6 months...


That's June 23rd, 2012 on the left. January 4th, 2013 on the right. What a difference 6 months, a surgery, some internal bleeding, a complete change in diet and millions of tiny sweat beads makes. I want to feel accomplished- and I do, I swear I do. But deep down, this side by side just makes me want to cry for so many reasons. Wow, so much has changed. I guess I'm still processing...

my thoughts on gun control

This will be long. Luckily, the right to a public education allowed you an opportunity to learn how to read. Given that we are so interested in our rights, let us utilize that one for just a moment.

 AMENDMENT II

 -A well regulated militia-
 (regulate: 1. To control or direct by a rule, principle, method, etc. 2. To adjust to some standard or requirement as for amount, degree, etc. 3. To adjust so as to ensure accuracy of operation. 4. To put in good order. SOUNDBITE DEFINITION: ITS NOT A FREE FOR ALL)

 -being necessary-
 (aka reasonable: The amount of force necessary to protect oneself or one’s property. Reasonable force is a term associated with defending one’s person or property from a violent attack, theft, or other type of unlawful aggression. It may be used as a defense in a criminal trial or to defend oneself in a suit alleging tortious conduct. If one uses excessive force, or more than the force necessary for such protection, he or she may be considered to have forfeited the right to defense. [one more time: If one uses excessive force, he or she may be considered to have forfeited the right to defense.] SOUNDBITE DEFINITION: PROTECTION DOES NOT MEAN RIGHT TO STOCKPILE, USE IN AGGRESSION OR HAVE NEED FOR MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS)

 -to the security of a free state-
(security: the state of being free from danger or threat. SOUNDBITE DEFINITION: REMEMBER, THIS MEANS ALL OF US- INCLUDING ME, MY UTERUS, MY GAY NEIGHBOR YOU WONT LET GET MARRIED, AMERICAS CHILDREN YOU DON’T WANT TO FUND A BASIC EDUCATION FOR, AND THE MENTALLY ILL YOU DON’T THINK NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION- FROM YOUR ASSAULT RIFLE)

 the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (aka: If you can handle all that comes with the enormous responsibility, you get to have a gun. No one is suggesting that’s an issue. Your chronic disregard for careful,regulated use by ALL is what concerns the rest of us [because we’ve already heard you tell us numerous times how responsible YOU are]) Ok, i’m done. Please feel free to resume what you were saying about your rights and something about tyranny and maybe Stalin turning into Hitler on you as well. You know, whatever…
