That is the standard?
20 dead children and people like Joe Scarborough change their minds?
So where were you when 20 children were killed in Afghanistan?
Where were you when 20 children were killed in Iraq?
Where were you when 20 children were killed due to global warming?
The thing about this that absolutely infuriates me and has all my life, is that forward-thinking is punished in this country.
They talk so much about protection, but nothing about prevention. The person who seeks forgiveness for supporting a situation that leads to the death of 20 children is respected, but the person who seeks legislation to prevent this exact situation is reviled as being Communist, Socialist, Anti-American, and someone who is trying to take away our "Freedumbz."
It is time for the reactionary grip on our society to end. The gerrymandered, unrepresentative of the public House of Representatives must come to an end. The Senate filibuster must be reformed. The right-leaning government of this country needs to be brought into alignment with its center-left population.
I guess all it takes is 20 dead children.
Well, at least we have standards.
