“Nobody needs (whatever it is I don't think they should have)”


In this particular case, Whoopi Goldberg says nobody needs certain kinds of guns.
Really? Well, I don't think Whoopi needs chocolate cake, but I'm not going to pass a law to prevent her from extending her girth to even larger proportions.... What people need isn't someone to tell them what they may or may not "need." What they NEED is to be left alone to make their own (however good or bad) choices. There is no justification for a bunch of dim-witted people sitting around a table on TV telling individuals who are viewing what they need. Nor is there any justification for a bunch of dim-witted politicians doing the same down in Washington by passing laws about what they think the citizens need. What We Need - Maggie's Farm

I have heard some of my friends tell me, "No one really needs a gun." Well, frightening is the notion that we should define our freedoms based on what we think someone else "needs" to do. One lady told me, "No one needs an AK-47 to hunt deer." Well, yes, that's true, and in fact an AK-47 would be a rather miserable hunting gun. But freedom is not about what we "need," is about being able to do what we want. And if someone wants to hunt with an AK-47, then as misguided as that is, gun-wise, he should be able to do so. After all, we have in our Constitution a Bill of Rights, not a "Bill of Needs."

Look at it this way: no one needs a BMW or a Cadillac. A Chevy will do just as well. People buy a luxury auto not because they need it over a Chevy but because they want it. No other reason.

The freedom of a sovereign people does not spring from having or doing only what they "need," but being able to do and have what they want.

But I think that others, mostly the various gun-control groups, really just can't stand freedom exercised by others. They want to live their lives a certain way and make sure that everyone else does, too. They seek a highly ordered, regimented society made up of people just like them. This desire to control others is pernicious and dangerous. They are "invincibly ignorant" in their campaigns because the actual facts about guns in America mean nothing to them. They simply do not want you or me to own a gun, period, no matter for what reason. They do not want us to be free and sovereign.

An AR-15 is not a "rather miserable hunting gun (rifle)" and in the hands of an experienced shooter it is completely capable of taking any deer sized game out to a few hundred yards. I've killed a truck load of deer with a .22 Hornet and it's actually my preferred caliber in the woods where shooting distances are usually under 100 yards. With head and neck shots a properly stoked Hornet is simply amazing and there is no mess or drama with the cartridge.

But otherwise you are right, the Left is all about intimidation and social force and people who support the Left are the greatest threat to freedom and sovereignty.

It's simply too bad, actually it's a downright shame, that we can't ship all of them off to N. Korea.

The Left would not be happy in North Korea simple because there isn't anything left to ban. There isn't any food, no one has guns, protests are verboten,anything pertaining to LGBT activity is persecuted and you have to wear those silly uniforms and haircuts.

What kind of life is that for a rebel.

We have computers and TV and reading and writing and songs and paintings because the Mankind got past mere needs and produced a surplus.

These Lefties call themselves progressives but they want to move in the wrong direction.

Someone should give Whoppi an enema and brainwash her.
