i thought it went without saying, but judging from some of the replies to my comment, i guess common sense is dead.

with free will, comes responsibility. we are responsible for our choices, not the government, not my neighbors. me, myself, I... those of you that want to take care of people who make bad choices are ridiculous. yes, worthy or ridicule. where does it stop? where is the line drawn? we are not property of the state and are thus not their responsibility.

smokers are free to smoke, and they are free to take care of their own damn medical bills. this is why "free" "government" health care is so evil, it makes you the property of others.

he who pays, decides.

yikes! tell me who exactly passed "net neutrality"? i believe a very small group of APPOINTED bureaucrats, imposed their agenda with ZERO congressional oversight. they wouldn't even give congress(who is our elected law makers) a copy of what they planned on imposing.

i fail to see how this is "passing" anything. this is more along the lines of a executive decree, subject to the whims of whoever is in control at the time.

gay marriage, is overwhelmingly voted down in most states where it comes up to a vote or addressed by its elected officials. there again, a very small group of appointed judges(better then the bureaucrats from the first case, but unelected none the less) decreeing against the will of the people.

what good is passing anti-corruption laws, when they ignore the law? what makes one more followable then another?

the government breaks your leg, and makes you pay for the government provided(free) crutch.

you beat me to it. this was the very first thing i thought of as well. while convenient, as it would make carrying a wallet unnecessary, it's a huge trap. you can't complain the cops have your phone, if you hand it to them. not to mention the camera you're probably using to document the stop is under their control.

you end up with "established science" that claims, if we don't give all our money and lower our standard of living, and force third world countries to continue to wallow in poverty and filth, the world is going to end.

if you dare to disagree, you are an unenlightened denier, and hate babies.

tax collectors or their enforcers will eventually show up with guns if you don't pay. the guns imply that force will be used if you don't comply. force == violence. it happens everyday in the United States. just because most people submit when they are arrested, doesn't mean the threat of violence isn't always there.

Murika is conditioning its citizens to fear any and all mention of guns and weapons. none of these types of storys are because of "stupid" administrators and teachers, it's an unspoken, unwritten plan to make all future generations shun weapons and guns.

it's the only way to do away with the pesky notion of personal responsibility and self defense.

an entire generation of children so scared of even talking about guns, will never own a gun let alone vote against anything that bans them.

conditioning at its best.

you actually use Israel as an example? you are proving my point. Israel bends over backwards to warn their enemy, they are going to destroy weapons and facilities used to kill Israelies.

Israelies do not use suicide anything, they don't use human shields and they along with evangelicals do not say convert or die.

having been in the army of the governments they elect and having first hand interaction with the muslims in occupied countries. there is zero intention or incentive for them to convert.

"How is that any different from, say, evangelical christians? Stop exporting your own brand of religious evil before you start casting stones on other people."

last i checked, evangelical's are not conducting suicide attacks and using children as human shields in order to convert people to their side.

until you and your kind can see the huge differences between peaceful religions who have reformed and can play well with others, and the religions who say convert or die, we will continue to have needless death at the hands of these extremists.

the US did not create Al Quaeda, stop repeating that lie.

I do not think you realize how difficult it is to train third world people to use state of the art military equipment.

been there done that. not even something worth doing. i give you the current state of Iraq as an example of 10 years of training flushed down the drain.

besides these weapons should be fairly easy to neutralize by any reasonably modern military.

Here is a great place to go to find a charity that best fits your needs.

The solution to your problems and wrongs is not to take it out on others or to create even bigger more inefficient uncaring government programs. government programs do not help, they enslave. they trap its users in the machine.

PS. nice try, but alas just more progressive class/race/gender warfare designed to divide and empower bigger government.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
