Considering how Obama has approximately five months left in office and mass gun confiscation has yet to occur, he'd better get cracking.Aside from the background check rule, are guns any harder to get now than they were under Bush? Eight years of gun control hysteria from the right with Obama and you can still buy a gun with a fairly trivial amount of effort.
Other than "It was a lie!!!", I've never been clear why that line is supposed to matter. Making conflicting statements in the immediate chaotic aftermath of an attack doesn't appear to be a big deal, especially when you correct that statement shortly thereafter. What's the motive supposed to have been for lying, to deflect blame from radical Islam or something?It seems to basically stem from an assumption that all bad things that happen to America must stem from...
So...we should be able to reject blacks from lunch counters?"Don't force private business to do stuff" might sound like a basic thing, but it's got pretty deep implications for civil rights.Their personal opinions are kind of irrelevant, because they both know they're bound by the 2nd Amendment and Congressional politics. There's a 0% chance of significant restrictions of gun ownership, much less actual mass confiscation.What does "undermine Christianity" even mean? Not...
It's hard to say, because Hillary really hasn't gone after him at all and he's never faced serious national scrutiny before. Americans are still pretty twitchy about "socialism," and then you've got stuff like the so-called honeymoon to the USSR, openly pledging to raise taxes. I get the supposed benefits, but "I will raise your taxes. Yes I will." is a bad line for political attack ads.The polls of him vs Trump still reflect his status as "Not-Hillary," not as the...
I try not to watch cable news, but did Mitt really get portrayed as a religious extremist? I got mostly "out of touch fat cat."
The more obnoxious Sanders fan made that switch awhile ago, while somehow simultaneously still blaming the superdelegates. I think a lot of them don't understand that the superdelegates are supposed to put the nominee over the top in all but the most lopsided elections.Sanders calling for it now is just looking desperate. He's still touting those polls showing how he's more electable, and I think Clinton is still ignoring that argument, but it's so deeply flawed that I...
This pretty much just seems to fall under the territory of "Trump being Trump." I don't think we need some grand strategy or secret brinkmanship ploy, this is just what he does.I was pretty much expecting him to end up calling Hillary a "cunt" during a debate.
Those options are basically a guide for Luxire if you choose to provide body measurements. It's not a very reliable approach.
Calling public figures out on their bad behavior is part of the role of the media. Sticking to analyzing the race is part of the problem. This isn't limited to Trump either, the cable news obsession with politics as horserace really diminishes the substance of the political process. There's a lot more to talk about than just the politics of the instant. The things candidates say and do, and their impacts, are absolutely a necessary part of the conversation.I find NPR's...
Luxire doesn't have standard sizes, so there's not really a comparison there.
