""Please, oh please don't take my guns away!! Please, oh please, don't arrest me and throw me in with all those big, black men!!""

I am not alone honey, 3 in 10 Americans personally own a gun.

So come liberals for our guns we are waiting and loaded!!!

http://www.gallup.com/poll/20098/Gun-Ownershi...

How many Americans personally own guns, and what do they use them for? A recent Gallup Poll* shows that 3 in 10 Americans personally own a gun; most gun owners say they use their guns to protect themselves against crime, for hunting, and for target shooting. Gun ownership varies by different groups in the country, with men more likely to be gun owners than women, Southerners and Midwesterners more likely than Easterners or Westerners, Republicans more so than Democrats, and older rather than younger Americans.

Gun Advocates Warn That New Safety Measures Could Foment ‘The Next American Revolution’

....a small group of Black Panther Party members, led by Bobby Seale, designated chairman of the Party, marched into the California legislature, in May 1967, fully armed. Defined as protest against a pending gun­control bill (which became the Mulford Act) aimed at the Party with the position that blacks had a Constitutional right to bear arms, the Party's message that day became a clarion call to young blacks.

<quoted text>CRA regulations were rewritten several times making denying loans by banks to minorities a lot more complicated and intimidating.

Under the CRA, banks had to convince a set of bureaucracies that they were not engaging in discrimination, a charge that the act encouraged any CRA-recognized community group to bring forward. Otherwise, any merger or expansion the banks attempted would likely be denied.

The problem they faced under the government's CRA regulations was what counted as discrimination.

It was easier to just give out bad loans.

This is how it went, the dems tried to force the banks to make bad loans they would never be repaid for, the banks said screw you it ain't happening. The dems/feds stepped in and said, don't worry, we'll allow you to dump them off on someone else and if they go bad the taxpayers will be stuck with them.
And that's exactly how it happened, there's no other possible explanation of why people with money would make bad loans.
Government interference.
ROTFLMAO! Damn! At least you're direct with your lies on this point!

I'd like to applaud your efforts, but I'm laughing too hard!

Oh, for goodness sakes. In a chat room on the internet I can make you fight with each other. What difference does it make to me whether you kill and eat your own? I'm a New Englander. I'm not stupid like you. Did you imagine I would stand out on the village green and allow you to show me how manly or womanly you think you are? Hahahahahahaha... sure, that's how this will go down. You're ready for a civil war and I'll fix it so you'll shoot each other. Don't you see? You're not as smart as I am. I can easily arrange it so you'll shoot each other. Why do you persist?

I'm assuming you don't understand the term: intellectual elite. Eat your hearts out, Christians. You may yet have your "civil war."
But you will discover it will be decidedly un-civil. For instance, I won't hunt you, I'll hunt your children. I'm a very good hunter. Be sure that's what you want. I suspect you don't believe how committed I am? A serious mistake. While you're out manning the battlements I will kill and rape your children. Have a nice day. Wherever you think I'll be, I'll be somewhere else. Duh. Don't you fools know anything?

I guess you don't get it? It doesn't really matter what you "think." You're stupid. What more is there to say? You're Americans; you believe God created the universe in six days; and you apparently believe that this ridiculous belief system entitles you to some sort of gentile treatment from the likes of me. How charming! I wouldn't bet on it though. No, I certainly wouldn't. ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE! Don't know what that means? Ok, you'll find out.

All right Carol, so how specifically did they profit and what's your source?

VOTE OUT THESE OUTLAWS wrote:
Second, Obama and Holder probably would not have believed that increased violence in Mexico could lead to tougher regulation of guns in the U.S. Americans simply don’t care enough about Mexico to alter domestic policy based on what occurs there, especially when it comes to an issue as passionately and endlessly argued as gun control. Americans view violence in Mexico the way they viewed violence in Colombia – unfortunate, typical, and not our problem at any fundamental level.
It was always possible that a few Americans, especially some involved in law enforcement, would be killed with guns that were part of Fast and Furious. But in this event, the probable consequence is what we have witnessed – major embarrassment for the administration, not an effective vehicle for advocating more gun control. On balance, it seems unlikely that the administration would come up with a program this risky in the pie-in-the-sky hope of incresing gun control.
Why, then, was the program implemented? As noted, considerable frustration existed over attempts to deal with gun running through interdiction at the point of sale because this form of enforcement resulted in the apprehension of only the small fry. Those who came up with Fast and Furious probably hoped that if guns followed their natural course into Mexico, they would lead to much more important players. Wire taps and other surveillance of Mexican cartel bosses would assist in nailing these players, or so the thinking went.
It was a very bad idea, poorly executed. But, as conservatives should understand better than most, the government frequently implements very bad ideas and does so incompetently. In any case, trying to apprehend cartel bosses through Fast and Furious strikes me as less foolish than intentionally increasing shootings in Mexico to enhance the cause of gun control in the U.S.
This strikes me as largely correct. If this was a conspiracy theory, it was an incredibly poorly designed one from Day One and it depended on Americans giving much of a crap about Mexicans killing Mexicans, which honestly doesn’t seem to be very likely. More importantly, though, and as I argued myself last week, it is far more plausible to believe that what happened in Fast & Furious operation was the result of a group of people with a bad idea who put together a bad plan that was badly executed. You don’t need to look very far to find examples of other badly executed government operations than that it was part of some nefarious political conspiracy. Indeed, the extent to which this seems to occur on a regular basis, and to which the details of said operations inevitably leak out at some point, makes it hard to believe that a true nefarious conspiracy could ever really be executed by American political officials. Watergate was arguably such a conspiracy, but it was so incompetently handled that its main even was referred to, quite correctly, as a “third-rate burglary.” The remarkable thing about conspiracy theorists, most of whom tend to be very anti-government, is that they seem to ascribe far more competence and ability to keep a secret to government officials than available evidence would suggested is warranted
Thank you for all this information!

Let's take America back peacefully and intellectually. Beat them at their own game.
