<quoted text>Do you know what the word "fundamentally" means?
The laws in America are not to form a Utopia. They are to just help us improve. That is all we can do. You seem to expect government to fix all our ills, I do not. I do expect them to help if they can, you do not.
The laws they are talking about are not very restrictive, so it is reasonable to assume they are not going to stop the nuts. Our constitution prohibits absolute gun bans, so their is no way to make fundamental changes. I am not for absolute gun bans, because of the constitution and the understanding freedom has its safety risks we must bear.
The question is, does Biden, know what "fundamentally" means?:)

Funny that you should mention a drop when there were 36 months of growth previous to that. How observant.
Thank you Arnold on me being observant. All good things must come to an end and 36 months of growth has hit the skids along with the rise in unemployment. I notice you didn't address that issue. Maybe you can write Bobby Jindal another letter and ask him why.

<quoted text>If you can not see the difference in the step up in terrorists threats then and now, put you head back in the sand. Ambassador Stevens told the State Dept. of a threat, he was ignored. Stevens and his team were in a "hot zone" that was the reason he was sent there, according to the Sec. of State, in front of Congress. Yet, your "team" ignored his warnings of a threat. I don't believe an Ambassador told President Bush squat. You know Mike, it's easy for you and I to be "armchair" quarterbacks here, I try not to do it on this issue because I knew someone who died on flight 93. I know her family and they were briefed extensively on that event. I don't believe any American wants to "sweep that under the rug" as you put it.
Bush was warned of 9/11. Do I blame Bush for 9/11? No. I am just showing the comparison between the attacks. You have yet to show my comparison is not valid.
Knowing someone who died in the attack does not make you correct.
I believe Bush failed and I believe Obama failed in preventing the attacks.
The difference I see is the massive difference in the number of people who died,health hazards caused, property damage done and the fact one was on the homeland.

<quoted text>Mike, I see both sides of this issue but is there a solution? I know people who admit they will not take a job because: I make more if "I draw", I'm gonna take the gov. for everything I can, or (this one is my fav,) I only work for cash 'cause I get a check. I SWEAR I have heard each and every one of these excuses. Lady came in the store a couple weeks ago bought about $200. in ammo and is on a list for 2 Glocks. Asked me if we "were hiring" said "I ask everyone, I have to to keep drawing". Could it be that finally people are abusing that system and it's out of hand?
Lu, they use their EBT cards to buy lottery tickets and scratch offs. This I have personally witnessed. I guess Mike's resolve is to make abuse of the system stronger. Gotta wonder why this country is going broke, we're buying guns and lottery tickets for those that won't/don't work. Geez, go figure.

So one month with less than good numbers means America has "hit the skids"? I wonder what you called the poor numbers in the Bush days as they took a massive downward spiral?

<quoted text>Maybe, therein lies the problem. Education should be considered a privilege, not a right, entitlement, etc,,,, as it is in the many countries that kick out asses every year. Hence the difference with private schools, it IS a privilege to attend, therefor the scores, participation by students, parents, & teachers, and the overall experience is greater than govt schools.
So public schools are not the problem it is just the attitude of some people in them? I can agree to that. Now what do you suggest we do with that information?

Not sure why you jumped from the issue of denying the constitutional right of freedom of expression to lying about what I am. Likely because you lost the arguement and now wish to create a diversion like you always do.

What part of "Stevens was sent" BECAUSE it was a hot zone do you not understand? That is why your "comparison" is not valid. Clinton said that in front of Congress. Bush didn't know the towers, DC and the Pentagon were "hot zones." Bush didn't SEND people there.

And if you truly believed your rhetoric of "once born in America" line, then why so serious about socialism?
Every has the right to try or fail. As you eloquently point out, there are no absolutes, right? If you truly believed that then there wouldn't be any need for entitlements for the "economically challenged" folk because of their inability to manage their wealthy or money because that would be considered an absolution to their survival.
You fundamentally fail to understand my philosophy.
Now show what absolutes or lack of absolutes I am contradicting? Seems to me it is you who is wishing for absolutes in the situation. You wish for those who fail to be good with money to die because they did not win. Can you get any more absolutist than this?
I wish for safety nets because this is not a game and I have empathy for those who are not the best players. You do not, because you are like a psychopath.
I have no wish to be like a psychopath. WWJD?

Blaming Americans? It was your side that blamed the attacks on a YouTube video that was made by an American....do you not remember? I can provide a video to jog your memory if needed!
Pointing out motives is not blaming the persons who caused the motivation.
I fully support the right to make a movie showing religion as flawed.
Now the movie in question was edited by someone who did not actually make the movie. I think some copyright infringements occured.
Have you seen the clip in question? I have, and it was clearly dubbed over.

If Bush did not know the towers were a target for terrorists, he should never have been elected president. Maybe he did not know the towers were attackedless than a decade earlier, he is pretty damned ignorant of history. Maybe Bush did not read the PDB that was titled "Bin Laden determined to attack the United States" and went on to say hijackings may be one means to do so.

I have no idea what you are talking about with Stevens being sent. Can you articulate a full thought or are you thoughts that broken up?

VP Joe Biden admits yesterday that new gun control laws won't work!

"Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to 1,000 a year from what it is now,” Biden told reporters Thursday afternoon after he spent over an hour lunching with Democratic senators at the Capitol.

If they're not going to work, as the FBI reported weeks ago, then why waste the time and money debating the issue?
This is the bait. After admitting additional gun laws will not work I would not be surprised if he and the administration attempt to seek more drastic measures like total disarmament of guns.

Evidently you have no idea what "proficient" means.

Now I do not wish to be a hypocrite like yourself, so I will post some links.

The Newsweek Magazine poll "What America Knows", conducted Princeton Survey Research Associates International, regularly asks American citizens a wide range of questions relating to world events past and present and a number of more trivial questions of general knowledge.[7] On five occasions the following question has been asked:
"Do you think Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq was directly involved in planning, financing, or carrying out the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001?" September 2003 responses: 47% Yes, 37% No, 16% not sure.
January 2004 responses: 49% Yes, 39% No, 12% not sure.
September 2004 responses: 42% Yes, 44% No, 14% not sure.
October 2004 responses: 36% Yes, 51% No, 13% not sure.
June 2007 responses: 41% Yes, 50% No, 9% not sure.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polls_ab...

New York Times / CBS News have conducted a number of polls on the Iraq War that have included the question:
"Was Saddam personally involved in 9/11?"[10] April 2003 responses: 53% said Yes, 38% said No.
October 2005 responses: 33% said Yes, 55% said No.
September 2006 responses: 31% said Yes, 57% said No.
September 2007 responses: 33% said Yes, 58% said No.

A poll reported in the Washington Post in September 2003 found that nearly 70 percent of respondents believed Saddam Hussein was probably personally involved in the attacks.[19]

Again, he did not say they will not work. This is only your interpretation of what he said. My interpretation was more like they would not work as well as you think they thought they would work. He was clarifying he did not actually think as you thought he was thinking.

Also he was likely telling you to not expect some magical changes to the behavior of nuts.

So if the stable calcium metal isotopes in bones for instance, became unstable from the capture of thermal neutrons, what would be the half life of say 45 Ca?

Now you guys can go back to old airplanes; can't get my geek on about those.
