The same thing can be said for liberals as well. Lumping everyone into categories is one of the reasons that this country is falling apart.

I am certainly not a liberal, but I will respect their viewpoint if they respect mine.

Liberals are not really the problem in this country. I know I will catch hell for this, but read up on the definition of a true liberal.

The problem is the Socialist Commie Cxxksuckers like the one we have in the White House. These left wing mutants are destroying this country, little by little.

Maybe I could be considered a liberal, after all.

"Liberalism (from the Latin liberalis)[1] is a political ideology or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality.[2] Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally liberals support ideas such as capitalism (either regulated or not), constitutionalism, liberal democracy, free and fair elections, human rights and the free exercise of religion.[3][4][5][6][7]"

Are you Obamanoids on the same page?. I don't even think so.

Obamanoids favorite slogan, If it's for free, it's for me!!!

<quoted text>yep CREDIT....loans they cannot pay back! life happens already and many are buying on credit what they should not be....they were already pretty much stretched too thin money wise! needs and wants are TWO different things entirely when it comes to debt!!!!!!!
The worst thing Texas ever did was passed the law where home owners could borrow against their home equity. I used to work at a bank and you would not believe how many people would come in and take out home equity loans to pay off credit card debt of $10,000 -$20,000, or more. These were not young, stupid, immature people who didn't know better, who hadn't learned how to manage their money. They were middle aged couples. If you are stupid enough to get yourself into that much credit card debt in the first place, and put your home up to pay off that debt, you will charge up those credit cards again. After years in the banking industry it became very clear to me, that there is a large percentage of the population that has no business handling their own finances and needs a money manager and a monthly allowance. People that have no savings at all, and keep their checking accounts overdrawn. How can people NOT understand when you buy that $3.00 coffee and you don't have any money in your account, that $3.00 coffee has now cost you $23.00, or more, depending on your banks fees and charges.

Republicans across the USA are offsetting their budget deficits by selling out our democratic infrastructures. Exposing their standard policies of failure. Short term recovery for a long, long, long terms of ever increasing debt. From highways to byways, prisons, municipal parking and so on and so on. Selling to highest bidder. Party First ideology is at best a juvenile immature imperialistic status.
Unnecessary necessities are forced down the consumer tax payer . You now work for living or do you live to work? Another example of right-wing-nuts forcing their strategies for us to purchase unnecessary necessities comes to light time and time again. Tragedies to burst forth here there and every where.

Is it not Arizona that has the most liberal laws on gun control? 18 year olds can purchase weapons in unlimited amounts! Assault rifles?$ 5,000 $10,000,$100,000 worth of weapons that mysteriously appear in the drug cartels.
Arizona could be described as an oxymoron state on gun control, with their anti immigration ideologies. Providing legally purchased weapons to the very forces they oppose. Back to the gun runners of yesteryear selling guns to the Indians.
NRA responsible? Of course not.. Yeah Right!
Facilities for the mentally disturbed near extinction. Jails to be used as substitutes to the mental institutions? Something here is just not logical in our conclusions for the solutions we prescribe to at present.
Thus examples of tragedies will continue to emerge. A sane intelligent solution to prevent these abominations’ is required.
With such abuses we are required to take defensive measures at what cost?
NRA taken to the margins of abusive predatory selling. Ex. Arizona’s liberal gun laws that allow an 18 year old to purchase an unlimited amount of firearms.$5,000,$10,000 $100,000 ? Legal weapons purchases are found in the cartels hands! Mental institutions in USA near extinction. Jail is its substitute. Educating the mentally handicap, to a life of hate and crime. Mix the two and viola, tragedy. Again at what cost? Who is Forced to pay these abominations of the regressive republican Party First destructive policies.?

My point is that the left can't wait to point fingers every time they have a chance to.

They are already screaming about gun control over this latest tragedy but don't want to bring up that this time a Democrat
went off the deep end.

Look at the way they started playing the blame game over the Arizona shooter and had to back off.

I think something smells like an agenda about this whole thing. As long as people aren't smart enough to think like Americans,
we will never know the truth.

Fast and Furious is a good example.

Did you like your argument do much you decided to type it twice?
So you say that the NRA and arizonas gun laws are responsible for the guns that the cartels are using? What percentage of those weapons that the cartel have came from central or south America? What percentage came from the fast and furious scandal? I bet the percentages are pretty high, but the left leaning media won't look into that, because it doesn't fit their gun control agenda.
If banning private gun ownership works so well to curb gun violence, then why does England have such high gun crime rates? Do you know that the rate of gun violence has increased since they effectively banned gun ownership? The only ones who have guns now are criminals, who don't care about laws in the first place. They had guns before the law, and they still have them now. So what good does it do to ban gun ownership?
More gun laws aren't the answer, criminals don't care about laws. Deal with the ones who break the existing laws.

Oswald killed JFK, period. He was a well trained shooter who had a perfect kill zone and got lucky. Thats it. No third gunnan on the grassy knoll, no one else, no huge plots, no secret agents, no conspiracies.

The movie theater in Colorado is a gun free zone where everyone but Holmes was obeying
the law.

So much for gun control. The unarmed movie goers were like shooting fish in a barrel
for the big brave leftist killer.

At least here in Houston, Holmes wouldn't have made it out of the place alive. Between the CHL holders and the drug
peddlers, Holmes would have been swiss
cheese after the first round.

Houston has more people dead and injured from stabbings and shootings in a month than that heavily armed coward caused in
Colorado with all of his weapons.

On another thread as SOON as it was mentioned that a tea party guy had done it I posted an IMMEDIATE rejection of that before ABC EVEN retracted.Why did I do that when I disagree with the tea party on a number of issues? Because i'm not CRAZY enough to think that the tea party favors MASS MURDER!! Had everybody gone nuts? Can't anyone think without the media telling them what to think? Think for yourselves! At least guys like DEFIANT and NRH try to be sane and as objective as possible.

In 2011 198 people were murdered in Houston.The lowest number since 1965 WHEN THE POPULATION WAS TWO THIRDS LESS! I recall the number being over three hundred at times.I'm in favor of concealed carry.

C'mon now, we all know banning guns will end all gun crimes and murders right? Just look at all the shining examples like Chicago, new York, Washington dc, etc. they all banned guns and they don't have anymore gun crime right?

Oh yeah, that is exactly what we want, gun battles in the middle of a dark theater full of women and children.....Then just how many deaths would there be??? A hell of a lot more than 12! And just how do you think those movie goers with Concealed weapons license and their fire arms on them were going to kill that nut job? Have you not been listening to the news???? He was in full gear... vest, legs, helmet, throat, groin protection, gas mask...So he was bullet proof and the gas wasn't bothering him...So there would have been half blinded (from the tear gas) armed citizens firing in the dark at anything that moved....Geeeeeeeez grow some brain cells...!!!!
