    Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms"

    Yep, - she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. .


    And the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

    Kurt Nimmo: "Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill."

    Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times: April 9, 2013

    "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California , but we
    Seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office.
    I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine , even comes
    Close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington , we're
    Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw
    The likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy
    Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'.

    The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You
    Don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel
    At their ability to form words."

    If Snopes is correct, then I stand corrected - on the quote. But I still love the newspaper article.

    Wouldn't put it past her either way. She wants everyone disarmed, and she will do it class by class bit by bit if she has to.

    Its not true.... she did not say that.

    However, that's what she meant. :scrutiny:


    It appears the LA Times article was never published.... but its an accurate assessment. ;)

    danez71: I agree. She probably thinks the majority of Americans are mentally ill simply because they don't agree with her.

    What's the old line? "We simply want to keep guns out of the hands of the insane". "So how do you define insane?" "Anyone who wants a gun is insane".

    So, she did not say it. But she might as well have said it. Which is as good as done anyway.

    If we don't stay sober, if we invent or propagate wackadoodle quotes, we'll be outvoted every dog gone time. How many times have they accused Rush of saying what he has never said?

    We need to stick with solid, verifiable facts. Urban myths no matter how satisfying, and especially when already debunked, do not help promote the RKBA. Perpetuating these sorts of attractive untruths damages our credibility.

    Snopes itself has been proven to be bogus. Wish I could find the link...

    In this day and age of electronic media, if no one can turn up the transcript or a recording, I think we can assume it's bogus.

    Speedo66 is correct in what he just said, but we must, also, remember that Snopes is a left wing group and just might support the four horsewomen of the apocalypse in the USSR of C.

    For me, the bottom line on many of the folks we disagree with is that they're "true believers" (read Eric Hoffer's book, same title) and see their efforts as a great endeavor...

    Never mind that they're dead wrong and making our world into a cesspool - you won't persuade them away from their almost religious views... What we can do is oppose them at every point, keep bringing the facts to bear, and remember that they're powerless if they can't get folks to vote their way. You can't fail to note that the rise of the left in our country almost directly matches the decline of religious institutions. As that has occurred the general public is shocked by the things a few of our young people get up to. The latest outrages in innocents murdered by young thugs are only a sample of things to come if we don't restore our country's sense of right and wrong....

    No. Snopes has proven itself to me many times. IMO, there is no such thing as unbiased, but they are objective and accurate. If you doubt them they always provide the info how they arrived at their conclusions so you can look it up and make your own decisions.

    "Unbiased" doesn't exist in media. All have agendas and bills to pay, thus biases to be fed.

    Unbiased doesn't exist anywhere. Everyone has a bias. It's impossible to be totally unbiased. Some are more objective than others, but everyone has a different point of view.

    Anyone who believes Snopes without question is a bigger fool than me.

    It looks like all actual information (in contrast to opinions and rants) is on the table. If anyone has some additional actual, verifiable information, he or she can send me a PM; and I'll consider re-opening this thread.
