Re: Florida shooting

Instead of being upset with the Republican party with its racist leader and dog whistles, you have a problem with me for opposing them.

Sorry, but you've pretty much blown whatever credibility...

Re: Florida shooting

Developing countries are often corrupt and/or inadequate policing.

The US also has advanced trauma care that can keep a lot of gunshot victims from becoming homicides (although they may be badly...

Re: Florida shooting

I wasn't there, so I don't know what happened.

What I do know that going in without backup could have made it worse.

What caused the problem was providing easy access to weapons.

Re: Florida shooting

Here's how I would approach that issue as a statistician or a political scientist...you start out in 1954 by saying 'nigger, nigger, nigger.' By 1968 you can't say 'nigger,' that hurts you,...

Re: Florida shooting

He could have very well been a corpse who provided a widow to his wife and another weapon to the shooter.

Re: Florida shooting

It seems that we are in vigorous agreement.

If guns made people safe, then the US would the safest nation in the first world. Instead, it has the highest homicide rate.

Ironically, the US...

Re: Florida shooting

But there are fictional characters in films and on TV who are able to save everyone. Why couldn't the cop have been like one of them?

Re: Florida shooting

It's the followers of the GOP who have jumped the shark.

The problem is with the fascists and their enablers, not with me. Complacency is a form of enabling.

Re: Florida shooting

Sorry if the truth offends you.

If it isn't obvious by now that Trump is a bigot leading a party of bigots, then I'm not sure what it's going to take. Do they have to fire up the ovens before we...

Re: Latest on ACA / Obamacare

I have zero expectations of Republicans ever being honest about anything, but ACA was in effect a national version of the Romneycare plan in Massachusetts.

As in Mitt Romney, the GOP nominee in...

Re: Florida shooting

You need to learn about Lee Atwater.

The GOP talks in code. When it talks about guns and crime and welfare, it's really about blacks and minorities.

The Republican Party is a racist party. It...

Re: Florida shooting

If you don't like bigoted gun owners, then just say so.

If you won't separate yourself from them, then I'm not really interested in your excuses.

The reality is that the GOP uses guns to...

Re: Florida shooting

What's hilarious is that you aren't upset at all with the GOP and their obviously bigoted overlord.

Instead, you're upset with me.

I've given you ample opportunity to denounce GOP racism. ...

Re: Latest on ACA / Obamacare

ACA was an attempt to create a bipartisan plan, given that the Heritage Foundation and Romney had already endorsed this sort of thing.

That was naive. The GOP would have opposed anything proposed...

Re: Florida shooting

If you hang out with bigots, then don't be shocked if one presumes that you are one, too.

If you can't take personal responsibility for something as simple as that, then no one should trust you...

Re: Florida shooting

The GOP is full of white bigots who use "Chicago" and "Detroit" as euphemisms for black crime.

The leader of their party slurs minorities at every turn while claiming that there are good white...

Re: Florida shooting

Because gun talk is really about blacks.

The white identity Republicans are motivated by their fear of blacks. From their standpoint, it's better for those kids to die than it is for them to be...

Re: Florida shooting

Libertarianism isn't very complex.

It can be summarized as follows: "I take pride in the fact that I don't give a f**k about what happens to you."

Re: Florida shooting

Gun ownership two centuries ago was not so common. Guns were expensive and unreliable, with high odds that the gun would harm who was using it.

Guns become more common in the 20th century when...

Re: Florida shooting

Your "I know you are but what am I?" whataboutism is straight out of the playbook of a six-year-old.

Adults won't be impressed. Sorry.

When gun owners online respond to mass shootings such as this by attacking the survivors for being angry or by peddling their guns as sacred, then they sound like narcissistic sociopaths.

Gun owners on the internet come off as religious fanatics. Zealots who failed any statistics class that they...

You're not doing your side any favors. Frankly, you sound like a guy who should be restricted to slingshots made for kids.

The US has the highest homicide rate in the first world. So thanks for...

Re: Florida shooting

The irony is that I used to mildly oppose gun control until I started reading pro-gun comments online.

There are almost zero instances when I read them and think, "Gee, I'm sure glad that the guy...
