This isn't just about someone being bad with money. This is a government agency determining that someone is mentally ill to the point that they need someone else to look over their finances. These are generally people that also need help with getting basic daily things done like making sure they shower/clean/etc. There is a big difference between the two.

People don't need them for protection really they just want to own a gun because they like guns
Banning those things doesn't deter people from still obtaining them if they wanted. Also you can still carry out a nice massacre with a hand gun that's way more effective than spray and pray.

I might have missed parts of this conversation but when gun control generally pops up it isn't about taking away everyone's rights. I did see a few posters talking about banning all guns in general but that is never on the table when gun control is brought up. It's just a boogie man tactic used by the right to get them riled up about the government coming to take their guns.

This is not a cavalier issue. Even though a lot of dudes who own guns to make up for having a small dick try to make it one.

I take gun ownership as serious as it can be taken.
You are luck you can do that in Cali. In NY, if you shoot someone breaking into your house you can be charged and sued by the burglar for putting his life at risk.

Comedy Central did that a few years ago bro. You are late to the party.

yeah yeah yeah blah blah blah, that's fine and all for an individual like yourself but when you step into a job that is inherently traditional. You should follow it regardless of your own personal opinion about traditions. That's like him saying "Oh I don't like traditions so fuck doing an inauguration."

You really give a shit if Trump doesn't go to some dinner? I sure as fuck don't. And I think that's an awfully apples and oranges comparison between a media dinner and an inauguration speech.

Maybe I'm not understanding what all goes on at this dinner, but does him not showing up affect anything? If the answer is no, then I repeat, I do not care.

No the issue is the uncanny resemblance to authoritarian leaders past and present that attempt to deligitamize free and open media

It's leading to how Putin did the same thing but on a more extreme basis when he had the state take over a national tv network.

He went to war with the media in his first year as well for the entire year.

It's a Washington institution. Like I said earlier, it's been 35 years since a sitting president missed one and that's only because he'd gotten shot.

This is just Trump being Trump to keep up his rebel facade with his ever shrinking base. Approval ratings under 40% after only a month in office?

All fascists pretty much have to do this if they want any hope of maintaining order

Objective reality ultimately has a true liberal bias

It further emblazens his zombie followers who truly believe that Trump's problems are all "the media's fault" instead them being Trump consantly stubbing his own damn toes.

Like others have said, deligitimizing the media is step one towards a dictatorship.

That Comedy Central roast a few years ago proved that Trump can dish it out as good as he can take it. He truly impressed me that night. I actually believe he would have loved to have attended but that Bannon convinced him not to to further "the agenda".
