On Gun show attendance doubles over 2012
“it’s fun to rattle off a bunch of shots in a row.”
Well, if that's the case, why can't you just fire off these assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons at a licensed gun range? What could possibly be a reason for owning one and keeping it in your home? I don't care if you like to play with guns, to each his own. But I'd feel much better if you do it in a safe place.
On Gun policy’s slippery slope
creature, of course you can protect yourself and your property while waiting for the police to arrive. I don't think anyone is arguing that point. The point being argued, is centered around HOW you propose to defend yourself. Do you really need to fire off hundreds of rounds to protect your house? In all fairness, you aren't really allowed to shoot anyone unless your LIFE is in immediate danger. Your house is insured. If someone intrudes, get your family out safely and escape the situation if you can. If you can't, shouldn't a regular handgun be more than sufficient to protect your family from danger? Why do you think it is ok to have assault weapons that are intended for mass-killings?
On Young illegal immigrants coming out of the shadows
Misdirected anger from a lot of these posters. Maybe you should be angry at the American companies that employ illegal immigrants, thus creating an incentive for them to cross the border? If there weren't jobs, they wouldn't come. Most illegal immigrants aren't living off welfare, they are living off working for American employers who just don't give a damn.
On Health care act is reason for thanks this Mother’s Day
RAF...you amuse me. You throw around words like "socialist" and "liberal" like they are cuss words that represent everything you think is wrong with the world. All the while the issues that other posters attempt to discuss are issues that affect all of us, no matter where we stand politically. You do not argue rationally. When you disagree with someone, you just call them "liberal" or "socialist" to dismiss their views, regardless of whether those views fit the labels you give them. It's not only ignorant, but it also contributes absolutely nothing to the discussion. Sleep tight.
RAF - I said google "Socialism". Not Socialist Party USA. Two very different things. Are you getting too sleepy?
RAF...while you are up in the middle of the night earning your salary, can't you spend some time Googling "socialism" so you can maybe finally understand what it means and stop using it so incorrectly over and over again? And since you have so much time during the night, maybe you should say a little prayer of thanks for the fact that you are fortunate enough to be of good health and haven't had to use the services you are entitled to. You are not the only one who has made sacrifices for your country and your family. A little humility would go a long way as you speak so derogatively of people who do not have your options available for healthcare or income. The arrogance is distasteful.
On Deported, and now childless
This should outrage ALL of us. This is not a political red/blue issue. This is about a goverment willfully stealing children from a parent. Give the man his children back and let them live in Mexico together. The US has no right to keep these children away from their parent. This is deeply disturbing.
On Obama vs. Israel: Priority No. 1? Stop Israel
Oh Kraut....we can always trust you to write an opinion piece that stirs the pot again. So tired of this same old story...if we don't agree with Israel on everything they say and do, then we must be jew haters. Whatever. I am sick of Israel and their arrogant and agressive policies and actions. I am glad Obama is the first president in a long time to have the cojones to stand up to their bullying. Long overdue.
On The year I became a 'minority'
donnaw - I would like you to give a specific example of which minorities you claim teach their children to look down on those who take education seriously. I am assuming you must know a lot about those minorities since you are bold enough to call it a "culture thing". That indicates that the entire cultural/ethnic group you are speaking of practices this behavior. Please enlighten the rest of us with some facts to support your statement.
On Plans to drug test welfare recipients get momentum
JasonTh - you are absolutely right. This is all about money to be made for private companies. And the GOP gets to pretend that they are being righteous in the process. Such a ridiculous game. As a tax payer, I am offended that they are even proposing this.
