During a recent show in Singapore during Megadeth's "Th1rt3en World Tour," Mustaine took to the mic from the stage to discuss his beliefs about some of the recent gun violence in America.

"Back in my country, my president," Mustaine begins and then pretends to gag himself with his finger, "is trying to pass a gun ban so he's staging all of these murders. The 'Fast and Furious' thing down at the border. And Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now, the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."

Mustaine went on to say, "I don't know where I'm going to live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."

Those celebs should keep thier mouths shut if they know what's best for them. seriously... all it does is **** off your fans. They are too busy performing to really have properly read up on what they talk about. Same with justin beiber and the rape thing....

Another reason I love trance/hands-up producers/djs... they stay out of saying stupid crap like this and very little is known about them. you focus on thier music and not thier BS. ^_^

I may not like Obama (and that's putting it lightly), but not enough to where I'd believe this. This has got to be the most pathetic thing I've heard in a while.

I guess it's just fair play to blame Obama for this since Bush got blamed for so much including 9/11.

i'd believe it when it came down to fast and furious. The other ones not so much. But yeah, let's blame obama since this sort of thing was always blamed on bush, while we're at it Obama is just as responsible for the drought as Bush was for Katrina.

No. Just no. Of course Bush isn't responsible for the storm, but he is responsible for the terrible disaster response.

Nobody expects the president to do a rain dance to start or stop the rain... but there is an expectation that Americans won't be abandoned on their roofs for days, and that we should put at least as much effort into rebuilding our cities as we have rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan.

Maybe you would be more sensitive about this subject if you actually knew people who died in that storm... any one of the nearly 2000, or any one of the countless who suffered from PTSD afterward.

do you really think that the president is intimately involved in FEMA opperations? Hurricanes happen every year. Why should that one have been any different? It was also the govenor who really dragged his heels in declaring a state of emergency so that federal aid could come in the first place. Dems just liked blaming bush for every thing.

Well if Katrina is any indication... that was Bush.... under Obama, we're ALL boned. (as is the case of FEMA)

Biden: has a 3 letter word: J.O.B.S.

Biden:You mean we got to spend money to keep from going bankrupt? Ya- yes, that's what I'm telling ya.

go on Dems keep the fool! lol

Mustaine is notorius for not shutting his mouth when appropiate.

When asked if he supports gay marriage, he said, "Well, since I'm not gay, the answer to that would be no."

I go to concerts to see bands play music. Not to hear a self-important frontman with more issues than a qualified lunatic spout whatever nonsense came into his head when he was last high. I'm looking at Dave Mustaine, Axl Rose and Bono specifically!

It's a celebrity syndrome: they think because people listen to them that we all want to hear their opinions on every thing in life.

My opinnion is Regan in 1983 had Mustain expelled from Metallica to start this band to someday spread rumors and lies about democrats to keep republicans in power... there I said it, now its been established it must be true

Like all Federal agencies, the head of FEMA answers to the President. As a result, the President does have the ability to directly involve himself into FEMA operations when the disaster warrants it. Does the President need to be involved with every little flood and wind storm that FEMA has to deal with? No, but something like Katrina should have warranted his direct involvement. Having the President directly and deeply involved could speed up a lot of governmental delay as he can order many federal agencies at once and/or demand immediate action from Congress. At the very least the direct involvement of the office would comfort those who are largely suffering through a disaster of that magnitude.

why would you want the president directly involved in FEMA operations of a big disaster.

is the president a trained disaster specialist with the best expertise in how to handle that instead of the head of FEMA who should be hired and trained for this...

seriously... The presidents role is to stay out of the way of people who know what they're doing and let them do their thing and make sure that agencies are actually run by people who know what they're doing. even if sometimes they're not allowed to replace these people.
