Palestinians accuse the Jews of depriving them of their home when the vast majority of them moved to Israel after the Jews reclaimed the land from desolation and ruin. The Arab/Islam world owned over 1,000 times more real estate than Israel.
In 1991, thousands of Palestinians were expelled from Kuwait after they were found conspiring with the Iraqis in selling out their host country.
They were also expelled from Jordon in 1971.
Your full of crap as usual Carol, Palestinians have been living in the area now know as Israel for generations before they were forcibly expelled.

What reason is there for registering guns unless the government wants to ability to locate them for confiscation?
Sure stupid, that's why we register cars too. Guns like cars should be registered and insured and anyone who wants to own a gun should be required to show that they have the requisite skill and competence to handle one. Just like we don't want just any yahoo out on the roads we shouldn't have incompetent people with a device that can kill or injure someone from a mile away.

I guess I missed the part in the bill of rights where it states that driving a car is a right.

As always you demonstrate your ignorance and inherit disregard for our rights and liberties. The right to bear arms is just that a right. Your ability to drive an automobile is not a right but a privilege.

Cyprus clinched a last-ditch deal with international lenders on Monday for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout that will shut down its second largest bank and inflict heavy losses on uninsured depositors, including wealthy Russians.

The agreement emerged after fraught negotiations between President Nicos Anastasiades and heads of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - hours before a deadline to avert a collapse of the banking system.

The plan, swiftly endorsed by euro zone finance ministers, will spare the east Mediterranean island a financial meltdown by winding down Popular Bank of Cyprus, also known as Laiki, and shifting deposits below 100,000 euros to the Bank of Cyprus to create a "good bank".

Deposits above 100,000 euros, which under EU law are not guaranteed, will be frozen and used to resolve debts, and Laiki will effectively be shuttered, with thousands of job losses.

An EU spokesman said no levy would be imposed on any deposits in Cypriot banks. A first attempt at a deal last week collapsed when the Cypriot parliament rejected a proposed levy on all deposits.

I'm not getting some kind of entitlement moron, my wife and I are still paying the same insurance carrier we always have. I'm not worried about the kid finding a job. He's been upgraded from an unpaid intern to paid status and that's a good sign that he'll be offered a position when he graduates.
I'm sure that a chemo patient who gets to continue their treatments without going bankrupt don't really care that you think they're getting some kind of "socialistic" entitlement.
You're an idiot!
OK dumbfk, what do you call it when the government forces insurance companies to do business a certain way as legislation out of Obamacare?

Us educated people call that an "entitlement", peon.

Now go ahead and be cocky libtard. You might get exactly what you ask for with Obamacare. Unfortunately, your son may end up paying for your greed and ignorance.

If you don't think Obamcare is a "socialistic" entitlement, you just proved yet again how totally fukking clueless you are.

You are a moron. You prove it by denying something that is obvious to everyone. I bet your son is a moron too.

He will probably shoot for head of the UN. Can you imagine the damage these libtards could do with him in charge of the UN and his sockpuppet president of the US. We would be toast!

In doing so, they have voted to grow government all over the country, hurt low-tax states, impose taxation without representation, saddle small businesses with collecting taxes for 10,000 distinct tax jurisdictions, and adulterate the freest most successful entity known to man.

You left out some on the list:
It was Governor Ronald Reagan of California who signed the Mulford Act in 1967,‘prohibiting the carrying of firearms on one's person or in a vehicle, in any public place or on any public street.

1989 George Bush signed a ban on import of assault weapons which led to the total ban in 1993.
.
And if you Repubs ever do a little research you'll find that Hitler expanded the Rights to own guns in Germany among it's citizens. He never confiscated any.

WASHINGTON (AP)— Advocates of an effort to help states collect taxes on Internet sales won a symbolic but important victory Friday as the Senate signaled solid bipartisan support for the proposal.

Senators voted 75-24 for a nonbinding measure that endorses giving states more power to collect existing sales taxes on purchases their residents make from out-of-state Internet companies.

Though the vote was merely a show of sentiment, the one-sided outcome showed that supporters of collecting the levies could prevail should the Senate consider binding legislation later this year.

A congressional battle over the issue has been simmering for years, pitting Internet companies against traditional retail stores.

Part of what is at stake is potential revenue for cash-starved state governments across the country. An estimated $20 billion in sales taxes go uncollected annually by out-of-state online merchants.

Supporters also argue that not collecting the levies is a competitive disadvantage for retail stores, which must collect local sales taxes.

One sponsor, Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said Internet sales taxes should be collected "so those local businesses will have a fighting chance."

Sens. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., were other chief sponsors.

Opponents said the plan would be unworkably complicated, would pressure states without sales taxes to adopt them and would encourage companies to move overseas, where they said sales taxes could not be enforced.

"It tramples on states' rights," said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

Online businesses with less than $1 million in annual sales would be exempted from having to collect the levies.

In states with sales taxes, online buyers are currently supposed to pay a tax on their purchases but the requirement is seldom enforced.

Twenty-six Republicans voted to endorse collecting Internet sales taxes and 19 Republicans voted against it. Democrats backed the proposal, 49-5.

Friday's vote was on an amendment to the 2014 budget the Senate was debating.
