1Laona: Do you think your post is comprehensible to anyone? Why do you think your rant is understood, let along respected by fair-minded readers? What are you on, besides an ego-trip. Want communicate, do so in reasonable terms. Why don't I think that's possible for someone who considers themselves to be #1 in Laona: Quite a self-described honor. I feel like a cat playing with a mouse: amusing but not going to lead anywhere. Pathetic.

1Laona: At least you admit you live in the 'margin's' because your 'opinion' is in the minority, which probably bugs you given the recent election and newly enacted state laws. You are really good at assaulting the integrity of writers without evidence. You speak of 'thieves' trying to 'trick' us (You?) Care to inform us with your evidence? Or will you continue your assault on America. Who is trying to trick whom, and why? "Libs" and anyone who doesn't see it your way. Define a "lib" or "socialism" or any of the other things you think you hate. I don't think you have a clue about 'classical liberalism' and its relation to today's libertarianism and its opposition to 'liberal' (progressive" ideals. I don't think that you could survive a minute of face-to-face confrontation of the facts of the matter. You don't have a clue, do you? Only an opinion and fear! Common, admit that you're just spewing your pent-up anger--at what? Be clear. Let's

It's pretty comfortable here in the margins.The people are good citizens who stand up for the rights our forefathers fought for.They don't react well towards the thieves that try to take,trade or trick them away.

1Laona: Two things you reveal in your rant. First, that you don't tolerate debate (except maybe about sports) and hang around places where the echo chamber is really loud. And that you assume that "the campus" is the enemy (i.e., a center of information, argument, dissent, and reason). I'll debate you in a bar or on campus (although I'm 4000 miles away from the campus at present) but that would be a waste of time: you'd utter your usual slogans and insults, and would have no facts or rational to support you beyond insults and irrational displays. You're a piece of work, to be sure. What 'right' beyond free speech allows you to think that the nonsense you utter is worth reading? I won't waste any more time with you because by now only your echo chamber is reading these exchanges. Misery loves company, doesn't it? You can all feel put upon by Obama, or government, the American way of life and, poor you, are left in the margins of society to complain about your situation

1Laona: What a lame excuse for a reply that might have occasioned real thought. I suppose your argument is that you're wiser than those who support (via the first Amendment) gun regulations on what is a growing crisis in our country? You offer the usual slogans, without any evidence (other than displaying an American trend to conspiracy theories: in this case, that the government (Obama) wants to take away your guns and therefore your freedom). In America, last I looked, it was not only OK but recommended to discuss controversial affairs. Can you say you've made a positive contribution to this process, or have you been standing on the side-lines complaining when the referee goes against you? Tell us: What do you really hate about America and your life? Why your hate-filled talk? Your baseless allegations. Baseless? Give us some evidence for your paranoia. Don't make assertions you cannot back up. In a bar, that might get you a punch in the face, but this is more important.

1Laona: What is the 'one world view' that you oppose, and how is it represented in my commentary? If the allegation is that there's only one solution to any problem, I don't agree with that. But the solution is to be reached by dialogue and honest consideration of the positions we hold. I can defend mine, in public, in words. Your response doesn't meet American standards for dialogue and open discussion. You're 'one world' solution doesn't fly: other societies have settled these problems without the mayhem that you and yours fear. Guns need regulation, just as teens do and for the same reasons: they're explosive and most often irrational. Fortunately, teens get over it and grow up; the impression I get from you is that you're at the same stage as teens where everything that the adult world does seems wrong, and there's no debating it. I feel sorry that you feel that way but, more importantly, such an approach to life is a threat to all others who can converse without insults.

1Laona: Aside from hiding behind a pseudonym, you are once again dead wrong. I wrote elsewhere that you're entitled to your opinion but not to the facts you claim. Any search of Google (etc.) will reveal that the US leads the world in death by guns! So cite any reputable finding that says otherwise. In fact, the Aussie's have been contributing to the US dialog with positive stories about their gun reform. What is it with you and others of your ilk? Why do you make up facts, or accept those offered by ideologically like-minded citizens paranoid that they are being invaded by criminals, the government, whatever. What, pray tell, is your evidence? I await your attempt to show that gun reform in the UK and Australia resulted in the figments of your imagination. Too many of your ideological persuasion pass on this kind of drivel as fact. It's simply wrong! BTW, in your 'research' consult the figures for Japan--another country that regards guns with admirable suspicion and care.

Yes you are intentionally missing the point.The point is (again)that after the Brits and Aussies were disarmed the home invasions,rapes,murders robberies spiked and have been higher because they can't defend themselves.Still going to fast for you Regulateski SE? I'll post twice maybe that will help

1Laona: How ridiculous, as usual. You appear to be totally misinformed, yet given to insults against your opponents: check any data base you want and compare the US vs. UK stats for homicide (suicide, etc) vs. guns in the US. Or Japan? Both countries have avid hunters (think of a fox hunt in the UK) yet incredibly low gun incidents. Like too many on these strings, you are woefully uninformed by the facts, though not the least deterred by them. You just ignore them. I pity you if you ignore the other facts that influence your daily life. What else are you missing?

Mike Davis: I'm pleased we can agree on Big Universities-although on different bases: I'm a (former) insider who has and continues to battle that status quo. What I wonder, is how aware of the status quo of your thinking your are aware and critical of? Much of what you contribute sounds like talking points and slogans of the anti-government crowd. I'm not at all contesting the 2nd amendment. A reasonable argument for reasonable gun reform (not control) can be reached! Since you've admitted to not being a gun owner, while I am, I can't understand what your problem is, other than some kind of anti-government, anti-Obama, anti-social agenda? Most of us in America can have reasonable disagreements and make progress along these lines. I don't have that sense that you're open to such intrusions on your ideology. But I'd like to share a beer (or whatever) some day. You have my email address: rather posture for your audience, we might communicate directly.Might be informative.

Mike Davis: You bet, Big Everything is a complaint also against big universities, the Big Business of college sports, and the corporatization of academe where Universities are increasingly run on a corporate model.This is not good and, again, the small guy (the parent) pays while these excesses go on and on. Yet, a higher education(than HS) is more than useful in sorting through the rhetoric and complexities of American life these days. I don't see much of it in these strings. 1Laona is turned off, stumped, defeated by reason and evidence and resorts to the usual emotional name-calling. Very un-American; even though the Tea party claims to be patriotic, it amounts to a tea kettle letting off steam. In its fear of Big Government, why not focus on Big Everything--where the problems really are. Let's start with banks "too big to fail or bail-out" that gouge us daily. Now we wander from Big Guns (NRA) and its agenda for America.

Tom, does "Big everything" include the diploma mills, for HUGE amounts of money, we used to call Universities? The world of Academia is going to become the next bubble to burst the economy. I've heard numbers as high as a trillion dollars in student loans are outstanding and that amount is growing. Teaching seems to have become very lucrative indeed.

I still don't see any evidence that a reasonable person could accept that the various complainents in this string about socialism understand it. I don't support it, but when we're in the "sticks and stones" realm, which is too often, it is helpful in a Democracy that such allegations are based in truth and understanding. Most of those who ***** and moan about 'socialism' and the 'nanny state' don't know what they're talking about. They're simply uninformed. Define it without going to Wikipedia. Your version is sure to be amusing.

1Laona: your sources please of your 'accusations that lead you to call me an "elitist." How do you know who or what I give money to (other than not the NRA)? Also define 'elitist--I'm sure it will be as amusing as your definition of socialist. I'm the son of a butcher who got ahead by hard work; something that's no longer possible in this country, dominated as it is by Big Everything. Maybe we can agree on that?
