I was just reading this garbage, and I could not let it pass by without bringing it up here for a little conversation. Apparently Obama thinks we are not divided as the protests, and the recent shootings in Dallas suggest.. I am like this guy is delusional. He then went on being the usual Obama pushing object violence. and pulling out figures out of his what ever. That the reason we don't have tougher gun control laws is because of a minority of folks!



Warsaw, Poland (CNN)Frankly acknowledging a "tough week" in the United States after anxious days of shootings and racial tensions, President Barack Obama said Saturday that he did not believe the United States was "as divided as some have suggested."


Obama says we don't really hate each other!

And I can NOT let this comment go by either.



He said the motives of the killer in Dallas were "very hard to untangle" but called the shooter "demented" and downplayed the potential political motivations he may have carried. The shooter allegedly voiced a desire to "kill white people" ahead of the attack, authorities have said.


Yes people Obama actually said this.



And he made another call for tighter restrictions on guns, saying if Americans are concerned about violence against police officers, "you can't set aside the gun issue and pretend that that's irrelevant."


And the last one relevant to the topic discussion.



When it comes to the issue of gun safety, there is polarization between a very intense minority, and a majority of Americans who actually think that we could be doing better when it comes to gun safety."


Hear that people ?

A very intense 'minority' and the 'majority' that backs what Obama has repeatedly,ENDLESSLY tried to do for the last eight years, and the MAJORITY has shot him down over 100 times in congress.

But,but,but, but the majority wants tougher blah,blah,blah.

Lock and load people, and no going around half cocked, and spraying, and praying like Obama.

What do the totally enlightened people of ATS say ?

Crazy like a fox or Mad as a hatter ?

Is this a call to arms? Are you suggesting people arm themselves and take some sort of action?

LoL

So in one breath he says we aren't divided, then in the next, he flat out says the opposite.

This guy. ...

He meant the country wasn't as divided as he'd like it to be.
The man is a very unfunny joke.

Well Obama isn't wrong. We are not as divided as the OP thinks we are currently. Both 'Sides" have very vocal people that try to speak for everyone.

Good try at deflecting this to guns though. People have been buying more guns because they bought into the NRA/Right-Wing BS that says Obama is trying to take all the guns away. BTW why is after a tragedy involving guns the wrong time to talk about how our gun laws don't do anything as the are currently written? As a gun owner and a Veteran we need better laws, policies and mental health treatment then we currently have now. All you huff and puff about guns really isn't helping you make your case about us being less divided then you think we are.

You mean that guy in Poland.

Got it you hate Obama and everything he says/does. Hell you cant even type his name but instead type "You mean that guy in Poland."

WE are not as divided as you want us to be. The president is right. With the 24h news cycle anything that brings ratings gets covered and vocal minorities on both sides do this well.

Almost half of Americans — 49 percent — say racism is a “big problem” in society today, according to a poll conducted by CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That’s a greater percentage than in 2011 — 28 percent — or in 1995, when 41 percent said racism was a “big problem.”


I swear he's saying this dumb stuff intentionally.

We're not, the country I mean as a whole.
Your vocal minority group does not represent the majority of America, as much as you'd like to think that, it's just not true.
www.gallup.com...

Read through, "most" of America want stricter gun laws & "most" of America does not want to see a ban.
You see "most" of America is able to reasonably understand that while we have Second Amendment Rights, those same rights must be limited to ensure the common good.
Much the same way other Rights are not unlimited.

Buck up! no one is coming for your guns & lets be honest if they did there's not a damn thing you could do about it.
Well outside of some silly Rambo fantasy.
So stop the sensationalism already.

I see someone ignoring that over 100 million firearms sold.

That poll is straight up MISINFORMATION.

He is trying to fix the mess he has created with his encouragement of what he claims is not happening, he is the one that have done the racial divisions with his dumb and inappropriate comments while the police was involved in violent acts and still under investigation.

Yes Mr. Obama is the one that had created the culmination of the attacks on Police officers in Dallas.

Lalaaaa indeed.

IF the majority of the 'people' supported that crap.

There would simply not be over 100 million firearms sold.

SOMEONE is lying.

Okay, if this pic was ever appropriate, it's in retort to this thread.

Obama see's through these:



So he's not seeing this:



The social issues are a rumbling cesspool, a giant zit if you will. And that zit is popping as we speak. The fallout is nasty stuff.

But the question is; how will the 3 letter types interpret it, metaphorically or threatening.

Discretion is the better part of valor....just sayin

In market advertising? This is whats known as no such thing as bad press.

In a country thats bi-polar er I mean bi-partisan it's hmm what to buy and sell stock in... well Johnny, when one side is in power and hates something check the numbers and what they are against... now the timing of the buy and sell rally is very important and of course Bills, Measures, trends etc. can be cause for a buying frenzy... of course you want to catch the wave right before it begins to crest or is low and tube it as far as one can and bail out before the market or attention closes for maximum gains.. be sure to also see who plans any trips to back halls and lobbies to really cinch in leads.

It's a bi-partisan waffle iron theyre gonna take our guns sells more of them... shake hands and break, see ya next time someone pulls the trigger wink wink.

Of course I'm not saying thats what is actually occuring with any specific people but thats what is actually occuring with quite a few people... its why so many politico try to hide their stocks or bail them our shuffle them to a family member right before elections.
