Drug-testing Congress
Although I am all for drug tests for welfare recipients, I can’t help but wonder what the outcome would be if our elected officials were given random drug tests.
Perhaps something could get done in the halls of Congress and our various statehouses if all of the druggies and alcoholics were ousted.

“This is a terrific time for both the religious and the non-religious, the believers and seekers alike, to find voices that resonate with their own experiences of mystery and doubt and a faith that really has to be wrestled with,” he adds.“There’s a longing for something more than what has been served up by traditional evangelicalism that is deeply felt all across the country by many believers, young and old.”

As More Kids Die, Handguns Still a Bigger Threat Than Assault Rifles
The weapons in all the kiddie carnage were handguns, which remain a far greater threat than assault rifles. That despite the notoriety assault rifles received after the movie theater shootings in Aurora, Colo., and the murder of 20 children at one time in Newtown, Conn.

There a infinitely more handguns than assault rifles in America, and as such, they would absolutely pose a greater risk to children AND adults. Nevertheless, Americans are FIRM on their Second Amendment right to bear arms, so expanding an weapons ban beyond those specifically designed to kill human beings in rapid succession is not going to fly in America. I am in agreement with that sentiment. We reserve the right.

I would also oppose government ever attempting to seize weapons already legally purchased and present in people's homes. But, I have no problem with banning further sales or in blocking the sale of high capacity magazines.

It's disingenuous to use the proposed ban on assault weapons in the way it's being used in this debate. It's fear mongering.

Unless you're a right wing extremist "fringer", I've had nothing bad to say about conservatives.

I haven't either.
What is a social conservative, NTR?
Isn't a social conservative a fiscal conservative as well?

I live by the rule that if you attack me, I will not be a quiet victim. If you espouse hate, I'll oppose you. If you call Democrats "libtards", I'll get in your face. There are plenty of moderate dems, and there are moderate pubs. Nobody acknowledges that in this forum.

It's our Congress that deserves every bit of the disdain it receives. They've sold us out.

City Guns and Country Guns: One of the Clearest Examples of the Political/Geographical Divide
People in the country grow up respecting guns, indispensable on most farms. In some families, hunting deer or doves or turkeys is as routine as going to the grocery, and serves the same purpose. And there are varmints: rats and groundhogs and foxes and, lately, coyotes that can do real damage to a farm. Most country people have guns. Most live long lives without ever aiming a gun at a human being, but defense is always in the back of their minds. People who live in remote places can never expect any sheriff’s deputy to get there in time to fend off an intruder.

No. They are not the same. Google it and read. That way you'll know first hand for yourself what the differences are with respect to social conservative and fiscal conservative. You can be both or you can be only a fiscal conservative.

Fear Mongering and Media Bias

Looking closely at the facts, it is evident not only that violence does not decrease with increased legislation, but that the opposite is true: the decrease of legally obtainable weapons leads to an increase in violence. The obvious conclusion is that in either case, people who use firearms for harm do not obtain them legally.

In Franklin County, a Global Arms Dealer Quietly Makes a Killing

Imported, foreign-made firearms are another matter. For decades, Century has exploited a loophole to get around a federal law banning the importation of military-style rifles, according to a February 2011 investigative report jointly produced by the Center for Public Integrity and PBS’s “Frontline.” It does so by importing “slimmed down,‘sporting’ versions of their foreign rifles” that can clear federal importation restrictions, then retrofitting them with U.S.-made parts, including bayonets and high-capacity clips.

The gov't is making the NRA and gun manufacturers rich with the fear mongering. I would not be surprised if gun control stalls or becomes watered down to nothing when all is said and done!!!!

anybody else care to chime in? seriously, that is...

Again, it has nothing to do with your ideology. Your sentence structure, style, and misuse of ALLCAPS and punctuation make it difficult to comprehend your ideas.

Dems and Their Gun Money

While gun-control advocates are slinging mud, suggesting that it’s immoral to support the NRA or have an expansive view of gun rights, it’s important to remember that many Democrats invest in the very industry they’re lambasting lock, stock, and barrel.

You never proved me a liar, higgans. In your sick mind, maybe. You're just here to argue and belittle people who disagree. I've told you, I'm not interested in conversing with you.

It is also the right of any poster to bring out anything to do with our president whether it be good or bad without any judgement of whether the particular link presented is far left or right or whether another deems the link as a propaganda site or not, as all talk no matter what it is, is essentially "propaganda" meaning "horray for our side" and all,(or at least most) stories contain fact as well as fiction. Even the most "official" ones.
We decide what to believe and I personally feel that our president has failed us based on all that I have read, Left or right.
But you are right......
When will congress see this.
They fail to see a failure.
