A Letter from the Rude Pundit to Joshua Boston, Gun Owner and Fellow Epistolarian:

http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-letter-from-rude-pundit-to-joshua.html

"Dear Joshua Boston,

"First, let me compliment you on writing a full-fledged letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein regarding your strong feelings on guns. The epistolary art is one that is fading in this electronically-mediated age. So, indeed, kudos to you, sir, for taking the time and effort to say something you believe using more than 140 characters at a time and mostly good syntax and punctuation.

"Now, that aside, I believe the only response to what you are writing is this: What fucking fantasy land are you living in? Seriously, it's like the NRA fucked Glenn Beck with a dick made of talking points and he shit you out fully formed, crazy, and ready to go, with Rush Limbaugh and Fox 'news' as your molesting uncles, fingering your asshole so that you only say what they fuckin' tell you to say.

"You wrote to Senator Feinstein, who actually just stood up for the right of the government to keep secret the extent of its surveillance programs from even basic scrutiny in the name of 'security,' a clear abrogation of due process guarantees. I'll bet you were fine with that constitutional ass-reaming.

3. It is clear that this guy is over the top, in a self-destructive stage, and

 

more likely than not suffering from PTSD.

He was a real warrior.

He needs help, but it is unlikely that he is going to get any.

So as you, warrior1, were a "warrior," how do you want to proceed? Should we all pile on him? Why not? His feelings aren't going to be hurt any more. And, from a keyboard, it is perfectly safe to do so.

6. "Smart" has nothing to do with the development of self-destructive behaviors or PTSD.

 

You want to pile on? Go for it. Others on this board may notice, but he won't.

8. He put himself out there. I really don't give a fuck about this guy.

Freedom of speech allows all of us to except the status quo or fucking do something about it. I'm for changing the laws on assault weapons and high capacity clips.

9. I Tried To Explain To Mc That I Have A Son Who Served In the 3/7 In Iraq

 

I know how many of kids in his unit died, I know what happened to my son and how he was nearly killed and was awarded the Purple Heart. The asshole Fox apologist in this piece wasn't wounded or awarded a medal as far as I can tell, but some here on DU just have to blow their indignation horn.

10. Yea.

I'm for no kids getting killed. Adults too! I'm just so sick of the violence. Thank you for your son's service.

4. White Night, Big City

The pundit continues:

"Here's the other problem, though, with your letter, one that the conservative punditocracy and media have pretty much avoided. You say, 'I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.' Now, put aside for a moment that Feinstein is a gun owner who witnessed, up close, the results of gun violence against elected officials, and put aside that perhaps those things might give her a bit of perspective that might be worthy of hearing out.


In case you need a little refresher on the incident of violence witness by Diane Feinstein, Chuck Prophet created a video:
