Oh FRANKIE? Where for arte thou francis?

Listen to what this rightwing wingnutz is saying...
Joe Biden today urged people to buy shotguns while speaking at a town hall hosted by Parents magazine. During the forum, Biden took a question from someone who asked whether a proposed ban on semi-automatic weapons would put ordinary citizens at risk, reports the Hill. No way, said the VP. "If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun."

He then relayed that he owned two himself and once instructed wife Jill to fire a few blasts around the house if there was trouble. "You don't need an AR-15," he said. "It's harder to aim, it's harder to use and, in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun."

Gee frankie, wonder how much stokc Say it ain't so rightwing Joe has in berreli or remington? Buy a shotgun...or better still go down to Watts and procure one that ain't registered...

MOST all murders are committed in the U.S. are by DEMOCRATIC voters.

FBI reports Hispanics are 3 times more likely to commit murder then Non Hispanic whites. Blacks are 7 times more likely to commit murder then Whites

41% of Whites voted for Obama… Probability 41% of white murders are Dems
71% Hispanic Voted for Obama….. Probability 71% of Hispanic murders are Dems
93% Blacks voted for Obama……… Probability 93% of Black murders are Dems

It get WORSE Puerto Rico voted to become a state. P.R. had a Dem governor for the last 50 years andis staunchly an anti-gun country with extensive GUN control laws there. P.R. does not have 1 single GUN store on the whole island yet out of 3.8 million people, P.R. has 1,100 murders a year and that rate continues to climb annually.
How is this possible?

Boehner, WSJ Lash Out at Obama over Sequester

In a a scathing Wall Street Journal op-ed, Boehner pointed the finger firmly at the president as being responsible for getting the country “in this mess.”

-------

The Wall Street Journal weighed in in a separate editorial, referring to the White House event that Obama hosted on Tuesday,saying in a blistering editorial that

“Americans can expect more such melodrama in the coming days.

In what the paper called “a public service” it broke down what it described as the president’s three biggest political tricks.

The first is what it calls the Washington Monument ploy designed “to stir public support for all government spending by shutting down vital services first.

Not so fast, an email sent on July 31 2011 by John Boehner shows he is the one that came up with the sequester idea. Congress passed sequestration before obama signed it, and the whole self-defeating exercise was carried out in response to Tea Party Republicans’ insistence that we play chicken with the debt ceiling. In typical fashion, as the GOPer leader ship has done so many, many times before, it’s the straw-man tactic at its height of hypocrisy!!

Has the NRA created a monster that we can’t slay? The Second Amendment does not protect, and never has, an individual's right to own firearms willy-nilly, its purpose, at the time, was purely to guarantee that the states could maintain their own militias. Yes, how conveniently one forgets, the southern states wanted to preserve the “slave patrol militias”!
We need changes not just in laws but also in social mores – just as we’ve stigmatized drunken driving. Not to mention other kinds of irresponsibility. Traffic safety works extremely well because of strict rules, laws, registration, licensing and strict enforcement. Apply the same concept to today’s sophisticated and powerful weaponry – it’s a no-brainer!
As a nation, we regulate fire exits, but not 100-round magazines. We shield youngsters in cinemas from violence – but only if it’s on the screen. We have a ratings system to protect children from nudity (it’s a real killer) or offensive language but not 100-round magazines ...

Why thank you francis, I thought you would NEVER ask (or axe if you prefer)...how effing stupid...hmmmm, well ol boy, let me put it this way...well, besides that opinion = fact that you are the only one I know that was ever fired from a cushy 6 figure gig as chief inspector at the M & M factory for throwing away all the W's, and the opinion = fact that you are the only person I know who was kicked out of the IRA for burning your lips on the exhaust pipe trying to blow up a bus...but to be straight with you, honestly, I think = fact that if you scored one more IQ point you would equal the intelligence of a pot plant...
HEY...speaking of stupid,,,did you hear about the car bombs in Demascus that murdered 50 muslim women and children today? I don't know about you...but I truly believe that if we can get Obumble and the Dems to ban car bombs in Demascus and force anyone owning a car bomb to register it each year...we could avoid such tragedies in the future...

Answer...yes, to big to slay so shut up, load the banana clips and lock and load, baybee...

And with the thousands of fire regulations in place fire departments still responded to 384,000 home fires in the United States, which claimed the lives of 2,640 people (not including firefighters) and injured another 13,350, not including firefighters...perhaps a ban on fires that hurt people should be the solution, yes?

Gee Francis...speaking of effing stupid...something tells me these puppies couldn' find the fire exits...regulations really are the effective tool...

Downer of the day: A fire last night at a strip mall in Miami killed 30 puppies, reports the Miami Herald. The pups died of smoke inhalation—all were French and English bulldogs, breeds known for having respiratory trouble. Firefighters were able to rescue a handful, but the owner of Beverly Hills Puppies says most of those in the store died, reports WSVN-TV. The bulldogs sell for $2,000 apiece. No word yet on what caused the fire.

Ban fire exit regulations that are not pet friendly now! And BAN fires at malls with pet stores...

One simple question...WHY do I need to be careful what I say about your self professed prophets? Are you careful what you say when speaking of matters that may be sensitive to me? If I don't like your hatred writing of jews and Israelites do I have the right to WARN YOU? Of course NOT...If I don't like what you have to say about Hindus does that give me right over you to make you quit saying how you truly feel? ABsolutely not...Besides, what has Muhammid done to earn the right not to be talked? He was illiterate, he forced a nine year old into marraige, he led a life of killing and forced submissions...yet because you have been brainwashed into accepting without question his merits of prophetism...that means that I cannot talk about him? There is an old saying in Tinyearls part of the country...it goes something like this.....FFFUUUUUHHHHHGggetta Boudit! Should I translate this for you my dear esteemed Comrade MUQ?
There is only "one sentence in your entire post"...which is worth answering.

Where is your "evidence" that our prophet "forced Lady Aiyesha to marry him".... do not present your assumptions.

Where is your proof? Just think you are standing in a court of law and you lay this charge on our prophet.

Answer it, Comrade AB.

In reality you are no Comrade. All your pretensions are only skin deep.

Let us hear your "proofs" that prophet "forced" lady Aiyesha to marry her.

Aisha was the daughter of Muhammad's close friend Abu Bakr, was she not? She was betrothed with ABsolutely no say in the matter to Jubayr ibn Mut'im,was she not? When Khawlah bint Hakim suggested that Muhammad marry Aisha after the death of Muhammad's first wife Khadija, the previous agreement regarding marriage of Aisha with ibn Mut'im was put aside by common consent...Would you care to guess what say Jubayr had in this "common consent" agreement, COMRADE MUQ? I am sure it probably went something like this...

Muhammad: I want your promised bride for my self pleasures...

Jubayr: ABsolutely not...she has been promised to me!...

Muhammad: I KILL YOU! And then your father and then your mother...

Jubayr: So what time should I deliver her to you?

Comrade MUQ, it is a given that Aisha was five or six years old when betrothed to Muhammad and that she stayed in her parents' home until the age of nine when the marriage was consummated with Muhammad, then 53, in Medina.
What about this stroy is false so far, my esteemed comrade?

After the "consummation" of NINE YEAR OLD Aisha to 53 YEAR OLD Muhammad...she and Sawda, were given apartments adjoined to the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi mosque...TRUE OR FALSE Comrade MUQ?

I am sure that in your world it is not considered "FORCE" to make your sister marry who ever your father decides she should be married to..but over here in God's country we believe that both male and female should have the same choices...got it COMRADE MUQ?

So when are we going to discuss the Ayatollah Khomeini?

...no more treating women like dogs...

Once again, rape and murder has India outraged—this time the killing of three young sisters, aged 7, 9, and 11, reports the Guardian (the AP corrects the age of the youngest girl). The three girls, who lived in a remote central India village in Maharashtra province, went missing on Feb. 14 on their way home from school. Police found the girls' bodies in an old well two days later and called their deaths "accidental." Only after angry villagers blocked a national highway on Wednesday did state officials take notice.

The head of the local police station has been suspended and district police have taken over the investigation, putting 30 officers on the case. "We've got some strong, solid indications and we're working very hard," says the female superintendent. The government offered 1 million rupees ($18,500) in compensation to the girls' mother, a widow and laborer, but it only angered her. "No amount of money is going to bring my girls back," she says. "I appeal to the government to catch the culprits early and hang them."

Times....they are a'changing in your former nation, eh Comrade MUQ
