Midnight Meme For The Day!


by Noah

And isn't it strange that we have a so-called "president" who did away with a law that made it tougher for mentally ill people to get guns. Was it because that so-called "president" was so determined to undo any of the good things that his predecessor did for the American people that the idea of making it easier for the mentally ill getting their hands on war weapons didn't matter? Or, was it because we obviously have a severely mentally ill so-called "president." Or, both? That's a rhetorical question. We have a madman in the oval office.

Now, after 17 more are dead at the hands of a mentally ill gunman, it's not so strange that that so-called "president," only out of some sort of political expediency, now claims that, maybe we should "look into" making it harder for mentally ill people to get guns by having background checks that might trip up some of them. Oh wait, that is pretty strange. Should we just have laws that enable the mentally ill to buy guns every other year? Every 2 years? Just during leap years?

And isn't it strange that the mentally ill inhabitant of the oval office still has the whole-hearted support of his party and that fellow psychotics like House Speaker Paul Ryan still say, after every damn mass shooting, including the one last week, that "now is not the time" to discuss the problem? Well, not really, if, like Ryan you don't see mass shootings as enough of a problem, not when you have more important things to do like strip people of their Social Security and Medicare. "Now is not the time" has become as much of a mantra and defining point of being a republican as being anti-abortion. That's pretty confusing, if you think about it. To Republicans, a woman doesn't have the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy via abortion but a mental case has the right to terminate a fully-formed, living, breathing, laughing, learning teenager, or any of us, via a gun?

And, isn't it strange that any politician who takes bribes from the NRA continues to value that cash in the pocket more than they value the lives of our children, or us, and continues to do so as the bloody corpses pile up?

And, isn't it strange that the so-called "president's" party and media allies react to the protests of children whose friends and teachers got shot in their schools by saying they are being paid to protest by the other party? Can you imagine being so personally whacked out that you actually believe that and say that aloud, in public? You'd have to be mentally ill yourself. Imagine that, a whole party of the mentally ill, for the mentally ill. Would you let your congressperson buy a gun?

And isn't it strange that so many Americans vote for people who act so strangely and don't give a damn about them? It's that the ultimate case of voting against your own self-interest. It's a Death Wish.

Well of course not. Those countries all have perfect Donna Reed families, school prayer, and corporal punishment. Not to mention no violent media.

The US is the sickest society in the history of mankind.
It stands to reason that we have far more mental illness than they have.
We also don't treat mental illness except for the lucky ones who are jailed.

Given the results of 2016, it is also defensible to claim that we are very close to a majority mentally ill society.

But our solution to letting the mentally ill have guns is to arm the NOT mentally ill and sit back and enjoy the perpetual fire fight. I'm getting my nra boner just thinking about that.

It's not so strange at all! The US of A has been insane since Colonial times. Our bloodlust and intense desire to kill and destroy has never been treated.

In Canada's instance, FOX isn't allowed broadcasting rights to make things worse because Canadian Law requires that "news" organizations only tell verifiable fact.

I knew there was a reason I wanted to move to Canada, and now I have another. No FOX! How wonderful.
