No one should be allowed to vote unless they are citizens and can prove it. You can spin it how you wish but that is the bottom line..  To allow just anyone to vote would be absurd..

Example of propaganda

"I'd love to meet the House GOP genius who thought in the middle of a budget crisis and creating a government shutdown, that this is the perfect time to remind Americans which party is also against contraception access."

Pardon me, but has anyone suggested that you can't buy the pills yourself, or any other form of birth control?   Have they?

And, if you will check around I think you will find that almost all Republicians believe in birth control, unless their church is against it, and the church don't care what party you belong to, does it?

Hmmm….don’t mention the great state of Texas to women right now.  Women and the Texas GOP are basically at war!  The new voter ID law that was passed to thwart the virtually non-existent voter fraud problem in Texas is effectively inhibiting some women from voting in the current early voting election.   It’s been in recent newspapers…..stories of women who have been voting for years being required to sign an avadavat at the polling place attesting to who they are, vote with a provisional ballot and then have 6 days to produce original documentation of either their birth certificate, divorce decree or perhaps their marriage license…whatever might have precipitated their name change in the event their voter ID and their voter registration are not identical.  And then the election board has the option of whether or not they will count the vote....even after she has produced the required documentation.  This whole kerfuffle will likely encourage many young women not to change their name after marriage in the future. 

 

One last point:  When I say voter fraud is virtually non-existent in Texas….it’s true.  Since 2004, three-term Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) has pursued exactly 66 cases of voter irregularity…..of which only 4 cases involved someone illegally casting a ballot at a polling place where a picture ID would have prevented the fraud.   Some may say….that’s just the cases he was able to identify.  Oh spare me!!  If true.....then he must be really bad at his job!

Over the last couple of years, the Republican Party has seemed determined to push women voters away.  The "war on women" -- which included restrictions on reproductive rights, targeting Planned Parenthood, opposing pay equity laws, voting against the Violence Against Women Act, forcing women to undergo medically unnecessary exams, etc., etc. has cost GOP candidates dearly.

 

After last year's elections, party leaders recognized the problem and said they would be careful not to repeat the same mistakes. But, apparently Republicans have learned nothing!!  When I said they are “really slow learners”…. that may have been too kind.

 

In the middle of the night on Saturday, House Republicans slid a rule into a bill to fund the government that would allow employers to deny their employees insurance coverage for contraception on moral grounds.  The so-called "conscience clause," is the same proposal Republicans have trotted out again and again during the health care debate.  It's almost certain not to become law, but the symbolic attempt alone is a clear reminder of where the party still is on reproductive health.

 

I'd love to meet the House GOP genius who thought in the middle of a budget crisis and creating a government shutdown, that this is the perfect time to remind Americans which party is also against contraception access.

 

Once again House Republicans have found a way to mount an ideological attack on women's health as the clock ticks down on a crisis they created!!

 

Proceed GOP…….please, please….proceed!

Well, well, well.  The House voted for the 40th time on Friday to repeal President Barack Obama's health care reform law before heading home for a five week recess.  The GOP-controlled House voted to approve a measure to prevent the IRS from enforcing "Obamacare". 

 

Every single House Republican voted for the repeal.  We're talking about some really slow learners!!  It’s not just that they reinforce the impression that they're not a serious governing party….. it’s that they're becoming rather pathetic.

 

Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman noted, “The madness of the GOP is the central issue of our time."

 

Congress has an enormous amount of work that needs to be done!  The House is supposed to have been working on appropriations bills, the farm bill, negotiating a budget, and hopefully, avoiding another debt-ceiling crisis in the fall. 

 

GOP lawmakers have wasted months championing culture-war bills they know can't pass and obsessing over discredited "scandals".   I guess they must think it’s fun to vote 40 times to take away Americans health care benefits rather than work on managing the country.

 

It's as if Americans elected children to control half of the legislative branch of government!!

Quoting Dakota35:

I'll have to disagree.  As all one has to do is look at the writers of the US Constitution and their association with the Revolutionary war.   Which would have directly influenced their writing of the constitution.   The taxing of the 13 colonies by England was seen to be excessive and destructive to the people. Thus the people rose up against England to form America. Now don't tell me, they totally overlooked the whole war with mother England.  I'm sure England viewed the uprising of the colonies as treason, while the colonies viewed their fight as the gaining of their independence.  America was created on the Right to bear arms.  Thus the "founding fathers" being of good intelligence thought to the future and realize that one day the US could become the  England of their time.  So they reasoned that the people would need a way to once again gain their rights and independence.



Hmmm….history does not support your premise Dak. Please study the Whiskey Rebellion. There are also other instances where the United States Federal Government put down insurrection.

 

Source Wikipedia:

 

A new U. S. federal government began operating in 1789, following the ratification of the United States Constitution. The previous government under the Articles of Confederation had been unable to levy taxes; it had borrowed money to meet expenses, accumulating $54 million in debt. The states had amassed an additional $25 million in debt.

 

Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, sought to use this debt to create a financial system that would promote American prosperity and national unity. He urged Congress to consolidate the state and national debts into a single debt that would be funded by the federal government. Congress approved these measures in June and July 1790.

 

A source of government revenue was needed to pay the respectable amount due the bond holders to whom the debt was owed. By December 1790, Hamilton believed import duties, which were the government's primary source of revenue, had been raised as high as was feasible. He therefore promoted passage of an excise tax on domestically produced distilled spirits. This was to be the first tax levied by the national government on a domestic product. Although taxes were politically unpopular, Hamilton believed the whiskey excise was a luxury tax that would be the least objectionable tax the government could levy. In this, he had the support of some social reformers. The "Whiskey Act", became law in March 1791. George Washington defined the revenue districts, appointed the revenue supervisors and inspectors, and set their pay in November 1791.

 

To make a long story short….a rebellion ensued and George Washington sent in an army to put the insurrection down. The rebellion collapsed. Ten men stood trial for treason in federal court.

 

The Legacy

 

The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval. The episode demonstrated the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was therefore viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.

 

_________________________________________

 

 

 

The 2nd Amendment was written to ensure a “well-regulated militia” for the security of our fledging country, during a time when we only had a very small army and little federal monies to fund an army in case a superior country like Britain or France tried to invade. History shows that our Founding Fathers had no interest in protecting the right of our citizens to commit treason. Well….at least Washington and Hamilton didn’t.

Last week, the House of Representatives cast its 37th vote to repeal all or part of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

 

The repeal passed the House, though it will as usual, be ignored by the Senate.  That brings the total cost of all of their failed repeal votes to roughly $55 million in taxpayer money, according to one estimate.

 

But this vote also had another interesting side effect.  It also repeals a central deficit-reduction component of the GOP’s own budget, predominately written by Rep. Paul Ryan.

 

The Ryan budget gets trillions of dollars from Obamacare by repealing all of its spending, but it keeps its spending cuts and its new tax revenues.  Repealing Affordable Care Act would, as the budget does, eliminate the new spending.  But it would also get rid of spending cuts and the new taxes — which equal almost $2 trillion over the next decade.  Absent those, Ryan’s budget is far from reaching balance.

 

It’s also a reminder that three years after the passage of Obamacare, the Republican Party still hasn’t made good on its often repeated promise to repeal-and-replace.  It’s done the “repeal” part, alright…..but it is no closer to offering a replacement than it was in 2010.  In fact, it might even be further.  A few weeks ago, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor suffered a humiliating defeat on the House floor when Republicans beat back a modest bill he offered to fund high-risk pools for patients with preexisting conditions.  Even that was too much replacement for the Republican Party!!

 

Just as their balanced budget relies on the cost savings in Obamacare, their health-care policy relies on the existence of Obamacare.  If it wasn’t there to repeal, what would they have to say?  They got nuthin’!!!

 

House Republicans desperately want to rid the world of the Affordable Care Act.  On that, their sincerity cannot be doubted.  But as both their budget and their health-care record show, they are woefully unprepared for the world…if they actually succeeded!!

 

We all know the definition of insanity.  Who knows maybe the 38th time will be the charm.  One thing is clear….the House Republicans have no interest in legislating for the good of the country.

Quoting Diana3316:

RMac,
I'm sorry about my delay in responding. The remodeling goes on! lolol

Indeed, I have heard this over and over as well, about the potential necessity of armed insurrection to fight our duly elected government. I agree with your statement. Additionally, our Founding Fathers wrote IN the Constitution the definition of treason as a specific act, namely "levying War against [the United States]". Article 3

It's unbelievable to me that any reasonable human would listen to suggestions that treason may be appropriate!!! Really??? They run around saying it's ok to be a traitor????

Quoting rmac22:

The idea that the second amendment also includes the idea of the people being able to rise up against their own government keeps being repeated, but I very much doubt that that was the intention when it was written.  The founding fathers were a pretty articulate bunch fully capable of saying exactly what they meant and it does not say that.

You said, (Lady DI) 

 

I am also confused by your statement, “it is FUTILE to argue what a "dead man meant!"  Isn’t that exactly what the entire debate over the 2nd Amendment is all about?  Opponents of gun safety laws are relentlessly supporting the notion that they KNOW what the Founding Fathers (also dead) meant when they wrote the 2nd Amendment and that it would be a violation to pass law(s) which might restrict the acquisition of any amount of weapons…any amount/type of ammo…any time….by almost any one.    

 

 

Personally DI, I think BOTH sides are IDIOTS, wasting precious time ARGUING what men they never even knew, "meant," 50, or hundreds of years ago! I prefer to FOCUS ON TODAY! What time everyone has wasted battling back and forth what one side meant!! Even f they DID refer ONE INTERPRETATION, that does not negate all that has transpired!

 

 

WHAT I SEE TODAY: 

 

 

1) Messed up "Immigrants" the FBI and Homeland Security were already following, ummm.. jeez.. (lack of better verbiage..)  DROP THE BOMB! AND STOP FOLLOWING THE GUY! (BOSTON) 

 

 

2) MILITARY refusing to release a man of his duties when he is CLEARLY being vocal regarding his "stance" on the war. Further, his counterparts are "concerned" and creating "space" between him and themselves out of uneasiness! In addition, the "Powers that Be" were aware he was emailing groups we watch. I mean, Jesus Christ! How many S/S (Signs/Symptoms) does one need?

 

 

If I am talking to someone who is under your radar, DON'T YOU THINK YOU MIGHT NEED TO PAY CLOSER ATTENTION TO MY ACTIONS?  Esp if I am TELLING YOU I disagree with what you are doing and making me do it for you, and I want out! THE MAN BEGGED TO LEAVE THE MILITARY!! I BLAME FORT HOOD ON THE MILITARY POWERS THAT BE, JUST AS I FAULT THE SANDY HOOK MASSACRE ON THAT IDIOTIC MOTHER WHO TOOK HER SON TO THE RANGE KNOWING HE WAS MENTALLY UNSTABLE! Her friends were even aware he was unstable for God sake!! And to boot, she had MANY guns and 1600 rounds of ammo in her home where he lived? WHAT A MOM!! 

 

 

 

3) Timothy McVey? The MILITARY repremanded him, and I believe relieved him of his duties? or did not allow him to "progress"-- caught him @ WHITE POWER rally with T-shirt in hand spewing filth, hatred and venom? BUT THEY JUST CUT HIM LOSE LATER? Really? 

 

 

You know DI, Mom to Mom here--- 

 

 

When my son came to live with me full time @ 17, I FORCED him to GET A JOB! I woke that boy up at 7 am to get ready to go job hunting. I checked his mileage on his car daily, gave him a notebook and told him to write the business, time he applied, manager he spoke to, etc. on the notebook and told him I would be contacting MGR. to make sure he wasn't lying. (I was the one lying, BTW on THAT issue. I'd never, well, yes I would IF I thought he was lying to me about applying! LOL)

 

 

 

I then made him come to my work after he was done, so I could check his mileage and make sure he wasn't driving to the beach or playing where he shouldn't have been playing! HE HAD TO ACCOUNT FOR EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY! 

 

 

HE HAD A JOB WITHIN 2 WEEKS AND HAS WORKED EVER SINCE! He turns 23 next week! He made over $30K at age of 21... while going to school full time! WHY did he get a job? B/C I DIDN'T DROP THE BALL!----  I "FOLLOWED THROUGH!" 

 

 

The determining FACTOR / COMMON DENOMINATOR with ALL these HEINOUS CRIMES?

 

 

The government, (and in Sandy Hook case, the mother,) DROPPED THE BALL and then DID NOT FOLLOW THROUGH! 

 

 

When my son and I moved back to my marital home, he asked if a new friend he worked w/ could come live with us. I take in strays, so I said YES! In addition, I let the "friend" and ALL my son's friends know, "THIS IS MY ROOF AND YOU ARE ALL SUBJECT TO  RANDOM DRUG TEST AT ANY GIVEN TIME. YOU DON'T COMPLY, YOU ARE OUT! YOU TELL ME BEFORE HAND YOU WON'T PASS, WE WILL DISCUSS IT AND I WILL DETERMINE WHAT AVENUE TO TAKE! YOU WILL STILL BE TESTED!"

 

 

Guess what? I DID eventually test that kid! He acted strangely one day. I heard he was almost in a fight hours before. The "HANG OUT" kids and my son were complaining... So, I went to the drug store, bought a 5 panel screening and STOOD BY THE BATHROOM DOOR WITH DOOR CRACKED AS HE PISSED SO I KNEW HE COULDN'T "CHEAT" THE TEST!! And BTW.. I let the kids know, if they passed, I would pay for the test. If they failed, they would! 

 

 

He passed-- But do you think I felt badly? NOT ONE BIT! I am FOR drug testing welfare recipients etc! That young man needed MY HOME and he needed to COMPLY with MY RULES!!

 

 

Some bozo I saw on FB the other day said, "Well what about the kids? They don't deserve this! They need to eat!" Yeah, well, if I test you regularly and you keep failing test, guess what? YOU'RE LOSING THOSE KIDS, AND ANY MONIES THAT COME BENEFIT OF THEIR EXISTENCE!! I'm taking them so far out of that environment it isn't even funny! 

 

 

The ISSUE at hand is NOT guns, fertilizer for bombs, etc.. The issue IS-- The Government and Citizens (mother in Sandy Hook case) DROPPING THE BALL AND NOT BEING HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR PART!

 

 

The ISSUE IS: We are ALLOWING mentally UNSTABLE characters to roam FREE without watching them when they have ALREADY been placed under our radar!!! 

 

 

Emotionally / Mentally UNSTABLE individuals are at HIGH RISK to harm themselves, or OTHERS. EACH of these individuals chose to harm others.. 

 

 

I DO agree we should have more stringent "backgound checks" for guns--- 

THAT'S as far as I go... 

 

 

WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND???

 

How can one side SCREAM "take away semi-automatics, they kill too much," from LAW ABIDING, TAX PAYING CITIZENS, all in the NAME OF LIFE PRESERVATION;

 

when they fight for the right to KILL 125,000 fetuses DAILY in the United States alone-- YEP! These same individuals who are fighting for the "Sandy Hook Babies" are the same ones holding signs to Preserve a woman's right to abort an unborn fetus that has a heart, eyes, nose, hands, brain, feet, intestines, spinal cord, etc.... The "FETUS" has a liver, kidneys--- YES, it "needs" the mothers womb to survive. Last I checked, a "born baby" needs a mother to survive... My second born REFUSED ALL formula, juice and food until 7 months! ALL SHE HAD WAS BREAST MILK! If I had STOPPED feeding her, I'd have been accountable for MURDER! 

 

 

And oddly, it's the side that is FOR limiting guns that kill, yet uphold abortion, who are also holding signs, to SAVE THE TURTLES  AND TREES!!  

 

 

Really? Don't drive on beach B/C you might run over turtle eggs, (UNBORN, NOT REALY "LIVING CREATURES",) ,, But do you ever get fined for interrupting them!! But, Ladies, if you want to kill YOUR EGG, GO AHEAD!  

 

 

If you ask me,,, almost everyone is "mental" and lacks "BOTH" LOGIC and COMMON SENSE!!

(and yes, they differ immensely!) 

 

 

 

WE NEED B-A-L-A-N-C-E!!!!

HI there Lovely Lady DI--- 

 

The pic you have now is my fave of all time.. You wear purple well and I love the naturalness of the wind in your hair! Hope all is going well your way! ;)

 

YOU WROTE THIS TO FISHY I THINK IT WAS? So I was asking YOU what we gave up! Sorry if I was unclear. I have had issues with internet all month! My carrier had to give me a large credit due to phone and net issues! GRRR!!!! I try and post and it gets dumped! Anyway, you said the statement below, and I wondered what you meant? I mean, I realize people were complaining about air travel taking longer, taking off shoes, etc.. BUT I FEEL IT IS WORTH IT AND PEOPLE NEED TO ADJUST THEIR SCHEDULE! 

DIANA3316 stated:

Ya know....when 911 hit, we as a country were so anxious and scared, we wrote off/gave up multiple Constitutionally protected Rights without hardly question...all in the name of citizen safety and patriotism! Compared to how many innocents are killed by guns in the wrong hands EACH year.....this 2nd Ammendment argument is really a joke. I would love to have a comparative discussion about the Patriot Act, warrantless wire taps and all the ubiquitous video surveillance.

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

HI Lady DI--

 

I didn't post about the SECOND AMENDMENT really. Funny how people take one tiny portion of what I say and THAT'S what they select to argue... I get it all the time with "Christians" who choose to hate on gays, etc... when I speak of God and Love... I posted a photo with Kennedy on it and words he spoke long ago. I can say something and 15 people can be reading and get 15 differing views, so it is FUTILE to argue what a "dead man meant!"

 

I prefer to ARGUE FACTS! MENTAL HEALTH FACTS AND FACTS REGARDING EVERY SIMILARITY TO THESE HEINOUS MURDERERS! THEY ALL HELD HATRED!! 

 

My argument is regarding how all these individuals were MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND UNDER THE GOVERNMENTS RADAR- YET STILL WERE CAPABLE OF PERPETRATING DAMAGE AGAINST INNOCENT CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES! 

 

And WHY? 

 

B/C the government DROPPED THE BALL AND SET THEM FREE! Had they been followed properly and watched, NONE of these heinous crimes would have commenced! (and in Sandy Hook incident, the Mother heself dropped the ball and actually ENCOURAGED her son's behavior!) 

 

I once wrote for a living, so I know my words are NOT that difficult to follow here.. 

 

When people start addressing MY THOUGHTS, I will respectfully respond to theirs. 

 

Thank you~ 

 

 



Hi Hope,

 

Hmmm…..I’m sorry….but I guess I am confused by your words.  I thought when you asked, “What "RIGHTS" did we give up during 9-11?”…..that you were questioning my statement regarding Rights lost due to the Patriot Act post 9/11.  I thought we were talking about the 2nd Amendment and the infringement of Rights.  I responded attempting to show you just a few of the other Rights, protected by other Amendments, which have been infringed upon in order to promote public safety.

 

I am also confused by your statement, “it is FUTILE to argue what a "dead man meant!"  Isn’t that exactly what the entire debate over the 2nd Amendment is all about?  Opponents of gun safety laws are relentlessly supporting the notion that they KNOW what the Founding Fathers (also dead) meant when they wrote the 2nd Amendment and that it would be a violation to pass law(s) which might restrict the acquisition of any amount of weapons…any amount/type of ammo…any time….by almost any one.    

 

Additionally, while it is true that it is highly likely the Founding Fathers had “NO CLUE” aircraft like we have today would be invented….it is equally likely that they could not have imagined weapons which emit a torrent of bullets…..30…50…100…. without even having to reload would be invented.  Guns have changed since 1791 when the 2nd Amendment was written….our laws should too. 

 

Now, regarding your “THOUGHTS”.  It is difficult for me to respond to everything you say….but I am assuming you are talking about your points regarding mental health.  Violence in this country and the proliferation of highly effective weapons of mass destruction is a really complex problem.  Mental health issues are important and should be part of a comprehensive gun safety plan.  But we can’t even get a vote on universal background checks….something most Americans agree should take place…including hunters and other gun advocates. 

 

To say “THE GOVERNMENT IS FAILING US!!”, because Home Grown Terrorists have acquired highly lethal weapons and murdered other citizens…seems mono focal to me.  Short of establishing a police state where U.S. citizens with potential mental problems are “followed properly and watched”….this type of approach will not effectively address the violence problem we have.  It is going to take a multi focal approach over a long period of time to undo the past decade of unbridled proliferation of guns and violent behavior.  Additionally, we have a very real problem of home grown radicalized extremists.  The mentally troubled are not the only Americans committing murders with weapons of mass destruction and it is too simplistic to just blame the government.  I believe our police agencies are trying to do the best that they can, given the scope/loop holes of the current laws and the budgets provided.  But we can do better and need to say something different than just “NO”.

Geez,It got so hot here that my snow's melting fast,good thing I'm almost packed and ready to role.

 

@ Hoping,Here's a tidbit I feel suiting.

 

        Two women injured when the LAPD riddled their truck with 102 bullets during the Christopher Dorner manhunt will be receiving $2.1 million each from the department—as well as a new truck. Emma Hernandez, 71, was shot twice in the back while her daughter Margie Carranza, was injured by broken glass. The pair were delivering newspapers when police opened fire without warning, having somehow mistaken their blue Toyota for a gray Nissan Titan the rogue ex-cop was believed to be driving.

 

 

And you want THEM to do mental health screening on US?They can't even kill a grandma and her daughter!

Hi Dak~

I do agree with your statement about politicians on both sides.  But when choices are made, the options are never all good or all bad.  When I make a decision, I visualize a scale....placing all the good on one side and all the bad on the other.  In my view, the Dems offer more good than the GOP. 

 

Additionally, I'm so glad you mentioned Martha Stewart.  Her crime?  She avoided a loss on her stocks of approximatedly $46,000....a mere pittance....chickenfeed....compared to the crimes of the Wall Street and the Corporate guys.  Yet not a single one of them have been prosecuted for nearly ANYTHING....including crashing the entire economy!!!  Hmmmm.....wonder why.  Was it because she was getting too big for her britches and the insiders wanted to teach all outsiders (women) a lesson?  Stay out....this is our playground!  lol


I wrote a long response, but AOL locked before I could post.  I hate AOL.  All I will say now is that Martha Stewart's conviction just proves how hypocritical our politicians really are.  Do as I say, not as I do...that is their moto.

 

Don't blame WallStreet, blame the politicians/lawmakers that make the rules for WallStreet.  Blame the Fed for pumping 83 Billion into our economy, creating a bubble like never before.  No use in getting into it, as my warning will go unheeded.

Quoting Dakota35:

Here you go...I'll make a statement that everyone can agree with;  Politicians are Fk'ers on both sides.  They keep the American people in debate over issues like this, while they rob them blind.  Want proof?, just look at the recent drop in gold.  Just happened the FOMC leaked to GS, Congress, and others in the loop, to liquidate their gold position.  Exact words “We recommend initiating a short COMEX gold position...” Insider trading without even a cover up.  And they send Martha Stewart to prison, while they engage in the same without recourse.  Now you see why they are worried about gun control.  They worry that they'll screw the wrong crazy and he'll come after them.  They don't care about the American people, we are puppets on a string to most of them.  Their weapons are manipulation and brainwashing.  Wonder which among us have fallen victim to their weapons.

While we're talking about constitutionally protected 'Rights'.....how about the right to vote???  Are voter ID cards an effective tool in the prevention of voter fraud?  Isn't that a type of background check?  If voter ID cards help to prevent fraud, then it stands to reason that comprehensive background checks in order to purchase a gun would help to prevent some unlawful gun purchases.

 

Interestingly, I've never heard of anyone getting killed by someone casting a vote....yet we got voter ID laws passed in just a couple of weeks.
