Yes, we have laws to address most any facet of our society. We do not have gun control laws that would prevent a situation where a criminal can possess more fire power than our police departments.
If the weapons were not available to anyone, criminals would not be able to buy or steal them.
Before your head explodes let me say, firearms have been part of my life since I can remember. Within a few steps from where I sit there are several weapons.
There is only one purpose for assault style weapons. To assault an enemy combatant with overwhelming fire power.
They are not suitable and in most places, not legal for game hunting. If you open up on a deer with an M1a4 with a 50 round drum clip, it will be pretty much ground up.
It is a formidable problem. But it is not beyond our ability to solve. After all, the answers are within us.
It’s the little things that botherand put us on the rackYou can sit upon a mountainbut you can’t sit on a tack.
We just need to break it down into smaller parts. The parts that are close enough and obvious enough that we simply cannot ignore it. You can move a mountain, bit by bit.
You accuse someone of ‘ethnic hatred’, by what logic is unknown. Then you accuse everyone else of ‘playing the race card’. I call you on it and you deflect, accusing me of what you are doing.
Ethnic hatred, inter-ethnic hatred, racial hatred, or ethnic tension refers to feelings and acts of prejudice and hostility towards an ethnic group in various degrees. See list of anti-ethnic and anti-national terms for specific cases
I think you need to get out more. People will shun you at first, but if you try you may find a place where you fit in. Maybe. Doubtful, but give it a try.
Pretty is as pretty does.
A person is never quite as wholesome as they describe themselves. Their true nature comes out in their deeds.
There is no way I can review for you all the statements and actions Trump has displayed, from the moment he declared his candidacy until he called Netanyahu and had Omar and Tlaib barred from entering Israel. ( And I don’t think you could understand it if I could or would.)
They are American citizens, elected to represent their constituents in Congress. When they took their oath of office, they swore to defend and protect the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. They do not legislate by Sharia law. Religious laws do not apply to our government. Not Muslim. Not Christian. Not Judaism. Or any of those others. O. K.?
They are not the only Muslims serving in Congress, but they are the only ones being assaulted by Trump and his sycophants. They scare him. It seems the only knowledge you have of Muslims is your exposure to Al Quaeda and ISIS.
They have never said the things Trump and others have attributed to them.
It scares the shit out of white people when some person of color refuses to be intimidated by their ‘supremacy’. They cannot accept uppity attitudes.
All you (anyone suffering from whititis) have to do if you don’t want to be identified as racist, xenophobic, mysogynistic, etcetera ad infinitum, don’t act like it.
…furtherAdversaries: Sucks up to every dictator/oligarch/tyrant in the world. Takes the word of Putin over our intelligence officers. Has an open love affair with Kim Jong-un. Has made no new initiatives to combat terrorism. He has assumed a cowardly stance to all adversaries. Who bowed to terrorist supporters?
Republicans also disagree with Trump’s border policies. When they controlled both houses, they would not approve funding for his pet project. It is not “anti-US”. We have immigration laws and Trump is avoiding them. This is a democratically governed Republic. Trump and all his sycophants need to recognize that.
He is blocking legal immigrants by not allowing their requests for asylum to be processed. He has made it ‘illegal’ to apply for immigration.. . Reduced the processing of illegals, causing a back-log and filling detainment centers. The detainment is done mostly by private companies who receive $700 to $800 per person per day, so there is not much initiative to move them out. Trump hires illegals. He wants to make immigration his path to another term.
There would be no reason for you to go on. I hear all your talking points on Faux. You don’t have any new or different information. What you are getting from Faux is not news. Fox has cameras and reporters at the same events as the news networks. How come they don’t report it? They have to have everything edited by Trump.
Industry leaders always claim regulations are hurting them, regardless of income. No business has folded because of regulation. How many new businesses have opened? How many have closed? Since 2016, twenty seven successful start-ups. Only two outside the tech industry. (Business Insider) Some moved out of the country looking for better business environments. (I also looked at Clark Media.) Check how many retailer closed stores or folded out-right. Hundreds of shut-downs/closings.Climate problems will out-strip any gains.
Agreed. Unemployment is down. Thanks, Obama. Wages are up, but not by much. “The $6 increase may not seem like much, but it’s still almost a 2 percent increase above the rate of inflation over the course of just three quarters, and that runs counter to the point Pelosi was trying to make.” This is an average of weekly wages. I would like to know the high end and low end wages. Maybe you can find it in your studies. Tip: don’t ask Fox.
Every administration has to deal with trade problems. Trump just doesn’t do it very well. Zero social graces. Tariff: 1. a tax or duty to be paid on a particular class of imports or exports.The idea of a tariff is to raise the prices of imports. We buy those goods at higher prices. Importers pay more, we pay more.What jobs have come back to the U.S.? Farmers are unable to sell crops. That on top of a very bad planting season.
Tough love. Until he gets face to face. Then he pees himself.
NATO allies not ‘paying their share’. NATO is not a dues-paying club. The agreement is that they should invest 2% of their GDP towards defense and military service. Some do. Some don’t. Trump is not the first to deal with it. Sometimes, if it comes down to my bar bill or my grocery bill? I really don’t need to eat so much. :-)
Skin like tissue paper. They always play the ‘poor Jew’ card.
I suppose that miniscule number of Arabs living in ‘Palestine’ built the Dome of the Rock temple while they were so poor and ignorant, sometime after 1940 or so.
It is O K for Jews to persecute Palestinian Arabs. It is not O K for anyone to so much as disagree with Jews.
Just put andylit in the bag with Miller and Cuccinelli. He is on a white me only rant. No truth, no fact and no amount of reasoning, like immigrants, can enter there.
Ethical hatred? How did you read that into the post?
I don’t care if she believes in Pink Unicorns. Sharia law has no force in our legislation. We have other Muslims in congress and we haven’t seen Islamic Sharia law replace the constitution. Also, we haven’t heard anyone setting their hair on fire because they serve I our congress. But the four Muslim women? Suddenly they are a danger?
Every time Israel perceives even the hint of a slight, they go into their ‘poor me baby’ mode. They play the Jew card. I cannot imagine any leader of any nation submitting themselves to Trump, as Netanyahu did. I suppose he, too, is shameless.
Lighten up on the sisters. Trump lashes out at them because they scare him. Let’s not ride that train. Friends.
What price did Israel pay for that chunk of dirt?
Israel was mandated by the U.N. They ‘partitioned’ Palestine. None of the land belonged to Jews, as a nation. They took Palestinian land and gave it to the Jews. When they bought out as many Palestinians as they could, they started driving them out by force.
