In the history of America we have never had a politically motivated assassination, not one, not ever. The deity smiles on our exceptional country. This is in spite of the fact that we have committed so many politically motivated assassinations abroad.
In Der Fatherland, it is not that we do not murder and assassinate. Statistically we are doing quite well in that area. Our blessing has been that domestic atrocities are always committed by apolitical lone lunatics. That this has often changed our political destiny has been a remarkable coincidence.
I am also impressed by the common sense of the blogging community. Guns do not kill people. People with guns kill people. It has been pointed out that murder can be committed in any number of creative ways. It can (however) be tricky to mow someone down standing on a motel balcony or in a second story theater box by driving your Mustang over them.
Pointing this out is not meant to strengthen the position of those who would like to see sensible regulations on gun ownership. They are evil people and I have them in my crosshairs.
Rattlesnakes and bobcats are a terrible problem here in our southwestern shopping centers. Ten percent of South-westerners die from Bear attacks in JC Pennys. For this reason I stand ready to blast the head off any snake I encounter at the mall. Guns should be sold in vending machines in every saloon and bar in America. There should be no restrictions whatsoever. We will only be safe when everyone is packing heat at all times.
We know hundreds of thousands of minds and viewpoints change every time someone Blogs. For this reason I have exercised great care choosing my words today. I apologize for not joining in the great Kumbaya moment that seems underway. I fully expect this new era of peace harmony and love to last forever.
Or at least until someone suggests genetically modified foods should be labeled.
