Re: Your opinion on US gun laws under Obama.

Never heard of them, I looked at "Russia Today" and "Moscow News" FYI. I think you have exposed yourself. You must be fairly young. Pravda was the official (and only) news source of the USSR for many years. Even after other media outlets were allowed in Russia, I think Pravda still had a website up...

Re: Your opinion on US gun laws under Obama.

This is the table of the medal count of the 2012 Summer Olympics, based on the medal count of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These rankings sort by the number of gold medals, earned by a National Olympic Committee (NOC). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and t...

Re: Your opinion on US gun laws under Obama.

I am answering my own question about how widespread the wrong way of counting Olympic medals are in American Media outlets. Lets see who can get it right, and who gets it wrong - It looks very convincing. Fox - Disqualified NBC - Disqualified Reuters - Gold Medal CBS - Unknown, the page doesn't dis...

Re: Your opinion on US gun laws under Obama.

I do have an un-related question from m0002a or any other Americans here. Why is it that America is the only country in the world that ranks the Olympic scoreboard by quantity of medals, rather than golds, and then silvers and bronze medals if there is a tie with gold medals.? This snippet of news ...

So does this mean that the US Supreme court can overrule the other parts and become a dictatorship, or put one in place. I don't see how that can happen.

Interesting. So you don't have human rights in your country, just the rights of US citizens. And declaring someone as "enemy combatant" without a trial or a judge or a lawyer present and thus depriving them of their human rights to have a fair and transparent trial is truly a nice trick. No US citi...

The US went through a period of communist witchhunts in the 1950's after the introduction of the Smith Act of 1940.
