There's some chance that the posters here aren't Chamber of Commerce Republicans. You just go ahead with the strawman arguments, there's a surefire endorphin rush that comes with.



There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

The Feds do this all the time with their stupid regulations. They also tell companies what customers they MUST serve.

If that's all you got from my post, you have serious issues with reading comprehension.

The US has a system of government. Might want to look that up. Its not an absolute monarchy.
Legally tweets hold no power so it really has no meaning, its just a tweet.

Correct. so Waldo Kitty is saying we need new laws on this that already exists so it doesn't get in.. But we don't need new laws on gun laws because laws already exist..

You all wonder why I hate both standard parties. The reason I'm more anti Republican is with them its my way or the highway type and I will expose it..

Because it's not the business of the State what private enterprise does.

You sound like Hillary.

I take it you are independently wealthy. Not all of us are, you know. My daughter and her husband just had a baby. I'm not wishing ill on them or anyone else, just to defeat Trump. He can be defeated in the usual ways. BTW, Obama won a second term after the recession of 2008-09!

No he doesn't, Waldo. The President has no authority to tell private companies how to run their business.

Would you be happy with President Warren telling gun companies they can no longer import their products?

What you're advocating is communism.
