Here are the facts, Dumnbass.
All, including Republicans, in Congress representing the southern states voted no.
All outside the South voted yes (except a couple Republicans).
It was regional.
I do undertand the need of the rabid right to try to paint Democrats as racist in order to hide the Republican racists they welcomed under their tent.
Democrats have been the instigators and propagators of all the racial strife in America since it began. What you are essentially saying is, if we'd had no southern democratic slave states, we wouldn't have had a Civil War. I couldn't agree more.

A case of road rage escalated into gunplay after shots were fired near Newport, N.C., on Sunday.

Carteret County deputies searched for two suspects -- a man and a woman -- and released cell phone video of the incident. WITN reported that both suspects turned themselves in at Lenoir County Courthouse on Monday.

Update: 3/26, 10:15 a.m.-- WITN reports that the suspects, Christy and Bradley Turner, have been charged. Bradley Turner is charged with discharging a weapon into property, two counts of assault by pointing a gun, going armed to the terror of the people, injury to personal property, and assault. His wife, Christy Turner is charged with two counts of assault by pointing a gun. The couple posted $38,500 bond.

Bill O’Reilly: Gay Rights Advocates Have ‘Compelling Argument’

1. Bush started a war with a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11 just to show his dad he was a man. That war cost 4000 American soldiers lives, 33,000 wounded and an estimated $4 Trillion.
.
2. In 2003 Bush signed the American Dream Down Payment Act that he said HIS administration had come up with. That new Law changed 4 major items of home loans. No down payment required, no background checks, up to 150% of home value could be loaned and up to 5 years of deferred payments. This is the reason that in 2008 90% of all home loans defaulted on were LESS than 5 years old. This banking and Wall St home loan scam that the new Bush Law created was the downfall of the US economy.
.
3. Bush lowered the tax rates to the lowest point ever in US history. Lowered so much that America could no longer pay its Bills. Bush handed Obama the US credit card with the largest debt ever and only enough income to pay the reoccurring monthly bills but not the balance. That is why no matter who is President the debt will double every 10 years unless major changes are done.

An Upstate lawmaker is changing a bill he introduced in the state House of Representatives that would ban doctors from discussing gun safety with their patients.
Rep. Joshua Putnam, R-Piedmont, said backlash from doctors around the state has forced him to reconsider the original intent of House Bill 3416.
“Some doctors, they don’t like the way it’s worded right now,” Putnam said.“I’ve been working with the Medical Association. I have an amendment that will make them happy.”
Putnam’s original bill, which 56 other Republican lawmakers have signed on to support, would make it illegal for a doctor to ask a patient if he or she owns a gun. The bill lays out three exceptions — doctors could ask a patient about gun ownership if he was being treated for a gunshot wound, was mentally ill or was being abused.
The amended bill would essentially shore up the status quo, Putnam said. Discussing gun safety with patients would be left up to individual doctors — they can choose to talk about it or not.
Rep. Mike Sottile, R-Isle of Palms, said he supported the original bill, but needs to take “another good, hard look” at it.
“Honestly when it was first presented to me, I thought it made sense,” Sottile said.
When he decided to support the legislation, Sottile said he had not considered how it may be important for pediatricians to talk to young children about gun safety.
“I don’t mind telling you when my daughter came along, I had a handgun and I got rid of it. I didn’t feel comfortable having it in the house,” Sottile said.“I think gun safety is paramount. Whatever you can do to help people own guns and be responsible with them, I don’t have a problem with.”
South Carolina ranks 13th in the country for firearm deaths, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which tracks a variety of health benchmarks in the U.S.
http://www.postandcourier.com/article/2013031...
Why would anyone ban a doctor from speaking to his patients? Who would enforce that? If a person seems suicidal to the doctor, should he not ask the patient if he feels he may hurt himself or if he has a weapon? What the hell is wrong with these rightwingers?
Suicides outnumber murders; no one wants to talk about it.

i read the whole thing. evidently you didn't.
When queried by reporters concerning his views on the assassination of John F. Kennedy in November 1963, Malcolm X famously – and quite charitably, all things considered – replied that it was merely a case of "chickens coming home to roost."
On the morning of September 11, 2001, a few more chickens – along with some half-million dead Iraqi children – came home to roost in a very big way at the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center. Well, actually, a few of them seem to have nestled in at the Pentagon as well.
The Iraqi youngsters, all of them under 12, died as a predictable – in fact, widely predicted – result of the 1991 US "surgical" bombing of their country's water purification and sewage facilities, as well as other "infrastructural" targets upon which Iraq's civilian population depends for its very survival.
If the nature of the bombing were not already bad enough – and it should be noted that this sort of "aerial warfare" constitutes a Class I Crime Against humanity, entailing myriad gross violations of international law, as well as every conceivable standard of "civilized" behavior – the death toll has been steadily ratcheted up by US-imposed sanctions for a full decade now. Enforced all the while by a massive military presence and periodic bombing raids, the embargo has greatly impaired the victims' ability to import the nutrients, medicines and other materials necessary to saving the lives of even their toddlers.
All told, Iraq has a population of about 18 million. The 500,000 kids lost to date thus represent something on the order of 25 percent of their age group. Indisputably, the rest have suffered – are still suffering – a combination of physical debilitation and psychological trauma severe enough to prevent their ever fully recovering. In effect, an entire generation has been obliterated.
The reason for this holocaust was/is rather simple, and stated quite straightforwardly by President George Bush, the 41st "freedom-loving" father of the freedom-lover currently filling the Oval Office, George the 43rd: "The world must learn that what we say, goes," intoned George the Elder to the enthusiastic applause of freedom-loving Americans everywhere.

Ward Churchill and you need to look at the source. Placing blame on anyone or anything but the source of those mass graves, mass genocide and chemical weapons used on women and children is both narrow-mindedly simplistic and disturbingly complacent.

The atrocities committed against women and children in Islamic countries should be enough for you bleeding heart liberals to sit up and take notice. But ideology is more important than human rights when it comes to preserving your anti-American propaganda.

Democrats and the UN knew Saddam had WMDs. Post 9/11, he became an imminent threat.

Maybe if Saddam had been left alone to unleash his biological and chemical weapons on us and the rest of the world, Mr. Churchill would have something else to write about.

Frankly, his kind of "intelligent short-sightedness" is more like just plain biased ignorance.

MLK: Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

Bob McDonnell, Virginia Governor, Introduces Abortion Coverage Ban
With this amendment, Governor McDonnell has launched yet another effort to intrude in women’s health care decisions and block Virginians access to comprehensive reproductive health care," said Caroline O’Shea, deputy director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, in a statement. "Coverage for safe, legal abortion care -- a procedure one in three women will access in their lifetimes - is a basic benefit that most insurance plans currently include. By banning women from using their own funds to purchase plans that include this common benefit, Gov. McDonnell is restricting Virginians’ personal economic decisions as well as their access to comprehensive care."
