hdhale: You are harder on Conservatives than Liberals, not just because they claim the mantle of righteousness and wear it a little too proudly, but because it is EARNED.
Three Crooked Squirrels: The fact that he wasn't a Sandy Hook father doesn't negate what he said. I have always thought that it was a bad idea to make policy based on the emotions of a victim of a crime. Policy should come from reasoned thought and debate. Just like I don't want the families of murder victims to control death penalty policy, neither do I want the families of Sandy Hook victims to dictate gun control policy, either for more gun control or less.That said, the fact that his daughter was one mile away and was clearly personally affected, while not negating what he said, should be taken for what it is: emotion. We should listen to these people for sure, but need to take it with a grain of salt.
FlashHarry: why is it "conservatives" feel they constantly have to lie and cheat to win?
ALC59: Old story, the media said his kid went there he didn't, you people only read what you wantObamas kids don't go there and yet he uses Sandy Hook for his own personal/political agenda, but no one else is allowedWhere did he find the black kid, all the pictures i've seen of sandy hook were of only white kidsjust like the super bowl, had to throw Keys in the mix just for some color[i.imgur.com image 371x500]
plewis: The court of public opinion is much more important here than the truth, so in that case, this guy won one. But he should be ashamed of himself. HE DOES NOT KNOW REALLY WHAT HE WOULD FEEL IF HIS KID WERE INDISCRIMINATELY MOWED DOWN BY A WEAPON OF WAR. He does not REALLY know how he would then feel about guns. He's just a Douchebag who's kid was in no danger at all. BUT to the derp heads, he's a tragic hero and that will not change in the light of the truth. The public's attention has moved on and this guy served his purpose - not as a father, but as a tool for gun makers./why are we all so stupid?
ParadisePornoTheater: Haven't really paid attention to this 'til now. Are we sure he didn't fabricate his precious "Victoria", too?
Circusdog320: monoski: FlashHarry: why is it "conservatives" feel they constantly have to lie and cheat to win?Libs just do phony charities and steal the money for themselvesSo everybody does it...that's your rebuttal. Obviously you're ok with the lie and cheat part...got it!
Riche: FlashHarry: why is it "conservatives" feel they constantly have to lie and cheat to win?Because reality has a well-known liberal bias.I think I may start referring to that fact as "Colbert's law."===================And I really do wish all the freaking sociopaths in power who keep trying to fark over the nation would quit calling themselves "conservatives."Wanting to destroy public education and Social Security/Medicare while constantly seeking new ways to deny some people the chance to vote-- at least when they're not busy undermining any and all health and safety regulations is anything but "Conservative." It's actually very "radical" if not borderline "Anarchist" in some ways.
ChrisDe: ParadisePornoTheater: Haven't really paid attention to this 'til now. Are we sure he didn't fabricate his precious "Victoria", too?She's real. Oh, and she has cancer, too. And meningitis. Pretty sure she's going blind, too.
tricycleracer: "I will tell you here today, you will take my ability to protect my Victoria from my cold, dead hands."Because little Vicky will surely end up raped, murdered, and raped if you can't have 30 rounds in your AR-15.
