“Mark Herring is the Attorney General of VA, but he's not a Republican. C'mon guys, don't you have editors to check the work of the teenagers in Bangalore that write your articles?”

“More proof that we need background checks before allowing people to run for office, to make sure they haven't been adjudicated mentally incompetent. This one fell through the cracks.”

“Yes, sorry for the glaring omission! Just get a pit bull terrier to go with your concealed carry license while living on the beach, then you can sign your paycheck over to your property & liability carrier, be broke, and qualify for food stamps. Perfect.”

“Gee Ted, while you're at it, let's also enshrine state's rights to put black folks at the back of the bus, and in separate public bathrooms. Um, that goes for Canadians too, particularly those of Cuban descent. Why not?”

“Laws need to be clear, so if "need" and "moral character" are vague, then just clarify the requirements for background checks, training and licensing. Like driving. And like alcohol, tobacco, etc, make sure the registration fee covers the cost of administration, plus social and law enforcement consequences borne by us taxpayers. That is all 100% constitutional and non-controversial.”

ilovemyrights on Feb 13, 2014 at 21:20:51

“No that is controversial. They cannot tax or encumber a right. Would you accept a church tax or insurance? Or insurance for your vote? if your candidate is a stinker can they come back and make you pay for your vote?

No.

Reasonable fees, no taxes or fees that make the right unable to be exercised”

“You just overlooked the "just cause" requirement that you have a special need to carry a concealed weapon. We're not talking about the right to bear arms, we're talking about the privilege of hiding them in your clothing.”

“Veterans use standard forms to file their taxes, don't they? And we pay taxes so we can have libraries with computers and people that can help. Jeez, you can't complain about VA backlogs and processing and then deny them a standardized claim process. Regardless, if they improve processing time, Congress will criticize the VA for paying claims too fast and allowing too many cases of fraud to go undetected.”

Dakotadude on Jan 11, 2014 at 22:38:55

“That would be cool, IF the VA was in the 21st century but they don't have their records on computer yet.”

“Obamacare and Obama are two different things. The ACA is good policy. And Obama is an incompetent manager like Bush. Asleep at the wheel most of the time. Neither was good at--nor cared about--being an effective politician. Clintons understand what the job is. It's politics, and management. Not speechmaking.”

smahl on Nov 18, 2013 at 00:11:26

“Very true. But this is the area of Obama that many do not understand. Leading involves a lot more then just talking and having a nice smile. Taking a backseat is not a form of leading. Many of course will come with the talk of it is because of the R's and that no other president has ever had to deal with this kind of pressure from opposition etc. All one has to do is look at Clinton and see that a person can still lead even when faced with opposition.”

newman2012 on Nov 18, 2013 at 00:05:36

“The most important revelation is that this moment was the result of a concerted effort begun three years ago by the Koch bros, Ed Meese III, and their organizations, with hundreds of millions in funding. A real "right-wing conspiracy" as it were. Everyone but the Republican leadership knows that the President and the US Senate cannot give in to these demands under a minority threat to destroy the US economy and destabilize global markets. What's next, repealing women's right to vote? They were all upset when President Wilson signed that into law too. Let's not forget the Social Security Act either...”

“Evo Morales's bona fides include finishing elementary school and almost finishing secondary school. His expertise is mainly in farming maize and coca. Which is why he doesn't realize that he has no standing, as President of Bolivia, to sue anyone on behalf of the President of Venezuela, for whatever reason. Besides, since when does a flight from Caracas to China go over Puerto Rico? Is he confusing PR with Costa Rica? And besides, in the context of a nine thousand mile flight to China, is going around an island really a crime against all of Humanity?”

“I, too, live in Arizona. I have watched for many years as the legislature has continually pushed education further and further on the back burner until it finally fell off the stove. I scoff at the way schools get designated "A+" and such. The kids I know who are coming out of this system are a collective box of rocks. It's really tragic. They have virtually zero exposure to anything except materials that will be on the all important tests that determine who gets a raise. It's pitiful, really. I get young men coming into my line of work (construction) who can't read a tape measure, don't know what a fraction is, and can't express themselves well, or comprehend someone who does. And the politicians are breaking their arms patting themselves on the back.”

“Snowden's role model seems to be a egomaniac who is accused of rape in Sweden and professes his innocence from his hiding place at Ecuador's embassy in London. Because you can't get a fair trial in a totalitarian dictatorship like, um, Sweden.”

baltbear on Jul 1, 2013 at 20:31:25

“No, Assange is not accuseed of rape. He is being invesitgated for "sexual unfreedom" and the entire argument is someone in the Swedish government saying that Assange's vido deposition was unsatisfactory, and he demands the privilege of doing it in person---in Sweden.
Because of loopholes in treaties, this demand can be called a warrant--tho it wouldn;t be one in the USA.
The Japanese also use this trick to issues warrants for "suspicion of..." when there is no such crime.”

“Agree! But since law enforcement agencies would not willingly skirt the law and bypass the required background check, it is likely that very few members of the Defense League would escape being identified as adjudicated mentally incompetent, and therefore could not purchase these guns.

“Even though we've wasted a ton of money building the "dang fence", it's just pushing border crossers into the remaining gaps. Ironically, Arizona ranchers are just seeing the success of the border fence in California and Yuma. Ultimately, the dang fence must stop in New Mexico, where the Rio Grande forms the last thousand miles of border. And you can't build a fence in a shallow river channel that changes seasonally. Dang it. Reality can be so inconvenient.”

“Yes doc, but the media got it wrong. She was THANKING the President for passing the American Recovery Act ("stimulus") that paid for the inter-terminal airport train (almost completed today) under construction in the background of that television shot, which put over 300 people to work (direct employment, not counting the multiplier effect of payroll), at a time when our housing bubble popped and tanked construction jobs. She needs to get on bended knee and kiss his skinny black tush for the thousands of border security and National Guard troops deployed. Curiously, none of this was an issue before our President became non-white.”

“I just received my US-made Master trigger locks for my three guns. Too bad the NRA hasn't taken a leadership role reminding us that lawful firearms can be stolen or taken impulsively by others and used to inflict death, injury, and suffering. If people want to arm themselves to shoot varmints or to fight the US military in their dystopic paranoid future, they should at least practice the kind of gun safety the NRA preached to me in 1974 when I took my hunter's safety course. The NRA seems to have lost its way, and Joe is right about that.”

“Dont give these nuts too much credit. This is not a church, and even "hate-mongering quasi-religious group" implies they are bigger and more important that they really are.

If they accumulate wealth, build mansions or buy jet airplanes, then they have taxable earnings. Free them to preach love, hate, or politics. Just get taxpayers out of it.”
