NOW watch the gun-lobby…

…propaganda machine shift into high gear!

President Obama’s speech at the Newtown vigil was very, very good. One might even declare it to be great.

But what will come of it?

Will there be action on gun control in the States? Real action? Like banning assault weapons so they do not fall into the hands of whack jobs?

Yes, I am well aware that this is a complex issue – especially for Americans and their so-called “gun culture”. And the talk over the past few days about the need for better mental health care is all good and true. However, it is time to change this “culture”.

Don’t be distracted, my American friends, because surely the NRA and other cold and faceless organisations will try their best to keep you from thinking that guns aren’t the problem. They ARE the problem. The gun lobby doesn’t care about your children and their safety. All that concerns them are their balance sheets while they cowardly hide behind their claims of Second Amendment “rights”.

Neither Rush Limbaugh nor his vile and disgusting Tea Party compatriots care about your kids. Not one iota.

The shooter in Newtown might have still gone on that senseless rampage. Yet, if there were stricter controls on the possession of firearms, he may have been armed only with a hunting rifle or a shotgun. Yes, their may still have been deaths, but not so many. Lives would have been spared. It is certain.

So email and call your Senator, your Congressperson, Councillor, Alderman, Mayor, Governor! Contact anyone who has any measure of influence in your part of the country and DEMAND that they support your President’s call for “some to be done”.  Because if things stay as they are, there may sadly be more Newtowns and Auroras.

 

Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm?

Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know they are loved and teaching them to love in return?

Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?

I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer’s no. We’re not doing enough. And we will have to change. Since I’ve been president, this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by mass shootings, fourth time we’ve hugged survivors, the fourth time we’ve consoled the families of victims.

And in between, there have been an endless series of deadly shootings across the country, almost daily reports of victims, many of them children, in small towns and in big cities all across America, victims whose — much of the time their only fault was being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change.

Great news to end the year with!

Rush Limbaugh is in the hospital after suffering chest pains!

Woo-hoo! The world would be far better off with fewer morons like Limbaugh!

In dishonour of this nincompoop, and in the hope that this is serious enough to take him off the air, uh, permanently, here are some quotes that exemplify his ignorance:

“Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.”

“The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.”

“The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”

“There are more acres of forestland in America today than when Columbus discovered the continent in 1492.”

At least we don’t have Limbaugh…

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

I made my periodic trek over to Foxnews.com to get my chuckle for the day.  I, of course like other sane individuals, don’t take one iota of what is spouted over there as anything but drivel. And today is no exception.

This time they are giving much column space to the sometimes incomprehensible, often staggeringly stupid and always a troglodyte, Rush Limbaugh.

troglodyteThis time he is again ranting about President Obama and how he is closely related to demons, trolls and socialists.

President Obama is pursuing a “radical” agenda that is putting the economy and national security in peril, talk show host Rush Limbaugh told “Fox News Sunday,” giving the young president failing grades across the board and standing by his sustained criticism of the administration.

Radical? Really? Here is Canada, the President’s proposals would be clearly to the right of the political spectrum. But, in the bastion of christian conservatism to the south, “radical” implies something very different.

In a wide-ranging interview, he called Obama a “child” driven by his “out-of-this-world ego.”

And he predicted that Obama, who built a broad-based majority over Republican candidate John McCain a year ago, would not win a second term.

“I’m really, really worried. We’ve never seen this kind of radical leadership at such a high level of power in the country,” Limbaugh said. “I don’t think we’re better off in any way it could be measured.”

There he goes with this radical thing again! Really, Rush-baby, you should do a bit of research to see that America is radical only in your mind! And if your country is at all “radical” as you say, it is of the conservative, theological bent! Not like we in Canada or the Swedes or some other godless socialist state, but more like Iran. Or maybe Saudi Arabia. The America of the 21st century certainly is far more similar to those latter countries than to the former.

All Mr. Obama is trying to do is fix what’s broken. For example, your economy or health care system.

But hey, Rush is paid to be an entertainer, and he’s entertaining, right? The problem with his style of entertainment is that someone might actually take the big galoot seriously!

I might criticise our own media sometimes – The National Post comes to mind.  But at least we haven’t any equivalent to the esteemed Mr. Limbaugh. Or if there is, I’m unaware of it.
