How do the rich get more than 100% of the growth of the nation? Let's say the economy is growing by 2% per year, and the rich started by getting 50% of all the increase and the workers got 50% of the increase. Each would get 1% growth. To put numbers on it, let's say an average worker hour was worth $100 and the rich got $50 and the worker got $50. with growth in the first year, the rich then should get $51 and the worker gets $51. Instead the rich then gets $53, while the worker now only gets $49. The rich got more than the 2% growth, and the workers gave up more money to the rich. So the growth was 2% and the rich got more than 100% of that growth by taking from what the workers used to get.

Gitmo still in operation? Yup, that is one of the reasons the democrats are not my party. The Pat Act is another. I won't support any party that supports the elimination of our freedom.

Rights removed? Since the Pat Act removed them all, and is clearly not constitutional, and that law is in force, the constitution is no longer being used; particularly by the crop of GOP only supreme court justices who currently occupy the bench.

As to the constant cry of the NRA that by some magic that unless we defend the right of those wanting to kill children all our rights are diminished, you have simply bought their propaganda.

Lt. J. Paul Vance, the face of an ongoing Connecticut State Police investigation into worst grade school shooting in U.S. history, on Thursday debunked media and Internet reports that Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza killed his victims with handguns and not the Bushmaster XM-15 E2S rifle that is now the focus of a proposed federal assault weapons ban.

All 26 of Lanza's victims were shot with the .223 caliber semi-automatic rifle, said Vance, who bristled at claims to the contrary during an interview with Hearst Connecticut Newspapers.

"It's all these conspiracy theorists that are trying to mucky up the waters," said Vance, the longtime state police spokesman.

Multiple Second Amendment and gun owner websites have attempted to cast doubts on whether the Bushmaster XM-15, a type of AR-15 rifle that is currently legal, was used in the Dec. 14 carnage by Lanza.

Some have cited a Dec. 15 "Today" show video clip from the day after the shooting, in which NBC News Justice Department correspondent Pete Williams said that four handguns were recovered inside Sandy Hook Elementary School and that the Bushmaster rifle was found in the trunk of a car owned by Lanza's slain mother, Nancy Lanza.

"There's no doubt that the rifle was used solely to kill 26 people in that school," Vance said.

Twenty children ages 7 and under and six female educators were killed when Lanza forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and sprayed the building with bullets before turning a gun on himself.

Vance said he made it abundantly clear during his media briefings since the tragedy that Lanza carried out the shooting with the Bushmaster rifle.

"I personally articulated that probably a dozen times in Newtown," Vance said.

The only time Lanza used a handgun at the school was to commit suicide, according to Vance.

The State Police went so far as a to issue a news release on Jan. 18 listing the weapons recovered from inside the school, which included the Bushmaster, a Glock 10-mm handgun and a Sig-Sauer P226 9-mm handgun. An Izhmash Canta-12 12-gauge shotgun was seized from the trunk of the suspect's car.

Sales of AR-15 assault rifles would be banned under the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, which was introduced Thursday on Capitol Hill and is being sponsored by Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy, as well as Newtown's new Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty. Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, whose district immediately borders Newtown, is also a co-sponsor.

"There's no question that the AR-15 was used, the Bushmaster shot those children with multiple rounds and was instrumental in the massacre," Blumenthal told Hearst Thursday after a Capitol Hill news conference. "Those children and educators might well be alive today if not for the assault weapon and high-capacity magazines."

A message thread entitled "AR-15 was NOT used in Newtown CT Shooting!" appeared Wednesday on the website AR15.com , which accused media outlets such as CNN and host Piers Morgan of running with the story to promote its liberal anti-gun agenda.

"I remember in the initial hours of this shooting, the police said they found the rifle in the car," the anonymous poster wrote. "But the administration-controlled (mainstream media) had a pre-planned attack already waiting, to ban so-called assault weapons and jumped on that line of reporting, knowing it was a lie, which included people like Piers Morgan who said the shooter used an AR-15 that shoots hundreds of rounds per minute, as if it were a machine gun."

Blumenthal had not heard of the chatter.

"The shotgun was in the trunk of the car," Blumenthal said. "The Bushmaster and two pistols were brought into the schoolhouse."

But of course you're noted for projecting your own failures and inadequacies onto others. It's why you POST here, after all.

Excellent rebuttal. I've been hearing that 'the AR-15 was in the trunk, stop blaming AR-15s, waaah!' complaint from the gunners so I assumed it was invented, but this settles it once and for all.

The truth is not in these people. Who cares if it was in the trunk anyway? He still had it and COULD have used it.

The lefty agenda media is crying about attempts to change national presidential law among others. True, if you redo the previous election there might have been some benifit to Romney. But have they rerun the numbers to see if Obama would've benefited in any state. Point being law changes work both ways no matter who the party is.

I say go to popular vote with more fequent auditing and recounts in districts with low margins of victory.
