It’s always tough to write editorials because you run the risk of ticking people off in the process.
But this time I guess I will hit a topic that will cost me readers, loose me advertisers, and make others toss this right into the trash and scream “liberal media.”
So here is the deal, now that I’m traveling the country more, I have noticed in more rural areas, an interesting anger and rage.
A rage that usually starts off with “Them damn liberals”. Followed by, “this is why I have my guns.” Ending with my favorite that I try not to laugh may butt off when I hear, “I can protect my self from the government and the druggies”.
What the hell are these people thinking? They have 4,000 guns in their house, but only two hands to shoot with, and are planning for this apocalyptic end-of-the world scenario where they will protect themselves from the government, the liberals, and terrorists. WHA..WHA… WHAT??
NEWS FLASH!! You cannot fight the govern- ment, regardless of how few guns you register. The US can take over a country AND your house faster than you can say “Double Ditto.” Sadaam had a bigger house and more unregistered guns than you. What makes you so special?
As for the druggies, didn’t super-druggie Rush Limbaugh say put them on an island? I guess he’s still packing. Dope fiends are more likely to rob from family like is was Christmas in July than want your vintage beer can collection.
Whoever doesn’t share this paranoid view of the country going to hell and apparently want to steal your money, are DAMN LIBERALS.
Normally, I don’t care much for labels, but as one West Virginian just pointed out to me, since I’m not part of the NRA, though I support gun ownership, I too am a “DAMN LIBERAL.”
