It’s always difficult to pen a column in the wake of a nightmare like the Boston Marathon attack. I could rhetorically bellow at the top of my lungs. But any shrieking I might do would be wasted. The victims have bigger worries. The perpetrators either don’t care or enjoy the effect. And life would go on.
I know we’re all very upset about what’s happening in Washington. For many people, last week’s Senate vote was extremely upsetting. Sadly, though, we need to accept facts. The Federal government is filled with sociopathic criminals. But we can beat them. And we will.
If you own gold and silver, don’t panic over the recent price pullback. The “experts” now telling you to dump your gold and silver are the same “experts” who said things were rosy just before the fall 2008 crash. If you’re smart, you’ll do just the opposite of what those “experts” tell you to do.
The “low-information” set (loafers) present outrageous statements about guns as irrefutable facts. Of course, not one of them is true; but damn it, you gun zealots, we’re talking about children’s lives! Besides, liberals have no compunction about fudging the facts when it comes to politics.
Despite Federal court rulings to the contrary, local LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) continue to assault and falsely arrest people who attempt to record their interactions with police. It happened again Saturday in San Diego.
The scene is a secluded alleyway in a large American city. The characters are a gangbanger and a black-marketeer. The plot revolves around an illegal firearms purchase. The gun grabbers have made it difficult, if not impossible, for law-abiding citizens to buy guns; but that doesn’t stop the criminals.
The Department of Homeland Security is becoming exceedingly fearful of Christians who believe the Bible is God’s word, Christian “fundamentalists” (whatever those are), Americans who believe the country was founded on Godly principles and those who believe the Constitution stands as the law of the land.
To the best of my recollection, sometime in the 1990s, the corporate media welded “gun” to “violence,” creating a rhetorical Frankenstein’s monster. With the exception of former Attorney General Janet Reno’s occasional combat operations against her fellow citizens, anytime a firearm featured into a crime, “gun violence” was blamed.
A British 9/11 truther is claiming victory following a court ruling that said he did not have to pay a fine over his refusal to pay his annual £130 TV license fee. Tony Rooke claimed the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11 attacks.
The United States is not a country whose leaders appear to put great value in the idea of winning the hearts and minds of the citizens of geopolitical foes. But the unintended consequences of American imperialist behavior in the Mideast have very human impacts.
