Mr_Heatmiser 1 year, 3 months ago on Obama: Time to act

I believe we have already elected our last republican president.

It doesn't really matter though. The truth is, as Mark Steyn said yesterday, we've merely chosen to drive over the cliff at full throttle rather than in third gear. Republicans, democrats, they're both just different concentrations of the same poison.

"....reject political "absolutism" and partisan rancor ...."

...said the king of political absolutism and partisan rancor.

I, for one, am certainly glad to see liberals suddenly decide to start "caring about the children," considering that until now they didn't have much of a problem with 1.2 million of them being killed every year.

The area surrounding our downtown is the highest concentration of poverty in southwest GA. That might have something to do with it.

Also, a good bit of our downtown looks like somebody with a bad case of ADD and no taste tried to paint Afghanistan.

Mr_Heatmiser 1 year, 3 months ago on Soldiering on for weapons of mass destruction

But I don’t recall any amendment guaranteeing us the right to own weapons that have the capacity for such wanton violence and destruction. And, other than a misguided lust for power that owning such weapons brings, I see no use for the weapons other than what happened in Newtown.

What sort of weapon did the second amendment guarantee us, Carlton?

Perhaps it's odd, but when I think about the phrase "a well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state", I actually tend to think more of a military-style weapon than a hunting firearm.

Also, just because you don't see the need for something doesn't mean the need doesn't exist.

Social Security & Medicare are a cancer that will eventually kill this country if it's not treated. And, just like cancer, the treatment for it sucks in the short run, but without it, there usually is no long run.

I'll make you a deal: I'll pay for my own kids' education, and you pay for your own retirement.

Mr_Heatmiser 1 year, 6 months ago on Charter amendment detrimental to schools

The amendment says that funding to the school SYSTEM will not be reduced as a consequence of students enrolling in charter schools. Adding a new school to the school system would mathematically seem to require reducing funding to the other schools, unless taxes are increased.
