    Tired,

    That’s how they hope it will go down, and they’re probably right for most of the world and the liberal/urban areas of the US. I don’t think the rest of us will go down that easily. In fact, we will win. And it will be easy to tell who the invaders are, they all have beards and refuse to wipe with the Koran.

    I’m not sure I believe that putting attractive labels on healthy stuff and moving it to the front of the line is going to make kids want to eat their veggies more. They’ll catch on that they should hold out until the end of the line where the good stuff is. Oh well, this should increase profits for my kids, who I send to school with lots of soda and treats to sell to the other kids. This is my way of teaching lots of different economic and political principles to my kids!

    Now we just need to figure out how to get the stupid libs/progs to stay there, instead of flooding the prosperous places we right wingers create when their utopias fail, we’d be set!

    I’d take his comment a step further: if you’re taking government money other than as an injured soldier, you’re not just a loser, you’re a thief. If it helps you sleep at night that someone else held the gun to other people’s heads while it took their money, and you didn’t do that part yourself, so be it, but that doesn’t change the evil of taking by force that which doesn’t belong to you. Just because the government does your dirty work doesn’t make you better. I probably won’t make friends with this comment, but I’m not even sure I’d exempt those on social security from this. I know they paid in, but they also allowed their representatives to pillage what they paid and use it for other goodies they wanted along the way, so they already spent what they paid in, and they are simply stealing from me.

    That was my exact thought!

    If an ISIS lemming showed up in a mall where I was spending time with my wife, he wouldn’t kill a number of Americans. He might get a couple using the element of surprise before I have him down.

    News flash for you all: It’s too late to stop the terrorist attack from this. I guarantee terrorists are already here in significant numbers and I’d also bet they have WMDs of some form or another, at least in pieces. The only remaining question is whose order are they waiting upon and what will they strike when they do?

    It rings a little hollow when your company and its founders are perfectly happy trouncing the Constitution right up until it hits you where you don’t like, and only then you’re concerned about the federal government’s violation of the Constitution? I suppose it’s good to have you understand and support one of the rights found therein, but it seems a little self-serving and hypocritical until you’re concerned with complete fidelity to the Constitution.

    BFOP,
    Don’t get me wrong, I’d prefer a competent Commander in Chief (someone like Douglas McArthur comes to mind), but let’s face it, we’re not going to have that. Playing the hand we actually have, I think I’d prefer he get out of the way and let the adults fight the war. What was it the Japanese feared about invading the U.S., an armed American behind every blade of grass?

    Thank you for being the exception to the rule. That said, I suspect even here in Utah we’re only a few years behind the rest of the country with this kind of insanity. Ask around with your coworkers what they think about having guns in schools or whether I should be able to own an AR-15. Even here in UT, you’ll find overwhelming stupidity from the teachers and administrators.

    It would be interesting if he surrendered to them and we had the power to be the resistance without federal interference. I’m not sure I dislike that scenario.

    FrankCastle1958-
    I’m stating what will happen with today’s case law and today’s judges, and I’m not wrong about it. That doesn’t mean that’s how it should be, but that is how it is. And despite my fundamentalist gun rights positions, I actually disagree with your second point. The Constitution tells the government what it may or may not do, so it may not deny you your right to self-defense. However, private entities (Dartmouth is private) may deny you access for just about any reason they like, including your possession of a weapon. It’s a stupid policy, but in a free country you’re allowed to be stupid. It is a violation of nobody’s Constitutional rights for the college to tell her she can’t have a gun. The appropriate response is to transfer to a college that actually has intelligent people at it, for pedagogical and safety reasons.

    You’ll lose. There is no duty to protect or provide security for people. Unfortunately, the law also will hold you accountable if your employee does something to someone else, which is why many companies ban guns in the workplace for liability reasons. This is also why I’m trying to get my state reps to place strict liability for violent crime against anyone who was not allowed to defend themselves while on their premises.

    “But we certainly do everything we possibly can to make all our students feel safe.” Important distinction in that sentence. They aren’t trying to make sure the students ARE safe, just that they feel that way. Rename to Dartmouth Department of Pseudo-Safety and False Sense of Security, a little longer, but more accurate.

    Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pidgeon: it knocks over all the pieces, poops on the board, and then struts around like it won. – Putin

    There won’t be prosecutions because the Justice Department makes sure election fraud goes unpunished if it benefits Obama’s agenda. Exhibit A: Black Panthers.

    History shows that lasting peace comes from military superiority of free people. The world was less volatile once the US was the sole superpower. Unfortunately, your boy has weakened us to the point that there is a power vacuum in the world and it’s rapidly destabilizing. The simple truth is that not everyone can be trusted with power. On that list is Russia, China, and every country in the middle east, with a possible exception of Israel.

    Good timing to resume these talks. Last time we spoke, the US still had a shred of credibility remaining. Since, Obama has made it all the more clear that we have no clue what we’re doing with foreign policy, and that there will be no consequences if Iran crosses any red lines. The message has been sent that we’ll do this deal, give you something nice in exchange, and ignore your flagrant violations of the deal so you can nuke Israel when you’re ready. The green light is more evident now than last time we spoke.

    Maybe this is their way of keeping their oaths to protect this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. See, if one of them just offed a politician, they’d be in deep for it. If they just let someone else do it, no repercussions for the agent and the country has been protected against one of its enemies. It’s a win-win!

    Does anyone else see the tremendous irony of WaPo making the “ends don’t justify means” argument when the entirety of liberalism is founded on the concept of achieving the desired ends no matter the means?
