Funnyman Jim Carrey joins a long list of celebrity liberals who think the lives of those who share a different philosophy than theirs may not be worth all that much. Just consider the hate that poured out from the Left when former Vice President Dick Cheney received a heart transplant. In Carrey´s case, he views citizens who embrace the legal right to arm themselves as, well, let the "Ace Ventura" star take it from here: (Tweet) Fellow Twitter users quickly fired back at the comic actor, who has yet to respond
I wonder how many armed security guards he has on his property. I guess his life is more worthy of protection than an average Joe´s? I thought the liberal champions of the 99% would think everyone was worthy of protection, not just the elite few in politics and the entertainment industry.
The movie they should have cited in the story is Dumb and Dumber, not Ace Ventura.
These lib celebrities kill their careers. I make it a a point not to ever watch, go to a movie, pay attention to anything they do ever again. That includes Barb Streinsand, and all the other movie nitwits on the scene. Go away!
A remarkable sight, a washed up mediocre comedian and actor hammering the last nail into the coffin that represents his flop of a career by alienating a nation of gun owners who constitute the majority of the movie going public. Bravo Jim Carrey for your epic stupidity and thanks to you we will not be seeing you bombing on the silver screen anytime soon.
Of course, that is the progressive belief, isn´t it? THEY decide which lives are worth saving. From prochoicers advocating abortion, to Sunstein deciding seniors´ lives are not worth prolonging, to Holdren advocating population reduction, it is a very short hop indeed to forced starvation in the Ukraine or nazi death camps or North Korean prison camps.
Mr. Carrey attended Catholic schools, and presumably had some education on American values and constitutional guarantees before he became a citizen. It appears he retained nothing from any of it.
"any1 who rushes out and tries to make political points and legislative rules that punish/criminalize people who were NO WHERE NEAR Newtown...has no heart or soul..yet those of us who "Keep and Bear" will protect THEM by doing so, just the same."
I must be having a brain freeze, I cannot for the life of me place who he is and what movies he was in. He sounds like a twit, but that is nothing new. The old time STARS were patriotic and not full of hate for the USA.
Posters 30 / 36 are correct, stay out of movie houses. I have advocated this for more than the 35 years since I moved to FL. I use that as a point of reference because I can count on 6 fingers how many times I have paid to watch any of those idiots from Hollywood. A couple of those times was to bring my grandsons to see pictures like spiderman, once it was a black and white movie probably made in Europe. I also watched the Patriot, and probably one more. Streisand, Mr. Streisand, Ferrell , Carrey and the rest don´t see a dime of my money and they also shouldn´t see any of yours. STOP GOING TO SEE FILMS.
Don´t you just love how these people look down on the rest of us. They don´t know us or our education and background. I would say they would be very surprised. As for me, I stopped going to most movies years ago, with very few exception in the last few years. They are:

Actors live in a make-believe world that requires little critical thinking. If the happen to get rich and famous they begin to believe they are wise and should offer others advice without realizing they are fools.
Just before the Senate failed to advance a transportation and housing bill Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to give Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who was presiding over the chamber at the time, a little help. Ms. Baldwin, Wisconsin Democrat, attempted to get order of a bustling chamber so senators could speak. “The Senate is not in order,” she said. “The Senate will be in order.” “Madame President, Madame President,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, cut in. “Have senators sit down and shut up, OK? It’s unfair. Senator [Patty] Murray has something to say. Senator [Susan] Collins has something —
A chocolatier who has been forced to shut up shop has left a frank goodbye note in his store´s front window detailing how the costs of running the business ate up all of his takings.(Snip) Mr Dunn, 52, listed the outgoings for his ´busy and popular´ shop, which showed that his £208,000-a-year taking were being swallowed up by £52,000 in yearly rent and business rates, £41,600 in VAT and taxes, £41,600 in supplies and £67,600 on wages. He said: ´Before long all that will be left on the British high street
A Syrian religious group have banned croissants because they symbolise western oppression. A Sharia committee issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring croissants ‘haram’, which means they are forbidden in Islamic law. The group, which operates in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, said that they have ‘colonial’ significance. They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya. Islamis sharia committees have declared several strict fatwas in rebel-controlled areas of Syria.
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned on Wednesday that if across-the-board budget cuts were not lifted, the United States would have to reduce its global security objectives by trading away the size of its armed forces or its edge in technology as the Pentagon seeks to remain solvent. In a dire assessment of the financial challenges facing the military, Mr. Hagel said the political stalemate between the White House and Congress over a comprehensive deal for taxes and spending has required the Defense Department to plan for a range of cuts, since a deal to lift
[Video] Ouch. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul to join him for a beer and bury the hatchet in their ongoing -- and very public -- feud. "I´m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don´t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said in an interview on a local radio station. The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."
“Well, I’m not going to catalogue...”-- White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refusing to define what he and President Obama meant when talking about “phony scandals.” Carney, though, intimated that the targeting of political groups by the IRS and the doctored White House talking points on the Islamist raid on a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya were “phony.” We now know that IRS honchos shared information about conservative groups with other agencies, using the vast data in the IRS databanks to help other federal officials make cases against conservatives. Now we need to know how much, how often and
A progressive group will coordinate with liberal activists to disrupt Republican town halls during the August recess, when lawmakers will face questions about Obamacare and comprehensive immigration reform. Americans United for Change, run by a former Democratic National Committee communications head, plans to send activists to Republican town halls in swing states and even red states to target lawmakers like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). "This is a new approach. The theory in the past has been to be stealth about the effort to confront members at town halls--but sometimes it´s been too stealth, and we haven’t generated enough activity,"
IRS chief Daniel Werfel says he wants to keep his health care plan, not switch to Obamacare: [Video] "Mr. Werfel, last week your employees who are a member of the National Treasury Employee´s Union sent a form letter for union members to send in to ask they be exempt from the exchanges," a congressman asked. "Why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the very law that you´re tasked to enforce?" "I don´t want to speak for the NTEU, but I´ll offer a perspective as a federal employee myself and a federal employee at the IRS,"
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) slammed Attorney General Eric Holder after an investigation by Goodlatte´s committee reported discrepancies between Holder´s congressional testimony and decision to approve a search warrant for emails from Fox News Correspondent James Rosen. "I find the lack of leadership at the Department of Justice extremely alarming," Goodlatte said in a statement on Wednesday. "The deceptive and misleading testimony of Attorney General Holder is unfortunately just the most recent example in a long list of scandals that have plagued the Department." The report released by the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday said Holder´s testimony included
WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has filed his final House financial disclosure report more than six months late, a filing that sheds little light on how he will pay a $750,000 forfeiture for looting his campaign treasury. Jackson, 48, is awaiting sentencing on Aug. 14. Federal prosecutors want him behind bars for four years. His wife, Sandi Jackson, 49, a former Chicago alderman, will be sentenced the same day for a federal tax violation. The government has urged that she spend 18 months in prison. In his plea deal, Jackson agreed to pay the $750,000 forfeiture and
A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.
MORVEN, Ga. — Small-town police departments across the country have been gobbling up tons of equipment discarded by a downsizing military — bicycles, bed sheets, bowling pins, French horns, dog collars, even a colonoscopy machine — regardless of whether the items are needed or will ever be used. In the tiny farming community of Morven, Ga., the police chief has grabbed three boats, scuba gear, rescue rafts and a couple of dozen life preservers. The town´s deepest body of water: an ankle-deep creek. An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department program, originally aimed at helping local law enforcement
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have

According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
