Wayne LaPierre: More Guns Needed For 'Hellish World' Filled With Hurricanes, Kidnappers, Drug Gangs

Commented Feb 14, 2013 at 12:10:47 in Politics

“So if it is not the Government that law abiding gun owners will be protecting themselves from, but basically your neighbors, then why does the NRA have such a problem with licensing and background checks? Neither of these interfer with a law abiding citizen's right to own a gun.

I also find it ironic that he uses violent mexican drug cartels as one of the dangers when the weapons they use are often times legally purchased in the US.”
Residents In More Than 30 States File Secession Petitions

Residents In More Than 30 States File Secession Petitions

Commented Nov 14, 2012 at 09:31:42 in Politics

“I guess this is the equivalent of liberals threatening to move to Canada after Bush was elected.

Though it is funny to note that many of the petitioners are not from the states the petitions are for.

The people who are actually serious about secession haven't thought about the consequences. Loss of federal money for many of these states will not be made up for by not paying federal taxes. Many of them receive more federal money than they pay in taxes. Military bases will close and take their money and economic effects else where. Defense Contractors will move out. Major corporations who enjoy the benefits of US citizenship will move out. Car manufacturers will move out. Research Universities will collapse because of loss of funding. Clothing manufactures who sell to the government will move out. It would send many of these states into recession or depression.”

“Divorces happen everyday where people did not fully think of all the consequences.
Its actually not possible to consider all the ramifications and indirect consequences of such a break. You just have to believe that the gain will outweigh the loss and be willing to lose everything to get the freedom to rebuild.”

“We go to war in the 1940s, we get raised taxes and a call for shared sacrifice, to go without certain amenities and to recycle supplies to be used in the war effort. The War Ends, taxes drop, we go into a boom economy. We go to war in in the 2000s, we get tax cuts and are asked to go buy flat screens. One war ends, another keeps going and going, the economy crashes.

Maybe a few years of higher taxes will do us some good. Maybe those small business owners who might get hit by higher income taxes may instead keep the money in their business to grow it. Maybe if we taxed income from investment as income from labor we might not have such major volitility in the stock market and remember that the financial markets are a means to grow the economy, not the ends.”

James O'Keefe's Project Veritas Takes Voter Fraud Video Campaign To D.C. Polls (VIDEO) (UPDATED)

Commented Apr 10, 2012 at 09:09:09 in DC

“When I see a large enough number of cases of people being convicted for impersonating a voter at the polls, I will become concerned about this. Until then, why don't we focus on the actual problems of people voting out of district, voting in multiple districts, buying votes, and tampering with ballots. I've only heard of two cases where someone tried to get someone else's ballot in person, once in New Hampshire and once in DC.

And also, if people really are out there in a well organized and wide spread campaign to impersonate thousands of voters at the polls, you don't think they would spend the resources to get fake IDs? I doubt the average person working the polls is going to be able to recognize a well done fake ID. They would probably do much better at noticing the voter's signature does not match the one on file.”

rlmillercn on Apr 10, 2012 at 09:35:25

“Google voter fraud. There have been cases, including recently. How many convictions before you become concerned? In many states it is too easy, so how can the perpetrators be caught?”

devildog09 on Apr 10, 2012 at 09:26:06

“When you are willing to pay enough higher taxes to support the LE effort to investigate and convict, you will probably get your wish. But compared to robberies, rapes and murders, voter fraud is rather low on the list. If you want "evidence" look at all the stories that exist about anomolies in registration and voting numbers. Just yesterday there was a report of one state in which voter registration rolls were compared to latest census data- and it was found that 17 counties in one state had more registered voters than they had adults of voting age. Interesting, don't you think?”

House GOP Discusses Reviving Earmarks

House GOP Discusses Reviving Earmarks

Commented Apr 3, 2012 at 09:23:25 in Politics

“Earmarks might be something that is a necessary evil. Without them, Congress turns over a significant amount of power, "power of the purse," to the executive branch. However, members of Congress have no incentive to reduce the number of earmarks they get for their district because each earmark benefits their district. Who is going to get mad at their Congressman for bringing money into the district? It is the same thing with earmarks as with members of Congress, "My districts earmarks aren't the problem, its the rest of the earmarks." Find me a member of Congress with the same approval rating as the Congress as a whole.”

John Boehner Weighs In On Bobby Rush Hoodie

Commented Mar 29, 2012 at 13:15:26 in Politics

“The discussion should be about what Rep Rush was protesting, not whether he should have been removed for violating the house rules. The question to Speaker Boehner should have been; "Do you think Rep Rush has a point that there is a problem with racial stereotyping in this country?" Protest is meant to draw attention to an issue but I think most of the media is drawing attention to the wrong issue in this case. His removal brought attention to his speech which likely would have gone mostly unoticed, but instead of talking about what he was protesting, they are talking about whether others have ever violated the house dress code.”

“The discussion should not be about whether it was proper to remove Rep. Rush from the floor, it should be about whether there is a problem with stereotyping. The question to Boener should have been, "Do you think Rep. Rush had a valid point?" not, "Do you think it was proper to remove Rep. Rush from the floor?" Protest is meant to draw attention to an issue, but I think most of the media is drawing attention to the wrong issue.”

“Stereotyping is an issue because he acted like the typical stereotyped black "leader" which was totally disrespectful of the proper way to do things. It's people like Rush that hurt blacks more than they help them”

“The question should be why is Bobby Rush a racist fool? Thats the question. Maybe the guy should concern himself with the countless killings of young black men in his district instead of grand standing on a non issue. 45 shootings this past weekend alone.
