  • Obama suggests Republicans unwilling to compromise in gun control debate.

    President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun control appear neither willing to work with him nor inclined to listen to the American public on the issue.

      Liberals dont get it that the house stayed in republcan hands to put a leash on obama.   As for the redistrict thing ,,, both parties do it.   its the perk you get from winning.   Little whiney ass obama thinks he is king.

    Moon: Compromise is what you do when you have no core set of beliefs. This is why many politicians are so willing to do so.

      No, compromise is what you do when you are member of Congress. Look it up. The meaning of Congress.

      What those tea party ****************************s are doing is strictly parliamentary behavior. You know, like the Euro-socialists. They don't have to compromise.

      EVERY economic transaction is a compromise.  Capitalism is BASED on compromise...that's what Supply and Demand is.  You can stand on your core set of beliefs that, say, Gasoline shouldn't cost more than $1.50/gallon and stand on your principles....but you'll have no gas.

      You can say that YOUR house in a neighborhood is worth double what your identical neighbors' houses are selling for, and refuse to compromise...but you won't sell your house.

      Capitalism is built on compromise, going all the way back to Adam Smith's and David Ricardo's trade models. Don't you believe in Capitalism?

      Compromising really means both sides prioritizing what  they want and need and giving up those things that are lower priority to get what has higher priority.  Negotiation is trying to give up as little as possible to get the most you can.  Like any economic arrangement, you can walk away, but you won't get what you want, even in part.

      "Checks and Balances" REQUIRE compromise to work.  Because each arm can say "No" and bring the system to a halt.  Congress, the Senate and the President are not elected to ensure nothing gets done and the government is paralized.

      There's no reason for law abiding citizens to "compromise" on their 2nd amendment rights, they're not the problem.


      All of the sob sister anti-gun people, assuredly including the O.P., want somebody to "make everybody be good", which is impossible.

      We need strict enforcement of laws against illegal gun related behavior, not laws against guns. And you can't legislate behavior on the part of lawbreakers, they ignore the law.


      I believe that better quality N.A.C.'s are called for, and wouldn't have a problem with a training/licensing requirement, but that IS a compromise, isn't it?


      What he's really saying is "They won't give me everything I want and give up their rights."


      **************** him, in this case.

    Go ahead and compromise what you believe in. Just don't expect everyone to be willing to do the same.

      No. That's not how progress happens. Or do you prefer we still live in the caveman days? The 60's also have come and gone.

    Moon: If "progress" can only be achieved by additional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms then no....I'm not interested in whatever you view as progress.

      Rogue: Yes....its what they do, mainly because they believe in little if anything other than being reelected.

      And make no mistake.....if not for losing the votes of their constituents, they'd be all too happy to compromise on the RKBA.

        They vote for whomever Hate Radio and Fox News tells them to vote for, and you know it.

            Hmmm... By the numbers, the bulk of gun related murders are committed with handguns in urban centers of greater than 250,000 people. Yes, let's ban AR-15s.

                If you "believe" our system of government doesn't REQUIRE compromise, you're wrong.  It's a REQUIREMENT, not an option. I love how you bozos wave the flag and **************** on it at the same time with no clue what you're talking about.

                That government GIVES you those rights as defined by THEM. YOU don't get to define them, and you start out with none. All you're doing is whining about what you want and pretending it's a right as defined by you.

                What the hell do we need people like you for in this country?

                When you join a "well-regulated militia" you'll have the RIGHT to keep and  bear arms.  Till then, it's a privalege, not a right.
