Maybe in a thousand years or so Americans will finally figure out that having a lot of guns laying around is bound to increase the probability that someone will be shot. Seems rather obvious when you think about it doesn’t it? When there is a lot of jellyfish in the ocean you likely will get stung if you go in the water. If there’s poison ivy all over the place outside you might very well step in it. The more there is of it around the greater the chance of contact. Wasps flying everywhere increases the possibility of getting stung; you get the picture now don’t you? Why are there so many people in denial of such an obvious logical conclusion? It’s hard to believe that people are just that stupid!
Speaking of nuts we need to heal our relationship with Iran while the door is opening. Never mind that they aren’t all clones of us. Forget the xenophobia you learned from the haters. The majority of Iranian people like the same things that we do: Video games, fast cars, rock & roll and movies with a little bit of hooch on the side. Their new president, Hasan Rouhani seems to be willing to negotiate and talk in a level headed manner we have not seen for many years. Let’s hear him out! Soon he will be addressing the United Nations and we need to listen carefully. Have you ever seen a pistachio nut from Iran!? They are as big as your thumb! Nowhere in the world are they as large and tasty. We need to lift trade sanctions and restore these bombs of nutrition to our tables as soon as possible!
Which brings us to the same old bombastic bologna happening in Congress. Once again the Republican stooges are threatening to shut down the government and not pay America’s debts if the Affordable Health Care act gets any funding in the new budget. Rush Limbaugh is calling for a “complete repeal and to start from scratch”. How about instead of that we have a complete repeal of Congress and start from scratch! The American people are overdue for leaders that will represent them and not the insurance companies, multinational corporations (big oil) and Wall Street bankers. The tea baggers have quickly outworn their welcome and proven that they are nothing more than corporate shills. It’s time we put the needs of the many above those of the privileged few.

Stupidity is ignoring the obvious. First the Constitution says we the people have a right to bear arms. I agree there’s no need for big artillery guns but most gun owning law abiding people don’t have those. We do however have the right to own guns. Thankfully so!! my family would be on food stamps if we couldnt fend for ourselves and hunt for our meat. Try feeding a family of five on a teachers salary! Meat is expensive!!! Second, who is going to take the guns from all the gangs and crackheads?? They don’t get them legally so there’s no paper trail as to who has them. I’m pretty sure they are not going to stand in the street with a billboard saying, “Hey mister Po-Po! I’m turning my guns over to you like you asked because I want to obey the law now.” Seriously!!! Are your glasses really that rose colored? Guns are not the problem! It’s the government who refuses to allocate more money to fund police departments in order to hire more officers to make our streets safer. Instead lets go feed some foreign nation. Our country, the people, has to fend for itself and look where that’s gotten us! Going to hell in a hand basket! Our entire government is misguided starting at the top of command! You preach this wonderful sermon about healthcare but even the government knows its shitty so they exclude themselves from it! Take off the rose colored glasses sir!
You seemed to have missed the point entirely. Guns for legitimate hunting are fine. As far as public assistance is concerned there is plenty of money to go around if it doesn’t go to waste on wars. Healthcare has glitches of course and a single payer system will eventually be the way to go. Baby steps are necessary.
