Nah it's cool I just thought I should throw it out there to be safe. I'm open to all ideas, just want what's best for everyone. If I were president I would be the guy who took a team of advisors and researchers and looked at everything that worked best when America prospered at its peek and bring those back to the forefront regardless of who's idea it was (repub vs demo). Of course I would also wear dress pants, button up, sleeves rolled up half way and no jacket so haha.
Oh and the playboy channel would be free for everyone.

"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
It's hard to follow such incredibly ignorant, paranoid, utterly hilarious and contradicting points of view. The fact that you honestly think armed citizens are protecting the country from tyranny is all anyone needs to know about you.
Actually he may not be far from the truth. I saw something on this one time with armed countries vs unarmed countries. It was pretty interesting actually.
Personal responsibility includes using birth control imo. Some people consider that abortion though. The people who think that need to be ready for the consequences of no birth control or abortion, or they need to stay away from the issue and let people use birth control and abortion as alternatives imo.
People who belive that are whack. Once it's forming and has a body I could see the argument, but blocking it from ever planting in the egg is not the same as abortion.
I'll be on the lookout for the well regulated militias.
Driving test are a joke and need complete revamping. My son may pass his test in 6 years, but he won't be driving anywhere until his old man gives him the ok.
I remember mine like yesterday. Twenty questions, one trip around the block and boom, go hit the fkn interstate kid. WTH is that???
So what if the parents are sh!tty drivers, too? Are you really that against an organization organizing (sorry for the double use) a safety and licensing system? What if it was a private group rather than the government?
'Cause that really doesn't answer my question. Much like your kid on the road, I don't KNOW you or your kid. I don't know what kind of stuff you taught him (or her) in regards to driving. Ergo, I don't inherently trust you. I'm much more inclined to trust other people if there was a baseline requirement to be able to hit the road. A better one than we have for sure.

But still it's MY job to make sure he's ready in everything in life, not someone else's so I don't put it all on them. These parents have got to start manning up and raising these kids and stop blaming others for their problems.
We've seemed to reach the status quo for any type of political discussion on tBB. Good stuff.
in the words of the wise devidee :
Us versus Them
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
It has nothing to do with "manning up." Some people just are sh!tty drivers. That's what I'm trying to convey.
But in this same vein, how do we translate your view to other things that we regulate and license, like for example, flying a plane?
I guess I'll just never understand that viewpoint. As Ty Webb would say: "This isn't Russia. Is this Russia? This isn't Russia."
How do you compare flying a plane to owning a gun?...
I don't consider the govt on my side either... Especially as of late.. Mostly because the corrupt politicians that are pushing his or her ideas for capital gain, completely ignoring the bill or rights and just down right going against everything the United States of America was built on...
USMCAG said: "More regulation from the government is bad. I want as little as possible, and them to stay the hell out of my business." I just expanded the argument to guns and cars to get his opinion. I just kept furthering the discussion, using planes as an example, to see where the line was drawn.
And quite frankly, it's no more ridiculous that the constant, "If we should ban guns, we should ban whiffle ball bats!" that I see thrown around these discussions all the time. And to reiterate yet again, I don't support a gun ban.
Ironically, I get laughed at when I say the same thing about most major corporations and how modern capitalism in no way does any good for the modern consumer.
95% (on the low side) of big business is corrupt... As is the media, which pushing whichever ideals fits them best to make $$.
The CORE of the problem is not guns, it is society. There's no personal accountability. To many bad parents, not enough people willing to put in a hard days work for honest pay... I could go on all day..
Is it not conceivable that access to firearms would offer you (not 'us' per se) a modicum of protection from the potential abuse of federal or local authority? In which state would a law enforcement official feel more comfortable stepping outside the boundaries of their authority, New York or Texas? In what city would a 'bad cop' feel more confident kicking your door off the hinges, New York or Jasper, Texas?
And if they didn't have a gun, they would use a hammer.
I'll go up against the hammer any day of the week, bro.
Not what I was saying. There is almost always common ground, it's just that both sides need to try and view things from the other perspective. For example, I was staunchly against the over-sized magazines for handguns and against assault weapons. Now what I really think should happen is that you need training with said weapon before purchase and there needs to be at least a 30 day waiting period. In addition, teh owners of the weapons need to register them and take full responsibility if they are stolen and used in a crime - that is after all, where most guns that are used in crimes come from. People need to use safes and the like to keep their weapons from being stolen.
You're just trying to find something to argue about now. I immediately agreed with your thoughts on driving test bro. My second comment about manning up was obviously about being a good parent in general and taking responsibility for your children, that's why I didn't put the two comments together.
As for me double checking his driving habits before setting him loose, that has nothing to do with his driving test and deserves no criticism. That's my preference. The test needs to be more in depth and cover more scenarios regardless of whether I let him hit the road immediately after getting his license.
