Huh March 26, 2014

You know what isn’t news?  Politicians acting like hypocrites.  Certainly not news.  But how about this: hypocritical politician actually gets in trouble for his hypocrisy.

A liberal Democrat getting busted, in San Francisco, and actually paying a penalty?  Stranger and stranger, indeed.  This guy liked him some gun control legislation, and then got arrested for illegal arms dealing.  Huh.

“A man was charged last year for threatening Yee over legislation that he proposed to limit rapid reloading of assault weapons. The bill would have prohibited the use of devices that allow users to swiftly reload military-style assault weapons. Lee also authored legislation that that would have required the state to study safe storage of firearms.”

And …

“A longtime California politician who was praised for his efforts to make government more transparent and authored gun control legislation was arrested Wednesday, accused of conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud.”

Huh.

Okay, I actually have no idea what “conspiracy to deal firearms” is. I’m pretty sure that dealing firearms isn’t a crime, and so conspiring to do the same probably isn’t, either.

Libs violently assault the English language all the time. What do we all expect? Soon we will not be able to understand each other at all. Methinks that’s their goal.

Maybe there is somebody you could ask?

I could just read the complaint, but it’s over 150 pages, so I don’t feel like it. Anyway, I saw another news article that actually said the right name of the offenses he was charged with so, as I suspected, it’s just a case of reporters not being very smart people.

There’s a whole bunch of Dems getting busted lately. It is weird.

My paranoid delusion is that they’re getting their dirty laundry aired well in advance of the election. Because Americans have short memories for politics.

And down the line, when the Justice Dept inevitably drops the ball on prosecution, nobody will notice or care.

Culture of corruption

“Because Americans have short memories for politics.”

Something tells me no Democrat in America remembers who Bob Filner is.

He was also the guy that wanted to ban violent video games in California back in 2011. The Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional. This revelation makes him sound like one of the politicians from Grand Theft Auto.

Americans and people have selective memories when it comes to politics period. Hypocrites are across the board. Politically speaking especially. Example: Trey Radel Florida GOP congressman tough on his drug testing of welfare recipients got busted for buying cocaine 3.5 grams in DC. There are hypocrites across the party lines on all issues.

There are many politicians from both parties who have this motto do not do as I do but as I say attitude. Is it right no it is wrong.

This is not just one party involved in doing this but both parties.

For every Democrat in a scandal there are just as many Republicans involved in scandals .

So, I hope as a liberal my views are welcome here.

Dem or Rep should be prosecuted for any malfeasance.
(can’t remember ever using that word in a sentence)

Yes, Liberal views are welcome here. We even let Mark in NJ comment, unmolested.
Well… kinda.

>> Americans and people have selective memories when it comes to politics period.

Generalization. Opinion-casting. Put the word “some” in front of Americans. And after Americans put “including me”.
