    I agree Rallsolo, raise taxes and fix the infrastructure, make it advantageous to invest in America instead of offshore accounts.
    Remember that the strength of America is in the poor and the middle class, not just the wealthy.

    How’s about we go back to the concept of gun ownership leading in one side of A WELL-REGULATED militia and out the other? The Founders didn’t put the words WELL-REGULATED in the 2nd Amendment by accident, and those words were respected until the 2008 decision penned by Limbaugh’s favorite Supreme Court Justice, Anton Scalia. Let’s get back to the Constitution’s Original Intent, eh, and stop pretending anybody anywhere ought to be prepared to shoot anybody anytime. It’s absurd.

    Many gun deaths are the result of accidents. Everything from a police chief who shot his wife in bed with the gun under his pillow, to the toddler who killed his parent with a handgun found under the couch. Mental health care can’t fix stupid.

    Historically speaking the second amendment was a collective based right (not individual) to form a militia to SUPPRESS (not form) uprisings as in the case of Shay’s Rebellion in 1787 which the Articles of the Confederacy were too weak to prevent. In other words, if a faction of, well, to put in eighteenth century terms, slaves were to rise up in rebellion to the government, the “militia” as designated by Congress (now known as the national guard) has the right to suppress them without the federal government and its army intervening. There’s nothing personal about the second amendment, that’s just a lie fed to us by the NRA beginning around 1960.

    But I wouldn’t expect any Republican to believe me or look it up for themselves…at least at an historical site or within a historical context and NOT at FAUX news.

    rallsolo said, “….. start looking at the real problems and come up with fixes that can generate real change.”
    Have any suggestions beyond “Your ideas won’t work.”
    Didn’t think so….

    Read “Ricochet” by a former NRA lobbyist, and see how the manufacturers ARE the “lobby” , represented by groups in addition to the NRA, which changed radically under LaPierre and associates.

    Fixing things costs money. Are you going to vote “yes” to that tax increase?

    “and stop pretending anybody anywhere ought to be prepared to shoot anybody anytime.”

      You are the only one saying that.
      As to the militia, a well-regulated militia means that people must be prepared to fight.
      You have to already own the guns, the government is not handing them out for any reason. Better stock up so other people don’t have to do your job for you when the time comes.
      I like Limbaugh. He loves America.

      As a liberal you are supposed to think that the Constitution is a “living, breathing” entity. You’re just never happy.
      I like FoxNews. Without Fox, Obama would be officially be dictator because we’d never know about all his lies and manipulations. And since you like to speak historically, you should know the importance of a media outlet that keeps any administration in check.

    Like universal health care, free education, better living conditions and more job opportunities so that drug dealing isn’t a career choice. Things like that. Hey, freedom to own guns isn’t free!

    Actually I’m an independent. But the unintellectual aspects of the republican party, specifically those who listen to the Rush lies (want a list?) are making it VERY difficult to side with them. Evolution is a joke? Planned Parenthood is killing live babies? Yeah, that’s not a party I can really associate with anymore.

    As for the constitution being a living breathing entity, I’m all for eradicating the second amendment. The right is the one that doesn’t want anything to change, just like their Bible.

      Do YOU have any suggestions beyond saying, “Have any suggestions…”? No?

    America, we are number one in gun sales worldwide!
    Providing machines to people who want to use them on anyone who thinks differently from them is our business.
    Who says we don’t make anything anymore?
