The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Pity she's kinda annoying. Good stuff anyway.
That gun she holds up at the end appears to be a Hi-Point carbine. Just noticed because I have one of 'em. Scary looking, ain't it?
My thoughts exactly, Oz, but I didn't want to be the first to say so. Perhaps others might not find her difficult to understand and an ordeal to watch, but I was reminded how nice it was that I don't have children.
Otherwise, yup, it is good stuff.
She's a teenager. They're annoying by default. I got a major kick out of her.
My kid is great; it's other people's children I hate.
I wonder if that received on-air time? I think it would be an excellent thing, maybe if Radio Free Canada is up, we can use it.
I disagree, I thought she was great! I'm not a fan of kids, but she cracked this pretty well. As well, since she is a young teen type, she is disarming by age and by seeming to be on the anti-gun side. I'd be proud to have a kid like that, though I'd go fishing a lot more with three, four, or more like that, urhm, even one actually. But that's not the point.
I don't disagree, guys. She did good. But I am really pleased that I don't have to interact with that, um, that method of communicating, as it were, on a daily basis.
Actually she was rather refreshing to listen to. I have a hearing problem and it was difficult to follow because of that, but someone (hopefully her) had done a lot of thinking about the situation and a bit of homework.
I thought she did a wonderful job with her presentation.
And as "annoying" as her speach style might have been, she used correct language and not a lot of youthfull "filler" words. I am sadly disappointed with "mature" adults that do not use correct english, either written or spoken.
I actually think she was hamming it up a bit. Overdoing the "teenager" thing.
Pretty darn good, I say.
I think she was great! (And a little more teenagier to make a point).
The more other kids see this, the better for their 'those who keep us safe' scepticism.
Somewhat in reference to the previous post, this is why people aren't taking up (traditional) arms yet: we've got much more effective (and viscious) weapons to use against them.
Laughter - or at least ridicule - really is the best medicine.
I would love to see this get some major air play.
Ben, even when sitting quietly in the next room, your average teenager is still overdoing the teenager thing by an order of magnitude compared to how we remember our own teenager years. Back then, at least we were right about our intellect and older people's silliness!
This is pure genius!
