THE 26 MURDERED SANDY HOOK SHOOTING VICTIMS

Enough of the wall-to-wall media coverage–and the eagerness of Members of Congress to enable it by getting in front of the cameras–of yesterday’s shooting aimed at Congressional Republicans practicing for a softball game.

May we remind everyone: NO ONE WAS KILLED.

Oh, but yes, even though Congress is elected by the people to represent the ‘actual’ people, it has become quite clear that the members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, seem to think their lives are worth more than ours.

Watching members like Rep. Joe Barton tear up all day on TV as he talks about the event stands in stark contrast to the way he commented on the shooting at Sandy Hook, when 20 six- and seven-year-old children and six adults were blown to bits.

But now, after 152 mass shootings in 2017, when many dozens died, it took an attack on ‘privileged’ Congress to care, even though in that one, no one died.

We can all moan about how everything bad is because we are so divided. But the division is less a division among the people as it is a division between the privileged and the hard-working people they want to marginalize further.
