So you support a gun-ban, or stricter gun laws, because one nutball went on a shooting spree, but you don't support stricter rules for x-games because one person got killed?
Liberals aren't hypocritical at all.
Not that I am supporting a gun ban, but you are comparing apples to watermelons. On the left, we have innocents killed by the hand of another. On the right we have a guy who died by voluntarily participating in an extremely risky and dangerous activity.

You're right, it's just one nutball that is the cause of the gun discussion.

X-Gamer hurt himself and no one else. People with guns hurt others. I know that's a subtle nuance so I understand how you missed it.

See, Mutt? Tonka gets it. But then again, Tonka isn't preoccupied with labeling people as "liberal" as an insult.

Banning something because it's potentially dangerous. Whether it's dangerous for you or dangerous for me should be irrelevant.

felony committed while you were a minor? Or maybe felony that does not involve bodily harm to another? I dunno.

Lindsay Lohan is an absolute wreck. 20+ court visits, 67 days of community service, 250 days in rehab, ongoing issues, she switched to an attorney who was barred from practicing for 5 years. And she looks awful. She has officially sunk below the Kardashians in my book.

Says the person who advocates an individual's right to choose whether or not they smoke or wear a seatbelt because they (according to you) aren't affecting anyone else.

That hypocrisy aside, that is one of the dumber things you have said. And I feel confident that your stated opinion is in the minority.

You must not know what hypocrisy means. Your response to me was "Whether it's dangerous for you or dangerous for me should be irrelevant." Then you turn around on the smoking and seat belt issues and use the argument that those two activities affect only the person and not others as a justification for the government not coming in and telling you what to do.

I was pointing out YOUR hypocrisy. You support smoking bans and seat belt laws but don't think there should be bans or restrictions on x-games.

I see it the exact opposite. I think the fact that she felt the need to try to make that chick feel stupid says she got rattled. She's on Bourbon Street on Superbowl week and got pissed off that a drunk fan got into her shot? Really? You don't want drunks in your shot, stay off Bourbon Street. As far as what she said, I thought it was funny.

You said "Banning something because it's potentially dangerous. Whether it's dangerous for you or dangerous for me should be irrelevant." That really sounds like you are stating your position. Would you like to clarify? Do you agree that there is a difference between activities that pose a risk to oneself and activities that pose a risk to others?

Once again you and I are on oppopsite sides of the fence. Can we at least agree that water is wet? It would be a start.

My "position" was sarcasm. I'll try to go slower.

About the broadcaster in New Orleans, I'm with Tonka. I think she was very rattled, spoiled and very unprofessional.

I was disappointed, too, because it wasn't funny and I was looking for funny b/c Tonka said it was funny.
