Of Dancing On the Bodies & Crocodile Tears
Unless you've been hiding under a rock or lay comatose in a hospital somewhere the last few days, you've probably heard of the recent incident in Connecticut. Needless to say, the media & politicians have been making a LOT of political hay of it. Even "our" president has shed some tears of dubious authenticity.
On Fox News late Sunday, just before the start of a televised memorial service (Wherin the "annointed one" campaigned about "doing something".) the elitist Charles Krauthammer opined about this being a "watershed" on the Second Ammendment. He went on further to say that this also affected the First & Fifth ammendments as well & that any "measures" would impinge upon them. Then he said that maybe Americans might be willing to "this time" accept such impingements.
In the words of Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Interesting how that "damn piece of paper" (The Constitution.) can be such a pain in the posterior to those with "a vision for tomorrow".
So ... Write, e-mail, fax, PHONE your representative & Senators in Congress. Tell them in no uncertain terms to vote AGAINST not only any & all gun control legislation but also AGAINST any & all legislation concerning censoring/curtailment of media, the written word, games, internet, etc. The rights & property you save may be your own.
|I know what I'd pick ...|
"In other news" Senators Mark Warner & Joe Manchin (Both Demicans) have "broken ranks" with pro-gun senators & have called for "bans" on "assault weapons". One can only imagine what it was that caused them to sell out their respective constituencies. As it is the nature of the politician/parasite to feed at the public trough as long as possible, I doubt their betrayals were due to any rosey rhetoric or fits of compassion & more in the line of gaining "political capitol" of some kind. They profit at your expense.
Virginia voters should note that Mr. Warner is up for re-election in 2014 (Hint! Hint!).
