Now it is taking away guns; now that brilliant Professor Rev Al says we should have knives confiscated; can this get any clearer? Is the will of the "Collective" more important than the American citizen?

Rev. Al Sharpton told a radio caller that it could be time for knife legislation in addition to gun laws.

“In any civilized society you do not see massacres continue to happen, from Tucson to Aurora to Columbine to Virginia Tech to where we are now in Newtown to Chicago and you keep the same laws when clearly they’re not working,” the MSNBC host said on his radio show Friday.

“What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” the caller asked.

“Then you deal with knives,” Sharpton replied. “The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it.”

    What a moron.
    If Uncle Al was spending time behind bars (as he should be) he'd understand that even in the most locked down society, people make weapons of all kinds and still kill others.

    isn't this the same Rev Al Sharpton who supported Tawana Brawley in her lies and accusations? Of course he says he was duped along with the rest of NYC. Now that begs the question - either he's a lying sob or he's so easily fooled that his opinion means nothing. Can't have it both ways and based on his track record, I tend to think it is the former although his opirnin still does not count.

    The collective, as set up by the Constitution is stated in its Opening statement;

    "We the People of the United States,"

    If we are losing our freedom, then it quite likely this could be one of the factors. When people start believing the collective is the government, then "We the People of the United States," are on their way out the door. I seen this coming when this president and current Congress no longer wanted to follow the maxium;

    "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence." this the statement made in Article 4; Section 4 of the Constitution.

    “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” ~ George Washington

    Some people have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices.

    “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” ~ George Washington

    Some people have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first a patron, the last a punisher.

    Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer. Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise. For were the impulses of conscience clear, uniform, and irresistibly obeyed, man would need no other lawgiver; but that not being the case, he finds it necessary to surrender up a part of his property to furnish means for the protection of the rest; and this he is induced to do by the same prudence which in every other case advises him out of two evils to choose the least. WHEREFORE, security being the true design and end of government, it unanswerably follows, that whatever FORM thereof appears most likely to ensure it to us, with the least expense and greatest benefit, is preferable to all others.

    An inquiry into the CONSTITUTIONAL ERRORS in our present leaders in our government is at this time highly necessary; for as we are never in a proper condition of doing justice to others, while we continue under the influence of some leading partiality, so neither are we capable of doing it to ourselves while we remain fettered by any obstinate prejudice. And as a man, who is attached to a prostitute, is unfitted to choose or judge a wife, so any prepossession in favour of a rotten government will disable us from discerning a good one. This is clearly seen when the people of a government of the people, by the people, and of the people begin to believe that the collective is the Government, when the Constitution makes it clear that the Government belongs to the people in their collective state. The government of the United States was and always has, until lately, been owned and controlled by the representives of the People, which also is elected by the people and not by themselves.

    I do not have time now to hear all this video at this time, but I have saved it to my favorites for later viewing, perhaps tonight, but in listening to the first 5 minutes, I see that though Griffin calls his theory a “conspiracy”, he is really talking about tyranny of governments, which the founders of this country discussed to great length in their letters and speeches. However, “Collectivism” can fit many faces, one sees it here on SodaHead, and on other social sites such as Facebook. However, religion itself is collectivism to a point, but at the same time, Christianity, for instance, gives people the freedom to believe according to their own will, or to live by God's will, to which the Bible is credited. If people were follow the Bible to the letter, there would be no problems. Honestly read the Ten Commandments, and one can see a real freedom promised to those that will NOT steal, kill, covert, lie, or try to force others into some type mold they like to impose on everyone other than themselves.

    People have good reason to believe that there is as much of kingcraft, as priestcraft, in withholding the scripture from the public. For Tyranny in every instance is like a religion of Popery to a government. To the evil of monarchy, or tyranny, if people were to add that of her...

One of the strongest NATURAL proofs of the folly of hereditary right in kings, is, that history disapproves it, otherwise it would not so frequently turn it into ridicule by giving mankind an ASS FOR A LION.

    Would you really side with "Free will" if you could see such a thing? The truth is, Tyranny acts on the free will of the tyrant, and his will is to make sure that no one else can take away his right to impose his will on an entire country.

    People have good reason to believe that there is as much of kingcraft, as priestcraft, in withholding the truth of the Ten Commandments from the public. For monarchy in every instance is like a religion of Popery to a government. To the evil of monarchy, if we would add that of hereditary succession; is in the first, degradation and lessening of ourselves, so the second, claimed as a matter of right, is an insult and an imposition on posterity.

    Funny how generations of Democrats staunchly supported slavery, segregation, the KKK, and the first gun control measures. Democrat's original desires to ban firearms were to keep guns out of the hands of the black folks. And here all along, all Democrats truly needed were a handful of Al Sharptons and Barry Soetoros to achieve their goals. That and a whole lot of stupid people.

    I agree with his message (sort of)

    He has finally shown some consistency,

    Once you end all deaths due to guns, then you work on knives. after that we will work to ban electrical cords, baseball bats, forks, and screwdrivers.

    At some point in time, he will finally get to the root of the problem- we just need to ban people
