Gun Control Polls Find Support Sliding For Harsher Laws

Gun Control Polls Find Support Sliding For Harsher Laws

Commented Sep 21, 2013 at 19:22:17 in Politics

“Get rid of the nut-cases who "hear voices" and the black gangbangers who don't know any other way to establish their "macho street cred" except to shoot people, and the "gun problem" will go away. Don't you find it interesting that the cities with the toughest anti-gun laws (Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C.) have the highest gun murder rates? Laws are only obeyed by normal people - criminals don't care about laws, but the nanny liberals haven't figured that out yet.”

“First of all, that's not a jet at all - it's a plywood mockup with engine air intakes that will go immediately into compressor stall at any positive angle of attack, the canopy has no rails, seals, or latches, and the instrument panel is straight out of Best Buy, Radio Shack, and an old Cessna airsspeed indicator. The Iranian military officers present in the photos must be on the verge of throwing up to participate in such a kindergarten scam. It would only fly (straight down) if it was pushed out of the back of a C-130.”

“Bribes ("La Mordida") is the foundation of the Mexican economy, always has been, and always will be; you can't even get a phone installed in Mexico without bribing someone. I built three plants in Mexico, and without "La Mordida", none of them would exist today, and none of those people would have jobs. Deal with it.”

Charlie Jarchlie on Jan 12, 2013 at 16:38:05

“Bribing a zoning official to allow the construction of a massive WalMart practically in the shadow of Teotihuacan is not "the foundation of the Mexican economy", but is rather unconscionably tacky, disrespecful and, also, specifically illegal under American law. WalMart de Mexico didn't have to force the location of their superstore in the footprint of a UNESCO Heritage Site, but they did it anyway, and they should be called to account. (The fact that their executives lied about when they knew about the bribes shows they have something to hide, and are aware that what they did exceeds the "business as usual" bribery that you so generously practiced.)”

“I bribe practically everyone when I'm in Mexico. In many parts of the world, that is not only a way of life, but expected.”

“Politics and unions don't have anything to do with it.

“This is the "Black Macho" syndrome at work again, where the only way they can gain the respect of their peers is to shoot someone, which then becomes their easiest way of dealing with conflict and confrontation.

“There are some basic truths here that many either don't know, don't understand, or prefer to ignore. The fact is that Detroit is a dying city, and has been for over 40 years; during all of those many Democrat administrations, the city has spent more than it took in, and in spite of the highest property tax rates in the state, has borrowed (bond issues) continuously to cover the difference. The borrowing well has finally dried up and the cash is gone, not helped by a culture of municipal corruption, incompetence, and unbridled union power and demands for more, more, more.The incompetent city administration, politicians, and the hapless and disorganized City Council have refused to recognize the problem, much less address it, so that job is going to be done FOR them. That's the way it is - deal with it.”

10YearTeacher on Jul 31, 2012 at 10:58:33

“There has never been a Democrat administration. All elected officials in Detroit are non-partisan.

I'm not arguing that past administrations and city councils have not been corrupt and/or incompetent. They have, and that is a huge issue. Us taxpayers in Michigan are calling in the debts and may end up having to control Detroit directly. In the end it will be a good thing, but just don't lay the problem at the door of the Democrat party.”

“There are no photos "inside" a Polaroid camera; when you press the shutter button, the photo is ejected through pressure rollers from the front of the camera and finishes developing outside the camera. The story is bogus.”

“How do you train people (90%+ of whom can't read or write their own language) to do even basic maintenance of their own equipment?

“Well, DUH! Has anyone here ever lived or done business in Mexico? NOTHING happens in Mexico without bribing everyone in sight - that's how their economy works - it's called the "mordida". Doesn't matter if you just want a phone installed or a building permit for a factory - if you don't pay the "mordida", nothing happens; the entire country is corrupt, and always has been. I built two factories there in the 80's, and without "mordida" and hiring the Mayor's son as my "chief clerk", I'd still be waiting today for the permits.”

Newt Gingrich On Occupy Wall Street: Protesters Should 'Get A Job' And 'Take A Bath' (VIDEO)

Commented Nov 19, 2011 at 21:19:11 in Politics

“Newt's got it right. Most of these OWS people are simply aimless protesters, with no cohesive goals; one of the network on-site reporters asked four of them last night what they were protesting about, and not one of them could give an intelligent answer - they were just enjoying being part of the crowd, sharing the joys of the "gimme-gimme" generation, learning to be "community organizers" - sound like a familiar occupation? I put myself through college and worked hard for 45 years to provide for my family and saved to be able to retire at 65, and nobody owed or gave me anything along the way I didn't earn; all I'm "entitled to" is my Social Security check, which I (and my employer) contributed to for 45 years. Nobody "owes" the OWS protesters anything either - take a bath, and get a job; I don't want to hear your whining any more. You people and your entitlement mentality are a perfect example of what's wrong with America today; shut up, go back where you came from, and get to work - "hope and change" won't feed your family.”
