    However, Loesch pointed out, Australia banned and even confiscated some guns after the Port Arthur shooting massacre in 1996 left 35 people dead, according to the Federalist. And in the United Kingdom, Loesch said there are still beheadings – and shootings – that take in the European country, despite its strict gun laws. Perhaps Jon can explain how referencing two incidence has anything to do with statistics. It is all too obvious that dana is uneducated so one understands why she doesn’t know the difference. Now here are some real figures and statistics. Let’s for example consider percent of gun ownership and gun related homicide rates by a few countries. Let’s for giggles look at the two dana references to show how ignorant she really is.
    Australia guns per 100 population is 15 and gun homicides per 100,000 is 1.76. Great Britans’s guns per 100 population is 6.2 and gun homicides per 100,000 is .07. Egypt’s guns per 100 population is 3.5 and gun homicides per 100,000 is .57. And for the US the guns per 100 is 88.8 and the gun homicides per 100,000 are 2.97. You see dana statistics are more significant when they are based on large numbers like the entire population and all gun homicides. As wise people often say dana…. its ok to be stupid, just don’t open your mouth and continually prove it.

    AvengerK….. another great example of shooting one’s mouth off with no even remote relationship with the facts or reality. He was an Irish Catholic who was evidently enamored with the IRA and thus it was a Catholic looking to kill Protestants. And last time I checked both of those religions are regarded as Christian. So once again your point is you have no point. Hey you seem like a tough guy, how’s about you walk into a IRA bar in Dublin and ask the “militant atheist trolls” in the IRA why they kill christians.

    Ah so because it was a catholic looking to kill Protetants that’s the best you can come up with. I just hope they track down where he got the weapons from and they put that/those individuals in prison for life. He is underage in Oregon for owning a hand gun so someone gave him or sold him some illegally.

    Actually the point Cavallo makes is the correct one and is based on a knowledge of what Insurance is supposed to be. The is the largest number of people in the risk pool as possible to dilute the risk of any individually sick members. And of course health insurance companies before the Affordable Care Act merely rejected chronically ill patients at any premium amount. For middle or lower class families the result was they paid their way until they ran out of money and then signed up for Medicaid, which of course is funded by everyone. The case for a national health insurance system like that in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland or for that matter an expansion of Medicare to cover all citizens is obvious and overwhelming. The problem with the ACA is that we once again attempt to maintain a for profit approach for a social good like healthcare which wastes too much money on non-care related expenses and profits. And by the way in the 10 years before the Affordable Care Act health insurance premiums went up an average of 10 percent a year and that’s when they were not forced to exclude pre-existing conditions and there were no coverage limits. And no they which includes several multiple Republican Presidents who advocated for a national health insurance, want everyone on Medicare. Which is you check is the most effective and efficient health insurance in the world. Covering a group that for profit companies won’t cover.

    @saranda why would you question such an absurd figure. If ISIS and Al Qaeda had anywhere near 350 million members they would already control all of the middle east and be preparing military advances on Europe. I would however extend the ban on muslim immigration to None until all terrorist activities end. It is time for wealthy and educated muslims to clean up their own countries and not find safe haven here or in Europe. But unfortunately as is all to often the case people discriminate less against individuals who can write big checks or are in bed with large oil companies. Including governments and the politicians.

    So where are all the supporters of small businesses and their “Right” to operate their business as they see fit. Or does that only apply when the business wants to discriminate against a group of customers you don’t like. Just want to be sure. I’m thinking if it was Bubba’s Place and Bubba asked the individual to leave because he or she was with their same sex spouse, newly married in Kentucky, you support them.

    “I appreciate that people have a lot of different views on the issue of abortion,” Richards said. “We take the position that we trust women to make decisions about their pregnancies.”

    Gowdy responded, “I appreciate the way you like to frame the issue, that you are the reasonable one and those of us who have a contrary position are not reasonable.”

    Gowdy is either mentally challenged, psychotic in terms of thinking intelligent people don’ see right through him or a purposeful liar. I’d say he is a bit of all three. What he isn’t is a man of integrity, ethics or interested in being accurate.

    “First of all that ten commandment monument doesn’t establish a religion so it is fine and courts have said so in other states.” Ned technically the ten commandments is not a christian based law but a Jewish based one. Second, the council based their decision on the state constitution which prohibits “heralding” one religion over another. So the key terms here are religion and heralding. The term God and God’s Law doesn’t enter into the decision at all. Belief what you will, just don’t use government in any form to herald it or promote it. And by the way the founding fathers would applaud this decision.

  • [15] September 30, 2015 at 11:05am

    What happened to all the supporters of state’s rights…. and certainly the state should have the right to act in concert with its own constitution. “on a provision in the Oklahoma state constitution that precludes one religion being heralded over another.” You want to identify a villain, so pick and chose when states should act based on their constitution and when they should not. Clearly the decision is a was an easy one given how their constitution reads.

    Perhaps sharona could enlighten us on exactly how much the US subsidized the Iron Dome and who’s military technology is being deployed. That might change how the ownership of the Dome is communicated a bit. As Trump points out, the US is a patsy who gives money and aid to countries who don’t need it. How’s about we rebuild our infrastructure, strengthen our schools and worry about our own economy.

    “ongoing debate over undercover videos that purport to show Planned Parenthood selling fetal body parts.” purport – to present, especially deliberately, the appearance of being; profess or claim, often falsely. Wow a rare example of integrity from billy indicating exactly the real status of the videos. Not sure what the outrage would be anyway as the founding fathers were clear on the point and reflected it in every document…. there is NO and there shall be NO national religion in America. And yes both of the examples you provide were defended by Southern and Nazi christians as being consistent with their faith.

    Also true, but if the claims on the label are false the company should pay and pay big to discourage other companies from lying and perhaps increase the value of the truth. And perhaps a few of the executives involved should spend some time in jail.

    “What I don’t want to become numb to is wasting those taxpayer dollars,” Chaffetz said. “This is an organization that doesn’t need federal subsidy.” Are you all really that stupid that you can be swayed by lies on top of lies. At no point does the federal government subsidize Planned Parenthood. They pay them under the Medicaid program fees for service, just like any other Medicaid provider. As this story points out, all this other nonsense is just noise because the everyone on this committee and everyone writing about the issue, knows the accusations made in the Planned Parenthood videos are fraudulent. This is about taking away the constitutional right of a woman to make her own reproductive choices. That’s it, so stop acting like a cowardly, scared child who looks for countless excuses for their motive, become adults and admit it.

    And of course this is the most telling info from the poll. Vice President Joe Biden, who is still mulling a 2016 run, would defeat each of the Republican candidates if the election were held today, according to the poll. So its not the Failorina or Carson are necessary ideal candidates, they are just slightly more liked than Hillary at this point. And given the all out hit job being done on Hillary that is rather pitiful for both of them. But I am taking a rather long look at both Carson and Trump. If the ticket was Trump/Carson, I would vote for it. Would not vote for any ticket that Failorina was on. She cost me a bunch of money on HP stock and would have done irreparable damage to HP if she would have been allowed to finalize the proposed Price Waterhouse deal in which she was prepared to pay $10 billion more than the $3 billion IBM picked it up for. She is a joke in and out of board rooms.

    Oliver you do understand what Margin of Error means in polls like this, right? Cause a one percent advantage in a poll at this stage means nothing. And when the world finds out, like Californian’s did what a failure and revisionist liar Carly Failorina is, she will loose by 20% with or without the margin of error. Only republicans would herald and vote for an individual who is on virtually ever “Worse CEO List” merely because she made a symbolic impassioned, false statement about the Planned Parenthood videos.

  • [10] September 29, 2015 at 10:19am

    Carly Failorina is nothing more than a revisionist Liar. Go back to 2008 and look at her statements. And she should have been personally prosecuted as a crook with the booking of fraudulent deals at Lucent and illegal sales to Iran. But you’ll look past the Facts because she lied about the Planned Parenthood videos and you like that. Low information voters like simple minds will be taken by people like Carly Fiorina everyday.


    In a series of interviews from 2008 (when she campaigned for John McCain) to 2010 (when she unsuccessfully ran for the Senate against Barbara Boxer), Fiorina parroted left wing talking points on carbon credits, wind and solar energy sources, and the damage humans are causing to the planet via global warming. As recently as this year, she asserted that climate change is man-made. During her Senate campaign, she also refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which would have suspended the economy-destroying AB32 global warming law.

    “It is clear they acted fraudulently and unethically — and perhaps illegally,” Ah yes when someone points out the FACTS and the TRUTH you walk away from your so called evidence and attack the person. The FACTs are Sir that it has now been identified that the “Long” version of the videos were also edited…. so much for truth and honesty from the christian community. And it is also a FACT that 5 state investigations undertaken in republican hostile states that would no doubt manufacture evidence if they had to found NO, NONE, ZERO evidence to support criminal, medical ethics or health regulation violations. At the end of the day the symbolic “outraged” from the conservative christian community does not offset the fraudulent behavior of these individuals who did in fact violate ethical standards and criminal codes. They are akin to prosecutors who ignore civil rights of the accused, manufacture and/or withhold evidence….. and as that far worse than anyone they accuse.

    Of course they ignore any increase in tax receipts based on increased disposable income within the middle class. But what I like about Trump is that he is a business man and will make the tough choices to insure it is revenue neutral. Like increasing the top rate back up to 35% if that is what is necessary and cut wasteful defense spending and corporate welfare for companies like Exxon and large corporate farms.
