As far as I understand it, the reason for the high gun ownership in Switzerland is due to their militia system. They may have lots of guns and rifles, but they are trained during their military service on how to use them responsibly. As far as I'm aware, no such system is widespread in the US.

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Also, considering the abuse that Moore seems to be getting on this thread, how does everyone feel about FOX news? In a recent lawsuit, FOX argued in their defence that it was not against the law to lie or distort the news. How's that for 'Fair and Balanced'?

Quote:


http://www.foxbghsuit.com/ja021903.htm

Accepting a defense rejected by three other Florida state judges in at least six separate motions, a Florida appeals court has reversed the $425,000 jury verdict in favor of journalist Jane Akre who charged she was pressured by Fox Television management and lawyers to air what she knew and documented to be false information.

In a six-page written decision released February 14, the court essentially ruled the journalist never stated a valid whistle-blower claim because, they ruled, it is technically not against any law, rule, or regulation to deliberately lie or distort the news on a television broadcast.

In the lawsuit filed in 1998, Akre claimed she was wrongfully terminated for threatening to blow the whistle to the FCC. After a five-week trial that ended August 18, 2000, a six-person jury was unanimous in its conclusion that she was indeed fired for threatening report the station?s pressure to broadcast what jurors decided was ?a false, distorted, or slanted? story about the widespread use of growth hormone in dairy cows.

In overturning the jury on what amounts to a legal technicality, the court did not dispute the heart of Akre?s claim, that Fox pressured her to broadcast a false story to protect the broadcaster from having to defend the truth in court, as well as suffer the ire of irate advertisers.

Technically correct.

Morally repugnant.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I saw Moore speak at a Green Party Rally, and all I could think was "What a fucking prick!" I can't stand him and I consider myself to be pretty liberal.

It wouldn't be so bad if it hadn't won an award for best "documentary" and were instead sold as a work of fiction.

It wouldn't be bad if he wasn't simply whipping the liberal dogs into a little frenzy so he can soothe his own huge ego.
It wouldn't be so bad if he did a blaine-esque trick tying himself to a lampost for 10 days while people pistol-whip him....

man, I had serious problems with this movie.

especially that southpark style cartoon "History of America", which was so bigoted and one sided it prompted me to throw things at the television.

But on the other hand, it made some very good points apart from its bigoted, sensationalist side. I was very fascinated with the whole Canada thing... Seeing that movie really made me want to move there.

All in all, I say that as long as it is watched with the facts in mind and a keen eye for BS, Bowling for Columbine is at the leasty enetertaining and at the most slightly informative.

PS- my favorite part was the Marylin Manson interview- classic! Mr. Manson really showcased his intelligence on that one.

innvertigo - You could either interpret that as me saying I wish he died, or as me saying that I wish he firsthand got to see what happened there so he might hate "white men" a little less.
