1. With all the coy disingenuousness of a professional politician, Ben Affleck has gone public and and boldly announced he does not know whether he wants to pursue a career in politics. What a guy! Could anyone be better suited for political baloney than Handsome Ben? He oozes insincerity from every pore.
2. Led by John Fugelsang and Cenk Uyger of CURRENT TV and the low IQ nitwits over at MSNBC (Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews), the semi-automatic assault weapons of the lunatic left keep firing with barely a finger on the trigger. Apparently these nut cases do not know that, although necessity may be the mother, insanity is the father of invention. Thus, they do not have the cleverness to see that murder cannot be stopped or slowed by getting guns out of the hands of private citizens while permitting police to run berserk with powerful handguns, tear gas and billy clubs and simultaneously cheering on hunters who have already killed or sent bleeding into the woods tens of thousands of “sporting animals” just since the Connecticut massacre. The notion that we should allow cops and hunters to have a free go at weaponry is a demented twist on gun control. Has any anti-gun looney ever seen a spelling bee? Can he spell “MATCH”? How long after the ban on semi-automatic weapons will it be before the lunatics discover M-A-T-C-H spells a great way to go on the rampage and be even better at destruction than they ever could be with guns? Bar the doors, Katy, and don’t let anybody out of the theaters, school auditoriums, the sports arenas and other venues where we can cause a panic and take out thousands instead of a few dozen children. Would that really happen? You can bet your sweet tutti-fruity it would and will within two years of a ban on guns. How to prevent this? Get the guns out of the hands of cops and hunters. Get toy guns out of the hands of children. Make it clear that guns are bad business whenever and wherever the occur. Do not encourage the mad idea that some people are good with guns and that they are good at protecting us. Do not encourage the idea that there is good violence and bad violence.
Now that the public swears allegiance to cops, police brutality is on the rise. Easily 95% of vicious felonies since the Connecticut mayhem has been done by police. It will get worse once we are all convinced that only by restricting weapons to police can we be safe. One word best described the American public – GULLIBLE. Another pretty good description is BRAINWASHED. What must be done? (A) Get weapons of all sorts out of the hands of police. If they need weapons to operate, we don’t want them at all. If you have no idea how police can do their work without possessing the means of viciousness, move to another country, where witlessness is encouraged among the citizenry. (B) Propagate the idea that violence is bad business. Do not go to movies where the themes are blown up cars, thrilling car chases, and smashed glass. Do not let your children see “hero” movies in theaters or on TV. (C) Discourage all praise for “good guys.” (D) Surrender worship of rap stars who divide their time between making billions of dollars and going out on drunken brawls. Even that plays its roles. (E) Don’t go saloon-hopping at 1 A.M. Try this instead: stay home and read a good book. If need be, read a bad book. (F) End police access to cocaine, heroin and other hard drugs they so easily steal from storage bins. (G) End police corruption and brutality altogether. http://www.policebrutality.info/tag/usa-police. (H) Pay more attention to foreign policy. Ignorance is desensitizing. Consider the last 8 days: 6 drone strikes, 35 dead. Did you know that? Do you know that poachers in Kenya opened the new Year by killing three rhino? Do you care? Will you slug me over the head with the old shibboleth, “At a time like this, are you worrying about animals?” If you are not worrying, I doubt you really give a damn about children, either. (I) Stop the crap of “Our people first. Then the rest of the world.” All inhumanity hangs together. (J) Organize a petition that reads: “Mr. Cuomo, you are a stupid man. Please step down from your perch as governor of NY.” (L) Send a note to Charles Schumer, Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration lunch that features bison and lobster and tell him “Mr. Senator, you are a very stupid man. Please resign from the Senate.” Why don’t you do that instead of crying about dead children? Too constructive a step, I imagine. (L) Don’t vote for Republicans. (M) Don’t vote at all. Wait until an honest candidate makes his appearance. It will be a long wait but there is no alternative to patience. (N) Don’t waste your time and mine by sending me a note that I made a mistake by skipping “K” in this list. I know I did. It was intentional in order to see which of you is so stupid as to get a note ready for me.
3. Stop sending me private e-mail notes asking me not to call people stupid. That’s a stupid thing to do. Stop telling me to be nasty because the simple truth is that I am the least nasty person in the world.
4. Get on to a meaningful life. Learn the difference between “hence” and “henceforth.” Until then, stop crying over spilled blood.
