A reasonable gain in procuring measures to constrain the use or commission of guns rests in the hands of peace officers, who display the appropriate, reasonable understanding that its status should convey entirely 'peace officer'.
Like an endless loop of old re-runs, here we go again. Yesterday, in Umpqua, Oregon, yet another deranged white boy takes it to other white people. However, no talk of “white on white” crime. In fact, it seems that the only group of people that have such a racially designated criminalistic are black people. Despite the fact that most people, in the United States, are murdered by members of their own ethnic group “black on black” crime is unique, and ubiquitous, in its terminology. I wonder why?
I am sick of people standing down in the fight to support Bernie Sanders, because they are afraid that sometime down the road something they say might damage Mrs. Clinton's chances of victory. Please stop it. If Mrs Clinton wins the primary, and faces a Republican, do you think for a minute that anything factual will matter a bit in such a depressing contest???
Winning the primary for Sanders is essential to saving this country. Stop fretting about collateral image-damage to people who do not deserve the office or our support.
If corporations are people, they should be forced to declare their citizenship. If they declare themselves to be citizens of the United States, they should be taxed fully on all profits made here in the United States. If they do not--if they claim to be citizens of any other country--then they are denied access to our State Department & military.
NRA Umpqua, OR: Numb?! No! More like resigned to the fact that there will be more shootings until you lurid assholes in Washington give us Campaign Finance Reform.
Speaking for myself, I’m not numb to NRA facilitated shootings as much as I am resigned and deeply sadden by the fact that the People can’t do anything about it with our moneyed government.
After an American mass murder, many gun owners immediately seek to identify with the criminal, expressing the desire not to have their guns taken away, because they're law-abiding citizens. This happens even when the murderer was not a gun owner (e.g. the Newtown shooter, who stole the guns he used from his mother), but merely a gun carrier. But without even gun ownership to connect them, why do they put themselves on that side of the line?
Shouldn't it disgust more of us that the President had to say this one word, "routine".."
Hell's bells ... Or have we lost our ability to feel this much? Pres. Obama said he "hopes and prays that he wouldn't have to come out again" to discuss another shooting like todays. Let us all bow our heads n' kneel with the President on this. All of us.
Freedom of association is a fundamental right guaranteed by the US Constitution. It is a right that is every bit as sacrosanct as the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. As a fundamental right that means we are free to travel from place to place to associate for various purposes like doing business or visiting our friends and family. The primary mode for that travel is the automobile and so we extend the principle of freedom of association to the use of motor vehicles.
The Constitutional Amendment to limit monies (gifts) in politics is a non-partisan issue for voters, but the politicians supporting the Amendments are virtually 100% Democrats. Make sure in the coming election in 2016 every politician is asked a yes or no question, “Do you support an Amendment to the constitution to get money out of politics?” If the candidate is the incumbent ask why their name is not listed as a cospo

Nixon White House Considered Nuclear Options Against North Vietnam, Declassified Documents Reveal
This is the shortest post I have ever, and will ever, have. The title of the post is a quote from Thom Hartmann's program today, October 1, 2015, at 1306 hours (E.S.T.). Thom was referring to some newspaper (or other media outlet) attempting to assasinate, distort and neutralize, facts on where he stands on environmental issues with personal attacks on him. Never any argument of logic, the facts, nor the evidentiary validity of his positions; which, necessarily, validates his position by default...if nothing else.
If I was a Republican I would be looking for a rock to crawl under. Just when we may have thought that there couldn't be any more cracked pots to take over from the Michelle Bachmans, Sara Palins and other psychos, along comes Kevin McCarthy.
Whatever is in those e-mails is sure making Hillary act like they got her by the short hairs….and with what is being revealed so far, it looks like they do.
