– think 30,000 gun deaths per year is not a problem worth trying to solve, no matter what the solution is.
– think they are in a militia by virtue of having a gun, regardless of what militia meant at the time of the bill of rights
– use NRA propaganda to justify their idiocy, without thought.
– think any attempts to solve the problem of gun deaths is an attempt to take away their guns
– equate guns with freedom, while ignoring the freedom taken from the victims of gun violence
– pretend all gun suicides would happen with or without easy access to guns (@19,000 gun suicides per year)
– think that any method to reduce gun thefts harms their “freedom”
– think smart guns are bad, hurts their “freedom”
– parrot a discredited study by lott. yay stupidity
– think that more guns = less gun violence, ignoring all statistics showing the exact opposite.
– think that one of the 3 commas in the 2nd amendment is a magic comma, so they can ignore the first half of the 2nd amendment.
– many gun nuts consider themselves “pro-life”, while ignoring the thousands of gun victims every year, who have life taken from them.
– many are so dumb, they think the fascist koch brothers are on their “team”.
In short, gun nuts are extremely mentally challenged – dumber than your standard conservative idiot that votes against himself based on right wing lies; which is already dumb as fuck.
take a moment to reflect on all the good done by the right wing dominated supreme court (who is SUPPOSED to be impartial).
– selected our previous president, george bush – who gave us a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit and an economy losing nearly a million jobs per month when he left office.
– citizens united, allowing corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money in our elections. This allows even foreign governments and corporations to anonymously fund the candidate of their choice by way of superpacs.
– and now these same jackasses have the ability to fuck the country again with their decision on health reform.
Has any small group of nutjobs ever held such sway over the country in so short a time?
Even saint reagan didn’t do this much damage to the USA.
Or is it only ok because its corporations who are taxing us?
“Therefore, if todayâ€™s oil markets were based on supply and demand fundamentals, drivers would be paying about a dollar-and-a-half less per gallon, or around $20 less each time they fill up their gas tanks.”
In other words speculators (hedge funds, banks, oil producers like the Kochs) get a buck fifty for every gallon you purchase.
If you drive 10,000 miles at 25 mpg, that equals 400 gallons.
400 x $1.50 = $600
25,000 miles per year at 25 mpg?
If you have an older car or a truck?
It gets ugly quick.
at 15 mpg, assuming you only drive 10,000 miles = $1,000
Again – you did not elect the speculators.
Your speculator money is not going to a noble cause.
Instead we have propagandists for those same speculators trying to blame the president for high gas prices.
“The BGOV Barometer shows that, over the five decades since John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, $1,000 invested in a hypothetical fund that tracks the Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 Index (SPX) only when Democrats are in the White House would have been worth $10,920 at the close of trading yesterday.
Thatâ€™s more than nine times the dollar return an investor would have realized from following a similar strategy during Republican administrations. A $1,000 stake invested in a fund that followed the S&P 500 under Republican presidents, starting with Richard Nixon, would have grown to $2,087 on the day George W. Bush left office.”
Obama’s TOTAL spending is 1.4 trillion (more than half of that from the stimulus).
That is 6% of our debt.
Jansing here, the worthless biatch, lets grover claim Obama’s spent 6 trillion.
Repeating the VERY COMMON conservative “trick” of blaming Obama for republican spending.
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
