If memory serves me correctly did not President Obama at a fundraiser in Philadelphia state “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”…
We do not yet have all the answers. What we do know is that such a senseless and terrible act of violence has no place in a free society. I ask all Americans to join me and Michelle in keeping Representative Giffords, the victims of this tragedy, and their families in our prayers.”‘
Ummm…lets see…Ya might wanna keep our poor nation in that prayer also.
Is it the Media?
Is it the Vets?
Is it the “Tea Party?”
Is it the Un-employed?
Is it a nut-ball?
In my humble opion the problem has many sides..
We don’t burn our books..
We re-write them
If Congress lies to you..Its “Politics.”
If you lie to Congress its a Felony.
We have no problem securing the 38th parallel..
But we can’t close the border with Mexico.
If you protest O’Bama’s policies..
You’re a terriorist.
If you burn the flag or George Bush in effigy
Its you’re first ammendment rights.
We can speak of “alternative lifesyles” in our classrooms
But you had better not mention God.
We can give 850 billion dollars to Banks Insurance Companies
and reward their bad behavior…
But we can’t extend un-employment benifits to average Americans.
We can remember our fallen heros on Veterans Day..
But we’re not sure where they are buried.
The hypocracy and dissconnect that exist in today’s Congress is un-believable. In the middle of all of this is an “Astounded”, “Shocked” Politician(s) and News Media…when all along BOTH sides have been adding gasoline to the bon fire of lies, hatred, bigotry, and dis-content.
So was it a Nut-ball?……yep.
Did it suprise me?….no.
Did the political rhetoric cause this?
It sure did’nt help.
Will this happen in the future?
Who knows…therein lies the problem..
God help our poor nation

Truer words were never printed, shayne. You nailed it with this statement:
“If you’re a closed minded right winger and have somehow come across this piece you’ll denounce it without thought.”
The 2 comments before mine verify the statement.
A person would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to not see that the right has been on a campaign to destroy President Obama since before he was sworn into office and has shown their approval of “Second Amendment”solutions to political differences. I have yet to attend a democratic-sponsored event over the last 3 years and seen one democrat at the event with a gun strapped to his/her hip, and I have yet to hear one democratic politician mention using guns to solve a political problem .
They take one statement the president borrows from a movie and pretend that he was encouraging members on the left to commit acts of violence. As usual, many on the right are spinning and lying, and spinning and lying. They’re doing everything except accepting some of that personal responsibility that they tell the rest of us we need to take. Pitiful
