Down Democrat !
An intelligent Democrat would teach the puppy not to jump on people because they care about others.
Those kinds of ideas never even occur to those who value people by the wealth and power they accumulate.

No. A democrat would blame the puppy's sire or bitch for its jumping on people. Then the democrat would seek legislation for funding a program to help the puppy overcome its issues brought on by its parents that made it a victim. Then this program would hire losts of useless government workers and ignore the puppy all together.
The puppy then turns to drugs and gun violence because its a victim of society.

An intelligent Democrat? Lmao! That's an Oxymoron!

The only Intelligent Democrats are the ones that don't believe the propaganda they preach, but simply know they will benefit from the rest of you dumb asses buying into it, and following along like zombies.

Yes, look at the 1860 Republican platform. http://cprr.org/Museum/Ephemera/Republican_Pl...
They pledge to not extend slavery. Do you know what that means? They pledge to disallow slavery to expand into new territories. The Democrats, particularly the Democrats of the South viewed slavery as a right.
Educate yourself.

The predatory gun industry is the only unregulated manufacturer of a consumer product that is specifically made to kill, with a level of secrecy that makes the tobacco industry look like a model of transparency. The real story behind the steady rise in gun violence in America, argues is the systematic increase in lethality of guns by manufacturers. Over the last two decades the gun industry has dramatically increased the killing power of its products; designed and distributed guns with more ammunition and greater conceal-ability; and aggressively sought to build a wider market by collaborating with the "gun-media" and by targeting women and minorities as vital new consumers.

Awww, poor, pathetic conservative murderer. You just can’t take it when somebody fires back. You’ve murdered about a million American citizens, over 100,000 Iraqis, etc. but OMG crying and complaining when somebody tells you off? You clearly just can’t stand it.
Now, here it comes, you, so arrogant and sanctimonious, coming up with one sick excuse after another, either about the numbers or the psychotic claims of your innocence -- that all you people do is just finance the murders, and vote for the leaders. And of course you’re just murdering people who deserve it because they‘re liberals, without any trial, of course, because they didn’t commit any crimes. They just happen to be in the way of conservative greed.
YOU are the haters because that’s what it takes to kill innocent people. I keep throwing it in your face, hoping people who CAN still be human beings will wise up.
As far as the gun issue, as usual, you skrrod that up too.
Thank you for proving my point. I rest my case.

Are you really going to go by this statement?

I dare say that there are NO legitimate manufacturers in the USA that are UNregulated.

How about regulated pharmacuetical manufacturers? They kill more people every year than guns do.
Yeah

So here we have the rightwingnuz hypocrites spouting off about “murder by drones”, the latest flavor of rightwing talking-points, but had no qualms about sending hundreds of thousands of US and allied soldiers to facing their deaths in the ME. Drones have killed hundreds of terrorist leaders and at the same time saved thousands of US lives. Drones, as well as other robotics, offer huge advantages regarding the effectiveness of our military and human rights. On the military effectiveness side of the ledger, the logic of developments in weaponry that increase one’s own lethality—allowing targeting at the highly individualized level—while protecting one’s forces, may not persuade a pacifist, but it will move commanders, who have missions to accomplish, and who have a fundamental obligation to their own troops not to expose them to undue risk. The US military is not going to take a hands-off approach to states like Libya, Pakistan and Yemen, where law enforcement is not a feasible option. Drone warfare permits a highly calibrated military response to situations in which the alternative may involve not lesser but far greater uses of military violence – but then, you already know that!!

People in the military have not been drafted in decades. They are there willingly. They know their job is to be put in harms way if the need arises.
US Citizens that are simply accused of being a terrorist being taken out by drones without trial by jury, is a completely different story. But then you liberals don't understand that concept. As highlighted by your lack of understanding the difference between conservatives supporting the death penalty for murderers but not supporting abortion.
