Why do people in pro-union states like Ohio want to vote against their own best interests? Do you not realize how miserable your Rust Belt manufacturing region would be without collective bargaining rights?
Take a look at states like Oklahoma and our citizenry compared to the blue collar citizenry of say OH or MN. You all get to have union covered apprenticeships and medical benefits to keep your common citizenry in good shape with all their teeth. Our right to work states exploit their fellow statesmen and pay us just enough to purchase the fuel to get from home to work.
The Dems are looking out for the everyday people in this country and fighting hard to reconstruct our socety by reeling in jobs that were outsourced. 4.2 million jobs sent to China for exploitative cheap labor by cut-throat Neocons who falsely label themselves conservatives, and these criminals responsible for this still receive cheers from their GOP faithful.
Really, name some jobs the dems have reeled in, what a joke, they are still going overseas. When you go order anything or shop in the stores, you can rarely find anything made in the USA and when you do you pay much more for it. If you call enabling people to be dependent on the government for their survival then yes I guess the dems are looking out for everyday people, personally I call that crippling people from being independent and making it on their own. As long as you hand benefits to people they aren't even going to try look for a job, and in my opinion that is the worst thing you can do to any man. I think it's truly sad what our President is doing to our Country, and things aren't going to get better, they are just going to get worse. Wait til Obamacare takes full effect, then let me see how great you all think it's going to be. Your cost for health care is going to go sky high! And if it's such great plan why don't they all go on the same plan as he wants to give us?

<quoted text>But there is a difference between murder and an accident. Yes, we have restrictions and controls in most swimming locations, but to ignore children being murdered is to do those children a dishonor. They are not alive to cite their case so I feel a need to do something.
I still become physically sick when t recall those autopsy results, and can only imagine what the parents must imagine.
,
Again, you are not focusing on how many deaths of children there are, you are more focused on how they die. It seems to me that you are using children to promote your own personal agenda against assault weapons. If children are involved in an activity that results in multiple deaths, or they are murdered in multitudes, what difference does it make if they are preventable? Dead is dead.

I would further state that taking away assault weapons won't result in children not getting murdered while making it illegal for kids not to go swimming would.
