When you listen to what he says, you have to agree, but the problem is the LIBERALS both Demorat and Repubicans Are the ones in Comigress Who are Passing These Laws!
This is such a great thread, and yet it is already dying. That is the problem with Scoop. It has been my argument with Scoop, since the day I first stumbled in here.
Because of the way Scoop is structured, it fails the test of measuring what we all think, on an ongoing basis.
Scoop, for all the great things it does right, does a few things that are not right.
Let me try to explain. We routinely criticize the media for using "sound bites." Little clips of information, that have no real basis in fact, but instead, are just meant to distract.
Scoop does the same thing, albeit in a different way. I call it, "comment overload."
No sooner do we all get comfortable with the conversation we are in, than there is a new conversation, and everyone jumps ship, and joins the new conversation, without having finished the conversation that was generated by the previous post.
No doubt, this technique produces great ratings, but is great ratings, really our main goal?
I have always asked for a continuing thread, that is not changed by Scoop, but by the people who regularly contribute to Scoop and make it what it is.
Just once, I would like to come home from work, and find the conversation I enjoyed yesterday, and rejoin that same conversation. But apparently, that's not possible, because its gone. Because there is no continuing thread of all of our conversations. Every day, someone rings a bell, and we all have to jump to the latest, most important conversation.
I guess most of you like it, otherwise it would not be so. Personally, I am sick of it.
It is too bad that the people of Maryland did not vote for him in the last election for Senator. This man is a shining example of what is good about America, and the love and fealty he has for her. I just hope and pray that he runs for a congressional seat in the next election cycle. Go Dan the man Bongino...for your truly a rising star in the republican party!
News: 21 year old man defends family with gun: http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2013/02/24/21-year-old-man-uses-legally-owned-firearm-to-defend-family-from-three-criminals/
Best thing I've seen yet on the, "Myth of Gun Control," as Dan puts it.
"We live in a society of wolves. You do not fight back by creating more sheep!"
"They manipulate an emotional crisis to further an ideological agenda which involves the evaporation, the slow disintegration of your civil rights, your civil liberties, your ability to live and let live. Its a disturbing pattern………."
There is no such thing as, "gun control." Only "people control."
"In my seventeen years in law enforcement, I never, ever, arrested anyone or knew anyone who did, on a gun crime, who had the gun legally."
I absolutely love this guy! If I were to put together a short list of people I would like to have leading this country, Dan Bongino would probably be #3, right behind Allen West and Sarah Palin. Maybe Defense Secretary, or head of Homeland Security.
Obama wants to disarm Veterans, because Veterans (caps intended) know how to use weapons.
Obama is afraid of Veterans and afraid of how they might react, when he gets a little further along with his plan to turn America into a Police State, on the model of the Soviet Union.
He wants to get rid of the, "Warrior Mentality," that he thinks the Military represents. He wants to turn battle-hardened Veterans into museum guards armed only with a walkie-talkie. Obama is not the only one. This "weakening" of the image of our Military has been going on for a very long time now. We need to stop it now, while we still have a Military.
Do me a favor Scoop. Follow Dan Bongino and post more of his comments. When I listen to him speak, things don't seem so hopeless.
Well, at least the cow is already out of the barn on this 'disarm the Veterans' plan of theirs. We have had a dozen years of stupid useless wars producing combat Vets. I know for a fact many of them are shooters in civilian life, with reloaders and stockpiles of weapons and ammunition. Even a few rpgs and such, probably. The liberal pols are truly playing with fire right now.
One of the things that has me knotted up is the continuing waste of our best in Afghanistan. It's the worst shiitehole in the world to get involved in some sort of conflict...see results for the British Empire, Russia, etc. And now us. I think obama and it's merry crew are staying there to kill as many of our guys as possible.
I think this was posted a bit back but thought it might give you a smile to rewatch! Guns Across America Rally http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8WLXhahw_A
Thank you for that, OneThinDime. What can you say about Dan. When you listen to him speak, you just want to embrace him, put your arms around him, and hold him close. Because he represents everything we believe in.
He just speaks about Freedom, with an energy that most of us don't possess. He is a gift. We have to find a way to use the gift.
Wow, love this guy! Great points he hammered home. The left manipulating the language, the elite being armed or protected by those who are, while making the peasants defenseless, and he even throws in a quote from Thomas sowell! My kinda guy!
"Post Constitutional Society".
That man has it absolutely correct.
I'll never forget a family member, under her breath as I passed by, saying under President Bush we were losing our rights. She was right, she just got the president wrong and was looking into the future.
I'm glad to see this guy in the spotlight. He knows how to hammer with the right language and get the point across.

Isn't Oregon also the state that has state assisted suicide. Like all liberal BS it's named the Death with Dignity Act. Looks like the people there have a real death wish. Let the state disarm you or poison you take your pick. Obamacare would have had this but it was to controversial, they opted for death panels instead.
Oregon Offers Terminal Patients Doctor-Assisted Suicide Instead of Medical Care
There's more cases.
I'm not just Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, I'm bonkers for Bongino.
Here's another story of a quick-thinking young man saving his family from three armed intruders. Here's a tiny hint. He used a gun:
Good story. It needs to happen more often.
Here's one of my favorites. This happened last summer in a Florida coffee shop.
The gun confiscation program is proceeding along. The NRA seems to have obtained some info, which indicates that the regime of the obamessiah's goal is to confiscate all guns from law abiding citizens. The regime even seems to acknowledge that registration without confiscation just doesn't work for them.
While they've got the libfag, lamestream media running cover for them with their pseudo denials, they don't claim its a bad idea. All they admit is that its not ready for prime time just yet. Soooooooo...They'll just keep pumping & pumping & pumping it until everyone finally surrenders.
Right now, the approach seems to be doing this through the back door of the states. After they get enough states to pass the appropriate legislation, they'll be able to do it at the federal level.
This is how socialism works. At first, thereis major opposition to their agenda, but they just keep pushing it, aided by the media and using any violent incidents that occur, to weaken the resistance. Gradually, the public attitude changes, and they get what they want.
If we lose The Second Amendment, which is their goal, this country is finished. You can kiss every other freedom you thought you had, goodbye.
You still have to wonder what would have happened if that school in Connecticut HAD an armed guard when the attack took place. Some people certainly would have died, but probably not as many of them. You can never fully stop an attack from a crazed gunman, but you can certainly reduce the number of fatalities. As usual, liberals can never see that.
And they used to have armed security. Why no outrage at the people that voted to discontinue the school security?
Not instead of guns but in addition to them should have been doors that could have been locked by teachers in each class room. The article I read about this made it seem pretty expensive for what they were talking about but even a regular lock and then a wide board supported on each side by metal Hooks (can't think of the word) could have saved all the children in the class room and teachers trying to protect them with their own bodies. They also suggested in the article that there be a warning system installed in each class room so the teacher could be forewarned by anyone in the office or hall pushing a button to lock and secure the door.
You don't even need that much. We have a 2x6 with a notch which is jambed under the door knob so the door cannot be pushed open from the outside.
I agree there are some really inexpensive ideas that could be used until something better is approved. Unless there's some kind of rubber on the bottom of it I don't think it would hold on the slick tile or wood floors in most schools, but there's no reason that couldn't be applied. I still think you need to be able to lock it to.
A simple panic button in the classrooms and front office, that would turn on the fire alarms, automatically lock classroom doors and direct dial the police, would enable teachers and school administrators to take an active role in preventing such incidents.
The expense would be money well spent.
You're right, Ray. He's got, "the look." More than that though, he speaks with an intensity that leaves little doubt about what he believes in. This is not your usual namby-pamby politician.
Gun control disarms citizens gradually, then the government can become a dictatorship.
There should be no gun control in this country. Gun control is an infringement on our 2nd Amendment right.
You have nothing to fear about an honest citizen with a firearm, but you do have to be fearful of government when honest citizens have no firearms.
Great segment! More and more people are coming to the forefront because of, and despite this admin. As BO continues his tyrannical over-reach, the opposition will continue and increase.
The NRA is one of the opposition that has really taken it the administration. Their ads are devastating to the left. Whoever is creating them needs to be hired by every conservative candidate running for office. It never ceases to amaze me how inadequate some of the ads are for Republican candidates. I swear most of them could have been done better by many of the people posting here. Also...you don't have to use scurrilous language to totally annihilate your oppositions position and Bongino illustrated this in his interview.
I know the leftists who are trying to take our gun rights away know people are the problem. However, what concerns me is the people who actually believe an inanimate object causes the deaths of innocent people and support those who are lying to them, either they are WILLINGLY ignorant, which means they really know what is going on, and somehow placate themselves by pretending the lefts arguments (lies) really hold water, OR, they are actually stupid. I am sorry for putting it that bluntly, but those are the only two conclusions I can draw.
Either shows a delusion that is over them, and that delusion is not from good forces.
