Placeholder It's Your Call

New term

These mass shootings are basically a matter of gun safety. We should call it “gun safety” and stop using the divisive term “gun control” when describing it.

Study time

You know, it’s funny how Americans don’t know their history. Study the history of the Democratic Party. Who started the Ku Klux Klan in this country? The Democratic Party. Who brought the first hate group to this country? The Democratic Party. Who wanted slavery? The Democratic Party. Who wanted to stop the civil rights movement in the ’60s? The Democratic Party. Now, if you don’t believe me, go back and read your history books. Study, people.

College man

Former President Barack Obama is first and second in getting the most votes for president. In third place, for getting the most popular votes is Hillary Clinton. I believe in the Electoral College, in order for all states to get a say in who gets the honor to serve as president. Donald Trump is an Electoral College presidential winner. Trump is aberration of the American way. Hillary Clinton received nearly 3 million more popular votes for president. Check the facts.

Go Chiefs

It must really look nice for all the people coming into town to see the Chiefs to see panhandlers standing on all the exits to and from Interstate 29.

Deadly rhetoric

Two horrific mass shootings in the United States in one day. This lands squarely on the shoulders of Trump, who preaches nothing but racist hatred. At the first shooting in El Paso, the suspect claimed he wanted to kill as many Mexicans as possible because they are taking our jobs. Gee, where have we heard this before?

Enough, already

If the U.S. Congress cannot get rid of assault weapons, then we need to get rid of Congress. They put political contributions above lives. Enough is enough.

Long run

Let’s get things perfectly clear. Trump is not president because he got the most votes. He lost by over 3 million votes. Plus, Medicare for all will not take money out of your pocket. It will put money in it. Yes, it will come out of your paycheck, but it will be cheaper than insurance, saving you money.

No sense

Yeah, it’s school time. Free clothes, free backpacks, free shoes, free school supplies. Then you see these kids walking around with $100 to $200 phones. How does that work out? I can’t figure it out. Something ain’t right.

You know it

I don’t want this to sound petty, but I want to give you an example of the double standards in this country. When the politician from Texas was talking in a newscast about going home because of the mass shooting, he was smiling. He had the biggest smile on his face. And it was probably a nervous smile, and no one said anything, and that’s good. Except for the fact that if he had been a Republican, the media would have jumped all over him. That’s just an example, and most of you people know it’s true.

Teach goodness

Looks like we need the Ten Commandments back in the schools, especially the sixth one — thou shall not murder.

I've spent almost the whole day reading "Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court". I highly recommend it; it proves without a doubt the desperate measures the Dems along with the media went to in their unsuccessful attempt to keep Justice Kavanaugh from being confirmed. They are so consumed with their hate for President Trump that they stooped to filthy depths to ruin a good man's reputation. It's all factual - all the reference notes are there. There's an excellent chance President Trump will be appointing another Justice when he wins his second term in 2020. Justice Ginsberg is 86 and in failing health. Maybe Roe v Wade will be overturned? We can pray!

Here's an interesting article:

Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it's not the weapons used.

https://www.ammoland.com/2013/04/every-mass-shooting-in-the-last-20-years-shares-psychotropic-drugs/?fbclid=IwAR36GJRyvLw9kRjJYNegQnDiXmCczpc1SeYp9zzrT4CU3F4sSDclKoJufLo#ixzz5vanIKJxr

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.



Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information, show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior.

Interesting to people who watch professional wrestling, maybe. An opinion pieces from “ammoland?” Good grief.

B4 makes WAY more sense than opinion pieces from VajLand...[tongue_smile]

Haha! Keep trying. The hole in the logic in the opinion piece from “Ammoland” is big enough to drive several trucks through. Kinda a simple thinker, aren’t you?

Looks like AOC's chief of staff is in hot water. The Feds are investigating him for campaign finance violations. He's already resigned from his position with AOC - time to cut and run for him. Ocasio-Cortez didn't show up to a scheduled event that she had this past weekend and her office refused to comment on the matter. Wasn't she the one who was bellyaching about "dark money"?

jdw64485

Long run. Your wrong. Medicare for all will be very expensive. It may not take money from your welfare check but it sure will from the working tax payers. My health insurance is $ 6.80 a month. So don't mess with what i have. If you not disabled get out support yourself and family.

aj0201

What health insurance do you have for less than $10 a month?

jdw64485

United Healthcare

aj0201

For $7 a month? That’s Obamacare isn’t it?

B4

jdw64485 - I also have United Healthcare but my monthly premium is $18. It depends on what part of Missouri you reside in as to what the premiums are. Several years ago I had a $0 premium with some other insurance but UHC is the best as far as I'm concerned. My spouse had major surgery (5 hrs duration) this past winter and the amount owed after insurance was less than $500. That included the surgeon, hospital and anesthesiologist billings.



How's North Carolina?

Obama didn't invent United Healthcare, vaj0201, & Al Gore didn't invent the Internet either... [tongue_smile]

Long run---(Medicare for all)---The most important aspect of healthcare is intelligent, well-trained physicians. They must spend many years (and dollars) in medical schools developing their talents. They are in classrooms and study halls while we are exposing ourselves to things which make us sick and having accidents. What will their motivation be if there is no financial incentive to "be the best"? If the good surgeons make the same as lesser surgeons, why would they invest so much time and financial resources to gain better skills?

aj0201

Ugh. I bill Medicare now. In a year or so, that’ll be all I bill. Medicare is the easiest insurance for me to bill. No random denials that cost me time and effort to prove. As such, even though it’s reimbursement is slightly less than a private company, overall it’s most lucrative. And, I’m a year I’ll cancel my contract with the billing service and keep more dollars in my pocket. I don’t work for the government and they don’t tell me how to treat my clients.

College man---(popular vote vs electoral college)--I know liberals won't admit it, but Trump out-campaigned Hillary in the key states necessary for him to win. As a result we have a robust economy and people have jobs---real jobs, not Obama's "make-work" jobs. Trump saved the labor unions who watched their jobs steadily move overseas, Trump brought them back. America won in 2016!

Biden named TWO cities incorrectly....Houston, and Michigan-instead of ElPaso and Dayton, OH ..SO WHAT

munchman

Simple and effective solution to gun violence would be to pass laws requiring the registration on the state and federal level every single firearm. Establish mandatory hard prison terms and hugh fines if caught with an unregistered firearm. Those not eligible could not register any guns. Also any person seeking to register a firearm must pass the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Test to show. mental competency. Easy Peasy. Only sane eligible people will have guns.

WakeUpUS

Taking away the law-abiding citizen's guns will NEVER solve the problem, munchman. That's the OPPOSITE of 'common sense', which is typical of you Leftist Democrat-Socialist operatives...[whistling][huh][thumbdown][tongue_smile]

i tend to agree with a mental competency test...the status quo isn't working. However i refuse to surrender my weapons.

aj0201

Has anybody asked you to surrender your weapons?

zzsnot303

lol yeah. Saint Joe PD

aj0201

They just came to your door and asked you to surrender weapons?

aj0201

Let’s ask this; if a family member heard you talking about suicide, and reported it to police, would you voluntarily give up your weapons for a temporary amount of time? Or if they came across a kill/rape list in your backpack, would you give up your weapons then?

zzsnot303

The situation doesn't apply to me, so i dunno

It’s rhetorical.

Well, the President has come out in support of “red flag laws.” I actually full on agree with him on this as it stands now. These scenarios are likely in a state with red flag laws. Why are you so afraid of discussion? You guys really can’t handle being challenged, huh?

Want to stop drunk drivers from killing sober drivers? Ban sober drivers from driving. That's how gun control works.

Is it reasonable to punish all gunowners because of the actions of a few mentally disturbed people? Is it reasonable to punish all Muslims due to the actions of a small number of mentally disturbed people? Why do Democrats constantly demand more control over our lives? Isn't that what the American Revolution all about?

Art Vandelay

Perhaps they are tired of nutcases who can easily purchase assault weapons killing innocent passersby. And please let's not forget which political party keeps sticking its nose into the bedrooms of citizens.

aj0201

No. The Revolution was about lack of representation in government. “No taxation without representation,” remember that?

James Bond1

The Muslim world is quite different than the Judeo-Christian world. we don't put Allah on our coins. We don't put Allah on our currency. For two hundred years our politicians swore in office...…….and it was God...……...not Allah in the ceremony. If a Muslim adheared to their religion, they would be violating too many things in our Democracy. Somebody would need to violate their religion. We don't ask Muslims to adhear to Christian standards in their nation...……...I'm not sure why we have to adopt Muslim standards in ours.

aj0201

What aspects of Islam would be violated for a Muslim in US democracy, as you call it?

James Bond1

aj………….well, as you know,I am not particularly knowledgable about the specifics of the Muslim world. Was there 5 instances of prayer...……...was bowing or kneeling to the west an issue. Are there restrictions of buildings or any structures. What about what they wear...………..Those women show up in gowns and hoods and whatever. I know em, when I see em. Sure enough different. How about sipping a beer...…? It's really hard to assemble all the rules and practices since some of those folks violate things to some degree. But they go nuts when someone else interfers with Muslim practices.

James Bond1

I guess it would be a violation to be sworn into Congress as was our practice for over 200 years. Allah wasn't in the balcony .

James Bond1

You don't suppose they bow to the east do you...………………….?

aj0201

You’re not allowed to pray in a democracy? You have to sip beer in a democracy? Lots of folks believe in abstinence from alcohol.

aj0201

Why would you want to interfere with a Muslim praying? Why would you want to dictate what the women wear? Again, you don’t specify how any of this is in violation of Islamic rules.

Kharnage86

Well James has admitted that he doesn't know a lot about the Muslim practices, but again everyone on this site knows how lax he is when comes to research of any kind or giving factual responses Lol
