The Connecticut school shooting that killed 27 -- including up to 20 children -- horrified Hollywood along with the rest of the nation, prompting one of the most pro-gun control segments of the country to again demand better restrictions and more mental health services. The shooting at a Newtown grade school came just months afer July´s deadly "Dark Knight Rises" shooting in a theater in Aurora, Colo. Filmmakers and actors used their celebrity to plead for change on Twitter. "Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late," tweeted "Bowling for Columbine" director Michael Moore.
Comments: Celebutards rush in to grab some attention for themselves.
It´s not gun control that will solve the problem of out of control people. It is the culture...you know, when a comic (and I use that term very loosely) says that he gets to shoot all the white people and the audience roars with laughter. Hey, really smart. Or when children play for hours and hours on end, games that are amazingly violent. Parents much too interested in their own world. The humanity of this country is gone and the "cool" people are responsible.
#7 Is right the liberals have banned prayer in the schools, banned the Ten Commandments from our courts, they have approved abortion-the killing of innocent children and so God has left us alone. We need to repent and pray that God will heal our land. Perhaps if more sane citizens exercised their 2nd Amendment right and carried there would be fewer innocents killed by complete evil crazy people intend on doing others harm.
These filthy whores and whore-mongers promote the violence in the first place, with their foul mouth languish, their violent movies and videos, their shoving God out of everything and the murdering of the UN-born, THEY should keep their nasty mouths shuts and be Shunned!! This is no time for these perverts to come out now.
They would be just as dead if they were shot with an illegal weapon. (Connecticut has gun control, doesn´t it?) And the hypocrisy of the Hollywood, which spews forth films that celebrate gun violence, torture and killing in general, cannot be overstated.
Another internet article today notes that in China an individual went into a school and slashed 22 people. Is there a possibility that a person with a knife can injure/kill more individuals in a closed setting than with a gun. The gun creates a loud sound that is heard throughout the building and alerts others to a potential problem, whereas a knife attack does not do so to the same degree, especially with small children that frequently are loud, for good or bad reasons.
Many of these celebrities have bodyguards carrying guns, and some of the celebrities themselves have guns. So Michael Moore, et al, check out your own house first before taking to the microphone. We still may not go along with you, but at least it will add more plausibility when you open your mouths without a movie script in front of you.
Human life is cheap here in America, so if you have a gripe, go on a murder spree, after all, that´s what our leaders in the GOV have legalized since 1973 at the tune of approx 1.2 million per year. It´s not change in our right to bear arms that´s needed, it´s our reaffirmation of the dignity of human life. As you sew, you will reap. Advocate to kill, you´ve directed to murder.
In times of tragedy, news outlets used to request comments from ministers, priests, and rabbis - now they seek reactions from liberal Hollywood celebrities, the very people who make their lavish livings off of peddling gory and blood-soaked violence and gruesome mayhem. That these shallow and self-absorbed ´celebrities´ would open their hypocritical mouths to comment while this tragedy is unfolding, demonstrates their total disrespect and disconnect (except from each other).
Bloomberg and all the rest of the self haters can go hang for my money,,, there´s 22 thousand gun laws now,,,on a right that the Constitution says "Shall not be infringed". What we need is a registry of folks on psychotropic drugs.....and a whole lot fewer mayors telling us things. Almost all these shoot´em ups happen in states where the most strident laws are in place. One licensed carry and this clown woul npthave made it out of the front hallway.
f My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
I´m thinking #7 has it right. God has told us all along what the problem is. Our government is being internally abused and our nation is approaching chaos. We know how to fix it...let´s do it!
Was Quentin Tarantino unavailable for comment? Anyone ever see Pulp Fiction, or the like? How does senseless, almost joyful violence like that play in a crazy man´s mind, I ask you??? Why don´t the self-righteous Hollywood twits do a little dusting around their neighborhood before they try and clean up this country?
Shut up and sing or act or whatever you for make believe.
We´ve had the right to keep and bear arms for over two centuries and when I was young (in the 50s) there was no such thing as mass shootings in this country. If these Hollywood idiots would like to know what´s changed over the past 40 to 50 years, they should ask Quentin Tarentino or Sam Peckinpaugh or the producers of "Criminal Minds" or the rap "artists" who make millions off bloodthirsty lyrics. THAT´S what´s changed over the past 40 to 50 years. Or to put a finer point on it - Guns don´t kill people - - - senseless violence glorified by Hollywood does.
God help any of those Hollywood harlots and sodomites who try to take away my family´s guns! Let them try! After all every now and then the liberty bell must be covered in blood to keep our freedom refreshed.
Guns of all kinds were easily available long before spree killings became a national concern. To anyone who has lived long enough to witness the changes, it is perfectly obvious that our depraved, nihilistic, violent pop culture is a significant contributor to these terrible crimes. Have fanatical gun control advocates never read the "lyrics" of rap "music" that teenagers, most of them white, consume? Have they no idea what wildly popular video games are like? Do they not watch the pornographic violence on TV and at the movies? Taking such influences and others like them into account, the wonder is not that such massacres are happening, but that they are not (yet) a daily occurrence.
Instead of focusing on the tools of violence, "celebrities" would do far better to crusade to clean up the sewer that popular culture has become. The irony, and the hypocrisy is that many of those demanding more gun control are among the worst polluters and purveyors of the toxic entertainment milieu that makes these awful spree murders virtually inevitable. We should also keep in mind that the damage inflicted on vulnerable minds and souls by the incredibly violent, pornographic, obscene entertainment industry is not limited to shooting massacres, which are (still) rare. Millions of non-violent victims of our poisonous pop culture exist and manifest more subtle but still serious signs of moral damage from prolonged exposure to the trash that is today aggressively peddled to the masses for profit.
It isn´t simply the violence and pornography that is glorified in hollywood, but it is the really, deeply disturbing inmitigated GORE and putrid, perverted depictions of extremely disturbed psychological minds in various renditions that make it so horrible and UNTHINKABLE. The degree of twisted and sick stuff that is shown or described in movies (both long and short), music, television, animation, etc. is what sets off people who are already on the verge of insanity. Those depictions make these sick people think it is okay to act on their urges. I am willing to bet most of you haven´t seen anywhere near the horrific stuff that is out there. If you did, you would be making this a priority issue. No, the left has gladly pushed for an anything goes society and glorified the worst evil. I am very thick-skinned when it comes to seeing blood and guts, but the stuff they show nowadays makes me have lasting nightmares ...it is SO bad.
Amen #24. Blow off the self-important hollywood glitterati and write some tough regulations on psychiatrists who pass out these mood altering drugs like candy. Force people who need "anti-depressant" to at least be observed for 10 days.
I live in Newtown, I live in the Sandy Hook section of Newtown. It is a community of no collar and white collar, we all get along. Its a great place. The shooter was insane. Gun control is not the solution.
Not a peep from the Hollyweirdites about the horrific violence coming out of Hollyweird. Violence in music, violence in movies, violence on tv, violence in games, all can be placed at the door of "Entertainers". Are they calling for any changes to the level of violence they create?
There is NO doubt that someone who supports the means and right of self defense, will be interviewed and will face the usual ´charges´ about the gun culture. They won´t listen and will tune out when it is suggested that merely making a law doesn´t mean the action it is meant to stop, will stop. When will someone interview the ACLU types who fought established law to release mental defectives into the general population?
I say lets ban Hollywood. They have taken violence to new levels over and over again in the name of more money. I wonder why we don´t hear an outcry from Hollywood about the 3000+ babies aborted on 12-14-12. They pick and choose based on their moral character which based on their movies, music and lifestyles leave a lot to desire. Like the kettle calling the pot black.
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. -- The victim of a vicious knockout attack in New Jersey is speaking out for the first time. He was cold-cocked, and hit not just with a fist, but with a glove with hard plastic knuckles. Two of the four attackers are still on the run. "All of a sudden, I was trying to watch my back and these two came around front and punches my face," the victim said. The 36-year-old restaurant worker does not want his name or face on television, and who could blame him? He still has headaches from a concussion and six
Sears stock plummeted Wednesday as news came out that Edward Lampert, its stubborn billionaire chairman and CEO, had to surrender majority control of the 120-year-old big box retailer when investors in Lampert’s hedge fund pulled money out. With no end in sight for Lampert’s quixotic turnaround efforts, it’s time to question whether there’s any way to save Sears as long as he remains in charge. (Snip) Lampert began at Sears with the ill-fated $12 billion merger with Kmart in 2005. Sales have declined for 27 straight quarters and the company’s stock is down over 70% from its high in 2007.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
For many Ann Arborites, Thanksgiving is a day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family, eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions. This year, retail giants want that to change. (Snip) The early openings change the game for retail giants looking to boost profits through aggressive holiday sales. It also means millions of retail employees in the U.S. are working on the holiday, and it poses the question to consumers: Is a bargain on a 70-inch television or an Apple iPad worth ditching Thanksgiving dinner? “You couldn’t pay me to stand in a line in the cold on Thanksgiving
Macy´s Inc and a slew of other U.S. retailers are opening on Thanksgiving for the first time ever in a bare-knuckled brawl for a bigger slice of overall holiday sales. But it might not be so easy to lure most Americans from their turkey and football - particularly if the weather is foul. Department store rivals Kohl´s Corp and J.C. Penney Co Inc led a string of Thanksgiving opening announcements after Macy´s said it would open its U.S. stores on the popular holiday, ending a 155-year tradition. Sales trends, survey results and an online "Save Thanksgiving" backlash suggest that shoppers
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
