After the Parkland mass murders, and now after the Santa Fe school shootings, GOP politicians trotted out the same old insincere BS as always. They pretend to be shocked, shocked at the mayhem. After Parkland, at first the useless Floriduh legislature refused even to take up any bill related to gun violence. They did have time, however, to pass a resolution that mandates that all public schools and other public buildings must have the phrase”In God We Trust publicly posted.
Well, in a sense they’re right–God may take care of us but the GOP surely won’t. They’re way too busy counting cash from the NRA.
Paul Ryan wasted no time in saying that “This is not the time” to talk about restricting second amendment “rights”. Because, whipped pup that he is, he’s not gonna go against his wealthy owners. It’s obvious that Ryan’s more concerned about keeping GOP cash flow than protecting citizens. Yeah, he’s a real profile in courage! Don’t let the door hit ya in the butt on the way out of the House of Representatives, Ryan.
It’s not just him. The whole GOP and its Lilliputian candidates and elected officials will always have their grubby paws out to the National Rifle Association, (NRA)–which gives them hundreds of millions of dollars–and anyone else who’ll give them cash.
As the old song goes; “Money. Money, money, money, money.” The GOP should just be straight up about it and adopt that song as the party’s anthem. Maybe they could change the hypocritical slogan they sanctimoniously spout–“In God We Trust”– to the more pragmatic and accurate “In Cash We Trust”.
Because the GOP couldn’t care less about kids, teachers or USA citizens in general.
What the GOP “leadership,” and GOP beneficiaries of the NRA’s filthy lucre, care about is money and doing the bidding of their donors to keep that liquid cash flowing smoothly into party coffers.
So, please, GOP, spare us your crocodile tears and sanctimonious “concern” for the latest collateral damage from your gutless refusal to take sensible steps to at least expand background checks for potential gun purchasers. That latest school shooting damage was only a paltry 10 lives and a handful of wounded kids. Well worth the price, eh? It’s a veritable pittance, in the GOP grand scheme of things.
GOP, you’re the enablers here. You commie sympathizers are as unpatriotic as it gets.
Democracy? You can’t handle democracy. You people just don’t get it, and you’re never gonna get it. You’re contemptible. And predictable. And on a moral par with the Dems, who are similarly inured to the lives of non-constituents and constituents alike.
What would Jesus say to the GOP?
“Hell is way too good for you people.”
