nothing dog.

nevertheless the same invitation holds true for all the forum followers. i'd like to see the people debate face to face instead of anonymously via the internet.

i typically hold court (kidding) in the same setting our founding fathers did, as has already been mentioned. we should all meet up & discuss our differences of opinion amicably sometime.

just a suggestion.

Seadog is having almost as bad a day as Steve has been having the past 3 days or so. And yes, his predictable change-of-subject-to-Obama-when-your-nonsense-is-called-out response was nicely foreseen by kristine lol.

hahahaha, this is almost TOO good to be true.

Read Seadog's comment directly below.

And then read Kristine's comment from Jan 11 at 12:00 a.m.:

"One other thing i've noticed about the conservatives in my life is that everytime you disagree with them about almost anything, they immediately associate you as an Obama lover, and bring up topics completely unrelated to what you are talking about and say "see what your hero Obama did this time..."....

LOL, oh...nonsense is fun to laugh at.

You're right mikey. If it doesn't come from WIKI or the NY Times, it's gotta be a lie. You want to lol, fredonia, how about putting Barry on Mt. Rushmore with the real presidents. Now that's funny!

Notice the comical response to the facts of the FBI table that Seadog himself referred to:

"I have no idea what you are talking about"

Yup.

I know, the facts don't matter Seadog, even though the numbers in the 'interesting petition' you brought up are lies, we'll leave it alone, because its just something you thought was 'interesting' LOL

On a much happier

"Al Sharpton aired a segment concerning a recent National Journal article which analyzed President Obama’s chances of attaining a coveted spot on Mt. Rushmore Friday evening on MSNBC. Teddy Roosevelt’s presence on the landmark garnered particular attention from Sharpton, who expressed his opinion that Roosevelt’s thin resume as a “transformative president” strengthens the case for Obama to be included....blah, blah, blah

So the reality now is that we have Rifles plus unspecified guns causing 4 times the deaths in 2005 that ALL BLUNT OBJECTS did.

And guns overall caused almost TWENTY TIMES the number of deaths as compared to All Blunt Objects. lol.

This comes from the same chart SEadog's info comes from, remember.

Seadog, at this point, will become very angry and state that 'unspecified guns' could mean anything. Well, then I guess 'all blunt objects' can mean anything too, eh Seadog??

So its silly to call ALL 600 of those deaths from 'hammers' and 'baseball bats' eh Seadog??

LOL. Ouch. Thats gotta hurt.

Smell that?

That smell is Seadogs last post. Doesn't it smell like nonsense?

Thats because it is.

Oh, this is gonna hurt, Seadog, just to warn you. Below is the fbi chart that Seadog's post originally stems from.

Notice, the overall gun deaths are actually 10,158 for year 2005. Rifles accounted for 445, as stated, and then there's 2 other 'pesky' little categories: 'other' guns, and 'type of gun not specified', which add up to over 2,000 deaths including 'rifles'.

Hmmmm..

But it gets worse: The 'hammer's and 'baseball bats' category that seadog framed really covers ALL BLUNT OBJECTS. Hammers and clubs [not bats] were just two examples...

Pesky....

So the reality is that rifles and unspecified guns caused almost FOUR TIMES the deaths of ALL BLUNT OBJECTS.

Must be alot MORE than 4 times if you single out just hammers lol.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: ban hammers and baseball bats.

"In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618. In 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs. It's clearly time to take action on hammers and baseball bats"

Been answered Seadog. Is that your best tactic, to just keep repeating things already answered?

Common, doggie, you can do better.

You asked "so can we "regulate more" free speech?"

And, as I showed you, in many cases, the answer is obviously yes, lol.

LOL,what? You twisted my words to make it look as though i was defending them? Oh, your mom really needs to spank you philly.

My point was that their speech is some ways IS regulated. We can't say anything we cant, anywhere and anytime. I can't stand in front of your house screaming lies about you for hours. I'd be arrested.

Get the point now? So, now you should understand why its okay to regulate guns better ;)
