The NRA wants to affect gun violence in society by addressing everything but gun control. The Tea Party wants to address the mounting fiscal crisis in our country by doing everything but raising revenue. Fox News is fighting a War on Christmas in a country where more than 90% of country celebrates Christmas and about 80% of country is Christian. They have real problems with science. Science! Friggin SCIENCE. Stem cell research, Darwinism, global warming, womens health, Earth Science, and Lord only knows what else.
And the killer part is when they are called for being stupid, alot of the right wing will answer with "liberals always want to hide behind science to advance their agenda." As if reading and the scientific method are something right out of the devils workshop. And thats my major concern. These people revel in ignorance and stupidity. Take Sandy Hook for example. The argument I keep hearing is if they don't use guns they will use a bomb. As if you can spontaneously go to your closet and grab your bomb and kill dozens of people on a whim. Or my other favorite is arming the teachers. Yeah because we can trust untrained and or untested people with firearms in a high stress situation (meaning when someone is shooting at them), and we wont even discuss what happens when these "protectors" start firing rounds down range when down range is full of screaming kids running everywhere.
I am not saying this to be mean or sarcastic, I am saying this because I want the right to wake up and lets have an honest debate and real solutions. We will never effectively deal with global warming when Fox News sees an early winter blizzard as evidence that global warming does not exist and the left cant say anything because they are laughing at the stupidity of the statement. How are we going deal with the fiscal cliff when the solution is taxes and cuts but one side will never discuss a tax hike?
If I seeded this right there are going to calls to "prove this" or "back up that" and all those claims will be ignored by me. Everything I said is well documented and if you need proof your uninformed and not worthy of my time to debate you.
