Whoa whoa whoa, back the truck up here a second. You're assuming that because I don't like the president I MUST be a conservative Republican. Not true, I am a moderate Libertarian, so every argument (and all the name calling) you used that was based on this false assumption is rendered invalid from the get-go. Now, on to the others:
We, the Americans that are in the far majority, LIKE 99% of Obamacare's provisions.
Are you delusional? There are multitudes of surveys and poles that say the exact opposite.
Stopped invading other countries is not well spun subjective opinion. It is a real fact. You called it an objective opinion because again, you don't like that we did it.
I wasn't talking about the war part being subjective, I was talking about the, "We stopped insulting every other country" part being subjective, which it is.
Let me ask you a question. Assume that a president gets elected and institutes a flat tax at 20%, makes abortion illegal, and makes it legal to conceal carry or open carry any gun - from a pistol to an ak-47. You personally would consider that man a great president, correct?
Hard to say, I liked Clinton, hated Bush and hate Obama.
President Obama has successfully delivered multiple large victories to the left.
Funny, I thought he was the President of the UNITED STATES, not the President of the liberals.
Yes, if Congress had been more liberal, he could have got more done - but you personally would have hated him even more. That is WHY you hate him - and also why we love him.
No, I hate him because he's been an incredibly bad president. Just like I hated Bush because he was an incredibly bad president. Don't tell me why I like or dislike something.
People like you are a huge part of what's wrong with the country today. It's this stupid us vs. them mentality and you've played right into it. I'm sorry you're a liberal Obama-loving shill. Hopefully at some point you'll start voting and thinking based on results, not on the party line.
1) We got healthcare
We got a badly implemented form of mandatory health insurance (notice, I said 'health insurance,' NOT healthcare) that further penalizes the poor for not being able to afford it.
2) We killed Osama Bin Laden after Bush failed to do so for 7 years
3)We stopped insulting every other country and going to war on bad information.
This is purely some well-spun subjective opinion which means absolutely nothing in terms of hope and/or change.
SO basically the only hope and change that occurred was that Bin Laden was finally killed; and it wasn't like Obama had much, if anything to do with that directly. If you rate that as an A- I have some choice real estate to sell you.
The truly scary thing about all this is that you, along with so many others, have actually convinced yourself that he's a good president.
Are you threatening me?
Do you see an "or else" in my post? I'm not threatening anyone, although I'm sure you'd like that because then you could shout from the rooftops that the nasty gun owner made naughty typings at you. Do you honestly think that gun owners are "clearly moron rednecks?" If so then you're stereotyping.
Stop selling them to idiots with mental problems
I think that will kill the gun market right there.
That fact that this got modded +5 insightful is disgusting and scary all at the same time. Just because you don't like guns doesn't mean you get to paint gun owners as idiots with mental problems. I know that being anti-2nd amendment is currently the fashionable thing to do in liberal circles, but don't dare start trying to make me look like an inbred hick just because I happen to like to target shoot.
So I guess this page on the FCC website doesn't actually mean anything then. I guess the bribes finally became large enough.
If you have a basic understanding of how the English language was written at that time, and an understanding of the definition of the word 'militia' at the time of the writing of the amendment, there is no debate. The writers wanted everyone who could serve in a militia to be able to have a firearm. Those who could serve in a militia were THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. There is no reason to think any differently.
What amazes me is how many of the same people who will state that the Bill of Rights clearly gives women the right to have an abortion, will twist the 2nd amendment around to say that citizens should not have guns. (Note I'm not trying to start a discussion on abortion, I'm just saying that if you can read abortion into the Bill of Rights, then gun ownership cannot be questioned.)
Since Guns kill people, and modern guns kill a lot of people easily and are far easier to use, it's not a fair comparison to the press.
You are using a strawman, stop it.
Everything in your post is incorrect, geekoid. Every. Single. Thing.
1. Until guns are able to sprout legs and pull their own trigger, they are not capable of killing anyone.
2. No one compared killing people to freedom of the press. You did that all on your own.
3. It's not a strawman unless you twist the op's words around, which you did.
You're being disingenuous and inflammatory, stop it.
