Starbucks has asked customers not to bring guns into their stores. They’re wrong.
President Obama has asked Congress to have a meaningful debate on gun control. He’s wrong.
We don’t care, whether it’s affordable or costly. In the case of another massacre, this time at a Navy Yard, it’s beyond costly. But we don’t care. So let’s stop pretending.
Speaking of pretending…
Of course CNN hired Newt Gingrich. Of course Newt Gingrich linked the gun debate to the mental health debate. Of course the mental health debate is linked to “government run amok.”
Is there anything more amok than a Speaker of the House who’s engaging in a sexual dalliance going after the President of the United States of America for doing the same damn thing?
This is CNN’s recipe for meaningful debate: Amok mixed with Hypocrisy and a dash of Hubris. Media bigwigs calls it Crossfire. I call it Hogwash.
If I want to ache that bad, I’ll post a personal ad on Craig’s List:
Man Seeking Woman With Chlamydia To Have 42 Meaningless Encounters In The Bathroom Stalls Of Congress.
Arm schoolchildren. Arm popcorn concession stand workers. Arm baristas. Most of all, arm guests in the greenrooms of CNN.
MENTALLY ILL IS THE NEW NORMAL.
Calling shooters mentally ill is redundant. Anyone who’d pick-up a gun is sick in the head. Preventing violent criminals from getting their hands on a gun is futile. Anyone who’d pick-up a gun is an aspiring homicidal maniac. Reasoning with Newt Gingrich is asinine.
No further clarification is required for asinine.
