“Libertarian Socialist”, you “recall the media carefully parsing out the words of President Obama’s books”…. You mean actually reading what he said?
You fail to recognize that it is less what Mr. Obama has said, but what he hasn’t said. The media has covered for him for the past seven years, accepting everything he says as unchallenged fact.
Look at the lies he told in his announcement canceling the Keystone Pipeline: all unchallenged by the media.
For example, Mr. Obama claims massive environmental damage while the government’s own assessment pointed out that the pipeline would have minor environmental impact and be far less likely to have an operational failure- a spill- than the alternative means of transport.
Mr. Obama claims few jobs would be created by building the pipeline. Yet in its Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, the State Department said in March that more than 40,000 jobs would be spun off from the project during construction.
Mr. Obama claims the pipeline would not effect gas prices. Yet the Institute for Energy Research states that “a new influx of up to 700,000″ barrels per day “from Canada will dramatically increase U.S. supplies, and in turn drive gas prices down.”
Of course, as a Marxist, you ignore facts and blindly follow Big Brother. Enjoy your serfdom.

Well done, Dr. Carson!
In the end, this may work to your advantage. Some have said you are ‘too laid back’, ‘not tough enough’. You are showing you are not going to have your words twisted and misrepresented by these paid assassins

Ms. Fiorina’s suggestion that “we ought to be able to discuss in a fact based, civil fashion”, in spite of Ms. Goldberg’s response of “absolutely”, fell on ‘deaf ears’. The cast of The View are all Progressives: facts mean nothing to them.

Go back a hundred years and you’ll find that the Progressives actually considered how to minimize the differences between candidates of the major parties. Edward Bernays was influential in setting up the ‘two party system’, where the only real difference is the name of the party
Consider the cast of characters over the years. There was no policy difference between Republican Theodore Roosevelt and Democrat Franklin Roosevelt. Although Democrats have blamed Republican Herbert Hoover for the Great Depression while lauding his successor FDR, their policies were virtually the same: FDR just threw more of other people’s money around than Hoover.
The only real choices Americans have had in all those years were between Barry Goldwater and LBJ in 1964; Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter in 1980; Ronald reagan and Walter Mondale in 1984.
Mr. Bernays did well. Only in recent years has a substantial portion of the electorate come to realize that when Republicans give us Democrat policies, who needs Republicans?

Actually, he did bring up the endorsements of both Mr. Obama and Mr. Reid to Mr. Loudermilk….

I don’t know Mr. Babin. I don’t know whether he is a ‘good guy’ or not. I do know that he is probably overwhelmed with calls, faxes, EMails and letters as are all U. S. Representitives. I also know that most Representatives have only a small staff.
Before you ‘swear off’ Mr. Babin, reflect on what happened. You state you were “speaking to Representative Babin’s secretary”. When your conversation ended, the secretary simply pulled up the closest matching form letter to thank you.
Next time, insist on talking to Mr. Babin. If you cannot, don’t blame him for the form letter you receive.

One thing I believe you will admit about Mr. Beck: he never asks us to take anything he says at face value. He always insists we do our homework, that we confirm or refute what he says through our own research.

Your argument concerning the right of a state to secede from the union, like it or not, was invalidated by war. As for slavery, Mr. Lincoln supported a peaceful solution to ending slavery. But- before Mr. Lincoln was even innaugurated- southern- slave-holding- states, intent on continuing the “peculiar institution”, seceded. Read the documents: it WAS all about slavery. Claiming liberty while denying another’s liberty is the ultimate hypocrisy.

Let’s get something straight: the image on the license plate is not the Confederate flag. It is the logo of a fraternal organization. The state should ‘butt out’!
I seriously do not understand this new concept of 'hating' Police enough to hunt them down and kill them. I sincerely blame Obama and his minions for allowing this rhetoric and attitude to thrive and grow within the USA. I'm ashamed of Obama for not being 'Presidential'.
Who do the Leftists and Police haters expect to rescue them when they call 911?
Maybe we should create 2 classifications of Americans. Those who support Police, and are allowed to call 911 when they need help.. and those who resent ALL Police officers, and who can register to deny any 911 Police services.

If he didn’t get a gun he would have killed these people with a knife, baseball bat, garrote or some other weapon. Sorry, Mr. Mercer, but the gun didn’t kill anyone: your son did.
Had anyone on the campus- including the Security Guard- had a firearm, this might not have happened or perhaps there might have been fewer lives lost.
There was ‘gun control: the school’s ‘Gun Free Zone’- an open invitation for risk-free crime.
It wasn't a gun free zone. Check your facts, Oregon law specifically disallowed it..
But by all means go for the standard scapegoats. If that fails, start lamenting mental health and how we don't handle it as effectively as we should.
But don't let any facts get in your way. Don't let the fact that the US doesn't have a unique mental health problem, doesn't have a unique intersection of race/ethnicity or social deprivation. Just throw them up anyway, and say it has nothing to do with guns.. god forbid anyone touched those and actually made them harder to get, and less likely to be used in a crime like this.
There isn't an easy solution, the longterm way to stop mass shootings is to stop easy access to guns and ammunition, like other countries. The downside is that the genie is already out of the bottle, and there are so many guns out there, that the challenge becomes of making all the 'bad guys' hand their's in too, lest you have an even worse wave of violence.
But hey that is just rational thinking. In the short-term, I would happily go along with arming more people, putting guards in more places and doing whatever gun-nuts claim is going to fix the problem (at least enacting laws which are feasible to do so). Then if/when it fails, we have an agreement to switch to using a gradual strategy to take guns away from bad people, and make them harder to access, and harder to inflict mass casualties. Either way, something positive happens..
Mostly lib is….
a.) willfully ignorant\
c.) a liar
d.) all of the above

Also here item 19
Here’s the actual text if item nineteen in 721.3 Student Misconduct section, Student Code Umpqua Community College
"Possession or use, without written authorization, of FIREARMS..."
As of March 2015, Concealed carry was not permitted, except by written permission by college other weapons or destructive devices that are designed to or readily capable of causing physical injury, on College premises, at College-sponsored or supervised functions or at functions sponsored or participated in by the College.
In an Oregon Court of Appeals case (2011), three judges concluded that Oregon public colleges and universities no longer have authority to ban weapons on the physical grounds of a campus. Each school does however, have discretion as to whether to permit concealed handguns inside buildings, dormitories, event centers, and classrooms.
Where did the shooting occur?

Just because he didn’t respond “Yes. The bas**rds both have to go!’ as you might have liked doesn’t mean he has lost his courage. He was quite clear in this and other comments he’s made- so much so that Mr. Paul has been roundly criticizing him for his comments pointing out the failure of Mr. McConnell’s ‘leadership’.
 September 30, 2015 at 11:29pm
Actually, he was quite clear. As the story says,
“What I think is important is that we have Republican leadership in both houses that actually honors the commitments we made to the voters,” he continued, contending leadership failed to deliver most recently by passing a stopgap spending bill that averts a government shutdown, but funds President Barack Obama’s most controversial measures.

No, they need to be replaced by leaders who will not send our young men and women in harm’s way without committing to victory, and who will assure them that they will be supported and not be simply fed into ‘a meat grinder’ for nothing.

How does ignoring a child rapist help the Army’s mission of “winning the hearts and minds” of the Afghan people?
