Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Tenzing proffered this awhile back, I think it's a great idea. Let the insurance industry control the guns. If Nancy Lanza knew she'd have to insure her weapons, with that kid in the house, her premiums would be through the roof; if she realized that anyone murdered by her guns would cost her entire estate and the insurance companies liability; perhaps 26 people would be alive.
Hey! I like it.

So right now there is no additional insurance needed or adjustments to insurance premiums if you own a gun?

Homer doesn't a own a gun, I find a bat to be more personal should anyone break in to my house.

Plus my you know is of uh adequate size, so no need to compensate and I'm not a hunter.

Black Opinions in the Age of Obama: Results of a National Zogby Poll
So, what did the poll, which I have chosen to entitle Black Opinions in the Age of Obama reveal? African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.
Consistent with the data that shows that African Americans believe that President Obama's election has helped them, a majority of those polled - 62 percent - are optimistic about employment in the next four years.
Thirty percent (30%) of the respondents say they are doing better off financially than they were four years ago, about half say they are at least doing the same, and twenty-five percent (25%) say that "African Americans in general" are doing better while forty-four percent (44%) say they are doing about the same and twenty-one percent (21%) say they are worse off.
On race relations, tied to this feeling that the Obama presidency has been positive for African Americans fifty-three percent (53%) say that white-African American relations will improve, while only twenty-three (23%) are pessimistic.
When asked why they believed the Black unemployment rate was double that of whites. Responses include:
* Failure of the education system for minorities/African Americans (50%)
* Lack of corporate commitment to hiring minorities/African Americans (48%)
* Lack of good government policies (25%)

You heathens SHOULD be giving thanks, one of y'alls jackboot figureheads weren't in office on 9/11.
Ya cretin.
Why? Cause they would've f cked it up worse than O'l Bush right. They would've called Bin Laden's family from the breakfast they were attending with Daddy Bush, & put them on a G5 & had military jets escort then out of the country, right! No, here's the biggie! They would've invaded a country that had nothing to do with nothing, giving those responsible time to scurry all across the middle east & African continent, right! You people are stupid, I mean literally!
Knowing the long time friendship of the Bush's & Bin Laden's, the fact that they were in joint business ventures up until 9/11, the fact they were together when the"attacks" happened, & the fact that Bush hurried up & flew Bin Laden's family out of the US. If that don't stink to high heaven, then you lost 1 of you 5 senses. There is no way possible a democrat could've f cked up worst than that idiot at best, & accomplice at the least. You think the devil is still a snake in the garden, stupid! Look in the mirror!

Tell gun owners to quit shooting people en masse and there won't be any need. Right now as noted we bear all the burden, why shouldn't gun owners bear more responsibility for themselves and their fellow gun owners actions?

The woman sent me here, I don't normally respond to their cravings for they are as ashes to me. I've killed more women in Spain than ever existed in Troy... or Greece. Someday, when I'm weak and less a man ... I might kill myself. On the other hand... I might go fishing... who knows?

In my state, or city--I'm not really sure--one has to have a 100K liability policy if he owns a pit bull, and pit bulls cannot be adopted out of a shelter. Guns? Not so much. I guess Portman's son hasn't brought home a pit bull yet?

The enemy decides the frontlines of any war.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq...

South Korea?

CNN - U.S. deploys stealth fighter jets to South Korea.

The tense situation has irritated North Korea's traditional allies, China and Russia, drawing regular calls for restraint on all sides in recent weeks.

North Korea is probably just blowing off hot air again. It's probably nothing...

Smoking a fleshy cigarette I watch the fascists over the lit barrels of my gun... lit barrels, I smile and then shoot them down. They suffer... I hunt them down, mere millimeters of movement, rends their tender hides... like Marlin. They die.

In the distance I see the ambulance racing to die. It hits a mine. Is it ours or theirs? Her brilliant red-gold hair rises like my penis and then settles on the snowy, dark landscape. I wish I was taller, but I'm not.

Then why have background checks at all?
As to doctors questions, no legislation is required. Simply refuse to answer questions about weapons possession, as well as questions about alcohol consumption.
What the fk are you talking about?

The criminal background data bases exist and are currently being shared by the majority if not all of the states, matter of fact there are at least three comprehensive national data bases that are not based on scientific opinion__felon means felon.

Speaking of data bases, Pennsylvania is reviewing and may rescind it's reciprocal agreement with Florida regarding conceal carry permits. Amazing eh?

Although it is nearly a mile away, I kill the the Spanish soldiers. They die like men. In pieces. no one shall have my redhead but me. No one. Although she's dead now, only I will have her. In it's way this gruesome glory is as Troy. Leo, the ambulance driver, is Helen... the rest of these guys, I'm not sure of yet. All I know is that sooner or later we'll be in Paris... or Cuba. Art imitates life.

An outspoken investigative journalist and former CNN correspondent has once again stressed that the US-based network is engaged in spreading Western propaganda against Iran and Syria.

Amber Lyon said that when she was working for CNN, she received orders to send false news or exclude certain information which the US administration did not approve of with the aim of inciting public opinion, Lyon added that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create propaganda,She said that the same scenario used before launching the 2003 war on Iraq is being prepared for Iran and Syria.

Amber went on to say that both states are now being subjected to “constant demonization” by American mainstream media.

The former reporter clarified that the CNN receives money from the US government and other states in exchange for aligning news content with their interests.

She described the attitude as “dangerous to the American public because they are not being given the accurate story and accurate picture of our foreign policy.”

Lyon also said that CNN was bribed by Bahrain’s regime to censor an early 2011 documentary on its brutal crackdown on popular protests.

The former CNN correspondent produced the documentary on the brutal suppression of nationwide protests in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Although it was aired domestically within the US, its broadcast on CNN International was suspiciously withheld, raising charges that the management of the mainstream TV network had pulled the plug on the news story.

The big fish dances at the end of my line and I pull hard against him even though I know the hook is already hard-set against his silvery jaw. His maleness against mine, he will surely lose. I will kill him, there is no doubt. As he rises in the coral blue water I think, "testicles." Wheras he's thinking, "lunch?"

A recent Wired piece —“America the Ammo Dealer (and Buyer)”— shows how the bullet industry has become a global business. Once again, spreading the socioeconomic costs to users isn’t a bad idea. There are so many reasons why this makes for sound public policy. There’s a long history of taxing things that are dangerous: Alcohol and tobacco are on top of the list.

It’s a long-held economic principle that taxing harmful activities can reduce their occurrence. Of course,“sin” taxes” never eliminate those activities, but they can certainly put a dent into things like drunk driving and cancer deaths. That much has been proven.

To continue on the road to gun violence remedies, we need to step out of this mindset that gun violence isn’t a socioeconomic curse that can alleviated by market-based solutions. Price the risk.

Good question.

we are as Americans and just what it is that set apart from
