You forgot that the population of concealed carry permit holders is 2.5 million.
Try the math again

Of course you are probably right.
The information isn’t presented in the usual form.
I don’t care how many people are packing, and the “law” that says you need a permit to carry a gun doesn’t stop anyone.
It’s better to be truthful when you present information.
When someone is caught being deceptive it diminishes their argument.
If this guy believes he’s right then he shouldn’t act like a clown.

crime rates are usually expressed in occurrences per 100,000
This works out to 6.72
The national homicide rate is approximately 4.7

The conservative litany is disproved everyday by theblaze.
Courage would be to admit when your common core of beliefs are proven wrong. and change.

How does your enumeration work exactly?
Does your pay get docked if you miss a story?
Do you get a bonus if you comment within a certain time period?
Everyone always whines about their pay.

The Associated Press story is mistaken .
There was no admission that Tea Party groups were improperly targeted.
What the government found was that the criteria used to evaluate whether groups that were organized for political purposes should receive nonprofit status were not working.
The criteria did not work because it found two organizations in the group that was audited approved for non profit status when they should not have been approved.
That’s what the government audit concluded.
it’s very shortsighted that only right wing political groups would use words like Freedom or Liberty or Patriotism in their names. Left wing groups use those same words too.
Mary...your political position verifies the terrible rife the Obama admin has created. Your accepting this answer, shows incompetence in facts of the biased process. Your sitting back and accepting tyranny by your government, is the story that should scare the hell out of you.

I made no claim that the Mormon Church ordered it.
It was Mormons that did it.
It’s debatable who knew what when, but the massacre happened.
There are plenty of balanced accounts written by Mormons. The claims are not all anti-Mormon.
Group cohesion is increased when members are made to feel victimized. That’s why you react without thinking.

The Mountain Meadows Massacre, or course.
Some people believe economic actions that harm others is a form of violence as well.

Mussolini was a fascist.
Mussolini said Fascism is corporatism.
Like ex US citizen Glenn Beck preaches.
Give tax cuts to business
Keep wages low
It is a right wing philosophy

The statement was that antisemitism is left wing.
Using the model that no government is right wing and total government is left wing will not explain why this is so.
If you group all the forms governments on the left side of a diagram your model does not explain their differences.
In fact the expected outcome of your model is that antisemitism is right wing because people that are basically on their own with little or no government are more likely to hate their neighbors. They are the enemy in competition for resources.
As government forms and people work together, there is more dependence on one another and less hatred.
Antisemitism is a right wing philosophy.
If it was left wing then why are all forms of government not antisemitic?
Use a standard model that is just as old as other government models and you will make sense when you talk. A model that explains how different forms of government differ.
Don’t argue that there’s only one way to look at a problem. That is dictatorial. That is right wing.

Try to post again
The Greeks were right
There is no government and then there is government.
When governments do exist they can be differentiated on a scale.
There is religion and no religion.
Of the religions that do exist, they can be related to each other on a scale.
There is employment and unemployment
Where jobs do exist they can be compared to one another using a scale.
The same can be done with just about any human endeavor.
It’s not just either/or.

Your analogy doesn’t hold.
I brought up John Birch because it is illustrative of Right Wing ideology to people who deny it exists.
The statement was only left wing ideologies are antisemetic.
That is not true.
I referenced other right wing groups that are antisemetic too.
You are reacting and not following the discussion.
February 27, 2014 at 11:05pm
Ex US citizen Glenn Beck did not just say he was wrong on one day. He said it repeatedly. Listeners to his show know this.
February 27, 2014 at 10:43pm
The Greeks were right.
Having a govenment is different than not having govenment.
But forms of govenment differ from each other and they can be differentiated of a scale.
They are not all the same.
The is religion and there is no religion.
but all religions are not the same.
They can be differentiated of a scale.
There is employment and unemployment
But all employment is not the same.
The differences can be expressed on a scale.
Medical care, (health)
and on and on and on.
Monarchy is by definition conservative. They want to preserve the existing social relationships. It is also by definition totalitarianism.
Think Reagan’s trickle down economics.
The idea is to give the power to a few individuals who are better equipped to use it and they will trickle down what they do not need as they see fit.

For years ex US citizen Glenn Beck said that Fascists were a left wing ideology. At one point he was saying this a few times every show for months.
After the summer massacre at a Scandinavian summer camp a few years ago, ex US citizen Glenn Beck came out and said he was wrong and that indeed Fascists were right wingers..
Just because Germany lost WWII does not mean that fascism died. The same companies that ran the Nazi war machine are still thriving. The never lost power..
Of course you will find anti Semites in Germany. I hope no one paid a lot of money to find out that common knowledge.
In fact the Fascists are gaining power throughout Europe and elsewhere. Look at the Muslim Brotherhood. Look at the Ukraine.
These groups are ideologically similar and allies of the right wing groups in this country.
February 27, 2014 at 9:35pm
The Birchers were so fanatically anti-communist that, just like ex US citizen Glenn Beck does, they called anyone that opposed their view of their own supremacy a dirty communist.
They are fascists. They are right wing.
February 27, 2014 at 9:28pm
Memphismerlin You are correct.
If society is controlled by an individual then the society is on the right.
When a society begins to share power with more and more people it moves to the left.
A participatory democracy where everyone gets a say, where decisions are made by a majority or consensus or some such measure, is left wing.
A system like the US system of representative democracy is somewhere in the middle.
Why do you not know this anymore? You did when you were 10.
February 27, 2014 at 9:19pm
Fascism is an oligarchy.
It is not democratic.
It is right wing.
Ever since ever.
February 27, 2014 at 9:14pm
Is independent thinking the new euphemism for the right-wing’s mendacity?
Nazis are one of the many groups of fascists.
Fascism is a right wing ideology.
