What I asked Ray was this: What would Republicans say if Democrats passed a CR with the rider banning handguns. Would Republicans negotiate on the gun ban by perhaps banning certain models?
We know the crybaby America threatening Republicans did a similar thing when they tied their approval to the CR to defunding & delaying the ACA. Republicans demand that Democrats negotiate on actions against the ACA.
Now, an intelligent person would understand that the handgun ban is as much a poison pill to Republicans as the defunding & delaying the ACA is to Democrats.
But we all know Ray just ain't too bright. I
Ray, of course, dodged the question. As did every right whiner.
"real dumb"
Even a majority of democrats in both the house and senate know passing a gun control bill you desire would lead to only one thing. Their losing the next time they were up for election.

Since Obama isn't bowing to the terrorists in the House, cons should be exuberant.

Are you really that lost on what's going on?
It'd be like you trying to make payments on a fourth hot rod when the bank is threatening to foreclose on your home.

You'd have to sit down and figure out a budget by first selling three of the hot rods and maybe all four and buy a used car.

And then go from there. Cut and slash anything and everything you don't absolutely need to keep your home.

Then you won't have to keep receiving the same threats down the road.

Obama just doesn't want to give up those hot rods.

Katie Couric show headed for the crapper

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/katie-c...

Katie insiders say the problem is that Couric has refused to shape shows with softer features to appeal to daytime's key 25-to-54-year-old female demo, insisting instead on the kind of harder-edged interviews she enjoyed on Today and her stint as anchor of CBS Evening News.

"She has a complete and utter disdain for the audience she needs to appeal to," says one former employee. "In her mind, the Today show was [the model]-- professional women getting ready for work. Anyone home after 9 o'clock are people she has no interest in appealing to. But she also loved the $20 million paycheck." A source close to Couric dismisses that characterization and says, "It is because of Katie's great respect for her audience that she introduces fresh perspectives and substantive material into the show."

You & dumbwaiter are dumber than sh*t.
You want to how GD dumb you two are?
You run around b*tching about subsidies to help people buy health insurance. Does the government give these people cash?
They give the insurance company "cash" in their name.

Your ONE definition does not outweigh my six.

You stated it as your goal.
So let me get this straight. According to you, I'm a "no-life moron", but you are publicly admitting your mission on TOPIX (of all places) is to expose lies, ignorance, greed and hypocrisy (on TOPIX). Um, most intelligent people would call that a no-life mission. And to top that off, you choose as your tactic of this no-life mission to create a few dozen unique email addresses so you can then create a few dozen unique (well, as unique and you can get while trying to mimic "Eman") Topix accounts. Somehow, that seem sane to you? Incredible. Is someone getting a government grant to study you? They should,
Yes.

Another thing....
If you want to give a post like this credibility, you have to tell everyone what the profit margin Exxon works with is. Then, so everyone will have a point of reference, compare that profit margin with other companies in other industries, like Microsoft, for example.
As your post is now, it doesn't say a goddam thing. It's just ignorant ranting to an ignorant readership.
Problem is with Microsoft it is a choice any consumer can make to buy or not to buy. On the other side is big oil that 99% of all Americans must use. Yours is the ONLY consumer good that must be used by everyone but has no Federal regulation of its pricing. Any utility in America is under pricing regulations. The lack of regulation is the reason America pays for Exxon to make $49 Billion in profit while they are shipping America's oil and LNG to China. The cost of oil companies making the most profit of any company ever in world history has been paid for with the hard earned money of the lower and middle class worker. You know, all the people that you so fondly look down upon.
