Exactly what violent revolution was taking place in 2008 when Oblamer announced plans to assemble a national civilian security force?

You lack of validity to defuse Obama's own words and speeches is almost comical. You are really going down hill. Desperations does that......or is it guilt for what you have done to ruin America.

The chaos caused major traffic backups on several downtown streets until lines of police forced crowds to move.

Looters even raided a 7-Eleven on Broadway, taking advantage of the celebrations. In Fells Point, a mini-van picked the wrong time to try to drive through the crowds. It was hemmed in and surrounded…try explaining that damage to your insurance agent.

Blacks think they are intitled to rob and damage others property at will. Just one more reason we need to retain our 2nd amendments rights.

Now to make the same legislation apply to assault weapons such as the AR-15.

Will a pile of irrelevant, racist crap win the debate for you?

No. It won't. It only makes you look even more desperate and despicable.

I could argue we're still fighting a 'war on terror,' but you'd only have accepted that if Bush was President. Obviously this force never materialized. And I don't defend all of Obama's actions, of course. I'm not a kneejerker like you.

But what about forming civilian militias is unConstitution, you stinking commie?:)

WXYZ)- Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women's basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.
The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

One of the attackers was found dead in the median on Lafayette Boulevard, and the other was taken to a local hospital, according to police sources. We've learned that both of the men had attended the high school, and one had been recently expelled.

No pookie, but liberals are. Anyone afraid or against fighting for the constitution and the country shold not be trusted. Take Obama for example, he shoots like he throws. I think Palin should give the boy some lesons.

We need to increase the top marginal tax bracket to at least 50%, increase taxes on capital gains, and impose a transaction tax on trades made on the Wall St. Casino. Those would be a good start.

Wall St. nearly ruined the country. Place the blame where it belongs, loon.

And there you go again Professor Fartsack, you are incredibly dense and arrogant.....and not very bright. Your never ending cries of racism do NOT work on topix, numbnuts. This is NOT a leftist/communist venue. You need to find a smarter leftist than you (not difficult) and come up with some new talking points if you're going to post on here. Otherwise STFU and go preach to the choir at your next leftist circle jerk, NOBODY on here wants to hear your stupid BS.

Let's cut out all the waste, fraud and entitlements, then see what needs to be done as far as taxes. We are not under taxed, we are over spent. You do know how that works in your check book don't you.
