SENDTHEMETEORS – So let me get this straight … you say “Thanks to people who believe as you do, has taken no step to enforce the laws, and prevent terrorists, felons, murderers or certified crazy people from buying guns.” So … we already have laws to keep the people that you mentioned from buying guns. So by NOT passing MORE laws that restrict these people from buying guns we have somehow allowed them to buy guns?
Uh … hello? They are CRIMINALS!!!! You said it yourself … ” … terrorists, felons, murderers or certified crazy people …”. They don’t care what laws you pass. Here’s an idea; Why don’t we just make murder illegal? That will fix every … oh wait.

Oh wait … maybe she’s referring to the Communist Manifesto?

Did I miss something? Which amendments are those?

“Right-wingers” are unhinged from reality? Hmm … let’s work through a scenario. Let’s say that it’s a sunny pleasant day at the Hippy-McHipster abode. You and your family are sitting on your front porch enjoying the pleasant afternoon (thanks to Al-gezeera Gore) snacking on granola crackers and tofu and washing it down with wheat germ smoothies when along comes a criminal! An evil person that wishes you and your family harm (even though you seem to deny that these people exist). So you;
A) Tell them that we can all just get along. Why not sit down and have some granola with us and we can talk about your feelings? Or,
B) Simply ignore them as evil people wishing someone harm can’t exit right? I mean that’s illegal after all, right? I am sure that they don’t want anything that I have (though my hemp sandles are AWESOME). Or,
C) Hope that someone calls the police and that they arrive in time. Or,
D) Have a means by which to protect yourself because people like this DO EXIST and laws do not deter them from wanting to do you and your family harm.

Tyranny; arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power. So you don’t think that it’s tyranny when the government forces you to buy something that you don’t want to buy or “invest” (code-speak for taking your money) in something that you may not believe in? If you want you referenced 40,000 people to have insurance than write a check or start a charity. Forcing someone to hand over a portion of their earnings under duress for something that they may not want or need is tyranny.
Lefties; you side will not always be in power. Just because it’s being pushed by “your side” doesn’t make it less tyrannical. So remember that the next time that you want to rally behind something like this; would you want the “right” to be able to have the same power?
Look, when it comes to guns you are addressing the wrong issue. Murder is illegal but IT STILL HAPPENS. Robbery is illegal but IT STILL HAPPENS. These people are CRIMINALS. By definition they don’t care about what laws you pass. The criminals are going to commit crimes regardless.
“… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. If you don’t like it then work to change it WITHIN the law of the land; amend the Constitution. So you don’t like the second amendment and we don’t like “ObamaCare”. Sounds like we’re even.
January 8, 2013 at 2:15pm
Look – everyone here is missing the simple solution to this. Even the left would agree! Let’s just make murder illegal. That would stop all of … oh wait.
October 31, 2012 at 4:03pm
I think that it’s just as important to find out how many attempted votes are being changed the other way. If this is a one way issue (Romney votes being changed to Obama votes) then you have to wonder if this isn’t intentional.
July 20, 2012 at 11:18am
I know! Let’s just make murder illegal and that will stop all of the killing! Wait … what? Murder is already illegal and it still keeps happening? So you mean that if we make guns illegal they will still be used in crimes? By that logic the fork didn’t make me fat, I did. And we all know it’s not our fault.
Wake up Left, THEY ARE CRIMINALS. Or, you could just drop the pretense now since apparently we’re all socialists, and just admit that this is just another shameless attempt to use a tragedy to strip away law abiding citizen’s right to defend themselves.

Bottom line; NY gets what they deserve. They voted this Progressive turd into office. So how’s that working out for you NY? Two million people have left NY in the last three years (TX and FL thank you).
But the question is.....will they accept how TX and FL is run or will they try and turn it into another liberal heaven......it's one thing if they move and change their views, but to simply move but set up the same stuff that they are running from is pointless.
But then again that may be the plan, get liberals to move to conservative areas and slowly take them over......think about it.
We welcome them? Not likely. Welcome to Texas, now GO HOME!
The only question I have is: Do they still give free refills?
New yorkers don't care how many people leave, their reasoning is that it's too crowded anyway. My sister lives there and she is disgusted with the people of new york. She told me that if I come there, leave my handgun AND my stun gun at home, either one can send me to jail. A stun gun??? You're not allowed to carry a stun gun in new york?? These people need to get a grip.
the sad part is they come here and make the same stupid mistakes that made NY what it is.
I hope the burn the stinking city to the ground in protest and try to put it out with pi@@...Less than 16 ounces...
You know there is a free market solution to the obesity crisis...If people have to pay for their own healthcare, they take better care of themselves. Also, allow health insurance companies to charge fat people higher premiums (like they do smokers for life insurance). People would either pick up the tab for their lifestyle or lose some weight and the rest of us could enjoy a large soda now and then.
ha ha..............on people leaving new york............
the irony in all these departures...............THEY RE TAKING THEIR $$$ WITH THEM...........
bloomberg & nyc are screwed !!!!!
Well now, how do yuou feel NYC??? Doomberg thinks you are so stupid you need a baby-sitter!
We encourage everyone to come to Florida and visit us enjoy our unique and beautiful state. We can use your vacation dollars for our economy. Then get the heII out. and leave us alone.
Nudge, nudge... I didn't know that Michael Bloomberg was related to Cass Sunstein?
Isn't this how tyrants did this in the past right before they put somebody's neck in the guillotine?
"We are just forcing you to understand"....
* Chop *
They don't learn from their mistakes. They have turned my hometown of Austin into a sorry liberal city. Wanting everything and choking us with taxes to get it. Now they want to spend money on trolly cars at a cost of about a billion dollars a mile to build. You can't smoke anywhere anymore. They are like a plague of locusts.
Mayor Badberg Is Shoving His Middle Finger In Our EYES
Sugar is not fattening. Soda does not have any fat and is in fact a no fat food.
Badberg is a dictator who must be removed.
I don't know how old the Mayor is, but I am 73 yrs. old and when I was a kid the bottles were 12 oz. not 6 oz like he states. Look up any old Pepsi advertsement, even the "Jingle" was pepsi cola hits the spot, 12 big ounces thats a lot, they made it light and dry---and etc. He is a small man, grew up small, so his soda bottles were small!!!
Bloomberg is an A**hole tyrant. If martial law were to ever be declared in NYC for some reason, Bloomberg is the type of guy who would have no crisis of conscience when it comes time to order the NYC shock troops to start killing people. The NYC shock troops are the type of sociopathic a**holes who would have no problem carrying out such orders.
Bloomberg is so arrogant he thinks he has the authority to dispatch his personal goon squads throughout the eastern seaboard to carry out half-ass "gun store stings". He was promptly put in his place. What the hell possesses people to vote for a s***head like Bloomberg?
Isn't this the same guy who says the government should force illegals to move into the run down areas of big cities? O hope that big Apple voters wise up and "force" this clown out of office!
The issue it why Republicans voted for him n the first place
So people have to ask themselves
Conservatism for What?
“Without conservative philosophy practical politics mean nothing.”"The history of American conservatism is a history of loosing…”
The same applies to democrats that promise one thing and do another.
It was never one side vs the other, but the politicians vs people.
Way to go NYC, another "historic first", the "Big Gulp Speakeasy"!
Please don't come to Texas and vote for Democrats.
I absolutely agree. New York gets what they deserve except for the fact it will affect us all. This man is creepy and needs to become a pariah. Think about it. He literally wants to force people to drink the amount he deems important. Get rid of this man New York. How did he make his fortune? He is truly a schmuck!!
This is about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And realize, and I want to be clear on this point, this JZS saying it. Maybe there is a health awareness angle that might amount to somthing, but I doubt it (it's the 50 grams of fat in the burgers that'll kill you eventually - not the sugar in the coke). He's playing politcs. Maybe he's running for President 2016.
And for what it's worth, I eat lots of fast food hamburgers.
That's government. A walking contradiction. You're free....but were forcing you to do something. Murder is bad and illegal, but abortion is fine; stealing is wrong! But were gonna put a gun to your head and call it taxation; Don't hurt others, but if you don't show up for jury duty or drive without a seat belt we will violently throw you in a cage.
Keep pursuing freedom, one day we will have it back.
When will the Blaze run a story on Bilderberg 2012? Which is going on right now in Chantilly VA.
Neocons and liberals alike can not deny it anymore. The real news from the BLAZE needs to cover this. But I bet they wont. Cause Beck is a sell out. Him and his private jet and charging thousands of dollars to meet him.
As I have said before the democrats always have an agenda they will now attack any food product they deem unhealthy,all this will be followed by stiff taxes on all these items..the taxes is the real goal...That's how they did it to tobacco products...wake up America they intend to tax us to death
How many times do we have to see the truth.
The loony left will never stop telling you what you can do.
Fight back. Say "go to hell."
When will enough be enough?
Next: Buffets, coffee, butter, red meat, big cars, big homes, boats.
Except theirs, of course.
'forcing us to understand' huh? let me make you understand,,,,you are a blithering idiot, a bully for wanting to make people be what YOU think they should, a commie, and a traitor to the constitution and bill of rights. one day someone will 'set you straight.' when I hear of that happening,,,,I will laugh my #ss off, b*tch!
and it's not about the drink size, dummy!!
Come on JZS.
We really want to hear how this is a made up story to get under the skin of conservatives. That the government is not interested in regulating the things we eat. You know an absurd joke to trick the uninformed, that conservatives totally bought.
Tell us all the same stuff that you said about the proposed salt ban, the one you never heard about. Yea, tell us some more about that.
Is Mayor Bloomberg not a Republican?? Looks like I showed up just in the nick of time.
I agree with you.
That is a true statement.
TEAMARCHESON- I had to reply to you because in all honestly, what you are saying is totally wrong. Sugar absolutely makes you fat, extremely so. The no fat craze of the 90's is actually when our country began to get extremely obese. To remove fat from food products the food companies added sugar, which is the ultimate culprit in obesity. While I was in medical school it was just being fully discovered that high cholesterol/triglycerides where raised just as much if not more from high sugar intake, than from fat intake. As a physician, if I had a patient who was obese, with high cholesterol, I would much rather them eat a large steak with mashed potatoes, than a few cans of coke and some twizzlers (both "no fat" foods). Do not be afraid of fat, be afraid of sugar. I have seen people lose 20 pounds with only cutting out soda, and making no other changes. I do not think the govt should regulate anything someone eats or drinks, I am against this law in principle. But, as a health care worker, I would love to see people especially kids stop drinking soda, it has no nutrients, it dehydrates, it causes major spikes in blood sugar which is leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Soda was meant to be a treat, not an everyday/all day type of thing.
Think Think Think
Now, who would be FOR such a ban... and why?
The really sad part, this will have almost no effect on the obese, but restrict the rights of everyone. Do the obese order these super large regular Cokes? No they order Diet Coke. Most regular Coke drinkers are not obese.
And yes, I am one that 'has' to drink Diet Coke.
So not only is Bloombutter trying to impose a Nanny State, he is doing it bassackwards.
I'm agreeing with you a lot lately, which is giving me some concern.
Here is Jon Stewart's input on the subject. Even if you are not a fan, it is worth watching.
Who wears the pants in that town!!

Is Mayor Bloomberg not a Republican?? Looks like I showed up just in the nick of time.
actually he claims to be an independent now. He is no where near being a conservative. Not all Rinos are conservatives.
pop, so true
TIME_2_END_THE_GOP_IN_12 just in case you need me to back that uphttp://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/02/new-york-city-mayor-bloomberg-pledges-to-match-donations-to-planned-parenthood/
I don't know that the man even knows what he is.
Yathink is a jerk. You don't own the state. Be a little politer. My father used to say "Keep Florida green. Bring money."
DEERFAWN, uh, NO Rinos are conservative, that is why they are called "RINOs".
April 25, 2012 at 5:52am
Will someone please explain to me how allowing people to keep more of their own money adds to the deficit? The left continues this meme (that no one seems willing to call them on) that all of the money is theirs and that they are graciously allowing us to keep some of it. Wake up! It’s NOT THEIR MONEY!!! “Increasing Revenue” = ******* code-speak for “Raising Taxes”!
October 10, 2011 at 8:08pm
Great job California! Let’s keep those guns out of the hands of those pesky law-abiding citizens! I am SURE that the criminals will follow suit and they won’t dare get a hold of a gun now!!! Right!!!
OMFG! This State just can’t get out of it’s own way! It just can’t a$$-slode quick enough!
October 10, 2011 at 7:57pm
“Main Street California is not the Old West, and you don’t need a gun to buy a cheeseburger,” … Wait … you can still buy a cheeseburger in California!?
you might need that gun to get them to put cheese on that burger, and you might ahve to shoot them in the leg to get mayo there with the cheese...LMAO

” … Cain fails to understand the astronomical income inequality in the U.S. …” OMFG! Who are these A$$-Clowns at ThinkProgress?
So wait … let me get this straight … this turd at ThinkProgress feels that the government is responsible for dealing with a perceived “astronomical income inequality in the U.S.”. The U.S. Government? Herman Cain doesn’t get it?
Sounds to me like Mr. Cain hit it dead on. These Progressives (I prefer the term Communist) are the ones that “just don’t get it”. You people have to wake up and get behind someone like Herman Cain.
October 5, 2011 at 4:05pm
Has a weird and creepy “October 1917″ and “Bolshevik” kind of vibe to it doesn’t it? I mean with all of those “useful idiots” and all. Wake up people!
October 5, 2011 at 3:40pm
Hmm … seems to me that we’ve heard this kind of thing before … just can’t place it … maybe sometime in the 1920′s and 1930′s? And for some reason I want to say that it was in Europe … Germany maybe?
Guess everyone else forgot about it too.
September 23, 2011 at 3:34pm
Wait … why does everyone seemed surprised by this?
September 23, 2011 at 9:53am
Look people, this turd isn’t even relevant. He gets to spew his hypocritical rhetoric on leftist media outlets (so what, like 12 people saw him on the Gore/Olberdork network?) and most of what he says is heard by the small numbers of “sheeple” that watch that crap anyway. He’s “preaching to the choir” so to speak.
I actually think that this progressive POS is good for the conservative right. Yup! This left-tard is a prime example of just how hypocritical and out-of-touch the left has become.
Look, maybe after the 2012 election he will become so despondent that he will take his act to Cuba and we can stop giving this guy anymore attention.
All right! So if Moore is good for conservatives, I'm all in favor of saturating the media with him. Since he's good for conservatives, perhaps Fox could offer him a show?
September 22, 2011 at 9:55pm
Now Bill don’t be too hard on this “teacher”. You have to see it from his perspective. As a Communist he would see someone from the right as being a Nazi given that Nazi’s are to the right of Communists. Remember, according to Newsweek “we’re all socialists now”. So he was simply operating under what he was being told by the media. And they would NEVER present information with a slant … Would they?
September 22, 2011 at 12:39pm
Why ITH does the left continually attempt to label those on the right as “NAZI’s”? Do they not realize that the name stands for “National Socialist German Workers’ Party”? Ah hello … “Socialist”? That’s left NOT right.
