Re: Been Thinking

You`d be surprised how similar that Putin and Obama really are. Obama would go much further if there wasn`t a US Constitution and a House of Representatives to slow him down, but he`s doing his damnest to circumvent both with executive orders and liberal/trojan horse sleeper cells within the SCOTUS.  But yeah, if Putin had to govern under the constraints of a democratic-republic like the US, he might be a pretty damned good guy.

 

As to your question on "how expanded background checks would step on anyone`s gun rights?" ...well it`s the camel`s nose in the tent, what do you mean exactly by "expanded background checks"?     Could a state that`s hostile towards gunowners say "if you ever visited a psychiatrist you are not fit to own a gun"    "if you ever were prescribed Xanax, you are not fit to own a gun"  "if you are a veteran, you are not fit to own a gun because of risk of PTSS"  "if there`s anyone under 18 living in your house, you are not fit to own a gun because of the unpredictable nature of children".        See, you have to tell us what you mean by "expanded background checks", it`s pretty vague and ambiguous.

 

There can be unintended consequences, perhaps someone that needed mental healthcare wouldn`t seek it, for fear of losing his gun rights which would compound the problem.

I'd say that is one pubby leader that needs to retire to the land where there is no jewish faith.

Re: Been Thinking

As to the question of whether our military would fire on civilians:  I imagine that many here would welcome the military firing on certain classes of folks in the right circumstances, say, minorities rioting or disorder that was regarded as left wing.

 

The question probably comes up in regards to activities that the folks might imagine themselves joining in on.

 

As far as the military firing on RW organized rebellion, sure, I suppose in theory. But that's not what the right wing is currently about- it's about kicking down and sucking up and a desire to regain a sense of one's own authority.

 

In Germany it was about the good volk, the churches, the industrialists (for expediency's sake) who decided that the threat from the communists,socialists (which the majority of jews were, btw) and general moral decline to their cherished values and place in society was so grave that something had to be done.

 

Probably very few could have imagined where it was all leading. But once down the rabbit hole, very few of the surviving participants were able to really admit to their errant thinking. It was just something that unfortunately turned out really badly for them.

Most all Americans favor the use of force, death, imprisonment on those that disagree with them.  Fail to play as long with their social systems and find out.   If you favor non voluntary socialism (or fascism for that matter) then you favor killing Americans that politically disagree with you, don't kid yourself about your humanity.

Re: Been Thinking

When you`re an oppressed people living in a occupied land, it`s well advised that you answer all questions in a manner that does not arouse hostility from your overlings.  One might be inclined to lie and say "no guns here, uh-uh no."  or perhaps if us peons extend the middle finger with grease under the nail and say "Yup alotta guns and they`re always loaded."  or leave it blank and say "none of your business".    Of course one day if you refuse to answer all questions completely they may pull 0bamacare bennefits and put you on the rack, charge you with heresy, like they did  Giordano Bruno  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno

Re: Been Thinking

 

You have to ask ?

 

It starts with dehumanizing " the others "

gays are dirty

jews are greedy drity mongrels

blacks are lazy part human souless creatures.

Almost every country has their targets.

 

 

Look on all the farmer chat sights. They DEhumanize anyone and everyone who dont look like them, have sex like them or  pray like them. They would line up behind a HItler crossed with a Putin faster than you could cash a subsidy check.

 

If it can happen there, it can happen here.

 

If it happened once, it can happen twice.

We are now ruled by leaders who think the biggest threat we face is man made global warming. More la la land.
