As you might have noticed, I’ve been taking a break from “Gregorian Rants” due to a recent personal tragedy, and that troublesome thing called “the real world” that interferes with my life on teh interwebz.
The following post “The Slaughter of the Innocents, The Second Amendment, & Political Humbuggery” was something I wrote back around Christmas, shortly after the horrific Newtown school shootings, but didn’t get around to finishing and publishing. However, as the surrounding “gun control” debate is still very much a hot topic, and with Dear Leader making his “recommendations” to Congress (including a push for the so-called “assault weapon” ban) and upcoming “executive orders” regarding guns, I decided to go ahead and put it up on teh webz.
Interestingly, I heard on the radio a few days ago that Dear Leader Obama’s approval ratings are the highest since when he was first elected president in ’08. This in the face of continuing dismal economic reports, and tax increases hitting everyone’s paychecks (but, hey he saved us from going over that horrible fiscal cliff, remember?).
But, no worries. Like a godsend, our Dear Leader was granted a horrific mass-murder/suicide. I dare say, he was positively dancing with delight at the news of this golden opportunity. All he (and other like-minded politicians) need to do is announce salvation to the people in the the form of opposing constitutionally-guaranteed rights of citizens (oops, sorry, I meant “gun violence”), and then bask in the adoration of the media zombies who will adore his every move. See, if you oppose any of Dear Leader’s designs, you are an evil fiend who favors gun violence and shooting up little schoolkids. Brilliant.
Never mind that the presidential proposals range from completely useless government busybodiness at best to unconstitutional tyranny at worst. No, all that matters is that Good Government is “Doing Something,” and once again, we are Saved. Alleluia!
