oh i believe government lies.. im just more concerned with different lies that lead to millions of deaths
uss maine, gulf of tonkin, weapons of mass destruction, etc
and red panic is over bro .. returning tax rates to clinton-era levels is not "socialism"
How does a video from December 15th invalidate the other hundreds of conflicting reports from that same week?
This isn't a new NBC report.
This was one of the dozens of conflicting reports immediately after the shooting.
Just because some stupid blog posted it on Jan. 15th, it doesn't mean that its a new report. Cmon Man.

Well Said JC
Sounds like you are describing health care in Switzerland.
As far as gun/crime levels, I'd be more quick to point to Switzerland's cultural ethos of neutrality, not fighting, avoiding violence at all costs etc.
As a society, they don't believe in solving problems via guns.
USA obviously is a whole different animal; guns and violence is a large part of who we are as a people
And this is where I (and I assume alot of people like me get bothered) --
We dont want to take anyone's guns. I know many liberals who hunt and who have CWPs etc
What we do want is to make our society safer for kids and the thousands upon thousands of innocent victims senselessly killed by with guns every year
And the answer isnt as simple as just making sure everyone has more guns
Columbine had an armed school guard who got in a firefight with those 2 whackjobs before they killed all those kids ..
We need more focus on mental health and whatever specific gun policies that can better balance 2nd Am rights with public safety interests
We limit speech in many, many ways in this country for the greater good of the public.
There is no reason to not be able to limit the 2nd Am likewise
Americans will still be more than able to protect themselves in their homes and beyond
That is never going to change.
But its not okay to think the status quo on gun violence in this country is acceptable in my book
dont get caught up in the semantics of the word "deserve"
i strongly agree that when people stop working for things and start to expect handouts its a very bad thing
(like dangerous to the core of the country - economically and morally)
and that policies should be adjusted accordingly
that said; for us liberals, those are important values that our society should strive for
I heard it was a white Hispanic with an assault riffle.

says the guy who had his eyes closed when w. bush tanked the economy, unpaid wars, unpaid tax cuts for the wealthy, big govt expansion in medicare part b, destroyed the surplus, skyrocketed the debt, and let wall street run amok, and wiped out civil liberties for american citizens
What you gotta say about all the spending Obama has done and continues to do? Your #1 pal has spent more than all of the other presidents. Don't worry, this country will be so far in the tank when Obama is done with it.
Then, I will just look back and laugh

you gotta spend money to make money
exigencies of the situation he inherited required drastic measures
economy is a massive ship; doesn't turn around overnight; was crashing straight to the bottom when obama stepped in
economic numbers (unemployment, private sector job growth, etc) are all trending in the right direction now
time will tell
So much in this
Exactly.....a concept that Obama or Washington in general doesn't understand.
For those keeping score at home 2007 the government took in the highest amount of tax revenue ever. In both real dollars and adjusted for inflation.
When did I say I favored President Bush? Since you wanna play that way how about Obama bashing Bush for wanting to raise the debit ceiling when he was president, and now that Obama is president he is all about raising the the debit ceiling. I favor no party only the right guy for the job which sad to say is not what we have now.
Hate to tell you but unemployment is at an all time high in West Virginia since Obama has cut road funding in the state an shut down several coal mines.
You keep saying that Bush tanked the economy but who created the housing bubble that burst and was at the center of the economy tanking? I'll give you a hint, he also told Yemen that the US didnt want Bin Ladin, had an affair in the Oval Office, lied under oath, was impeached, yet is still a Democrat hero.
I'm not taking up for Bush cuz I wasn't a fan of his but to continually repeat stuff you hear without facts just makes you look dumb.
I could argue that Clinton was more responsible for the economy and 9/11 than Bush was even though I blame both and Obama.
then how do private-equity firms exist?
having debt on the books is critical to running a high-powered corporation or country
obviously, having too much can be catastrophic
but it aint black and white
i dont know particulars of west virginia
other than coal is an industry of the past
and that if anyone is going to pay for building roads these days; it'd be democrats
(or hypocritical republicans)
clinton and dems were complicit in deregulating wall street; but bush and repubs kicked that mess into overdrive
hey how about yall good folks hit me up with some up votes
its 1 against the crowd and im trying to debate in good faith here
(well maybe late last nite i was being a bit much) (but still, im trying here)
still; downvoting everything i say is a bit much
For you to say the 2nd amendment is limited shows me you don't know what your talking about when it comes to gun laws already in place.
The guns, are not the problem. The people is the problem. The society that basically holds no one accountable is the problem.
Try telling the thousands of families he put out of work by shutting down the coalmines. An if its an "industry of the past" how come its still the leading source of energy worldwide?
He has those liberal homer glasses on bro
I havent downvoted you once nor will I. I only downvote people that actually say negative things about me or attack me in a vulgar manner.
