Mitts signed and issued a signing statement in support of a state Assault Weapons ban as Governor: “Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts”, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1, 2004 with legislators, sportsmen’s groups and gun safety advocates. “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”
It didn't, not at all! You just asked a question as I included my words in the mix of things.
Ah, that’s a good question so we know exactly how good his speech was - for him - or the good of America/Constitution; thus, it’s citizens.
Yeah, that's what I thought.
Romney spoke well today and should be commended for the bright distinction between his words and the crass narcissism of this president.
They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
Surely, he meant the abortion clinics when he spoke this/S.
And his actions.
That was his intention just using a tragedy to do it.
You thought wrong.
The continued pussification of Americans is astounding.
Tons of people in that theater had big-gulp cups filled with drinks. They had tubs of popocorn. Instead of lobbing them at the guy to at least throw him off, they ducked and ran, because that's what the pussification of America has conditioned them to do in principle AND in practice.
I don't know what I'd have done, but I like to think I'd have done the equivalent of what Todd Beamer did: "Let's roll." Not "Let's roll over." Not rolling over in principle to a statist Republican like Romney because Obama is just too scary, and not rolling over in practice to a poor bastard nutcase with a gun because he had a smoke bomb and body armor.
Having discussed this with some guys pretty well-trained in concealed carry, here's the deal: a .45 slug hitting that body armor would have at least staggered him. A .45 slug hitting that gas mask or his throat would have ended him. A .45 slug hitting his arm or his leg or his groin would have slowed him down. Smoke bombs and semi-darkness would have made it more challenging, but do you know what adrenalin often does to how people see in the dark? I know first-hand what it does.
Maybe a concealed-carry guy in that theater -- or several of them -- would have missed. But maybe they would have hit him; the better trained and cooler-headed they were, the more likely there would have been fewere dead and injured in that poor soul's rampage.
Romney deserves no more commendation than Obama. He's still a statist who is an agent of government tyranny and "roll over" pussification of American courage.
Presidents face all kinds of situations during their terms from tragedy to other things. Between the two he sounded like his comments were more sincere to me. I especially liked his reference to scripture. Something we don’t hear to often these days.
I also think Mitt Romney gave a very hearfelt statement. He was to have had a rally today, and he didn’t.
Yes, so do I. He said he began each morning w/prayer. He knew where to look for guidance and Who he really served. Now if he had the same kind around him... but he didn’t. His heart is pure but that doesn’t mean he can’t mess up. God looks at the heart.
Those who don’t have the same spirit as him will find any excuse to bad mouth him.
WTF else can he do? Not say anything? You are one miserable creature. Romney’s going to be the nominee. You obviously are not going to vote for him so your constant nitpicking bitching will not only NOT convince others to join “your team” but just seems to be a daily exercise in futility.
“Don’t let a crisis go to waste” isn’t just liberals’ motto. Some Freepers love it too, especially when it comes to bash Romney.
Of COURSE it is!
And against ME, too, and EVERYONE who has ALLOWED this evil travesty to continue in our country!
Over 47 million of our own citizens KILLED and we have the NERVE to look DOWN on NAZI Germany???
Oh yeah; I'd be the one to stop senseless killings in a theater in Colorado!!!
Grow some balls AMERICA!
CHOOSE to end the senseless killings in AMERICA!!!
Good luck with that!
It's up to AMERICA to REPENT; first!!!
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways; ,
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
I think 40-50 bullets, headed in his general direction; might have given him SOME kind of epiphany!
This is EXACTLY why we have a 'problem' with BULLIES in our schools and EVERYWHERE these days!
50 years ago, a 'bully' would have found themselves in serious need of some Socialised Medicine after the Tar&Feather group got through with him/her!
Now its, "Let's learn to talk to the bully and get him to quit."
Are these the same?
MORMONism says that this shooter canNOT be SAVED, canNOT have his sin atoned for by the JESUS MORMONism describes.
JESUS' blood is INADEQUATE to wash away the sin of mass murder; or even ONE murder, for thatg matter.
The perp's OWN blood must be shed.
This is why UTAH has a FIRING SQUAD available to render a death sentence in it's prisons.
This is lovingour neighbour as ourselves; if he needs help, help him; and if he wants salvation and it is necessary to spill his blood on the earth in order that he may be saved, spill it.
Any of you who understand the principles of eternity, if you have sinned a sin requiring the shedding of blood, except the sin unto death, would not be satisfied nor rest until your blood should be spilled, that you might gain that salvation you desire.
That is the way to love mankind.
Is BrighamYoung lying?
"For unbelievers we will quote from the Scriptures - "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God." Again - "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God."
I will now give my scripture - "Whosoever confesseth that Joseph Smith was sent of God to reveal the holy Gospel to the children of men, and lay the foundation for gathering Israel, and building up the kingdom of God on the earth, that spirit is of God; and every spirit that does not confess that God has sent Joseph Smith, and revealed the everlasting Gospel to and through him, is of Antichrist.......
Here's some MORE for MORMON's...
"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned; and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given, and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.
- JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)
It is true that the earth was organized by three distinct characters, namely, Eloheim, Yahovah, and Michael, these three forming a quorum, as in all heavenly bodies, and in organizing element, perfectly represented in the Deity, as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Again, they will try to tell how the divinity of Jesus is joined to his humanity, and exhaust all their mental faculties, and wind up with this profound language, as describing the soul of man, "it is an immaterial substance!" What a learned idea! Jesus, our elder brother, was begotten in the flesh by the same character that was in the garden of Eden, and who is our Father in Heaven. Now, let all who may hear these doctrines, pause before they make light of them, or treat them with indifference, for they will prove their salvation or damnation.
I have given you a few leading items upon this subject, but a great deal more remains to be told. Now, remember from this time forth, and for ever, that Jesus Christ was not begotten by the Holy Ghost.
- JoD 1:50-51 (April 9, 1852)
The rank, rabid abolitionists, whom I call black-hearted Republicans, have set the whole national fabric on fire. Do you know this, Democrats? They have kindled the fire that is raging now from the north to the south, and from the south to the north. I am no abolitionist, neither am I a proslavery man; I hate some of their principles and especially some of their conduct, as I do the gates of hell. The Southerners make the negroes, and the Northerners worship them; this is all the difference between slaveholders. and abolitionists. I would like the President of the United States and all the world to hear this.
Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.
- JoD: vol.10 p. 110: (March 8, 1863)
It looks like BrighamYoung was pretty good at bashings.
I was speaking of Bush, Jr. We have some idiots here who are still trashing Bush - four years later and still at it. They need a battery change, they are stuck on stupid. They probably voted for Gore and are still PO'd.
As far as Mormonism goes, they are godless and KNOW NOTHING but evil/untruths.
TN is a miserable creature because she's speaking her mind?
Let me tell you what a miserable creature is mittbot - a candidate who wants to lead our country and is PRO baby killing. The liberals have one and the other side of the aisle is hell bent on getting their own miserable creature!!
You know what else a miserable creature is - someone who KNOWINGLY LIES TO A NATION to deceive them! That's a low life miserable creature!
will not only NOT convince others to join your team
No one is convincing anyone, mittbot, as you can't CONVINCE anyone to HATE EVIL when they are ATTRACTED/DRAWN to it. The unteachable learn the hard way, when they start reaping what they have sown. Have fun when your 'harvest' comes in.
Now, that's too much. You should not insult others like that. Since you believe you can, it's not saying much for your religion.
It’s getting hot in here.
Excuse me but it is their choice to be godless and why would you think that's an insult to them? Shame on you for suggesting it - it would be the same as saying someone insulted me for saying I was God-fearing and I serve no man but GOD ALONE and His Son JESUS IS MY SAVIOR.
There is ONLY ONE GOD. And HIS WORD ONLY REIGNS.
And I don't have a religion but a RELATIONSHIP exactly how God always wanted it. I see you aren't knowledgeable about the things of God. Until you are, don't preach to me with that holier than thou attitude - a 'religious' trait.
If you can’t take the heat - leave. Wusses and trouble makers complain to stop anything that makes them uncomfortable. Yours has been noted.
Religious bigotry turns people into ugly creatures.
May I recommend some philosophy courses, or one on critical thinking?
....as you're doing now.
FR has guidelines concerning insults. They've chastised me for one remark - as they should you.
Yep. And now it's "Let's roll over to the bully because we sure don't want to fight him because that's dangerous and risky! So instead we'll talk to the bully and talk to each other about how awful it is that there are bullies in the world."
Instead of, "Fight back and run the bully off."
Going around calling people ‘religious nuts’ is a religious bigot, so stop projecting ugly creature.
You can recommend nothing to me. So you know what you can do with your philosophy - and critical thinking - seems it made you what you are and that’s a piss poor recommendation for anything! Ta ta - continue your roaming around and complaining about the heat when you bump into Truth!
The liberal mindset 'If you have ten dollars, so should I', "if you got a raise, so should I.' 'If they like you, they should like, me, also'
RE: Romney: Colorado shooting is ‘unspeakable tragedy’
I wish somebody would start talking abut MORAL EVIL in this day and age.
The problem is, the moment you start talking about evil, you also imply that there is good, that there is right and wrong.
People avoid using these words because they don’t want to sound judgmental.
Not to worry. Romney has a government solution for every problem.
We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts. I support them. I wont chip away at them. I believe they protect us and help provide for our safety. ~~Mitt Romney
Do like the MORMONs do!!!
Then get out of the kitchen!
No. Tragedy. If only guns weren’t around, this wouldn’t happen./sarc
What the Dems are looking for is a new Joe Camel. In 1996, the people had repudiated socialized medicine, tax increases, and the First Couple, but they found a scapegoat, Joe Camel, whom Big Tobacco was using to sell carcinogenic cigarettes to school children (back when I used to smoke, I found Camels entirely too harsh; for school children it would be doubly so, but no matter). So now they need a new phony issue to demagogue against, preferably a commodity available to the consumer. Presenting: Guns. It’s Big Guns and the Gun Lobby that’s marketing guns so they can make their evil profits by selling guns and bullets to psychotic killers who are looking to shoot up shopping malls and schoolyards. If only guns weren’t available, those psycho killers would go seek professional help, and not some chlorine and amonia to mix together and throw down an air vent. So it’s a tragedy, caused by guns. This will be at least one of the Dem strategies. And Mit will help them by calling it a “tragedy”. How tragic, that the presumptive nominee is so clueless.
The scroll feature is one I use frequently and I highly recommend it. It’s almost as good as an ignore button.
“He spoke well on this sad day.”
“The scroll feature is one I use frequently and I highly recommend it. “
Romney sounded much more presidential. Barry had to include himself in his comments on the shooting.
