The election is over and we don’t think that anyone is
surprised with outcome. Here we had a low turnout as it seems
more and more people are getting tired of politics as usual.
The campaigns promise the winning politicians only have us
voters in mind and after being sworn in it will be business as
usual and we won’t count. In Washington nothing will get done
as the two parties are too busy doing interviews about issues
that aren’t problems, or trying to stop the other party from
getting anything done.
One thing that does amaze us is the sheer number of people
who get their facts from the media and still speak out against
bills they know nothing about while ignoring the real problems
that could be helped. Like more gun laws.
If they don’t strictly enforce the ones we have, how would
adding more restrictions that don’t get enforced help? If one
looks back on the recent mass shootings, they have two things
in common. A gun, or it wouldn’t be a shooting, and a person
who is crazier than an outhouse rat.
Even Illinois has admitted the jails are over run with people
who should be in a mental health facility. So instead of
addressing the issue of all these crimes being committed by
mentally ill people, it must be easier to blame the weapon.
We don’t have an answer but do know it doesn’t involve more
gun laws. People are dying while the politicians dance around
We hope you will enjoy our Wednesday as much as I know we will.
