Oblamer didn't vote on the Iraqi invasion because he was still a do nothing community organizer,not in the Senate.

Don't you remember how Kerry straddled the issue?
He voted in favor before he was opposed.
Translation;He voted in favor of the Iraqi invasion.

You're telling others to get it straight?
I told you he was a moron. He doesn't know anything about Obastard other than he was elected in 2008 and 2012. What a laugh. Uninformed and uneducated voter. Typical Obastard sheeple. LOL.

The fact is that carrying guns in public is not an effective form of self-defense and endangers the public. It is entirely reasonable to demand that Public carry must require a clear need for self-defense distinguishable from the greater community. An individual must demonstrate a special need for self-defense based on an objective threat to her safety. The reason such a statutory scheme provides the perfect balance is because it preserves the right of self-defense to those individuals who show a need while protecting the public by limiting the number of concealed carry permits that are issued. We have laws in every single state to protect children from nudity or offensive language but not from gun-fire?

<quoted text>The Fool is back!! Here we have someone that only has 1 goal. And the goal is to post untruthful statements attempting to deceive others unsuspecting of the truth.

You Fool state: " SNAP is a highly reputable program" No Way, it is riddled with fraud. There are no checks and balances, you state what your income and dependents are, and they in turn determine your assistance. No one checks anything out to see if it's true, that's why all the fraud. Last year 78.4 billion was paid out on food stamps. Now that sure says something about your hero bomos presidency. US has 50 states, there are more people on the program than the entire populations of 25 states. And you say white people should be happy about the "loving support" of food stamps. Your a dill, these people want jobs, isn't that what your hero claimed he was going to do, if elected. Well it's been 5 years now, Where are the Jobs ???

I am clueless why you think HERO ZIMMIE is on food stamps, he isn't but should be along with long term unemployment benefit after what Florida did by arresting him, then the trial.

Then you Fool state, HERO ZIMMIE is a free loader. He was employed prior to having to shoot that THUG. The state of Florida made him go into hiding and forego his career. One side of your mouth claims he's a free loader, the other side of your mouth claims the black panthers should get him. Which is it??

You should keep your nose stuck up your own Butt, and leave HERO ZIMMERMANS alone!!!
He is one of the idiots my kid tells me about at the grocery store. He bags $600.00 worth of groceries purchased by food stamps and loads it for them in their nice Range Rover. Shitzen 1 is a joke.

The people that kill me are those who checkout with food stamps, and then afterwards, they put beer, wine, cigarettes and pet food on the belt and pay for that cash.

Criminals would just love that. What criminals hate is the idea that just about anybody in a public place could be armed. That's why most of these criminal acts take place in gun-free zones.

Per capita blacks take far more social services, commit far more crimes, live in far more single parent households, have a far higher number of drug and alcoholic addictions, graduate school less and go to prison more often
Would you like me to post the link again for you my little animal??
Thank you for finally pointing out those startling facts here. Truly. Now we white men know what those statistics LOOK LIKE, but we will NEVER know how that injustice must FEEL. You make my liberal point even more than I have recently. Those sad statistics reflect TRUE INJUSTICE against our black population, and other people of color as well.

The genuine and reasonable question remains. HOW DO WE UNDO THE INJUSTICE CAUSED BY RACISM AND THE WHITE SUPREMACY POLICIES WHICH CAUSED THESE STATISTICS TO HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE? Do tell...

I have carried a gun in public for almost 30 years and I used it on two different occasions and both times saved my life

Tell me what else could I carry that would be a better defense and fit under my shirt??

Fact is that black gangbangers kill more innocent people in a week than licensed people with a gun kill in a decade

Typical lib: it's always somebody else's fault.
Every American citizen is responsible for their own success, failures and plight in this country. The only exception are those mentally or physically challenged.
White people don't make blacks rob banks, stores, pedestrians. White people don't go into their neighborhoods and run the place down. Only the individual black people do.
I don't know of many successful people who blame others for their failures, but there are plenty of successful people who take challenges head-on and overcome.
Typical unintelligent response to a complex issue. You seem to think that American citizens live unaffected by public policy and societal bigotry.

Easy comment to make, coming from someone who has historically written that policy and practiced that bigotry. True, on an individual level, no one person forces another to commit a crime. However, when one segment of society writes all of the rules and makes sure they benefit by them, how do you think natural consequences will play themselves out? For someone who has disproportionately benefited from the American public education system, you aren't that bright.

Try reading the IRS link before you make a bigger fool of your self

His legal bill is more than a person can receive as a gift in a year with out owing taxes on the gift

Liberals want to reinstate that estate tax that is a gift your parents left you when they died..........ROTFLMAO

Now, don't go and use big words you know nothing about. Your response had nothing to do with my post. Read again, maybe you can make the letters bigger. Your grammar and spelling pretty much prove the last point I made. No, it is called critical thinking and you are not practicing it.

You make no sense, I want to respond to the racist rant but I cannot decipher your writing. Try again, you get a sad face on this one.
