Listening to an interview by ex Gov. Howard Dean, re. gun violence,I was struck by his comment that he trusts "sensible Americans" to do the right thing.
I should like readers to consider the following.
1) The New Deity in America? The Gun is GOD .Human life,matters ,not so much.
2)The legislators in Washington are,with few exceptions are oneof the most corrupt in the world.
they genuflect to K street,the NRA,and Grover Norquist and MONEY,before considering the needs of the country and their constituants.
3)There is NO real healthcare, millions have no access. ( Should have taken advice from Western Europe ,but big pharma and "health care providers" said no.
4)Many legislators are totally out of their depth,intelectually,yet sit on powerfull committees.
5) Scientific facts are denied by idiots.
6) The needs of the environment are ignored,
7)Pollution,fracking and drilling are destroying the environment,killing indigenous wildlife is rife.
8) The population is being marginalized.the haves and have nots.
9) Womenare considered second class citizens, losing the right of self determination.
10)Sany Hook,Aurora Columbine. etc. Too bad . Cannot get enough votes to curb violence.
The Amercan people still vote for these people?!
May I present THE OXYMORON of 2013.
" SENSIBLE AMERICANS."
