Btw, to answer your question he has been negotiating behind the scenes with the UN to circumvent our Second Amendment.

nothing so far, but Clinton and the people from the New Left from the 60's generation are pushing and still dont like the Verdict in the SCOTUS case of Mcdonald vs Chicago but Romney would be benefical to the New left because he would go along with something like he did in Massachusetts by placing a tax on gun owners but calling it a fee instead.

Agreed, but i think , "NOTHING SO FAR" should be a headline, after all the scary rhetoric delivered by the Far Right and the talking heads at FOX.....How about the honorable act of apologizing, as freely as they attacked?

Is there a printed response sheet that all liberals use?
I realize you liberals just ignore valid statements you can't rebut and sling mud or name call when you're stumped. But the FOX NEWS comments are being used as often as the race card.
I don't even watch FOX NEWS. I think for myself. If you can pull the liberal propaganda electrodes from your temples, you should try it some time.

You know the ironic thing about this UN treaty concerning gun control is that when I first heard about it and checked it out on snopes, they said it was false.

It is pathetic that we have to view sites like SNOPES as "less unreliable" than MediaMatters or FactCheck.

I wish sites like that had little metrics that would allow the user to see how often the information posted on that particular site has been found wrong or misleading.

THEN we would have decent sources and not the additional propaganda dispensers we have to deal with now.

Oh, and just because it is fun, I think on a monthly basis, the percentage of posts that are found to be erroneous is the percentage of their ad income they should have to surrender.

Man I like the way you think!

We need to put that together and get it on the ballot in November!

I already think that we should reduce the salaries of the entire Executive branch, Congress and all bureaucrats to a maximum of $50k with INCENTIVES should they reach certain productivity metrics.

No more rewarding failure!

If only we could get corporate boards of directors to follow suit!

Can we add that idea as well?

Damn skippy!
Let's do away with the lifetime salary/pension too.
Limit bills to one subject/topic. No riders or addendums.
Require laws to apply to congress exactly as they do citizens.
I've got a list of about 15 changes that would have America back on to within 4 years.

If you will run, I would happily be your VP!

But don't make me Secretary of State, unless I get a new chair.

Government needs to get out of the business of business and get back to its Constitutional mandates.

Know what I mean?

Absolutely.
I wouldn't mind running for a lower level government position. That's where we need to start. Get some third party electors appointed. Get third party candidates invited to presidential debates.

I would be assassinated within a year as president. I try to be patient and fair, but at the end of the day, I'm too much of a hard ass. Lol.

Sports fans and O'bot's, this is nothing but a contrived distraction, obfuscation and unproved innuendo to take the heat off of this incompetent power grabbing Marxist ersatz president, with zero accplishments to his (nom de guerre) name.
Yes, power grabbing by executive order, and dismantling our Constitutional Republic by fiat -- only possible through a dumbed down liberal PubEd indoctrination. This was not possible 20+ years ago when students had a modicum of understanding of school taught civics and Constitutional history.
On March 16, the White House released an executive order,“National Defense Resources Preparedness.” The document is stunning in its audacity and a flagrant violation of the Constitution. It states that, in case of a war or national emergency, the federal government has the authority to take over almost every aspect of American society. Food, livestock, farming equipment, manufacturing, industry, energy, transportation, hospitals, health care facilities, water resources, defense and construction - all of it could fall under the full control of Mr. Obama. The order empowers the president to dispense these vast resources as he sees fit during a national crisis.
In short, the order gives Mr. Obama the ability to impose martial law. He now possesses the potential powers of a dictator. The order is a direct assault on individual liberties, private property rights and the rule of law. It is blatantly unconstitutional. The executive branch is arrogating responsibilities precluded by the Constitution without even asking the permission of Congress. The order gives Mr. Obama a blank check to erect a centralized authoritarian state. This is a law one would expect to find in Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela or Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
"Mein Fuhrer Spricht!" Yes, Deja Vu once again.....

You should bother to read the Exec. Orders sometime. They do no such BS. The only EXEC. Orders Pres. Obama has made was to PROTECT the public from the real criminals in this country who have been murdering US for over 30yrs.

I stand by my post.
Your arguments are nonsense. You are ridiculous.

You cannot even make your own points but, instead, resort to links.

You attack children. Just admit it. You believe that children should be punished for things adults do. That is simply mean. You are simply a mean-spirited person who spits on those who cannot fight back.

Are you Ann Romney?
