Let’s eliminate the lies

2

If we heard correctly a woman, who may or may not
have been drinking, ran her car into a homecoming
crowd at a college in Oklahoma. Doing so she
killed a 23 year student, a married 65 year old
couple, a 2 year child, and injured dozens.

Yet this incident didn’t get the coverage that the
overdose in a whore house got? And there were no
protests, no demands for ‘car control’, no
preachers saying not one more like after other
deaths.. Just grief and disbelief.

Nobody demanded tougher registration for cars or
that breatalizers be installed in all vehicles. Nor
did anyone suggest tougher laws to make said cars
safer. No riots broke out and no businesses burned.
Just grief and disbelief.

We know what it would be like if the woman had
opened fire with a gun. Yet all those talking heads
who demand more gun control forget a few things.
The government would make the laws for tougher gun
laws. Good you say?

The same government who passed a law making some
drugs illegal and declared a war on said drugs?
Unless a miracle happened and we haven’t heard of
it yet, our country still has a drug problem.

Our government also declared a war on poverty yet
we have more people on welfare than ever before.
while the workforce that pays for that welfare is
shrinking. Could the government be wrong?

In 2011, 9,878 people were killed by drunk drivers
That year 1,140 children under the age of 14 were
killed by drunk drivers.

In 2011, 8.583 people were killed with a firearm.
That number represented .34% of all deaths that
year.

We don’t need the government to run our lives we
need them to uphold the Constitution. It is past
time to eliminate the lies and say that our
government isn’t doing its job.
Comments are always welcome.

    And, if i remember right, 2/3 of the firearm deaths were suicide. A friend of mine committed suicide by overdosing on prescription drugs. Should we eliminate prescription drugs?

    Do you ever submit these posts in the form of letters to the editor or your legislators? As ‘well-informed’ as those people claim to be they seem to miss common sense true stuff like this.

    Brittius,
    thanks for the reblog.

    Dale Gilmour,
    good point. They seem to drug for everything today and Doctor’s don’t mind prescribing them. Perhaps we need ‘drug’ safes in our homes.

    ekurie,
    never have. I used to pen a few letters to the editor but got tired of
    the rewriting. We live in a Liberal stronghold and our paper used to be called “The Democrat”..
