“Bad advice will blind you, good advice will instruct you, excellent advice will enlighten you, and transcendent advice will elevate you.” ― Matshona Dhliwayo
It is fairly obvious from the events of the last number of days that President “know it all” Trump is quite willing to throw grade school teachers under the bus in order to not offend his NRA support and campaign contributors.
Does he really expect teachers to congregate at the target practice range during their lunch hours to hone their firearm skills?
Apparently these same instructors after going through the “proper” training will be able to handle and obliterate any attacker in a manner that is easy as pie.
Does this attitude not indicate that he is a mentally feeble leader who is transferring the shoot ’em up world of television into a life and death situation in which the collateral damage is the lives of innocent children and their teacher guardians?
Too many Republicans and staunch NRA members are laying the blame on the deranged folks who sneak through the cracks and make the headlines.
One politician recently commented that the break up of the family and the lack of having a father figure at home might be the root cause of such shooting disaster.
Many feel that these attitudes held by and expressed publicly by hard-core gun owners represent a political cop-out and the public forgiveness of the NRA philosophy of pushing for the forceful enactment of their beloved second amendment right.
However these same folks have in their own way limited the first amendment right to free speech. The Center for Disease Control and the National Institute of Mental Health have had their funding cut by this president who finds such research a waste of public funding.
You begin to wonder if the bone spur in Trump’s leg is beginning to affect what limited mental capacity he does have beneath his phony crop of hair. – gc
