I think it makes them feel the same way a cop feels when he has to shoot down an (American) perp. I bet it sucks. I bet it didn't make them think that their government boss was corrupt.

Damn, The Office just had the funniest bit about one guy saying "do you have a gun", and the other one saying sure, and pulled out a receipt. He said the gun was too expensive to actually carry around. It was funny, but I suppose my summary isn't as funny as the clip I can't find.

Anyways, it's all just interesting to me. I'll buy any of you a beer if we ever meet, regardless of your beliefs, if you'll drink it with me.

Well, except for HAP of course, that goes without saying.

Bob Costas should have a cameo appearance, without a gun, in the AMC Channel's "The Walking Dead". Then he'd regret his comments.

So, you wish Costas ill because you don't like his opinion? I'm pretty sure he doesn't much care about anyone elses.

But then when someone DOES use weapons to fight your government, you call them terrorists. I'm thinking Timothy McVeigh, the Unabomber, &c. They are doing EXACTLY what you say, fighting back against a government they consider immoral, corrupt, and tyrannical.

Notwithstanding some isolated incidents in Idaho and Texas, you folks are a fair ways away from Libya, Egypt and Syria in terms of stability, are you not?

Nope. Each was simply a cold blooded killer. Fine line between fighting an oppressive government and crossing over to kill kids in a day care center. No support from ordinary folk when you do that.

It looks like Costas didn't get it all out on Sunday and has added to his rant yesterday.
