Shameful






… with the Newtown families before the Rose Garden statement (Photo: Pete Souza)







So that’s how they act in the face of all the tragedies and in front of the families affected. Yes, I am angry, but anger and sadness do not move things forward. Here’s what I think I’ll do:

Step 1: Identify all Senators who voted NO (Harry Reid exempted because of his special role)

Step 2: Determine which Senators will be up for re-election in 2014

Step 3: Research all possible candidates for those seats

Step 4: Choose alternatives for each one – Democrat and Republican alike –

Step 5: Start active campaigning for the replacement candidates and keep at it until Election Day 2014.

I’m done reasoning with these cowards.


The agony in their faces, it's heartbreaking!

The pain that is etched in their faces, is painful to behold.

Dammit, the children have not been hurt enough? Look at the Childrens faces. They lost a brother or sister or mother that day. Such misery and despair in a childs face. They have become old before their time.

All for political gain, bastards!

No, Cha it's not over!

I think it works like this.. Juries are for alerts on posts that don't follow the SOP TOS. MIRT(MALICOIUS INTRUDER REMOVAL TEAM) is for posts such as the one auto zapped above.
