Biden responsible for bad economy

Mr. Blair asked an interesting question regarding our economy in his Jan. 18 letter (“What caused big change in economy.”) What happened to it? The answer is quite simple … Biden.
In the last quarter of President Trump’s administration, the last quarter of 2020, the inflation rate was still under 2%, the GDP was growing over 4%. Just like Biden has done with everything President Trump did, he did the exact opposite of what worked.
People were paid to stay home on top of the unemployment they were paid. Some genius in the Democratic Party thought this was good; it would force wages up.
Instead, as businesses began to open they couldn’t get people to come back to work. The Democrats managed to turn us into France. All the extra money people had without working caused shortages, which drove up prices.
On top of this, Biden shut down the oil/gas industry, causing the price of gasoline to rise, again. Inflation. The products that were manufactured couldn’t get to market, creating supply chain problems.
Biden, actually Obama, I believe, is responsible for our country’s economic problems.
Anything that President Trump did that made our country stronger has been reversed by the Democrats. Look at the once-secure border.

Board didn’t need to grant variance

The good news is that my friend got a variance for the repair of his 60-year-old fence; the bad news is that no variance was necessary.
Neither the Niskayuna ZBA nor the town attorney applied that part of the town law that specifically says that repair of a continuing nonconforming use shall be permitted.
The chairman actually said that we weren’t there to argue the law, but only to give facts.
The fact is every board of appeals is to consider the law, the whole law, not just the part it likes, and apply the facts to it. And the chair should not cut off an answer because it’s not what he wants to hear. The board should be objective.
The current zoning law says that the ornamental side of a fence must face out, with the non-ornamental side facing the property owner.
The fence in question was 60 years old, erected long before the zoning law; a large part, but not all, of the fence was in disrepair and falling down. That large part of the fence was replaced, with the ornamental side facing the property owner’s side, just as it had originally been erected.
This was the repair of a continuing non-conforming use, exempt from the permit or variance process.
Thanks to ZBA Board Member Mr. Hoke who moved approval, Mr. Ltaif who seconded, and the four other members of the board who voted for it. The fence is legal. And, of course, it always was.

Book offers peace of mind for our time

We are all aware of the many anxieties upon us such as the pandemic, wars, hunger, etc. We look for ways to cope, and it’s difficult to find real peace.
I am fortunate that I found my peace of mind and more in a book that directed me to delve deeper into God’s Word, entitled, “The Lord is My Shepherd,” by Robert J. Morgan.
Mr. Morgan takes the entire 23rd Psalm and breaks it down verse by verse and sentence by sentence.
The reader will be treated to many stories and examples of how people relied on the Good Shepherd who was only too happy to accommodate them.
I have never read anything more inspirational. I never realized how the 23rd Psalm could reach me so personally.
Many of you who are reading this may already be familiar with this psalm, but I guarantee you’ll learn things about it from this book you’d never have considered. The stark realities of the Good Shepherd and his flock are amazing.
The Schenectady County Library carries this book. It’s also available on Amazon and I’m sure any bookstore will order it for you.
It only requires a little time to read for a long lasting reward, so I’d highly encourage you to pick up a copy of this book.

MR Edward’s please sir Remember Jan 6th and the dead while you pine for the good Ole days of damsel Donnie. We are fortunate to have thrown that lunatic to the curb. The economy will improve there is no need for the nation to live in the sewer of Trumpism.Biden put this nation back on the right track we do not support Putin or other autocrats

Bill Marincic

Bob/Chris you and the rest of the Blind Mice Donkey Clowns are freaking out over Mr. Edwards letter. You can’t stand the fact that most people don’t agree with your far left ideology. Most Democrats don’t agree with your far left ideology. I can’t wait to watch all of the rest of you clowns meltdown over one letter.

christophe Stalka

Big Bm you start the day off with your nasty name calling its as irrelevant as you’ve made yourself move on creep I’m sure you have more lies to tell and insults to hurl. Some one may care I dont

Bill Marincic

Bob/Chris who really is the creep and liar? Would it be the people hiding behind fake names acting like keyboard warriors like yourself. Nothing I said is a lie. Nothing I ever say is a lie. I proved that fact, regardless if you went there to see it or not it was there.

Mr. Bill 🤡 you and Mr. Edwards need to take a class in “information literacy” ….You read or hear something and because it fits your narrative you assume it’s true. Again you just came into the room, farted, turned around and walked out. Neither of you cite your sources ….which just makes your comments just smelly gas.

christophe Stalka

Mr Big Bm you lie constantly that is the only fact you’ve ever proved should we start with a list geez dude you’re nothing but a liar? Give it a rest You sir are a liar and a flake who seems to think two people are writing this post… you’re soooo confused

Great letter Mr. Edwards. If you have this group of extreme liberal yahoos hating on u, then you’re on the right path. Its good to see people calling out the Gaslighter in Chief.

The deep state panic for the socialist. Shifty Schiff and Swalwell of the intel committee. They no longer have the inside track on intel. Even though an endorsement was sent I believe it will fall onto deaf ears. The clock is Ticking for the deep state. TIK TOK

NY Post article: 4 migrants arrested for stealing $12K of merchandise from Macy’s. Chase bank closing ATM’s early due to raising crime rate and vagrancy. Nice job Mayor Adams of NYC you are right on track to turn the big Apple into San Francisco. And we have have Govenor Kathy (THE JOKES ON YOU) Houchal to thank for this. We are the highest taxed state in the nation. The elected have given themselves a raise for destroying our state’s economy. This is what socialist do. It is only going to get worse. This is the bed you DONKEY CLOWNS voted for soon to come to a neighborhood near you.

“Rand found that stand-your-ground laws, which encourage people to shoot rather than back away from confrontation, or flee from situations that cause them to be afraid, ‘increase firearm homicides.'”
The quote is from p. A12 of today’s DG. It is from an analysis of “The Rand Corporation think tank’s…latest update on gun policy research.

I would not be carrying a legal gun. You asked me what I would do in the scenario you imagined. I emphasized that having a legal gun would not mean using it was the wisest decision. Anyone reading our exchanges knows that. We are in agreement on one point ,”Its an unreal scenario” and your use of it in defense of toting guns to enforce vigilante justice has been exposed as the ludicrous idea it is. As I clearly explained, I believe opening fire on the “sick person” would be more likely to result in injuries and deaths than turning over your “valuables.” Are material goods more valuable than your life? Are your valuables more important to you than the lives of others? I await your answers.

letsgobrandon

Anti gun advocates on MSM : Vice news puts up a post of a high caliber round piercing a metal wall. Oh my goodness very very scary and the anti gun advocates point and say see look how dangerous these guns are.
The photo is a full round casing and all stuck into this wall to look like it was fired.
Since the anti gun advocates are so stupid to believe this photo or the MSM media believes they are that stupid that they would publish such crap to push a gun control agenda. California has the most strict gun controls in the country. The criminals are getting weapons on the black market. Stopping law abiding citizens from protecting themselves. Another step in the NAZI agenda of the Democratic Socialist party.

This was Steve’s scenario:

Steven Flynn
January 24th, 2023
Man walks into a diner waving an illegally owned gun at the patrons and demanding everyone to turn over their valuables. He moves through the diner threatening to shoot other patrons and his demeanor is very erratic, a ticking time bomb. A male patron sitting in one of the booths pulls out his legally owned gun and shoots the erratic man and kills him. This very well could have saved lives of innocent people trying to enjoy a meal. What possibly saved the lives of others? A man with a legally owned gun.

ANTHONY J SANTO

My original answer: ANTHONY J SANTO
January 24th, 2023
Steven, you have a great imagination, but offering the scenario above as support for loose gun laws is worthless. It is entirely possible, probably more likely, that random shots fired back and forth between the “good guy” and the “bad guy” would result in unnecessary deaths.

ANTHONY J SANTO

The MAGA posters are sounding more and more like the “pod people” from the 1956 sci-fi movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” They mindlessly echo the words of their masters regardless of their validity.

OH boy here’s another big surprise. Ukraines defense minister Vyacheslav Shapovalov resigns over corruption allegations. Hmm how much money has this guy embezzled before the allegations were brought. Biden keeps sending these corrupt socialist leaders or countries resources to keep the corrupt business in operation. Once again the corrupt money laundering country that supports the AZOV Nazi battalion. If Putin is on the run why are we sending more weapons. The corruption will be exposed. Human trafficking, bio labs, money laundering they will be held accountable.

Bill Marincic

Santo, you are a fool obviously you have never been in a live-or-die situation. If you have a firearm it is your duty to take out the guy, if he kills because you are a coward then those killed are your fault. And if you don’t have a weapon you better hope someone else does.

DeSantis reining in the corrupt school board. Enacting a bill to Empower Educators in Florida. Taking away the ability for the corrupt teachers union and introducing a teachers bill of rights. Glad to see they are making in roads to reign in the corrupt D.O.E. and teachers unions.

Let me state this here and now, if Gavin Newsome is the Democratic nominee and he wins, the election was rigged. So copy and paste BMDCs.

Hey Lou please ask Al if he knows me, we had dinner a couple weeks ago, ask him who my friend was that came with me. Don’t forget to tell him I think you’re a lefty a hole.

Hey little Willy, 🤭I already know one friend who was with you, your imaginary mind man who inspires you to puke out your evil, supremacist, racist rants.

Your thinking I’m an “a hole” is quite different than you actually being one. Speaking of that area of the body, yours, in all likelihood, is plugged, which explains what has backed up and filled your head.

Tonight, pray to Jesus to cleanse your soul, and perhaps your head, say three Hail Mary’s two Our Fathers, and you will be pure, then you can start up your hate towards fellow man crap again in the morning. But for now go break some glass and see how it falls, or sell some overpriced undercoating and Scotch Guarding to unsuspecting car buyers.

Wow the information keeps coming in Arizona election tabulator machines from 2022 election. Tabulator machines rejected nearly 1/4 of a million vote attempts this was never repaired and cast doubt that the 2022 elections were left vulnerable to fraud. Now the voter fraud proof is coming forward. I wonder if it is the same tabulators from the 2020 election. HMM Scooby -doo mystery looks like they will unmask old man Higgins and he fraudulent voting machines. DOINK.

Classified documents. So after looking at executive order 13526 section 1.7 explains Classifications and limitations. So the declassified documents Trump had does it pertain to the classified documents that Biden took while senator, VP. Obama can come out and say he declassified the documents to get Biden off the hook. Trump came out in defense of Mike Pence and his character. Even after all the nasty things Pence said about Trump. So was this a trap set for the deep state players like Obama, Biden, Clinton, McConnell, Romney, Pelosi. It seems the deep the hole the more people are involved. I hope the information comes forward on the content of the classified documents and exposes EVERYONE involved REGARDLESS of who is involved.

Bill Marincic

Classroom time: Sister Rosemary Elephant:
Ok class no sit down and shut up…..
Is there U.S. backed bio labs in UKRAINE?
CLASS .. CLASS.. SHUT UP.
Chris here you go not my words, just a copy and paste for your reading enjoyment.

When Victoria Nuland, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, acknowledges that the U.S. does have bio labs in Ukraine, including Level 3 labs harboring dangerous pathogens, perhaps we should pay closer attention. These pathogens supposedly include bacteria that cause bubonic plague, cholera, and tuberculosis; and also highly virulent strains of viruses such as to cause hemorrhagic fever (Ebola, Marburg). The World Health Organization (WHO) advised Ukraine to destroy these, but only after Russian troops invaded. Will Ukraine comply? Not likely.
Even for the enemy, sometimes telling the truth is expedient in winning a war. Could Putin be truthful when he claims to have documents supporting his biowarfare lab claims? Don’t expect an acknowledgment from the WHO, CDC, or any other U.S. spokesman. No country would be foolish enough to admit anything such as harboring secret bioweapons.

letsgobrandon

Chris and the donkey clowns this is for you.

The esteemed pseudo-elites of this world will never understand this struggle because they are incapable of discerning the deeper things in life. While they do all in their power to pollute our minds with lies, they know nothing of the battle for a pure soul. They hope to convince us the sky is falling and that they alone are the way of our salvation. But we must strive to remove all falsehood and lies far from our sphere of influence. Thence comes refining of pure spiritual gold. By this come peace and simplicity. This is how we win the battle for our minds.

I think I will call myself Antony Santo the II would it make a difference to what I post? Silly DONKEY CLOWNS avoid the facts will silly nonsense. Make sure you are first in line when the socialist train comes to take you to vacation land. In vacation land everything you desire is free and you can do nothing but sit in the sun, drink fruity drinks, play games. Only the best socialist get to go to vacation land. So make sure you are first in line and enjoy the ride.
But remember before you enter vacation land you all have to take a deep cleansing shower together. Then you may enter.

ANTHONY J SANTO

I have never known anyone as ignorant and arrogant as BM. He also lacks self-awareness. The combination of arrogance and ignorance manifests as a total inability to distinguish between truth and fiction. He is one of the Pod People. I think I will start addressing him as PPBM, PodPersonBM.

The scenario Steve described did not include the thief killing anyone yet BM, who is obsessively concerned about posters insulting others posts this:

“Santo, you are a fool obviously you have never been in a live-or-die situation. If you have a firearm it is your duty to take out the guy, if he kills because you are a coward then those killed are your fault. And if you don’t have a weapon you better hope someone else does.”

Obviously people have a right to defend themselves, including killing someone, who is an immediate and real threat to their lives. However, the proliferation of guns in this country is responsible for our much higher incidence of death by fire arms than in comparable countries.

“The U.S. had 3.96 deaths per 100,000 people in 2019. That was more than eight times as high as the rate in Canada, which had 0.47 deaths per 100,000 people — and nearly 100 times higher than in the United Kingdom, which had 0.04 deaths per 100,000.” NPR 1/24

May 31, 2022 — “The US has 23 times the rate of firearm homicide seen in Australia. The trend continues for percentage of child deaths caused by firearms.” Institute for health metrics

This what PPBM sounds like to me: Support the powerful gun lobby fighting to keep money flowing into the coffers of gun manufacturers. Buy a gun, carry it everywhere and shoot the bastards before they shoot you.

ANTHONY J SANTO

GFB, I think you meant to address this to PPBM:

Nick Fuentes, Trump’s recent dinner guest, arose briefly into the air from his filthy, racist, bigoted swamp of hatred only to be quickly pushed back under:

January 25, 2023 Extremists, Social Media

The Huffington Post reports:

“Twitter reinstated and then quickly re-banned the account of Nick Fuentes, the prominent white supremacist who most recently made headlines for joining the antisemitic presidential campaign of rapper Ye. After a year-and-a-half exile from the platform, Fuentes’ account returned Tuesday morning. By Wednesday, it was banned again.

Twitter representatives have not yet explained the reinstatement nor the subsequent ban.

In a Twitter Space on Tuesday night, during the brief 24 hours he was back on the platform, Fuentes mocked critics who have accused him of antisemitism and said, “Don’t care, bitch. Jews run the news, bitch. Sup … Jews run the media. Back on Twitter, let’s f—king go.”

Is this what you think it is, because I do.

Pseudo elite

Abstract. The paper analyses the changes in the class structure of the post-socialist societies under the influence of the neoliberal development strategy and the restauration of peripheral capitalism.
It especially focuses on the changes that have taken place in the very composition of the ruling neobourgeois class, of its fractions and elites. In particular, it analyses the social profile of the comprador bourgeoise and its political elites, as well as the detrimental effect they have on the future and the development of the Balkan societies. Through uncritical acceptance of the neoliberal strategy of dependent modernization and obediance to their Western mentors, the satellite pseudo-elites have contributed more to the processes of destruction than those of creation. They have brought about the peripherization of economy, society and culture and have pushed Serbia and the Balkans into the zone of peripheral capitalism.
The paper explores the social position and the role of the given groups in the social structure, in the system of the division of social power and in the current social changes in Serbia and the Balkans. It also compares the changes in the class structure that have occurred in the Balkan societies to those that have taken place in Latin America and Asia, pointing thereby to the relevant similarities and differences. The common denominator turns out to be that all of those societies in the various parts of the world are dependent societies of peripheral capitalism in the global system. They are ruled by the comprador bourgeoisie and satellite lumpen-elite. They are heavily segregated and exploited societies, they are deeply devided, and full of risk and conflict.
The paper concludes with a paraphrase of a thought of Rene Dimon (expressed in his Neocolonial Rule in India): without a change in the development strategy and the social structure, that would strip the comprador bourgeoisie and all the corrupted elites in both the cities and in the rural areas of their power, Serbia will never be able to make any progress!

Chris:
Let’s go Brandies if your such a great patriot why so hot for Putin? How many times you gonna bring up that biolab lie before you admit it’s not true?man your worse than my 2 year granddaughter?

I was just clarifying that you hate your grand daughter by saying I am worse hence meaning she’s bad but your worse.
My other question was do you have the authority to proclaim her gender.
As the DONKEY CLOWNS push for gender neutrality it is offensive that you declare your granddaughter/ grandson/ she / her / he /him them/ they identity. I am just trying to speak at your level so you can understand what an idiot you truly are.
I mean that as a compliment.

Santo, you walked right into that the US had 3.96 per 100,000

In the year ending March 2022, there were around 45,000 offences involving a
knife or sharp instrument in England and Wales (excluding Greater
Manchester Police Force). This was 9% higher than in 2020/21 and 34% higher
than in 2010/11.

ONS data shows that West Midlands Police Force recorded the highest rate of 152 offences involving a knife per 100,000 population in 2021/22, a 3% decrease on the rate of 156 recorded in 2020/21. Dyfed-Powys had the lowest rate of 34 offences per 100,000 individuals (up from 28 in 2020/21).

Regarding David Edwards’ letter, another that reveals much anger and very little understanding of how the world works, and who to point the Anger Horn at (a musical instrument popular with clueless brassholes everywhere).

No debate about the state of the economy is an honest debate when it doesn’t acknowledge the COVID pandemic and it’s economic effect. It’s as simple as that, if you want to be seen as more than corrupted Minah birds.
So all you trumpy parrots reciting your leaders’ whining points about the failings of President Biden better get used to being treated like the class dunces because that’s how you look and sound to the rest of the world.

Like Guy said if it fits “your narrative.” Pick one one incident, blow it up far out of proportion, then scream out a big, see how right I am.

How about you take all the crime committed, in San Francisco and the “big Apple” and and see who commits more, migrants or good old USA citizens.

“crime rate and vagrancy” in all likelihood 99% Americans. Migrants, for the most part , want to fly under the radar, so as to be able to capitalize on the opportunity here, and not draw attention to themselves.

Other than a wall of ignorance built by PPBM block by block, I don’t know what I walked into. The topic was DEATHS CAUSED BY GUNS, not “offences involving a knife or sharp instrument.” This is classic apples to oranges. You don’t even mention the types of “offences involving a knife or sharp instrument” nor do you give statistics on such incidences in the U.S. So, PPBM, no pun intended, what is your point; all I know is that it is not too sharp.

The lawyer for the family of Virginia teacher Abigail Zwerner says there were multiple incidents with the student who ultimately shot her, the Washington Post and NBC News reported.
According to lawyer Diane Toscano, Zwerner was shot in the chest in her first-grade classroom. The shooting of the teacher has been part of an ongoing dismissal of violence in the school, teachers and parents complain. There have been three shootings there since late 2021.
The school board is set to vote on whether to fire the superintendent Wednesday during the meeting essentially. The superintendent was informed about the shooter having a gun at school ahead of the incident.
In fact, Zwerner contacted her family about an hour before being shot to say that she was worried about what the student might do and that administrators at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News weren’t doing anything.

Zwerner also wasn’t the only teacher who informed administrators and expressed concern. In one incident, the student threatened to light a teacher on fire and watch her die, the Post reported. Everyone was ignored.

Vice News reports:

“Mike Lindell is running for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee. But no one involved in the RNC, which is gathering for its winter meetings in California this week, seems to know why—or who’s backing him.

Iowa Republican Party Chairman Jeff Kaufmann told VICE News that Lindell was running a “pseudo-campaign” that didn’t amount to more than some cookie-cutter form emails from fringe activists. Lindell told VICE News that he has qualified to appear on the ballot, which two RNC members said they’d confirmed with the committee.

But Lindell refused to say who supports him. “I wouldn’t tell you that in a million years. What, so you could go attack them? I’m not stupid. You guys must really think I’m dumb,” he told VICE News. “I’m going to win.”

The only saving grace for you is that you are no longer able to indoctrinate kids anymore.

I bought new My Pillows for every bedroom in the house plus some Geeza Dream Sheet, I love the pillows, best I have ever owned, and the sheets as well are great.

No lies from me about NYC the beloved NY post article about the migrants, Chase Bank posted a statement to the customers. Due to recent rise in robberies and vagrancy the ATM lobby will be closed 6 PM.
They did that in response to the huge numbers of illegal immigrants in NYC.
I really cannot blame the top earners leaving the cesspool the Democratic Socialist created just like the crap filled streets of SanFrancisco.

“…in response to the huge numbers of illegal immigrants in NYC.”
Yet another hallucination, eh? You have no proof that was the reason. IN FACT, the influx of immigrants are being properly housed by the city, and given due process addressing their needs.
It’s called compassion. It’s what Christians, and indeed most Americans do.
You on the other hand…

A man in Germany fatally stabbed two people and injured seven others on a train before police finally arrested him Wednesday.

“It is terrible,” Interior Minister of Schleswig-Holstein state Sabine Suetterlin-Waack told German public broadcaster NDR. “We are shocked and horrified that something like this has happened.”

The MSM is the attack dog for the propaganda machine of the socialist. Mike Lindell is under no obligation to give any information out to anyone. Look at how they attacked the new congress because they debated for weeks to come up with a speaker.
How dare they the rank and file should squirm under the thumb of career politicians corrupt to the core.
I hope Mike Lindell achieves whatever goals he sets for himself. Seems like a smart guy has a multi million dollar company, knows how to manage it and deal with crisis of attacking MSM and corrupt deep state DOJ, FBI. I just recombine d to stay out of the drive thru at Hardees since the DOJ and FBI seem to stake out those locations looking for evil meat eating conservatives.

A whole helluva lot of Republicans expressed shame at what the lunatic fringe of the Republicans were demanding, and how Kev bent over for them to be leader. It sure wasn’t the rosy “debated for weeks” picture you want us to believe. It was shameful, following your shameful results at the midterms.

You remember, the Red Spurt of the 2022 midterms? When you were SURE you’d sweep America of their feet?

It must be exhausting faking success all the time and bragging there will be more.

The lawyer for the family of Virginia teacher Abigail Zwerner says there were multiple incidents with the student who ultimately shot her, the Washington Post and NBC News reported.
According to lawyer Diane Toscano, Zwerner was shot in the chest in her first-grade classroom. The shooting of the teacher has been part of an ongoing dismissal of violence in the school, teachers and parents complain. There have been three shootings there since late 2021.
The school board is set to vote on whether to fire the superintendent Wednesday during the meeting essentially. The superintendent was informed about the shooter having a gun at school ahead of the incident.
In fact, Zwerner contacted her family about an hour before being shot to say that she was worried about what the student might do and that administrators at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News weren’t doing anything.

Zwerner also wasn’t the only teacher who informed administrators and expressed concern. In one incident, the student threatened to light a teacher on fire and watch her die, the Post reported. Everyone was ignored.

YES Chuck I would have taken out the kid. If shots are fired the only way to stop it is to remove the source. Child or not, I grew up with guns in my house . I was taught gun safety and responsibility. I will say as kids our minds were not polluted by the violent video games kids play. Maybe that is the reason the child didn’t know better. Maybe if that is the case the parents of the child should e held accountable for having an unsecured fire arm in the house.
My wife grew up in a house were her father was a police officer, his gun was out unsecured but she and her brother knew that they were not to touch it.
Maybe if the indoctrination of our children win schools would actually hold children and parents responsible for the behavior of their children.
I know growing up the last thing you want to face is your parents being told you were acting up and causing problems. The discipline received was a deterrent to the acting up.

Anyone on this forum allowed to carry their firearm where they work? Don’t care if you have a permit or not, I’m going to make a solid bet the answer is likely NO. Why is that? The business owners do not want the liability. For those of you that carry, do you have some kind of liability policy in effect for carrying in public? Even keeping one in your home for that matter as well. The average lawsuit for an unlawful shooting is likely to be several million$ if you can afford that coverage. If you go out like Wyatt Earp and end up in a jam for an unlawful shoot, good luck in prison or losing everything you own. You’ll lose it all in court & lawyer costs alone before you get to any decision. How many of you have any extensive training in shoot\don’t shoot, use of deadly force training, etc.? How often do you qualify at the range to train for such situations? If you are not getting certified on a continuous basis like we expect of our police, you are probably more of a danger than a help to society. There is a direct correlation to number of shootings with number of guns in circulation. Simple traffic altercations and bar fights are turning into homicides on a regular basis. Don’t believe me, go check with Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, and other states with relaxed firearms laws. Their state departments of justice will provide the statistics to tell you exactly that.

My god what a fool you are…

When people are confused about their concealed carry rights, one of the most common places they are concerned about is a bar. This is for good reason as there is no set nationwide law on this. In fact, the law varies greatly from state to state regarding whether or not an individual can carry in a bar, or any other place that serves alcohol.

There is a number of states that allow conceal carry in a bar. Other states have various punishments for being caught doing so. Adding to the confusion surrounding this situation are the conceal carry laws in the state of Arizona where they now allow conceal carry without a permit in many situations.

When it comes to bars in the state, an individual can carry their weapon into a place with a valid liquor license if they have a conceal carry permit, but not if they don’t, meaning the non-permit conceal carry law only applies to certain unregulated areas. Beyond that, an establishment can enact their own set of rules banning the concealed carry of a firearm if they wish to do so.

When I think about it, beyond one reason only, I could not care less about how you, the three true clowns, live your pathetic ill-informed lives.

My only concern is about the fact that you are infringing on my fundamental right to life. If successful with your ignorant naïve behaviors we will eventually, partially or totally go down, and when we do, I and those I love will go down with and because of you. You are a cancer to the world and yourselves.

Climate change and mass shootings, your games have begun.

No F___youBiden. I don’t think you would’ve “taken out the kid”. I think you would’ve peed in your pantaloons first.

Nothing else you state here, including the sermon on your righteous childhood, carries any credibility. So no, I don’t think you’d have it in yourself to shoot a 6 year old with a gun.
But you expect teachers to be armed, don’t you.

Ignorant and ever babbling PPBM, you post: “A man in Germany fatally stabbed two people and injured seven others on a train before police finally arrested him Wednesday.” That is a violent and tragic event which has nothing to do with these statistics. You have no idea how incapable you are of carrying on a meaningful debate:

PEW Research Center: “In 2020, the most recent year for which complete data is available, 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries in the U.S., according to the CDC”

GW: Made for Minds : 6/11/22 “Though gun violence is relatively rare in Germany, an average of 155 people are killed by gunfire every year.

The population of Germany is 83.2 million. That works out to 1 death by gunfire for every 536744 Germans annually.

The population of the U.S. is 331,000,000. That works out to 1 death by gunfire for every 7319 Americans.

Yup, loose gun laws result in far higher rates of death by gunfire. Do you understand that PPBM?

I wouldnt shoot a 6 yr old, whats your problem. I thought he was talking about the kid in the diner and posted it right under.

Steve, I don’t have a problem. You do. Try attending an anger management class.

The dude in the diner I would’ve.

I thought (still do) you meant you would have shot in both instances. I believe you now realize how awful that sounds and are covering up. I could be wrong but “Yes sir” is an affirmative response to ChuckD’s question about a “kid.” You then added “The dude in the diner I would’ve.” You did not say, “I was referring to the man in my diner scenario,” In your scenario you described the perp entering the diner as a “man.” A 6 year old is a kid.

Flynm, i asked the question if you would’ve shot the 6 year old and immediately under that your reaponse: “yes sir”.

“Mealy mouth” doesn’t begin to describe your contributions here.

Finally, Joe Manchin is calling for an obvious fix to Social Security, one I have repeatedly said is a straightforward fair way to guarantee SS recipients continue receiving their benefits. The current cap is $147,000 annually.

“Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin wants to change the way in which Social Security is funded, notably raising the cap on payroll taxes in order to make the highest earners contribute more to the program’s reserves.” Yahoo news 1/24/23

And still we await someone from the right wing to offer something, anything they’ve done to make all Americans proud, to make all Americans lives better.
Constantly failing at revenge is not something to be proud of.

Listen LCIAS there were 45000 knife attacks in the UK, how many in Germany? How many murders by other means? Obviously, you lefties are too stupid to understand that if you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns.

Looney Lou, the climate change idiot, tell me Lou, the earth rotates around the sun is that an exact circle? Did you know that the sun rotates around the galaxy? Did you know that it’s not a perfect circular pattern? Do you think in the 220 million years it takes for the sun to rotate the galaxy that at times planets that are orbiting the sun are going to have periods of warming and periods of cooling? or are you now an aerospace expert as well?

Well, then marincic, it follows: that if they’d stop outlawing illegal cars, we could all have cars! Right?
How cool would that be! And great for the undercoating business, eh?
We could start handing out cars in middle school, never too young to start!

Chuckles, I was taught to drive at 12, I took my road test in a 60s Chevy Suburban with three on the tree at 16 and passed my first time. What’s your point chuckster?

I’ve owned 11 cars and only one wasn’t manual. My last car i drove off the showroom floor with 7 miles on it. I finally had to give it away with 220,000 miles, and the clutch was never in need of service.
I win the Man points!

PPBM, Seek help. Perhaps you and Flynn can go to anger management class together. Taking a course in critical thinking and developing the ability to digest facts and come to reasonable conclusions would give you the skills needed to present your arguments more effectively. As things stand, you are unable to present effective arguments to support your opinions and your values are decidedly not Christ like and certainly un-American. You publicly posted before an election, if the Democrat won, you would insist the election was rigged. That is antithetical to democracy. Your Orange Highness has turned you into a sycophantic little tyrant, a man who believes in autocracy. You will not win. Justice will prevail.

Martin Luther King, Jr., reminded us that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Change takes a long time, but it does happen.
