Guns, F-16s and tanks

How many of you are paying attention to what the president is doing? He seems so concerned about getting guns into the wrong hands and is building pressure to keep law-abiding citizens from getting firearms. Yet at the same time, he authorized a transfer of F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. How can anyone go along with that idea? Putting weapons in Jihadists hands? What is going on? We better wake up, Americans.

IRS forms

This is to the person who asked why people would go to stores to buy IRS forms. I don't believe people are buying IRS forms at the office stores. They are buying software to do their taxes. You don't have to go to the IRS to pick up forms; you can download them to your computer.

I'm in the "Don't blame me crowd" too. I still proudly display my Romney/Ryan sticker. We tried to warn people before 2008. After 4 years of the imperial president, he was re-elected. It's like urkel, "Did I do that?"

Presidents for the last 30 years have sold (given) weapons to Iran, Iraq, Isreal, Pakistan, Eqypt, Saudi Arabia, and the list goes on . . .many of whom were our enemies at the time. This is just another fiasco by the executive branch . .

Wheels, I may be wrong, but I think 46% of Missourians voted for Obama. Where did you get your information that the entire state voted against him?

-- Posted by exmissourian on Mon, Feb 11, 2013, at 10:23 AM

I don't know how that Obama won

I haven't heard his praises sung

His supporters seem mighty slim.

I don't know anyone who voted for him!

I know some in SO support him to the max

but I wonder if they even pay tax?

Don't understand how the numbers were reached

I believe he should be impeached!

Rominey, Ruin (Ryan) you still lost.

We all lost - you just don't realize it yet.

The Pope has announced his retirement. The first to do so in 600 years.

Guns, F-16s and tanks,

Governments have always needed instability in their countries to grow the state. They need instability in the world to grow an empire.

Wheels: Obama has got at least one of the qualifications of being Pope since he doesn't make any mistakes.....infallible.

-- Posted by semo471 on Mon, Feb 11, 2013, at 2:50 PM

Dissident,don't you know Obama wants to be everything to everyone so being a Muslim Pope is not that far a stretch.

Dexterite. We all lost - you just don't realize it yet. -- Posted by Spartan301 on Mon, Feb 11, 2013, at 10:44 AM

The saddest part? Dexerite does realize it. But he doesn't care as long as he gets his take. To hell with the country and our kids - "me first" democrats.
