I suppose you have to have buzz words and jingles if you want to turn out the masses for your demonstrations. I’ll confess I’m a bit ambivalent about the anti-assault weapon frenzy and don’t believe for a minute any lives will be saved by taking them out of the hands of civilians. I wouldn’t lift a finger to support an issue I consider a meaningless gesture.
But on the other hand, it’s an inconvenient fact the same folks who rally for the 2nd Amendment and want to wave their assault rifles around also want to rape Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. And these youngsters in the streets waving signs wouldn’t lift a finger to keep them from doing it.
So what a lucky coincidence! The flood that’s going to sweep away assault rifles [I couldn’t care less about] will carry with it the people who want to rob senior citizens of their livelihood, health care, and keep them from having to live under bridges [which the anti-gun youngsters couldn’t care less about].
Just imagine it! 800 places all over the US, thousands of people in the streets inadvertently working to throw the people out of national elected office in 2018 and 2020 who want to destroy Social Security, Medicare and Medicade.
Well friends, I might just have to get me a sign and join them.
If I had to take away every assault rifle in the US to save my SS pension and Medicare, I’d be out there carrying signs pretending to believe that confiscating every assault rifle in existence would stop those school shootings.
Nobody ever demanded the two issues had to ride in the same boat, but once it happened I favor torpedoes to sink the ship and making sure any lifeboats carrying them don’t reach a safe harbor. They haven’t left any room in the equation to call themselves a loyal opposition. They are the enemy who happens to like guns and hate letting old people have a means to live.
You can have my Social Security check when you pry it from my cold dead fingers, I reckons. Me and my kiddos who want to take your guns away and incidentally protect my livelihood are going to sink your ship.
