National Parks Carry was attached to a bill dealing with credit cards. If it had been in a bill by itself, Obama never would have NEVER signed it. It was done as a compromise.(and for me personally, I believe an addition to a bill should NEVER be allowed if it has nothing to do with the root cause of the bill.)

And you are NOT allowed to carry on a train. The law change made it possible to transport a gun in your CHECKED BAG, not on your person, making the law in line with airplane travel.

This leftist monstrosity of today that people call "liberals" is a mockery and attack on Mill, Locke, Jefferson, and all the efforts of the Enlightenment.

This imbecilic pawn called Ratliff is merely one of those who are being taught that they are special and intelligent but ONLY if they join the movement of central authoritarianism. The weakest minds want to "belong" and be "special". Ratliff's cut and pastes reveal how desperate he/she is to establish themselves as something superior yet they don't even use reason or logic - just words that their handlers have provided them.

It is the essence of PATHETIC. Many Germans fell for it as well Ratliff.

----------
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:

"‘By definition’, Maurice Cranston rightly points out,‘a liberal is a man who believes in liberty’(1967: 459)....

...Liberals have typically maintained that humans are naturally in ‘a State of perfect Freedom to order their Actions…as they think fit…without asking leave, or depending on the Will of any other Man’(Locke, 1960 [1689]: 287)

Mill too argued that ‘the burden of proof is supposed to be with those who are against liberty; who contend for any restriction or prohibition…. The a priori assumption is in favour of freedom…’(1963, vol. 21: 262)

....From the eighteenth century right up to today, classical liberals have insisted that an economic system based on private property is uniquely consistent with individual liberty, allowing each to live her life —including employing her labor and her capital — as she sees fit.....

....What has come to be known as ‘new’,‘revisionist’,‘welfare state’, or perhaps best,‘social justice’, liberalism challenges this intimate connection between personal liberty and a private property based market order (Freeden, 1978; Gaus, 1983b; Paul, Miller and Paul, 2007)

You rightwing know-nothings think because you're using your own words it must be a sign of intelligence.

You should consider it simply means you're unread and uninformed.

If that's true you should be encouraging conservatives to buy guns. After all, if it's all hype or hysteria, won't they be just wasting their money preparing for something that'll never happen? Better they do that than send it to the Tea Party or the Republicans, right?
I think what scares liberals is that they know, in their heart of hearts, that liberalism is really just fascism waiting to bust out. They can hardly wait to take over every facet of everyone's life. At that point they don't want to face armed resistance as they go goose-stepping down main street wearing their jack-boots & brown shirts, waving their hammer & cycle red banner and praising Lord Obama's 5th consecutive term.
If you were a smart liberal you'd just buy stock in arms companies and continue to foster right-wing paranoia. Because their fears are groundless, according to you, since you are harmless & innocent. Then take the money you earn and donate it to liberal causes. Easy-peasy!
I do think they should buy guns and waste their money, yes. I'm laughing at the suckers who do so, in fact.

You clearly know nothing about liberalism OR fascism, if you equate them. A liberally-governed America defeated Fascism during WWII. Check it out - plenty of info about history online. It's particularly relevant on Pearl Harbor Day.

I will consider what you suggest about investing in arms companies, thanks.

Hysterically irrational class hatred, typical of today's Teabagger and Republican - although the latter are starting to distance themselves from you. Better watch out for that!

People pay taxes to support an enormous number of government functions. I'd advise you to just pay your taxes and shut up. No one really needs to hear constant, shrieking hysterical class envy and hatred from your type.

Obama was running for re-election.
Explain how Obama put that law in place. Congress had nothing to do with it right? You know, that Congress that Democrats keep claiming blocked everything they tried to do?

That would all be very interesting if "liberal" had anything to do with altruism or "caring" about people outside of your genetic blah blah blah.
Up until the "progressives" or "collectivists" (or "eugenicists") twisted and corrupted the meaning of the word "liberal" (like they do with every word or concept they get a hold of) the word was associated DIRECTLY with Individual Liberty. LIBERTY. The government was only to be used to PROTECT the LIBERTY of the INDIVIDUAL.
Now just like the leftists (not liberals) claim to care about people so they implement govt. healthcare like in Britain and soon in the US they then quickly limit services to those they deem useless to the State. Just like they come up with laws to implement "equal pay for women" they are really just the means to loot companies for money. Just like they promise promise promise everything the mentally weakest amongst us could want without working for it, they only do it for votes and to achieve central authoritarian power.
Now please consider the campaign of the recent presidential victor. It amounted to little more than "take more money from those with more money". That along with juvenile analogies, not hugging the garbage man attacks and the Julia cartoon......um, please tell me just how "intelligent" the leftists consider their followers and supporters.
Your cutting and pasting merely reveals that school credentials, brown skin, and having mammary glands have nothing to do with intelligence, the good of a nation, or the protection of Individual Liberty (liberalism). And when journalists are no longer journalists, and the schools are no longer places of education, and the government no longer protects - but instead attacks - the citizens of the country, it is no surprise that psychiatric journals would no longer care about the objective observation of the human mind and intelligence.
Your cut and paste was completely BASED on the FALSE definition of liberalism.
With the exception New Mexico, the ten poorest (HIGHEST WELFARE) states all voted for Romney. So much for out of touch Mitten's nitwit theory about losing due to "gifts from Obama."

Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).
Maryland $67,469
New Hampshire $67,287
Connecticut $67,165
New Jersey $65,072
Massachusetts $62,809
Virginia $62,776

The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.

Seems to me it’s the left with the class envy problem. They’re constantly screaming tax the rich. Despite the fact the rich as a very small minority of citizens pays virtually all the income tax so the poor leftist slobs can sit at home.

Since you only output data from your handlers - I will take this as you conceding my point. I mean, wouldn't you just re-post the "Psychology" cut and paste if you intended to "dispute" me?

As far as this post here. What does it REALLY prove? Maybe you should post something more specific as to where most of the money is going in these states but also ponder why MOST people in the States believe they are voting AGAINST the welfare state. Sorry but it's more complicated than your limited capabilities. But then again, the wealthiest states vote to have more of their wealth taken away by a bloated, corrupt, and inept government - so maybe you could address what appears to be contradiction there? Oh nevermind, you will just repost the "Psychology" cut-n-paste that is based on saying that reality is defined by the writer of leftist articles.

I do think though that the rich whitey states with their near homogenous populations should have to share in the demographics though - don't you? Otherwise them keeping their states white and their stats so "superior" could be seen as racist. Seriously, get the buses out and let's do some integration on a national scale so the stats will be more "equal".

Otherwise them keeping their states white and their stats so "superior" could be seen as racist. Seriously, get the buses out and let's do some integration on a national scale so the stats will be more "equal".
"Based on Census Bureau estimates, the nation’s white population, which was 85 percent in 1960 and 63 percent in 2011, will drop to minority status, about 47 percent, in 2050. Latino population, only 3.5 percent in 1960 and 17 percent last year, is projected to rise to 29 percent by then, while Asian-Americans, less than one percent 52 years ago and 5 percent last year, is seen as rising to 9 percent in 2050. The trend of fast-rising Latino population is happening in other traditionally Republican states such as Arizona and Texas."

In Iowa and New Hampshire, states without big minority populations, Obama won by gaining the support of nearly six in 10 women. Obama won 71% of the Asian-American vote. From the exit polls, President Obama’s support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%.

Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls.
