    Were American colonist trying to protect the British's 2nd Amendment rights on American soil? Of course not. WHY?

    IT WAS WARTIME! Opposing sides are protecting their troops and interests by eliminating their opponents weapon arsenals. Gezzz!

    Palin is ignorant as hell about a lot of things, but she is truly a Servant when it come to spinning political issues.

    Palin's story is as ridiculous as claims by fundamentalist Christians that dinosaurs walked with humans.
    As the professor pointed out, the idea of 2nd amendmet is certainly ridiculous. However, as the professor also pointed out, the British were indeed to be going after the weapons stored in Concord, in addition to possibly arresting Adams and Hancock.

    Sure, she's a ditz. But people are making this way bigger than it should be.

    Well, she helps. Much like that Weiner fellow help make his story bigger than it was.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    He was obviously over compensating for his... shortcomings.

    Again...going after weapons during wartime is what opponents do.

    In my humble opinion....

    If there was an invasion "today" by a foreign or domestic enemy...and that enemy was trying to take over an arsenal...you can bet you ass that that a call to arms by a patriot wouldn't be about the 2nd Amendment. It would be about the preservation of our nation - it's people, resources, and treasure.

    And Palin is a ditz...but the professor was propping Palin up:

    And Sarah Palin also was saying there that Paul Revere's message to the British in his warning was: you're not going to take American arms. You know, basically a Second Amendment argument, even though the Second Amendment didn't exist then.

    Prof. ALLISON: Yeah. She was making a Second Amendment case. But, in fact, the British were going out to Concord to seize colonists' arms, the weapons that the Massachusetts Provincial Congress was stockpiling there.

    So, yeah, she is right in that

    Well, we somewhat already had that for the former and a tiny bit on the latter. His name was Arthur Schlesinger Jr for the former, and Woodrow Wilson, or perhaps Patrick Buchanon for the latter. I agree in sentiment.

    You didn't know about the human/dinosaur story? It seems that the real reason there aren't any dinosaurs any more is that they became "serpents" after the fall of Adam, and so had to eat the dust of the Earth.

    Surely, you've heard about the dust eating ex dinosaurs? It's recorded in the same place where Paul Revere rode off to warn the British that they couldn't take our guns away, where we find that the moon landing was faked, that Bush was behind 9/11, where high flying jet planes are spraying us with chemicals, and global warming is a hoax. Let's see, did I leave anything out of that? Oh, the aliens who actually were behind the Kennedy assassination.

    Again, if you want to know what twisted reality some Conservatives reside in, look no further than Conservapedia.com ...
    History of dinosuars

    Creation science asserts that the biblical account, that dinosaurs were created on day 6 of creation[3] approximately 6,000 years ago, along with other land animals, and therefore co-existed with humans, thus debunking the Theory of Evolution and the beliefs of evolutionary scientists about the age of the earth.

    Creation science shows that dinosaurs lived in harmony with other animals, (probably including in the Garden of Eden) eating only plants[4]; that pairs of each dinosaur kind were taken onto Noah's Ark during the Great Flood and were preserved from drowning[5]; that many of the fossilized dinosaur bones originated during the mass killing of the Flood[6]; and that possibly some descendants of those dinosaurs taken aboard the Ark are still around today.[7]

    Archaeological, fossil, and documentary evidence supports the logical conclusion that dinosaurs co-existed with mankind until at least relatively recent times.

    And if she'd just say "Oops" and have a laugh at herself once in a while, she could kill the stories about her that she doesn't like.

    Someone is giving her really bad advice with way too much frequency.
