    Im Back.

    Haven't been around in a minute. How's everyone been? What's new?
  3. The hot coffee case is eternally mocked, but the coffee was way hotter than it should have been been. It was served at 190F when the optimal temperature for those who like it hot should be around 175F and 155 for your average customer. The lady spent 8 days in the hospital and had 2 years of medical treatment. Yes coffee is hot, but it shouldn't be so hot that a spill results in hospitalization.

    Dr. Ben Carson for president?

    Probably because we treat our politics like a sport.

    Bipartisan gun control measures rejected in senate

    Because the 2nd amendment is a last resort defense against a tyrannical state. When the state seemingly handicaps its populace while making itself more powerful in comparison you can quickly see how this becomes a problem. The 2nd amendment wasn't put in there purely so hunters had an effective way to kill deer.

    So a patriot - aiming for the well-being of the country - would like law enforcement as defenceless as possible...isn't it borderline schizophrenia? I see nothing wrong with a child being allowed to use a rifle under parental supervision. This obviously wasn't the case. Should we ban them because some people are irresponsible? How about knives? I'm sure plenty of children have killed themselves or another with those too. How does not having military grade equipment equal being defenseless as possible? Did we really need dozens of military grade humvees, armored gunner trucks, and 1000's of military geared officers to chase down 2 teenagers? I mean at that point call the national guard. Did we really need to fire like this into a boat? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjzwphcj0OM

    Because tyrants thrive on the excuse of safety when stripping away rights as they have for hundreds of years. They also thrive on the populace having a it can't happen to us mentality. Both exist in US politics. Because the majority will walk off the edge of a cliff if it guarantees a little protection along the way. It's one of the main reasons the US is a republic and not a direct democracy. Yes because Australia became a fascist state, stripped of democratic principles after their gun laws in the 90s. Again, the whole "OMG, fascism" BS. The same thing was said in Australia during the bitter debate on gun control there and yet, lo and behold, they haven't gone the way of Moa yet! The US is a representative democracy. The legislative is supposed to REPRESENT the will of the people, not the angry, load and paranoid minority. It's damned better than worshipping the bloody NRA. I'm not sure if you've been paying attention but the civil liberties of Americans have been repeatedly trampled on since 9/11 and safety is used as a rationale every single time. They feel like they should have the ability to wiretap our phones without a warrant. Snoop through our emails. Demand records from anyone we have business with. Snoop through hundreds of homes without warrants. Slap GPS monitors on our vehicles. So on and so on. So no Australia didn't turn into a facist despot, but Australia also hasn't been increasingly eroding civil liberties. Not a god damn month goes by in the US where we don't hear a new story of the US government taking a massive shizzle on the constitution and our civil liberties. So we'll be damned if we'll have our weapons handicapped repeatedly while police departments have arsenals of military equipment.

If I don't need an assault rifle neither do they. You don't see them giving offering to give theirs up though now do you? Hell in fact many are lobbying for off duty police exemption.

    HUGE fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas

    From the huffpo source. Now I can't argue definitively that a fire wasn't preventable but chemical fires in factories do happen. Sorry if the debate got a little heated by the way. All in all I think we need more information before jumping to conclusions.

    HUGE fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas

    Do you have a source for that? They had 540k lbs of ammonium nitrate. I doubt a factory would be able to hold only roughly 400lbs. Especially when the EPA was aware that they stored that amount in 2012. @Arianna this factory was on the outskirts of town. Zoning it in an industrial district would of resulted in it killing much more people than it did. Potentially leveling out the rest of the district. Zoning it out into the middle of no where would of resulted in a huge waste of land. This is assuming that the city didn't build itself around the fertilizer plant to begin with. All you had to do was type in how much ammonium nitrate did they have at the fertilizer plant in West, Texas. http://usnews.nbcnew...igger-oversight http://www.reuters.c...E93J09N20130420 http://www.nytimes.c...wanted=all&_r=0 I know it makes for good headlines but what exactly would the DHS would of done to prevent this? Especially when this information was already sent to several other regulatory agencies. They deal with terrorism and border control. They have nothing to do with chemical regulation. There is nothing that they would of done to prevent this. 3 different regulation agencies but that still isn't enough? How much more bureaucratic do we need to be? It's not that there's not people in place to take care of it's just that they didn't do their job, and since I know you'll ask for sources and won't bother to look for it yourself: http://www.theatlant...-decades/64469/ http://www.huffingto..._n_3134202.html http://www.dailymail...n-30-YEARS.html So adding another agency that deals with terrorism and border control would of obviously prevented any of this from happening. Got it. Lets ignore the fact that ammonium nitrate is a key ingredient in fertilizer and is going to be found in a fertilizer factory in massive amounts, and the fact that this was reported to the EPA and 2 other local regulatory agencies. The way everyone seems to be so shocked you'd assume that it was stored in some residential basement and not in a giant factory that uses it as a key ingredient. You're also making the unbacked assumption that this was caused by this factory running without oversight with little to back up the claim. There is not one article that backs up that this explosion was preventable or caused by negligence. Fires happen and even fires in highly inspected chemical facilities get bad quickly. Lack of oversight doesn't automatically imply that lack of oversight caused the explosion. From your huffpo article. Anything else is pure speculation. I simply asked for a source that this was the cause. Not one of your 6 sources makes that claim.
