    Indeed... strange how that song is so appropriate to today's situation.

    Given how strongly Libertarian many of the themes in that show are, I don't find it strange at all that it fits so perfect.

    If you were LaPierre, you’d be ‘a tired old white guy,’ too

    Twenty-four hours after POLITICO reporter Lois Romano sneered on MSNBC that National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre looked like “a tired…old white guy that’s clinging on to something of the past,” her remarks are getting reaction from a couple of media critic websites and the Tea Party.

    Love Firefly. And I would say it was definite foreshadowing. One of the great things about SciFi if you ask me. They take you out of your box and sphere of comfort, and it can open your eyes to how wrong and foolish certain ideas are that you would otherwise be blind to based on previously held prejudices.

    In this case, certain circles see LaPierre as an "old whit guy" and anything he says is tainted to them in that framework. But make him an alien, or make "the government" some interplanetary space aliance, and their overbearing, socialistic ways seem downright foolish and silly, even though they are using the same concepts on our planet today.

    ..... Must write an article to save honor!

    Must make mention of *liberties he stands for!!






















    *Liberties does not include freedom of speech. Refer to NRA representatives for further details.

    I'm clinging to something from the past as well; the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I guess I'm just a bitter old white guy too.

    So Bloomberg is the old, white guy looking to the future? That thought is truly horrible. I have no desire to live in Bloomberg's vision of America.

    The firefly reference is very appropriate.

    According to popular standards, it's not racist and is well accepted to denigrate Christians, whites, conservatives, patriots and people with morals and integrity.

    Up is down, down is up.

    La Pierre and the rest of the NRA lose credibility every time they blame video games for gun violence. Makes me cringe anytime he brings it up... such an anti-1st amendment attitude.

    I play sims, myself.. I'm an old white guy, too. But young minds do not need violent video games and films. Sure it's a parental decision, but minors do not have "1st amendment rights".

    Nope, it has everything to do with the lack of a firm hand against a child's backside. Oh wait, that's abuse now, never mind, just let them do whatever they want.

    I believe there is a connection. Not from the fact that the games are violent but more from the fact that parents use them as a full time babysitter rather then taking time with their kids and doing things with them. Rather then taking little Timmy outside and playing ball with them, mom and dad are flopping on the couch themselves after a long day and letting the kids sit in their rooms surf the net and play the games.

    But that in itself stems from the high price of housing, cars and basic essentials. Mom and dad both have to work to just make ends meet. And I think at the end of the day, they are simply too worn out to take an active role in anything. It's been an ongoing issue that I think has been slowly building over the last couple of generations.

    My mom and dad both worked. My brother and I turned out okay, but we were disciplined and made accountable. My sister on the other hand was spoiled and not guided properly and has been written off by the family now.

    It's all about discipline.
