

Homer is right, it's been a known legal factoid for well over a century.

You again prove yourselves to be uneducated rubes, lacking critical thinking skills.

WVA was created by an unConstitutional Act.

Deal with it, you idiot.
