Remember the Twinkie defense?

If Hostess wasn't in business in 1978, George Moscone and Harvey Milk might still be alive today!

****How long before we have metrosexual football with limp wristed announcers critiquing the players uniforms.****

The sarcastic sarcasm is strong with this one. Maybe Bob Costas will chime in. He fits the profile.

“... even though the 6’2”, 228 lb. linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs could easily have murdered his girlfriend with a knife.”

He could have murdered her with his bare hands. The story has to do not with guns, but with that which dwells in the human heart. And no journalist dares to deal with that. On the other hand, it is doubtful there is a journalist competent to deal with that, much less interested enough to learn.

CNN is so freakin' far out of touch with what's happened that I doubt they know up from down.

I saw Rickey Watters talking about this on the Gerri Willis show on Fox Business channel earlier tonight and he said Jovan Belcher had most likely mixed alcohol with drugs prescribed by a team doctor as a result of a concussion he suffered.

Watters said he had been through a similar experience during his career and had been on oxycontin recovering from a concussion and had such mode swings that his wife took the kids and left several times during that period. He even admitted that there were times that she left that he didn't even know she was gone because he was so far removed from reality.

CNN has their head up their a$$ making claims like that... but what else would you expect from liberal loons.

In case no one has noticed, our culture is in the sewer - the GOP is extinct not only because of the party’s ineptness, but the culture is lost and the values the GOP has to offer is no longer wanted or believed in. They have Baraq O’Claus to take care of them, while they all go about having fun. IMHO sanity isn’t coming back without some catastrophic event that will jolt the culture back into reality. It is more than likely going to end very badly.

Probably queer and not much of an expert on “manliness” other than being on the receiving end of it.

Can we just confiscate every gun in the hand of civilians?Then there would be zero deaths by gun violence.

This is the proper plan. We would be able to return to the placid serenity that permeated the gunless Roman Empire...

"Rap" is the manifestation of the spiritual degeneration and abject repulsiveness of a culture of destruction, misogyny, and death. It is about as uplifting as leg irons and millstones. Some people use their freedoms to willingly enter into bondage.

Rap is the modern equivalent of the drumbeat in the galley scene in Ben Hur.

It’s not the guns. It’s the carbon and sulfur and potassium nitrate. We must ban all access to these insipid chemicals NOW. No more volcanoes spewing sulfur, no more semi-burnt cellulosic material and no saving urine. It’s for the children.

Of course government will still have guns. In the last 100 years or so more people have been killed by governments than by criminals unless you count the criminals in the employ of governments. I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t want me to have a gun.

Jovan Belcher was brutal thug from the time he was in grade school.

The gun had nothing to do with that.

Belcher alone is responsible for this. Yet the Left is twisting and spinning this as the fault of all men. The Left will demand that all men act like castrati.

Exactly. A friend’s mother(who’s a very strong prolife conservative Christian) recalled a conversation she had with a black co-worker complaining about how “racist” it was that so many black men get incarcerated for beating up their black wives and girlfriends while so many white men don’t get incarcerated for beating their white girlfriends and wives. My friend’s mother promptly corrected her and said “why can a black woman get justice and a white woman can’t?”

First it was the culture of guns. Appears the leftards are attempting to cover all bases. I despise liberals!

CNN should look at the violent movies churned out by their parent company. Would they dare cast the blame to a culture of violence in movies or music? I think not.

There is something to that. CNN is not far from the truth. I’ve observed this culture first hand and it’s dysfunctional to some degree in that way.

Bob Costas is a guy, a photogenic guy, who comments on things he himself has never done with any degree of competency, i.e., sports.

I strongly disagree. His bug eyes give me the creeps.

CNN will never have to worry about their “manliness”.

However, it’s their feminine side that makes me want to barf.

Obama voters should not be allowed to own guns. They could care less about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights so I don’t think that they’d have a problem with that. Besides, they all wet themselves when somebody shows them a picture of a gun.

Frankly, I would favor prohibiting Holder's people from owning firearms. As an outlet for acting out their gangsta culture, we need a new reality TV show that films rival gangs beating each other to death in a closed arena--kinda like the gladiator games in ancient Rome. It would be quite entertaining, the mayhem would be focused,and the gene pool would improve.

I will admit that you are likely to have a superior perception in regard to his physical appearance. That leaves us with a bug-eyed, know-nothing, celebrity windbag. Agreed?
