When George Washington was required to show some ID..did he whip out a quarter? Why for the love of laughing is marijuana not legal? Why do Republicans hate Obama? Oh yes, he's black. The laziest people on Earth represent our government right now. Our government I believe has down syndrome. They can't even develop a website correctl...

the USA should have more background checkss while it may be disputed the exact number, the commonly cited stat is that ninety percent of people support background checks. there's plenty of potential here- over 40% of gun sales involve no background checks. at the point of sale, back ground checks stop tons of people.... http://www.timesdispatch.com/news/state-regional/stats-show-background-checks-are-effective/article_ac6626fd-8bf5-55d7-83cf-d464e379000a.html what about the idea t...

If somebody just wants to commit suicide because they feel like it, then I don't believe they should have the right to do so. However, if someone is in immense pain and at deaths door, then why shouldn't they be able to end their own lives? Is it not the right thing to do to let someone stop themselves from...
