Fear destroys brain cells

I've come to this conclusion after witnessing the gun rights advocates like LaPierre, the passing of laws to allow armed guards (pure police state stuff)in schools.Arkansas passing a law to allow concealed carry weapons in Churches and all the other concealed weapons laws and stand your ground laws (that poor teen who got shot because his GPS was not working and he drove into a gun nut's driveway accidentally) The irrationally and fear is so evident that the Fox/Rush/NRA fear machines are causing people's brain cells to die off and they lose rationality. I can not live my life in fear that some crazy tea-bagger gun toting idiot is going shoot up my community. You would think 20 innocent children and 6 adult educators would make people reconsider their stances on assault weapons but, NO, all they want to do is increase them in our society. I guess until one of those gun lovers is affected directly they will change their minds but that is doubtful because they probably can no longer be ration in their thinking because of the depletion of functioning brain cells.

Did you know that President Obama's inauguration address was the most divisive and partisan ever?!

According to Sean hannity at his opening comment tonight.

A good read about how members of Move on.org and the Tea Party came together - Transpartisanship

If we could all realize that the monied power brokers are dividing us and encouraging the division so they can conquer us.

"It was a mind-blowing political tableau: a co-founder of liberal bulwark MoveOn sitting in her Berkeley living room, laughing, sharing homemade blueberry scones and occasionally agreeing with a national Tea Party figure.

Truth is, MoveOn's Joan Blades - clad in Lululemon yoga pants and clogs - and Mark Meckler, sporting a leather cowboy vest, boots and a belt buckle larger than a baby's head - have been talking online and over the phone for a few years now. Quietly, until now.

"Transpartisanship" is the genteel word for what they're doing. Blades has been involved in similar types of projects for about a decade, but this is a fairly new school of political thought, which posits that people can come together to find some common ground without abandoning their core beliefs.

The gathering this month marked the first time Blades and Meckler had met in person, and each brought two like-minded friends. The occasion was the latest installment of Living Room Conversations ( www.livingroomconversations.org), Blades' latest national transpartisan project that she co-founded with former GOP operative Amanda Kathryn Roman, who lives in New Jersey."

(If more and more of us realize we have a lot more in common and that our brought and paid for politicians are out of touch, we can move this country forward into the 21st century)
