I believe that I detect a pattern...when it is Republican it is flip-flop. When it is Democrat it is evolving. Somehow evolution is sanctioned, flipping is vilified. Uh, how does such hypocrisy survive and thrive? 0bama's Basij, aka MSM, promotes, supports, and endorses this behavior. Reid will skate. ACA is a stew, it is still cooking, "The Secretary shall determine....." ACA, aka, RobertsTaxEvolving. Forward. Math is coming.
Is anyone going to bother to read the whole section. It looks like it limits the Feds only in connection to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by
See page 39 and 40 in the pdf or pages 20 and 21 as numbered.
Just like politicians to stick things in bills that don't belong there. 2nd amendment protection has nothing to do with Obamacare, but Reid stuck it in there so we'll take it.
It'll just be a "bump in the road" for Obama to go around it. Dems are playing with fire.
When, oh when will these hypocritcal government types surrender every weapon THEY have in compliance with their precious king oops I mean president? If Obama hates guns so mch let him be the first to disarm every government offical first and then broadcast it and call Congress and every government builsing a complete un free zone meaning no one there has a weapon! Hey it works so well for schools and guns are so evil, let the dems lead by example like they did with America's nuclear disarmanent, nukes are bad nukes kill unless it's cancer pateints then the badness and killing and radiation is ok right?! And s disarmin will get us fried qicker by other country's weapons, oops I mean et other countries to disarm too! (gigle snort) still can't say that with a straight face. How 'bout it Obama? Everyone should be happy with you because you gave them their free cell phones to re-elect you so get rid of YOUR guns and weapons of any kind!
Please do explain your bigotry, we are dying to hear it!
Let us change the word "Mormon" for "Man", yep still bigoted!
You see your argument has nothing to do with facts, it is a distraction, a change of subject.
Just to remind you debra, the story is about harry reid. “The Senate majority leader’s views on gun control are changing. He’s in a different place than he was in 2010,”. In other words he was for the 2nd amendment before he got elected and became against the 2nd amendment. I didn't see anything about being a Mormon!
Good ole little harry one can always count on him to do what is needed to get elected. I bet he had his fingers crossed during his endorsement from the NRA, so it really didn't count his being for the 2nd amendment an all...
Harry Reid is a Mormon. Looks like that White Horse prophecy may have some meat to it after all! Now we know why Roberts voted the way he did... HE is Mormon also!
Nothing to see her folks! Just another Liberal Hypocrite! This time it's Harry Reid! It appears he was for Gun Rights before he was against them! In that "Pass it so we can find out what's in it" ObamaTax it looks like ol Harry inserted some pork to prohibit the feds from collecting any info on lawful gun owners, but now all of a sudden he's against it!
Senator Harry Reid; a.k.a. Prince Harry.
A senile old fart that should be put far out to pasture, with nothing but a rocking chair.
One of the worst, if not the worst Senate Majority Leader in modern history!
you were just mentioned on Rush talking abou this article. i hope you realize what a big impact you have made! :D
This regime is intentionally inciting eventual police action against law abiding citizens. So even if they choose legal trickery, including executive orders, or even repeal of the Second Amendment to do that, it does not change their motivation nor what will ensue.
This is all going to get more dangerous and as it does, we have to keep paramount that the Second Amendment does not give us the right to bear arms - the Second Amendment prohibits the Federal Government from interfering with that right.
No matter what this regime does, no matter what channels they choose to persecute us through, Second Amendment or not..........we will always have the right to bear arms and to resist anyone who tries to take it away.
"criticisms of the idea of insurrection .... it will never get off the ground, or, it will destroy the country"
the insurrection must make it understood that the right to arms is ancient, as ancient as the right of self defense, and that it is part of our political heritage secured well before the creation of this nation. i was careful to say the right to arms is "constitutionally protected," and is not a "constitutional right" in the sense that the right was "created" by the second amendment, or its origins are in the second amendment. the origins of the right to arms is not in the second amendment, it did not create them, and they preceded the document: congress is prescribed from interfering with something that pre-existed congress. the right to arms precedes the second amendment, and goes back to the magna carta, and arises out of historical abuses in english history, when english catholics tried to disarm english protestants, and the protestants likewise tried to disarm the catholics some time later.
Wait a sec....if Obama issues an Exec. order...it will have to be worded very carefully not to be in conflict with the Obamacare Act AND the Second Amendment. This will be interesting to see how all this pans out. I guess it is time that SCOTUS will be visited again soon.
REID: "We need to accept the reality that we’re not doing enough to protect our citizens."
If you mean that we are not respecting the 2nd Amendment enough to allow our citizens to defend themselves against the criminally violent, then yes.
If you mean to say that gun free zones don't work, then yes.
Reid did an excellent job covering his butt with such a generic statement. He is correct, but what is he REALLY saying? :)
So, how is this going to work now? If Biden wants stricter gun control laws passed, will they have to kill Obamacare to get it through Congress? It will be fun to watch how they try and pull this law out of Obamacare, because now it IS law since it was already passed by Congress. And I doubt Reid either has the votes or really wants to pull this provision out of the Obamacare law. This problem couldn't happen to a "nicer" person. I hope Reid chokes on it.
The dems are well practiced in changing our vocabulary and the meaning of words to make it sound more benign to the uninformed.
DemSpeak is "evolving;" for everyone else it is "flip-flopping."
"Revenues," are "taxes" and any other way of separating the peasants from their own money.
and, What is the meaning of "is? "
So if it's not in Obamacare - why do we hear from so many people that their doctors ask them again and again if they own guns?
1st off, the 2nd Amendment doesn't need support from the federal government doing illegal acts. The federal government needs support to carry out illegal acts...
That said we should all get harry's goat and send him letters thanking him for adding additional protection to the 2nd Amendment in O'scare.
We should remind little harry that what he did with O'scare was to protect us against what he is attempting doing at this time!
Also included the question what does the term "infringe mean"?
verb [ trans. ]
actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.) : making an unauthorized copy would infringe copyright.
• act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on : his legal rights were being infringed | [ intrans. ] I wouldn't infringe on his privacy.
Finally we need to remind little harry that bad bills and crooked deals do have consequences!
I still don't understand why any kind of gun law regulation is in a healthcare bill. What else are we going to find in there? A repeal of term limits for the President? Support for an algae farm to feed their Unicorns? What?
REID: "We need to accept the reality that we’re not doing enough to protect our citizens."
Of course you're not. Do you even hear what you are saying, Harry? Try to listen to all the little voices in your head.
Reid is easy to explain; he has no convictions and only plays a role when running for election. Typical liberal behavior.
You have to love the word games that Libtards play
When a Republican/Conservative changes a position, he FLIP FLOPS!!
When a Democrat/Liberal changes a position, he EVOLVES! When he flips back, does he DEVOLVE??
This seems great on the surface. They make the laws though...it would be easy for them to make today's law abiding citizen tomorrow's law breaker.
Yes, it was very controversial among NRA members when they backed Reid against Tea Party candidate Sharon Engle. The NRA recognized Reid's power in Congress and his lifelong 2nd Amendment support; but in this narrow viewpoint failed to foresee his more damaging support of liberal justices...and more.
The Dems WANT power and so when that is your agenda conviction and positions can change with the wind. They confuse the word principle which means a fundamental doctrine or tenet* with the word principal which means first or highest in rank*. Who said they were the brightest bulbs in the chandelier?????????
*both definitions from dictionary.com
Harry Reid is a textbook politician and the lowest form of life: say one thing but do another. ANYTHING to win an election.
Ever "Evolving". Obama, Reid, Pelosi. The "Axis of Evil" redefined.
After watching that election, something makes me think that Reid wasn't worried about losing. I think that his biggest concern was how obvious the election fraud was.
You may be right...
I think he KNEW the unions would bus liars and cheats in to save his sorry, wrinkled butt.
Voter fraud is unbelievable in this country... I'd expect it in Iran or Cuba...
Leftists, liberals and Democrats can't win in a fair fight.
I don't remember all the details, but his relative was the state election official. He was losing in the polls by a bigger margin than the normal margin of error. There was more to it, but it likely came down to the vote counts getting flipped electronically.
I couldn't reply to your "don't kill me" reply. LOL, fear not, my Friend. But I do work in a building full of doctors and dentists and they we've got sneezing, coughing, weezing, sickos wandering in and out all day long.
My policyholders are the Good public. These sick people are the nasty public.
You are safe, I have made a New Year's resolution to not hurt any Scoopers. I plan on keeping this resolution.
Yeah, things have changed in medicine. I had two fused in 2001 which made me unqualified for the newer version they do now. They now use a teflon lazy susan type disc that only takes one or two months to recover from but since I'd already HAD a fusion I couldn't have that surgery. So, they went in and fused two more vertebra to the two already fused. Now I have a titanium plate with 4 screws on the front of C4-C5 and two titanium rods that go from C6-C3 with two screws per vertebra.
Total titanium count is one plate, two rods and twelve screws. I wonder if I could pawn them for some real money? But then I'd have to carry my head around.
Some years ago, my wife had a disc replaced. It had been approved in Europe for fifteen years before that, but the US would not allow it until then. Some people over there were having 3-4 discs replaced at one time, rather than fusing the vertibra. The new disc replaces the old, and is better in many ways than the original. The US decided that only one could be done at a time, and if you had two bad discs, you couldn't get the procedure. The surgeon who performed her procedure was the first in the area to do so. He had received special training to perform it. It is quite the awesome deal. It seems like every time that I turn around, I find something new that the AMA and our government is doing to keep us sick, injured, or dying. Just the fact that the Gerson therapy is illegal for a doctor to prescribe is telling enough, but why would a long time proven surgical procedure be limited or banned in the US? I guess that is what you get when your socialist government makes all the calls and uses force to control the population and their personal decisions. When I hear about people in your situation, it just ticks me off even more.
Yep, titanium and a bit stiff but I have more range of motion than you might imagine. People don't usually believe me in person until I show them the scar that runs from the base of my skull to between my shoulder blades.
No, pain will only worsen as I age. NO worries, tho. If it hurts, then that means that you are still alive.
So, if anyone calls you stiff necked, you could agree in a literal sense. :) Will the pain ever get better? I know that it takes a long time to heal fused vertibra. I assume that they use titanium and then cause the bone to grow together.
No worries. Thanks to the 4 fused vertebra in my neck and my pain management doc and his percocets, I'm pretty much always in a good mood anymore. Though I love the pills, I would not recommend the surgery. It sucked on a cosmic scale.
Anyone who thinks they understand pain, child birth included(I know this will draw fire) has NO IDEA what pain is until they fuse 4 vertebra in a single surgery. There isn't enough morphine on the planet to stop the pain and put you to sleep.
But now, I have the advantage of always being happy. OH, and I'm titanium armored in my neck. I'm a hajji's worst nightmare. Couldn't decapitate me with a frigging radial saw.
No worries. When you referred to working with the public and getting sick, my mind went straight to the TSA putting their hands down people's pants and then doing it to the next person without changing the gloves. Lots of people have complained about that.
I wanted to make sure that you didn't take that the wrong way. "Kill me" with words is all I meant. I should probably find better ways of putting things.
