The point is that the sentence is not clear. Those advocating for people to own nuclear weapons, tanks, RPGs & machine guns should not keep dragging out the Second Amendment as an absolute proof.

So must the Pope & you right whiners. Access to free contraception drastically reduces the abortion rate.
You are such a moran!!! Why would I be against contraception? So does not screwing around till you are ready to have a baby. I don't feel that I should be forced to pay for other people's lifestyle choices. As far as abortion goes, if you want to kill your baby go right ahead. If you want to kill your future who am I to stop you. I will not pay for it however. I believe in personal responsibility. You must be ready to take responsibility for your actions. Otherwise this country and even civilization itself will not survive.

Object Lesson:“Temporary” Amnesty Never Dies


By Michelle Malkin • April 12, 2013 09:37 Object

Does America lack “compassion” and “humanity” for uninvited foreigners? Quite the contrary. While open-borders activists rail against “injustice” and demand new “pathways to citizenship,” official U.S. policy rewards countless line-jumpers with permanent residency and taxpayer-subsidized benefits.

Case in point: the massive “Temporary Protected Status”(TPS) program run by the Department of Homeland Security.

In theory, as the DHS website describes it, the Secretary of Homeland Security “may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.” Those conditions include hurricanes, environmental catastrophes, civil war, epidemics and other “extraordinary and temporary conditions.”

The U.S. allows illegal aliens from TPS-designated countries to live here, work here, be protected from detention or deportation, and travel freely. It’s essentially a bad-weather pass into the U.S. Whenever a natural disaster strikes, we allow legions of foreigners who entered illegally — mostly from Latin America — to stay here while their homelands recover.

In the meantime, TPS winners can apply for a panoply of other immigration benefits and protections and file for “adjustment of status” to pave the way to permanent legalization. In fact, the official draft application for OBAMACARE lists “Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Applicant for Temporary Protected Status (TPS)” as an “eligible immigration status.”

Yep, that means you don’t even have to be a legit, approved TPS designee to qualify for Obamacare. If you merely filed paperwork to be an “applicant” for TPS, you’re in like Flynn! DHS documents are now officially pimping Obamacare to foreigners. And GOP Senate Budget Committee staffers estimate that covering illegal aliens could raise the cost of Obamacare by $120 billion to $200 billion in its first decade.

In theory, TPS beneficiaries are supposed to go home after their native countries improve. In practice, there is nothing temporary about these “temporary” reprieves for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from around the world.

Last week, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that TPS had been extended for at least 70,000 Hondurans and Nicaraguans “for an additional 18 months, beginning July 6, 2013, and ending Jan. 5, 2015.” Thanks to American generosity, these TPS winners have been here since 1998 — when Hurricane Mitch hit their homeland.

That was 15 years ago.

Another 250,000 illegal aliens from El Salvador first won TPS golden tickets after an earthquake struck the country … in January 2001. In addition, 60,000 Haitians received TPS after the earthquakes in 2010. Last fall, Napolitano extended their stay until at least 2014. Several hundred Somalis remain in the country with TPS first granted in 1991, along with some 700 Sudanese who first secured TPS benefits in 1997. Last March, the Obama administration extended TPS to an estimated 3,000 Syrian illegal aliens. Guatemala and Pakistan are lobbying for their own TPS designations.

John Adams recognizes the fundamental right of citizens, as individuals, to defend themselves with arms, however he states militias must be controlled by government and the rule of law. To have otherwise is to invite anarchy.

Why doesn't the left talk about welfare REFORM? It would solve so many of the problems - except they might lose some votes.
Of course, in that case, they will never learn.

So very true but wait until we don't have enough workers to pay for all to get that free stuff, even they won't be able to get a job, what then?

Roger Sherman, during House consideration of a militia bill (1790)

"Concieved it to be the privilege of every citizen, and one of his most essential rights, to bear arms, and to resist every attack upon his liberty and property, by whomsoever made. The particular states, like private citizens, have the right to be armed, and to defend, by force of arms, their rights, when invaded."

seems like just yesterday the media was in an uproar when Joe Wilson called Obama a liar when he said ILLEGALS WOULDN'T QUALIFY FOR OBAMACARE.

Obama was/is the liar.

"During President Obama's major health care speech on Wednesday, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson (R) yelled out "You lie!" when the President said the legislation would not mandate coverage for undocumented immigrants. "

Zacharia Johnson argued that the new Constitution could never result in religious persecution or other oppression because "The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them."

There are many, many more. It is quite clear what their intent of the second amendment was.

<quoted text>No, I would love to see you qualify this study. I am willing to look at something new, if it were true. What is the name of the study and who did the peer review. It mean since gay men have had a mortality rate of age 42, not counting AIDS and straight men were living to 79 years of age, I guess you would be proud if gay men lived to be 43. I can't help but notice that the study was not a US study and not done by the APA and it obviously was not done by the WHO. I guess you gays will take anything that you can.
Let me complete your study for you: Homosexual couples made up less than 1 percent of the study sample, so researchers cautioned that their findings may not be as representative of the population.(Not a valid sampling size)
Unlike the men, mortality rates have increased slightly for married lesbian couples, with rates higher than those of married gay men and heterosexual couples who live together. Researchers believe that it is because married lesbians were 60 percent more likely to die from cancer and six times more likely to commit suicide than married straight women, although the reasons why are unknown.
"Since the year 2000, same-sex married Danish lesbians have had mortality rates that are almost 90 percent higher than opposite-sex women in Denmark," he said to Live Science.
Suicide rates for same sex male couples were also higher than those for married straight couples.

IT IS OBVIOUS THAT I WAS ABLE TO REBUTT YOUR STUDY WITH YOUR STUDY. THE EVEN TRY TO PLAY GAMES OF OMIT AND INSERT WITH ME.
Are you too stupid to note the reference and google it for yourself? Don't bother answering that. The fact that the study was done in Denmark (also noted in my post) where gay marriage has been allowed since 1989, is another reason it is more valid than one done in a country where homosexuals are still treated as second class citizens. Don't bother trying to "rebutt" me--respond to me at all for that matter, Knock-knock--although it's commendable that you want to spout words that impress you in your community college class in social studies, they just don't impress me.

Foolish, condescending, obnoxious carol, if you want anyone to honor your observations, you should really work on making them "humble" and learn the difference between advise and advice--neither of which benefit from your use.
