Peace is something this country takes for granted. Not to say that other countries are any better. I would like to apologize to my readers. If at anytime I suggested violence or doing something drastic, those were definitely not my intentions. My blog is to inform and to give some incite into what I see is happening. Of course it also is to show just how wrong Glenn Beck, the Tea Party, and the people that support them really are. I'm not telling anyone to get violent. This is never the answer. Blogging helps, so does taking medication if you need it. When I say to get a gun, it's not to be used in violence. Protection and food are my key ideas on why you should obtain a weapon.
Firearms, should have stricter laws. Any joker can get a license to obtain a weapon. As long as you have no criminal felony charges a gun can be in your hands in a day. Some sort of psychological exam should be conducted. This can get expensive, however there are other solutions. A questionnaire as basic as it sounds can weed out some unstable individuals. This may just be the barrier that holds these psychologically unsound people from obtaining a firearms license. Politicians have their work cut out for them. Hunting is a sport, shooting at targets can be fun, guns don't kill the people that hold them do. There are many people on the right side of the political spectrum that really don't want to change the gun laws. After the tragedy in Tuscan it was found that an unstable individual was able to legally purchase a high powered assault weapon. There is another argument here, if someone really wants a gun and can't legally buy one. Its not very hard to obtain one illegally in this country either. So why the talk?
Violence is the main issue, if people could think before acting that might be of help. Which brings me to Sarah Palin. The previous blog has the target poster that was posted on Palins website and facebook page. Instead of taking the high road, Sarah takes the sewer. Palin made herself out to be the victim of this tragedy. Instead of being the bigger person when several people criticized her she got below their level. This is unmistakeably the downfall of Mrs. Palin, how unfortunate. Another case of thinking before reacting. Palin had days to think before she spoke. Making herself the victim was the wrong answer here. There were 16 victims in this tragedy and Sarah Palin was not one of them. Palins 8 minute speech is below if one can tolerate the, "how dare you" attitude.

Glenn Beck posted "We must stand together against all violence" on his website. While he was holding a gun on the left hand side of his web page. Beck is a highly delusional paranoid. "I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong?" These are actual words out of his mouth. Here is your proof on inciting violence Mr. Beck. At the beginning of each week he takes some poor soul and does a weeks worth of material dedicated to make this person look to be satanic. It's quite disturbing and makes you think can we commit Beck? Beck takes his debates to a new level on his show. He posts in print the definition of ENEMY : one that is antagonistic to another; especially : one seeking to injure, overthrow, or confound an opponent. This reminds me of things he says every time I view his work (if you can call it that) when speaking of President Obama. Beck is the definition of an enemy. He speaks of the constitution frequently. The constitution stands for democracy, so it's appealing that he actually uses that to his advantage. Jon Stewarts moment of zen was Glenn Becks radio show. Beck stated this about Spiderman "It's one of the best shows I have ever seen, it was breathtaking." How can anyone say that this man isn't off his rocker? Thank you Mr. Stewart!

As for republican and democratic parties are concerned, violence is not the answer. Politicians on both sides need to find a common ground. The right and left may have different ideas and opinions, but both parties are Americans. Keep it civil, speak the truth. I know lies and politics go hand and hand it doesn't need to. Be true to yourself and your beliefs, money and power isn't everything.

Lastly, I want to thank President Obama for your moving speech at the Tuscan memorial service. Politics would be a brighter world if it was seen through the eyes of a child. Innocence is something American adults lack.
