I am tired of conservatives spouting ideological garbage. We need to open ears/ eyes and change minds. We need to win arguments.
The best way to win this argument is to keep pounding on the idea that guns save lives. Allowing everyone to easily defend themselves SAVES LIVES. Frankly, it appears that for many women on the left, they are only concerned with women. So the obvious way to win the debate is to reinforce the *historically proven fact* that women who are trained and who carry are consistently safer against strangers and abusers alike. It’s a fact that men who are intent on killing a women can do so with a variety of means (Ann Coulter’s article on the same topic lists several recent cases). But women need guns to be able to defend themselves against bigger, heavier, stronger, angrier opponents.
Stop with ideological arguments; start with historically proven facts!!!

Actually the guy made perfect sense.
Why are we focusing on allowing women to have more than 6 months to decide if she’s been raped and whether she wants to keep the baby? We should be focusing on telling women who have been raped to go right *immediately* to the hospital and then to the police station. And FYI, hospitals give rape victims the equivalent of a Plan B type pill to prevent pregnancy. Hence, a 20 week ban on abortions makes all the sense in the world as does striking an amendment to exclude rape/ incest.
These idiotic blog posts are really jumping the shark. Do your research Meredith
If you want to sell ammo in the US, you must first give the US gov’t first chance to purchase. Otherwise you lose your license.

Regulations say you have to sell first to the US gov’t- it’s part of being “allowed” to manufacture guns/ ammo in the US. Gov’t gets first dibs on buying it.

Know a good Canadian fellow with a job and small business on the side that waited 17 YEARS to get a green card and become a citizen. Why not get more of those folks? Seriously immigration offices are totally messed up.

I think Ann was using hyperbole to prove a point. To date, the wife claims ignorance of her husband’s intentions and actions, and yet, she is fully converted Muslim, knew her husband left the country, and the FBI questioned him. That doesn’t add up. She is just as guilty as he is, and should be treated as a co-conspirator. The attire comment was Ann exaggerating for effect- she’s well known for it.

The solution is to end government regulation in the majority of industries. For example, there is a federal regulation regulating the water toxicity levels in one county in Kentucky. Why? Why isn’t there one level for all water in the US? Shouldn’t the water Kentucky drives be just as safe as the water in Oregon?
Next, regulation hurts small businesses and helps large ones. For example, the Chris-Dodd Act required a certain percentage of capital to be maintained on hand for all banks. Large banks simply sold off enough bad loans to get their capital, which drives down prices for everyone. The majority of small banks in rural places (like South Georgia) went under, because although they had maintained good loan practices, the economy was so depressed, that loans could not be sold. Land values in south Georgia has fairly low, with minimal chance of return on investment.
On minimum wage laws, the studies are numerous and fairly conclusive. 90% of minimum wage workers are not in poverty so increasing the minimum wage does not end poverty. 50% of those in poverty don’t even work.
So basically in the name of “fairness,” the government has created a very small, very wealthy concentration of power and money. End those regulations and you will see business explode. End the unnecessary tax burden by reducing unemployment insurance, privatize and deregulate health insurance, dump minimum wages; the list goes on, but any of these will help the economy.

No kidding! Take a look around- demand is sky high and supply isn’t keeping up. You’d make a fortune, if you could navigate the regulations to do it. Note, it would probably take a fortune to begin with. It takes money to make money.

Well read the studies on how children of single mothers, or lesbians turn out.
Much more likely to be abused, neglected, in poverty. More likely to drop out of high school, do drugs/drink, commit suicide, get pregnant as a teen. Children of lesbians are much more likely to be sexually abused by a PARENT or TRUSTED Friend of the parent. The list goes on. It’s time someone said stop.

To note: most international adoptions laws ban same-sex couples and single mothers from applying. Russia was/is one of the only ones who would allow it.
April 1, 2013 at 7:41pm
Not typical in an international adoption. All of Russian-US adoptions are “waiting kids” whose parents have abandoned them to the state. They are wards of the state.
Only Taiwan has a program allowing mothers to choose internationally adopting parents.

Cynthia Tucker is a moron and all of Atlanta knows it. Don’t report on her idiotic rantings.

Yes! I don’t know why we aren’t teaching our girls to GO TO THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY!
How many stories do we hear about “rape” but the girl never did anything to get the sob off the streets. Unfortunately, too many women have falsely cried rape (Twanda Bradley, Duke Lacrosse team, etc…). You *must* go to the police first and the hospital second.
February 27, 2013 at 11:04am
The Duke LaCrosse Team did NOT commit any rapes- they were found NOT GUILTY and the accuser confessed to making up the story. Do your research.

5. There are battered women on that list who bought guns for protection and now have their name and new addresses published.

I own a business. I would like a candidate (with or without a degree) that can understand and construct a logical solution in any programming language we use (everything that’s a real programming language). Second qualification is passion. Third is to ask for a reasonable salary.

I am 29. My husband and I began our business when I was 26. We have two small daughters.
We work our asses off and provide for 6 employees.
Just so you know, not all my generation is lost. :-)
