So yeah. This is apparently an actual thing.

I need a kitty right fucking now okay.

I mean, I know I shouldn't be surprised, considering the unceasing plague of 9/11 Truthers and Birthers. Though Birthers (you know, the utter crackpots that are convinced President Obama is secretly foreign) seem relatively less disgusting compared to this.



It's all the usual question begging bullshit, pattern hunting and being bizarrely startled that coincidences and similarities are things that happen despite the fact that they happen constantly every day of our lives. This just makes me extra angry because it's a bunch of paranoid nuts dancing on the graves of children, mocking the grief of their families because they've convinced themselves that it's all fake and therefore it is all right to be utterly inhumane to other people.

I need a kitten or I'm going to have an aneurysm, I swear to fucking god.

I think what just pisses me off the most about this is that the entire justification for this conspiracy theory is that the government is going to take all our guns away! The way that straw man has been getting shoved down our throats, we're all going to be shitting chaff for the next three years.



It's like the making shit up Olympics - creating a sadistically unfeeling conspiracy out of whole cloth to justify something that no one is even proposing. Oh yeah, and being mean to the grieving father of a murdered little girl because that's totally okay when you don't live on the same plane of reality as the rest of us. Hey assholes. If you took off your tinfoil hat for five seconds, maybe you could read our brainwaves and get that we don't want your fucking guns.

Lookit that adorable kitty, helping with the laundry, and his adorable face. Breathe. Breathe.

Perhaps I speak only for myself, but you know what I do want? I want you to grow the fuck up. I want you to develop some empathy. I want you to leave your basement and get some professional help. I want you to have a grownup conversation with the rest of us instead of making like a seagull and shitting everywhere while shrieking at the top of your lungs.



I want you to realize that the world is a scary place, but the way you can truly make it less scary is to grasp reality with one hand, the rest of humanity with the other, and refuse to let go.

Kitten. Kitten kitten kitten.

i come from a country where the government did take all our guns away, in fact it went, actually fuck it you can't have them, and if we find you with one we'll shoot you, somewhere painful

it works for us, you're much more likely to be knifed
but the thing is as i understand it they're not trying to take all the guns away (although possibly should) but instead saying hmmmm mr homeowner so why do you need that assault rifle or rocket launcher or ex military tank, good reason or no, bad homeowner.

and the funny thing is the second amendment doesn't give everyone the right to a gun, it allows them to bear (ie carry) arms in the service of a militia. You don't need them, they have no purpose other than killing things - at least a knife can also cut cheese, serve as a screwdriver, pin things to the wall....

but then again I come from Belfast and I lost people and my family lost people to shootings so the idea of anyone with them leaves me cold

I've grown up in the western US, and known a lot of people that hunted, for example. I can't really advocate getting rid of all guns. But it sure looks nice in other countries where they don't have them at all. All this insurrectionist bullshit makes me batty.

that's just it, we can go and buy a shotgun for hunting, but we have to jump through all manner of hoops to get one, including proving safe storage etc, and then it's only shotguns and rifles, and they're controlled too, so you can't get like a 12 bore shotgun,
we have to provide license information to buy a bow, but we can get them (not sure where you'd get them but you can)
you have to provide ID to buy an edged knife, even a cooking one
and then get a hunting license, permission from the owner to hunt there... it's a pain but it is possible
I have a cousin who goes hunting every week for rabbit and pheasant, he also fishes a lot and given the opportunity would be one of those survivalist nutjobs that's lived in the woods so long he's forgotten how to talk

but the idea that I can walk into a store in the highstreet and get a gun that i can pick up a week later, that's just....
yanno
it makes the brain hurt

So...wow... I didn't make it all the way through the article with all the red I was seeing as I read it. Ugh! What is wrong with people?!?

Totally agree. Also, I will note that the only gov't conspiracy that's come out in the past few years has been the Bush Administration lying about WMD's in Iraq. I guess if your own party is willing to lie to you the paranoia starts to come even easier. -_-
