“There are many many many pretty hardwood guns that function exactly like the guns described above. If you saw one of those on my wall, I bet you would n't have ANY idea what it's capabilities are. Republicans display ignorance about SSI and lefties are clueless about guns.”

“In the last year that statistics are available, only 342 people were murdered by people using semi-auto rifles. About 8,000 people were murdered by people using hand guns. Again, why ban semi-auto rifles with cosmetic plastic parts and not ban handguns?”
“Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and Harry Truman are the hallmarks of freedom and democracy. History says their accomplishments ihave been in the last 100 years. Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, and Haliburton, et al, have undermined this mantle of freedom and democray in the last 25 years. You must be reading the neocons history books.”

“I am not offering you a right wing version of history here, in fact, quite the opposite. My view of America has been largely shaped by Howard Zinm, who was a great liberal scholar and activist.
Clinton and Obama are almost as bad as repubs, and have done almost as much to destroy the republic. Your partisan revisionism is tiring.”
“The New Republic had the story of the year in the Obama interview, IF it had focused the interview on all the findings in the Bitter Pill article. America would know the President's position on the health care industry. A perfect opportunity and Hughes and Foer blew it.”

“you are 1000% correct! they could have put the president in an inset pic. i am on the 2nd page and its a blockbuster. they could have had Brill do the interview!
“You are so correct. it is time for redemption. Clint Eastwood of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly fame, was the standard bearer for Hollywood in the recent presidential cycle. It is time for the left to redeem itself with an updated version. Set in Washington and covering the Viet Nam years, Watergate, and on to the Iraq war and Hurricane Katrina with the uglies being Nixon, Kissinger, Bushy and Brownie. Michael Moore could make a film the casts the true villians of the past 40 years, the Republicans cited above.”
“Gee Y ME, I can tell your home schooling has kicked in And now you want the NRA to be added to the curriculum.”

“Most schools used to offer gun safety classes. They were optional, but they offered them as an extra-curricular sort of class, usually after regular school hours. The NRA has been primarily a gun safety and marksmanship organization since it's founding shortly after the civil war. That war was fought mostly by militias and conscripts -- the rural South had a much better militia system where most adult males were enrolled, hence had it not been for numbers and firepower the NOrth could muster, they probably would have won. Two former Union officers began the NRA in hopes of improving marksmanship accross the country. They still do.”
