You know with a name that cheesy it's a front, like the patriot act.

Everyone is abusing 501c.

everyone.

that's why we need real fucking election finance reform that the supreme court can't overturn.

that's why we need a constitutional amendment stating that unlimited anonymous cash is not free political speech.

and republicans should agree with that because that means democrats couldn't do it with unions or wealthy donors either.

/but they wont

that's why the ones who still bother to vote can be easily swayed. maybe it's a little rush on the way to work, maybe it's a little fox news, hannity or o'reily at night. most people can't be bothered to look shit up and find out they are being lied to. the same goes for some on the left. they take what they can get from their preferred "news" source and go from there.

Huxley, , !

One of the worst things is what you mentioned - discussing it turns people off. Apparently an unheated exchange of logic is too much for most. They get all emotional and shit. Again it's like picking sport teams.

You said what about the chargers???

So no thanks.


Because clearly voting for the lesser of two evils has clearly worked wonders. If you lean to the right...vote for Ron Paul or Gary Johnson. If you lean to the left...vote for Jill Stein or Rocky Anderson. Any one other than Obamney & Rombama! We have more choices when it comes to toothpaste than who gets into office.

There is nothing inaccurate or biased about it.

just incomplete. if obama wins and nominates 3 liberals to the bench, who if confirmed start taking apart the 2nd amendment.

Be sure and hand all your guns in with a smile and a "thank you" when that day comes......

Nah. Who am I kidding? Most people will just whimper all the way to and from the police station. While you're there, see about the new concealed carry permit for your vegetable peeler! Now, now! Knives aren't allowed, and I don't miss twice (concentration) campers!

Really makes you think. Without guns what's to stop us from becoming a exploitative, parasitic, militaristic shithole where choice is meaningless in the face of the ruling super structure.? Stop Obongos war on our rights.
