I knew I had seen that name before, I just couldn’t place it.

Mark Karlin of Truth-Out, the John Corzine look-alike, who was blathering on about Bush, Slave Labor and Arizona

He’s back, causing a ruckus two weeks ago, blathering about guns and penises.

How do they think this stuff up?

Many American White Men Worship Guns Because of Sexual Insecurity, Entitlement, and Profit:

You won’t find anyone willing to dare say it much in the media, but a good percentage of the white men who oppose gun control of any sort – and who back measures that would even allow alleged terrorists and straw purchases for drug dealers to buy guns – are just afraid that without their guns, their phallic power will be reduced to size.

You can feel at least temporarily reassured when a long-barreled assault weapon compensates for just another average manhood; it’s an irresistable [sic] testosterone high to the beleaguered white male….

A gun, particularly assault weapons and lethal militarized handguns, are at least two things: a prosthetic dick and a sign that even unemployed white guys still rule the Western World and sit at the head of the kitchen table….

The reality is that for many of the gun “culture warriors” (and remember that they have the gun industry with a profiteering motive egging them on through the NRA and other gun groups), they are standing at the edge of a cliff with the multi-cultural hordes surrounding them, even governing them.  And women are now supervising them in the workplace or in the same jobs as they do, if they are employed.  And many women are now sexually independent and don’t put up with a male sense of sexual prerogative.

Oh yes, and the American empire is facing threats on several fronts. Globalization is eating away at its post World War II dominance, with nations like “the yellow peril” of China becoming economic power houses….

This is not an issue about self-defense; this is about psychological need — born of sexual and curtural displacement — assuaged by the possession of a killing machine.
