Those in support of gun control are very, very often far, far more of a knee-jerk reactionary type than anyone opposed to it, simply because they always wait for someone to die and immediately throw out a law that they say would have prevented it, but actually would NOT have, and use the emotional force of the death of an innocent to further their own agenda. And personally? That's fucking sick.

I'd say that knee-jerk reactions are pretty much common to a lot of belief systems, pro or anti gun control. 9/11 and the PATRIOT act spring to mind, didn't pretty much all of congress unite behind that one?


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

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.

And i completely agree that Bowling was a great film or movie i just didnt like it winning an oscar for a cadegory it really didnt belong in. Its no doubt that moore uses his narratration in a persuasive manner with decieving info. This just doesnt fit the standards for an oscar.

i mean i love al franken and i find him very funny but i just take most of what he says with a grain of salt just like jon stewart. Now Moore should be treated like this yet instand they gave him an oscar documentary.

I mean the movie was great and funny and entaining and all but then it won an oscar for documentary and Moore was acting all serious. wtf?

Sorry for any mistakes due to inebriation




Fair enough.

Misinformation used to combat greedy corporations and the like is STILL misinformation.
Besides, fighting fire with fire is old hat.

How is it fire with fire, Michael Moore isn't waging wars on Countries saying they have weapons of mass distruction when obviously do not. And yes those big buisnesses do have something to do with the war, Haliburton for one they need oil.

Both Michael Moore and his enemies utilize misinformation to make their point.

I didn't think I had to explain everything in such detail.

Thank you sir tripsalot, Michael Moore tries very hard to give sources to the things that he has to say. He has teams of researchers making sure what he says is true. I mean If you dont want to believe him thats fine, but if you are going to try to make people feel stupid the least you could do is give some examples.

Actually the last thread I remember had Michael Moores Rebuttle website that completely cleared all rumours about BFC. I mentioned it in my post. So I guess it's settled, he did not lie.

Misinformation is not always in the form of a lie. Sometimes it's how you explain things. Rhetoricians know this.

Just do a search of this forum for Moore and you'll see this has been beat to death which is why the interest is so low.

Moore is an asshole.


--------------------
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

If you want to prove a point, it is up to you to provide the evidence. Otherwise... your point loses validity.

Have you not been reading the whole thread. The proof is already there in mass quantities. I'm not going to provide it time after time when it is already there. Jesus h christ there is a search function. Maybe you should have to pass a test to use these forums.
