The CDC "data" was largely discredited years ago ( the infamous "Kellermen Report"). Turns out the then head of the CDC had a buddy who was a dentist, part of the anti-gun crowd, who needed some money. The CDC head got him a grant to write up the anti-gun study, even though such crime stat studies are not within the perview of the CDC . When a new Congress was sworn in one of the first things they did was oversight of over spending. The CDC head and his buddy were both brought in to show the data. Neither of them was able to produce the data or even able to explain how it was collected in the first place. Outcome? The CDC lost funding equal to the amount that was wasted on this study. The head of the CDC has since been replaced.

Mr Morgan, does the phrase "good riddance to bad rubbish" ring any bells?
A "Modest Proposal", Mr Adams? *Please tell me I don't have to footnote this!*
Well, at least he won't be flying off to a reelection fundraiser tomorrow morning like he did for the Bengaize incident.
toucan, if this is so, why are Police and the military not still using revolvers? But that is beside the point. Our right, not our privilege, our right to keep and bear arms is not for us to go hunting, it is to protect ourselves and our nation. To address your rant, in places such as China and the UK, they have the sort f gun control you are calling for, yet they still have (in China, just this week) attacks on their children at schools. In the Middle East, they are using explosives to commit these mass murders of the innocent. Your argument that it is the weapon's fault (yes, you are blaming an inanimate object for a crime) or that the removal of them from the equation would have altered the outcome is therefore invalid.

Want the spousal benefits? Get a civil union. Want to be married? Find a priest that will perform it. Want both? Do both like they do in England.

What we have here is a failure to communicate. We have two separate things here, one a sacrament or rite of in a religion that is the union of two souls in the eyes of the Divine, the other, an inter-state enforceable contract that the State must define. Most who oppose "gay marriage" do so not because of any intrinsic hatred of a homosexual, but rather more that the government is forcing them to accept the government's definition of what their religious sacraments should be. We should just call it two separate names, as they are two separate things, keep the separation of church and state, render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto God, that which is God's.
Doug, me lad, as we used to say, from your lips to God's ear. Here's a hope and a prayer that you're right.
His green energy has been a bust because he basically does not understand how it truly works (mainly as supplemental -so far- not stand alone, horizontal vs. vertical in wind power, and the like). Taxing the rich, we can see will now not work (see France, where the money is leaving), and as to horses and bayonets, yes, we still use them. There are other places than just the Middle East where we are deployed and security does still mount up. Bayonets are still just as deadly as they were 300 years ago for CQC. So, all in all, your arguments are held to be invalid.

Interrogation 101, constant blinking is a sign (barring a medical condition) that the subject being questioned is either lying and /or attempting to hold back information.
And this guy is who exactly? Seriously folks, who is he? I had to Wikki him to find out. It says he ran a right wing talk show out of Fargo ND til he got spanked for making inappropriate remarks on air about Laura Ingram. After that, MSNBC offered him a gig if he changed sides.Since then he's engaged in, shall we say, "creative editing" with sound bites and clips of those with opposing views as well as some controversy involving unreported fees for speaking engagements, etc that are sometimes considered conflicts of interests as he is billed as a news show. Here's a link to their full bio on him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Schultz
