Random Thoughts - Rush and Guns
Welcome to my world, where I have a couple of my infamous random thoughts today. First of all, the liberal lynch mob, after conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, branded a bigot and drugee by the lefties. Football is his hobby. He's a fan. His short stint with E.S.P.N. should have never happened. Rush makes his living with opinions, and right or wrong, network sportscasting is now too sensative for real opinions. His allegations that Eagle's Q.B. Donovan McNabb was overrated and pampered by the Philadelphia press because he's a black quarterback, was fairly accurate, but only opinion. Limbaugh is not a bigot, just straightforward, and not accustomed to the racial restrictions put on network sports announcers. As far as a drug addiction is concerned, I just don't know. The drugs mentioned in the liberal press were prescription and he has had some painful health problems of late. But, when you note where the allegations came from, the "National Enquirer", you have to wonder how accurate the information is. The weekly tabloid that prints alien abductions, hidden treasure, and Elvis sightings, is not a very reliable source.
And, after spending a lot of money, millions, on study after study, a federal review of the nation's gun control laws, including mandatory waiting periods and bans on certain weapons, found no proof that such restrictions have reduced firearm violence. As a life long owner of weapons and a firm believer in the second amendment to the Constitution, I could have saved them a lot of money on the studies and reviews. Weapons of any kind, from knives to swords to clubs to fire arms, always need the help of people to hurt people. They can't do it alone, as I see it ... I'm H.G. Listiak.
