Why do families have to lose their children to our ‘sacred’ guns?

In 2008, 20,000 children were injured by guns.

In 2011, 9000 plus Americans were murdered with guns.

Between 2008-09 almost 6000 kids were killed with guns in America.

Every year close to 90 preschoolers are killed with guns.

That's twice the number of cops shot, per year.

What are acceptable numbers for the fanatical NRA?

You have it somewhat backwards.

The USA is still second to none, but can be much better.

The Russians and Chinese citizenry are massively worse off than the citizens of Western Nations.

Compare the 1912 Elections with the 2012 Elections
January 1, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/b7bvdce
Before the electoral year of 2012 slinks into history, it is worth a comparative glance back to the electoral year of 1912 to give us some jolting perspective on how degraded our contemporary elections, voter performance and election expectations have become.

One hundred years ago, workers were marching, picketing and forming unions. Eugene Debs, the great labor leader and presidential candidate that year, spoke to outdoor labor rallies of 100,000 to 200,000 workers and their families gathered to protest low wages and working conditions.

Farmers were flexing their muscle with vibrant political activity in progressive parties and organizing farm cooperatives, through their granges, and pushing for proper regulation of the banks and railroads.

On the presidential ballot were Republican incumbent William Howard Taft, Democrat Woodrow Wilson, and the Progressive “Bull Moose” Party’s choice former president Theodore Roosevelt. Taft would be repudiated for being far too populist and too critical of corporations by today’s Republican Party. He favored national, not state, charters for “national corporations.”

The Democrats were committed to their platform of 1908 which asked “Shall the people rule? Is the overshadowing issue which manifests itself in all the questions now under discussion.” The context was shaped by the giant corporations (“called the trusts”) and their lobbies in Washington, which had to be curbed. The Supreme Court in 1911 had just ruled to break up the giant Standard Oil trust.

Women’s suffrage, abolition of child labor, workers’ compensation; states adopting the initiative, referendum, and recall; the eight-hour work day, minimum wage laws (Massachusetts was the first in 1912), taxing corporate profits and the “inheritance of fortunes,” were some of the many hot issues of 1912.

Taft, Wilson and Roosevelt fought over who was the most progressive. Theodore Roosevelt in an August 1912 speech declared that “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”/ http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/01-1...

MUQ, news you wil not see on IRNA or Al Jazeera...
New census figures show that the Jewish population in Israel has passed the 6 million mark. It's a "significant" milestone, reports the Guardian, as that's also how many Jews died at the hands of the Nazis. A hair more than three-quarters of the 7.98 million people living in Israel are Jewish; another 20% are Arab, with the remaining residents categorized as "other." But the number of Jews worldwide hasn't changed much since the Holocaust, with the global population hovering just above 13 million.

The chief historian of the country's Holocaust museum says that while there is "great joy" in the number, "now Israel's Jewish population is close to half the Jewish nation worldwide. We are almost the only Jewish community that is growing." Meanwhile, a Palestinian agency released figures that estimate that the number of Arabs living in Israel and Palestine will match the Jewish population by 2016 and surpass it by 2020.

In my opinion why should Northkorea want war? There is not the slightest necessity for war. But for the defence they have to be prepared.
