You know I often enjoy our dialogues
But I really cannot understand how any can believe the above.
Especially someone like yourself who seems to stay up to date with current events.
Maybe you misunderstood or I didn't flesh it out enough.
I said I believe SOME of these measures by Obama are an ATTEMPT to quell people's fear
and anger. And some people (who voted for him) will feel better and safer, thinking that he's doing SOMETHING (in THEIR minds).
I personally don't believe any actual gun-ban measures that are being proposed by various Democrats will do any good (with the exception of
background checks, and attention to mental health/guns, which I do support). I also strongly support the teams he's putting together to research the
causes of our violent culture, etc., but banning any gun at this time will be useless. I know that. But MANY of his OTHER voters feel all warm and
fuzzy about it and that's why he's doing it. To quell the fear.
Does that make more sense?
All these wars and he wants to reduce the worship or violence?
Unnacountable mercs in foreign soil and he wants to reduce the worship?
Overmedicated troops but let's not stop the war
Our interactions in war are a TOTALLY different matter.
And yes, I do believe he would like to see our country worship violence less. It's getting us in trouble and he knows that.
Still you believe what I quoted?
That he's trying to quell fears??? Yes! I believe that he is. His voters are turning to him and begging him to do something
so he's doing
something. Will it help overall or even change anything? Probably not. But it will maintain these certain voters' support by quelling their fears.
