Reigning in Banks and Crazed Gun-Men, “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

April 7th, 2013

Today on “This Week w/George S.” a member of his gang could be heard to ask “…why the Democrats have done nothing to reign in the banks and Wall Street excesses?”  None had an answer and all of them seemed flabbergasted with the reality of it all. 

If I may, I would put forth that some combination of two most likely answers might reflect the reality of it all.  First, the Democrat party leaders seem to be on the same side as the banks and Wall Street, just as most of the mainstream seems to attribute only to the Republican leadership.  And, secondly, the modern Democratic leaders seem to prefer to blame everything on the Bush Administration even though such [likely failed] non-policies of the prior administration might be as much as a decade old – blame and excuses which then appear acceptable to their constituents because many of the constituents seem content to allow the Democrats to offer nothing but excuses, apparently. 


The prior matter was all that I originally wanted to address with this blog, but interestingly enough, I believe it was George S. himself at the very end of the show that spoke of a study out this week which suggested the best conduct for anyone who is part of a crowd when confronted with a crazed homicidal gun-man.  George said that the study suggested that the folks in a crowd would be best to run-away from any crazed homicidal gun-man.  Well…, duh!   And the study also may have suggested that folks in the crowd attempt to show resistance or fight back. 

Of course this begs the question, what do you do when you can’t merely run-away from a gun-man?  Obviously, from what was said on the show today, even this study seemed to suggest that an individual try to defend themselves somehow.  One can only wonder how one might adequately accomplish such a defense or what would one use to defend themselves against a homicidal maniac shooting at everyone – if the current administration and Mayor Bloomberg have their way.  Might the researchers suggest that folks throw buttered popcorn at the homicidal creep/gun-man?  And if the trend continues which has been promoted by folks like the current presidential administration and Mayor Bloomberg, that’s likely all a law-abiding citizen will ever have to defend themselves with as well.  Because it seems the currently promoted trend is to make it illegal for law-abiding Americans to even own any guns – regardless of the reasons for owning the gun.  What's more ironic, is that these same politicians and individuals who seek to curtail or eliminate private gun ownership most likely never go anywhere without an armed guard - or dozens of them.    

I suppose maybe I’ll have to try to review the show in its entirety and to find and read the study to see what is actually in it, no doubt.
