7. Nightmare

 

Those Republicans who are against an assault weapons ban are crazy. I could not imagine why anyone would be against controlling the availability of assault rifles with clips of up to 100 bullets after Sandy Hook (Newtown). I support the right to defend yourself, or go hunting, with a handgun, rifle or shotgun, but I see no reason for the assault rifles. So I went to Free Republic (a conservative Republican web community) to see their reasons.

These Republicans want the assault weapons to defend themselves, but not against criminals. They want these weapons of mass destruction of children to defend themselves against the US government. They see the US government, particularly President Obama, as their enemy who is taking away their freedom and liberty. They believe we are headed down the road to a dictatorship under Obama. They see the taking away of these assault weapons as just the required first step Obama needs to accomplish this. They see themselves as patriots who are defending the Constitution. Some are calling for a revolution now, as in 1776, after all the Boston "Tea Party" was one of the first acts of that revolution.

The current presidential line of succession, as specified by the United States Constitution and the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 is: Vice President of the United States Joe Biden (D), and secondly Speaker of the House John Boehner (R). Very few times are the President and Vice President together in a non-tightly controlled environment, the presidential inauguration is one such occasion in which this is true. If the unthinkable happened, and both President Obama and Vice President Biden should die, a Republican, John Boehner would be our President. John Boehner's policies would be the exact opposite of those of President Obama and Vice President Biden's. The presidential line of succession should be changed so that the presidency would not switch parties if there was a co-ordinated attack by madmen on both the President and Vice President.

24. These teaparty types thought the same thing when Clinton was president

Remember Waco?

And, they were the John Birch Society in the 1960s when JFK and LBJ were president.

They're created by the RW billionaires (The Koch Brothers now, their father in the 60s, Richard Mellon Scaife in the 90s...) to gin up fear & anger in the angry white male base in the GOP.

14. Did you see this: "Firearms Instructor Leaves Gun in School Bathroom"

In response to last month’s massacre in Newtown, a Michigan charter school hired a firearms instructor as a security guard – only to find that the armed guard forgot his gun in the school bathroom.

The school took the National Rifle Association’s advice in hiring an armed guard, but the retired Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. firearms instructor, Clark Arnold, endangered students less than a week after he was hired by forgetting his deadly weapon in the school bathroom.

The Chatfield School of Lapeer, Michigan, which has about 500 enrolled students, was fortunate that the security guard remembered to retrieve the missing gun before a student came across it. The school director reported the incident to local authorities, but the retired firearms instructor will face no criminal charges.

They're off to a hell of a start!

20. It's so over the top it will only appeal to the true believer.

2. just proves that Carter's daughter is smarter than the average right winger.

One night Amy Carter accidentally walked into a Tea Party meeting, and for a few golden moments, the IQ of the room doubled. When she left, they went back to playing I Spy with the voices in their heads.

They tend to not have a clue, when they are using old propaganda from the Soviet Union - but then again they maybe have noe clue what so ever, to how Stalin really was - other than the opposite of what the United States was seen to be in the cold war that be...

I guess good old Stalin would have either turned around in his grave - or have a healthy laughter if he had known what the republicans of the United States had involved into after little less than 60 year... Sure they was not the same republicans he had to encounter when he was living...

Sometimes I think many of the old "enemies" is sitting somewhere, and laughing their ass off what the US have become just the last 15 year...
