Even though I don't have much use for Morgan or for CNN, Alex Jones was rude, crude, and just plain nuts.

The good news is that when the ACA kicks in next year, he'll be able to afford the meds that will help him cope with reality.

I suppose Alex Jones simply isn't big enough to "go Galt," so instead he fantasizes about being 1776's Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry...though I'd bet in reality if he ever found himself in real peril, he'd be more like Barney Fife.

And I find it particularly ironic that Jones and others whining about the big mean federal gubmit owe their careers to...the big mean federal gubmit, which heavily regulates the airwaves over which they spew. Without this regulation, you could forget about hearing anything but static on the radio or any other over-the-air broadcast medium.

I wish Jones and all the other would be revolutionists would give it an honest try, and not just some weekend camping trip wearing camo and carting associated gear to Northern Idaho or Michigan's UP. Try actually living without Bass Pro Shop, Cabelas, or even Wal-Mart, i.e., no place to re-stock up on all your toys. Try living without electricity and/or indoor plumbing while you're at it.

Jones wouldn't last a week.

My first reaction was to ask if Jones was a parody. This almost sounds like something that could go on a comedy show like SNL.

Then the idea of deporting Morgan because he spoke for gun control (and add in that he is a member of the press). Isn't there also an amendment for something like freedom of speech and the press ? For that matter, I could make an argument that 1 comes before 2 as Amendment 1 was thought the most important. (Admittedly, I'm ignoring that Morgan has what sounds like an accent from one of the British Empire countries. But that doesn't seem to make anyone criticize Murdoch).

A fact checker would go nuts. Only USA and Switzerland have firearms ? etc.

Interesting how Jones has every conspiracy theory rolled up together. However I can't help but note that one prominent one is about the "New World Order" - but no one minded when Bush kept repeating that phrase.

One gaping hole is Jones's citing the number of murders. Morgan shouldn't have let him get away with the fact that murders would be only those found to be homicides. What about all the manslaughter and accidental firearms discharges ?

Jones has mastered the technique of having just enough fact and plausible inferences in his ravings so as to give an air of credibility.

For all of the gun industry's bravado and how "if I had a gun I would blow them away." I find it interesting that a media outlet in (from memory) New York is under fire as they published a list of folks with firearms permits.

Those identified are complaining that they are in fear as it allows thieves to target them to steal their firearms.

Well by your own words, the criminals should be afraid to rob your house as you will blow them away. Right ?

Didn't jones try to fist fight Geraldo Rivera once? If I remember correctly Rivera didn't do anything and Jones claimed Rivera beat him up and it was proof of how persecuted he is. Also I seem to remember jones pulling a knife on an unarmed person in a parking lot.

why can't we have rational?
