There was racist intent, hence the N-word. That's an added aspect that Bush didn't have to contend with.
Other than being called a chimp and shown that way in political cartoons.

There are many similarities between the two. For one, they both have huge protruding ears.

Right. Because 'chimp' a well-known racist smear against white people.

It is not impossible to address preventable death. We do it all the time. We fight cancer, AIDS, auto accidents, heart disease, and stroke. Why not death by gun? Why is that particular cause of death off limits for prevention?

And how many of those 32,000 gun deaths you keep touting are accidents, Dan. Let's compare apples to apples for a change. And with all the restrictions and rules to driving a car, vehicle accident death FAR EXCEED those from firearm accidents, don't they. In fact, how many firearm accidents are there every year, Dan. Things that make you go "hmmmmmm".

How many people own cars? How many cars on the road every day? How many people use their car every single day? How many hours a day do people drive?

More people are killed in auto accidents than by gun accidents because exponentially more people use cars exponentially more often than guns.

This is simple math.

But somehow it makes you go hmmmmmmm.

And that makes me go "hmmmmmmm."

LOL!

I drive my car for a total of approx. 1.25 hours a day, Dan (going to and from work). My gun is on my hip far longer than that. The question stands.

About 35% of Americans own guns. How many own cars?

I'll answer that for you - 95%. And 85% get to work by car.

The gun on your hip is the same as a car in the garage. If you're not handling it, you're not using it.

Why are there more car accidents than gun accidents? Because more people own them and they use them more.

Yes, I thought it was outrageous when people made death threats against Bush and I said so. I thought the movie depicting his assassination was stupid and offensive and I said so.
And attacks on this President based on his race most certainly do matter. Minimizing or dismissing them provides cover for racists and is as morally offensive as the racist attacks themselves.
Not every attack in this POTUS is racial. This particular incident you brought out was.

Good to see you took offense when it was. POTUS that I am sure you did not like.

Again, I've specifically said we are not talking about buying guns from a licensed dealer. You can buy a gun from a private citizen in Ohio without ID, right? But you can't vote in Ohio without showing ID.
----------
Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, to announce his or her full name and current address and provide proof of the voter's identity.
The forms of identification that may be used by a voter who appears at a polling place to vote on an Election Day include:
- A current and valid photo identification card issued by the State of Ohio or the United States government; or
- A military identification ("military ID"); or
- An original or copy of a current utility bill; or
- An original or copy of a current bank statement; or
- An original or copy of a current government check; or
- An original or copy of a current paycheck; or
- An original or copy of a current other government document, other than a voter registration acknowledgement notification mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address.

Under law, I cannot vote in Ohio. If I wanted to buy a firearm in Ohio I have to secure the transfer thru a FFL. I do not live in Ohio, I live in Illinois.

I cannot buy a firearm in Illinois from a private citizen with my ID or FOID. But I can vote without them.

Yes, Illinois is one of the 11 states not on my list of states where you can buy guns with no proof of ID.

Taking the current explanation for constitutes racism, ie. If you don't agree with the POTUS it is because he is black, then all the things non whites said if Bush would be racist. That is if you follow the logic of some talking heads on mnsnbc.

To the greater point. Racism is ignorance, regardless of who does it. Making a threat against the POTUS, in a racist way or not is stupid.

Every time my gun is on my hip it is "in use". Ever heard of a deterrent?

They can educate the youth on why criminal activities lead to poverty and short life spans.

Ex cons will have a hard time in some vocations because if their criminal past. Where I work they cannot. I work in hospitals, clinics, research facilities, government facilities and some industrial sites servicing radio frequency enclosures. You can understand that my vocation gas certain standards.

We must remember a simple truth, ex cons are a product of their choices, they are responsible for their position, not you, not me, but them.

There are jobs they can do, if they are truly motivated, they can create legal businesses.
