Alex Jones is (really) crazy.


Piers Morgans statistic is kinda useless to me though. Okay there this big difference in gun deaths. Besides the very obvious population difference, why doesn't he reference if other crime went up relative to decrease in firearm deaths.

Also, I think using recent mass shootings as the impetus of super-strict gun laws is absolutely stupid, and kind of selfish. Far less people (a minuscule amount) are killed in that fashion than in more intent driven murders (gang, drug related stuff).

LOL

Though I think a fear of the massive amounts of psychologically altering drugs, starting at a young age, does defiantly makes me not completely discount this angle.

As for this point, I wouldn't say its "kinda useless" but maybe that it doesn't tell the whole story.  Whether or not other crime goes up or not, deaths is a much bigger deal than burglary.  I'd rather have 200,000 burglaries than 30,000 murders.  No?  Unfortunately, it's hard to tell whether or not Piers was going to reference any other crime or where he was going with any of this because Piers never got to even begin this debate he was planning on having.

Alex Jones is not to be taken seriously. Sadly many swear by his words.

Never disagreed about Alex's lack of manners (or grace or tact or general sanity for that matter)

I guess I find it "kinda useless" precisely because it "doesn't tell the whole story". Tough to prove a point without looking at the whole story.

Though I don't know many debates where one of the debates asked all the questions, so I don't know why Piers was imply that this would be a debate.

Well... Jones will add to his niche following, but I think he turns off the majority of classical liberals like myself with his batpoop crazy antics. Stop yelling, man.

Piers probably just wanted to show us how crazy Jones is. Mission accomplished.

I see Paul as outside the mainstream, but mostly principled.  I see Jones as crazy and exploitative.

Being "outside the mainstream" doesn't mean you're not crazy. Which Ron Paul certainly is :)
