My heartfelt condolences go out to the grieving families and friends of the 49 gun violence victims who died in Orlando this past weekend. My wholehearted wishes that there can be a speedy recovery… to the fullest possible extent… for the 53 wounded in this attack.
I wish “our” legislative Republican “leaders” could actually feel the sorrow as I do.
Oh… sure… yesterday, in memory of the Orlando mass shooting victims, both Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell presided over their somber moments of silence.
But, as far as these two holey [sic] “men” were concerned (if “concerned” is even the operative word), that was that!
They neither could nor would go beyond that. These spineless, soulless, unconscionable creatures were just phoning it in. For them, there would be no wake up call moment. Neither would truly lead america [sic] to a better day where mass shootings / gun violence would begin to become a thing of the past.
NOPE… neither of these “men” said, “Hey everybody, let’s get down to the serious business of legislating some stronger gun control laws!”
To be sure here, these legislators mollycoddle gun nuts. It’s almost as if each and everyone of this boneheaded, knuckle-dragging mindset is actually counting on these mass murders occurring so frequently that we, as a society, will be brainwashed into blind acceptance of them… will shrug and say, “Oh well, that’s just the way it is.”
True, there were a few bold Democrats who did try to open their Republican opponents’ closed eyes / minds… open up a meaningful discussion to prevent future, Orlando-type carnage. Here’s what went down in the U.S. House following yesterday’s moment of silence.
Needless to say, House Speaker Ryan shot them down by gleefully banging his little wittle “toy” gavel. Let’s watch.
Of course, what else could We The People expect from these little wittle, childish righties? Indeed, in the wake of these ever-increasing with frequency shootings, they can only be relied on to provide lip service “religious” services.
