...Bingo!!! without fathers to teach what it really is to be a man...and the value of the life of the individual...and common decency and respect, and hard work...etc, etc...they end up living for today and the moment...and I've had more than a few look me in the eye and tell me they never expect to live to be 30...they have no hope for a normal life...no values...no true North to their compass...There are always going to be crazy people who are hell bent on killing, we are NEVER going to stop all of them.
I want an end to gun violence too. I want young black men to stop murdering each other in America's cities over money, crack cocaine, territory, "respect" and the like. I want men to actually stand up and be men and actually be a positive male role model for the children they father. That will go much farther to stopping gun violence than any law ever could. The problem is in the communities and the (lack of) family structure and the media which glorifies the 'thug culture', which ends one of two places 1) prison 2) death.
If you want to see a real change then address the real pervasive problem, don't grandstand on what is the best buy with your political capital.
This is very true. Ask most people and they will think that there were WMDs in Iraq and that we need and should have gone there. Say a lie enough and people will believe it.Propaganda is a very effective tool. Just keep telling lies and people will believe it if they here it for long enough. These guys learned well from the Germans and their propaganda machine of the 30s and 40s.
He's even acknowledged it wouldn't have done so.He never tells us how this new bill would have prevented the shooting in New Town, CT. It is disgusting when he says things would have been better if only the shooter had to reload. :irked:

Gotta loved the two-faced, able to simultaneously grin-and-bear-it as well as deadpan the lies. Scary, that many of them likely actually believe the pap they push. They certainly believe the vast majority are going to swallow it whole.
