meh, go ahead and demonize  him,

So, the truth about someone is "demonizing" that person?

However, having done a bit of digging, I have confused Ventura with a Wisconsin governor, and so it wasn't the truth.  Argument retracted.

This post.  The one you quoted.  The one that followed the statement quoted above.

alright, to me it looked like the claim that this was a publicity stunt was separate from the claim that he hates roads and schools. You retracted the roads and schools bit, it wasn't clear to me that the publicity stunt point was automatically retracted too. My bad.

Well, I think then that I'll just bow out of this conversation.

Can't it be a publicity stunt, a defense of our privacy, a play for personal gain, and a fight for constitutional rights all at the same time?


I mean, really.

He just wants the DHS off his back whenever he decides to lug that minigun around to remind us that he was in a boring film ninety years ago.

Maybe he understands the fucking constitution and wants strange people to stop groping him.

Yea, this. At least it seems like a step in the right direction, whatever his motivations. And frankly, his "celebrity" and his financial resources (which I imagine are at least more significant than your average Joe Schmoe) will likely enable him to put more of a spotlight on the issue and to throw more money and lawyers at the case, moreso than the average person who probably couldn't maintain a lawyer to keep throwing paperwork back at the opposing side, who will likely just try to bury you in paperwork and procedure before the case even goes anywhere. Even it is a losing battle and even if he is doing it for publicity, maybe it will help turn a public eye back to the issue (publicity's not always bad) because, hey, Someone From TV is in trouble!
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.

Well, I see that you have been keeping your standard-issue, jaded cynicism in fine working order.

Nah, you were absolutely in the right. It was just a sad case of blue-on-blue. I have a scheme going in the other window that requires me to post a lot of low volume white noise to a forum.

No, considering that he's a disabled frequent flier, what the fuck? I'm hearing about a lot of poor fucks with ostomy bags getting a hard time too. One young guy, bladder cancer outpatient, ended up soaked in his own piss, and they didn't even give him fresh clothes.
