(Talking Points Memo)   The conspiracy theory that Obama is buying up all the nation's ammunition is so crazy that even the NRA says it's bull. But that hasn't stopped two GOP congressmen from drafting legislation to combat it   (tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 256

Lumpmoose: nytmare: Well somebody must be hoarding all the ammo because there's not enough ammo around for me to hoard.

Exactly.  When you buy based on paranoia, it becomes a self-reinforcing cycle when the supply runs out.


Doomsday preppers wanted for questioning...

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: INDUSTRY alliance?


People with shared political and economic interests often form "alliances."  Ric Romero has film at 11.

So AARP is an industry-owned organization and doesn't represent old people at all?

[boardingarea.com image 850x459]

AARP is just a hotel lobbying group. It doesn't lobby for elderly people at all.

It's definitely a marketing tool. And my point is, the NRA benefits from gun sales.

Never saw the president of AARP telling Congress Obamacare would lead to death panels, though.


That's because the NRA has become the champion of all paranoia that will lead to necessitating "second amendment solutions". Manufacturers benefit from the NRA, and so pander to them. The "free NRA membership" is a way to attract NRA members to buy their products for their spouses and offspring or people who want to join the NRA anyway. It's marketing, not a revenue stream.

Molavian: notto: kortex: Fark is so very liberal these days.  It almost makes me want to stop reading the site.  Sadly, I enjoy the humor.

Reality has a liberal bias.

No, it doesn't.  Your perception of reality is distorted by your liberal bias.

Today's Fark is way left of center.  Fark of yesteryear was much more centrist in dispensing snark.


Mmmm...I was thinking the same thing a few days ago.  But after giving it additional thought, I think it's that the right has gone so far right they are in off-the-charts Stupidville.  Making everybody who was 'center' look left by comparison.  I've always been somewhat center, but lately have found myself left of center due to all the craziness coming from the other side of the fence.  Even some of my closest friends, who historically stood firmly on the right, don't seem so convinced these days.

Anybody with some common sense and a bullshiat meter cannot, in good faith, defend what is going on with Repubs right now.

I used to be more sympathetic to your point of view, but you have to admit that Obama's second term has brought a lot of the earlier tinfoil hattery to pass.  Sandy Hook was like a dog whistle to a lot of people in both the press and government sector: "It's go time!"  The horrible eagerness displayed by gun-control advocates is frankly kind of unsettling.  They just seem to want it too much.

Newtown would have resulted in a Republican president making noises about additional laws as well. The only difference is that a GOP president wouldn't bother with the inanity of an assault weapons ban.
