Changing an Amendment takes an average 7 years to make it's way though the required hoops.
First it must pass two thirds of both Houses of Congress then it's send to the states. Once it's ratifited by 3/4 of the 50 State Legislatures then it becomes an amendment.
The odds of that happening is very low.

NOTICE the date of 2009 when this was posted on Fact Check. Were you upset about this when it was proposed in 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2007? All those bills died, and so will this one, so don't you think it is a waste of time trying to stir up outrage over it?

Posted on June 18, 2009
It’s true that New York Rep. Jose Serrano, a Democrat, introduced a bill (H.J.RES.5) on Jan. 6, when Congress opened, proposing the repeal of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which limits presidents to two terms. Repealing that amendment would require ratification by three-fourths of the states.

The bill was referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties and is sitting there now. It has no cosponsors.

Serrano introduced or cosponsored the same proposal in 1997 and 1999, when Democrat Bill Clinton was president, and again in 2001 just days before Republican George Bush was sworn in for his first term. He also introduced it in 2003, 2005 and 2007, all before Barack Obama even announced he was running for president.

All of these bills died in committee without ever coming to a vote. None of Serrano’s bills attracted any cosponsors, except for the 1997 and 1999 versions, each of which was cosponsored by Rep. Chris Shays of Connecticut, a Republican.

What are your suggestions as to what to do about these mass murders ? And don't say arming teachers is the answer, please.
There is probably a lot of different issues.But considering that three 747s, three towers, and a hole in the Pentagon,along with a lot of dead Americans were instigated with a couple of box cutters -What?

Our wonderful Federal government, diligently protecting it’s citizens, has come up with another crisis that must be dealt with immediately. That’s right, in it’s zeal to push the populace into electric cars, one of the brighter light bulbs at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), figured out that electric cars don’t make enough noise, which puts pedestrians at risk.

So they have come up with some “noise” standards for electric cars.

That’s right, your Prius is going to make fake noises.

“NHTSA estimates the odds of a hybrid vehicle being involved in a pedestrian crash is 19 percent higher compared with traditional gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. For a bicycle crash, it's 38 percent higher.

"Our proposal would allow manufacturers the flexibility to design different sounds for different makes and models while still providing an opportunity for pedestrians, bicyclists and the visually impaired to detect and recognize a vehicle and make a decision about whether it is safe to cross the street," said NHTSA Administrator David Strickland.

Here’s one suggestion:

But even that is unlikely since the deadliest attack by a single shooter in US history was at Va Tech where Cho killed 32 and injured 17 before killing himself. The guns he used had only the standard 10 round clips. If you want to do the damage and prepare for it,as they all seem to do, very little can stop you. But, it s seems one sure fire way to stop most all of them is a good guy with a gun. Whether they are shot by armed security as in San Antonio or, as more often is the case, take their own life when police arrive.
Unlikely ? Probably, but it would stop for a moment the spraying of bullets as the shooter changes clips or reloads. That MAY provide an opportunity to run, get to better cover or jump him.
I can't see anything else that could be done legislatively to limit the killing, let alone stop it.
If guns are the answer,(and I have REPEATEDLY posted that I don't have the answer) then we need to be prepared to pay for an armed trained police officer for every school in the country.
I understand your point....and I actually agree with most of it, but I STILL see no reason for anyone to own a 30 or a 50 round clip and I own and been around guns and hunting all of my life. I would like to preserve our second amendment rights AND protect school kids as best we can and I am sure you want the same thing.

Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent.

Of course, dozens sought to blame it all (as usual) on President George W. Bush.

But in fact, it was Mr. Obama who enacted the “holiday,” and, to be clear, the tax cut that he pushed throughout the campaign — remember? 98 percent of Americans will get a cut under his plan?— was really the extension of the Bush tax suts. Thus, it was Mr. Obama who raised taxes on millions of Americans, not Mr. Bush.

"Under this deal, 172 House Democrats voted to make the Bush rates permanent for all but 0.5 percent of American taxpayers. What that means is, is that they can no longer tax the middle class."

Geez, you guys talk in circles and contradict each other on a regular basis. I think you should get together and figure out which tax cuts you are talking about at any given time. You do know that the Bush tax cuts (rates) and the payroll tax cuts (SS) were two different things, right?

President Obama's pick as Secretary of Defense, Hagel, I believe is a good one. The former Republican Senator will face a big fight by House Republicans(more evidence of Republicans eating their own) because of his position of Israel and Iran.
People of America, if you invest or own a business, the second Israel attacks Iran gas will go up to over $5.00 a gallon, and our weak economy will go into reverse.

If the wealthy create jobs, where are they??? They've had a least 12 years and we're at 7.8% Unemployment and as you Teapublicans like to point out, it would be 16% if they counted everybody that's stopped looking for work because it's useless, so WHERE ARE THE JOBS that the wealthy have created...according to you? That's really a very Poor argument to make, considering the current Jobless crisis!
And your "fair and balanced" Fox Fake News...fair and balanced, what a joke... is not the only One station that presents both sides, they all do, except when it is an Interview and not a discussion! so, that is also a silly argument to make, but it points out that you don't even know what any other Station does, but you have never watched any, but Fox Fake News! That's an Addiction or Brainwashing that you crave reinforcement of each and everyday...or both! And I think you Teapublicans are scared to death of the Truth...and I posted an Opinion Article from an Opinion Writer from the Washington Post, saying the same thing , as told to him by some Republicans! They said that republicans are scared to death, but it wasn't clear to me, why? Paranoia, maybe, I don't know! But, I believe he was telling the truth because it shows in everything you, and Ones like you, say and do! But, what are you scared of, is the question? Scared that you won't get your way about everything? If that's it, well, welcome to the real world! We Democrats are used to it...we had G.W. Bush and Cheney for 8 years, remember? I still wasn't scared, but i was Pis*ed most of the time. If Fox Fake News is incited that much fear in you, then STOP warching it! It's Fake, anyway, made up Crap! They don't even expect you to take it seriously, Roger Ailes , himself, has said so. I heard him, it's not hearsay....I saw the Interview!
Steven Colbert is more truthful and his schtick is satire! Geez!"
DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT UNDER BUSH THE UNEMPLOYMENT WAS 4.6%. The last two years of Bush the unemployment when to the sky. Why, The Dem/Libs were in power in the houses of legislature. Really, who do you think create jobs? I would like to know. I do know that at least one of my employees will get the boot, since I have to pay higher taxes for them and myself. Should I give them you address as one of the DEM/LIBs that helped cause this? Check out the Sparta Expositor for Monday Jan 7, 2013, Mr. Ed Wood has a nice letter to the Editor. Kind of hard to disagree when he has the bill there to prove it. An now it is obvious they will try and take our guns away. Oh, Yes he is a bonafide Republican unlike myself a committed conservative Independent.

DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT IT WAS BUSH'S POLICIES AND BUSH'S DEREGULATION THAT CAUSE THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE AND THE SUBSEQUENT LOSS OF JOBS ???
I just posted an article from a well-known Business cite, yesterday, telling what the Unemployment rate was when Bush took Office and what it was when he left Office, and why the increase! I would suggest that you read it!
Bush , with Cheney's help, including breaking lots of tie vote counts in the Senate, that railroaded all of the changes through Congress that caused the Recession and it actually started the last YEAR of his Presidency, but REALLY went into crisis-mode in Nov. of 2008! That's when Hank Paulson worked the massive Wall Street Bailout Scam on the American People that I've been trying to get People like you to read about, for two days! But, all you People ant to do is attack the Author! It is true! I was glued to the TV, the whole time, wondering if we were going into another Great Depression! Watched when Bush called Obama and McCain in off the campaign trail to attend the Crisis Meeting at the White House, watched to see if Congress would approve the Bailout to keep the Country from going bankrupt on the following Monday, the supposed Deadline to save the Nation and the keep the Stock Market from crashing!
I LIVED IT...obviously you didn't! So, don't you dare lecture me about ANYTHING that happened during that time!!!
