Yep, that must be how you defend people.

He sure didnt come down on the terrorist. We know who did it. We know what he did. Why do we have to wait for anything else? He should have been much harsher on the piece of shit terrorist.

Did I mention Hassan is a terrorist?


I am also very tired of hearing the "alleged" shooter.

Every time I e-mail a politician, I always get a response explaining their opinions and what they are going to do. Like they are trying to change my mind, while belittling me at the same time.

I usually respond telling them how government is supposed to work and how ours does not. I tell them that they are supposed to work for the people, and make decisions based on what we want and not what they want. I never get a reply after that.

for anyone who doubts this guy is guilty I recommend the following.

go to a muslim country and go on a shooting spree yelling death to muslims.

I am sure their leaders will make sure they "know the facts" before they punish you.

I cannot even seem to get through when I call anymore. they are ignoring people on purpose. my guess is to force this stuff through so it cannot be changed since they realize that they will most likely not be re-elected.

voters need to stop voting on name recognition. look at levin. 83 years old and has been there since the 50's. stagnant people abusing the system. i have been urging people to vote out incumbents and get some fresh people. the people need to eliminate the "good ole boy" network in washington. we the people need to push agenda on our representatives holding them accountable. pushing agendas to take away legislator rights.

Term limits need to be imposed on all government positions, period.

I wish we had a real life version of the SEAL team from Vince Flynn's book Term Limits.

I do the same. Luckily there haven't been any black Suburbans in the driveway or choppers flying over that I know of.

I have called a couple times and have gotten interns that don't seem to know a damn thing.

Our reps suck. I had Levins rep telling my today that this is a evolving democracy, when I corrected her that we are a democratic republic. Which is totally different she hung up on me. I'm sure she past my view on, not. But I'll just keep writing and calling till they take it to the next step.

Sounds simple but try to get 51% of the population to all vote for the 3rd party. Wouldn't happen and then all you have is in control.
