So let me guess, this is another one of those programs solely focusing on how awful The United States is compared to the rest of the world and blah blah blah about guns and how no one else does what we do, or deals with what we deal with, or how we should be like the "perfect" places that apparently exist in the world, am I still in the ballpark? Lol.

UberBored21 That's an easy way to dismiss irresponsible behavior, regardless of the country or circumstance. What isn't as easy to dismiss, if one is actually looking at reality, is a public figure participating in an instructional video for guns in the hands of three year old children in schools in order to stop "naughty men". 

Or do you also advocate for such behaviors?

mrsnowmeiser - Yea because Sacha Boran is such a legit spokesman for gun control and hes doing this for his deep love of the nation & such compassion with all seriousness. I'm sure to a liberal this is like watching PBS & equate it to a documentary. To the rest its his stupidity and lessens the real questions at hand.

savagenation I'm not discussing Sacha Cohen as a legitimate spokesman for gun control. You are deflecting from the meaning of my comment which is: giving guns to and training 3 year olds is irresponsible behavior and should not be dismissed by further deflecting to US hate as a scapegoat. 

Does it help if I mention I am a gun owner myself? It shouldn't, because regardless of how many guns I own and what my views are, the fact remains (to me, at least) that giving guns to three year olds is a terribly irresponsible thing to do.

mrsnowmeiser If you would've taken the time to properly read what I've previously written, you'd know that I agree that giving a gun to a 3 year old is terribly irresponsible. What kind of behavior do you expect from people who're borderline retarded? I mean, if you lived in a village, would you take to heart the word of the village idiot? Give me a damn break.

UberBored21 I was responding here to savagenation, not you. I responded to you-first-below in more detail. Read my comment I sent to you and we can continue our discussion there.

I will comment on your one bit above:
"I agree that giving a gun to a 3 year old is terribly irresponsible". This is what I was talking about in my original comment when you went and wrote two long comments against me, mostly not addressing what I even discussed. From what I said, it was pretty much as simple as that (although I admit to an error below). The point is, yes, this is terribly irresponsible, but we have people in this country in positions of literal national power who not only believe but are willing to publicly advocate these things on camera. This is the problem and I applaud Cohen for exposing these people in this case. That's it. Read my comment to you below for more detail.

mrsnowmeiser and besides that, you're one to write about how easy it is to dismiss something. It must be so easy for you to dismiss any factor beyond "Guns are bad. Guns kill people. Get rid of guns." because no doubt you're one of these people who's lived their entire life privileged enough to not have to fear for their life or maybe you're just ignorant or dumb enough to really think you're safe, maybe you don't care. Regardless of your affliction, it's not advocating irresponsible behavior to point out how exhausting it is to hear all this anti-gun mumbo jumbo because there are psychos out there abusing their rights. Mayhaps if people looked at the situation as a mental health issue instead of a firearm issue, I wouldn't feel the need to get snarky about the lunacy of anti (and pro) gun logic. Yes, it's stupid to give guns to 3 year olds (if that's even the truth of the matter) but it's also stupid to just think that "taking away guns will make the world a better place." Good luck with that one, Sir Real.

mrsnowmeiser See, this is precisely the kind of comment I was expecting to reel in with my remark. I mean, I love how people like you can't refrain from jumping to the conclusion that just because someone is from The United States or is pro-gun that they must support that orange troglodyte. Please, don't pretend for even a second that you've got me figured out, it will only further embarrass you publicly. I haven't dismissed irresponsible behavior, that's just what you decided to peg me as doing because your emotions have clearly blinded you. If you're truly one to preach about not dismissing irresponsible behavior regardless of the country or circumstance, you've sure got a lot of elbow room beyond The United States. Good to see you at least had maybe a split second of consciousness that allowed you to quickly add in "or do you also advocate such behaviors?" before hastily pressing the enter button and blowing all reasonable doubt out the window...because if you think I don't realize you wanted to jump the gun, you've clearly mistaken me for one of your typical online drones.

UberBored21 Ok, there is a lot to unpack here between both of your comments. Jumping in:

"It must be so easy for you to dismiss any factor beyond "Guns are bad. Guns kill people. Get rid of guns." because no doubt you're one of these people who's lived their entire life privileged enough to not have to fear for their life or maybe you're just ignorant or dumb enough to really think you're safe, maybe you don't care."
First off, 1) I am a gun owner myself (although not handguns...not a fan personally; don't see the need statistically) and 2) I've lived in Detroit in the past and still live close, just north of it in a not so great area. Do I feel unsafe? Sure, compared to the rich areas, but I also don't reason that I need a gun to protect me. My MMA training will be far more likely to protect myself than any gun will. I'll concede that guns to defend oneself in Detroit is arguable, however.

"I love how people like you can't refrain from jumping to the conclusion that just because someone is from The United States or is pro-gun that they must support that orange troglodyte. Please, don't pretend for even a second that you've got me figured out, it will only further embarrass you publicly"
No where did I jump to any conclusions you claim. My comment (read it again for yourself) is that you are dismissing irresponsible behavior (aka training/giving 3 year olds guns) which you yourself agree is "stupid". Conversation should end there because we agree to the basic premise of the exchange.

"it's also stupid to just think that "taking away guns will make the world a better place." Good luck with that one, Sir Real." Not sure where you got those quotes from, because I never said them. Again, I am a gun owner myself. You are putting imaginary words in my mouth.

"Mayhaps if people looked at the situation as a mental health issue instead of a firearm issue, I wouldn't feel the need to get snarky about the lunacy of anti (and pro) gun logic."
I agree with you that it's largely a mental health issue in the United States (although the easy access of guns certainly drives gun injuries/deaths and must be addressed). Also, the lunacy of anti gun logic? You do realize that the US is one of the most extremely pro-gun countries in the word, right? That makes the US, by definition, extreme (whether that is right or wrong...again, I didn't make an argument either way in my comment). 

I admit my last comment was bait and unproductive. I'd delete it, but that would be dis-honest in a way, if you ask me.

Bernie caught on straight away that he was dealing with an idiot or a troll. He stayed polite but didn't play along.

Cohen falls down when he tries to troll "ordinary" families (cf Borat) when it's clear that they think he's obnoxious but are too polite to say anything.

Some funny parts but overall it's more like staring numbly at a nasty accident and trying to make sense of what you see. Although this focuses on extremes it does highlight the bat shit crazy aspect of US culture. The section where the phrase "it's not rape if it's your wife" raised laughter and a handshake was particularly chilling.

emmettyville So far at least one teacher who is also a reserve police officer trained in firearm use accidentally discharged his weapon and injured a student.
Another teacher left her gun in a school bathroom only to be found by four students aged 6-8.
So, yeah. Arming teachers. What could go wrong?

Just so Americans are aware, this series is being shown world wide.

And you wonder why people protest trump and think your country is a disgrace.

Also, Russia is demonized for attempting to influence politics, yet a comedian pretending to be an Israeli Terrorist Killer can influence American politicians to the point they start promoting fake satirical programs that anyone with half a brain realises are horrific.

johncourage "This last World Cup the singer gave the camera the finger"

yes that was Robbie Williams, and there is noting extraordinary about him doing that during a performance. 

"Only the left is demonizing Russia for its alleged interference. The left are all low information voters"

As a matter of fact its both the Left and right that are demonizing Russia, Look at Trumps idiotic right-wing fan base and you consider the left as low information voters?

asking a trump voter why they voted trump is hilarious,  they give minimalist answers that are direct repeats of his really basic speeches. MAGA, Get rid of illegal aliens, Moar jobs!. Not to say that there are also some on the left that are just as stupid.

As far as the Russia stuff goes though, im in favour of Russia over the US and my own government. Russia may have done some bad stuff in recent years, but what we have done is far, far worse. Hence why they are doing everything in their power to demonize Russia. Polititians need a boogyman to scare voters to keep their minds on matters that are irrelevant compared to the catastrophises they are creating.

"We elected him because we wanted him."  Why would "We" want someone who throughout their entire business career has been a shyster of a business man who has zero ethics and has made countless poor decisions that has forced his businesses into bankruptcy?  On top of that, how can you be for a "President" that is looking more and more like someone who is infusing said shady business practices into his political endeavors?  Russia, under Putin, is not our friend, never has and never will be.  

And before you reply, let me reiterate that I am a proud Independent registered voter who actually "thinks for himself"...I don't give a shit about liberals or conservatives.

skypirate I'm not sure what that has to do with my comment.  If you are referring to the Obama picture I wasn't referring to that and it wasn't posted until after I replied to dkm458, nor does it have anything to do with what I wrote. 

If you are referring to the pictures of Obama, both of them (Putin and Bowing) are taken out of context.  The bow is customary, just like George Bush kissing the king of Saudi Arabia.



Neither of them is anything to get worked up about.
