Bury your children and shut up.

You gotta love those gun nut folks. I still can't believe that they heckled the father of a six year old child who was slaughtered at Newtown.

"Parents of children killed in the Newtown school shooting called for better enforcement of gun laws and tougher penalties for violators Monday at a hearing that revealed the divide in the gun-control debate, with advocates for gun rights shouting at the father of one 6-year-old victim.

Neil Heslin, whose son Jesse was killed in last month's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, asked people in the room to put themselves in his position as he questioned the need for any civilian to own semiautomatic, military-style weapons.

"It's not a good feeling. Not a good feeling to look at your child laying in a casket or looking at your child with a bullet wound to the forehead. It's a real sad thing," said Heslin, who held up a large framed photograph of himself and his son." [Source]

And speaking of guns, I need to know just WTF is going on in Chicago? Eighteen murders over the first ten days of the year and five murders this past weekend alone. Last year you hit the 500 murder mark in the windy city. It couldn't be because the Cubs suck. They have sucked for awhile now, and you all weren't shooting each other like the city is one big f*****g violent video game until recently.

Over at my man Rippa's website he has the story of a woman who lost four children to gun violence. FOUR! Mr. Obama, you should be crying with that lady at a press conference in the White House. You are from Chicago, maybe the knuckle heads there will listen to you, because they sure as hell ain't listening to anybody else.

Anyway, we need to come up with some serious answers to these killings taking place in some of these cities across America. (And I don't mean the dumb s*** that racist conservatives like Bill O'Reilly like to say. Bill doesn't think that it's bad parenting, poverty, easy access to guns, or any of those issues that is causing the uptick in gun violence. No sir, Bill believes that it's because "white people stopped buying drugs in the hood". Brilliant!)

Hopefully we can find some solutions quickly, or places like Chicago will be ghost towns before we know it.

*On a personal note, I will be on the aforementioned Rippa's blog cast tomorrow night talking about gun control and the issue of urban violence. I don't like to do blog talk radio, but Rippa and I go way back, so it's all good.

Just this once, yawdie.

O'Really? just got his ass handed to him by Colin Powell.

Chi-Town is at 40 murders already.

You lying leftist scum, repeating this vile hoax!

A guy giving a press conference demanded an answer and, after waiting for an answer for five seconds, received an answer. This was portrayed as being monstrously "heckled" by cruel right-wingers.

It's all propaganda all the time for the Lamestream Media.

Instead of counting on MSNBC, which blatantly edited the video, watch the undedited version:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_wKQaWUMGE&feature=player_embedded

The money shot of the video is at 15:20, when the guy -- a grieving parent of a son murdered at Newtown -- demands to know what possible reason anyone could offer that AR-15s should be legal.

At first you might think this is a rhetorical question; the audience in fact takes it as rhetorical, and doesn't answer. Then he scans around the room, looking for someone to answer, and, as everyone's silent, concludes, as he'd intended, that no one has a good answer.

At that point, people realize that their respectful silence is being taken for assent, and they begin chiming in "The second amendment."

What is completely clear when watching the whole video, Heslin was not heckled. Gun rights advocates in the audience indeed voiced their support for the Second Amendment — after he asked why anyone would need “assault-style weapons or high-capacity clips.” You’d never know based on the MSNBC version, which completely cut out the footage of Heslin’s question.

Anderson Cooper has already deleted his tweets expressing outrage over this issue. What's the matter, didn't you check your inbox for your latest Media Matters instructions? Or do you just figure your target audience is low-information enough they'll believe anything?

As I read your post I see that you could just as well be talking about the situation here on the island.

Just yesterday they buried a young man who was shot in a neighborhood game of basketball because called a foul

And another young man was shot last night point blank because he had "disrespected" another during an argument.

It's like the wild west here right now. :(

Super and sadly scary...

Please tell what time it will be and enjoy yourself on the cast and I hope I can get to listen on the device or hear the recorded replay sometime,

That's good you can't believe it because you shouldn't' MSNBC once again deliberately doctored the tape to make a story that is not true a propaganda tool.

Slate retracted the story on this.

MSNBC fake editing of Zimmerman tape, Fake editing of Romney campaign and oh so much more, what a sleazeball sharptonized outfit they have become.

First of all, O'Reilly was right. Most of the killings are gang related and they are fighting over drug turf that's shrinking due to the economy. Their big customers have always been Whites. Well, Whites are buying as much because of poor economic conditions.

Hence, things are a little tough for the Disciples and their competitor. They are going at it for control over a shrinking market. Mr Field, you don't know shit. O'Reilly might not know a lot, but he knows more than you. Hell, any brother from the hood would tell your ass the same thing that O'Reilly knew.

You need to step outside your White neighborhood and learn a thing or two about the hood in Chicago. Of course, you are an Obamaholic while the brothers in Chicago ain't too crazy about him....never have been. But you have to be from Chicago to know that.

"Hopefully we can find some solutions quickly, or places like Chicago will be ghost towns before we know it."

You probably meant "or places like Chicago will become like Detroit".
Ninety percent of all the violence in Chicago is perpetrated on the south and west sides. Any idea who lives there? I'll give you one guess.

White people don't do that.

There is a cultural problem, and it's not the gun culture.

Obama is using the Newton tragedy to try to disarm white America, when the actual gun mayhem is taking place in non-white areas.

He is the biggest piece of Marxist shit on the planet.

Wesley R said...

Regarding Chicago, A Chicago Police Officer called in a talk show I was listing to one day and said 1,200 Officers retired. Emanuel has only filled 200 of those positions. So they are minus 1,000 who should be patrolling the street. A couple of years back the feds came in and shut down Chicago's Gang Task Force because they were whipping ass and take the gangbanger's money. The murders shot up after that.

Purple Cow just cuts and pastes from the Guardian - he doesn't even know what he is posting. He should stick to things he does know about, like soccer and fat blonde white women.

PilotX is similar, except his source is MSNBC. His style is to call white people dumb trailer trash, brag about his AA salary, and wait for a pat on his wooly head from Field.

PilotX said...

"Attacks"??? Ha, you mean ignorant rantings from imbeciles that don't know the difference between communism and socialism. Yeah, I'm so wounded how will I ever carry on.

Anyhoo, we know why there is violence in Chicago. The same reason there was violence 70 some years ago, a lack of opportunity and an underground economy fueled by prohibition. We can deal with it and B should legalize certain drugs to take out the illegal profits which might help in the short term but longterm we need better schools and a real rehabilitation of ex-offenders.

PilotX said...

Ha! "Literally" beating the shit out of me? Field, your trolls are dumb.

Thanks for your concern anonotroll but I'm fine.

Mr Field, I can't believe you posted anon's comments about PilotX and PC for them to see. It hurts them.

I am sure Anon did not plan on that. Why O Why did you post that comment? PilotX has enough fucking problems dodging bullets on the Southside of Chicago than to have this shame laid on him.

And poor, poor PC doesn't deserve this either. He doesn't even live in America. He renounced his American Citizenship a long time ago in order to become a Brit. Hey, I just realized that PC and Tina Turner have something in common. And they also married White, too.

The GOP sends its blessings with: "You Negroes made a good move. Please send for your relatives, and Pleeeeze don't come back."

Sorry no can do, he's the man as far as I'm concerned, but my devotion only goes so far.

Yes Pilot X does a pretty good job of slapping around trolls all by himself.:)

I saw that clip of Powell on with the racist Irishman. Now I really do think wingnuts are insane.How could they think that OLiely got the better of Powell in that interview? It's his show and Powell still made him look like the petty, ill-informed, megalomaniac that he is.

Fields, It is all over the net, there are a bunch of nuts claiming the Newtown school was a fake that didn't happen but was an act put on by Obama so he could bring up gun control.
people are crazy and there are a lot of crazy people running around besides the naked man climbing on the bus in Philly.

I wonder why the commander in chief REFUSES to address the Drug War which fuels the tremendous profits (Hence The Vior the Private Prison Industry....???

Maybe hes still afraid of what the scary Republicans might say....

Maybe he doesnt want to draw the Ire from Wall St.... as much of their profits are tied up in illegal global money laundering....

Either way....
This SERIOUS conversation about the REAL reasons for this violence in inner cities can NEVER be discussed by a weak straddle the fence type of President....

There are cash-strapped governments, and there are broke governments. And then there's Zimbabwe, which, after paying last week's government salaries, has just $217 in the bank. No, we didn't forget any zeroes to the end of that figure. Zimbabwe, the country that's home to some of the world's largest plutonium and diamond reserves, is literally as rich as a 14-year-old girl after a really good birthday party.

Formerly known as the "Breadbasket of Africa" (when it was Rhodesia), Zimbabwe today is just a scaled up Detroit.

True, President Obama needs to go to Chicago and listen to the families who have lost loved ones. But he isn't. And the bigger question is "Why havent WE gone to Washington to demand that he do something about Chicago?" Why? Because we are too busy praying that this mess will stop. Asking God to bless these families. Telling each other to keep our faith. First they used it to enslave us, then they used it to steal our land. Christianity and our love of money and status has us on our knees. Shhhhh. Al? NAACP? Black Panthers? Mr Rich - T Jakes? Maya? Wives of Atla? Spike Lee? Sisterhood? LeBron? All the folks who wore "Hoodies" for Travon? All the Brothers and Sisters who were paid big money to perform at the white house recently? Why didn't they slip Obama a note? Just like all our music that calls women bitches and hoes, they arent talking about me - so why should I care? I don't live in Chicago. They aren't shooting at me - so why should I do anything about it? Besides, I make any waves and I might lose my job. How can I pay for my pagan Indian hair weave if I lose my job? Pay for those Jordens? My Preacher told me I can be as abundant as he is. Once we were Kings and Queens. We BUILT this country. And we don't have anything to say about an amendment (the 2nd one) to the constitution that insured white citizens had guns so they could put down Slave rebellions. There isn't a mason in Atla that is worth more than our world history.

HA! PC refused to get involved defending his folks. Now I see why he married White. He's a two-timing Negro. But I can't blame him. Who in their right mind would defend a Negro with a name like PilotX, who can barely fly a plane and lives on the Southside of Chicago?

Let me stop. I'm sorry PilotX. I know you got a lot of shit to worry about without me slapping your weak ass around. PS. I know a good brother who does therapy on the Southside cheaply "if" you should ever "need" one. Correction: If you should ever humble yourself to go see one. Because everybody knows you need one.

I am an east coast Liberal Democrat who, sadly moved to TN under false pretenses. Now I am stuck here, having lost my job, am disabled and have no money to leave this God forsaken place. I would like to connect to people who are like minded as I am stuck in my home without a car or money. I figure the Internet is the best way.

I don't like to read things that don't conform to my rigid worldview. I can't conceive of why that might be. Hell, I can't even spell "politics".

I should probably just die.

Now that Obama has been safely re-elected, the economic bad news can be released again:

A stunner out of the BEA which just reported a Q4 GDP of -0.1% that was leaps and bounds below the 1.1% estimate, and a plunge from Q3's 3.1%. The factors: Private Inventories, Exports and Government Expenditures all of which contracted, by -1.27%, -0.81%, and -1.33%. The silver lining was in Personal Consumption Expenditures which added 1.52% to the negative print, most of it however driven by a surge in spending ahead of the fiscal cliff. Ironically, this was the biggest government-driven detraction from growth since Q1 2011, when GDP led to a -1.49% cut in the GDP, same in Q4 when government spending on defense fell the most since 1972. The solution is simple: print moar drones. Enter Mali. And since everything is now AMZN-ing, we can't wait for the spin that the GDP's margins were actually better than expected, leading to a 200 point surge in the DJIA.

You have got to be kidding. It is clear to anybody, Black or White that O'Reilly handed Powell his ass. Even your regular FN fans with ID's remain quiet about the interview because they know the truth.

Mr Field, you are an extremist when it comes to race. Hence, your judgment is quite warped. Regardless, the fact is O'Reilly romped over Powell, which, I am sure, made you cringe inside.
