First, nothing you say refuted ANYTHING he posted.
Second, the claim "..Obama has the Wahabist terrorist Muslim Brotherhood over to the White House for frequent visits" is a falsehood.
... ignorant dupes...

Just search "muslim brotherhood visits white house" and start reading, you goddam programmed liar.

You posted words. I never said these people didn't say what they said. I DID refute the erroneous logic you use, though. You assume that people like Obama and Hitler don't lie. Just for one of all-too-many cases of Obama lying, just look at what he lied about for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States.
Tyrants must lie. Without lies, nobody would make them popular enough to achieve power.

Now, repeat after me.
Saying is not the same as doing.
A person is only what they do.

Now, you have some truth to start with.

I stated the rich people are more apt to be conservative and GOP
I showed you numbers demonstrating that the Democrats hold a large edge in the bottom 1\3 a slight advantage in the middle and were trailing in the top 1\3. As late as 2004 the GOP's share of the electorate shrank, narrowing the gap at the top and broadening Dem. lead in bottom 1\3.
Ergo a randomly chosen Democrat is most likely to come from a lower in come group than a randomly chosen Republican.
Note I said there are a lot of rich people in congress and , by the ........
I did not identify party affiliation with the law makers only the voters.
Rather than quote something factual to counter the point, you attacked Democrats for being poorer which was my point...
Wow, and I thought Republicans were all pisspoor, uneducated country bumpkin "takers". Thanks for setting me straight, Bull.

"Democrats hold a large edge in the bottom 1\3 "

I suppose this is aspirational in your mind, non? It's easy to control a dependant population.

Routine visitors to the White House...

Individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) visited the White House at least 20 times starting in 2009. In 2008, CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist money laundering case in U.S. history....

http://www.investigativeproject.org/3777/a-re...

You might want to get an education and learn some facts.
Just search "muslim brotherhood visits white house" and start reading about all the Islamist terrorists routinely visiting the White House.

You should be asking yourself why is the White House open to the Islamist terrorists that are openly at war with the United States.

Perhaps because they are allies of Obama?
That would be the only thing that makes sense to me. What other reason is there?

The gun rights thing was new to me, just recently checked out the update of gun laws under the Nazis and was surprised to find how they'd LIBERALIZED gun ownership for everyone but a few minorities like Jews and Gypsies. Very interesting!
And as far as you 'star' pupils other delusion. The Democrats are political geniuses, the Democrats haven't had to be even smart nor adept. By playing footsie with THOSE guys the GOP has committed suicide.

Domestic abuse is not more prevalent in the United States than in other developed countries. But in the United States, the availability of firearms makes it far more lethal. When a gun is involved, the risk of a fatal outcome is 12 times greater than in domestic assaults involving other weapons or bodily force, research shows.

A 2002 study of 25 high-income countries, from the Harvard School of Public Health, found that the U.S. rate of female homicide was five times higher than that of all the other countries combined.

I would imagine those thousands killed by gun*uggers in this country would wish gun*uggers would keep their guns away from them so the guns were not "a threat" to them - the statistics show otherwise.

Even the US Justice Department's own National Institute of Justice finds that gun control laws & restrictions don't work.

You can find the memo here:

http://www.nraila.org/media/10883516/nij-gun-...

On the idea of “banning” so-called assault weapons:

"Twitter summary: Assault weapons are not a major contributor to gun crime. The existing stock of assault weapons is large, undercutting the effectiveness of bans with exemptions[...]

Guns are durable goods. The 1994 law exempted weapons manufactured before 1994. The exemption of pre-1994 models ensures that a large stock, estimated at 1.5 million, of existing weapons would persist. Prior to the 1994 ban, assault weapons were used in 2-8% of crimes. Therefore a complete elimination of assault weapons would not have a large impact on gun homicides.[...]"

On the prevalence of mass shootings (a key statistic used by gun control advocates such as Piers Morgan):

"Fatalities from mass shootings (those with 4 or more victims in a particular place and time) account on average for 35 fatalities per year. Policies that address the larger firearm homicide issue will have a far greater impact even if they do not address the particular issues of mass shootings."

And finally, on the so-called "assault weapon" bans:

"Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence."

Since even the government itself does not think gun control will mitigate gun violence or eliminate guns, what what else could they possibly hope to accomplish other than simply disarming the people to be able to change them from citizens into subjects?

More precisely, the US Progressives of the early-1900s came up with eugenics and Hitler & the Nazis said, "Hey, that's a great idea! We'll copy that!".

Eugenics, along with the concept of targeted propaganda, both brought to the world's attention by the Nazis and judged monstrous, were the brainchildren of the same demented Progressive mindset we see and hear every day from the Left and many posting here.

In a very real way, Progressivism supplied the Nazis and Hitler with many of their core policies, principles, tactics, & beliefs.

Progressivism is the Godfather of Nazism.
