Mitch McConnell Gun Control Email: You're 'Literally Surrounded,' They're 'Coming For Your Guns'

“I do not understand congressmen like McConnell he is crying "WOLF" over gun law enforcement and will wholesale deny Other parts of Constitution.
*All men(and women) are created equal,
*that there be no violation of search and seizure (we have become a police state and computer transmission, phone calls, private conversations, and our homes are SEARCHED without warrants or probable cause),
*shall not be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, not deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation ( torture, put in prison for years and years without due process, impounding property without court procedure, again Police state violation of rights) *The Right to a speedy trial.
*Fair and simple Voter's Rights,
*Not recognizing Civil Rights.
*and the simple courtesy of some bi-partisanship to keep the country running smoothly and not being a stone in the shoe of Americans.”

Ari Fleischer Says He'll Give Less To Charity Because Of New Limits On Tax Breaks

Commented Jan 3, 2013 at 00:45:17 in Impact

“I tweeted him, So you do not give and help charities with your contribution? You USE CHARITIES to make money, shame!”

bluetickjr on Jan 3, 2013 at 01:06:56

“Why do you speak when you don't know? You can't make money on your taxes by contributing. For example, I am in the 28 percent tax bracket and like to donate $2000 (about all I can afford to do) to charity, the maximum tax break I can get is 28 percent of $2000 or $560. Therefore, knowing that I'll get about $560 back, I donate an additional $560. If the government takes that tax break away, then I can only afford to donate $2000. So the charity (4 different ones in my case) comes out the loser. Ari isn't talking about doing something evil or revengeful, he assumed most people understand how this all works and was just talking common sense. Maybe you and many others posting don't pay much for taxes or you don't contribute. If Ari is contributing, it isn't making him richer, it is making him a good person which many posting should learn from.”

“Seems Mr. President must not be a very good poker player and lacks some negotiation skills. When you have just won a big hand and have most of the table on your side you do not show part of your hand and you sure don't let someone who just took a big loss bluff you with all the cards not delt yet. 250 grand up to 400 grand is giving up TOO MUCH, what was wrong with maybe 300 grand first or 325?? And when you been winning the other players should have put something in the ante first, dammit!!!”

Michele Bachmann: Obama Administration Adopting 'False Narrative' On Benghazi

Commented Nov 17, 2012 at 22:07:35 in Politics

“Actually the people who would know what was going on would be the State Department not the President, he gets his information 2nd or 3rd hand from them). And as far as other persons knowing anything it would be persons watching and working with the State Department who would be U.S. Intelligence who is informed what is going on by C.I.A. and Military Intelligence who should report to House and Senate Intelligence and that would be Michelle Bachmann and Diane Finestein wouldn't it? So Bachmann should know and if not she should check with CIA and Military Intel, not the President.”

“How does this boss know that the Affordable Health Law will cost more or less than the 5% surcharge. To make sure his finances should be investigated by the IRS or other Government agency to determine if he is gouging his customers.”

“Because insurers have already started raising rates. Mine has gone up 60% in just 2 years. It was 3% of my salary, then almost immediately after Obamacare passed, went to 4%. We just renewed this week, it's now 5%. They are telling us to expect 9% of our salary by 2014.

“Most courts in Texas are not federal courts, just as most government buildings are not federal buildings. Texas has a state Constitution and state elections. Texas also has a very strong economy. The money we'd save on Obama's vacations alone would offset any federal funding we'd lose.”

“Loose the Constitution? Why? Obama & the liberals dont believe in it! So they dont need it.”

Big John Lawrence on Nov 14, 2012 at 04:12:07

“The US government sends Social Security checks to countries all over the world. Why would it not send lawfully earned funds to citizens living in Texas? Union with Mexico might not be bad. The Texas Rangers could clean up the drug cartels in about thirty days. The success of Texas in declaring independence would draw other states. I might remind you: Texas was not United States territory when it entered a contract of annexation. That contract can be voided at any time. Of course, one interesting wrinkle in the contract is that Texas retained the right to divide itself - at any time of its own choosing - into five separate states. That could result in eight more Republican Senators showing up in Washington, swinging the Senate into Republican hands. Many of the southern states should divide so as move control of the Senate out of New England. Consider the changes in the Electoral College.”

Residents In More Than A Dozen States Petition White House To Secede From United States

Commented Nov 12, 2012 at 21:22:58 in Politics

“I think think if those states are bound and determined to sucede they should be able to, they should give up all representation in the United States of America. The citizens should give up their citizenship, borders between their state and the United States should be erected and they should have to provide themselves with passports for what ever they want to call their country. Since dollars are the trading and buying of the United States of America, they should either surrender it or if the United States does not want it returned they should have to destroy their dollars and change. The United States Banking should be able to sever banking with the other country and take possesion of all dollars and properties within the United States border. Communication lines should be impounded at their border and social security and pensions should be withheld from citizens of their country. Tariffs should be imposed, United States Postal should be removed, social security should be severed, and pensions involving United States should be frozen until agreements and Constitution and By-laws could be written and put in place by the new country and/or countries. Electricity and water lines should be withheld until the other country figures out what and how they will pay for it. Have at it go "form your perfect Union."”
