    Angry Loss of common sense

    I couldn't help but post this. Being younger I'm a bit more adept in social media albeit regretfully so. I saw this take place on twitter then upon seeing this article I just had to bring it to everyone's attention. It's a shame to see people with common sense get harassed by uninformed idiots.

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    I have to commend her for not jumping on the bandwagon and urging a common sense notion. Even more impressive is that she stuck to her guns , even though it cost her half her followers...not really sure why that is important though lol.... The last follower I had was my 4 yr old god daughter..... she followed me all over the house.

    The important thing to remember about "common sense" is that it isn't really that common.

    Sadly, I've begun to realize this.

    Well that just shows you how shallow some folks are. They follow these actors and actresses on stuff like Twitter and when they find out they are not liberal, all of a sudden they abandon their infatuation. As a side note, this actress plays a cop on the show "Longmire" which depicts a Western sheriff. She carries a Glock and the Sheriff a Colt 1911. Its a good show actually. Maybe those 2nd Amendment Supports on the forum who Tweet and stuff should get together and show a little support for her?

    As Reason.com reports, after a couple of hours Sackhoff had lost approximately 100,000 followers, but she did not give in. Instead she tweeted: "Well I guess just learned talking about #GunSafety inspires a massive debate. Pro-gun or Anti-gun SAFETY should be unanimous!"
    When it comes to the rabid anti-American gun grabbers there is NO debate, they either go on a screaming tirade or just shut up entirely.

    Don't worry, those were just the fans she picked up from her brief appearances on The Big Bang Theory.

    This is what happens when the state indoctrination centers... umm public education.... have indoctrinated and brainwashed children into believing that this is a democracy. In a democracy, there are no rights protections and everything can be voted away by 51% of the vote. We are, fortunately, a republic which is majority rule with rights protections. This means that the majority can rule, but they cannot vote away rights through legislation, ballot boxes, etc...

    Btw, good job Katie for sticking to your guns and standing your ground. I've always been a fan of yours since you played Starbuck. :D

    Why do people care what some actress thinks on a minute by minute basis? I will never understand the mentality where people follow some one on twitter and read their every thought.

    Even, so, good for her.
