    I'm not a fan of Penn and Teller. They're generally too closed minded for my liking (In my honest opinion), but I agree with them on this issue.

    Are penn and teller from Canada? I thought I heard that once. Anyway, they are pretty good, look them up on Youtube, all kinds of good stuff on amendments, politics, taxes, America, and Illegal immigration.

    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    Closed minded?

    You must be thinking of different people...

    Penn is a self described libertarian nut.

    Maybe it was their episode on "Alternative medicine" that gave me that vibe. It hit a little close to him, and they seemed pretty dick-ish, and misinformed in it, along with some of the other stuff they've spewed off about it.

    I love their shows don't always agree with them....
    They do state that they are totally biased right as their disclaimer.
    I love the fact they are libertarians...and even when they are biased they are not for the gov. regulating what you can or cannot do for yourself and your body.

    Their episode on Gun Control was right on the money.
    Their episode on the Bible... yeah, not so much.

    The way I see it, whatever the topic, they bring good points.
    How boring would life be if everyone thought the exact same thing as you.
    Most people only listen to other people that think the exact same way as them.
    They have a few episodes that bug me but that's what life is about.
    Try to see something from a different point of view once and a while

    They are heavy believers of personal rights, no matter what you believe, it is your right to believe it.

    As far as Penn and Teller, they do take some cheap shot but .. at least they're funny.
    and they have intelligently written dialog.
    Better than most shows on TV

    Are you talking about the snake oil, the colonics, or the dolphins that communicate healing powers through ESP?

    :P

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    Snake oil? You mean the stuff that is put on snakes to lube their body up?

    I'm not going to discuss anything on here non firearm related. Any discussions about this can be discussed via PM or the Social Lounge.
