But there is a consensus about it. A majority of Americans favor common-sense gun regulation (NOT BANNING). The only people who claim there is no consensus are the people who disagree with the majority. A prime example is the literal genesis believers and evolution deniers. These things are controversies only in their eyes.


Okay, whatever, you're right, I'm wrong. Jesus fucking christ, enough already!

In other news, I make ~$1000 a year less now. All things considered, that's not much of a pay cut. I can handle that. The question is, what is the government going to do with that money? I would like to see some serious spending cuts, if nothing else as an act of good faith on the part of the government that they're trying to learn to be responsible with money.

Considering that the US spends more on its military than most of the rest of the world combined, I wonder if you want any of the spending cuts to be military spending. I'm always amazed how Republicans are always looking to cut domestic spending — spending that helps Americans — but always want to increase foreign spending, usually in the form of a war that ends up hurting most Americans while a few get richer.

Of course, when Republicans are in charge we're told that "Deficits don't matter" or "We'll grow our way out of it"! :sigh:

Who said I'm a Republican? Or are you inferring that because of the gun shit, or because I'm prior service? Or are you just throwing that out there?

Just because one party had a bad idea it is ok for the other party to have the same bad idea? Blast Bush for his reckless spending, but don't act like a child and yell "he did it too!" when asked to stop.

Yes, I want the military spending to go down. Along with most other spending like foreign aid, entitlement programs, business tax breaks, etc. It will take a cut from both sides to get spending in check.

Deficits don't matter. You'll see. One day those tax cuts for the rich will supercharge the economy and create millions of jobs!

Well I don't think spending money on Americans is a bad idea. It actually goes along with the Republican idea of growth: spending means growth, cuts mean recession. I just don't like where they want to spend more (Wars, tax breaks for people who kill jobs), where they want to cut spending (infrastructure, health care), or how they increase my taxes (cut federal taxes and then payments to the states so my net taxes increase). It's all very anti-American.

@sloth - yeah. I guess maybe part of the reason I want to quit is cuz my team has the retarded kid that always scores against his own team.




Not really sure you're on his team, honestly. I get the impression you're on the "okay, let's settle down and try to figure this thing out so we can talk about something else for a change" team.
Match you nickels to see who's captain?
