Red Asner never did get to play Joe Stalin, his dream role he discussed in an interview. Something about what he got accomplished BESIDES killing tens of millions of people.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur -- what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The right to bear arms might have been said as “the right to self defense”. That makes it consistent with our other rights.
I find it interesting that the Dred Scott vs Sandford lists the rights citizens of the USA have, on which is “The right to keep and carry arms wherever they went.”
And I still get a thrill when Ed Asner gets slugged in the face by Robert Mitchum in El Dorado.
Not to moron libs, anyway. It is so simple; the first part acknowledges the need for and desirability of a citizen militia. The second part states that the right to keep and bear shall not be infringed. Nowhere does it limit the keep and bear to that militia. End of discussion.
Actors are people who pretend to be other people from other times and places. In essence they are storytellers. Their job is to communicate by voice, inflection , physical appearance, etc. A situation, or event. So their job is to communicate well. But does that inherently make what they are communicating more important or relevant than what others think, say or believe? Obviously, they seem to think so. But it doesn’t. What they are saying or doing is no more relevant that what the next guy thinks. And it’s time Americans stopped treating actors, writers and directors as some kind of sage or prophet. They are just people who tell stories.
