Clinton on rural folk:
"Don’t trivialize gun culture
Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.
“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.
“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said.“I know because I come from this world."
... he said that he understands the culture that permeates a state like Arkansas — where guns are a longstanding part of local culture.
“A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing,” he told the Democratic financiers.“Or they’re living in a place where they don’t have much police presence. Or they’ve been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it all.”
Of course, you won't find that quote on CBS ABC NBC MSNBC CNN NYT LA Times or WASH POST.
The democrat machine hates people who live in rural areas.
Clinton is basicially right. Our culture IS different. Guns are a part of life in rural America, and they are at times necessary tools for the protection of family and livestock. Hunting is a passion out in the country and is both a link to generations past and a rite of passage.
HOWEVER, I do not think most rural residents of states like ours think they meed a 50 round magazine and an assault weapon to survive, and while I agree that no American citizen deserves to be looked down upon, those who equate what Obama is proposing with Hitler and Stalin, are WAY over the top.
The Democratic Party does not hate people who live in rural areas, but that demographic votes primarily Republican. A party reacts to the concerns of it's constituiencies and rural residents are no longer a Democratic constituiency and haven't been for a very long time.

This is the type of the AR 15 that killed the little kids at Sandy Hook!

Dang, Leroy. I gotta get me ona them thangs. That was COOL!

Two things I noticed. When shooting on simulated auto, it was extremely inaccurate, and it emptied the clip in about 4 seconds.

In order to kill those kids, he would have had to have carried 10 to 15 clips with him, and the whole thing would have been over in less than a minute.

What would the difference have been to carry 15 magazines for his Glock handgun? He still would have had to pull the trigger each time, and it would take much less time to reload. Those AR15 magazines are bulky, heavy, and you can't see where they go from above. The Glock could have been reloaded in about 3 seconds.

The one thing we haven't heard from anyone. Was the shooter wearing ear and eye protection. He could have suffered hearing loss.

Wanted:'Adventurous woman' to give birth to Neanderthal man - Harvard professor seeks mother for cloned cave baby
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-22654...
"what woman would want to give birth to a Neanderthal baby?
Yet this incredible scenario is the plan of one of the world’s leading geneticists, who is seeking a volunteer to help bring man’s long-extinct close relative back to life.
Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago.
His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer.
He said his analysis of Neanderthal genetic code using samples from bones is complete enough to reconstruct their DNA.
He said:‘Now I need an adventurous female human.
Wow...and here I thought we already had way too many of them, that were born the regular way. Lol!

As far as me giving birth again...Honey, that Ship sailed a long time ago and frankly, I'm glad!:)

Since he was obviously planning on commiting suicide when he finished the killing, I doubt that he was worried about losing his hearing.
Also, you forget that his Mom used to take him to the Shooting Range, with her. So, even though it's unclear whether he practiced shooting, he more than likely was used to handling a heavy "long Gun".
And one more point, how good would his aim have to be, to shoot and kill a Group of Children huddled together?
You Posters can believe all the conspiracy theories that you want to, but just remember that there were some Adults who survived and they KNOW who it was and exactly what happened. Also, most of the Children were ages 5 to 10 years old and they know what happened and who did it, as well....especially the Lone Survivor in one classroom of 17, I think, that saw him kill all of her Classmates. she only survived by playing dead...which took an amazing amount of Intelligence, Quick-thinking, & Self-Discipline, IMO, while her Classmates and Teacher were all being "mowed down" around her! I'm not sure that I could have done it, frankly!

[QUOTE who="Really Sassy"]<quoted text>
THAT is exactly the attitude of more and more People
I never thought that I would be quoting thinkprogress.com , but I find that I must. I googled mass killings and it was the first site that came up with a timeline of them. I was looking for some kind of correlation – in fact I was wondering how many of them were being committed by young, middle class to affluent, white males.

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/12/14/1...

As you peruse the list, you’ll find the big name killings, like Newtown, the Aurora CO theater, and the Gabby Giffords shooting, which were indeed, committed by people who fit that description, but you’ll also find a slew of people who killed spouses, employers, religious leaders, and a couple with racial motivations.

But when you open your eyes, one thing is glaringly obvious. Of the 29 mass killings listed by Thinkprogress, more than half (15) occurred during the Obama administration, and half of those (8) occurred in 2012.

I guess progress comes with a downside. Food for thought.

That's strange. I heard the ME state in his news conference that the kids were killed by .223 long rifle ammo. Can't fire that out of 2 9mm pistols. The AR-15 was found next to the shooters body. They did, however, find a shotgun in the trunk of the car.

First you are complaining about 20 round clips, then 30, now it is up to 50. What's the matter? Do you feel your previous arguments are too weak? Suppose you have a pack of wolves killing your livestock, How many rounds would you want to be able to fire if you find and encounter them? Just saying....

He didn't have to explain himself to anyone troll. If you had the good sense to read before starting to build yourself up you would have read that he chose to get himself worked up over it. So shit your mouth you horrible looking old creature and if you think that anything you have to offer is needed it isn't. You are why most people hate to come onto the state wide links. You make people disgusted watching you fawn over every man you think you may get a chance at. Mind your own business and shut you mouth for once.

Poor communist tyrant, Cesar Chavez, who just 6 months ago claimed he was cancer-free, is in Cuber for treatment. But that didn’t stop him from doing a photo shoot to try to fend off claims that he’s expired.

Here you can see Chavez waving to the crowd:

Here he’s consulting with a trusted advisor:

But you can’t work 24/7, so here he’s enjoying a boatride:

Obama couldn't make it on account that he just got back from vacation, and didn't want it to look like he's taking advantage.

At the feet of Obama? And all this time I thought you were making fun of those who call him the messiah.

you're right. EIGHT mass killings in one year and fifteen since he took office Obama took office should be ignored.

Now, if this had happend during Bush's.. Hey that's it. Blame it on Bush.

Listened to it - as I have all presidential inauguration speech in my adult lifetime.

About the only thing he said that is of worth:

"The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a Republic, a government of, and by, and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed."

Other than that, it was all window dressing as usual.
