Gun control / Re: Obama's town....
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:15:15 AM »
About 20 years ago, the city of Kennesaw, Georgia passed an ordinance that REQUIRED every household to have a gun. The crime rate dropped 89 percent and has remained steady.

Link?



Your misinformation appears to be from the mayer.  From scienceblogs:

Quit playing stupid. I expect that kind of behavior from Grasshopper, but you're better than that.

Here's your analogy:

Quote
If you tell the kid next door that you'll give him a dollar for pulling his little sister's braids - are or are you not the catalyst for the dirty deed?

You right there insinuated that Obama gave Qatar money to send arms to the Libya rebels.   Unless you didn't mean to imply any money was exchanged?

here's something else you said which is stupid:

Quote
the weapons now being transported out of Libya to Turkey

and this was stupid:

Quote
they refuse to acknowledge his complicity in the Benghazi incident

and this was stupid:

Quote
Would you be talking about the same rebels that Obama armed?

and this was beyond dumb (emphasis mine):

Quote
His illegal participation in overthrowing the Libyan leadership led to the destabilization of the region

that's a lot of stupid not to mention flat out wrong right here in one thread.

I guess it depends upon who you believe that maggot in the WH to be.  I believe that he's a Muslim.

You know rudy2d, just an fyi, you come off as class-less and racist.

hey PMF

here's a picture of Riyadh



here's a picture of Kansas




I've never been to either places but by the definition of civilized the countries you say are uncivilized look a lot more civilized than someplace like Kansas.

I'm just sayin..

Because Israel is virtually the most civilized nation in the Middle East.

Most civilized?    I would think you would have to travel around those countries to make that determination.    Have you been?

If only they were armed they could have prevented that incident.

Health Care Debate / Re: Re: Re: Whole Foods CEO: Obamacare is Fascism
« on: January 19, 2013, 05:28:16 PM »
Really?

I just went through an incident in which I racked up considerable medical expenses. The taxpayers didn't have to pay a dime for my care. I paid for it. The surgeon, the hospital, the radiologist, the anesthesiologist, the EMS on scene care and transport, the post op follow ups and physical therapy... It didn't cost the taxpayers one damned cent.

I paid for it all. What you want is to not have to pay for it all by forcing everyone to share the cost of YOUR medical care. YOU are looking for a free ride, not the indigents who end up in some ER, it is YOU and all your little yuppified friends who want to strip everyone else of their freedom to determine their own needs and to provide for those needs in a manner of their own choosing.

My medical treatment cost nobody but me a single cent. The next time you see a doctor and pass the cost off to everyone else, will you be able to say the same?

I've paid ~$200,000 in health care insurance in the last 20 years and have needed nothing but a check up which I do ever couple years.   

If you're bragging about not having insurance and paying out of pocket as you need it you're simply telling us you're not that bright, especially as you get older.   Another mishap, a heart condition or cancer and you're financially ruined.

You do understand that the first gun control laws in this country were introduced by Democrats to prevent Blacks from owning guns, don't you?

that makes sense and confirms what I said.   

Of course today's republicans are yesterdays democrats in the south and we all know that although some won't admit it.

Gun control / Re: Reagan on assault weapons
« on: January 18, 2013, 01:51:52 PM »
here's the context -

Plea From 3 Ex-Presidents

The letter from three former presidents to the House:

May 3, 1994

To Members of the U.S. House of Representatives:

We are writing to urge your support for a ban on the domestic manufacture of military-style assault weapons. This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety. Although assualt weapons account for less than 1% of the guns in circulation, they account for nearly 10% of the guns traced to crime.

Every major law enforcement organization in America and dozens of leading labor, medical, religious, civil rights and civic groups support such a ban. Most importantly, poll after poll shows that the American public overwhelmingly support a ban on assault weapons. A 1993 CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll found that 77% of Americans support a ban on the manufacture, sale, and possession of semi-automatic assault guns, such as the AK-47.

The 1989 import ban resulted in an impressive 40% drop in imported assault weapons traced to crime between 1989 and 1991, but the killing continues. Last year, a killer armed with two TEC9s killed eight people at a San Francisco law firm and wounded several others. During the past five years, more than 40 law enforcement officers have been killed or wounded in the line of duty by an assault weapon.

While we recognize that assault weapon legislation will not stop all assault weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals. We urge you to listen to the American public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of these weapons.

Sincerely,

Gerald R. Ford

Jimmy Carter

Ronald Reagan

Gun control / Re: HOW DARE THEY!

NO TEACHER should be armed. NONE. ZERO. It's not their job. Teachers (prior to Sandy Hook) were already being treated like shit by the right wing. Now suddenly "serve and protect with firearms" is being included in their job description for which they were already considered paid too much and chastized for peformance? I'd say don't be ridiculous, but I'm not sure you're capable at this point.

Not to mention it quite obviously raises the risk of gun accidents, gun stolen, gun lost, etc, etc in the classroom.

Teachers armed in the class would present an added risk and threat to the Obama kids.    Same reason its not a good idea generally.    Trained LE at the school: good idea (thanks gun nuts for necessitating this cost to society).     Teachers packing heat in class: moronic (godwulf's idea)

Here's some REAL world Peps: Not ONE of the recent mass shootings would have been prevented by Obama's laundry list of EOs. Yesterday.

That's right.. there's a limit to what the president can do with EO.   But several of them address the mental health issues and may lead to better controls around preventing mentally instable people from obtaining weapons.     I'll list them:

Quote
Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

You're making an argument that stronger measures are necessary and that will require legislation - and I agree with you.
