I'd just like to know how 90% corporate tax is going to help when 39.6% isn't helping?

Why does Bernie want to double down on stupid?

Oh yeah, economic illiteracy.

But he will continue to make more and more gun related laws and regulations.


Will he? That doesn't seem to be a major part of his platform.

On the subject of guns though:

Bernie believes that gun control is largely a state issue because attitudes and actions with regards to firearms differ greatly between rural and urban communities. Nevertheless, Bernie believes there are situations where the federal government should intervene. He voted in favor of requiring background checks to prevent firearms from getting into the hands of felons and the mentally ill, passing a federal ban on assault weapons, and closing loopholes which allows private sellers at gun shows and on the internet to sell to individuals without background checks.

Can you find where he says that here? I can't. I do see lots of areas where he's intending on closing loopholes.

In fact. I don't see that 90% figure anywhere in his platform. Where'd you get that?

He is calling for a ban on all firearms that are not hunting rifles... and stated any firearm that can hurt someone should not be sold in the U.S... What are firearms supposed to do? give a hug to criminals?...

You want to defend yourself? vote for Barney Sanders and hug criminals who try to hurt your family or yourself... It's in the name of "progress" after all...

He is not.

You have a history of using dishonest debate tactics on this site, so again no surprise to me that you would twist one's words around to fulfil your agenda.

Besides, too many Americans own firearms, myself included for anyone to ban 'non-hunting rifiles.'

Keep those strawman arguments going, some how some actually believe the BS you write.

When I was talking about the WPA. Tpeople worked for the WPA and that was their only job. Basically if you went on welfare at the time you did work for the WPA and got your benefits from the government. If you already had a job you could not work for the WPA as a "worker". They did have normal people that where hired as engineer and such.

I am a veteran so i get VA health care for the past thirty years. I also get Medicare. I get great care from the VA and can be seen, diagnosed and prescribed within a hour or hour and a half. Of course there are dip #s like you that will insist my VA care is terrible yet most of the doctors at VA are well known doctors from the local area. Last year I had my Gall Bladder removed. It was done as a outpatient basis with no complications. It cost me zero. I've had health plans in the private sector as well. Usually specialists are worthy but other than that there is very little in comparison.

The GOP has denied health care to the public since Truman. It's disgusting to see friends and family who do not have health care. Then i get on the web and some obnoxious worthless little # wants to compare apples with oranges. Like i said earlier, the post office has done a magnificent job for hundreds of years. Face it son...you are under the influence of FOX News Kool-Aid. You NEOCON types will pass like a fart through a camel's ass with little positive benefit in you're wake. We defeated NAZI fascists back in the day and we can do so today as well. Sanctimonious neocon types come and go and when confronted with "real" and knowledgeable people who refuse their mind-traps and they tend to morph into the woodwork. Watching these freaks battling in the GOP debates is more than amusing...lol. They are just a little bit more obnoxious as their Democrat counter-parts. Regardless election years produces some of the worst sociopaths money can buy for our entertainment. It's a riot!...lol.

But this is a question you should ask yourself...How is it that (according to the GOP and FOX News) a black, socialists, Muslim, commie, illegal alien, and white people hating Chicago thug get elected twice into the Oval Office? Especially with all the wisdom the conservatives of the GOP offer...why is that?...lol. Now that you wasted more time here than you wished, you think about that as you watch O'reilly and Hannity...lol.

You get great care from the VA???? You are full of s&^t plain and simple.

I deal with the VA monthly.

The USPS is has great service? Again, about as full of S*&t as it gets.

Take your "I heart Govt" crap and pitch it somewhere else, where truth is ignored.

90% corporate tax?

Is that a mistake or a joke?

"assault" weapons is a coined term that has no real definition.

So, what makes any weapon an "assault" weapon?
Is it the Thing that goes on in front? A laser? The ability to shoot a 30 clip magazine?

No, it is not what he is proposing.

And no, it's not a mistake or a joke - it is a Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, FOX news, Kool-Aid drinking, hysterical lie. Pure propaganda.

Ridiculous, and (in my opinion), offensive to thinking people.

Oh, and by the way: just today on Morning Edition on NPR (National Public Radio; serious intellectual discussion of current events) there was a former Goldman-Sachs exec who believes that the best thing to do is to break up the big banks....

"Economic Illiteracy" and "Stupid" says Teakiastiketusko....
ridiculous and asinine name-calling and disinformation.

That's what they do....the rabid right.

I understand what it is.
My husband is a veteran, and he explained it to me; that it is any 'modified' weapon.
I understand the nitpicky thing. Fair enough.

Yet, my friend's buddy went and bought a machine gun at Cabela's over the weekend.
A machine gun? WTH???
oh well, whatever makes you guys feel safer and more macho, I guess. That's what you need. Like a muscle-car or a souped-up Harley.

Nevertheless - who do you need to assault? (And by the way, we have perhaps a dozen guns here....)

Your husband is wrong. SOOOOO wrong it hurts to hear that he is a Veteran.
Where did he pickup such insight as to what defines an assault weapon?


Cabelas sells NFA items?? Last time I checked, they don't. You really need to get your crap straight.

Okay - you are acting like a little kid.
His answer: that is how the government, and the law defined it......

As far as my friend's buddy, Mr Wigs says our friend was mistaken about it being a 'machine gun'. What the buddy did was buy a semi-auto rifle. Mr Wigs says the size of the mag capacity, or a modified handgrip, or a bayonette, all of those are included in this 'not properly defined' definition.

I understand all about just putting a sight and synthetic stock with a hand-grip, or folding, or bipod, or a flash suppressor - even on our little Ruger 22 - that makes it an "assault weapon."

ANYWAY - he was Army, an expert, sharp-shooter, and everything else they qualify....
and your experience is...what????

Marines? (that would figure)

Any weapon, firearm or not, can be used to assault.
A stock or bayonet makes it no more assaulty then any other thing.

The Govt, Progressives, have given us the "assault" term.

From someone that doesn't even know the difference between a semi-auto firearm and a machine gun, and where you can purchase one, the laws regarding it, you sure do seem to think you are qualified to speak about it.

A sharp shooter you say. You mean, anyone in the military that gets a certain score on qualifications day?? You don't say.

So, what did he qualify with?

Marines?? Nope.


As for qualifications, Manufacturing FFL holder with SOT. Military and LE.

Dude, don't act like an asshole.

Subcal-adapter for M-16, M-16, M-203, M-60, M-249 (?), M-9, M-1911, M-7282, AT4, Mark 19.
That's the stuff he qualified with.


Anyway - "Military and LE" is an undefined position or branch or title.

Marines?
Navy?
Army?
Air Force?

WHAT BRANCH, and how far did you get???????? You a Sheriff, or deputy, or desk clerk, or DEA agent, or state trooper, or meter maid, or private security.....with police commission, or in a neighborhood grocery?
ANYONE with basic training can get an "LE" job.
Not Impressed.

How long were you in? Where did you serve? Honorable discharge? Rank?

His was E-5, Army. You???
"E" grade?

Not Marines? You're sure?
