    Balance. Gun control is a gun for the government, and the government is just people, too, only bigger and able to do more damage. Sometimes, the letter and the spirit are one thing. A militia must be mustered from available citizens at a minute’s notice, ready and able to use force in defense of their lives and homes, a bit like a rural community has a volunteer fire department, all able to use the equipment available to them.

    What is sad is the number of Americans who do harm with the belief they are patriots who are trying to save their nation from itself. One wonders where they get such ideas.
    When Henry the 2nd was angry with his one time friend, Thomas Beckett, the Bishop of Canterbury, he is said to have angrily said, “Can no one rid me of this turbulent priest?” And four of his knights took those words and went to kill Beckett.
    There are many angry people out there. When they read forums like this and even more strident ones, it effects what they think. If they hear enough people calling for radical action, they begin to feel that if they take those actions, they will become matyred heroes, like Tim McVeigh and Eric Rudolph.
    Without civil discourse, calm voices cannot be heard over the violent din of uncivil and viciously angry cries for change, no matter what the cost.
    Perhaps these people hope that the actions they take will inspire more to join their cause. How many of GC’s commentators are ready to rise up against their gov’t if they can get enough people to join them?
    curiously,

    Your comments have always seemed so reasonable and well-mannered. But my eyes have been opened. I can see now it was all an insidious commie ruse. We are all so grateful to “onguard” for pointing out you are actually … Far Left!
    .
    Really, Respectful Troll – I appreciate your comments, BUT CUSS AT LEAST ONCE, OR I’LL GO MAD! (just kidding)

    Civil rights, a sense of history, fairness, engaging with people honestly and decently — yeah, sure, Respectful Troll MUST be far left if he believes in all those things instead of mean spirited insults!

    Who defends your home at a moment’s notice? The police? The National Guard? YOU do or not, your choice. The police come AFTER a crime has been committed. Duh. Use the best weapon you have! Your MIND! Think people, you are responsible for you and your family’s safety. That criminal WILL be armed, will you be? Or you can wait on the cops to pick up the pieces when they arrive or not, if you live in Oregon.

    these forums are nothing but post it notes on the net. This is where I can rant and rave and push the limit of civil thought. I can go right up to the ledge, jump and hang on to the cliff side of what I think and believe. This is my political outlet. Where I can scream at the top of my lungs "WHAT ARE YOU THAT YOU ELECTED THE IDIOT OBAMA AGAIN!!!!? and hopefully get some sort of answer. a snarky one but sometimes a well thought out biting one. And that just sharpens my satire blade. And I like that.

    Like the final panel shows, the poison is coming from the right wing.

    What an honest answer from Harleytoons, oh my! I also find it fascinating that you missed Bush’s idiocy,..
    But but but buuuuoooossssshhhh whatever. I have on many occasions point out that the mess our economy started going south the last two years of his term. When both house and Senate were D controlled. Is that good enough for you? I have also pointed out that the Clinton the Liar in Chief, did work well with a R controlled house and Senate and never once blamed what he could or could not do on the other side. That Clinton was the smartest President, closely followed by Reagan Bush 1, Bush 2, Then you have to go back a ways to maybe Nixon to find someone who had brains and a backbone for leadership. Obama is Carter are fighting over the bottom which will go down as the stupidest leader in the modern age!

    “RT has claimed to be an Independent…”

    I have not found this to be the case. He has been pretty straightforward as to his leanings. His “ruse”, in my opinion, is that he is willing to look at things the way they are, not through a lens that has been prepared by either party’s dogma. Perhaps the rarity of that kind of individual has you confused.

    It reminds me of the quote from The Office, where one character in a relationship with another character allows that he always says what he thinks. Her frustration: “What kind of game is THAT?”

    Oh, W Bush won the 1st time fair and square. If only Al would have carried his home state he might have won. And Both Al Gore and Kerry’s grades were lower than W Bushes. Of course Obama’s College Years are sealed away, I still wonder if he remembers is druggy years in High School and college before Harvard.

    Don’t these “freedom fighters” understand that they bring the end of all freedom upon themselves and the rest of the citizens? OBL was a(n evil) genius for getting the U.S. into financial and moral self-destruct-mode, but these “Patriots” are too stupid to understand that they are actually helping him to achieve his goal – posthumously…

    It is hard to attack something if you believe it to be for the common good, and impractical to attack something that can’t be quickly and easily reconciled.
    It is easy to attack a messenger but apparently difficult to come up with solutions to which a real majority might agree.
    What are the Rep Con Core beliefs? What Dem Lib beliefs do you think most odious?
    The cartoon shows a man about to act to ‘defend his rights’ from the gov’t. At what point is it acceptable in a civil society to do that?
    Curiously,
    & Respectfully,

    And the republicans are more concerned with making Iran a nuclear pancake than with trying to do anything beneficial in foreign policy

    Gore Bane: had to read that a couple times to believe you said it. The fact is that “conservatives” and “pro-lifers” say Gosnell represents every liberal, person supporting Roe V Wade, or a woman’s right to her own body.


    No, the “ricin warrior” doesn’t represent “gun owners”, but DOES represent a vast number of people in so called “militias” and ultra-right wing groups. NOTE: that doesn’t mean all true conservatives or Republicans. However, watching Issa and the pundits could lead you to believe they represent a majority.
