This is a bit of a tangent, but I need a place to rant...
Maryland's senior US Senator, Barbara Mikulski, came out with a statement today saying that the NRA should "come to the table" and be part of a discussion gun control. Not a particularly radical statement, IMO. Anyway, the part that's bothering me so much is people's reactions on Facebook and The Baltimore Sun's site. In addition to the expected vitriol that at least focusses on the subject, people have insulted... her weight, her hair color, her age, and her alleged "ugliness". Seriously, someone said we need "ugliness control, not gun control."
Talk about ad hominem attacks! What the hell is wrong with people?!
Yes, I've been on the internet long enough that I shouldn't be surprised. But it still upsets me.
Not that I want to encourage acting the same way in retaliation, but have some of you guys seen one of the country's leading gun lobby spokesmen and apologists for gun-related murders and violence?
They have the gall to call Barbara Mikulski unattractive when that side has this
misanthropic, dishonest fool as one of its premier spokespersons? I called him a "B & B Forehead Alien of the Week" in another thread. Call that rude if you like, but the man's extraordinarily unpleasant and a liar if you've ever seen any of his appearances in TV debates on gun control and violence....even moreso since last Friday.
Just saying, Gun Advocates. Check the air in your own tires before you go making fun of the other car's.
