Here's the video containing the "We should be ashamed" statement by the POTUS. ( Go to 38:50 into it)
Is anyone else insulted that he says " this society is not willing " to take basic steps to control guns. Is he fuckin kidding me? This society is overwhelmingly FOR basic steps. He also goes on to say that most congressmen are terrified of the NRA, the lobbying arm of the gun manufacturers. He basically admits MONEY runs the Congress, not the voting public. Even if we had 100% agreement among "this society " about background checks , nothing would change Mr. President because you told us the congress is afraid of the NRA and their money. You didn't say Congress was afraid of the voters. WTF? It's the same with Global Warming. It's the corportocracy running the country, which you plainly laid out before my ears .. We have no say. Our vote doesn't count. You just told me that. Thanks for at least letting the cat out of the bag. So please don't tell me it's democracy's job to change things. Then you say later on I shouldn't get cynical. You can't make this shit up.
