Well, at least we are reading from the same report. I think you may be splitting hairs though. Here is the point I was making. You right wingers always claim to be against too much "government power".

The whole "second amendment" business is all about freedom from government oppression, I thought. In other words, you guys claim to be ready to shoot it out with the "government" if they try to assert too much authority over you, right?

But here, with the Gates situation, you apparently feel that it's ok for the government to arrest a citizen, just for "talking back". So which is it? Even going along with your point, that Gates was yelling and shouting insults at the officer, I have to say "So what?" After all, Gates was in his own home. I thought you second amendement types were all about "a man's home is his castle" type thinking.

So you see my confusion. On the one hand, you puff up your chests and make threatening noises about how the government better not tread on your rights. But then, in Gates case, you make the opposite argument, i.e. even if you are in your own home, don't talk back to the government. Again, which is it?

LOL...I'm "splitting hairs" pointing out you were wrong...?

"But here, with the Gates situation, you apparently feel that it's ok for the government to arrest a citizen, just for "talking back".

Didn't happen that way...did it..? Gates was yelling well before he was identified as the home owner...and he continued to yell when outside the home. He wasn't just "talking back" as you continue to imply.

"After all, Gates was in his own home. I thought you second amendement types were all about "a man's home is his castle" type thinking."

Was he in his home when he was warned to calm down, twice...? No, he was outside the home in public. Was he in his home when he was arrested for "Disorderly Conduct"...? No, he was outside the home in public.

"So you see my confusion."

I see your confusion in not being able to comprehend the words the way they are written. Why is it you "frustrated control freaks" can't read and comprehend...?

"But then, in Gates case, you make the opposite argument, i.e. even if you are in your own home, don't talk back to the government."

His home was his castle and he could yell and scream all day long. Once he went outside in the public he broke the law by being disorderly and was arrested.

"Again, which is it?"

Unless you are under arrest, don't go outside your home even if the nice policeman asks you to step outside.

Well, I was bright enough to know that Obama was going to wipe the floor with you right wing idiots in the last election, while you were sending money to Karl Rove and Dick Morris.

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to remind you of what a sucker you are. How long do you intend to let those charlatans play you for a chump, but he way?

Well, you and I will just have to agree to disagree I guess. I take the side of the homeowner, and you side with the government agent who arrests the homeowner. To each his own.

But please, no more posing as some sort of anti-government patriot, standing up for "freedom" against "oppressive government". You and I both know better.

Ok, that was a pretty coherent post, at least by your standards. The only thing wrong with it is you didn't type "LOL" enough times. If you had typed "LOL" a couple of more times, you may have convinced me of the righteousness of your position.

Exactly. And the online suppliers are out of stock. The prices last posted before running out of stock were in line with gun show prices.

That was not a copy of Crowley's hand written report. That was a typed copy that had already been reviewed by high ranking police officials.
Do you actually think reports aren't manipulated by higher ups in the department that answer to politicians?

I believe YOU brought up Gates as an argument for racism.
Changing your tune, eh?

BTW, anybody besides me notice 90%+ of the Inaugeration entertainment was by folks of color? I certainly don't want to draw the conclusion that the president plays favorites based upon one's heritage. That action is unpresidential. One should be an uniter and not a divider.

I don't think I brought up Gates at all. I think I was responding to somebody else who brought up Gates. My main focus on Gates wasn't even the race issue. It was the issue of "citizen vs Government" and I was trying to point out the right wing hypocrisy on THAT subject.

You are all over the place, posting asinine comments that may or may not have anything to do with the thread. Just like in your real life when you start babbling and people move away it is no different on here, numbnuts. With all your raging leftist hypocrisy go do something of value to others today instead of wasting time on topix farting in the wind.

People are buying guns and stock piling ammo because they fear their government and don't trust or beleive Obama. Rememeber what happened the last time a democrat was in the white house,Bill Clinton killed 77 people including 21 children at Waco Texas as part of a gun grab by a democratic president. Obama tries to take away our guns and there will be a fight,maybe another civil war.

I agree with you that what either of us says here on Topix is irrelevant. And I agree that on here, nobody has much influence on anything. But then, you bring up "real life". Ok, let's compare my "real life" with yours.

In my real life, my candidate won the election, and is popular with the people.

In your real life, your candidate suffered a humiliating loss, and your teabag Republican philosophy has been utterly rejected by the people.

Does that put it in perspective for you at all?
