    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    I'm hoping it doesn't come to a civil war but that depends on what happens with this gun control stuff. What I see is an economic collapse and further divide between the left and right. A lot of nanny state dependents are going to be in for tough times when the government is no longer able to support them. Survival instincts will lead to a lot of violence as people try to steal what they aren't given by the government and things will get ugly. Unfortunately I think the more radical on the right will attack government installations and troops and attempt to get control.

    In short either Obama will have enough momentum to take over and turn us in to a disarmed and fearful people under a socialist dictatorship or after a protracted violent period conservatives will rule by military decree. Either way we're ****ed.

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    Where were all of you who are so incensed at the thought you might lose some constitutional rights when the biggest hit against the constitutional rights of citizens was being glorified... The Patriot Act?

    I hope Obama doesn't enact Executive Powers to enact draconian gun control laws, but if he does the next president can use the same Executive Powers to reverse it... if SCOTUS hasn't already done so. It's one thing for various states to put bans on certain weapons, etc., but quite another when a president enacts a federal ban. My guess, he's going to close gun-show loopholes (good!) and impose a wider mandatory background check that includes a history of mental problems and certain convictions for violent behavior. I can't fault either of those. If he goes further, I'd be extremely disappointed.

    But I'm not going to run out, buy a Bushmaster, and start shooting anti-gun activists either.

    If some idiots actually choose to rebel over gun control good luck to them they'll just get slaughtered.

    That was different. The President had an "R" after his name.

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    This is all priceless really.

    At one time wing nuts on the Left were telling us that a Civil War is near because George W Bush was a evil wannabe dictator.

    So now the wing nuts on the Right are telling us that there will be a Civil War because Barack Obama is a evil wannabe dictator.

    After Obamas term is over then there will be getting a new evil wannabe dictator?

    Highly doubtful. This isn't something we haven't heard before, and as before, it depends on who is in 'control' that seems to bring out the fringe that start crying "civil war".

    Bunk.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    Since we declared war on terrorism it seems like the nation has split. The current administrations progressive or bust agenda has widened that split and seems to me the only thing in their way is the constitution. Civil War? Dunno.

    Given the Free Zone bans on College campuses I would not say there has been no change. Furthermore, the establishment of "hate" crimes where people who were accused of a crime get extra penalties if it is believed were done by some sort of prejudice. And with respect to acting against bullying some suggest to limit the 1st Amendment basses of content of the speech and not over just harsh language (thoughts and beliefs that they disagree with).
    Hardly unique to this President since what you refer to as “Hate” crimes is rooted to the Civil Rights Act of 1968.




    Government mandated Segregation and other Jim Crow laws was on the books for decades and recognized by the Federal Government in the military for nearly as long. The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to have the capability to overthrow a Tyrannical government and while full auto is generally not practical but is for the benefit for suppressive fire where needed. Semi auto is the principal fire arm of the US military and must be available to the general public for the same purpose.


    And the 2nd Amendment is in place now and will be available when Obama completes his term.Nothing is going to stop Simi Auto hunting rifles. Here is an image of what my 30 caliber looks like but IMO mine looks better. Its bones are from a M1 carbine.

    Lets be clear there are people in the House and Senate which do believe that American citizens should not be able to bear arms or even own them. They are in a minority now but hold positions of power in the Committees and with the present set up where bills are produced in the 11th hour and are not read by the members of the Legeslative Branch (since they are not able to) such blanket bans are possible after all did not the Obama Care bill became law since it would have to pass to read it?
    Have you ever heard of a“Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacie “? For instance;here is an excellent example of a “Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy “.

    "I can't help but think that you are the cause of this problem; we never had any problem with the furnace until you moved into the apartment." The manager of the apartment house, on no stated grounds other than the temporal priority of the new tenant's occupancy,

    Notice anything familiar in the paragraph below?Getta clue.Your post are full of them.
