Okay. Now, I have seen it all!
I had thought I had seen and heard all the idiotic arguments against gun control advocacy and against the Affordable Health Care Act (dubbed ObamaCare by Obama Bashers) that could possibly be put forth until earlier today when I saw a meme on the Facebook wall of a "friend" of mine. Please note that I am referring to "idiotic" arguments; I am not referring to my politically conservative friends who put forth their personal perspectives using facts, logic, and sound reasoning.
Unbelievable as it may seem (at least to me), I can hardly believe any reasonable, logical thinking person would assert that ObamaCare is responsible for the deaths of 195,000 people via medical malpractice and summing it up by stating that a person is 600 times more likely to die using ObamaCare than by a semi-automatic rifle. Here, take a look at that meme I saw posted by my "friend" on Facebook:
I guess malpractice deaths do not occur if the decedent was private self-pay or had private health insurance not connected to ObamaCare.
Well, at any rate, I felt this uncontrollable, overwhelming desire to respond to the meme posting, so I responded in the comment section of that posting.
"Death is death. Guns were invented for the sole purpose of killing."
The poster of the meme responded with:
"We need to stop blaming the gun. We don't blame the car for driving drunk"
To which I responded:
"I stated a simple fact. It is not an opinion; it is not "blaming the gun" as alleged.
SIMPLE FACT: Guns were invented for the sole purpose of killing.
ANOTHER SIMPLE FACT: Cars were invented for the sole purpose of transportation.
Why argue or dispute simple facts; they are not opinions."
With that being written, I was immediately inspired to write a blog entry that I then scribed onto my other blog, Roland's Ramblings, You may read that entry if you so wish. Just go on over to
FACT: Guns make it easier to kill people.
