so you expect us to actually do anything about it?"
And it comes out AFTER the election; isn't that amazing?
Attention RWPP dirtbags and morons who like to scream about slavery in this country that ended about 150 years ago being an excuse for crap: THIS is what you should be yelling about.
Of course, the people taking and keeping slaves nowadays mostly aren't white and European; they're the kind of people the RWPP clowns excuse from all kinds from crap because of colonialism and so forth. It would make the clowns uncomfortable to come out against People Of Color on anything, it seems.
Kind of like the feminists who demanded "Something must be done!" about the way women were being treated in Afghanistan, yet they shit rabid raccoons when Bush DID do something(was it that they didn't actually want something done if it involved non-PC violence, or just that someone they didn't like do it, I wonder?).
Which brings up another thought:
Slavery in the American south screwed with labor markets and caused all kinds of problems, same as what's noted near the end of the article. Same crap is happening due to illegal aliens in this country; they're willing to work for wages others won't, which causes some employers to hire them cheap, which screws with the labor market and throws all kinds of other costs onto the states and federal government. And I consider a lot of the politicians helping the illegal alien lobby for the sake of influence, votes and damaging the US to be the moral equals of the bastards in the 1800's who defended slavery in the south. The only difference is the illegals could leave any time they want, but the dirtbags are making it worth their while to stay here and cause problems, paying them off with OPM.
Usually I try to refrain from bad language, especially when speaking of the current Oval Office occupant. However, in this case:
Screw you, you miserable little socialist bastard.
Speaking of socialist bastards, one of the big proofs of how badly our .gov is broken is that this idiot is still in office and wasn't prosecuted and thrown out of the House for what she did.
Also that a bunch of people are such fools that they'll keep voting for her.
How badly did Clinton's State Department and Obama's other minions(and probably he) screw up? This bad.
4 Americans, including an Ambassador, are dead and there will no
“disciplinary action” recommended? So it was a total clusterfuck and no
one in authority stepped up to deal with it because, that’s how business
was done. Shrug.
Another celebrity idiot who doesn't understand that the interwebs is FOREVER!, one way or another.
Just spoke with a friend who was ordering bullets. Not loaded ammo, bullets. The company he called is ten days to two weeks behind on shipping.
He said something about lots of people being backed-up, and was told that a customer who'd come in to pick up an order mentioned going by the Cabala's and Bass Pro in(I think) Reno, and the lines of people waiting to buy firearms, ammo and associated stuff were, well, amazing.
Something I'd like to see someone ask Obama: "Mr. President, considering the numbers of people buying guns, magazines(y'know, you call them 'clips'?) and ammunition, most of whom say flatly they will not surrender them, how many people are you willing to see killed or imprisoned in trying to enforce any ban that might be passed?"
Can you imagine his thoughts? And what he might say to try to talk around that?
Dr. Helen had a link to this the other day. One of the comments had two things I responded to:
...stricter laws are required... Also a federal data base for all people taking medication associated
with mental health must be set up and those taking medication forbidden
from legally purchasing weapons....
Over here in Greece it is almost impossible to own a weapon except a
shotgun for hunting and very few can have a handgun. Rifles are totally
illegal. Our problem here is that the government doesn’t have the money
to field a larger police force and criminals rob banks, stores, homes
and anything else using fully automatic AK-47s! We are outgunned by
criminals. It’s the total opposite of what is happening to the U.S.
Slowly we are approaching the same problem from the opposite side.
First, ANYBODY taking ANY meds for a mental health matter? So if someone is going through a bout of depression and is prescribed a med, they lose their 2nd Amendment rights?
I don't think so.
Not to mention the "Who sets the standards? How?" and all the holes just waiting in that mess.
On the last, I said that the situation he describes in Greece is just one more case in which honest people are mostly or completely disarmed while the bad guys have no problem getting whatever they want; that doesn't exactly help his 'stricter laws are required' statement.
I just got this by e-mail from Cheaper Than Dirt:
Cheaper Than Dirt! recently announced that it was temporarily suspending online
sales of firearms pending a review of its order processing and procedures. Well-known for its ability to process and ship orders within24 hours, online sales have skyrocketed to a point where it may take up
to 72 hours for firearms and other items to ship.
"In light of
recent events, we believe it is prudent to review our policies and
procedures to ensure we can continue to provide the products and
firearms our customers demand," said Chief Operations Officer Roberta
Wilson. "We will resume online sales once we update our process and
continue as we have always done by shipping firearms only to FFL
Ms. Wilson closed with, "As a long-time supporter of
