Scoot: Gun advocates going wild in LA legislature

The problem with some gun rights advocates is that their motive to carry guns is more about flaunting their 2nd Amendment rights than it is about safety. A Senate bill in the Louisiana legislature that would permit legislators to carry guns anywhere peace officers can carry guns, including parades, polling places and most public buildings, has advanced.

Franklin Senator Brett Allain says lawmakers should have the extended gun privileges.  However, Bradley Gulotta with Gun Rights Across America says, “By sitting here and saying that ya’ll are more important than the people you represent is hypocrisy.”

Since there seems to be no legitimate reason for legislators to carry guns in places where citizens are prohibited from having guns – then the only conclusion is that the Senate bill is another desperate attempt to flaunt guns – which was never the intent of the 2nd Amendment.

Legislators are citizens from businesses and neighborhoods across the state.  I do not know of any evidence that legislators face specific threats that you and I don’t face every day.  So, let’s call it like it is – a law permitting legislators to carry guns in places that average citizens cannot carry guns is another example of gun rights advocates gone wild!

The battle on both sides of the issue of guns rights in America has become hysterical.  One side promotes the ridiculous idea that if guns were illegal then there would be less crime.  The other side argues that if everyone was armed this country would be a safer place.  Both sides are absolutely wrong!

Rather than supporting a bill that would extend legislators' gun rights, would it not be more rational and logical to support conscientious gun ownership?  There have been too many incidents in the news recently that have proven that not everyone should own a gun, and yet, there are still those hard-headed gun rights advocates that honestly believe that more guns is the simple answer to crime in America.

As a radio talk show host, I realize that promoting either gun rights or stricter gun control laws are an easy way to get people excited, and that is the mentality of countless radio talk show hosts across the country. In the same way that there should be a logical and rational approach to guns in America, there should also be a logical and rational approach to dealing with issues on talk radio.

It is easy to support and promote a divisive side of a debate – it takes more time and effort to try to understand the logical and rational grounds of a hotly debated issue.  There is growing evidence that America is changing, and those who have used hysteria to attract attention are beginning to fade.  The flame of extreme one-sided rhetoric that is based on political agendas rather than truth is burning out.

The truth is, there are two sides of the gun control debate in America.  Strict control over those who are allowed to buy and own a gun in America is important.  And criminals might think twice about approaching people if they knew the potential victims were armed.  But neither approach is the answer to America’s crime problem.

People on both sides of the gun debate are quick to label and condemn anyone who does not buy into their extreme rhetoric.  However, those who strongly support extending gun rights and gun ownership seem much more likely to react to anything they see as an infringement on the 2nd Amendment.  If I say on the air that “everyone should not own a gun,” or “everyone should have to pass a background check to purchase a gun,” I will always be criticized for not supporting the fundamental right to own guns and that makes me an “Obama-loving, left-wing liberal who has no respect for the Constitution!”

Yet, I support the 2nd Amendment.  While it will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals or irresponsible citizens, I support background checks as a way of making an effort to stop some people from buying a gun.  I believe that the notion that everyone should be armed and carry a gun everywhere is a paranoid, right-wing extremist position from those who believe the government is working to put the United States under the control of the United Nations. 

The best way to bring a logical and rational tone back to the political debate in America is for more logical and rational citizens to engage in the debate and denounce the hysteria – often spread through social media – that leads to paranoia.

The bill in the Louisiana legislature extending the gun rights of lawmakers exposes the senseless hysteria over the gun debate in America. And since our state legislature seems to have a difficult time passing sensible legislation – what makes us think they could pass a background check?

Scoot said: "While it will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals or irresponsible citizens, I support background checks as a way of making an effort to stop some people from buying a gun." So Scoot, who are the "some people" you hope to stop from buying guns with these background checks?
05/08/2014 8:19PM
Yah, Let's be "reasonable".
You don't have the least IDEA of what you are proposing. So, you want "everyone" that buys a gun to go thru a "background check". Woo hoo. Hope that makes you FEEL better. Now let's look at SPECIFICS! So I sell you a gun. What if "we" don't go thru a "background check"? How is the good nanny state going to KNOW? Well, of course they cannot unless they KNOW what guns I have TO START WITH! And then of course they have to come around and INVENTORY them every so often. So now your FEEL GOOD "background check" has morphed into a REGISTRATION SCHEME, like in New York and Connecticut. And New York and Connecticut are CONFISCATING GUNS TODAY. DId you know that? Or do you CARE? Yah, you "support" the Second Amendment. And I'll bet you have homosexual and "minority" friends also. SO what? NO MORE COMPROMISE!

Not worth getting upset over Scoot.
He is a loyal Democrat that supports Obama and his agenda and he mocks conservatives and independents at every opportunity. Scoot is a partisan who trashes others for being partisan. In the end Scoot fills time on the radio when the more popular Sports Talk shows are not on air. He is not that bright and his rants reflect whatever the latest liberal talking points happen to be. He has to do something to fill the time slot.

Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn't that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing black women and others she deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." Is her vision being fulfilled today? http://blackgenocide.org/planned.html

ObamaCare Website Still Not Working
The $677 million website is still not completely fixed and will cost an additional $121 million in repairs for taxpayers. Obama’s goal is single payer and Scoot support government run health care. Scoot is stupid.

Gun Control
Is perhaps needed to save the lives of idiot posters here who troll and if given access to weapons would behave badly towards themselves and others given their obvious mental illness.
05/09/2014 12:15AM
ATF
Found many "missing" guns off the books of "law abiding" gun shops. Who do you think is getting those guns? Why are they going "off the books?" Guns without effective control over chain of supply and legal accountability forsales go to criminals. Period. Crack down on straw purchasing and retailers who "lose" guns and sell out of car trunks to criminals.
05/09/2014 12:17AM
Scoot seemed especially delusional the other night reeling off a series
of fairy tales. Good thing he has been off a couple of days. WWL really needs to replace his show with sports talk. Scoot ramblings are becoming embarrassing.

Washington State
It was nearly a decade ago when inspectors with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) first visited the sprawling gun store — three flat-roofed white buildings clustered on a gravel lot along Old Highway 99, some 70 miles north of Seattle. There they discovered that 2,396 guns — including hundreds of assault-style rifles and handguns — were either stolen, lost or unaccounted for. Unable to show inspectors the required paperwork about who had the guns, Kesselring’s owners were hindering police efforts to trace any guns found at crime scenes, putting the public at risk.

Gun Laws Need Enforcement
What’s even more disturbing is that the real numbers probably are much worse but difficult to quantify. Federal law requires that licensed gun dealers report any theft or loss to police and the ATF within 48 hours. But when it comes to determining how many guns have been lost by or stolen from private citizens, the ATF states: “Reporting by law enforcement is voluntary, not mandatory, and thus the statistics in this report likely reveal only a fraction of the problem. Additionally, even where state and local law enforcement are consistently reporting statistics, many states do not require private citizens to report the loss or theft of a firearm to local law enforcement in the first place. As such, many lost and stolen firearms go entirely unreported… Moreover, even if a firearm is reported as lost or stolen, individuals often are unable to report the serial number to law enforcement because they are not required to record the serial number or maintain other records of the firearms they own for identification purposes. As a result, many lost and stolen firearms enter secondary and illicit markets with their status undocumented and undetectable.” Got that? Much of this is because government regularly succumbs to the NRA paranoid conspiracy theories of a national gun registry that would be used to seize every citizen’s shootin’ irons. That’s why the ATF has been forced to trace guns, in the words of The Daily Beast’s Adam Winkler, “the way 17th-century monks copied texts: by hand.”
05/09/2014 12:21AM
NRA Handicaps Gun Law Enforcement
Every year tens of thousands of guns are discovered to be missing from the inventories of federally licensed gun dealers. Guns that go missing from dealer inventories, whether they are stolen, illegally sold without proper documentation, or misplaced due to negligent recordkeeping, pose two main risks to public safety: Guns stolen from dealers often end up in criminal hands. Following a two-year study of gun-trafficking investigations, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, reported that 14 percent of gun-trafficking investigations involved guns stolen from gun dealers. Guns lost or stolen from dealers are more difficult to trace because there is no record of who initially purchased the gun from the dealer. When these guns are used in crimes, any investigative lead offered by finding the gun at the crime scene goes cold when it is discovered that the gun dealer has no record of who purchased it. Since 2004 Congress has imposed restrictions on ATF in its annual budget that make it especially difficult for the agency to police lost and stolen guns. One such restriction prevents ATF from requiring gun dealers to conduct an annual inventory, a process that would allow dealers to promptly identify and report missing guns. In the administration’s fiscal year 2014 budget request to Congress, however, President Barack Obama requested for the first time that Congress remove this harmful budget rider.
05/09/2014 12:22AM
ATF
The problem of guns disappearing from gun stores is a substantial one. Between 2004 and 2011 ATF discovered nearly 175,000 firearms missing from dealer inventories during compliance inspections. In 2011 alone ATF discovered that 18,429 guns were unaccounted for during the course of 10,416 firearms-compliance inspections. Additionally, about 50 percent of gun dealers were found to be in violation of at least some federal regulations in 2012. And these numbers likely account for only a small portion of the guns that are lost or stolen from dealers each year. As explained in more detail below, ATF is only able to inspect a fraction of the nation’s gun dealers each year. In 2012, for example, ATF inspected only 19 percent of gun dealers. There are likely tens of thousands of additional firearms missing from the inventories of dealers who have not recently received an ATF inspection.

Wayne LaPierre is a rich spokesmodel
Just remember, behind every bad guy with a gun is a "good guy" who sold it to him, didn't lock it up, sold it on the internet or at a gun show, or "lost" it at his gun shop. Skrew it, maybe I'll move to a saner country. America's gun obsession is lunacy. Sure you may have the freedom to own guns, doesn't mean your attitude about it is necessarily reasonable or in balance with the times. It's not 1776 anymore. Times change, people change, maybe our beliefs about guns should change. They have for just about everyone but the rural US.

Scoot said Ted was was an idiot for opposing ObamaCare before it was rolled out.
Ted turned out to be right as the country saw this disaster get rolled out and then saw the President use executive orders to delay the most damaging parts of the law to get past another election. Cruz is a Princeton University and Harvard Law School grad and Scoot is just some clown doing a fill-in radio spot.
05/09/2014 12:29AM
Ted Cruz
Is a lunatic bent on destroying the opposition for his own ends and cost the US billions of dollars during the shutdown. His wife is an entitled insider for big banking and her husband should recuse himself of any votes that affect the financial industry. Cruz also thinks people should have the right to refuse service to others, and holds other idiotic ideas that are not forward thinking, realistic or tolerant of a pluralistic society. He's marginally brighter than Sarah Palin and as such is more dangerous. He has no business being a dog catcher much less in the US Senate. Let him run Texas!
05/09/2014 12:34AM
Should be
Let him "ruin" Texas, Perry started the job, Cruz can finish it nicely.
05/09/2014 12:37AM
Scoot also fails to acknowledge that with ObamaCare Americans do not
have a choice. They are being forced to sign up or pay the fine. The fact that folks are attempting to do this does not mean they support the law. Scoot support fascism and government take over of private industry.
05/09/2014 12:40AM
ACA
Was a conservative idea of the Heritage Foundation including the mandate and was promoted by Republicans - it isn't Obamacare. It's the same plan, now suddenly the GOP is against it because they are against anything the Democrats do. Ask Mitt Romney how that worked out given that he implemented it in MA as governor. The insurance is private so therefore it is not a government takeover, program or socialism. It's just a law. Deal.

Fox News Loves Gunplay
It’s bad enough that Fox News is pushing the narrative that young people are stupid and oversexed, but things have grown even darker recently with Sean Hannity championing the cause of Byron Smith, who was convicted of the premeditated murder of 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer. Kids had been breaking into his house when he wasn’t home, so Smith, clearly eager to use this as an opportunity to kill someone, parked his truck a few blocks away and snuck back into his house, waiting for some teenagers to break in. He clearly knew they weren’t a danger, just as he knew they wouldn’t break into his house when he was home. When the two kids, who were cousins, broke into the house, he gunned them down and then finished off the job, execution-style. He also made sure to lay out a tarp for the bodies to protect his carpeting. Obviously, it’s wrong for teenagers to break into houses, but the premeditation and the fact that they were nothing but petty criminals makes it clear why the jury had to convict Smith. Smith made an audiotape calling his victims “vermin,” and claiming he was just “cleaning up a mess.” Hannity vigorously argued that the right to self-defense should be broad enough to cover this kind of human-hunting. In a sense, the segment was the perfect culmination of months of youth-bashing on Fox News. Hannity got to scare his audience by implying, falsely, that there are armies of scary young people out to get you. He then encouraged them to see young people as a threat so frightening that murdering them in cold blood is an acceptable response. Conservatives are always on about how much they love the children. But apparently, the second they go through puberty, Fox News wants you to believe that the children are out of control and so frightening some of them deserve to be murdered. Generational warfare based on fear-mongering and lies might be good for Fox’s ratings, but it can’t be anything but dangerous for this country.

Obama and the Democrats want single payer and ObamaCare is a DISASTER. Obama has delayed major parts of the law because he knows it is cràp but does not care other than getting through elections and trying to fool people like you. You are just an Obama Zombie that has your head up your àss eating your own SH!T.

Demcrats celebrate abortion.
There record on children’s rights is nothing to be proud of. Democrats (leftist) lie about most everything. It is the only way they can survive. There is very little legit media left in this country. You have mostly left-nut propaganda——a lapdog press that gets in bed with politicians rather than reporting the news. Obama has the race card and plays it often. Obama is a proven failure, liar, and incompetent clown on the world stage. He can thank his lucky stars he has black skin. Democrats do not hold blacks to the same standards of excellence as whites.

Obama’s Anti-Growth Policy and Blunders to Blame for poor economy.
The stark difference between these recoveries raises the question: What is different this time that is preventing the economy from growing faster? The answer is that persistent policy failures emanating from Washington are causing the economy to fall short of expectations for four years and running. The litany of policy abuses is long and includes: The near $1 trillion stimulus in 2009; $6 trillion added to the national debt since President Obama came into office[8]; Obamacare; The Dodd–Frank financial reform law, which has suppressed bank lending; Environmental regulations on oil, gas, and coal production that have interfered with a more robust energy-sector boom; A general and sharp increase in regulations[9]; The inability of Washington to confront the looming explosion of spending on entitlements such as Social Security and Medicare as millions of baby boomers enter retirement; The uncharted waters of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing (QE) program and its ongoing tapering of that initiative, which has financial markets in a guessing game of what the Fed will do next and how these maneuvers will affect interest rates and inflation; and Tax increases from Obamacare and the 2013 fiscal cliff deal that raised taxes on investment and small businesses. Troublingly, this list is not exhaustive. These mistakes have all contributed to a ratcheting down of growth and help explain why so many Americans believe that the recession has never really ended.

Obamanomics: 92 Million Americans Not Working
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The U.S. labor-force participation rate sank to 62.8% in April from 63.2% in March to match a 35-year low, the government reported Friday. Some 806,000 people dropped out of the labor force, according to Labor Department figures. Real unemployment over 16%. Obama has the Feds printing money to prop up the markets to the tune of 85 billion a month. There is NO growth in the US economy overall. You have a number of Republican governors that have shown the way creating an environment for job growth in their states and getting rid of red ink. A child running a lemonade stand knows more about economics than Obama. Obama engages primarily in crony capitalism and is otherwise anti-private sector.
05/09/2014 8:32AM
Bottom line .. anyone who believes anything Obama says is a fool.
Obama has a well documented history of lying on major issues. His black skin allows him to get away with it as never before in the history of liberal liars. Contrary to the delusional Scoot and his Obama Zombie buddies, the majority of Americans wisely do not support Obama’s agenda and what the next president to go in another direction. The recent Pew Poll was devastating for team Obama and his lap-dogs. http://www.examiner.com/article/looking-very-good-for-republicans-2014-midterms-pew-research-poll
05/09/2014 8:45AM
Perhaps Congress should have required WWL to do a more thorough
background check on the delusional Scoot. LOL.
05/09/2014 8:55AM
Scoot spends too much time getting hysterical over Americans having freedoms.
He needs to calm down and get some sort of hobby before he dies of a heart attack or soils himself in public when raging.
05/09/2014 10:15AM
Leftists fear indiviual freedom and few people as chattel.
Leftists believe people in general are too stupid to manage their own affairs especially blacks and so they believe in 24/7 government oversight—the Nanny State. Leftists exploit tragedies to further their Fascist agenda. Certainly Obama and Eric Holder hoped that Fast and Furious would cause enough deaths that Americans would abandon their freedoms and allow Obama to expand his government to gain further control over individuals and states. Funny thing is it was Democrats in the Senate that killed his gun legislation.
05/09/2014 10:27AM
América became gréat because of freedom—especially economic freedom.
The greed of those in Washington and the lazy poor are eroding economic freedoms as government consumes more and more of private sector productivity and resources to satisfy its lûst for power and to buy the votes of the unproductive. Obama trashes freeenterprise and small business while engaging in crony capitalism.
05/09/2014 10:54AM
Dems promote poverty.
Most successful people have been down on their luck or outright poor at times in their lives, but being poor was never a lifestyle choice. The Democrat Party promotes poverty and government dependence because they need a bottom feeder class of people in order to maintain power. They seek to tax the rest of us in order to pay for their programs that keep people trapped in poverty.
05/09/2014 11:11AM
Democrats have demonstrated their approval of deviant behavior and excuse making.
They stood by and practically celebrated Clinton taking advantage of a misguided, immature intern. A real man, especially one in his position, would not have cheated on his wife, lied about it, and then have his wife make sure the intern is destroyed. Perhaps Democrats will finally be happy when they have a practicing pédophile in the NFL.

Single payer works for every other place that tried it, time the US moved forward. I hope it DOES happen. So what if the GOP wins midterms - Obama still holds the veto pen, and it might be hard for the GOP to come up with anything more than an ACA repeal considering that's most of what they've been doing since the bill passed. All they are about is obstructing the president, which as long as he's president, they can't do legislatively - and the 2016 demographics? Not looking good for a Republican. Win the midterms all you want, the country's over your right wing extremism. I don't see many Canadians complaining about a little "socialism" in their democracy. The American view is too narrow and insular - trollboy, pull your head out of your rump.

... and now our sports report ...
When Sam is not taken, or gets cut there will be an effort by ESPN and the left-nut media to stir up strife. Some groups will protest and raise money off the affair, but Sam is not a strong enough talent or personality to hold the attention of the country for very long. Only a very few of the most talented college players make NFL rosters. There are not many job openings. Football is God is sports these days and in the end, people care more about that for better or worse than whether some homosexual failed to make a team. This too shall pass.

While many have been reliving the Clinton sex scandal in recent days, Obama just announced that he behind Michael Sam all the way.

Michael Sam
Reality is Michael Sam calculated that becoming a crusader would give him the best chance to make a few hundred thousand, or at least earn some coin going through a training camp before getting cut. NFL jobs are scarce and very hard to acquire. Only a few of the best college players make it. He took a risk with that strategy and it may yet pay off, if pressure is brought to bear by the commissioner. This will be done in private—asking an owner to take him so the league can claim a big diversity campaign. In the end, most folks just want to find a way to make some bucks.

Funny. Scoot is the WWL token leftist and he does a good job of attacking
conservatives in order to stir things up. This is all game to get ratings and keep a show relevant. That is why they call it a “show” .. Scoot is not an educated person on much of what he drones on about. He is merely an entertainer filling a time slot. Roll with it and have fun.
05/10/2014 10:23AM
Liberals are always discovering new and improved ways to make fools of themselves.
Now they have given a COURAGE award to Michael Sam for announcing he is into þutt sex with other men. Gee, the average soldier have more courage. Folks you could make this stuff up. Pathetic but hilarious too. http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2014/story/_/id/10894871/michael-sam-wins-arthur-ashe-courage-award
05/10/2014 10:27AM
Then again, maybe Sam deserves the award as would any homosexual ...
with the risk of AIDS and STDs it does take courage for Sam to stick his pénis into another guy’s þutt .... good luck with that. He is a pretty good player.
05/10/2014 12:20PM
Just an FYI ...
Blogs, political forums, etc. are designed to be insult chat rooms. The Host will post something insulting, mocking and trashing one side and he reaps his intentions. It is a computer game. Folks need to relax and have fun. This is NOT a fifth grade debate class.
05/10/2014 1:23PM
The whole announcing “I am gay” thing ...
has become a weapon of the left. Most folks really don’t care who others are having sex with and really are not paying attention especially if they do not know them personally. Gays make these public grand-standing announcements and they and/or the media then dare anyone do suggest they do not endorse the choice. If one does not endorse the behavior choice then all hell is brought down on them. The real hate in all this mostly comes from homosexual activists and media members trying to prove they are somehow more righteous because they endorse gay behavior choices.

On this blog are morons - they have their points refuted so they switch to the next cliche. They never actually address the points raised or the evidence. I have refuted you on the IRS, Benghazi, guns, and hypocrisy so you just go onto another insult - that's telling.

More NRA Tastelessness
Fundraising and slamming on the backs of those Nigerian girls who were abducted. Stay classy, gun fetish nuts. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/05/10/nra-uses-nigerian-girls-abduction-to-promote-itself-and-slam-pajama-boy-liberals/

LOL ... He will get an invite to walk-on at a camp.

More Good Guys With Guns
Threatening federal agents, pointing guns at people and generally being "patriotic." The facebook posts would be comical if they weren't real - http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/05/09/1298029/-FBI-Finally-Show-Up-Bundy-s-Thugs-Suddenly-Deny-They-Pointed-Weapons-at-Federal-Agents-LMFAO?detail=email

Football gay boy
Scoot loves Obama and now add Michael sams
05/11/2014 8:42AM
"More Good Guys With Guns" ... who said the Feds were good guys?
You are government chattel. Get off welfare and and a real job. Poor fellow ... LOL.
05/11/2014 8:55AM
Sam choose to focus on politics and sex rather than football.
In the end, he will have to play football well, or few will care about his þutt sex exploits ... except of course clowns like Scoot.
05/11/2014 9:01AM
Pretty easy to win awards and make history these days.
All you have to do is stick your pénis up some guy’s þutt and play some football and the lunatics in the media soil themselves in excitement. No REAL heroes anymore just selfish grand-standing deviants celebrating themselves.
05/11/2014 9:15AM
You have to understand that in private Scoot thinks homosexual behavior is disgusting.
Scoot gets very angry when someone calls him gay. Scoot panders to the homosexual community much as he does to blacks. He is a typical white liberal who thinks he is fooling everyone.
05/11/2014 9:48AM
Sam won an award playing the role of victim.
Going through life as a victim is not a path to success unless of course you are a Democrat.
05/11/2014 11:25AM
$474 million for four failed ObamaCare exchanges...
and Scooter Boy thinks ObamaCare is a smashing success ... LOL ... the law has been delayed or changed 79 times ... Scoot needs to go back to FM Radio and play music. He is not that bright.
05/11/2014 12:25PM
Democrats worst kind of racsits.
Obama could rape one of his daughters on national television and Democrats would still make excuses. Obama is black and Democrats do not hold blacks to the same standards of excellence as whites. They are the worst kind of racist.
05/11/2014 12:30PM
Troll
Thinks that it's ok to threaten federal agents with weapons like Cliven Bundy and his motley crew. Cue his usual rotation of top 40 talking points from the right - GAYS! RACISM! BENGHAZI! THE IRS! DEMOCRATS ARE EVIL! OBAMACARE! GUNS! REPEAT!
05/11/2014 12:31PM
Trollboy
Thinks successful rich democrats are victims - or does he hate capitalism when liberals participate? Trollboy, America applies to liberals and moderates too! Some of us even vote, and you don't have the right to slander or point guns at us just because we win!
05/11/2014 12:32PM
Trollboy
You are a danger to yourself and others, seek help today!
05/11/2014 12:33PM
Let It Be Clear
Trollboy supports taking up arms against the government - he is a seditionist traitor to this country and should be locked up.

Trollboy's Obsessions
You're pretty obsessed with black people and gay men, do you have some secret fantasies you'd like to share? It's 2014 - you can come out anytime.
05/11/2014 7:33PM
Well, Scoot is no longer the King of Homosexual Talk Radio ...
ESPN has staked it claim to 24/7 HomoRadio. Sorry Scooter. You had a good run on top now you will have to bottom ...
05/11/2014 7:35PM
Looks like "Trollboy's Obsessions" the liberal clown still has no clue ....
perhaps next year ... no wonder he voted for Obama.
05/11/2014 7:36PM
Hey, Liberal Troll Boy ... you make us laugh ... you don’t realize you have
been led around like a dog on a leash. Relax and quit soiling yourself and just have a bit of fun.
05/11/2014 7:38PM
Congrats to Michael Sam!
He just became the spokesman for Buster’s þutt Lube® ... hey not bad for a seventh round draft pick. Keep up the great work.
05/11/2014 7:45PM
WARNING ... Beware of the the Liberal Troll Boy .. he is an online STALKER ...
He tries to pick up young conservatives on this blog ....
05/11/2014 7:54PM
yea, dude be careful that lib poster may be a pedophile.
you cannot be too careful these days.
05/12/2014 12:08AM
Defamation
Now that was just downright slanderous. Way too far. You do NOT allege that about people without proof.
05/12/2014 7:59AM
Polticial blogs and forums are insult chat rooms. The host trashes some group
and starts a fight and it gets an audience. Perhaps Scoot needs to quit trashing and mocking people and then whining.
05/12/2014 8:07AM
Yep, when the leftist troll boy insults and trashes people Scoot is ok with it.
Liberals are funny to observe. They are always angry and raging about something and threatening people. All one can do is laugh at them.
05/12/2014 8:15AM
Chill guys.
Scoot loves all this. He needs ratings and lots of posts on his blog to remain relevant. This is all a game. Scoot may play the self-righteous act at times, but he needs people engaged. He picks fights to stir up responses. It is all a show for entertainment. Never let a talk jock bother you. Have fun with it.
05/12/2014 8:48AM
Michael Sam
So many folks lining up to lie claiming they endorse homosexuality so others will think they are more righteous than someone else. People today are not comfortable in their own skin and feel they have to follow the mob. Sam made himself a joke by making a big show of his sexual preferences. He chose to focus on politics and sex rather than football and lacked the maturity to maintain some privacy. He wanted the circus and got it. If he can play, the Rams will keep him if not he should be cut like any other player. The media needs to fill time and pages. They know good people disagree about this so it makes for ratings.
05/12/2014 9:10AM
Libs dish out and then freak out.
Scoot, like most liberals, laugh it up when leftist comedians call people slüts, cünts, and whõres, racist blacks make slurs, and hip hop performers spew all manner of trash talk. They tell us to lighten up and roll with it is all entertainment. Personally, it is all nonsense directed at getting attention and ratings. However, the moment someone makes fun of a liberal all hell breaks loose and suddenly chilling out and rolling with the smack talk is out the window. Scoot is a fascist like his hero Obama. They are both very thin-skinned and likely have way too many mirrors in their houses.
05/12/2014 12:15PM
Great stuff!
The Scoot and his blog gang are entertaining!
05/12/2014 1:56PM
Entertainment
There is nothing entertaining about alleging someone is a pedophile. End of story. If you find it amusing, you're a sick person. Seek help.
05/12/2014 2:19PM
That stalker guy is back ... LOL

05/12/2014 2:21PM
Bet you did not know.
If you do not support Obama, you are not only a racist and hate homosexuals, puppies and baby seals, but you are against Democrats with toe fungus and nose hair issues finding a cure.
05/12/2014 2:22PM
Actually, the really sick people are leftists who support deviant sexual behavior
and abortion.
05/12/2014 2:47PM
Surpsiingly ObamaCare does not cover toe nail fugus creams and nose hair clippers.
Guess the Democrats missed on that one.
05/12/2014 2:53PM
SAM:“ I Should Have Been Drafted In First Three Rounds...”
Hey sambo stop whining and go play some football. Every seventh-rounder says that. If you are good, you will make a team and have a chance to make some good coin playing a game. Your crusade will not guarantee you success in the NFL. Life is not easy. Bethankful for an opportunity few get no matter who they are sleeping with.
05/12/2014 3:06PM
Looks like some listeners are not getting enough Saints Talk on WWL.
Time to expand the sports talk schedule and get rid of all this political foolishness.
05/12/2014 3:16PM
The nose hair line was great. HA!
Harry Reid has that problem and is really hard to look at on TV. Maybe he should wear a pink ribbon to supporting finding a cure. HA!
05/12/2014 3:49PM
The Campaign to Prevent Excessive Nose Hair Growth offers the following tips to Harry Reid.
How To Remove Nose Hair The Facts about Nose Hair and how to Eliminate the Pesky Problem Whilst some of the aesthetical changes men are faced with as they get older can actually enhance their appearance, making them look more distinguished and even sexier; thick, black strands of hair protruding from the nostrils are definitely not one of the more ‘desirable’ aging males attributes. Some men accept nose hair as another physical sign of their growing presence on the Earth, whilst many men strive to remove this unsightly telltale sign that they are getting older. Consequently there are several methods and many products available to eliminate pesky nose hair from obtruding into view. Why does Nose Hair grow as Men become Older? As men depart their twenties and start to creep up their thirties, they can often be shocked to find thick, black hairs that start to descend from the nostrils. As they get older the amount of nose hair visible gradually increases. The hair that grows from the nose and ears is controlled by hormones. Many experts assert that this unwelcome growth is linked to an increase in the hormone dihytestosterone (DHT), which is more prevalent in men than women, and is the hormone responsible for causing male pattern baldness. Although a man’s nose has always contained hair, it begins to grow more rapidly the more DHT is produced, which can be as much as 1cm a month. Dealing with this excessive growth can be a time consuming, tedious and a painful procedure. How Not to Remove Unwanted Nose Hair Often men panic at the first sign of whiskers projecting from their nose and ears and fumble around with inappropriate tools desperately trying to remove their new feline features. Avoid using scissors to trim nose hair at all costs, as it only takes a slight tremble of the hand to snip the skin and cause permanent tissue damage. If you do proceed with scissors, ensure they are sharp and the right size to yield successful results, whilst minimizing the chances of an accident. Tweezers should also be avoided as a method of nasal hair trimming. Whilst the ‘pluck one hair and two will grow back’ theory may be a myth, plucking hair from this delicate area will prove to be extremely painful. Plucking with tweezers may also cause small lesions to occur and can inflame the nasal cavities which can lead to infection. The most effective, easy and painless way to remove unwanted nose hair is to use electric nose hair trimmers.
05/12/2014 3:56PM
Great Topic.
Excessive nose hair growth has been linked to global warming and a rise in racism. It is great to see groups banning together to fight for a cure.
05/12/2014 4:02PM
Hopefully Scoot will take the lead on the issue of excessive nose hair growth.
Perhaps he could do an entire show and allow victims of this terrible disease to share their stories and maybe even have telethon to help raise money for a cure. It is hard to tell from Scoot’s online photo, but he may suffer from this as well and havehis own story to tell how he struggles with this daily. This issue has the potential to unite the entire country bring Democrats and Republicans together.
05/12/2014 4:26PM
AP-Los Angeles, CA ...BREAKING ...
Many on the political right are saying that excessive nose hair disease is really just a lifestyle choice, while those on the political left say they were born that way and it would be unnatural to do anything change. Pundits on both sides expect this issue to become more heated as the midterms approach. Some even suggest based on protests outside a recent Los Angeles fashion show, that this could become the next civil rights issue replacing the gay movement as the nation’s top concern. Many with the disease say people should be forced to accept their lifestyle choice and having a model with long nose hair would be an historic first.

Nose Hair
There's already a model for excessive body hair on the political right. Ann Coulter.

Reports have surfaced that he is wanted for soliciting sex on blogs and chat rooms.

CBS NEWS WASHINGTON, DC--
CBS News is reporting homosexual activist groups have planned a series of demonstrations around the country to protest the rise of support for Excessive Nose Hair Disease victims and their families in State Legislatures. One spokesperson said that homosexual youth are still more likely to be bullied than those with excessively long nose hairs. Concern is that more money will be allocated for nose hair research and sensitivity training programs than is currently allocated to homosexual groups and AIDS research. National Radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested on his daily show that the nose hair could simply be trimmed, but Senate majority lead Harry Reid fired back later that it was not that simple and Limbaugh’s remarks clearly showed he is a racist.

GALLUP—
Recent polling by the Gallup organization indicates that concerns over Excessive Nose Hair Disease is rising rapidly among listeners to the local WWL Radio show “Scoot” based out of New Orleans. After the host posted an unrelated blog on gun control that most found boring, a flurry of activity began on the blog as many in his audience express consternation over the issue of Excessive Nose Hair Disease by posting various articles and comments. Gallup reports that its polling suggests that New Orleans is at the center of the earthquake of concern and outpouring that is stretching all across the country over worries about Excessive Nose Hair Disease. Asked to comment on the issue Scoot said he used to trim his nose hair but now realizes that it is a disease and excessively long nose hairs should be accepted and believes it will be the next big civil rights issue facing the country.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell weighs in.
ESPN is reporting that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that while there were no players with Excessive Nose Hair Disease drafted last weekend, it is not an indication that the league is racist in any way. Some NFL insiders are saying, however, that many players in the league have privately indicated that they would not want to shower next to a player with the disease. The league office has not said whether they will issue fines to anyone who may make inappropriate comments about those with the condition.
05/12/2014 6:32PM
CNN NEWS WASHINGTON Bureau —
Jay Carney was asked at the Daily Briefing on Monday why President Obama has not addressed the issue of Excessive Nose Hair Disease, or used his bully pulpit to promote civil rights legislation to make it easier for those with the condition to get accessto employment opportunities. Carney responded that the President had played golf Sunday and was off to Vegas for a fundraiser.
