I understand that you laugh off statistics, blame the shortcomings of blacks in our society on the system, and will likely never change... and that's both ignorant and unfortunate.

Sit here and make jokes amongst BJ and Brendan... taunt and tease me as a bigot and a jerk... continue demanding further government expansion and watch as the economy becomes less and less effective.. and celebrate as you drag down the average income amongst all those in the nation in the name of "fairness".

Obama has increased taxes, the deficit, unemployment, food stamp recipients, federal employees, state level public sector employees, household debt, and decreased take home pay, GDP growth, and energy production in virtually all areas.... And yet, you continue to celebrate his rare successes (I think killing osama was in the top 3 accomplishments of his previous 4 years)... You and others rally behind how "cool" he is... you joke about those who fail to see the successes that you do... All because you think you're somehow above those who disagree with you.

It's rather sad. And when the historians look back and label both W and Obama huge failures and huge proponents of the bloated government, you'll be stuck with the reality that you supported the man... at least I can rest assured knowing I heckled Bush for his errors.

The US will face another major crash during Obama's presidency.. and when it happens, you will look, once again, towards W... and once again, you'll be the fool.

What gun statistics do I ignore? 3% of gun violence resulted from 223 rounds and your party wants to ban AR-15s... How am I the one ignoring statistics?

I'll tell you who is overlooking and ignoring statistics... the same woman who can't tell you the difference between the first and second amendment.

What statistics am I overlooking? Or did you simply that would make for a nice insulting quip? There are many things that are "up for debate" but the current approach towards curbing gun violence is asinine to anyone LOOKING AT THE DATA. So it's a topic on which bringing up statistics will only serve to diminish your position.

When it comes to gun violence, you'd be better off slinging around that "chase wants to see more black gang bangers kill each other". That's a much more solid approach... (I say this in all seriousness as statistics do NOT favor your position at all)

You love to talk about the poor people killing themselves, but lets talk about kids why not? Not in our schools, try in our homes.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...oting/1775469/

Legal guns in homes increase the chance of murder/suicide with a firearm, Chase. Sorry you and your kids are more at risk

120 of the 181 firearm related deaths were from suicide... if it wasn't a gun, it would have been a knife or a 20 foot fall.

The irony of it all is that percentage is roughly the same across all ages (not just children).. and yet, anti-gun groups include all suicides when they discuss "gun related deaths".. as if getting rid of guns would have prevented those losers from offing themselves.

I have sympathy for the families impacted by suicide... but those pulling the trigger and ending their own life because they "can't handle the pressure".... fawk them and their weakness.

I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying that air travel can be stressful. Crowded flights rarely bring out the best in people, and that's why common courtesy is so important. If you've ever been on a plane where a parent blatantly disregards that courtesy and lets her little black kid cry his lungs out in the seat next to you, then you've probably been pretty aggravated, much as I was on a recent flight to Atlanta. And yet somehow-don't ask me how-for some reason I've come out of this whole episode as the bad guy. Yes, me. You know, as if that makes any sense at all.

Why? Oh, because apparently slapping a little ****** baby and telling him to shut up makes you some kind of monster in this day and age. Go figure.

Seriously, though, explain to me how I come out of this one looking like "the villain." What was I doing wrong? Sitting in my seat, drinking my alcohol, and minding my own business? I acted like a normal human being, and now I'm being vilified. Look, I have all the sympathy in the world for parents traveling with young children. I know it's no picnic. But if you can't get your child to behave, then I'm sorry, steps need to be taken. I mean, am I missing something here?

And man, you wouldn't believe the looks I got after I hit that ****** kid. Seriously, they were looking at me like I just totally lost my ****. Like I'd been the one crying, ruining the flight for everyone! No joke, these people turned on me so quick. On me! The good guy in this situation! It was one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen in my life: An airplane full of people looked at a screaming colored kid, and then looked at me-the guy who hit the kid, mind you-and they all decide to side with the colored kid. I couldn't believe my ****ing eyes.

Are you telling me if you were sitting next to this screeching little tar baby, you wouldn't slap him? Or at least call him a ****** and just tell him to shut up? Well, if you have that kind of restraint, then way to go, Mother Teresa! Good for you. But I think the rest of us mortals would have done exactly the same thing. And again, what exactly was wrong about what I did? That's right, nothing! I was doing the right thing! I was making the flight better for everyone!

In fact, why am I even explaining myself here? The ****** kid was and is the bad guy! Has everyone gone crazy or something?

And, look, obviously that **** flight attendant had it out for me from the beginning, so I can see how she might have turned a few of the passengers against me, especially the other ******s. Still, you would think a few of the non-****** and non-**** passengers on board would have come to their senses and defended me. Nope. Not one of them did. So now I got this negro kid bawling in one ear, a shrill **** clucking in the other, and 60 people looking at me like I'm Attila the Hun. I know, right? It makes no sense.

I lost my job over this, you know. I got fired. Until a few days ago, I was president of AGC's Unitech Composites and Structures unit. Over 20 years of expert stewardship. But, oh, slap a ****** baby and suddenly two decades of loyalty and professionalism go up in smoke. Now I'm collecting welfare like a ****ing spic. Can you even begin to wrap your mind around how retarded that is?

The thing that really kills me, though, is how unnecessary all this attention was. This whole thing wouldn't have gotten so out of hand if the goddamned Jew-controlled media hadn't slipped it into their 24-hour news cycle, the little ******s. That's right, the greedy Jewish media vultures just swooped in and made sure that I looked like some kind of monster. Me: a decent, normal guy on his fifth bourbon, trying to enjoy his flight.

Well, now it's all over and my life is ruined. I hope you're all happy, folks, because the real tragedy of this whole unfortunate episode is that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Depressed people should buy a gym membership, turn off their television, and get a hobby. If even that can't help them, so be it... but limiting civilized, law-abiding citizens rights to guns because of depressed losers... now that's just not logical.

<--- Does NOT think you can limit someone from killing themselves regardless of what you ban.

Fair shot? WHAT!? So you level the playing field for all children? Is that your notion of fair? So parent A works their ass off to give their child a solid upbringing and is expected to just accept that they can't do so?

I'm sorry but you're pushing for pure communism/socialism at this point. State enforced equality

Where on earth did I attack anyone because of their race?

As for "not addressing this", it was at the bottom of a prior page and I didn't go back to look over every post.. have better things to do. Like earn a paycheck to pay for illegals healthcare.
