    What simply is astonishing to me is we (as in Americans) are not to be trusted with certain weapons and are forced into gun free zone, yet random militants and rebels (who get no so called background check) should have them in droves according to Obama. Simply doesn't make sense no matter how you slice it.

    But the rebels need to be able to protect themselves from their government because their government is bad...

    I don't disagree with that, I just feel we as Americans should have them as well. To quote an overused quote (but an applicable one) "People shouldn't be afraid of their government, the government should be afraid of the people".

    I figured that...guess my Obama impersonation didn't translate well in text.

    It kinda did. This is just a sore subject for me, especially with Dems supporting the stance of gun-free zones, so I just wanted to be clear

    If all it took was for a sitting PotUS to provide material support to a Middle Eastern terrorist group for all the laws in supporting terrorists to be null, then these laws would have been made null before Obama took office.

    If you have a more specific point, than, "OMG! Obama is just like other PotUSes!" now is the time to bring it up.
    I may be wrong.

    There has been a ban in place prohibiting manufacturers, suppliers or individuals from doing business with organisations classified as terrorist groups, with hefty penalties for violation. So the question is, does the waiver that Obama signed lift that ban completely, or just give himself a pass to arm, train and provide material aid to known terrorist groups??

The only conclusion to this is that, once again, Obama has lied to American Citizens and to everyone on the national stage.

    If you don't think that doesn't harm US credibility then what does?



    First, you need to post some ironclad proof that President Obama has lied to the American people.

    Then, maybe, you might have a little credibility.

    As of right now, based on your posts I have you pegged as a member of the far right, which I usually ignore.

    As of right now, I have you pegged as a demagogic rabble rouser, with nothing to back up the malarkey that he spouts.

    Read a little history.

    Reagan transferred arms to Iran in the Iran/Contra kerfuffle.

    Iran promotes terrorism. Now do you get it?
