3. Was it enough when we had 60 senator and the house majority

 

I don't care if it was only 4 months or however long it was. Nothing was done or even discussed. That is atrocious!

26. There weren't enough votes

Bernie Sanders alone knocks it down to 59. Then there are the rest of the terrified Dems on the issue.

4. WOW.

That was a phenomenal statement by Obama. It makes me proud to have voted for him.

And I've got to think every viewer outside the United States who's seen that video is thinking, "Yes, absolutely. And WTF is wrong with the American public and American legislators that they don't understand this?!"

14. it's so shitty of you to use the President's speech on this mass shooting to snark on Sanders

 

that's really one of the shittiest and stupidest things I've seen on DU in a long time. You should be ashamed.

15. Cause you've been on DU for so long.

The TPP is one of the shittiest deals he doing to the American Public but I'm sure that's OK with you. And you don't think it's going to make things worse than it already is. That's pure stupidity.

I'm proud to address his lack of action on this issue and a host of others that have brought us to this point.

Your incredible ignorance is why this shit keeps happening so you can shove it.

16. first you snark on Sanders, now you're babbling about TPP

 

all on a thread about the mass shooting in Oregon.
WTF is your problem? You should be ashamed, or if your thoughts are so deranged that you think this is appropriate, considering seeking professional help. Seriously. Otherwise, posting like that is just idiotic.

17. Just proves my point.

If you can't figure out that when the environment society has to live deteriorates crime goes up.

Never mind, I know you and your ilk. You love to hear your own voice and never mind the facts.

Ha! I'm flame baiting? Your post are idiotic. Go back to school.

"WTF is your problem?" Pretty speeches that accomplish nothing. But they seem to work well on you.

What the fuck is he going to do about it.

18. "when the environment society has to live deteriorates crime goes up." = incoherent statement

 

Which proves my point that your thoughts are so disordered that you don't know what you're doing, writing, or even thinking.
Seriously, consider getting some help.

25. Bernie is supportive of existing gun laws.

He's been on the wrong side of the issue.

23. Really? And what would LBJ do in this situation?

The Eighty-ninth United States Congress was a meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, composed of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in Washington, DC from January 3, 1965 to January 3, 1967, during the third and fourth years of Lyndon Johnson's presidency. The apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives was based on the Eighteenth Census of the United States in 1960. Both chambers had a Democratic supermajority. It is regarded as "arguably the most productive in American history".[1] Some of its landmark legislation includes the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, the Voting Rights Act, Higher Education Act, and Freedom of Information Act.
