CNP, I agree with your statement about guns. However, that kind of puts you at odds with libertarians like Ron Paul, as well as gun rights organizations, who all tend to be against any kind of gun control. How do you reconcile that? Just curious.

I've been reading all over the net about Alex Jones' meltdown on Piers Morgan's show. (I would never actually watch that show or that channel.) I've always wondered why Ron Paul associates himself with that guy. He really should have distanced himself from some of the kooks who supported him.

Rush Limbaugh is a very peculiar fellow. I used to listen to his show back when I was younger and more impressionable. Anyway, it's funny how the guy talks philosophically about the importance of less government in our lives on fiscal issues yet doesn't hold that view when it comes to social issues like gay marriage or legalizing marijuana.

You have missed nothing by not watching that pompous prig Morgan, he so far has delayed one case against him for phone taping and I can't remember the other charge that he wormed his way out of in the UK. He is a liberal socialist to the core. The Brits that I know that come here don't want him back in the UK.

Poor Peyton Manning. That's the eighth time he's gone one-and-done in the playoffs in twelve postseasons. I wonder what LocalBoy from Indiana thinks about that.

Denver just made to many stupid mistakes and got caught doing them.

S F looked much better than they have looked in the past. But both were enjoyable games with lots of action.

I don't care for most of Rush radical right Shock-jock propagandas views as dividing Americans and world into groups.
These warring freaks of nature the paidup shock jocks like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, and the dozens of other act to debase discourse, incite prejudice, sow many ignorance, exculpate criminality, incite rancor, ruin other reputations, and stoke the right-wing base-to wars at home and worlwide We, if with a brain may revile as obnoxious demagogues, as msot of populace are blind to what they are doing

I presume .... probably mistakenly ... that you got my point
before you posted back, but let ask this:

Which is worse, IO, a "lobby" consisting of millions of
Americans who contribute together for the defense of a
Constitutional amendment ..... a perfectly legal endeavor
....

or a President who believes he can, by Executive Order,
circumvent the legislative process and essentially ignore
the existence of the Legislative Branch and act like an
imperialist?

Personally, I prefer to first to the latter. I believe you
prefer the latter if he serves your ideology, but oppose him
when he does not. Am I wrong? If not, explain why.

I almost spit my coffee out this morning. Turns out republicans now want to change the electoral college and the way people vote. I guess since they got beat at their own game they want to change the rules.(how convenient) It doesn't matter to me because I always thought the electoral college was flawed anyway. One person, One vote.(aka popular vote) I say.

(Fox News) From Wisconsin to Pennsylvania, Republicans who control legislatures in states that supported President Barack Obama are considering changing laws that give the winner of a state's popular vote all of its Electoral College votes, too. They instead want Electoral College votes to be divided proportionally, a move that could transform the way the country elects its president." hahahah if you can't win fairly, just fix the game. lol

In other ironic news..(CNN)-- At least five people -- three in North Carolina, one in Indiana and one in Ohio -- were injured after weapons went off at gun shows Saturday, officials said, at a time when there's been renewed discussion about private gun sales at such shows.: GOOD GRIEF..HOW EMBARRASING. LMAO

Right now, several states have formed a compact in which they will award all of their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. The compact will take effect once the number of states in the compact make up a majority of the electoral college votes. That's how the popular vote will eventually decide the presidency and vice presidency without any change to the Constitution.

Gosh, another 15 year old boy blows away his family in NM. If someone in that family circle say that they didn't see anything like that comimg because he was such a good boy, they should be stripped naked and tared and feathered. Things like that just don't happen over night, that kid was ate up from the getgo and no one wanted to deal with it. Or they wanted to hide it. The teaching of that phony idea that everyone is special, there are no losers, your somebody, and there are only winners in America, is pure bullshit. America needs a real reality check, because there are more losers than winners always has been and always will be. Until you all start teaching and demanding responsability from children, and a hell of a lot for adults also, things like that will never end. And tell dr phil and others just like him, to sick up his ***

DAMN GOOD POST!

I'm so tired of hearing there are no losers only winners. If there is a winner there has to be a loser. Liberal logic defies any common sense. Contrary to popular belief we are not all equal. There are rich, there are poor, there are smart, there are dumb, etc etc. Liberals love to see the world through rose colered glasses.

btw Did anyone notice that he mentioned all minority groups during the innaguration? I also noticed the mlk type delivery. sigh
