Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her gun bill. Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from owning firearms".
Not another Hanoi Jane Fonda?
Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:
"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."
-- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times
You could really make a great picture of all of these dingbat leftist women. Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray of Washington, Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, and a lot more. Beyond belief how rude these women can become. But it is the MO on the femanist movement women. If they don't get their way, or someone isn't a liberal like they are they will insult, attack, anything goes, and against other women as well.
I had read that somewhere before and was trying to ignore it so as not to get my blood pressure higher than it already it. She sure does like the freedoms that the veterans afforded her even the one to speak her limited mind and insult veterans. Mark my word she will try anything , legal or not to try to get people's guns.
Well geez, you guys just can't seem to get any accuracy out of month old news. Keep in mind she was commenting on a proposed amendment.
At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting, Feinstein opposed an amendment to her Assault Weapons Ban legislation that would allow military veterans to continue to buy the firearms that would be banned.
Quote: "If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this." End quote.
Now I know the world renowned websites like "Mr.Conservative", "PolitiChicks", and "PrisonPlanet" have difficulty accurately reporting...but it wouldn't take much effort for scholars such as yourselves to actually look up the quote.
So in summation, Fienstien, while a misguided do gooder, certainly DID NOT insult all U.S. veterans as a whole.
I find the mere mention of Ms. Feinstein's name revolting, Homaski!
Don't even presume to tell me anything she says isn't revolting as well.
Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi are all offensive.
Find them offensive is guys like but don't spread lies about them, which is what you are doing when you put quotes around words that are not that persons words.
Iojolsen..So this is what you support?...gun control? And why you found your way onto a fishing, and hunting site? Me thinks there is a foul smell amongst us.
sez the guy who earlier admitted that folks with guns makes him nervous.
No, Only democrats with guns. They've committed virtually all the mass murders. Hopefully I smell them before they pull a gun on me. And you can smell one a hundred yards away.
Didn't say what I support in this post, just what I didn't, which is using false quotes to sway opinion. Bullshlt smells and this thread is malodorous.
In my second comment above, I quoted the LA Times Columnist Burt Prelutsky who called the four California ladies in Congress, left wing dingbats and jackasses. You well never guess what political party the ladies are from?
I give you two clues, Hoski and Jolsen are defending them and the majority of that political party is anti gun. Isn’t totally mind boggling!
correction, Isn't "that" totally mind boggling!
You see?...this is where you get confused. I didn't say I supported the misguided do gooder, I merely pointed out that most of you GOP types use mis-quotes and then post them as fact. Add a word here, omit a word there, and viola,...kinda makes you look foolish to the fact based community.
So I suppose you liberals are completely above that?
Hoski gets his facts from Moveon.Org Now there is a hot bed of
I do not think Hoski knows what a 'fact' is.
While everything that comes out of the mouth of Feinstein's is revolting to me personally, I think the problem here is the media. Neither the liberal or the conservative media reports accurately. The American people shouldn't have to research multiple sources for every news story to get the facts. The funny thing is that the average citizen doesn't seem to care that they are manipulated. The chicken littles cry Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her gun bill when what she said is that veterans should loose their guns like everyone else- no exemptions. It's still revolting. But, if you don't do your research and check the facts, you end up looking like an idiot and the anti's laugh all the way toward more gun control.
As far as Feinstein, maybe she should put some effort into finding additional ways to treat veterans with PTSD and worry less about gun bans.
Hoski, I went on the internet and the majority of the posted links all had the same story that "Veterans were insulted by Senator Feinstein". Most of them were word for word. Are you saying that they are all incorrect and it is bogus story?
Hoski, Let me make this question very simple and easy for you.
Did Senator Feinstein insult Veterans in this country with her gun and PTSD comments?
Answer Yes or No.
Yes, I know you went on the internet and most of the websites all said the same thing. Every single one was also a heavily biased conservative website...what a coincidence.
I posted the word for word quote...the real important part you (and the rest) need to pay special attention to are the words..."would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran..."
Now did you see it? "AN INDIVIDUAL".
Now if you're still having trouble distinguishing between an individual and a group, then you're beyond my help.
And just for clarification, the proposed amendment Fienstien was commenting on proposed to allow veterans to be exempt from her proposed ban. In this country we do not extend rights to one group and withhold them from the rest of the population.
BTW, above you clearly stated I was for the AWB...I defy you to find any post by me where I say I support it.
Hoski, what does AWB mean?
I know BTW means "By The Way."
By The Way, Hoski you never answered my question. I will repeat it for you;
Did Senator Feinstein insult Veterans in this country with her gun and PTSD comments?
Yes or No?
Hoski commenting in the AWB "...I support it." You just said it, look above. Gotcha!
If I was tested under her criteria I possibly wouldn't qualify to have a firearm. It has been over 40 years and at times according to her remarks I may have had minor problems, so yes her remarks offended me. I have never been treated for anything so I don't have to lie on the firearms form but since she wants to test combat veterans I may be in trouble. Her word is if you read her quote you so graciously provided she said that you wouldn't know if a person who was in a war and you couldn't verify if the veteran had no impairment with respect to having a weapon like this..
Jolsen what is it?
Sarge do you know what the letters stand for?
Assault weapons ban
Evidently you need it spelled out for you.
Senator Fienstien said the word "individual" when speaking about excluding veterans from the proposed AWB...so no she did not insult veterans as a whole, she was speaking about individuals who may be suffering from PTSD.
You'll have to decipher the letters yourself.
Janet Napolitaino of Homeland Security has identified returning veterans (as well as other groups) as being a domestic terrorist risk.
Hoski I never said you supported the gun ban.
Please read it again, it means you’re always supporting members of the stinky democrap party. Most of those members are in favor of any gun ban.
Not long ago hoski was calling any kind of gun ban by democrats a hoax, a falsehood being spread by Republicans. "Democrats don't want to remove your guns! Obama? He doesn't want to remove your guns." Even the Rat now knows that was a lie.
I just don't get you Gary, I merely point out that you guys on the right have a penchant for exaggeration, misquotes, and simply making stuff up, and you somehow make the leap that I'm supportive of Diane Do Gooder Fienstien.
It's no wonder we find it impossible to have intelligent discussions...you folks simply don't understand the English language.
Hoski, most of the threads on Backlash/Blowback your always supporting and defending President Obama and the stinking democraps. I never saw a thread where you support a Republican, a Libertarian, a Green Party member or any other political party member. You’re stating it is because we all make stuff up, exaggerate and misquote. I don't buy it, Hoski.
You don't buy it huh?
Well, this thread is a perfect example. A bunch of right wing basement bloggers stir up a non issue by inventing language Senator fienstien simply did not use and we're arguing about it. I posted the word for word quote, I pointed out the fact that she used the word INDIVIDUAL and you're still wasting time arguing about it...as if we don't have real issues to debate, no, you guys gotta invent stuff.
As for my non support of Republicans, that's mostly because of their childish stances. I've repeatedly pointed out their blatant obstructionism. Taxes, immigration reform, foreign policy, health care, take your pick...I'm more than happy to expose their hypocrisy.
Dianne Feinstein supports gun control..We know she wants that. We also know Obama has no chance of getting it passed in congress. We know that. We know the majority of Americans do not want gun control. They believe that if that is passed, free speech is next.
And the hoski's said not long ago, it was a lie that Obama wanted to take away your guns. Now we look to see how he plans to get around congress, and achieve gun control.
