    It'd be nice that if people are going to post stories, to follow the rules and actually post the story and not just the link.

    Is there a rule here on not posting links?

    If so, i will follow the rule here.

    But I almost always, on this board and others, post the link and not just copy and paste the article. I just thinks it fair to the writer of the article and to the original website.

    Thanks

    While Obama made every attempt during the campaign to shut up about guns, and the media aided him in not digging on the issue, it's known that Obama hates gun owners. He considers us an anachronism, and wants to ban or so heavily regulate what we do, that the number of 80 million goes down to maybe 8 million (if that).

    It's in all his actions in Illinois, and his states positions (before most of them were removed) from his website.

    His statement that we "cling to our guns" is one of many little hints that he has given of his contempt. This is why I refuse to call him the President of my country. You have to promise to uphold and defend the constitution. He is already trying to eliminate a big part of it. This attempt at governmental hiring apartheid (yes, I use that word for a reason), is just the beginning.

    Mr. Obama, I hope does something very bad (personal life, graft, corruption, simply a huge error) making him very unpopular very quickly. Because, otherwise it will take a long time to fix the havoc he will cause.

    When he won the election, I wondered if he would attempt a more moderate course, or a more extreme one. All his moves of late speak of a consolidation of power on the left end of the nation's political spectrum and a virtual block out of the right.

    Let's try to find anything and everything we can on him. He rose to power in the political cesspool of Chicago. His business dealings (especially concerning the Resko affair) appear less than on the up and up. We got to find something on him (there has to be), and paste him to a wall with it.

    There is a long thread about this application. I think that most of us concluded that the questions were not about discrimination, but avoiding embarrassment for the incoming administration.

    For example, this is pretty clearly the "Dick Cheney Question":

    I don't know how to cite other threads, but the title was:

    • Obama asks gun questions on his application for employment.

    I hadn't read that. Wow. That's a tad bit ridiculous.

    I did go and read the story. No wonder it's called worldnutdaily.

    There is no comparison between asking someone's religion (prohibited) and asking someone's status as a firearms owner (permitted). Nor we do know that if someone answered yes that this would automatically exclude him from a job.
    If someone doesn't want to answer the question he shouldn't apply for the job.

    This has a high likelihood of getting locked but I just wanted to add some sarcasm first:

    I'd be willing to bet he has a nice cherry gun safe with a collection that would make many of us weep.

    It's pretty easy to oppose gun ownership in order to help get elected to the white house; you're guaranteed protection from the secret service for the rest of your life. In fact he's probably surrounded by more guns at any given moment than most of us own.

    Um, I'd have to disagree with you there Bubba. It might be technically legal to ask that question , but it hasn't been done in the past, and is weird. What's more, it doesn't just ask "Do you own a gun?" It asks to provide a registration list. I seriously doubt it's legal for the government to ask that question.

    Why is it illegal?
    So what if it's "weird"? From Obama's perspective I guess it isn't weird. He can ask what he wants and he can hire whomever he wants, within legal limits. If he wants to eliminate gun owners from his hirees, he is free to do so. We didn't vote for him anyway.

    I didn't say it was illegal. I said it is weird, inasmuch that no President has ever put that on an application before.

    And as for a "He can hire who he wants" opinion, Obama is a government employee hiring other government employees. He isn't a private employer.

    He shouldn't be allowed to eliminate gun owners from his hiring process, anymore than Bush should have been able to hold off gays (based upon simply that factor. Doubt many queers voted for Bush).

    What's more, it sets a bad precedent. And, when the bans come, he isn't going to have any gun owners around to tell him why it's a bad idea. (Not that he would listen anyway. For all the Obamaganda out there, he isn't a wise man who listens to all, and carefully makes decisions. He is an ideologue who only listens to people likely to help him advance an agenda of E.U. style socialism)

    Did you not write:
    ?

    It makes no difference whether he is a gov't employer or a private employer. He can discriminate on any legal basis he wants, including gun owners.

    And when the ban comes (more like if), he will be the one pushing for it. So what does he care what gunowners say anyway?

    Normally when I'm filling out forms there is a section for this sort of stuff and the section has in small italicized print that the section is not required to be completed.

    He already has. He admitted to drug use in NY while attending college, he was know to socialize with a terrorist, Bill Ayres, not to mention others, and trained ACORN volunteers how to intimidate bankers on giving mortages that cause our present situation with our falling economy. Just to mention a few.
    What I don't understand is, if he applied to become a police officer, federal agent or even a school teacher, he would never pass the background investigation, and be disqualified for the above mentioned things. How in God's name does he qualify to be the President of the US, our Commander in Chief?...Something is really wrong here!..:eek:
