Re: cursed be the US gun lobby!

Now if only the Jews and others were armed, things might have been different. At least, they can shoot back instead of heading straight to the ovens of Austrich. So the 2nd Amendment makes it difficult for an American Hitler to rise up. Does it? To me Trump is a sort of the feeble minded's Hitler.....

Re: Will the Supreme Court curb union power?

Bashing the unions will help make America great again. Cass, Don't you ever feel any shame about the insane things you say?... Probably not! :( It's hardly insane to oppose forcing workers to pay union dues that go towards political activity with which they disagree. If unions want dues-paying memb...

Re: cursed be the US gun lobby!

DC vs Heller can be overturned by a future court. But not now. So the practical quick fix is to turn schools into hard targets instead of the left's ban all guns approach. Interesting statement, which may be used in any way one wants. But the "hard target" idea is pure lunacy. Why not drafting all ...

Re: The Democratic Party is America's Socialist Party

That is why I am correct. How do you explain progressive taxation? How do you explain the welfare state? How do you explain why money flows from the higher income group to the lower? How do I explain these things Cassowary? To remedy real social ills: to meet needs , not wants! That misses the poin...

Re: cursed be the US gun lobby!

The Second Amendment when I read a copy of it last conferred no such universal right to gun ownership but rather a public DUTY on citizens to be prepared to defend the country in organised militias when necessary. The gun ownership was intended merely as the means to that end. Modern US gun owners ...

Re: Trump supports letting teachers and coaches carry guns in school

Even experienced shooters hit what they are shooting at a fraction of the time and that means it's more likely for a bystander to be shot when guns are employed. http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloads/pdf/public_information/RAND_FirearmEvaluation.pdf This is just the NRA trying to sell more guns.

Re: cursed be the US gun lobby!

Do teachers carry guns on duty in your native Singapore? If it is such a good idea then why don't they do it there? No they don't. Well, if you think that it is such a good idea for the USA why are you not lobbying the Singapore government to arm teachers up there too? Make the practice more univer...
