I think that everyone will agree, your posts are the most ignorant
illogical, inane, non-related posts. Go back to Obamaville and smoke your joint, count your money, all of the important things in your life in Disneyland that liberals live in

OBAMA started his term looking for a reason to repeal the 2nd amendment....: Then Newtown happens and the 2nd amendment should be repealed or altered and average law abiding citizens are turned into criminals.
How about this...In Newtown, 19 of 20 children killed were white. In Chicago, the children who are gunned down are mostly black....Not so funny thing is that the media silent about Chicago violence...... Are they racist?
I think it's a travesty that the governing class of this country will not speak about the truth of what liberal and progressive policies have done to America.... Case in point CHICAGO... toughest gun laws in the USA !!
Chicago: 62 Children murdered and 446 school age children shot last year with strongest gun laws in country – And the media is silent again I ask WHY?
Maybe this will offer some explanation of the reason:
By Clash Daily / 19 December 2012 /
The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light?
why isn’t this news worthy?
The leadership in Illinois
President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25%- highest in country.
A culture of corruption that would make a Louisiana politician blush with envy.
We all want to have live in and raise our family in a safe and nurturing environment, but where are these to be found? Recently CQ- Press released their annual survey of the safest and most dangerous states. There were some surprises on the list, in both categories. City-Data.com also released their safest cities in the US and it is interesting to match up the city listings with the state listings. For instance, Massachusetts had the most cities in the safest top 20 with 8, but did not rank in the top ten safest states. New York posted 6 of the top 20 safest cities but it too missed the top ten in safest states. Pennsylvania was the only other state with multiple safe cities (2) and they too missed the top ten.
For the most part the safest states where grouped in the Northeast and the Midwest. In overall crime rates based on per capita information, the safest states in which to live are;
1. New Hampshire 2. Maine 3. North Dakota 4. Vermont 5. South Dakota 6. Wyoming 7. Montana 8.Iowa 9. Idaho 10. Wisconsin
NY is #50. Too bad mr Cuomo, you can't become #57 as only President Obama thinks there are 57 states.
The most dangerous state to live in based on crime per capita is Nevada
Currently the FBI stats show we are at a 37 low for violent crimes and at a 45 year low for homicides while the ATF and the NSSF data indicate that the US is at an all time high for gun ownership.
Even the FBI concludes more guns safer state.

Louisiana State Senator Switches Party, First Black Republican Since Reconstruction
by Lee Stranahan 1 Jun 2013
On Friday, Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory switched his party affiliation from the Democrat to the Republican party, becoming the first black Republican in the Louisiana legislature since Reconstruction. "I am as of this day joining Frederick Douglass as a Republican," he said.
Democrats in Lousiana are not happy:
State Democratic Party executive director Stephen Handwerk called the party switch “a craven display of political opportunism.”
Handwerk called on Guillory to resign his senate seat “since he has chosen to abandon the Democratic Party values that the voters elected him to represent.”
In his speech at the @Large Conference in Baton Rouge, Guillory repeatedly referred to the Democrats as 'the party of disappointment." He brought up his growing disgust with Democrats over issues like abortion, Benghazi, and immigration.
He accused Democrats of advocating policies that encourage a high teen birthrate, a high unemployment rate, and a high incarceration rate in the black community. He told the audience of black conservatives and their supporters that black Americans need to lead "by not putting all our eggs into one basket."
Guillory, a practicing attorney, was known as a conservative Democrat and had been wooed by the Republican party for months.
(just the beginning of the awakening for many

Buffett: Scrap Obamacare and Start All Over
By Money Morning Staff Reports Updated 11:08am EDT 10/01/2013
When asked, "Are you in favor of scrapping [Obamacare] and going back to start over?", famed investor Warren Buffett said on CNBC March 1, 2010, "I would be — if I were President Obama.”
Buffett insisted that without changes to America's health system average citizens will suffer.
"We have a health system that, in terms of costs, is really out of control," he added. "And if you take this line and you project what has been happening into the future, we will get less and less competitive. So we need something else."
Three debate-ridden years later, millions of Americans still agree.
But now that the exchanges are open, Obamacare has finally kicked off.
The government program, which some economists call the biggest tax increase ever in the United States, is also one of the most hated bills in history.
Ask millions of Americans what they think about the new law, and chances are they're ready to pop a jugular.
Critics heavily oppose the mandate requiring them to purchase health insurance. They're also furious at all the new taxes, fees, and higher premiums they'll be stuck paying, thanks to Obamacare.
Yet, while millions of Americans loathe every facet of The Affordable Care Act, as it's officially titled, another group of Americans see it as a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to get rich: Investors.
Obamacare may cost Americans 25% of their paycheck or more on January 1st. Are you at risk? Find out here.
According to Wall Street expert and Money Map Press Chief Investment Strategist, Keith Fitz-Gerald, Obamacare will create unheard of riches for investors who tap into the right companies.
"Obamacare is one of the single biggest wealth creation opportunities to hit the markets in decades," says Fitz-Gerald. "That's because huge amounts of money - trillions - will be spent as Obamacare gets rolling."
"And trillions more will be reallocated," he adds.
Not all companies will benefit - but a select few are primed for higher returns on a scale that was simply unimaginable before this legislation was passed.
These companies, and their investors, are set to make a fortune in the next several months - and years - as the full Obamacare plan gets underway.
Fitz-Gerald says main street investors will have a chance to reap big paydays - provided they know which sectors stand to benefit most.
Publisher's Note: Fitz-Gerald reveals the two sections of Obamacare that will create a new generation of millionaires.
With the implementation of Obamacare quickly approaching, Americans are asking what they can do to prepare for all the new costs and rules.
One expert, Betsy McCaughey, former Lieutenant Governor of New York and constitutional scholar with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, recently wrote a best-selling book showing Americans how they can survive Obamacare.
McCaughey is one of the only people in the country -- including members of Congress - who has actually read the entire 2,572 page law.
Her book, titled Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for Surviving the New Health Care Law breaks down the complicated bill into 168 pages of actionable advice.
(And just about every congressman and Senator has not read the Obama-care law. Nancy Pewlousy told House reps " you have to vote for it inorder to know what is in it" anyone want to buy gold in a bag and not open the bag until you get home?)
