    Well, it's not exactly information. Do you have any evidence to back up your assertion?

    Such a bullshit argument to not do anything to make guns safer. The slippery slope argument for most things is always bullshit.

    What's frustrating to me is that conservatives always say "enforce to laws on the books" (which is EXACTLY what he's doing) but then they handcuff him from doing that by defunding the ATF...

    It does not look that way to me. Trimmed back the agents some, after all he was running more than a trillion in deficit at the time. But it sure doesn't look like handcuff, about the same level as it was back under the prior administration.

    As you can see, there was no dollars cut back, just the number of actual agents on the job. Sort of looks like a management decision to divert the dollars to other uses. Perhaps Obama was lying to the people again.

    How come no one ever argues for serial killings? Is this a manmade phenomenon, or has it been going on for 6000 years? Such a one-sided thread.

    What the hell was Obama talking about last night, whining about Congress reducing funding his ATF team? Was the man just lying again?
    Why did he down size in 2012, with his dollars going up?
    Dollars went up a bunch in 2014 too, with hardly any more agent put to work?

    Even the sequester year is higher in dollars than his starting year?

    Anyone smell Bullshit?

    It's hilarious how you don't pay attention to your own people cutting the federal budget.

    Ha! OK dviss, I have a suspicion we could do this for days without finding a match. This will do.

    It's because people like my posts more than yours. Plain and simple.

    I know that's a hard pill for you to swallow but I'm a pretty sensible guy.

    You're arguing against a point that doesn't exist. That's called a strawman argument. Prior to your contrary belief, Your opinion is not the end all be all. My like count (not sure why you're hatin' on it tbh) isn't due to any "ass kissing". People just agree with my opinion MUCH more than they do yours.

    Well I don't expect them to agree with me, learning is difficult. But I can't see a fucking thing to like when you post, so that leaves kiss ass. And man, you have it mastered.
    Look at Denny, a zillion posts and only 2k likes, or KOR about your number of post and well liked at less than half your count. Faulty count or KA?
