Now you're trying to deflect and distract, using emotional prods like ad-hominems.

If those are the kinds of tactics one finds themselves employing to defend one's actions and/or statements, maybe one would be wise to re-examine the basis of one's opinions and ideology?

Just sayin'

Maybe you're just a different sort of person, but I'd much rather have a solid, logical, and historically & factually consistent basis for my opinions and ideology.

It makes one's positions and opinions so much easier to explain & defend, and doesn't require the demonization of anyone or any class of people, nor does it require engaging in intellectually-dishonest debate tactics in order to avoid dealing with weaknesses in your personal beliefs, ideology, and arguments.

Trying to maintain a fictional reality in the face of the real world is way too much work for me, but apparently for some it's become a way of life they will staunchly defend. Besides, I don't have room in my life to harbor all that negativity, vitriol, and hatred for anybody that disagrees with me, as so many on the Left seem to fall victim to.

Such people make me more sad for them than angry at them. It's just not healthy either physically or emotionally to harbor that much negativity and hatred. And, when was the last time you heard of a society whose political ideology was hate-based turning out well?

Just seen that Piers Morgan said that he would leave the U.S. if the second amendment wasn't repealed.

My question is, why wait? Leave now and do us all a favor.

Actually, her tragic story was front-page. Where is the far right media? Oh, of course - trying to exploit her death.

Well, except for the mainstream national news. It was reported by local stations.
I'm shocked the MSM didn't report anything at all on this.
Well, no I'm not shocked. At all. I'd have been more shocked if they HAD reported this and did investigate and report like news services are supposed to do. We have State-run propaganda channels, not journalism.
Except for the fact that you're lying:

Thats right. They will now win most of the battles. As they have been but crying while they do. Frankly there is good in movement, but insanity always takes over to ruin them. Anyway, they will lose the war. Its based on a false currency and not foundation of what got people from the beginning of history back then, up to now. You have elitist people promoting divisiveness and calling it equality and then forcing people to deal with the consequences. If they stray from what they enact as laws enforced with teeth, personal destruction occurs. The end result is the destruction of families. Half the children in single parent situations. Respect for anything now at the gutter level. And so much more. This is smoothed over as only people who have done no wrong and continue to try to live by ways of the past, are scrutinized and blamed for the mass failures of progressive politics. For it is really regressive with the promotion of groups over the promotion of who is the best. The answer is to make sure the best of any group is not denied. But then make sure the intellectual drop offs are not put ahead of the best of any other group. And of course, treat each other nice unless the person is terrible. No matter how much it hurts.

Then she has the gall to say what does it matter. Should should have said what does it matter we lied to the American people for two weeks because it was before the election. Romney should have took it to them in the 3rd debate

Out of context, of course. She merely indicated, pointing out the tragedy of 4 dead Americans,'what does it matter' if they were killed by an organized terrorist conspiracy, a mob committing what Mr. Obama called "an act of terror," or criminals in the street? They're dead in any case.

Romney didn't even want to be your candidate, and really, who can blame him?:)

The term "Assault Weapon" (with a Little transformation in it's appearance) was conjured up by factions in the Liberal media to give impetus to their argument for banning guns. Furthermore, heavy mascara around the eyes, doesn't make one a hooker either. The military uses nomenclatures such as, M-16's, M-60's and M1A2 Carbines, etc., which are true assault weapons by definition.

Why did Obama tell the lie for weeks and then have the ambassador who knew nothing about the events be the front man to tell the lie on all the Sunday talk shows. Obama had said Al Quida was destroyed. I mean the attack was on 9/11
