So why are even the law makers calling them that?
IMO they are using the fallacious terminology for various reasons. One, they are human and exposed to the same rhetoric and propaganda that we are.
Secondly, they serve their masters - the lobby. The NRA has a huge lobby, as do arms makers. If I were the owner of a company that made guns? I'd be
of a mind to push the rhetoric for no other reason than free advertising and solidification of my customer base. It would simply be good business to
want that. If I had a senator or two in my pocket? The better.
I also imagine that a few from the right simply use the exaggerated terms because it suits their long term goal of gaining control of the Government
in the next election.
I think there is a hell of a lot of truth to this right here.
The mems/"actions" are empty shirts. Gets you all riled up, pacifies the ninnies, makes more money for all involved.. and unfortunately does nada for
the real problems. A few of them he doesnt have a snowballs chance of actually advancing on... some are deceptive and could be dangerous... others
COULD be helpful if not abused by this or subsequent admins.
Heff, if "the right" AKA republican party thinks Romney is choice president material.. they should be disregarded by "the right" aka citizen voting
base. Im afraid to see who they trot out after both McCain and Romney, to be honest. I voted for Johnson and dont care who calls it a vote for Obama
or a wasted vote.
I happen to be a gun owner and 2nd Ammendment proponant that is NOT a great fan of the NRA. That makes me roundly hated by both sides. LOL!
Republicans have gone barking mad and it snowballed in the last 15-20 yrs since I turned my back on them. Dem politicians.. the same... nuts. Just
another shade of nutball. Hell, half of the libertarians are doofy and think libertarianism means anarchy. I hope soon the majority of folks will wake
up to and rebel against being used by the major parties and lied to constantly by both.. and find someone of accomplishemnt and character that doesnt
worship a donkey, elephant, or tow a hard party line. Then again.. its late. I may be awake and dreaming. Cant we just fire THEM ALL??
Start rant :
In any case, Im so puking sick of the cheerleaders for both sides on here and in the media... I hope aliens or Ison knocks the satellites out and we
dont have to hear the PSYCHOphant sheep bleat the regurgitated talking points on EVERY thread... on every channel... almost verbatim.. regardless of
what the thread is about. Even if you show them youre not talking about the dem repub pissing match.... they will babble crazily and repeat talking
points and catch words. One side thinks you HATE Obama and are some kind of a bible thumping gun nut if you disagree with something.. and the other
side thinks youre FOR obama and a libtard if you dont disagree on everything Obama does! This crap has even infiltrated my board.. and it has NOTHING
to do with current events, conspiracy, or politics.
My first account here was in 07.. right before the election. Its so strange how the shoe
fits both hard dem and hard repub feet depending on which one wears it.. there really is no difference in the irrationality.
