I haven't told any bald faced lies, so it's impossible for me to get caught doing it.

And I don't accuse anybody else of lies if they've made a mistake.

You live in some sort of fantasy world where you believe your wishes are reality and nobody else can see through your bullshit.

Ted Nugent is right concerning the misuse of firearms. He said;

"The only place that gun misuse comes from is from homes where there is drug abuse, alcohol abuse, or poor parenting. Period!."
Which one applies to Phil Rank?

I've lost track of how many times rightwingers have made gay slurs directed at me whenever they're losing the debate. That's a statement of fact.
It's seriously like an obsession with you guys. That's an opinion.
Clear?
Not surprised you lost track of that...it's the same for your lies.

If you weren't stuck in the mud of just one thread...opinion or not, you would see how wrong you are...and of course...YOU are wrong..again.

But as You say...unless you see it yourself...then it isn't so.

Nice circular argument.
I guess that's what you have to use when that's all you've got, huh?
LOL!
Well, except for the "facts" that proved you lied...tap dance some more.

So tell me...do you deny only providing one definition for the word "lie" when in fact it has multiple definitions...and those other definitions met the proof that you lied...?

Come on...I know you can do it...deny...deny...deny...tap dance little puppet.

Where does it say that he ever attended a "firearm rally"...?...or are you just spouting BS because it sounds good...?

I read about his criminal behavior but not attending a firearm rally.

Denying societal influences on crime misses the full picture. It's comforting to believe that every bad thing that happens to people - from poverty to crime - is entirely the result of rational, individual choices because then you can believe it would never happen to you. But the world simply doesn't work that way.
Never said the choices were made rationally. Yet, people still make choices. And those choices lead to consequences. Social influence still requires making a choice.

Personal responsibility is something every person has regardless of socio economic status, race, creed, religion or any other factor, with the exception of certain mentally ill persons. And those persons should be cared for where they cannot harm others.

I do not believe in the excuses of poverty or other factors determining ones actions. Too many good people have come from dire places and have success.

I asked this question:

You answered:

So that was one.
Then FP said there were others:
<quoted text>
So I said I don't remember any racist attacks Mayor Nagin made against Bush. You said you weren't surprised by that, implying he made racist attacks against Bush but I ignored them.
But that's not true, is it? You just admitted he didn't make any racist attacks against Bush.
Now that we're all up to speed, I wait to see if FP knows of any since you admit you do not.
Nagin blamed Bush being a racist about the Katrina response. When in fact Bush offered the Gov assistance in advance of landfall and was turned down. I don't remember every word spoken, just the implications. Katrina was a failure at several layers, local to federal imho.

The chocolate city statement was referencing only blacks should populate NO.

Nope, one of you gun grabbers stated that all of the guns in America were owned by only 35% of the population. So I arrived at that number by finding that the current population is 313.9 Million (X .35)= 109.8 Million. So, the NRA had NOTHING to do with it and the only "spoon feeding" has been done by socialist maggot gun grabbers. The numbers are part of YOUR propaganda. You're still a seriously prejudiced and ignorant fool.

There are too many people who are working hard and playing by the rules and are still stuck in poverty to justify the claim that individual choice is the sole determining factor. Society is structured in a way that keeps people poor regardless of their personal choices. Not saying personal choice isn't a factor, just not the only factor or even the primary factor.

I don't believe Nagin every accused Bush of being racist. Like many people, Nagin believed that race played a part in the inadequate response to Katrina victims, but he didn't specifically name Bush.

What assistance did Bush offer in advance of landfall? He was on vacation at the time.

Nagin said that NO was historically a chocolate city and would be again. He never said only blacks "should" populate NO. He was responding to concerns that blacks weren't going to be able to return while white people were. It wasn't a racist comment.

And you don't find Nagins' comment racist???? I thought you were all about confronting racism. So the logical conclusion here is that, like so many other racist socialists, you think that Caucasians are the ONLY ones who can be guilty of racism. Which, of course, makes you a flaming RACIST.

And yet you don't supply any credible links to support your spewing of "your 109 million number is about 50 million to high".
Why is that?

I've already explained this. If you'd read, you wouldn't have to say stupid stuff like this.

And for the record, many US cities that are predominantly African American in population (after white flight to the suburbs) have been called Chocolate City.

As far as I know, Washington DC was the first, since at least the early 70s. There was even a funk album called "Chocolate City" that was a tribute to DC. But Atlanta, Chicago, Memphis, Detroit and New Orleans have also been called that.

The term is used affectionately by African Americans and there's nothing racist about it.

The share of American households with guns has declined over the past four decades, a national survey shows, with some of the most surprising drops in the South and the Western mountain states, where guns are deeply embedded in the culture.

The gun ownership rate has fallen across a broad cross section of households since the early 1970s, according to data from the General Social Survey, a public opinion survey conducted every two years that asks a sample of American adults if they have guns at home, among other questions.

The rate has dropped in cities large and small, in suburbs and rural areas and in all regions of the country. It has fallen among households with children, and among those without. It has declined for households that say they are very happy, and for those that say they are not. It is down among churchgoers and those who never sit in pews.

The household gun ownership rate has fallen from an average of 50 percent in the 1970s to 49 percent in the 1980s, 43 percent in the 1990s and 35 percent in the 2000s, according to the survey data, analyzed by The New York Times.

In 2012, the share of American households with guns was 34 percent, according to survey results released on Thursday. Researchers said the difference compared with 2010, when the rate was 32 percent, was not statistically significant.

The findings contrast with the impression left by a flurry of news reports about people rushing to buy guns and clearing shop shelves of assault rifles after the massacre last year at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Luckily, we can ship them up to the welfare state of Alaska where they do little harm.
