As I look at things like this:
and, of course this:
Weenie LaPutrid's massive Notpology to the grieving families, friends and colleagues of those killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.
I feel the need to be polite and respectful to those who lost loved ones in the senseless act of selfishness that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtownl, CT and the memories of those murdered there.
I also feel the need to be impolite and disrespectful to the liars, idiots and paranoic conspiracy theorists who think that their FREEDOM to be able to own and carry weapons--weapons which have have no genuine purpose, aside from allowing such cowardly and horrific acts as the shootings in Newtown--outweighs the rest of society's right to enjoy FREEDOM from being shot by some deranged individual with one of those weapons.
That LaPutrid's gunfomercial is rife with spunskewed bullshit, baseless assertions, cherry-picked facts and figures, misleading allusions, half truths and outright lies ( a fair number of which were debunked within an hour of the speech by, of all people, the MSM--will wonders never cease!) is not a surprise. That is to be expected from a mendacious, duplicitous, mercenary piece of shit like Weenie. The fact that he made no pretense at feeling anything for the victims (his several sentence opening notwithstanding) is also not a surprise; sociopaths can only fake empathy for so long, after all.
No, those things are not surprising. What WAS surprising was that people who have in thrall to that lying fuckbag and his GMRL* actually stood up on their hindlegs and fucking barked. I suspect that any number of them, having satisfied their need to appear to give a fuck about their constituents' actual needs and desires, will be back to their usual sycophancy on Dec. 26th. That so many PAID journalists called Weenie out for his hubristic, pugnacious and fallacious statement is to be applauded but not that much--it is their job, after all.
I find this list of things:
As for the KKKrazzeepants "preppers" and other gunzloonznation KKKonspiracy theorists I don't hold out much hope for them coming to their senses. If the OTHER 90% of owners of firearms break ranks and isolate them, there is some chance of changing the way we do things where teh gunz are concerned.
So, on tuesday, December 25th, when so many of the Bullets&Bibles crowd are opening up the packages with their new Glocks, Bushmasters, Barretts and Berettas and going, "Oooooooooooh, Aaaaah, lookahere, honey! This'uns got that new BABYJESUS laser sight so's you can be thinkin' GOODLY, GODLY thoughts, whilst you're whaKKKin teh "goblins" out there in the big, ol', dangerous world!", the rest of us will be enjoying opening less deadly if no less exciting gifts from our friends and family. Well, we and the gunzloonznation folks will be enjoying our "Tree" on that morning.

though, they won't be opening anything, ever. They have had their collective futures decided for them, by a troubled young man who did not receive whatever it was that he needed and compensated for that lack by destroying the lives of all of those he killed and many of their friends and family.
So, this is all I got for Weenie LaPutrid and his his lobby for the merchants of death.
"A child is born in Bethlehem, while 20 die in Newtown.
Peace on Earth, Goodwill towards men, except...
Fuck you Wayne LaPierre, you fucking fucker. Fuck you and every filthy fucking lie that you have told in the service of your paymasters and the ReiKKKwing of the GOP. I sincerely hope that you are someday able to experience the horror, the loss and the feeling of absolute helplessness that is visited upon the survivors of those killed by people like Mr. Lanza or others who cannot solve their problems without killing people with firearms. It is also my earnest wish that you and your relentless assault on those who would promulgate sane and responsible regualation of fireams will be found, finally, by reasonable firearms owners in the U.S. to be the gibbering insanity of a madman and that you might finally be pushed back under the stone from whence you crawled.".
so--h/t to the Bee Gees--it's only words and words are all I have to make those bastards pay.
You know what? Having said that, I don't feel better, but I do feel like I can take that off my "bucket list".
