Here's some commentary that definitely doesn't pertain:
I give the daily question 24 hours and if it hasn't changed, then all comments are fair game. I don't like forum sites where there are always topic nazis and moderator bullies that won't allow open conversation. I like this site because everyone is usually pretty cool with letting the conversation run its own course. Also, my comments don't get flagged as inappropriate and removed if I express an opinion not consistent with the majority party line.

Okay, we're all over the place with comments that don't pertain. So, in that vein:
A quote from a new book on the 2012 presidential campaign, “Double Down: Game Change 2012,” will surely stoke interest. As first reported in a book review by the Washington Post’s Peter Hamby, Obama told aides in connection with the CIA's drone program that he is “really good at killing people.”

The gun control issue is just one of many facets of the same problem. Like I said, power hungry elitists want control and they have an agenda to get it. They will finally have it when we are unarmed, unskilled / uneducated, unable to accumulate wealth, unable to trust each other, and unwilling to worship any power higher than them. It will be hard to be free when we are completely dependant on them. Obedience to them will ensure basic survival and loyalty to them will be the only way to gain special privilege.
If we don't resist their power grabs, no matter how slight they may be, it will eventually be a dark future for America.

"Fast and Furious has increased gun violence .Really ?"
Yes, the body count is at least in the hundreds, including one U.S. Border Patrol agent. There is absolutely no investigative value in allowing functioning firearms to walk right out the doors of gun shops untracked and into the hands of violent cartel enforcers. Anyone with half a brain could have seen murders were going to be committed with those guns. If Holder knew about it, then he is complicit. If he didn't know about it, then he is incompetent.

"I don't need to thank the NRA for nothing,
And nobody outlawing guns ."
So, if the NRA isn't the one primary organization that has stood in the way of the Feinsteins, Bradys, Pelosis, and such, then who is? Don't think for a second that any of these elitist control freaks trust you, me, or anyone else with any type of firearm. They have their agenda and us being able to fend for ourselves isn't part of it.

"Should Congress renew the 2009 boost to food stamps that has now expired?"
Answer should be yes. Because after Obamacare bankrupts the American family with those high premiums, high out of pocket expenses and tripled annual deductibles...lots of people with need them when they struggle to pay their MANDATORY HEALTHCARE TAXES.
Maybe the question needs to be...how many LIVED because they had the right to bear arms, own defense weapons and have the right to protect themselves from the criminals element?
"We kill over 11000 people each year by gun violence."
That's all? Then that is a good year taking into consideration those number include criminals that cops had to kill, homeowners and individuals being forced to use deadly force to protect themselves from criminals, thugs killing thugs, criminals killing innocent people....heck I'd say that is a good number!
"Ladybug, The problem is that one side wants to fix Obamacare and the other side is out to destroy it completely."
I hope they accomplish it because it was a disastrous law from the start. Especially when it was based on nothing but LIE AFTER LIE AFTER LIE. The only thing Democrats know how to do.
Nothing good has come from Obamacare...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Fast and Furious has increased gun violence .Really ?
Maybe you read the news. We kill over 11000 people each year by gun violence.
By far the largest of any civilized nation. If that's what you call us
One there used to be a waiting period.The system must have improved.
I don't need to thank the NRA for nothing,
And nobody outlawing guns .

"That's why they ignored the 90% who wanted something about guns"
Until there is a system put into place in which mentally unstable people can be reported and added to the list of persons within the instant background check system who can not buy, the instant background check will always have its limitations. Don't expect to see that any time soon. That would reduce gun violence without outlawing guns. What we have already learned from Fast & Furious is that they are willing to purposely increase gun violence if it is a possible step toward disarmament.

"I bought a 9mm yrs. back and they haven't come after it yet."
You should probably sent the NRA a thank you card for that.
TripleD, just curios, what exactly does a waiting period do that a background check doesn't?
Nothing like a little liberal ignorance to start my day :)

I bought a 9mm yrs. back and they haven't come after it yet.
They also need to address mental issues,possibly clip size.
Funnie their willing to double border patrols but don't seem to be concerned about run away crime in the big cities.
Why don't we help double police protection ?
ladybug, You are correct. I own guns too, but I do not have a problem with a background check being run on me when I buy one. I purchased a 22 target pistol last year and I was shocked when I was told I could have it right then and there. I was unaware that they did away with the waiting period. The person who should not have a gun is the person who has to have it right that very instant.

I like their comments 1
Where doing what the American people want .
That's why they ignored the 90% who wanted something about guns,Why they ignore the 70% who said they didn't want the gov shut down.
Correct ! And meanwhile the American people are taking it up the back side.
While the little children fight. There's many pressing issues and none of them are being addressed.
Their famous saying .I can't vote for it. There's an election coming up. In reality there's an election every 2 yrs.

Ladybug, The problem is that one side wants to fix Obamacare and the other side is out to destroy it completely. There is no compromise, no half way with them. It is a take no prisoners, cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war strategy. It always has been. The failed to make Obama a one term president and now they are desperate to destroy any legistlatio that has his fingerprints on it. It does not matter if it is good or bad, it does not matter if it will hurt the United States of America, all that matters is that if Obama and the democrats voted for it then they are all against it.

Well I agree about Obamacare.
It's time for both sides to grow up and fix it instaed of fighting over it every day.
Our country is failing and no one is fixing it because everyone including te president thinks it has to be their way.
And, while we need to reduce our federal spending & fix the Obamacare mess deal with way too many other things, & people needing jobs...
The international scientific community has come out with a report that we are looking at years of very cold weather & our President...
Obama issued an executive order Friday directing a government-wide effort to boost preparation in states & local communities for the impact of global warming.
The action orders federal agencies to work with states to build “resilience” against major storms & other weather extremes. For example, Obama’s order directs that infrastructure projects like bridges & flood control take into consideration climate conditions of the future, which will require building structures larger & stronger & at a higher price tag.
