    At the very least, idiots. But that’s supposing honest motives on the part of our pols. Which ain’t possible.

  3. avatar Steve says:

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    1. avatar Chief Master says:

      Dude, the unconstitutional, gun-grabbing actions of our politicians cannot in any way be explained by stupidity. It may have been stupidity for some people at one point long ago, but when they stop listening to facts and instead actively lie to further their agenda, it can be attributed to nothing but malice.

        Stupidity is only an excuse if you’re too young to READ.

          You can only give the “benefit of the doubt” so many times before you are kidding yourself!

  4. avatar Ben says:

    This is comming from a guy that doesn’t think we should have AKs. So basically a Fudd gun owner.

    I do like this quote however.

  5. avatar BlackoutFan says:

    Self defense is NOT a Constitutional right. It’s a basic right (extends beyond human) that is enumerated and protected by the Constitution, trampled on by those that seek control, allowed by those who seek (false) security.

      Very well stated.

    It took less than a second with Google to track down that Foxworthy never said that: http://www.snopes.com/politics/humor/idiots.asp

    1. avatar slowroll says:

      Snopes has not and never will be a reliable source. You may as well cite a Wikipedia page that has no cited sources.

      Someone that knows Jeff (probably) sent him the link to this page first thing this morning. He no doubt read the quote out loud in a commanding voice to his cat. Therefore its safe to assume Jeff foxworthy has indeed said the above statement

      Oh man. That does sound good…”steak” and fried Okra.

        Golden Corral’s roast beef is great as long as it goes “MOO!!!” when they slice it.

      Michael, sadly, you are right.

    Golden Corral ain’t the best buffet in the USA. And I don’t take my cues from old Jeff…

    1. avatar peirsonb says:

      Arguing over who has the best buffet is a lot like arguing over which toilet you want to lick.

  18. avatar Ralph says:

    You might be a redneck if you think that Jeff Foxworthy is funny.

    1. Since he makes fun of rednecks, they probably don’t think he’s funny.

      1. avatar AdamTA1 says:

        I know plenty of rednecks who think he’s hilarious. As they’re nodding in agreement with his jokes.
