    Just people understanding that we have to stop the madness and return to helping each other.
    Okay, so help. Seriously. Lotsa your fellow citizens are not interested in the continuation of your mischaracterizations of  the issues and your advocacy against them - against gun controls. Your fellow citizens want your help in proposing and implementing gun controls, rather than the obstructionism that you seem to propose over and over.

    Cheers.

    •  On second thought...when you label me as a (0+ / 0-)

      obstructionist that is stopping gun control advocates, you equate me to the Republicans.

      It's an intentional smear, thanks, flattery gets you nowhere with me! And you aren't here for constructive discussion when you play these games.

      I will fight against any measures that will empower future Republican control of the levers of our government.

      Gun control will destroy the Democratic Party for the next 100 yrs and I will not participate with your plans.

      It has already divided this nation to the point of people actually talking armed insurrection! "Obama's coming for your guns!" You're proving their meme correct!

      You do not wish to stop the slaughters if you naively take the position we will not lose total control by advocating gun control.

      WE CAN STOP THEM NOW, without bloodshed, constitutional amendments AND without dividing this nation even further!

      The gun violence is a symptom brought about by 30+ yrs of Republicanism that has destroyed our social safety nets!  

      Take responsibility for the millions you will sentence to death when they raise the age requirements for Social Security, (if they don't decommission it completely), When they raise the age for Medicare & destroy Medicaid.

      Take responsibility when they continue to cut the taxes for the most wealthy, increase their racist sentencing guidelines and then continue their unfunded wars.  WAR destroys the wealth of the masses!

      Take responsibility when more Americans fall through the cracks and become impoverished because of the Republican ideal of "free markets" that truly means their corporate sponsors are above the law and are too big to fail. Socialism for the wealthy and Capitalism for the poor!

      Take responsibility for the results your position will bring!

      NOW, if you want to call me an OBSTRUCTIONIST because I will fight you from destroying this nation even further, SOBEIT!

      /rant!

      OR we could actually talk solutions that will help those in need and stop the violence.

      •  you seem to have started with... (0+ / 0-)

        ...mischaracterizin' again, and then, as the expression goes, you're off in the high weeds.

        So, I'm gonna take this opportunity to remind you of your own suggestion...

        ...stop the madness and return to helping each other...
        Cheers.
        •  Pot met Kettle, your mischaracterizations are the (0+ / 0-)

          point here.

          And belie my actual position when you utilize it.

          But you did know that, a tactic you've used time and again.

          Have fun.

          •  belie: to show (something) to be false or wrong... (0+ / 0-)

            ...yes, I'm glad that you see that your position has been shown to be false or wrong.

            Folks often say that this is the first step to making changes, congrats!

            Cheers.

            •  Stop with the semantics, you undestood me (0+ / 0-)

              and if this continues, I will consider it stalking.

              Please cease and desist.
