Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

You want me to believe that the NRA wants convicted stalkers to have guns? I don't think so.

Because good guys with guns never, EVER make a mistake and accidentally kill innocent people.

Right?

RIGHT??

"Police across the country are under assault. They are our first line of defense."

*rolls eyes*

The Second Amendment is your first line of defense. Take some responsibility for yourself. The police aren't there to protect you. That's YOUR duty. The police are there to blast your pets and then take a report.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

So Ken your solution for bad guys with guns is not to try to have fewer bad guys with guns but to have more good guys with guns? Let's have a big ol' shoot out at the OK corral and hope that some of the good guys are among those left standing. Awesome. With attitudes like yours, no wonder guns kill 10 times per capita the number of people in the US compared to Canada.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

Right now the biggest problem is rogue cops stalking young black men. I agree that the cops should be disarmed, in light of their having killed over 600 people in the last year nation wide. They should only be allowed to use weapons for defense after a proven attack, not because they are afraid of people who aren't white. I am disappointed that the Tucson Weakly is so into fads and so loose with the facts.

Re: “Update: McSally Wins Recount, Barber gives statement

Rick - Yes, I would have been surprised to NOT see Barber's name supporting the Cromnibus bill with the giveaways to Citibank and the land to a foreign mine co., he's made some really horrible votes in Congress. It's why he's the only Democrat I didn't vote for, I voted write-in "Someone Better". While I'm not looking forward to a Congresswoman McSally, I'm not shedding any tears over her 167 vote win.

CD02 is a very competitive district - after 2 easy wins Gabby almost lost to the likes of Jesse Kelly in 2010, and has been very closes races since. McSally shouldn't get too comfortable in her new DC digs, and hopefully we get a real Democratic nominee in 2016.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

Martha, we have enough anti-gun laws already. The gun isn't a bad thing. The bad people are the bad thing. The more good guys carrying guns every day, the safer everyone is. Please remember this when the gun-grabbers want to spread their loony ideas. Also remember, our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. More guns everywhere means a safer place. We need to keep the right to self-protection and in a world that is more dangerous every day, (see Muslim extremism for example), don't add to the insanity of disarming the public and turning us all into victims. It's against the Constitution, anyway.

Sorry Mark. You might wait to push your "defenseless" idea until after the threatened riots.

Police across the country are under assault. They are our first line of defense.
So...if they are, we are.

Why not give it a go in Australia?

Re: “Update: McSally Wins Recount, Barber gives statement

One of the last votes, if not the last vote, Barber cast was in favor of the budget deal (Cromnibus). In doing so, when he had a chance to stand as a true progressive, he voted yes on a bill that benefited the same Wall Street slime who nearly bankrupted the nation, further damaged the EPA, gave Navajo land to yet another foreign mining corporation and sold elected officials to the highest bidders. Even Jeff Flake voted against this legislative nightmare.

Nice work Ron.

The new Congress and its members will be sworn in on January 6, 2015.

But you are correct. Right now we have NO representation in Washington.

Don't lead him on. False hopes can be devastating.

Just take a look at Hillary.

Well, Davey, your resume might have been considered if your cover letter didn't start out; "Dear Dumb Doug" ;-}

Re: “Who Just Said "The Market Mechanism Just Doesn't Work" In Education?

Well, David a topic on which you and I remain in lock step in opposition. I'll say it here again that charter schools have become a place where it's more about the money than the education; I have seen too many kids come out of the program less prepared than their counterparts in traditional schools. But, the way for traditional schools to eliminate this shanker is a better prophylaxis, and I don't mean just more money.
Yeah, you might be subject to criticism for the opening paragraph but that is because this is your normal routine, negativism. It's raining outside right now but on the positive side I happen to know it will be a nicer day later on.
