Reading The Spin's review of it's first ever CMA Music Fest attendance, I'm reminded of my daughter and son when they were in their teens, but toss in a major heaping of hipstir snobbery and gameboy snarkiness.
An arena concert is all about the show. You know, show business. Some artists can do a show, but they still do a good concert. But in the arena, it's the show, the performance, the wow-factor above and beyond the music that people remember. It's what The Spin remembered.
Just the other day I went to my local Walgreens to buy some Tide laundry detergent. Imagine my surprise when I found it was locked up and I needed a store employee to make my purchase. Then on top of that, the employee carried it up to the checkout counter and placed it behind the counter.
I've been a law abiding laundry detergent user ever since my mother decided I was old enough to run the clothes washer and gave me proper training. But because some criminals in KY, MN, MD, CO and a number of other states have abused this right, I am being subjected to ever increasing laundry detergent controls!
Now, my question is, why should a man who has shown irresponsible behavior with a gun be permitted to keep said gun and the right to bear arms? This type of behavior unchecked will lead to more stringent gun control, as has happened with laundry detergent. It may not happen under the current iteration of the state and federal government, but people will change, some leaving government, others joining government.
I agree with protecting the 2nd Amendment. One way to protect it for the future is to protect it from abuses today.
It's clear to me with science undecided on the subject, that the GA cannot make a decision. If science unquestionably decides fluoridation of water is good, then the GA can unequivocally vote against fluoridation, and vice versa. In the mean time it's best to pass bills to protect the state from the next UN mandated incursion into the looney bin.
Just as we can legislate gun crimes out of existence, we can't legislate drug problems out of existence. Why not put the money that is going into ineffective programs into the hands of law enforcement and give them a better shot at actually hitting the illegal drug manufacturers and dealers where it hurts most.
The side benefit of this it will give the GA more time to focus on their crazy fringe laws. Anything to stay away from the real issues effecting the residents of this state will work.
Okay, I did some digging and I got to the truth. Comcast has service interruptions that shut down the TV, Internet and telephone at Womick's house. I used to get those EMP bombs all the time until I left Comcast.
"If you want to debate me on firearms and what they'll do, you're not arguing with a novice." -- gast
It's not so much the firearms, but the people holding the firearms that concern me. In a controlled environment, where HCP hopefuls have to be on their best behavior, everyone is saintly. The rest of live isn't so saintly.
If a disgruntled employee comes into the workplace with a gun and all the HCP owners rush out to their car to get their piece to defend themselves, how safe are everyone once the bullets start flying? Who is the "bad guy" that needs to be hunted down and more importantly does everyone know beyond a shadow of a doubt who that "bad guy" is?
""It amazes me that when you put g-u-n in a sentence, people seem to lose common sense..."
This is most likely the only truth I've seen attributed to a politician.
