Our presidental cartoon figure is on tv right now, carefully reading his teleprompter. What he's saying goes in one ear and out the other - it sounds like it's being read on the "moron" setting of google voice - I hear the word "fantastic" during this statement and I'm not at all surprised. just further saddened that this is what speaks for america.
God bless them all. God bless you. God bless America. jeeze louise, he sounds sedated.
What happened out there?
First it was the congressional baseball team, and they practice every morning. Very nice all that comradery.
My first thought is how many people have jobs they don't perform, yet get to play team sports on the company dime (when they're not working out in their government provided gym), rah rah rah...this while the people they're supposed to be working for, get to worry about whether they'll continue to be able to afford their diabetes meds or their kid can see a doctor for a routine exam because these privileged shits want to take it away and give tax breaks to the wealthy.
They are not living the same lives as everyone else. They might as well be living on a desert island. Actually, they are. And now they're shocked. SHOCKED!! the great unwashed have come into their little secure enclave and started shooting at them. welcome to the america you helped to create.
While I don't at all condone violence, how can it not finally trickle over in their direction? is it possible they believe the same insanity that killed 20 - TWENTY 5 year olds sitting in their classrooms won't come for them? And now this cadre of elites are clamoring for more security for themselves, but dollars to donuts will continue to refuse to even consider rational gun laws that prevent mentally ill individuals from buying firearms. And lets not even think about automatic weapons and why we need them in the hands of everyone if that's what they want to play with. this is america! we shoot for fun! if someone dies, they should have learned to duck faster, goddamnit. it's our right!
oh hell....what difference does it make? the worms are all out of the can. there are more guns in circulation than anyone can count anymore.
watching the news before I stop, and there's all this WE STAND TOGETHER BULLSHIT. I'm wondering what we stand for.
christ, we do love the hyperbole don't we.
oh fuck. the shooter was a bernie volunteer. I WAS PRAYING THAT WOULDN'T BE THE CASE - that he wasn't associated with any mainstream political group. shit shit shit
