GUN CONTROL or POLITICAL DONATIONS?
It amazes me how the President, Congress and the Washington D.C. valley of Consultants and Hacks believe that all American voters are stupid. Watching the Progressives with money and the Hollywood leaches manipulate Obama and the Senate is like watching Howdy Dowdy Time.
Our Royal President Stages Hollywood type events using children as dupes to further divide our people. He knows that his Gun Control proposals will never be approved by his own Progressives in the Senate. If they awarded an Oscar for the “Best Liar in a Political Address”, Obama would make Clinton look like a Hillbilly from Arkansas.
I realize that my window of opportunity to watch politics is somewhat broader than most. I started to school in 1936 when things were really bad in America. We could pray and we were proud to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school. We never had police or guards in the schools. We did not have or need the ACLU to create chaos at the schools. We did not have television to provide programs that had to be rated for viewing. We had radio and the library to assist the teachers in educating us with decent language. We had commentators which actually presented “ALL” of the news “Fair and Balanced”.
We had guns long before we had “R” Rated movies, age limit ratings and sexually explicit commercials on television. I raised my family before the violent Video games arrived. The violence I remember from my childhood was watching Buster Crabbe and Tom Mix eliminate the bad guys in the movies. My first memory of R rated movies was in my thirties.
I never heard of a school shooting until the event in Colorado shocked the nation just a few years ago. We have had guns long before our forefathers approved the Second Amendment to our Constitution. We had decent language on the radio, TV and the movies for most of the time this country has existed and we still have the same rights of free speech that appeared in the 1700’s.
We used to have a Congress that functioned and protected states and people’s rights. Now their only job is passing out freebies to get re-elected. In 1942 all Americans rallied together with the phrase, “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition”. Today all we hear from all politicians is, “Forget the Lord and Pass out more Pork”.
What we have created to make this a better place to live is organizations like the ACLU, ACORN and a Supreme Court that can’t agree on what the same words in our Constitution and Bill of Rights mean. If it is politically incorrect it must be bad. Politics and Money run the world, to hell with the Constitution scream the activists. Even our President says it is outdated.
Now the prime objective of the President and the Senate is “Gun Control” and “Immigration Issues”. After spending four years stuffing Obamacare down our throats they continue to ignore the real problems in America. They now intend to make legal gun ownership illegal. At the same time they intend to make illegal immigrations legal. I really wonder if anyone in Washington will ever face the fact that no “JOBS” was the problem when Obama was elected and it appears now that nothing is planned to address this until 2016.
Just think of the progress we have made in my lifetime. Kids can’t pray in school anymore. You are weird if you are patriotic. You are a threat if you own a gun. We have full police departments in our schools. Talk of arming teachers is being conducted. Politicians will not send their kids to public schools. Your doctor will soon be required to ask you if you own a gun when you get your annual finger wave. WOW we really have progressed haven’t we?
Our President has asked us to be civil, yet he has increased gun ownership during his first four years to over double the number of guns possessed before he was elected to save us from George Bush.
By the way, he has not asked the entertainment industry to stop making violent movies and TV programs that actually teach children how to use guns to actually kill people. It’s funny, I have never seen a commercial or program from the National Rifle Association that shows kids how to kill people but they are being made the enemy, why?
For real gun violence watch your kid’s video games that really show them how to kill with guns, knives, cars and even baseball bats. They rate their performance and encourage them to improve their kill rate scores.
Why were these industries ignored if we really desire to stop violence, “POLITICAL DONATIONS”? Progressives do not get money from the NRA, so trash guns and ignore violence training.
That’s the Obama/Biden/Reed and Polosi way.
I would be remiss if I did not re-state a previous comment about gun control. To the NRA and the Congressional republicans, “Weapons of war are not required to hunt or protect your family.” After analyzing Obama’s speech that caused another panic to buy guns and ammunition, I need to add another word to my quote above. Remove the period and add “, yet”. behind the word family above.
It is hard living in a democracy Clyde. Sometimes the decisions are not what you would prefer. However right or wrong the people did return him to power. I still believe in your democracy and, as I said to Ron four years ago, the pendulum will swing and the party of your preference will come back. It may be messy but your democracy is still the beacon for hope in this world of ours.
