I skimmed back over the last

I skimmed back over the last ten pages and they all seem pretty pro-gun to me and the few negative comments I saw about Alex were down voted severly. What I found the coolest was that the following comment had the most up votes....

"Why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians who run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people? Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it’s wrong." Ron Paul

When I was one of the

When I was one of the sheeple, Alex Jones woke me up w/ his rants. I wanted to go back to sleep, and write him off as a tin foil hatter, but I couldn't. So I searched his facts & they were true. Maybe other sheep will do the same. He reminds me of the snooze button on my alarm in this interview. Obnoxious yet reassuring to someone who is awake, ignored at times but necessary to someone who is asleep.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. - Matthew 10:16

Funny...

...because one of the comments there said to google knife control U.K. and I did! Wow, yep...they are trying to do that there!

A while back

I recall another public figure jumped on a sofa on Oprah's show. I don't think anyone could deny the amount of publicity that followed. Seems that perhaps Alex Jones knew exactly what he was doing. Now let's see if the MSM buys in and will begin the "circus" of interest. wink wink

Anyone know how to use Google Trends?

I really don't like Alex Jones

but his performance Piers Morgan show was remarkable. I hated it at first but that was from my perspective. I tried to put myself in the hillbilly or jock football player from high school. Then it all started to hit me. There is nothing i would have loved more than to see Piers getting mocked with his gay British accent. Again this is the mindset of a lot of people and not my views. I could see people laughing at Piers because of Alex's mocking and think "Haha, this guy is awesome!"

Maybe it will turn off others but those weren't people interested in the first place. He wasn't going after new people like you and me but reaching out to get more listeners. In the end if it wakes more people up to the government becoming socialized then that is a good thing.

It says now that no comments

It says now that no comments have been posted.

Still there.

Still there.

Ha ha ha! That's great!

If he was really a "nutjob" as a few claim, then why didn't they put him on the 3rd segment as they said they would? Don't you think they would have wanted him to "discredit" himself even more? In fact, I think they are very sorry they had him on! He was too much for them too handle...hah! Not too mention it should have been the big news on every station the next day...and it wasn't. Look out MSM! You have helped make Alex a household name! Hey, someone should make up t-shirts with a picture of Alex and Piers debating...what would be a good caption for the shirt?

Some t-shirt captions...

"We're mad as hell, and we're not gonna take it anymore!"

"Armor Piers-ing Facts"

"Piers Off! And don't let the door hit ya!"

"Top Gun Rights Advocate"

One third into it

I was annoyed. Two thirds into it AJ won me over.

He kept hammering Piers and I think it worked. Can't freekin believe it.

Agreed. At first I was like

Agreed. At first I was like Alex is making us look bad, but after the thing was over, it was satisfying to see Piers completely shut up.

Alex isn't a political gun leader like Larry Pratt or Wayne LaPierre who's expected to remain calm under fire. People expect that type of passion and "shocking" behavior from Alex Jones. So I don't think it makes us look bad. And it was satisfying, because how many of us have been wanting to just have our way with Piers Morgan just like Alex did? The Pratt's and Pierre's can be the calm, cool, and collected part of the debate...but I like Alex's approach of being the fire-breather of argument, showing how much passion there truly is.

Alex Jones had balls to say

Alex Jones had balls to say what he said. It's how we all feel, so why should we criticize about the delivery?

well he's not going to help me

with my family and 9-11, but i laugh out loud when he calls him redcoat.

My Comments:

If you haven't read the founding documents in this country and only get your information from "main" (heavily corporate controlled) stream sources then how can you intelligently even enter the debate about the 2nd amendment? I've run the gambit on the gun issue. I used to be strong ANTI-GUN until later on when I actually read the Bill of Rights for the first time. Then I realized how irresponsible I was for not owning one in order to protect my friends, family and my neighbors. While the cops are always less than 5 minutes away... violence happens on a moment's notice.

Questions: Are NON-constitutionalists your peers? If so how can you be judged by them (jury of peers) with respect to your right to bear arms? If theses non-peers DO NOT have any rights to effect your rights - how can they delegate power they don't have to "government?" Where does "government" get this perceived power? Answer to that one is obvious: From the gun because its certainly not from The Law.

"Government" can have NO effect ON people PERIOD. If you wish to have some effect on your neighbor the only recourse for you is to handle it privately or bring it up with that individual's peers through a lawful court proceeding.

"This word `person' and its scope and bearing in the law, involving, as it does, legal fictions and also apparently natural beings, it is difficult to understand; but it is absolutely necessary to grasp, at whatever cost, a true and proper understanding to the word in all the phases of its proper use . . . A person is here not a physical or individual person, but the status or condition with which he is invested . . . not an individual or physical person, but the status, condition or character borne by physical persons . . . The law of persons is the law of status or condition." -- American Law and Procedure, Vol 13, page 137, 1910.

NOWHERE - In the constitution does it say that "government" can have ANY effect whatsoever on PEOPLE.

The 2nd amendment protects the people's right to bear arms... the PERSON has NO RIGHT to BEAR ARMS. The irony of this fact is that the public servant, while on-duty as a "person" can in fact have his privilege to carry a gun can be taken away by his employers (the people - the owners - the shareholders).

http://www.dailypaul.com/268762/us-citizens-have-no-constitu...

The right is also protected by the 9th amendment even if the 2nd amendment was abrogated.

If the people could by and large wrap their heads around this... I would be ALL IN FAVOR of amending the constitution to abrogate the second amendment and make bearing arms by "persons" unlawful. Of course without a vast leap forward consciousness that would be mass suicide.

People serving as persons in "government" should have their guns taken away - they are SERVANTS to the people they must ask permission for just about everything! We the people are the owners! They are the employees! Since when can an employee tell an owner what to do? When the employee is pointing a GUN AT THE OWNER that's when!

Comment:

Posted over there;

This is about the worst treatment of someone that I have ever witnessed on television. Piers Morgan should apologize to Alex Jones immediately for his terrible behavior, and he should ask Alex for his forgiveness. The 2nd Amendment guarantees the right of the People to defend themselves against all enemies foreign and domestic including tyrannical governments.

Or Ill informed

british T.V. hosts whose people were the tyrannical mob we fought the war of Independenc against.

Never trust the British ......they are an unsavory lot at best!!! lol

Ron Paul brings people together.

Alex Jones drives people apart.

I think his heart is in the right place but his head it not. He is ranting and raving here and that turns people off.

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

This is so not true. I used

This is so not true. I used to be a liberal, back when I was 21 years old. I voted for Al Gore, I was a self avowed, "socialist," and thought it was the end of the world in 2000 when GWB won...

But then came 911, and Alex Jones....I tuned in originally as a complete skeptic and enemy of what he was saying. I hated Alex Jones, because everything I was conditioned to learn in my public school didn't fit with what he said. I challenged him...and I lost! I was wrong!

Alex Jones woke me up...he didn't drive me away, and every single one of my friends that I have shown Alex Jones' videos helped bring my friendship with them closer, not apart.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I agree with a lot of what

I agree with a lot of what Alex said but to 60% of the people in this country he will come off as a deranged goof ball. One thing that hurt his credibility was his refusal to answer Mr Morgan's questions. That is a technique right out of the Liberal Playbook.

Debbie's picture

Right, and it works both ways. The "questions" are not real

questions, but are a scripted agenda, and Piers' "calm demeanor" is part of that whole package. Nobody is more aware of that than Alex - he did great.

Debbie

We'll never know exactly what the percentage is

But over at the Yahoo article it's like 98.6% pro Alex in the comments.

60%

of the people in this country ARE deranged goof balls so i'm not sure what your point in posting this is. I know this for a fact, you folks that go around worrying to death what others think are NOT getting the job done or we wouldn't be having this debate right now....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."

Those goofballs are future libertarians.

They need reasoned arguments not ranting and raving.
