Perhaps you can disect this sentence and tell us what it means:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
I think you should first know what the definition of "is" is. Anyone who can't even difine the word "is" cannot possibly have an understanding of the English language sufficient to understand what the Second Amendment means.
I am convinced there will come a day soon when we will have to educate you on that.
Actually, it was "Let's shoot four more and take the rest of the week off" as aired.

Who said this?

Here's a trivia question for you. Who said:
"Let's shoot four more and take the whole week off?"
I just happened to be living in that region of the country when it happened and heard it live.
Care to make a guess?
After you wrestle with that, let's get back to the questions you've been running away from like a scalded dog:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
(just write a simple location to answer this question)
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(just write a source of money to answer this question)
Then, give us the answer to the trivia question.
Oh, yeah. I almost forgot to mention it. You know you'll be coming to see us. We know you'll be coming to see us. See you then.
I bet you say this to yourself over and over in the mirror...

Financing the government is never any president's invention. If you read the Constitution, you will see it is necessarily the responsibility of Congress. Specifically, the House is responsible for generating all bills related to revenue, which includes borrowing.
If either you or Obama had ever read the Constitution at least once in your lives both of you would know that.
Since you mentioned it, please tell us what happened to the deficit and debt since the Demcorats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, when they were given a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars and a total debt of 8.5 trillion dollars (having increased from 5 trillion dollars in January, 2001).
What happened to that deficit since the Democrats took control of it?
What happened to that debt since the Democrats took control of it?
there are multiple reasons for the massive national debt
Having to pay to carry existing debt is one.
Clinton balanced the budget and left a surplus....
Bush comes in and one massive tax cut and two wars later...
the economy goes in the toilet, still on Bush's watch..
Finally Obama adds to the debt because Bush's mess isn't going to clean it's self up...for free
If you want to say Obama has mis handled the clean up on Bush's mess....OK
If you want to say Obama caused the mess...even you must know thats laughable

Bullshit.
Clinton didn't balance any goddam budget. If you recall, he had to be dragged kicking and screaming to it. He got revenge, though, when he used the White House to coerce Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy, almost exactly like what was predicted in a 1999 New York Times article published right after he signed away the Glass Steagall Act.
If you think you're talking to people who only know what they've been indoctrinated with by the Democrats, you're working form a point of ignorance.
I'll catch you up on events.
The Democrats accepted no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program in exchange for supporting the war in Iraq. Here's a link so you can read the actual quotes of the Democrats in negotiations with the Republicans in 2003:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...

Take note that this was the same year the Democrats supported the war in Iraq.

When the Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, the deficit given to them was 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars. The total public debt was 8.5 trillion dollars (increased from 5 trillion dollars in 2001). The Republicans added 3.5 trillion dollars to the debt between 2001 and the day the Democrats took full control of the purse strings of government.

Kindly tell us what the Democrats have done to the deficit and debt since.

And, Obama doesn't have anything to do with government. He's doing what he's always done, ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train. He doesn't have a clue what is happening in government. His only function is to be a cardboard cutout of a commercial to make it appear as if someone's actually president, and read the script from the teleprompter as he's ordered to do so by the people who make it possible for him to ride in the gold seatr on the government gravy train.... just like he didn't have a goddam clue the operation to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden was even happening and thought he'd be playing golf all goddam day that day.

If you want to engage in serious discussion about what is happening in government, please don't say something ludicrous like "Obama did this..." or "Obama did that...". Obama doesn't have a goddam thing to do with what happens in government.

It is a shame today remembering a great man that tried to lead and do well for his people would be degraded by another black man that has created more racism and divide than any man in recent history other than the liberal politicians of the south. Martin Luther Kings great dream speech said he looked for the day when people were judged by their character instead of the color of their skin. Barry Obama has gone out of his way to keep the divide, create high unemployment for his people and to ignore Reverend King’s words. He trashes this day by creating more debt and hate as he has to be sworn in again for the second time in as many days. Obama in his narcissistic way considers today a coronation more than an inauguration. Sorry Mr. King, you speech should have talked about free phones and candy too.

Your comments are ridiculous! Why do you try so hard to convince yourself that the current president is responsible for the state of this country? Do you seriously believe that John McCain, Sarah Palin or God forbid ..Mitt Romney could come even close to doing the job Obama is doing? I really pray for people like you. That y'all WAKE UP! Listen, the money is there. When the rich and I'm not talking about Donald Trumps' sorry ass...he's not rich at all compared to the Thirteen Families that control the world banking systems and YOU are probably not as rich as I am yet to talk this foolishness. Stop trying to sound like you're clued in. The very words you speak here clearly shows how ignorant you are. Come on! Do your homework before proudly posting your ignorance. You are only adding to the confusion of too many white folk in this country. As long as you fools play this childish game, the more you road blocks you put up, that we all have to waste precious time and energy in our efforts to restructure this unjust system for the benefit of ALL THE PEOPLE!

Some of those polled disapproved of him because he did not pull all troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Some of those polled disapproved of him because him did not give them houses and cars.
Some of those polled disapproved of him because Obamacare didn’t go far enough.
Some of those polled disapproved of him because of Obamacare.
Some of those polled disapproved of him because he raised taxes on them.
Some of those polled disapproved of him because he did raise taxes higher on others.
Most of these polls are freakin pointless. Just look at Congress, does not matter if it is Dem or Rep controlled the approval rating is below 20%. Yet 90-95% are voted to go back.

FOX NEWS TO SHUT DOWN FOR ROUTINE MAINTENANCE MONDAY MORNING AT 11:30

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Fox News Channel announced today that it would shut down for what it called “routine maintenance” Monday morning at 11:30 E.T.

Fox News president Roger Ailes explained the timing of the shutdown, which will be the first in the history of the network:“We wanted to pick a time when we were positive nothing would be happening that our viewers would want to see.”

Mr. Ailes said that Fox had considered shutting down only once before, exactly four years earlier on January 20, 2009, and later regretted the decision to continue broadcasting that day:“It turned out that no Fox viewers wanted to watch TV that day. And I mean none.”

According to Mr. Ailes, for the twelve hours Fox News is off the air on Monday the network will broadcast a continuous photomontage of white people.

“Regular viewers of Fox probably won’t notice anything unusual,” he said.

After the routine maintenance is completed, Mr. Ailes said, Fox News will return to the air Tuesday morning with its regular broadcast schedule:“For Fox viewers, it will be like Monday never happened.”
Obama's inauguration is NO news.

Benghazi, Fast and Furious ARE news the liberal media refuses to cover. No news, that is why Obama abused Executice Power because there is nothing to see there, right,

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocriticals easy to fool!

Lot's of luck getting your fascist dictatorship installed. Looks like the Democrats' attempt to use a page out of Das Kapital got shoved up Obama's ass.
And, it looks like the Democrats' attempt to establish an alternate government here to be paid for by Obama minting his own trillion dollar coin and giving that to the Fed in return for real money to pay for the treasonous government the Democrats want to establish got shoved up Obama's ass.
And, it looks like the treaty Obama signed with China giving them eminent domain here in the United States is going to get shoved up Obama's ass.
(I did notice that the George Soros propaganda site, Snopes, denied this, but as usual for them, they didn't present any facts. You'd think that George Soros could come up with the text that defines the conditions Obama signed to dispute the claim. Looks like even George Soros can't defend Obama's position of giving eminent domain rights to China here. You do realize that the Chinese will break Obama's legs just like any other loan shark does if he doesn't pay them, don't you?)

So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(a source of money is required to answer this question)

Since the people won't let Obama give US territory belonging to "free states" to China to pay the debt, just what will Obama give to them?
Clinton gave the Trident D5 MIRV guidance system to China as repayment for them being the single largest contributor to his campaign. That is the guidance system North Korea is testing now.

There is no limit to what Obama will do to damage and destroy the United States.

You seem to have severe problems reading and comprehending the written English language. I have stated over and over that Obama doesn't have anything to do with this government. He's doing what he has done his entire life, ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train. His only function is that of a cardboard cutout commercial to make it appear as if someone's actually president, and read the prepared scripts from the teleprompter as he is ordered to do so.
You have to admit a couple of things, though. He rode that gravy train all the way into the White House. And, he is very gifted at pretending to believe what's written on the teleprompter in front of his face.
The truth is, Obama has as much to do with anything in our government as when he didn't even have a clue the operation to kill bin Laden was happening and thought he'd be playing golf all goddam day that day.

By the way, which of the fraudulent photos do you like best? Do you like the first photo with Obama photoshopped into the picture sitting to the right of the display coordinator as if he is studying the display like everyone else in the room?
Or, do you like the next photo the White House replaced the first photo with having Obama photoshopped to the right of the display coordinator and grinning at the camera like a high school prankster?
Or, do you like the last photo the White House says is real whith Obama photoshopped to the left of the display coordinator and Joe Biden magically appears in the photo?
Don't you like how Obama is able to change positions and expressions while every other person in the room has the identical position and expression in all the photos the White House released?

You do know the entire goddam world sees this clown act, right?
