EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE has the right to be armed so they can defend themselves. It's called the 2nd amendment. Every single gun control law in this nation - federal, state or local - is unconstitutional. Liek it or not.
Interesting that a learned UGA professor doesn't understand the meaning of the term "geopolitical." That term does not encompass terrorist attacks or military action. Romney made it clear he was referring to the way Putinm (Medvedev was only a seat warmer) was - and is - cockblocking us on the world political stage. One of the great failures of the liberal mind is the inability to grasp subtlety, nuance and distinction. And so yet again we get libs mocking what they fail to understand, turning themselves into a mockery in the process. But unfortunately the VAST majority of Americans failed to understand the nuances of Romney's statements as well. And that's a microcosmic glimpse into why we're all in this sinking boat.
They won't go door to door. They'll just make arrests of convenience. Either way, it will go to court in the end. It is unavoidable. But maybe Connecticut residentws will figure out the elections ahve consequences, and get someone in there to reverse course on this mockery.

I agree Ted. We should not be involved beyond trhe typical covert subversive maneuvering. Let the spies work it, keep the visible stuff in the scabbard. I'm tired of playing savior for a multitude of ingrate countries. And I think it's a bit late for the EU to be trying to curb Putin. If they wanted to do thaqt they should have taken that stance years ago, and maybe this wouldn't be happening. The EU is every bit as weak-willed as Obama. And if Obama has a lot of corporate donators screaming in his ear about their interests, I say this to them: You were fool enough to invest in Ukraine, now you take what your chosen market has given you. Be smarter next time.

I have to agree. This is a very difficult situation for America. We are not at war with Russia and cannot afford to even risk conflict. Putin knows this. Ther real issue is this: the same is true for Russia - they cannot risk conflict with us. BUT, knowing who's in the White House allows Putin to push the envelope to an extent that Obama would never have the balls to consider. Both countries are dramatically constrained, but the Obama presidency creates a healthy amount of wiggle room for Putin while his ballsy hard line gives us NONE.

"The tyrant in Moscow." Hmmmm, ballsy. Call it like it is Marco.
The REAL problem here is social security, because Social Security is NOT a welfare program!! I see the line item every time I get a paycheck, and it indicates I am PAYING INTO Social Security. This is why people refuse to allow the government to cut it. Because it's OUR money! All the welfare programs - including Obamacare - can get whacked to the ground for all I care. But Congress BETTER approach SS reform in a very delicate way. Because SS has become the single largest robbery scheme every perpetrated. This is EXACTLY what happens when you trust big, centralized government with your money. It's a DISASTER!
People continue to fail to understand the funding structure that underlies this abortion of a bill. To remove the parts of it that are most offensive would be to remove the market-based subsidizations that help to pay for expanded plans for the poor. If everyone is not required to purchase full-on, Obamacare-approved insurance then the entire cost/profit structure insurance companies are currently using would collapse. Premiums would rise even more. The ONLY solution to this God-forsaken disaster is FULL repeal of the law.
Mike I agree with you in principle. But like anything else, the ability to have someone committed is a power that is just begging to be misused and abused. At what point will the government expand that power to eliminate anyone who stands against their agenda? Mental health is an incredibly complex, tricky thing. To enact broad-brush one-size-fits-all lawsin this area would most likely wind up stripping us of our liberties, just like everything else the government passes.
