Well, Piers is off. Off to greener pastures or just off. I suppose it doesn't much matter with how many he managed to upset by some very unpopular positions he's pursued.


Piers Morgan wrapped his three-year CNN run tonight with (gasp!) a full hour of discussion about the missing plane. But in his four-minute final remarks, he couldn’t resist taking a parting shot at the NRA. “I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then, just a few months later, 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, the absurd gun laws in this country would change,” he said.

He goes on quite a little rant there, for what it is and the time spent on it.

I suppose he left as he came. In a puff of "huh??". A few threads I found from his past moments of notable shows.

Jesse Ventura Vs. Piers Morgan

Yup... 'Ol Piers was quite a character. He'll be missed. . . . . . by someone....somewhere?

I'm sure he'll wind up on another channel so he can keep spewing his crap. Too bad we can't ship him back to England where he belongs. Good riddance!

Now, how can we get rid of the rest? That's the 24,000 dollar question.

Piers Morgan is finally gone? I'm so sad...

OK that's a lie.


Personally I couldn't care less except for the fact it's just rude to go into another country and then spout off about how wrong he thinks our rights and priorities are. I think we should talk Alex Jones into going on BBC and telling the UK they need to demand their guns back.

Oh yeah, I heard they blacklisted AJ, hows that fair.

He won't be missed by me.

I wish everyone in the MSM would take a lesson from his tenure ... and cease with all the opinion reporting. I also realize MSM is going the way of radio. This'll probably be what Piers is remembered for more than anything else. Damn shame he took up my 15 minute time-slot for fame. -grin-

I didn't agree with his views, and I didn't really enjoy his show.

But...

the guy made people have discussions. Whether they were fueled or not, he got people to talk about their civil rights and the causes of violence in our society. Open discussion, what ever side you take is never a bad thing; and if there is anything his show did accomplish it was that.

Now that's a whole lot more than I can say about his competitors or his CNN predecessor.

Flag and Star, Wrabbit. Rude Grittance, I say.

And what Piers doesn't emphasize in the little parting pout over our rediculous gun legislation is the fact the scenarios he described were in mandated gun-free zones.
Almost always that IS the case when you get multiple people down-- and it's got to change. No matter what the security detail on the ground, we still have a random air marshal with a clip full of Safety Shot when we fly. There's an automatic "Mind your manners" deterrent..... why can't we get it through the progressive skull that gun laws don't deter sociopaths or the more mentally challenged?

I don't shop in shooting galleries where I'm a designated duck: plenty of 'em in ILLnoise.

Hmmmm I'm pretty sure Piers would be welcomed by the Dear Leader in North Korea. After all Dear Leader and Piers Morgan appears to have a lot in common.

I think it is very telling in our current stage of evolution where any given event can encourage those that have despised the Constitution to promote it's demise.

I think this says it pretty well... take away from it what you wish.

As if you could, if you tried?

I am for more restrictions, especially for fully automatic rifles. America's gun obsession is problematic, but I do believe citizens should be allowed to protect their homes or carry if licensed. I would favor more education and safety training to be required to maintain legal licensing, with stiff penalty for noncompliance, including revocation and confiscation...but it is the confiscation part that is risky and dangerous. I hope sensibility overrides gun entitlement promoted by fear of government control. The majority of gun owners understand reforms need to be proposed and passed legally, but do not think for even a moment we would not protect our inalienable right as set forth by the Supreme Court, repeatedly on the basis of the 2nd Amendment.

I truly hope murder by firearms can be minimized. However, America's lawmakers, lobbyists for restriction and against (NRA), and authoritative agencies stand to gain financially and politically either way. There in lies the root of the issue. If you calculate military, private, and public sales/contracting/purchasing, we have a $Trillion Industry.

"A well regulated Militia...", we are way past that. No militia could stop America's Military. Only the citizens can resolve gun legislation, and we are not prepared to do that yet. It is very sad, sad that the ignorance of many paves the way for the abuses of the few.

For anyone interested, here's what the Piers had to say



Not a big loss to me, in fact I think CNN just got better tonight.

I suppose I'd agree with that. (It's why I'm working at my writing and not speaking skills
)

Seriously tho. I'd say some voices are certainly more worthy of attention and interest for what's being said than others. I've even been pretty critical of Alex Jones. I still am, for that matter. However, I'll listen to him all day before I could really stand Piers and his condescending attitude for more than a few minutes in clips that occasionally came up.

Some things..just don't work well in a nation's own media market. Telling the population how badly they need schooled in something, anything, is one of them I'd say.

Love the quote!

I'd wish you luck in changing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but it would be dishonest.

Instead, I wish that you and your ideals fail miserably and never come to fruition.

Your reading comprehension skills are not good. Read my post again, wipe the hatred and spite from your "honest" eyes, and you will not only see, but also hear what I am saying. So I suppose you favor no revisiting of cultural issues via Constitutional Amendments? How about the 13th and 19th Amendments? No good for you?
