He even beat Romney up for saying that Detroit needs to fail. I thought the bailouts saved Detroit from extinction. I thought O'Bama is messiah? LOL

Nice to see you playing with such class still Francis...so let's see if I have this right...you are all for the enlightened Obumbles of our country pressing for bans on law-abiding citizens owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but not a word from you and in complete defeatocrat support of the Obumble administrations agreement to give 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders of Egypt to get on their "good" side...sorry ol pal but you and I might live in a country founded by geniuses but there is no doubt you are in full support of it being run by idiots as long as they are a part of the left...go figure, have some more koolaid please...
More Food For Thought for you...
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally ...you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
If you have to get your parentsí permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
Stand-by for sporko insults. He can't handle logic.
Great post, BTW

Why...?...Zimmerman was justified as found in a court of law.

But I guess YOU don't like having to follow the rule of law...prime example of a "frustrated control freak".

Actually states with less gun control have less violent crime, a subset of crime, gun crime, is not the issue, it's total violent crime that is the problem.

Chicago, Illinois has proven that too with years of gun control that has failed law abiding citizens.

Yuppers, "keep&bear" means own and CARRY. I have stopped the theft of my truck and once defended my life against three thugs with a handgun I was carrying.
