LOL! Talk about big government! Maybe the government can tattoo everyone who acts a little iffy so that they can't get a gun.
Anyone can get a gun on the street faster than going to the store and buying one; those nuts aren't applying for a permit. They're stealing the guns from people who hoard them in their homes. Perhaps we ought to hold the actual gun owners and their manufacturers financially responsible for the carnage.
You are saying that the government should ban guns; video games and movies; what's next? history books? It's already happening in Texas. Schools? Oh, that's on the top of the list. Abortion? Oh, forgot, that's the number one. Ban gay people? You're nuts.
Ya know swilly, you're right. I literally have people lining up in droves to steal all my guns.

Good thing too; it makes them easier to load for disposal afterwards. I bought one of those tractors with spears on the front for loading haybales.....

Where is democrat Keith Ellison from Minnesota? Ellison has a great sympathy for Islamist radicals, a fifth columnist, someone whose status within the House of Representatives provides cover for anti-American discourse and, possibly, anti-American actions. Where is Keith Ellison holding up the children children children and using them to go after the moslems verbally--isn't that what they do to the Republicans? Come on Muzzie Ellison hold those children up and demand that Islam be crucified for the deaths of the children, by the hands of the moslems, in your own state--start a discussion about how horrible these moslems are-use a broad brush and paint them all--you do it all the time when talking about Republicans, Patriots and the Tea Party--it is about time you use your CAIR paid mouth against the Religion of Peace. I dare you.

Children wait next to a body outside the Westgate Mall
Even by Religion of Peace standards it was an
unusually bloody weekend, with nearly 300 people
massacred by Holy Warriors in suicide attacks in Yemen,
a funeral in Iraq, the shopping mall in Kenya and a
brutal double bombing at a church in Pakistan.

What is the point in pretending that Islam is just another religion?

I readily concede that the Feds have no business in the health insurance business but considering nearly 50 million Americans are already covered by Medicaid and Medicare, the Feds are already in the business ... and getting their azz handed to them. Obamacare is an attempt to move more folks to private insurers. And ask anyone involved in underwriting. Insurance is already one of the most regulated industries although 90% of the regs are state imposed
Bullshit.

ObamaKKKare is designed to fail, ending in government takeover of medicine.

There's no way to replace the entire USPS without changing/eliminating some important laws and regulations. I don't think congress will get on board with doing that anytime soon.
Except for their huge fiscal losses, I'd actually say that the Postal Service is one of the more successful examples of government (along with the REA). Privatizing it would probably be a boon at this point though.....

You can leave out medicare, at least it's partly funded by life long contributions from those who worked for many years usually.
Not really true, because Medicare is just another tax and the money collected is spent each year. There is no guarantee that Medicare will be available in the future. In fact, Medicare is likely to be terminated and folded into ObamaKKKare.

The Cruz Campaign Against ObamaCare

The freshman Texas Senator volunteers House Republicans for duty on his implausible defunding gambit.

So House Republicans have passed and sent to the Senate a budget that includes no funding for the Affordable Care Act, setting up a political showdown that could result in a government shutdown. We wish the GOP luck, since we support the policy if not the strategy. But however this charge into the fixed bayonets turns out, we hope the folks who planned it will take responsibility for what happens now.

That starts with Senators Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas), who joined with a handful of conservative groups to force Speaker John Boehner's hand.

....When Mr. Cruz demands that House Republicans "hold firm," he means they should keep trying to defund ObamaCare even if it results in a shutdown that President Obama will blame on Republicans. It's nice of him to volunteer House Republicans for duty. The supposedly intrepid General Cruz can view the battle from the comfort of HQ while the enlisted troops take any casualties.

The Lee-Cruz strategy, to the extent it's about more than fund-raising lists or getting face time on cable TV, seems to be that if the House holds "firm" amid a shutdown, then the public will eventually blame Mr. Obama and the Democrats, who will then fold and defund ObamaCare. Or, short of that, Democrats might agree to delay the health-care law for another year past its launch date on October 1.

Miracles happen, but it would rank as one for the ages if Mr. Obama agreed to defund his signature Presidential achievement. A year's delay would also be a victory, but Mr. Obama knows that punting the law past the 2014 election is risky if Republicans regain a Senate majority.

If Republicans are looking for a more plausible strategy, one idea would be to seek a year delay in the individual mandate to buy health insurance. Mr. Obama has already delayed for a year the business mandate to provide insurance for workers, and it is hard to defend helping business but not people.

Another idea would be to join Senator David Vitter's effort to make Members of Congress and staff live under the same rules as ObamaCare. Democrats would hate defending their special carve-out. Both of these might seem more politically reasonable to independent voters than defunding a program that is already the law.

These columns opposed ObamaCare before it was known by that name, and we may have even been the first to call it by that name. We also don't need any lectures about principle from the Heritage Foundation that promoted RomneyCare and the individual mandate that is part of ObamaCare. Or from cable TV pundits who sold Republicans on Mitt Romney despite RomneyCare.

The question is how to oppose ObamaCare when Republicans control only one house of Congress. Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn points out that the defund and shutdown strategy is giving Mr. Reid an excuse to bust the spending caps and shift public attention away from ObamaCare's flaws. The only real way to repeal the law is to win elections. Our strategy would be to conduct an island-hopping campaign that attacks the law's vulnerable parts to help win those elections rather than invade the Japanese mainland.

But we've lost this debate, and Generals Cruz and Lee are in charge. If they do succeed and defund ObamaCare, we'll gladly give them due credit. But if things don't go well, let's not hear any excuses about "the surrender caucus" or claims that it would all have worked out if only everyone were as brave and principled as the generals up at HQ.

You do know the post office just asked Congress for an emergency rate increase? When the cost gets high enough that private enterprise can do it cheaper it will happen. Getting rid of home delivery for non express mail would be a start. Group boxes, as Galt suggested, should be done first.

One could argue that food stamps and school breakfast/lunch programs are the reason that minority children are so obese.
