“A visibly emotional Biden indulged no such circumspection”
Without denigrating the true sorrow and horror over Sandy Hook, I wish our politicians were as moved to focus on long term solutions and addressing a culture deteriorating further into poverty and violence. Their shallow determination to fix the problem with legislation is realistically ineffective as long as the core issues are left unattended.
Those issues are huge. Unemployment, poverty, inadequate educational training, drug abuse, crime, lack of effective mental health care, the list continues. But as long as the legislators can say “look we passed a bill” so we’re doing our part," the core problems continue. I am the first to say background checks are needed, but that is just a very, very small piece of the puzzle we have to reconstruct.
Attached is an interview with a man that is so far left a progressive that it makes me itch, but he has some very succinct points on our violent culture.
