Dumb & Dumber

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- James and Sarah Brady made comments today related to Vice President Cheney's reportedly accidental shooting yesterday in Texas.

"Now I understand why Dick Cheney keeps asking me to go hunting with him," said Jim Brady. "I had a friend once who accidentally shot pellets into his dog - and I thought he was an idiot."

"I've thought Cheney was scary for a long time," Sarah Brady said. "Now I know I was right to be nervous."




You know some things really speak for themselves......

  2. Let's just hope it was an accident. Why would Dick Cheney try to shot anyone, with all those witnesses around. Doesn't he have enough trouble?

  3. What an unfortunate accident. You would think a 78 year old lifetime hunter would have better sense than to stand behind someone without announcing he was there. Especially quail hunting, a dangerous shooting sport to begin with.

    I understand Jim Brady suffers some brain damage from his shooting so I will cut him a little slack, but I will not cut his wife any for her tasteless and idiotic comments.--ST

  5. Imagine grown men hunting little helpless quail, who were probably with their babies, foraging for food. I'd like to propose that we change this sport of theirs. Let me get out there with my rifle or shotgun, and hunt them. Wouldn't that even up the odds a little bit?

  6. I agree with ya. I can understand hunting for food to eat because you're starving, but hunting for sport? Bullshit!!

    The reason you have hunting seasons is to allow animals to raise their young with out being hunted.

    Let's see if I got this right. You're equating the killing of animals with the killing of people.

    If you have ever eaten meat you have contributed to the killing of some poor little animal. Does it make that much difference whether you or some one else kills the meat that you eat. Maybe you believe that animals that are raised on farms have less of a right to live then animals that are raised in the wild.

    I have hunted and killed animals in the wild. I have also raised animals to eat. Tell me which animal it was immoral or wrong to kill. If you are a veggitarian, and believe that killing animals to eat is wrong, I can at least respect your opinion. But if you are a meat eater you really have no room to talk.--R.T.

  8. Hey RT see I knew I had to put something out there to get you to comment!!!

    I don't believe in killing animals for sport, I just never saw the need for it.

    The reason you have hunting seasons is to allow animals to raise their young with out being hunted.

    I totally agree with this. And I also know that overpopulation in many areas and hunting season curbs that problem. ANd believe it or not Bud's mom knows that too.

    Let's see if I got this right. You're equating the killing of animals with the killing of people.

    Where do you get that idea? Or were you talking to mom? Look, mom's a smart person and is very passionate about this. She loves animals, especially birds, I mean she REALLY loves birds and she has taken care of a lot of injured birds and other wildlife. So while yes she eats meat, it's hard for her to comprehend shooting birds.

    Do you remember sometime when we were in high school a story came out about how they produce veal? Prior to that story, my mother used to make us veal parmesan and it was DAMN good. But once we watched that news program that showed the horrible conditions the baby cows were kept in, we just couldn't eat it anymore and believe it or not we haven't eaten it since and I'd say it's been some 20 years. We're not vegetarians but what meat we eat we'd like to believe was killed humanely (although we can't be sure about these companies which process chicken).

    I have hunted and killed animals in the wild. I have also raised animals to eat. Tell me which animal it was immoral or wrong to kill.

    Robert, nobody's saying what you did was immoral. If you kill animals legally to eat, I have no problem with that, for me it's the "sport" thing that bothers me. I don't hate people who do it for sport, I just don't like it. If you kill it, eat it. I've seen carcasses, talked to people who have seen carcasses just lying there after having been killed. Now that makes NO sense to me. And for me and mom it's the killing of birds that we really hate.

    Robert, we've known each other a long time and our opinions might differ although slightly at times, but your tone seemed angry and I hope that's not so. So we disagree? It doesn't mean we have to be angry....so I hope you'll take this in the spirit it's meant ok?

    Jessica, we've know each other a long time. I can't ever remember being angry with you. Even when you were a flaming liberal.

    I consider you a friend and I don't get mad at friends for a difference of opinion. Maybe my writing style is a bit sarcastic.

    I could continue to argue sport hunting with you, but it seems I have offended you. This often happens when men and women argue. Men give you the facts, women tell you how they feel. I'll treat you the same way I treat my wife in these situations. Yes, dear, whatever you say.__RT

    Hey Jess, don't you think I could be a Dr. Phil show. "Women who love cute, cuddly, but sarcastic men."--ST

  11. Susan, only if I can be on the show with you, in other words I know exactly what you mean!

    Hey Robert it's your nature to be passionate about the issues (God do I remember that well!)

    I want you to know I don't see any sarcastic tone in your writing! And I am not offended. Actually while I usually don't care about offending others, I do actually care about offending the people I care about. So, I was concerned maybe my remarks might have come across as implying hunters were--well you know, less than human. I know that isn't true. So if anything I thought I might have offended you.

    I'll treat you the same way I treat my wife in these situations. Yes, dear, whatever you say.

    Oh gosh you sound just like my husband! LOL Great minds think alike eh?

    :) Jess
