A Light at the End of the Tunnel? Or Another Train?

Surely there must be some mistake, because if Obama's backing off his AWB pledge it's a big testament to the political force behind the 2nd Amendment.

Maybe I should follow Pangovit's advice and not believe it because it's on Fox. This sounds positive, but I'm not giving him the combo to the safe.

As asked on here before, what the heck does crime in Mexico have to do with Our constitutional rights?

Now Pangocat has himself a quandary. He now has Fox News supporting his stated position, that being that Obama won't mess with our 2nd amendment rights, while CNN id refuting his stated position by saying that Obama wants to pass another AWB to curb crime in Mexico.
It will be interesting to see how he will try and spin and wiggle thru this one.
2 to 1 he won't even respond to this thread.

I knew there was a catch there somewhere. Maybe he floated two different versions to the press to see which one causes more of an uproar, so he could go with the other one.

Either that, or down the road he'll say, "Yes, I said I don't want to ban assault weapons to curb violence in Mexico. That's true -- it's not why I want to ban them. I want to ban them because a disarmed citizenry will be more dependent on the government.."

I'm not a trusting soul when it comes to government, but I am at least hopeful. If he keeps his word on this I think I owe SoCokhunter the beverage of his choice. I hope so. That will be a bet I won't mind paying off.

If all you teabaggers would learn to read critically you might not be so confused. Just because some Fox/CNN reporter tells you what to think doesn't mean you need to give up using your brain.

Forgett what they say Obama's words mean, read the words and make up your own mind. You folks are so used to getting spoon fed propaganda pap that you've given up any ablility to think for yourselves, even on one of your pet issues.

Here's a hint, when things are inside of these "_____" that means it's a direct quote, read it.

Here's another hint to understanding your prez. He usually means what he says and doesn't change his mind for political expediency. Look at his web site from the campaign, what was on there then is where he stands now.

He wants to reinstate the AWB (what ever they decide an AW is). He also is a Constitutional scholar and respects the law as interpreted by the SCOTUS. Heller is the way things are. This is probably the most conservative court you are likely to see in quite a while.

Politicaly guns are about ten times less fun than imigration, look for serious gun legislation to come up in like 2056, or later. So ya, that's a train coming but it will arive after you are in the old folks home.

A cynic would say that unregulated guns only help more Dems to get elected as it thins the ranks of late middle aged conservatives.

Of course a couple Oklahoma Cities or so, also involving black guns could change things. I'd wait and track the fearmongering.

Dang you pangocat, you made me lose that bet !!!
pangocat said " I Love President Bush, he was the best President ever to have served in the office and JTapia is a great man deserving of all the happiness that life has to offer".
So "______" doesn't necessarily mean a direct quote from anyone. What they mean is that's what the writer wants you to believe is what the quoted person said.
What Internet service do you have? I would have thought that the land of Oz over the rainbow, where you seem to be living, would have no Internet service.
I guess he IS a wonderful Wizard if ever there was a wonderful Wizard because of the wonderful things he does.

Since we're on opposite sides of the spectrum, Civolet, I just want to clarify something.

If we're the "teabaggers", doesn't that make you the "teabaggee?" No wonder you're so fascinated with gay imagery and we can't understand anything you say.

Quote:
2. teabagger A misinformed, right-wing corporate media consumer who often fails to understand that BOTH major parties represent a corrupt plutocracy that steals from the middle class by taxing labor and profiting from corporate tax subsidies.

A teabagger also often fails to acknowledge that George W. Bush and his neo-conservative minions perpetrated one of the boldest and most egregious executive power grabs in the history of the United States. Furthermore, teabaggers mistakenly continue to blame a newly elected President Obama for all that ails the United States of America, based on a grossly flawed perception of reality (including latent racial prejudice) and despite the fact the U.S. economy collapsed on the previous administration's watch.

Teabaggers are also known to base their misguided, right-wing-media-inspired beliefs about President Obama on stupid conspiracy theories about totalitarian takeovers, FEMA camps, etc., despite the fact these very same theories have been circulating around on the Internet for years, and were originally linked to neo-conservative cabalists at a time when Barack Obama had not even entered national politics. Teabaggers also are known to be particularly paranoid, xenophobic and intolerant, especially with regard to immigrants and anyone who isn't white.

Since you have such a fascination with "teabagging," all I can say is go nuts with it. Have yourself a ball....really give it a good licking. You've got it in the bag, and even though things might get hairy, I'm sure you'll succeed in the end.

And how long did it take you to input that definition into Urban Dictionary? That site is the perfect research forum for you. You can come up with your own conclusions ahead of time and create your own data to support it, which you can then post to a forum somewhere to reference yourself.

So how's 7th grade coming, anyway?
