Chicago will be safer after the Presidents speech or How to blow smoke up the ass of America. Pick a title.


Today the POTUS will surround himself with children. Children who we are to believe took it upon themselves to write the White House, because lets face it, who among us didn't write the president at some point during their childhood? Liberal anti gun folks will sit in front of their televisions, eyes brimming with tears as they hang on every word that rolls from Barry's lips. Newtown ,Aurora, Gabby Giffords, and Columbine will be referenced repeatedly. A bloody mantra. When it's all over, not a single life will have been saved. We won't be any safer. We WILL be even more divided as a nation. Those who support any and every thing Obama proposes will pat themselves on their collective back. They will stroke their fragile egos. They will assure themselves that THEY are the better people. They CARE.  They are what is GOOD and RIGHT in this country. They will go about their lives never questioning why their concern, their collective outrage, doesn't or hasn't to this point, extended beyond the rare mass shooting to the ever present and ongoing daily violence that plagues this country.

Meanwhile, here in the real world, people will continue to die. Chicago will continue to be more dangerous than Iraq or Afghanistan. Blood will run through the streets of every major and minor city in the nation. The president probably wont mention Chicago, even though he began his swift rise to power in Chi town. He owns a home there. A home that will continue to be protected by Secret Service agents for the remainder of Obamas life or at least as long as he owns it. We chortle derisively at the mention of armed guards in schools, but never utter a sound at the hypocrisy of protecting an unoccupied house with armed guards. 

African Americans who voted for Obama simply because of his ethnicity won't bother to question why the killings of mostly white children has drawn such a dramatic response while their own children die at the hands of one another as regularly as a clock ticks. They will praise the administration for taking a stand against the hoardes of hillbillies who legally own guns, who never commit a single crime. Their world won't be any safer in the inner city. They still won't sleep in front of windows, or sit on their porches late of a summer evening.
They will mistakenly believe that new gun laws that restrict law abiding Americans from protecting themselves somehow makes the world a safer place. They won't question how. They will just blindly and stupidly believe. The next day or the following hour, another of their young will lay bleeding out on cold concrete. Nothing will change.

In Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, or any other city, African Americans will continue to die in disproportionate numbers, at  their own hands. They won't be killed in mass shootings while in school. The predators who rule their streets and instill fear in their lives will continue the business of killing. and business is booming. The liberal left will cheer the President for his brave action. They will high 5 one another. They will swell with pride for being  good and decent, forward thinking folks. They will go back to their suburban lives, in their idyllic neighborhoods, and quicker than you can say Chai Latte with Soy Milk, another family in the urban core will bury another child.

Gun violence in this country isn't about who has the most bullets, the fastest firing pistol, or the most guns. Gun violence in this country is overwhelmingly about gang violence, a lack of value on human life, and a culture that celebrates sociopaths. Violence in this country cannot be placed solely on any single race or subculture. However, a disproportionately small percentage of society is responsible for an equally disproportionately high percentage of death and violence in this country. Until people develop the stones to speak on it, nothing will change. But at least folks can feel good that Obama cares about rare mass shootings, even if he has ignored the deaths of young black boys who  look like his own son, if he had one. Nothing political about that. Nothing to see here. Move along and stay clear of windows.

  1. I won't even watch it. The bovine fecal material that will spew from the screen will be nothing compared to what comes from the mouths of those paid to comment on it.

    I find the process disgusting.

  3. Impeachment (with removal from office and/or imprisonment) or revolution will be the only thing that stops him.

  5. Preach it, Mike!

    One thing no one wants to talk about is the LAw of Unintended Consequences. Sure, ban ALL guns. Ban ALL private sales. Ban ammunition. Ban whatever you want, but guess what?

    There's more of us than there are those who agree with the Commander-in-Thief. We are well-armed, and fully prepared to use the arms if need be in defense of the Republic.

    1. I knew you were Right Wing and "out there" but I gave you more credit than this lunatic, irresponsible statement, Dan.

      And you're mistaken here, too. Far more Americans have had it with the crazies with guns than you know, clearly.

    2. Heads up, kiddies:

      No one wants to ban all weapons.

      No one responsible and in any position of real power.

    3. Scrath that sand, Mo, but you still can't cover-up the stink coming from Washington. Obama is just a puppet for the Collectivists, and they will keep hom dancing as long as he is useful to them.

      You keep on spouting that old, dead, sixties rhetoric of leftist insanity, I'm sure it keeps you all warm n fuzzy at night.

    4. Really, do tell, Dan from Chicago. What "old, dead, sixties rhetoric of leftist insanity" am I spewing, exactly?

      I'd love to know.

      Is it the one where the wars are stupid? That one? Because if so, you should know I'm right about that one, for sure. None any more so than the Iraq War.

  7. Frequently when you write here, you're correct.

    You had to miss once, anyway.

      With all due respect, YOU'RE wrong.

      Do tell us all where dear Mark "missed", Mo Rage.

    2. The country is sick to death of people being mowed down by lunatics with guns.

      We've had it. We need at least some, few restrictions on weapons.

      And it looks like we will now, finally, get them.

      That's how he's mistaken.

    3. Howsabout we have some lunatic control? Oh yeah, that would violate their "right to privacy", wouldn't it...much better to violate the rights of the law-abiding people who own firearms.

      Take a look at the linkages between antidepressants and mass homicides. Each and every mass shooting in the last several decades has been perpetrated by a shooter who is either on antidepressants, or who has stopped taking antidepressants within a month of the shooting.

      A last small point. In the so-called "wild west", there were no restrictions on firearm ownership. If someone was sent to prison, they surrendered their weapon at the door, and got it back when they walked out. Take a look at the murder/rape/forcible crime rates from back then...they were practically non-existent.

    4. Actually, the only things we're calling for--logically enough--is that we eliminate the manufacture and sale of new assault weapons since they have no place in an intelligent society but belong, instead, on war battlefields and that we have background checks for mental stability and criminal history and finally, that there is a mandatory waiting period for weapons purchases of at least a few days, minimum.

      No one's 2nd Amendment rights would be infringed in any way. There would still be tons and tons, literally, of weapons.

  8. As expected, Mo Rage delivers the libtardian dribble view in the face of real truths.

    Dang Mark! If those inner-city kids would just quit trying to live out the lyrics of a rap song.....


    A ban of any kind with out total confiscation (and I just dont see that happening) will do absolutely NOTHING to curb gun violence.

    Well worded my friend, as usual.

  11. Dear MM: You make a lot of good points!! The thing to remember about why no one cares about dead black homicide victims is that this is a problem that cannot be blamed on racism (93% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks), so it is ignored by the black political class. Take KCMO: In his "State of the City" message in Jan. 2012 Mayor James does not mention the city's crime problems; then a couple of months later during the Trayvon Martin controversy the Mayor makes a very public appearance at a "Justice for Trayvon" rally. Tragically for black neighborhoods all over America, black-on-black crime is the "orphan issue" of US politics. Take care!! Sincerely and Respectfully, Ernest Evans

  12. Crime in St Louis is down to 1970's levels adjusted for population. Of course the far-right repuglipigs would never mention that fact. It is time now not to control the guns but the ammo, Then the crazies can go back to making their own.
