<quoted text> In 1980, Reagan was the superior candidate in hard times. In 2012, Romney was the superior candidate in harder times. We are now screwed. An inflexible inner city marxist that has mastered the art of pitting one person against another has the reigns. As times get wors eand worse in real terms, wait until it spreads to the things you like. And it has already but you keep sweeping the dirt under the rug for selfish reasons.
It took Hitler four years also to go from prison to leader.

Not only have the NRA's tactics cowed politicians and beaten back substantive national gun-control efforts, they've actually support moves to make guns easier to get. Shameless GOPers in Washington have signed on to Kentucky’s egomaniacal Rand Paul's call to filibuster any gun-control measure. Even though more than 3,000 Americans have died by gun violence since the 20 children murdered at Sandy Hook, the NRA has somehow managed to turn it into a mockery – the victims' families and gun-control advocates have lost. Forget any assault weapons ban — or any other serious gun regulation for that matter!
Why would I want to ban guns, I like guns, I'm an avid target shooter. I want to register guns, just like we register automobiles, now why would anyone object to that since it would take most guns out of the criminal’s hands? The current system prevented 1.7 million gun purchases in the past ten years, that’s a lot of guns. Those rejected buyers had plenty other options because many gun sales don't require a background check. Licensed gun dealers already have to keep records of their gun sales when they conduct a background check, which makes the opposition to the for a registry particularly absurd. As the law stands now the police are not allowed to create a database of guns using data from these records. For the sake of future gun victims, lawmakers should ignore the intense lobbying by the NRA thugs and pass a background-check bill with a very strong requirement for keeping records.

<quoted text>I suppose all the pubs closing and the cod is scarce is also her fault. I should have known it was mooches that were whining due to the choices they made in life, and blaming others.
Well she was the British PM who made an arse of everything she touched including shitting on miners by diddling them out of a job and onto the dole,privatising any commodity in sight, she as a usual propped up the rich, gave them Generous tax breaks, snatched the milk from the bairns, sent soldiers to unecessary deaths.

...So it's only fair she should have had to face the music, but she got off scot free didn't she?...and yet you expect others to applaud her for that?

She as PM of this country took these awful decisions which ruined countless lives, many folk have a right to blame her....and it's not like the public had any say matters.

Thatcher squandered North Sea oil revenues , saw off the demise of the steel and coal industries and created mass poverty because of her actions.

I would say many have a right to blame her for that, she took these decisions and knew the consequences, as well as let schools and hospitals rot under her tenure.

For ruining so many lives I would say Thatcher got off extremely lightly.

It should have only taken 4 years for Reagan and Bush, to go from "leaders" to prison, instead no information voters re elected them.

Sorry Le DimBulb, even if he was, he is still not rewriting or changing Mien Kampf.

Does not qualify as revisionist.

Teabaggers trying to "revise" Reagan, Bachmann and Palin version of "history" and books, does.

Poor teabagger.
