Joe Biden threatened to make Obama get his gun control measures approved if it meant an Executive Order gets it done instead of using the legislative process, you know that pesky system designed to represent the People (Bloomberg link);
Obama gave Biden an end-of-the-month deadline to come up with recommendations for measures to stem deaths and injuries from firearms in the U.S. Since the Dec. 14 shootings at the Newtown, Connecticut, school that killed 20 children and six adults, advocates of more restrictions on firearms have revived long-stalled efforts to push for legislation to regulate or restrict access to firearms.
“Every once in a while there’s something that awakens the conscience of the country, and that tragic event did in a way like nothing I’ve seen in my career,” said Biden, 70.
Yeah, more so than 9-11 or Pearl Harbor, huh, you dingus. Everything in this administration is somehow historic, especially the way that this administration is taking away people’s rights. Yeah, they said that Bush was thrashing the Constitution, but in no way does what Bush did equal what this Administration plans.
Meanwhile speaking of dinguses (dingusi?), Piers Morgan, that scurvy-ridden dog at CNN had Joshua Boston on last night, who did a damn sight better job than Alex Jones did the night before, in this video from JP;
Of course, Peirs says that his neighbor’s cousin bought a dog from someone who has been in Afghanistan and Iraq, so Peirs knows exactly what Joshua experienced. Or something. Then he trots out General McChrystal like we’ve been fully expecting. When Joshua says he won’t be able to pass his weapons on to his children, Peirs asks why he’d want to pass his weapons to his children. Well, it’s been my experience that children get older, they don’t remain pre-teens forever, you dumbass dick.
But Joshua, as usual, makes a good accounting of himself. Much better than Alex Jones, certainly.
