    “What stops a bad guy with a gun – is a good guy with a gun.”

    A reality check.

  3. A belated apology after a lot of damage had been done.

      And half hearted at best:

      “His actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologise,”

      He started it! I was just reacting! – pathetic. I’m cancelling my Tesla S order in protest…

      “A belated apology after a lot of damage had been done.”

      Mostly to Musk’s reputation and business. I have seen some comments where some believe the only reason he apologised was because Tesla shares dropped significantly in value after it was reported he said it. He also got quite a backlash on social media, I don’t think he got much – if any – support for his comments.

      I can see why you like him so much – he has the same qualification as Steven Joyce, who I know you also think highly of!

      “After graduating with a degree in zoology, Monbiot joined the BBC Natural History Unit as a radio producer”

      There is a man who probably never looks in the closet or under his bed for fear of what is lurking.
      The left (Soros in particular) fund all sorts of protests and movements. It happens, all sides do it and I’m not sure its half as sinister as made out to be (but using “Dark” makes it seem very scary doesn’t it?).
      I’m all for transparency and good on him for promoting it, but he is Hager like in his blinkered view on where responsibility lies.

          I wouldn’t go quite that far. And that’s not how I’d probably spell it,

          The Koch family as well for the Republicans, yes.
