clutchcargo2002: Who is this guy?


Interviewer on CNN. Similar theme to Larry King, his own show and whatnot. Great interviewer when you want to know what celebrities are like, brings out the real person, so to speak.

Bit of a zealot see-unt when it comes to politics(especially guns) though. He'll badger his guests in the fashion of Nancy Grace and Bill O'reilly. If it's someone like Micheal Moore who he agrees with, they get all out retarded in their back-patting denigration of other political views. Closest I ever came to wanting to throw something at the TV.

CNN has gone down-hill when it comes to remaining impartial, not much better than FOX news anymore.

kxs401: cman: It is not treasonous to say that you want to secede because you are using words.

Talking about committing treason and talking about modifying our gun laws are qualitatively different things.


Talking about why the US should cede certain territory is about as treasonous as talking about whether the US should acquire certain territory; such discussions take place in real world situations those outside of any echo chambers call "context". Seriously the default position for any "patriot" isn't that the US must constantly be growing in geography; in fact I can think of quite a few scenarios where letting go of certain states/territories might be beneficial to the US.

Manifest Destiny was/some would say still is a huge part of our various national policies but it isn't enshrined in the Constitution.

It started when the NRA abused their 1st Amendment rights to re-define the intent of the 2nd Amendment (a well regulated militia under the authority of the president and congress, to put down ibnvasions and rebellions). The recent SCOTUS opinion was just the final nail  in history's coffin.

Er, no, sorry. It most certainly did not - The issue of whether or not to have a fully-armed populace predates the constitution itself. Read your Federalist papers before talking about what "well regulated militia" means - Most notably,

under the authority of the president and congress

It very, very specifically does not mean that. At its weakest, you could claim it refers to each state having its own standing army - But even that interpretation requires totally castrating its original intent.

Well, let's see, Piers is a resident alien demanding a change in the US constitution and using his position as media figure to attempt to influence American politics(and getting a whopping 500K viewers). In other countries this is known as subversion or even espionage. He's can't be charged with treason, least of all because he's not an American citizen and bound by no oath to be faithful to the country, BUT he can be deported for all of those things if you want to get technical.

Unless I missed something Piers Morgan is a British subject not a US citizen and as such technically enjoys no protection under the 1st amendment. Therefore he can't abuse his right to it since he has no right to it. Just a small point.

Federalist #29

"To oblige the great body of the yeomanry, and of the other classes of the citizens, to be under arms for the purpose of going through military exercises and evolutions, as often as might be necessary to acquire the degree of perfection which would entitle them to the character of a well-regulated militia, would be a real grievance to the people, and a serious public inconvenience and loss. It would form an annual deduction from the productive labor of the country, to an amount which, calculating upon the present numbers of the people, would not fall far short of the whole expense of the civil establishments of all the States. To attempt a thing which would abridge the mass of labor and industry to so considerable an extent, would be unwise: and the experiment, if made, could not succeed, because it would not long be endured. Little more can reasonably be aimed at, with respect to the people at large, than to have them properly armed and equipped; and in order to see that this be not neglected, it will be necessary to assemble them once or twice in the course of a year."

You understand, of course, that amendments to the constitution supersede those portions of the constitution that came prior to them, right?

So, for example, black people and indians no longer count as only 3/5ths of a human for the purpose of representational apportionment.

Though in fairness, I made an appeal to a document predating the constitution itself - Though more in the hopes of helping you understand that this has nothing to do with the evil, evil NRA twisting the holy words of our Founding Fathers.

Oh, another Alt.

>>>>>Secession is treason

Really?

From the US Constitution: "Section. 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

From Wiki article on the meaning of the word: "Secession (derived from the Latin term secessio) is the act of withdrawing from an organization, union, or especially a political entity."

Please tell us how the act of withdrawing from the Union is "levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

It's not a false equivalency. Subject matter is moot. It is about people speaking. People speaking. People speaking. People speaking. It is not treasonous to say that you want to secede because you are using words.


Except that it is a false equivalency. Now if Piers Morgan actually said "deport me", or expressed some other desire to leave the US, it would be equivalent, but he didn't. Deporting the secession petition signers is just to do what they're asking for, except they weren't actually serious about it. It only pissed them off because they were called on their bluff, which made them look like idiots.
