As you should know by now, CT is as full of gun nuts as anywhere else. It's an American disease. Fear and mistrust of your neighbors, the cops, the Gov't, and so on.......

Gunner fits the profile, but to my knowledge he hasn't been around since Obama beat Rmoney.

Grampy?? Naw, he just likes jokes. Lame jokes.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.

And today Bush has a higher approval rating than Obama.

I rest my case.

Pew Research poll shows:
39% blame Republicans.
36% blame Obama.
17% blame both.

The gap blaming primarily Republicans is quickly narrowing.
Hell, Batty, I rather tend to doubt the veracity of a poll that shows twenty-seven percent blaming Obama for the 1995 shutdown... a reverse clairvoyance conspiracy?

debunked, but you keep passing around the lies.
Sorry, Lily, your "debunked" knee jerk reaction was proven "bunked" when I posted the government website and the number was there. Using one of the letters corresponding to each number, it would spell out the message you hoped was debunked.

Of course, you can choose one of the other two letters to match each number, but the odds of just one of the three letters matching each number to spell out that particular phrase still has to be astronomical.

What countries were on the UN Security Council when the US sought permission to remove Saddam?
Did the US have to 'ask' for permission to use force in Iraq?
None of those nations could have tipped Saddam off?

It really was disgusting. The Republicans shut down government then have the nerve to berate a park ranger doing her job. Disgusting does not begin to describe his behavior or that of Michelle Bachmann's photo ops. Neither of them understands how public law and chain of command works.
It's clear these idiots believe they're on a higher plane than regular Americans.

They need to get kicked out of their ivory towers and look at the real world for a change.

Probably all the more reason he wanted her to die - even by starvation - a slow agonizing death.
Would you like to die that way, Lily? No matter what your mental condition? You don't think Terri suffered in spite of her mental state literally being starved to death?
It was nothing short of barbaric and the entire nation had to watch it. I can't even imagine being one of her family members who begged to take care of her and were helpless to end her suffering.
Would you be able to watch a loved one starve to death even if you didn't think they'd want to live in their present condition?
Carol, with all due respect, there was no one home. The autopsy showed her brain had liquified. There was no function. She had been dead a long time with only the machines keeping the body going.

Lily, you'd be a liar if you said you'd watch a wounded animal starve to death even if they had a head injury.
But we know liberals have such little regard for human life, it's understandable your stance on how Terri was sentenced to die.
Out of sight, out of mind. That's all that matters.
We are more humane to animals; they shoot horses don't they?
My cat had diabetes; I had him put to sleep. It's the right thing to do. My nephew kept his diabetic cat alive with insulin, then she went blind and was falling down and walking into walls, they had to keep her in a closet to be safe to eat, this went on for years. Why? I think it's absurd. Give them the shot and let them go. Keeping that brain dead woman alive for 14 years was insane; it was because of the parents religious fanaticism and then the Governor Bush got involved, and the President got involved. How absolutely ridiculous.

The Terri Schiavo case ruined the careers of many Repugnants.

Ask Bill Frist.

It was a case of you supporting the Gov't over individual family rights.

You supported the Gov't over her husband.

And yet, you now clainm to be for Gov't keeping their nose out of people's affairs.

Square the circle or admit you were wrong in supporting Gov't overreach in the Terri Schiavo case.

And yes, they were wrong, as proven by court cases in FL and at the Federal level.

We don't care about people, you say. Yet we're the ones who want all Americans to have health insurance, while your side is on record as saying 'let them die'.(Repugnant debates of 2012)

You are so bass ackwards, it's sad.
