Well, my point was more of "hey there's some crazies out there" gun, knife, bombs...they'll use whatever so why are so many people hung up on only guns?

If someone was going aggro in public, would you be a cowering pussy or would you go rambo on his ass and shoot a flaming bullet down his throat? Simple question.
Sales tax is local tax, not Federal
Jay wrote:The concept of sales tax is ridiculous anyway. The money being spent was already taxed when it was earned, and then it's taxed again when it's spent.
Yes, unlike the other companies which have decided their new product lines will be restricted to bigger SUVs.
Jay wrote:No, it wasn't the primary goal, but it is one of the consequences. Obama picked the CEO, a CEO that had no experience in the automotive industry, and immediately GM started pumping large amounts of money into the Volt. The government still owns 32% of the company, even after the stock issue, so if you don't think they influence decision making...
KEN-JENNINGS wrote:While I don't agree with this professors stupid idea, you guys are showing your own ignorance if you think the GM bailout was to instill a politically palatable CEO and push a green objective. Don't be so fucking stupid, Jay
I think they did - usually these are funded by bonds that are approved by the local election. Payments for interest and principal usually come from increase in property tax.

Well, seems like a bad idea to go to war just to end the government.

Well again...he is saying he supports the organization in the commercial which is pro-life. He isn't telling YOU to be pro-life.

Again you missed the point. The US GOV'T has to change its mindset to do this properly. You guys already got it figured out so it's no big deal.
