Obama made these comments with nearly four dozen victims of gun violence and their families in attendance, including former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly. In response, scores of lawmakers rose to their feet during a crescendo of applause.
"They deserve a vote. They deserve a vote. They deserve a vote," Obama said. "Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence, they deserve a simple vote."
Guess Obama included Kyle in the "countless other communities ripped open by gun violence" part of his speech. Probably where he has Chicago, too.
My question is, don't the law abiding citizens who have thwarted violent offenders by using their legally owned and registered guns also deserve a vote?
Damned good question, sir. Any of you obama humping liberals got an explanation?

Bush kept us safe from what? He allowed us to be attacked on 911 then used that as an excuse to invade and occupy Afghanistan and Iraq. His VP gave his own companies no bid contracts worth hundreds of billions after convincing congress that his lies about WMD's weren't lies but we know now that they were lies.
NO EFFING WAY IN HELL should we invade and occupy North Korea. That area belongs to China, South Korea and Japan. Let them deal with it. There is no reason for the US to get involved in ground wars period. Of course Obama knows that and he will do the right thing when it comes to foreign affairs. I'm sure of it.
Have 10 more points.. LOL..:-)

Our economy is fine. While our debt is high, the deficit (which is basically the difference between liabilities and revenues and a more accurate measure of fiscal stability than debt aloneósortía like one have a big debt, but itís offset by a large salary) has been reduced by a third from $1.4 trillion in 2009 (10.1% of GDP), to $1.03 trillion (6.2% GDP) thus far in 2013. Today there are 4.7 million more people working than in 2010, which has increased the tax revenue and thus contributed to the deficit reduction.
Further, as we did with WWII (a debt our nation never repaid) we can grow out of it. And thatís exactly what going on right now. Wonít happen overnight, itíll take decades, like it did to grow out of our WWII debt.
You fall for the classic mistake of comparing household debt to govít debt. Not the same. Govíts and corporations live on debt and have forever to make money and pay that debt off. Households donít.
So relax. Kick your shoes off and whip it. Whip it good.
Just a little overly optimistic aren't you? It's not like a liberal to be optimistic. Why, when Bush was President you said 4% unemployment was the depths of recession, now we have 7.9% and everything's coming up roses. Hey, get your Chinese calculator and see what happens to our debt once interest rates go up, let's say to 5%, still relatively low, check out the interest payments.

Yes, yes, you're repeated this lie many times on Topix. We're still spending money we don't have at a rate surpassing anything in human history. Whoever started it, Obama is in charge now. He alone is responsible for what happens from early 2009 onwards. Nobody else is.
You're whole agrument seems to be: "Others did it, so why not Obama too?" As if joining stupidity is not still stupidity. If that doesn't work, you say: "Well, Obama is not killing our economy at nearly the rate others did." Yes, Obama will only drain our LAST drops of blood. When we collapse, he can say he didn't start the bleeding...he just finished it.
You're proud of that? THAT is what your hopes are pinned on? LOL!
Hey Barn E, this may have escaped you but it didnít escape me. Rico gave some hard, cold stats to support his statement. You responded with pious platitudes mouthing GOP dogma. You lose.

Of course, but they donít deserve special recognition for it, which is what youíre reaching for. Lawful gun owning citizens are doing nothing but trying to protect their own personal interest to own a gun because itís protected by the 2nd Amend.

This is no different than an individual who is doing nothing but trying to protect his personal interest to call someone the ďNĒ word because itís protected by the 1st Amend.

They both get a vote, but itís not because of what they believe in.

Belligerent insults and regurgitated righty rhetoric is his M.O. He's not good for much else.

It seems that he makes a fool of himself under one name, then logs in under another name and pretends he's someone else.

It might be effective if he didn't act like the same ranting lunatic under all his aliases. ;)

Republicans/conservatives need to work harder, sacrifice even more to support the indolent dems.
No; and I think you'll agree with me on this one. Conservatives/Republicans need to work SMARTER, not harder. But, alas, "smarter" is not something one typically associates with a conservative or Republican. Pity.

I believe that the USA does best when we mind our own business and keep our noses out of other peoples business.

I didn't say that we should turn our backs on anyone. But, the people who are within range of North Korea's bombs are China, South Korea and Japan. All three of these nations are fully capable of dealing with North Korea.

If India wanted to take out Pakistan they would be in their right to do so. If the Israelis want to take out Iran they would be in the right as well. They are neighbors. I'm sure that none of those countries would disapprove of us taking out Mexico or Canada if we decided it was our last recourse.

I'm just tired of watching Israel manipulating US foreign policy in the middle east. If they want to take out their neighbors then I believe they should go for it. Just don't act like we should be the ones bleeding for their cause.
