Subject: Re: Hint: Since the debate in the US centers around the assault rifle, why aren't they including in the debate hammers and guns??? Because they are all liars and morons. :)
(V): ". Guns are built for killing. Hammers and clubs may have other purposes." guns do kill WHEN FIRED BY HUMANS....but their purposes are varied. sharp shooting is an Olympic event,hunting,plinking,protection,the list goes on. a pistol makes a good hammer in a pinch.
Artful Dodger: I'm guessing more people are killed by cars than guns. a 70+ y/o man was beat to death here recently by a 33 y/o man. we going to outlaw fists too? its stupid. of course anyone with common sense knows its people who kill people in acts of violence. mark it up to Dr.Spock. let kids do whatever...dont bust their ass when their out of line. then when they grow up to think they can do whatever..they go to prison...or worse..flip out..get a gun..and take their frustrations out on innocent people.
Subject: Re: They are not legal for cops to use either.
Artful Dodger: "They need to be stoned for being false prophets!" I'm guessing they already are. Übergeek 바둑이 : " At the current rates of killing, gun violence in the USA causes about 900 dead people per month, while sectarian violence in Iraq caused about 600 to 1000 dead per month (as of 2008, these days it is lower). Americans don't see it, but more Americans are being killed every month in the USA than Iraqis or Afghans in their respective countries. Even Mexico and Colombia with the drug-driven violence do not have the same rate of killing." theres a substanstial population difference.
shaken hands and makin promises in the wake of Sandy...thousands still without power. dropped the ball that cost American lives...Bengazi wants to promote the spokesperson that touted it was due to the film..lol the guy who made the film..still in jail I believe.. and now the head cia official is caught with his pants down! what drama!! lol
Subject: Re: well at least until the republicans get off work! lol
The Col: you wouldnt listen if I told you. but in case you do... people are starving. no jobs..no unemployment..banks stealing homes by the thousands every day. food pantry's swamped with fat people..standing in line for their weekly hand-out. crime is out of control. best business going is the penal system. politicians write more stupid laws...more people going to prisons... food,insurance,housing,fuel,etc...all on the rise. these things have gotten WORSE not better,over the last 4 years. romney is not the answer...but a better choice than obama. Gary Johnson is really the best choice imo...but his stand on letting immigrants over-run us is just crazy.
I really dont think anyone has the answers...but big business funded dems and repubs....got to go!!!
Subject: Re: well at least until the republicans get off work! lol
(V): it was a joke. I'm none of the above. the independent party almost got my vote,but for immigration issues I disagree with. you nor the Col. really have no clue as to what is really happening in the U.S. Lamon hit the nail on the head...but like most sheep...you two follow the media to slaughter. it is a sad day in American history imo...the only upside will be the deletion of obamacare.
Iamon lyme: quick study... the look on Obama's face the last half of the debate was that of a student listening to his teacher. When Mitt said what he would do in the middle east really had Obamas attention. Obama knew he was out-classed.
The Col: I didnt see it that way. seemed to me mitt walked thru yomommas bs about the "lies" and has a great outlook on middle east strategy.. just getting rid of yommama care will be a big feather in OUR countries cap. not to mention small business reforms that will be a economic boost to OUR country.
(V): "You could, but then history becomes a rather fragmented oddity."
so history makes it ok for the current administration to ignore vital facts and allow the deaths of its fellow Americans? and because of history..its ok for the current administration to pass the blame on our civil liberties?
most of us have neanderthal genes...does that make it ok for your neighbor to drag your wife out of your house to his by the hair screaming and kicking?
(V): "any droughts or floods this year anyone? Food prices rising through grain and other items harvest being low? Allotments flooded, tomatoes not ripe?" weather is always an issue for farmers..they deal with most of it. what they cant deal with is the rising cost of fuel. we had our worst drought in 50 years here...but guess what...gardens didnt suffer much..corn fields did..but wine production will have a bonus year.
Subject: Re: By keeping responses down to only two words, you've insured their minds don't have time to wander before you've finished your message.
Artful Dodger: yomama tried and tried to make romney believe he was going to raise the deficit by 7 trillion with his tax cuts and the removal of certain deductions and tax loopholes. kinda funny really.
Iamon lyme: "It's been convenient to say in the absence of any evidence that something didn't happen or a place didn't exist, until that place or some recorded history is found. And then after evidence is found, ignoring it is what it is... willful ignorance."
but...where is this "evidence"? thats really the big issue. talking in circles..making jokes..changing the subject...still doesnt provide ACTUAL evidence. so please...just 1 FACT that Proves Jesus of Nazareth truley existed. I would like to see it,because I've spent many years off and on..(one whole year exclusively) trying to find just ONE fact. Can you provide this ONE fact,without belittling?
mckinley: its self explanatory.any educated person knows the meaning. it does seem rather odd, that 2..now 3 christians here on this board want to criticize and ridicule anyone that throws out another option or opinion. so much for "brotherly love." myself...I'll stick to the "harm ye none" philosophy.
Iamon lyme: you seem a bit perturbed. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing..just offering an observation. the 10 commandments are a tough act to follow,imo. bible thumping hypocrits are everywhere. I dont need to be a "god" to see this.
