If an assault weapons ban can't stop school shooters, wha...

Who gives a flying flip what weapon is used in any shooting? The fact remains the weapon cannot use itself. A gun won't shoot by itself, a knife can't stab by itself and Lucille wouldn't have killed Glen and Aberham if Negan didn't swing it. We need to stop blaming the object and do something about the mind behind it.  (Wednesday Mar 28 | post #545)

Are we looking in the right direction on gun control?

During this whole gun control debate, I hear a lot about banning whole categories of firearms but nothing about looking into the root causes of the recent school shootings. I guess its human nature to take the easy route and just ban the offending weapons in stead of looking into why a shooter did what they did. Why do we blame an inanimate object for death in stead of the evil heart and evil mind that desires to cause death? I own a .22 target rifle, I have never had my rifle load itself, chamber a round by itself, or pull its own trigger, is my rifle in any way responsible for the recent violence?  (Wednesday Mar 28 | post #1)

If an assault weapons ban can't stop school shooters, wha...

Everyone keeps blaming the damn guns, and their legal availability. Who is looking at the people who are doing the shooting? Who is looking at what made them do what they did? Most student school shooters were found to be bullied, ostracized, cast out, made fun of, and shoved to the fringes of the school just because they were different. This has a profound effect on kids who are of normal temperament, Imagine what it can do to a kid who suffers from even just a bad case of puberty let alone any known or unknown mental disorder they may have. The gun is simply a tool, the problem is society and the incredible insensitivity and meanness of teens today.  (Mar 8, 2018 | post #237)

Voter ID Laws Could Disenfranchise 1 Million Young Minori...

I do not understand why showing ID to vote is a bad thing. I live in the Chicago Area where the voter motto is vote early and vote often. I found out this past election that when my wife went to our polling place, someone had already cast a vote in her name. The state board of elections also had not removed my Mother's name from the registered voter list even though she passed 10 years ago. (I bought her house from the estate) You need an ID to do most anything today. I took my son to the bank where his paycheck is drawn off of, and they demanded 2 forms of ID to cash it. If a bank wants ID to cash a check, why is it a big deal to prove who you are to cast a vote?  (Jan 23, 2018 | post #30)

How t-RUMP is "Making China Great Again"

If you have read my posts, you will read that I am ambivalent about both Trump and Obama. I neither support them outright nor condemn them. I merely point out that the MSM has, for their own reasons, abandon even the appearance of being non bias in their reporting. I never said that "Fast and Furious" was never investigated, just that the media coverage for the most part gave the Obama Administration a pass even after one (or more) border agents were killed by guns supplied to the druggies by the Administration (through whatever agencies). Do I care that Obama never wore a flag pin? No. Do I care that he didnt salute the Marine Guards? No, the President is the commander in chief the choice to salute is his, however the President is a civilian, and civilians dont salute and Military members are prohibited from saluting in civilian clothing. You cannot deny there are more Left leaning journalists and pundits then there are for the right, and their natural information filters do put a left leaning spin on their stories. The same holds true with the journalists and pundits from the Right. The entire MSM has lost its sense of neutrality over the past 30 years or so. Trump has not provided his tax returns, and its no big deal to me because there is no law compelling him to do so and I really dont care about ANYONE'S tax return . Russian meddling in the election is troubling, but what do you expect from a country run by a former KGB/FSB heavy hitter. I do have more, but as I am currently at work, with my lunch break just about over, I do need to get back to my job. I will end this by saying I am a little disappointed in you. Nowhere have I called you names or personally made comments about you, yet you resort to calling me a "Putz". I expected more from such an obviously enlightened individual. Just so you know, I'm not crying, I actually pity you.  (Jan 18, 2018 | post #37)

Global warming 'undeniable,' scientists say

I think it can be measured to some extent. The difficulty being that there is a difference between the levels of the Pacific and Antlantic oceans that was at least confirmed when the Panama canal was built. Plus both oceans experience different tidal cycles. The better question to ask is what land masses have been lost or reduced by any change in sea level. Again a difficult question to answer, but not so difficult as trying to proclaim a mean worldwide sea level when the level is not constant throughout the world.  (Dec 20, 2017 | post #41677)

What if Moore is innocent?

What would happen in the press if GOP Candidate Moore is actually totally innocent of the accusations against him? Will there be an apology? I personally believe in innocence until proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Did Moore admit to anything like Frankin did? Has Moore had a trial where his guilt was definitely established?  (Dec 11, 2017 | post #1)

Global warming 'undeniable,' scientists say

Lets be honest here. Global Warming has been occurring since the end of the last Ice Age. That ice age peaked about 21000 years ago and ended around 11,500 years ago according to the BBC. Google it if you want. Global temps have been rising for all this time, and only we humans know what temperature the Earth is supposed to be? Get Real! Now, do we humans have an effect, definitely, but not nearly as much as the media would have you believe. A medium sized volcano can spew more CO2 into the air than humans have since the start of the industrial revolution. Seriously, think about it.  (Dec 11, 2017 | post #41625)

Global warming 'undeniable,' scientists say

Just a couple questions. First, how old is the Earth? That depends on your views but it is agreed by most that the earth is millions and millions of years old. Second. How long have we been keeping accurate weather records? Conservatively I'll over estimate say 2-300 years. My point in those is to ask how the hell can we determine what the perfect temperature for a planet thats millions of years old from just 200-300 years of climate data? The temperature of Earth can vary greatly depending upon a lot of totally NATURAL factors, including the procession of the Earths axle tilt, Sunspot activity, and Volcanic activity just to name a few. To say that we are too warm now, with such a small sample size is irresponsible. I just read a story that Mars is warming up from an ice age. As far as we know there are no humans on Mars. Are we responsible for the global warming on Mars too?  (Dec 11, 2017 | post #41620)

How much stricter can you get? How about instead of new laws, ENFORCE THE ONES WE HAVE.  (Nov 15, 2017 | post #65)

How t-RUMP is "Making China Great Again"

So you are saying Trump himself is responsible for increased bias in the media, starting during Bill Clinton's presidency and coming to a head during this last election? You are sadly laughable. The left leaning of the main stream media has been out on display for over 30 years and has just recently been so outrageous that its no longer credibly able to be denied. As for Trump himself, yes he is not the best spoken, but the media has taken over a year of swipes at him and failed. You know the definition of insanity? Trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results. The MSM is insane. I am afraid that its too late for the media to shape up. We need a revamp of journalism in general. The media should be a witness for the people, reporting on just what happened, and leave their opinion on why it happened and why its good or bad to the public to decide. Nice if we can get it but bloody unlikely. I did not like Clinton and his coverage even through the sex scandals, including accusations of UNWANTED SEXUAL ADVANCES (AKA sexual assault, the same thing a senate candidate is accused of and may have to drop out of the election) was he was falsely accused . I was ambivalent on W, and his coverage was W is a moron, an idiot, and still drunk or high. Almost all negative. Obama definitely got a pass during his presidency. What happened to Fast and Furious? Case in point.  (Nov 15, 2017 | post #14)

This is too funny. Trump obviously caused Global Warming on election night. When he won, every Liberal Snowflake in America melted into a puddle of tears. Now for the one year anniversary, they plan on going outside and screaming impotently to the Heavens. Got to love it.  (Nov 15, 2017 | post #8)
