I’m scared

Just musing on what happened yesterday in Tuczon, Arizona where 6 people died, and 12 critically wounded, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat.

1.Republican Rep. Gringey encourages guns at townhall meetings. Check

2. Republican candidate Sharron Angle proposes “2nd Amendment Remedies.” Check

3. Republican Sarah Palin crosshairs on Congresswoman Giffords and lists her by name. Check

4. Republican website: Get on target for victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M-16 with Jason Kelly. Check

Go forward, Christians! Jesus loves us ! Defeat Health Care reform ! Eliminate Welfare and all these social services. They are the opium of society ! The poor are just lazy slobs ! I want tax cuts! Give my money back!!!!!

Ooops, sorry. Is this allowed on my blog?

I’m just scared.  Jesus does not love me. I am not white, I am poor, and I’m an immigrant.

    I like your many points here. I like the tone this blog sets. Makes me dream of a world without such nonsense, as I often think of the concept of faith in humanity

  2. Jeremy, I’m not sure what kind of tone I have inadvertently set. Rereading this post, I guess it doesn’t make any sense, but that’s exactly what this horrible event is all about. What else can I say?

    Its a sad thing what happend. Politics have always been dirty, which I find should be changed. If the other team wins, so be it, don’t go all angered over it and send people after the winning party.

    The man who did this, is a monster, but he was anti-gov, known for going crazy and having mental issues. The college he went to even sent a letter to his family, but that didn’t seem to help. There are many people like that every where, it just takes time before people like that snap. The best thing people can do, is look for the warning signs, but in this Nation it seems to always be to late. Why, because people don’t tend to care any more, they are just into what their life is, not the bigger picture.

    I am pro gun, but I do think they sale guns to easily to people. It the money that matters, not how the gun is used, that the gun saler cares about. They don’t bother doing a background check for mental issues, if they are from the USA or not, (Because I know half of the guns get sold to Mexican drug runners who use it for their war) any crimes the person did, or anything like that.

    The world is a deadly place, but if only people would stop and look for awhile, they might see things that could change something deadly into something that saves lives instead.

    “I’m just scared. Jesus does not love me. I am not white, I am poor, and I’m an immigrant.”

    I just re-read your blog. Girl, Jesus loves everyone, he just can’t save everyone. Don’t let “not being white” get you down either. White’s over rated and we have the rule in our house, “Don’t trust Whitey”. For being poor, money isn’t everything. Your rich in family and friends. Stick to college, get a good degree that gets you a high paying job. It takes time, but works in the long run. For being an immigrant, who wasn’t? In my book, your an American! Its just people have to take this tragic insident and turn it good. To insure things like this don’t happen again, while not taking the freedom away from people at the same time.

    Now for the Republican’s showing off, at the time, most were just happy, seeing that they would be making a landslide into getting into the office. Democrats do the same thing. Its a shame when they fight each other like that, when in truth, they need to be working together, or else it will be a Nation devided.

    • Those last statements were intentional. I have no plans of turning my blog into a political one.
      One of the tasks given to me as a political volunteer was to post on several fora that we thought were anti-Hillary and defend her in the most civil way possible, but despite my best efforts, I almost got banned…. it was on DailyKos. The point is, do you think I could do that on DailyKos by being sweety-sweety and ignorant airhead with nothing to spit out, tit for tat?

    Check lists are a good way to communicate.

    I’ve never been that much into politics, but of course what took place in Arizona was a tragedy. In this post you made a lot of good points, and I can see where this doesn’t look good for the Republican party. I think the gunman was intensely mentally unstable thus his mind was easily sculpted. Strong beliefs or not, that’s no reason to open fire.

    • And that’s exactly what the gun control law is trying to solve….. it’s not to ban guns, bu=t to have a 30-day waiting period before a buyer gets the gun. Why are the pro-gun folks so againts that?

  7. Thanks for previously commenting on my blog…helped me discover yours! You make some pretty good points here. Jesus loves us, Uncle Sam prefers whites. We’re most susceptible to Sammy boy’s agenda more than anyone else.
