    La PIerre gets a million bucks a year, if that gives anyone a clue how much is in the bags.

    This cartoon shows what the career politicians value most. The members of both parties will serve their donors well and after working long enough to enrich themselves through insider trading and the manipulation of donations to their campaigns, they will, in many cases, leave to work for those donors as lobbyists, consultants, or some other post. In addition, they will take the substantial benefits with which both parties have gifted themselves and never want for healthcare or a pension.

    @ Masterkrain - I would beg to differ with you Masterkain, and I do so reluctantly as I find your posts to be ones with which I usually find much agreement. I have learned from you. However –
    One of the reason the A bomb was used in Japan instead an invasion was that the guns in that nation guaranteed casualties among invading forces near or above one million. One of the reasons that Switzerland was not attacked by Germany was the presence of so many citizens who could survive in the mountains and who had the skills of a sharpshooter. The second amendment not only protects Americans from the mostly fictional threat of a suddenly hostile American gov’t, but it also makes countries, like China, whose standing army nearly exceeds the population of our entire country, from even considering a conventional invasion.
    Guns do not make us strong, our people make us strong. When our people are civil, respectful, educated, and given a reason to believe in our nation, guns are not an issue.
    The threat we face is represented by the many extremists of every group who are so desperate to have their own way, they are willing to destroy everything in order to have their own little place be just the way they want it.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “Maybe it’s time to repeal the Second Amendment…”

    Great idea. Hitler didn’t have to contend with one and look at all he accomplished!

    Great idea. Hitler didn’t have to contend with one and look at all he accomplished!

    Germany was forced to pass a law banning most private gun ownership, after losing WWI in 1919. In 1938, Hitler passed a new law broadly increasing the right to own guns.

    Hitler seized power, despite the fact that authorities had guns, but his supporters did not.

    Actually, we don’t need to repeal the amendment, we need to interpret it sensibly. Most people ignore the beginning of it: “A well regulated Militia”. That means (1) they’re talking about needing a militia, not anybody who wants a gun and (2) it says “regulated”. That’s not my word, that’s in the second amendment.

    @Respectful Troll

    RT, I think the notion that private arsenals are a deterrent to invasion is ridiculous. The difference between a professional army & a rag tag bunch of resistors is much greater than it was in 1776. China & Russia are checked by our professional army (and a couple of oceans), not any concern over onguard’s weapons.

    If the Germans wanted to invade Switzerland, they could have done so. The Swiss government had a plan to cede the lowlands to the Nazis & retreat to Alpine fortresses. This was a plan for the Swiss Army, not the populace. They would have held out only until their supplies were exhausted. Switzerland imported half their food & all their fuel.

    The fact that Hitler was busy elsewhere, along with many Swiss concessions to the Nazis was all that staved off invasion.

    What’s so bad about actually putting the repeal of the Second Amendment to the people to decide?
    Use the constitutional process for the repeal of an amendment, and let’s see if there is actually sufficient public support.
    Or is the NRA afraid it might actually LOSE that battle?


    I don’t think the support is there… yet. If the 2nd Amendment fundamentalists continue to oppose any attempt at reform, that will change. It will be ironic if the 2nd Amendment is repealed because of those who say they are defending it.

    @Uncle Joe

    I hope you are right, Uncle Joe. As far as the Swiss goes, I did a very little bit of reading after another commentator spoke to me about it in my sanesaint@hotmail.com email. I need to do more and am grateful for the info you added to my too little knowledge.
    I truly believe it is our submarine fleet that is the greatest deterrent to invasion. As long as our enemies are unable to locate them with certainty, or stop our missiles in mid flight, I think we are safe from invasion.
    I almost always agree with your comments and my disagreement with this one is kind of weak and very nuanced.
    Thank you for your patience and your continuing education of readers here.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    No, no, no, no, no. It’s okay if a Republican does it.

    It’s not the guns…It’s the HATE, DIS-RESPECT, and SELF-INVOLVEMENT. This is a malady that has afflicted mankind since the beginning of Man. If you want to fix mankind you give them the Truth and the capacity to live up to it.

    “Good for nothing laws which only get in the way of keeping everybody safe and secure; the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the fourth amendment… more to come, check back regularly.

    A gross representative sampling of items which, due to their peril and the harm they bring to the citizens, shall be banned.

    Guns
    Twinkies
    Cell phones
    Cars
    Planes
    Burgers

    Protecting people, for their own good, whether they like it or not."
    -
    Someone is trying to ban all those things? Or any of them?
