Washington DC, and the politicians of northern California should take the chair in the corner.
.......We are seeing more and more politicians betraying the people for their own gain. Not being anti-semetic, but I still haven't heard of a jew politician backing up the second amendment. As for the betrayal, Sen. Blumenthal from Ct. wrote a lot of Feinsteins anti-gun bill. From Connecticut, home of the Enfield Rifle, from Enfield ,Ct. Also the home of Sturm-Ruger, Charter Arms and Colt. It's become apparent why the politicians have bought off the parents of the slain children,(the constant anti-gun parade), but now I ask, how? How does one justify not asking for the true motive of such a crime? How does one find the strength to go on "tour"? How does one not cry?

Right as I type this there is a bad situation in Alabama. An armed man got on a school bus and killed the bus driver and kidnapped a 5 year old off the bus. He didn't know the boy, he just picked one of the children at random. He's holding the child in an underground bunker and for three days police have been unable to get into it without the boy being killed. Alabama is a gun state where guns are legal.
A few days ago a six year old girl was shot in New Mexico. Someone Began shooting at someone out on the street and a stray bullet went though her bedroom wall and hit her in bed. New Mexico is a gun state where guns are legal.
Violence is 'everywhere'. It's just worse in older larger cities. But killing is everywhere.
Don't let your hatred for your own President warp your mind. There's too much violence and it has to be stopped.
not on the level it is in Chicago and why I dont care for Chicago and all Obama did today is blame the surrounding area around Chicago for Chicago's gun problems and the surrounding area does not have the gun problems that Chicago has but Chicago problems of violence is spilling over into areas surrounding Chicago especially Northwest Indiana.

What's Causing These School Shootings - Guns or Psychiatric Drugs?

http://curtiscrx25.newsvine.com/_news/2012/12...

NEW YORK – From the moment news emerged Friday that a young man had carried out a horrific massacre of elementary-school children, politicians from local city halls to the White House have been restoking the age-old push for more gun control. While guns have been a common denominator in mass slayings at schools by teens, there’s another familiar element that seems increasingly to be minimized.

Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org , an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.

...... How many of you know that each family has just received a check for $40,000.00. And that is from just one fund. Was there any kind of outpouring like that for ANY of the other massacres? On channel 6 Ct. NBC last night.

No, you aren't being antisemitic. You just don't care for 'jews'.

Hey bigot: Norm Coleman, Rated A by the NRA, indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.

So you can't say you haven't heard of a pro-gun "jew" politician.

Protection begins with taking away the tiny-dicked toys from people like you- Americans recognize that assault weapons have no place in the a civil society.

Of course, only the NRA and their fellow travelers would put the blame on video games when they put the assault weapon in this killer's hands.

The Tea Party is not in control of Congress, the Republican Party is. I originally supported the concepts of the Tea Party. I will not support what the part has become. Your mistake is you believe anyone that isn’t a flaming liberal is a member of the Tea Party.
Those volunteers were a splinter group from Occupy. They were unlikely members of the Tea Party. Tossing terms around like teabagger erodes your credibility. You come of like a someone that didn’t succeed in life and became bitter for your own failings.
"The Tea Party is not in control of Congress, the Republican Party is".

That's all that is left, teabagger zealots.

If you disagree with them or Limbaughtomy, you'll be looking for a new job or committee assignment.

"Tossing terms around like teabagger erodes your credibility".

Didn't a lot of republicans mail teabags to certain members of governmeent?

Don't they adorn everything with teabags when demonstrating or attending their "meetings"?

The republicans are in charge in name only.

"You come of like a someone that didn’t succeed in life and became bitter for your own failings".

Bitter?

Teabaggers are the ones that are "bitter" about everything Obama has ever done.

Whining is more like it, from Rannity, Limbaughtomy and Beck.

Anyone who doesn't follow "lockstep" with these idiots are called communist. socialist and every name under the sun and now that Obama has been re elected, it's party before country.

Poor teabagger.

Even the current Sandy Aid Bill is loaded with pork. http://www.examiner.com/article/ted-cruz-70-o...
One of your own, Bloomberg was very critical of the original bill which wasn’t passed. http://politicker.com/2013/01/mayor-bloomberg...
One of the biggest supporters of the original bill, Chris Cristie, a Republican. He was sharply critical of fellow Republicans for not passing the original pork laden bill. Despite Mayor Bloomberg coming out with the statement “blame pork, not Republicans”.
You watch the talking heads comment on issues without delivering the critical details. Then you blame teabaggers. Reality check, the Tea Party has no real power. Your true hatred of the Tea Party comes from their attack on entitlement spending.
I absolutely agree with their founding principles. Unfortunately the Tea Party has been hijacked by a lot of extreme right wing zealots. The founding principles remain sound. Have you ever bothered to honestly research the Tea Party? Take a look, what’s to disagree with here? http://www.teapartypointers.com/fundamentals....
If teabaggers were so concerned about the "pork" in the bill, why didn't they identify the members who added the riders to the bills?

They could have publicly announced who attached these riders and they would have been stripped in a week.

Instead, they obstructed and whined.

So much for being "concerned".

"Citizens may choose to live in a free country or in a totalitarian, authoritarian state centrally controlled and regulated to dominate all aspects of life".

Unless it's somones bedroom or a vagina.

"High tax rates are another assault on our freedom because the more the government taxes and spends the more powerful it becomes. Although taxes are necessary, governments will spend every dollar they can tax, and will increase taxes rather than cut waste or increase efficiency".

I agree with this, somehow this "principle", seems teabaggers don't.

They NEVER mention that, instead they automatically go right for the cuts or privatization.

Schools and the military are prime examples.

"Promises have been made that cannot be fulfilled. Reform is needed to save the necessary social safety net while not destroying the economy".

See above.

What about the republican created, sponsored and signed "Patriot Act"?

<Crickets>

"The government is spending at an unsustainable rate. The longer we put off fiscal restraint, the worse we will suffer and larger the calamity will be".

No mention of this, until a democrat is in office and positively will not make cuts to the bloated, wasteful Military Industrial Complex or even try to streamline it to make it more cost effective.

Poor teabagger.
