What about me? I am neither. Why would people want to kill someone because they have more than someone else? Obama is rich. Would you want to see him killed?

Want to see them dead? There would be no jobs and all the poor would starve to death because they had just killed off anybody that could help them or give them work. They would probably think you were rich because you have a house and a decent car. That is more than they might have. Then you might just consider yourself shot dead. It sounds to me that if poor people are thinking that way they will be extinct in a short time. Being poor is better than dead. They can at least try to work their way up and better themselves by hard work like you and most decent Americans do everyday.

Who do think is more prone to by a gun where there is not a background check? A criminal maybe? Who needs 100 round clips? Gangstas??? Why do you think any form of government regulations on this issue is them tryin to take your guns? I'd be for it, because it might keep these guns out of the wrong hands. Some people are just that ignorant and will have no problem shooting someone that simply has more than them. Some people have known only suffering all their life and want to kill people. With the current laws in place these people can go to any gun show and purchase a truck load of guns wthout even showing ID. Doesn't that seem foolish to you? The point I was making is if the sh*t ever hits the fan. There are far more poor people than rich and most do blame them for their problems. I'd be trying to limit their access to guns by any means possible. Even if it meant limiting myself somewhat. Common sense Dave Commmon sense. I don't want anyone to die or be shot.

Again, stating a conclusion before all the evidence has been gathered and examined -especially when there has been no explanation for what Tamarlan did during his 6 MONTHS in Russia - you know, the same country from which the family asked for and received political asylum.
Are there more things that we can do, whether it’s engaging in — engaging with communities where there’s a potential for self-radicalization at this — of this sort?

No wonder the official film of Right Wing Wacko World is "Wizard of Oz"-

<quoted text>At last, you've got it. That's right, a business' sole purpose is to make a profit. That allows the person who started the business to take care of their family, and pay their employees which allows them to take care of their families. Healthy self interest among its citizens is GOOD for a country. Healthy self interest means that people will make intelligent decisions to better themselves in order to better the lives of themselves and those they care for.
Contrary to the public positions of the Left, a business is NOT created so that it can provide jobs and benefits for its employees. That is a wonderful side effect of a business' success. That is what has made this economy a force to be reckoned with in the past and what has led to a standard of living and the opportunity to better one's life in this country that have been the envy of the world.
No that means that the purpose of the business is to make money:

- through any means possible,
- externalizing all costs onto the taxpayers, neighbors, and/or customers,
- with no concern for pollution, injury, and damages they create,
- paying the absolute minimum in wages.

That is the purpose of a business.

That means you have to regulate businesses as the amoral entities they are.

Nothing wrong with businesses - they are just amoral entities designed to maximize profit and avoid personal responsibilities for the owners.

Boy, you really are desperate for a comeback when this is the best you can come with. I guess all the writers and speechwriters need to never again use a guote because they like the phraseology or the flow of the words. You have now determined that when one uses a quote, one is always referring back to the original speech or document as the basis of your rebuttal....
It's called an allusion...

- An expression designed to call something to mind without mentioning it explicitly; an indirect or passing reference.

- The practice of making such references, esp. as an artistic device.

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
I'm afraid Logic and Reason would take one look at your posts and say "away from me, I never knew you."

You set up the allusion by referring to Logic and Reason as entities that have the power of speech, non-human entities that interact with humans are often called aliens or gods, apparently you felt that the gods allusion was most fitting since you then had them speak the words of Jesus. Thus exhibiting power and authority over your opponent.

Of course you bristle at the mere mention of your previous statements.

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
It is interesting how it continues to be those on the Left who keep bringing up Jesus, not those of us on the Right - we just respond.

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
I invite you to find any post of mine that mentioned religion that was not a response to something insulting you on the Left brought up.

Ironically, sitting in a seminar right now on how to use company money to fund defined benefit pensions for high level executives, which prevents "clawback" of the funds after the business declares bankruptcy, and violates it negotiated contracts for labor and creditors.

Just keep claiming its a level playing field.

After all, we all have an extra $10 or $20 Million Dollars to fund defined benefit plans for ourselves- which are safe from the creditors and the employees we screw.

Anyone can do it.

Can't they ?

"Are there more things that we can do,...." - this is the portion of the sentence that necessitates the question mark.

"where there's a potential for self-radicalization at this - OF THIS SORT?" (emphasis mine)- this portion of the sentence is clearly a conclusion - of that there is no question.

...Saying that raising taxes helps the poor by funding government programs that help them would probably be your opinion. And, I would say that if those programs actually helped people, I might agree with you, but they don't. This country has spent $15 trillion over the past 4 decades and what has been the result - no net change in the % of those considered poor in this country. Instead what we have seen is an explosion in the illegitimacy rate as these same programs discourage marriage and fathers staying with the family. We have had an escalating crime rate in the black community and an ever increasing % of young black men in prison as a direct result of growing up in single parent households where the boys have no constructive male role models in their lives as a direct result of these same policies and programs.
We have spent over 13-trillion dollars on defense over the last 4 decades, and yet there is still strife in the world and those that we must defend ourselves, and others, against.

In spite of these defense programs, or some might say as a result of, there is actually more strife in the world today and we may even be manufacturing our enemies of tomorrow with our actions today.

The fact that you had to go to Wiki to try and find out how many Americans were killed in Benghazi would imply you have been in a comatose state since September - not really surprised though, there were a lot of virtual zombies pulling that Democrat lever in November.

What is there to address about 9/11 - radical Islamists (you know, the term that the AP has banned from its columns - more PC run amok) murdered almost 3,000 innocent people - mostly Americans.

And what was President Bush's response on that day:
"Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts.….These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong.
A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America.…."

--------
"No wonder the official film of Right Wing Wacko World is "Wizard of Oz"-
- Pay no attention to the issue !
- Look look over here !"

Now this really is hilarious. Pot, meet kettle. Here is Obama's response on Sept 12, 2013:

"But in an interview with CBS newsman Steve Kroft after the Rose Garden statement but on the same day, Obama was asked what he meant because Kroft indicated it was unclear:
Kroft: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya attack. Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?
Obama: Well it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans."

---------
And in a real effort at "Look, look over here!"

September 12: Secretary Clinton and President Obama issue statements condemning both the video and the attacks.

September 13: Press Secretary Jay Carney condemns video and violence at a news conference.

September 14: The bodies of slain Americans return to Andrews Air Force Base. President Obama again blames the YouTube video.

September 16: U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appears on Sunday talk shows and says the attacks were provoked by the video, exclusively.

September 17: State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland refuses to call attacks an act of terror.

September 20: Obama refuses to call attack terrorism, citing insufficient information.

September 25: On ABC’s “The View,” Obama says,“we don’t have all of the information yet so we are still gathering.”

September 25: To the U.N. assembly, Obama blames “A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.

September 26: Published reports show U.S. Intel agencies and the Obama Administration knew within 24 hours that al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist were involved.

-----
And how many have been arrested and held by the US since the Benghazi murders?

September 27: Innocence of Muslims filmmaker Mark Basseley Youseff (aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula) is arrested and denied bail on the charges of “probation violation.”

Oh, yes, of course, because in the minds of the Left ALL business owners:
- are horrible, selfish people who care nothing about their employees
- want to pollute the environment where their own children are growing up
- have no interest in keeping the best employees by paying them good salaries

Yea, sure - that's how you run a successful business - spoken like the clueless who have no idea what it takes to risk everything you have to start a business and get it going and keep it going. That is such a brilliant operating plan you describe.

Completely false comparison, we have no control over, nor knowledge of what other countries or entities MIGHT have done had the US not held a "peace through strength" position through much of the last four decades.

We had COMPLETE control over the enactment and administration of the "war on poverty" programs - and they have been, without doubt, a complete failure by any standard with which you wish to measure them.
