Doubters still await warming evidence

Hoax Tom may have missed:
Iraqi WMDs (and that one was pretty costly)
******

Flock, ask the thousands of Kurds who were gassed (a WMD, right?) by Saddam if the Iraqi's had WMDs. Just because we didn't FIND any doesn't mean they didn't have them, were capable of making them again and more than willing to use them on innocent people.

It's like 100 people see Flock shoot someone, but they can't find they gun. Does that make you innocent of the crime?

The logic of the people who say the Iraq war was wrong and use the WMD example never ceases to amaze me. The war may be wrong, but use a better example.

George Carlin always had a simple, funny & effective way of getting to the truth.

Would you like to see the local anti-smoking ordinance overturned?

Well I would like to go to the bar, have a beer and NOT smoke a cigarette.

This is really overreacting. Smoking is not gross. Watch films from the 40's, 50's, and 60's with Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Elizabeth Taylor or Marilyn Monroe smoking. Were they gross? No.

Clark had horrendous breath, according to Vivian Leigh. If you had smelled the early morning butt breath of any of these glamorous stars after a night of puffing, you'd say "gross". eyeech

Well, I'm for what you said, but there are a lot of a-holes in this world that don't see it that way. As far as I'm concerned it's other people that need the rules, not me (or maybe you), but I don't think it'd work that way.

That's right mister, outnumbered by stupid people. Let the stupid people do what they want, whenever they want and to whomever they want.

You want to live in total anarchy? A state of complete lawlessness & political disorder?

You'd both last an hour.

gogo....you mean like paying taxes? driving the speed limit? car insurance? There's already plenty of mandatory crap (as you put it). If mandatory means fewer rapes, burglaries & murders, significantly fewer, what's to lose?

In Dodge City, back in the peak of the Old West cattle days there were something like 4 people killed in one year. That seemed like not much for everyone walking around armed until we compared it to today's NYC crime rates per capita......Dodge was double the murder rate.

Ya jes neveh know.

It would be nice to see mandatory gun ownership among those who can legally own firearms in cities like Washington, Chicago & New York, just to see what would happen to the crime rate. I don't think it could get any worse. The downside might be that criminals might just shoot first knowing you might be armed.

But as beatrice pointed out, in most crimes involving a firearm the firearm is not used, so the perps are willing to rob, but don't want to step up to murder.

Kennesaw, Georgia made it "mandatory" to own a firearm in 1982 and the crime rate dropped 71% in one year and continued to drop years thereafter. I don't think that people were forced to buy firearms, but the publicity associated with this unusual law caused criminals to migrate to greener pastures. Did the general media pick up on this unusual story? No, because they want everyone to believe that guns are evil.
