    You are adding nothing of value to the discussion. Especially when you merely cut and paste from discredited websites. Regardless, a handful of positive outcomes from private ownership of firearms does not justify the thousand slaughtered in other encounters. Your 2d Amendment is no longer relevant in modern America, but since Conservatives, by definition do not evolve or progress, you are the last ones to see.

    8700 women slaughtered by weapons in the hands of thei partners through 2013.

    88 people killed by so called “Muslim terrorists” through 2013. Add in 9/11 and you are not even 1/2 way there.

    Want to know who the real domestic terrorists are?

    Look in the mirror, Blazers. Well done.

    My wife and I paid about $50K in taxes last year. I gladly pay this amount. I suspect it is more than you pay, and is more than most people make. I don’t give you my money directly to you to make your life better, Socialism does not require this-perhaps Communism does, but unless you were home schooled and fed conservative propaganda, I hope you understand the difference.

    I do give it willingly to my Government, however, so that everyone can have a better life. My life is very good, and I am happy to give back because much is given to me. If that amount increases under a President Sanders, I will gladly pay more, especially knowing that it will not be going for pointless and illegal wars, nor corporate welfare.

    And the poor here will not be better off if failed Right Wing policies like trickle down economics is employed, unsuccessfully, again. And in any rate the way we take care of our poor here is a disgrace. Their condition under a more Socialistic society will only improve.

    Finally, I do not own a car, let alone a Mercedes. I have an 8 minute walking commute from my home to my office in Chicago and have not owned a car in 23 years. But my takes still pay for your roads and bridges. I don’t complain. It’s only money.

    I just spent 3 weeks in Germany, including Berlin. My company insured 1/2 of the Fortune 500 companies, and I travel world wide for business and pleasure. My experience comes from education and experience, not a website. Can you say the same?

    And, BTW, if you only ask miserable people how they are, you will generally find enough data points to internally validate your false assumption that people in the EU are miserable. I’m sure the US homeless, hungry and incarcerated will tell you the same thing-but the Right here will just dismiss them as whining takers. What makes those same people in the EU such a reliable indicator of the happiness factor in the EU-beyond cultural bias?

    Again, please stop confusing Socialism with Communism. Americans will not be sapped of ambition under socialism as it’s not “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” It’s “you can be the best you can be because you don’t to need to take a second job to pay for childcare, to worry about how you are going to pay for health care or afford college.” Once humans are freed from worrying about the basics of life, they can concentrate on growth, development and working hard.

    Finally, consider Mercedes Benz. When you want to buy a luxury automobile, you don’t think of a US company like Ford. You think Mercedes. A German company. American exceptionalism is OK in moderation. But don’t let hyper-patriotism blind you to the rest of the accomplishments in the world

    Post WWII Western European Socialism has not lead to the emergence of murderous dictators on the past 70 years. To suggest otherwise is an outright lie.

    Again, please do not confuse Socialism with Communism. They are not interchangeable.

    The people of France, with whom I have spent much time (as recent as 3 weeks ago in Paris) have a lifestyle which should be the envy of every educated, cultured and civilized American. Taxes are higher than here in the US, but once you factor in all of the social services which are supplied by the government, which must be paid out of pocket (universal health care, education, child care, family leave etc.) in the US, the tax burden is not as significant as one might believe. If we are headed to becoming France, I say..Full Speed Ahead!

    And as far as Greece, yes, some states will be better at managing their economy than others. Just like the US. And thankfully the EU is there to take care of their members in tough times, just like the Federal Government does here. Hopefully, if our society embraces the best aspects of Socialism, we will also become more of a part of the global community, and a new world organization, stronger and better than the UN, will emerge and allow us to help and be helped by the entire world.

    Returning to the America you knew in the 1950′s, let alone 200 years ago is not an option. America must progress. A nation of cowboys and cave men cannot survive in the modern, evolved world.

    Socialism has failed? No. Look at the quality of life in Europe and the Nordic Region. The people there have the highest quality of life and are the happiest people in the world. The US can and should learn from the rest of the modern, progressive democracies in the world, take the best of Socialism and apply it to our society. Trump represents everything that is wrong about the US. Sanders, or anyone who advocates the type of Socialism practiced in more enlightened areas of the world, offers a great future for evolved Americas and signals the end of the global embarrassment that past Republican administrations have brought. The future is indeed bright.

    Communism has not been a success. But Communism and Socialism are vastly different, and no mainstream Democratic candidate advocates for Communism.

    You tell me. You come here because you can always find “blacks behaving badly” click bait and get outrageously outraged over while male christian persecution, so you people are way ahead of me when it comes to having your feelings of blatant racism validated by your fellow travelers.

    it genetic inferiority? Lower intelligence? Just flat out laziness? If I want to know the latest racist theories against African Americans, this is where I come. And I have seen it all. So what is your theory?

  • [-5] February 9, 2016 at 11:55am

    Yes, lets kill people over a video. How very ISIS of you.

  • February 9, 2016 at 11:54am

    Advocating violence over a political disagreement in a school district you do not live in? Very dangerous and irresponsible. And reported.

  • [-15] February 9, 2016 at 11:48am

    Said..a White Man who got his? And now that he got his, everyone else is just a lazy anti-white racist?

    And we have actual foreign governments occupying the US in 2016 which require that armed citizens repel the invaders? You made my point. Your thinking, as well as the original reason for the 2d Amendment are 200+ years out of date. The US has progressed since then. You might want to catch up with modern American society and with the rest of the world.

    Freedom? To do what? Slaughter your family? Kill your spouse is a domestic assault? Blow your brains out in a suicide? Shoot your own kid sneaking into the house at night?

    Again, this is not 1776 and there is no foreign occupying force for you to fight with a privately owned weapon-not that you would have any effect on a modern army if there were. Food comes from supermarkets, so you don’t need a weapon to feed your family . And if you live in such a dangerous place that you need to be armed for protection, you need to move to a better neighborhood. I see no need for you to be armed today as the original reasons for the 2d Amendment no longer exist in modern society.

  • February 7, 2016 at 11:45pm

    Tell me again why this private citizen needed to be armed? It is 2016, not 1716. The British are not coming, and there is no need for a well regulated militia. Is his dead family any better off due to the antiquated 2d Amendment?

    This disgusts me as an American.

    Just the price we pay to insure the well regulated militia is fully armed and ready to take back our country from the Marxist Muslim atheist imposter in the White House. Shall not be infringed means we occasionally have to allow the occasional slaughter of entire families, cause otherwise ISIS is coming to cut our throats before putting us all in Jade Helm FEMA bunkers disguised as a Walmart.

    @Lt_Scrounge

    Suggestion: Before you rush to defend a racist comment, please make sure you come armed with the correct racist stereotype. The OP referenced “porch critters,” by which he meant “************.” That racist slur implies that all African Americans are lazy, sub-human, shiftless and gather on their front porches collecting welfare.

    Your racist stereotype is that all African Americans are criminals. It really does not help the OP since he is using a different racist stereotype. Do instead of helping your fellow traveler, you simply provide me with additional evidence the next time someone says (with a straight face, I imagine) that there are no racists here.

  • February 7, 2016 at 11:26am

    I’m glad you learned to say projection, but I don’t think you understand what it means or where it applies.

    The racist OP knew exactly what he was saying. So do you. You hear the dog whistle.

    And your uncivil STFU comment is inappropriate and reported.

  • [11] February 5, 2016 at 8:48pm

    Porch Critters? Only 3 posts down for a racist comment. Sadly the norm. White Power!

    I cherry picked nothing. Certain posters lacked the intellectual honesty to place the blame on anyone but Democrats and African Americans. Nothing happens in a vacuum, so I merely provided some context to the one sided treatment which the issue was being given.

    I will take your saying “Alinsky” and engaging in a personal (and reported) attack as a concession that you have nothing of merit to add to the conversation.

  • February 4, 2016 at 3:56pm

    Dog whistle. Racist.

    I did not. I just pointed out that there was more to the story. Also, I reported your personal attack.

    Like Detroit, Flint was a one industry town: the Auto Industry. The collapse of that one industry lead to white flight, which left an unemployed populous with little tax base to support schools and infrastructure. Urban decay followed, and leadership stepped up which was representative of the race that was left in place and largely ignored by the mostly white suburbs. And they a Republican Governor or two comes along with their trickle down fables, and the City descends into poverty even further.

    Buy hey, what do facts matter here. It’s better to use dog whistles and code words to dance around what you all are saying to yourselves: Ni%%ers can’t run anything and their children should suffer while we call them names.

    I’m from Detroit and own a second home in Traverse City. This.Is.Personal.
