It was the week before Christmas 2012 and all through this blog are pictures and posts about death, dying, guns, funerals, and children. Sigh
It was the week before Christmas 2012 and NRA shooter in chief Wayne La Pierre basically said: Hey America, you can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead, hands. Guns don't kill people, politicians, the media, movies, music videos, and violent video games, kill people.
It was the week before Christmas 2012 when the call for sensible gun control legislation created an economic stimulus for gun/ammo sellers, where white men (and some white women) everywhere clung to their guns in case the African American President gets uppity and will try and disarm them of their weapons of mass destruction. Call me crazy, but the last time white folks started arming themselves and screaming about daring to defend their rights we had this little thingy called The Civil War.
It was the week before Christmas 2012 when conservative republican congress critter, turned TeeVee Talking Pundit Head, Joe Scarborough ripped tea-party backed Tim Huelskamp (R.KS) a new one for saying mass shootings with assault weapons is a people problem.
It was the week before Christmas2012 when those on the right accused those on the left of hating the 2nd Amendment, with calls for arming school teachers, principals, and office staff. Mind you, these are the same public school teachers etc. they consider to be an enemy of the state under *ahem* normal circumstances.
It was the week before Christmas 2012 when the republican party finally drove the clown car over the cliff, proving they hate President Obama and democrats more than they love our country.
We need a new governing coalition in the House - Democrats and those few sane Republicans willing to put country before ideology.I believe even the impossible is possible when we all work together for what is right. Wishing all of you Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love during the holiday season and beyond. ~ RedEye
