“Abercrombie makes some great sweaters and nice outerwear. The quality is pretty good and they always seem to find a way to put modern cuts into classic designs. I wouldn't buy their ts or sweatshirts, but their sweaters will keep you warm. Try going out in 20 degree weather wearing a sweater from the Gap or Target and see what happens. If you do decide to buy from them do it online so you can avoid the overbearing aroma of the cologne that permeates everything in the store. After 10 minutes in one of their stores you'll walk out disoriented and light headed.”

“I happen to think that you are absolutely correct on both claims. Bush and Rubio could move the needle with Latino voters. But _if_ Hilary runs she'll "move the needle" with women voters AND she'll be able to bring more white males back "into the fold". It will be an interesting race to be sure.”

“No but the Cons think they do, because Bush has a latino wife and that Rubio is Cuban. The problem with that is that Latino's don't vote on who your wife is nor on her ethnicity, and they sure don't vote overwhelmingly any one way just because someone has an ethnic background. Apparently few in the GOP have realized the deep distrust between the Cuban-Americans and nearly every other Latino group.....”
“Dozens of home grown serial killers and domestic terrorists would probably disagree. Go talk to the kkk, Gary Ridgeway, or Ted Kazinski. Btw, there are over 375 million Americans in this country not 200 m.”

“I know there are more than 200 million Americans. That why I said 200 million+. The other millions are probably still debating whether or not to cause harm. I just get really weary hearing about American culture being the root cause for every evil act perpetrated in the world. BTW, KKK, Ridgeway, Kazinski, Zodiac, Green River killer, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, Manson, Dahmer, Bundy, Son of Sam. . . an unending list of serials who targeted specific people for a specific (absolutely insane) reason. I guess going about it one-by-one isn't that much different than going after hundreds at a time for no discernable reason other than they are Americans. Your opinion is noted. ;)”
“We have more people in prison and living homeless on the street than any other country on Earth. We also enjoy violence, at least on tv and in video games. We're hypocrites, often discriminating against others not like ourselves, and somewhat selfish. We also discriminate against women, its just not talked about. US society has some good traits, but the negative traits when combined seem to be enough to be a breeding ground for these types of killers.”
“Gas prices are controlled by the market. We could technically pull out of the market and control our own reserves through the nationalization of those reserves. If we do we could sell them to the public at discounted prices.”
“The less money the uneducated make per hour the more they need to rely on government support in the form of gov sponsored housing and food. Either way, the US is not a country that will leave families on the street to die.”

“Gun violence is pretty low in countries that have no guns. 1+1=2.”

“Gun violence is pretty low in countries that are mostly white. Gun violence is lower in the northern part of the globe. Gun violence is lower in areas that allow gay marriage. Correlation does not equal causation.”

“Gee, I wonder how many assaults, batteries, rapes, robberies, burglaries, murders, etc. You have to realize how many law-abiding people use firearms for home and personal defense which is why they shouldn't be banned outright. We can improve regulations to try to reduce criminal possession and ensure law-abiding owners are properly trained and educated on firearm use and safety to avoid accidental shootings and limit the accessibility of their firearms to the wrong people by securing them. I have provided links to crime rates for Austrailia. After they passed the ban in 1996, assaults and sexual assaults have steadily increased with each year. Also, note that even before the 1996 ban, more murders were committed with knives and sharp instruments than with firearms (except for the mass shooting in '96 which caused the ban).

“Except when you ignore the overall crime rate is pretty much the same-including violent crime and murder.
Take away the guns, and people will find another way to kill.”

“The U.S. has the highest rate of firearm deaths among 25 high-income nations.1 Another study concluded that among 36 high-income and upper-middle-income countries, the U.S. has the highest overall gun mortality rate.
The overall firearm-related death rate among U.S. children under the age of 15 is nearly 12 times higher than that among children in 25 other industrialized nations combined.
The firearm-related suicide rate for children between the ages of 5 and 14 years old in the United States is nearly 11 times higher than that in 25 other developed countries.
Americans own far more civilian firearms – particularly handguns – than people in other industrialized nations and U.S. gun laws are among the most lax in the world.
“Too late to try and ban guns. There are too many of them already out there. Its not going to happen, at least not in this country. What people CAN actually do is educate thier kids. Educated people tend to avoid guns and weapons of any kind. Smart people don't really need guns. There will be the occasional mentally ill person who decides to run amuck. It might be wise to put some funds into mental healthcare so those types can be identified before their killing spree. Other than that we all just have to accept that we live in a violent society. You want peace, go to japan, Tanzania, Norway, Chile, or any of the 100 or so nice countries in the world. This is the land of Nascar, corn dogs, and wannabe cowboys, where an obese population doped up on pain killers and viagra is desperately looking for ways to feel tough and powerful. Isn't that what all those kiddo videogames and guns are for?”

“So the solution is to allow MORE unregulated guns in the marketplace because there are already ones out there? Other than that, I pretty much agree.”

“You do a great disservice to the discussion with generalized comments about 'banning guns '. You feed into the 'the government is coming to take all of the guns.'”
