The Conservative Paranoid Mind
There’s a common thread linking conservatives’ positions on gun control, immigration, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: the constant need to stoke fear.
Conservatism, I fear (so to speak), can never be cleansed of this need to instill fear. Whether it’s of black people or of street thugs or of immigrants or of terrorists or of jackbooted government agents, it’s how the conservative mind works. I don’t even think it’s always cynical and manipulative; conservatives often do see enemies under every bed. But that doesn’t mean they’re there, and it most definitely doesn’t mean the rest of us ought to make law and policy based on their nightmares.

Americans don’t believe in shredding Constitution to fight terror
Defending the civil liberties of suspected terrorists is generally not considered a popular position. And yet, in a bit of a surprise, a new poll released today finds that a plurality worries more about government trampling constitutional rights while battling terrorism than it does about government not doing enough to fight it. From the Post:
Which worries you more: that the government will not go far enough to investigate terrorism because of concerns about constitutional rights, or that it will go too far in compromising constitutional rights in order to investigate terrorism?
Will not go far enough: 41
Will go too far: 48
Interestingly, despite the fact that the push for Tsarnaev to be held as an enemy combatant is coming from GOP officials, Republican respondents to the poll are even more strongly tilted towards worrying about government compromising constitutional rights, by 56-34. Conservatives tilt this way by 46-41. Democrats also agree by 48-43.
On top of this, the poll was taken from April 17-18 — well after the bombings had taken place, on April 15th.

Report: Fisker lost $557K per electric vehicle sold

Luxury hybrid car maker Fisker Automotive has spent $660,000 in taxpayer dollars and venture capital funds for each car it sold — totalling $1.3 billion, according to a report. The company’s Fisker Karma sold for about $103,000 per vehicle, meaning the company took a hit of $557,000 every time it…

HEY STUPID! There's a huge difference between providing financial and logistical aid and the presence of individuals like Lafayette, Kosciusko and Pulaski to train our troops and sending in our armed forces invade a country. The French fleet did blockade the English at Yorktown but they never sent in ground troops in large numbers.
You're an idiot!
We would have lost the Revolutionary War without France coming to our "logistic" and financial aid. We were not held hostage by an evil tyrant who buried thousands in mass graves or tortured anyone even suspected of overthrowing their regime.

Who were we going to send financial aid to in Iraq?

Do you support Obama's "right war" and still being in Afghanistan and now Pakistan?

Afghan women have won back basic rights in education, voting and employment since 2001, but fears are growing that such gains could be traded away as Western forces prepare to leave and the Afghan government seeks peace talks with the Taliban.

Just in case some forget who the enemy is and why.
They gas their own women.
Wonder what would have happened if Obama had not continued and escalated the war in Afghanistan after the war in Iraq ended. Also now in Pakistan.
Not making judgments. Just curious.
Now in Pakistan? Kind of been on the same dark age, barbaric AQ element for awhile there, when it comes to females and education.

The truth is, "DemocRATS" sounded off like foghorns about Saddam, including Bill Clinton in "1998" when he told us on December 16th, he ordered military forces to strike "Nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs"!!!!!!

Doctors are overtreating and overdiagnosing for one of two reasons - to protect their own butts or just because they can and get more money.
According to the World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems last produced in 2000, the United States came it at 37 just behind Costa Rica!!
http://www.photius.com/rankings/healthranks.h...
We have obviously mistaken quality health care for expensive procedures and expensive medication - of which both are many times totally unnecessary.
We're digging ourselves in a hole of ever increasing costs of expensive and unnecessary health care without even realizing it. Obamacare will not solve the real crisis of unaffordable and unnecessary health care.
I don't buy the WHO's health rankings for one moment. When oil sheiks and other extremely wealthy types stop coming here for their treatments, I may worry a bit.

What other country with our variety of people and 320 million of us ranks ahead of us?

Excellent point. Have you ever seen a program or agenda from Democrats lately that has helped anything?
Democrats have no respect for the Constitution. Connecticut just passed an anti-freedom gun law that does nothing except harass law abiding citizens and does absolutely ZERO to prevent a future act against children at schools.
Your post just pointed out how fake Democrat/Socialist gun laws are.
Democrats are idiots and liberalism is a mental disorder.
Anything from the Republicans in the past 5 years to actually help us recover from the last Republican administration???

Here is the latest right whiner gun thinking.

If we expand background checks, the criminals will just get their guns somewhere else.

You fricken right whiners parade this excuse around like a prostitute with a new boob job.

But do you think of what you are saying?

1) You are saying that criminals currently utilize the loopholes in the current system.

2) Making it harder for criminals to buy guns is a bad thing.

Dumbass right whiner thinking at its best.

Without larger capacity clips & a semi-automatoc rifle. fewer kids would have been killed in Newtown. Something the Right whiners don;t give a sh*t about.

More than a dozen civilized countries provided such materials to Saddam during the Iraq-Iran War. They were intended for medical research.

In spite of the UN Human Rights Committee voting 11 to 8 that the Kurish massacre was not a violation of human rights, Reagan condemned it.

libs talk of fear and never mention their own. The fear of personal responsibility,the fear of haveing to provide for themselves,the fear of the rights of others , the fear of consequence,and the fear of standing on their own without a nanny goverment to care for them from cradle to grave. Libs cowar in fear over these things and cry for laws to ensure their iresponsibilty will be protected.
the fear of the rights of others?

like conservatives being fearful of someone citing the Constitution when it doesn't fit the right wing fear meme of the day?

i think i just made a joke. most of the time they could care less about the Constitution.

That's why you impeached Clinton over a BJ and let Bush off the hook for lying us into a war that killed thousands.

If you didn't think SAaddam was tryin to obtain every weapon known to man, you're woefully ignorant and likely dumb to boot.

Fisker Automotive was founded in 2007 and took advantage of local, state and federal tax incentives and grants that existed at "that" time.
