However, you do have a point.
As long as the Gov is giving away the money the workers make to leeches like you, we are doomed to become like Greece.
A nation of whiners to busy pissing in the streets to work.
Sounds like Australia.
Hey, are you little pissants still afraid to walk in the dark.
We aren't here.
We carry guns!
Bwa hahahahaha
So you would much rather see your government involved in wars they will never will at what cost of life and to those of you that are not getting decent healthcare....I watched a documentary last night on where all the money in America is going and it showed how you no longer have a middle class that 10% of Americans have 90% of the wealth, how the poor are now so poor they have to stand in line for food bags....it was worth watching for those that believe in America all things are still possible that everyone can be rich if they work hard and are careful with their money...the truth is frightening how the lobbyist pay to implement bills that see the middle class losing their wealth to the rich who are making billions(litterally) and get to pay 15% tax while a fireman (you know the guys that run into the towers) pays double that all because around 200 filthy rich control your all your resources and have senators in their pockets....that is disgusting...that while you concentrate on the little pleasures and the dream that one day you too could be one of them is a lie they perpetrate to keep you distracted not seeing that your piece of the pie is being eroded by the dream that once helped you believe that you all had the chance to make it....I find that sad and frustrating that the corruption by those that work for you is dominating how you live or don't in most cases......

I can handle the truth what bugs you is that it is not your truth it is the real truth....from both sides that have caused me to come to my conclusion I wasn't brought up with a gun in my hand so that I became a one eyed bigot and I was from a family that needed to use guns earlier on, for a purpose....I had no brainwashing so unlike you so I am able to make an informed decission without any prior bias..

BULL! If you could 'handle the truth, then you wouldn't continue posting your complete BS here. The TRUTH is just this: MAN has the ABSOLUTE RIGHT to keep and bear arms for his SELF-DEFENSE against whatever threat, be it private thug, or a government thug.
YOU demand that EVERYONE COMPLETELY surrender to government, as though they were OWNED SLAVES.
YOU DEMAND that the rest of us become as the Jews of 1930's Germany, and march without protest, into the prison camps to be exterminated.
Why don't you just admit that you're nothing less than a paid shill who posts here on TOPIX?

He's not anti-gun. He is a racist. He only gets worked up if it's not a black person doing the killing. He doesn't like the "brothas" being at risk in dark allys beating unarmed victims.
