StuffAnonymous writes "Peace has been banned from Oswego Lying???!!!! The Emperor really banned him?? Maybe the Emperor isn't so bad after all eliminating such an unpatriotic, hate filled guy especially when it comes to the US and Israel.

Peace got all bent out of shape over Captain Ed's truthful explanations of the responsibilities of citizenship as related to the Second Amendment. Since Peace is so anti-American it comes as no surprise that he refuses to do his civic duty and be prepared to be called up to defend the country.

I do wonder though if Captain Ed isn't an alter ego for the Emperor himself. That would certainly explain Peace being banned when he tried to respond to the Captain's great explanations of how the Second Amendment works and the responsibilities for citizens. It is something to consider.

Now Peace his ranting about all the bad countries were are allying with to fight even worse guys who want to take over the world. As far as Peace is concerned we should stay out of it and let ISIS, or whomever, take over the Middle East. Peace would not be sad to see that bunch take out Israel. As far as Peace is concerned the Jews have no right to any land in the Middle East and should be removed, or killed I suppose. Just another pogrom. 

Peace still harps on his delusion that Israel is occupying the nonexistent palestinian homeland. While Peace loves to go back in history to bring up all the bad things he loves to harp on he cannot see any historical significance to the Israeli claims to Jerusalem and the surrounding area even though Israel consisted of it present size PLUS parts of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. 

Even when the muslim Ottoman Empire was at it height they never bothered to consider Jerusalem as their capitol. Suddenly, now it becomes important to these palestinians mostly because it denies the Jews their most sacred place. Again, remember that the Temple Mount is only the THIRD most sacred place to muslims while it is the First for Jews. The Dome of the Rock and the other mosque there should be razed or moved to let Israel build it's third temple. 

For all of Peace's hatred for the US government because of its bad history one has to wonder why he is pushing for a massive progressive/socialist government. I have never denied the sins of the US Government but I have no doubt that an even stronger progressive/socialist government would be far, far worse. Peace probably thinks that because he is a proponent of such a massive government that he'll receive some kind of special treatment and not be subject to all of the massive constraints on individual freedom such a government will bring.

In his simplistic thinking everyone will be equal, receive the same pay regardless of the work they do OR DO NOT DO. We'll all live in the some kind of home or apartment, except for the political elite of which Peace expects to be part of.

Oh, well, it is difficult to figure out a delusional, fractious mind such as Peace's. His love/hate relationship with government probably adds to his conspiracy theory view of everything which I mentioned in my last post. He should really attempt to come to grips with his inconsistencies.

 Imperial America's Middle East Allies vs. ISIS

GovernmentAnonymous writes "Saudi Arabia - Absolute Monarchy, oldest Islamic fundamentalist state in the world

Jordan - Hereditary Monarchy, some democratic pretense

Qatar - Absolute Monarchy (al-Thani family dictatorship)

Bahrain - Absolute Monarchy (al-Khalifa family dictatorship)

United Arab Emirates - Absolute Monarchy (federation of 7 hereditary absolute monarchies)

Democracy and Freedom baby!

United States' violence and support for dictatorship in the Middle East since the discovery of oil 100 or so years ago has poisoned the region.  America collaborated with the most reactionary regimes and fundamentalist ideologies to destroy Arab nationalism, Arab socialism and any realistic notion of Arab democracy.  Now some of the religious extremists America and its allies created have turned on the masters.  America's response?  Yet more violence, more killing, more imperial intervention.  And American politicians, Western politicians in England and France and so forth, have the audacity to label others "terrorists" and "evil" and "brutal" and "savage."  ISIS is a savage, terrible regime ... as is America and its coalition.  Peace is the only answer.  The United States should declare peace and start supporting Middle East democracy from Palestine to the Persian Gulf ... instead it's doubling down on violent intervention and "partnership" with Arab dictators.  Blah

 I Am Not A Militia Member, Sorry

CommunityAnonymous writes "There is no militia.  It is a twisted figment in the minds of proto-fascists like Doc Bill and Captain Ed.  The United States has developed a paid professional army since the inception of the country in the 18th century.  I have no responsibility as a citizen to own firearms, train to commit violence against imagined enemies in our midst, or to follow orders from governors or presidents.  I don't see any president, as Commander-In-Chief, grabbing a weapon and marching at the head of a "militia" into battle.  These are outdated 18th century notions that remain relevant only in the undeveloped hopelessly dogmatic minds of the Bills and Eds.

Once again, I oppose jihadists philosophically, morally, politically and in any other way one can imagine.  Jihadists are able to draw on a large reservoir of opposition to Western/Christian imperialist practices going back centuries and the West, with the United States leading the "Crusade," continues its aggressive militaristic policies to keep the people of the Middle East terrorized and tyrannized under the thumb of hideous Arab dictatorships, the Israeli Occupation regime in Palestine, and violent jihadism.  Going back decades, the United States, in concert with its Saudi ally, has supported the growth of religious extremism in the Sunni Muslim world as a counterweight to more progressive ideologies.  The United States actively supported Islamic fundamentalism in Afghanistan in the 1980s, trained jihadis, armed jihadis, spread jihadi propaganda through the Middle East, turned a blind eye to the fact that 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, and ignores the fact that ISIS has been funded and enabled by Saudis and other citizens of the Arab dictatorships in the Persian Gulf.  Going back to its support for the Shah of Iran, the Saudi royal family, fundamentalist dictatorships in Pakistan, the mujahideen in Afghanistan, and on and on the United States has been the leading counter-revolutionary imperialist force in the Middle East from the Cold War through today.  Now we are told to support the American Empire and its Arab dictator clients as they battle the Frankenstein monster they themselves created with 50 years of imperialism and active support for jihadism.  I only hope one day the people of the Middle East will throw off the shackles of the American imperium, the Saudi crime family, the military dictatorship in Egypt, the monarchies in Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, etc. and groups like ISIS and al Qaeda which grew out of the Saudi vision of the world and took it to even more extremist directions. 

As for Doc Bill getting all critical of China and India for their environmental record let's remember that they are simply conforming to the economic system the U.S. imposed on the world since WWII.  They decided to compete with America and Western Europe economically and thus had no choice but to adopt Western practices in complete disregard for the natural world.  China and India have well over 1 billion people compared to the US' 300 or so million.  If you examine the various international environmental conferences, the US has been and remains the nation most responsible for blocking an agreement on climate change and environmental sustainability.

3/5 compromise?  The slaves shouldn't have been counted at all given the fact they had zero human, political or any other rights.  They were counted to give the Southern Slave Regime inflated influence in American governments from 1789-1865.  I would have supported emancipation and democratization in the South with former slaves having full and equal rights with white citizens.  It's called democracy Doc, I know it's hard for you to conceive of such a thing given your obvious bias in favor of white supremacy.

And I'd also like to join Doc's disdain for the Emperor.  I wrote a response to Captain Ed's recent pro-gun screeds and have been denied publication.  If the Emperor is going to allow unlimited Captain Ed commentary, he should allow critical engagement from others instead of censoring open community discussion of such interesting and obviously popular issues.

 US Supporting Neo-Nazis in Ukraine

GovernmentAnonymous writes "http://zcomm.org/znetarticle/ukraine-and-neo-nazis/

"Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine in February the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects - the US/European Union/NATO triumvirate - have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis.  In the US it's been virtually unmentionable.  I'm sure that a poll taken in the United States on this issue would reveal near universal ignorance of the numerous neo-Nazi actions, including publicly calling for death to "Russians, Communists and Jews."  But in the past week the dirty little secret has somehow poked its head out from behind the curtain a bit.

On September 9 NBCnews.com reported that "German TV shows Nazi symbols on helmets of Ukraine soldiers."  The German station showed pictures of a soldier wearing a combat helmet with the "SS runes" of Hitler's infamous black-uniformed elite corps.  (Runes are the letters of an alphabet used by ancient Germanic peoples.)  A second soldier was shown with a swastika on his helmet."

But yeah, Putin is Hitler here right?  Wake the **** up.

 The Incredible Peace and the Empereor

GovernmentAnonymous writes "Yes, Peace you have been derelict in your patriotic duty as a citizen of the Untied States of America to be prepared when the militia is called upon to defend the state or nation. Do you have the appropriate arms, you know those very scary rifles you progressives hate and all the other equipment a soldier needs? I have them and have trained with them for many years. I suggest that you educated yourself about your duty as a citizen and go out an purchase the appropriate rifle and other accouterments. The militia can be called up by the governor of a state or the President of the US depending upon the circ-umstances requiring the militia.  

With jihadists in our midsts it might be necessary for you and I to defend our communities and state from the islamofascist bastards with whom you are so enthralled. Fortunately one was recently arrested in Rochester. Another was arrested in New Jersey for the revenge nuder of an innocent 19 year old student who was going home. It was then discovered that he murdered three others int he State of Washington. I have no doubt that his islamofascist leanings are not widely reported but he himself states that the murders were revenge for US bombing in the Middle East. He especially wanted to murder returning soldiers. 

I appears that you and this jihadist share the same hate filled attitude about the US. Then again maybe you don't want to fight them there because you really want to get a piece of the action yourself and so you're waiting for these bastards to up their jihad over here? Or maybe you secretly desire to go join the jihadis as other Americans have. I understand that ISIS has quite an assembly of "comfort women" apparently run by French female jihadis. Is that what that one guy was referring to as Disneyland?

With illegal aliens coming from over 140 countries crossing our borders there is no doubt that some jihadists have come here to bring the fight to us. Of course, with jihadi factories such as we have in the midwest and elsewhere, do not forget Dearbornistan, any of those not captured and released will find sufficient recruits for their murderous mission. On 10 September 2014 four individuals with known terrorist ties were captures crossing the border. There is no way of knowing how many such terrorists have already crossed and are setting up shop here.

The rest of your screed is a compilation of hate filled, boiler plate progressive rhetoric to paint the US as the worst country in the history of the planet.

"The United States is the biggest purveyor of violence and environmental destruction in the world today."

Absolutely false on its face. The islamofascists are the greatest purveyors of violence across the planet. China and India are the biggest causes of environmental damage. The greatest amount of environmental damage done in Europe occurred during the USSR days. Remember Al Gore talking about that lake which he claimed dried up because of global warming when in truth all of the water was directed away for the lake by soviet canals?

As for the 3/5 Compromise I suppose you would have preferred the slaves to be counted one for one. This goes back to your wish that the US was never formed which would have been the case with that compromise. It also shows just how ignorant you are of history. Whether Douglass was a progressive or not is irrelevant as he understood the Constitution which you obviously do not. 

You deny hating the US but all of your arguments with all of your detailed "atrocities" committed by the US are not expressions of love. I still say that the histories of other countries are filled with far more atrocities even if we just start with the 1770's. Beyond that the monarchies that ruled with iron fists over the people are not examples of individual freedom by any stretch of the imagination. 

One final point, it appear that the Emperor has forgotten his history also. When I started posting on his site I warned those rebutting my posts that I would return their inflammatory and derogatory rhetoric. The Emperor had no problem with his progressive friends and he himself calling me all kinds of names and making every issue about me rather than the facts and truth. But he objected to me using that same language in my answers to their derogatory remarks. It is a fact that progressives can dish it out but they cannot take it!

Among all his other talents the Emperor is also a grammar Nazi. He now claims that I never knew how to use spell check. Another false claim on its face by those who like to remember the past in ways it never existed. I admit now and did so then that there were times I was rushed and forgot to edit my posts. At other times I used a correctly spelled word which did not fit for one reason or another such as their, there and they're. There are many more such errors that could be possible. Such errors do not show up on spell check thought they might if a computer also has grammar check. The program I currently use sometimes edits what I write with its own interpretation of what I typed. Therefore I am quite diligent is editing what I post though I still miss a few here and there. 

In the end my posts are as grammatically pure as I can make them in the time I donate to posting. Some of my misspelling and grammatical errors are intentional for there effects. Then again I may be using words which most do not know such as "insolation." That is not the stuff in your walls!

Considering some of the other posts which show their obvious lack of grammatical education mine are quite clear and correct. Such jabs are what I expect from people like the Emperor. They are counting on the readers to have forgotten what really happened and since the Emperor never incorporated an archive with his site no one can go back and discover the truth he now tries to hide.

 The Second Amendment, etc.

GovernmentAnonymous writes "Oh, so I'm part of the militia!  I never knew that!  Great!  So when is this militia regulated?  When was the last time the militia, apparently existing at all times in all places in the United States since the adoption of the Second Amendment in December 1791, was regulated?  Who regulates it?  Oh the militia itself regulates itself.  Wouldn't the media report such an important occurrence on page 1?  "Citizen Militia To Be Regulated Thursday!  Read All About It!" 

Once again, I do not hate the United States.  I hate genocide, slavery, war, aggression, racism, white supremacy, corporate rule, inequality and environmental devastation.  Insofar as the United States exhibits or has exhibited those qualities I criticize it ... as any responsible citizen would.  Doc Bill is just an uncritical flag-waving jingoist.  There's plenty of people like him watching Sean Hannitty and the rest of the corporate right-wing shock police badgering the people over the head with images of the flag and tales of unique American benevolence.  It's funny, they're like children in adult bodies.

I can't move past the country's unfortunate history because it's still very much part of the country's unfortunate present.  The United States is the biggest purveyor of violence and environmental destruction in the world today.  No other country has combined such brutally aggressive violence over such a long historical time span with such callous disregard for the planetary conditions necessary to sustain human and many other forms of life.  As we speak, the corporate rulers of America are embarking on yet another Middle East War, in partnership with the Arab dictatorships, to combat an enemy U.S. policy itself created.  There was no al Qaeda in Syria or Iraq before George W. Bush's criminal invasion and occupation, complete with mass killing of Arab civilians, systemic torture and mass confinement at various global prison camps like Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  Does that mean I hate America?  I think it means I want America to modify itself to conform to good citizenship as one of many state representatives of the human species.  I would like my daughter and future generations to live peacefully and sustainably on Earth.  I think my critique comes out of love, not hate ... I'll let the reader decide.

Which countries have worse environmental records than the United States?  Maybe China has pulled ahead just because of the fact it has 1 billion more people?  No serious argument can be made for any other society having a more negative impact on the environment than the United States.

Which countries have worse records with violence and war than the United States since the dawn of colonial America?  Native American genocide, expansionist war in Mexico, Central America, the Philippines, U.S. occupation of Cuba, Nicaragua, etc.  American support for hideous right-wing dictatorships after WWII the world over with incalculable victims.  America's horrific slaughter of the people of Vietnam, chemical warfare (napalm, Agent Orange, etc), dropping more tonnage on the Vietnamese than was used in the entirety of WWII, just brutal violence with millions of victims, destabilizing Cambodia, creating the conditions for the Khmer Rouge [as Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama created the conditions for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria].  I mean I haven't even gotten to the Reagan slaughters in Central America, support for Guatemalan military genocide against Mayan villagers, Reagan's support for right-wing Apartheid states in southern Africa, Clinton's brutal sanctions regime in Iraq killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children in the 1990's.  I don't need to even mention the war of terror that has been America's "War on Terror," with its mass killing, drone terror, torture, and destabilization and the resulting misery from North Africa through the Arab Middle East, to Afghanistan and Pakistan.  In pursuit of its system of corporate capitalism and military hegemony of as much of the planet and human species as it can dominate, the United States has a unique commitment to violence [oh yeah, and the whole gun culture thing at home where rational people have to argue with Captain Ed about the relevance of a 1791 amendment passed in a world before the instruments of death and destruction we endure today].

Doc Bill's even defending the 3/5 compromise now!  Wow.  Allowing the southern slave regime to inflate its Congressional representation by including 3/5 of people with no human, political or other rights whatsoever.  Well, that is a pretty good example of Doc Bill's idea of freedom and democracy.  It's amazing that he has the gall to actually publicize such positions.

Oh yeah, Frederick Douglass was a progressive by the way.  And the Western Hemisphere without the United States?  Um, a progressive Canada, Native American entity, and Latin America?  Sounds pretty good to me.  Brazil, Venezuela, and the rest of the left-wing societies in Latin America finally throwing off the shackles of U.S. imperialism as they've done in the 21st century?  One of the great achievements for humankind amid all the U.S.-imposed misery over the same period.  There is hope for humanity ... it's just not centered in Corporate USA.

GovernmentAnonymous writes "Yes, the Second Amendment is all about the militia. Apparently that, at least, got through all the clutter in Peace's brain. 

WHO ARE THE MILITIA? As George Mason stated it is THE WHOLE PEOPLE!

The militia of the Second Amendment is composed of the citizens as Captain Ed explained. The Second Amendment is not primarily about hunting, target shooting or even self protection though these are immensely important features of it. 

Peace's hatred of the United States is well doc-umented by his posts overt the years so it comes as no surprise that this hatred is extended to the Founding Fathers of the United States. There is no doubt that the Founders were fallible human beings but even with such human failings they were able to create the worlds greatest doc-uments creating the worlds greatest country.

Peace cannot move past the country's unfortunate history with slavery and the maltreatment of the native inhabitants and more. In his mind these facts negate everything good the country has done in its 200+ years of existence. How does the US compare to the rest of the world? 

Just about every other country on the planet has a worse record than the US and this is especially true of monarchies and dictatorships. I leave open this small space for the possibility of a country having a better record than the US though I cannot think of one. Some of the worst atrocities have been committed by countries formed over the past 50+ years.

Peace loves to harangue us with the negative history of the US and constantly uses these facts to support his convoluted ideology. However, when I or someone else uses history to point out the truth that history is somehow irrelevant, old fashioned and no longer viable. 

I suppose we should then disregard Frederick Douglass who said of the Constitution in 1852, "Interpreted as it ought to be interpreted, the Constitution is a glorious liberty doc-ument." 

But, then, progressives have been wrongly interpreting the Constitution since their political ideology came together in the 19th century. They consistently twist the plain meaning of words and provisions with their own twisted definition of words and twisted thinking (logic.) I have to qualify the use of the word "logic" as progressives are incapable of using logic as people commonly do. With all their straw man distractions from reality progressive logic is illogical.

Such twisting and misinterpretation is plain for all to see when one considers the Three-Fifths Compromise. To progressives this provision means that blacks are worth only three-fifths of whites. Douglass understood this provision to be the anti-slavery provision that it was. 

This is all meaningless to Peace. To him and those who think as he does it would have been far better that there be no US then to have this compromise. Of course, what this continent would look like politically without the US is beyond the thought process of Peace and progressives like him. 

Think about what we would have now had the US never been formed! Would the continent or the world be better off? 

I think not!

 Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

GovernmentParanoid writes "Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology

Dear World Citizens:

I have read a number of articles from your Internet outreach as well as articles from other sources about the casualties in Liberia and other West African countries about the human devastation caused by the Ebola virus. About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of Liberia,” saying that African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated. A response from Dr. Verlon Stone said that the article was not theirs, and that “Friends of Liberia” was simply providing a service. He then asked if he could publish my letter in their Internet forum. I gave my permission, but I have not seen it published. Because of the widespread loss of life, fear, physiological trauma, and despair among Liberians and other West African citizens, it is in*****bent that I make a contribution to the resolution of this devastating situation, which may continue to recur, if it is not properly and adequately confronted. I will address the situation in five (5) points:

 How Social Engineers Syphon Human Energy

GovernmentParanoid writes "Cinemas and TVs are spiritual sucking stations

by Zen GardnerHave you ever wondered about all these rousing freedom fighting movies and “outnumbered little guy gets back” scenarios? Don’t they seem counter-productive to the cause of the contained control world we’re being shoe-horned into?In a world of manipulation and social engineering, why would so many heavily promoted dramas regarding rebellion against totalitarian control, and even specifically against a mechanistic, fascist future, be so prevalent?

Think about how you feel after one such moving media event. Spent. You might identify with Braveheart or Leonidas and the 300 and every sinew in your body is pulsing with getting back at the Man. You feel vindicated in your convictions. “Yes, it’s always been this way and it’s so right to stand up to such obvious oppression and fight to the finish! I so relate and feel that!”

Do you see that happening? Why do you think the droids of Orwell’s 1984 were encouraged to participate in the “2 minutes of hate” against the staged enemy of the day?

Think maybe they knew this innate craving to rebel had to be vented? Sure don’t want it directed at the Elite PTBs now, do we?

 Doc Bill, Captain Ed and Dumb Americans Generally

CommunityAnonymous writes "What is it with right-wing worshippers of corporate dictatorship and gun violence like Bill and Ed using titles like "Doc" and "Captain" as if to manufacture some kind of authority to spew their uneducated drivel?  I mean what kind of a conceited Nazi prick would title an opinion piece "The Truth"? 

I am so sick of listening to these slave-owner worshippers talk about the intent of the founders.  Who cares what the slave-owners, militarists, bankers and racists who founded the genocidal expansionist white supremacist world conquering ecosystem-destroying gas and oil-guzzling planet destroying United States intended?  Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia are not the only people with opinions on the Constitution.  Thomas Paine, one of the actual democrats who participated in the revolution, wrote eloquently about not enslaving the living to the commands of generations past.  Even if Doc and Captain's idiotic commentary on the 2nd Amendment was actually what the so-called founders intended, we the living still shouldn't give a s*** unless we wanted to live as abject slaves to people who lived before evolution, before airplanes, before industrial capitalism, before nuclear weapons and before the kinds of "arms" Americans routinely possess in the 21st century.

But they are not correct.  The 2nd Amendment clearly talks about a right to keep and bear arms in the context of a well-regulated militia.  The right was clearly framed in what is now a completely antiquated context.  If they intended for any American at any time to have a right to own any conceivable firearm then they would have written the damn thing that way, and they would have written that the 2nd Amendment should never ever ever ever be questioned by any future generation of Americans.  But they didn't write that.  Anybody who thinks George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and company would oppose restrictions on gun ownership when weapons are so much more lethal and gun terror against civilians and children is such an obvious problem in the United States is so ideologically rigid that it really defies human understanding.  [one should also bear in mind that the amendments were not solely products of the narrow group of "founders" but were passed by Congress theoretically representing the people etc etc.  To try and disentangle some monolithic "original intent" from such a broad constituency of 18th century property-owning white American males is an exercise in futility.  Doc and Captain's lengthy, boring contortions to try and justify the NRA/Republican Party Line is crude barely veiled propaganda and should be dismissed by any thinking American.]

Instead of beating around the bush, why don't Bill and Ed simply come out and explain directly why they support the indiscriminate killing of schoolchildren and 9-year-old girls blowing off gun instructors heads with Uzis.  And don't hide behind 18th century white elites.  Tell us what you really think.

 The Truth

StuffAnonymous writes "I find it interesting that the same slugs on the other site are telling Captain Ed to get lost. A few are trying to connect him and me. At the very least they claim he is a carbon copy of me. If he keeps posting it won't be too long before they make the false claim that he and I are the same just as they claimed Paranoid and I were the same individual. The simple truth of the matter is that these individuals are afraid of the truth. Captain Ed is telling like it is and they cannot stand that reality. These individuals have to live in their fanciful utopian universe and condemn anything or anyone who challenges their religiously held beliefs.

I also found the history lesson by George M. Clark to be extraordinarily valuable. He has provided an excellent explanation of the reasoning behind the Second Amendment. He emphasized the fact that the true understanding of that amendment and the entire Constitution is dependent upon understanding the meaning of the words used by the writers as they were defined at the time. As I explained some time ago just as in contracts one has to determine, to the best degree of understanding possible, what the intent of the parties was at the time a contract, or provision of a contract, the agreement was reached. 

Since the Founding Fathers were prolific writers it is far easier to understand what were their intentions 200+ years later then it is to understand the intent of negotiators who agreed to a contract provision that could be years or decades old when some have retired, died, moved away or are unavailable for other reasons.

Mr. Cclark has provided the reader with a excellent opportunity to understand why the Second Amendment is there as well as what it means. Interpreting this amendment or any other provision of the Constitution without applying the definitions of words the Founders understood the words to mean will keep you from realizing the truth.

Those who oppose the private ownership of firearms continually misinterpret the Second Amendment and erroneously apply today's definitions of the words to fit their preconceived belief that private citizens have no need for firearms of any kind. This convoluted thinking and application of meaning is typical of those who seek to empower the government at the expense of the freedom of the individual.

Mr. Clark's partial family history also grabbed my attention as my grandparents also came from that same region of Eastern Europe. They too came to the US prior to WWI. There is no relationship between Mr. Clark and I so you idiots can disabuse yourselves of any claim to the contrary though I doubt that will dissuade you. Your myopic view of reality and ignorance of basic truths make it impossible for you to believe that more than just one or two people could disagree with your belief system. As many progressives said in 1968, "I don't know anyone who voted for Nixon. How could he have won?"
