Should America work towards becoming a gun-free Country?

Should we be passing legislation to remove items that serve no purpose but causation of death from our great Nation?

Hillary Clinton: No regret on Iraq vote

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she is not sorry she voted for a resolution authorizing President Bush to take military action in Iraq despite the recent problems there but she does regret "the way the president used the authority."

Hillary Clinton Defends 2002 Iraq War Vote On Meet The Press



Moderator Tim Russert pointed out that the title of the resolution was the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002." Clinton responded saying, "We can have this Jesuitical argument about what exactly was meant. But when Chuck Hagel, who helped to draft the resolution said, 'It was not a vote for war,' What I was told directly by the White House in response to my question, 'If you are given this authority, will you put the inspectors in and permit them to finish their job,' I was told that's exactly what we intended to do. "

Hillary Clinton's Business Legacy at the State Department (leading part in drafting TPP)


She’s pressed the case for U.S. business in Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries in China’s shadow. She’s also taken a leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the free-trade pact that would give U.S. companies a leg up on their Chinese competitors.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

http://drones.pitchinteractive.com/

Since 2004, the US has been practicing in a new kind of clandestine military operation. The justification for using drones to take out enemy targets is appealing because it removes the risk of losing American military, it's much cheaper than deploying soldiers, it's politically much easier to maneuver (i.e. flying a drone within Pakistan vs. sending troops) and it keeps the world in the dark about what is actually happening. It takes the conflict out of sight, out of mind. The success rate is extremely low and the cost on civilian lives and the general well-being of the population is very high. This project helps to bring light on the topic of drones. Not to speak for or against, but to inform and to allow you to see for yourself whether you can support drone usage or not.

No. But...

Dick Cheney exists.

Dick Cheney is a Dick.

I say hateful things about Dick Cheney.

What gives me that right?

The fact that Dick Cheney exists gives me that right.

Even if Dick Cheney did not exist, I could say hateful things about an imaginary person who has the same traits that "real" Dick Cheney possesses.

I will not have you try to take that right away from me.

I wish to continue to hate on Dick Cheney.

War!

What is it good for?

we could remove the "center" from that statement.

That may be a little more honest.

Rah Rah Party Line!!!!! Go Go Our Team!!!

Look, people call it as they see it. Claiming they are Paulites or other disparaging responses such as seen in this thread does you no good. How about taking a look at what is going on.

I do appreciate the Lilly Ledbetter law. I do appreciate his support of LGBT. But, beyond those two areas? Not much "Left" in his actions.
