    I'm a youtube *****

    so the title was supposed to be a word that when shortened is the name for a popular garden tool, but I guess the forum bots didn't like it, so let's say I'm a youtube freak

    I'm sorry guys, but I find stuff on youtube all the time that I think you all would find interesting. Here's rapper Ice-T's take on gun control. I may not agree with everything he's done in his past, but he certainly get a tip from my hat on this one.

    He said it right. Very pleased. That was, in it's simplest terms, pretty much it. I am really pleased to see people speaking up and not just pointing to sporting or hunting, but the true reason for 2a, defense against the rise of tyranny. Penn & Teller did a guns episode of Bulls Hit a while back, and that was the first thing they said about it. I was giggling like a flucking schoolgirl when I saw that episode, because I felt like someone was telling a secret.

    The funny thing about Penn is that he has stated that he hates being around guns.

    Interesting how the interviewer completely avoids answering that question "If everyone had a gun, would you want to be the only one here without a gun?"

    Go Ice-T! Now if only he could wipe that "Law and Order" business from his resume...

    Yea, I'm a YouTube***** also. Are there meetings we are supposed to go to or something? Saw this yesterday, was going to post it but got sidetracked by gkids out east here(MD/PA/CT) we are visiting for the summer. MISS the DRY heat !!!!

    I thought he was righteous and right on. I think many Americans have never read the Federalist papers and need too. They would learn a lot of why the forefathers wrote the way they did and why laws were written to protect the people from the government and not the other way around.

    Ice-T has a fixation on the 'pol-esse' as is evident at the 0:52 mark. This could be a hold over from his 'Classic Ice-T' days in gangsta rap. But, he is completely right regarding the tyranny thing.

    IMHO I think he's completely right about the police as well.

    I think the police themselves are not inherently evil. They are people like you and me. What is wrong is the training and standards that they are (not) held to. I think there is a real chance of fixing this. It may take years or even decades, but it is possible to get them on the right track. Its going to take people like us with video and audio getting our rights violated. Mitchell Crooks comes to mind. Ultimately, the large part of the problem with many cops is that they are trained to use bullying tactics to accomplish their goals. That has to change. When the police respect their constituency like they do their boss, that is an excellent step in the right direction.

    Thus I try to not throw around generalizations about police. The problems are bigger than that, and laying it squarely on the lowest man on the totem pole is not the answer. He is not released from responsibility, however, it's his bosses boss that I want in a sling.

    This is where Oath Keepers fits in.

    You are correct, thus why I said "In My Humble Opinion" and I made no generalizations about LEO. But please note that always in the back of my mind is the wonderful saying "Who will watch the watchmen?"

    Again, IMHO I see nothing wrong here.

    This is actually a reference to a song by another rapper named KRS-one. The undertone of the reference is not so much literal as it is lyrical (as well as metaphorical), for what the song as a whole represented. Did you feel that? I just dropped some knowledge on you lmao!

    In any case-regardless of what Ice-t said 20 years ago about keeping guns in his kid's room or his opinion about the poe-lease, I am happy to hear someone of his stature dropping knowledge on pundits as to the TRUE purpose of gun ownership - to protect the everyday man from a tyrannical government.

    I never said anything negative about the video I posted, and don't see too much wrong with anything in it, myself. I just thought it was interesting, so I posted it.

    Sorry, the art of tact is lost on me and I come across as defensive sometimes.
