Here’s this week show!

Originating from KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, The Jimmy Dore Show is an irreverent and humorous take on today’s headlines and hypocrites. The program skewers politicians as well as the corporate mouthpieces which make up today’s mainstream “news media.” Each and every week, The Jimmy Dore Show provides the unvarnished truth with a twist of funny.

Too bad nobody else is picking up on the need for guns to protect civilians from their own government. Don’t get discouraged Jimmy, keep pushing that thought cause it’s right.

I’m not completely convinced that it would be effective. The idea may even be obsolete, but if it is then the conversation should turn to implementing other measures that will prevent a tyrannical government. I personally thinks its too late. If a government that implements a the NDAA is not tyrannical, then what is?

The idea that the US has a functioning democracy is nonsense.

Thanks for the show Jimmy.

p.s. punching my one thought:

Obama, Biden are war criminals under UN Charter: Analyst

“If a government that implements a the NDAA is not tyrannical, then what is?”

Amen David, Amen.

Great show as always, I especially enjoyed the obit for The Storming Moron. Speaking of morons, didn’t that idiot on the Piers Morgan show sound a lot like our old friend Moron? Anyway, a couple of points:

We do not need guns to protect ourselves from government, as some of your people pointed out the government always have more guns, and more trained killers, the way to overthrow the government is through non-violent resistance and by convincing the government sponsored killing to stop killing.

I should also point out, that the 2cd amendment was NOT intended to allow citizens to resist their government, it had two purposes, to make sure that the STATES could resist the encroachment of FEDERAL power (as Robert eluded too) and more importantly, to protect rich people from slave revolts. Thus the real purpose for the 2cd amendment was to kill black people. This will surprise no black person. This latter point is much discussed in progressive histories of the period, such as Parenti’s ‘Democracy For The Few’ which I highly recommend
Also, we do not live in a democracy, in a democracy the people rule, we live in an oligarchy or more accurately a plutocracy, our system is run and staffed by the rich for the rich.

Also, when you say that women don’t make as much as men, please keep in mind that these studies don’t compare apples to apples, the original studies compared female nurses to male electricians, suggesting that male electricians had about the same training and background as nurses. This is of course obvious nonsense, since many electricians are independent businessmen, and no nurses are, and even beyond this obvious flaw, there is no reason to suppose that people of the same level of training will be paid the same in a different field. And that’s assuming that the presumption of the same training is even true, which frankly I doubt. All electricians may generally be paid more than nurses, and probably are. This whole business is one of those false equivalencies that you guys so often skewer.


Jim, if you call the police the government, then it makes sense to have a gun just in case they use excessive force. Thank you for these awesome podcasts. I love you and your friends. You are all super ha bisky.
