Re: “Pull the global trigger on gun control

This article is complete nonsense on its face. If , as the author says, the global arms treaty was simply to prevent us from selling to bad actors around the world, it would be absolutely unecessary as we could just pass our own Fed law under the commerce clause etc. It is an obvious truth that supporters of this treaty wish to subjugate Americans to foreign courts and use international law to justify civil disarmament in the name of the Children regardless of the truth of the violence it claims to be preventing. It's not about the guns, it's about the Control.

Re: “Pull the global trigger on gun control

One of the key leader states assigned to the conference proposing the Arms Trade Treaty was Iran, a prolific weapons smuggling country if there ever was one. With winners like that at the helm, you know you can trust the outcome.

Re: “Aaron Swartz and the freedom to connect

Gert real, this Administration rather be burned alive at the stake rather than admit a wrong. If they won't admit to their lies and incompetence surrounding Bengahzi there isn't a snowball's chance they will do a thing about this.

Re: “Pull the global trigger on gun control

Sorry Amy, but a global treaty would have zero effect on gun ownership in the US. We have the 2nd Amendment. Like the others in the Bill of Rights and the orginal Amendments, it is an INDIVIDUAL RIGHT. Words like "shall not be infringed" are in there somewhere.

Re: “Across that bridge, again

blah blah blah blah blah. The flip side of this coin is...Illegals tend to vote Democrat. A person can submit a provisional ballot along with their proof of citizenship at the time of voting if they have not already re-registered. The problem arose when DMV personnel had people register to vote at the time they got a license or ID whether they were a citizen or not. In addition groups like ACORN registered thousands of people who were not eligible to vote. The argument that "Many of these people have since become citizens" is a crock of chicken poop. There is absolutely no evidence to show this is true. And for the few that have...they were NOT eligible at the time they registered which makes the registration Null and Void. Florida and every other State has a legal obligation to purge voter registrations from their rolls if the individual does not meet that State’s and the Federal Government’s requirements of eligibility. Non-citizens, felons, dead people and people who vote in other states cannot vote in Florida. And even then they can only vote once per election. How hard is that to understand?

Re: “Across that bridge, again

Denying access to the voting booth to people who are apt to vote for Democrats is a common Republican strategy.

And Americans who don't think that THEY will ever be targeted are cheering for them and just keep voting for them.

Our politicians on both sides of the aisle have gotten so arrogant and so secure in the power of party politics that they don't even try to hide their corruption. They do it right out in the open.

Re: “Obama's policies: The real scandal in Cartagena

On the above issues, Obama sounded just like Bush 43, Clinton, Bush 42, Reagan on all the issues and every President since Kennedy where it concerns Cuba. As Obama really said nothing about these subjects during his first campaign nor did any of it come up during his first 2 years when Democrats controlled both the Executive and Legislative branches, I don't think anybody believed he was going to come out with a policy that was any different than what we have had for the past 30-50 years.

Re: “While walking black: The killing of Trayvon Martin

But, realistically, someone was shot and killed, with several witnesses calling 911, stating that the crying stopped after the gun was fired. Does that alone not warrant an arrest? Or, at least some type of investigation? Even with race aside I still can't understand why this young man's killer is still walking the streets, with his gun??? Are you kidding me??? I heard on the news they arrested the person who threw flour on Kim Kardashian, and an investigation is in process. This just goes to show where our priorities are in this country.

Re: “While walking black: The killing of Trayvon Martin

So basically there is no information as to whom was assaulting whom. But the assault stopped when the gun fired.. The article reads as though we should hang Zimmerman for defending himself if that is what happened.. I wonder why the black guy ran? (He's not from Africa.) Did he have a history of violence? What does his twitter history reveal about him? Doesn't take much to find out what this kid was really like. Funny how we're not reading much about this stuff..

Yeah. You never know when an area will be hit by a 9+ earthquake and tidal wave.

Re: “New Obama campaign co-chair: 'The president is wrong'

I, too, am disappointed with President Obama, but all the crazy people running against him are making it impossible to vote for anyone BUT the president.

Those other guys are nuts.

Re: “New Obama campaign co-chair: 'The president is wrong'

Not saying it would be right or that his track record is even acceptable to me, but he could probably pocket that money and win re-election, accepting via phone call from a hammock in the Bahamas the way the competition has been self-destructing.

Re: “New Obama campaign co-chair: 'The president is wrong'

Obama is not going to be able to raise the $800 million to $1 Billion he is going to need to win re-election without the help of super pacs. He and his supporters spent $1 Billion in the last election (outspending McCain nearly 2-1) and won with only 6% of the vote. For all you algebra impared that means that if only 3.1% of the voters had voted the other way Obama would still be the Junior Senator from Illinois. This time around he is going to need a lot more than a vapid slogan like "Hope and Change" to run on.

Re: “Obama's late payment to mortgage-fraud victims

The reason many heard echos of the past is because so much of the speech was retreaded.

It really bites that the Republican Congress would not close the prison when Obama ordered it closed. Wait a minute...

Re: “Republicans divided, citizens united

Whistling past the graveyard. The author should stop smoking so much dope. It hurts the memory. They obviously forgot the vicious battle between Hillary and Obama. In fact, it was the Hillary campaign who first raised questions about Obama's birth certificate...NOT the Republicans.

Re: “Don't ice out public media

"I refuse to imagine my region without my community radio station."

Undoubtedly the speaker of this statement has such a small mind that the statement is absolutely true.

Re: “'The Comeback Kid' and the kids who won't '

The slew of bills signed during the lame duck session will hurt rather than help the majority of citizens. As usual, mainstream media fulfills its duty as govt/corporate PR agent, this time by naming Obummer "Comeback Kid" for signing ill-advised, lame, and ineffective legislation.
