This is just fucking nuts

Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingswood, W.V. advertises a "community BBQ and firearm fundraiser" on its website at a cost of $20 per ticket. All proceeds go to benefit the "PMH Foundation Building for a Healthy Future Capital Campaign," the ad reads.
Doesn't their ER have enough patients already?

As President Obama said

President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that his biggest frustration so far is society's unwillingness "to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage."

"We're the only developed country on the earth where this happens," he said.

"Right now, it's not even possible to get even the mildest restrictions through Congress, and we should be ashamed of that."

Reason has gone out of the fucking window.

Then when Churches and Hospitals raffle guns

We are embracing madness.

Embarrassed is too mild a word.

I'm truly appalled.

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.
