Some of my best mates are blacks and I happen to hate discriminations. I lived in East and West LA, seen a lot. One of my fav bands is NWA google that and tell me I dont know crap.
So you are telling me that hatred has to go on forever, in order to keep things as they have been established under "white supremacy" which I personally despise as Martin Luther King is one of my heroes.
Lets get armed to the teeth then and wait, does it sound logical to you? When it stops? Until we all get armed? It will be the end for the human race. We are supposed to evolve not going backwards. Wild times belong to the past.
The old "some of my best friends are black" story. Sorry but they are not. If you are not black then you never will be. In a black mans eyes you may be a friend but not to the point of being included in his culture or who he is. Slave owners sometimes befriended some slaves even had children with them but make no mistake they were still slaves. You as a person may have a black friend but make no mistake, being white is still including you as the enemy and enslaver of an entire race. You may have a black friend but that in no way enlightens you to the culture or feelings enrooted towards whites in general. No one is immune from it. Some hate jews, even to the point of trying to wipe them out. Some hate Christians or other religions to the point of violence. Yes somewhere someone hates you and would like to kill you for just who you are and not for anything you've done. Dream of Eden but live in reality. As you walk down the street today remember you will pass at least one person who would kill you for their own reasons that you may not even understand. Even John Lennon learned this the hard way.

As long as man roams this planet, there will those who will want you you have, and will be willing to harm or even kill you in order to get it. Why??? Beacuse THAT is the nature of man. Yes, some of us HAVE evolved past that and do wish for peace, but as the saying goes, if you wish for peace......prepare for war. There is a saying from an old TV show: "Who knows what evil lies in the hearts of men?" The show was fiction, but that saying has been true since Cain slew Abel. We can all sit around holding hands and singing Kumbaya, but that doesn't mean a damn thing to those who would kill you for the paper in your wallet. Turn on the news........they are out there EVERY DAY.

I have asked this MANY times: Why would you rely on the kindness of strangers for the preotection and safety of your own family?

What say you?

Very good, your of course 1000% correct. Gifford should shut the hell up, just because she was shot doesn't make her an expert on guns. And that dip-shit husband of her's has less to say about anything.

You obviously are grossly unaware of history. As well as the nature of evil. The ones that are "armed" have always imposed their will on those that are not. The British empire was a prime example of that FACT. As well as one of the chief purveyors of slavery at one time. The British are responsible for more deaths than Maoist China, Nazi Germany, and Soviet Russia COMBINED. And now you cowardly freaks are paying for the evils you have committed, or allowed to be perpetrated in your name.

Gun friendly Southern states have highest homicide rates in 2012

The recently released FBI's crime statistics for 2012, once again show the American South dominating the list of states with the highest per capita homicide rates. Louisiana led the nation with a murder rate of 10.8 homicides per 100,000 population. Louisiana's Southern neighbor, Mississippi was second with a homicide rate of 7.4 per 100,000. Alabama (7.1), Michigan (7.0) and South Carolina (6.9) rounded out the top five most murderous U.S. states in 2012. Missouri (6.5), Tennessee (6.0), Georgia and Arkansas also ranked in the top ten states, with Georgia and Arkansas tying for 10th at 5.9 murders per 100,000.
And yet your skewed "quote" doesn't tell the REAL FACTS. Which is that the VAST MAJORITY of all murders and other crimes. Are committed in demonrat controlled cities by demonrat perpetrators. Care to explain why the 'fbi' failed to note THAT FACT?

History doesn't matter. Things must change for the times. You Americans make way too much fuss about rights. Civilized people can live without rights.

How about you tell that to a survivor of the Nazi camps? How would you feel about your right of free speech being regulated? Maybe you should get a permit from a government agency before you post on message boards. Would it be ok with you if the cops searched you and your car and home on nothing more then a whim? Maybe just because you 'look like a pothead' because your hair is a little too long for their liking? Want to go to court without any chance of having a lawyer represnt you? Do you think you should be forced to worship only from a governmentally approved list, or perhaps not allowed to follow any religion at all? Would you like you morning news to be edited and regulated and featuring only 'approved' articles? Maybe you would feel better working in a forced labor camp 15 hours a day? How many of those rights are YOU personally prepared to give up? And even if you say that you would be fine with surrendering all of them, what gives you the right to decide what's best for the
rest of us? Yes...we Yanks do make a big deal of our rights...for damn good reasons!

First off, I didnt say that I personally subscribe to any religious philosophy. What I believe in, or not is irrelavent. What is relavent is that people believe many different things, not just here, but all over the world, Judism, Muslim, Catholic, Budist, Hinduism, Wiccan, and many more...and its not anyones right to tell any one else what they can (or can not) believe.
I enumerated several rights that are the foundation of living a free life in a fairly civilized society. You cant even make a comment without adding in your personal attacks, insults, and name-calling. You seek to annoy people at every opportunity and as much negative attention as possible. A discussion, debate, or argument is much more than calling the opposition a 'spooge sponge' or a 'dumb fuck' and declaring yourself the victor. Just admit that you really have no viewpoint other than to see how many people you can frustrate, pester, and annoy. You add NOTHING. You are NOTHING.

WRONG, cowardly and treasonous spambot. Our rights were specifically SET BEYOND THE REACH of our hired servants in government. We The People RESERVED them to ourselves, and WITHHELD them from government interference.

The 'servants' do NOT tell their MASTERS what, when, or how their rights may be exercised. They are only delegated the authority to punish for ABUSE or MISUSE of a Constitutionally SECURED right. Otherwise, WHY EVEN RESERVE THE RIGHT TO BEGIN WITH, you brainless drone?
