Hi all! Tonight's Guess the Pundit is another outstanding one: Mao vs Jewel

Wow, Matt Tiabbi percolating on current events on FMU, this is fantastic!

Yes, next week it will start to be half live - a recorded interview sometimes, live interviews other times, and they also hope to start taking phone calls

dan savage talked about suggesting we talk about the last one. he smart
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 6:10pm Kali G:

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:16pm Sebastian:

this is so freaking unreal, I don't know anybody who owns a gun and I never touched one in my life
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:16pm sheepfriend:

guns are like star wars legos, get the starter get the mods.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:18pm melinda:

Yes, it's the lifestyle/identity that the firearms industry has managed to push that's the real problem.
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:19pm Dean:

A "no-brainer." You can say that again.
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:19pm Sean d:

star wars protest signs say "zappers not guns"

i have a german air rifle that shoots pellets and before i had neighbors i liked to shoot at tin cans. it's been sitting in the closet for about 15 years now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:21pm chris:

the 2nd amendment is not about hunting weapons. its about a well regulated militia which can step in to defend the people against an oppressive, authoritarian government. i think we should all agree it doesn't make sense anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:23pm dale:

we have an army now. we don't need civilians to pony up and defend us from taxes on tea. we count on poor folks with no better options after high school to die for our oil. er, i meant tea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:27pm melinda:

@chris you're right. They didn't see a need to regulate hunting weapons. It doesn't make sense anymore now that we have an army, but I don't see us changing it either.

Yeah, I wished I still lived in NYC, I would go see him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:32pm TDK60:

Northguineahills: Where from in WVa?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 6:34pm northguineahills:

Ronceverte, outside of Lewisburg in Greenbrier County in the SE of the state. Grandparents were from New Martinsville and Fairmont.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/5/17 6:38pm TDK60:

Ronceverte! I lived most my life in Morgantown up in the north. I was at a folk/oldtime/etc. festival in Ronceverte circa '78 maybe.

What about Jesse Ventura? He was a gov, after he was a wrestler
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:39pm Dean:

Schwarzenegger? Reagan?
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 6:39pm Switchblade Batman:

Arnold too. He showed up in wrestling then was a gov
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:40pm Dean:

Bodybuilding and action flicks, comedies
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 6:41pm Switchblade Batman:

I was thinking wrestling specifically @Dean, but yeah. Action flicks count for this
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 6:42pm Switchblade Batman:

Oh, and obvs Idiocracy. President Camacho was a wrestler. That's what it reminds me of
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:43pm Dean:

Right, point being one can argue Trump crossed a barrier, but celebrity dunce to chief executive isn't the barrier. Not sure what it is. Feels more like a sudden drop in expectations.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 6:53pm Switchblade Batman:

Mao
  Thu. 10/5/17 6:55pm Dean:

I.A. Richards is *loving* this.
