Gun Control BS

It is amazing that we have Senators in Congress that are as ignorant as these seem to be.

In some of the recent Tragedies where innocents were murdered by people who should have received care by the medical system and by the organizations for which they worked, yet were to somehow believe that more gun control would stop this? That is just plain Stupid and these people are in control of the Senate…

Think about that when you vote in 2014.

The most recent tragic event where good people lost their lives, was the direct result of a lack of medical care by the Veterans Administration. Another Fact is that there were no armed security personal that could respond in time to prevent this horrible nightmare.

Gun Free City, but it did not stop the violence.

It did not stop Boston, it did not stop Sandy Hook, All Gun Free Zones, passing more laws that do nothing to stop the violence is not the answer, it is political bull pucky.

Yesterday, anti-gun California Senator Dianne Feinstein strode to the microphone demanding her colleagues pass a gun control bill — immediately — specifically her beloved “assault weapons ban.”

Powerful House Democrat Steny Hoyer urged his colleagues to “renew” the push in the House and Senate for gun control legislation. Hordes of gun control lobbyists have spread out on Capitol Hill today looking for new Republican and Democrat support for gun control legislation. But facts don’t matter to the gun-grabbers . . .

Whenever a tragedy — a revolting grave crime — is committed, gun-grabbers ALWAYS rush to “cash in.”

Ban the internet?

Do you want your children to have the same opportunity as you did when you were growing up?

Then listen up.

If you value your freedom, then you had better speak up otherwise soon you might find you no longer have the right to free speech, The Senate is considering a bill that is just plain wrong.

You might soon no longer be able to watch video on youtube because of this bill.

The problem with this law is that, it would result in censorship without the right to due process as it allows the DOJ and copyright holders to obtain court orders before accused sites have had a chance to defend themselves in court. Sites could be seized and services suspended simply based on the one-sided arguments proffered by the DOJ or copyright holders.

The world’s largest lobbying organization, the US Chamber of Commerce…

is supporting this and it is wrong.

along with the biggest lobbyists

representing the recording and movie industry, have ramped up their efforts to get PROTECT IP approved as quickly as possible.

Yes! I’ll become a Demand Progress sustainer today.
I can’t, but I’ll click here to chip in $5 or $10 today so you can keep fighting the Internet Blacklist Bill and protecting civil liberties.
But now the good news: Why is the Chamber having to go to such great lengths to ram their bill through Congress?  It’s because of Demand Progress members like you.  More from Techdirt:

This is the first stage of the endgame to get the law passed.  To be honest, I’m surprised they’ve even had to go this far, because from the beginning it looked like they had the easy support.  The fact that they felt the need to break out this little stunt shows that the opposition to PROTECT IP has actually drummed up enough noise that some politicians are concerned about the very real unintended consequences of the law.

Will you support our work by becoming a monthly Demand Progress sustainer?

Yes! I’ll become a Demand Progress sustainer today.
I can’t, but I’ll click here to chip in $5 or $10 today so you can keep fighting the Internet Blacklist Bill and protecting civil liberties.
Thanks so much for your continued support.

Tax the Rich but not GE?

How can you expect to tax the rich to pay for the poor, I thought robin hood was just a fairy tale, is this a personality disorder or an administration?

how can you expect to do the right thing for the American People when you do not do the right thing for everyone?

Spread the wealth, but not when its your buddy GE?

 

So I wonder what Ol, Joe would say about this deal,

can you say this is not the hope and change you voted for?

 

Just imagine if there were a flat tax, how much money would GE have to pay back to the American People?

What if there were a fair taxing system where lobbyists were actually made to pay taxes on what they spend?

Is this the hope and change you voted for?
