I find it funny that while ostensibly illegal for the CIA to assasinate people through normal means, it is perfectly legal to assasinate them through drone strikes
Because given the nature of the US political system any socialized medicince scheme that passed would be as bad as the NHS if not worse.
Officially by 32% of the population. But given general distrust of some asshole calling up and going "do you own any guns" you have to figure that number is low by at least 10%
Was in Manchester during the late 90's. The B&B we stayed at didn't come with washcloths for the shower. Towels, but no washcloths.
If you are referring to gun lovers that small is almost a third of the adult population. And that's the legal gun owners. Doesn't include all the gangbangers which would raise it by at least 5-10%. So not so SMALL a group.
Longer running? The push back against the gun control assholes has been going on since the 1968 GCA was passed. Hell, one of the gratest victories of that pushback was the 1986 FOPA, even with the illegally 'deemed' passed amendment banning new machine guns. For which, by the way, that ratfuck Charles Rangel needs to die in a fire. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6Mx2UcSEvQ The amendment was ILLEGALLY attached to FOPA.
Mmmm, barrels are difficult to make properly to modern tolerances. Well, not so much difficult as requiring specialized equipment. Course, criminals don't give a damn about their weapons being at all accurate beyond 100 yards so that's really not an issue.
Total murder rates however dropped by the same amount. Which was around 30% iirc. Unless you believe that being murdered with a gun is somehow more abhorrent than by being murdered in any other way, gun soecific statistics alone are irrelevant.
Doing so would show that the US has almost double the knife homicide rate of the UKs ENTIRE homicide rate. Or used to anyway, I haven't really compared numbers for the last 5 years or so. Moreover, if you ignore murder rates, the UK is much more dangerous than the US.
The nearest gun carrier to Giffords was drinking coffee in a shop around the corner and down the street from the Dem rally being held. By the time he got there Loghner had fumbled a mag change and been mobbed.
Of course, there's the fact that things like carbon trading schemes and everything else proposed by Al Gore et al has about as much to do with the environmental equivalent of chemotherapy as homeopathy has to do with medicine
The real issue is that none of the "solutions" advocated by the vast, vast, vast majority of the AGW crowd would remotely solve oceanic acidification. It would perhaps drop the saturation point in 100 years from what the high would be without said plans, but since saturation is so slow and we are already seeing effects that means virtually nothing. Which means the only solutions are either killing off the vast majority of humanity and hoping land based carbon sinks grow fast enough to offset the current acidification, or for humans to engineer a massive man-made carbon sequestration scheme.
Wow you're stupid. In point of fact, as long as they pay the licensing fees which are a flat rate, they can play whatever song they want. It's just considered uncouth to do so when the band bitches abuut it.
Self-employed people will hit between 50 and 60% when working in Illinois for an LLC with company profits over 200,000 per employee. No matter if that money was going to be invested back into the company or not.
Yes, because without venture capitalists Hostess wouldn't have gone under in 2009. Instead it would have miraculously become solvent while upholding all its union obligations and there would have been Twinkies for everybody.
