Obama is simply a liar.  He has previously supported ever single gun control law that came his way, including a complete ban on handguns.

The idea that control of the population's access to guns is beneficially linked to violent crime is one of the biggest political frauds of our lifetime.

After trillions of dollars and manhours spent, the government has absolutely no control over the possession or easy flow of illegal narcotics.  Assume for a moment that a ban on guns and the ensuing war on guns would be equally successful, this means that at least 50% of highschool students would have easy access to guns.  Career criminals would have no problem obtaining them.

In fact, this is what we see in places that have instituted strict gun control: total violent crime increases.  This includes at least DC, Chicago, England, and Australia.

It is simply a fraud perpetrated by ultra-liberals and peacenik idealists.  Notably, over 40,000 people die every year as a result of DUI, yet none of you would support a ban on alcohol.  Guns are related to only 30,000 deaths per year; less than 15,000 if you exclude suicide.  Even if you make the extremely egregious assumptions that criminals will become law abiding without access to guns, that they will in fact not have access to guns, that suicidal people will not jump off buildings or use simple and painless household cleaners as they do in Japan, there is still absolutely no reason to pursue a ban on guns before a ban on alcohol.

The "right to bear arms" is a mythology nurtured by many millions of Americans and by powerful political interests. This ugly, trigger-happy side of America cries for tighter weapons laws.

In 1791 the new American constitution was amended with the following words: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." This amendment was drawn up by people living in an precarious agrarian society unrecognisable to modern Americans, when communities needed guns to hunt and to protect themselves from Indians and highwaymen. We don't need guns anymore today to protect ourselves.

Right, because police are always there to keep us safe and we don't ever need to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our property, or those in our care from various rapists, burglars, thieves, carjackers, or other thugs and sickos.

Russians (and their Eastern European buddies) are uncivilized people who are unable to live under democracy -- they just can not see themselves building a normal society. Their people are lazy drunkards and thieves, who refuse to work and honestly but constantly complain about their salaries. Eastern Europeans are passive individuals, weary of change, unaccustomed to lofty motives, and prone only to deviant and deeply individualistic actions. Their vision of themselves borders on fantasy. They suppose without grounds, for instance, that their people are highly spiritual, hospitable, and ready to make sacrifices for others -- in reality they may easily be characterized as zoo animals.

Are you kidding? Because if you are, you should lay off the jokes because you are terrible at being funny. If you are not, then you should lay on the antifreeze and do the world a favor.
Man, there are some creepers out there...

Well, Diana's own mother called her a "whore." She didn't like the fact that her daughter had had romances with Muslim men. This was before the princess' romance with Dodi Fayed. Shand-Kydd said that Diana was "a whore and that she was @ # ! * i n g around with Muslim men."

Damn, that's harsh.  Especially considering that would make her the mother of a whore and the princes of England sons of a whore.  Ouch
When a candidate faces the voters he does not face men of sense [but] a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion. As democracy is perfected the White House will be adorned with a moron.
