Eh, no he didn't. Got your attention though. But Obama has the power to do it! Doesn't he? Come on! If he can let the NSA, CIA, FBI, and the Justice Department spy and control us, why wouldn't he want to go further? Seriously, Nixon almost got impeached and resigned for lesser crimes. It's time for Obama to go. He shows complete disregard for the Consitution, and probably uses it as his personal ass wipe! The past 60 years of laws and political BS needs to be sorted and decimated and the entire congress wiped clean and re-voted on after a new voting system is created, no more two-party system. Plus new Presidential elections. What's your opinion?
P.S. If I don't respond to anything, assume the Black Helicopters came to get me. I'm already on their list.
Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America voted on a resolution to allow openly gay boys to join the scouts, finally ending a decade long battle between liberal groups and religious organizations via the scouts. It was a close vote, with 60% voting yes. Many troops and scouting organizations are against the resolution. They did not change their policy on adult leaders though. Do you agree with the resolution, making the Boy Scouts more accepting, or not due to the Scouts christian ties and violation of the scouts oath of being "morally straight"?
I am an Eagle Scout, and I loved scouting. I just don't know what to make of this though.
Benghazi, the IRS vs. the Tea Party, and Associated Press phone taps. Jeez! What's next?!
With all of the scandals going on in the government, and public trust at an all time low, Obama is starting to look a lot like Nixon. But like Nixon, should Obama be impeached? All of this happened under his watch, which makes a rough start for his second term. Or, do you think he can get it together and fix it to improve his image again?
In 1863 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.
In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing 6 others.
In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people in a school.
One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
Okay, here is the deal. I'm sick and tired of people saying that guns are evil, scary, not needed, bla bla bla. And that they kill people, so they should be banned, and screw the Constitution. Well, why should they be banned when they save more people than kill? According to recent surveys, 4-6% of Americans say they have used a gun in self-defense in the past five years. That is about 18,000,000 people, 3,600,000 per year (Hoover Insitution). The annual death rate by gun use is 11,700. So in the past five years, 58,500 have died (CDC)! That is a huge gap between the two numbers. Tell me, why do you still want to ban guns when they save more people?! They save more people, don't they?
The Falklands is conducting a vote for the local people whether to stay British. Argentina and Britain have fought over these islands, and even gone to war over them. Do you believe that they are and should be British? Or should they be Argentinian, even with the islanders viewing themselves as being British? Personally, I think they are British. Have been and always will be.
No, not the Spartan 300. I just hit 300 points! Yay! Anyway, it's pretty cool for me. But let me introduce a serious debate. Who will be the next Republican Nominee In 2016? I'm curious on y'all's opinion.
I made this a while ago, but I'm doing it again because a lot has change since last time. So same question, should Scotland become its own country and break up the United Kingdom? I'm really torn on this issue, since I am of a long and old root of Scottish ancestry.
What is your favorite instrument? It can be one you play, like to listen to, or is just epic! It's hard for me to decide since I play 6 of them: Highland Bagpipe, Shuttle Pipes, Ukulele, Hammered Dulcimer, Mountain Dulcimer, and Bóhdran. My goal in life is to learn as many as possible. So, what is your favorite? I like ones I've never heard of before.
Seriously. Gun control through executive order? What the frick Obama. Even the states are disagreeing with him. And yet he still wants to do this. Wyoming and Texas are already saying enforcing his laws in their state will be crime. To enforce his laws, he is going to need to invade both Texas and Wyoming and probably more. What do you think will happen? Do you think the states have this kind of authority? Do you think the president has this kind of authority? I'm curious about everyone's thoughts. This isn't a debate on gun control, but on the legitimacy of this situation.
I just got done watching a program on searching for the Yeti in Nepal, and I'm questioning, "Do they really exsist?" My dad believes it, and he wonders when the hunting season is for them! I'm just not sure they do exsist.
Do you think that the United States is heading in the right direction? Policy, politically, or socially wise? If so, give some examples and what we should do to keep going. If not, give some examples and what can be done to reverse direction. It can be on religion, politics, economics, or, especially now, guns, or anything else. I would prefer Americans only, but I know there are many people from different countries here. For non-Americans, what is your perspective from the outside?
Recently, the Scottish National Party (SNP) has promised to hold a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom for Scotland. Since they hold the majority, they can and are negotiating a vote. Do you think that Scotland should become its own country? Or should the United Kingdom stay status quo? I would love to hear from some Scottish citizens if they are out there. I would really appreciate your opinion! And how do you English/Irish/Scot-Irish/Welsh citizens feel about it? Americans are welcome too! I am an American with heavy Scottish ancestory, and I'm torn on this issue. Feedback is greatly appreciated.
Finally! Someone understands! We don't need to concentrate on guns, but on the specific areas of crime. Please watch this video. It really helped me understand the situation.
