I am one to admit I am wrong (or mistaken), though Mrs. Pistachio will tell you I never admit when I am wrong (or mistaken).
Like how I'm throwing that "mistaken" into it?
A number of commenters have brought it to my attention that the photos I alleged as being taken by another party of that crazy gunman At Virginia Tech, Cho, may have been sliced and diced by the media so that they could be presentable. I felt that if the photos had been skewed and non-centered they would have published them that way to show more evidence of Cho being nuts or acting alone. It was just a theory, anyway. Sky Dive Rick reminded me that before I jump to conclusions I need to consider ALL of the possible variables, and the point is taken.
My dear Kris, out there in the United Kingdom, has brought it to my attention that I should welcome opposing opinions on my site as I once did before, and not make Political Pistachio an echo chamber of my views.
I respect Kris, and I am glad she has shown concern, especially since she has a few views that are not completely in-sync with mine, as does a few other people.
Mudkitty and Tom were not banned for having opposing views. They were banned for being disruptive. Rather than give a topic-laden comment filled with intelligence and thoughts to ponder, they design their comments to be disruptive, and I, for one, finally got sick of it. That being said, any comment laced with what I feel to be distastful or disruptive language, or seems to be written for the sole purpose to incite rather than add to the conversation or debate, will be deleted, no questions asked. I will not delete a comment for the sole reason of it disagreeing with me - but I will no longer tolerate trolls. I prefer not to have to talk about this again, so liberal trolls who are here for the pure reason to disrupt and incite, bug out of here.
Finally, Alec Baldwin has considered himself a political compass and beacon of tolerance. He likes to slam us with his socialistic views, and proudly proclaims himself as a socialist.
Alec has forgotten that the public has an eye on him, and oh did he mess up on this one.
He tore into his daughter on the phone (in a voice mail message) that bordered on abuse. I've yelled at my kids, but this was downright despicable.
Alec said: "Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone, you've made me feel like shit and you have insulted me for the last time...I'm going to straighten your ass out"
His daughter is 12 years old.
And as the message progresses, he goes on to call her a pig, among other things.
You've got to listen to the clip to believe it.
Listen to it here.

This rant and rave against his daughter will be discussed by Mrs. Pistachio (who is 2 months from receiving her Psychology Degree), along with a dissection of what happened at Virginia Tech, the U.K.'s decision to ban the term "War on Terror," and the ban on Partial Birth Abortions being upheld by The Supreme Court, on Political Pistachio Radio.
And ATLAS SHRUGS WILL BE MY POINT RADIO'S GUEST after the end of my show. You can't miss it!
