Yes, that is exactly how it works, especially when it is an overwhelming majority, and especially when ignorant dumphuqs like yourself don't know dicque about the US constitution.
You're dribbling frustration from your lips again liar...the rights of the few are protected from the actions and desires of the majority...that's exactly how the laws of DC and Chicago where found "unconstitutional".

Go ahead...stomp your feet in frustration...but it won't change the facts deary...too bad for you.

Just let it go. You need to pity the leftists. They live in fear: fear of guns, fear of corporations, fear of not being able to make a decision on anything. Fear of Evil Rich People, fear of not being able to make enough money to pay their bills, fear that the gubbermint might withhold their checks. Fear of competition. Fear of never being as capable of standing on their own two feet.

They envy people with drive and ambition, people with money, but they don't have the brains or work ethic to succeed themselves. So they elect people that will punish achievers and tell the leftist losers that their lack of achievement isn't their fault, it's because The Man is keeping them down.

It's pathetic, really. I don't know how they live with themselves.

That was before the last 2 presidential elections, doofus. Things were terrifying back then and since nothing was ever what we were told it was, anything could and did happen.
At least now, just how dirty the majority of the big corporations, etc.(largest profits in history!!!-how could that be with the poorer getting poorer?)is coming out and regulations and watchdogs are coming in. There will be no more fear of the "Evil Rich People" because those people will no longer be able to lie, cheat and steal from everyone else.
Funny thing about that! it all seems to continuously come back to those spinning, lying, cheating, stealing, losing repugnantcans. What goes around always comes around and they are getting theirs now and will be for decades to come.
Get a grip, genius; the times, they are a-changin'! And not in a direction the "Evil Rich" is survivng. They are already falling like thieves.

Just curious-- is a "corporation" of three people who incorporated as an LLC running a cab company in Des Moines evil? How about "corporation" of 60 people running a bakery in Albany? When does a corporation become evil? When they reach 200 employees?

Or is it just corporations that do evil stuff that we need to worry about? How about General Electric, whose CEO sat on Lord Obama's Jobs Council and didn't pay taxes AT ALL? Or should we leave it up to a special committee to decide which corporations are worthy and which aren't? We could call the committee "the Party", and it would be run by "party bosses". What do you think?

Also-- when you and leftist buddies get finished beating the Evil Rich into submission, what are you going to do for money? The Evil Rich guys are the ones that started businesses, took risks, worked their butts off while you and your buddies sat around and whined about how unfair the world is. I never worked at a company started by a slacker leftist. They almost always were ardent conservatives.

You really should get over your envy problem. Or get off your butt.

No it did not and the fact that a citizen had a concealed weapon at the Gifford shooting and didn't use it is irrelevant. There are other instances where armed citizens have prevented or stopped potential mass shootings.
Sure didn't help or mitigate the situation like so many gun slingers have been claiming.

And there was only one known armed individual there. 40% of Arizonians have weapons.

What a sparse populace when an opportunity to show what they mean presents itself.

The last I heard, the person with a concealed carry gun was not attacked. Therefore the gun owner had no reason or requirement to pull his gun. However it does prove that liberals lie when they claim gun owners just pull their gun for any reason and innocent bystanders would have been killed. The SCOTUS has ruled police have no obligation for your personal protection so why should a private citizen?

News flash: when you lefties are done punishing the achievers in this country, you will still be an underachieving wimp. Only thing different is you won't have anybody to blame.

So answer the question: what criteria do you favor for deciding when a corporation is "evil"? Or should ALL corporations, even ones with three employees, be destroyed because they have "Inc." after their name?

No worker ever decided to move the over 30,000 American factories that have closed to China. It was the millionaire and billionaire CEOs that made that call. Ever since Reagan came up with the Piss Down Economics the CEO average pay has gone from 23 times that of the worker to almost 400 times more today.
Of the over 21 million Corporations in the US only 6 million of them have any employees. Most are just setup as a tax haven. Of all the small businesses in the US only 11% of the owners make over $250K per year. It is the rich bankers, Wall St. hedge fund gamblers, and the top CEOs that destroyed America.

Yes it did...he didn't get shot did he..?

"What a sparse populace when an opportunity to show what they mean presents itself."

Maybe that has more to do with who was there and those that own guns. You think more gun owners would be there if they could see the future like you do...?...is that a crystal ball you use or a Ouija Board...?

Of course we should not blame the unions that would rather see a company close a plant rather then renegotiate a contract paying workers $ 35.00 an hour in wage and benefits when in another country they are getting labor at 20 percent of that.

I love it when the "frustrated control freaks" show their real colors.
"We just have to push the gun-nuts out of the way."
I'm curious now...and just how would you "push the gun-nuts out of the way"...? What will you even do when they "push" back...?
Call out the National Guard and shoot your punk asses down in the streets.

Awe...isn't that sweet...the "frustrated control freak" has no way to backup his claim or his own desires. Must really suck to be you.

Of course if something like that where to happen, then even more "assault weapons" would be in the hands of civilians.

Sucks to defend unrestricted access to guns and mass-murders of civilians, including schoolkids. Which is what YOU'RE doing, punk.
