Re: “A Partial List Of UA Freedom Center's Funders

Tim Steller is a mindless captive of the mainstream media mantra that a journalist should essentially never really take a side (even if he is writing an opinion piece), which is why his "opinions" are really just a tedious mush of corrosive false equivalencies, embarrassing political distortions and "he said/she said" dissembling.

Re: “Interview with a Robot

Truly disturbing. Someone needs to smash this hideous machine with a great big hammer before it becomes popular among the hordes of mindless technolytes (i.e., those who worship technology, the number one religion in the land).

Re: “A Look Back At the N.R.A

"...by definition a criminal is someone who doesn't obey the law."

WRONG. By definition, a criminal is someone who has been convicted of a crime--i.e., found guilty by a judge or a jury of peers. Many, many people do not obey laws and never become branded as criminals, because they never get caught.

Personally, I don't need a gun to protect myself, and I certainly don't obsess about "gangbangers and cartels" with automatic weapons.

However, I do worry about paranoid, angry white men who foolishly spray bullets around the moment their cowardice and white male privilege get the better of them, because the statistics make it very clear that they are a far more prevalent and virulent threat to our communities, our schoolkids, their own wives and families, etc.

Re: “A Look Back At the N.R.A

As long as we're tossing around pithy oversimplifications, how about this one: Guns don't kill people. Idiots with guns kill people.

But, really, in the current context of the gun reform discussion, that statement needs a serious edit: (Usually angry white male) idiots with (super-efficient, high-capacity, military-grade) guns kill (lots of unarmed, innocent) people (in the blink of an eye).

There are plenty of other laws to protect people from their own stoopidity (driving while texting is one of the most recent examples). Guns should be no different. It's simply long past time to properly regulate the number and type of guns that wind up in the hands of idiots.

Re: “'Dark Money, Charles Koch, and the UA Freedom Center' Panel Discussion Tuesday at UA

Don't forget the most fundamental freedom of all, for the Kochs, anyway: Freedom to be obscenely wealthy Old White Guys ruling the world.
