There was the big simpsons discussion on weather they were gun supporters or not on tonights episode the police chief said we cannot help you until your dead or dying and also he said we cant help you but we can punish you kinda reminds me of how when a bad guys shoots at you and you kill them and call 911 the cops show up to take your gun away and arrest you.

Just another illustration of the masochistic tendencies of the liberal mind. Leftist enough to believe only the state should possess weapons, cynical enough to realize that the state can't (and has no obligation to) protect anyone. Liberals actually enjoy suffering, as they're addicted to their emotional reactions to it. It helps them produce art, can't you see? ;) Groening is a strident anti. Most "correct" political views are stated by Lisa Simpson in the show, and in regards to the 2A she said, "The Second Amendment is a relic from colonial times. It has no meaning today." The Simpsons succeeds at caricatures, but when it goes political, it becomes merely annoying.

Strange that an anti would have "NRA4EVER" flash on the cash register in the intro. Lisa is also a vegetarian, does that make Matt a card carrying member of PETA?

I'm getting real tired of explaining this over and over again, but so many people think Matt Groening is pro-gun due to that one stupid special episode. "Matt Groening's pro-gun! Cash register says NRA4EVER on it!" The NRA4EVER readout is not on the original intro scene. It was a gag put in a Simpsons "behind the scenes" special hosted by Troy McClure. Matt Groening is not pro-gun. The idea that Groening, a total leftist/liberal, would sneak that right-wing message in is absurd, hence the ironic humor. On the same episode, Groening is portrayed as an old, one-eyed, pistol-toting, tequila-guzzling psycho. Again, irony, because Groening is nothing like that in real life. The joke flew right over your head, like with most people.

Stranger still that a keen observer of the Simpsons would be unfamiliar with absurdity and sarcasm as comedic devices.

sometimes it seems like the show flip flops from side to side, whatever it is I don't think they like clinton much, " well I am a pretty lousy president"

Yeah. They once had Clinton say something like "Hell, I've done it with pigs. No, seriously! Real live pigs!" when he was trying to seduce Marge.

The creators of the Simpsons are certainly liberal, but when it comes to skewering absurdity, they are equal opportunity. C'mon, you HAVE to admit that "Bloodbath and Beyond" as a name for a gun shop is pretty goddamned funny!

Uncle Herb: Here Bart, I got you a lifetime membership to the NRA! Bart: Cool! Can I get a machine gun? Uncle Herb: Sure! It's all in the 2nd ammendmant!

Oh yeah...Homer refered to Jimmy Carter as "Bill Clinton with a FOX attitude." They bash Carter ALOT!
