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.

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
