    The first two seasons of Bull****! are available on DVD, and well worth owning.

    Their episode on conspiracy theories was great. They covered the moon landing, the Kennedy assassination, and 9/11.

    They introduce the author of one of the 9/11 conspiracy books, and show the cover of the book.

    "We're showing you the cover of the book because if you ever see someone carrying one, push them down a flight of stairs..."

    Good stuff.

    I was just like Bud, no offense Bud - LOL, I wasn't going to waste my time. But sounds like it may be worth it.

    Penn & Teller did a great job with that video!

    I've gone and sent the link to a whole bunch of friends and family. It gets the message across extreemly well with humor, wit & good interviews/information.

    Thanks for posting the link!

    Great vid. I especially like the gang member part about how gun control is a joke. Bad guys don't go to a gun store and fill out forms and wait 2 weeks for their guns. They go to tony down the street and buy one out of his trunk with its serial number scratched off.

    I think it would be the most horrible thing ever to watch your parents die when you could have stopped it. She has to live with that for the rest of her life. It wasnt her fault but try telling her that.

    we need to pass laws to abolish these gun free zones, like they said in the vid, most horrilbe man slaughter massacres have happened in gun free zones, because there is no one there with guns to stop the people with guns that don't care about the silly laws!

    More to the point is not to pass any more laws, but repeal the ones that put the restrictions in place.

    The BATF has issued a letter that states they only recognize your resident permit as an exemption to the Gun Free School Zones. So that means when I'm in Minnesota carrying on my Utah permit, I can't go within 1000 feet of a school without following the transportation laws of Minnesota. Meaning I have to unload and put it in the trunk.

    I'm pretty sure I know who wrote the letter to the BATF. If you know any gun rights activists in Virginia you probably know him as well.

    My son sent me the web address just this evening and I watched it; great stuff! You do need a high speed connection to enjoy it though.
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.

    For some reason I just wasn't that impressed with it. Good points made, I'm glad to see they're in against gun control; probably just me.

    Did anybody else notice that even when handling the "prop" guns he had his finger off the trigger?
