guns don't kill people

people with guns kill people

Im not an anti or pro gun nut. But we need to do a better job keeping guns away from the unstable -American population. By that I mean Americans who are unstable.

The only way I can see voter ID requirement as fair (constitutional)

Is if the state provided free IDs to everyone. Otherwise it is a poll tax. In fact they would have to have mobil id issuing teams because the poor old and infirm may not be able to make it to the licensing intity.

Does Andrea Mitchell felate Romney daily

or am I just catching her on an unusual day? She's practically about to orgasm over a speech he's giving in which he says obama doesn't love entrepreneurs enough. "he's so on message...and dreamy!" ok i paraphrase, but still.

we must really be 20 points ahead

"In our exclusive Florida Decides Poll, Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are in a virtual dead heat in Florida, with Obama getting 46 percent of the vote and Romney getting 45 percent. Another 2 percent say they plan to vote for libertarian Gary Johnson and 7 percent remain undecided at this time."

well we tried. it isn't working. i guess we might as well give up now. (concern trolling)

has anyone noticed how that meme pops up around here whenever we get the repubs on the ropes? it goes hand in hand with "we should stop this and take the high road" and "average americans don't care about that, we need to stick to issues."

In Obama We Trust (Advocate's First Presidential Endorsement in Decades)

Never has the substantial progress in equal rights and treatment of LGBT people been more at risk than in this presidential contest. This election presents a choice between starkly opposing futures.

Barack Obama is a leader of undeniable accomplishment, vision, and integrity on LGBT rights. His opponent Mitt Romney betrays equality on numerous issues and aligns himself with a faction of the Republican Party that does not include equality among its declared ideals.

In Pa., Voter ID Law Already Changing The Electoral Landscape

The estimated 750,000 voters who do not have state-issued IDs in Pennsylvania surpasses President Obama’s margin of victory in 2008. Many of the voters without ID are in poor and minority communities — typically blocs that vote Democratic. Democrats’ worst fears appeared to be confirmed when the Republican leader of the state House, who helped shepherd the legislation onto the books, recently boasted that it will “allow” Mitt Romney win the Keystone State.

They will do anything to win. This includes disenfranchising poor and minority voters.
