I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but this issue on gun control is still on the air and people are not understanding the true issue. Bob Costas, put it beautifully when he appeared on the Daily Show “Newtown happened, and that seemed to change the tone,” Costas said. “Horribly tragic as that was, it did redirect, and if at least people are now somewhat more willing to think about this more rationally and compassionately, then that’s a good thing.” He added that these issues on gun control had nothing to do with our second amendment as a reporter put it “Costas stressed the need not to repeal or alter the second amendment, rather the need to change America’s gun culture.”
“I think any sane person believes we ought not have high capacity magazines and assault rifles and that there ought to be background checks,” Costas said. “You know what? I’m not exactly sure what’s sane, but I know a lot of what I’ve heard in the aftermath is insane.”
People, what he meant to say is that the problem we have in this country is not that we can or cannot have a gun in our homes, or that the government is trying to take over of our rights, but to change our gun culture. Gun culture you ask? well let me put it in perspective as Costas did, we changed our views on peoples religion and skin color but our first amendment was never taken away from us, because we changed our views and culture on that topic. Moreover, Cigarettes are still legal, but our views are different from 30 years ago. understand? we are not going to loose our rights or our guns, instead we need to change our gun culture so massacres like Newton or others will happen less and less in the years to come.
Statistically, we have seen the numbers go down in the Republican party when the subject of Hispanics comes along. These white Republican men never thought that they would see in this life time a shift on demographics and in political power. But please don’t be naive when you hear that the republicans now are thinking about the Hispanics. They always knew about the importance of Hispanics in this country’s economy and social status, however they did not care too much about them because it never affected the polls before. But in the last four elections we have seen the increasing numbers being more progressive and more beneficial to the democrats when Hispanic votes are counted. Now, that the Republicans are loosing more often and the Hispanics have made a dent to their party, now they want to tackle issues like deportation, immigration laws, amnesty and so forth, because Republicans are loosing ground rapidly. It is embarrassing when the republican party of Abraham Lincoln is no more and the positions have switched where the democrats always (since i remember) have backed the minorities as much as they could, even if it is just politics, but now it is paying off. Well, it is too late. This is a hypocritical move on the behave of the Republicans and I don’t care what they say, because i know they wont mean it. Furthermore, they know that Hillary Clinton will be the next Democratic nominee in 2016 and they are doing what ever they can today to built a stronger base against Clinton, but again, it is too late. The democrats have the upper hand however you look at it. And I’m one of those proud Democrats. Maybe in 2024 the republicans would have a chance…
Are you FU&%@*G kidding me right now? HSBC is “too big to prosecute”? and Former directors from AIG are suing the US Government because of unfair rates for its shareholders at the bail out agreement? What in the hell is wrong with this country? Don’t you guys see how Shallow we have become as a State and society?
HBCS is too big to prosecute? I don’t understand!! where are our principals that we fought so hard for in the 1700’s? where are our standards as a nation? our morals? So what if our economy is weak, so what if many people will loose their jobs, those are not excuses to let criminals do as they please. What about the example that we are sending to the younger generations and other countries? our massage that says money and power buys everything even though we don’t deserve it. What a shameful and disgrace move !!!!
AIG is suing the same people that saved their behinds when they were in need, after their improper investments and operations? another one that was “too big to fail” and now is biting the hand that fed it? Man I’m so sick of the materialism and facades that rules over our nation. I pray that someone will put a final STOP to all these madness. We have so much in our country and acts like these are gonna make us loose everything. Please write to your representatives in congress and lets take action, THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS !!!!
If you DO the crime, you should DO the time, period. If it was I the one stealing or doing monkey business, I guarantee you I will be behind bars in a second. HSBC directors should be persecuted for their improper operations that dealt directly with terrorists and drug lords, period. And I hope that our Government and society learned its lesson about leading money to companies whom don’t deserve it and whom don’t know how to follow financial laws and company standards.
You would think that after the final defeat that the republican party had after the re-nomination of our President, they would get their act together. But it seems that such event just made things worst not only because republicans clearly did not appreciated the votes of the people to keep them in power representing the interest of their constituents, but now the war it is not only to the Democrats but to themselves. The Tea party has not kept a secrete of their dislike towards the Speaker of the House. Moreover, The flamboyant Governor Cristie from NJ (R) won many enemies after praising Obama and the way the government handled the Storm Sandy. Not only these enemies emerged from the darkness but also in the open when the Congress and the Speaker delayed the rescue stimulus for the States of NY and NJ, making many families wonder and grow inpatient. After many public speeches from many, complaining about this horrific act by congress, The damaged States only got 9B out of the 60B previously asked, because our Congress believes that 9B should be “more than enough”. Really? We have put in power many shallow representatives that run this country or claim to represent us in a joking manner. It is disgusting to see how our politics have governed these passed 4 years and it does not seem to slow down any time soon. First this ridiculous circus of the fiscal cliff took the nations attention by storm and again many fingers were pointed. Furthermore, now we have the great debt ceiling coming up, an event that WILL effect us directly and fast. We are done lending money, WE HAVE NO MORE TO BARROW FROM, what the heck are we going to do if another drama evolves when the republicans and Democrats cannot come to an agreement about our debt?
Do we (the people) need to do something drastic to catch the attention of those fools (politicians)? what do we need? do we need a new 1M man march? a new social revolution? a civil and organized arms up to kick the politicians out of power? a civil war? a new people’s party? WHAT THE HECK IS IT THAT WE NEED? why people always are looking for solutions for problems? why can we learn to prevent them? I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of this crap of politics. If they want to play politics among each other, FINE. However, when politics affects our social living, social economics, social development, social standards, social involvement, and social economics and financials, then I HAVE A PROBLEM with that. So much education in our political parties, but yet they ALL act very ignorant and shamelessly. Please write to your representative and put your foot down about this craziness. I hate to say this, But our Government is looking for us to act and become a new France!!!! Is that what our politicians want? well tell them and let your voice speak out, hopefully they will listen. Hopefully.
