None of these assholes had a problem with GHW Bush banning import of whole piles of guns by executive order. None of them seem pissed about the increased surveillance and erosion of the 4th and 5th. No, its just guns.

I'd also point out that this jackass has no idea what tyranny really is. Misuse a word long enough and it loses its meaning.

Now, there's a fury in me -- I'm just being honest with you -- that I'm trying to contain. Biden, the moron Senator from Delaware, taking his train back and forth and back and forth on Amtrak. Oh wow, what a guy.

Why do Conservatives hate trains so much?
 
2013-01-12 09:47:13 AM
All this talk of tyranny, at the *idea* the *thought* about discussion. Nothing has happened, no one's lives are different. All the presidents' administrations since at least Nixon have sent guns overseas.

Get over yourself.

Not enough kids being killed for that ignorant d-bag Levin's sake?
 
2013-01-12 11:08:07 AM
Utter fury at trying to keep kids from getting killed for no reason.  Ah, the GOP.

MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.


where was this 'fury' when the patriot act somehow got passed into law?  where was this fury when the war on drugs destroyed our 4th and 5th amendment rights?  where was this fury when cops beat the snot outta OWS for asking QUESTIONS!?

yeah.  that's what I thought.  STFU.  you aren't furious.  you're a whiny biatch looking for a quick pay day off the fears of disillusioned GOP voters.

His highly articulate thoughts complete with detailed implementation schema for stopping the killing of 5 and 6-year olds is a much welcome solution to our national problem. He and his buddies will have this all solved soon.

I am worried about my third amendment rights.  Sure, he's my son, but his mom won't let me throw him out when he comes back on leave.  It's tyranny I tell you.

Of course, I mean the actual Ronald Reagan that actually walked the actual earth, not the mythical Exalted St. Ronaldus Magnus that exists only in the mind of "conservatives."

Somebody needs to explain to Mr. Levin what fury is. And someone should explain why it's not the best idea that he illustrates how much angrier he is about a hypothetical situation than he is about children being murdered.
 
2013-01-12 12:39:12 PM
That he can barely contain his fury is no surprise to anyone who has listened to Mark Levin's show.

He has this unusual tendency to start a sentence off at normal "inside speaking voice" and then gradually increase it as he gets angrier and more unhinged over time and he doesn't give a crap what anyone WHO DISAGREES WITH HIM SAYS! STUPID LIBERAL!

He does this to pander to the faux-tough guy demographic, and what makes it complete is that he has this nasally-whiny voice that never sells it to me.

Backyard pools kill too many children. No one needs a backyard pool. If we can just save one child from drowning, I would gladly give up my right to have a back yard pool.

Remember when these guys operated in the fringes of late night radio, with guys like Art Bell and EG Marshall's classic reruns of old radio drama's?

Now they are seen as mainstream voices of conservatism. It's really amazing.


/Loved Art Bell and whatever that show Marshall did was. Levin and the nutsquad not so much.

To be fair, the second amendment does discuss the right to bear arms.
 
2013-01-12 12:41:18 PM
Anyway, so they may do by executive fiat -- I'm trying to read between the lines -- a national gun database. Now, why would we need a national gun database?


This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.

I agree. In fact we should ban all pools because too often they result in random pool attacks where a stranger walks into a school and drowns an entire class.

You people just don't understand. The purpose of the 2nd amendment is to ensure the citizenry have the power to overthrow a tyrannical government. Which is why I hope conservative pundits like Mr. Levin and 2nd amendment lobbing organizations like the NRA will join my crusade to end the prohibition on citizens owning heavy arms like anti-tank missiles and SAMs. After all unless the populace has access to any and all military grade weaponry the true purpose of the 2nd amendment remains unfulfilled. It says the right to bear arms, not the right to bear only small arms.

This kind of crap is why I gave up my NRA membership. They claim to be pro-freedom. But in reality the American gun lobby is full of totalitarians. If any of them really gave the slightest sh*t about freedom, they'd call for LaPierre's removal for making that remark. But they don't. Which makes them hypocrites.

Really, it's the same with conservatives in general. Though gun nuts seem to be the most brazenly hypocritical. The only "freedom" they care about is gun rights. But they oppose basically all others.

Whenever i hear Mark Levin on the air, and he goes into a rant, it sounds so much like the Burgess Meredith Penguin character, I start laughing. Listen stariting at about 1:30, and tell me that you don't expect "Weh, weh weh!" at the end of every sentence.

The founding fathers operated on the same continent within sight of 3 expansionist global superpowers (4 if you count Russia) and made no provisions for as standing army until AFTER the second amendment was ratified.

So there's that as well.

It seems to me like the people who would most belong on LaPierre's national mentally ill registry are the members of his organization. Especially the ones who still think the NRA has anything to do with gun rights, and isn't just committed to getting Republicans elected regardless of their regard for guns.

They gave Romney a high rating and Obama a low rating leading up to the election. They supported the guy that actually put a ban on a gun versus the guy who eased up on gun control.

So, what does the R in NRA stand for again?
