I'm with you, Renee. Whenever those so-called libertarians start shrieking about "freedom," I just want to move slowly away from them and seek shelter. Not a few of them are armed and dangerous.
A very lovely tribute. Thanks, Tom.
Just another byproduct of the pathological American gun fetish. When exactly will we grow the hell up?
One day in the not-too-distant future, we will all look back on this era and marvel at the idiocy that marks our current political discourse. Anarchists are being heralded as defenders of freedom, while those who cry out for common sense are being called socialists and Nazis -- and the desires of a vast majority of 9 out of 10 Americans are ridiculed by sycophantic media whores who unabashedly pander to the powerful forces of greed and paranoia. It is all a shameful carnival of ignorance and egomania that completely contradicts our conviction that we are a civilized nation.
It's pretty damn simple, as I see it. The gun fetishists clearly care more about their weapons than they do about human beings. Most gun owners aren't crazy, but there is a hard-core minority that worships weaponry above all else -- and has a stranglehold on the United States Congress. All of us have an opportunity to change this in 2014, if we would only do it.
Michael Savage? Seriously? Is someone at KVOI on crack?
I think a lot of us are going to be crossing the Colorado River during the next couple of years, as Arizona continues its depressing environmental and political decline.
