  • Romney Renews His Support For Gun Control, 23 July: "That's the kind of legislation I like"

    Ah Yes, the bigotry card. Are you competing with Jesse Jackson or just aspiring to be like him? Its pathetic.

    Bigot: "One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ."

    Having a devoted love of country and not wanting to see it converted to some 3rd world, Socialist/Communist/Islamic hellholle (and taking to task those who appear willing to let this happen, for whatever reason) can hardly be considered "Bigotry."

    That is something we all expect the Left's use of "Alinsky Tactics" (especially Rule No 5: Using "Ridicule") and not what one expects from a fellow Freeper.

    OK, what else would you refer to "it" (Hatred) for all those who keep pounding Mittens and suggesting he is more eeevil, dangerous and more of a "Threat" than is Dear Leader in spite of not being able to produce a shred of evidence whereby Mitt has ever attacked our Constitution, shown any HATRED (or gone on an "apology tour") toward our Republic; has aligend himself with our sworn enmies, and worked diligently to affect "change" which is code word for harming, if not "DESTROYING" our Republic as we know it?

    Of course if you or any of your fellow Mitt/Mormon haters can produce same, I'll gladly reconsider my intent on voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

    While I admire her effort, all this "Hearts and Minds" crap is a complete exercise in futility. We ain't ever going to influence those poor, illiterate, people who are steeped in that 7th C. cult which dictates their everyday life and as long as they cling to their "Religion of Pieces" they (and almost every other Islamic Republic in the World) will not be forthcoming in joining the civilized, 21st Century, World.

    Yeah, but Mittens could best (and reallllly stick it to Dear Leader, Hillary and her Socialist State Dept and the Rat Party in general) and upstage B. Hussein, if only he has the "stones" to do so....

    All he has to do is while in Israel, is to say he recognizes the Capital as being Jerusalem and as President, this would be our (America's) official policy.

    Then it would be fun to see Carney squirm his way (as he tried unsuccessfully to do yesterday) out of that one.

    In fact they did exactly that, meeting with Stalin and giving him Eastern Europe (including Poland, for which Britain had gone to war originally).

    Yes, true, BUT, Roosevelt at the time was ailing and what was not known was the influence that the commie Alger Hiss had on FDR and how the outcome of the results were skewed in favor of that regime which he secretely worked for, the Evil Empire.

    Much the same can be said today as the Muslim Brotherhood insinuates itself (as it has been doing for some 50 years now) within every aspect of our Government Agencies (as well as our media, education system, courts, etc.) and the influence it has had on our Republic which if we don't wake up soon and face that reality and try to reverse the gains they have made, could easily speel our doom.

    Think of Barack Hussein Obama and his fellow travelers, the Socialists/Demo-Rats/Progressives/Libs/Commies (same o--same o) when reading the following:

    FAIR WARNING: America's Enemies Within

    "A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

    An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves against those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

    He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear." ...

    Every year, a number of companies come out with various gadgets to sell off to the military. Their open tests? Well...sometimes, they are rigged to make a big show and an enthusiastic viewer might come away that some new gadget is a four-star item...when the truth is that it’s marginally better than what they already bought and own.

    This software pitch might be better....or it might involved rigged results. The Army is in this test and evaluate mode. And the thing is....there really isn’t an unlimited budget anymore.

    Be that as it may, can you explain why the report was ordered "destroyed?"

    If what you (and aparently others) suggest is true, then there would have been no need to destroy the evaluation and let the results speak for themselves. That in itself is a a big red flag.

    Don't know if you ever served, but when it comes to the safety and lives of our Warriors, we should NOT be counting pennies or be worried about the "Budget," especially if there are ways to minimize casualties which exist and are not being considered or utilized...usually for political or worse, "monetary" consideration, i.e., that of companies/contractors having influence with the Pentagon or Congress.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk!

    So what?

    No big deal right?

    After all, no matter what we have witnessed in the past 3 1/2 years that this FASCIST, Neo-Commie, Hate-America, POS, Scumbag has done and based upon his own words, what he WILL do if reelected, we also know (from the handful of Mitt and Mormon Haters here) that Romney "will" do the same--or be even worse--so we might as well just all stay home or vote 3rd party.

    Yep, let's all have a nice big glass of Hemlock (or Kool Aid) and sign on to their "suicide pact."

    So sorry, no can do!

    While (yes, admittedly) the flip-flopping, RINO, Mittens "MIGHT" embrace and advance some (or even all) of Dear Leader's agenda and programs, we (and that includes those Freeps who keep delusionally comparing Romney with Beelzebub, unless they have a crystal ball) don't know for sure.

    On the other hand, we can say with 100% certainty what we we can expect under the B. Hussein Obama Regime and it ain't purty or healthy for the survival of our Republic or augur well for us Cons.

    Meanwhile, there is this from Drudge:

    'Muslim Brothers plotting overthrow of Gulf states'

    "Dubai police chief warns of "international plot" against Gulf states, says Iran, Syria and MB must know Gulf is a red line.

    It appears that those (myself included) who keep warning about the 1,400-year effort of Islamists at Global Hegemony and the dangers this vile, eeeeevil, cult, posing as a "religion" poses (most notably right here in the good ol' U.S. of A.) are ignored by most and dismissed as "fear mongers" or Islamaphobes in spite of the mountain of evidence we are exposed to daily.

    I only hope and pray that enough wake up before its too late.

    In my case, I certainly hope so. I'd hate to think all those disparaging remarks about that CLUELESS FAT BITCH, Big Sis and her Fascist, Neo-Commie Boss, Dear Leader are for the entertainment of Freepers only.

    Many Failed Efforts to Count Nation's Federal Criminal Law

    WASHINGTON—For decades, the task of counting the total number of federal criminal laws has bedeviled lawyers, academics and government officials.

    "You will have died and resurrected three times," and still be trying to figure out the answer, said Ronald Gainer, a retired Justice Department official.

    As Criminal Laws Proliferate, More Americans Are Ensnared

    In 1982, while at the Justice Department, Mr. Gainer oversaw what still stands as the most comprehensive attempt to tote up a number. The effort came as part of a long and ultimately failed campaign to persuade Congress to revise the criminal code, which by the 1980s was scattered among 50 titles and 23,000 pages of federal law.

    Justice Department lawyers undertook "the laborious counting" of the scattered statutes "for the express purpose of exposing the idiocy" of the system, said Mr. Gainer, now 76 years old.

    The project stretched two years. In the end, it produced only an educated estimate: about 3,000 criminal offenses. Since then, no one has tried anything nearly as extensive.

    The Drug Abuse Prevention and Control section of the code—Title 21—provides a window into the difficulties of counting. More than 130 pages in length, it essentially pivots around two basic crimes, trafficking and possession. But it also delves into the specifics of hundreds of drugs and chemicals.

    In 1998, the American Bar Association performed a computer search of the federal codes looking for the words "fine" and "imprison," as well as variations. The ABA study concluded the number of crimes was by then likely much higher than 3,000, but didn't give a specific estimate.

    "We concluded that the hunt to say, 'Here is an exact number of federal crimes,' is likely to prove futile and inaccurate," says James Strazzella, who drafted the ABA report.

    None of these studies broached the separate—and equally complex—question of crimes that stem from federal regulations, such as, for example, the rules written by a federal agency to enforce a given act of Congress.

    These rules can carry the force of federal criminal law. Estimates of the number of regulations range from 10,000 to 300,000. None of the legal groups who have studied the code have a firm number.

    "There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime," said John Baker, a retired Louisiana State University law professor who has also tried counting the number of new federal crimes created in recent years.

    "That is not an exaggeration."

    SCARRY!!!

    There are only 2 reasons why any Republi-Tard in Congress would not oppose the Muslim Brotherhood: Ignorance of who they are and their "stated" agenda (to replace our Constitution with Sharia) and their is no excuse for this considering the amount of data available or (2) they have "benefited" from some sort of contribution from sources which are Islamic related.

    I guess as in the case of the "Weeper of the House" one could also add a 3rd: he is a Girly-Guy WUSS who is afraid of his own shadow or what others (most notable the MSM) will say about him; thus his resorting to his default attitude (FOLDING LIKE A CHEAP SUIT) and taking the path of least resistance thus spouting all the Multicultural/PC, BS.

    With regards to "RATS" well their natural inclination is to support anyone who's intentions are the same as theirs ("The enemy of my enemy is my friend") and that is the destruction of Capitalism, if not our Republic itself.

    IF you ever want to shut up a Lib/Dem simply ask the this question:

    While there are MANY "RINO's" (and we can all name several off the top of our heads) and clarify that by qualifying that the definition means "REGULARLY" voting with the "opposite" (meaning the RAT) party to support their legislation or voting against one's party's (Republi-tards) proposals or agenda.....

    WHY are there no (NONE) DINO's and when they start to get defensive and sputter, simply ask them to name one...and no, Lieberman does not count and Zel Miller (the LAST one I can remember) has long ago retired.

    Meanwhile.....

    Bill O'Reilly has gone completely off the rails as he continued tonight to rail against people being able to walk into any gun shop (or gun show) and walk out with a "Fully Automatic" weapon or....wait for it....a "BAZOOKA!"

    He attacked the ability for ANYONE to purchase what he refers to "Heavy Weapons," and he is so uninformed, he keeps saying these people who buy AK's and other weapons and large amounts of ammo (he mistakenly reported that the shooter in Aurora purchased 60,000 rounds as opposed to 6,000) to the FBI, not even knowing that there already is a Fed Agency responsible, the ATF.

    What a Maroooon!
