Obama speaking now on TV...
"The vast majority of responsible gun owners support a ban on assault rifles and large capacity magazines..."
"I will use all the powers of my office to do what needs to be done to reduce gun violence..."
He's putting Biden in charge of a get-together of interested parties to come up with something to be presented to Congress in January. Realizes that part of the problem is "social."
Question from reporter on the fiscal mess...
“I realize that different parts of the country feel different about guns...”
On fiscal cliff: “Boehner has already admitted that tax rates need to go up. On cuts, we need to make sure they are ‘responsible’ and ‘balanced.’ Voters are looking for some compromise...
When do we march?
“The vast majority of responsible gun owners support a ban on assault rifles and large capacity magazines...”
Want to put that to a vote amongst “The vast majority of responsible gun owners...”?
Never was a “civil war” in this country.
There was an attempt at war for independence II, which was lost.
They could avoid the whole messy war business and let some states secede peacefully.
0bama wants to be Lincoln. He wants another “Civil War”.
“I don’t want to be blocked by idealogical positions that don’t make sense... I want to get this done but the Republicans need to make some additional changes in their position... I won’t allow a tax increase for millions of working families... this was debated during the campaign (and I won)... “
And he knows this how? Oh yeah, say a lie enough times to the sheeple and it becomes the truth.
Wrong solution, wrong problemo, Oblamo.
Bud’s is sold out, as well as the other shops I frequent (at least of anything I’d be interested in). Unintended consequences.
“The fiscal package that I’ve put forward is a real compromise by any definition, with real, tough spending cuts... the idea that the Speaker would give big tax breaks to people making $500K, $600K, $700K while punishing the middle class just defies logic... there is no explanation for that... we just need to get this done for the middle class that has had some wrenching times... we need common sense and this is a good test for it...”
Well, there was some good news!
Joe Bidden is leading the charge!
He mentioned a couple of areas, manly in west and south. that this country has had gun violence in the past few days but omitted any mention of the center of violence - CHICAGO!
“Last time there was a Civil War in this country, 600,000 people died.”
The most recent numbers of dead in the Civil War are 720,000.
I think the later number is very, very close.
Classic “no true Scotsman” fallacy. If you’re against it, you’re obviously not one of the “responsible” gun owners.
“You LIE!!” - Rep. Joe Wilson (my congressguy)
There are no gun owners who support a ban on so-called Assault weapons.
