You just keep proving my pint about how the right coddles the racists & bigots & then you morons wonder why Hispanics, Blacks, & Gays won't vote for your candidates.
I'm black, & was a criminal for a good part of my life. Not bragging or anything, & no I'm not ashamed! My point is, most known criminals are from the street pharmaceutical industry (hustlers). For the most part people don't decide to deal drugs. A young man is only gonna come home 1 time to mom crying there's nothing to eat , before he takes it apon himself to makes sure that never happens again! That in no way is comparable to being gay. Nobody becomes gay for the well being of his/her family. I'll be honest, most of the time it's the failure of parents that makes a kid take to the streets, but that's not always the case. Some young men just want more & sees the streets as the fastest way to get it. Back to my point. Hustling is not a mental disorder. It may be a mental mistake, but far from a disorder!

WRONG STUPID! The Second Amendment reads;
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Get that Carol? A well regulated militia. And who regulated the militia? The government. The idea was that citizens formed into military groups in time of peril were preferable to a standing army.
You're an idiot Carol!
Do you see that COMMA in there? You do know what a COMMA is used for right? What part of 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED' don't you understand?

First, I agree with the right to own guns. But really Flackster, having this big a fit? Consider the below statement.

A good diet is necessary for good health, the idea that people can have access to healthy food should not be infringed.

The entire statement says that people should have access to healthy food in order to have a healthy diet.

So why isn't the right to bear arms needed in order to have this free militia?

Just Asking.

I fundamentally do not believe in gun control because such laws give the police unlimited opportunity to plant weapons and falsely convict. I also believe the 2nd Amendment does not allow government to disarm the people, although with some limits with regard to military ordenance.
I think the liberals are mostly interested in greater regulation of handguns, not firearms in general.
Comparing Obama and Chavez to Hitler is ridiculous. Bush, with his big lies, torture prisons, "pre-emptive war" and the Patriot Act is a much closer analogy.
This is just a stupid argument. If everybody here has their sanity, I'm quite sure there's a middle ground we can meet on. Everybody should be able to agree that Obama doesn't, & never did want to confiscate weapons. That was never his position. After Sandy Hook, the mans hands were forced. It's like those on the right are forgetting the seriousness of that massacre, or the fact that most of these mass murders were done with legal guns stolen from legal gun owners. My solution is, if someones weapon is stolen, & then subsequently use in a murder or attempted murder ,that person be charged as an accessory to the crime. That way that person still keep it's 2 amendment right, yet still be held responsible for the carelessness if they fall to utilize gun safety measures. I also agree on assault weapons ban, & extended clip, or magazines for convertible weapons, modifiable weapons. It should also be against the law for manufacturers to make civilian weapons that can be modified by doing something as simple as pulling a pin out to make a single shot SIMI I, or SIMI fully auto. Just my take on it.

The South Koreans are laughing at him. They're not running and hiding.
Useful idiot 2
April 11, 2013

While visiting City Hall the other day, Jimmy Carter volunteered that, if asked, he’d be more than happy to go back to North Korea to defuse Pyongyang’s nuclear saber-rattling.

“I’ve been there three times so far,” said Carter.“But I never have been unless North Korea asked me to come and I got approval from the White House. If that should happen, I would be glad to go back.”

And the Nobel Peace Prize winner proceeded to make his case for why Barack Obama and Kim Jong Un should do precisely that.“I know the people there very well,” he said.“I’ve spent dozens of hours talking to them. I think what they want is a peace agreement with the United States.”

We don’t doubt that Carter has credibility with North Korea. Because few people outside that nation’s Communist regime have done more to abet its pursuit of nuclear weapons. Back in 1994, Carter appointed himself peacemaker, flew to Pyongyang — and effectively undercut then-President Clinton’s push for tougher sanctions by offering North Korea a sweetheart deal in return for a promise to freeze its weapons program.

While others hailed him for his “peacemaking,” this page described him as the classic “USEFUL IDIOT.” All Carter had done, we wrote, was allow Kim Il Sung (the current leader’s grandfather) to “buy time in order to keep building nuclear weapons.”

Nearly twenty years later, our editorial stands up pretty well. So if President Obama wishes to take Carter up on his offer by sending him back to Pyongyang, we’d say go for it — so long as it’s a one-way ticket.

Dead silence
April 10, 2013

Normally those of us in the news business love trials, the more sensational the better. Just look at the coverage of the Jodi Arias murder trial in Maricopa County, Ariz.— or earlier national obsessions with Casey Anthony and O.J. Simpson.

Which makes the media blackout of one ongoing trial a mystery. Or maybe not.

In Philadelphia, Kermit Gosnell is on trial on eight counts of murder: seven for babies he’s accused of killing with scissors after they were born, and one for a pregnant refugee who died after receiving an overdose of drugs. If true, Gosnell was running a slaughterhouse out of the Middle Ages.

Former employees have testified to the gruesome conditions at a clinic that catered to poor, minority clients. One staffer — who has pleaded guilty to the murder of two babies — calls what they did “like a beheading.”

Gosnell himself was making a fortune, taking in up to $15,000 a day. Police seized $250,000 in cash from his home. He also faces a separate federal trial for illegal distribution of prescription drugs.

The trial is receiving intensive coverage in Philadelphia and across the conservative press and Web sites. But national networks and newspapers? Not so much.

The reason seems obvious: MUCH OF OUR PRESS CORPS SKEWS TO ONE SIDE ON ABORTION. So even though what Gosnell is charged with is closer to infanticide — an unlicensed abortionist profiting mightily by killing the newborn babies of poor, minority women — somehow it’s not news.

Isn’t that a scandal, too?

Media blackout on abortion doctor’s trial—Editorial - NYPOST.com http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/editoria...

see, libs are ok with murder as long as its in the birth canal. murder by gun outside is reported because it fits their agenda of being anti-gun. similar to when black on white crime occurs, its buried on page 62 of the newspaper in two tiny paragraphs. but let it be reverse, like in the hoodie wearer in FL or recently the career thug shot by two police officers in NYC---the media used photos of the thug from when he was about 8 years old so as part of their anti-NYPD agenda they could portray him as a "victim" on the front page. its part of the liberal "agenda."

Republicans against entitlement cuts? Seriously?

Supporters of entitlement spending restraint naturally expect to encounter fierce resistance from many Democrats. But if key Republicans also rush to the defense of unchecked entitlement growth, then the game is lost. Republicans should support proposals that limit entitlement spending, even when they come from the president.

The GOP-Fox Circus Act

While Fox still enjoys ratings victories, albeit narrower ones, conservatives have suffered significant losses at the ballot box in three of the past four national elections. And they face the prospect of even more defeats if they don't lead their movement out of the wilderness of serial misinformation and forgo the temptation of perpetual outrage.

You are such a moran. You come up with the stupidest things to try to prove something when all you do is show your a moran. But believe it or not with the economy tanking that will be a cry heard in the not to distant future.

Of course the people would have to be armed to have a free militia. The right to bear arms is not just for the militia. They are separate. That is why the COMMA is there.

Yeah, so you're an egocentric sociopath. We get it.
Obviously you don't have a college education Dupont. Aphelion was explaining the way it is throughout the world job markets, not just in his world. Maybe you should look up words before trying to use them.

If you libtards and your parents weren't lazy while you were growing up, you would get the education and/or skills to make a good living so you would not need to have a job that start out for work before the sun comes up.

We need people like you too so the menial tasks can be performed so nobody is knocking what people like you do, but on the other hand, you should not expect to be paid the same as someone else who is smarter.

This country affords the opportunity for low income people to "move on up" with educational grants and financial aid. As a matter of fact, people like me pay/paid fill price for college to the tune of $50,000 a year to subsidize people like you and your needy. You get a "leg up" already.

Why you think all through life, others should suffer financially due to your issues demonstrates you are a mooch. You "get it" alright, freeloader.

Do yourself a favor though. Get a dictionary.

Where does it indicate anything other than being armed for militia purposes.

If they were separate ideas, that comma would have been a period.

I'm sorry I left last night, although there's likely nothing I could have said that would have made a lick of difference. I merely had a front-row seat at Death's gaudy dance. You are likely dealing with it (if you can call it that) in a more graceful way than "The Brother." I watched mute as he dragged my diaper-clad father -- who, heretofore, had managed to survive everything his Death-dealing culture could throw at him. But like you say, Death is like a remorseless, yet blind, dance partner. It slams you to a fro like a rag doll, dances you before the ones who love you as if everything you ever knew, ever learned, ever loved, were no more than than the cheap painted veil that shimmers over reality. And it is! Or is it? Ah, that mystery makes religion look like the cheap carnival sideshow it has always been -- the Great Lie (the one even more blunt and dumb than Death)-- the idiotic notion that another mortal may suffer and die in your stead, so that you might be obviated of the task of unraveling the Grand Mystery.
Yes, I do fear you, how right you are in that. I fear your towering, casual intellect (it's more than that, but what word is appropriate -- shamanistic? delver into the depths of the human psyche and soul? lover of beauty, and hater of those who would despoil it for a vault full of green paper? attendee to a dying mother you likely love and hate (How can we help it?) I watched as O's mind disappeared for the mere technicality of no blood getting to his brain. I heard him whisper "can't you help me out of this?" And I had to choke, "I don't have anything." Then there was the Great Doctor, with the imagination of a rabbit, marching him to the showers, screaming at him to quit trying to take off his diaper -- berating him for it -- and my father crooning "ooooooh, ooooooh ooooooh ..." Then, my father to me, after awakening from a fetal-positioned sleep -- "Where am I" Me: You're in Oregon, dad. Dad: Oh, noooooo ...
So yes, I fear and love you -- can barely stand to talk to you anymore, because I feel we're bound in some awful knot that cannot be unraveled. I can feel in your very words how close you are -- we both are -- to stark raving madness, and that somehow that is even more compelling than anything else -- including all the so-called great pleasures in life. O once said, when he was well into his 70's -- "I feel powerful now." What he meant, of course, was that he lived more and more a life of the mind as his body weakened." I replied, that of course he did -- he was a self-realized Shaman, one who had retrieved the Philosophical Stone from Ordure. But still ... still...
Please know that I love you, and that the love outweighs the fear. I know what is coming, again, and then, finally, there is no one left who knows you, who loves you. who frets at your pain as if it were their own. How to bear it? How many have borne it? How many poets have tried to contain it, skim it, dissect it? I am leaving in a few days -- standing at the back of the train looking out the window is a stark demonstration of time itself. The future is not in front of you; it is at your back (as is believed in at least one primitive culture). It is the past that recedes, smaller and smaller, into the distance, as the future, Death itself , creeps up upon you like a cat, like a wave. When you turn from the window, Death moves, spider-like behind you again. And so on, and so on ...
IT'S OK. I JUST LOVE YOU... SO TIRED... I''L TAKE THE DOC ONCE I GET SOME SLEEP. THAT WAS BEAUTIFYL WHAT YOU WROTE... THERE'S VERY LITTLE - PLACES - FOR BEAUTY TO REST ANY LONGER... ONLY DEATH.

That's how they formed the militias and stopped the tyranny. You socialist/fascists who call yourself Democrats are trying to infringe on the second amendment, just like the NAZI Party did in Germany.
