If so, they have 2 threads, one in Activism, one in W&P about the assault weapons ban. Still thinking of a response for it here, thought someone else might want to jump on the bandwagon.


Edited to add... this is MrsGungho, I just forgot to switch user names.

I'm still a member there, under the name cat_astrophe, but I don't post much anymore. I just listened to Feinstein on PBS, so my head allready feels like it might explode, but I'll try to formulate a response suitable for mothering later.

I noticed in the Activism thread that she states that the ban has basically protected us from all these evil assault weapons, and we must renew it in order to avoid another Columbine.... huh?? The shootings at Columbine happened after the ban in the first place, so if it didn't prevent it then, so what makes anyone think it will prevent it now??

I'll go check it out. I don't post much anymore. Those ladies make my eyes cross sometimes. And I've always avoided the "activism" threads because it's like arguing with a 13 year old girl. All hormone and emotion.

Cat I noticed you had posted... thx
I to was already fuming with high blood pressure when I seen the posts. I couldn't formulate a peaceful answer at the time. I have since.
I very rarely post there, mostly sit in the shadows and read, because like you, they anger me so much and it is so hard to have a conversation or debate with them. The hatred and round about attacking from the left to the right is truely enough to make a grown man cry.

I knew I stayed out of "activism" AKA "if you don't think like me you're an ass-tivism" for a reason:


in the "What's new in my reproductive area: if I get "accidentally" pregnant" thread I found a link to www.superlefty.com

lovely.

OMG cat, I feel bad. I ask for help, then when shit hits the fan, I am no where to be found. I went to bed early last night and missed it all. I have however posted a response this morning and someone I don't know, jumped on OUR bandwagon!! YEEAAAA. I'll try to check in more often today, make sure it doesn't get out of hand.

ETA. You did great too BTW.
Link Posted: 9/11/2004 5:29:00 AM EST
Some of us sleep....sorry to leave you hanging cat!

Link Posted: 9/11/2004 6:05:53 AM EST
Sleep!?! What are you people doing sleeping while I'm arguing in activism?? I think I was allright, but I need someone to watch it today because I have a million and one things to do. It's getting ugly over there...

Persephone, I always stayed out of activism for the same reason, but I started lurking over there, and the conservative mamas need the backup. Besides, we can't do like DU and isolate ourselves with like minded people. Maybe someone was reading that last night and got a revelation. I can only hope.

There is a thread there titled "do we really want the same thing?" and I had to restrain myself. I wanted to say:

Sure, we all want an ideal world where there would be no need for violence or the courts or abortion clinics. The difference is, conservatives accept that the world is still a long way from ideal and act accordingly, while liberals prefer to walk around with their heads in the clouds pretending it is allready perfect.

I think that might get me banned, though.

I'm going to be home most of the day. I have 3 rooms to paint!! (that's why I slept last night) I will take breaks every now and then and instead of getting fresh air...... I'll check the boards! (like now)
