Is that different enough? Dumbass Jane?
So bombs planted to terrorize people are okay if NO one gets hurt?

That is twisted.

Remember when a Green Peace group 'accidentally' killed someone with their 'peaceful' bombs?

Liberals - Hypocrites

'Our schizophrenic morality also affects the military.

When America was a far more traditional society, few seemed to care that Gen. Dwight Eisenhower carried on an unusual relationship at the front in Normandy with his young female chauffeur, Kay Summersby. As the Third Army chased the Germans across France, Gen. George S. Patton was not discreet about his female liaisons.

Contrast that live-and-let-live attitude of a supposedly uptight society with our own hip culture’s tabloid interest in Gen. David Petraeus’ career-ending affair with Paula Broadwell, or in the private emails of Gen. John Allen.

What explains these contradictions in our wide-open but prudish society?

Decades after the rise of feminism, popular culture still seems confused by it. If women should be able to approach sexuality like men, does it follow that commentary about sex should follow the same gender-neutral rules?

Yet wearing provocative or inappropriate clothing often is considered less offensive than remarking upon it.

Calling a near-nude Madonna onstage a “hussy” or “tart” would be considered crudity in a way that her mock crucifixion and simulated sex acts are not.

Criminal sexual activity is sometimes not as professionally injurious as politically incorrect thoughts about sex and gender.

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer — found to have hired prostitutes on a number of occasions during his time in office — was given a CNN news show despite the scandal.

But when former Miss California Carrie Prejean was asked in the Miss USA Pageant whether she endorsed gay marriage, she said no — and thereby earned nearly as much popular condemnation for her candid defense of traditional marriage as Spitzer had for his (ILLEGAL) purchased affairs.'

Saudi Arabia is hoping to wean jailed Al-Qaeda militants off religious extremism with counselling, spa treatments and plenty of exercise at a luxury rehabilitation centre in Riyadh.

In between sessions with counsellors and talks on religion, prisoners will be able to relax in the centre’s facilities which include an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a gym and a television hall.

The new complex is the work of the Prince Mohammed bin Nayef Centre for Counselling and Care, a body set up seven years ago to rehabilitate extremists jailed during a Saudi crackdown on the local branch of Al-Qaeda.
Just under 3,000 (Islamist prisoners) will have to go through one of these centres before they can be released,” interior ministry spokesman General Mansur al-Turki told AFP during a tour of the new centre.

Another centre has already opened in the western port city of Jeddah, and three more are planned for the north, east and south of the desert kingdom.

Gun control fight just beginning

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

Paul Waldman: Background check failure another GREAT day for Congress THAT DID THE RIGHT THING!
Senate undemocratic, he says; small rural states have outsized power
He says Sen. Chuck Grassley spread TRUTH to kill legislation


(CNN)-- When the Manchin-Toomey background check amendment, a modest gun restriction by any reasonable measure, was defeated, President Barack Obama called it a "shameful day in Washington." But as anyone who watches Congress knows, it has more than its share of shameful days.

There the deck was stacked against not only this bill, but against any bill that would restrict the proliferation of guns in any way. If those seeking sanity in our gun laws want to succeed, they'd better prepare themselves for a difficult journey.

Many people thought that the Newtown massacre changed everything about the gun debate in America, and that new legislation was inevitable. The first part of that belief is still true; the second part is not. The bill was doomed for a number of reasons.

HERE WE JUST HAD ANOTHER 9/11 IN BOSTON AND THESE PEOPLE
ARE TALKING ABOUT A DAMN GUN!WE NEED OUR GUNS MORE THAN
EVER TO PROTECT OUR BABIES,KIDS AND FAMILY!WE NEED TO VOTE OUT THESE DUMB ASS PEOPLE 2014 WHO WANT GUN CONTROL!WE ALREADY HAVE TO HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BUY A GUN!!

Schizophrenic Lib Hypocrites

'Critics were outraged that talk-show host Rush Limbaugh grossly insulted birth-control activist Sandra Fluke. Amid the attention, Fluke was canonized for her position that federal health-care plans should pay for the contraceptive costs of all women.

Yet in comparison to Fluke’s well-publicized victimhood, there has been a veritable news blackout for the trial of the macabre Dr. Kermit Gosnell, charged with killing and mutilating in gruesome fashion seven babies during a long career of conducting sometimes-illegal late-term abortions.

Had Gosnell’s aborted victims been canines instead of humans — compare the minimal coverage of the Gosnell trial with the widespread media condemnation of dog-killing quarterback Michael Vick — perhaps the doctor’s mayhem likewise would have been front-page news outside of Philadelphia.

Modern society also resorts to empty, symbolic moral action when it cannot deal with real problems.

So-called assault weapons account for less than 1 percent of gun deaths in America. But the country whips itself into a frenzy to ban them, apparently to prove that at least it can do something — without wading into the polarized racial and class controversies of going after illegal urban handguns, the real source of the nation’s high gun-related body count.

Not since the late-19th-century juxtaposition of the Wild West with the Victorian East has popular morality been so unbridled and yet so uptight.

In short, we have become a nation of promiscuous prudes.'

HEY STUPID! 90% of the American people want background checks on gun sales which is what this bill crafted by two Senators, Pat Toomey R PA and Joe Manchin D WV both of whom got high ratings from the NRA. Even the NRA was in favor of these checks in the past. Who doesn't want these checks? The gun manufacturers who just want to sell a lot of guns and don't give a good goddamn who they sell them to. They'd sell them to Al Qaeda if they could get away with it.
Gun laws in Connecticut and New York aren't confiscatory liar, no one's guns are being taken away.
You're an idiot!
I have no doubt that they do sell them to anyone, they just go through other countries. Drugs and arms makes the world go around.
