Think Progress Makes Lazy and Absurd Comparison Between Lettuce and Guns

If we’re going to debate the Second Amendment, that’s all fine and dandy, but don’t waste our time with this pedantic and redundant nonsense.

Second Amendment

I’m all for a good, hearty debate regarding the Second Amendment, but that seems increasingly unlikely in this current political climate.

Our founding fathers made a promise to us that we would be a self-sufficient populace.  They saw the oppression of tyranny firsthand, living under colonial British rule for years before finally revolting and forming the greatest nation to ever grace this planet.

In order to protect us from a similar fate, they installed the Second Amendment, lending a great deal of credence to the idea that those who oppose the right to bear arms do so in an effort to subvert our entire American nation.

Worse still; the anti-gun crowd continues to radicalize their argument in order to take the focus off of the Second Amendment’s true nature.  Instead of pontificating on the insurance it provides against tyranny, the left is currently comparing guns to Romaine lettuce.

Worse still is the distortion of facts used to galvanize the left’s oppressive hopes.

The organization bolstered its astonishment by claiming, “The number of Americans who die from food-borne illness every year — 3,000 according to the CDC — is dwarfed by the 30,000-plus annual fatalities caused by guns in America.”

The claim of 30,000-plus annual firearm deaths is a go-to tactic for the left, one whereby they combine actual homicides, of which there are approximately 11,000, with accidental gun deaths, of which there are approximately 500, and with suicides, which number roughly 22,000. The numbers are then simply presented as “30,000-plus annual fatalities,” giving the imprecision that the point is 30,000-plus deaths due to gun violence.

Either this is the work of some intern at Think Progress who saw that “lettuce” was trending and hoped to catch some collateral attention, or this is the most imbecilic argument regarding the Second Amendment that we’ve seen in some time.

If we’re going to debate the Second Amendment, that’s all fine and dandy, but don’t waste our time with this pedantic and redundant nonsense.

Published

on

Comedian Tracy Morgan recently came to the defense of President Trump, saying that people who are criticizing his response to the coronavirus crisis should focus on supporting each other instead, especially while this outbreak is ongoing. Morgan spoke on the “Today” show Wednesday saying, “The struggle is real. People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country got sick. So, it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.” “Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So, let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do,” Morgan went on to say. WATCH: https://twitter.com/kashjackson2018/status/1247530918799003648?s=21 Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Democrats have slammed Trump for downplayingthe threat of the virus before it arrived in America and for a lack of leadership they say Trump has displayed since its arrival. Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died.

Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died. Morgan is spot on here. There’s far more constructing things we could be doing with our time right now than attacking President Trump. The leftist media has made this whole outbreak into an excuse for further ripping the country apart by slamming the president over and over again, especially about things he…

Nikki Haley Says Management Of Coronavirus Not Trump’s Responsibility, But Governors

Published

on

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley recently stated that victories and failures in the battle against the coronavirus that has swept across the country in the last month falls on the shoulders of governors and is there responsibility to handle, not the president’s. And you know what, she’s absolutely right. Haley, who’s most recent posting included being a United States ambassador to the United Nations, penned a piece for the NY Times that was published on Wednesday that delved into the reasons why governors are the ones ultimately responsible for responding to the coronavirus crisis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “In today’s crisis, governors from both parties have exemplified strong leadership,” she wrote. “They know their residents and their state’s needs better than anyone in the federal government. In the state-federal partnership, governors are in the best position to control what happens on the ground, better than any president could be.” Haley explained that governors are responsible for connecting federal efforts from organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the cities and counties that have the most need. She added that governors are supposed to be aware of their states’ supplies for emergency situations and have the relationships with local leaders to best address the situation. “As our highest nationally elected leader, of course President Trump has enormous responsibility in this unprecedented crisis, and he is marshaling the federal response on a massive scale. But in implementing plans to save people’s lives and keep our economy afloat, look no further than the governors,” Haley penned. Haley went on to say that the coronavirus serves as a reminder of the importance of federalism and why it’s so critical to allow individual states and their governments to handle these sort of situations noting, “Governors are the most successful when…
