Stick with the Caribbean vacations, stay away from the politics, girlfriend…
Dr. J. has a former colleague who despite her critical care bona fides always struck him as a dim bulb. It might be that she dressed like she was going out clubbing, rather than she was going to rounds. It might be that her hemlines were shorter than thou, skin was tanner than thou, and her make-up was heavier than thou. In other words, she didn’t present herself in a way that gave her the gravitas of her more outstanding peers (including peers that in Dr. J.’s opinion were equally or more attractive than she).
Interestingly she describes her political views as “Less Government is good.”
Nevertheless, she mysteriously posted this on her Facebook Page:
“Your right to bear arms does not trump my right to life”
Dr. J. googled this and found it verbatim in the comments on a Daily Kos page.
Dr. J.’s had a pair of thoughts.
First, this statement is a testament to the low-information voter that elected and re-elected the President. While they like the idea of small government, they’re perpetually suckered in by the desire to be perceived as caring. Being sucked in by the appeals to ‘care’ they vote again and again for the libs.
Second, the ‘right to bear arms’ never has trumped your ‘right to life.’ That false choice has to be one of the dumbest things Dr. J. has heard and he has a lot of lefty friends on Facebook that present false choices EVERYDAY. Since or founding, murder regardless of murder weapon has always been illegal. No legal gun owner would dare suggest your right to life is trumped by his right to bear arms, other than your life is forfeit should you put his in peril. Indeed, where the right to bear arms is most infringed (Chicago, much), the murder rate is obscenely high.
So enough with the sun and sand, massages and martinis. Time to crack a book, girlfrien’ (snap, snap, snap).
