    Good Old Dianne Feinstein

    Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms"

    Yep, - she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. .


    And the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

    Kurt Nimmo: "Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill."

    Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times: April 9, 2013

    "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California , but we
    Seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office.
    I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine , even comes
    Close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington , we're
    Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw
    The likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy
    Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'.

    The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You
    Don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel
    At their ability to form words."

    -- Columnist Burt Prelutsky,

    I take extreme insult as I'm a vet and I'm not mentally ill. So, in other words one should never join the military to defend this country because we will all be considered mentally ill and lose constitutional rights according to Feinstein? She needs to be committed to an old folks home for the mentally infirm if you ask me, for those of you who vote for this senile person shame on you. Does this apply to all previous service members or just enlisted? Many presidents and members of the congress and the senate have been veterans, including many in law enforcement, doesn't make sense to me? This statement by Feinstein takes the cake, this old bag has officially snapped!

    Apparently Snopes is saying that the honorable Senator was mis-quoted. If so, I stand corrected - on that part. But I still fully agree with the newspaper article.

    According to Snopes, what Feinstein actually said was just as prejudiced against, and just as insulting to, all military veterans as was the "misquote."

    (It is illegal to quote Snopes directly, because its material is copyrighted.)

    The gist of Feinstein's actual words was that: It would be impossible to tell whether a given veteran was suffering from PTSD, so we can't generally trust veterans with weapons; that it would be impossible to tell whether a given gun buyer was indeed a veteran; and that PTSD is a brand-new disease, peculiar to the recent Middle-Eastern wars.
    None of these pronouncements is factual, all of them are easily refuted, and all actually have been refuted, says a third-party commenter who was added to the thread by Snopes staff.

    Good catch on that one Steve. While she definitely spun her words well, her thought process is glaringly obvious. She is well past her expiration date and should be put out of our misery!
