Anyone? All this crap about gun owners & the types of guns they own. Why aren't you as upset over the fact that congressional members kids do NOT have to pay back their school loans when their parents have more $$ than they can possibly spend? Why not complain that those same politicians CONTINUE to be paid once they leave office regardless of how long they served? Why not complain that every President is paid for life once they leave office? WHY NOT COMPLAIN THAT OPRICK IS HOPING THE LAW RESTRICTING 2 OFFICE TERMS BE CHANGED TO 3 TERMS? Why not complain that we keep getting taxed more & gov't spends more & asks for even more & then votes themselves pay raises? Why not complain that politicians do not contribute to Medicare or any other of the crappy programs they shove down our throats & expect us to live with? Why isn't anyone complaining about the fact that politicians think this universal healthcare manure is so great that they exempted themselves from it? Why is nobody complaining about the fact that funding to our service ppl has been CUT to the point they aren't being issued cold weather gear because it's not in the budget & some of them are paying for their own food as well? BUT we can send millions to other countries to help them do whatever the hell it is the money goes for all on the tax payers dime yet America is in hock up to our eyeballs. I'm sick of this crap! Our leadership SUCKS! Oprick is nothing more than a modern day pied piper & those who kiss his a$$ will be given a seat on the wagon & the rest will be running along behind trying to jump on. There are many more issues that the country should be in an uproar over & gun control is picked as the hot topic. Get real ppl! WAKE THE HELL UP

Use paragraphs for readability. By the way, there is no "universal" health care.

I got this one: Because it is bu11sh1t.

New York Rep. Jose Serrano is the one behind this, not "Oprick". He has been behind it for FIFTEEN YEARS and "the resolution has no sponsors, never got a vote last year in the Republican-controlled House, needs two-thirds support in both chambers and ratification from roughly 75 percent of state legislatures."

We will have a single payer health care system, legalized drug use, national marriage equality and have outlawed abortion long, long before we will ever have a 3 term president.

Because most of the people on this site don't have a clue what's going on in Washington. All they worry about is bashing someone who pissed them off, complaining because they couldn't smoke in jail, what time the stores open that sell beer and when they will be able to by liquor, figuring out a way to get out of paying child support, finding another baby daddy so their food stamp card/check will get bigger, etc. These are the important things on Murray Topix.

People on Topix do NOT debate.

People here think they are right and if you dare disagree then in three or four posts out comes the ad hominems and other fallacies.

Topix is very representative of Congress in that talking about an issue never changes the opinion of the other because no one debates or discusses with an open mind.

We all have an agenda, including me.

The way to debate is present your opinion and back it up with OBJECTIVE facts, not because Rush Limbaugh or some biased website said so.

If you WANT to debate, there is an important second part. You must listen with an open mind and respect both the opponent AND their opinion.

If you think they are wrong, try to convince them, but to do so you must consider that they just may be right. Maybe check a few facts for yourself.

Different opinions are, in fact, what made this nation great. When two people can come together and not compromise, but optimize, amazing things can happen.

But as long as we continue to think we are right and no one else could be right, we put ourselves in the same class with Mormons, who think THEIR way is the only way to heaven.

God forbid, we just might be wrong, our egos just cannot handle that.

Many blessings.

Please notice I didn't say Oblahma is behind it. I did say he is "hoping". What residing Pres wouldn't be "hoping" for a chance at a 3rd term? I'm seeing this country more divided than it has ever been & it's nmot likely to get any better with the bozos we have in power. Hell if I was pulling down ther kinda Franklins & benefits those yahoos pull down I'd NEVER want to leave the position. I dare say I don't know anyone who would want to give that up.

OK Oh God of correct writing skills you got me. It is called a "rant" & I've read more than one penned by yours truly. Proper writing skills doesn't make it any more or less. You also caught me when I misspoke & called it "universal" when I should have said national.(watch out for the indented paragraph)
I also notice you jumped on the trivial things you found wrong with my "rant" instead of offering any intelligent insights or opinions to anything else in the "rant". Have a great day

Rogue, you are very dangerous to our "leaders."

See, they WANT us to fight each other. When we keep fighting each other there is no way we, THE PEOPLE can stand against our so called leaders and take our nation back.

Then again, many are content to believe Limbaugh or the liberal media and take whatever Washington throws at us and be ignorant of the plutocracy of the political class that has taken control of this still great (for now) nation.

I'm just pointing out that very few people will read something that long without paragraphs. I usually do not. I read yours. There are several errors of fact. I just pointed out one.
