Lets pretend zimmerman was found guilty of murder. Should his right to bare (just for leo) arms be restored after he pays his debt to society?
Homer doesn't pretend. You know my feeling about the right to bare bear beer arms, they should be kept down at the local armory.

Please point out a single government agency that runs anything in a more economical manner than private industry. More government involvement in health care means higher cost, the higher costs picked up by the tax payer.

So true.

So in your world, the military should also be outsourced!

Right to "bare arms" Hah__you might find the irony in that "Larry the Cable Guy" actually lived in Sanford Florida until about the time Zimmerman followed and then killed the unarmed youth.

Oh, and maybe you can crank up that superb search engine of yours and learn about Travares McGill who was shot in the back by armed security guards in Sanford on July 16 2005. That one was a real doozy. And then the more recent case of Sherman Ware who was beaten by the son of a ranking SPD officer and even while the entire event was captured on video__the perp was excused without an investigation.

You're clueless about these matters__you should probably check out the topix game threads or that underwear thread on the offbeat forum where Grampy and his new eyelids hang out.

That wasn't what Obama promised in 2008. He was a sitting junior Senator who thought he knew something. He didn't know what he was talking about then,and he still doesn't have the answers now. Why should the Republicans forget their principles,morals and values to help Obama advance his radical left wing agenda?

So rightwingers claim he won't work with the Republicans and your contention is that they should not work with him. Maybe you folks should argue amongst yourselves.

Here in Texas we are able to fire just because we own the business. I don't need a reason as it should be. Why should my employees tell me what I can and can not do?
If these employees want a say in my business they need to invest money then We can share.
If my employees don't like the way I do business they can look for work elsewhere but they can't get the union to try to make me change.
We had a levi company here, employeed lots of otherwise un employeeable people and three times they struck them and three times the business closed. The last time for good. They are in Mexico now with 3-4 hundred jobs.
You can thank the Unions for that.
I don't know what planet you live on bra but, you need to stay there. The fact that you believe you should be able to fire a worker because you feel like it, shows your lack of forethought. Your way of thinking only can exist if it's legal for that fired employee to play with your life, the same way you played with their livelihood. You shouldn't be able to fire a person for no reason in any state. A job is a commitment on both parties behalf. There has to be a reason, not excuse to break that commitment or, the employer should be held negligent! If not for unions, you republicans would operate under strict guidelines of deregulation, putting you workers at risk. You're a glass half empty dude. I can smell your greed. Your business ain't shit without your workers.

we knew somebody was lying.

Tim Scott Didn’t Speak At MLK Event Because He Declined Invitation To Attend

....a staff assistant to Scott, Rachel Shelbourne, sent a reply to the invitation that read in part, "Unfortunately, the Senator will be in South Carolina during this time, so he will be unable to attend the event. Please do, however, keep him in mind for future events you may be hosting."

Calling obama boy might be racist, but calling the potus is not.

So you were saying earlier he won't work with them and now you are saying they shouldn't work with him. Please pick a side and stick with it.

Why don't you discuss this with Flack and your fellow rightwingers and come up with a consensus.
