U.S. Grad rates rounded off

White 41% voted for Obama …White grad rate 75%
Hispanics 71% voted for Obama …Hispanics Grad rates 55%
Blacks 93% voted for Obama …. Black grad rates 50%

Another fact 2011 July 50.4% of all U.S. births were minority. Medicaid paid last year 48% of ALL U.S. births

Well Skippy by the FACTS .. Close to Half of the Democratic voter base is NOT educated…. So again another Dem that hasn’t a clue about your voter base.

Nothing is going to happen if the assault weapons has banned because there are number of weapon in the world to kill the human beings, actions should be taken to stop these kinds of crime and problems in this world. If the government conclude that the banning stops everything then they can do it or else the crime is not going to be stopped

That is why he gave us the right to bear arms.
So "God" talked to them?

"The documents and other writings"?

Of the FOUNDERS.

Not God.

"That is why he gave us the right to bear arms".

Of course he did, he was a gun owner himself.

Not according to SCOTUS
The court, in U.S. v Cruikshank(1875) stated that the right to keep and bear arms is not a right given by the constitution and is in no way dependent on that document for its existence. In plainer language, it is an inalienable right that, as Tench Coxe, the father of the 2nd Amendment, stated is " the birthright of every American". The right pre-existed the constitution and I may add, pre-existed the "free state".
"Not according to SCOTUS".

The supreme court.

NOT God.

The author of the 2nd amendment.

Still.........NOT God.

Did "God" write the constitution?

If "God" gave us these "rights", why did he only give them to us?

Poor tebagger.

"The Election Day polls were based on questionnaires completed by voters as they left voting stations throughout the country on Tuesday."

Darn, were they the same "polls" that predicted Romney would win the election?

So why did "God" only put those "rights" only in one document.

Why not the bible?

After all he wrote the thing.

Mayor Emanuel's Approval Rating In The Tank

Just 2 percent of Chicagoans surveyed said they strongly approve of the mayor's job performance, with 12 percent somewhat approving and 5 percent leaning that way. At the opposite end, 13 percent strongly disapprove, 9 percent somewhat disapprove and 13 percent lean toward disapproval.

In Chicago, that gives Mr. Emanuel a net minus 16 rating, down from the plus 4 he had in September, when 37 percent approved and 33 percent disapproved.

You're sooooo wrong I don't know where to begin. First,governments don't "give" rights.... They grant PRIVELEDGES. Rights are indemic to man. Governments,despotic governments ran by corrupt people disenfranchise the people of their "God given" rights. We,here and now are on the verge of seeing how that transpires. Obama,given the chance would gladly strip bare the limits placed on the government by our Constitution. Unfortunately too many like you are too stupid to realize in your adulation the loss of what you're freely giving away.

In case anyone is still discussing the subject of the forum.... below is the link to the inter-department memo that obammy and his goon holder had researched to prove their assault rifle ban was the best for our "safety", only thing is the memo states just the opposite and concludes the only way to enforce a ban is to confiscate and outlaw all guns,ammo and mags PERIOD! Looks like we found who hitler was reincarnated into, the closet homo-muslim marxist obammy!

Um, wrong.

Humans give themselves rights through the institution of governments. There is no such thing as an intrinsic "right" possessed from some higher authority. Unless you can PROVE otherwise?

There is no evidence that Mr. Obama would take away any significant rights granted by the Constitution, or would be able to if he wished to.

Your claims are, in a word, bunkum.

A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. Seig Heil

Um, wrong, comrade.

The Constitution doesn't "grant" rights, you despicable turd, it LIMITS the federal government's INFRINGEMENT of the enumerated (and other) individual NATURAL RIGHTS, which are endowed by our CREATOR (go re-read the Declaration.)

If you don't believe that, then you will be happiest in the PRC or (still existing but clandestine) USSR. They'd love to have another card-carrying commie. Or if you don't want to be that far from family, Castro's Cuba would do.

There is no paranoia . The left wants to disarm us. There are plenty of statements they have made that their goal is to disarm us. Stick your head in the sand if you wish.
