you're entitled to your opinion....

I think it has nothing to do with how much money a person has...it has to do with their morals. People like me who value life are more less likely to take another person's life than someone who can care less about life.

BTW, America's "poor" get food stamps....and own cell phones, get free or reduced housing, utilities, free or reduced medical care, dental care, and most of them have cars to drive.......and amazingly spend more time shooting each other than they do those you try to demonize for having more.

Exactly! But you're suppose to "hate" your boss because he's making his money off the backs of his $50,000 a year employees.....but people never seem to think that -

to the person who only earns say $20,000 a year, a person making $50,000 a year is "rich"

to the person who makes $50,000 a year, the guy making $80-100,000 is "rich"

to the person who makes $1,000,000 a year, the guy making $2,000,000 is "rich"

Disparity means the size of the chasm between rich and poor. America's is the worst in the industrialized world.

This kid's a joke. I don't believe a damn thing he says. I think he makes up 99% of his claimed life experiences. Desperately searching for attention. Poor little fella.

Care to explain this?

California had the highest number of gun murders in 2011 - 1,790, which is 68% of all murders that year and equivalent to 3.25 per 100,000 people in the state.

The 10 most dangerous cities in the US are as follows -

1] Detroit, MI (top 10 toughest gun laws by city)
2] St. Louis, MO
3] Oakland, CA (top 10 toughest gun laws by state)
4] Memphis, TN
5] Birmingham, AL
6] Atlanta, GA (top 10 of toughest gun laws by city...ironically Kennesaw, just outside Atlanta requires citizens to own guns and has very little violent crime)
7] Baltimore, MD (top 10 toughest gun laws by state)
8] Stockton, CA (top 10 toughest gun laws by state)
9] Cleveland, OH (top 10 toughest gun laws)
10] Buffalo, NY (top 5 toughest gun laws by state)



Here are the 15 cities in the United States that reported the most murders and non-negligent homicides in 2011

New York 515 (2nd toughest gun laws of US cities)
Chicago 431 (has toughest gun laws of ANY city in US)
Detroit 344 (in the top 10 of toughest gun laws of US cities)
Philadelphia 324 (top 10 of toughest gun laws of US cities and just 7 shy of Dallas and Houston combined!)
Los Angeles 297 (3rd toughest gun laws of US cities)
New Orleans 200
Houston 198
Baltimore 196 (top 10 toughest gun laws by state)
Dallas 133 (top 10 toughest gun laws by city)
Memphis 117
Phoenix 116
St. Louis 113
Washington D.C. 108
Kansas City, Mo. 108
Oakland 104 (in top 10 of toughest gun laws of US cities)

States with toughest gun laws

1-Pennsylvania
2-Illinois
3-Hawaii
4-Rhode Island
5-New York
6-Maryland
7-Connecticut
8-Massachusetts
9-New Jersey
10-California

Crazies on both sides to be sure but most are on the right.


That Sheriff is the minority of POLICE........they do not want a felon with an semi or automatic weapon with 30-100 round clips/drums firing at them.

Bet this retarded **** of a Sheriff would change his mind if they were aimed at him.

Waiting a little extra time to fill out a backgroung check or have to change out your ammo clip a few extra times is a real PIA.............

COMPARED TO SOMEONE'S LIFE ...YOUR MINOR INCONVENIENCE IS
JUST TO MUCH TO BEAR.............POOR POOR YOU

(AS HAS BEEN PROVEN AT MANY MASS SHOOTINGS BY MULTIPLE WACKJOBS BEING TAKEN DOWN DURING A CLIP CHANGE )


You guys need to at least acknowledge recent history...........

Today's job news confirms what I have been saying for 2 years. The real unemployment number is between 12-15% when you count the people that have quit looking for a job.

Keep supporting him though. History will show that his policies were failures. I just fear we won't ever be able to dig out of the hole we are creating with the debt where it is.

So One ass backwards network like Fox is telling the truth and the five others you mentioned are lieing to us ?

Sounds like all you saying every poll showing Romney losing was a liberal biased poll...............

Whatever as far as the economy we are damn lucky **** isn't worse............the same dumbasses repubs who spent us into oblivion and with dumbass tax breaks for rich people and two wars are the ones holding up progress right now.

EVERY SINGLE TIME THERE HAS BEEN A RECESSION THE GOVERNMENT HAS HAD TO HELP THE ECONOMY BACK ON TRACK BUT THIS TIME THE REPUBLICANS WHO BROKE THE COUNTRY WON'T ALLOW US TO SPEND MONEY AND CREATE JOBS THAT WE NEED TO SPUR THE ECONOMY BACK.............

ARGUE ALL YOU WANT THIS IS HOW IT HAS BEEN DONE AFTER EVERY SINGLE RECESSION IN THE PAST............

You want things fixed call your republican rep.................

I think not too many conservatived ideas have been correct lately....at least not to the majority of us...................

Well I would rather believe in the power of the people to actually get politicians to do what 90% of Americans want as far as background checks go...............some hear don't believe polls of any kind just cause they don't agree with them like when Romney was losing before the election.

Its what the people want and its nots quaint........its whats right.

Better to believe in the system as it is designed than believe the government is gonna knock on your door and take your guns which is a Fox news type of rant...............which one makes more sense to 90% of us...................?

I agree it is very difficult to to admit our government has been hijacked by rouge global forces. But check your history it wouldn't be the first time a government was corrupted.

Global forces.......hope your joking around or smoking something ?

The only thing between the 90% of us wanting common sense gun control laws and something happening is the minority lobbyist NRA.

Global forces..........no.........DOMESTIC lobbyists convincing government to do whats best for the minority of us is the problem..............

Zimbabwe and the Weimar Republic disagree.

I don't want any part of the standard of living that your "wealth distribution" provides. Hasn't the unprecedented liberty and prosperity of the United States over the last 240 years taught you anything?

I think it's disgusting actually. I don't think officers while on duty showcasing non-partisan views is good for anybody. How would you like it if a liberal sheriff pulled your over because he saw a Republican bumper sticker on your car and gave you the works no matter how your driving was. And vice versa (Republican cop giving a Dem the business). It's not a good thing. If they want to be one way or the other on their own time that is fine. While on duty, be a cop, not a politician. The badge doesn't belong to Republicans or Democrats. To protect and serve means to protect and serve the people, not a political view or agenda.

He is serving the people by helping to uphold our 2nd amendment rights against executive and legislative over-reach.

That's pretty much the whole point of the video. I would hope all elected officials held the same view. Instead, many of them are hell-bent on destroying the U.S. constitution.

How much money is printed impacts distribution. For example, when your on a fixed income and your money can't buy what it did yesterday, you have been made poorer in comparison to someone who will get a raise with inflation. A guy who retired after serving 30 years in the military loses money compared to a guy who just owns a bunch of stock that increases its dividend with with inflation.
