Dems take positions that make them cringe

Over at BlueOregon, the people who try to stop black people from voting, (if I keep saying it then it must be true...) they are championing a new challenger to Greg Walden.

The funny thing is that they list the main reason for supporting him was his help in making the Democrat party more gun friendly.

It must burn them up to know that what they really believe (that guns somehow kill people all by themselves) turns off most of America. They must take positions that are palatable to normal people in order to get elected so that once in office they can restrict the contitutional rights that are actually in the constitution. (as opposed to those ones invented by Ruth Bader-Ginsburg)

I'm sure that many democrats felt the need to take a shower after applauding their parties new "friendly" position on guns.

I'm not familiar with the background here, but I must say, that resolution is one of the most toothless political actions I've seen.

- Section 1 - the second Amendment is an Amendment... that... is... the second one.
- Section 2 - criminals should be punished.

What the Democratic Party really needs, I think, is to stop being bloody politically correct, 'cause it en't getting them anywhere. Republicans call them anti-American and, with a few exceptions (notably Rep. Slaughter, who, I am pleased to say, is my own Congresswoman), they cower in the corner.

We need Andrew Jackson to be resurrected. When his enemies called him a jackass, he made it the party mascot.

LOL!

Kaelri,

That last line is really a keeper!

Thanks for the laugh!

posturing by liberals on gun issues has the same credibility as them telling us how much they support our troops.....none.

Daniel said...

I enjoy your comments Kaelri, what's your position on guns?

And Bear, it's becoming more and more acceptable in the Democrat party to be virulantly anti-military. And they wonder why they lose elections during wartime...

Why would they want to stop black people from voting? Only two in ten blacks supported President Bush. I don't have to lie to make that stick, it is a reality.

Question, if your so pro-military, why aren't you joined up. You are a young man. What's wrong, did your criminal record stop you from being let in. Looks like illegal aliens aren't the only criminals in our midst.

You could try checking my bio before you make statements like that...

Let's see:

1) Degree in Nuclear Measurements courtesy of the USAF (along with 6 years of honorable active duty service Mr Chickenhawk),

2) Degree in Industrial Engineering Technology courtesy of Southern Illinois University,

3) Degree in Political Science also courtesy of Southern Illinois University,

4) Candidate for Juris Doctor courtesy of University of Oregon, due to graduate in about 3 months,

5) Oh, and just to show that I am multiculturally edjumicated, I also have a liberal arts degree from Lane Community College (for what its worth).

Uneducated? Moi?

As for the "hillbilly" part--interesting, considering that I have lived in urban cities, including Chicago, Washington D.C., Denver, Sacramento, and London (you know, where we drink tea and dance with the Queen and what not) all my life. Eugene is the closest thing to a hillbilly town I have ever called home.

And as for the feet, well, you're just jealous, as you know what they say about the size of a man's feet...

Oh, wait, I forgot I am talking to a liberal. An answer that you could understand would have been:

Hey GB- Ever hear of the phrase "useless as tits on a bull". That about sums up your education. Too bad, all that education and you can't even afford shoes.

Bring 'em home!

The best way to "bring the troops home" is to WIN THE WAR.

Settle down.

"what's your position on guns?"

Hum. Mostly, I'm inclined to agree with President Bartlet: "We can't all just agree it's a stupid-ass amendment that was written before there were
street lamps, much less police forces, and move on?"

Even accepting it outright, you'll note that the words "a well regulated militia" are present in the first sentence. These words are clearly being misinterpreted by at least one of the sides.

I'm impressed by the Swiss method, to be honest.

What I don't really understand is the fundamental argument that we should be allowed to own weapons freely in the event that the government grows so corrupt that democracy is trumped.

The government doesn't need to fire a single shot to ruin an individual's life.

This is where I see a fair bit of hypocrisy in the standard-issue Republican ideology. We must have AK-47s to defend our families from thieves in the night, but as for President Bush spying on us at will, more power to 'im: the innocent have nothing to hide.

(Once again, I'll link to the writings of those who've said it better than I can. I've read Ann Coulter and Mac Johnson via your 'blog, so I hope you'll have an occasional look at Tom Tomorrow and Josh Marshall in fairness.)

So. I don't see the point of guns.

And concerning this pervasive criticism from your "anonymous" sheep that liberals don't join the military: Firstly, where are you getting your demographics? And second, if you aren't enlisted yourself, then sit down and hold your tongue: this isn't exactly your area of expertise.

Daniel said...

Kaelri, Tom Tomorrow is talking about the hunger strike in Guantanamo. Personally I think that if prisoners choose not to eat then we should let them die. Unless they have information we need. But that's just me.

As for the words about a "militia" being misinterpreted by at least one of the sides: I'm on the side of the supreme court.

Did you steal those off an illegal alien? I know you and Jason Atkinson are tight.

Please read the other four-fifths of the article.

"As for the words about a "militia" being misinterpreted by at least one of the sides: I'm on the side of the supreme court."

Aye. 'Cause they're infallible. Plessy v. Ferguson? No bias whatsoever.

gullyborg said...

> Did you steal those off an illegal alien?

Yes, because as we know, illegal aliens, by virtue of not having proper tax id, pay no taxes. Therefore, they have more money than I have. Since all good liberals agree that A) it is wrong for some people to have more money than others and B) everyone needs to pay more in taxes, I took it upon myself to beat an illegal immigrant and steal his expensive foreigner shoes, as his tax contribution to my well-being that the government would be able to give me, if only it had more tax revenue.

....illegal aliens, by virtue of not having proper tax id, pay no taxes.

Just wait Diryfeet, Jason Atkinson wants all those illegal made legal. You and Jason can then get to robbing good ol' Americans of their hard earned money.

...I took it upon myself to beat an illegal immigrant...

Now don't do that. Illegals are Jason Atkinsons biggest supporters. He wants them to be legal citizens and so do they. If you beat them, Jason won't have anyone to vote for him.

Instead, you should wash those ugly ass dirty feet you are sporting.

I shall drench them in the blood of my enemies!

Seriously, I must really be doing something right to draw such vitriol. I feel like Ann Coulter after a good pie fight.

Mmmmmm... Ann Coulter...

Ann Coulter, the anorexic skank--she looks like a rubber glove stretched over a skeleton.

More seriously, what is the deal with your liberal comments. You support Atkinson who supports amnesty for illegals. You can't get any more liberal than that. Liberal.
