I feel slighted.
You see, the tea party people along with their way out wackos, the gun totters who, bent on secession, pledge to take their assault weapons in hand to ward off our government from in acting responsible gun regulations, have stated, that until really challenged, they'll fight to the death to keep their 100 round clips. I just don't have that same arrogance of ego.
But, I do believe, our Congress is doing me and those who think like me a more terrible injustice by their inaction than they are in planning to enact gun control. Global warming is a more onerous threat to all life forms on earth than is the whole gun control issue. If Congress continues to pander to the minority vocal who insist on believing a scant few percent of hired scientists believing there is no problem ; rather than, listening to the vast majority of the active scientist who tell of a World heating up, all life is really in trouble.
For the few, rather than a majority controlling the acts of government is not what our founders anticipated. Slowly evolving the World's climate is heating up with dire consequences to ocean heights, to droughts, to famines, to plagues, and to super storms. If the few, who can hold up action for strictly political purposes or even financial gains, wag the tail of congressional action rather than the majority in either house then we and the rest of the World will suffer. The few must be circumvented from ignorantly working their will which could put the World in dire straits. The tipping point is out there and once reached there may be no going back. Our descendants are faced with being guinea pigs in a harsh, inhospitable World.
I hope, those who think as I do will become more vocal and join your voice with mine keeping World climate change out front and prominent.
