For anyone who is interested and will to accept some education on firearms, here is a 7 minute video that will compare the scary AR-15 assault weapon to other common firearms and bullet calibers.

You might be surprised on how scary and powerful an AR-15 actually is.....

    Hmmm. Really ?

    What about bombs in your car. To you get anxious every time before you start your car ?

    ???

    I guess I might if I were living in the midst of a tetchy car bomber...which, living where I do, is certainly plausible.

    But my point was that the deranged sniper induces more terror in me personally than the deranged kid with his mom's semi and a Kevlar onesie. Look up Charles Whitman, the Beltway Sniper, the Arizona Sniper, etc., etc.

    Yes but a patriot with a concealed sidearm is just as much a target in that scenario so please don't bring it up. The pro gun community would appreciate it you would keep your focus on situations where an armed citizen (preferably a senior citizen) can take down a gun-toting hooligan, preferably one who has taken a beautiful young thing as a human shield.

    Fucking TERRIFYING:

    Operative qualifiers: DERANGED; CHARLES WHITMAN; BELTWAY SNIPER.

    Snipers within this context aren't protecting heads of state; snipers within this context do not usually make their positions known; snipers in this context do not clock in to work and fill out expense reports for target practice. Y'know?

    Anyway, the point I was originally trying to illustrate was that it's the knee-jerk, gun-illiterate harpies who seize upon buzzwords like 'assault weapons' when the fact is, Adam Lanza could have just as easily devastated Newtown if he'd employed a high-precision rifle from 500 meters away.

    I was just kidding that it sounded paranoid, as if you have some pretty bad enemies, if you are worried about snipers. But I get that you didn't mean that you really are personally afraid of snipers...

    That's right. And from my memory, he only needed 1 shot each time. How would restricting magazine capacity prevent that? Or restricting semi auto's? Or restricting caliber? Do you think Moderate Infidel will say we should ban all guns?

    I don't want to ban guns. Also restricting magazine capacity wouldn't stop a sniper, that is obvious. I was commenting on the fact that some of you are really frightened by snipers so I would assume you would want to do something to prevent them. So what are your ideas for stopping snipers?

    What Americans "need" done is really the entire crux of the debate about the size of government. Everybody has (and is entitled to) their own opinion. This process is called "democracy".

    Clearly not true, since there are people who voted for the spending.

    I'm a big fan of people who have no idea what the NIH does and blasts every dollar that they spend. Nevermind the millions and millions of people who would be dead or severely disabled without NIH-funded research. People who don't know anything about how research grants work just make me sad for America's future position in the world.

    Are you telling me that if those spending measures were brought to a popular vote by all Americans and the choices were;

    A) Approve the spending for those items

    Or

    B) Get the money back through a rebate check

    the majority would vote to approve the spending?

    Or do you admit it was probably just pork attached to another bill?

    Neither. The claim was that "everybody could agree". Obviously false.

    You know how many things every american votes on? Just one: Who represents them. That's how a republic works.

    I'm sure we can all agree that Americans don't "need" the following...!

    There is nothing on this list that I would not need more information on before making my knee-jerk reaction on if we should be spending money on it. It seems more like the kind of list that people who know don't know jack-shit about many-a-thing write to rile up and elicit emotional responses from people who also don't know jack-shit.

    Scagnetti says

    If they don't know "jack shit" about anything, maybe we should have a smaller government to minimize the damage they can do.

    So, what you are suggesting is that we replace the current set of people who don't know jack-shit, with another set of people who possible know even less jack-shit, but that agree with your imaginings on how a government should be run.

    No thanks.

    Could you elaborate on "significant interests" and connection of these interests with genital washing

    HIV causes instability. Researching ways to prevent it in countries like south Africa means more stability. South Africa is one of the few stable democracies in Africa. Its essential to us interests that it remains so.

    No we don't all agree with your list, and most of the "pork" you provided has cross economic purposes.
