Members Of Congress Were Not Elected To Offer Thoughts And Prayers

As the days press on and the news of the latest tragedy fades, the Republicans in Congress count on the public not to notice their inaction. Despite the repeated cries that this time things will be different, nothing changes, another massacre happens and the helpless Republicans in Congress begin the cycle again. The NRA and the gun manufactures count on it.

But we know that the Republicans in Congress, despite their ineptitude, can act with great urgency, even to the point of forming secret committees who meet in undisclosed locations crafting legislation that will impact the entire county.

They have no problem acting to take healthcare away from tens of millions of people.

They have no problem acting to fund tax breaks, on the backs of the poor and middle-class, for multinational corporations and the wealthiest among us.

They have no problem acting to harm the environment through a denial of climate change and massive deregulation.

They have no problem turning a blind-eye enabling the egregious behavior of Donald Trump and endangering our democracy.

They have no problem making phony appeals to religious freedom to defend the discriminatory practices of wedding cake bakers and photographers.

The have no problem with immigration policies that amount to ethnic cleansing or starving the poor, the elderly, and the disabled by gutting the programs that were put in place to help them live.

But when it comes to guns, when it comes to horrific mass murders at concerts, churches, and schools, when it comes to the safety of our nation’s children and their teachers, when it comes to the safety of people at a Bible study, movie, or concert, all they ever have to offer are thoughts and prayers.

Have you noticed.....after all the RW posts and all the opinions....and all the statements about the Parkland murders OF OUR CHILDREN........

HOW MANY (on the Right) HAVE EXPRESSED SADNESS? HORROR? DISGUST? GRIEF?

Anyone? It's not too late to respond, guys. Tell us how outraged you are.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Hollywood
