Paul Ryan distances himself from Humanity.

I hate to overuse this, but it works to set up this post...I recently tweeted this about the 2nd Amendment.


If you've noticed, Republicans are always protecting their supposed constitutional right to buy or not buy things, like big gulps, pigtail light bulbs, bump stocks, contraceptives, wedding cakes...etc.

All's well, Paul Ryan Defends doing nothing, and Buying Assault Weapons:  It would be easy to called Ryan a soulless ghoul...okay, I'm going to reign it in a little. But really, how can anyone act like he does, so cold, calculating, unemotional...so untethered to real world suffering? Maybe he's proving that someone can act out and become that greedy fictional character in an Ayn Rand novel? Note to Ryan: There are now an additional 17 people who's rights have been denied, forever:
Ryan: "We shouldn't be banning guns from law abiding citizens....so what we want to do is protect peoples rights while making sure people who should not get guns do not get guns."
How has that worked so far? 


The Real Second Amendment Argument Ryan avoids...: I was fascinated by MSNBC's legal chief Ari Melber's piece on the Second Amendment that clearly exposes the vacuousness and mindlessness of just spewing out that old line, "we're protecting our Second Amendment right to bear arms." Melber has never been one to step out on a limb with a controversial opinion, so this means something. A must see:

Hey libtard. The second amendment has nothing to do with commerce.

Also, your rights do not come from a piece of paper or government.

You should be required to take a civics test in order to lie to people with this level of idiocy.

True, 2nd Amendment doesn't have anything to do with shopping or your choice of arms. It just says you have a right to bear arms, not shop for a variety of arms. I don't know what your point is since that's just what I said.

Second, the Constitution does not give you rights, it's supposed to protect them. But your right to bear arms doesn't come from God either, like in "I have a God-given right...blah, blah, blah. Again, I don't know where your pulling this out of, yours or someone else's ass, but contribute or reframe from name calling.

Are you saying military style weapons were not used in the American Revolutionary war?

What part of "...the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" do you not understand?

The Constitution is a piece of paper that recognizes your rights and is supposed to be a check on Federal power and centralized government.

It needs to be obeyed. Not interpreted.

And actually my rights do come from God. They come from beyond this world and that is exactly why they are rights. They are natural and we are all born with them. A privilege on the other hand came from this world and is granted by man.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

I posted a story about the damage a high-velocity bullet makes compared to a guns low-velocity bullet. Massive difference, and massive damage. You don't have a right to buy any kind of "arm." Your simple-minded NRA talking point seems to gloss over any possible detail that might not agree with what you are told to think. "It needs to be obeyed" is sheeple talk.

God did not create the gun. It's is not referenced in the Bible, and it is not a right. 17 dead in Florida dispute your claim of pursuing happiness, a right they lost forever. Your cruelty is here for all to see "anonymous." Use your real name coward.

You're the sheeple dingbat. You're so dumb you still believe everything the fake news tells you.

If the state can have them, so can the people.

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country."
