BraveNewCheneyWorld: Teufelaffe: Do you honestly believe that even if every single civilian in the country was armed that they would have any chance whatsoever at "defending themselves from oppression"?
Sure, "we need arms to defend ourselves from oppression" makes for a nice ideal, but we've gone way beyond that being something that's possible. We have standing armies to defend us from external oppression, but we're farked if the government decides to go totalitarian on us, and no amount of guns in the hands of the general populace is going to change that.

It's hilarious that you people out yourselves as so naive to believe that the entire military would use such weapons in their own neighborhoods. That's pretty much the dumbest argument you could make.


You're right, we've never had any point in the history of the US when our military turned its weapons on "their own neighborhoods"...oh wait, we did...it was called the Civil War. Perhaps you've heard of it? If our government were ever to reach a point where it was using our armed forces en masse against the civilian population, sure we'd have a fracture in the armed forces between those who would follow orders and those who wouldn't. However, armed civilians still wouldn't be worth anything other than fodder. You can't take down an Abrams or an A-10 with a farking AR-15, no matter how many times you've watched the Rambo movies. Should we ever have another civil war, civilians will simply be bystanders and casualties no matter how many guns they own.

People also used to view each state as a sort of country, that's not quite the case anymore.

Aquapope: Tumunga: Do people really FEAR Jon Stewart?

Not really, but the libbies actually believe he's Walter Cronkite.

Libby here. No, I don't think he's Cronkite. If Cronkite were alive he'd destroy these asswipes with much more journalistic acuity than Stewart wish he had. But Stewart is doing it for laughs, not journalism, and that's a big difference.


You must be one of the reasonable libbies. The crazy ones residing in the Farkdom, don't believe what you believe.

Runs_With_Scissors_: SilentStrider: GAT_00: They are very lucky TDS is on Christmas break or Stewart would biatchslap these people.

Once the show is back from break, I'd wager this is one of the first things that they discuss, after the shooting itself.

This.

Do you remember when Fox slammed him for something, and when he got back from a break he did a couple minute biatch-slapping monologue and finished up with a gospel choir that sang "Fark You?"

There will be something grand from him. I assure you.


True enough, but let's face it - Jon Stewart is preaching to the choir. Those he lampoons are not the sort of people who will ever tune in to his show to see it.

They sure talk about him a lot. Then again, they also talk about "hip-hop" and "gangster rap", so there's that...
