I don't disagree but that has nothing to do with my post. WikiLeaks wasn't even an issue in 2006. Federal Prosecutors did, however, confirmed that it was Bush and Chaney that authorized the release of classified information in the case of Valerie Plame and the Iraq invasion under the guise of personally "declassifying" the documents prior to release. Snakes.

She said nothing about post-tramatic stress. She made a straight forward statement, "All vets are mentally ill and the government should prevent them form owning firarms". Note she said all, she said nothing about vets who may suffer from post-tramatic stress. You should really think before you post, if you did so you would not come off ass an ignorant azz.

Why is it that none of these disturbed and hate-filled liberals, who take or steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers, children in schools, and Bill Ayers types bomb public places has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

Harvard Graduate, Nutty Alabama Professor Amy Bishop Far-Leftist terrorist, Obsessed with Obama... Liberal homicidal maniac..

Ft. Hood~~~ Nidal Malik Hasan Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Colorado Theater ~~~ James Holmes registered democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; deranged liberal

Chris Jordan Dorner ~~~ Registered Democrat, Deranged Obama Supporter, Ex-Cop, Ex-Naval Intelligence Officer, Cold Blooded Killer. College buddy James Usera (mentioned in manifesto) said LA COP killer Christopher Dorner 'is' a political Lefty! A HERO by sonicfiller and other deranged liberals.

Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings by your "culture of violence" are not angry old white men clinging to their guns and religion....

Democrat and guns are a recipe for Mental illness and public safety disasters.

It's the culture...

Are you really that brain dead??? That isn't what she said at all. You have obviously been brainwashed by Hate Talk Radio. Get help.

This is the DIRECT QUOTE of what she said in regards to ASSAULT WEAPONS...NOT GUNS IN GENERAL:

Feinstein, March 7, at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee discussing an amendment to her gun control bill that would exempt retired military from the so-called “assault weapons” ban::

"If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military.

The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.

So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to– if you’re going to do this — find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon."

Even though, according to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), PTSD sufferers are already prohibited by law from owning guns...any guns... IMO, Feinstein was certainly within her rights to voice her concerns. Especially since she stated she was willing to sit down and discuss the matter. Cons are always too fast to accept lies as truth.

God Bless every single one of these peace officers! We've been so beaten down this last several years that this story brought tears to my eyes because maybe, just maybe, there are some willing to stand up for the law abiding, Constitution loving, Country loving, true American citizens (black, white and everything in between). It's been hard to find very many of these heros in congress/senate, lawmakers, or the judicial system lately to stand for everyday citizens who just want to be left alone to live their lives in freedom, to help their families, work hard, worship as they see fit (or not), contribute to the groups or charities of their choice, & just enjoy life to its fullest without being molested by control freaks somewhere in power who send out their useful idiots to attack them. Again I say, God Bless these Sheriffs and Peace Officers. I think all of them should deputize citizens in their counties that want to participate and who have no criminal records or mental illness. What a difference it could make.

Sheriffs are normally elected and therefore must be responsive to the people.

Police are union-organized civil service agents of the state and cannot be removed by the people. As a result, they abuse their authority, knowing that they are safe from any public objections.

We need more elected sheriffs and fewer arrogant police.

Nice idea, but some veterans with PTSD are employed as police officers because of veteran preferences.

Ethanol has far less energy density than gasoline so, using it as an additive, lowers the overall energy inside each gallon of gas.

I think we've all read about the silly ENERGY IN vs ENERGY OUT ratio of Ethanol and its detrimental impact on the environment during it's creation. But Greens are mostly Liberals and that means that reason is kicked to the curb while touchy-feely emotions rule.

If horse whips had been subsidized way back there, we'd still be producing them in urban "Training" Centers for Affirmative Actions losers.

Once a subsidy is in place, prying it loose is next to impossible.

if they put a turbocharger on an ethanol engine it will get same energy as gasoline I was reading one time.
