The honest answer to that question is to press on with our lives, as the victims and heroes would be doing if the event had not occurred. But the question is superfluous, propounded for partisan political purposes. Its purpose is to lay the groundwork for renewed attacks upon the first and second amendments.
The mainstream of the 'national conversation' flows from the mouths of politicians & pundits, falsely laying blame for the massacre at the tongues of those who oppose President Obama's Socialist agenda. Despite the mounting evidence that the shooter has used drugs, aroused fear among his classmates & teachers and was mentally ill, President Obama's chorus assigns blame to Palin & Limbaugh, who had nothing to do with the event.
- 'If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun"
- 'We're gonna punish our enemies'.
- "Bitter clingers"
Rush Limbaugh had an excellent rant about the hypocrisy of the left's demand for 'civility'.
Ever so subtle yet so obvious! President Obama hinted at a renewed demand to disarm the citizenry, rendering us defenseless. Does anyone else remember the old comic strip "There Oughta Be a Law?
Perish the thought! That is exactly what they have done, shrill & loudly, starting with Krugman.
That is sheer hypocrisy, so obvious as to require no elaboration.
What was it Nancy Pelosi promised us about four years back? What did she deliver? Open, honest, accountable & efficient government. Yeah, right. And Obama promised hope & change. How well is that working out for you? "You can keep your doctor." "You can keep your insurance policy." "It won't raise the deficit." "No death panels." Honest & civil! I really need to use profanity at this point. Those are not white lies, they are not little brown lies; they are the stuff that makes your shoe stink even after you scrape it off the sole.
President Obama and his cronies seek to exploit a mass murder at once to condemn and silence his critics. There is nothing so low that they will not limbo dance beneath it. What appears to be a limbo dance is really a slithering sidewinder. We made a horrific blunder in '08. We have a opportunity to correct it in '12. We must take full advantage of that chance.
Even coming from an honest statesman, those statements would be inappropriate at a memorial service for murder victims. They are the stuff of a campaign speech, not a memorial. As it is, they come from the mouth of a lying, conniving traitor, and the hypocrisy disgusts me intensely.
