Wicker speaks

Senator Roger Wicker had this to say about his vote on the school safety bill filibuster last week:

Well, I wish he'd made this decision, not because the NRA directed it, but because debate is important to a FUNCTIONING democracy.

Being the puppet of any special interest group on either side of the aisle should not be a source of pride but of embarrassment!

Clearly, our Senator doesn't understand that special interest groups have to forment fear and conflict and misrepresent to get their membership to grow and to get money to pay the lobbyists.

Given my strong support for veterans, I'm more than confused by his comment on veterans' gun rights. Does he wish to make sure that those veterans who suffer from PTSD and are suicidal are exempted should we deal with keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill???!!!!! I suppose we could reduce our spending to disabled veterans if we make sure more of them can kill themselves easily ( sarcasm).

8:32; I agree Wicker is a dull tool in the box of implements; however, there's no reason to imply he's chummy with Lindsey.

8:27; Ya done good til you got to 'forment' (sic). 2:67 urculdj

How low will the approval ratings of Congress have to get before our Senators and Congressmen understand we want them to actually govern?
We might as well rename the parties POP I and POP II for Parties of the Pandering!
And, worse, those without a brain that hasn't been bought, run off those who can think for themselves by being mean spirited obstructionists!
READ and study issues for yourself, Senator!

Just as i said last week. Sen Cochran's vote was the smart play. He never had to explain why he voted the way he did because no one was mad at him. Wicker was trying to do something alot of politicians like to do...THINK. The votes were there without Wicker why bother getting involved Wicker? Next time Senator...dont think so much....Haley Barbour did it one to many times!!!!!

Wicker, our rights are not debatable!

TRAITOR. Weasel Wicker is a TRAITOR. No debate is needed on the 2nd amendment. Stupid move Weasel.

Seems to be a tremendous amount of ignorance here. No where did Wicker say "rights" were debatable.

But, there are people in government that want to limit our rights either with new laws or with executive decision and the debate needs to happen to educate them about the 2nd amendment.

Additionally, there are a bunch of things surrounding all of this besides just background checks and gun registrations. Wicker said he will filibuster the final bill if restricts the rights of citizens.

All of this name-calling and uproar over a procedural vote is laughable at best. It's sad that so many here think their rights exist in such a minute matter. Something so important should not be decided by procedure

Considering the reduced frequency with which you are releasing comments from moderation would you suggest we only check in once a day going forward?

Lots of 'top water' commenters here who really have no clue what his vote actually meant and did not mean.

@11:46 Haley Barbour said a lot of stuff as well but in the end he pardoned a bunch of pre-meditated murderers. I guess Mississippians are a little jaded now. Plus if you have to explain your vote or hope people are mind readers of your ulterior motives your an idiot.

God save us from the fanatics who can't tolerate anyone else's point of view .
God save us from fanatics who engage in verbal or physical assaults on those with whom they do not agree in hopes of frightening or humiliating others into submission.
Committing violence is evil but so is encouraging hatred and violence.
Fanatics aren't able to persuade others because their position is strong and their cause is just, so they intimidate.

Thank you Curt. I understood what it meant but suddenly I was 'ignorant'. (according to 11:46) Our rights will now be up for debate. I guess the folks out here who are not attorneys are supposed to keep our mouths shut and never have an opinion. Wicker is a traitor.

Actually, the people are stupid.

They are stupid in numbers and even more stupid due to social media and a compliant mass media.

They don't know what Wicker's vote meant. Wicker's vote, along with all of the other Republican Senators, meant that they understand that a filibuster was only for THAT DAY. Had they filibustered, the bill could simply be brought up again and again and again. Force the filibuster again and again and again.

It shouldn't be too hard for an individual to imagine what the gun-grabbers along with a compliant media would do with that scenario. It also shouldn't be too hard to understand that would likely lead to loss of seats in the mid-terms, which would lead to a much easier passage of actual gun bans, registrations or outright confiscations.

So, instead of parliamentary games with our God-given rights, it's going to be debated. And quite frankly, I do not want the fate of such an important right decided by an internal Senate procedural matter.

9:14 am, I'm not an attorney but I am smart enough to know what I don't know and what I do.
I'd suggest you don't know nearly as much about your " rights" as you imagine.
You have the right to be stupid( and are clearly exercising that right) but you don't have the right to endanger others with your stupidity.
I'd suggest you look up the word, traitor, but I doubt it'd do any good to someone who reads but has trouble with comprehension.

I hope the Obamatollah will quickly move to register all pressure cookers in light of events this week. We must track all cooking utensils of such lethality.

Bunch of ass-wipes here that do not want others to have opinions. I stand with Rand. Wicker is a weasel/traitor. I know the definition, perhaps YOU should look it up 11:02 am. Weasel betrayed the trust of the majority of his constituents. Read his facebook page if you can understand it. They have plenty to say. Enjoy your day AW.

Pete Perry said...

Curt, Rand does not speak for the entire Republican Party. You do not have to "Stand with Rand" or else you are a Dem. Sorry, but that's a little extreme.

12:53pm...if you aren't drunk out of your mind, something is serious wrong with you.

KF, I'm disappointed you didn't delete this one as it's so clearly the product of a sick mind.

Do we really need Crowley to descend from on high and tell us the relative importance of Wicker's vote? If Crowley had less of a personal vendetta and more of a relevant point, his infrequent appearance here would be more educational. Do we really need his lessons on 'why I dislike Wicker'?

Of course , you pick up a dictionary and were literal 10:22 pm
A vote on gun control that allows debate is not " a cause". That is where your thinking is a crazy thought pattern.
Also, that you are unable see that inflammatory rhetoric incites those whose mental illness is worse than yours ( I hope) to violence in the belief that their fellow crazies will regard them as " patriots" is indicative of how disturbed you are.
Rational people understand words are powerful and understand the imnportance of civil discourse.

I'm not surprised given the attacks on Wicker on right wing blogs that he was sent a literal poison letter as the blog messages have been poisonous.

Nor will I be surprised if the Boston bomber is a right wing terrorist like the Atlanta and Oklahoma bombers. Attacking a city in a state that is seen as liberal isn't a big step for right wing nuts.

What is your literal understanding of " You reap what you sow" ? Do you imagine that is about farming?!?

7:28 am here...suspect in ricin letters is from Tupelo.
He sent a letter to Obama as well.

I doubt this will give anyone pause for thought, but it should.

Curt Crowley said...

You far left loons are tiresome. Stop trying to control the narrative by marginalizing anyone who speaks forcefully about issues important to them. This is the game the left plays, and it cannot go unchallenged.

The Godless Sodomite at 7:28AM appears to have even less respect for the First Amendment as the Second. Anyone who believes that the deranged few are driven to violence by protected speech on a blog--as opposed to the raging electrical fire inside their heads--is a moron.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
