Why would a guy from Bumfark, TX care SO MUCH about a possible gun law in NYC?

Mandapants: One photo on her Facebook page dated July 2012 shows her holding a large assault-style rifle and wearing a  bikini.

Honestly, I was really hoping for this:

The rifle depicted is not "assault-style"; it lacks a shoulder thing that goes up.

Richard Jewel. For you young'uns, you can Google the name, and learn the important lesson that the rush to judgement almost alway serves a  political purpose.

Pray 4 Mojo: LasersHurt: LasersHurt: jehovahs witness protection: HMMM...where's the gun nut part?

Secret Service officials have said there were similarities between the three letters received by Bloomberg, Obama, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns Director Mark Glaze. All, "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns."

Formatting Failures abound. But you get the idea.

You do understand the logical error of saying the suspect is a gun nut because the letters were written by a gun nut... right?


He's from Texas.  It's a given.

Actually, the usual scenario for 2nd Amendment "rights" enthusiasts is they kill their own families and then the ebil gubmint arrives for a barricade situation.

So it looks like all of her kids are from previous relationships (no word on the one on the way), they're either divorced or in the process, and he's claiming she set him up. He could be telling the truth. The only thing that seems certain is that this is shaping up to be a pretty awesome soap opera. Also, at the risk of sounding like an asshole, I would not, under any conceivable circumstances, date a woman with 5 kids.

Cohen the Barbarian: yeegrek: Cohen the Barbarian: I'll just leave this here.

The intent was to cause panic and fear, so this is still not a laughing matter, but it appears that the media is working mightily to turn an any possible anthill into Everest.

Would that be the guy who advocated terrorism in response to expanded background checks?  Nice.  Any chance you could look up Dzohkhar Tsarnaev's thoughts on the matter?  I'm sure he'd have all kinds of brilliant insights, too.  Unlike Bob Owens, he actually put words into action, rather than write endless, "Will no one rid me of those troublesome liberals?" blog posts.

Fark the messenger. How original.


When the messenger advocates terrorism, then yes, fark him indeed.

Well, as I mentioned in another thread, most of her 'acting' (background) work is on shows shot in GA. So it seems like she's been spending a lot time away from home.

propasaurus: It's a bit weird that she actually turned him in. Married, 5 kids, sixth on the way. And it looks like she probably posted some derby teabaggery crap on her own Facebook. So, what set her over the edge to where calling the cops on her hubby was the better choice than confronting him about it?


Ricin in the family fridge, maybe?

Hobodeluxe: propasaurus: basemetal: How are these people making ricin without killing themselves?

My guess is they aren't They're probably just crushing some castor beans, which sets off the ricin alert meter. I mean, no one can really think that the president is going to open a letter himself and be instantly poisoned. But it's a threat of worse to come.

it's still counts of attempted murder at the very least.
it could be deemed a terrorist act and have him labeled as an enemy combatant if they want to set an example.


That would be attempted murder in the same way that me throwing an empty shotgun shell casing at you as hard as I can is attempted murder... Which is to say not in any way at all. It may scare you, but it it has absolutely no chance of causing actual bodily harm. In most states it is assault at worst, and only the misdemeanor level of assault.

Of course add in the letter and you get some form of terrorism or something most likely, but definitely not attempted murder.

skinink: Considering all the recent stories and leaks from unnamed sources/authorities that have come out about events that were factually wrong (like the friend of the Boston Bomber - he shot at police, or he had a knife, or he was unarmed, or he threw a table at authorities), I'll wait for the correct story to come out months from now if ever. It would be sad if this guy winds up the next mistaken Richard Jewell.

No Jewell was the falsely accused man who saved a bunch of lives at the Olympics bombing in Atlanta.

The ricin-mailer is a gun nut. Nothing in the story makes Richardson a gun nut, unless you're assuming person-of-interest means GUILTY!. His wife posting a pic of herself with a rifle, however ...

I wonder if this is another frame job like the last ricin scare. Maybe she thinks this would be faster way to get rid of him than a divorce.

Yeah, except that he wasn't farked for life at all. Everyone in Georgia knew that he was the guy who was exonerated and saved a bunch of lives. He had a lot of paranoid butthurt about it afterward, but his life and job prospects actually improved. Not to mention all the money he got in settlements with the networks.

Mrbogey: If only the American Left hated the Taliban a tenth of how much the hate the SBC. It is a weird call and response though from the left. They can't just say the Taliban sucks without throwing in the SBC or some other Christian group. It highlights how perverse their thinking is on who the enemies are. Do you think that the SBC is so small and so powerless that what stops them from using violence is fear? That society wouldn't be plunged into chaos if they were as evil as the Taliban?


No, what stops them from using violence is that they are not in an environment where that will effectively advance their cause.  If you switched the SBC and Talibans basic belief structure but the Taliban was in a rich wealthy country and the SBC was in a third world shiathole where real powers sold them weapons to fight proxy wars for them, then the Taliban would be trying to run ramshod over the constitution through social legislation and the SBC would be petty warlords enforcing their backwards views on people by gunpoint.   Fundamentalists will always try to force their views upon you because they believe, fundamentally, they are saving your soul.  It makes them inherently dangerous, and I fear the damage the SBC can do through political influence more than I fear the Taliban - and I say this as someone who works a few blocks away fromg ground zero.

Curious though that a religious fundamentalist like the Tsarnaev brothers supported Obama, since the right-wing hates Obama.

American republicans hate Obama, he is a right wing president on any rational political spectrum that takes into account views held outside of this country.

lilplatinum: No, what stops them from using violence is that they are not in an environment where that will effectively advance their cause.


You theorize.

I'm sure you'd gladly push a wheelchair bound child over a cliff if you could make a few dollars doing so but you live in a nation where that's frowned upon and it's easier for you to make a few dollars that don't involve murder. Ergo, you're a bad person for what I believe you'd do.

See how dumb that sounds? You assert someone is bad then create a narrative where they'd do bad things and then treat them as if your hypothetical is actual.

Is it really so hard to believe that the people you despise aren't evil people? I got news for you. If the Christians in this country were as fanatical as the Taliban you'd have your brains smeared all over the sidewalk at this point because we have far more Southern Baptists in this country than the Taliban has in Afghanistan and in shear percentage the devout Christians in America have the Taliban beat in ratios. That they don't use violence isn't a result of the system. The system is a result of their views on violence.

lilplatinum: American republicans hate Obama, he is a right wing president on any rational political spectrum that takes into account views held outside of this country.


Well of course you had to go outside of this country and included the views of socialists who consider themselves centrists.Is it so difficult to allow an honest assessment to alter your finely honed stubbornness?

I have my suspicions about this guy being set up.  that note reads like a Herp a Derp gun nut post off Huff Po or some other left leaning publication.  Also considering the  fellow works on a military instillation where they are looking for this type of whack, so they can lock  them up before they start  the  revolution it really makes me wonder if it is not a clever divorce ploy or wifeys way of getting more publicity to advance her stripping- I mean acting career.

I know you're a troll. I know that you're trolling.
Still, socialism is government ownership of the means of production. By market measures, President Obama is the worst socialist ever.

And President Obama's domestic and foreign policies put him to the right of Richard M. Nixon - with daylight between them. Go ahead - look at the '68 and '72 platforms. (I especially like Nixon's wage and price controls on the domestic side. And Obama's drone strikes / binLaden raid on the foreign policy side.)

Your two statements share no connection. One was a factual definition while the other was opinion without regard to the first. Where were you when GM bailed out GM and stiffed the bondholders? How does one "privatize profit and socialize losses" when there's no socialism occurring?

I mean, I know that you're trolling and all but you could do a finer job than herping a lotta derp.

They do hate the Taliban, but I guess the difference you are missing is that they see the Hard Right WIng conservatives as more of a threat here at home. They have the same blind ideology and looking to be amping it up, becoming less tolerant of the freedoms given by the constitution and relating everything to armed conflict in the name of God. The Taliban is doing it thousands of miles away, the Hard Rightwing movement is trying to take control of America, so they are scarier and more dangerous. The only difference is that they call God "Ala" instead of Jesus.

Citation needed on the Tsarnaev love of Obama, I mean their bomb attack was because of protest to US policy, that Obama is the leader of the US, would that not put them against Obama? So it would seem to be a conflict there in your reasoning...   just sayig.

sdkOyOte: They have the same blind ideology and looking to be amping it up, becoming less tolerant of the freedoms given by the constitution and relating everything to armed conflict in the name of God.


And that's bullshiat. You're creating an enemy in which to fight. You're applying a cartoon narrative to the world at large with the depth of a Captain Planet episode.

How about the attacks on the 2nd Amendment? Where the argument isn't over how far we should extend the right to armed self-defense but instead over why even allow it. How about the commerce clause bullshiat where the gov't has the tax authority and regulatory authority to do anything? How about the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS... that they have admitted so don't try and deny it.

If Constitutional rights were actually your concern you wouldn't be saying it's the Christian Right that's your enemy. Their biggest concern is the aborting of what they consider children and the violation of their right to life. That's a disagreement over the application of a right. Not trying to deny a right.

You misunderstand why everyone is mocking you, Mrbogey. It's not that Dzhokhar couldn't have been glad that Romney lost last year. Indeed, most Americans were. Certainly anyone who was opposed to continued war in the Middle East was, and that was the whole reason his older brother became radicalized, after all.

It's okay to admit you're flailing. There's no need to be to intellect what Paul Lynde was to heterosexuality.
