Yes, seems there'll be a push for New gun Regulation or at Least Assault weapons ban. This, just in time to add to 2012 social turmoil where our own officials (gop) vowed, to go against our (& their) President (can you say Treason? Sure ya can) ....on, and on, and on..... Now NRA front and center, all the gun toating blow hards who have two cents of courage and spend it on fleating egos, round & round we go, again and again. Really? how small of a member/constitution do you have to have to need 100 rounds of amo at the ready? ... course there's always the "finally" senerio *shutter*.

We have sensible gun laws. Banning guns doesn't prevent criminals from getting them, they aren't using legal means to aquire them anyways. As for the incident in Colorado even without firearms he could've killed and injured just as many people, explosives are easy to make and cars are incredibly dangerous when running into pedestrians.

I cannot understand why the NRA is running American politics.

We need to do with guns what we've done with cigarettes. We have to make guns items that we scorn. That we know are lethal, just as cigarettes are.

Hey, if you can get away with shooting a Congresswoman without any gun law changes, why would Congress change gun laws when pions are shot?

You must belong to a well regulated militia then, and you use muskets and other weapons that go back to the 18th century.

As for the theories put out by right wing talk show hosts that this is a conspiracy by the Obama administration to get people mad and push for more gun control, what about all the mass killings, etc. under Republican Presidents? Is Obama the only President in history here? What short, convenient memories they must have. They are so far out there, many need to be committed.

How Republicans Will Get Rich Throwing Millions of Americans off Healthcare

The GOP healthcare bill is wildly unpopular.

In fact, the latest polls show that it has an approval rating of just 21 percent.

The CBO says that 51 million Americans would be uninsured under the Republican party's so-called healthcare plan if it becomes law.

So why are Republicans so devoted to forcing it down our throats?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
