Oh Say Can You See?

The day after an eight-year old kills himself by firing an Uzi into his head at a gun show, we learn that in the land of the free and the home of the brave there is a principle -"Hard economic times always result in firearm sales. People buy firearms during periods of uncertainty."

And also, I suppose, take their children to gun shows and let them play with automatic rifles.

Americans are so enamored with their guns that many are still angry at the lefty, John McCain, because he actually had the temerity to support onerous gun-control measures such as requiring purchasers to undergo background checks. The commie bastard!

Did you see the report on The Daily Show last night with real Americans worrying themselves sick about the Muslim terrorist, Barack Obama?

This was just after the story broke last night about the wing-nuts who were organizing - if you can call their frat boy ineptitude "organizing" - an Obama assassination.

The greatest country in the world...excuse me...

Wherever you may travel today, stop, get down on your knees and thank whomever or whatever you may believe in that you are on Canadian soil at this time in history.

This is the America of today, and it is very scary. Apparently the far right believes Obama to be a Marxist, or would like the unwashed to believe such. This will surely make a good skit on SNL, although, sadly it is not a joke.

I don't disagree with anything you've said, David. But you seemingly forgot to include this in your list of things wrong with Americans these days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ujuXfF41Hc

Are Christian Republican women the new Blacks?

Also, why do I sense that here in Vancouver this Halloween if a replica of Stephen Harper were hung by a noose by gays in the West End that many people would just laugh it off?

A few hours later ... you're lived up to your reputation as a man of fairness, David. Thank you.

I can't help but notice though how few comments have been added to the Palin noose video. I have definite suspicions why.
