Maybe a Moment of Silence Will Fix Everything
President Barack Obama ordered flags over the White House to half-staff through Friday evening to mark the tragedy in D.C., which claimed the lives of 13, including the gunman. House Speaker John Boehner ordered flags over the Capitol to half-staff for the same period of time. (msnbc)
I don't care. Yesterday morning, instead of sitting in front of the television wringing my hands and praying for the victims of the latest mass murder, I watched a recording of a Chicago Bears game for three hours. I'm sure my time was spent much more beneficially than had I watched the news channels hysterical coverage. Yeah, some people died, so what? I know that sounds harsh, but we go through this every few months and nothing happens. Americans do not care how many of their fellow citizens are slaughtered just so long as they can cling to their guns. The gun nuts who run this country are like spoiled children who have bullied their parents into letting them continue with self destructive ways. And our president is a man with the balls of a chipmunk who allows himself to be controlled by the cowards in congress. By next week this latest insanity will be ignored and forgotten. Of course not forgotten by those affected, but by the news media, the president, and the congress who will have moved on to the next important vote against Obamacare.
