You know what I can't stand? Hypocrisy. You want to protect family values by making gay marriage illegal? Fine, we can have a discussion about that, but I better not catch you in a diaper with a prostitute.

Do you really think that the best way to keep kids safe is to allow guns in schools? That's fine, we can debate about that. But you have to walk the talk and allow guns near politicians. In the U.S. Capitol Building, every visitor is required to go through a metal detectors, and guns are not allowed. What's the matter? I bet Louis Gohmert cant wait to have a shootout with a bad guy and prove how badass he is. He wants teachers to do that in schools, but he doesn't have the balls to do it himself?

 You Republican politicians won't hold yourself to the same standard that you hold America's teachers and children. How pathetic is that? If every kid deserves a body guard, since Obama's kids have them, doesn't that mean every kid deserves the same restrictions on guns that you politicians have? Are you telling me that your lives are more important than our children?

What about allowing guns to the RNC?

QUESTION: Rep. Bob Goodlatte, why didn’t the RNC allow concealed weapons into their nominating convention in Tampa? Didn’t that limit Freedom?

GOODLATTE: I don’t know the answer to that question. It may have to do with the Secret Service. As you know, all of those candidates for President of the United States have Secret Service protection. And once you are inside, they want to provide protection to these folks and when you go to presidential rally, you probably are not allowed to carry a weapon into those or an event attended by the President or Vice President or other people protected under that law.

Wait, the NRA just used that EXACT argument to show Obama's hypocrisy, for some reason Republican politicians are allowed to use it? When will the NRA come out in condemnation of Goodlatte?

Don't tell me that refusing to restricting gun use is un-American, and then proceed to restrict gun use! That makes you un-American by your OWN definition.

And don't even get me started on how Republican politicians get paid large salaries on the tax payer's dime to do nothing, while teachers get paid much less, and would get fired if they had the same lazy attitude.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
