S.E. Cupp and Michael Moore get Sweaty on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher

Recently on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher,  Bill had the very liberal Michael Moore and the very conservative S.E. Cupp.  I knew as soon as the conversation switched to Gun Control sparks would fly but I was more surprised to hear how obtuse the Right Wing Poster Girl’s argument was on Gun Registration.  I really don’t understand the logic in her thoughts.  S.E. Cupp, the very attractive conservative that tries to fool you into thinking she is smart by wearing glasses on her quite perfect face when, in fact, it only makes her look like every boy’s fantasy of their perfect librarian in a Playboy Magazine fantasy, actually said she feels that registering her gun(s) makes her feel like and I quote, ” a criminal”.  Hmmm, now how many criminals do you hear about that REGISTER THEIR WEAPONS???  This shows exactly what we all have long felt from the right wing politicos that they feel they should do what they want when they want and how ever they want without any accountability or responsibility to the rest of the citizens of this country.  I see articles and posts of how Ms. Cupp schooled Michael Moore on the stats of mass shootings but I don’t see anyone stepping up and challenging her on this ridiculous notion that gun owners shouldn’t register their weapons in case they are stolen or lost and then used in a crime so we can track it down from step one and follow the trail to the ACTUAL CRIMINAL!

Why do most if not all of the Right Wing gun owners think this way?  It’s quite disturbing to think that most if not all mass shootings are done by RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS and the same club that those nut jobs are linked to do not want to be linked to their own guns.  Then why register your vehicle and when it gets stolen just throw up your arms(with hands) and say, “Oh well guess I’ll just buy another car…Touche’. ”  In fact lets just stop registering everything…including with whom we MARRY.  That’s right, lets stop registering who we decide to love and spend the rest of our lives with (or a few weeks if you are a celebrity) that way no one will know on any database just who it is we have living with us and sharing are our lives.  The Conservative Right wants to make sure just those that they approve of get married but we as a whole or 90% of the country to be exact want a Gun Registration and Background Checks but we don’t matter, just the ones that lost the last two elections do.  The Right Wing Conservatives are attacking and want to impeach President Obama over Benghazi yet they kept quiet and still do over the 13 Embassy attacks during George W. Bush’s 8 years in office.  Oh yeah, there’s nothing fishy about those 13 Embassy attacks but that one under Obama, now that one was just unacceptable!

Lastly I would like to speak on the point that Fox News and the Conservatives are having a boner over.  Yes that fact is that mass shootings are on the decline even though there just was one in New Orleans last weekend during a Mother’s Day Parade.  How about we change the opponent you tell that fact to.  How about you stand in front of the families of the dead and the survivors of the Aurora Colorado shootings?  How about you give those statistics to families of those children killed in the Sandy Hook shootings?  And after you tell them not to worry, the shootings are going down….they are less and less every year.  I bet you all of the Gold in Fort Knox that they could give two shits about your stupid statistics because there are no statistics that you can show them that will bring their amazing and beautiful children back.  It wouldn’t matter if Columbine never happened, nor Aurora or any of the other school shootings that have happen in the years passed.  Even if nothing terrible had happened in the 20 years before December 14, 2013, nothing else matters but to protect our citizens and their children so it doesn’t happen again.  And if registering your gun is that small step that you can take to make sure you did what was right in case your gun gets stolen or lost or if allowing yourself to get a background check to make sure that others that try to buy a gun are not in fact mentally ill or have an ACTUAL criminal past…..then why not?  I feel those that do not want a registry or background checks are hiding something and those that speak out about not wanting that to happen should be moved to the top of the scrutiny list.

Now as I know that Ms. Cupp is actually very smart, I don’t completely mean to use her political sides antics against them but I am just appalled that someone her age wouldn’t be able to see through her elders’ antics of the past.  Its time there is a Right Wing Talking Head that uses their common sense.  Let there be a day that I can write or say that last sentence without hearing a sarcastic chuckle in my head that exclaims, “OXYMORON!”

Here’s the bottom line…if I can not get a $7.25 an hour job without getting a background check and then being “approved” to ask you for your Speedy card, then you shouldn’t own a weapon unless you get a background check as well.

 

Thank you Sandy Hook Teachers!!

Tuesday night I began to get messages and comments left on my Facebook page from the teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut.  They have received my Inspiration Angels that I sent a week after the tragedy.  They began telling me so many wonderful things.  I seriously had to sit back in my chair for a while and compose myself.  It was truly heartwarming to hear from one teacher that out of all of the donations given, MY Inspiration Angels have seemed to comfort them and bring smiles back on to the faces of those that have gone through something that you and I have only experienced in our worst nightmares.  I couldn’t have asked for a better compliment.  I am truly touched and humbled by the amazing responses.  You can see for yourself on my page at : https://www.facebook.com/pages/TBT-Creations-Thoughts-Become-Things/146252698756981?ref=hl

After receiving all of these awesome responses I feel it only necessary to now begin to donating a part of each sale from every Inspiration Angel necklace sold.  I am donating $3 per necklace sold and you can find out how to order from my Etsy Page :

This has been a MOST INSPIRING WEEK!  SPREAD THE WORD!!  Lets keep the cycle of giving alive!  

Panic at the NRA and Gun owners Disco, We don’t want your handguns!!!

I am getting a little sick of the mass hysteria of the NRA and the other gun owners thinking Obama and the liberals want ALL of their guns!  Like Balky from Perfect Strangers would say, “Well of course not, Don’t be RidiculOOS!”

Let’s make this abundantly clear : You can have your handguns and your hunting rifles BUT give up and stop selling MILITARY STYLE WEAPONS such as ASSAULT RIFLES AND STOP PROVIDING 100 ROUND CLIPS!!!  This diversion of the facts and the truth is giving me a GOP headache that’s reminiscent of the Romney/Ryan campaign.  Seriously, this has got to stop!

The weapons that killed the men, women and children in the movie theater in Colorado and that killed the women and children in Newtown Connecticut were military style assault rifles!  Not handguns!  The shooters had way too much ammo, 100 round clips, that should not be legal for anyone that is NOT in the military.  The hand gun that was used in Newtown was used to kill Adam Lanza.  I have nothing against that handgun.

Please, lets not get fooled into thinking that ALL of our guns are going to be collected….Just the ones that are made for mass destruction, that’s all.  You don’t need armor piercing bullets because deers don’t wear bullet proof vests…..you don’t need assault rifles with 100 round clips because those deers and wildlife you want to shoot are not assaulting you.

It’s time to get real!  Stop the panic, it’s not real!  I have a feeling that 2013 is going to bring a lot of change but, unfortunately, I think along with that change will bring a lot of resistance to that change by old institutions and old thinking.  I hope common sense will come out on top, actually I know it will but unfortunately, I think it will come with more heartache due to those that can not evolve.

 

TBT Creations sending Inspiration Angels to Newtown Connecticut

I have the Inspiration Angels packaged with names of some of the staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School labelled with each Angel. It takes a lot out of me just to write their names down and have to leave a few out due to this catastrophe. I hope they will get to them..I know they will get to them and when they do it will be right when they need them. I wish this was under different circumstances but I know I am doing the work given to me. Now I have to write the letter that will go with them. This may take a while to get down, not that I will leave them a book but I may have to stop from time to time to collect myself. Thank you all for your support and kind words. Please take some time when you can to stop over to the Facebook page to lend a kind word and some support to that community :

Inspiration Angels are on there way to Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown Connecticut

I have created these necklaces for the purpose of those with heavy hearts and those that are going through rough times.  I think it fitting I send them to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut.

Being a parent of a 4 year old girl and a 10 year old boy myself, I can not imagine what they are going through right now.  I can not imagine getting the  phone call.  I can not imagine having to wait outside the school wondering if your child was alive or…  I can not imagine the dread and then sorrow one would feel getting the worst news ever possible.

I want the parents, teachers and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary to know that there ARE good people out there.  There ARE people that are sending them love and hope.  My Inspiration Angels are meant to give the wearer some hope.  They are meant to remind the wearer that there still is something to be grateful for.  During these times it will be tough to remember that.  There faith may be shaken, I understand.  Faith in humanity.  Faith in society.  Faith in government.  Faith in the good in the world.  Well I am here to show them one of the first signs that people not of there town or state DO care.  We are EVERYWHERE.  We are standing by Newtown Connecticut with are arms wide open.  With a tear running down our cheek letting them know to cry, to mourn and to remember those amazing children and teachers that lost there lives.  But remember them alive.  Remember the awesome times you shared a laugh with them.  The feelings you had when you witnessed them showing their love for someone else.  They were here on Earth to give us those memories.  We will not forget them.  Ever.

I am not only sending the Inspiration Angels to the school district but also to different churches in the community.  I am sending my entire supply.

And when they arrive to you Newtown remember to Spin those Wings and Remember your Blessings.  They will be watching and loving you from above.

Sandy Elementary Shooting and Gun Laws, Who are these laws really protecting?

I can barely speak nor type about the tragedy in Newton, Conn.  An Elementary school? REALLY???!!!!  A mall yesterday and now a children’s school today….when are these “Right to bare arms” laws going to start protecting us??? Whose Constitutional rights are being protected?  Ours or the killers?  The victims or the murderer?

We keep hearing about how “we” have to protect our Gun Rights so we can Protect ourselves from those that want to hurt us but ALL I keep seeing is how those Gun Rights keep guns in the hands of those that WANT to harm us…when I hear a story of how someone with those same Gun rights have PREVENTED somebody from creating this type of horrendous act then I will be on board but until then we need to TAKE AWAY the guns FIRST and then give them to those that are mentally stable…

AGAIN GUNS HAVE NEVER PREVENTED THIS KIND OF THING FROM HAPPENING, IT HAS ONLY CREATED THE PROBLEM!!!

AND NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT, IT IS NOT THE ANSWER TO ARM OUR TEACHERS, SALES CLERKS AND CITIZENS!!!

WE WERE ALL ARMED ONCE REMEMBER? IT WAS CALLED THE OLD WEST AND THERE WERE KILLINGS EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY! HENCE THE REASON GUN LAWS WERE MADE!!!

I need to wrap my head around this before I can write anymore.  I have a 4 yr old daughter with me right now and I have a 10 yr old son that lives with his mother, my ex-wife…..I can’t imagine getting the phone call that about 18 sets of parents have gotten today.  Please remember that when you are standing up for your rights to have and to hold your weapons…..Please remember that your children are the ones that you need to have and to hold on to because there are too many families today that can not do that any longer.

We all need to close our eyes and think hard about this and learn and know what is truly important : LOVE.  Love one another.  Feel amazing feelings and know that LOVE is the only way to prevent these type of tragedies.  You don’t need a license to get LOVE.  You just need patience and understanding.  Access to LOVE instead of GUNS could have prevent this from happening.  We will probably find out that the gunman was mentally unstable and killed his parents, the body at his home and his mother that worked in the school….maybe they were in the process of getting him help or maybe they ignored the signs until it was too late…either way if you know someone that shows signs of being mentally unstable PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR GUNS ARE NOT WITHIN THEIR REACH OR IF YOU KNOW THAT THEY HAVE GUNS AND BULLET PROOF VESTS THEN CALL THE DAMN POLICE!!!!  TELL SOMEONE!!!  COMMUNICATE BEFORE THIS EVER HAPPENS AGAIN!  STOP THINKING IT WON’T HAPPEN THERE!  STOP THINKING “HE” OR “SHE” WOULD NEVER……well they can and they would and they will if nothing is done to prevent it.
