Liberals Sink to New Low with “2nd Amendment” Accusations

Just when you think you’ve seen the Democrats sink to the lowest point possible, here they come to prove that their capacity for evil knows no depths. The media (which is really, at this point, just an arm of the Democratic Party) has misconstrued Donald Trump’s remarks since last summer, but they’re now trying to see just how far they can stretch reality until it breaks. This, by the way, is the exact mindset they injected into their coverage of the Black Lives Matter phenomenon, which is part of why that movement has been rejected by so many Americans. You can get away with years and years of subtle deception, but most Americans are still alert enough to detect outright bullshit.

And what else can you call this latest Trump controversy?

If you follow politics at all, you hardly need a rundown; every media outlet in the country has covered this story from one angle or another. But, like “they’re sending drugs, they’re sending crime,” this appears destined to become one of Trump’s most frequently-repeated quotes. So why not read them again:

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Trump said of Hillary at a rally in Wilmington, N.C. “Although the Second Amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Okay, so let’s take away all the nonsense first of all. The idea that Trump meant this in context of a political movement is almost as silly as what his critics are saying, which is that he was calling for Hillary Clinton’s assassination. If you watch the video, it’s very clear that he’s making a sly comment of some kind. The press releases from the campaign are ludicrous, but then again, Trump is probably stunned that he’s having to defend himself from these asinine accusations.

Now, only Trump himself knows what he truly meant, but here’s the thing. If he meant what the liberals say he meant, then he’s doing more than speculating on Hillary’s assassination. He’s also exposing a very dim view of “Second Amendment people.” If that’s his idea of a “joke,” it would mean he thinks of his supporters as the terrifying, violent monsters the media says they are. OR, it means that he’s a terrifying, violent monster himself who would actually find it amusing if such a thing happened.

So to believe the media’s version of this, you have to believe Trump is either a fraud or a sociopath.

And wouldn’t they love to get you to that point?

But the simpler explanation is the one the media really doesn’t want to accept. In this interpretation, Trump was indeed making a dark, violent joke, but not the one they think he was making. He was simply saying that if Hillary’s liberal Supreme Court starts down the road to forcible confiscation, “Second Amendment people” might not be as helpless as they imagined.

To liberals, this interpretation is invisible because they don’t understand that this is the foundation of the Second Amendment. This is the whole thing, right here, what Trump is talking about. It’s not about hunting or personal protection or any of this other stuff. Those are all well and good and important, but they aren’t what the Second Amendment is really about. The Second Amendment – like the rest of the Bill of Rights – is about freedom from a tyrannical government. It is – like the rest of the Bill of Rights – a ray of light the Founders poked through their own power – a ray of true freedom. Not freedom bestowed; freedom eternal.

Democrats believe we must be saved from our own freedom, and they are blind to the millions of Americans who are quite willing to die for the sake of keeping it.

That freedom exists no matter how many liberal judges Hillary Clinton puts on the Supreme Court, and no sane “Second Amendment person” would be driven to violence were that to happen.

But yes, when push comes to shove and the edict comes down and the enforcers show up at the door…then…then things might indeed get interesting. When it comes down to a moment’s choice – freedom or enslavement – then there is, indeed, something you can do. Trump’s words resonate with anyone who understands this truth, and the fact that he would even allude to it shows that he has the heart of the Founding Fathers beating within him.

  1. THE MEDIA sinks to new lows to prop up Hillary and dismantle the 2nd Amendment..

    The more they get away with, the more emboldened their propaganda gets.

  2. The liberals are going to sink so low that soon they may be six feet under.
    It’s just about time for war; a war they will not survive.

  3. With any luck there won’t be any need to fear the gash, $hitlery, getting into office. That putrescent POS looks like she might not make it all the way to November. Watch the short video in this link and let me know what you think…

  4. TRUMP voters are supporting their “Child Rapist in Chief” : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944.html

    • At this point it hasn’t been proven to be true whereas on the other hand former President Clinton had multiple people accuse him of rape going back to his days in Arkansas and people still voted for him and his wife enabled him. He is considered a serial rapist and she condoned it and still does so what does that make her.

    • You wish!!

    • Not too long ago I recall all the libtatds saying, “It’s just about sex – no big deal”. Come to think about it, another Clinton was involved with that too.

    • You weren’t a child then and you know it! Besides you giving a man a blow job isn’t really sex!

    • What amazes me is that dumdamcRATS cannot think of ANYTHING to throw at someone to smear his reputation but sex. They have done it with EVERYONE they want to destroy for years and the stupid people STILL act like having sex is the ONLY crime in the WORLD. Selling nation destroying secrets to our ENEMIES is NOTHING. Murdering DOZENS of people that knew too much is NOTHING. Stealing art objects and antique furniture from the White House is NOTHING. Defending the rapist of a 12 year old girl and winning is NOTHING (Oh, sex is right when it serves her ambitious, career forwarding purposes). Refusing to send military help to Americans under fire and all of them die is NOTHING. Excepting illegal campaign contributions from foreign leaders and businesses is NOTHING. But you let two grown people drop their drawers for a few minutes and it’s EARTH SHATTERING to our national freedoms and WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. The average voter seems to be completely unable to think for his/herself, completely unable to listen to what both candidates have to say and then make their own decisions. If our founding fathers had been so stupid WE would NOT HAVE a free?? country to even consider having a vote. Other countries are NOT so blessed and ours is not going to be very much longer.

    • You were not a child then dummy!

  5. The liberals are frantic to find something with which to attack Trump. So, now they are inventing motivation. Instead of working themselves up into this panicked lather, maybe they should look at the real problems Hillary has – the actual deaths of associates and opponents, her unstable health problems and her problem developing her own agendas, not merely parroting Obama’s.

    • Actually there is so much wrong with this dickhead, it’s hard to know where to begin. Oh, congrats on your lobotomy.

    • Three days ago, FIFTY (50) “GOP” National Security Advisors condemned tRump… The same GOP that you TeaTurds support: http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/08/politics/republican-national-security-letter-donald-trump-election-2016/

      • We do NOT support these RINOs they are NO DIFFERENT than the seditionist demoncraps that want their $$$$ and power and to hell with the American people. Tea Partiers do NOT support them!

        • I keep seeing them play up these so called top republicans. Just because they are very well known doesn’t mean they are the best in the party. Most of these republicans that are named are just well known traitor to the people that put them in power. Som get reelected to keep from getting a democrat because the better person on the right won’t get RNC support.

        • They are and have been just another cog in the RINO/Democrat establishment that has been a total thorn in the side of our country and my way of life since Regan left office.

          Throw the rascals out!

          Trump for the White House
          Clinton for the BIG house

        • B.S: You Tea-Turd Terrorists were licking their butt-holes until 3 days ago… ALL 50 are ”’GOP”’ former national security advisors with BRAINS, not ONE Democrat… Obviously, HUNDREDS of years of combined high security experience means nothing to tRump and you Boneheads. Your Stupidity is beyond measure, and comprehension…!!! All 50 realize that tRump as President would end life in this country as we know it, and they all had a lot of BALLS to stand up to know not a thing Traitor Trump…

          • roundponda, all 50 are iving off the tax payers and have not worked a day in their lives, They must laugh at your stupid comment.

      • If they were ‘real’ GOP patriots, they’d be supporting their party’s nominee. As they are now, they are merely serving as minions of the DNC. They may be American patriots, but not GOP patriots. And incidentally, where is their resounding condemnation of Obama, or Hillary? Are you telling me they would prefer her to Trump? Never mind, I’m thinking you’re ‘DNC’ all the way anyway, so you wouldn’t answer that honestly.

        And don’t try to make it sound any better than that. You can’t. Bush was given Cheney – who was not a candidate for anything, as a handler when he was given the nomination. Cheney apparently ran the White House for 8 years because Bush had to be dried out all the time. (I was no fan of either of them, in case that was not clear.) But the party could have given Trump someone to keep tabs on him too. Or maybe they did? It was a bit odd the way he suddenly came up with Pence, after making nice with Newt and Christy.

        Anyway, if they’re “national security experts” why are they publishing their names? Shouldn’t these guys be sort of ‘secret’? You know, as in what security is supposed to be about? And precisely what percentage of all ‘national security experts’ is 50? I’d be impressed if it was like, 66%, but I suspect it’s more like 2% – or less. How many of those experts are Republicans who DO support Trump? I’ve not see that number either, but then, the squeaky wheel is the one that gets the grease, isn’t it?

      • tHEY ARE NOT REPUBLICAN YOU IDIOT.

      • Yep, the same RINOs that got us into the mess we are in right now.

        I give them credit for telling the truth and telling what they are really about for the first time in their political lives. – Wounder how many RINO moles there are still lurking out there

        • I’m glad to see somebody on the right is FINALLY admitting that is was the Republican Party that “got us into the mess we are in right now”.

      • Michael Dennewitz

        And yet another shit for brains blocked! ??

      • Awaitingtherapture

        That is why all the career politicians are in such a panic. They know they will be out of a job come November if Trump ,,SORRY, WHEN, Trump wins .

    • Very good point. It almost appears she is following the agenda of the DNC for the chance to be their puppet even if we already knew that. It really wouldn’t be a Clinton administration but a continuation of the Obama’s. She gets the label but it probably is all she wants.

    • Think about it. There is not one single good thing they can say about the Cackling Witch so all they have left is to say negative things about Trump.

      Trump for the White House
      Clinton for the BIG house.

      • Trump says enough negative things. Nobody needs to help him. He just opens his mouth and stupidity spits out. You morons buy it.

        • Trump might SAY some bad things(according to you), but Killary DOES Bad things (according to proof!)!

            Obummer has done a great job with Health Care,
            but that is a whole different subject.

          • Yes he has. He’s gotten us closest to universal health care.

          • You should move to Venezuela, I hear they have a nice socialist government there that you seem to want. We don’t need universal health care. We need congress to reverse the laws that stop us from purchasing insurance across state borders, increasing competition and lowering the cost to the consumer.

          • I’ve been all over South America, and Venezuela’s problems have nothing to do with their system of government. It’s more complicated than that.

          • It has everything to do with their form of government. Greece socialist nation – bankrupt, France socialist nation – struggling under the weight of losing tax payers as businesses and people leave.

          • You’re really dumb. Talk about uneducated.

          • Yes, we need universal health care. We consistently rank as the worst health care of all developed nations:

          • No we don’t. It is not my responsibility to provide for your health care nor anyone else.

          • Yes, we do have the worst health care system in the world. It is rated this way consistently. The World Health Organization has voted the US the worst health care in the developed world, year after year.

          • Yes it is. It is the responsibility of everyone. In fact, if someone doesn’t have health insurance, YOUR tax dollars pay their health care.

          • Why don’t you move elsewhere, and take your guns with you? They serve no function, nor purpose, and your owning a gun is a threat to MY life. I won’t tolerate it.

          • This is my nation and I served to protect and defend it against people such as yourself. I took and oath To Protect and Defend the Constitution of The United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic. You are an enemy of The United States Constitution.

          • Hey dumbass. Japan is protect by firearms. Americans with firearms.

          • Hey, dumbass (you missed a comma), Japan doesn’t allow firearms, and their police don’t even carry them. You’ve never been there, have you?

          • Japan is protected by the U.S. Armed Forces. Take careful note of the “Armed” part of that. And if you knew anything at all about history, you would know that it would be a violation of the Japans surrender to the U.S. at the end of WWII to own a firearm. You failed at trying to utilize Japan as an example.

            This seems like a no-brainer (no pun intended), but research shows that the more religious you are the less intelligent and educated. I was astounded to know that this is also true of level of IQ. In other words, if you have a lower IQ you are more likely to be religious-ouch!

            http://www.humanreligions.info/intelligence.html

            If you believe in god, you are more likely to be less intelligent than those of us who do not believe:
            A new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades
            has concluded that religious people are less intelligent than
            non-believers. A piece of University of Rochester analysis, led by Professor Miron Zuckerman, found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies.

            According to the studyentitled, ‘The Relation Between Intelligence and Religiosity: A Meta-Analysis and Some Proposed Explanations’, published in the ‘Personality and Social Psychology Review’, even during early years the more intelligent a child is the more likely it would be to turn away from religion.

          • I once was staying in Baltimore as a judge in a piano competition. I took the train to DC on a Friday night. I was dressed in a suit and tie. When I returned to Baltimore I used my phone app to guide me to the home where I was a guest. It took me into a neighborhood far worse than Harlem. I was the only white guy in sight and dressed to the tee in a dangerous area and waiting for the public bus to come. The cops drove by twice and looked at me as if to wonder what I was doing there. I was only moderately concerned. I’m positive you would have been shivering in your boots. When the bus came, I rode it for half an hour and was again the only white person in sight. A fight broke out at the back of the bus and the driver threw them off. You are too much of a coward to even attempt it. Next time you’re in Baltimore I dare you to walk five blocks North from the Amtrak station and see how you would act. Just remember: I was in a suit and tie.

          • The 2nd amendment will be eviscerated. Wait and watch. All it takes is one Supreme Court judge. Trump is right about that.

          • The SC can not circumvent the U.S. Constitution. In fact to change the 2nd Amendment would take an Article V Convention of the States. The 2nd Amendments purpose to prevent and stop if necessary by force tyranny. You may want to be a slave to the socialist / communist regime currently in the WH, millions of Americans and many of are vets don’t. Now go put down your crack pipe.

          • Just how are you going to fight? You don’t believe in firearms. Since there are over 300 million legal owners of firearms, good luck.

            Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” – George Washington

            The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.” – Alexander Hamilton.

            “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson.

            “To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason.

            “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin.

            “A free people ought to be armed.” – George Washington.

            “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” – Thomas Jefferson.

            “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” – George Washington.

          • Firearms serve no function in 2016.

          • They most certainly do. Do you know why the Japanese never invaded mainland U.S. or any other nation for the fact? Because the American people are armed. Americans need them more than ever considering the what ISIS has planned ( just look at France) and the political climate of this nation.

          • They most certainly do not. You’re an idiot. The Japanese found a closer target in Hawaii, that’s the only reason they didn’t come here.
            What a moron you are.
            You’re also really unattractive. No offense.

          • Am I supposed to give a fuck if you think I’m attractive or not? I have no problem getting laid by WOMEN.

          • No offense, but you’re really creepy looking. Are you one of those heterosexual men who molest boys? I think it’s time to block you. You talk too much.

          • What’s the matter the little boy can’t handle the facts, so you have to make things up as usual for a libtard? I’ll bet if we were face to face, you wouldn’t talk shit like that. Because I would lay you out.

          • Half right! First sentence is false, second one is correct. So your answer is to make this a unfree country???? Your logic doesn’t compute. Your whole argument has been to make this whole country a gun free zone. Using your logic we would all still be a part of the British empire! Guns can come from outside the U.S. too??? So those who ignore the law would still have guns, just like in Chicago or Washington DC. Your logic would lead to chaos!

          • Your logic is creating chaos, so it’s time to try mine. Incidentally, where do Mexican drug cartels get their guns?

            The USA.

          • That massacre occurred in a gun-free zone. That’s why. Have you noticed that almost all of the recent massacres occurred in gun-free zones? That’s why gun-free zones will never work.

          • We agree that gun free zones won’t work. We need a gun free society. The odd thing is: why were there two guns on site with the shooting started if Orlando was a gun free zone? One of them was a hired security guard, and off duty cop.

          • A gun free society will never happen, because when you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns. Making the entire US a gun free zone won’t work either for that reason. I’ll have to go and read up on that story but my guess is that the security guard & the off-duty cop were ordered not to engage until the police got there?

          • No, the off duty officer actually exchanged fire with the gunman prior to the gunman taking hostages in the rest room. It is little known that the security guard was armed and on duty. There was an additional good guy with a gun on site. In the Dallas shooting an entire police force couldn’t stop one bad guy with guns. They had to blow him up with a bomb.

          • “…gunman taking hostages…” which probably explains why they didn’t shoot him. I’ll have to read up on that other one.

          • You are correct. The police didn’t want more casualties. But the securely guard actually did shoot at the shooter and wasn’t able to stop him. This has not been widely reported and is virtually unknown:
            http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/06/13/trump-just-said-good-guy-gun-stopped/

          • Was the security guard trained? Training makes all the difference.

          • He was an off duty cop, so yes, he was highly trained. Don’t forget that an entire armed police force in Dallas couldn’t stop one bad gun with guns. It took hours to end it.

          • That guy in Dallas was an Army reservist. He probably had better training than a typical police officer. In any case because crime will never disappear & because criminals will always have guns regardless of laws (that’s why they’re called criminals) guns will always be needed for protection. Even though you won’t agree & refuse to accept that guns also save lives, nothing will change until the criminal element in society completely disappears & we become like the society on the Star Trek shows.

          • Try reading what others write:
            “There were two good guys with guns that couldn’t stop the Orlando massacre”

          • I did read about this massacre, which is how I know that it was in a gun free zone. Maybe the “gun free zone” part of the equation had something to do with the good guys not being able to stop the bad guy? The bad guy was a Muslim terrorist & even Obama admitted that it’s almost impossible to stop someone who’s determined to die.

          • The bad guy was an American, a biggoted American who shared right-wing hate for hmosexuals. He obviously had been well-brainwashed with “conservative” ideals.
            Manteen is not the first American mass-murderer. He won’t be the last. It is something America is quite famous for.

          • Wow making things up again I see. Yes he was American, but he was Islamic and a ISIS sympathizer.

          • Another Islamophobe. Yawn.

          • Yet another phobia made up by a libtard and doesn’t exist. Despising a particular group that has sworn to kill Americans, does not equal fear. So once again you feeble mind has failed you. Phobia is the fear of.

          • The bad guy (Manteen) was a bigoted MUSLIM, & it’s a well-known FACT that Muslims hate homosexuals. This had NOTHING to do with right wing “hate” nor conservative ideals & EVERYTHING to do with ISLAM brainwashing. Stop being a moron. No one on the right hates homosexuals. We just don’t want them forcing us to accept & cater to their perverted lifestyle choices. & FYI mass shootings have happened in other countries too, genius.

          • Maybe you should start calling it what it really was. An act of terrorism, by an ISIS sympathizer.

          • And was a terrorist attack, by an Islamic Isis sympathizer.

          • That too.

          • Did not even try to stop thw massacre.

          • I guess it is time to ignore this dolt. He would take away everyone’s rights for his own irrational fear. What he doesn’t recognize is that once that happens, the only ones with guns would be the criminals. Then we would all be defenseless. He has no concept of what it takes to remain a free society. I spent 31 years in the military defending his right to be ignorant. His ignorance is the greatest threat to all our freedoms.

          • You obviously haven’t ever studied American history or World history. Guns have been protecting you and the rest of us for over 240 years. Why do you think the Second Amendment was added to the Constitution to begin with? While you sit in your comfortable home enjoying your life, others are out protecting your freedoms. Your ignorance (not stupidity, but lack of knowledge) is overwhelming. But after seeing how you spelled freedoms, it is obvious you don’t really appreciate the rights you do have and that is really ignorant and this time I do mean it as “stupid”!

          • I have studied history and recent history points to one fact:

            Guns don’t provide protection.
            Guns serve no useful purpose.
            Gun violence is out of control.

          • No you haven’t! Whatever you have been reading it isn’t American history or World History. Although I agree that gun violence, in the context you mean, is out of control. The problem is that your supposed solution would only add to the violence. If criminals have a choice between invading a home that is gun free or one that has an armed owner, I know which one they would choose and it isn’t the latter one. Guns as a minimum provide a deterrent to crime and as a practical matter my rifles have provided me a useful purpose as evidenced by the venison in my freezer. So what might be true for you is not for me. You have no right to limit my rights just for your convenience or unfounded fear. You have a perfect right to limit your rights if you wish, but not mine, as long as I don’t threaten yours. You attempting to limit my rights might just force me to defend mine. Think that over.

          • Gun violence is only out of control in such cities as Chicago where the toughest gun restrictions are. Where citizens aren’t allowed to protect themselves against those that would seek to do them harm. That is the reality of recent history. You only see gun violence out of control in Democrat controlled cities that have “gun free” zones. That is a fact and reality.

          • You’re clueless. Gun violence in Chicago has everything to do with drugs, dumbo. It’s about turf.

          • Gun free zones don’t work, and guns don’t provide protection to anyone. There were two good guys with guns in Orlando, and one was a highly trained off duty cop, who was working as a security guard. They couldn’t stop one bad guy with guns:

            http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/fred-grimm/article84367462.html

          • How come the citizens of the UK, Japan and New Zealand aren’t armed and yet don’t fear their governments?

          • You again totally miss the point. I don’t fear my government, I fear my government or any other government or person trying to limit my rights because of the illegal acts of others. Should the French or British have feared Nazi Germany? YES! Should we have feared the Japanese Government before Pearl Harbor? Again you miss the lessons learned from History.

          • The UK has high crime rates committed against those without firearms by those that do. The UK has suffered from numerous shootings and bombings. Again It is the United States Armed Forces that protects Japan. Guess you can’t get that through your thick Utopian skull.

          • Dumbo, the military has nothing to do with whether ordinary citizens should carry guns. Japan is a very peaceful society, not violent, like the US. I have been there multiple times and have always felt safer than here.

          • Waste your time if you like. I’ve seen armed conflict unlike you. I don’t waste my time with liberal socialist / communist sites.

          • Sorry that your argument has been proven false.
            Once again: guns don’t protect anyone. The good guys with guns theory has been debunked soundly:
            http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/fred-grimm/article84367462.html

          • How come the “good guys with guns” (police) in Dallas couldn’t stop one bad guy with guns? It took a bomb to finally bring that to an end. The guns were useless.

          • It has no concept of Freedom and Liberty. Liberty being the more important of the two. For Freedom without Liberty means nothing.

          • Which two guys? The article mentions one off duty police officer. Also the fact remains that he was stopped by good guys with guns.

          • The fact remains that it took three hours and negotiations before the carnage ended. Another source says there was an additional good guy with a gun. In Dallas an entire police force was powerless to stop one bad guy. They had to resort to a bomb to kill him. Their guns weren’t helping.

          • So are you advocating the banning of firearms and the legalization of bombs for all defensive purposes? How much do you know about firearms? How much military training have you had? Obviously none. The source says very little about the off duty police officer. He may have been killed before he had a chance to draw his weapon.

          • I’m against bombs and guns. Neither serve any useful purpose.
            The off duty cop/security guard exchanged gunfire with the shooter prior to him taking hostages into the restroom.

          • Cool. Lets take bombs and guns from the military. I’m sure when the Muslims take over and enforce sharia they will give you ample opportunity to renounce your Homosexuality before throwing you off of the roof of a skyscraper.

          • Too bad gays aren’t being thrown off roofs. You right wingers are too gullible.
            Your paranoia about Muslims makes me laugh.

          • Orlando Police Chief John Mina said an off-duty police officer working security at the club in uniform traded gunfire with the attacker.Officials said that after police responded to reports of the violence, the attacker retreated to a bathroom with hostages. Police held back because the attacker made statements about having explosives, they said.

          • So that means that all civilian gun ownership should be banned? One guard with a sidearm is a one sided duel. If there had been multiple [four or five] armed people there dozens of deaths could have been prevented. By the way:what would you do about the hundreds of thousands of illegal guns in the hands of felons and gangs,say pretty please? I Have some actual facts for you to consider.

          • I’m more worried about the natural born American citizens who got their guns legslly, who have no criminal record. They seem to be the mass shooters. They’re all heterosexual males, as well.

          • I am one of those Hetro males you have an un-natural fear of. I pity you for your Hetrophobia. I have no urge to harm you in any way as I’m sure most men in America don’t, I don’t really give a rodents rectum who’s weeny you suckle on. It’s really none of my business. I’m not pushing the point,you are. The shoving of the “we’re here and we’re queer signs in peoples faces are dividing America. I don’t want you or your ilk getting in my face. The problem is that you make your lusts part of my life against my will. There are others who will be much more vocal and [ VIOLENT] than I and you refuse to see them as a threat. The victims in Orlando were not killed by Christians. The killer was a Muslim. How you can support the mass immigration of monsters who have painted a target on your back is beyond logic and comprehension. If that happens again you have no one to blame but yourself. Just remember this. You were warned.

          • How do I make my sex life part of your life? You’re not only ignorant, you’re paranoid. If you look back at the history of the gay marriage debate, you will find out that it was you heterosexuals who started the whole thing. Marriage was not on our radar screen. You were so intimidated by gays and hate us so much, that you felt it necessary to ban is from getting married.

            Your rant confirmed this. You have a fear and hatred of gays. You need therapy. I don’t give a damn about heterosexuals and whether you can marry or not. It’s none of my business, just as my marriage is none of yours. You should ask your therapist why it is you think about gay sex so much. There are issues there. Believe me, I try my best not to think about heterosexual sex, even though it’s thrust down my throat every time I turn on the TV or walk down the street.

          • An opinion piece from a liberal rag. People who know nothing about cars have no business opining about them. The same goes for firearms.

          • Anyone can use a firearm. It takes no training to do that. That’s the problem. You don’t have to pass any training test to buy a gun.

          • You say you live in Ca. You know zero about the gun laws here. [Yes in live here too]. You must show the ability to safely operate the weapon when you buy it. That is the law. You must also pass a background check,take a safety and knowledge test and then wait ten days. For someone claiming the right and knowledge needed to “educate” conservatives you really don’t know very many facts.

          • What? Point me to any law which requires gun training prior to purchasing a gun. You can buy them at gun shows.

          • What does an anti-gun nut know about the procedures required to buy a firearm in Ca.? Zero is the obvious answer. When have you actually bought a firearm? I’m sure you would have a massive myocardial infarction if you accidentally discharged a BB gun. Just like a pussy to make false claims about firearms.

          • I’m not a coward. I won’t be buying a gun.

          • Typical conservative diversionary tactic: attack my source because you are incapable of addressing the substance of the issue at hand.

            I get it….

          • No,you don’t. Opinions are not facts. I thought an “educated” person like you would know that.

          • I posted facts and not opinions. Sorry they don’t agree with your misinformed opinion.

          • Opinion pieces are not hard news. Rumors are not facts. Fiction is not factual.

          • Says the moron who had the nerve to post an article from the Federalist and Charisma, both of which have banned me. Why do conservatives hate the 1st amendment?

          • Do you how the police finally stopped him? They had to blow a hole in the wall and the shooter came out on his own. That’s when the police killed him.

          • Are you denying that a GUN stopped him, or do you think the police scared him to death?

          • I’m saying that in three hours the police couldn’t stop him with an army of guns. Ditto for Dallas. It took a bomb to stop him.

          • And that is the reasoning behind your illogical zeal to disarm innocent people?

          • Owning a gun is immoral and should be illegal.

          • Progressive Republican

            Most of them conservative.

          • If guns don’t protect people then why do the Police carry guns? I do believe the police had guns in Orlando. Just because you don’t read about people protecting themselves or others with guns doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Almost every day someone either saves their own life or someone else’s using a legal firearm. Often it doesn’t even have to be fired to do the job of deterring crime. You don’t hear about it because it isn’t news worthy to a liberal press who are only looking for the next serial killer. Try searching the internet. Get your head out of your ass and back into the real world.

          • Guns don’t provide protection. Research is unequivocal on this. Sorry that facts don’t agree with your opinion:

            https://www.theguardian.com/science/blog/2013/mar/25/guns-protection-national-rifle-association

          • Made up research by leftist liberals, doesn’t mean shit. Other than it’s a lie.

          • LMAO at your idiotic statements and made up statistics by liberals that already control you and your life. You were held up by one idiot and now think you have the right to take away millions of others Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Unless you were shot or shot at, you are NOT a victim of gun violence, just a poor sap that was robbed and the weapon most likely would not have mattered, because you were not taught how to protect yourself. Go cry us a river.

          • Typical rightwing conservative diversionary tactic: You can’t address the issues, so you attack my source. Too bad. It’s a fact, and I can provide multiple studies which prove that guns do not provide protection.

          • Your talking points are the ones that are false. You need mental health for the firearms phobia you have

          • Nope, I want guns to disappear. They serve no function and don’t provide protection.

          • AKLady, your ignorance is not an excuse to threaten others rights. Owning and bearing guns is a right documented in the Constitution. You don’t have the right to threaten my rights because of your irrational fear. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people with guns, knives, can openers, poison, baseball bats, cars etc. More folks are killed by cars than by guns. Let’s outlaw your car because it might kill someone someday??????? Irrational fear on your part doesn’t give you the right to threaten others rights.

          • What ignorance might that be?
            Insults only matter to people who respect your opinion.
            You just lost any respect I might have had for you.

          • This reply just goes to show your own self importance. Why should we give a shit if you have respect for us. You don’t know us and we don’t know you.

          • I own a Gun and in fact I own several Guns (over 30 at last count) I even own two (Live and Legal) Machine Guns, plus I have a Conceal Carry Permit. Have I ever “Threatened” you? I go everywhere with a Firearm (Semi-auto Pistol (Beretta Model 84)) for self protection (you never know what’s waiting for you around the corner). You can dial 911 (Dial-a-Prayer) and hope the the Police will show up in less than 15 minutes or you can protect yourself and yours. A lot can happen during that 15 minute time span, such as your Murder, your wife and daughters rapes and murders. No thanks, I prefer to protect myself. I can’t carry a Cop (too heavy) so I carry a sidearm (plus a $250k insurance policy just in case I get into a “Firefight” with a “Bad Apple”) I also live in a “Stand your Ground/Castle” Doctrine State (Indiana) with NO obligation to retreat (the only time I would feel the need to retreat would be to get more ammunition).

          • Too bad your personal acedotal comments a our yourself don’t provide any consolidation to the victims of the recent mass shootings.
            All the shooters were born here.
            All of them obtained their guns legally.
            None of them had a criminal record. You are a walking time bomb.

          • Your reply is hardly worth this response, I have actually had to wait more than 15 minutes for LE to appear Fortunately, the Perpetrator did little damage and ran away from my property. Chalk one up for the “Good Guy with a Gun” for just showing that he was armed (No shots fired).

          • …and all of the shooters were either a Democrat/Liberal (confirmed by Voter Registration) or raised in a Liberal Household. You fail to connect the “Anecdotal” to the reality that surrounds your every day life. Are you going to ban knives next ( Japan, 20 dead, 19 wounded by a single knife wielding attacker)? How do those “Rose colored glasses fit over those “Blinders”?

          • Typical rightwing talking points, and easy to debunk:
            Knives have a purpose beyond killing people. There is no reason to ban them.
            Guns serve one purpose only: maim and kill. They should be eliminated.

          • You can’t “debunk” the “Liberal Shooter’s” comment because it’s true. My firearms haven’t “Killed or Maimed” anybody and the last time I hunted with them was for the eradication of Groundhogs on a Farmers property (1990’s). Go in Peace (…and remember, there just may be someone out there that’s willing to protect you).

          • Why do you have a gun if you haven’t killed or maimed with it? It’s like keeping a car in the garage. You’re not making any sense.

          • In all probability I (and the Fed.) would estimate that over 98% of legal gun owners and CCW permittees have never killed (or wounded, or maimed). Just like having a Condom on the nightstand, use it or be called Daddy, leave the gun at home and risk being “Mugged” as you experienced yourself. I chose not to have myself or mine Violated without a fight (and in a firefight, there are no rules of engagement and I fight dirty). You are aware that you have a Phobia as you think that everyone is out to shoot you when it’s only the bad guys with illegal guns. Gun Control is not the answer you seek and never will be, because the Second Revolution (2nd Civil War) would occur, All of the “Fence Sitter’s” would be swayed to defend the 2nd. Adm. after seeing what could happen to the 1st, and 4th (you know not the Bear that you will awaken, paraphrasing the Japanese Admiral after the bombing of Pearl Harbor), in furtherance he also said “there’s a gun behind every blade of grass”.

          • Too bad research shows that if you have a gun and are mugged, you are more likely to be maimed or killed than if you didn’t have a gun.

            Stay stupid. That’s fine. I choose to protect my family by having no guns anywhere in our home.

          • Then what are you bitching about! You chose to not have a Defensive Weapon in your home, that’s fine by me, I choose to have such items in my home, but it’s not fine by you. I don’t care if you do or don’t want one, but I’m not trying to make you have a gun, but you’re trying to divest me of my choice. You wouldn’t know me if we bumped into each other on the sidewalk, I would probably say “oops, excuse me” and carry on. I carry concealed whenever I’m outside of my home (without fail). Fact: Whenever a State Government would pass Legislation allowing Concealed Carry to (Lawful/ proper) Citizens, the Liberals would predict a “Bloodbath” or “Blood would would be running in the streets”,(The quotes are actual) when in fact, just the opposite happens, Homicides went down. You really should seek out professional help for your Phobia (The “Unreasonable fear of an inanimate object”), you keep on being a Hoplite and I’ll keep on carrying my “Shield”. This is my final comment on the subject (any further e-mails will be automatically dumped to Trash and deleted without being opened). Peace. Out, Dude .

          • Guns don’t serve any purpose and don’t protect you. That’s a myth. I’m watching out for you and for our country. Americans are ten times more likely to die by gunshot than any other country. Why? You don’t need a gun and nobody needs one. Time to eliminate them, as we eliminated nuclear weapons step by step.

          • Sorry, haven’t set up the e-mail block yet but to tell you the truth we have’t gotten rid of “Special Weapons” as there are 50 of them stored in Turkey at a NATO Airbase and I can Guarantee that Ballistic Submarines have a full loadout. Special weapons were eliminated from most Surface Units with the exception of Aircraft Carriers. if you ask for anymore information about them, I would have to reply that “I can neither Confirm nor Deny…” Remember, I was a”Gunner’s Mate” that’s what I did. (Leader/Supervisor, Special Weapons handling team).

          • Yes, I am indeed aware that nukes still exist as a deterrent. But any country which chose to use one would realize it was mutual suicide to do so. That’s why I think you would be better served to have a gun without bullets. This would be more likely to save your life than a loaded gun. Just trying to be helpful. Yes, I care about you and don’t want you to be harmed by your own gun.

          • Thanks for your service, and I mean that sincerely.

          • Your “Facts” are (mostly) BS as they (Mostly) come from a (strictly) Liberal Organization with an agenda. I obtain mine from the DOJ (you could claim that the DOJ statistics is a lie, but it’s your Government that’s lying to you. who can you trust for your own safety other than yourself?

          • There you go. A typical conservative diversionary tactic is to attack the source of info as being liberal, because you can’t address the issue at hand.

            So lame and predictable.

          • In 2009, the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study of over nearly 700 unique shootings and came to one very important conclusion: those carrying guns are 4.2 times more likely to be killed during an attack than those who are unarmed. It was a baffling conclusion that flew in the face of any basic logic — wouldn’t having a sidearm actually prevent an intruder or an assailant from hurting you first?

            Apparently not. According to Prof. Charles Branas, who authored the study, although the number may have had something to do with the type of person carrying a gun (in this case, a portion of those toting a firearm had criminal histories), it was far more likely that the person carrying the firearm would overreact or fall victim to a skewed sense of entitlement — or perhaps they would simply venture into areas where they normally wouldn’t. Either way, said Branas, the numbers didn’t lie. Packing heat actually increased your chances of bodily harm.

          • I wish you red states would follow through with your Civil War threat. Nothing would please us blue states more than to see you leave the Union. We can make red states gun states and blue states gun free. You can kiss all those checks we’ve been sending you. The red states are the ones who beg for money. The blue states always bail you out.

          • …and as I said in an earlier post, why have a Condom if you’re not going to use it (Daddy).

          • Here’s a good analogy. The US is in more danger because we have nuclear weapons. The reason nations around the globe are reducing their weapons is to protect themselves.
            When I was mugged at gunpoint, the mugger was on drugs and tweaked out of his mind. If I had pulled out a gun he would have freaked out and shot me instantly. I complied with his demands and he only ten dollars for his trouble. He was happy with that an quickly ran off.

          • What does the politics of shooters have to do with anything? The recent mass shooters were all born here and had legal guns and no criminal record.

          • The “Politics” indicate that there is something wrong with Liberals thinking and not all of them had Legally obtained weapons. Sandy Hook, the weapon was stolen after he killed his mother (just one example off the top of the head).

          • Those guns were legally purchased by his mother and she had taken him to a shooting range and was planning to buy him a gun for Christmas. She is no longer with us to regret her mistakes. She was a dumb woman, with a mentally ill son, who should have never had a gun in the home. She paid with her life.
            I also have a relative who killed himself on his birthday with his own gun.

          • You are incorrect, not ALL of the Perpetrators were born here. San Bernardino, his wife was not born in the US. Plus the weapons used would be considered a “Straw Man” purchase by the BATF&E as their Neighbor acquired them first and did not transfer them in according to State (California) and Federal Law (I’m also a former Class 3 (NFA) Dealer)

          • I was referring to the mass shootings that happened this year. That was also the only female perpetrator. All others have been heterosexual males, who were native born and had no criminal record.

          • Guns don’t provide protection:
            https://www.theguardian.com/science/blog/2013/mar/25/guns-protection-national-rifle-association

            I bet I live in an area where I am in more danger than you. I used to work in Harlem for seven years. Yes I’ve been mugged at gunpoint. I also have a dead relative, who killed himself with his own gun. He was a veteran, like you. My own personal experiences negates your story.

          • Are you just plain stupid? You directly threaten my rights. There is a right to keep and bear arms. READ THE CONSTITUTION! If someone threatens you with a gun, you have a right to call the police or defend yourself. You don’t have a right to take away my rights just because you might be threatened by someone else. I’ve owned guns since I was 8 years old and never threatened anyone with them. Your fear does not give you the right to threaten my rights. Good luck if you are actually threatened and you depend on the arrival of the police for your safety.

          • You threaten my rights by owning a gun. I’ve already been a victim of gun violence. Why do you think I oppose guns? Police were useless.

          • What right would that be listed in the Constitution. What article, clause or amendment. You most likely haven’t read the U.S. Constitution. I am sure there is a mental health facility around you somewhere. My suggestion is you seek it out and get help for your phobia.

          • I have no phobia. Guns don’t serve any purpose. They don’t protect anyone. Incidentally, one of m relatives is no longer alive due to self inflicted gun wounds.
            I know from personal experience that guns do more harm than good.

          • If guns serve no purpose, then explain why in Paris after the bombings and shootings, the police rushed in with firearms?

          • Did you notice that the police didn’t do anything to stop the shooting? Did you notice that an entire police force in Dallas couldn’t stop one bad guy with guns?
            Why is that?

          • I’m blocking you for now. I want you to have time to read the links I’ve provided. I’m an educator, and my job with you is finished. Get an education. Read what I’ve sent you.
            Bye!

          • If you feel threatened because someone owns a firearm, then you need to seek mental health.

          • Everyone is threatened when idiots like you own guns.

          • Don’t try to attack me or mine and you won’t ever be threatened by my gun. Likewise with the other legal carriers. We aren’t the ones you need to worry about.

          • Tell that to my dead relative who died at the hands of his own gun.

          • Yes, you ARE the ones we need to worry about. 100 percent of the recent mass shooters had this in common:

            1 natural born US citizen
            2 legally obtained guns
            3 no criminal record

          • How is the fact that someone owns a gun a threat to you?

          • Guns are designed to kill and maim. It’s the same threat when a country owns nuclear weapons. Why is the world trying to limit them? Same principle.

          • That doesn’t explain why you feel threatened when someone across the country, you will most likely never meet, is a threat to you.

          • Anyone who owns a gun is a threat to the general public- and yes, I’ve been robbed at gunpoint in the Manhattan subway.

          • So cops should be disarmed too? By the way I was robbed pistol whipped and knocked cold. I don’t hate guns. You are a blinded idiot.

          • I was robbed by a gun, as well. I’ve performed in Japan, the U.K. and New Zealand. The police don’t carry guns in those countries and they protect people very well.

          • Here is a short,factual lesson in reality for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pELwCqz2JfE

          • Really? Another opinion piece from someone who has never held a firearm? I’m so underwhelmed.

          • No, factually based and peer reviewed research.

          • Cool. I have one for you. http://thefederalist.com/2014/11/11/knives-kill-more-people-each-year-than-rifles-time-for-knife-control/ I have another. Anyone can come up with numbers to support their position.

          • Owning A Gun Doesn’t Mean You’ll Be Able To Protect Yourself (Or Your Loved Ones) With It

            A November 2012 Justice Department report indicated that while the number of firearms stolen from private property may have dropped significantly between 1994 and 2010 (statistics showed a decrease from 283,600 thefts to 145,300 within that time frame), that means that an overall total of some 1.4 million guns had been stolen in a span of 16 years. Many of those thefts, reported the Justice Department, went unrecovered — meaning that nearly 80 percent of the stolen firearms were still out there somewhere, likely in the hands of those with more hostile intentions.

            When compared to the nearly 300 million guns owned by American citizens, that number is just a drop in the bucket — but it also means that over 1.1 million guns have been taken from their legal, well-meaning owners — and isn’t that what many pro-gun advocates say is the point of purchasing a firearm in the first place?

            If nothing else, those stolen guns are actually more of a concern than a comfort. A study conducted in the early ’90s by the Justice Department showed that, on average, anywhere from 38 to 40 percent of prison inmates had acquired the gun they used in a violent crime through theft or secondhand illegal markets (which often sell firearms stolen from private owners).

            So whether you purchased a gun or not, your safety may actually lie in how responsible the people around you are — and with a number like 1.1 million hovering overhead, you probably shouldn’t get too comfortable.

          • In 2009, the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study of over nearly 700 unique shootings and came to one very important conclusion: those carrying guns are 4.2 times more likely to be killed during an attack than those who are unarmed. It was a baffling conclusion that flew in the face of any basic logic — wouldn’t having a sidearm actually prevent an intruder or an assailant from hurting you first?

            Apparently not. According to Prof. Charles Branas, who authored the study, although the number may have had something to do with the type of person carrying a gun (in this case, a portion of those toting a firearm had criminal histories), it was far more likely that the person carrying the firearm would overreact or fall victim to a skewed sense of entitlement — or perhaps they would simply venture into areas where they normally wouldn’t. Either way, said Branas, the numbers didn’t lie. Packing heat actually increased your chances of bodily harm.

          • I’ll take my chances. It sounds like this study was taken using fools and thrill seekers as subjects.

          • Good luck. I’m safer than you because I don’t have a gun. Cowards use guns.

          • Anyone who thinks adding more guns in a country with gun violence will solve our problems is not using logic. That’s like saying building more fast food restaurants in areas where there are fat people will solve the obesity problem.

          • Yes, I want cops disarmed, as they are in Japan, the UK and New Zealand. Too many innocent blacks are dying due to incompetent police. Read the news.

          • Really? Then who do you think will defend you from criminals,gangsters and those horrible Republicans? Will you stand up and defend yourself? Give me a break. You will likely cower behind the first man to defend you, with, or without a gun. If I’m there I will protect you. Would you do the same for me? How could you? You would run like the chickenshit you are.

          • I don’t need a gun to defend myself. Guns are for cowards and pussies like you.

          • I’ve been mugged at gunpoint in Manhattan. Have you? I didn’t run and I didn’t cry. I gave him ten dollars and he ran off on his own. If I had a gun, I wouldn’t be here to tell that story.

            Scalia was a man for everyone.

          • Our entire society has a problem with guns. Be in denial, but it’s a sad fact:

            http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-u-s-gun-deaths-compare-to-other-countries/

          • Ask yourself why a BBC reporter said this after the Orlando mass shooting:

            “Just another day and another mass shooting in America.”

          • Jumpin' Jack Flash

            I guess the BBC Reporter could
            have said, just another mass knifing on the streets of London yesterday.

          • How many have died in mass knifings in London? I know of two victims. That wouldn’t even be newsworthy in the US. That happens daily.

            You are being foolish now !

          • Because he just another libtard, just like you.

          • Too bad we liberals are more intelligent than you conservatives:
            http://www.naturalnews.com/038676_USA_health_outcomes_worst.html

          • The only things liberals prove each day is their stupidity. Because it has been liberal democrats that have conducted the mass shootings or terrorist ISIS / Islamic sympathizers, that have committed these acts. Both San Bernardino and Miami were carried out by Islamic terrorists. In the case of San Bernardino, the individuals borrowed firearms from their friend, so they did not legally purchase the weapons.

          • There is big difference between “equal rights” and “preferential treatment” under the law. The Constitution specifies citizens equal rights under God and the Law for both the Majority and the Minority. Justice Scalia recognized the difference. You obviously don’t.

          • Scalia thought gays shouldn’t have equal rights. This I understood, as did every other gay person in America.

          • There is NO Constitutional right to marriage for straight or gay individuals.

          • Preferential treatment? Are you referring to the special rights which heterosexual couples were granted which were denied to us gay couples?

          • Wow you just keep showing your stupidity. The courts job is uphold the Constitution of The United States of America and to insure existing law (not make law) is within the confines of the Constitution.

          • That’s right, which is why they invalidated all bans on gay marriage. They violated the rights of one minority. Too bad Scalia didn’t understand this. He didn’t even acknowledge that gays exist. He thought everyone was heterosexual, and homosexuality was a lifestyle..

          • Too bad you don’t realize that the court’s role is to follow and enforce the law and the constitution. So much for educating anyone.

          • Yes, and the US constitution protects the rights of minorities when the nmajortiy attempts to temple those rights. The American people had no right to remove the right to marry from gays. It violated the 14th amendment. The system worked, despite Scalia being a clueless evil man.

          • Actually there is NO right to marry for ANYONE of ANY sexual orientation found ANYWHERE in the constitution. Please show me where it is found.

          • Please show me where the constitution says the 14th amendment doesn’t apply to gays. You cannot pass any law which singles out a minority and exclude them from civil rights.

          • Please show where marriage is even mentioned in the 14th amendment.

          • Please show where gays are not protected by the 14th amendment. The constitution guarantees the right to marry, according to 14 rulings by the Supreme Court. The constitution does not exclude gays from equal protection. If you heterosexuals hadn’t passed your hateful bans on gay marieage this would have never happened. You reap what you sow.

          • I didn’t say gays weren’t protected or afforded equal protection under the law. You are assuming that something is so when it isn’t. The 14th amendment doesn’t apply to marriage. There is no constitutional right to marry in the constitution. http://www.jurist.org/forum/2014/10/richard-kelsey-samesex-marriage.php

          • I see; something that is guaranteed in the bill of rights; the right to bear arms is to be ignored and abolished but something that isn’t there.[the right to marry] should be the law of the land. Why? Because you say so.

          • Because guns serve no purpose nor function, that’s why. Marriage is constructive no matter who is in it.

          • Just remember what happened with gay marriage when you try passing laws preventing trans people from using the rest room of choice. Wait and watch.

          • Please show me where marriage is mentioned in the constitution.

          • Show me where gays are not included in the 14th amendment.

          • Show me where it mentions marriage.

          • Marriage is a basic guaranteed right, according to the Supreme Court.

          • I married my husband in 2008. California was the second state to legalize gay marriage. I foresaw what happened in 2015 all the way back then. Once you prevent one group from the rights afforded the majority you violate the US constitution. Just remember this if you pass laws discriminating against trans people.

          • This stupid decision does not change the text of the constitution. Again,Please show where marriage [in any form] is mentioned anywhere in the constitution. You can’t. It isn’t there.

          • Marriage is a basic civil right, as enumerated 14 times by SCOTUS. Stupid…

          • The Supreme Court disagrees with this. They have ruled that the constitution guarantees the right to marry in more than 14 cases. They even grant this right to convicted prisoners on death row, who have no chance to consummate the marriage.

          • There is no mention of marriage anywhere in the constitution. Show where it is mentioned.

          • Too bad Scalia didn’t think the 14th amendment applied to gay people. He as truly a dumb man.

          • Oh yes. Scalia was dumb alright. That’s why he was on the highest court on the planet and you are just a liberal layman,asshole with a big mouth and and an ego to match.

          • Scalia was a turd brained idiot. He also belonged to a militant anti-gay Catholic group called Opus Dei. Google it. He should have recused himself in the gay marriage case. I’m glad he’s dead. Karma, baby.

          • Please specify the civil rights the majority has tried to take from minorities.

          • The heterosexual majority actually voted to remove my right to marry in my state, CA, after I was already married. They even wanted to invalidate my marriage after it happened, and the court slapped them down.

          • You had no right to marry until the Ca. supreme court gave it to you by defying the will of the people. That is the new way liberals get their way.

          • We gays never demanded marriage. It was you heterosexual militant bigots who made it happen by your childish bans on gay marriage.

            Heterosexuals aren’t the brightest people.

          • Homosexuals deny they demanded the right to marry,yet sue bakeries into bankruptcy when they refuse to bake cakes. They claim to not want to force churches to perform weddings. https://www.au.org/church-state/june-2015-church-state/editorial/same-sex-scare-tactics-no-churches-won-t-be-forced-to And then demand that churches that oppose gay marriage be shut down. http://toprightnews.com/gay-group-demands-christian-churches-be-shut-down-for-opposing-same-sex-marriage/ Then idiots like you claim the 14th amendment legalizes gay marriage. http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/48762-5-reasons-the-14th-amendment-can-t-possibly-demand-gay-marriage How can you claim to have the authority to interpret the constitution to suit your own purposes and carnal needs?

          • Hahahaha no gays have ever demanded any clergy marry them. How stupid. We didn’t start this debate, dumbo. It was heterosexuals who banned gay marriage first. Get your facts straight. We never put ballot measures to legalize it on the state constituents, with one exception: Maine, the second time they voted on it.

            You’re very confused. It was heterosexuals who first demanded that gays NOT be allowed to marry.

          • Actually, that is the problem. You lack the legal education to understand application of law. Suggest you read case law and get an education.

          • I suggest you read the founding fathers papers on why the instituted the 2nd amendment.

          • Progressive Republican

            Y’mean like No. 29 of the Federalist Papers wherein Alexander Hamilton explained at great length precisely what a “well-regulated militia” was, why the Founding Fathers thought we needed one, and why they wanted to protect it from being disarmed by the federal government?

            Perhaps you should follow your own advice.

          • I have. And yet you always ignore that the 2nd amendment is broken down into two parts, the militia and the people. This is clearly done by the inception of the comma after the clause regarding the a well regulated militia. Nice try, but you failed.

          • Progressive Republican

            Cute, considering that it’s your ilk that constantly neglects the ‘well regulated Militia’ part.

          • You are fighting for tyranny and slavery. Not rights. Since I have a Constitutionally protected right to own a firearm, you don’t have the right nor does the government to take that right away. ONLY a article v convention as outlined by the U.S. Constitution can the 2nd Amendment be changed.

          • When we were hit at Pearl harbor, who protected you then, a slap on the wrist or American guns. It will happen again if we do not vet properly, we have allowed these acts of terror to happen in this great country. For myself I want the proud American with the gun and a strong military, not a milksop to protect me & mine

          • I don’t want citizens walking around armed. The last mass shooters had this in common:

            1 natural born US citizen
            2 legally obtained guns
            3 no criminal record

            Two of them were vets.

          • Remove the suicide numbers… They will kill themselves no matter the tool…

          • Not true at all:

            Suicides

            An average of 46 Americans committed suicide with guns each day between 2003 and 2007. In fact, more Americans killed themselves with guns during those years than with all other methods combined.

            Gun owners and their families are not more suicidal than non-gun-owners, research shows. No are they more likely to have a history of depression or other mental health problems.

            But they — and their families — are at significantly increased risk of successfully taking their lives with a gun. The reason: Guns are more lethal than other methods.

            One study found, reports Hemenway, that “in states with more guns, there were more suicides (because there were more firearm suicides), even after controlling for the percentage of the state’s population with serious mental illness, alcohol dependence or abuse, illicit substance dependence or abuse, and the percentage unemployed, living below the poverty level, and in urban areas.”

            But “there was no association between gun prevalence and a state’s nonfirearm suicide rate,” he adds.

          • You are an Eloi. Having solved all problems that required strength, intelligence, or

          • You haven’t been reading Trump’s full statements, just the liberal news headlines. Trump has never said anything ant-immigrant or anti-Muslim. What he has said is “illegal immigrants” should be sent home – emphasis is on the word illegal. He has said there should be a temporary halt to immigration from counties harboring terrorist organizations, until those immigrants can be properly vetted to show they are not terrorists or persons who would aid or abet terrorists. That is not bigotry or hate, it is someone who says we should be following the law and making common sense decisions about who we let immigrate into the USA. Maybe you should lookup the definitions of bigot and hate before labeling people??? Half-truths are lies and it seems the news media lives off of half-truths and partial quotes, never giving to whole truth or whole story. That goes for all the news media, left and right. They are out to make money, not give us truth.

          • I have been listening to Trump’s anti-Muslim rants. His pro-gun rants are even worse and make me 1000 percent certain I am voting for Hillary, especially if she opposes the 2nd amendment, as I do.

          • Again, you are not reading what Trump said, you are reading or hearing what the news media wants you to believe he said. The best example is this last non-issue on his comment on the second amendment and a supposed threat to Clinton. Never happened. There was no threat just an opportunity for political foes to purposefully misrepresent his words for their own political purposes. Another reason to get rid of the current political structure in DC – both Democrat and Republican. They all are a bunch of liars out to protect their own political power. That is the only reason Trump will get my vote – he’s not one of them. That’s why both parties have been against him from the beginning and the best reason to vote for him!

          • Progressive Republican

            “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people—maybe there is, I don’t know.”

            That’s clearly a suggestion reminiscent of the last election cycle when some FRWNJ candidates were referring to ‘Second Amendment solutions’.

          • It was clearly a suggestion for all gun owners and believers in the 2nd Amendment to vote. Nothing more. Only an idiot would think otherwise.

          • Progressive Republican

            Spin it dishonestly all you wish. With the uncounted number of faux-patriots ready to commit armed insurrection because they don’t get their own way, i’m calling bullshit on your bullshit.

          • Yeah, your bullshit won’t take you to far in the armed insurrection.

          • Progressive Republican

            Farther than yours has.

          • Has the armed insurrection begun??!! I wasn’t aware. TO ARMS, TO ARMS!! Idiot.

          • Progressive Republican

            Yer dummer’n I thought and I thought you were a idiot, but you’ve made it to ‘dunce’.

            congrats

          • You need to run to mommy and tell her to give you an enema because you are full of shit. I’ll bet you like that don’t you? Mommy inserting a tube up your ass? I’ll bet it causes you to have an erection.

          • You read that as a threat? I read it as a fact. Citizens had to take up arms against the government 240 years ago and I happen to believe that option shouldn’t be precluded now or in the future. That is not a threat to Hillary personally, it is a threat to a government that attempts to limit or take our rights, freedoms and/or liberties. That is the primary reason for the second amendment to begin with. That is what Trump meant and what I agree with 100%.

          • So you will vote for a killer and thief. Goes to show your low morals.

          • No, I won’t be voting for Trump.

          • Progressive Republican

            Duh.

          • Let’s review the record, Killary steals furniture from the WH, responsible for Benghazi, partially responsible violence and death in Egypt while the Muslim Brotherhood was in control, I’d say that titles of thief and killer belong to Killary.

          • Progressive Republican

            Let’s review the record, Killary (sic) steals furniture from the WH (lie; debunked), responsible for Benghazi (lie; debunked), partially responsible violence and death in Egypt while the Muslim Brotherhood was in control (questionable at best), I’d say that titles of thief and killer belong to Killary(sic).

            Fail.

          • Clintons stole furniture,confirmed by ABC news. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=121856 Hillary responsible for Benghazi. True. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKsiDV1LuJA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5ge4lXLBaQ You need to research deeper. Historic facts are historic facts.

          • Progressive Republican

            Thus proving that the MSM is Not liberal.

            The President must report gifts over a certain value. During most of the Clinton years, the amount was $250, though today it is $350. When Bill Clinton completed his term, he submitted a final disclosure form that listed roughly $190,000 in gifts.

            The itemized list caught the eye of the Washington Post and provided plenty of fodder for the curious as well as the dishonest. People gave the President a lot of golf clubs. Sylvester Stallone gave him a pair of boxing gloves. Steven Spielberg sent him china. And Steve Mittman from New York gave him two sofas, an easy chair and ottoman worth $19,900.

            The problem was that Mittman, and a few others included on the list, said they never intended their gifts to go to the Clintons. They thought they were donating to the White House itself as part a major remodeling project in 1993.

            Oops.

            Now this is where the questions of provenance get kinda murky (if that clear).

            Some gifts are intended for the government, and so must stay in the government’s hands, while some are intended for the person living in the White House. But it’s not always as simple as “this is mine” and “that is Uncle Sam’s.”

            Within about two weeks of the publication of the Post article, public criticism escalated, and the Clintons announced that they would pay the government nearly $86,000 for items that it turned out were actually government property. A few days after that, they also returned about $48,000 worth of furniture (including the sofas, chair and ottoman from Mittman).

            Add that up and the government got back $134,000 out of the $190,000 the Clinton’s had declared as gifts. But just to show how hard it is to determine specific ownership, the National Park Service, which oversees the White House property, later returned a chair and an ottoman to the Clintons.

            So the lie is in the word stole.

            And, of course,

            Hillary responsible for Benghazi.

            Lie.

            Far more deserving of scorn are the likes of Republican Senators Rand Paul (KY) and Ron Johnson (WI) and all the other grandstanding, conspiracy-mongering, ill-informed, dishonest politicians and the rest of the liars who spouting this disproven bullshit.

            Like you.

            Bill Whittle? Are you trying to convince me or to make me laugh/puke?

            He lies; often by leaving details out in order to imply nefariousness.

            For example, his telling that Hillary ignored Cretz’s security increase requests.

            All correspondence to the State Dept. is addressed to the SoS. This can surpass millions of instances. Anyone who thinks she actually sees all of them simply because they’re addresses to her is, at best, delusional.

            It’s not her job. It was a CIA station along with the annex that was about a mile away. Security for said stations are outside the purview of the State Dept. Whittle’s implication that it was a State Dept. decision not to renew existing security contracts is, therefore, another lie.

            They were unarmed, btw

            Ol’ Billy’s constant claims of correspondence being straight to Clinton are still lies (as previously noted).

            Stevens was not ‘captured, tortured, raped, and killed’.

            This is a particularly grievous and heinous lie spun by FRWNJ liars because they’re liars.

            That was as much of his bullshit as I could stomach and I needed a break to get that far.

            As you stated, historic facts are historic facts.

            However, you are clearly in dire need of learning how to discern the difference between facts and the bullshit lies you clearly prefer.

            But then you wouldn’t be a conservative were it otherwise.

          • Trump isn’t the one who’s a killer/thief and you know it.

          • Why did you admit that Trump is a killer? There is no proof of that.

          • Reread my comment. I said Trump is NOT the one who’s a killer/thief.

          • If Trump isn’t a thief how come he won’t show his tax returns???
            LOLOL!

          • Why doesn’t Hilary show hers then. Trump has already explained why he hasn’t shown his yet.

          • What the Hell are you babbling about, moron?? It’s common knowledge that she showed hers quite a while ago. You don’t own a TV?

          • Trump has never killed anyone. Hillary has the blood of at least a dozen people on her hands.

          • Progressive Republican

            The differences are the spiffy mustache and the hot wife.

            ?

          • One Trump is not a racist. You have no proof he is,only this stupid left wing attack piece. Hitler actually deported his own citizens to Poland for extermination. Trump wants non citizens to go back to their home countries and come in the legal way. Trump is not a Muslim hater,or does he want to send them to concentration camps. He is realistic about the terrorist threats of non-vetted Muslims. He never blamed Immigrants for our problems. He knows the Democrats are to blame. Lastly,please show where he wants to force Muslims to wear the Islamic equivalent of the yellow star. As a bonus here is a counter argument. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc8-EDHNlx8

          • Stupid. You don’t even listen to what Trump says. You’re utterly clueless. Hitler was far right and fascism is the natural conclusion of conservative principles:
            I think you need to brush up on your English skills. The word “fascist” means the exact opposite of what you think it means: the word fascist is intended to mean “oppressive”, “intolerant”, “chauvinist”, “genocidal”, “dictatorial”, “racist”, or “aggressive”—all concepts that are allegedly inspired by the ideology of actual fascism, and pervasive through fascist states. It is associated with conservative, far-right politics.
            In other words, when the heterosexual majority stripped civil rights from the gay minority, it was a classic example of fascism.

          • You’re the stupid one. I know exactly what he has said.I just don’t accept the lame stream media’s version of reality like you and your lemming ilk do. As for taking gay’s rights,you should be happy he wants a temporary ban on those who would impose the death penalty for Homosexuality. STUPID!!!

          • Muslims that come to this country are escaping a country controlled by fundamentalist religion. By the way, there are Christians that advocated death to gays, as well. It’s happening in Africa. I already sent that to you.

            More Muslims in America support gay marriage than Evangelicals. A Turkish Muslim woman attended my wedding in 2008.
            http://reason.com/blog/2016/06/13/in-america-muslims-are-more-likely-to-su

          • You don’t know any Muslims, do you? You probably don’t know any gay people, either.

          • You know nothing.

          • I know many Muslims personally. I know that it’s Kool-Aid. I know that guns don’t protect anyone. I know that your god is manmade. I know that Trump is a Nazi.

          • Do the Muslims you know wear traditional garb? Do they faithfully go to mosque every Friday? Do they stop their activities five times a day,unroll their prayer rugs,kneel facing the east and pray? If so then they are not your friends and are practicing taqia. If not,then in the minds of fundamentalists they are apostates,not true Muslims and must die just as you ,being an abomination to Allah must also die. I being a Christian and Heterosexual will be given the potion of becoming a dhimmi. I will not become a dhimmi. I will fight them for my freedom. You on the other hand being the loudmouth gay pride advocate you are will admit your Homosexuality to them effectively signing your death warrant. You know My God is man made? Funny I know that Allah is real. However he is not God,he is Satan.Believe what you want about Trump. I know different and neither of us can change the other’s mind. I wish you well,knowing that you, being a Homosexual hedonist and not believing in guns or the danger of Islam,are on the top of the Islamic hit list when they make their move. I will leave you with a lesson on Islam from someone who studies it. Ignore it at your own peril. Jihadists are counting on you to remain ignorant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERou_Q5l9Gw

          • Your brainwashing is complete. Congratulations! You are an official Islamophobe and homophobe. Jesus is so proud of you. Pat on back.

          • Neither of those words have any basis in reality. A phobia is the irrational fear of something that is not really a threat. Islam is definitely a threat.The fact remains that although not all Muslims are jihadists,all jihadists are indeed,Muslims. I don’t fear people. I fear their religious doctrine. There ARE jihadists in the USA. The FBI has confirmed that. People who are compelled by their religious beliefs to kill or subjugate non believers are indeed dangerous. Therefore being aware and wary of their motives is NOT a phobia. As for Homosexuality. I don’t fear the practice. If gives me the creeps. Using Jesus in the way you did shows your hypocrisy. You don’t believe he is the savior. Why would you say that unless it was to mock him and me? He would urge me to fight the forces of darkness[Islam] not accept it. He also condemned Homosexuality in these listed Bible verses. http://www.witnessfortheworld.org/homont.html

          • Christianity is a force of evil, just as all religions are. The fact that you can’t see that speaks to your low level of intelligence. That’s something I can’t control.

            The bible verses you sent me don’t condemn homosexuality:

            http://www.notalllikethat.org/taking-god-at-his-word-the-bible-and-homosexuality/

          • I’m waiting for you to apologize about all the things you said which I have debunked using real science.

            You were wrong about everything and wrong about this. You’re a 12 year old mentally. No wonder you believe in a god. Pathetic….

          • Do the Christians you know stone to death disobedient children and brides who aren’t virgins? What about adulterers and homosexuals? It’s all in your silly bible. They are also told not to eat shrimp, wear mixed fabrics or get a haircut:

            (NT) Matthew 7:12 (Jesus says Morality is Subjective)

          • You use the old testament to make points about modern Christianity. Nice dodge. The golden rule [Matthew 7:12] commands you to treat others like you want to be treated by them. It isn’t about morality. It’s about mutual respect;something most liberals don’t practice.

          • Actually liberals pretend to have empathy and respect. They emote rather that think. That is not the sign of a higher intelligence. It is rather the sign of enhanced gullibility. That is why the Democrats lead you around by the nose using your self applied nose ring.

          • You’re the most gullible person on this planet. You bought the biggest hoax ever attempted on the human race. And you’re too dumb to see this.

          • Too bad you’re not smart enough to realize the bible doesn’t condemn homosexuality:

            http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/05/15/my-take-what-the-bible-really-says-about-homosexuality/

            By the way, I’m equally disgusted by heterosexuality. It’s my nature to be disgusted by it. And yes, I’ve tried heterosexual sex and saw how wrong it was for me.

          • Conservatives are the followers, not liberals, dumbo. That’s why Trump said “I love uneducated voters.”

            He knows what he’s doing. He’s got you morons right where he wants you.

          • You need some serious education. This hour and a half documentary is what you need. It will tell you why the bible does not condemn homosexuality:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYOk66rhl0s

          • This might be a better link. The other one asks you to pay for it:

          • Unlike you, I feel sorry for you. I really do. I know I’ve been combative, but it’s only because you’ve said so many things which are false and which I have proven false. I sincerely come to conservative sites to educate people. Unfortunately, they all too often block me and silence me within an hour. I don’t know how I’ve survived so long on this thread. Must be a Christmas miracle? Maybe Jesus wanted me to educate you? You need it….

            There are so many holes in your arguments, it’s hard to know where to begin. I have a lot of patience, however. I’d love to teach Paul McCartney how to read music. I bet he wouldn’t know an augmented 6th chord if it hit him in the face.

          • Amjer, India – While almost certain not to be reported in the corporate main stream media, nearly 70,000 Islamic clerics issued a religious fatwa condemning terrorism, from their annual meeting in Ajmer, India during the Urs festival. The festival is a yearly gathering of Muslim clerics held to commemorate the death of Moinuddin Chishti, a Sufi Islamic cleric and scholar.
            Additionally, the religious leaders asked the media to stop referring to the terrorist groups as Muslim, with the idea being that true believers of Islam do not support extremist perversions of the religion.
            Since the Paris attacks, the Western media and political landscape has been rife with bigotry, hate and xenophobia, with Donald Trump leading the charge by calling for a halt to all Muslim immigration into the United States, basing admittance on a religious litmus test.
            Muslims across the world have suffered at the hands of the Islamic State and their warped interpretation of Islam. In fact, they’re hated in almost every country with large Muslim population, as a recent Pew Research poll has shown.
            With so many Muslims across the world opposed to the Islamic State, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that such a large number of Islamic leaders came forward to repudiate the extremist interpretations of Islam

          • I don’t believe it; the words “illegal alien” coming from a pinko like you. What happened to undocumented immigrant.

          • I hope that as I continue to read your idiotic comments you at some point admit you were wrong on multiple issues.

          • When will you apologize for being wrong?

            1 Paul McCartney and Billy Joel are musically illiterate.
            2 guns don’t provide protection
            3 there is no god

            7 marriage has been deemed a basic civil right more than 14 times by the Supreme Court. The constitution guarantees this right to gay couples, as well as straights

            I proved you were wrong on all the above

          • Since coming to office in 2009, Obama’s government has deported more than 2.5 million people—up 23% from the George W. Bush years. More shockingly, Obama is now on pace to deport more people than the sum of all 19 presidents who governed the United States from 1892-2000, according to government data.

            And he’s not done yet. With the clock ticking down his final months in office, Obama appears to be running up the score in an effort to protect his title as deporter-in-chief from future presidents. To pad the numbers, Homeland Security is now going after the lowest-hanging fruit: women and children who are seeking asylum from violence in Central America.

          • And Communism means freedom.Right, Nimrod?

          • I hope an illegal immigrant or a Mooseslime terrorist guns down you and your family.

          • I can’t choose from your array of domestic insane serial killers. I need to see the illegal immigrant who gunned down the innocent woman in San Francisco. Or the Mooseslime terrorists from San Bernardino or Orlando. Where’s your photos of them?

          • What’s the difference ?

          • If I have to explain it to you, you would never understand.

          • Murder is murder.
            Dead is dead.

          • Who is name calling you stupid old bat?

          • Too bad the mass shooters have all been natural born citizens, with legally obtained guns and no criminal record.

            There goes your talking points.

          • The wife in the San Bernardino shooting was a Saudi mooseslime terrorist. She was the brains behind the operation. The common denominator for that group is they are Mooseslimes. The illegal immigrants are in a class by themselves, rapists and murderers. Not mass shooters. Two separate kinds of undesirables. Get it now? How they got their weapons is immaterial.

          • The U.S. has more prisons than all the othrr countries put tograther, including Russiua and China. Why don’t you run your fingers and protest that? Maybe you could fund a curw for it?

          • I hope I “fund” a “curw” for you, you stupid whore.
            Where is “Russiua”? Never heard of it.
            I think you are full of bovine scatology when you say we have more prisons than all “othrr” countries combined. Not possible.
            You are one sad, pathetic drunk. Do you not realize what a fool you make yourself out to be? Go to rehab.

          • Too bad most mass shooters weren’t Muslims and were born here. She’s the only one who wasn’t a heterosexual male. She’s the exception.

          • The immigrants I know are just trying to earn and honest living and support themselves . They’re better people than you

          • Fine. Let them earn it in their own country. And you don’t know me so I suggest you remain silent.

          • We’re a country of immigrants. You want everyone but Native Americans to leave?

          • No, of course not. I have nothing against LEGAL immigrants. I welcome them with open arms. It’s the ones sneaking in, breaking the law that I have a beef with. I know to come here legally is a hassle with many hoops to jump through and can get expensive in many ways, but that’s the law. I have watched two friends do it, one from Canada, one from Mexico. And let me add, the ones that are here legally are not happy with the ones who are not. It pisses them off that they played by the rules and others get a walk. It’s one of Trumps hidden strengths.

          • Here’s the problem with your argument, and that of Trump: if you think deporting illegals is the answer to crime problems, you’re dead wrong. The vast majority of criminals are legally here and most aren’t immigrants. The mass shooters come to mind: all but one female were born here. The same is true in Europe, the French and Belgian terrorists were born in those countries of immigrant parents.

          • You’re correct about the French and Belgians. And the same is true for the UK. And it’s really of their own making. At the end of WWII, those countries were broke and had to cut their Colonies loose, many of them in the mid-east. They granted the colonists duel citizenship. That was a mistake. Trump is trying to head off that problem here. He wants to stop it until we know who is who, not forever. It’s a dangerous world and these people hate us. Look at Paris, Nice, Brussels, and isolated incidents in London and across Germany. Until I know they don’t want to kill me or my family, I don’t want them next door.

          • Yeah, those that downed the planes were not, the gunman in San Bernadino wasn’t. The shooter at sandy hook was the idiot son of an idiot lefty teacher. The shooters of the police in recent shootings were black (your voter base)…. Most shootings that occur daily, yep..you guessed it.. Blacks shooting blacks and not with legally obtained guns.

          • Let’s see….
            Robert Lewis Dear… Police already knew he was delusional. But he still didn’t kill as nearly as many as those at the center had killed that week..
            Christopher Sean Harper-Mercer. Christian??? I don’t think so. This is what one of the survivors said.One of the injured students, Ana Boylan, who was shot in the back during the attack, told her parents and grandmother that she and others lay on the floor, playing dead. But she said she heard the gunman ask others in the room to rise and state their religion.

            If they said they were Christians, they were shot again, according to Boylan’s grandmother, Janet Willis.

            I’m tired of dealing with your lies already…crawl back into your lie infested hole.

          • My talking points stand. I wasn’t talking about 9/11, dumbo. I said the recent mass shooters obtained their guns legally, and were born here. They had no criminal records and some of them were vets.
            Try to pay attention next time.

            The notion that illegal guns are he problem is absurdly ridiculous. Blacks who kill blacks usually do it because of drug turf wars. They don’t randomly kill people on the streets, except for innocent bystanders accidentally shot.

          • Religious bigotry in a Nation founded on religious freedom.
            You insult everything our Founders fought and died for.
            You insult the first casualty in thw American Recolution.
            You insult America’s longest ally.

          • When the founding fathers were around, no religion had declared war on us. Today, a cult, a Godless, bloodthirsty cult disguised as a religion, has done just that.
            What is an “American Recolution”?
            How have I insulted France?

          • Typical Liberal, being able to Vote ten times (1000% divided by 100%, must live in Chicago, “Vote early, Vote often”) Have they purged the Dead Voters from the rolls yet?

          • Too bad there is no evidence this has ever happened.

          • We the People do not elect a President.
            We the People have never elected a President.
            We the People cannot elect President — the Constitution does not permit us to do so.

            Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.
            Start with the Electoral College.
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_College_(United_States)

          • The popular vote almost always [with no fraud] determines how the electoral votes are distributed. I suggest you stop assuming everyone but you is retarded.

          • If you oppose our 2nd Amendment you should leave our country and take that bi@@h Hillary with you. You say your educated and pant over someone not putting a coma I their sentence. Who’s looking uneducated by your standards now? There isn’t anything past 100%.

            By the way if she tries to change the 2nd Amendment you will want to find that hole you crawled out of. There will be a civil war/revolt that will make the last one look like a skirmish. We will be looking for those like you and you will be easy to find. You know…THE ONES WITHOUT GUNS!!

          • Nope- we plan to stay here and remove your guns. Be prepared.

          • That’s funny. Obama and Hillary deny wanting to take away gun rights. Do you have some higher authority than they do,or is that [we] you referred to only a reference to you and that mouse in your pocket?

          • Trump says Hillary opposes the second amendment. When Obama was elected, the racists went out and bought more guns, thinking he would confiscate their guns. I hope Trump is right. Anyone who opposes the 2nd amendment gets my vote.

          • I thought you were an advocate for minority rights. What about the law abiding black,Hispanic and other minorities you would deprive of the right to self defense?

          • Nobody who owns a gun would be law abiding, if I had my way. I would make it illegal to own a gun.

            By the way, you’re forgetting these facts. The recent mass shooters had this in common:

            1 natural born US citizens
            2 legally obtained guns
            3 no criminal record

            There goes your taking points.
            Guns don’t provide self defense:

          • If I had my way I’d know who you were, then I’d let a few of the brothers know you had valuables and were an easy mark….

          • No, I wouldn’t be an easy mark. In fact, I’m more safe because I don’t have a gun in my home, and never will. Gun owners are more likely to have their guns used against them than protect them.

          • Here are the facts you are missing. 1.Beltway sniper;Muslim. 2.Seattle Jewish center shooting;Muslim. 3.Fort Hood shooting;Muslim. 4.NYPD cops shot,Muslims. 5.Little Rock military recruiting center shooting;Muslim. 6.Texas art show attempted shooting:Muslims. 7.Chattanooga recruiting center shooting;Muslim. 8.San Bernardino shootings;Muslim. 9.Orlando shooting;Muslim.

            Mass murder is not something restricted to Muslims.

          • So you are saying these murders were committed in the name of Christ?? Prove it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • There are more murders committed in East St. Louis every year.
            What exactly is your point?

          • If you can’t see a point then this conversation is over. You CAN’T be that stupid. Or can you?

          • Dallas shooter- not Muslim.
            Aurora Colorado theater shooter- not Muslim
            Baton Rouge cop killer- not Muslim

            Probably many more.

            You hate Muslims? Why doesn’t that surprise me?

          • OK,lets dig further.Dallas shooter,Racist, New black panther member who was asked to leave by the leadership for his violent and racist views. [he hated honkeys][Obviously a Democrat] [when was a BP member a Republican]?

          • I detect a pattern:

            1 heterosexual males
            2 legally registered guns
            3 no criminal records
            4 some of them veterans
            5 born in the USA

            Maybe Trump needs to go after the real danger to society and not worry about Muslim immigrants, who are not the problem?

          • I detect an idiot and a fool. Who backs sharia,Trump? Do you know jack shit about Islamic doctrine? Obviously not.

          • I know more about Islam than you, and I also know that Muslims in the US have no interest in Sharia law. That’s rightwing scare tactics at work.

            Again: how many Muslims do you know personally? Give me a number.

          • Owning a gun is immoral and should be illegal.

          • You have one BIG problem. That pesky second amendment.

          • Go to some country that thinks that way….WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE!!!

          • Nope- we don’t want you here. If you haven’t noticed- liberals outnumber conservatives vastly in this country.

          • I noticed you’re a musician. So am I. I’m a concert pianist as my living, and went to Juilliard. What instrument do you play?

          • I play several. Guitar,Bass guitar. Drums and other percussion. I write songs and build guitars. I have played nightclubs fairs,festivals and concerts. I have extensive experience recording with, collaborating with and performing with name musicians. I will not elaborate further. I know how snooty keyboard players can be having played professionally for over 40 years. I know how “educated'” musicians like yourself feel about players of “primitive” music.

          • You’re sadly correct about how we trained musicians feel about pop music. You could say the same for any field in the arts. Why would a Shakespearean actor be respectful of people who play soap operas? There are degrees of quality within aesthetics which aren’t subjective. I learned that when I got my Ph D. There are objective criteria for judging quality in art and a song by Paul McCartney doesn’t stack up to one by Brahms. Just the way it is.

          • I never said I wasn’t trained. It is just the elitist snobbery of leftists and “cultured”people that irks decent people. You discount the intricacies of modern guitar methods as if we guitarists are troglodytes. The guitar finger board is much more complicated than a piano keyboard. I can do things on guitar that are impossible on a keyboard. I can also improvise on the spot. I don’t need a conductor to direct me, or am I limited by the programming of sheet music. As an accomplished bass player and or lead player I can lead a band around by the nose,changing the feel and rhythm of a song at will even changing the time signatures with my playing. Having perfect pitch I can also advise another player which string to bring up to pitch. There are things you can’t learn in a classroom. Respect for other’s abilities,working with others,stage presence,working an audience. Those are things only years of dedication,stage experience and hard work can bring you. Humility and knowing that you are just as human as anyone else is also a virtue to remember. Enjoy some “primitive Pop” things that would make Brahms pull his hair out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfwsR1shno8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dumOc5V_PcE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQxc2-ERPug I dedicate the lyrics to the ELP song to HRC and YOU!!! How do you like the “pop drivel” so far. As for Paul McCartney’s inferiority to you,it is confusing that as a fellow lefty, you choose to dismiss him as an inferior musician I now present you with a song he wrote.produced.engineered and played every instrument on. Can you equal that? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cm2YyVZBL8U Here is proof. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maybe_I%27m_Amazed If you read the entire wicipedia post you will see that this song was rated number 347 in the rolling stone[another left wing rag] ‘s top 500 love songs of all time. Top that. As for the inferiority of Music other than classical,Do you consider yourself better than Itzhack Perlman? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhijZuIWNUA

          • You’re right that Brahms would pull his hair out at that crap. I’m surprised that you don’t have enough musical knowledge to realize that I’m an interpretive artist and have zero interest in improvising or even composing. The line between composer and performer was sharply drawn in the 20th Century. People don’t expect a modern day actor to improvise or write plays. Their role is to bring to life the words written by others. I frankly am extremely bored by improvisation and I can’t stand to sit through jazz. The lack of musical structure and incessant and annoying rhythms grate on my nerves. My husband goes to jazz concerts. I stay home those nights.
            I can’t believe Perlman would sink so low. Billy Joel is a horrible “musician” and person. I know this from personal experience. A Russian pianist I know was hired by him to transcribe his “compositions” into musical notation so they could be published by Schirmer. Billy cannot read music, of course. She spent hours and hours writing this crap out from listening to tapes of him playing it. At the end of the project he refused to pay her, although they had a contract. He said he thought she should be honored to be connected to him and she was just a young student. She sued him and won. He’s a creep.

          • I’ve met Perlman as a student. I remember being alone with him in the elevator at Juilliard. He was very nice and we had a pleasant conversation one on one. A violinist, who I’ve recorded the three Brahms Violin Sonatas with, was a Perlman student and he says he’s a great teacher and mentor.

            This is the most “out there” piece I’ve performed as a soloist. It’s Messiaen’s massive Turangalila Symphony and has jazz elements. It holds the record as the longest piano concerto. It’s ten movements and lasts an hour and twenty minutes. When I performed it we had an intermission after the 5th movement. Like this pianist, I had my score with me, because the conductor forbade me from playing it from memory. I actually did have most of it memorized. It’s very well written for the piano:

            https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8PjyCpRKDrk

          • Paul McCartney is a fake. He cannot read music, and I’m embarrassed and ashamed that my alma mater gave him an honorary doctorate. That lowers the worth of my own degree and does not make me happy. There is no chance he could play the 68 piano concertos I’ve performed over the years. It’s not possible. He’s an entertainer and I do not consider him a musician. Maybe you think differently?

          • You realize there are things a piano can do which no other instrument can do? I can play an entire symphony on the piano, because our range allows it. The piano also can produce a volume of sound which rivals a 70 piece orchestra and without any artificial amplification. There’s a good reason the piano has historically been the preferred instrument in concertos. We have well over 2500 piano concertos. There is no other instrument remotely close to that.

          • Progressive Republican

            Well, there’s this…

          • Oh, you can be guaranteed I’ll be ready. As opposed to you lily livered panty wastes, I was in the Marines for 10 years, had to leave after Grenada having had my shoulder blown out. I took an oath to protect my country and to protect the constitution … Yeah, that includes the 2nd Amendment. Stupid pukes like you have turned our once great country into a wasteland of immoral practice and illegals … You come and get our guns, we serve them up hot. Maybe your piano can slow a pop gun down….it won’t slow anything down I’ve got.

            As far as your and you’re…when the time comes you’re going to get your ass handed to you.

          • Liberals are smarter than you dumbass conservatives. We will get your guns.
            Build your bunker now. Take lots of Kool-aid with you.

          • The word you wanted was you’re. Please learn the differences between these words:
            You’re and your
            There, their and they’re
            Border and boarder
            Whether and weather
            We’re and were

            Conservatives have a hard time with those words.

          • Kinda like liberals and math
            There is no 1000% dummy

          • Sure there is. It’s multiplying 100 times ten.

          • Progressive Republican

            It’s called an ‘order of magnitude’.

            Catch up.

          • Typical liberal brain disease.
            Order of magnitude has to do with numbers not percentages.

            Order of magnitude
            Orders of magnitude are written in powers of 10. For example, the order of magnitude of 1500 is 3, since 1500 may be written as 1.5×103.

            Differences in order of magnitude can be measured on the logarithmic scale in “decades” (i.e., factors of ten).[1] Examples of numbers of different magnitudes can be found at Orders of magnitude (numbers).

            We say two numbers have the same order of magnitude of a number if the big one divided by the little one is less than 10. For example, 23 and 82 have the same order as their increment number can be found inside the numbers affiliated number by timing the 1-3 f magnitude, but 23 and 820 do not.

            — John C. Baez[2]

            You catch up. lol

          • Progressive Republican

            Orders of magnitude and percentages both have to do with numbers.

            What an idiot.

          • Again, you show how a liberal wants to twist something to fit their stupidity. Orders of magnitude have to do with just numbers. Apparently you don’t understand the definition. Oh, and it has nothing to do with the falicy that there is something that is 1000%
            Morons like you are the reason why this saying was made up “if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit”

          • Progressive Republican

            So, an idiot and a liar then.

            shocking

          • Not so shocking, a vast majority of you are both. What’s shocking is you live in that dillusional world that what’s yours is your and what’s mine is yours. Socialists have a sense of entitlement that goes way beyond reason well into fantasyland. So buckle up there chuckles because there will be one of two things that will come down the road….things will either start swinging back to the right or the right will start swinging. I don’t want to see it happen but if a civil war is the only way to stop you stupid clowns, then let it happen…I’m sick of paying for you PHUCKS

          • Progressive Republican

          • You will probably be one of the first shot.
            I certainly would not look to you to protect anyone.

          • Guns don’t provide defense. I don’t need your help. Real men don’t need guns.

          • Killary is a corrupt politician. Proof is in the pudding cupcake. The DNC emails alone show this.

          • What’s a pudding cupcake?

          • Progressive Republican

            I got some from Spain. It’s a cupcake with pudding in it.

          • …knows how to get elected? How’d that work for her last time??!

          • There is no greater bigot than a progressive. THink not? DNC started the KKK. DNC wrote the Jim Crow laws. BO has worsened race relations by seeing everything through his communist eyes.

          • I don’t want a PC president. Political correctness is one the major problems with this nation.

          • Progressive Republican

            So you’re fed up with what you call a ‘congenital liar’ and will thus vote for a congenitally pathological liar.

            And you think this will make things better how… ?

          • The primary difference is that Hillary is a career politician, Trump isn’t. They both may be liars, but at least Trump offers something different from the last 8 years.

          • HildaBEAST – Think What a freaking oxymoron!!

          • No your views don’t represent he majority of Americans. You just wish they did.

          • Progressive Republican

            Actually, they do. Not only do they accurately represent the facts viz the majority of Americans opinions and attitudes on guns, they reflect the same opinions and attitudes of NRA members on the same subject.

          • Your views are not representative of the majority of Americans. 300+ million legal firearms owners say differently.

          • Progressive Republican

            Thus showing just how big an idiot you truly are.

            They are.

            How conservative.

            Yes, the avatar implying the similarities between the two.

          • Really; gun ownership is between 41-52%. Population smidge over 300 million – obviously maths not your strong point or any coherent argument.

          • Where? San Francisco?

          • Hardly. You’re a fool. A Naïve idiot. And a moron.

          • I read the news. You read liberal Marxist propaganda.

          • I watch PBS and a wide range of other outlets. I watch Fox to laugh at how silly their propaganda is.

          • A wide range of other outlets? That would be MSNBC and CNN, right? Both proven biased liars for Hillary and the Demoncraps.

          • Typical conservative diversionary tactic: attack the source because you cannot address the issues. I get it. Yawn.

            Conservatives often complain that liberals control the media or the show business or the academia or some other social institutions. The Hypothesis explains why conservatives are correct in their complaints. Liberals do control the media, or the show business, or the academia, among other institutions, because, apart from a few areas in life (such as business) where countervailing circumstances may prevail, liberals control all institutions. They control the institutions because liberals are on average more intelligent than conservatives and thus they are more likely to attain the highest status in any area of (evolutionarily novel) modern life.

          • They’re smarter because they lie and omit facts? Distort the facts? If you think that way, We’re done here.

          • They’re smarter because they don’t attack every news source as being liberal. Statistics are not a liberal plot. They are what they are.

          • Since coming to office in 2009, Obama’s government has deported more than 2.5 million people—up 23% from the George W. Bush years. More shockingly, Obama is now on pace to deport more people than the sum of all 19 presidents who governed the United States from 1892-2000, according to government data.

            And he’s not done yet. With the clock ticking down his final months in office, Obama appears to be running up the score in an effort to protect his title as deporter-in-chief from future presidents. To pad the numbers, Homeland Security is now going after the lowest-hanging fruit: women and children who are seeking asylum from violence in Central America….

          • More “cooking of the books”. Perhaps your “wide range of other outlets” have not mentioned how CENTCOM was ordered to lie and distort the figures of the war against ISIS to make it appear we are winning.

          • Nope. Just facts. At least you didn’t attack my sources, as most conservatives do. That’s the most lame and tired behavior of you people. It gets tiresome.

            No; statistics are not a liberal plot.

          • Correct, statistics are not a liberal plot. Altered statistics, however, are. And what do you mean by “you people”? Sounds racist to me.

          • Too bad my stats weren’t altered.

          • “You people” means conservatives- the enemies of the American people. You know who I meant.

          • It is your kind who is the enemy. The war has begun in Milwaukee. And we don’t take prisoners. Especially cat lovers.

          • When will you stop killing innocent black men? You brought this on yourselves. Disarm police now!!

          • There are no innocent black men. Disarm the police?? There’s a real stroke of genius. The police need fully automatic weapons now.

          • Yes there are innocent black men, like the one in Minneapolis.

            The U.K., Japan and New Zealand have a disarmed police force which does not carry guns. I’ve been there, have you?

          • If you are referring to Prince, he OD’ed. I’ve been to Japan and the UK. They do not have the problems with minorities that we do, although Britain is rethinking things because of the moose slime issue.

          • No, I’m referring to the innocent black man that was shot dead in his car, after he voluntarily told the cop he had a legal gun in his car. It’s proof of two things: cops don’t know what the hell they’re doing. Guns don’t protect anyone and owning one puts your life in danger.

            Minorities aren’t the problem. Guns are the problem: Americans are ten times more likely to die by gunshot.

          • So, the gun did it? Not the butler holding the gun. Your mother drank heavily when she was carrying you, didn’t she?

          • Thanks for proving what a dumbass you are.

          • Just telling the truth. Guns kill people. That’s what they’re designed to do. Trucks aren’t designed to kill anyone, they transport people and goods.

          • Congratulations. You have just advanced into the top ten group of moronic pieces of shit I have met here.

          • Too bad you’re too stupid to understand that guns are designed to kill. That’s their purpose. Nukes were designed to kill, and that’s why we’re working to eliminate them.

            I’m not the first to point out that guns kill:

            https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human-beast/201607/guns-really-are-the-cause-shootings

          • Is that what they’re for? And here I am using mine for paper weights! Syphilis has turned your brain into Swiss cheese. And here is how we can eliminate nukes: USE THEM!!

          • I don’t have syphilis. You’re Kool-Aid drinking has turned you into a bumbling idiot.

            I sent you two articles by different authors which come to the same conclusion:

            Yes, guns do kill people. That’s what they exist for.

            Read them again. Maybe a little slower next time:

          • You sound like that braindead Daniel loser.

          • You are that crazy drunken cunt. Your spelling and punctuation are exactly alike. 3rd grade at best. And I doubt you are going to Iran. Most trailer park residents are not in possession of a passport. You are lucky if you get to the corner 7-11.

          • You are one nasty, vile whore. I’m going to hunt you down. Crucifying you will be the high point of my life. Death to you, death to your husband, death to your children, death to all cats.

          • Reported for violent threats.

          • Everyone needs to be disarmed, including police. I feel less safe here than I would on Iran, where my husband and I are planning to visit.

          • Do us all a favor, when you visit Iran, just stay there. You’ll be happier, we will be happier. It’s a win-win for all!

          • Nope, I’m staying here and voting for Hillary, as are the rest of us patriots.

          • You’re a traitor and traitors get hung.

          • Yawn. Why do you hate America?

          • Is there such a thing as a disarmed police force that DOES carry guns??!! You are so severely retarded I’m amazed that you can remember to breath.

          • I have been to Germany, France, Austria, Czech Republic, Japan, Guam, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippians. All those people, in all those countries, agree that you should be incarcerated.

          • All those people have paid me money to come to their countries and perform on the piano. Guam isn’t a country.

          • What do you perform on the piano, fellatio?

          • Your morals are a bit off.

          • linda Schlachter

            I have great morals. I go to church and treat people like they should be treated. I was a nurse for over 40 yrs and never more liked than by my pts and staff. This is election and i think Hillary is an egotistical and only cares for Hillary. I never said anything but get your nose out of her behind. If that’s offensive to you then you need to stop posting on what other people says. I’m entitled to my beliefs as are you. She got blood on her hands , emails that would have been criminal to someone else. Being 70 yrs old i will vote for Trump. I can respect him, not Hillary.

            I am so not impressed.
            The Clinton e-mails arw not criminal.
            The law enforcement community has stated that repeatedly.

          • I never said nothing foul mouth and i think you hate people whom stand up for their rights. You don’t know nothing about me, you don’t know i just buried a daughter and I take my faith seriously. So don’t throw stones unless you’ve walked in my shoes. The emails Comey said was illegal, the deaths in Bengazi and she lied to the family. All the money shes sent to Saudia and arms. All the deaths that have been under her that was suspicious. Hush fund money going to Clinton Foundation. Her husband a sexual predator. And you think you’ll have a life after she brings in the Isis. You are one dumb person.

          • Oh hell it’s not that I’d ever use it, not unless the government oversteps anyway I thank the founding fathers and the patriots of the American revolution, lots of blood was shed in order to keep law and order

          • Guns don’t keep law and order. Guns create chaos.

          • Guns do protect citizens from total government control. Government fears citizens with guns, and citizens without guns fear government. It’s sad that you have had access to so many of Americas young people.

          • That’s false. Guns don’t protect anyone.

          • charles johnston

            Don’t read do you? There are stories every day of people protecting themselves and others because they have a gun. And don’t ask me to show you. You would not read them if I did, and you won’t look for yourself. Ignorance can be cured with information. Stupid goes all the way to the bone.

          • I read plenty. Including the fact that guns don’t provide protection. As a victim of gun violence, I know more about this than you do. I also have a dead relative who killed himself with his own gun.

            And your point, poor baby. . . oh, that’s right. You don’t have one. There are mjillions of guns in our country today that hurt nobody and thousands that responded to home break-ins, attempted muggings, robery. . . oh yeah I forgit. Those don’t fit the liberal- your- agenda, so they are only reported locally. And if you read the guardian, you should find a less biased rag.

          • My point:

            Americans are ten times more likely to die by gunshot than any other developed country:

          • Stupid moron now? Wow, you ignorant libs have very thin skins, huh? And tell all that to France while you’re at ie, Or Belgium. Dam, snag brain, are you ignorant.

          • You don’t know what we do or don’t do. You truly are a libtard narcissist afraid of his own shadow.

          • Totally false and perfectly ignorant. That’s why the founders included the 2nd amendment and, in extensive writings, which I doubt you ever heard of or read, said exactly why it’s there and what it’s for.

          • Really? “Good” Christians watched it happen.
            In fact, they helped the Nazis.

          • Obama and The Hildebeasts good friend George Soros helped it happen. Look it up if you’re so smart. Soros a Hungarian Jew sold out his fellow Jews to the Nazis to save his own skin!

          • Maybe you should read all the stories about how many lives were saved by people with guns. Guns don’t create chaos, people do.

          • OK. Let the criminals be the only ones that have them. You can live there, since you’re used to the insanity.

          • Too bad the mass shooters had this in common:

            1 they were born in the US and not immigrants
            2 they legally obtained their guns
            3 they had no criminal record

          • independent thinker

            Says one who is so far behind me she gave up on ever finishing.

          • Too bad you never had any higher education.

          • One adjusts their language to the level best understoof by the reader.

          • Oh, damn…. You’re a dude??? Try defending yourself and your familyat one of these despicable events… Theaters, anyone? Malls, maybe?? Those of us that are prepared and willing to REALLY defend ourselves and other innocents won’t be counted as willing victims. You can play sheep if you’d like…

          • Except that almost never happens.
            It is simply a justification, excuse even.

          • Too bad guns don’t provide protection. The victims in Orlando can tell you. There were two good guys with guns, including an off duty police officer who was working as a security guard. They didn’t provide squat:

          • LMAO.. You think you are a real man? You probably couldn’t fight your way out of a wet paper sack

          • As a college professor, I do more free thinking in a day than you’ve done your whole lifetime. Get out of Ohio and see the real world. You live in a backwards place that is two decades behind. I know, I grew up there and visit once a year.

          • I’ll happily stay here where the ohio Constitution also says if I want to carry my A.K.- 47 at midnight on Easter than I have the right. You may want to check with the Clinton’s campaign I think they have a check for you from all the pointless comments you’ve submitted here…I hear they’re hiring solicitor’s to go door knocking

          • We’re coming for your guns. Build your bunker now.

          • How are you going to force us to give you our guns? Are you going to throw oranges are us and say, “If you don’t give up your gun, I throw this cantaloupe at you?” Or will you approach us armed to the teeth with GUNS to come and take away ours?

          • An Excellent post!

          • Liberals are smarter than conservatives. You keep forgetting this.

          • Only an idiot believes that…

          • For the record, if you are going to post links to sites make sure they’re actual medical sites and not liberal sites with an agenda.

          • Here’s the medical link. I spared people having to read all 25 pages. The article I originally posted gives a summary. Here’s the whole thing:

            https://personal.lse.ac.uk/kanazawa/pdfs/SPQ2010.pdf

          • Another liberal site with an agenda, disguised as a medical site. Please. Find a neutral site that doesn’t insult people who aren’t liberals.

          • Did you read his credentials? He’s a British Libertarian, without an agenda. So you view all professional organizations as liberal? Wow! I don’t blame you, because liberals are more educated and In control of media and so forth.

          • The American Socioligical Association is a liberal organization? Really?

          • You are displaying a typical conservative tactic: attack the source because you cannot address the substance. I get it.

          • The substance is insulting, which is why I’m not going to address it. I’m not going to waste time addressing the biased “substance” on a site that does nothing but mock conservatives. All the site basically does is parrot your “liberals are smarter than conservatives” beliefs. It’s NOT science, and it’s NOT facts.

          • It is facts and I’m sorry it makes you feel bad. I didn’t write it. The author is Libertarian. If any bias was present, it should have been towards the right. Are you a social scientist? I’m not claiming I am, but Kanazawa is and is highly regarded.

          • Try taking away the guns from the radical muslime terrorist that your precious Killary is supporting and bringing to AMERICA! She will GIVE them the guns she stole from the Americans!! THEN you will have a valid reason to be scared of guns!!

          • You hate Musiims?

            Shocker….

          • independent thinker

            Just be sure YOU are in front leading the charge.

          • Liberals are smarter than conservatives. You keep forgetting that.

          • independent thinker

            Bwahaaaa HaHaHa you so funny, or would be if you were not so pathetic.

          • Too bad you’re stupid.

          • Lol. Sure you are…
            College professor..
            That says it all.
            Free thinker? Lol
            Only within the parameters big brother has set for you.

          • Stupid. Conservatives are retards.

          • Try… You’ll just open up that other side of the Constitution..

          • So you like that Russian Kalashnikov?

          • Ah you answered my question. I do need info on another topic prof, why do you thinkers of supreme intelligence attack american rights of religion, but yet do not say a word about muslim (Islam) faith?

          • Who is attacking anyone’s faith?

            You hate Muslims?

            A shocker.

          • American freedom of religion includes Muslims.
            Islam has been part of this country since before it became a nation.

          • That explains everything! Your problem is you’re a brainwashed brainwasher!

          • I teach music. I have never mentioned a word of politics in any class. It’s not appropriate to my field. I get that you fear education. Education expands your brain and makes you liberal.

          • I have no fear of education! It’s “educated ” liberals like you that just don’t get it. If you did you would know that socialism fails every time it is applied! Your brain washing of young minds full of mush is destroying our youth due to the liberal revisionist history being taught by your “expanded liberal brain”!

          • Socialismis thriving in Europe. Go visit Sweden.

          • Yawn! Thriving until it runs out of other people’s money. If it so great when are you leaving the U.S?

          • I’m staying here and enjoying the fact our country is swinging to the left. Apparently you didn’t notice that we finally had a candidate who is socialist and the young people loved him. Conservativism is dying. Only the stupid people in red states cling to the GOP. Your days are numbered.

          • Sweden has plenty of money.

            It’s ironic that the conservative red states are the states which take the most money in federal aid. What happened to your hatred of big government?

            Why don’t you have your civil war you’ve been threatening? We blue states will be happy to see the red states leave. Kiss those checks goodbye.

          • To me, you sound like an educated idiot that went to college to learn how to say eloquent words that do nothing except to deceive. You think in your mind, not your heart, by being so educated you are now a God. Should that be the case perform a miracle. Can you walk on water, make the blind to see, feed thousands with two fishes and three loaves of bread with twelve baskets left over? It is apparent the so called educated have created the mess the world is in today. By the way, what secret sorority do you belong to, The Shriners?

          • Stupid. I went to Juilliard, which is a music conservatory. Speaking English want even a requirement, and they don’t even require SAT test scores. All that matters is your ability to play your instrument at world class level.

          • Better hope your instrument can stop bullets

          • You don’t pay attention. I worked in Harlem for seven years. I’ve been a victim of gun violence. I’ve also had a relative who killed himself with his own gun. Why do you think him anti-gun?

          • Yeah… That’s showing in that last post… And no entry requirements of an educational sort and you can be a professor?? No WONDER!!

          • I’m a professor because I’m very smart. I was pointing out that my alma mater actually requires real personal talent. They do not care what your test scores are. It is irrelevant.

          • Yep I have seen the “Free thinking” of College professors, it is in a haze of chemicals
            and saul alinska books when you are sober enough to see them. College professors
            are people who cannot find real work in the real word and have to hide in dark cornors
            with others of the same ilk. So Sad, never to enjoy the real freedom of going forth
            into the world to actually work for a living and live off of the rewards it give you.

          • I’m a concert pianist and have done more work than you can ever dream of doing.

          • Congratulation on being a pianist, I know it take a lot of time, effort and in many cases
            sacrifice to achieve the skills required and the memory to become good at your craft.
            But apparently you only teach other to perform and perhaps even inspire some to
            pursue their skill as a means to make a living. I have met many around the world
            in various lands who are excellent pianist and actually make a living by playing in
            a public forum. They also enjoy hunting, fishing and other sports to maintain a
            healthy life style. Being a college professor is not any claim to fame base upon
            the mental attitude we see on the college campuses today.

          • Thank you, yes it does take sacrifice and time. I like to work out in my spare time. It helps my mental focus, as well as physical stamina

          • They say ignorance is bliss.
            You seem very blissful.
            You don’t know the first thing about Alinski, or his books.
            You also do not now the first thing avout teaching, or the work that is required, let alone the education that must come first.

          • ????????
            well stated!

          • Another one who is leading America into the trash pile based on ignorance and lack of common sense..

          • Schools are still under state and local government.
            Your post says a great deal about your lack of education and inability to grasp widely available data.

          • You’re wasting time with this dude….he will never change.

          • Yes! TRUMP 2016!

          • Are you realy sure this is what you want:
            “I’ll beat the crap out of you.” Kansas City
            “Part of the problem … is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore.” St. Louis
            “The audience hit back. That’s what we need a little bit more of.” St. Louis
            “Try not to hurt him. If you do, I’ll defend you in court, don’t worry about it.” Michigan
            “I’d like to punch him in the face.” Las Vegas
            “Knock the crap out of them.” Iowa
            “Maybe he should have been roughed up.” Alabama
            “I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will.” Press Conference
            “In the good old days this doesn’t happen because they used to treat them very, very rough.” NC

          • Your level of brainwashing says you are anything but free.

          • “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future” —-declared Adolf Hitler in 1935. Hitler was also a pagan, an environmentalist, and a vegetarian. Nazi marriages were often performed under the protection of “Mother Earth” and “Father Sky”. In that respect our Eco-Nazis (my name for the so-called “environmentalists”) follow closely Hitler’s philosophy. But why wonder? Both belong to the army of far-left goons.

          • Let me make an educated guess: This far-left cretin “No2Guns” is probably a retired government employees union goon.

          • Not even close. I’m a concert pianist. My day job is as professor at a private Catholic university.

          • Excellent camouflage! I can see you sitting in a SF sidewalk café with your far-left friends discussing the finer points of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto with his cry “Expropriate expropriators!” – whereby the poor used to have all the money and then came those capitalist swine who stole it all. Right?

          • He’s not a professor.

          • I’m socialist, not communist, you idiot. Fascism is far right.

          • Tube Steak Nopantz

            Socialism is the same thing as Communism look it up if you don’t think so. Wikipedia, Daniel Webster dictionary etc. Read it genius!

          • Nope, they are different. I consider the socialism of Sweden to be nothing like communism.

          • Hello cretin – I finally forced you to declare yourself a SOCIALIST. Just like in the USSR – Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.

          • Oh look! Another online Ph.d! Not many of them around!

          • Oh look, my Ph D is quite real.

          • Let me guess: you have no education. You hate Muslims, blacks, gays and immigrants. You’re intensely nationalistic and you support Trump. In other words, you’re a Neo-Nazi. It’s smart of you to study the history of Hitler, because you know what Trump will do next.

          • Komrad commie – I am a former refugee from a communist hell; I also have degrees in Engineering; MS and PhD from UCLA, in addition to my European degrees. My IQ was measured at 165. And you creep is an uneducated POS of the far-left.

          • Your IQ is quite low if you’re a conservative. I also have a Ph D and teach at a Catholic university in Sam Francisco. You couldn’t find a better field than engineering?

          • LOL San Francisco? No credibility at all.

          • I’m sorry you are jealous, but I totally get it.

          • You didn’t say what field your PhD is in! My guess it is in multi-cultural languages!! After all you use big words like PUSSY AND TURD BRAIN!! Does the Catholic university that you indoctorinate um, I mean teach KNOW that you ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN?? In another post I know you stated that being a card carrying Christian was NOT FOR YOU!! It is easy to KNOW that you are against anything Christian just by the fact that you support Killary! I can only hope that a parent who’s child attends the university that you CLAIM you teach at will read some of your posts and petition to have you removed from your “teaching” job!! And we wonder why our country is in the shape it is in!! Look what we have “teaching” our children!!!
