Obama Doesn't Care About Dead Children

I dispute the author's contention that these new laws would not prevent such terrible tragedies. The latest investigations done by an Eastern based university show very clearly that the states with strong gun laws have the least number of mass shootings and other gun related crime.

Madame your ideology is disgusting, perverse and immoral! I wonder sometimes what happened to you in your formative years. It must have been exceedingly destructive of your conscience. You certainly don't have one today!

Your arguments are disgusting!
The truth that is missed in this article is that the majority of Americans now support "gay"marriage! Some evengelicals don't and that is their right but in a democracy the majority rule.
Point well taken!

Why the No-Fly List Doesn't Fly

A no fly list without a means of removing an innocent from it is a symbol of fascism and an anomaly in a nation dedicated to the rule of law and a democratic polity. A nation either believes and uses the rule of law and allows freedom of movement or it doesn't. This pretence that Americans are free to move travel around the world and outside the borders of the US is made a mockery of by this so called no fly list.
"Shellacking of a lifetime"? In your dreams!
This author's comments are too little, too late! Marriage has been undergoing extreme change for decades. Today's divorce rate is the highest in history. More and more couples are deciding not to marry but to live common law. Having a whole new group of individuals who wish to marry should be supported instead of opposed. The beginning of the end of conventional marriage took place in states such as California many decades ago when the legislature brought in common property laws which made marriage superflous. The idea of bastards also went the way of the dodo bird (thank goodness), so there is no reason to marry today except perhaps for tax purposes or for religious reasons.
This author is besotted with the myth of American exceptionalism! She truly believes that her military are beyond reproof, a very shortsighted and foolish belief indeed. The criminals are where they deserve to be and the militaristic apologists such as this author ar part of an American dysfunction, not a part of the cure for it.
The author is correct of course. Just ask yourself if misogynistic policies, war mongering, and support for gun violence is going to win any young followers.
Do any of you remember that Al Queda was a small group of extremist Muslims that the US created to harry and discomfit the Soviets when they were occupying Afghanistan? After the Soviets left the small group was abandoned by the US and left to their own devices, although recent information has the CIA having a clandestine relationship with them up to and including 9/11. The point though is that it was a small uninfluential group of mountain based fighters in Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan. Unfortunately the US decided to paint it as the source of 9/11 without allowing anyone else to see the absolute proof of such activity of course. So with the US declaring it to be a terrorist group, its numbers swelled making it very influential!
