Why do we have the same futile argument every time there is a mass killing? Advocates of gun control try to open a discussion about whether more reasonable weapons statutes might reduce the number of violent ... via Truthdig

You got that almost correctly.

Here is the correct statement:
"The first sign of a FOOL is someone who says HE'S always right, and the 'sure' sign of a TOOL is the person who believes such.

Remember: The fool proposes (a thing), whilst the tool supposes (it's true).

Yeah hrmmmph! that is what they said about a lone American voice shouting that the yanks had no proof of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that Husien had nothing to do with 911, and you dicks shouted him down and called him a traitor,he was proved right though wasn't he and you knobs just look stupid....Soooooo, just because everyone believes it to be right does not necessarily mean that it is right eh! knucklehead. I am always right you are just too stupid to know it till it stares you in the face.....
What does any of that have to do with him attacking a neighbor country and the UN having to defend those neighbors? What does any of your rant have to do with Saddam violating the treaty which included UN inspections? Violate treaty = resumed war. What does any of that have to do with him rearming (in violation of treaty)? Violate treaty = resume war. The UN decided to resume the war (after repeated treaty violations), the U.S. was only ONE voice in the decision to resume the war. By the way it IS proven that he murdered his own people by the thousands.

Unless of course, unless you are someone who "Is" always right, and then your saying is just mindless twaddle, and you are the fool!

It has to do with the fact that you (Americans) went to war with Iraq based on lies, that Husien was involved in 911 and that he had WMDs not for any other reason, and yet you have conveniently forgotten that simple fact, why? because rather than face the truth that your government lied you and all that damage and loss of lives was preventable, you cover those lies, with more lies..It seems the American government and it's people have learnt nothing here so it can and will be repeated in any country of their choosing. If, America went to war with every country that committed genocide, or refused to trade with any country that brutalised or oppressed it's people, you would be broke, the point is they don't and didn't so why not? and why Irag? they are the questions a person looking for answers would be asking themselves, not making excuses to justify an unjustifiable war based on lies.

Ahomana: Your whole worth as a country is based on capitalism, the ability to chase the American dream, and now you complain because that capitalistic ideal controls everything?...boo hoo...Your whole system is just as bad as any of those governments you oppose because the ugly side of letting you do as you please(the republic) is that there is total chaos where monopolies thrive, a handful own much and decide the fate of many and your ignorant masses are just as controlled as if they lived in Saudi Arabia...you just don't see it, you crazy nut.

You are the liar. I just pointed out the lies. Saddam started the first war FACT. Saddam violated several terms of the treaty that stopped the first war FACT. The UN, not the U.S. made the decision to resume the war FACT. These are the facts, your little rant is just a rant and nothing else. You are still a pitiful failure and a proven liar.

Not at all I am the one that is showing you that you can have it both ways if you have the ability to see reason and show restraint ....If I was telling you how to live I would be encouraging the government to give you gun owning, NRA supporting nutters Labotomies instead of a background check.:D

Fair enough, but saddam was a bloody idiot for not allowing the weapons inspectors to go about their work, had he done so it might have averted the war & saved his life!

If you are trying to sell your way of life as being better then why do you use lies to do it? If your side of the debate has such a firm historical record then why do you need lies? Almost ever point made to you is either ignored, replied to with a degrading sexual remark or just an out right proven lie. Most on here consider you a raving lunatic (even the liberal anti-gun crowd). It's bad when even the crazies consider you crazy.

Almost ever point made to you is either ignored, replied to with a degrading sexual remark or just an out right proven lie.
A: I never ignore your point I just don't respond to a point if it is idiotic, which in most cases it is ....it is illogical to believe you need assault weapons, yet I find those who fear the loss of all their guns irrational enough to support any lengths to keep them, that is just insane. And note I have never ever made a degrading sexual remark to someone unless they have done so first, ever!

American Republicanism is where a small percentage of rich non-taxpayers try to decide how the rest of the country should live..

You have been taken over by your own corporate interests which you have supported and enabled.

Then prove crime will go down if guns are eliminated. As far as remarks you are full of crap. Go back and read your own posts, they are full of sexual remarks. You don't respond because you CAN'T. You post fast just not with any facts or relevance.
