I’ve been extremely busy lately with my son’s birthday party and preparing for our road trip out West in early June. I haven’t had as much time as I would like to comment on the news, but I see that gun control has become the new Current Thing in the wake of the Uvalde mass shooting.
In between the focus on gun control and abortion (two issues on which I have always agreed with the Republican base), unqualified support for the war in Ukraine, record levels of illegal immigration and violent crime, sky high gas prices and inflation and the attempt to push domestic terrorism legislation and create a police state, I am really looking forward to the demise of the Democratic majority in November. Even if the GOP doesn’t deserve to return to power, these people clearly deserve to lose power.
Just from my jaded perspective, the Democrats really are making a strong case in recent months that, yes, they are worse than the Republicans. Gas prices alone are enough to throw them out. I’m sick of going broke for Ukraine. It is like they are trying to tick every possible box to highlight why they need to go. They are going the extra mile on every culture war front.
