If you don't like the club rules, start your own club. Perhaps a club that only allows homosexuals as club leaders to the exclusion of heterosexuals. Who cares? For people who claim to value diverstiy, leftist sure seem heck bent on coalescing us into one big non-descript melange of utterly boring likeness.

asb - what a load of hooey. You must be willing to do to your enemy worse than they would do to you, otherwise you ensure defeat. Ask Israel. Their doctrine has always been (paraphrasing), we kill 100 of yours for every one of ours you kill. How do you stop a religious fanatic from fighting? By ensuring no quarter in his perceived afterlife.

We could bomb these savages back to the 7th century if we wanted to, but we don't because we are a moral people and value their women and children. The enemy uses those same women and children as shields. How do you fight someone like that that calls on their religion as an excuse for their actions? Remove their reward.

Sequoia, do you honestly believe any action in this world could make a Marine's job in a Mohammedan nation more dangerous? Your ignorance of how the world works is dwarfed only by your sanctimony.

The headline should read, "Non-uniformed terrorist gets what he deserves after killing a Marine with an IED because he was too cowardly to face the Marine in an honorable engagement."

Not to get too snarky, but rj don't base your entire rant on an issue you misread in the story. It make's your rant about having more education not being an appropriate compensable factor seem really self serving.

Perhaps not spend more than we have? Maybe even spend less and pay down the debt? What radical ideas!!! This administration is drowning the country and asking for more buckets of water.

Additionally, and luckily our forefathers predicted this, the low information voters that decided the last election can have zero impact on the 2nd Amendment. The nation is still conservative at heart, just ask the majority Republican governors.

But I don't think they allow loaded .22s in the classroom anymore right? Maybe I'm mistaken.

Responsible gun ownership by the mother would have stopped the shooter, as well as armed security or armed teachers at the school (which is what the NRA advocates). Also, more stringent laws related to the treatment of mentally unstable people would have nipped this in the bud. Banning guns won't stop crazy overmedicated people from doing crazy incomprehensible crimes. Apply some logic to this one, don't knee-jerk.
