Incredible as it seems, Republicans are getting their knickers in a twist over potential gun control legislation. One in particular, Steve Stockman of Texas, is talking impeachment because he says that Mr Obama is over reaching and messing with the 2nd amendment rights of Americans. But is he? If Mr Obama simply re-institutes a previous ban on assault weapons, is he over reaching? Personally, I don't think so. And certainly the mood in the country is more favourable to gun control in light of the Newtown murders.

I guess we'll just have to see how it all shakes out.

Talk and more talk - with a hope to begin even more Internet rumors that some will believe, contrary to any factual evidence.

Has the time finally come when Americans need to rise up and physically eject the corporate drones from their seats of power?

That's such bull$hit..there already Was a ban on assault weapons, that CONgre$$ allowed to Expire - yet made sure the Patriot Act didn't expire, so they could keep an eye on everyone they were selling weapons to!

Stockman is an embarrassmsent. We desperately need common sense gun control. Let's hope Obama really does do whatever it takes to get this done...finally!

I re-read what I wrote and concluded that it could be misinterpreted. The particular drone to which I refer for the purpose of expulsion from government in this case is Stockman.

Can't have their way only...WTF ?! .What an immature idiot this guy is. What is it about the GOP/rightwing that they must elect menatlly ill and or the most immature people ? I bet this guy starts talking 'divorce' everytime his wife doesn't agree with him ...if he has one..which is difficult to imagine anyone being married to such a childish mindset as this guys.

I think Mr. Stockman's rectal sphincter has tightened around his neck and the blood supply to his brain has been cut off. Read, viewed and noted.

Jae A., are you from the Bronx? that was well put, WTF!
This guy seems like the poster child for "Why are we becoming more, and more polarized?" Because, as John B. intimated, more and more people are loosing blood flow to the brain.

Oh John - what a horrible (yet irresistibly funny) cartoon your post conjured up! Help - must think of something else!

It looks as if the Repuglicons are doing their usual misinformation to inflame the dim-witted twits who voted for them again.

Since the threats of impeachment of Nixon, only Clinton...and now Obama, have been threatened with impeachment. Bush should've been impeached. So, it seems the threats are coming every few months over some issue or other. I am so tired of it. I wish they'd just shut up and get to work.

He obviously doesn't know the way the articles of impeachment work, still it is a pretty low thing that he is doing it so Americans can carry military hardware so what he is really saying is that he would rather have guys with concealed weapons, shooting unarmed people in the back and spree shootings of children than some sensible gun control, demonstrates the sheer stupidity of the man.

Rachel Maddow had a really good segment last night, about "trolling." It covers this situation well: He's probably not serious, it's just a way to get media attention.

The 'funny' thing is, Prsident Obama is actually INCLUDING the demands made by the NRA for guns in schools (for those who want them - not enforcing guns for all schools)

So now he is facing impeachment by them for doing what they demanded?

Nice example of genuinely constructive thinking.

Hey, troll....over half your list was executed under BUSH not Obama. But it made for a good laugh for me so thank ya! I'm still giggling about Obama's secret life as a homosexual....which, if he were, technically (I know, I know, y'all just hate facts and technicalities but hey, who cares, right) he'd be a bi-sexual and on top of that ... who gives a rabid assed damn about his sexuality....oh wait....all you homophobes still do. Grow the **** up.

Debra...a big ol DUH for one is talking about taking away anyones so called 'gun rights' ..people simply want safe regulations for all Americans when it comes to their owners and the types sold. Wake up and turn you tv channel to something other than a FoxFakeNews talking head or the rightwing talking head programs like Rush and Beck ...maybe then you'll understand what this as well as a lot of other facts are when it comes to U.S. politics, is my suggeston to you.

Do you mean protect or do they kill in reality Debra G. ? Just ask'n....

Stockman is just another bully big mouth who thinks pieces of metal are more important than people. Funny how these guys scream second amendment all the time - wonder if they know any of the others?

I cannot believe President Obama has not went off the deep end, All the games that people are playing than want to blame the President for not accomplishing more, Hats off to President Obama, He is strong, intelligent, and I believe he has the public's best interest at heart. Just one more reason for me to avoid Texas.

What a jackass this man is. But I have no doubt that if there's any way possible, the republicans will indeed try and impeach the president. It would not surprise me one little bit.

Stockman is just another right wing sell-out to special interests. Ho-hum. Fortunately, his day has come and gone. The republicans have only been able to get the attention of voters when they rant and rave like lunatics. So, Stockman is determined to be more than a one term idiot this time out. Thus, he is ranting and raving like a lunatic. Unfortunately for him, this does not set him apart in any way from the other right wingers in Congress and the House.
Memo to Steve Stockman:
That hate Obama meme is getting sooooo old now. Waste of energy, Steve. We are not impressed. We have heard it all before. Now you are just going to have to be crazier than suggesting that the president be impeached because you don't like him. I have a suggestion. Why don't you claim that Obama is an alien probe from a galaxy far, far away?? Or you could demand that women lose the right to vote. That should get the media attention that you crave so much. It should make you the darling of the travesty known as the GOP.

Where do I sign. to impeach.... Too bad no one cares about the illegal guns and Gangs that run guns killing kids in Chicago and other cities , for many years.

Patrice M (84)
Friday January 18, 2013, 4:10 pm
Right. No one cares. Just the NRA wackos and all the manufacturers of armor piercing bullets and 100 clip magazines; who want those gangs to invest their drug money in the latest in assault weaponry, because hey, profits are the number one priority. I mean, how can you continue to buy republican congressmen to do your bidding without huge profits?

Stockman is trying to get more media attention, but with such nonsensical statements as impeachment he is making himself look like he needs to sign up for luminosity - 'cause he needs to learn to operate his brain properly.
Thanks for posting Lynn.

Details of the indictment has been ommited by Larouche but he characterized them as probably the greatest indictment he has ever seen placed upon a standing president throughout history. Watch the first 5 minutes of the video to hear this explosive news. WOW!
