"According to federal data collected from police departments, in 2005 approximately 40% of female homicide victims ages 15-50 were killed by either a current or former intimate partner. In over half (55%) of these cases, the perpetrator used a gun."”

Berettasskeeter on May 1, 2014 at 15:11:57

“So, what is the precise number? 2011 figures are available. How many would have been prevented from killing? How many were already disallowed from firearms possession?

“I don't think he meant physically "starving". Guess unlimited meals, 35 flex meals to use after main dining halls close and the equivalent of $500 a semester to use at on campus restaurants isn't quite cutting it. I really hope he gets a big enough sign on bonus with the NBA, otherwise he won't be able to meet his high food budget.”

“So the super wealthy should be able to buy as much influence as they can afford? Helping to further a political system where the politicians they help elect are indebted and hold that wealthy individual's ideology above their constituents? Certainly sounds like a "freedom of speech" issue as the Speaker of the House so eloquently put it.”

“There is no ranking system by the NHTSA within the 5 star rating. A car achieves it or it doesn't, (most don't). Tesla claiming this is the "safest car" in history is just a publicity stunt to drum up more interest.”

“"We're going to have strict enforcement. If there are any demonstrations, we are going to clear the gallery," Dewhurst said Thursday. "I hope we don't get to that point but if we do, we do. This is a democracy and we will not be interrupted from doing the people's work by an unruly mob."

“Felt this was appropriate, some words from John Adams:

"The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not."

I think that it would be a small price to pay for millions of Americans to be able to celebrate their country's Independence with fireworks, parades, etc. I think more and more in today's society that is something that is missing in this country. Independence Day can be a time for us all to join together as citizens of this and rejoice in our freedoms.”

“The rich can buy and sell any celebration that the middle class would really enjoy. But why give us one? They only want our blood sweat and tears, not our loyalty or our patriotism. All the money is in the 1%, peasants don't deserve celebrations.”

Rather, Obama would be refocusing national security resources on the threat of homegrown terrorism.

It is clear that this Senator is speaking loudly enough so that he cannot hear anyone else. He obviously wasn't listening when the POTUS spoke and his actions now are clearly those of an obstructionist.”
