hmmmmmmm well we can start with Weapons Bans, then attacking a foreign country without congressional approval, over stepping his authority, not submitting a budget as required by law (yesterday was the deadline) and of course not securing our borders.

Weapons bans are fully within the constitution. we actually have many weapons bans now. you were talking about the US constitution, weren't you? sad that people who call themselves citizens don't even know their own constitution....

Rupert Murdoch's outlet: The New York Post. He is CEO of News Corp which owns Bullshyt Mountain News.

You've heard of Bullshyt Mountain News, haven't you LeJerkoff? They are the ones who told you Etchy was going to win Ohio, and that Eitchy was going to win Florida. They're even the ones who told you clownboys that Etchy was hoing to win 325 electoral votes.

Take Piyush's advice and stop being the Stupid Party. Speaking of which ....

He is convinced that IT should be easy, with the wind at his back.
They should read,'the Articles of the Confederation.' In those times, there were issues. And, an invented DECEPTION, wasn't enough.
The posse called it a 'bump in the road', and He repeated it.

But only true progressive logic, right? You know, we can spend our way out of debt. If we make 50 million more people buy health insurance, the insurance companies will give us a deal and everyones costs go down. If we up welfare payments so people don't have to work, we can reduce unemployment. If we ban a few 'assault guns', that make up less than 1% of the guns, the violence will stop? If you're talking that kind of progressive logic, you are probably right.
Complete twaddle, completely unrelated to my post. FWIW, I neither support Obamacare nor believe that an assault-weapons ban will solve our gun problem. Just in case you didn't know those were strawmen you were posting.

Pure B.S., as usual.
Why should anyone be forced to pay for paving someone's road to perdition?
It's not about people being permitted to have an abortion. It's about people being forced to pay for someone else to have an abortion.
Years ago, when abortions were illegal in this country, there were few unwanted kids. Could it be because Americans were more moral then? If so, how we're those morals instilled?
I find it odd that liberals are wont to preach inclusiveness and diversity except when discussing those who happen to have different opinions. Then, the name-calling and nasty innuendos start.
No one's being "forced to pay for someone else's abortion." Ever hear of the Hyde Amendment, dumbass?

Where's your proof that before legal abortion, there were 'few unwanted kids?' Seems pretty obviously wrong, in fact completely counter-intuitive.

And please, don't even start to blame "liberals" for "name-calling and nasty innuendoes." Just DON'T. Righties have such a huge lead in those categories that we could never catch up if we WANTED to....:)

Dishonest and ultra-biased, hypocrites like the "Professor" are commonplace here. His straw man filled arguments are so easy to batter and take apart. The reward is then watching him huff, puff, and demand you disprove his opinion.
Liars and cowards like yourself, who make false claims about myself and others to your fellow members of the right-wing echo chamber, are unforunately what's common.

Let me know when you'r ready to "batter and take apart" any argument I've made, punk. You've never done so once to date, so I guess it's no surprise that you lie, smear, and exaggerate while puffing up your own grand sense of self-importance.

yes, declaring war is the purview of congress. Obama did not declare war, he used the powers available to the president to use US troops when necessary.

why do you not have a 7th graders understanding of your own country?

what part of "a well regulated militia" do YOU not understand? if you can prove that banning citizens from having flame throwers and bazookas is unconstitutional, go ahead. Since you continually show that you do not have the foggiest idea of your own country, I will not hold my breath for that proof....

The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.
