Three groups I will never understand: dog people, gun people and religious people.
Maybe all the mouth-breathers rushing out to arm up are doing the rest of the U.S. a favor by what will inevitably result in them culling their own herd.
Doesn't Congress understand that by their inaction on important matters they abdicate more power to the president? It's been than way for many years now, with no change in sight. Every war we have fought since World War II has been an illegal war, since the Constitution specifies that war can only be declared by an act of Congress.
I suggest Obama utilize the Patriot Act to monitor and investigate all NRA members to see who has assault weapons and then do something about them. After all, many of these people are lunatics who are waiting for some reason to snap and start blasting innocents. Get 'em before they hurt someone. Watch "Doomsday Preppers" so you can see the mentality of these crazies.
I wonder how much it will cost the city of Charleston to clean the muck and mud from the swelled Kanawha River off of that hideous stage on the levee.
I really admire Colin Powell, especially after he called out his own party, the GOP, regarding their racist attitude. This has been obvious for some time now, and he should be commended for speaking the truth.
So the NRA wants to put armed guards in every school in America and wants us, the taxpayers, to pay for it. Think of it: These paranoid cowards want us to pay for their right to hide behind an assault weapon! Police don't even carry assault weapons. I'm a hunter and a gun owner, but controlling assault weapons is plain common sense.
I'll be more than happy to tell you why you should help pay for President Obama's vacation when you tell me why I should help pay for George W. Bush's illegal invasion and war in Iraq.
People with guns with high-capacity magazines protect the anti-gun President Obama and the anti-gun Mayor Bloomberg and their families. They seem to feel that our lives are worth less than theirs.
Pete Thaw doesn't want the smallest percentage of the Kanawha County Board of Education budget to go to the Kanawha County Public Library (which relies on that funding for 40 percent of its operational costs) because his family can afford to buy books and he begrudges the underprivileged who rely on the public library for all, or nearly all, of their reading material. That's what the dispute is really all about.
The president laid it out pretty plain for Congress with his sensible suggestions for curbing gun violence. But they will do nothing. Remember: The next time our children are gunned down in a mass shooting, ignore the statements of sorrow and the alligator tears from politicians.
If you want Sen. Joe Manchin to shut his mouth, just ask him about the firing of Fred Armstrong.
Kudos to our President Obama, who has the guts to stand up to the bullying, deep-pocketed NRA. Hopefully he'll follow through until there is some sort of repeal of the ancient, outdated Second Amendment.
I see it's OK for the GOP-backed corporations having it both ways. They can make a contract and have you work like a dog for 40 years, then just when you're ready to collect, take it all away by stealing your pension. It's being done to the Baby Boomers with the blessing of the GOP courts. Peons go to jail for stealing 5 bucks.
It's stupid for politicians to say they support the Second Amendment or any other amendment. Makes no difference whether they support it or not. It exists, as do the other amendments, whether one likes it or not.
