We wouldn't be able to defend our rights with it. You have a semi-automatic rifle to protect your rights? Got it, the government will use RPGs, Drones, Tomahawk Missles, Sonic Emitters. So either you want whack jobs with those, or your out powered and the second amendment doesn't really matter a whole lot. You're call. In the end, that amendment is as pressing anymore, because it wasn't in the intent at that time that weapons tech would get so high.
With the first amendment however, you can speak out and make the people who would use those weapons, not use them based on rational reasoning. If thats taken away, people can become sheep with no one to state the other side.
Rubbish. Sheer stupidity and arrogance. They're all sacred and inviolate Rights. Only a treasonous fool argues that some Right they don't regard as being particularly critical to their personal liberty is any less sacred or inviolate than the others.

GTFO.

There are gun groups that argue that people should be able to own howitzers and AA weapons.Vigilance works both ways,So it does merit discussion
Nonsense.

Name these "gun groups."

People ARE already able to legally own howitzers and AA weapons - with the appropriate Federal license. So what's your problem?

This is a bullsh!t strawman argument, and so no - it doesn't merit any discussion at all - except among argumentative fools.

Yes - signs of intelligent life among the electorate, indeed:

"Analysis of election factors points to Romney win, University of Colorado study says"

"A University of Colorado analysis of state-by-state factors leading to the Electoral College selection of every U.S. president since 1980 forecasts that the 2012 winner will be Mitt Romney."

"The key is the economy, say political science professors Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver. Their prediction model stresses economic data from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, including both state and national unemployment figures as well as changes in real per capita income, among other factors."

“Based on our forecasting model, it becomes clear that the president is in electoral trouble,” said Bickers, also director of the CU in DC Internship Program."

"According to their analysis, President Barack Obama will win 218 votes in the Electoral College, short of the 270 he needs. And though they chiefly focus on the Electoral College, the political scientists predict Romney will win 52.9 percent of the popular vote to Obama’s 47.1 percent, when considering only the two major political parties."

“For the last eight presidential elections, this model has correctly predicted the winner,” said Berry.“The economy has seen some improvement since President Obama took office. What remains to be seen is whether voters will consider the economy in relative or absolute terms. If it’s the former, the president may receive credit for the economy’s trajectory and win a second term. In the latter case, Romney should pick up a number of states Obama won in 2008.”

Gosh, dunno. But if you have real reason to suspect they are, I'd get off Topix and start filing complaints with your State and Federal prosecutors right away - price gouging and collusion are serious violations of State and federal law.

Then again, if you're just jerking off over the usual BS partisan conspiracy theories, stick around - that's what Topix is for.

You're right about the south. It's up to me to decide who's right or wrong on here. The south epitomizes the poor white moron voting for the very rich.(Like lots of the losers on here.)
Just so they don't touch the same voting button as a gay or minority. Gandhi is in hell, but racist, hick homophobes go to heaven. Give me a break.
My priest used to try to get me pregnant when I was an altar boy. It's why I'm so into attacking men from the safety of my keyboard. If I argued like this in public, I'd lose to a teenager (just like in a fist fight). No copy and pasting in real life.

40% of children now receive free or subsidized school lunches, how did I ever survive on the peanut butter and jellie sandwiches brought from my humble home?

If Confucious were alive, he would say entitlements were the opium of the masses.

Trillions of dollars spent on anti-poverty programs since the Great Society and what do we have to show for it? The largest percentage of Americans living in poverty today.

Anti-poverty programs fuel massive political machines that mute opportunity and preserve the democratic plantation of those kept in poverty, generation after generation.

Printing more mney is a disaster for our country and Obama and Bernake don't give a shit. In the long run this will create huge inflation which we'll be paying almost double for things we pay for now.(See Weimar Republic using Google)

Obama wants to crash capitalism so he can install his European socialist model. Yeah, that's worked so well in Greece and socialist countries like cuba and North Korea.

Look at these pathetic liberals using stupid insults and bad ones at that. Just what does that suppose to do. You losers have been hiding and talking trash for over 4 years now. You're morons.

Since when will radical Muslim dictate our freedom of speech and expression.

Islam is made up of parts of all religions. Their Prophet Mohammad was a pedophile and bigmaist who married a young girl named Aisha and had sex with Aisah whne she was just nine years old. Mohammad also took many wives, but it was young Aisha who built up her husband Mohammad who was cleary a nut.

After Mohammad died Islam split into tow different factions, Sunni and Shia who have been murdering each other since the 7th century.

Obama has given the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt 1.5 billion dollars. Why?

It would have been more of an honor if Obama secured those US embassies on 9-11 so they wouldn't have died in vain.

Obama's foreign policy has been a total failure. Obama Cairo apology tour has been a total failure.

Obama's help with the arab spring has been a total failure.

Barack Hussein Obama has been a total failure.

Two more US troops killed yesterday. Al-Qaeda blames Obama's drone attacks while the liberal media is trying to fool Americans saying it wa about a movie. I wouldn't believe Obama or the liberal media for any news.

Obama went to the David Letterman show rather than meet with the Prime Minister of Israel for a special meeting about Iran's nuclear advances.

That shows Obama's priorities. Golf, going on liberal talk shows and going to fundraisers. Zero acting like a US president.

It's a good thing for obama that Romney came along, even obama was getting tired of blaming Bush, now obama can blame his failed Arab Spring policy on a
apt description of failed policy, "prematurely made"
by Romney, as described by obamas' press corp. Yes, obamas press, journalism, a checks and balance in a free society, is long dead, save a very few outlets.

How preposterous is it to watch the Secretary of State blame a film for a coordinated sophisticated assassination of an ambassador of the United States on the anniversary of 9-11. And then further elevating the significance of said film by doing so. Will the State dept now monitor all films made in the USA to comment on their importance or lack of?

At this point in 1980 carter led Reagan by 10% points, we all know how that turned out, don't we.

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked..'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.
There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.
'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.
She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.
She kept thanking me for my kindness.'It's nothing', I told her..'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.'
'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked,'Could you drive
through downtown?'
'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..
'Oh, I don't mind,' she said.'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice.
I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening.'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..'The doctor says I don't have very long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.
'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.
For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.
We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.
Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.
As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said,'I'm tired.Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.
Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.
I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.
'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse.
'Nothing,' I said
'You have to make a living,' she answered.
'There are other passengers,' I responded.
Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.She held onto me tightly.
'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said.'Thank you.'
I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut.It was the sound of the closing of a life..
I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day,I could hardly talk.What if that woman had gotten an angry driver,or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?
On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.
We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.
But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.
Uplifting story, thank you.
