I was thinking it would be pretty cool if, at a certain time and date, in a show of solidarity, American gun owners fired shots into the air.  A "shot heard round the world" so to speak.  I think it could be a very powerful message, but without the right "legalese" in the "call to action" it could go horribly wrong.

Sorry about all the commas and quotes.

Yep. Just word it right and it couldn't possibly go horribly wrong.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

And if everyone involved remembers those bullets have to land somewhere, eventually. Don't just fly up into space, ya know.
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.

I like the guy on the right, you can tell he's thinking that if he ignores it, it won't ever happen. The guy on the left looks like he is thinking about it.

Yeah, the body language is almost too perfect.

Wow, THAT'S not a completely retarded idea for too many reasons to enumerate.

I think it's a great idea, if it's restricted to Texas and Phoenix.

 :lol:  I love Erin Burnett.  Really missed her on CNBC, but glad CNN has given her a show of her own.

Wow, she's a stupid cunty tool of the 1% who completely misses the point. What a puppet.

Actually, I take it back. She's not stupid, she knows EXACTLY what she's doing.

BUT NIGEL, DIDNT YOU KNOW TAXPAYERS MADE MONEY ON THE WALL STREET BAILOUT???

(ignore that they only actually made money on TARP...one minor part of a much larger bailout...and, oh yeah, some fuckers in Congress are like "government spending is socialism and evil" and so refused to spend the money in their states, so actually, the Treasury made money on the bailouts...and then lost it due to the giant black hole of further loans to financial institutions and neverending foreign war.  But MONEY WAS MADE!  Stupid hippies can go home now, everything is OK.  The 9% unemployment rate is just a temporary blip, a hiccup in the natural order of things.  Sucks if you starve due to it, though, I guess.  Oh well).

Okay ... what exactly did you like about that segment? From where I'm sitting, all she communicated was that she didn't understand the protests in the slightest.

It's summed up pretty well by the title of the segment "Seriously??" - that is to say, her objection is purely tonal, not substantive. It's like debating with somebody who's only rebuttal is "Come on, really?"

First half of the video: commentary that the protest didn't look protesty enough. They were wearing DESIGNER CLOTHES. OMG.

Second bit: she cherry picks an unemployed software developer and informs him that taxpayers made money on the bailout. He says he did not know that, and she basically rolls her eyes at him. This is irrelevant because (a) the protests are barely about the bailouts, (b) the dude's unemployed -- is this supposed to comfort him?

Third bit: A factoid about how much money taxpayers made on the bailout. Who is this addressing? Do you know anybody who feels that they "made money" on the bailouts? She is not investigating the reasons for the protests, she's just reframing them as a non-issue. And in doing so, she chooses to do a style column instead of journalism.

My reply to you will be a pager at least Cram, but I can't do it right this moment.  I'll sit down when I get home and hammer it out.
