Wednesday Reads: Nothing ChangesPosted: January 16, 2013
Another day under the belt for 2013, and it seems like things are never going to change.
I caught a quick interview on CNN Tuesday, Dana Bash was interviewing some Congressman…I don’t remember who…but he was a Republican from Colorado. She asked him point-blank if he was going to do anything in his power to stop Obama from passing new gun control laws. Of course, he hedged and then said the usual.
(I just updated this post, I found the segment I was watching on CNN: CNN: Not Enough Support For New Gun Laws In Democratic-Controlled Senate
It was Cory Gardner, the GOP Rep from Colorado that Dana Bash was interviewing.)
At the same time this CNN interview was going on, I was engaged in a heated conversation with my husband over the government control of bullets. He was against it, flatly. His loyalty to the GOP is really something to see. After everything he has been through and all the personal miseries we have endured because of the Republicans’ ridiculous positions on everything that would help us, he still will agree with them.
Why be against controls on ammunition? If we must show our drivers license, have it recorded in a database to keep track of our purchases and even place our signature…swearing we are who we are….just to buy the over-the-counter cold medicine Sudafed, why not make folks do the same for bullets?
Well, the response I got was typical. It would be inconvenient, take too long, etc. WTF?
After that comment, and listening to some asshole from a state who has had more than their share of mass shootings give Dana Bash the typical GOP answer to any reasonable question about changing gun laws that do not follow the powerful gun lobby’s agenda, I lost it. I turned the TV off and have not looked at any of news since.
The reason I am going on about this is simple, PAD…political affective disorder strikes again.
So, if these links are repeats, I apologize.
Nothing ever changes.
Want more crazy?
I’ve got a headache, and two sick kids to deal with…this is an open thread.
