    It didn't pass, plain and simple.

    not really ... its irrational to think that because I live in a safer country I live in a disarmed nanny state

    No, he had a discussion he was involved in. When it tough he did a Fox punk move, and just made a stupid outrageous statement.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I really have no idea what you were trying to say but it is completely irresponsible and irrational to support gun control and gun free zones and think your grandson is safe at school.

    within the context of this thread, what I am saying is that I can be virtually 100% certain that my grandson will not be shot while he is at school.

    I have not found stats on deaths while at school, and I know that there can be other causes, however these are generally pretty rare. There can be other injuries, but no gun related injuries.

    the greatest risk is vehicle accidents on the way to or from school .... but our deaths per capita from motor vehicle accidents is also considerably less than in the US - 5.71 per capita compared to 12.3

    That display was typical Chicago style caterwaul. I say this as a proud Chicagoan who detests the snarky "Chicago style thug politics" epithets thrown around so loosely by people who've never even stepped foot in my fair city.

    He showed a lack of dignity and displayed no comportment whatsoever. One could even say he sounded spiteful and vindictive. He looked like a pimp preacher up there with his trix.

    All in all I'd expect this type of behavior from my good old pal Hizzoner. He could pull it off and you know he had the chutzpah to make it sound convincing. Even that cheap fake tough guy whose sitting on the 5th floor now, I'd expect this from. What I don't expect, nor do I accept is that kind of tantrum from the President.

    You lost, loser. Suck it up.

    Actually, I was surprised that he would attempt to chastize Congress for his own political screw up. Moreover that he tried to sound tuff on the comeback while trying to defend his use and exploitation of those kids. That was the funny part. Him trying to describe what others were saying without using the Words Child Abuse.

    I didn't watch that link but I did hear it on C-SPAN.

    Why are you trying to change the subject? Is it because you know that you are simply wrong?
