  1. Last I saw her on was playing the totally psycho mom of Sandra Bullock in the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. But I guess she wasn't playing a role but being herself.

  4. Stupid actors, always repeating what someone else wrote and thinking they're so clever for it.

    Bunch a bird brains.

  6. Some amendments are more equal than others.

  7. Actor- a non sentient being useful only for regurgitating thoughts and emotions fed to it by another.

  8. So...
    By her same logic, 1st Amendment rights are only applicable for late 1700's era newsheets, town criers and opinion pamphlets like Paine's Common Sense.
    It does not apply to radio or TV broadcasts or the Internet...

  9. I think Alan should hand the internets to TBG. Just sayin'. Or is there more than one?

  10. I don't understand why people unthinkingly accept the opinions of someone who makes a living out of pretending to be someone else.

  11. Actor = Ignore... and +1 on TBG!

  12. Love Buckaroo Bansai, but she was shit in it!

    also +1 to TBG, gotta love the double-standard that some rights apply to modern tech...but others don't.

  13. I guess she doesn't listen to that mean ol' Supreme Court, in Miller and (much more limitedly) in Heller.

    (I'm going to ignore the "semi-automatic machinegun" thing, since after all, it's not like anyone she knows could tell her the difference, given that deliberate misinformation is the norm on the subject, in those sorts of crowds.)

  14. Just like Animal Farm, some rights are more equal than others.

  15. She says, using a means of communication undreamed of by the people who wrote the First Amendment.
    One thing I learned in Con Law, a technique one uses to interprete one Amendment is usable and appropriate to interpret another. Ms Barkin, if the Second Amendment is only about muskets and blunderbusses (Blunderbi?), then the First Amendment is only about quill pens and printing presses made from winepresses. If the Second Amendment is only about hunting ducks, then the First Amendment is only about pornography, so, Ms Barking, STRIP.
